Anyone here know why they did not put the S60 R in Grand Turismo 3? The only Volvo in there is the T5. My 7 year old son just gave me my first a$$ wooping in our first race. He had the EVO while I selected the S60 T5 with stage I mod. His EVO was stock.. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: No S60 R in GT3 for PS2 (blackTT55)

I think they started developing these cars for the game WAY before the game was released, so they probably didn't have enought time to collect data on the R. I know the actual release date was pushed back at least 6 months from when the original release date. If they keep Volvos in the next GT, I don't see any reason why they shouldn't have an R.

Re: No S60 R in GT3 for PS2 (I Roll)

The R is in Forza for the xBox. I think that is the only game I saw the R in. You can mod it into the S (super) car class.

Forza is an XBOX game that IS compatible with the 360. Forza even has a 1/4 mile strip <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> If I remember correctly, the modded S60 R I had (520HP or so, about 500lbs in weight reductions) ran in the upper 10s.

It's a freakin hoot when set up properly.
