1.05 - Car constantly scraping in career mode [R2]

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I noticed this issue last year and it really ruined my career modes and particularly replays. When you start to get get over half of the downforce upgrades on the car in career mode it starts to push the car too low to road. This means that on any straight your car is constantly scraping and sparking. With full upgrades in 2018 it meant that with even the highest ride height that you were still always scraping.

This wasn't an issue before 1.05 as they had clearly removed some downforce from the car but now its been increased, the scraping is back. Videos below to show.

This is with a S1 Toro Rosso with about 7-9 of the early upgrades. 

 

This is very annoying and hopefully not too difficult to fix. Would appreciate any response.

Hi @SASColfer would you be able to give me some extra details so I can pass these back to the team please;

  • your car setup when this occurs 
  • is it only on certain tracks?
  • Image of your R&D progression when it started to occur if possible

Thanks!

Hi

i ve experienced this bug last year, too. It was very anoying and stopped me from continuing playing the career mode. I was very unhappy with codemasters reaction to this...the bug was confirmed in the technical forum, but wasn`t patched in the following months.

 

So here we go again..

but SASColfer right now im not sure if its the same bug. I drove in spaa today with the second fastes standard setup, only the height in front and rear lowered by one, and the fuel tank was full....60kg for a 50% race. There it was the constant scrapping on long straights, but after i went back to the standard height it was ok...much, but no more permanent scraping and sparking!!

So, think we need to test a little bit more. But thx for the reaction RedDevilKT.

 

Im on PC, i have round about 1/3 of the downforce upgrades with the mc Laren team.

Greetings

Finally, somebody says this besides me (in which I didn't have any answer), this is not the same thing I reported but related as it is floor and track mapping

 

 

This does not happen only to the player but also to IA.... Especially in Eau Rouge

 

Is this is going to be Attended?

Hi @RedDevilKT

For the videos above I had increased the ride height to 7-7 to try and mitigate it but I usually just play with standard 6-6 and the scraping is very bad. (Don't have time to play around with setups much). 

It's appearing on all tracks once you get up to speed (about gear 4/5) but obviously is more noticeable on tracks with more undulation.

Unfortunately I've just moved teams in the game so don't have the screenshot from S1. It appears to be affected Toro Rosso and Alfa Romeo the most. That was my team and the team Weber was in (not sure if that has some weird impact). I'll check if it happens in the McLaren when I next play and then screenshot the R&D.

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.

Hi @SASColfer thank you for giving us so much detail about this. With the upgrades in career applied, this will push the car closer to the ground (upgrades are ultimately to increase performance after all). Combined with the high speed sections of the track providing a higher aerodynamic load (pushing the car further into the ground), fuel loads etc, and the likes of that straight in Japan (for example) being bumpy, it means that there is an increased chance of sparks and with how low the car will be, potential scraping.

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.
