    Car behaving COMPLETELY different in race vs private testing ???

    Can anybody explain why my car behaves completely different during a race vs when in private testing session ???

    I triple checked that EVERYTHING from track temp/ambient temp/ tire pressure is the same as in testing session.

    And no I'm not driving any different or faster in the race compared to testing session. This is extremely frustrating as the car is almost undrivable during the race.

    I've noticed the very same thing. Seems like they r trying to make the races harder that way or something. I had to quit 2 race, because my car was simply undriveable. 1-2 laps it was almost ok and then it was like driving a bar of soap on a wet ice.

    Alot of people in the league racing are saying this as well. We practice during the week and come race night in the league the car is totally different. On Xbo and PS4, accrooss 8 leagues with full tiers and many say the same

    Make sure that the proper set-up (even when using default) is (manually) loaded before starting a session and see if that helps. Are you all on consoles (i.e. Justin Case is your platform set correctly in your profile)?

    I've had this happened to me the few times I hadn't reloaded the setup I want during the pre-race ready menu.
    Always load setup in that 2 minute window before the race and you'll be sweet.

    What tire compound were you using?
    What was your tire pressure?
    What was the track and tire temperatures?

    Does the game simulate dirty air? I've driven the R8 countless laps around LeMans and seem to have a lot less grip when driving near someone else. The weird thing is, that it also applies when driving IN FRONT of other cars. Even my vmax seems to increase from ~327km/h to almost 340 when driving next to or right in front of somebody which doesn't nake too much sense to me

    That is expected.

    The car in front gains from slipstreaming along with the rear car.

    " On the faster speedways and superspeedways used by NASCAR, and ARCA two or more vehicles can race faster when lined up front-to-rear than a single car can race alone. The low-pressure wake behind a group's leading car reduces the aerodynamic resistance on the front of the trailing car allowing the second car to pull closer. As the second car nears the first it pushes high-pressure air forward so less fast-moving air hits the lead car's spoiler. The result is less drag for both cars, allowing faster speeds."

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drafti...ock_car_racing

    edit - this does seem confusing but it is easy to understand if you imagine the two cars welded together. They will behave like one long car with two engines and clearly achieve higher top speed.

    how many AI are you running against? There is an entire thread about this issue. Seems to be an XB1 processor power issue.
