He wasn't taking the race serious enough . He took me out on lap 24 when I was battling for first with TPM and Boost. Knowing that he caused more than one incident makes my decision easy. So we won't have to worry about him anymore.

Thanks to everyone on the restart after I dropped! I was having a lot of fun running side-by-side with curly, lapdog, and sloked for 4-5 laps.

Going to look at the replay this afternoon, get the pictures together and try to do a recap of the race

Sucked that my connection is so spotty, but I guess that's what I get for "borrowing" my internet.

I did spectate for a while with various drivers...you guys are waaaaay smoother and more precise with your steering inputs than I am. I know at least some of you (most of you?) are still using controllers -- I don't understand how you can progressively tighten up the steering as you approach a corner, and then smoothly let it out as you roll on the throttle. My thumb pad is too sensitive -- I feel like everytime I move it off dead-center the car is jumping left or right.

You can adjust that int he game. I picked-up my crappy Xbox wheel for $50 at a used-game store.

I think we can make it easier on everybody for starting lineup with a easy way to put everybody in the correct order.

How do you propose we accomplish this?

I hope your connection smooths out next time.

I use the joy-sticks, not the thumb-pad, unless that's what you mean. It really just takes a lot of practice, I have to remind myself coming out of most 90* turns to track-out(don't hold the stick all the way) and ease onto the throttle. Smooth is definitely fast on Forza, that's for certain.

I've had one for a couple of years. Used it in FM2 and 3. Haven't really tried it with FM4 though. It does help with longer sweeping corners. Easier to hold the stick at smaller steering angles instead of twitching it between straight and full-lock all the time.

What Oscar said. I use one, the U shaped one. I don't know that it's made me faster by a huge margin, less than a second I'd say. The big thing it did for me was cut down on hand fatigue with long races.

9:05 in my MR2. I used our earlier spec car, added the race tranny, weight, and cage, and them some power. It's a really nice little car.

Can we PLEASE run with damage off? Not because of other cars, but because of the walls. Holy cow carnage.
