Something I tried as a last resort after chatting to @Marcel Offermans last night was reformatting my PC as it had loads of rubbish on it. After some some laps tonight no stutters or freezes so far and might of just cured them.

Worth a shot if you haven't tried it already.

I might end up doing the same, had a race in another league yesterday where driving was like watching a slide show, cost me about a second a lap... Beyond frustrating, I was this close to parking it in the garage :p

Can you try and find max_fps (or similar, don't know it by heart) in the player.JSON file and set that to 60 or 59?
This way you can cap the framerate and should allow for a smoother experience, since there are no more big fluctuations in FPS :)

Regarding screen freezes, can some people do a little test for me? I've noticed on DevMode (while creating mods) that I get stutters when my Wheel (Fanatec Clubsport V2.5 with V3 pedals) is plugged in, but when its not plugged in or turned on I don't get any stutters. I let the AI drive the car for both instances and am wondering if it's a FFB issue instead of graphics or physics. Thoughts?

Just a message for those who were suffering from stutters during the race on saturday, if you are running with "Aggressive threading" in the video settings, try turning it off. Just did a test between the two settings (40 AI with myself driving as well (FFB and wheel input affects the stutters as well)) and the difference is night and day (at least offline testing). Still not 100% gone for me, but it's much better/tolerable.

As I posted on the Silverstone thread.

Anyone having the screen freeze issues I tried this:

Reformatted my PC then installed rFactor 2 again and made a clean player file but haven't run windows updates as I have a feeling my issues was something to do with windows updates possibly installing something that may be running in the background.

Just going to throw my two cents here.

Only way i have been able to produce freezes ever was with my old i5-2500k cpu when raising the fps limit over 125. Now with Ryzen 5 2600 runs fine with 145 fps limit. I'm using 2560x1080 res in 144hz.

Other specs:
Win 10 home on SSD
GTX 1060 6gb
16gt ddr4 3200mhz cl15
GIGABYTE GA-AB350 Gaming 3 motherboard

Just saying you should limit your fps, then you could have some reserve grunt to handle those potential freezes? No point running 200fps if you don't have 200hz monitor.
