How does it work? Has limited number of uses per lap or...
I noticed it fully reacharges once it's over without the need for braking.

I'm guessing that this is the kers button?
When can it be used during a race?

Same question was asked just a few minutes ago here (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?45522-Indycar-kers)

Don't know the actual numbers, but it's a push-to-pass system so probably has a limited number of 'uses'. We'll get the full info I'm sure once Casey posts his 'physics of' thread in a day or two :).

Testing in quick race I had 10 bursts per session, each burst lasts 20 seconds. Activated by KERS single press (no need to hold the button, it stays active until the charge is depleted). It recharges immediately and can be reused immediately.

EDIT: Qualifying is limited to one burst

From the IndyCar series website:


Verizon IndyCar Series drivers will have 10 uses of the overtake system for all road/street course races, with 20 seconds per push at NOLA Motorsports Park, Long Beach, Barber Motorsports Park, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, Toronto and Mid-Ohio.

Races at Brasilia (Brazil), St. Petersburg, Detroit (two races) and Sonoma Raceway will carry 15 seconds per activation.

I really don't like the term "push-to-pass". Push-to-pass is what bad players do online when overtaking.

If it's 10 of them, is there an indicator anywhere in the Motec display?

But it's also what actual racing drivers do in the real world ;)

You've been watching the 90's BTCC races again, haven't you!

True, but I still don't like push-to-pass, even worse is the pit-to-pass technique.

Or maybe just last year's DTM race from Red Bull Ring.....

"Schieb ihn raus!!" = "Push him out!!"

Although that's not the official meaning of "Push-to-Pass" ;)

Its over-boost of 0.1 bar from the turbo when you hit the KERS button.
