Engine died on stage, why?

I just drove this rally:

I used the Mini WRC.

Om the last stage (Sorica) the engine died just before finish. I did not hit anything and I do not understand why.
I checked the head gasket using F1-key and it was all ok.

Is there anyone who can help me understand why this is happening?

Perhaps there is some damage monitor that you could download and run while you watch the replay?
I have not seen something like that but it would be good to have.

If i remember well, Workersbee's pacenote plugin has a damage indicator function. I think it is working in replays too.

Thanks for the tip!

I downloaded the plugin and watched the replay. The plugin worked fine including the damage monitor but it was only showing damage for suspension parts and wheels. Not for the mechanical parts such as the gearbox/cooler/engine.

So still no clue why the engine died for me.

Did you use left foot brake a lot? Or do you have a contact failure in the brake padal?

Yes I do use left foot breaking quite a lot. Is that a problem?

If it is I can understand that it is a problem on this long stage...

Yes, it can cause this problem. If you use a lot the engine can broke down. Try use less time the left foot brake. ;)

Hi Erik,
I had the same problem, manly in long stages. he left foot break technique makes RBR blows up the engine. I think that is a Richard Burns Problem. I've tested another plugins and the same problem. THe only way is to control left foot breaking!!
Best rallyes!
