x5 is max multiplier offline in CM.
Tyres wear quickly to 80% (tyre wear scale 13 in Sidekick) but then the deg. rate slows down.
Rears went quickly, giving a big imbalance, but around lap 4 the rears plateaued while the fronts kept at the higher rate, slowly bring the balance back.
Therefore, as the race wears on and balance comes back it would be better to stay out than pit for new tyres.

I say, max out fuel and tyre multiplier, and even if it doesn't force a pitstop, it will add variability.

I have maxed both at at 500%  which is the max the server will allow

Hopefully the update hasn't changed the validity of that testing, we'll find out in the morning. ;)
Running 500% fuel will at least force a full tank, and the ensuing change in feel is it burns off.
Maybe someone can pull a (Gordon) Murray and make a pit stop work. ;)

The only problem is if someone downloads the mod late, like say on Thursday, they will get a version later than the server.

And the update is said to improve PC performance, an issue for me!  :-[

I did a race with Mael last night and was a lot of fun,  I picked this combo because I had driven it a lot in iracing many moons ago and even though it was such a long time ago it seems very very similar, the car is easy to spin just like a skippy should be :)  its all about racing lines, apex and exits in this gutless little beast.

I have removed the 500% tyre wear and fuel usage because carrying all that extra fuel and having all that extra tyre wear took a bit of fun out of these cars for me and just made it a compulsory pit stop which you must change at least tyres, I am doing fuel and tyres because I can  8) ;D and fuelling takes a fraction of the time a tyre change takes.

Really need longer races for fuel usage and tyre wear to work imho


I pitted 2 laps before mael and we were close to each other at that point, but when I came out I did a few fastest laps and was like 4 seconds behind mael after his pit stop, so I am not sure if the undercut works here,  we both overshot our pits, maybe I overshot mine more, who knows, time will tell  :o 8) ::)
