TORA American Iron UK General Discussion

Post by Flyin Mikey J on Wed 6 Jan 2016 - 0:36



Welcome to the inaugural Forza Motorsport 6 running of the TORA American Iron UK series

This series, first run on Forza Motorsport 4, features a wide array of US Muscle Cars produced between the years 1964 and 1999, and balanced to produce some very close racing between some rather diverse machines. The builds are limited to naturally aspirated V8 engines, rear wheel drive, with race tires, race brakes and full rollcages, but are otherwise open for you to build to your driving style and may be rebuilt to maximize performance on the wide array of circuits throughout the series.

Hope to see you on track!

I have shared builds for (almost?) every car on the list, all upgraded but in default trim. If you're having a hard time choosing a car, you may want to see how they feel before making a choice.

I've "heard" of some 2.16's, my current best is a low 2:19, and many are in the 2:20/2:21s.

How are people doing on fuel mileage? Because I'll be totally honest in that i might need to 2-stop a 45 minute race in my current car...

Oh, also, I assume we're running 'Simulation' fuel & Damage, the rules say limited but there doesn't seem to be that option any more.

First off, thanks for the Limited damage whoops info. I will fix that as indeed it is Simulation.

And the race distance has been based off one stop for every car as in 17 Laps at Sebring. The worst fuel run I'd done or heard of in testing was 9 laps. The best run I'd seen was just at 12.

Some races however will see two stops needed. Daytona being an example of that.

Cool, cheers - and I can confirm a 9-lap stint as the best I've managed to get out of the 'cuda so far Smile I think it's a combination of the weight and wide tyres compared to the others cars we've tested.

There's a few cars at that fuel range. And a few that get better economy. We're testing both ends to get as fair a middle as we can for lap counts.

Better than an early lag out. Crying or Very sad

But can say those few laps were amazing.

The XBL chat system is an issue that is hard to work around, unless we have 12 max in a lobby to utilize party chat. That makes some things a pain, and is why I like to have someone repeat instructions in hopes that between two or three of us, everyone can hear someone.

Lagging out early was a bit heartbreaking, but the racing was good while it lasted.

Sorry but the Laguna Seca round of American Iron UK has been postponed due to massive XBL connectivity issues.

This is the week for any car changes among those who have actually competed a round. There is a 50 Driver Point penalty for this change, however after next race, that penalty will be all Driver Points accumulated.

I'd like to apply for a change to this week's results - I finished above Fazed intro, but only because he got punted off by the AI driver of an already-finished car, so I'd request that our finishing positions be switched back so he's ahead of me.
