Great to see everyone back.
After a bit of time messing around with the VW Corrado, switched to the BMW and posted 2:17.353

Odin, I've started my new Xbox fund the other day, just have to decide whether the Series X is worth the extra money

You should bear in mind that the new Forza Motorsport game won't run on the XBox One Rob.

Release date would be nice.

I don't really care if they say it's 2022. It's pretty obvious it's not going to be a Series X/S release title. However, I can make it MY release title - buy only buying the next-gen console when Forza Motorsport releases. I'm happy to do this as Forza is what I enjoy.

It would be nice to know if it's 2021, 2022....I'm not that bothered when....but I'd like to know......you know?

No-one knows for sure, but if my OneX packed in next week I wouldn't be rushing out to replace it with another when the new box is so close to launch. When the new game does eventually launch I'll be wanting the new box immediately.

Hi Kid. Good to see you guys again. Preferred view is Chase far. Always used to use chase near but since i've spent a lot of time in Leagues and the hoppers, i've found that chase far gave you a bit more notice of when you were going to be wiped out by corner dive bombers ;). Also, checked the Leaderboard and i use a pad not a wheel. Awesome job btw.

Busy boy over the next few days, but i can see that the Civic 97 is the car to be in. Will have to rustle something up. Shame, the BMW is a fun car to really push.

Just done some test laps in the Honda 97 - ran the tune that Coop is using on the night track and managed 2:15.933 - which is quicker than my day time in the '07 by .6 or so - assuming that I can go quicker in the day time by 2ish seconds looking at comparative times from other guys on the lb's - will probably be running that on some longer runs over the weekend.

Might be able to put some pressure on Foot & Wan Ge if all my assumptions are not too far off.

I did some racing in the HLR Series 2 Hotlap.

So I want to try the HLC 4:

I ran the 97 Honda Civic Type R in Rivals and got a 2:16.309 using Boost Syndicate's tune.

I race with the TMX Pro racing wheel with the 3 pedals.

"Hood" view is the best for me.
I am on HLR Moss's Friend list.
Is there anyone else that I need to be "Friends" with?

You don't 'need' to be friends with anyone really - but it helps just to keep track of where people are in comparison to you & who you might want to be aiming for time wise. If you look at the LB in the first post, you'll see the current racers times & can follow any of them to add additional times to your rivals list.

Pretty sure you know all this but just in case, good to have you onboard Tomcat.

Same deal as before. Always Driver cam, always wheel, always hardcore, DEATH BEFORE AERO!, etc.

Running a Clio again. Didn't even try anything else. Started off with my build from Indy last season, but decided to try a full weight reduction build on Street tires and had a bit better luck with it. I think the more even weight distribution makes the staggered tire setup a bit more bearable, which is really the Clio's only downside. Well, that and it's a Chonkzilla. How the hell can a purpose-built subcompact track car weigh 3 grand?

[Previous] Current best: 2:16.7

Can probably dip into the high 2:15 range with it. Setup really needs a thorough going-over, but I'm going to attempt to fiddle around less and drive more this time around.

== Edit to add

Gave in to necessity and clicked the brakes from 44% to 45%. Car really needs about 44.7%, but we make do with what we have. Setup should be as set as it's going to get now (see also: "fiddle less, drive more"). It's well balanced, fairly controllable (it is still MR), and has a surprisingly good amount of front grip at speed given the weight distribution and available tire selection. There's a bit of a fine line between maintaining traction and sliding, though, so you have to be careful not to push it too hard or you'll lose the fronts and slide off into the weeds. Uploaded as HLC S4.01 NGP v2 if anyone wants to take it for a spin.

[Current] Current best: 2:15.9

== End edit

Run the Bimmer if you want to run the Bimmer. There's still a ton of fun to be had pushing a suboptimal car around, even if you'll never see the top half the the leaderboard in it. Hell, I'm driving a no aero/Street tire Clio. Can't get much more suboptimal than that.

Did about 12 laps in my '97 Civic, then switched to my BMW for about 20 laps and managed a 2.17:596
There is a lot more in it, but I really struggled with finding back the FM7 feel.
Been hanging around so long in Horizon 4 with awd bonanza, that the FWD and RWD and actual track driving takes a a while to get into.
Looking at sector times, I should be able to get into mid 2.16 with that tune. That will be the goal for the week.
Had fun chasing Rob around this afternoon , but just nudged a curb too much in a couple of faster laps.

We will get the Series X at launch (two of them actually, one for my dad and one for me) so we will get back into driving together and against each other.
Looking forward to that.

Time update 2:13564 (Kid I'm now in the '97 Civic) - been in the 2:12's just manage to dirty the lap somewhere each time.

There's a couple of corners I just can't get right, do o.k. in the early part of the course and it all slowly slips away lol. Been a few car lengths ahead of some of the ghosts I've chased and just start to see them reel me in as the lap goes on. Unfortunately, I tend to push a bit too hard through some corners in an effort to make up time and lose time or dirty the lap as a result.

Good course & class choice for all my shortcomings - been enjoying getting some laps in.

The Civics in all years were a joy to drive...... especially the ‘07. The default 😗’97 was driven hard but I got my PB with the BMW 323ti..... and considering how hard I had to dig that is a monumental achievement!

Official time.... Ring GP..... HLR BURNINASPHALT...... BMW 323 ti Sport..... 2:19:854 😎

Might run a RX-7 for this. Probably the '85. We'll see. It may sound odd given that I own one, but I don't enjoy driving the Miatas much in this game. Forza just doesn't do them any justice.

Surprised I came out on top in Week 1 as FWD cars are usually my kryptonite. Props to all the drivers competing.

Thanks to HLR for starting this HLC again much appreciated. This will keep us going until FM8 :) .

I already had time on this track but managed to set a new PB of 54:5 in a Mazda mx5 '94 - frustrating set of laps though, major oversteer issues on corner exit left me spearing in to the wall on a number of laps. It's a wheel thing lol.

If anyone has any tips for tuning that out - particularly when using a wheel, would appreciate it. I can just nurse the go pedal a bit more but it goes against all my instincts lol.

Good week guys, first time on Forza in what may be like a year and that may of only been for a day or 2. It does takes some time to get any sort of consistency for a 2min+ lap lol ran a high .7 with a rewind struggled for clean laps though on that chicane happy with a .9 though for a track i'm not particularly keen on. GG's Soarer great time lots of new faces on the Forza scene from when i used to play a lot sure i'll be seeing a lot more of you in FM8 if they manage to nail a good game from the get go and not repairing the damage they did for 2 years.

Looking forward to Rio Coast looking like top times going to be the Integra, this was actually a LB i wanted to do way back pretty stacked top page always down for this sort of competition.

Also forgot if i tune a car this week i'll remember to save it before i run a time so when i share it shows on the LB's for you guys
