Has anybody else experienced sudden "Catchup" when leading a race? I've had it a few times now, and am certain I'm not mistaken, as I know my Entity and the tracks well enough. No crashes or anything to even begin causing enough damage to reduce my top speed, either.
But, when it happened just now, I got to see a player standing on the edge of the road at one point. Maybe I'm just paranoid about someone being responsible, but I am not mistaken that "Catchup" didn't begin until about halfway through the first lap.
Anyway-- it would be cool to get it confirmed that this is something that can be done by those modding the game.
