Jump Starts before Green

    I'am using manual clutch and get off the start line very fast but in my last GT3 race at Watkins Short using a Ruff with me on pole the 2nd spot and 3rd spot blew past me and it just turned green as they passed me so in my opinion they must be jump starting a 1/2 second before green and they never got a jump start penalty either.

    Wish they would put in place some type of a random start generator to stop this or i'll need to start practicing jump starting before the green too!

    I posted this as i was hoping that someone heard some good news to fix this problem.

    Kinda confirms what i've noticed. Couple of times i've felt that i had jumped the start but never got a penalty for it. I wonder if their is some sort of minimum distance you have to move forward before the game detects.

    I think its to prevent a false positiv when placed on the grid. But i dont think its that big.

    2 days ago i saw a video (youtu.be/oK46Ooc6dhA?t=225) wheter they had a dsync with the startlights. Maybe that also happend to you. Dont worry, i already showed the video to SMS-Stuff
    Afaik its a rare bug and i think it mostly happen when there are big grids

    Whatever it is, people need to be ghosted or something when they skip starts. Like 5 times now I've been wiped out by trolls who skip the lights and ram into me ending my race before its even begun
