Look in the error log and find which bits make it crash then remove them. You will get some floating drivers with no car, or cars that don't actually race you because they have no wheels, but it stops the game crashing. I just got myself a new car, now I am scared of crashing it because I only have about $2000.
If i posted wrong link here then more reasonable act by mods should be just removing link, not deleting my entire post! edit*sorry but i stated a question on that post also for wich i was hoping to get an anserw from here.
This may sound like a silly question but after crashing my car my wheels are now wobbly, nothing in the suspension seems to be damaged more than about 70% and I can't afford to replace it all. What parts do I need to replace?
Sounds like you need to repair the chassis or the struts. anbiddulph I got my version with an added Mercedes with it, that was causing the crashes for me, the Meisel is either the Mercedes or a part of a car rather than the whole thing because one of the files I removed was Benz_Meisel.
Anyway, here are some pictures of my current ride.
