Hi folks,

As I mentioned in today's edition of the Week in Review, we're going to be putting up a new Cycled Production hopper in Forza Motorsport 6. We'd love to get ideas from the community for this hopper and that's what this thread is all about. Put your favorite ideas for cars and tracks in the thread below and we'll pull a few of our favorites and include them when the new hopper goes live. Please note that all ideas must use non-DLC cars and tracks.

Looking forward to see what you guys come up with!

Im happy you guys are not including dlc cars, this caused the chevy and audi cycled hoppers to constantly empty out. I guess my suggestions would be indy cars on daytona, gt2/3 cars on nurburgring gp or spa and prototypes on le mans, Brands hatch is always good with a btcc car and v8 supercars on Bathurst are all kind of no brainers. As far as production cars go i personally dont have any real preferences but i do think longer tracks should have fast cars and shorter tracks should have slower cars. Something like a ferrari/lambo on monza would be good, where as lime rock should be some kind of miata or anything that shares its characteristics. An aston martin dbs would be a good kind of car for a medium sized track. I would also suggest not putting any super low pi cars or any of the top gear tracks in the rotation no one really likes them.

I think that the Hummer H1 Alphaand the Airfield Test track would be nice

Any HSV around Bathurst.
Any Holden around Bathurst. (Bit **** all the street Holdens are DLC, fix pls!)
Ford XY GTHO around Bathurst (I'm sure there are 'other' Fords that fit the aussie racing theme, but you will have to ask someone of less class who likes them. ;-) See above re Aussie street cars being DLC...)

Bentleys at Brands!
Dodge Daytona.......at Daytona!
M1 procar at the 'ring.
Maserati Madness at Monza.

2x distance at least please! The longer the races, the better.
I even like damage on, and pit stops. Since the Leagues are dead in pinnacle, the only place to go for that now is the Modern GT Hopper, which is R class. Would be great if this is available in lower classes than R.

Preferred tracks:
- Any Watkins Glen variation seems to be liked a lot, as hopper voting shows.
- Long Beach in a power car is always a lot of fun!
- Lime Rock
- Hockenheim
- Rio (lower - middle classes only)
- RA

Almost all tracks are fun to me. Except:
- Exclude Yas Marina completely from the roulation. All this track does is amplify FM6's track cutting issue. And even apart from that, it is not a fun venue to drive at all. Yet we drive it very often due to the statistics of it showing up in hoppers.
- Exclude Monza due to the state of the track limits.
- Avoid tracks like the ovals or any Indianapolis or Top Gear variation.

Looking forward on a fun cycled production hopper!

S CLASS RWD ONLY DRAG LOBBYS PLEASE !!! I speak for a large part of drag community who has no clue how to post on here but Indy cars and other race cars kill the fun in rwd drags online so to make it s class rwd would keep it more far since most rwd cars r only s class. Or even better would be rwd front engine only drag !!!

A lot more randomness would be good. As it is now the hopper is great for maybe one session, and then you just start seeing the same races over and over again and it gets pretty stale.

I feel like I'm missing something in this lobby. I used to love cycled production in forza 4, like spend my whole evening after work fighting for fourth place in a Hummer or Nissan Leaf. I loved it, but this time around its all super cars and race cars. I drive with no assists and I'm pretty sure that it's killing me in this lobby because I'm being walked around like I'm not there. I don't expect to win but I do expect to be able to escape the black hole at the back half of the pack who don't know what brakes are and I can barely do that.

I'm being out cornered, out accelerated, and out braked by players across the spectrum and it has to be partly my preference of lower class cars but also my assist choices.

So IMO the easiest fix would be to slow the lobby down some. There's nothing wrong with E and D class! Bring out some classic muscle, some JDM, some older German gems like early M3s and more. Ford GT followed by an aventador, or the lotus F1 car does not get me excited.

I'm sure my opinion is not what everyone else thinks but the best racing is in the lower classes.
