    Gimme some of your gamer tags (mine is Kimpressor83) so I can have a fun in the rivals section trying to beat your lap times on various circuits. I mostly play E up to A class, sometimes S, because it provides more close and fun racing than the hyper classes (also less rammers) online.

    Also, nobody ever really talks until America starts to play it seems, though Aussies are kinda chatty too. But seriously, there's always an American having the need to tell you what everyone can read: irts loardin, inarmishern, I voa fo roe detlenta etc. which is just really amusing and makes for a fun drinking game if you're with a friend at home or something.

    Anyway, tags and comments go below. If it becomes a popular thread somehow, I'll maintain a list of gamer tags in the fipo.

  4. For A-Class I built some nice cars I can use around various circuits, by the way, but somehow masochism kicked in and I'm obsessed with trying to make the Metro 6R4 competitive. So far it only is around a wet Brands Hatch, but it's so goddamn skittish and I keep making adjustments to finally find some kind of sweet spot with this monster. So far I didn't, yet.

  10. Yeah I know what you mean.. you want the sleek ass, not that high square thing
    Anyway, saw that and couldn't help myself grabbing a Ford Falcon (XB tho) to at least beat your Catalunya A-class time :D haha
    Dunno if I'm gonna get that car pack tho.. probably I will
     
  11. This game and you guys talking about it are about the only reasons I have a slight interest in buying an xbox

    Created this A-Class monster, doing very well on medium speed (lime rock) up to higher speed circuits (sebring full, catalunya) and I'm pretty consistently ending up on the podium online among the typical X-Bows and Monos no problem. Very forgiving oversteer, very easy to cure understeer, gearbox nice and short so there's plenty of power available at any speed you're going. It's mostly really fun to drive, however. So anyway, tune made available, just search by username or something (I called it A Class Beast, if you rather look for the name). So give it a go ;)

    edit: talking about that Falcon XB, btw
    edit 2: already built a Jag D-Type that's a few tenths faster around Catalunya, but it's harder to be consistent with that thing

  14. Let's set some Rivals laptimes, as we're all in completely different timezones, the odds we'd be on a grid online altogether are rather slim.
    Any of you guys have a favourite class/circuit? We'll just give us all 1 week each time to set a best laptime. Actually, let's play it this way: whoever finishes in second place gets to pick the Circuit and Class, just to keep it awesome. Standard Forza rules apply: dirty laps are automatically inferior to (slower) clean laps.

    I'll start with the first mission and that's A-Class on Lime Rock Full Circuit
    Please set a time before midnight Sunday to Monday, UK time (that's July 11th or so).

    edit: the standard taggery @Aych Es Vee @Baklava @sixspeedfirebird and anyone else is free to join as well, just mention your gamer tag name here. Racing every challenge is not mandatory, but clearly the more people the more joy.
     
  15. I'm on holiday for a couple of weeks so i can't race :(
     
  16. That's ok, have a fun :D
     
  17. I feel like we tried this before, with mixed results, but I'm down to give it a try.

    Fully prepared to finish last every time.
     
  18. Yeah, I believe that was Forza 2 or Forza 3 when we did
     
  19. I must also say I do this with in the back of my head that maybe through google and the right keywords and whatnot, it may generate some new users without having to directly approach anyone, but maybe that's naive on my side that may happen.

  20. This month's B-Class Compact Classic challenge in the game is harrrd by the way, I'm still like 10 seconds off the pace, putting me in the 4th percentile instead of the usual 1st or 2nd. Just watched the replay of some guy doing it in a barely drivable 850'ish hp Alfa GTA, seriously _O_ And I was happy with my time in my Volvo 123GT already ffs
     
  21. I will try after work today!
     
  22. Post times as we set them? Post at the end? Or let the games rivals system handle it?
     
  23. What kind of Gamestation is this on
     
  24. Mine is thebarron111989
     
  25. I'm not on it as much as before but I'll get on tomorrow and add ya and try out the b-class compact classic challenge
