Backstage Options - Misc. Calculations
Sort cars at sectors during race
If True: the positions of the cars are updated at the end of each sector, otherwise only at the end of each lap. This is exposed as an option as there can be situations where a certain car will struggle to be picked up by a given sector line. If this happens while cars are being sorted at sectors the software will "think" this car has dropped down the order. This correct order would then only be rectified when crossing the next (working) sector or finish line.
If all equipment is working properly the preferred setting if True. Most commonly this setting needs to be set to False in IMSA as this is where the issue tends to arise occasionally.
