And this is what you've tested? Can you prove it?The wheel wheelspins in 4th gear in the wet. The Pad 2nd. Wheel users cannot keep up with pad users through slow corners as the traction of the pad is unreal! And this is on PC. Cant imagine what its like on console!
I can say that i have defenetly no disadvantage with wheel in traction things against the pad users in our ligue (and there are some good pad users, like klawutzke or fat1st). The fastest time in 1st sector spa in our tt event is from a wheel driver. I always have the best start in online races, with my wheel against pad users.
So in my view, this bug does not exist on the PC.
