    Tires over heat after pit stop bug

    about a month ago I've purchased Project Cars.
    I love the game, It's really tough and took a lot of practice to get good at, and to understand all the tuning options.
    However, after putting a lot of time in it, I've encountered a game bug that renders the game unplayable:
    In career mode, I've progressed to Formula B, where there is a mandatory pit stop in every race, and after making the pit stop it's as if the car settings change completely, the car loses grip and the rear tires go to red after a minute. I've tried to see if the tire pressure settings have been altered and they weren't, I've also tried different tires and different tire pressure setting but with no improvement.
    Can you please address my problem?

    I assume you have created a pit stop set up,for the race, if so make sure it is selected as being the active one before the race begins. You have to do this each time you race as the game resets to the default pit stop setup.

    Also sometimes if you mess with the pit stop setup as you are coming into the pits you can get some wierd issues just like you explained in your post

    Hope this helps

    The game change the pressures during the pit even with no tire change.

    Check your pressures when ENTERING the pits and use those numbers (not the same pressures of the car setup) in your pit strategy.

    If you already did that, I donīt know that it is. It may be something regarding the different compounds (Yiro/Faretti) if you are changing tires.

    Go into your pit settings when entering pits and adjust as needed could fix your problem

    That's the one^

    Also remember to match your pit tyre pressure and compounds with the car setup before race start.
