      I dig that GTO pic. Good front end for that kind of shot.

      Finally got on tonight after too many days being busy with work. Got caught up on all the new rivals for this month.

      I love stock only races.




      I feel like drifting is the best use of this car. A class




      Needs a serious tune, but still put down a decent time.




      Not a car I would usually try, but was a lot of fun and not too tail happy in stock form.




      260mph? Yes please.


      Crazy ai losing control.




      Love the 3 wing positions.

      Nice batch of rivals pics rschlagbaum. I ended up using an El Camino I built for the 1/2 mile drag on that drift event. The TVR Speed 12 T10 gifted out a while ago was awesome for the Silverstone autocross. I'm gonna have to spend some more time on the speed ring traffic event, that's the first time they've ever used the benchmark tracks for rivals.

      I've been trying to improve my time on the GTS-R Road Atlanta event and am pretty much stuck.

      It's a pretty cool car, love the howl of the engine and tranny. As usual, I really disliked the stock dif with Lamborghini's AWD. I'm sure it would be fun as heck RWD.

      I took two pics on my test drive of it but didn't particularly like either. I've been having a hard time producing decent pictures in FM4.

      Having problems... here's some links I've posted over at FM.net and a video I made about a week back, helping people understand photography. Hope to get some more videos up here in the next couple of weeks.

      It's my team paint. We all thought it needed to be colored and decorated for this month. So, I went a little bit more overboard than others.

      The ring has to be one of the least flattering lighting to shot on. Black and white photos seem to work best there.

      I made it rwd. Frees up 50+pi. Still pretty stable with 800+HP.

      Like I said. Black and white can look good there usually. Color shots just dont "pop" for the most part. Although that washed out looks gives a nice effect.

      Nice pic as well.

      Here is some more tuning from tonight.

      Shed car in A. Just piling on some horsepower, sways, and tires did a lot for this car. I didn't expect it to drive as nice as it did.








      Obsolete Racer in S. Not super competitive. Had to keep the stock tires to give the car enough oomph to keep up with the big boys. Still launches like a champ though.

      I dropped the rs200 into A class. It does a lot better there.

      Going to try that now before bed, I did the RS to S class, 2WD and sport tires. Gave it the oomph to keep up but it's still insane to drive.

      I haven't driven that TVR or the RS200 in FM4 yet.

      Start the Saleen R3 800 series the other day. Built up an S7 road car. My goodness it's fast, and my goodness does it ever understeer.

      As a side note, what photo format and hosting do most of you use? Wolfs last photo looks much crisper than mine do, and I feel like a lot of folks pics seem higher quality. Is the better quality a result of people using big shot? Or do different hosting sites have different qualities of storage?

      I am on photobucket. I virtually never do big shots since I can have so few up on the fm4 server at once.

      photobucket butchers the photos in my opinion.

      i created a flickr account just for my forza photos, and they always come out great - as great as i can make them with my limited skill. so, i definitely recommend flickr.

      All of the really crisp photos are hosted on Flickr. They use some cheater sharpening / colour / contrast filter that they put on all your pictures when you upload so they end up looking better than the original file (the effect is more pronounced the smaller the res of pic you post on a forum/website).

      I don't agree with the practice which is why I never host any actual photos I've taken (and why I won't pay them $30/year for a premium account), I just use it for hosting Forza pics.

      [EDIT] Typed too slow.

      For reference:

      Photobucket quality of non-bigshot


      Flickr quality of non-bigshot


      So far, photobucket is easier to use, but flickr looks to have better quality.
