what are you guys doing to prepare for the profile import? i sold all my porsches obviously.. and i think im goin to trim my car collection down to 2 or 3 manufacturers mostly and just keep all the rest of the bank.

and i just bought the f40 competizione and it sounds better than any car in forza 3 ive heard so far. the joss jt1 sounds really good too suprisingly


Have you driven the SSC Aero in Forza 3? Traction control couldn't even keep up!

IF they include the Ariel Atom, I hope they allow us to do some crazy motor swap and add forced induction to it. I mean... an 800 HP Atom is just...

It showed up when I first posted. Links to images and videos haven't been working for me lately. I don't know if it's just the source or something to do with Google Chrome.

the ssc in forza 3 was totally accurate too.. during testing they couldnt give it full throttle until after like 140mph. it had terrible wheelspin even at 100mph

also.. an 800hp atom would be insane IRL. i wouldnt want anything more than the 4 cylinder

The clip from Top Gear when Jeremy Clarkson drove the 500 HP Ariel Atom V8 was absolutely grand. 500 HP in something that weighs as much as... what? Two or three motorcycles? An extra 150 HP (see video above) is absolutely nuts.

Top Gear clip:



Although the basic 300 HP is more than enough for what that car is, that doesn't mean I wouldn't want the V8.

Yup, only 4 tracks LOL.

But in all seriousness, not sure which all tracks will be in it, but I know there will be a 24 hours of the Nurburgring race, so it'll be in there.
