Sounds like it. How often does the bit pattern repeat itself on the driving controller? If it only repeats once per revolution, the odds of being able to do this would be really slight. If it repeats once every 1/4 or less, I could see it being possible to "skip" or "jump" if you moved the paddle around quickly.

Since a regular paddle is an absolute measure and the indy500 is a relative measure, any variances caused by not reading the paddle often enough should fix themselves with the following sample, but with the indy500 controller an error like this would be permanent. You'd turn the wheel and the car wouldn't rotate.
