Does anyone else think the superstars series would be a great one to try and recreate? Most of the cars that run it are available on forza and whats not to love about large saloon cars with even larger engines roaring round tracks at high speeds?

heres a taster




ATTENTION Sign-ups for this series are live. Visit http://neinshiza.the-talk.net/ to find out more

I have reviewed some cars and decided that there would be no need to restrict the series to v8 engined machines, and after building a few potential cars to around 670pi, here is a list of cars so far that i think could enter.

06 Audi RS4
10 Acura TSX V6
10 Aston rapide
08 BMW M3
09 BMW M5
12 BMW M5
09 Cadillac CTSV
08 Chrysler 300c SRT-8
12 Dodge Charger SRT-8
10 Ford Taurus SHO
10 Ford Fusion sport
11 Holden HSV GTS
10 Jaguar XFR
09 Lexus ISF
10 Mercedes C63 AMG
07 Nissan Sentra
09 Pontiac G8 GX8
10 Vauxhall Insignia VXR
11 Volvo S60R

So enough cars to make up a decent and varied grid. dont know whether to do spec builds or just give a set of rules. any suggestions would be great.

me and warpig were thinking about doing something like this.what i was trying to do was build these cars in the 500 to 600 hp range and only include the full size sedans like the m5 and the cts,if there was enough interest in the series i would make it happen

I know this is kinda late but I would love to do this. When I decided that I wanted to start racing in leagues a V8 supercar series was the first thing I looked for.

I'm glad this got a bump. I forgot about it and I won't lie. At first I wasn't excited who it it but after watching the video this could be a fun little series. I wouldn't run full time but I would definitely run if I had the time on race day that week.

Also, why do all the cars in the video sound like they have a massive 4 litre surcharger screaming under the hood?

You know I will help. I bet these cars are a handful to take around a track. Should make for an interesting series.

I took a look at the RS4 in the club garage and built one based off of the info I could see from there. I'm within 2 pounds and 2 hp. This thing is a blast. I can imagine a bunch of these sedans roaring around the track together. It would be intense.

also what you could do is make it one car with specific specs so all it comes down to is skill at tuning and driving

Those Audi's and Merc's were lookin BAD, dude. Would definitely drive one of em if this were to happen.

PS: They sound amazing too, especially the white Merc at 2:24 on the Great Noise vid.

They do sound mean. I love the deep exhaust tone. Does anyone know if they run massive blowers? They all sound surcharged as they come straight at the camera.

I thought that could be it too. Those spur cut gears can scream. Reminds me of a centrifugal supercharger.
