Pit Stop Positioning

    I hope it's more forgiving than AC's which is a bit broken as you can stop in the pit box and nothing happen.
    It would be better if it was more forgiving positionally but poor positioning did cost you time.

    I'd actually go as far as saying that the pit box on AC is too forgiving. If you look at a real race, the driver usually stops within 10 or 20 cm of where the crew expects him to stop, not to mention sprint races at the Blancpain GT Series where the pitlane is so crowded that there's basically no margin for errors in that regard.
    On the other hand, spacial awareness on a monitor is way trickier than in real life, so even though it seems more forgiving than real life, I think it's okay as it is on AC 1.

    We'll have to agree to disagree as in all the time I have played AC I still don't know if you can re-position the car or only get one chance. It's not hard to stop in a box, if you miss the spot nothing happens, nothing is said , there is no indicator or pit board ,to show how far and which way out you are , is it lateral or longitudinal. If we are talking about realism why have a red box? And In real life I'm sure the pit crew wouldn't stand there and do nothing(or not appear at all ,AC) As there will be a pit crew in ACC knowing where to stop and being able to judge the resting position in 2D should be an improvement in itself I suppose.

    I normally do between 2 and 5 hour long races per week which include a mandatory pit stop. Nobody I have raced with has ever mentioned this problem, the only time I myself have missed my pit box has been due to not stopping the car in time which is my fault and does not indicate anything is broken. Simply moving back a tiny bit until in the pit box will trigger the stop.
    Verdict: No Issue :)

    Maybe some day there told be a function to increase the Pitstop time if you're not positioned perfectly.

    Yes I agree that would be a good solution, if you are in the box you are in the box and should be serviced 1 mm here or there shouldn't affect that other than in time taken.

    I never said I like the red box, I actually hope they ditch that for an actual pit crew to indicate where you should stop.
    The tolerances on AC1 are far greater than 1mm, as @LeiF said, the only times I haven't stopped my car properly were 100% my fault. It's really not that difficult to hit your pit box.

    I would certainly like to see a pit stop where you are not nicely on your marks take a little longer, just like in real life.

    Considering that real life pitstops take somewhere between a minute and 90 seconds if I'm not mistaken, and I believe there's a minimum time at the Blancpain Series, I don't see how stopping half a meter before or after the mark would make a significant difference. What would make a difference is if you stop so far ahead that the pit crew has to push you back.

    After reading the replies I found it hard to understand why others were not annoyed by the temperamental nature of Ac's pitting.
    What I have experienced st that sometimes it works but most times it doesn't and I end up pressing escape while in the pit to repair / refuel obviously with the huge time penalty. I went back and had a look and have found (as you are aware) that you have to tell the system what you want doing before you stop. It's not obvious but as suggested works well once you know.I'm not sure why you can't select what you want while stationary (doing so obviously costs you time). So I stand corrected, it works well once you know.

    Now it makes sense. You can also program your pitstops from the setup menu before you start the session.
