There are categories where you can repair IRL. And the pilot tries to drive the car to the boxes in a safety way. In rF2 the modder chooses if an element is repairable or not and the required time to repair it. It's more or less the same as in reallity. If the modder doesn't choose the correct parts to repair, or the correct time to repair those parts, then will be arcadish. Otherwise, i think that can be more or less real.
