    Some cars IRL have downshift protection, they wont let the driver over rev it even when they downshift a bit harder they are being allowed to do without kiling the engine or damaging the gear box. When Reiza added the DP they also added proper damage model to the gearbox, I think rF2 does not even have that yet
    THis is also usefull to stop people from downshifting a GT like they are driving a 2018 F1 8 gears car lol

    this kind of feature must be like the rest features..
    "enable or disable by user"
    forcing drivers use this kind of thing it ruins the driving experience

    Disagree, it’s an inbuilt feature you cannot disable in real life.
    It’s not like a rF2 driving aid, so I don’t see why this feature could ruin your driving experience.

    If the cars have it in real life then yes the cars should have it here.

    If they don’t then no

    My driving style is based on downshifting
    which means i downshift when i choose to and not car limits from electronic features aka downshift protection
    assetto corsa has that feature and it sucks badly

    Agree. It should be ppls own choice if they want to drive with unrealistic settings. But the cars should be setup with the Real life aids etc enabled as default IMO. Hope the new UI will have that feature.

    With cars that have no downshift protection the only way to prevent people from doing stupid driving is to add gearbox damage and make it follow the car from one session to the next one (together with engine damage too)
    *and make it extra sensitive in hot lap competitions

    The LM GTE regs allow "Automatic downshift interdiction" I guess that's it then.

    downshift protection is a method used by racing teams to reduce cost :)

    How much did you pay for the new engine after pressing ESC?

    downshift protection is like facebook
    it is installed inside all devices cause its a popular app that companies think its a must and we cannot live without
    downshift protection is like facebook integration in driving life
    Nobody need it :)
