I just bought and Xbox 360 and Forza 2. Does anyone on here race? Is there a Spec Miata series on Xbox live by chance?

I don't know the answer to your questions but I'm anxiously awaiting a response. I just bought my XBox 360 yesterday at Target. Microsoft dropped the 20GB Pro model by $50 to 299 and Target offered a $25 gift card on top of that so, I finally took the plunge.

Just ordered Forza 2 on Amazon so, I'm almost ready to roll.

I thought about buying GRID but I heard there's no practice or qualifying and that the AI sucks. Supposedly your teammate will try and crash you on the last lap if you are leading. The graphics look good but that sounds childish to me.

Forza 2 doesn't have practice or qualifying either. It's not a true sim like GTR2 was/is. Still a fun game though for when you have nothing else to do around the house!

That sucks. Maybe I will get GRID when the price comes down.

Whats GTR2?

Grid is pretty cool... it's a fun racing game... the graphics are pretty sweet, but I wouldn't call it a racing simulator or anything...

The best thing to do is rent the game first and test it out...then decide to buy or not.

do yourself a favor and leave the driving for real-life and pick up CALL OF DUTY 4. it's AWESOME. Oh...and if you don't have a HDTV, you're missing out BIG TIME and you'll have one very soon! [Wink]

I'd give you my gamertag ID, but I'm going to get the PS3 next month, so I'll be selling my XBOX 360 and games. I love the XBOX but all of my friends are on the PS3...

Enjoy it!! Forza 2 is a great game! There was a post on Forza 2 players on this site somewhere... not sure how current it is...
Cheers,
-Ryan

Forza is OK, but the PS2 and 3 steering wheels are far more realistic than anything compatible with xbox IMO. I have both( Uh, I mean my son has both [Big Grin] ) The PS is way better IMO, when complete PS3 version comes out, it will be awesome. Or is Forza comes out with a decent steering wheel.

GTR2 is a PC simulator and WAYYY better than ANY console!! You play games on the consoles (XBox and PS3) but if you want to drive a SIMULATOR the PC is the ONLY way to go! The logitech G25 wheel and pedal is the setup for the money ($225) but there are some serious stuff up in the $1500.00 range

http://gtr-game.10tacle.com - GTR2 info

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/gaming/playstation_3/devices/131&cl=us,en - G25 info,this is for PS3 but it also works on the PC

For the most mods and tracks, just to drive, you want rFactor. Mods at rFactor Central

http://www.specforza.com used to have a Forza 2 SM series, but I just checked the site and it is down. Not sure if it's permanent.
