THE CARS
How many cars are there?
Forza 4 has 534 on release day. For a full list refer to this thread by iBuzz7S:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=332573

Why no Porsches?
You can thank EA for that one. EA owns exclusive rights to using them in racing games, in the past they would sell these rights to other games in the form of a sub-license, Forza included. Now however EA has decided to be petty and refused to allow Turn 10 another sub-license. You can show EA how you feel about this by boycotting their games, I sure will be.

What cars will I be gifted when I start the game?
You have to be at least Level 1 in FM3 to import a save file. If you own any of the following cars in FM3 you will be prompted to import them after completing the first race of the game:


2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera
2007 Ferrari F430 Scuderia
2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe
2002 Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Type-A
2006 Subaru Impreza S204
2010 Ferrari 458 Italia
2010 Lexus LF-A
1982 DMC-12 (DeLorean) "Secret Car"

You will also be gifted the following cars based on your FM3 Driver Level:


Level 1 - 2010 Fiat 500 Abarth esseesse
Level 5 - 2009 Ford Focus RS
Level 10 - 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS
Level 15 - 2010 Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro
Level 20 - 2009 Bugatti Veyron 16.4
Level 30 - 2009 BMW #92 Rahal Letterman Racing M3 GTR
Level 40 - 2006 Aston Martin #007 DBR9
Level 50 - 2009 Peugeot #9 Sport Total 908

Can I import more than once?
No, the only time you are allowed to import anything is right after the first race, the one with the 458 and all assists on. If you want to import a second time, to get the unicorn achievement for example, you will have to either delete your save file or move it somewhere else temporarily (like on a USB drive) while you make a new one and import your FM3 profile.

What cars will I get as driver level rewards?

How much exp do I need to gain Affinity Levels? And how much money do I earn at each?
Visit DefEdge's Level and Reward Chart:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=352838

How do I get a Unicorn?
To get a Unicorn you have several options:

1 - Take part in the Pre-Order Incentive Program (No Longer Possible)
http://forzamotorsport.net/en-us/preorder_incentives_program/

2 - Import one or more of the following from your FM3 save file:


2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera
2007 Ferrari F430 Scuderia
1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe
2002 Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Type-A
2006 Subaru Impreza S204

3 - Win one of the many contests (Photo Contests, King of the Track, etc.) that Turn 10 holds throughout the games lifetime. (This is really the only way to get them without importing them)

4 - Buy one in the Auction House. To search specifically for Unicorns click RB in the Auction House to change to the "Unicorns Only" section. (Impossible for anyone with morals, only cheaters have the money to do so)

Which cars are Unicorns?


2002 Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Type-A
2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera
2007 Ferrari F430 Scuderia
2002 BMW M3-GTR "Street Version"
1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe
2003 Ferrari Challenge Stradale
2007 Shelby GT500
2004 Mugen Civic Type-R
2002 Mugen Integra Type-R
2005 Honda NSX-R GT
2007 Lamborghini Murciélago LP640
2006 HKS Time Attack Evolution CT230R
1993 MINE'S R32 Skyline GT-R
2002 MINE'S R34 Skyline GT-R
2004 Top Secret Silvia D1-Spec S15
2006 Subaru Impreza S204
2002 Top Secret 0-300 Supra

EVENTS AND WORLD TOUR

How can I earn lots of money really fast?
Visit this thread by TomTom13G for a way to earn 100,000cR in about 20 minutes:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?p=4590698&posted=1#post4590698

Why aren't races being checked off in the Event List?
In World Tour mode when you show up at a track the game simply checks what car you're in and offers you a race that fits. However, it doesn't check to make sure that race is part of an event on the Event List so you can end up doing a race that as far as the Event List is concerned doesn't exist.

If this bothers you visit this thread by erod550 to see how you can make sure you don't do races that don't count towards the Event List:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=336449

Can I play in Rivals Mode without a Gold LIVE Account?
Yes, but only within Career Mode. In Community Mode you need a Gold account to play Rivals.

How come I never get a clean lap?
Clean laps are almost impossible unless you're the only car on the track. Going off the track (whether cutting corners, sliding off, or even taking a turn too wide), hitting or getting hit by an AI driver, and drafting or getting drafted by an AI driver will all nullify your lap. If you want a clean lap you'll have to do Hot lap under Free Play.

How does the AI difficulty work now?
In previous games difficulty level affected the amount of power the AI cars had. Hard difficulty was a realistic race where the AI cars had no power penalties, the lower difficulties would place power penalties on the AI. This gave Turn 10 a simple way to let people experience an easier race but if you and an AI were driving the same exact car you would blow them away on the straights. This meant races were either too hard, or so easy that you spent most of the race way ahead of everyone.

FM4 does not have any power penalties for the AI. Whether you play on easy or professional you can't out-drag the same car. The difference in AI is now all in the corners; how early they brake, how aggressive they are about the racing line, and how early they get back on the gas. Races are now won in the corners.

World Tour mode does not let you alter the difficulty because it has adaptive difficulty. The better you race the harder the AI fights you. All other races types let you alter difficulty.

Can I still hire a driver?
Yes, at the final menu before you select Start Race the 5th option is Hire Driver. You can't hire a driver for all event types though, autocross for example.

If you choose to hire a driver you will NOT earn any xp from the race itself, you can still earn the xp bonuses after the race. You will also earn far less money as you have to give the hired driver a cut of the winnings.

UPGRADES AND TUNING


How do I get free upgrades?
When you gain Affinity points for a manufacturer and level up you get discounted parts for any cars made by that manufacturer. The rewards for these levels are as follows:

Level 1 - 25% discount + $1000
Level 2 - 50% discount + $2000
Level 3 - 75% discount + $4000
Level 4 - 100% discount + $7000

Additional levels earn you cash rewards.

What upgrades do these discounts apply too?
The discounts apply to all "Engine and Power", "Platform and Handling", "Drivetrain", "Tire Compound", and "Tire Width" upgrades. The discount doesn't apply to "Rim Style", "Rim Size", "Aero and Appearance", or "Conversion" upgrades.

How does Quick Upgrade work?
Quick Upgrade is a feature of the game that will automatically apply upgrades to your car that will optimize it to face the competition. This lets people who aren't comfortable with upgrading let the game take care of it for them.

You can never use Quick Upgrade to lower a car's class but after raising it you can bring it back down again.

Can someone make a tuning setup for me?
zspaun is taking requests in this thread:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=352805

Where can I learn to tune cars myself?

DLC AND MISCELLANEOUS


How do I install Disc 1 and 2?
Disc 1 is installed normally, insert the disc and back out to the dashboard once the game starts loading to install. Then go ahead and download any DLC that you might have and start the game. An intro featuring Jeremy Clarkson will play before you're dropped into a race with all assists on, because you're just that retarded. Now you'll be prompted to import cars and money from FM3, this is your only chance unless you want to go and delete your save file so don't skip it. Once you've done this and picked the car you want to start the game with, back out to the main menu where you'll see the option to install Disc 2 on the right.

How many DLC Packs will there be?
The American Muscle Car Pack is a day one DLC. There will be 6 more DLC Packs, each with 10 cars, released from November 2011 to April 2012, that are included in the Season Pass. All DLC Car Packs cost 560 MSP, individual cars can be bought for 160 MSP. Starting in May there will be monthly car packs that must be bought individually.

Will DLCs have achievements?
Monthly DLC do not have achievements. The Porsche Expansion Pack in May has an addition 250G of achievements.

What is the Season Pass?
The Season Pass is a 2400 MSP DLC that gives buyers access to the American Muscle Car Pack as well as the 6 DLC Car Packs when they're released. The price of the Season Pass breaks down to 400 MSP per pack (this doesn't take the American Muscle Car Pack into account) which is a 30% savings over buying each pack individually.

What are Car Tokens?
If you don't have enough in-game cash to buy a car you can use tokens to buy them. A car will cost between 1 and 3 tokens depending on it's price. Tokens can be bought with real money in the Marketplace.


Single Token - 80 MSP
6 Tokens - 400 MSP
13 Tokens - 800 MSP

After level 4 Affinity of a particular auto manufacturer, you will get 100% discount on all parts for that brand of vehicle. After that you will receive a credit bonus with each affinity level you reach in that brand.


