Oh definitely, if it's more realistic I'm all for it, just taking time to get used to it. Might adjust pace note timing to be earlier too, that might make things easier for me.Indeed, you will have to adjust. Braking distances are much longer now, closer to what you feel in RBR. It's much more realistic. In other games like DiRT Rally, SLRE and the previous WRC games it is ridiculously easy to stop the car.
This is a huge improvement IMO.
