Not at the loss of Walker, of course, what with his having been a swell guy and all, but I can't roll my eyes hard enough at how any and all mention of the Carrera GT prompts reflexive condolences for his untimely demise.

So I checked out Stevio2175's tune and I was actually able to get above 550ft a lot more consistently (although sometimes I still come up short). I think I can use his tune to get the Huracan HE.

The more downloads, uses, and likes a painter or tuner receives for all the designs or tunes they've shared, the higher their Painter or Tuner rank. The highest rank is legend.

The higher your rank, the more you can charge for cars in the auction house. Some people complain this isn't fair (and those probably aren't the people who have earned a higher rank for their creations, and get to benefit from it).

It takes all of a couple of minutes to earn the Carrera GT by completing a street race. Why anyone would throw down millions of credits for a free car is their problem. The car will more than likely be made available again in a future #Forzathon event.

Uh you do know that not everyone played at the same time, right? Many came after certain cars were gone / unobtainable, so there's no way to go around that if you want certain cars.

np, once you get a M4 HE you could try out my drift build as well

also I upgraded my airport jump config to hopefully be easier to make the jump with

Sometimes I'm lazy and don't bother doing an event. If you want a 918 now, you're only option is to throw down big cash.

I also wouldn't confidently claim that cars will be available in future events. They've only done that like once.

Challenge some drivatars by driving behind them and hitting (X) to Head-to-Head races (you can just drive to the finish as there are no checkpoints in these races), that should trigger the street races which ultimately unlock the Midnight Battles (there are checkpoints in these races) where you can win the opponents car.

Not that far away, hope you get it.

Back to my Chevelle I go, hopefully the M4 HE won't be this disappointing.

What you need is the 2012 Nissan GT-R Black Edition Horizon Don Jowong Song Edition, I do agree I got the one below for a few million CR's and it's not spectacular, but it's still very nice to drive, I think that what happens is that people tune cars up to S2 where there isn't a need to, if the tune is good then you can have more fun in a A or S1 class than in a S2-998 I have found.



Look for Don Jowong Song in the tunes, I think that is his design as well.

I don't know, I have seen the CGT going for CR-250,000 buyout and anything less than CR-1m is getting snapped up faster then the CGT goes from 0mph to 1mph, on the bidding they are going for around CR-1.5m, once this weekend is over they will rise in price I think, not to the levels of the 918 though, but I don't understand why anyone would have a buyout set so low, it makes no sense at all.

This is my S1 CGT.

You make a online campaign lobby, pause, go to horizon group, and you can add him from there. (don't know xbox controls sorry)

I've finally found some time to play Hot Wheels expansion a bit. It's okay but nowhere near the amount of fun I had with Blizzard Mountain. It doesn't help that the colors of the surface and the bends sometimes merge and the corners aren't that easy to spot at high speed. Also I didn't really enjoy 2 Hot Wheel cars I've unlocked so far. Completed most of the events with traditional cars.

He is my go to tuner, the only issue I have is that sometimes he has wheels or the front/rear wings on the car that I don't like.

He is a drifter, I am not but I have found his tunes to be progressive drifters, so most of the time I can hold the drift.

Other news, the servers are down it seems.

We are aware of the present issues with the #ForzaHorizon3 servers and are investigating. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

I've found some of his Horizon 3 videos on YouTube before, but never gave too much time. I'll try and watch them again.

You are level 1000 now are you not?

I do like on the Hot Wheels championships that you have to race in different classes, I am blueprinting each one I do though so that I am using Hot Wheels cars.

One thing though that I have thought of, with Porsche in from the start on future Forza Motorsport and Horizon games, are they not something of a game-breaker, you can just use a Porsche to go though the entire game due to their upgradability, a car for all eventualities.

I liked how they did it in FM6 where you went though the story and history of Porsche.

Got lvl 1000 a few days ago. You get a star icon and the level gap goes back down to only 200k. Takes like 10 hours of grinding just for the last 30 levels. Insanity really.

You get nothing for beating hot wheels Goliath, getting all the stars, or even 100%.

I was under the impression that you could blueprint hot wheels races after beating the goliath?
I just really want to do some of these races with x class vehicles.

edit - beat the goliath again and it's letting me make custom championships now.

Trying to nab a cheap Porsche 918 off the AH. However, I am seeing 1 person selling 10 of them. All going for about 10m+! That one person must be making bank. How on earth do they have that many 918s in their garage?

Well I guess that amount of money comes in handy when they want to buy a super fast rare car like... hmm... I don't know... maybe a Porsche 918..?

Shit is annoying for the rest of us who want to buy one and actually use it...
