Hi people, just spreading my newfound knowledge to anyone who needs help with this..I feel it's my duty!

If you have been experiencing an "out of video memory" crash, I may have a solution for you. This is what worked for me. Here is my thread about it over on MTS2:

Basically you just have to correctly apply graphics rules maker to your game, then the 4GB patch. If the 4GB patch is giving you issues (like it was for me) there is a premade .exe that you download and plop into your TSBin that should work. I haven't experienced a crash since.

Hopefully this helps someone out there!
