Hi there, we (trd3.net) are running a champ with Endurance Series SP1 (Aston Martin DBR9) mod.
Yesterday we had the first race of the season and we had serious reliability problems with the engines.
Server is configured with "Mechanical failure rate" as 'timescaled', and car damage is set to 35%.
I previously did some race simulations and had no problem with engine (50 minutes, turbo=2, grill=5) as long as i didn't gear down with no care at all.
But yesterday during the race, Safety Car appeared (server misconfiguration, sensitivity was too high).
We stayed behind the SC during 2 laps, at low speed, low revs, low turbo, and oil temps really low (70º celsius).
On race restart in a lapse of 3 laps, several cars broke engine. And not gearing down, but gearing up in full acceleration. Oil temp was no higher than 95º Celsius.
Finally, only 3 (of 20) cars were able to finnish the race. Rest of engines blown up.
Is there any server configuration we can do about this problem. Was it due to running behind Safety Car?
Thanks in advance.
PS: congratulations for this great mod. We use it frequently for endurance events.
