Awesome!! Thank you for that info, I hadn't thought to see if there was a setting to prevent double-shifts from old/buggy hardware. You guys think of everything!!! <3 Also, I found exactly at what point it is happening on Hockenheim Short... must be due to my driving style combined with the high revs it generates as a result just like you pointed out! It took several laps to induce the overheating condition. Basically, I had my foot to the floor whenever permissible. Other times I'd be part-throttle just holding speed through some turns. The only place I manually downshifted is for that chicane where I'd drop it to 1st gear manually. In terms of what was driving it up, upon watching the replay I can see where other sections of the track were contributing to push the oil and water temps higher. Mainly it's from my holding too high of throttle or basically being too close to the redline for too long in turns. I took a couple of screenshots. First screenshot is as I'm still in the double-bend before getting to the start/finish straight... Spoiler: Just before overheat light, still in double-bend... And here is a screenshot as I'm entering the start/finish straight and just afterwards the engine light starts flashing on the dash display for the first time. The oil temp is still showing 219 in this screenshot but soon after it hits 220 as I'm further down the straight. Spoiler: Engine Light Starts Flashing So you are right Christian! It was due to my driving style, high revs and generally abusing the car without realizing it!! Geez, THAT MAKES ME LOVE THIS GAME EVEN MORE!! The fact that car abuse is also simulated and factored into everything is just amazing and adds to the immersion and race strategy! Yeah, no way could I finish an endurance race running the engine hard like that. I'm sure it'd quit sooner rather than later into a race lasting several hours. As it was, my race was only 20 minutes long but the last couple of laps the engine light was flashing almost constantly by that time and with a little sliver of red showing at top of engine health.
