@Peace Star looks like you will have to hit the track again my friend. I just ran a 2:27.702.

Oh yeah boy! Love letters sent to Diesel Blows and Bad River too. Helllooooooooo my friends!

I do believe I will find another half a second or so tonight as well. DagnoFear, you are next on my mailing list.

Woohoo!

Thanks to DTM Lionel87 for the tune, no wonder this guy is at #1 on the leaderboard.

Congratulations Johniwanna for improving your time to 2:27.702 , you just made it more challenging for others, and no chance for me, I didn't give up yet, see you in the track, maybe a miracle can happen. You never know.
also you did misspell the tuner Gamertag it's DTM lionel78. , you did switch the number at the end of his name.

Just had some runs in some of DTM lionel78's GTO tunes and got a 2:27.165. I know I can improve that as I lost some time over and down the hill.

Congrats on making it into the 27's John. See, that wasn't so hard, was it. I'm gonna try DTM's tune tomorrow and see if I can crack the 26's.

OK everyone my tune is up. First off let me say I had some help from a few people so I didn't do this all by my self. I did enjoy working with someone to get some insight to how forza 5 physics work.
OK another thing about me and the tune. I'm a wheel user. I have a TX wheel with clubsport V2 pedals. This is my settings in game for the wheel.

I used TC for this tune because for me it was much faster. You might get away without it but for me I needed it to stay on the gas longer...

to find the tune or just search my GT phoxxy10
Thank you and please like it if you do indeed like the tune

It's a shame that the incentive isn't a car. Most people have enough credits anyway. It's harder to spend a lot of credits than it is to earn them.

I got lucky (for once) and actually got the 1.5 million credits twice. Probably because of the sever issue. I'd share half with you if I could.

BadRiver has sent a love letter postmarked 2:26.958 to Johniwanna. Included was a note to join the top 6%.

The 2:26.958 lap was preceded by a clean 2:26.990 and a dirty 2:26.175. So there's room for us to improve. What helped me was learning to LIFT off the throttle instead of STABBING the brakes. I'm sure the DTM Lionel78 tune helped even more though.

If you try the 1969 Pontiac GTO, I've shared a livery to use.

Into the 2:26's folks. Love letters sent to several of my friends, including Mechberg. 2:26.776 and I got a lot more in the tank fellas.

The trick for me was to get away from dagnofears ghost and just run the track, I was far to wrapped up in staying ahead of him vs. focusing on my lap.

Oh, yeah!

Read RVM tomorrow in community news for a breakdown of my weekend Rival action.

As of this post that put me at number #755 out of more than 12,000 so far. My goal is to stay in the top 25%. If I can stay in the top 1,000 then I think I deserve to be serenaded by SatNiteEduardo.

I don't know if that would help me sleep but, I would like to here him sing a good Roy Orbison tune or something. Anyone got a challenge for me? I'm putting myself out there and don't have any bites yet.

John

I was busy to race the challenging rival, instead I used my spare time to improve the livery and make it on the Cheverolet Nova SS 1966 , that Johniwanna has used recently to beat his time, Livery is available now free at Forza 5 Storefront, search my gamertag Sadioki, or Bounty Hunter 1, please press Like if it pleases you/

Please if anybody used the livery to beat the time let me know, I would be glad to watch your video replay.

I'll definitely have to try this tune out as I use the TX as well. Plus, I have to get back ahead of John now that he's in the 26's.

Thanks Sadioki,

I will be running that livery from now on. I believe it will bring me good luck and will give those chasing my ghost something super cool to look at.

Happy Monday folks.

Thanks Dear Johniwanna for your kind words, I'm joyful that you like my recent livery, and sure that it will bring good luck to you because it has a personal musical theme which is special to you, also it has good visibility in Bumper and cockpit view, plus the other views as well. I added clouds to it so you can smoke out anybody behind you , so let's make WooHoo again and send send some love letters.

We don't always get what "we think" we deserve.

Maybe I should run the DTM tune on another outlap.

What would I have to do to earn a serenade?

I will be hitting the Community Bounty event today on #ForzaFriday at 3 p.m. I'll also be showing off the Forza Horizon 2 demo and the new endurance hoppers.

I WILL be in the 2:25s by the end of the weekend.

This month has been so busy I am going crazy. But today is my birthday and I have gotten a year better, so I am looking forward to trying out what my new skills will do on the track.

John

[Edited #ForzaFriday is at 3 p.m.]
