Cars that I have used so far.


Road Atlanta, the car had really high rear end, and really low front end, widest possible street tires on back and stock on front. and whole lot of power.


the one unofficial extension of that same day, "lowrider" look, and more power... even hockenheim's long almost straight wasn't straight enough, (~270km/h on picture)that was almost uncontrollable


RX-7 at suzuka


Euro hatchbacks on Hockenheim,


-57 Bel Air on Road America


GMC Syclone On SUV's at Maple valley


Mustang Cobra R, at Catalunya


"Shelby Memorial" Dodge Shelby Omni GLHS at Motegi week from Carrol Shelby's passing away.
GHLS = Goes like hell som'more... well at last it burned rubber on +200kmh speeds... it really goes like hell :twisted:

As promised, here is my beloved '97 Volvo 850 R! I'd love to run it at a future track day, although it isn't as quick as it could be at just C|425.

And whilst I am posting here, I may as well show you all my newly built '03 SEAT Leon R. Pretty damn quick at B|500, and makes a sweet sound with a sport exhaust system installed. Also finished in a rather outlandish bright green to turn heads. Wink

In relation to the images of the Seat Leon R I posted earlier, does anybody know why they have such a massive exhaust pipe!? Big Smile

Also, Aphid, you'll find something to run this weekend. You always do! Smile

As tuners install those huge fart cannons to their cars, cause "it's sexy". Manufacturers try to copy them... so they wouldn't have to, cause it's "sexy" straight from factory... just on the limit of good taste of course...

And I will find a car... the problem is.. I build trackday cars faster than we have trackdays Big Smile

Ah, now I understand, thanks! I don't think it looks bad on the SEAT at all, though I imagine it would on a Clio or something like that. Tongue Out I also tend to build track day cars more often than events take place. Actually, at the moment is has become quite excessive, with me building an average of 4-5 cars per day! Big Smile

I always try to make them look how I would imagine it would look if I had the car in real-life too. Stick on some sponsor decals and a licence plate, and a racing number, and you're all set!

Yeah, I know that feeling! And the black plastic parts on some cars is annoying too. With cars like that I just find a place elsewhere to put the plate, usually next to the brake light, or hopefully there is an option to remove the chrome bumper. Smile

Just take a look at that -57 bel air... there is absolutely no way how you could place a license plate on that. Sad

Indeed. It's a lose, lose situation it seems. Neutral It's a shame, but hopefully they'll let us paint over chrome and plastic in Forza 5... Or just include an option to add a proper licence plate to your car.

So I decided the Virage isn't going to be fun enough as, oh say a supercharged Mustang!

This, is Night Mare. She's a 2000 Cobra R that I've made look more like a regular 2000 Mustang GT and have given her a supercharger, fatter tires, and various other things. She's a bit of a handful, but that's where the fun is.

What did you do to that Mk2!? Tongue Out I've got a nice Mk2 and it doesn't do that! Smile

Also, I've got a really nice Yaris, which is not everyone's idea of a 'track day' car, which I will post some images of tommorow if I get time. I like it so much, that it made it onto my profile information to the left of my post. Big Smile

I'm not quite sure, but I'd suspect that it has...
-medium ride height,
-somewhat soft front suspension and stiffer rear suspension,
-really soft front anti roll bar, and really stiff rear anti roll bar

That would cause that effect, same I had on my MK 2 escort but opposite, it lifted the front tire.

Here is pic from really soft suspension on max height, and really stiff front anti roll bar, and really soft rear anti roll bar... on jeep... (yes silly tune again)
