Dirty laps count? Or we posting clean runs only?

And to make it interesting, should we set a class restriction? Or maybe even all use the same car? (Either stock or on in the club garage)

If we're going to do it, I think the laps should be clean. If u have everything turned off except rewind, you will get a dirty lap of u rewind.

Therefore, use whatever assists u want, just go for your best clean lap.

Also, just pick a stock car. Therefore it's an "even" playing field.

I say we have different classes. Each with 1-10. Clean runs only. Pm me if you're playing so I can make the list. I'll make it when I get home

I'm just thinking out loud, but isn't this exactly what the rivals is for? This seems pretty redundant IMO.

Yeah no offense but Matt is right. This is exactly what rivals mode does. No sense in posting all that here when it already keeps all those stats.

This is also the NESIC forza group. There is a general NASIOC group that can be found in OT. They do weekly group races last I checked. You're welcome to join but can only be a member of one club at a time.

Just did the 'Ring with the R15 only assist was manual no clutch. 6:49.047. There were two places I went off a bit but Forza considered it still clean. I think its because I didn't gain any time from them.

Yea that sounds about right for your driving. I did a 7:01.0sumthin while playing pinball off a few walls, so these times sound fairly accurate. Again though, I'm gunna stick to all the rivals races, as they record the times for u. Plus it's fun when u know you're sending someone the notification that their time was trumped.

Anyone else agree that the GT3rs is prob one of the greatest cars in the game??

I've been using it pretty much non stop in career mode. Just a few mods to get the P.I. to 700. Amazing how fast it will take turns, and how controlled it is if you push it too far.

Now i need a real one :'(

Anybody else see the official trailer released at E3 yesterday? At first glance, it's everything Forza shouldn't be in my opinion. Just looks too much like a NFS/Arcade game.

I had just finished up career mode when the Porsche stuff was released. I started a new season in career mode and have been pretty much using only the gt3. Once in awhile ill use the gt2.

Im gonna try and use only porsche for this whole series. Already up to level 12 affinity.

Just watched it. Looks like it will be fun, even though it reminds me of NFS.

Only thing i always hates about NFS games was it was never very realistic (Forza isnt 100% dead on, but its a lot more realistic)

So, if this is gonna be like a NFS with realistic handling and somewhat realistic damage an such, i will def enjoy it.

Legal street racing yo!

I agree. I gotta say I miss just randomly roaming around a city for a while, and if it has realistic physics that would be awesome. Just gunna have to see how it is when it comes out.

True. If the physics are there, then it does have potential. If multiplayer mode lets us all join up and just cruise the open world and street race, then it might be worth it just for that. I'm still slightly skeptical about gameplay though. We'll see.

Sounds like it'll be dripping of NFS. I'm going to reserve my opinion until at least the demo comes out. Also, I'm also holding out because I haven't dropped $ for the Porsche pack an the latest dlc pack. (C6R ZR1 anyone!?)

To sum it up: Forza Horizon, because no racecar.

Hopefully there is a random parking lot big enough that we can have xbox live Subaru meets.
