Twisted Time Trials #1

It's never straight forward with me.....

Welcome to my 1st TWISTED TT. With the absence of weather conditions from FM5, I've tried to emulate snow /heavy rain driving through tuning.

This is not a drift car. This is not a track car. It's awfully twitchy, awfully unpredictable, has 900+ bhp anf 500+ lb ft, RWD, and generally hopeless around tracks. This is not a GARY build.

The track...

Spa. Circuit de Franco_£^$# something.

The car:

The Tune..


Search for, "FMUK Snow Emulation"

TT will close in 2 weeks. Sunday 9th February, 23:59.
If someone has one of those fancy google spreadsheets, feel free to point me to it

I would love to gift the winner a car, but, the less said about that the better

Quick question - that is the normal Gallardo isn't it? rather than the Day One version (which turned into the Day Sixty-Four code for me).

Thanks for the effort, I just think it's a bit out of the ordinary. If it was something a bit more straightforward I would have set some times already.

Just to check (again!) on the Gallardo LM. I see a Gallardo LP570 and a Gallardo FM - and it's a real pain that you can't look for tunes now without owning the car.

And I've moved it to the FM5 section since I assume you haven't managed to create Spa on FM4.

Had a go last night. It didn't drive as badly as I'd been expecting, but I wasn't that quick in it either.

In many respects yes, although the best bit was being able to take a supercar out on track without 15 different drivatars trying to take lumps out of it.

The main characteristic which struck me about it wasn't so much the brakes (although it did feel as if the rear end wanted to come around under braking), but the way it always felt like it was hunting for a line down the straights. To be honest, that bit was a tad annoying.

Another strange thing was that it didn't feel that overpowered either... I must be losing my Forza sanity
