This behavior is present even back in 0.77 - as far back as I can test it with the current romset.
Do I think it's an emulation bug? I'd like to see some PCB proof that these little glitches didn't happen in the original hardware. Confirming, but setting as possible. It would be nice if Aaron could chime in since the driver and most parts used in it are entirely of his design.

there is a gap in the car too, surprised that wasn't pointed out as well...

I seem to remember the game being a little rough around the edges, so it wouldn't surprise me if these were actual game bugs. I agree tho, would need checking on a PCB.

Not a bug. You can see the gap in the road pretty clearly in this video:

There are many gaps in the game. It's just the way it is.
