    eh I can wait. Just got forza 4 and my new wheel recently. So lots of racing fun between that and gt5.

    Bought the Zonda R (too lazy to do B spec to win it). Did a couple laps on the nurburgring. Sure is hard to drive. Hit the bumpy curb, you can spin out. Oversteer out of a corner is easy to do as well. Fun though. Second lap got 8:11 :laugh:

    Not a huge deal for me, still so much of the game I got left to beat.

    Thats an idea, I forgot about the Pagani, I will have to save up for it, can it be tuned aswel? Ive got the Buggati upto 1200Bhp and thats rapid.

    True, not long to wait anyway :)


    Im disappointed that there is no Porsche's to buy :(

    Stupid EA hogging the porsche license. Forza used to get away with having them, but not anymore. I didnt tune the Zonda, just drove it stock. I must say im tempted.

    Best way to get money is to do the seasonal events (great xp as well).

    Ah I see why now then, the ad's for Forza 4 look really good, I dont know if I could justify buying a 360 just for that though.

    I usually do the seasonal's, im upto level 24 now, my b-spec is at 4 lol, ive heard you can make it run continuously to get the money coming in in b-spec, not sure if this is true? I have the enzo tuned to max and that massively fast :)

    Yep, live in Minnesota and Redeemed in PSN store on the top right where you redeem codes. Where did you get that code, maybe we each need our own code?

    Hopped in the online dealership, and what was there are cars ive been looking to get for months. Not 1 but 5 RUF cars (modded porsches). So went and bought the whole lot of em. Down prob 750,000 credits. But it was worth it.

    Yeah im going to get the slim model around then. Mine was also a 40gb. I was playing gt5 one day in summer for few hours, it was really hot, the fan was on 100%, so I turned it off to cool a bit, came back a few hours and YLOD :(

    Im going off the veyron fast, cant get it to handle good enough to race and win. If anyone wants to do a swap give me a holla.

    Its not that good of a car for racing simply because it doesnt corner terribly well. Might be able to fix that with some tuning.

    Here's a general page for how to tune:

    Here's a setup for the veyron. They say it turns a bit better now.

    How they got the predator version upto 1256hp I dont know? Mine is running 1196hp, im sure running it in wont give me 60 more horses? I handles abit better with those settings though.

    Jees, surely GT6 would be a good idea for the PS4? By the time GT6 comes out the PS4 will be here anyway.
