    Up until 1987, there was no limit on boost pressure. In 1987, it was limited to 4.0 bars and in 1988, 2.5 bars. Then turbos were banned in 1989. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Formula_One_regulations

    Great mod and a handful to drive. :)
    Any chance of a historic edition someday? It's strange to see Ivan Capelli winning a race and watching Ayrton Senna at P20.

    We are using this mod for an upcoming league. Does anyone know how to enable the "car select" option in the qualifying and warmup sessions?

    Currently, we can't use the qualifying engines because you can only choose upgrades in the practice session on our server. The option is locked in qualifying/warmup/race. This means if you choose the qualifying engine in practice so you can use it in qualifying, there is no way to take your place on the grid and switch your engine back to the race engine for the race.

    So you would have a very short 2-4 lap race until your engine explodes...

    I thought there would be some server setting that would allow "car select" and access to the tuning menu in all sessions.

    I think it is not possible, I think you can't use qualy and race engine in one session

    Can't you mimic the different engines by implementing different boost maps? Wasn't there a mod, maybe a formula based too, that had this feature? Must be one from a long time ago as I really don't remember which mod it was...

    As far as I understand it, there was nothing stopping teams from running full boost in the race except that the engine would "grenade" and other components would fail.

    The other point that may be unfamiliar was the use of fuel. Fuel compostition and overfueling, were used up until the end of 1987 as an intake charge coolant. Measureable and significant extra power was achievable by tailoring fuel composition and mixture to allow latent heat of vaporization and fuel quantity(more)to lower intake charge temperature to use higher boost pressures to create power. In 1988 the fuel quantity allowed for the race was reduced to limit the benefit of this performance enhancement strategy.

    Different game version or server version?

    Server should be up to date latest rFactor version. Are we missing a mod version update?

    If you haven't already, drive these cars around the newly released Nordschleife with no assists and H-pattern. It's an absolute blast!
