Can I have your Tots
The Flippin' Glitch.
Some of us have been getting a glitch lately that randomly flips our cars during a race. I think I have found out what causes this glitch to happen.
I was in a race with some of the other AOD members last night. The race was 20 laps at Hockenheim GP with the classic DTM cars. Tire wear was set to off and fuel was set to real. So during lap 16, I got a pit in message for damage, pop up on my screen, even though I had not hit anything on the track and I know I did not hit my request pit stop button. I checked my engine to see if it was overheating but it was running fine, so I decided to go one more time around before I made a pit stop. As soon as I crossed the start/finish line however, my car suddenly flipped over about 2-3 times. I kept going and looked to see if I had a tire down, but none of them where down at all. I continued racing and made a pit stop to get fresh tires, and I didn't have it happen again for the rest of the race.
The conclusion I gathered from this is that the pit message I got was for damage that my car took from a flat tire. That flat tire is what I believed flipped my car over. Even though it says no tire wear, the game still thinks the tire wear is set to real.
Some of you probably already knew this, but I thought I would let you know what happened to me so you can form your own Conclusions.

Punctures are considered Mechanical Failures, which there for override the Tire Wear system, aka it is possible to get a puncture with no tire wear.
