@YabbaTheHutt @mpc-v1 please clarify this doubt:

Season8:
Mechanical Failures: Yes (If we run with radiator = 0% closed we blow engine after few laps)
Fuel Usage: Authentic

In previous season7 we had different rules:
https://apexonlineracing.com/community/threads/season-7-aor-gt3-league-information.19125/
Mechanical Failures:
PS4/XB1: No
PC: Yes
Fuel Usage: Slow
We have tested Mechanical damage in PCars1 but it had it's problems, for example; if you drove a front engine car and got hit in the back (no damage to front end of car) you were in most cases told that you had a radiator problem and had to pit. The guy that hit you...nothing. Just drove on like nothing had happened. It worked on PC but not on PS4/XB1.
As for the fuel in S7 it was a way to get the GTE cars into concideration (Corvette, Aston V8 etc) to mix up the field a bit. Since the Vette couldn't do a 1 hour and 15 minute race on one tank we set the fuel to slow.
In S7 we also banned Stability Control. allowed TC and ABS on all cars (banned the BMW M3 as it would be OP). If you remember in S5, we had tyrewear set to X2 in an attempt to bring more strategy into the races.

So, we do change the rules between seasons. This is done to get the most out the league :)

1.45s but I ain't the best round this track t3 track limits are harsh and I can't find a setup that works for the hole track might get into the 44s if I'm lucky
I thought to be the only one facing this issue... the T3 track limit are insane. In the reality you can use all the track...

I am verifying. Should know shortly.

@Michel--NL my phone doesn’t like to view image attachments. I’ll check your images in the morning and verify if Yabba hasn't already.

Looks good for the most parts :)
The most important setting; lobby MUST BE PRIVATE (password is not needed). If not, it will be open to all kinds of people. If it is private, you can only get in with invites.
Broadcaster is only needed if we have someone to broadcast which we don't have.
Make sure that you set the correct datum and laps for the race!
It doesn't matter if you have SC on or off as we are using Force Realistic driving Aids. You won't be able to activate SC within quali or race.
Weather progression should be set to Real Time.
The rest looks good (y)

One more thing:
Always start by going through ALL the screens, pick the right info and click save. I've had some issues when I've just gone to a screen and checked the settings without saving. So, always save every screen when setting up a lobby.
