Does anybody know why the first AL gear I socked out sometimes? I am driving get the Caterham in some events and cannot adjust the final gear ratio. The I dividing gears are adjustable just not the one that makes the overall adjustment for better acceleration or better top end...

Hi there....
All gears and final ratios are based on real life cars, so if it's not there in the game then that is how it should be.

OK. Sounds reasonable. I am just accustomed to games that allow final adjustments to every car on game. It is taking a little time to get used to a game that follows reality so closely. Also, I had no idea that a Caterham would be limited to a closed transmission.

Thank you for the prompt reply.

More than real life: I tried a car another day (don't remember which now), but engine would go nuts after engaging 6th gear. Went to pits and setup, and looking at the gears the 6th gear was at the same level with the 5th gear on "game default" setup... (6 gears was maximum on that car). Moved the 6th gear slider a bit, and issue solved...

Don't forget there is a setup bug that will give you the wrong values (sometimes) so always check the setup first to be on the safe side.

The Caterham are maddeningly slow and sluggish through the gears. Why have 5 gears if you will never need to get out of 4th?

Depends what track you are on I suppose.
Also some GT3 cars are similar IRL where they don't use 6th gear very often.
