I have played quite a few games in my french wheeled light tanks, and I found an issue that I simply can't stand.

I am the kind of player who likes to spare his W and S keys, so I use cruise controls (R and F keys for me).

In wheeled vehicles, when I try to change between drive modes with my X key, I have to press and hold W, then switch travel mode with X, then press R twice again. When I forget to press R twice the tank stops immediately. I think this makes a huge disadvantage e.g. in 1v1 situations against tank destroyers.

 

I suggest to solve this problem by making wheeled tanks keep moving when the player likes to use the cruise control buttons, and switches travel mode.

Leave it as it is. BTW the poll doesn't make sense to me. Also I think this is only your problem, and you're using cruise control wrong. I never use CC with fast tanks, i need to be able to stop or handbrake-turn quickly.

I don't use R and F for WVs since you need to make very fast choices and I need to do it manually not on auto pilot. And I have switched X key and assigned it to my mouse side button. It's easy now

Don't, they're fun. Took me some time to get used to them but now that I got the hang of it they really are very, very fun.
