If you do not accelerate after start, the AI ahead of you will reverse to you and then he begins to race. That is all I can see.

It has been happening to me too. Even when I accelerate, some of the AI stand still or go on reverse, which makes it chaotic because most cars get stuck there.

It's a behavior I never saw before 1.0.9.

I can't see how this can happen unless you're blocking the path of the AI behind you, certainly nothing in front of you should reverse unless something else is blocking them. I'm working on overtaking behaviour now coincidentally, so I'll ensure nothing dumb happens there before I'm finished.

The no-gas thing is almost certainly an initialisation issue with UE, and I'm not sure there's very much we can do about that.

I caught the AI reversing thing on video twice. They reverse even when they start in the first row. But it is only Dreadnoughts doing that.

Maybe they are staying in the same spot for too long because of the wheels spinning,so they reverse because they think they are stuck
