I'd like to know if we can pace 2 laps for adjustments with cautions turned on before I vote. Couple more things, I don't think we can turn cautions on/off between qualifying and the race. I assume we wouldn't run cautions during qualifying, that would be a mess. I can see that being a pain to have to make a whole new lobby, and then we would have to line ourselves up and have a manual start to the race.
I think I'm torn between 25% races with the old rules, and 50% races with the new rules. I know we are going to get into caution fests, and if we running 25% races, our laps are going to disappear instantly. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm gonna be bummed out if I spent any time practicing for a race that lasts 10 minutes.
I think our Texas race had like 18 cautions, 25% race at Texas is like 80 Lapsish, and each auto caution eats up at least 3 laps, that's over 54 Laps that just are gone. Put 2 stage cautions in there, and you have only driven 20 Laps the whole race. At least if we are doing manual cautions we are driving pace laps. And it's somewhat entertaining to pit during cautions. Actually the more I think about it, the more I would like to leave it the same as we have it. Auto cautions are cool, but they take the controls from you, and I don't think I like that.
EDIT: Last night we ran some race with the auto cautions, and it didn't call cautions sometimes on wrecks I think we would have called, so it has the tendency to screw us over pretty badly. It also was not very accurate in some instances when drivers had passed cars, had the caution come out, and place you back a couple spots. Not to say we were accurate all the time either, but I can see that being a problem. I doubt the game would call cautions for people getting hit down pit road either.
We also would not be able to send the person who caused the caution to the back like we do, or laggy cars. Not having black flags is a bummer, but I can live without it.
