Hi,

Sounds like you have changed the gear ratios of the Caterham Seven so that ratios for gear 3 and 4 are the same. The Seven has extremely limited gear ratio options (maybe because it's a road car, I'm not sure). Change the gear ratios so they are all different - on the Seven that may mean making 5th gear as high as it will go and 1st gear low as possible. It's tempting to make 5th gear shorter as the Seven is rather lacking in power and 5th is more like an economy gear, but afraid it's not an option! ;)

I had this yesterday in some career race, don't remember the car, some older weaker one. The gearbox was completely off, 3rd gear was shorter than the 2nd and 4th reached the limiter way too early. I tried to change the gears but didn't find the option, I found out about an hour later.

I have the same problem with the caterham, 3rd anx 4th gears are the same i have not changed the settings aswell as the above gamer and please dont assume we havent checked before reporting this bug, especialy as this game seems to have an endless supply of bugs,
I had the same problem with the ford escort around brands hatch 2nd and 3rd gears were the same.
And again on donnington with the escort 3rd and 4th gear the same
Whats with getting heat into the tyres on the caterham? Lap after lap and the tyres struggle to show heat.
Where is the sway bar adjustment on the caterham? Why dont you call it anti roll bar?
why cant you adjust more on the caterham? You would be able to in real life
front and rear bump stop stays on 0mm when you adjust, does it alter the cars setup or does it not do anything?

another bug to add to the list

It has nothing to do with gear ratios it's a glitch which is intermittent ,you can use said car in solo event or free practice mode and all is well but sometimes in career mode without changing a thing it's like a gear is missing but in the next race it's back to working fine

how is this nothing to do with gear ratios?
When you go onto setup 3rd and 4th gear on the escort ( fourth and fifth on the caterham ) have the same ratio, you have to change them or you redline going down the straight as you essentialy have no top gear

Yes I understand but the game is doing that to the gears itself sometimes in career mode in other modes the gearing is fine for example the rs1600 is 1st 2.97,2nd2.00,3rd1.39 and 4th1.00 ratios so it's still a glitch within the game that's changing the ratio of say 3rd and 4th to the same

Hi, I'm experiencing the same issue in rookie career mode, first with the Mercedes DTM and now with the Escort MK1. Qualifying was fine but when it comes to the race, the ratios make the car un-drivable. On the Mercedes, the ratio for 5th gear would red line the car and send it into a spin. Similarly with the Ford Escort, the car would redline in 4th at 90 mph. I checked the ratios on the Mercedes after I quit out of the first event and moved on to the next. Whatever I set the ratios as in free practise, they would revert back to this corrupt state causing me to spin, even though I attempted to save the settings. It has made he career mode unplayable for me. :(

I can confirm this is the same on the PC version with the Caterham as well... you have to go into your garage and manually change the 4th and 5th gear ratios and save the setup for all locations.

i play on pc, but have the same bug,too.

i have sometimes that gearbox bug on different cars, too.

i switch the gears manually and sometimes the ratio on 2 gears is the same and other gear ratios seem to be false,too.

thats strange bug for me.
i need to go into the setup and reset to defaults, then gearbox ratio seem to be ok for this car. after i restart the game most time gear ratios broken again.

Same issue here, happening with multiple cars, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo/Renault 98 F1/Sierra Cosworth.
I haven't altered anything, wouldn't know where to start. Playing on xbone, controller, auto gears. I'm not the best at racing games but having limited top speed is making me worse.

+1 Having this glitch too with the Caterham and 3rd & 4th gears.

Oh yes the Caterham too, thanks for reminding me Manic. A real shame as this is my only issue with this game unfortunately it's becoming game breaking.

Having same problem with the BMW 320 on the GT5 Historic series. 3rd gear way too short, nearly non-existant. So have to change the gear ratios before each session otherwise they return again. I.e. I change them after a lap in practice after finding the problem, ok for rest of practice, but then go to qualy and its back again... :(

Has this gearbox issue been officially acknowledged by the development team? I'd feel a lot more comfortable knowing it was being looked at, as long as it doesn't appear on the known Xbox one issues/technical difficulties thread I'll be worried.

The problem with the Caterham seems to be that all the Gear ratios are fixed, with 1st and 6th being locked and there only being 3 other ratios available for the remaining 4 gears.
