The game really doesn't call the off track violation many places, and not sensibly most cases. It doesn't call some that are blatant, like the 2nd turn at Curitiba. It calls some way too close on the other hand, like a couple of places at Monza.
So you can't count on having a clean NoGrip Hotlap just because the game didn't call you for cutting.
It's more interesting to me the pause in your replay. There actually appeared to be two in that replay. They CTD'd the one install, but just stuttered the STEAM viewing. Interesting.
The stutter is interesting, but the video above is from the replay file, so there is nothing sinister there. However when I go from the end to the start of the lap (the loop), I get a long stutter of 3 seconds, which I have never had before.
Going wide and touching the armco is not cutting in the way the rules are meant but if taken to the letter then yes it is.....
Anyway, no matter, doesn't affect me much, just thought it would be nice to have up here.
