Issues unresolved[edit]

Thrustmaster peripherals issues[edit]

Thrustmaster wheels may not be configurable.[7][8]

Missing co-driver audio[edit]

Some audio devices may not play the co-driver audio.[9][10][11]

Stuttering[edit]

The game may exhibit regular stuttering during gameplay.[12][13][14][15][16]

Stuttering may be alleviated by unplugging some USB devices[17] or mitigated by turning on Vsync and limiting the framerate.[18][19][20]
Stuttering may also be caused by Gsync/Freesync/VRR. The engine isn't compatible. The fix is capping the frame rate to 60 and enabling vsync or vsync fast(nVidia) as well as disabling Gsync/Freesync/VRR completely. This works in WRC 8,9 & 10 and other games using this engine.

    "So I found a fix for these stutters. Guess what was the issue. A f,cking usb devices, not a vsync, not a graphics settings. Idk what to say. Now there is only wheel and gearbox connected to my pc and game finally works well. There is no other game that has a problems with my usb cables. Also I even installed WRC 9 to check it out and there is the same issue. So if you changed your settings and vsync and game still stutters unplug all usb devices and plug your wheel to main usb socket."

    "using RTTS (part of MSI Afterburner) to cap the framerate at 60 fps on my 165 Hz G-SYNC display and enabling the in-game V-Sync option (something not normally required for G-SYNC displays) almost completely gets rid of the nauseating microstutters while cornering."
