I featured a couple liveries that have been submitted here as well.

See you all in the event when it reopens tomorrow.

John I left you a little challenge on the leaderboards - a 2.27 lap time. Should be challenging but also obtainable.

If you beat it I may just have to run 2 laps next time ;)
I blame the ants.

Hi Jogniwanna
The Livery for September Bounty Hunter will be finished either today or tomorrow on the Chevy 1969 Nova, I'll send you an Xbox live message when it's done, thanks again for this event and credit gift even though I lost it again :)

So the rivals event is there for you? It doesn't appear in the rivals section for some of us.

EDIT - Well it's not the end of Tuesday yet here, so I'll wait it out a little more before wondering if something is wrong.

As I wasn't on XBL Friday, I appear to have missed it as the bounty hunter rivals event wasn't there on Saturday and everyday I checked since, including the last check at around 15 mins ago :(
Maybe it'll be there in the morning (hopes) !

I'm sorry to say that at this point we do not have a time that the September Bounty Hunter event will be reinstated. It was to be today, but we are still investigating what caused our server problems and cannot reinstate the event until a solution is found.

Please bear with me while we wait for the September Community Bounty to come back.

I will post as soon as I know anything else.

Please spread the word to assuage people's frustration.

It's okay Johniwanna, no Problem, no rush , actually it's good for me, so that I can focus on making the Livery, please when it's ready give everybody the name of the Bounty Hunter event, and in which section it will be available, I guess in the Monthly Rivals, it's good to have some directions especially for to the New comers who joined the Forza World..

Nice time DOSE ROCKS, and, thanks for the recommendation. Many other tunes under my GT available for the event (6 cars and 2-3 more to come, grip-speed-beast tunes).

I like the Circuit but I did wish if Johniwanna did choose any car other than the Muscle car,s, with those technical curves I need a good handling car to keep at least my laps clean, after a few attempts I did a clean 1:37,194, I can improve by a few seconds , but not enough to beat The target time. Good racing Johniwanna !

Not sure what tune you are using! If you have not checked them out already....you might want to try some of the "grip" tunes that I shared for this event. Even the "speed" tunes are very drivable, I set them up that way with such purpose. Would not recommend the "beast" tunes though. Good luck

Just set a 1:25.8 after about 10 laps in a self-tuned GTO. Aiming to get into the 1:24 range on my tune before I try downloading a tune from somebody who actually knows how to :p

@RelaxedPRkid I'm using your tune, it feels great and did enjoy it very much, I can have consistent clean laps now, the car itself just feels heavy and have understeer, I'll try different cars and see if I have a chance, my set up is
car : Chevy Nova SS 1969
ABS: on
TCS : off
Steering : automatic

Thanks for the input! And tip !

You'll certainly shave some time off by using Manual w/Clutch. Not sure about the heavy description! Which tune (grip1, grip2, speed or beast) are you seeing this (along with the described understeering)? Thanks!

@RelaxedPRkid I'm using Johniwanna Beast, not grip 1-2 or Speed, you are right the automatic transmission slow me down , I lose momentum, and gears fall down dramatically especially at the hill and tight corners, this is my weakness, I still didn't manage to learn manual or manual with clutch.

Did you say steering automatic? If that is correct try switching it to normal.
I blame the ants.

@SatNiteEduardo, sorry for the misunderstanding, I meant Shifting : automatic, the steering I have it in normal indeed, I did write the info from memory, I had corrected the mistake after checking the console.
