I don't plan to buy/rent & play Forza 4 anytime soon but this thread has had me hooked onto it. I found a Forza 4 setup in a bestbuy (Cambridge, MA) with the new wireless-hold-in-air-with-your-hands wheel and played a couple of laps and it was fun+easy. The wheel felt really responsive and better than using controller. This is obviously coming from someone who has never used *any* wheel before so probably doesn't count much but I feel that thing is good for someone like me (amateur, casual etc.) at least.

I was never good at simulators and hence never had any desire to pick up Forza but recently I spent some time on Forza 3 and I loved it. I will pick this up as soon as "life" allows it. :)

I tried to embed that but it wouldn't let me.... I added the "media" tags but it just showed as a link.

The pack looks great, even though some of the cars aren't really to my taste. I can see the Chevy Bel Air being a blast to drive, though. It might be one of the few Chevrolet cars I can say I like for the design. I remember it being one of my favourite cars in Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition, but I'm curious how it is going to handle in a more realistic game environment.

I'm not a huge fan of Le Mans cars (likely for the same reason I'm not a huge F1 fan: the cars aren't production models or based on them), but the R15++ could be fun to try out. I wonder if they'll put it into R1 class, like the 'normal' R15, or will it just immediately appear in X Class? If it does then it'll be the only stock X Class car in the game. I want the GMC Typhoon to be good when upgraded.

On an unrelated note, how far can you upgrade the Hummer H1? I returned the copy of the game I rented on Tuesday so I can't really discover for myself. I'm hoping it would turn into some kind of beast after upgrading, but I am fairly sure that wouldn't happen. A friend crashed in an H1 into my Prius after using the entire straight on the Old Le Mans as a run-up, and the H1 came off worse than the Prius, somehow. I'd laugh if it got into A Class. If anyone has an H1 and Hummer Affinity 4, then could they check it? The H1 would be hilarious to race against Ferraris and actual sports cars.

You know when you go into your clubs garage and scroll through the cars? Some of the cars in my clubs shared garage come up as black squares, so the only way I know which ones i'm on are to select them and go to the lobby. Any one else have this problem?

Yep, I was having the same problem. It seems to have fixed itself now.

Finally reached driver level 50. Next on my list is to save up for the Sesto Elemente.

How much is the Sesto Elemente? I was in a race against it with the Zonda R, and it seemed to be slightly better than my Zonda because it would occasionally pull ahead before I'd catch up again. It's a great looking car, even when it was only really designed for racing.

I got this game on launch day, and I just played for the first time this weekend, and it is great so far.

IMO the Zonda is the better car. Also IMO, the Reventon with a weight reduction (the final stage drops a ridiculous 1000 lbs or something) is better than the Sesto.

The Sesto is 2.5 million credits, too.

Hmm, I may get one of my club members to give the reventon a go.

Well try them both. :laugh:

For it's power to weight ratio, I found the Sesto lacking, but I will say that I've only tried it stock in rivals mode. Could be better topped out at R3.

Oh i'm definately gonna get the Sesto for sure, but 2.5 mill isn't exactly chump change, add on that the upgrades. So i'll sort that car out for my club and i'll get one of my other club members to sort out the Reventon. And if the Sesto turns out to be rubbish i'll be very very p****d off! :laugh:

Have to say i'm absolutely loving Forza 4. After the utter disappointment of GT5 i'm so glad we have such an awesome driving game which has some real longevity. Only managed 1.47 around the TG track so far though :(

Anyone know if the Ariel Atom is in the game? Absolutely dying to try that car out but haven't seen it so far.

Not seen it anywhere, no Ariel manufacturer in the Buy Cars section so I doubt it. Perhaps a DLC later. They seem to love trying to sell you extra cars.

Great game apart from that.

There's no open wheeled cars in the game at all. People have various explanations as to why, either they didn't want to pay for licenses, or they couldn't do a realistic damage model.

So... maybe it will be in there.

The atom was in the third, but so far ot in F4 unfortunately.

I love the small nimble cars, but I suck at driving the cause I suck cornering and thus keeping speed in corners which ishowtheycan compete with far faster cars. Indeed big huge heavy cars that still handle good, and heavy enough to bully myself through :p

So for anyone who's interested in trying out the Hummer maxed out, I've added it to the Club Garage. it's a mid A class car which handle's as you'd expect!

Also did some nice visual alterations to it, just to give it the right 'pussywagon' look. :laugh:
