    Yes, high and low downforce wing selection with some tunability, engine wear level (affects power multiplier and increases likelyhood of engine failure), and for tyres there will be hard, medium, soft, wets and intermediate wets.
    Not as such, but I do compare ideas for jbeam stuff with a few people currently.

    If you increase downforce, will you have to change the stall angle to stop it from taking off?

    Its not gonna be taking off, everyone relax :D The front and rear wings will be slightly adjustable, but by increasing the downforce on the wings there will be an increase in drag and therefore a reduction in straight line speed.

    All I hope for is something that can mash your mind in the bends also is there any chance for a hybrid model maybe with awd for a future update?

    Can confirm that even the test car is brainmeltingly fast, and no, there is zero chance of a hybrid car and even less chance of an AWD version, it would require a totally different drivetrain setup which isn't in the direction I want this mod to go.

    It's going to have a supercharged v8 hooked up to a sequential tranny (not sure about the tranny part)
