    When you set a minimum time for a mandatory pit stop, how do you know how long to wait?

    I used it last night (Seca, 12lap sprint, 60s pit) but when I pulled in, I had no idea how long to wait.. It's been a while since I tried this, but vaguely recall there being a timer somewhere previously?

    I was hoping Crew Chief would chime in, but I was just sat there like a lemon while all my hard work trundled past. :)

    CC doesn't get told how long you need to wait. It would be a nice feature though

    Are you Mr Crew Chief himself? Amazing work if you are - It's easily the best 3rd party addition to any/all of the sims.

    I have it there. Also added min duration total and min duration left to shared memory, so CC can inform you. Not sure when it reaches public though :)

    Thanks, fella. - It'd be awesome if Crew Chief could indeed ulitilse that.

    I don't run with any UI so don't see what you see above. Maybe I'm mistaken, but I thought I'd seen the countdown on the base of the pit menu UI that's active during a stop regardless if you have UI on/off.
