Softs don't help me in the Surtees, but I'd be very surprised if you could do the whole race on one set of softs.

I can't tell you that.
The only chance I have of beating you is for you to make a strategic error. :-X

what do yous think about having this race double points due to the intensity, so almost like something like the Bathurst 1000

You will beat me, in hours of practice I have only completed 3 laps and never done more that 1 and third laps before my car is wrecked

The only problem with that is is that it's not fair on people who can't make this round for whatever reason.

Yeah I wasn't paying attention and should have spoken up sooner....

I had assumed it was only the practice server that had 100% damage.
I haven't found any user variable that controls how much engine damage you suffer from frontal impacts even when the engine is in the rear!
And searching the Kunos forums has came up empty so far.
As it is it seems that any impact, even a glancing blow where the actually impact is quite low compared to your ground speed, causes total engine loss.
It seems some cars suffer it and others don't so Kunos is keeping something from us which seems to be the only thing Race sim developers are good at.

The races have all been at 100% damage for a long  time. It could be that any impact of enough speed translates to engine damage no matter where the engine is located. Bacchulum will have to take some Porsches and smash them into the fence ;)

But this is the first time we are using a Mod.(at least in my time) So it has been perfectly fine to run 100% damage in the past, using this mod has highlighted a experience destroying fault in the game. If I can't get to the bottom of this hit 'n' miss damage system we might consider running lower damage when any particular car or mod demonstrates this behaviour.

Yeah, fair call, if you reckon it's a mod thing and not an inherent AC fault. It would be a shame to go softer on the gearbox/engine damage through mis-driving though, as that's a "feature" of these older cars. Hopefully you can find a way to tone down the impact damage.

If it helps you compare cars, I gave the barriers a few hits in the Surtees and only copped aero damage.
