Just kidding, I have no clue why you get no engine damage.

Anyone got any ideas? I feel a total fraud driving at the moment, but I don't want to face the hassle and risk of a full re-install.

- Try creating and using a new player. Maybe your player.ini is corrupt in some way, even if it doesn't look it.
- Untick/disable all patches in GEM+2. Possibly some combination is corrupting the exe. Maybe even temporarily remove them from the options folders to be sure. As you already know, delete the exe to ensure GEM rebuilds it.
- Try running the exe directly (not within GEM+2)
- If none of the above helps, then I would go back to the most basic, unpatched GPL.exe possible. Take it from the CD and add the official patches if you need to.
- The above would rule out as far as possible the exe, patches and your player. That might point to something environmental. Can't think what might cause it butit might be worth turning off anti-virus/malware in case that is messing with the patching process.

I created a new player, with the default settings, but it made no difference. I also deleted all the .exes, and tried running them direct instead of through GEM, but again no effect.
But I have found that engine damage seems to be there on some Carsets, but not others.
Carsets with damage: 1967 (original), 1966 Can-Am, 1971 Can-Am, 1969-extra, 1967 Sportscars, 1966 F1, 1967 Tasman, 1968 Tasman
Carsets without damage: 1955 F1, 1965 F1, 1967 F2, 1965 Tasman, 1966 Tasman, 1967 Historic V2 - all carsets
I did see one engine blow-up in the 1967 F2 Mod, but couldn't get it to repeat. Same with 1965 F1 using the Honda. So the effect is inconsistent, which is very frustrating.
I've put quite a lot of effort into making a lot of small adjustments to my carsets (e.g. 1965 F1) and I'm reluctant just to try deleting them outright and re-installing. Does anyone have any further suggestions I could try? Really appreciate it.

Another thing if you manage to blow a single engine in that mod clearly has engine damage, it may be less likely but it's there. F2s and 65s tend to be hardy little engines that rarely blow, expect when one is leading of course

Since you cannot alter the physics (I think they are stored, encrypted in the .eph (encrypted physics?) file in the \mods\GEM+ folder), I don't see how you can have screwed these up. As Michkov and Greg say there is no connection to the \cars folder graphics.
I think when you re-create the relevant gpl exe, GEM+2 will patch your base gpl.exe with the relevant mod physics, any other xml mod patches from the relevant \mods\GEM+\xxxx subfolder, and any optional xml patches you have selected in GEM+2 from the \mods\GEM+\xxxx\options subfolder.
From the testing that you have done, I would suspect that it is a combination of patches. Your base gpl exe seems ok since some mods are ok. So for the ones that are not working, perhaps these have a combination of optional patches that are corrupting the physics.
I would now try....
1) For one of the non working mods disable all the optional patches in GEM+2 and rebuild the exe
2) Check that all the mods xml patches are present and correct in the \mods\GEM+\xxxx folder.
For your information my 1955 F1 works correctly. The optional patches I currently have selected are....
- 55 Replay Directory
- 77dv3 No Letterbox
- 77e V1.0 Head Movement
- Enable pribluda

I'm confused that you keep referring to carsets as the cause of your issue. Carsets are the graphics side of a mod...they have nothing whatsoever to do with the physics side. The mod physics is what sets each car's reliability.
You say you change out the carsets...how are you doing that?
