Welcome JD

It's not that it's intentional.....it more the fact you can't steer a car careening down the track on it's roof.  cheeky

Hi folks, figured I should introduce myself after lurking for a while.

My names Steve, I'm a 29 year old Architectural Ironmonger from Essex in the UK. My Xbox GT is FLUENTC0DE (the 0 is a zero!), feel free to shoot me a friend request if you like non competative hooning around on Forza. I play mostly at weekends due to the good womans gaming restrictions (that's not strictly true, I just feel bad if I hog the TV all week) and enjoy anything up to and including A class racing.

 

In the real world I'm a car nut too. True to my Essex roots it's all about the Blue Oval though. I'm currently driving a Mondeo ST (Contour SVT to those of you the wrong side of the Atlantic) and trying to hunt down a decent Capri for a V8 project to keep me warm next winter. I look forward to more evenings on the track with you guys.

If you don't mind me being a lazy youngster I'll just copy most of what I wrote in the Forza Series;
 

Hi everyone,

Just thought I'd introduce myself and am hoping that you let me stay even though I'm not yet 25 (two months left).

I'm a 24 year old guy from Sweden, currently studying Marketing and Sales at university and working part time at a Toyota/Mitsubishi/Hyundai/Peugeot dealership. The name's Erik Rausner but most people just call me Rausner!

In real life I'm an absolute car fanatic. When me and my dad went to London he told me my behaviour was slightly Aspergers-like with me reacting to all the exotics rolling around there lol, and even though I'm not diagnozed I live and breathe cars. Spending a lot of time on different car forums now as the Uni studies isn't really making me wealthy and has caused me to drive a 1.6 75bhp Polo as a daily which is hardly as fun as my old Cooper S.

Have been playing this series from FM2 and am deeply passionate about it. Hoping to have a good time with decent fellas that are into a bit more serious racing than the random punters you usually find online. What I lack in age old experience I make up in youthful eagerness to learn ;)

 

 

I'm currently away from my apartment for another two weeks so can't get back online until the 26th of May!

My gamertag is Rausner so feel free to add me yes

 

Cheers everyone,

Rausner

 

Oh, and sorry for the bible like length of my introduction ^^

Hey Rausner. I just noticed that you're 24. The sitewide minimum age is 25. I personally don't have a problem with it, but I do have to run it by the site admin. When will you be turning 25?

 

In a worst case scenarion, you'd be allowed to particiate as a member of the clan, but you may not have access to the forums here until you'r b-day.

 

Regardless, welcome to the group.

Like I said out in the open part and in here I'll be turning 25 in two months time (21st of July). I really hope you guys let me stay as I've been looking for a long time for people to drive more seriously with online :)

Serious as in driving with people who won't intentionally bump you off the track or drive in the reverse direction. Other than that I don't think I'm more serious than anybody else - It's a videogame, not F1 :P

Most of our guys feel worse about knocking someone off the track than the guy that got bumped. You'll be fine here.

Ok Rausner. I checked with Doodi & he said we could put you on probation until your b-day. So basically, you'll be able to visit the forums here, but you won't be able to post. Although you should still be able to access everything here & be able to use the sign-up forms for events etc.

 

I'm sorry to be an ass & do this to you, but unfortunately, it's not my call to make.

 

In the meantime, I'm going to send you a Fr from our active members gamertag. Then you'll be able to view that tag's friends to find other members until you make some friends on your own list. If there's anything else you should need, feel free to shoot me a mmsg on xbl.

Welcome Rausner.

 

Might be a bit crappy that you are on hold for a while, but the +25 limit stops most of the Timmys getting in here and spoiling it for everyone.

 

Hope to see you on the track.

He's seems to be doing a pretty good job of posting under his probation period, I wouldn't worry about it too much. Maybe Doodi doesn't get around to it for a number of weeks and the next thing you know ole Rausner here will be one of us, boom, problem solved. wink

 

But let's keep the probabtion period. We need to tests Rausners mettle...motion passed!

No problem guys, I respect the rules and have no problem with this and am happy that I still get to muck about with you guys on the game in the meantime. Now I have a reason to look forward to my 25th birthday other than getting cheaper car insurance ^^

Hello everyone ! Thanks jcotter13 for accepting my membership request to be part of 2OLD4FORZA. My gamer tag : InkaB0DpaiN  the letter"o"is the number zero. I've been mostly playing driving sim games on the PS3 because the only wheel I had at the time was a G27 .This is my first Forza game . I finally got a csr elite wheel and I ' ve been hooked on it from the get go. I suck at tuning and I'm ok driving . I am pretty good at painting . I am a clean racer and stay on my driving lines as best as I can, of course unless there is your typical bumping and rubbing.Anyway send a FR my way and hope to race with guys sometime in the near future. I did see the video for the Trans Am series. Nice video. That is one of the many racing series that I enjoy and would love to participate . Thank you again !

Welcome Soups. Nice set up!

 

If you play GT5 (how can you not?) and are available Eastern times on Thursday evenings you should check out the GT5 Thursday Nights thread in the series & events sub forum. It'll be hit and miss over the upcoming summer months but we usually get our 8-10 regulars and race for 3-4 hours just about every week and have a blast doing it.

 

So I guess I'll see you Thursday night then. yes
