FORZA 3 drift/drag/shenanigans/to the max

Post  embers on Wed Oct 28, 2009 11:56 pm

FINALLY picked it up.

raced enough to build an n/a Corolla. fucking sickkk
now i have less than $1,000... lmao.

first impressions:
sights/sounds/feel = OMFGwtfBBQlolFTW
drifting with the new clutch system is gonna take a couple days to nail down.
(tend to e-brake without engaging the clutch lolz.)
Corolla is way under powered, so drifting it is hard anyway. but awesome.
pulled a 14.320 quarter mile with said Corolla. major slow lol.

having it on expert gives a 90% earnings increase... enough said right?
need to buckle down and earn some cash, then get some liveries done, so i can auction some shit.
besides the laundry list of drift cars i need. (RWD swaps for Subarus, and Skylines this time around hehe)

pics/vid tests to come later tonight.
Cool

so apparently i don't know anything about this game. i'm just gonna keep playing career cuz even though embers mentioned how much money i need to build a dragster, he didn't say what upgrades i should get LOL. so i started slappin on every race package i could get and i was out of money by the time i was done with brakes. Embarassed

that chevelle is sick!

the replay editor is interesting.
lots of camera choices. think skate 1 sort of.
pick a cam, 'car close' for example. then hit 'X' to cycle through the several angles for that cam.
there are tons of cams to choose from as well. close, far, replay, game, simple, advanced...
but no Free Cam. lmao!

just make sure that your car is upgraded and tuned to the upper end of the class. So that your hired driver can actually win, most of the time.

New Toys!
Officially my new favorite drift car in Forza:
'97 Skyline GTR VSPEC R33 soooooo smooth!




D1 Spec S15. Now totally paintable, Smile and awesome for an S class. Cool



Thanks to Bene having me tune one of these, i determined that i needed one, Very Happy
'08 Subaru STI Wagon




REAR WHEEL DRIVE or NO WHEEL DRIVE!

probably has a lot to do with the gearing. specifically the final drive. the computer driver waits too long to downshift, and smacks into shit. haha.

little drag car sesh...
Blackhawk in the Firebird, new school flames, Firebird logo on the hood.
Get Stoked in the Datsun 510 mini beast
Embers in the Firebird, old school flames on black.

when you're talking hire a driver, the car is what wins the races. having a lame set up will lose you the race for sure.

what difficulty do you have the race set at?
what class is your chevelle?
do you notice what gear the car is in, on the a long straight when you do hire a driver?


i've found the setting the final drive of the gears more towards acceleration really helps the AI driver.
even if it means being topped out in 5th or 6th halfway down the straightaways. this helps because it forces the AI driver to downshift a lot faster when slowing down for a corner, at the same time, the downshifting is also slowing the car down more quickly. the other benefit is that the AI driver is able to exit corners really quickly with the shorter gearing, allowing a gap to be opened up and pass if need be.

Hopefully that makes sense.


if i can catch you online, maybe we can work out a tune. Cool

when i do hire a driver, i always set it to medium difficulty, to ensure the win.
