Anybody watch Forza Motorsports Showdown on Speed

Today was the last show, the S197 supercharged mustang won with a girl in the seat. She beat out a C6, two supercharged 350z's, 69 Camaro, 70 challenger. It was over 4 days, the events were drag racing, drifting, SOLO 2, circle track and road course. After each event they got points to upgrade their cars. The prize was $100,000.00.

Re: Anybody watch Forza Motorsports Showdown on Speed

That car has some serious power. I only saw one episode where the girl was driving stick for the first time and still won, that shows how nice that car was.

It also seemed to be rigged. The Drift guy was by far the most experienced driver, and cheated on Road America cutting through the grass in the S turns and didn't even get penalized. Good thing he still lost to the Corvette.

I'll have to watch the rest of the episodes.

Put it this way, the mustang beat a brand new C6 Z06 corvette in the 1/4 mile...

It was just another show like pinks. The "professional" drivers they had on there sucked. I think I could have driven better then them. Hell, I know I could have gotten better than a 13.1 out of that vette.

Saw the first show, when the mustang won the 1/4 mile, I knew it was going to suck.

Not to mention, the dude driving the vette couldn't even smoke the tires in the drifting competition. WTF? The owner of the car went into the lot and smoked the **** out of the tires to tell him "this is how you smoke the tires in a ****ing Z06" ...

What are the specs on that Mustang? I'm pretty sure it was pretty heavily modified and you are right that most of those people couldn't drive at all. The Drifter did disappoint me, I expected him to win quite a bit more with his experience

The Corvette Driver was just a young guy from what I saw, didn't get to see the drifting episode, but luckily the car carried him through the Road Race at RA.

Re: Anybody watch Forza Motorsports Showdown on Speed

I still don't think that car was supercharged, 13.4's at 103/104 are times spot on with a mildly modded 05, while factoring lack of driver and not so good tires. Sounded stock with exhaust to me. I don't get it at all, though, because I saw the aftercooler box when the hood was popped :dunno:

My assumptions were right on with the two Z's. You can't turbo a VQ35 and mildly tune it and expect it to last 15 laps on road atlanta. I'm surprised they didn't detune the cars so they would last. They motors got hot (which they didn't say), lossed power, and eventually shut down. My guess with the C6 was that it was running a little lean and detonating a little causing it to run hot since it had a cam/intake and another mild tune. There wasn't enough time spent tuning the computers on these cars. My biggest surprise was the Challenger. I can't BELIEVE how good that dam thing ran! Either way, First On Race Day *****es.
