I would love to see something along the lines of pit repairs.I know this could be hard to do and maybe impossible,but what a buzzzz that would be.
This was discussed by the patch test team.
Currently, the patch does not do any repairs. I've spend many hours (well actually several days) examining how repairs could be done and so far I've failed to be able to do major repairs. I can replace tires and reset the tire temps to ambient, but that's about it without doing a complete ShittR reset which is unrealistic. it wasn't until the early 1970s that tire changes were more common as the rubber became more soft. So for our current mods, there really isn't any need from a historical perspective to do tire replacement.
In reality, except perhaps for the '67 Sports Cars, mechanics in '60s couldn't do much other than change the tires during a race. So having the pitstop patch do repairs isn't all that big a deal.
Now for the future '55 F1 mod where brake fade/failure was a big deal, I can easily add brake repairs to the pitstop patch as I'm the guy who wrote the brake fade patch.
If we should ever have a '70s mod where tire wear perhaps was also a big deal, I can do tire changes too.
