Germany v Japan - AWD Night
Wednesday 4th January, 9pm



To kick off the new year, on Wednesday I will be hosting a race night featuring four AWD cars; from Germany the Audi RS3 and VW Golf R face off against the Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi Lancer Evo from Japan.

THE CARS:
2011 Audi RS3 Sportback; B482 (DLC car)
2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X GSR; B476
2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STi; B484.....or.....2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STi; B481 (Pre-order bonus car)
2010 Volkswagen Golf R; B466

UPGRADES:
Cars must be upgraded up to A600 or just below.

The following mandatory upgrades are required:

- Race Brakes, Race Suspension, Race Anti-roll bar front and rear, Race roll cage, Full Race weight Reduction.
- Race clutch, Race transmission, Race driveline, Race Differential.
- Race tyre compound.
- Forza Motorsport adjustable front and rear wing.

Engine upgrades and other modifications such as tyre width upgrades, replacement alloy wheels, bonnets, sideskirts, etc...are entirely optional as long as the car remains at or below A600.

Cars must remain AWD - no drivetrain swaps.

No storefront tunes please.

LIVERIES:
As always race liveries are most welcome, either from the storefront or homemade.

ASSISTS:
Due to the forgiving nature of AWD cars, TCS, STM and ABS will be turned off.

This is a casual race night and hence, entrants can switch between any of the cars during the night.

If you wish to take part please sign up below. :hiya:

I've got a soft spot for the Scooby. It's strange because I really hated the hatchback redesign when it first came out, but now I love it. I'm glad there is a saloon model too, although I don't know if anyone else has it because it was my GAME pre-order car.

I'm struggling to get my car setup, I'm using the Audi RS3 and have it at A600 but don't feel it's setup properly. I've just done a few laps of Catalunya and can't get any quicker than 2m03.867 which at least a second slower than my quickest RWD time in A class. We'll see what happens on the night.

It doesn't really matter to be fair, it's how the car matches up to the other three. From my testing with all four they are very close (or at least how my cars are set up anyway), as all four have a similar PI to start with.

You will need to send me a friend request if you could please, thanks.

Just got 2.01.2 round Cat in my Audi RS3.

I will stick my tune on my storefront for free and you can try it if you like :)

I won't be taking part J, something is very broken with my game / pedals / wheel.

I'm having the same problems I had during the last online meet. I'm getting full brake force about a 1/4 way through the pedal travel and wheels are locking up. I'm experiencing this in offline races too. Starts off fine, and then goes to pot during the race.

I've tried F1 2010 and GT5 and everything is working as it should. i've never updated the firmware for the wheel, but I don't have a PC now so can't even try that!

Very frustrated with this:mad:

Thanks Nick appreciate it! I used the Forzatune app for the iPhone but it's a bit out of date now.

Seb, i take it your already turning the xbox on with the pad and then starting the wheel once the game has started (and the pad has been turned off)

there was some problems with the xbox recognising the fanatecs at first.

I start everything with a Harmony remote mate, and then turn the wheel on at the menus.

You'll shave some time off without either, I can assure you of that.

You'll be fine in an AWD car. The car sticks to the road like glue. It's quicker, trust me. TCS just bogs the car down a little.

Here's my weapons for the night.

The Audi turned out to be the slowest round Catalunya for me.

Did a dirty 1.59.8 in the 2008 WRX, my time on the leaderboard is the wrong car but is about as quick if anyone wants to compare their cars.

I went for a max handling build on all the 4 cars.
