TC off
Toggle TC
TC toggle
In most cars: Turns traction control off for 5 seconds and automatically puts it back on after. This is handy for turning the car quickly around by allowing for spinning of rear tires. Due to VA having a hard time distinguishing ‘traction control off’ and ‘Traction control up’, turning Traction control off is the only command using the TC abbreviation. (default Alt-J)

In the following cars, TC off will not automatically turn itself back on: Mercedes AMG GT3, Ford GT GT3 (know other cars? Let me know on [email protected])

Status of the 100 car
Return position of another car. Specify the car number of the car you want details on and DRE will attempt to look up the data for you.

Pit stall ahead on track
Pit box ahead on track
Pit position ahead on track
Pit relative ahead on track
After the first pitting in this session, DRE knows where the pit stall of this driver is located relatively to your own. This is useful especially on oval racing for getting track position when returning to the track

Target petrol to finish
Returns the fuel burn per lap that you need to achieve in order to finish the race on this tank of fuel. This number will be considerably low in case you need to do pit stops. The fuel burn will also sometimes be presented as a difference to your last lap usage, so you’ll know how much you need to save before achieving this. Value gets updated after each lap.
Reset fuel
Gas reset
Petrol reset
Resets the average lap fuel to 0. Call this in case you have bad average fuel data. The following lap will be the initial average fuel then.
Set target fuel to [0..20]
Set fuel target to [0..20] point [0..9]
Set fuel target to [0..20] pounds
Set fuel target to [0..20] kilos
Define the target fuel by voice with this command, which can be activated to be reported to you after each lap with the command, Activate target fuel. Changing target amount and fuel unit will change the corresponding values in DRE.ini. You may also change the values directly from DRE.ini instead if you have difficulties hitting your amount via voice. Units can be either our default liter/gallons defined by iRacing, with an additional option to define kilos / pounds). You may include up to 1 decimal for the amount, so eg. “1.4”.
Set target fuel to last lap
Set fuel target like last lap fuel usage
Define the target fuel from the fuel usage of the previous lap with this command, which can be activated to be reported to you after each lap with the command, Activate target fuel. Changing target fuel here will also change the corresponding values in DRE.ini. You may also change the values directly. Units can here only be either in liters or gallons.

Hi DRE
Hello The DRE
Acknowledges you and gives a feedback that The DRE is running
Make a note about *

Set a reminder about *
Remember to *
Remember me to *
Start a dictation mode which will save what you say. Everything you say at the asterix will be noted, eg. “Remind me about rear wing adjustment”. This will automatically be said back to you when you are back in garage and out of the car. This is useful for when you are reminded of something while driving but can’t note it down (or are forgetting stuff easy). Once you are out of the car, this will be said back. Unfortunately at this moment this feature is not that great at understanding what you say precise, so I suggest to only say special easily-understood words, which you know what means when hearing them again. Eg. pronounce the vital part twice: “Remind me to rear wing rear wing”.
Store notesReads back when returning to garage, what is currently in the ‘notes’, which you have dictated

Tells you the current time. Change the say-function from {TIME} to {time} if you want the time in 12 hour format instead of 24 hour.

Extra DRE LogicDo not call this. The purpose of this command is to secure that alert boolean, “ttsspeaking” never stays false for longer than 30 seconds.
Suspend listeningUse this command if you speak on Teamspeak, Discord or iRacing voice chat, and don't want DRE to listen while you are talking to someone else. Assign a keybind to these commands (needs to be the same for this and “Resume listening”), and use the keybind which you press to speak in either of the VOIP apps. (default Ctrl+Shift+D)
