I assumed you don't have the problems that plague a lot of TX owners. I went to dismantle my Fanatec and the rubber they used for the shifter housing was pretty much melted.

Alright I think I am going for TX as there are a lot of option if I want to upgrade later on.

Now I just need to see if I can unload the Fanatec wheel and CLS pedals. (going to miss that pedals compare to the cheap plastic one that come with TX)

Thanks again to both you and Tyler for all the comments and suggestions.
I haven't had any issues with it. Seems well supported in most of the major sims too.

Fired this up for the first time in AGES and I'm seeing car markers for proximity and his for pit lane? Am I crazy or was this added post launch? Any thing else of note?

Was added with the NASCAR dlc, don't think much else of note was really added, some tweaks of the handling other than that nadda

Having just got back into FH3 and playing on my Xbox One. Should I purchase this game at this point or wait for FM7?

I have an urge to do some on-track racing. Also wouldn't be a bad thing to boost my Forza hub rewards, right?

VIP Pass in on sale for $5. Is it worth it for the extra cars? Just bought the Porsche expansion for $5 last week too.
They're cars, nothing super special about them. If you like some of them or if you're a car collector you will enjoy the additions. The best reason to buy the VIP Pass is to be able to get double money for completing races (assuming you're into the singleplayer component and didn't progress that far ahead).

That depends if you want to buy FM7 on day one or sometime next year when it's cheaper. I'd say go for it. Only FM5 imo wasn't worth it, because it severely lacked in content (and generally brand new stuff).

I'd probably end up getting FM7 day one to be fair. I just thought it would be cool to go back and play FM6 for completeness and for a more traditional kind of racing. Might dip in if I can get an offer on it

quick question: this is my first Forza and my first racing game in at least 10 years.

Is it not possible to win the Super Street Hereos Event on Brends Hatch on your first try?
I got 2nd place, but couldn't even get close to the 370Z leading the race.

It is possible you just have to be super aggressive on the start to make places early. I remember thinking it was a bit of a cheap race, but I'd prefer most of the races to be at least double the length anyway. Will you be joining us for forza 7 at the end of the month?

Haven't looked into it, but can you tweak/tune your cars? Or do you have to unlock better parts?
In the next race my car wasn't breaking as good as the others it felt.


And I'm thinking about it.
Will spend some time with apex and will at least check out the PC demo.

Talking about PC: is Apex capped at 30 fps?

You can do both, buy upgrades and tune, as long as you keep to the race Class.

No, but the unlock is hidden in a funny menu and it's been a while since I played apex, but it's definitely able to run at 60fps DF analysis

You buy upgraded parts with credits earned from racing. The street and sports level parts offer limited scope for tuning, but do offer performance upgrades.

Race level parts let you fully tune and adjust.

But you can always, no matter which parts are fitted, change minor things such as tire pressure. Also some cars come with parts that are street, sport or even race level already. And so you can choose those elements right away.

Upgrading cars can send you out of the class level you're supposed to be in. But things like suspension and brakes - which make a big difference - don't up your PI level very much.

One of the best upgrades you can do, if you can't afford to do the whole car, is upgrade the tires and brakes.

Another thing to look out for is if you do a total conversion - such as putting a completely different engine in the car. Any engine upgrades you've already bought will not be fitted to the new engine. Similarly if you change the car's aspiration. So if you want to fit a new engine or change the aspiration - do that then make any engine upgrades that you want.

Just a quick reminder Forza 7 is out for ultimate digi-preorders on the 29th Zorbs and I have picked up the OT as we couldn't find anyone who'd volunteered for it.

If you have ideas for the title let them loose.

My poor contribution to the FM7 title:

Forza Motorsport 7 |OT| The Definitive 4K Racer

Forza Motorsport 7 |OT| Turning 1080p/60fps lovers into 4K/60fps Racers

I'll see myself out now.

Forza Motorsport 7 |OT| Guitar Heroes Welcome

Could I also use this opportunity to kindly ask FrontierUK / Zorbsie to push the Gaf Racers Discord channel in the OT? It was something I suggested in the PC Racing Sims thread to gather all racers on Gaf together in order for us to easily organise races/leagues/online sessions across the slew of this year's racing games (also the current crop) and to also discuss other things such as hardware, setups, Gaf threads, tips and guides.
Its something that's only just been set up and there's a few Gaf members on there already. If its something you guys are interested in, PM me and I'll let you know the server details.

Now normally this being a console title this sort of thing wouldn't be required, but with Forza 7 being play anywhere we should support our PC brethren.

It might also sort out our having to have two parties for chat... Though hopefully they'll have lobby chat right this time...

Hi guys,

In prep for Forza 7 I've just been through the request list for membership to Forza GAF, we've got 23 requests that I can't tie to a GAF member.

As such I'm going to reject all of them, I apologise to any legit requests but as the admins asked to be notified and there are six of us or you havent added yourself to the spreadsheet mentioned here...

Alright boys and girls of ForzaGAF, I have the spreadsheet ready! I removed all the old info, so you are going to have to re-add yourself.

Quote this post to see the link and then add in your info!

If you want adding please drop one of us a line via pm on GAF
