Does using pad hinder your performance on stick?

I searched this up on google and got… the wrong thing.
But basically, I’m a beginner wondering if using pad will hinder my performance, the specific pad i’m talking about (don’t laugh) is the PS Vita, since I have both the 360 and vita versions of the game. I’m just kind of paranoid because i hated adjusting to stick, I don’t wanna do it again man, may seem like a weird question, but hey.

yes + no
if you want to get better on stick, you practice on stick

if you’re proficient with stick already, it doesn’t hinder you completely

Play the game on 360, not the Vita (unless I misunderstood your post). Use pad if you are the most comfortable with it, it will serve you well enough.
