The burning route timer freeze option freezes the timers on Burning Route, Midnight Run, Stunt Run, and Road Rage, but those are all "events" whereas the other timer pops up when you enter a road from where it "begins." And in a car, with traffic, sometimes they can be a little hard to beat.
save your position at the repair station.
drive around as long as you want
when you ready to repair, press teleport key
then press undo teleport key
and you are right back where you were with repairs.
the teleport stuff is very powerful for stuff like this.
same thing before races. save position, complete race, teleport back to area before you started race (if you want to, etc.)
