Has anyone been having problems with jammed wheel nuts during pit stops? My buddy who uses a wheel says it never happens to him but it almost always happens to me when I pit and I use a controller. Does this happen to you and are you using a wheel or gamepad.

It happens to me too and I use a controller. It doesn't happen every time I put, but when it happens I usually 'lose a wheel nut' three times in a row before being released.

Nothing worse than jammed nuts

HAHAHAHAHAHA!

My buddy had a battery issue in the McLaren P1 and I've also had a problem with refueling

Seems constant on my pit stops. Every time I go into the pits I'm dreading here about the wheel nut. Then the stupid man at the front of the car jumps the wrong side into the traffic and I drive through him.

Another thing broken in game

Only happened once to me, but when it did, the stig told me three times about it

Driving with a wheel and this happens about every second pit stop. They should have a training program for the crew 'cause this is getting frustrating! Maybe higher classes with more professional crews will have less issues, not sure since I'm driving Ginetta Juniors in career at the moment.

I'm on xbox one mate.

I noticed last night on a dry bath hurst track doing a gt4 main race that my wheel but jammed and also the default tyres where extreme wets on a bone dry track. This was the default pit strategy as well so now I check when hitting pit lane to make sure they aren't putting stupid tyres

Every time I've had this it's been after I've mangled the front end of the car and the wheel's come off. I wonder if it's dependent on a certain amount of damage?

I have had this happen about every pit stop, although last night I had a stop where I had a clutch issue. I don't think I have ever had a clean pit stop.

I took the lead in a 30 lap race at Le Mans because it started to rain and I stayed out while the other cars pitted. I was struggling pretty bad anyway so the rain just made it worse. I came in to pit that lap and when I pitted the rain stopped so I just stayed on the dry tires. Then the dreaded wheel nut problems happened. When I got back I was in 4th. The other guys are still on wets and it is now dry. So they had to pit again. Long story short I think I may have won because while I was stuck in the pits while the track was drying and making the other drivers pit again. If it sounds confusing that is because I was still confused for a bit afterward too.

Ive had it a few times, not often. Only thing ive not actually had is a mechanical problem.
