I’ve just got to it from the main menu on an iPhone no problems. One thing I noticed was that the battery cars are now featured before the ice models, shows what their priority is

Seems to be showing now. It definitely wasn’t there earlier as it had 8 models not 9.

@dopper99.  Andy, if you look at 4:07-4:14 secs in this video that @Dannybear83 posted yesterday in the video thread you can see there no engine cover.

 

 

Apparently a recall on some engine covers as they can work loose and potentially catch fire if they touch the turbo. Any without a cover should get a revised one in the future

Yeah I know, recall 10H5, mine was recalled a year ago. I was just responding to @dopper99’s remark that the Joe Achilles video showed an R20 with an engine cover and him wondering why that car has one when the replacement has not been issued.  It’s actually just an edited in shot as @AHG’s points out.  I was just saying that the R20 in the CTR v R20 vid also does not have the cover.  Read back up a bit and it’ll make sense.  🙂

Ah ok, I jumped in without reading the earlier part of the thread 😊 Did you get a replacement at the time or have to wait?

I’m trying to catch up on all the videos and info in anticipation I may get a build slot

No worries.  😊

 

No no replacement as yet.  To my knowledge they haven’t sorted a revised version for the performance models yet (it’s been discussed a few time on here). My car is due in for its 2nd service next month so I’ll ask but am not holding my breath on a replacement.
