Hmmm, I can't find any street races on my map. I've maxed out 3 out of 4 festival sites (still need to do Surfers Paradise).

What am I missing ?

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.

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?

They sit there all day searching over and over as fast as they can for cheap 918 buyouts. One guy made a YouTube video about it showing he has hundreds of millions of credits.

I guess it's fun? There's nothing to even spend that money on.

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...

Those were the absolute worst. But this legendary painter/tuner thing is BS too. Buying 918s for ~1.5M and turning around and selling them for 10+M is terrible. Shouldn't be in the game. The economy in both FM/FH really needs a rethink. Hope FM7 fixes things like bringing back gifting money/cars.

Snagged an HE GTR in the auction house for under 3 mil, and after experimenting with various tunes I ended up tinkering with it myself and I think I've stumbled upon something nice.

Now to wait for tomorrow and the Huracan.

is anyone buying is the real question. If nobody is buying said 10 mil cars, scalpers only lose out. All the tunes and paint jobs I see on the auction house are complete hot trash anyways, even from the zillion downloads ones.

Crikey that was a tough jump to complete. But I did.

Kept getting within 2-3m of the target.

What got me there was slowly knocking down the trees and bushes in the way to make a straight path. Hitting them at speed only takes a few kmh off the speed but does enough to stop you getting three stars.

My longest jump before completing it was 166m. The next went way over at 174m and got me the Lambo.

I simply can't do this damn jump. I keep bouncing around and losing too much speed. I can't hit the bump at 140Mph and I end up landing 540ft. It's starting to get to me. This might be the first Forzathon event I miss.

Thanks.

I still don't understand why the Forza Hub app doesn't do Forzathon notifications.

There's a Hitman app on my phone that lets me know when there's a new elusive target and reminds me when it's almost gone but the Microsoft published app that deals with a Microsoft owned and published game in Microsoft's app store on a Microsoft OS doesn't let me know about limited time events. There's no good excuse for not getting that together.
