    Can you switch off the safety car on the megane server please? Almost every race is chaos at the start, the safety car comes out after the first lap and then drives at 80kph for 3 laps of a 10lap race.
    On the plus side it seems that there are a few newcomers to racing online on rF2, I have seen a few people saying it's their first race. We're all waiting for rF2 to become more populated and official servers seem to be helping.

    Additionally, the server seems to be lagging extremely once the safety car is out with 20+ (?) drivers :(

    Before SC is out everything is running smoothly, once it's there cars are shift-moving all over the place causing many crashes to happen. Ping is still the same as before while this happens.

    Edit: Replay attached, seems to be happening mostly just after other cars crashing?

    That server ended up crashing (see the sticky thread). I've restarted it, and removed the SC.

    There's some testing/troubleshooting going related to server issues (see the "lag" thread)... I'll bet Tim's not enabling LiveRacers on all the servers at the same time right now.

    Thanks for removing the safety car. This may help the grid size...I feel many were not racing on the official servers because not many want to drive around for several minutes behind the safety car just to have it come out again on the restart.:)
