I think it’s more apparent on some cars than others, I’m not sure is a massive advantage? I’ve rarely got through a race without missing a shift and have made a few bad starts where I’ve missed 2nd gear off the line, that really sucks!I didn't know the advantage was that big though.
Why not ban steering wheels too since the advantage in feedback is tremendous, compared to the standard controller?
I sometimes think they should have matchmaking for wheel or pad only it would stop the complaining about a game that to me seems pretty balanced between wheel and pad.
I also think the pad players have some advantage over wheel users in that the pad has speed sensitive steering and it’s possible to go from lock to lock much faster than on a wheel. I find drifting on pad easy while it takes more skill to do it right on a wheel. And you pad users don’t have to pack the rig away each time you play just simply put the controller down and you’re done
