S17 AOR PC F8 Champion

For me personally I believe it is strictly engine related. I do a decent amount of TT per week and never got the lost connection message, however there would still be the random frame spikes. I have been lucky up until this week to not receive any while in the race, unfortunately that changed and under no circumstances should it be happening when I have an RTX 2070SC and a ryzen 7 1700X. Codies still can't get it right.I'm pretty convinced the game freezes are due to networking issues, I'll explain why.
Basically, I have had virtually no issues with screen freezes since switching to DX12. However, I was playing TT and got the 'Connection to the server was lost. Laptimes will not be uploaded....' (not the exact wording, but the gist. I don't normally record TT).
At the instant the message appeared (twice in a relatively short session), the game glitched (dropped frames) noticeably. This should not occur, especially with Freesync.
Whatever the game engine does, it does worse under DX11. I know this is all anecdotal, but it was painfully noticeable.
I thought this weekends lobby was generally quite stable, with only one minor occurrence of lag teleportation. @Billamy glitched hard on the formation lap briefly at the start as I recall.
