Had my engine go pop lastnight after 2 laps with radiator at 75% had no aero damage and handnt bounced the car off the limiter and got no warning. Just something to keep in mind buts it's probably one of the many bugs that happens from time to time. I know @Barker95 had a strange engine blowup at imola

I've also had these issue's in the past doesn't seem to make a lot of sense on why these things happen

So this is what happened to me yesterday while practicing with my radiator open at 75% no damage and not even pushing flat out just 3 laps into a stint, the engine decided to die. Now i know ppl wanted to have mechanical failures on to stop the downshifts of doom but at this point i just think that its too buggy and in a sense why fix what wasn't broken in Season 7. Now if the game is simulating random failures that's great if your playing career mode but in league races it just doesn't work well.

So i fear for the engine at this track i started short shifting everywhere getting absolutely slaughter by the Ferrari's in sector 1 i'm talking almost a whole second its beyond a joke lol. I think the evaluation races was the time to test Mechanical failures. As i have stated before in the Audi to get time out of it you need to be up against the limiter in Ferrari you shift very early so it has even more of a advantage it takes less damage and you can push hard without damaging the engine as much its like Mercedes F1 vs Mclaren Honda lol.

Yeah it's happened to me in practice. This has been a concern of mine since we started planning the League. Like you say it's buggy and inconsistent to use with its current state. I need to speak to people today about this. But thinking the only sensible option would be to have it removed.
I will know more about this later today hopefully.;)

plus I feel some of these bugs are track orientated. That's a few of us who have had blown engines at the same track 2/3 laps in. The game still has major issues. I can't even use a setup on tt anymore as it only recognises the SMS stable and loose ones. Plus when I try and back out it don't let me and I have to close the application and restart game. Also not been able to save new setups I just get s massage "saying use of profanity"

For us Ferrari guys, we already got a advantage with the car we choose, if we take The Audi for example, you have to run close to 100% open radiator while Ferrari can use 50% without any worry of damage. Its a bit unfair imo.

Have you been online when trying to save? I've heard that you must be online to be able to save. I also had that problem with naming the setup.

Since there have come more detailed info on the engine blow-up problem (some cars use higher revs and are more likely to have the problem), we need to turn the mechanical damage off until next patch (and some serious testing of course).
This will take affect from now on all PS4 GT3 leagues until me or any other moderator say anything different.
