So, this is happening with a number of cars. Always starting out on Stable set up. Slowly building them up to match each track. Anyway, exiting the fast corners, my outside wheels are always smoking hard. I can't tell if its my front wheels or my rears - maybe I'm turning the front wheels to much, or maybe the differentials are screwed. Maybe I'm just understeering hard. Idk. As speed picks up, there goes the smoke.

Is that a differential issue? Am I driving the car too hard?

I'm pretty sure it's a bug that's been picked up by myself and others as well . I don't think your doing anything wrong

Happens to mee when I try to push a car that's very understeery, like the aston.

You will shread tyres fast, tune it or change your driving line :P

Had this happen to me in the Ginetta GT4 at Road America when I'd go around the carousel. The front left tire was smoking like crazy and after 6 laps the tire wear indicator showed the tire was half gone and running hot. I assumed I was pushing to hard and backed off a bit more going through that corner.

Pushing hard and wearing tyres out quickly is one thing, but I've never seen tyres smoke like that in real life.

Same here. Was doing a TC race at Dubai in the AMG 45, looking in my rearview mirror through some of the high speed corners, I almost thought I had entered a Formula D competition. :rolleyes:

It should not have to do anything with setup i suppose. It must be a bug.. I have exactly the same on dubai with gt3 (havent tried anything else..) very distracting

When I asked about this in Beta testing the response I got was from Amer Ahamad Pheonix Producer

Q - "Are the Tires supposed to smoke in every corner (player) also permanently smoking in replay and when stationary in the pits."

A - "No, we have them bugged already. Running out of time however."

So they are aware.
