wing is a slang term used to describe the way it looks...  no one belives that's what it actually is... it's an anti-wing if want ot be technical

not quite correct.... IF you actually look at the cross section of a wing/spoiler you will see that it is actually a wing that is mounted UPSIDE DOWN, in other words so that instead of getting lift (which is what a wing does) it actually creates downforce. Ask any pilot or aeronautical engineer and they could explain it in terms that you would never be able to understand.

not trying to be rude man, but don't you think that's what I meant by "Anti-wing"??? Discourages lift???  lol

Don't be anal_retentive (and incorrect) when correcting other people and you don't have to worry about getting it in return.

Note: It should also be "damn", "it's" and "you're".

There is a clear difference between "wings" and "spoilers"...

A wing on a car acts the same exact way a wing on an air plane does, except in reverse creating downforce instead of lift...

A spoiler just simply disrupts the low pressure pocket of circulating air that develops behind the car reducing the drag coefficient...

Seriously man, did you even try it? Front extensions do not add ajustability to front donwforce! And they souldn't, what add's adjustability to front downforce, is the spoiler under your front bumper, but it dosent and i don't see any point of installing in on your car, just a waste of money! This game just dosent make any sense!

This is the most restrictive GT in the series, what is the reason that there's no way i can fully apply/adjust downforce to any vehicle? There's not a single car in GT5 that is allowed to adjust front downforce, many of them won't even allow you to adjust rear!

Funny...looking at the tuning settings on my F2007, I can adjust front and rear downforce.  I can also do this on the FGT.

Some are fixed, some are adjustable. It would be nice to know how much downforce the fixed front extensions add.
