Apparently this slipped right by me and I raced last night after the update and didn't notice it. You can now race against a car's division. That will really help in some of the classes. I've been having to dumb down the AI to compensate for the Ultimas and Radicals etc.
This should help you a lot with GT racing, 1970 F1 etc... but its still not there, but a good start
I haven't got a chance to play since the update though:
Did they use division like "car body" or like Division: Modern GT max PI R865 I assume its like the car body style.
If that is the case: then there may be some very lopsided (dumbed down AI - if they are not allowed to upgrade. But It will be real nice to have Races that have Global Touring cars only, or Modern GT Race cars etc... That are what ever lap count I specify - I'm going to have a lot more cars with higher affinity now that they have this fixed up.
--- the drivatar issue never really affected me; mildly annoying at times - but the way the FM forums are going not sure it's fixed
---Fuel level as a percentage on the damage screen is a nice touch
rest didn't affect me much as I don;t race cockpit.
I am glad they are working on things, but i dont think any of those issues other than one ai racing away were really even that bad. They just threw a little stuff at people to satisfy. I think the graining in the replays is worse than most of the issues they "fixed" yet their is no mention of the kicking for sitting implemented in all lobby types and not having a simple on off switch for this.....
I message Mech and Triton ( the crashed lobby DVR at Rio - they both responded right away and said they (T10) was looking into it.
I guess what I don;t understand is the silence - why not post hey definitely see this is an issue and something just happened. We have team working on it and then go silent... until they have news to report - or maybe they have - but I don't recall seeing anything.
I totally agree this is the big issue. I stopped racing in the leagues partly to focus on the completing career 100% but what was the purpose in MP currently - its extremely fustrating
Ok now I see where you select the divisions. Now if I can only figure out what division each car is in. I only had time to run two races in Modern GT. I think this is really going to make the game more fun to me.
I love this divisional racing stuff. Although I think it's causing me to mainly stick to race cars. I haven't done much road car stuff since it came out.
I know it won't happen but I would like to be able to keep track of division lap times separate from your leader board car in that class. I would like to know which is my fastest V8 Supercar, Global Touring Car, etc.

I used to use pencil and paper for nearly everything (I've got Volumes LOL). Since an iOS update a while ago that allows you to attach pictures and videos directly to notes I do everything on my phone now. I'm sure Android would have something similar (if not better)

Nice Tyler [UP]
The division selection of free play gives you the opportunity to have longer career races- practice tunes cars for career by selecting division and the playlist of the career event. (Or race your favorite in other playlists as well)
Break away drivatars are not fixed. Just toned down in places.
In can an I had one do a top100 time overall, faster then my lotus 1970 F1 on Yas marina full (which was good for #78)
