G'day drivers

Post by OctarineDream on Fri Nov 06, 2009 9:43 am

hey everyone.
Teeroy (who I've raced with a lot) told me about this group. Looks good - plenty of active members!
So, I started with FM1 on my old xbox, got a 360 and picked up FM2 for $10 and a steering wheel. Just managed to finish that about a week before FM3 came out.
I love the graphics, the cars and the new tracks (even the modified New York) with FM3. The collisions are a bit odd, and sometimes the car tends to get a bit too airborne when clipping a corner. The music isn't as good this time (but I usually turn it off before long either way).
I've always ran manual and simulation tyres/damage/fuel. This time, I've set my difficulty to advanced, so I'm trying to get the hang of racing without traction control (take offs in high power RWD cars are interesting to say the least!). I still need my ABS though.
I started to really get into painting back in FM2 - created a Danger Mouse mini, and a Roger Ramjet Lambo. Also copied an old Hot Wheels car I had onto one of the Buick Regals. I love the ability to create a vinyl group on a canvas with a grid in this one! And the ability to share vinyl groups is great. I created a group "The Punisher" skull which has now been downloaded around 200 times by others around the world. I'm in the process of doing a "Smarties" car at the moment.
I'm also open to requests for designs Smile
I'm pretty crap at tuning - tend to just randomly move stuff around and see what happens, so look forward to seeing other suggestions on that topic.

ok, enough of a ramble. I look forward to racing with you all!

hey all, another Teeroy inducted member *waves*

Still suck at Forza 3, but the new steering wheel makes the game far more enjoyable.

Hey Si,
might see you tonight? for the V8 races.

RU four 86: Did I just read that right? You are modding you real life physical car to be driven via xbox controller? wtf? You on Mythbusters or something?
Smile
Will send you and [Edited] Acerlyte (how do you pronounce that?) a FR now.

I was just laying Forza (as you do when you are meant to be going to work) and saw the fun fact at the bottom "Cars used to not have steering wheels - they were steered with a lever". Heh around in circles we go.

Yeah! I remember Street Rod. Had to beat the guy with the Corvette at the end (was there a Scorpion on the side?).
I was massively into Pitstop II on the C64for a while.
With the Amiga came Indy 500 (for spectacular graphics, crashes and if you had the extra 512k ram - replay!).
