Forza Racing League Tips for racing Work in Progress - Please add Some guidelines and tips to help you enjoy Forza Race nights. Know the tracks! If you are going to participate please know the tracks you will be racing on. This will help you ten fold. In order to do this is take the car you will be using and run 10-15 hot laps in practice or time trials. Take a look at your time and compare it to some of the other racers in the league. This will give you a good idea of what to expect. Maybe you will need to change cars or tune it to improve times. The Racing Line Use it if your unfamiliar with the track. I recommend the "Braking Line" as the "Race line" can be distracting. The "Brake Line" is dynamic and will tell you when to brake based on many factors. No one will bother you for using it. Assists Use em if you want. If it helps you get around the track without riding the grass or smashing the wall then by all mean use em. Keep in mind though the more assists you have on the slower you lap times. Manual vs Auto Your choice. I use Auto and hate that I do but I think I am retarded and can't handle a lot of tasks at once. Manual does have its advantages as you can rev the engine higher and downshift to assist braking. These factors will improve lap times. IMO just choose what ever give you the faster lap times for you. Passing/Drafting/Bumping/Crashing Ok nothing is worse than spending time tuning and practicing to then be taken out in lap 1. IT IS A REQUIREMENT that you respect the racer in front of you. He may not brake when you want or accelerate when you want but that doesn't give you permission to smash his trunk and send flying off the course. This is where proper passing comes in the conversation. Remember we will be racing 6-10 lap races. You DON'T NEED to pass everyone on lap 1. Take your time and look for good places to pass. It also never hurts to alert the person you are passing "Steelah coming fast on your right". This further helps prevent accidents. Hellisan is a great passer and never passes when he shouldn't and never takes you out when doing it. Watch him! Last year we could go a few nights without any accidents and we kind of expect the same results. Drafting/tailgating - I have no problem with this if you can handle it. If you constantly bumping the guy in front of you then back off! Accidents will happen but we want to keep them to a minimum. If there is a big one in the 1st lap of a race we may restart if the we all agree. You car This is not a requirement but we suggest it. Customize your car's appearance. Nothing is more boring that you racing in a "Plain Jane" Stock car. Put some liveries on, some color, some wheels ect. Be an individual! Microphone Get one....it is important that we are able to communicate with you during the race. I don't want to be typing messages. I will consider this mandatory! Most important have fun, joke around and talk some trash. This is a casual race league. We are not cut throat, out for blood racers. We want you to enjoy racing and competition. This is all I have for now. Please add anything!
