The raptor has the red stripe at "noon" on the steering why, why not the RS?! For track, autox, etc, it is a great feature to have. I was hoping they would add a blue or red one to match the interior. Especially since this is a "track" car.

Yeah I don't even bother with this on my endurance race car nor the track car, let alone a street car. I think it's kinda stupid for the Raptor to have it to be honest.

That stripe on the raptor is for when you hit a jump in the truck so you can keep your wheels straight when you come down. I don't think anyone will be jumping their RS

Maybe Raptor people aren't sure when they are going straight and need a color stripe indicator. :D :D :D
Woah woah woah........ *points at his signature* :p

Pretty sure almost anyone in the world can tell that without the stripe.

After road racing multiple cars with and without it I can say that it makes absolutely no real difference for me at least.

I hate the look so I'm actually glad it doesn't have it.