Now, I haven't had issues with them charging me after I got the 100% parts discount, but check this out. I made a tune for a 135i and placed it in my Storefront. Someone bought it, put it on their car, then later took it off. Now, he said he is getting 100% off all his parts. He didn't specify which brands, if its all brands or what. But he sent me a message telling me about it. All I asked him is why he was complaining, lol.

Honestly I don't know, but so far I've had people tell me it's the one and no one say it's a different car so I put it in.

I think it's about as lame of a car as they could have chosen if it really is the one.

You'll still get charged for engine swaps, aspiration swaps, tires, cosmetic alterations, and wheels I believe. But all parts made by the manufacturer are free. (Although in real life, very few companies offer upgrade parts such as intakes, cams, exhausts, save for maybe Scion and Shelby/Saleen.)

3) Shelby Cobra 427
4) Benchmark Test Track Speedway (1st track listed)
5) Race Difficulty - set it up like this;
ABS OFF
Steering Normal
Stability OFF
Traction OFF
Shifting AUTO
Suggested line OFF
Rewind ON
Opponent EASY

Can EASILY do this on the first corner. If you lose a high score, you can rewind and continue it. You can shift left and right once you press A for handbreak to continue the drift. NO TUNING REQUIRED! Use a stock/base Shelby, not from your garage.

Hope this helps at least one person. Trial and error for myself has paid off with this method!

How do you drift with Auto on? Wouldn't it be easier with MT?

Just got to Nissan Affinity Level 4 and checked what parts you do and don't get for free.

The discounts apply to all "Engine and Power", "Platform and Handling", "Drivetrain", "Tire Compound", and "Tire Width" upgrades. The discount doesn't apply to "Rim Style", "Rim Size", "Aero and Appearance", or "Conversion" upgrades.

I'm pretty sure you have to pay for anything involving tires.

Nope. Not with that set up. Go try it and let me know. I never use MT.

As long as your corner entry speed is good and you can manage the steering and throttle then it's really easy. I've never used a manual for drifting, I got the 100,000 drift lap in FM3 with an automatic RS200.

I'm pretty sure you have to pay for anything involving tires.

I went into the upgrade shop and checked every single upgrade available for my 2000GT-R and it said 0cR for Tire Compound and Tire Width.

Ahh, see, I never use AT. Too boring to me. Hell, I can't even keep the car on the track half the time. lol

I can check again next time I play but that's not for two weeks.

If you can confirm that it does make you pay for those upgrades I can make a note of it in the thread.

FAQ; NO legal cars on Race 16 of Season 8

Same thing happens again at Season 8, Race 16.

Need a GT2 car. Which are 1million credits each or 3 tokens.

I had a spare 240M$ points so just bought 3 tokens and bought the BMW GT2 car.

Body model must be GT2

There are no other options at this point, but this one race.

Hope this helps again!

I just went through all 6 pages of threads and updated the FAQ with a good bunch of info.

I'm going to look into the Affinity Levels later tonight to see what exactly I can and can't get for free at Level 4 and report on that then.

I'm not going to be adding every bit of info for the achievements, that's the purpose of the achievement guide.

Also won't be adding the thing about not having valid cars for that one race, because it's beyond obvious what the reason is and frankly you'd have to be brainless not to realize you need to buy a GT2 car, the restrictions menu in the game makes that crystal clear.

You sir, are a dick :)

FAQ: Can I gift my friend the cars to get this achievement?
Answer: Yes


FAQ: What do I need to do when I get the message 'No Legal Cars"?
Answer: Buy a Corvette or later, buy a GT2 model car

I don't see that in your guide? There was 3 threads for the No Legal Cars - that not frequent enough for you? And the Gifting question is very valid. More so then a lot of the stuff you have here.

Its not obvious and you are brain dead to be ignorant. Jealous that I did this and you didn't? :)

Get your head out of your arse. I don't get why you're even here? You aren't going for achievements, meaning your place here is pointless. You aren't playing the game for 2 weeks you said on here, so thats pointless. Go use a dedicated Forza site for stuff like that, here we try to help and you are preventing that with your own personal opinion of what you want in the FAQ.

