Ooooo....a little corvette drift action coming our way.

Of course, this could mean no Shelby 1000 for me but the corvette is VERY nice as well.

Thanks again Max.

To do away with any sort of suspense, that is Formula Drift racer Matt Field's 1000hp C6 Corvette. So, that's likely the answer to the 1000-related clue.

Edit: Didn't see it was already confirmed in the Torben Tuesday thread, so consider this a moot point. Oh well.

I remember hearing the possibility of an auto-generated driving line for custom-made tracks. I hope that is in this update, if it's not in already and I wasn't aware. I'm getting the itch to test drive a bunch of cars around a custom track, and it's a little hard for me to find the ideal line in an S2-class car when it was made with a B-class car.

I looked back at the video for what we have to do to get the new cars, and it's:

2013 Formula Drift #777 Chevrolet Corvette - 50% week
2018 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S - 50% week

2007 Formula Drift #117 599 GTB Fiorano - single event
1992 Toyota Supra 2.0 GT Twin Turbo [RHD] - single event

2018 Ferrari Portofino - photograph 100 cars in Horizon Promo
1995 Porsche Carrera 2 by Gunther Werks - photograph 200 cars in Horizon Promo

So those last two take mind-numbing chore-based gameplay to a new level.

Take some pics at the start of a race each championship and that's an easy 5 (or more) cars.
I went through most of the carlist in FH3 in only a couple days blueprinting races with all different car groups.

That's how I'm planning on tackling it too. You'll probably get a lot of cars naturally going through the Playlist events since they utilize a lot of different classes and vehicle types.

So some good cars removed from E! because some voters have bad taste or skill, no replacements added, no fix for the horrid giant text blocking your view forever, but at least the feed of other racers will stay visible longer that nobody cares about.. and worst of all no fix for the car reset problem? good work.

Great work with the new cars that are being added, but please focus on fixing the bugs in online multiplayer...

TA ranked has been broken for five months now and points don't count if only one player on either team leaves. Convoy matchmaking has been broken since the game released.... And you can still lose points even if you win ranked TA which makes no sense whatsoever. And as PiratePenguin11 pointed out, reset function is broken, 9 out of 10 times I get reset just as I'm about to land on all four wheels, it makes no sense whatsoever - and this was very recently introduced to the game, it was fine ~2 months ago so devs should be able to track it down and see which update and change broke it.

Apparently, it didn't take too long for people to earn the Eliminator prizes. A weekend was enough. What else can we do to milk that extra bit of gameplay? Hmmm...

I know people who say FH4 was made as a photography simulator, because bugs in racing aren't fixed. I guess it's the update's target.

Not gonna work this time. Modern Muscle and Vans & Utility give you a Ford spec series.

It's a nice idea regardless.

I'm not even bothering with new updates anymore. Basic bugs* are still left unfixed and they add yet another grindfest, come the bleep on! What is going on with this game, out of ideas?

*Peel P50 squeezing between train wagons on the railyard team games and so being unreachable for other players, breaking the event
*Broken Unbeatable AI in buggies class with the Maverick / Polaris being way too fast
*Props are too heavy, giving unfair catch-up advantage because the first prace will have to plow through these objects first and get slowed down. My A800 Exocet often got slowed down do 50km/h just by hitting 2 consecutive wooden fences.
*If an opponent hits a prop like a lamppost and you get hit by it mid air, it gives a massive slowdown and lighter cars get thrown off course. Encountered it many times while racing in Edinburgh.
*Going through water is entirely unpredictable, some cars get a massive speed penalty and some don't, even if they seem to have similar ride height
*Game balance is way off in online racing modes, every class except for S2 has it's own OP car that's META for racing, the higher the rank, the less variation in cars you'll see, everyone is driving the same car - Nova FE, TZ2, 33 Stradale, Shelby Daytona, Viper ACR, Hoonigan RS200

Just a few of many, many examples. Absolute shame.

Many cars removed from the Eliminator, no clue why they aren't replaced with something else. They should've removed Ferrari and Lambo's rather than offroad cars. The Eliminator is mostly a cross country / offroad mode - just give me the CJ5 or a Defender on lower tiers!
They should've removed the MK4 Supra that is RWD in Eliminator and doesn't stand a chance against the Tier 1 Mini in most cases unless the race is strictly on tarmac, which rarely happens in the Eliminator.
