no its not mate. its still a 1.6 ton VW golf. the diff will not affect the physics. it may feel better, but you aint going round them any quicker. next....

....Since when were you a professor in physics? :grin:

Any FWD car with an ATB diff will drive faster through a corner than the same car without - No?

I was writing physics engines for simulation/military 15 years ago. Now playing with 3d mostly as physics doesn't change much over time. ...unless you're a GTI driver? :P

But it's still very much a uber-stylish and ultra rapid car. That cannot be disputed. :cool:
