Face it the A, B, C classes are dead and rivals are worthless without time-attack but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun with FM7. We currently have a Historic Road Racing “Homologation” Hopper with leader boards that are buried in Free Play or accessible through the multiplayer lobby. What we need are good cars and a populated LB, so……
Cross posted in both the Tuner’s Garage and Racer’s Lounge is a challenge:
Historic Road Racing Homologation Hot Lap Challenge & Tuning Comp at Road Atlanta
- Tuners get one week to submit a homologation build/turn
- Drivers get one week to attack the LB and dominate the lobbies with said tunes
Driver – Fastest on the LB with one of the supplied tunes (clean lap)
Tuner – Owner of the fastest tune.
Track = Road Atlanta Full (Why? Why Not? In previous Forza’s both power and grip builds have been competitive so it should be interesting)
Eligible Cars= Historic Road Racing in accordance with homologation restrictions (i.e. eligible for multiplayer)
Only one entry per tuner on a first-come first-serve reservation with a maximum of two entries per car. Tunes must be shared and posted in the Tuner’s Garage thread by midnight GMT 13 Oct with “RA-HLC” in the description.
Times must be posted to the Racers Lounge thread and viewable on the LB with one of the supplied competition tunes by midnight GMT 20 Oct.
Prizes = PRIDE
(at least until someone sponsors the event)
Tuners – along with your tune submission you are required to post at least one sentence describing something you learned about tuning and/or building your submission.
Drivers – along with your time submission you are required to post a review of the tune. Reviews and times of any and all tunes that you tried are also encouraged.
Tuners - Reserve your favorite car before someone else does…. GREEN… GREEN… GREEN,
