View Full Version : Confused - general questions & pitstops

07-07-2015, 18:27
Hi all,

Relative noob to this whole racing sim experience - having been raised on a diet of Gran Truismo's, Forza's and the odd F1 title.

I am really wanting to dedicate the time to this, and have trawled the forum and tried to read as many posts as possible - but being a bit of a late comer (only had the game a fortnight) I seem to be confusing myself and going in circles.

So a few questions (I'm on PS4 btw).

Pit strategy

I get that the car set up and pit strategy are (at the moment) independent of each other. But how comes the pit strategy only lets you set a max tire pressure of 2.0 (can't remember what minimum is, whilst the tuning set up offers greater variances?

Is there a way to schedule a stop at a specific point in the race - e.g. say lap 25 of a 50 lap race the pit board gets put out calling you in? Or do you have to go by tyre wear / fuel depletion?

How comes when setting a pit strategy, the fuel refill can only have a minimum of your initial tuning set up fuel load? e.g tuning set up has a fuel load of 50l, minimum fuel delivery at a pit stop is then 50l (so lets say you only need 75l of fuel to finish a race, your forced to take 100l in total)?

General questions

Since installing 2.0 patch on PS4, should I clear my save file and start a new career? Are there any settings which are 'hard saved' into the game despite the patch addressing some settings?

I seem to have zero comms on my pit radio during career. Is this right? Seems fine during a solo weekend or quick race.

Apologies if these have all been addressed before - I've read so many patch notes, comments and threads my heads spinning. And please don't take these questions / comments as a moan either. I appreciate the bug fixing will take some time and appreciate the effort and education being put in. If we want the rainbow, we have to put up with the rain:p

I also have similar question, I filled with enough fuel to take me to the end of the race without making a pit stop. I had an incident which required me make a pit stop for repairs; I started to modify the pit stop on the fly because i did not want any more fuel but only to repair damage, and I could not reduce fuel to "0" liters, only to a preset minimum. How do you get rid of this "minimum" limit?

everything you need to know my man, hopefully all will be fixed soon and we wont have to go through these pains.
