I fitted the heavier wheels, bumper and wing. that way you can add alot more plus strip excess weight with the weight reduction.

Heavier wheels, bumper and wing? So you've added weight and increased drag and can't work out why you're going slower?

two sides to every coin

Means can add other, more valueable items. Also can adjust downforce. Plus the weight you add with the wheels you can take off in other areas. and the wheels bring other benefits too.

Thing is though, the car is balanced well enough as standard. Ideally you just want to get rid of as much weight as possible without messing with anything else.

Even though you're changing downforce, you've got 2 whacking great extra bits on your car that create extra drag which isn't needed which will just make you slower than the standard car.

You dont need at all to play with downforce, its a clio not an 800bhp monster....

Will make it slower trust me!!

Best with leaving wheels etc std, adding an LSD, Race Brakes, Race Flywheel etc etc.....

Get the fuck out!

Gran Turismo is absolute shite compared to Forza 2 and that's coming from someone who has played every single GT to death.

Tell you what, give us 3 reasons why GT is better than Forza 2, and you're not aloud to mention graphics as that's a given.

tbh ive only spent about an hour on forza so i cant really make any sort of judgement yet. but so far, i think the graphics are a little bit shit, and it just doesnt 'feel' right.

It doesn't feel right because you're used to that absolute garbage that is GT

Press up on the D-Pad whilst you're racing, that feature alone is better than tall of the GT games put together!
