View Full Version : Formula A - IA won't change tires

Hi all

Couldn't find any thread to asnwer my question :(

I'm into FA WC in career mode, doing 100% length races (55-70 laps).
IA will never pit during the race to change tires, but mine are worn in 20-30 laps.

This is totally unrealistic.
Did I miss something in the settings, or should I ignore tire wear indicator and do the full race without changing tires ?

Thanks :)

Yes, it's a known issue the AI don't pit in FA...only thing you can do really is shorten your races as to avoid having to make a pitstop...

Ok thanks.

I assume AI never pits for tire change, but only for refueling in "refuling allowed" races like FB ou GT
I wonder why this has never been patched :(

What happens if I do the 70 laps without changing tire ?

You probably won't finish the race (or at least not in front) :cool:

One thing that you can do is a private online lobby, but only with A.I. Then, you set the option "Mandatory pit stop" to "yes". I donīt know if they will do a tire change, but at least they will enter the pits. Not a perfect solution but itīs something

Here's a thread about the subject...

Got it

I'll keep the 100% length but I disabled tire wear in settings.
Better solution for me as a half way race is too easy, no satisfaction at all when the race is finished :p

I'll restore tire wear when I'm done with FA

Have you tried the medium/hard compounds to last the race distance?
