Playing on PC, I was in a two player lobby last night with a friend (both in same country). The car updates were happening fine and we were racing, but trying to chat we had problems where messages would take up to 30 seconds to send / appear on the other persons screen.

We had to resort to using steam chat in the overlay.

I have checked the known issues and this one isn't listed.

*GREAT* game btw SMS thanks for all your hard work.
