    Personally the lack of race cars in the forza series was part of the reason why I havn't bought the game since forza 4 (7 came free with the one x). Race cars are what it's all about for me, but I appreciate everyone is different.

    Now maybe if SMS added motorbikes I'd be more likely to buy the game! Bikes are my passion for the road, I've owned and ridden far more bikes than cars, but that's all about performance vs price - you can't beat a bike on that measure!

    More seriously I've never driven the road cars in either of the pc1 or 2, not interested. The decision of SMS to focus on tracks was the best decision ever made, no point in having in having a virtual garage full of cars if you have nowhere to drive them - more tracks please!

    I appreciate everyone is different too, but I wouldn't like bikes in my car game one bit(the boats, bikes and planes in the Crew put me off severly too). If you think race vs road cars is apples and oranges, cars and bikes are apples and ants...

    Didnīt go through the whole thread, but... What I like about the road cars is all the details with the original dash boards they have. Take the Audi A1 at dawn and then turn the lights on and watch the interior and you know what I mean. Most of them really make me feel like driving a car I most likely will never be able to afford. So yes, I would happily accept more road cars as well as any race cars.

    The comment about bikes was a joke based around what people drive and the appeal of thrashing your own virtual road car around a track. I don't really want to have bikes in project cars! Besides I own the game, the best and most realistic racing sim available for consoles, and that's the appeal.

    LOL! Having my own opinions & preferences does not mean I'm a "selfish tyrant." That's quite an amazing leap.



    If this game/series fails, I highly doubt it will be because of its selection of content.
    A Laferrari is considered a road car. The P1 is considered a road car. The 918 spyder is considered a road car. These cars are faster around a circuit than most "race cars" needing nothing more than a set of tires to get it done. Now what?

    Yes, actually it does make you selfish in the way you framed it. If you said "I prefer race cars" that would be an example of a non selfish preference. Saying "I vote to have only race cars and circuits, no more road cars and highways" is not the same thing considering what's already in the game. What's stopping you from avoiding the road cars and highways? What part am I missing? Guess what, I don't like oval tracks. So you know what I don't drive on? I definitely don't request the dev's take them out of the game because I don't like them, because that would be selfish. And no, that's not a leap. That's just common sense. The developers put these cars and tracks in the game for a reason. Just like the named the game (C.A.R.S.) . You can't have it both ways.

    Also, road cars are actually challenging. If I'm going to lap with a GT3 or something, I basically need a cup of coffee and an adderall. Otherwise I'll fall asleep. And that's not a testament to me being good. It's a testament to how well those cars handle with all the aero.

If someone likes cruising with an awesome supercar, it's totally fine. I enjoy that as well from time to time. Driving a legend like the XJ220 is pretty cool and the Porsche GT3 RS is actually a blast, but it's all about racing so why would someone prefer the GT3 RS over the GT3-R?
    There you go again, projecting your own preferences as some sort of 'ideal'.

    For a start your idea of a road car & a race car seem somewhat narrow. Many of the race cars in this game do not have down force, good breaks etc and visa-versa.

    By your logic they may as well cut out many of the vintage race cars as well?

    Also you idea of what people do with road cars is somewhat narrow, in-fact i do wonder if you are just in here trolling, so i'm not going to waste any more time in here.

    It's the basic problem with sims. Some people think having road cars in it 'ruins' the sim experience and fight for getting rid of them, but if the road car is well simulated it obviously does not(conflict with or ruin the sim). It also doesn't meddle with any of the real race classes within that sim so I don't get why they get so worked up anyway.

    There are a bunch of road cars in PC1/2 that I like driving better than a whole bunch of race cars in PC1/2. They are just a hell of a lot more enjoyable to drive. Same goes for Assetto and rFactor2 btw.

    I would like to see more road cars in the game, but possibly racing in their own classes /categories? Part of the reason i enjoy this element is the very night and day difference between road and race cars... You go gee this road car is fun/quick... Then hop into a full blown race car and its WTF..OMG!... See, thats called...wait for it...F..U..N!
