New Forza Aero

I would absolutely love to see more Forza aero options across the board! The current options are very limiting and not very appealing. There’s also the single front splitter which can be absolutely huge on some cars. The Ferrari 812 Superfast immediately comes to mind, the front splitter exists within a separate time zone.

What I’d like is for every car to have multiple options, anything from subtle to outlandish for the front and rear options. In addition I’d really like to be able to paint these pieces rather than having so much carbon fiber thrown around. CF is a custom paint option already so why not make it optional? Having aero options which look like they could have been installed from the factory would be terrific. The 1986 Mustang SVO is a great example, the Forza spoiler looks like it belongs on the car and the front splitter is much more subtle.

If I could put some nice looking spoilers on my muscle car collection I would be one very happy lady. Something like the Plymouth Cuda or Mustang Boss 302’s factory aero. And if we were lucky enough to go crazy and put a Superbird/Charger Daytona massive rear wing on the back I’d certainly put those to use as well.

Last thought, this might disrupt the PI balance but it would be nice if we could use the aero options purely in a decorative sense. I like keeping my cars in their native PI class so having extra downforce on D, C, and B cars is unnecessary and sometimes detrimental. On higher PI cars only having rear aero can disrupt their handling.

Its a bit disappointing to see the lack of interest in having new aero options. The lack of customization for individual vehicles in a game with such a large and detailed car list is understandable. However, the amount of creativity that can be expressed with body modification is limited. When vehicles that do not have “custom” aero options, mainly modern sports and super cars, they are likely to only have the splitter and Forza wing options. This on its own would not be too much of a problem, however when the player is only limited to a one-size-fits-all type option, it lowers the amount of options a player has to make their vehicle look how they want. For example, if a player wanted to make their car a fictional GT3 car (say a Mercedes C63) with the correct aero. They want a splitter that is the correct length and width and a wing with the correct height, width and endplate style. With the current option, there is only one option that is scaled to the width of the vehicle and might not satisfy the vision of the player.
This is where the introduction of customizable aero comes in. Giving the player control over individual aspects of the Forza aero can open new customization options up to the player, without the need to go thorugh the tedious process of adding real life parts. It could be a sliding scale for the size of the splitter:

And one big thing can be the option to not have the tow hook, have the current tow hook, and maybe even a cloth style tow hook:

The amount of individuality a person can express through the car aero that can be picked to their liking can be used instead of using tedious real-life bodykits. This freedom in aero options should be considered in being added in-game.
