First, Chevy, “like a rock.”

Second, how the heck are you supposed to get these things from roofs? I’ve come across a few now I don’t know how to get to.

I thought, what better way to put 20 miles on my LFA to complete the weekly challenge for this car than to run Bru Bru 's tour again :ROFLMAO:







Did about 23 seconds better than my viper on this run

And as a bonus, this thing does sound absolutely glorious screaming thru tunnels


Nice work on the loop!

Still no luck on the Celica, but I did manage to scoop up 2 more SVJ's. one for 275k, and one for 2 mil. Both instant 20 mil sales and another 34 mil into my bank account :ROFLMAO:

I’m confused. You’re finding cars cheap on the auction house and then selling them for more on the auction house?

The auction house is like real life with idiots overpaying like crazy for cars.

You're not confused. Thats exactly right. :LOL: The cars that are in the craziest demand right now, like the SVJ, there are some individuals who will dump them for the lowest buyout price, which right now is 275k. So if you're lucky enough to snag one (its not easy) you can relist it for the max buyout that all the morons are paying right now. I dont know why they list them for nothing, maybe they don't need the money, maybe they don't know what they have, or maybe they just wanna watch the world burn.

I really wish the auction house had a visual timer to when I can list cars again.

Holy shit. I was actually able to complete the trial in 2 races, on my first try. I actually had teammates that were worth a shit. Well, most of them. You still always get one or 2 dipshits that enter the championship in bone stock cars and just become boat anchors. In my practice runs I couldn't get any better than like 5th or 6th in the first 2 races against unbeatable drivatars so I was a little worried, but in the actual races, I think first race i came in 3rd or 2nd, and the 2nd race I also came in 2nd. There's always 1 drivatar that fucking ROCKETS ahead and you just have no shot at catching him.

But at least thats done. Should ensure I'll have no problems obtaining the Celica now.

Well I just panic sold all my 575M's, they were rapidly declining in value, so I wanted to make sure I at least got my money back on them. Dumped them all for 2 mil a piece. And most were snatched up by the same guy :LOL: Maybe he knows something I dont....but more power to him. At 2 mil I at least made 1.7 mil on each car, which after the 1.3 I spent to buy them means I made about 460k on each car. NOT quite what i was hoping for, but oh well. Watch them bottom out, and then skyrocket in the next day or 2. That would just be my luck. Good thing I only bought 5 of them.

This game seems more like a dealership simulator than an arcade racer.

Used this guy to win the S1 900 GT Car Championship.

Bought it on the AH for 106k (the lowest buyout price I saw at the time) And then put about 104k worth of mods into it :LOL: Including AWD, and a TT V10

Getting sick of this game. Super buggy on PC. Animations are all messed up between cut scenes. Im going to reinstall and see how it runs. Still shitty FPS compared to FH4.

I’m still trying to find the last few bath finds.

Think I found one, but driving up to it nothing happened. Was at the long as runway with the mega jump at the end.

Think I have 3 or 4 left to find.

you have to be notified that theres one to be found, then a big purple circle appears around the area for you to explore. unfortunately you cant just find one "early"

So you eagle-eyed players might notice something missing on the left side of the road. I was trying for a speed camera run and just clipped a car coming over the hill. Took out the camera while sliding sideways about 160mph. I expect a fine from the Federale's sometime soon.
