    Brakes and DRS

    Not sure if this has been mentioned before.....Brake discs not always glowing under heavy braking. Happens on different cars and multiple locations.
    Watched replay first lap car brake discs glowing under braking and on the next lap....nothing.
    Also how is DRS enabled for the "DTM races" using identical cars ie Merc DTM C Class. It seems to be working when a replay is viewed but when in chase cam view the rear wing does not seem to be working??The wing looks like it is a fixed wing.

    About the brake disc glow: It only happens above a certain temperature (temp is different for each car). So I'm guessing your brakes were hot 1st lap, but since your brake vents were opened too much, they cooled down too much and didnt glow (were not up to temperature) for the second lap. So try closing your brake vents. You should monitor the brake temps on the motec or the telemetry HUD.

    I'm still wondering if other online players can see your disc glow.. Can you see the AI's disc glow in single player? (what about AI online then?)

    About the DRS: It works fine with me, the merc DTM's wing pivots down when DRS activated. You have to keep DRS pressed though (same as the P1), as opposed to the formula A cars (Have only tried it once pre-patch, so maybe now there might be a bug, dunno)

    I suppose you are playing on the PS4 , since you post it the PS4 section. You should change your platform in your profile, so people can help you better and faster.

    I also think the brake glow is bugged. As I have tried to see it on the f1 by getting the brakes up to 2000c but still no glow.

    I think the brake disc on a F1 are covered so that might explain why you can't see the glow.

    The DRS for the DTM works. I was driving it for the first time yesterday, and drove in chase cam just to check it out. I was having so much fun just watching it pivoting up and down that I shot straight through a corner and completely totaled the car.

    I don't know exactly what year the cars are supposed to be copying, but you can see the brakes glow on some of the V8 era cars.

    The M6 GT3, R8 LMS, and AMG GT3 would be a perfect German rivals DLC. I'd pay 15 dollars just for those 3 cars.
