    I have a showstopper problem.

    I can't drive in reverse. The dash says R when shifting but i don't go anywhere.

    Who needs reverse you could say , but once in a while i run out of asphalt, facing a wall ;-)

    Is there a 'Reset car' key hidden somewhere? That would help me out.
    Simbins sims have it. I don't rmember whether RF1 had.

    Reverse works fine here... I wonder why it`s not for you?

    Have you tried it when not off track? Does it NEVER work, or just sometimes? You're sure it says R, not N, right? Also you are hitting the accelerator when in R, not the brake? Sorry for so many questions. :)

    Also check you don't have the clutch assigned to something interfering.

    I had the same problem. I changed this value to 0 in the controller.ini file.
    Stop Sequential if Neutral Configured="0" // whether configuring neutral prevents sequential shifts into neutral from 1=1st, 2=reverse, 3=both, or 0=neither

    I guess the default setting had neutral assigned to a button on my wheels profile.

    I tried it. At first it seemed not to work. Then i pressed the brake pedal, and voila: i had reverse. Maybe that's just what i should have done all the time, but thanks for the tip.

    I can't remember where I configured mine, but I press both paddles to get to neutral then down one more to get to reverse. I can't go down to reverse straight away.
