Of course I would be using audi in every race possible which is over 90% of them.

I love Forza but I can only race on the same track so often until it becomes a complete grind. Plus I have a half dozen games on my to-do list so I would like to get the 1000GS in Forza as quick as possible.
I doubt you would get near lvl 50, but it will help.

My advice is to make sure you turn off the class restriction when you tackle the event list. That small change will help you burn through the event list quicker since you can utilize the faster race cars in many races. Also makes it easier to have a valid car without having to buy another or tune down one of your existing cars.

If you need to boost manufacturer affinity still after unlocking all the other achievements, maybe you could set up an unattended oval race. Private online race w/ one AI, 50+ laps of a suitable oval track, put rubber band around the throttle (and steering if needed), maybe turn on all the assists. I'm not sure if it would work. But it is a strategy I used back in GT3 days to boost credits.

Edit: It does work, but gave me zero credits. Must be the game's anti-cheat system.

Nice guide, I would perhaps add to it that using the auction house for the most expensive cars can save you a fair bit..

I got my Shelby Cobra Daytona for about 1mill creds, my 250GTO for just under 7mill. meaning for them wanting the achievement its well worth checking the auction house.. (those 2 cars is a saving of 7mill straight away...showing how the Auction house can really help)

Question: I plan on on getting both the 'factory driver' and the' bucket list' achievements. I will be using the backup driver for all races that don't allow Audi's (since its my affinity car).

Now once I get these achievements will I have enough credits to buy all the cars needed for the 'Ferrari collector' and 'exclusive taste' achievements assuming I don't buy anything else?

These are the only achievements I'm worried about and while I am using the auction house most cars don't sell for much under the retail price anyways.

Oh, and will the 'forza world tourer' achievement still unlock by the time I finish the event list even if I use a backup driver for a lot of the races?

Thanks to anyone that can help.

Probably not, but if you get some good deals on the AH, you might.

Hiring a driver doesn't affect this achievement, however, you won't unlock World Tourer just by completing the Event List. There are a few tracks that don't show up. Do a search for World Tourer here to find a list. I'm not trying to be rude, I'm just not sure right now which tracks they are and I don't want to give you bad info.

You'll have to do every track except the Test Track layouts. You also have to do all the drag strip layouts and I don't think those are on the event list. Some reverse tracks probably aren't there either.

What I did is make an Excel sheet with all the tracks on it and just marked them off as I did them to keep track. I'd suggest doing something like that as you work on the event list (or just do them in online custom race, that's what I did) so you know what's left over at the end.

Thanks for the info guys. Cleared a few things up for me.

RWD with 400-500hp. Cars with short wheelbases are easier to get drifting but longer ones are more stable and easier to hold in a drift.

Try the current generation BMW M3 and the w427 Monaro. Do it on one of the Test Track layouts, you have tons of room and literally every corner is capable of a 10,000+ point drift.

Ultima GTR- (probably set for top speed for oval racing- no wing) on the test track speedway. 1 (sometimes 2) perfect drifts per lap.

250+mph drifting, half way through the turn. It was super easy.

I can't drift at all! I ended up getting all the drifting badges failing at getting a LB time at ovals. (got my first one for the achievement, with the Shelby cobra, same track, took me a bit though as described somewhere here in the forum, probably this thread)

Thank you everyone for your positive feedback over the past couple of months.

To tell you the truth, and I am embarrassed to say this... I completely forgot I was the once that submitted this guide to X360A.

A friend of mine actually said to me, "Dude, you posted the achievement guide for Forza 4 on X360A?"

After I checked it out, and saw that I made it to the front page (where achievement list, and achievement guide are located) I was surprised.

I have not had the time to read everyone's feedback on my guide, although I did browse a few of them and they were mostly positive and somewhat helpful.

---------

I have made a few (long overdue) edits to this achievement guide (including how to get the Factory Driver achievement very easily). At the time of writing this I was only worried about finishing this game as fast as I could, and beating everyone else to having a submitted guide on the site.

I figured it was my way of giving back to this awesome community that has helped me greatly over the past couple of years. I have always been more of a forum lurker, looking for the info I needed, and that is it. So although this doesn't make up for my "laziness" or lack of participation, I hope it does earn me a little positive karma, if nothing else.

I will be making a separate achievement guide soon for the DLC achievements, even though they are very easy.

Setting out on the Event List as I write this. 30% done so far. Going to be a long run. Looking to take out the championship races with the two heats first. Those are the most annoying.

Do those last. The achievement pops 22 races before it is supposed to, so saving those til last means you won't have to do some of them.

is this so? well its something, although there are about 5million more races to do

i have a question about the unicorn car. im not really sure what im supposed to so. the guide says you can either be a VIP member or buy one when they become available or win one in a sponsored event.

i haven't played FM3 but i bought the VIP pass for this game, so does that qualify me for getting a unicorn car through being a VIP member or does it strictly have to be from importing a save from FM3 and being VIP from that?

cheers.

thanks for the link, but i have no idea what any of that means. im not on facebook, so thats probably the easiest of those options out of the window.

what about in the guide where it suggest importing a save from FM3 and being VIP, how would i get a unicorn from that, would it just pop up in a message after importing the save. i might just buy FM3 if its as easy as that, im gonna need to buy a kinect too for that kinect achievement, which fucking sucks.

I did get the achievement importing my FM3 save but I was vip in both. I believe you had to be high enough level in 3 and own the unicorn in 3 to import it into 4. I also believe that the cars were DLC cars in 3 so you might have to buy vip and/or dlc for 3.
