Playing with steering wheel seems so much more fun.

Last time played with keyboard, every keypress makes a sharp turn.

Then swapped to controller, not as bad as keyboard, but still pretty bad.

Sadly no steering wheel for me to play on.
Yup, steering wheel is add fun factor, gamepad is still easier and faster generally and way more couch friendly.

My championship tunes blew up over the weekend! Cleared every tuning accolade over the weekend!

Usually won't get too many downloads since I am an unknown tuner and easy championships players will use whatever cars they have/like and download a tune. The dirt championship is probably harder for many players, so many were willing to buy the cheap M5 and download my tune.

Stupid question,

while using the Forza Tuner, i see that there's this "Redline number" that i need to fill in.

Just want to make sure i'm doing it correctly.

I basically drive on a straight road until my needle reaches the "Red color" zone, then i press "T" to swap to Telemetry, and see my current RPM. The gear itself doesnt matter, Gear 1 or Gear 4, the RPM should be the same as long as the needle is in the red zone?

The tachometer rpm is the same for any gear since it measures engine revolutions. You only need to look at the hud to see the redline zone lower and upper limit and input into the calculator. The numberings are represented in thousands eg. 7 is 7000.

I've noticed since the last patch steering with gamepad has changed. Cars on cornering will auto straighten then turn again. I've retuned these cars to compensate for the understeer.

These cars basically are competitive at Pro difficulty with high grip and top handling, meaning they are guaranteed to beat Expert but winning Pro will depend on the track and luck.

Road/Street
[A] 2020 Toyota GR Supra - 158 163 985
[S1] 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe - 139 851 051

Rally/X-Country
[A] 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X GSR - 180 785 877

Most of the time is the tune, bad tunes will get you nowhere. The lancer tune is actually capable to beat unbeatable on certain dirt/x-country tracks.

I still have ctd issue when loading...o_O need to close some background apps and multiple try before can play

Edit: seems it is the HWiNFO 7.14 causing the crash and hang issue. After uninstalled seems more stable and will continue to monitor the performance.

with RTX on and overall experience was really amazing. :love:
Maybe I'm being too anal, and arguing semantic, but it's not 'RTX on', rather, it should be 'RT on'. RTX is an nVidia trademark for the series of cards bearing the 'RTX' moniker.....just sayin'.;)

Yes, have heard comments that the music in FH5 is not as good as FH4. The intro theme from FH4, A Moment Apart by ODESZA, is just too shiok! (y) I haven't tried FH5 yet....waiting for sale!
