Vote for which spec you would prefer!

Stock cars - Self explanatory.
B500 unlimited - Do whatever you want so long as it stays under B500.
Spec race - You are allowed to fit x,y,z components then tune to your tastes.
Power limited - Max power limited to 250bhp, all else is free.

I think the spec race would be most like real club racing, you would have rules as to what you can fit then you can tune it to your tastes. Most likely all the handling mods and some limited power mods to make it up to around 220bhp?

That and stock cars will have the closest racing IMO. :nice:

B500:nice:

The whole ideas of the class's is the game is to make competitive in that class, we have been doing a lot of racing online in class B & it has been working fine (a part from Garry leaving the rest of us for dead:shocked::lol::shocked:)

But I'm happy to race in what ever comes out of the poll!:drive:

B500 makes most sense, is easiest to police and everybody probably already has an eligible car.

I'm guessing B500 Unlimited it is?
Maybe we can make the Set Spec a Time Trial series? (This would allow anyone to post at time whenever and even avoid accidents althought that shows skill level also to adjusting lines etc.)

Could we do the "time trial" set spec on one of the RIVALS on the community thing and use a set spec car from club garage? This gives a club leaderboard but we need to use the same car?

Is there another way anyone can think of doing a set spec setup time trial? :run:

I might get walked... I'm still under 190hp lol. Guess I'll have to race with you guys and find a medium.

Yea see this is what I was trying to avoid with the set spec, a lot of people say balls to the handling and grip and just throw power at it, sadly Forza always seems to favour power over handling! I'll be running mine at 197bhp regardless, I can't drive without grip.

If you get enough of an advantage on the corners it doesnt matter how quick they are :run:

in my experience, having a lot of grip (which in turn can cause a lot of drag) and quick acceleration, you can get a big advantage!

BUT i have tried to get the power kinda reasonable as well, maybe setup a 2nd car with more power/speed than grip.....see what lap times i get between the 2.....

Modern Warefare 3 has taken over just now though :lol:

True true, I'll just sort out multiple tuning setups within B class, depending on the track, other cars etc.

when are you's planning on starting this
I'm easy, someone else needs to take charge though.

I see were your coming from with this, but B500 seems to work quite well with people who have been racing on line (apart from elchunk leaving us all)

:naughty:


I guess we'll find out eh! :nerv:
:nice::drive::nice:

I am going to take control of this if it ok with kozy????

I will put up a poll for people to vote on the best night to run this, soon as we have a day I'll get it up & running ASAP!

I'll take charge & get the ball rolling ASAP!:nice:

Yep. I can't race with low amounts of grip cause I'm too used to having lots of it. I either bomb the turn to fast and brake too late or get on to early and push on exit. Maybe I'll just need to learn to adj. But as it stands now my 9's only making 188 bahahahah. I made another one pushing ~230 but can't stand the horribly low amount of grip. Not to mention I hate running the wing weir just looks hideous.

Is Aero part of the B500?
