The challenge is for FWD only, B class, online race against opponents, Ladera Test Track "mini" course.

I would love to see everyone try my Acura RSX tune (free from my storefront), target time 31.041 (my replay is on my SF)

If you really dislike my tune, or the RSX, or both, put yourself in any B class FWD

Top drivers can give themselves more of a challenge by changing the grid ordering

prize for fastest lap is a Maserati MC12 and companion street-legal Maserati with the Maserati Corse livery to match

I tried the Acura and the gears didn't seem right for my MS Racing wheel.
I think I was getting in the 29's.

I retuned the car using the Forza 4 Tuning Calc and got a 28.257 in Hot Laps on about lap 5 I think.
I raced AI cars in Multiplayer and came up with a 28.621 on about lap 5 in a 6 lap race.

Both replays up on the Storefront.

@ T0rqueFact0ry: I sent you the tune, that I got from the Forza 4 Ver 4.9 Tuning calculator, for you to try.

I agree: I like your tune better. Have used it on the Acura I am sharing in the club garage. Thanks.

That's why I mentioned in the original post that my tune is not required to fulfill the challenge. It's nearly impossible to optimize a car for every kind of driving style. Actually, it is impossible, since "optimize" means "to make the best or most effective" so there is only one optimized tune for each driver on an individual car and an individual track. That's a lot of variables =3}

The important thing is, you're in the race for which the prizes are two very nice cars. Also, you can keep trying to better your performance as many times as you like until there is no fresh interest. Even then, I will give plaenty of advance notice before closing the competition. Good luck.
