    What's the point of upgrading your diff in this game if there is no advanced tuning? I figured it might be a limited slip diff but I couldn't manage to feel a difference between the any of the upgraded diffs vs. stock. So what's the point?

    In my experience, the Forza physics engine doesn't properly simulate driveline lash, in either FM4 or Horizon. Power oversteer is well accounted for, and you'll feel the difference between an open/limited-slip differential while spinning the wheels, but the drivetrain has little effect on handling in an off-throttle situation, rendering the 1.5- and 2-way options kinda pointless. Relative to the real world, all cars in FM4/Horizon are as steady as a rock when diving into a corner.

    It helps when you can tune the differential to the extremes, but IMO minor tweaking has only a placebo effect.
