I love the paint job. Its much better then my simple black and blue two tone. As for crashing im hopping the same thing. The curb making a left after the u turn flips me a lot in my other cars. I havn't had the problem to much with my gt though.

Hmmm. Pretty good rendition. But you might wanna actually drive the same way as the track and AVOID the walls! Shocked

Same thing, when i'm pushing it i usually end up either kissing the wall or flipping because i dared to touch the rumble zone. A flatter wider car like a gt probably has less of that problem. I guess i'll just go safe and go slower there.

Check your rebound. it may be set to high. Try to lower your rebound, maybe up your bound. This will help eliminate some of that curb jump syndrome.

Ya, I chose the gt because I knew it would be a nice stable platform to use.

I know its not my forza car, but I'd figure I'd post up what I was messing with in real life...my beloved RX-7...hence the name Red Rotor Very Happy
pushing it up to the gas pump...didn't feel like turning on and turning back off for like 15 feet lol







Here is a link to it idling...I would post other links to racing, but it's not the legal kind lol...keep safe, keep it legal.

Nice RX-7 . I have a good friend that has a midnight blue one. Although his is set up for track duty and the thing handles like a go cart. We have had some great races him and I at a few tracks here in Las Vegas and in Cali. Here is my M3 (notice the #)

don't have many pictures at the moment, because the car isn't sitting out in my garage,but i have these old pictures

this one my best friend (who's in the Marine's right now) made himself this tailgate , that he was so proud of, and i was the one to inform him it was misspelled, lol this was my ransom picture in high school, it said
"i have your tailgate at sonic unless you want it back you should buy me lunch lol."


this one was taken at my old house, i miss the quietness out there, it was awesome, middle of nowhere, everyone around was nice to one another ( just about ) and people didn't care about every minor detail of what you were doing.

Nice M3, funny thing is that was the other car I was debating on getting except e36 since the e46 was out of my price range 6 years ago when I bought the 7. I use to autocross a lot with it, but the desire for more power bit me (that's what happens when you have a bunch of V8 fanatics for friends lol) and would basically throw me into a ridiculous class that would lead my car to basically a track purpose vehicle only to be competitive. I was born and raised in bimmers and anything german basically, but when I test drove an RX-7...I was hooked, it was like a go cart on steroids plus the engine was very interesting to me. Its funny because my I'm the only rotary in my group of friends all the others are LS boys (highly modded 6.0 gtos, C6 vettes, C5 Z06's, Formulas), 2jz fanatics (the japanese muscle), or blue oval boys (Gt500's and turbo mustang gt's).

edit...is that a supercharger I see? Is it active autowerks or VF engineering?

Yeah, I was a huge Mustang fan. The turn for me came when I drove a students E36 M3 and I was surprised by how a car with 1/2 the power my (heavily Modified) 98 Mustang Cobra had was able to turn faster laps the first time I drove it. I traded my Cobra in a month later to buy the red 99 M3.

As for the supercharger it is neither. It's Dinan. When I bought the exhaust system and intake the salesman gave me the advantages of having the supercharger to go with the engine management system i had to get when I bought the exhaust and intake. My E46 M has fully adjustable coil overs, Brembo big brake package, and the above mentioned mods. I just sold the 99 M just before last Christmas and am about to most likely sell the E46 to get either a new E92 M3 or a Porsche. If I get a Porsche I will most likely go with one no more than 3 years old. That way I can get one I want and avoid the dealer new 6figure cost.

Even though its the middle of the season, we've learned from various sources the driver known as Red Rotor has been testing a new car for next seasons races. We have an exclusive photo of the test vehicle, but due to the high secrecy of the test prototype the photographer was tackled by security and his camera was basically destroyed before he could upload great quality photos. We were able to get a hold of one photo of the vehicle, it appears this picture was taken as the photographer was being tackled. We'll try to catch up to Red Rotor to confirm this news.

Vette looks good. Looks like your going away from the "factory" team look. With the camo I guess you are getting ready for battle at Catalunya huh!

Secret spy shots huh...I have inside sources and I could "leak" said car info but I will keep the confidentiality of it all.

i'm not going to mention anything either, but i may or may not have been the one to tackle the photographer

ROTOR AGAIN using a bad wing on that car lol, make sure IF you do use it it has the correct wing

O its the proper wing, I made sure of that this time...I need to extract every thousandth of a second on the new "test mule" to be competitive with the current "work horse" lol

ummmmmm... maybe?! lmao

i was tired of the yellow, i'm not a yellow type of person, so i had to change it, and i thought, hey lets try something radical and different, so i chose, desert camo,.... I am thinking about reversing it thought, camo in the center, and black details, idk.

but i would rather spend time tuning and readying up for Catalunya then painting, cause if i can make my laps consistent, then you better watch out Predator, cause i WILL be all up in your mirror! Twisted Evil

Either way, I'm digging the camo look. It's not over the top, but definitely makes a statement.

We have another source that took pictures on Red Rotor's "test vehicle"...unfortunately the team is keeping this vehicle under wraps and security is on point and doing their jobs by keep good photos of the test vehicle from surfacing. Word has it that Red Rotor is testing close to the same setup on his personal vehicle.

If its the same car as the other picture then I don't think so as the wing looks wrong. But I could be wrong.

After bribing the security with a substantial amount of money, our photographer was able to get clear shots of Red Rotor's possible "weapon of choice" for next season. We use the word "possible" because although it was seen testing, it was not adorned with the team design.
