    OK, first issue:

    I have the season pass, but Steam does not show me owning the Brazilian Legends DLC and they also do not who up in the game.

    I hate to throw in a wishlist thing at this point, but since there's been work on the keybinds, would it be possible to add modifier keys to be usable in keybinds, like Ctrl and Alt? It would almost double the amount of stuff you could bind to a wheel. Assign one button as the modifier, suddenly the rest can have two functions each. (Unless there's a technical limitation that prevents this of course.)

    Edit: Never mind. Looks like there's a workaround as pointed out later in the thread.

    Looking forward to testing all the new toys. :D
