      what do you mean by that? the uproar over the VIP cars becoming available? so you think all cars will be available to everyone? just trying to clarify.

      i think for forza 4, i might actually buy a fanatec wheel. definitely not that one though. i'd most likely buy the cross platform one that works for PS3/PC/Xbox, just for the future. i have a G25 that is collecting dust in my room, and i've only used it a handful of times. amazon has a G25 new for $700 and used for $450. definitely won't be selling mine for that much.

      FM.net just got revamped for FM4. Looks good.


      I was talking about the uproar from FM3 and the content being available when it was sold as being limited to the early birds. I didnt get pre-order or go VIP for FM3 and still was able to get ahold of most of the cars offered.( even the stig pack) Im glad I didnt get the VIP thinking Id have rare cars. The VIP guys really felt cheated. I have a feeling they might actually keep them limited to the first run of the game this time. On the other hand it would be hard to show off that car if other racers didnt have that car available so they get the black jetta on screen instead of the Tesla. Who am I kidding...they will throw it into a pack 3 months down the line.

      exact same thing i am thinking, and exact same status as my g25...collecting dust. what a waste...thank god for F1 2011.

      i will definitely buy some type of wheel for FM4

      I was about to post Fanatec's supposed new wheel for FM4.

      Since I was beaten to the punch... here's MadCatz's supposed new 360 wheel as well


      Licensed Xbox 360® Racing Wheel
      Features powerful Force Feedback and Dual Vibration Motors
      Being launched under the companies Mad Catz® casual gaming brand
      Metal chassis provides durability and realistic appearance
      Newly designed stick shift allows for left or right handed play
      PC connection allows for future Firmware updates
      Complete with pedal set, lap mount and desk clamp
      Since I'm not confident in madcrapz to make a quality wheel... I want to know more about Fanatec's new wheel.

      MS's Ushaped dildo w/buttons is blasphemy though...

      After reading a little more on the data transfer, one of the staff said:

      "Consider the import like a reward for those dedicated Forza 3 players, you will get gift cars added to your garage and credits (based on your career level in FM3). Plus all that time in the livery editor will not be wasted as you will be able to import your layer groups into Forza Motorsport 4."


      So what Im reading here is that just the layer groups will transfer, not the complete paints for cars. Thats good news. I was thinking that the Sfront would be flooded with all the same paint jobs trying to rake in cash right off the bat. So you will still have to paint the car, just more decals to start with.

      nice 24-minute video from E3 with lots of great info. i haven't finished watching it yet, but when you level up, there is a group of cars for you choose from instead of everyone getting the same cars at the same levels. pretty cool.

      I just saw the video. Has me stoked for sure! A lot of new stuff I might like, a lot that changed my stance a bit but it added way too many questions. DG says 12 cars, 16 cars and then says the most he passed was 19 cars.. how many can we race?! Subjective to track you are on?

      Road Atlanta looks improved too.

      yeah the way i understood it was, that some races would have 4, 8, 12, and 16 cars, depending on the event and cars. but that Road Atlanta example was supposed to be a track day with a lot of cars, so there was an "unlimited" amount of cars to pass on the track. the standing start might of thrown that off though.

      I was hesitant to buy FM4 but that video is drawing me in. Car clubs, more cars on the track and that new "matchmaking" mode all interest me.

      Now I was making dinner at the time I watched the clip but I don't remember anything said about the driving model. It would be nice to hear if they've improved anything on the physics side.

      I wonder what info they're not releasing now... I hope there are weather effects.

      weather would be incredible, but i can settle for dynamic timing if it's going to be one or the other.

      also saw some info about them teaming up with Pirelli to offer tire data to recreate more realistic physics and handling.

      this looks incredible so far. will pre-order as i did with FM3 VIP just for the heck of it.

      the car clubs has me really excited because i suck at tuning and painting but have friends that are great at it.

      I just hope they have a online mode where its like a track day and you can join at any point in the session, like it starts you in the pits and you merge into traffic. I hate trying to join a game and having to wait 10 minutes to do anything.

      That would be awesome but all the online retards would just crash into you. They would need to make passing through cars transparent.

      iRacing has a similar idea and I like it. You can spectate a race then, if you want, jump in with an invisible car... so if you screw up there's no harm. I've used it to follow a fast driver and learn lines.

      They could do that or have a system that will kick you if you have more than say 2 hard impacts with another driver.

      Fanatec CSR Elite wheel in action at the E3


      many info of CSR and CSR elite can be found in here...
      http://www.virtualr.net/fanatec-forz...els-announced/

      CSR Features
      - Improved force feedback electronics and mechanics make the wheel stronger and faster
      - Metal CSR shifter set and large metal paddle shifters make shifting gears easier than ever
      - Lightweight aluminum wheel rim with Alcantara inserts allow faster, more responsive turns

      CSR-Elite Features
      - Wheel base fully made of metal with carbon fiber and Alcantara wheel rim
      - DirectSensor™ technology with sensor mounted directly on the steering axis. This avoids all the interference and performance loss you get from the belt/gear drive found on traditional motor-mounted sensor systems
      - Dual force feedback motors with 120Watt (silent big fan cooling) and very low cogging force to avoid “notchy” feeling
      All new products will be available later this year, Fanatec estimates a price range of 320€ for a CSR wheel & pedal combination while the elite models will go for around 700 Euros max. More detailed specs will be available later as Fanatec is still busy putting the finishing development touches on these impressive units.

      from left to right: MadCatz, CSR and CSR elite (notice the different pedals)

      people always complaint no good wheels for Forza (xbox360), now you have something that you can't afford!!

      I had the pleasure of playing FM4 at E3 and all I can say is WOW!!!!!! It is an awesome game and the graphics are finally up to par with Gran Tursimo. Holy moly its a pretty game, and it plays GREAT!! All of you will not be disappointed that is for sure.

      Here is a picture I took at E3

      Lucky bastard! How was Fanatec's new CSR wheel?

      And anyone know the real difference between CSR and CSR Elite? Thomas from Fanatec was quoted saying both wheels, depending on options (like what pedals, shifter, etc) would range between 320-700

      edit: oops.. saw the post above evos

      more info for those Fanatec wheel, pedals, clubsport shifter, handbrake... and take notice that "F1 style wheel with quick release"!!!



      Regular CSR is around $320. The elite wheel is around $500. So $700 should be the elite wheel with shifter and pedals.

      with these fanatec wheel, pedal, shifter, Forza 4, F1 2011... i am going to bankrupt.
