And people still wonder why me and other players are stacking Forzathon Points. Look at this shop, just useless lol

Raise the prices if needed if it's a special car, but put something rare and different in the shop, please. It's been 2 months since I last bought something, and I'm not even exaggerating.

12K FP and counting...

Edit: This is not the worst cars I've seen in the shop, but every week all players hope to see something nice coming and get frustrated. Maybe new players may enjoy getting the Lambo or something, but they'll spend all their points in a car they can get with Skill points through the Lambo Miura (here's my advice). At least they don't have to worry that much, next week nothing interesting will come up anyway.

The GTR-LM is also one of the only Wheel Spin exclusives that are EASILY found in the AH. There is a huge abundance of them and can be purchased for about 1.5M CR. Save the FP. Go get it from the AH....

Did the Goliath for the speed skills, and at the same time passed 250k skillpoints. Ended up on the Drift Zone almost straight away.

Certainly explains why players like us constantly succeed and they come in here complaining. Silly people going in ILL-prepared
Forza junkie since FM2. Horizons are the break I need from the track.

Ah yes, playground games! I love when one teammate just leaves when the opposite team score 1(one)!!!!! flag and then everyone leaves because we have less players.

Please for the love of god add a penalization for leaving! These last couple of playground games I won because the other team simply quit or I lose because my teammates leave

When people start leaving, it's best to bail. I only bail when a couple leave, otherwise you're just banging your head.

Also gotta love it when PGG seemingly stalls between matches and even people 9n winning team rage quit and lose out on the win. Pays to be patient.

I've seen advice circulating around here and Reddit saying that it's easier in a stock car because you're given a Drivitar with the same PI as you but I'd say that's terrible advice. You're far better off finding a Trial tune.

The AI can't tune, it seems like they just use auto upgrade and rely on rubber banding. And even then a good tune will still wipe the floor with them.

Respectfully, thats terrible advice. If you're a great, good or decent driver, you should be able to beat the AI if you dont make too many mistakes. Trying to handicap the PI at a low number wont help much, if at all

To be more accurate, it used to be true. But the AI doesn't scale down like that anymore. It seems to have a mid-class baseline now, somewhere around the 40s or 50s.

But honestly, you might as well tune toward the top of the class in any case. Mid to high 90s at least. They seem to be building these championships around top of class PI lately, so you don't want to go in under-powered.

Extremely underrated car. The handling and grip is awesome. I dug mine out for this week's seasonal championship, the S1 900 Japanese cars one.

I'm not sure what to use my 18k FP on. Outside of a couple articles of clothing and a Disco Rubber Chicken suit, I'm not missing anything.

They should put the HS cars in there, or maybe even the PO cars.
