Can I buy a back up car

As you know from all the fuss I made I lost my rear view in the last two races,
would it be possible for me to buy a second identical car for me to switch to should it happen again,
it would avoid the need for a restriction change too.

Won't change anything mate. Its a glitch that seems to happen randomly. Sometimes you will see the rear wing on a car but some just seen to black out.

I know its not the car Total,
If you leave it, it stays black race after race
but if you swap to any other car & swap back it fixes it (for the next race at least)

The lobby restrictions mean I cant swap & swap back unless
I have an identical car to swap to ...... I think thats what I mean

In bumper view with a wheel, the rear view mirror is the only visual you have of cars around you, (no left right sweep)
so when the back window goes black , you`re bolloxt.

I have a wheel but using a pad, it's alot safer for me and everyone else lol. I use the wheel offline every now and then.
I understand it's harder with wheel and view is limited.

Usually race cockpit or bonnet cam when close to people so give enough room

I don't think Senna intended to cause any offence, just trying to add some humour to the thread.

Not sure the option you refer to is available on the wheel? Without re-mapping the buttons away from the usual A for clutch that is. There are preset configs for the buttons afaik. There is no analogue stick on the MS wheel.

Could someone who uses the wheel confirm this?

I used to use the MS wheel and it was always Y if the clutch was mapped as A.

Unless i was using Jedi mind tricks...

Like I said Senna, I imagine we have very little in common & your opinions & wisdom are of very little use to me.
so if you don`t mind, just ignore any of my further posts as they wont require your input.

Yup. Fanatec wheel you use rear view with 'Y'.

Personally I find it easier knowing where people are by using the distance meter. If someone is 20ft away make sure you cover your lines. If someone then tags you then it is likely their fault. As for someone screaming "ON YOUR LEFT" when they are that distance away will only ever mean im going to cover that line and thanks for the headsup!

If its on -5ft then they are alongside you so keep it on a clean line and if you spot their bumper on your left or right of a corner brake early and undercut them as its likely they will try to outbrake you and end up going wide.

Knowing where (and how) the Look Behind button is i thought would be very useful.
From now on i shall keep my infinite wisdom and knowledge of the four Microsoft face buttons to myself. It's obviously too much for the world at large to handle as of yet.
