    What is the engine image on the HUD for? Is it for engine damage? Mine keeps flashing orange while I'm racing. Then stops for a bit. Then comes on again. I'm not bouncing off the limiter. I'm not smashing the downshifts. Last race Crewchief told me my engine was sounding rough but the engine damage bar was fine but the image was flashing orange. Discord someone said maybe overheating. So what makes it go orange occasionally? If it is overheating what can I do so it doesn't? It's not like I'm going anywhere near the limit.

    Flashing should mean overheating. Which car do you drive when it happens?

    It was the BMW GTR2 at Leguna trying for the weekly ranked. Started flashing after 5 lapsish. Doesn't look good for 90 minutes. That was on engine map 3 as well. Suggestion was short shifting.

    How high is the oil temperature when the flashing starts? You should see it when you switch through the pages on the dashboard in the cockpit.

    Don't know. Didn't look. Going to do more practice laps and see what I can find out.
