Should any of you guys kick off another series Rolex Gt or even a Mazda spec series please count me in. I've had a good time building and driving with everyone. Yeh I was pondering whether to return to AI Class or drive something faster and newer in AIX. I think what's most important is to keep within the class or series that most of you guys populate so I can have some competition. If I can contribute help to keeping it all going just ask. Not a great IT guy like Simick (thanks for the cool forum) but I can test and drive setups do some graphics or paints (sorry no JDM paints)

Thats great Capn but I know Tux has been workin rather diligently lately to get all the cars as close to identical as you possibly can in a Forza multi brand spec series so I believe he plans on gifting you the exact build and from there you cant change parts but you may tune the build to your personal preferences. Which is great for us cause now we no longer have to spend 45 minutes punching numbers in a calculator trying to finagle 3 more hp without shedding or gaining any weight! Less work and more play for the drivers!

Yes, what Squid said is correct. I will have the build locked, but you can tune it. Have no fear, these cars will be fun to drive.

As long as I can keep my paint job.... and it's the RX-8 R3 lol

...and right now my RX-8 is like 2500 lbs, 370 odd HP with a top speed of 177 MPH (top speed I know for sure) as I tried to keep it close to the actual GT rules/regs

Thanks Harlen. I hope everyone is happy with the choices. Still not finalized on all of them. The RX-8 will be the R3 version which requires the DLC pack. I won't release the built yet though. I will finish them up and post them as soon as possible. I have been busy as of late. This damn A.I. series is taking up all of my time, what a joke!

What are the choices? Besides the RX-8 R3? And we'll be able to do our own paint right?

From what i remember the GT class has RX8s, Corvettes, Canaros, 911 GT3, Challengers which look like theyre being replaced by the viper and the m3. Maybe more but thats what i recall

Yea aside from the Challenger you will see a full field of the regular GT class cars along with the likes of the Viper and a few others giving the choice of around a Dozen or so give or take a car or two. Although I havent gotten much more info then the rest of you out of Tux as of yet... Hes so secretive aint he? Just what is he hiding from us haha. I am curious if we might see any Australian cars in the options??? That 2011 Holden with the stroker small block and not the Big Block that I prefer calling it but was yelled at for doing so lol! is a mean car and a top 5 best sounding car in FM4 if you ask me... Plus it handles amazingly! Id be interested in driving on the wrong side of the car if given the chance but I think he isnt including the Holden/Vauxall cars. Never say never........ Until the steward says FU and never. Then I suppose you have to say never

Please don't over-hype this. lol! I don't want anyone to be disappointed. I really don't want to release a full list yet because I want to make sure the cars are competitive. I'm 95% sure that I'm done cutting. I've been very busy this week which is why I haven't released it yet. No worries guys, we've got plenty of American Iron left. I have the choices narrowed to 13 cars. I'll give you this much:
4 American
2 Italian
3 Japanese
3 German
1 British

Subject to change.

Yes, you can do your own paint. I'll request a few logos on certain areas of the car, but I'll be lenient.

Ooooh...can we guess???


Ford Mustang GT500
Chevrolet Corvette
Chevrolet Camaro
Dodge Viper

Ferrari F430

Mazda RX8
Nissan 370Z
Infiniti G37

BMW M3
Audi R8?
Ruf?

Then there was one...either...
Aston Martin V12 Vantage
or
Jaguar XKR

Yea I suppose we should let the info come when it comes so as not to over speculate and make false assumptions... We nerds are terrible at refraining from such acts though! LOL. Look at any fan forums for proof to that! Also best we give American Iron all the attention it deserves on center stage while we still have a few singles to toss up and let Tuxs stripper warm up on the side stage until its time to take the main. I must say though that I doubt I will be able to get much tuning in for the rest of the season while I, James-117 Shepherd, will be out kicking so much Reaper and Cerberus ass. You know its a tough call, save the universe or make sure my car is a half second faster..... What to do, what to do scratch

Normal aspiration only. And freaking Forza won't let us install different engines without tricks.

It'd be nice if they did let us do more with the engines (swap more and different, takin' off turbo/superchargers of motors that come with it, etc) because there's so many more tweaks and power options... and sometimes I think it'd make it easier on us lol

For me, I need all 12 cars in my garage. Going to be tuff to choose "your car" by branding or appearance. I need to feel each car thru the gears. Sometimes I like a car to skid sometimes not.
Am I an American or am I an exotic European..... I believe all will have a well prepared chassis. Please gift all 12 I can return them after a few hundred scratch free miles. Try to not burn up the clutch or damage gearbox. Promise to keep below rev limiter Very Happy

I'm with Harlen on this one. I think I might need to be givted if not cars then at least tunes so I can really decide if a rotary is the way to go...knowing that an Aston will be running throws a wrench in my plan!
