N.B. F9 is also the default key to turn on/off TrackIR. The result of this conflict is that it stops the key from working in LFS. Changing this key assignment in TrackIR software to something else not used by LFS (e.g. NumPad minus) will restore F9 functionality in LFS.

  • Clutch Temperature is in the S2's Y Patch and up.
