Need to do more rival races. Less world tour, more money.

I'm in for Twin Rings.

Yeah I'll be happy to send you one of the cars too.... or all three, whichever.


Times seem to be in the 1:20s-1:23s with all three cars. The NSX and Skyline were really close for me.

Can someone please tell me why the god-damn A class Exige is so much faster than the 2-Eleven? This is bullshit.

Also, something is jacked on my account and it thinks I'm not a "registered Forza user" when I try to do the Veloster races, which is also bullshit.

I'll try out the Skyline, please...I like AWD with the race cars, me not so good at controlling high HP RWD cars.

Thanks!

All the cars are RWD, unfortunately. I was actually thinking the exact same thing when I first heard about the race. If you run with TCS on, it isn't too bad though.

The Skyline is still fairly grippy if, like he said, you run TCS.

If you're having traction issues, I feel bad for you son. I got 99 cookies cause a bitch ate one.

No but frsrly, turn down the accell on the diff some and it'll come out of the corners a little more stable.

Diff tuning is good too. I have not messed around with the tuning of the cars too much yet but I just know that, personally, I cannot put down a decent time without TCS on in these cars. Drifting has tainted my soul...

with diff settings what should I do for decel? I Am curious because I never really got around to tuning the diff. Also noticed in this game you really can't go extreme with the alignment... All the top leader board guys claim to have no more than 1.5- camber in the front and 1.0- and the rear.

I usually set it at 45-50 then add more until it locks up under a down-shift. Then I'll decrease it by 5%.

Yeah I don't run alot of camber, in any of my tunes.

I'm still sort of newbish when it comes to car's, but observing from a few local friends who have tracked their car they seem to get pretty aggressive camber like 2.5- front and 1.5- rear... I also notice this on f1 cars where they have a wicked amount of camber in the front and a bit in the rear... but I guess in this game not so much?
Thanks for the Diff advice when I get home later I will run it and see how it goes. I mainly drive with no TCS and high HP RWD

I run -1.5 in the front at most, on all cars. Decel settings around 30-35%. Anymore just induces annoying understeer. Accel settings around 50-60%.

its forza man, its not even close to being a real simulator.
I don't even tune my cars generally.

I leave my diff settings at whatever they have them usually around 75% accell and decell

this ^

Although, you can bring the camber to -5 in the front and back, if you wanted. The only time I really mess with the tuning is when I drift... then I set the front camber to as low (?) as possible, mess around with sways, a bit of suspension, and accel diff to 100%. No ban hammer plz
