    Probably time for a wrc7 plugin then instead of 8. If memory serves me this uses memory hooks which are usually broken with every update. So with 8 out 7 is likely more stable now with few or no further updates. But if any of you want 8 badly enough you can read up on how to find pointers to the data needed in memory and share them then I'm sure yobuddy or value1 could whip you up a plugin in no time.

    If you google "site:xsimulator.net cheatengine" you'll find various introductions/hints/tips/tutorials, how to find the necessary telemetry data in the PC's RAM with CheatEngine.
    The documentation, how to code a plugin for SimTools is here.

    As mentioned by @BlazinH, WRC7 is maybe more stable than WRC8. Nonetheless this genre of games tend not to be updated/maintained so intensively like games in ßeta-stage (Wreckfest, Elite. etc.)
    So you have a fair chance that once you have built a plugin for WRC8 it will remain working for a long time.

    fyi they never update the wrc games to many times, once released they are not very well supported, they grab the cash and move on to the next edition.

    Although the release date in the video is September 2019, it says at least twice on Steam
    September 2020.
    As September 2019 is already history and the game is not released, I must assume that the release date of Steam is right not of the video…

    Are there any plans for a WRC8 plugin? I'll gladly send a Steam game code to @value1 or @yobuddy if either of you guys interested. Thanks!

    Unfortunately the game does not provide any telemetry to use with the simulators.
    So a memory hook plugin would be the best we could do.
    (And they can are trouble some, as with every update, we need to find the correct pointer all over again.)
    Take care,
    yobuddy
