    Why isn't this in most driving sims?

    While playing Project Cars, I often wish I had the ability to assign a button on my wheel that I could press at moments of interest during a race, such as a collision or great overtake.

    This would record a way point that saves let's say, ten seconds of action before the button press, and then at the end of the race I could quickly and easily watch these moments without going through the whole race.

    If you had a crash while racing online, I think it would be great be able to watch the incident back at the end to see who messed up, rather than just watching your car cruise round.

    What do you think? Has something like this ever been done elsewhere, and for those in the know, is it technically possible?

    nvidia shadowplay will do this. you can set the quality and duration you want it to have buffered.

    you can also just turn it on and off like Fraps for standard recording.

    It has been stated a few times that there will be no new features for PCars1, only fixes and dlc so to do this you would have to use 3rd party recording software.

    One thing that's really missing is sharing replays, why do i have to do a .avi file and upload it to YT? I could upload a replay file on dropbox and and link here when i want to show something...

    You can do this on Xbox by pressing the xbox button twice.

    You can do this on PS4 using the share button as well. For PC I'm pretty sure shadowplay is the only real option and that's not available to everyone obviously

    Do you want the game to make you breakfast in bed and fluff your pillows too? =\

    playstation lets you choose how long you want it to keep a record of, up to 15 minutes (set the length up before you need it because you can't choose how long you want when you actually save it). then you just press the share button. you can edit it down to the part you want later. i use it a lot. you can upload to your youtube account straight from the ps as well.

    With AMD Raptr you can save a "highlight" of the last 30 seconds, I used it several times to demonstrate bugs, such as "dip and flip."
