For me Steve , my fav part of the game is setting lap times and seeing how I do on the leaderboards , I got in the top 10 on a few for a while , think I am still in the top 20 but will have to check.
But I love comparing my times to mates times and at the moment I only have 2 friends with the game so will be nice to have a couple more to beat!

So what exactly are you gonna set up? How about every week you choose a track and a car to do it in and then we all set about getting the fastest time. (we will be able to check each others times in the leaderboards so no cheating is possible not that I would).
Then by say sunday of every week the fastest time wins (again in the leaderboards is gives a date for the lap time).
I will certainly give it a good blast on friday this week at some point in the evening so if you are on there I will give you a shout to chat.

Well it will have to be done in free play, Then hotlap and then whatever car i chose and track,the car will be a stock car but players can tune away till there hearts content, I will decide about assists on/off nearer the time.
Yeah your ideas about once a week declare a winner on a sunday sound spot on. I will post the full details on fri 2/04/10

Re: Forza 3 Plusneter's Time Trial's (Xbox 360)

Actually if I can just add one point about the assists.....
I notice , on the leaderboards some people do well with some on , some people do well with them all off , infact the best times are set with them all off. But I always need a couple on.
Perhaps it would be best to let people choose what assists they want as it can only be an advantage if its to your own driving style?
Just a thought like.

No worries , I am happy to roll with whatever the end choice is anyway.
But recon it will be more fun for everyone if you just give the car and track and then anyone can choose whatever else they want.
Its tricky cos every car can be tuned , but most folks who know the game will know the car needs to be tuned to the top of its class to be competitive like to say 600 instead of say 524 for example.
I think once we establish this for the 1st time then every other week will be fine , its just the initial set up seeing as its new for us all.

Re: Forza 3 Plusneter's Time Trial's (Xbox 360)

Just on the game now and about to have a go with the set car and track , but I am unsure about the tuning thing Steve.
You put in an earlier post it will be a stock car but players can tune away till their hearts content. Do you mean tune as in adding power/upgrades or tune as in altering gear ratios/camber etc?
Well I aint gonna wait for an answer so I am just gonna tune it but still keeping it within class E.
Will also stick with the assists you mentioned above.
I will post my best time in a bit.

Well I was on xbox all night and nobody turned up  Cry
Such is life I guess lol.
I thought I set an ok time in E class then checked later and there is no record of me even doing it  Shocked
Will knock this weeks one on the head I think.
Give us a new one for next week ok Steve.
