Forza Motorsport 6 - your favorite cars so far?

I know we couldn't possibly have driven them all yet but so far I am liking: 1965 Mini The full on touring cars which should be a series soon, I'm sure The BAC Mono - stock set up and it's out of this world good. That's all for now. I'm sure there are more to come. So, what are your favorites so far? P.S. Would you guys mind trying my e class 65 mini tune and letting me know what you think? It should be in the tuning setups. Search 2O4F Snappy. It's under my gamertag - GENTLEMAN RACER

'65 Mini Cooper is broken, they're going to be changing it as well as deleting leaderboard times with the car AFAIK.

My 3 favorites so far are Aston Martin DBS, BMW 1M, and '97 Honda Civic but I have not tried that many yet.

I read the Forza Forum link you posted. Fortunately my build did not consist of a RWD conversion but I did install the race diff. Too bad the car is busted. Anyway, someone please try my tune and let me know what you think. I don't believe my build causes any major abnormalities but then again. I could be really slow and not know the difference.

At any rate, they should have it fixed soon but the change is probably going to affect your tune I'd imagine.  You might have to rebuild/retune, we'll see.

Can't say that I have a favorite car yet. I've barely driven the cars I've been gifted or won in prize spins. Speaking of cars, I was perusing through a thread on Forzamotorsport.net that we may be getting the Caporo T1 and the Cadillac XTS Limo in an upcoming DLC. Unfortunately the videos have been removed so I can't confirm first-hand. I we are indeed getting a limo in Forza we'll have to race them at Long Beach. Carnage at the fountain and hairpin.

Renault Clio but only because it's the first car I picked for my career and is the only one I've put in any time at all with so far.

Check in FM5 if you have a lower case "a" in your paint, delete them all, save. Now you should be able to import it in FM6, add the "a" again and your good to go. Should be some info in the painters lounge on FM.net on this.

Actually I think the last patch supposedly fixed this, but I've already shifted them over like you suggest Zeratul, thank you though!

My new favorite lately is that new P class thing starts with a C, can never remember what it's called. Love it though!

Caparo!

2017?

I have found many really good cars. I just blew about 1.5 mill creds on tunes and went through my entire garage pretty much. Tired of not having anything ready in a lobby. The Cougars good, the little Elan is still good, The BMW Procar's really fun.

Currently mine would be the Honda 05’ NSX.  I’m using it in the “A” class ghost league and having a ball with it.  A general tune from Raceboy77 and learning the ins and outs of what the car can do has allowed me (a very average but careful driver) to currently rank 9th on the LB’s.  All it takes is a little time and a willingness to stay on the track and out of trouble.  Toss in sim damage for an extra 10% bonus and the BCM’s can drive like they want.  I just drive through them.  http://youtu.be/N6Rvw3zqySU 

I also am using the Toyota GT86 which isn’t as good but wanted to level up another car.

?????  Is there an increase in credits bonus system when your affinity gets to 25?

No. Driver level spins go up in value when you get up a bit, but I'm not sure when it kicks in.

The new Sunbeam Tiger in B class is turning out to be a wonderful little ride.

I have noticed in the "ghost" leagues that clean does count.  You could get 1000 pts. for your finish but get 3-4 times that in additional points for the race.  But they don't seem to be added to the LB totals so I don't see where they come into play.  And much prefer these rooms to the contact lobbies where everybody and their brother is moving me out of the way.  Still hovering in the 1-2% percentile.

It now shows just the points for the race place.  I must have spaced out and imagined it.  I think I need new glasses.

driver level and affinity are independent of the League points.

However, a clean lap, or laps, and faster lap times will move you up in the start of the next race and award more League points.

I will see if there might be a correlation with the bonus credits that are gifted at the end of that weeks cycle and the league points that are computed but not credited to the LB's..

My apologies for the space cadet observations in my previous 2 posts.  There is no additional points awarded for driving clean.  I did receive an additional 992,000 credits for my 12th place out of about 1300 competitors in the league.  Now I move up to the professional division and I noticed that the same principles apply in driving.  "The race is not won on the 1st lap but can be lost".  Staying on the track & out of trouble gets me a mid to upper 1/3 pack finish against the speedsters. 

I am disappointed that the new "sim" B class league is open to ELITE division drivers and up only.  I guess I should drive like an idiot to earn a spot in the upper division.  I would think that T10 could through it's macros indentify drivers who drive clean.  Spend a little less on those stupid achievements notices.

So far, NOT the Rolls Royce Wraith, although, for what it is, it's not horrible...
