    The following telemetry data is not available on GT3 Power pack after the last update on 26 of July 2018:

    Tire Grip fraction (was available before update)

    Engine water temperature (was available before update)

    Engine oil temperature (was available before update)

    Engine torque (not sure if it was available before update)

    Tire Load (not sure if it was available before update)

    In addition Fanatec CS1 brake pedal vibration stopped working on all cars, not only GT3 pack. Put it here as this could probably have same source of error as an issue above. I'll add separate report as well.

    Hi,

    I have some old log-files from the previous GT3-version, including all channels you mentioned.
    In addition, the following channels are also missing:
    - Drag
    - Front Downforce
    - Rear Downforce

    btw: using DAMPlugin and MoTeC
    (sorry for the double report)

    @Lenniepen,
    Thanks for your input! I hope this information would be useful for S397 and help to fix the issue asap.

    Apparently these channels were removed intentionally:

    Those channels were removed
    ...
    We can't give that data out

    Very disappointing news. I could understand why they are not allowed to share doenforce details, but what's the problem with grip and engine temp? The strange thing is: a) they show engine temperature on car display anyway though with very small font, b) how one could setup radiator tape without knowing engin temperature...

    I don't think they have per-channel control over that, based on what we've seen in the past. So to avoid showing some channels they'll tend to disable whole groups.

    *Sorry, that sounds a bit silly doesn't it? They're the devs, so potentially they can do whatever they want... but we've seen some groups of telemetry that can be disabled via the HDV file, and presumably they're utilising those rather than implementing a whole new set of parameters to do it. So they're still bound to the same restrictions we had before. And that's purely regarding telemetry output (the plugin interface) so in-game information won't be affected.

    **Final edit: the HUD shows brake and engine temperature as normal, presumably? So that would be your reference for cooling.