Deary me and you call me brain dead? Irony...

There are 3 threads because people don't know what a search button is.

The gifting question is valid for the achievement guide, not a general FAQ thread.

As for the rest, I'm not going to reply to something so childish.

But there are threads for 99% of the stuff in the FAQ, why do we need it at all in that case?

Its valid for both, going by your logic. Considering there is achievement talk in the thread - and its a achievement site.

Childish? The irony after you call me braindead...

You're just a walking contradiction tbh :)

Just wanted to point out, SuperSkyline never called you braindead, in fact he was refering to all of those who couldn't figure out that you need a GT2 car to race in a GT2 event, but if you want to put yourself in that category then go ahead.

Besides most of the info covered in the FAQ is generalised, the finer details are either in the achievement guide of discussion thread. We don't need every single question answered when most of the time the answer can be found by using the search button or trying trial and error for yourself in game before running to this site.

If you can't handle the volume of useless threads then perhaps you should leave, (that's one of the reasons i don't come here too often anymore)

Can I still hire a driver?
Yes, at the final menu before you select Start Race the 5th option is Hire Driver. You can't hire a driver for all event types though, autocross for example.

If you choose to hire a driver you will NOT earn any xp from the race itself, you can still earn the xp bonuses after the race. You will also earn far less money as you have to give the hired driver a cut of the winnings.




Do you still get affinity xp for the manufacturer?

Affinity is XP, and you earn non through the hiring of a driver. You will get some Affinity if the race gives a bonus to Affinity like "Affinity + 1000", you would get the 1000 only.

Honestly I don't know, but so far I've had people tell me it's the one and no one say it's a different car so I put it in.

I think it's about as lame of a car as they could have chosen if it really is the one.

The reason it's a secret car is that when Turn 10 released a list of the bonus cars you can import from your Forza 3 save there was one car they didn't list, instead, they put it up as "secret car". Basically it's the same as a secret achievement, you get it in the same way as a normal one, but you don't know what it is until you get it.

The 30% savings on the Season Pass are based on the monthly DLC starting with the November Speed Pack. None of the other packs are considered in that figure.

If I by the season pass I will receive all the cars of all six DLC in the Garage or I will need to by them with credits or tokens.

Tanks in advance your your answer.

For the Career Garage, you must buy them with credits/tokens. However, if you are using them in the arcade modes, like rivals, free play, online, etc, you get them for free, but can't tune them.

Keep in mind that you don't have to buy ANY car with tokens, ever. You would only want to do that if you don't have enough in game cash and you REALLY want the car. Personally, I'd never want to buy one with tokens.

OK tank you for your answer.I am a racing maniac and I just bot the xbox just for this game.

I play on PS3 the gran turismo and I want to try the forza,but I find this kind of stupid to pay about 30 euros for a Dlc and to have to bay the cars in career.
For the every game I own on Ps3 and I boot the dlc you receive every thing in the garage.

I always like to support something that I like,I bout the xbox for this game and I paid for the gold membership but this with the dlc is unacceptable for my.

Tanks again for your answer.

DefEdge
01-23-2012, 09:17 PM
I understand how you feel. You'd think that by paying money for the DLC you'd get the cars to use for free, but no chance. At least we can use them in the arcade modes though. Problem is, most of the arcade modes allow you to use whatever car you want, meaning career cars that you've upgraded and tuned. The only ones that won't allow you to do that is rival modes that force a stock set up.

I wouldn't hold my breath. When they gift a car they filter out the people that don't have VIP and send it to the ones that do. If you didn't have VIP at time of gifting you would have been filtered out. The only way you'd be gifted a car is if you're VIP when they're sending them out.

Kinda ashamed to ask this, but...

Where can I find the DeLorean? :confused:
I just got one from the auction deal. It's a piece of cr** but I did get it to 88mph. If u still want one I'll gift it to you but you'll have to tell me how.

I' online with my Forza alot so if you are still looking maybe we can work something out. my gamertag is the same: judogrrl and XBA people I'm sorry I didn't realize that I was violating policy with my offer...it won't happen again and I should have checked before before I posted
