    For the gear fix, does that also correct the graph where gears disappear on cars that have more than 8 gears?

    Plenty of IRL cars - 2021 Mustang has a 10-speed auto for starters...

    I guess I was thinking of semi-automatic paddle shift race cars.

    As far as road cars, they might as well just use a CVT...

    Koenigsegg Jesko has 9 gears. The bug was found when trying to put that gearbox in rFactor and the graph going blank for our Hypercar mod. The way we fixed it is by switching to an 8-speed.

    The original is a multi-clutch transmission that has 3 shafts with no power cutouts (much like a DCT). This is a semi-automatic paddle shift road car (that was re-imagined as a race car in our case), which even as a street car it would be very very far off from a CVT transmission.

    Do you have a car with more than eight gears? Can you send it to me so I can share it with the programmers?
