Is there a penalty for assists in FSR?

I know in other racing games, they try to balance the effects of driver aids by adding weight penalties for those who use them.

I have been using TC low and abs low in the Pro races, but in this summer break I've been training to drive no assists.

Just wondering if it's worth to race like that in Pro or am I just disadvantaging myself unneccesarily?

if you are using aids in the lower division's it will help you, but yes like you said it will add a weight penalty to the car and you will lose about 1 tenth or so, but if you still learning then keep them on, its only in the higher divisions you need to take them off to show your skill
 
That's what's coded ingame but I don't really know what do these numbers mean:
AID PENALTIES
TC: 0, 0.006, 0.010
ABS: 0, 0.006, 0.011
STABILITY: 0, 0.006, 0.010
AUTOSHIFT: 0, 0.001, 0.001, 0.002
STEERING: 0, 0.005, 0.008, 0.010
AUTO BRAKE: 0, 0.002, 0.003
INVULNERABILITY: 0, 0.0001
OPPOSITE LOCK: 0, 0.001
SPIN RECOVERY: 0, 0.002
AUTO PITSTOP: 0, 0.001
Autolift: 0, 0
Autoblip: 0, 0

0.6% of car weight added for using low ABS and the same for low TC.

So about 4KG for each.
