Default So, who's up for a use-your-car Forza 3 match?

Build your car to the closest specs of your IRL Miata and let's race!

Build your suspension to be exactly like the stuff you have right now. Ride height, rebound rates, camber, ect...

Rims the same weight (**** the style, who cares) and tires similar to what you have.

Engine to the same power in generally the same way that your car is making it (IE turbo, street/sport exhaust, blah blah blah...) and try to get it to as close to your real numbers as you can.

Yeah it's impossible to get it exactly the same in Forza as in real life, but you can get it close, and I figure it might be fun for us all to race the cars we have.

Yeah, you can be dishonest, and I don't ******* care, but it'll be a lot of fun if we all do our own.

I'll openly admit that the car I'll use if we do this isn't the one in my garage right now, but it is the one that I could have if I installed all my parts. And had an ECU. But it's essentially the one I'll have for spring when I take it out of storage.

So, who's up for it?

EDIT: For the track(s) I vote for that long Japanese one (Fujimoto Caido or something), the Nurburgring, Tsukuba, and Laguna Seca, any objections to this?

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not, but if you're not what's your gamertag? I'll one-on-one you on Fujimoto... and pwn you

Good race man, both of those finishes were ridiculously close. Especially the Fujimi one.

I suppose if enough people show interest we can do a drift battle. But for now I say we just strait-up race.

Whenever, I'll save the gamertags and just occasionally set up a match or something. Get online, I'll start one with everyone who's online now.
