I feel as this car could probably go into the 39s done properly, very annoying just trying to get all the lines dead on. I'll give a try on the other rival challenges, see what I do there.

1:42.xxx clean
top 1%
on the bmw, very interesting, probably closet to feeling like driving on the ring with the traffic.

For 40$ why not. At least it seems like it could be useful judging from the yuotube demos.

I'll have to try the demo tonight...

Do they have the option to set the clutch as a button? In forza3, if you used the clutch, every ten up-shifts was good for almost 0.5 of a second.

This also means I'll have to reactivate my live account so I can bump-draft hustler right off the track!!!!!

Also, I just bought the F1 car on iRacing, I'm not sure how much more exciting Forza4 could be. Going into turn 1 at suzuka, 3 wide, 6th gear, 160 mph, spotter telling you to stay left, and trail-braking hard into turn 2 at 100 mph. iRacing is sooooo addictive!!!!

Probably because it was boring as hell after a few laps, I'd always just have the "auto pilot" do that one for me.

That was the worst track on the game.

I just received this bullshit:

Edit: So game stop gets there preorders guaranteed before best buy. They didn't print enough / sold to many and game stop gets first dibs on covering there orders.

You will buy it. Take the best buy offer and get your $20 and the MS points will cover paying for the collectors upgrade pack.

They will not grantee a reserved copy for me, it's first come first serve with a pre-order. After they told me this I was nasty enough for the guy to hang up on me.

It wasn't that it was fun, it was the fact that I could take my monster cars out there and multi lap people in a 10 lap race. Long straight, turn, long straight. Now that I think about it, it wasn't that great really. But I don't see why they had to ditch that track. It's not like they added a bunch of new tracks in its place.

After looking at screen shots and videos of gameplay, I have to say the most impressive thing to me in F4 vs F3 is the improved lighting. The polygon count is up to double what it was on F3, and it shows, but the lighting really pulls it all together and makes for some very cinematic, life like racing.

The lighting didn't really hit me as hard until I went back and looked at F3 pictures. The lighting and reflections on cars looks so flat. HUGE change in F4.

I never thought I would see the day I found an Xbox game more beautiful than a PS3 game, but this day has come. F4 blows GT5 away graphically. WTF happened!? I remember GT1 like it was yesterday, and was blown away by those graphics. "Graphics could never get any more realistic than these, surely!"
