Just to make this clear pit stops are not mandatory due to multiple issues with pitting in game from now on

Not using mandatory pitstops is of course a choise. But since I heared a lot comments, about people pitting, for the second week in a row I feel some explaining needs to be done.

Not everyone here is on a wheel, where you get very good tire wear compared to the controller. And where you'll be 100% safe from having to make a pitstop.

Regarding the controller there are two ways to descibe most drivers. The ones that tapsteer (apply full lock in a quick succession). And the ones that "smoothsteer." So apply gradual imputs like you would do on a wheel. This still isn't as smooth as you'd be able to do on a wheel, on the tire wear spectrum it's somewhere between the wheel users and tapsteerers.

For two weeks in a row now tire wear has been a massive factor in the battles for the race win. Again: Don't want to take anyway away from the winners. The way it is at the moment both pace and tire management decide the race. Having or only doing one simply isn't enough.

The problem is that not everyone has the same chance of making it on one stop. The guys that don't use smooth steering methods will get around 100% which makes your car undriveable and gives you a one minute penalty in the process. Besides that, having to pay so much attention to tire wear takes the fun away from the racing. Which should be about giving it your all for the entire race. So with the pitstops problem being fixed this Tuesday all I want to ask you guys to consider bringing the pitstops back. So everyone has the same chances. Regardless of how they drive their car. And even regardless of the fact whether they use TCS or not.

I moved this to the discussion thread as I feel this may overload the race thread and possibly miss when people post if they cannot make the race.

but my view on this is I ran two 25 lap races at Nürburgring once using controller and once using the racing wheel, when I used the controller I finished the 25 laps with 88% front tire wear, and when I used the wheel I finished between 76% and 78% wear on the front tires, so yes there is a difference between the two, feal free to voice your thoughts on the matter here

Perhaps because I’m a total noob at Forza, but when I raced at Laguna Seca my tire wear was unbearable for the last two laps. I had 95% wear on both front tires. I believe I was about 10-15 seconds slower per lap for the last lap and a half.

I’d seriously consider either reintroducing a mandatory pit or shorten the race by a few laps.

Also, I'd like to apologize for the way I wrote things down initially, wasn't my intent to insult anyone. Was a bit frustrated after the last two weeks. Adjusted the post accordingly:)

I don't think anyone took offence to it man it's all good. I can see your point and I think after the update today I'm going to do some testing on the pit stops. My only argument for not having them is the game messing up someone's race and we can't do anything about it. I would feel terrible for it knowing that we put a rule in place that forced them into it. If that's solved I'm good for pit stops.

@Rockstar Matt brought up a good point that I overlooked about the DST time change, What would be easier for all for the UK gents to start at 4:30pm GMT while the US gents stay at 12:30pm EST, or for the UK gents to stay at 5:30pm GMT start time and the US guys start at 1:30pm EST. This is due to the USA doing our DST adjustment a week before those in the UK, so this adjusted race start time should only be for this weeks race only, please post your opinions ASAP as we need to make a decision soon.
