ISSUE
Traction Control randomly enables.

DESCRIPTION
Hey guys, can't find this has been mentioned anywhere (maybe i didn't look hard enough) but traction control randomly enables for some races on the Dirt Oval and Mixed 1 tracks, even though it's turned off under the difficulty menu. It never actually shows enabled in the difficulty menu, but you can certainly feel the lack of throttle response when it occurs. Anyone who uses traction control anyway isn't going to notice.   I only race on a dedicated server, so I don't know if this happens in single player but I've noticed this occurring long before this last update in June. A few other racers can confirm this happening as well. Toggling traction control on and off again before the race seems to help. When this happens, I have to retire because TC totally kills the race. 

SCREENSHOT/VIDEO
Not something I can really provide a visual example of.

Hopefully this can be addressed in the next update.

Does the symptoms you mention occur in corners? If yes, it's likely that there's not enough torque (too much grip, too high gear, etc.).

I've experienced this bug as well, it only affects the two tracks that Spaceface has mentioned, I seem to see it on Mixed 1 reverse the most, basically, the car just bogs down everywhere, it's most noticeable trying to accelerate out of a corner, you just don't have the power you usually do, it slows me by 2 seconds or so a lap and leaves me uncompetitive, I usually just retire when it happens.

It will only happen randomly, and usually just to 1 or maybe 2 people out of a full field, i'm also unsure if this is only an issue online, but it's been there ever since Mixed 1 was added to the track list.
