Thank you for taking the time to reply...I personally I have not noticed a difference and thought it was something that was going to be implemented later...so it's great to know all is the same and I still have a slight edge on the Controller racers...LOLI think there's a some sort of misunderstanding here. The delay was added to digital clutch only (i.e. clutch mapped to a controller button), meaning that in case you use the pedal (analog input) there is no difference at all and the speed at which you can shift is only limited by the speed of your foot and hand. The change was done because you could abuse the digital clutch it by shifting in a fraction of a second, making it very unfair towards those using a pedal.
Neat setup, by the way!
Keep up the great work and my Rig set up works perfectly in Wreckfest....it's awesome...lol
