    Car Failures

    Has anyone experienced a random car failure in the game? Im not meaning a glitch or game issue, just running a race and the car gives up somehow.

    I was racing at Hockenheim in a Touring car race (E30 BMW) when i suddenly found i had no drive...like a box full of neutrals. I coasted into the stadium section of the track, slowing to an eventual standstill for a good 20 secs trying to find drive...finally it jumped into gear and i was able to continue. Id like to think this was a genuine issue and not a fault within the game.

    Id be interested to know what sort of car failures others have experienced.

    Gearbox Failures are implemented, so if you punish your Gearbox it can happen that you can't engage a Gear for a short Time.
    Or that some of the Gears aren't even usable.

    Yes i do, i like the game set as real as possible. No assists, full damage, manual gears etc.

    Im not complaining about the failure, im just trying to be sure it wasnt a game issue. It just seemed strange that the car all of a sudden just found a gear and carried on like nothing happened.
