So... Anybody figured out what parameters are relevant to performance points yet? I mean, beside HP and weight of course.

Balance of HP weight and downforce

yeah, tires, suspension, transmission ... don't seem to do anything.

it does take torque into account (see how a supercharger raises the PP higher than a similar HP'd mod).
that and engine layout, too

Engine layout? You mean, Front-Engine, Rear-Engine, Mid-Engine and stuff?

Weight distribution is also taken into account.

I added 164 kilos to my car to get it down to 550 PP. I then moved the ballast all the way to the back of the car at the PP jumped to 551.

aerodynamics affect it but only slightly

By that I mean adding downforce

I think it's calculated using these factors, in order of most to least impact on PP rating:
1 - Power
2 - Weight
3 - Downforce
4 - Weight distribution, torque differences, drivetrain layout, etc.

I have six Formula GTs, each of a different color. Each of them has 935 horsepower, with the exception of one that has 929, as I recall. All but the silver one have their default tuning setups. However, only three of them have 910 PP. Naturally, the one that's missing a few horses has slightly lower, like maybe 900 PP. My silver one dropped to 904 PP after I adjusted its tuning settings. As an experiment I took another with 935 HP and 910 PP and lowered its brake bias to something like 5/2 and it dropped PP, but when returning it to 5/5 it never regained PP.

So..., I'm a little confused. I see how the one missing 6 HP has slightly less PP, and I can even see lowering the brake settings dropping a little PP, but I don't see how raising brakes back up don't return the lost PP or why one I never touched doesn't have the same 910 PP as other FGTs with identical stats (the mileage differences between them are only slight).

Has anyone else noticed this annoying fluctuation on the PP of cars when selecting them for online races?

I have my garage sorted to arrange cars by PP - as this is how i prefer to race online. So, i will see a car relevant to my set limit, say a 633PP Iroc Z Camaro, then i will select that car, go into settings, and see that the diagram shows the PP number as 594. It's super frustrating - as it takes much longer to find a car suitable for a race. Can anyone tell me what's going on here?! This is highly annoying and i hope they patch it.
