    I've made it up to driver level 10... im running alot of C class stuff with a Saab 9-3x and a Lexus IS350.

    Most of my leaderboard times are in the top 10-15% it seems. Got alot of work to do to get some of the numbers down. But not having tuned anything and running with just two basic cars, i think i have some room to improve.

    I've made about 250,000.... in race winnings but i've spent it all on upgrades to 3 cars.

    I'm building a 09 Dodge Challenger SRT8 for drag racing... right now it's still in A class and running 14.0 flat in the 1/4. I plan on dropping alot more into it to get that down to 10's...

    Upgrades are expensive it seems, i can blow 80G's in a heartbeat...

    I got the the charger,camaro and the GNX out of all the charger is the best but in the mile you will run in like low 24 high and get beat by the SHITTY 1970 nissan datsun 510 that must be glitched or something bc that would never beat my 1100 HP charger

    Those are called "Missles" they said to have fixed that since forza 2, but its obvious they are still around. I think they are basically B-class cars with engine mods but stock wheels.

    I got the game and I'm currently on level 6 or so.

    As usual I'm going with the Japanese cars, and loving how cheap they are yet upgradeable. Old Skylines FTW. They have the R33 in this one which I like a lot. I've got one of those with a sweet Auto Select livery on it (gamer tag: Raudi).. (not a friend of mine he's a guy in the most popular garage out there, Gearbox)... Been racing most of my races with that car.

    I haven't decided which car to purchase yet. Right now I'm racing through the season with the cars that I win. I just won a 2007 Shelby GT 500 but I'm waiting to see what the first online race is to figure out what to start working on.

    Pretty sure I'm level 5. Haven't bought any cars, have used my money hooking up the ones I've won. I've been doing a combo of season and events. The season jumps all over the place, and I'm one of those anal (no homo) people who likes banging out the events in order. So I'm trying to get all the 1st column ones (Asian open, European open, 3 door challenge, etc) done before moving on to the World Class events.

    1st car I'm buying will be the Dodge Charger since that's what I drive (although I have an '09 and the one in the game is an '07 I believe). And will buy whatever we need for the 1st race

    I think im driver level 6 or 7 after one long night of racing.

    I started with the fit and its a beast now lol.

    I also got the '99 Honda civic SI and tricked it out to look like my RL car. (96 civic ex - custom gray paint w/ 17" enkei's). I think i spent almost 100,000cr upgrading the civic lol.
    I havent been able to hook it up to live yet, I hope im not too far behind the rest of the world.

    Side note: anyone else drive like a maniac after a few hours of Forza? I have been driving like a nut ever since Hellisan posted that video of the BMW. I showed my girlfriend that video and now every time I step on the gas in the car she says "Oh, are you in BMW mode right now?" lol

    Got my second career Top 5 lap time. Yeah it will be #20 a week from now. But on the track formerly known as King Cobra I'm currently #5. the tune sucks, too, trying to iron out the understeer under throttle. As soon as I fix it I'll be #1/2.

    crazy. i'll probably pick it up. one thing i love about this game is it only comes out once every few years so it tends to have a longer shelf life than compared to say Madden.

    Yes. Very long shelf life for the game. Another good thing about it, it always seems to stay fresh no matter how many times you've played it. When Forza 4 comes out years down the road, not only will the developer's have a lot of time to add new content, but since Forza 1, they have re-defined the game engine to a better one every time. Most good games usually hit shelves with sequels every 2-3 years because of that reason. Why bring out a crap game every year when you can take your time and develop a great game that drops every 2-3 years.

    Yeah and with all that included it doesn't take 8 years for them to build another game like Digital Polyphonies.

    I'm not bashing GT it is a great game for what it is, and at one point I thought I would never convert to another game (It's why I didn't wanna buy a 360 back in the day!) But despite that arse Dan Greenwalt these guys really have their shit together and keep putting out very solid games without constantly putting the games back, and back, and back again and again.
     
  25. I'm at lvl 13 right now and mostly running with europeen cars, such as porshe and BMW. The good Mercedes in this game are crazy expensive. And yeah Helli you're putting up ridiculous lap times, everytime I finnish a race I check the friends leaderboard and always find you somewhere in the 500's, sometimes higher.

    Here's a few pictures of my favorite rides in my garage (all these designs were bought)
