View Full Version : Mechanical failures question

Quick question, in races where mechanical failures have been turned off, is one's pace still affected by high engine or brake temps?

if I see failures are off i wind back the cooling settings to zero and my car smokes but of course doesn't fail. Am i losing power and brakes though?

Engine won't fail, and brakes won't get damaged.
But steel brakes above 650c will still lose their bite.
So if you cook the brakes with 0% ducts in a GT3 or Indy you'll be losing lap time because you're having to brake way early.
