Is it just me or do RWD cars have a bad tendency to snap oversteer the moment i lift of the gas in a highspeed corner or even do light braking when using a wheel (fanatec 911 turbo S. All aids off, simulation steering.)

I have friends who are also complaining about this who are used to playing GT5.

is this a known issue? or is it natural and realistic? because i dont think it's realistic at all that my E39 would suddenly snap oversteer at a slight kink (using the wheel) whereas in an xbx controller it wouldnt.

Try running it without force feedback.

Sent a request, too. Gamer tag is same as forum name, just without the underscore.

And I really miss Porsche in this game. :(

Forza AI Fail (yes, I'm the 'victim' in this video). This happened in the first heat of the last even in the last year of the career mode, and cost me the first heat :(

Am I blind or is there really no direct way to see which rivals events you have already done?

so. drag racing is a hoot.

running a A class Fairlane T'bolt with fully upp'd original engine, full weight reduc, stock 3 speed tranny, stock suspension, and slicks

no tuning whatsoever, ran a 11.6 @ 133 with a sloppy launch.

goal is to get it into the 10s without getting too radical with parts

soooooo much better than FM3

The Electric DeLorean isn't DeLorean Motor Company's only project. They're also working on a supercharged version of the classic stainless steel sports car set to debut at SEMA next week. All they need is a design to wrap it in, which is where you, and a copy of Forza Motorsport 4, come in.

Use your creative skills to design the best custom paint job for the Stage III supercharged DeLorean in Forza 4 and DMC will apply it to their latest creation. And did we mention prizes? There will be prizes. Details below the jump.

The Contest
We've partnered with the DeLorean Motor Company of Humble, Texas to help them create a design for their Stage III Supercharged DMC-12. What we came up with was this pink monstrosity. You can probably do better.

Just login to Forza 4, buy a DMC-12 (as if you don't already have one), and apply all the paint and decals you can to create a custom design that simply screams "awesome supercharged DeLorean."

If your design is chosen, the nice folks at DMC will create a vinyl wrap of it for SEMA.

The Requirements
Because this is a SEMA show car we're going to ask that you incorporate three logos from the partners involved: DMC, Sprintex Superchargers, and Jalopnik.

All of these can be found by going to the Forza 4 showroom of RandoorRandolfs later today and downloading them from him.

Currently, only the Jalopnik logo is available, but we want to give you plenty of time to work on the design.

However you use them ? either as a bumper sticker or incorporated into the design ? is up to you, just make sure they're visible and make sure the Jalopnik logo isn't the largest since we've done the least amount of work to make this car a reality.

The Details
Since there's a short window to turn this car around and get it wrapped so it can participate in the SEMA tuning show in Las Vegas next week we're not giving you much time. The contest officially starts now and ends at 11:59 PM on Tuesday, October 25th.

To enter you need to design the car, upload it to your showroom, and send us at least one good in-game shot of the car to be judged. Attach them in an email to tips@jalopnik.com with the subject "DeLorean Design Contest" along with your Xbox Live gamer tag, real name, and a phone number.

We also encourage you to upload them to this comment thread so other viewers can submit feedback.

Because Forza 4 doesn't allow you to paint the front lip or rear bumper we're allowing you to make those changes in another design program if you wish, but it isn't a requirement.

But I don't have Forza 4
Ideally, you do. If not, you're more than welcome to sketch or create a version of the vehicle and apply your design to it and send it to us. But it needs to be comprehensive enough that we can see the vehicle from all angles.

PRIZES!
In addition to seeing your design on a real car, which is the best reward of all, we'll also give you free stuff. This includes a prize pack from DeLorean Motor Company complete with apparel and other goodies. There will also be a mystery pack of stuff from the Jalopnik offices. And stickers.

The fine print
As always, standard Gawker Media contest rules apply. In addition, DeLorean reserves the right to modify or change your design in any way to make it work on the vehicle. If you are selected the winner by our esteemed panel you must provide the car in your showroom along with detailed in-game photos. Failure to respond quickly means you forfeit and we move onto the next person. Turn 10 and Microsoft are not sponsoring this contest.

GOOD LUCK!

Someone here should make an FG themed car, and submit it.

Is that your Ford in the club garage? I just ran it in some online races and managed 11 dead. However, I feel like it's running out of transmission, as when I make runs under 11.3 the car will bounce off the rev limiter right before I cross the line.
