No I usually take the cars. Think im up to like 55 now.

Ive only used up one of my vip 100% bonus cards so far. Im gonna save the rest of them for when they turn the automatic vip bonus back on and see if use them to get like 200% credit bonuses for 20 races

Also dont forget to go to forzamotorsport.net and go to the rewards section. They give you free money every 7 days or so. Just have to go redeem it.

Oh my god these trophy trucks are ridiculous 10 fucking laps on the alps and best i could get was 4th. Im kicking the AI down a notch, this is not worth the frustration. SO much countersteering. My arms are actually sore after that race. And that was just the first one.

Thats what I SHOULD have done. Instead of buying the one forza recommended. My arms are sore from all the countersteering, my left knee hurts from stomping the brake pedal. christ. Fuck that series. NOT doing that one ever again. Prague actually was kinda fun tho I must admit. And I usually hate prague.

Seeker is DONE. Decided to treat myself and blow 300k on the "rare care" loot crate. ..........wound up getting a car I already own. THANKS. But at least I was able to sell that card back for 97,500!

Im done for tonight. Will start tackling the 2nd tier tomorrow.

I did one race with the $80,000 trophy truck, thought it was bullshit, and then bought the $33,000 Raptor that drives just fine.

Not even having driven the Raptor I would recommend that anyone else who has yet to do this series

I mean it was KINDA fun, but good lord do you have to work for it. Still, when you get that delicate ballet of steering input and throttle input just right, you just felt like you were gliding thru the turn on a cloud. Then you hit some bump in the road, it upsets the whole truck and suddenly you're facing the other way wondering why your rear tires are yellow.

After failing miserably in the Polaris, I tuned it like a normal car with stiffer springs and damping and all those shitty characteristics went away. Can power on mid corner and the nose wonít lift, and braking is more controlled. I actually kind of like the way it drive now.

My name is at or near the top of many of those kinds of leaderboards The new homologation system definitely does divide the leaderboards up.

And as for the RZR, you can actually drop a V8 in it One day i'll try that.

Mine is a high R class. Make sure you gear it out. 700+hp with a 700 gear maxes out at 115 real quick

Sorry First time on the desktop site in a while so missed the notification.

If there's interest, I think it would be fun to get people together for an F1/Nascar qualifying-like session where we're all on the same track at the same time but trying to get the fastest lap of the session, so not necessarily wheel to wheel racing. I guess that's kind of like time attack more than qualifying.

So we pick a class or car, pick a track and just blast out laps as a group trying to be the fastest.
