I understand that. The idea behind voting for car group first was that I didn't want to write down all of options in one poll - too many options to vote for 5 people.
The second poll would be:
For Miata --> a) B700 RWD b) A800 RWD c) A800 RWD racng tires d) A800
For French --> a) B700 b) A800 c) A800 racing tires
For 4-door --> a) B700 b) A800 c) S1900
or something like that ;)

turtleCZ - We can try stock cars at some time. Everyone in the same car? Everyone in cars with same power/weight ratio?

Race 2 - I was getting some slowdown/speed up issues when we were racing next to each other which stopped when you dropped out. Race 3 - I missed a checkpoint because I was (a) laughing at Turtle’s flying Fiesta and (b) tried not to hit the back of Ziperr when he slowed down more than I would have done for a hairpin.

All good fun!

Yeah, sorry for not so clean racing racing but I have two problems. My car wasn't perfect and dirt is not my discipline and the second one is I use 1st person camera (not cockpit) and still don't know how to avoid every collision without mirrors (hope for mirrors in next Forza). I use back viewing sometimes and minimap for sure. For normal road racing I use clean racing lines so it's usually OK.


Never been rear view mirrors in hood/bumper in any Horizon. You and I are the only ones asking for one. I've begged them to zero response. The mirror in cockpit isn't really good either, depends on the car. Sometimes its like half a mirror. I would do this too but that is going to cause me problems. It's hard to know if someone is close enough to pass, you start looking around and you either miss a checkpoint or hit some stupid obstacle. Would love to do some A or lower ghost if anyone is interested. Can only find S1 and S2. Always 1 person in A class.

It's because of performance I guess. Sure, mirrors are necessary and like you write some cars are without them even in a cockpit view.

Exactly, it's not time to check everything around so I use minimap but it's not precise :D

I am open to everything so I can try A class ghost too.

LOL, I need to work but I am not in the mood right now.

Rivals are OK but too stressful :D It's too hard (depends on rivals for sure) I need something more relaxed.

No family here, that's the reason I play probably.

I don't want to learn anything right now rather spend some time until everything about virus will be OK. It will have big impact on many things.
