    Bring your best B class Fords.

    There will be no other restrictions apart from the car make must be 'Ford' and models must be tuned up to a maximum of B500.

    It's advisable to prepare a selection of cars. Tracks will be varied.

    Storefront tunes welcome. Custom liveries encouraged, storefront or your own.

    All driving assists will be allowed.

    Normal AVF race-night policy applies, eg - no deliberate contact tolerated, if someone does hit you, give them the benefit of the doubt. No relatiation or 'payback' allowed. If you hit someone and they go off, let them regain their place infront of you. Play nice basically :)

    New players of all skill levels welcome as well as all the old chestnuts. Best to send me a friends request. Mention AVF in your message or let me know on here.

    Register your interest in this thread!

    Here's a selection of the sorts of cars suitable:

    will put my name down, but doubt i will be able to play unless my NAT issue is sorted :(

    will anyone be on Forza tonight? if so, could you send me an invite to a private lobby to see if i can join you? just to see if i can join anyone's lobbys or if i can't get a game anywhere?

    I'm sure you'll be fine next time. These things seem to be random in my experience. The lobby locked up for all of us a couple of times last night.

    In halo online for example, my NAT is sometimes closed, moderate or normal and i never mess with the settings at all. weird.

    Sorry Nick, I won't be committing to anymore race nights until I have my brake issue resolved. Sent various videos highlighting the problem to Fanatec last night, so hoping for a speedy resolution from them.

    Hope it all gets sorted soon seb, is a bu99er when things break. My wheel is now gathering dust in the spare room :(

    I'm off work today so will have a look in the garage to see what cars are on offer. Should be some interesting tuning choices :)

    there is a rivals mode time attack (infineon) for b spec rwd cars that is a good way of getting affinity up for ford. Tuning is expensive without it!

    Do you know what level you need to be for parts to be free?

    Is the RS200 on there? If so I may tune one of those up for this, although I prefer RWD the only option is to do a drivetrain conversion or use a slow/heavy Mustang.

    How many of you chaps use a steering wheel setup? I'm still using the pad as I never got on with the wheels.

    The RS200 isnt B class unfortunately.

    The MKII escort 1800 is available via DLC. I'll be using that at some stage :)

    I use a wheel and pedals btw - a Fanatec Porshe Turbo S with CSR Elite pedals.

    RS200 is S class :(

    I've just purchased the RS1800 on the hope it tunes like a beast, bit of a gamble as it cost me actual ms points *grumble grumble*

    The MKII is good for handling tracks also has a great revvy engine.

    Quite nice with a AWD swop aswell :blush:

    Put me down provisionally...I found it hard to choose Forza over Skyrim last night, so played Skyrim... how antisocial am I! I wonder how a B Class Fiesta will handle...

    I have a business meeting in Amsterdam on Tuesday, flying out at 6:30am and my flight back doesn't get back into the UK until half 4 in the pm...then I have to drive back to East Yorks from Manchester airport, hence putting me down provisionally because I could be knackered.
