Hey SMS there is a huge bug in the shifting on the Audi V8, the downshift revs are delayed in matching, it makes the car too unpredictable not knowing when the revs will match, i have to heel toe or blip the gas to have the revs engage, also you'll see that the gears up shifting from 3-4-5 will not engage at times although i have the clutch engaged, this happens at random times, i have no problems in the Benz evo II Group A, haven't encountered it on the M3 in the same class either.

Ohhh wow, just noticed that my engineer can be heard on the youtube upload, but he wasn't heard at the moment i was running out to the track when i did it live.

Update on the engineer, this looks to be due to my chat volume being down on my Sony Gold headphones at the time)

This is the experience I also have with this car and the 240Z. Very strange that the revs go to idle.

I'll have to try the 240z tonight.

I also have it with the Sauber AMG C9. No mather how slow I shift or even at low revs. The needle drops to idle.

Yeah the 240z is really bad on that delay, it's undrivable, once that rev kicks in a turn it causes you to spin out, essentially it's a shift-lock affect


And this is the Sauber C9, its a bit more random on the C9 but it's there as well.
I dicided to try via the paddleshifter at 2:07

Exists across multiple cars - the shifting has a lag. In PCars1, the gears shifted in line with your shifter - as quick as you could physically do it.

With P Cars too, there is a clear lag between physical shift and the car in game shifting. The clutch also doesn't seem to sync up leading to shift lock.

The unintended and unpreventable and unpredictable shift lock makes me look like a bad driver
