Is the demo car stock or it's someone's personal car with some toys added to it? What does it run at the track?
I probably could have picked a better camera angle for that Muller/Rossi thread-pass but this one decently shows how close to a massive crash this could have ended in.
Hah, nice pass.
Demo car is stock, but every few years they chuck an exhaust on the demo 'Vette. Stock GS's run mid 12's at 115 or so. Quick enough.
This was my favorite demo:

What is everyones favorite track? I really dig Road America right now, with A class cars
I need some input on not using ABS as well, it was my only aid and I just turned it off for the first time. I kept my braking at the same pressure level, 95%, and I still get occassional lockup with what feels like only 50-70% trigger. I've read that some guys actually raise their pressure to over 100%, so this confuses me, wouldn't you guys be locking brakes like crazy?
I'm trying to max out my garage (550 cars I think). I could use a cool mill, I'll put up a white MKIII GTI with black, red and yellow accents on the AH (d1rte30)

I find that I lock up the tires anytime I use any of my older controllers. For some reason the newer pads with the rotating d-pad seem to have more precise triggers and I never really run into any problems. No idea what to suggest for in game settings though, I never tune anything.
Sounds good, put it up today if you can, I should be on at some point this evening to pick it up.
wolfsburgraz = the man
I just went to WorstSpend and got a new controller, it does feel more precise right off the bat. I paid the $10 Premium fee for a chrome controller since they were out of standard black, oh well. After a few races I notice the brake trigger takes more throw to get the same response as my old unit, now I see why guys are upping their brake pressure

I would really appreciate some sort of nice handling non-understeering A600 Honda. Honda is my highest affinity, I think it's over 20. I have Hondas for all of my races up to S class. I have:
F: RWD EF hatch
E: Del Sol (RWD conversion)
D: Civic Si (EM1)
C: CRX SiR
B: Civic Type R (EK9) [My favorite. Cuts through corners like a knife through butter.]
A: NSX Type R(nothing FWD, can't tune a good one without crazy HP to keep up with the Vettes and whatnot)
S: S2000, No S class FWD works well.
My other closest affinity is Nissan or Toyota - I use Silvias, skylines, and Supras to drift.
$505,205 here, that seems a bit low considering the run-ins I had through World Tour and running no rewind and full damage since day 1. Then again, I don't race online in public lobbies (don't know if that number gets accumulated into that total).
I do know that if they counted damage in Rivals and especially track day events, I'd be into the millions.
Thanks for the kind words guys but you're blowing it out of proportion. It just shows I play the game entirely too much instead of being more productive with my spare time. Still, I'm glad to help.
Absolutely LOVING the Shelby Series 1 in A600. I bought and built one for the modern Shelby series since the only other eligible cars were the '07 and '10 GT500's and I've already maxed my Ford affinity. Put down some pretty nice times on the few tracks in the series.
Still loving the #4 ZR1 Corvette as well in R3 800. Drives so nice.
Hurt, played with the ITR for a bit last night and I think I have a working tune for you.
It's on my Storefront, but let me know your GT and I'll gift it to you.
I was pretty worried it would just be too much to handle, and I had to tune out a bit of my usual oversteer (not a typo)
but I think it's pretty balanced now. You just have to be judicial with the throttle coming out of tight corners, but that's pretty realistic.
BTW, it handles amazingly and although you may not win any drags against the 'Vettes, you will walk right around them in the twisties.
Once in the lead, you will have no problem outpacing them and staying there.

I really enjoyed Test Drive Unlimited and Burnout Paradise so it's likely I'll enjoy Horizon too. TDU was great but the awful way the cars handled brought it down a few notches. FM4's physics engine in an open world racer really appeals to me.
That being said, gosh that's a lame pre-order bonus car. I can count on one hand the number of times I've driven a (newer) Challenger in the game on one hand, and that includes the neat but ridiculous Rampage one.
I'm going to wait to see what bonuses which Canadian retailers offer what cars before I decide where to go. In the end you'll probably be able to buy them all as a pack anyway like you could in FM4.
I guess I could just copy and paste this comment into the Horizon thread as well since it's completely relevant to everything.
Thought I would share my updates.

Gamestop/EB in Canada have the Merc SLS as the preorder bonus for Horizon, none of the other main vendors have revealed theirs (that I can find anyway). I'd prefer the 458 Italia but I'd rather preorder sooner than later. Note sure if LCE is worth $79.99 to me.
Quick update from me too, been trying to hammer through career mode so I can get back to a stack of games I've been ignoring while playing Forza.
Affinity is mixing up as I'm playing different events and driving the cars I want to drive rather than focusing on only getting Ford to 50.
1. Ford - 50 - Ford GT
2. Chevrolet - 21 - Corvette C6 Z06 (another 1.5 hours of driving the #4 ZR1 to unseat this car)
3. Audi - 18 - #2 R18 TDI
4. BMW - 16 - Z4 '11
5. Porsche - 16 - #54 GT3 Cup
6. Ferrari - 15 - 250 TR
7. Mazda - 15 - MX-5 Gen 1 (haven't used Mazda for a while so its gradually falling)
8. Nissan - 15 - #12 GT-R '10
9. Dodge - 15 - Viper '08 (same as Mazda)
0. Lamborghini - 14 - Gallardo LP570
