We could do Spec Miata,

I have figured out the closest we can get to SCCA Spec Miata racing.

SCCA Spec Miata Build:

1994 MX-5 Miata

Wheels: +2 lbs. (I used the American Racing Torq-Thrust M, but there are other choices, just make sure it adds 2 lbs.)

Upgraded front tire width 205/50R15

Upgraded Rear tire width 205/50R15

Sport tire Compound

Racing Beat Street Rear Wing (Allowed, optional)

Street Transmission (Changes Fluid and adds a short throw shifter, both allowed)

Street Brakes (Changes Fluid, pads, and adds steel lines)

Sport Springs and Dampers

Race Front Anti-Roll Bars

Race Rear Anti-Roll Bars

Roll Cage

Sport Weight Reduction (Supposed to be normal battery, but everything else allowed)

Street Fuel System

Sport Ignition

Street Exhaust

Street Oil and Cooling

Final Rating: D296


This is as close as I can get it. You are allowed to remove all the stuff the game lists as removing with the weight reduction, but the car is under minimum weight. In the actual series, they add ballast where they want to make up that additional weight. I don't think we can do that. Also, the 1.8 L Miatas have to run with restrictor plates in the series so they are even with the 1.6 L Miatas. I don't think we can add restrictors, but no one can run a 1.6 L Miata in the game, anyway


Any body game for that? Or make it c-class?

we can do that. or have an all c-class race. or b-class, or hell even s-class. (full built and boosted miata is s-class) and we can also have a run what you brung race lol. super tight course isn't gonna benefit a 500hp miata, 250-200 could win easily given there were no super long straights lol

This makes me want to get a 360 instead of a ps3 for GT5. How in depth is the tuning in this game?

Not much different from Forza 2, quit a leap from GT4.

It only takes that 1 person to ruin my night though. I can remember once on Forza 2 I had 2 or 3 British kids laughing and deciding to give up on racing and waited for me, the leader to come back around and then they all 3 ganged up on me and started wrecking me and pinning me against the wall and whatnot, all while laughing. This was like the last 2 laps of a 20 lap race I had been working hard on for the last half hour for a large pot, so I was a bit pissed off after that. I kind of lost the taste of racing against people I didn't know. I would hope no one on here would have bad enough e-manners to do that kind of thing, or to ram people. I usually have good racing manners and will let someone who is faster around me just to avoid a tangle because of the slight lag that always exists. If they deserve it anyway, and seem like decent racers.

My game representation of my Miata is pretty close. Its slow and ugly. I even made the front bumper and mirrors faded to pink so it was even more real. Now only if it was a soft top and not a hard top I would be set. We need to plan a race, I always miss it when someone on here decides they want to race. Plan it a day or two ahead at a set time.

Honest answer please: Is this game enough of an upgrade for forza2 to be worth paying full price for it right now?

What are the benefits of this game, is there alot more courses? Touge runs like in Forza1? I hear you can get a NA now but is it worth the cash?

If I thought Id be playing at the same time as you guys I would say a spec miata race and a C-class race would be good. Spec would be good as everyone has the same so its down to driving. C-Class has so many options the driving would be so filled with fun it would be epic although I would suggest shorter lengths for C-class.

My A600 miata is only competitive on short tracks and its a handful, but man does it stick on a 70+mph turn.

c class miatas are fun, I was able to put up a couple top 100 and 1 top 50 times on some short tracks in my c classer, but anything that requires WOT in 4th gear and i'll get bumped 2000-3000 spots on the leaderboard lol.



Like I said, I'll be on around 5-6 est tonight to play some, I was going to invite some guys from clubroadster as well (they play clean).
