F4 Glitch Sebring

Post  GLR mar B ond on Mon Oct 13, 2014 6:38 am

Something really strange happened friday on Sebring R1 class. 2nd place car pitted from about 20 meters behind me. I pitted following lap and came out almost 400 meters behind him!!. Investigated the glitch. It's a big one, game-changer. Don't think anybody knows it. When lobby settings is set to random starting positions, and you're preparing for warm up lap(during which the grid order is set), the computer put's somebody in 1st place grid (it happens also when somebody's is in 1st place grid thru lobby points). That car gets a 3.9 second shorter pit stop then everybody else. Car stops quicker and drives of straighter then the rest. Tested it multiple times in lobby and checked multiple replay cars. Bizar and pretty frustrating
It had nothing to do with damage, all stationary time was the same.
Don't know yet if it's also the case with lower classes, pit entry speed is lower then, of course.

This makes all Sebring results over the past years on Sebring a bit fishy to say the least. Specially the LeMans enduro's held there, with multiple pit stops.
Hope this is fixed in F5. Maybe it's time to check.

Yep. Now also tested out with other classes. R3 = 3.7 second's, A = 2.7, C = less then a second. This degrading is of course because of lower entry speed.
There is a fix for it. Letting a guest start in 1st grid slot and having him drive straight on in 1st corner and leave the lobby. That way the 1st-pit-box stay's un-used.
Like i said, don't know if it's also in Forza5, can't test that.
