My friend got these units, HP, NM and KG, and I was wondering how to do that since it's the units that I really want? I'm stuck between KW, NM and KG and HP, LB-FT and LB.

Thanks.

Somehow he's got this on his game:

I dont think you can. Hope they could add to allow HP and NM to use same time.

Isn't it the language thing? I heard if you change language from Polish to English you can get those units. That's incredibly dumb that it never got fixed after all these years. We should be able to choose the exact units we want.

So where I come from, and many other places. Its common to measure a cars power by both hp and Newtonmeter. I can only find these two measurements separate. So it's really annoying having to change the settings every time I fix a car.

Any way to have hp and NM present at once? Seems very stupid not to.

What he's asking for is a setting where power is measured in HP while the torque is measured in N/m rather than ft/lb.

What he's been doing is flipping Settings from English units to metric units just to wrap his head around his tunes.

Yes. I thought that was pretty obvious. Thanks.
Why would I want to see kW and hp at the same time?
In Norway we show hp and NM. Not kW and NM or hp and lb/ft. Where is the option to show hp and NM?

we should be able to choose each scale because i too have a problem were in my country we use HP but speed in kmh and there is no option for that

I see, I thought they could be individually set, apparently not. They should make them all separate instead of one.

I've got it guys.
If you want HP N-m kg mph, do the following....
Recently I reinstall my Windows and decided to make it UK English. And it worked for Forza. All you have to do is to install UK EN laguage package. Go do it.

Getting hp, N·m, kg, psi, MPH as the Units

"Home" -> "Settings":
  • "Language Select": "English UK".
  • "HUD and Gameplay" -> "Units": "Default".

Changing the system language is not necessary.



Quicker way of setting the game's language:
(without accessing through the game's UI)

Yeah how come when you set the units to English it shows lbs/ft and lbs.

Back me up here fellow britishmen but I always us HP, NM, KGS, Metres and Miles.

You should be able to customise this to show what you want.

British here but I am used to lb/ft rather than nm. I agree we should be able to customise it. I particularly dislike the temperature being shown in fahrenheit. But everything is Americanised now.

good god.

I am so happy my xb1 version is showing me the proper SI units: kw, km, nm, kgf/mm, cm, etc. I'd prefer temp in Kelvin over Celsius, but what can you do :P

Is there a unit setting for having speed in metric but the rest in freedom units? I've tried all the unit setting but non seem to have it. I live in Canada if that helps.

In NZ we use metric for most things, but PSI for tyre pressure. I'm constantly having to switch units settings back and forth between English and Metric when tuning!
