July DLC Discussion Thread

Post by BiggLou55 on Fri Jun 22, 2012 2:10 pm

Johniwanna has a July DLC thread up (like) June giving hints for the cars in the DLC.... http://forums.forzamotorsport.net/forums/thread/5518081.aspx

First hint is "Porky's"

Guess are the Hudson Hornet, Jag XK 120 and I just threw in the Ford F-1 for giggles!! Very Happy

I like the guessing thing... Makes it fun! Very Happy

my money would be on the Jag. Based on last 2 DLC's having the Healey, then the MG...another Euro 2 seater convertible would fit in well.

I can't wait to drive the ascari, it should be a blast. I already have a design that I am going to put on the MP4-12C GT3 Very Happy

the one problem I have with the BRZ is that it goes 0-60 in 7.1 seconds... thats not exactly what you would call quick...

It's a real world daily driver.... I subscribe to the following philosophy....

On public roads..... It more fun to drive a slower car fast, than to be forced to drive a faster car slow...!

The BRZ fits my description of the perfect car for me (in reality).
  • Decent gas mileage? CHECK
  • Fun to drive? CHECK
  • Decent performance? CHECK
  • Could do a track day? CHECK
  • Can fit two booster seats in back? CHECK
  • Comes with SATNAV, Bluetooth, Automatic Climate control, Limited Slip, TCS, Sat Radio? CHECK
  • Costs less that $30k USD? CHECK
  • It comes in White, Silver or Black? CHECK
  • It does or will have a very active aftermarket? CHECK


You could argue the WRX (AWD), the GTI (FWD) and a few others, but none offer the features and the performance together under $30k USD....

I would also love to have a Mustang GT with the new 5.0 Coyote, but that is a lot of car AND it's more than $30k USD similarly equipped!

not saying that I don't like the BRZ, I know that it was meant to be somewhat like a miata, but it just looks so cool and would be fun to drive. just saying it could use some more horsepower (hopefully what we will see with the STI)

OMG - The MP4-12C GT racer is friggin AWESOME!!! I was able to take the stock version out and hang with R3 800 tuned cars.... This is top on my list for upgrading and tuning... I want to see what I can do with only non-power mods and tuning with this thing as well as getting it up to R3800... I'm just afraid that adding power might ruin the balance of this thing... I will share what I find with the club!

This is, by far, the best DLC they've put out...! If you haven't grabbed it, please do... Very Happy

Lou, I would really appreciate it if you send me your tune when it is finished. I would like to pair it up with my Hexis racing replica and upload it to the garage

Yeah dude that mp4-12c is freaking sweet! I took it out for a stock test on the rivals event and I found myself lapping more than 3 laps on silverstone. So much so that I ran like 15 or so laps and managed a pretty sweet LB time. I know there's tons more improvement but I had to leave for my niece's birthday party.

I found myself really enjoying cockpit view/hood view in that car for some reason. Now that I think about it, I like the restricted view of the purpose built racers for some reason.

"... tons more improvement" he says! I'm something like 3 sec slower than you on that event and actually pretty chuffed with my time Very Happy

I watched your replay, Mark. Switched to cockpit view and kept going around and around and around with you - what fun! Like watching a good qualifying lap onboard in F1. That's a sweet lap. I can't understand how you manage to maintain the speed you do through some of those corners.

I look forward to watching the replay when you go even faster ...
