  1. Hi @RedDevilKT Appreciate your response. Agree with your diagnosis but unfortunately I still think this needs to be considered a bug or design fault. The problem is that to stop it scraping and bottoming out you have to run a ridiculously high ride height, which further impacts car performance. I have seen a number of threats raised by different people about this. Unfortunately it also makes the races look a bit silly with all the cars just scraping around.
  2. Hi @RedDevilKT Do you have any update on the issue? This is S1 McLaren in Japan. Ride height 10. You can see when the AI has control of the car that it does not happen and as soon as I take over, it drops into the track.

    Front Wing Breaking Up. Is This a Glitch?

    The issue is that downforce upgrades in career mode make the car run lower. Unfortunately things that teams in real life would change such as suspension and ride height isn't being adjusted with the upgrades, they're just adding downforce points. This makes the car run lower and you yet the issues like this with the car scraping the ground meaning constant sparking and damage to wings.
  4. Hi, I raised this in tech assistance a while back but didn't get a response. Has anyone had the ride height/sparks issue in career mode? I've got about 1/3 of the chassis/downforce upgrade on my McLaren in S1 and now the car just sparks constantly on the straights. It also makes the scraping noise constantly and makes the camera bump up and down. It also makes watching replays unbearable as it doesn't seem to affect the AI. In this video I have the ride height at 5/6. This should be fine right? I feel that if I raise it any higher I'm just going to lose performance because the bottoming out doesn't actually do anything in this game.

    My Career Mode Summery: Season 3

    The transfer system has been really badly implemented. The R&D is really killing the immersion as well. The game needs the ability for teams to develop and win but limiting factors need to be added to some teams. A chance factor needs to be added to the end season development based on the previous seasons final pace chart so that the top teams have a higher chance of staying there. Obviously it needs to be possible for teams and players to rise to the top but it needs to be a challenge and should be reasonably realistic. I hate that I can take my team to the top only for the other top teams at that time to be Toro Rosso and Racing point, with Ferrari and Merc at the bottom.

    Difficulty in keeping up with AI in R&D

    I've had exactly this but moving to McLaren. We were third best. The best me and my teammate could do was 17th and 18th.

    I'm hopeful but I have little faith this will be fixed. I'm not sure they've even acknowledged the issue.

    Silly mid-season driver transfers..

    Bottas and Gasly swap seats by France in S1. Ridiculous.

    Heading into season 4, no sign of SC

    It's not supposed to but apparently has some effect. One thing that I remember is that for my first career I started it with the option for safety car off and changed it later on whereas my new one I made sure it was on. Dont know if that was the issue

    I restarted my career in 1.05 and I'm now getting vsc's. I didnt have anything in my launch career of 2 seasons.
  12. That all makes sense but it would mean that the team ranking graph is way off and that's the order is incorrect. Racing point shouldn't be anywhere near as good as they are. They still seem to have some crazy straight line speed advantage. Coupled with Mclarens drag issue, that doesn't exist in real life anymore, it means the team order isn't correct.
  13. Has anybody else noticed nonsense car performance in career mode. I'm racing for McLaren who are 4th in the performance ranking. I have the difficulty set to be about level with my team mate Sainz. We are both regularly struggling to get into Q2 across the first 5 tracks of the season. This should not be the case across a variety of tracks and the performance we apparently have. Racing Point are regularly qualifying 5th-8th and finishing in 3rd-5th despite having a lower performance rating. It doesn't make any sense! The only thing I can guess at is that the 'Power' rating is having a much much larger effect than the chassis or downforce and the ranking system is just wrong.
  14. I had the exact same issue after changing teams. My S1 with Toro Rosso I was beating my team mate by 0.4/0.5 in quali. I moved teams to the 4th placed McLaren and I qualified in Australia in P18 with my team mate in P5. I really believe something in coding is broken for R&D/team changes
