I have a question...
After 12 years gpl I'm still unsure about this point: Is there a difference in damage level between PRO mode and GP races?
I'm an online racer. In the days before the race I practise offline in single player mode. When I touch i. e. at Mexico the white tires at the edge of the road a bit often the suspension is damaged hard.
A few days later in the race it seems the same touches have no effect.
In my offline practice anyway I choice damage modell realistic. In online (or offline) PRO races gpl itself displays damage modell realistic too. If I start a GP race gpl says realistic too.

So my question is: Is the realistic damage level in PRO/GP mode different? And is the single player damage level the same like in GP mode?

good question, i wonder if a test has been done, or anyone knows for sure.
hitting the tires at Mex could be varied. angle/speed/ride height/fuel load etc.

maybe a test with running at a wall.. head on, same speed in both instances?
otherwise, i'm guessing.

I'm one that thinks offline the damage is much more severe than online. I've run GPs both on and offline. I was a slower driver before I started racing online. Offline almost any touch would damage my alignment. Online with Pro or GP, I can get away with some minor bumps with no ill effect.
