Shelby Omni GLHS on The Nurburgring: Forza 4 Track Day Event. Clean Lap!
I take my S-Class (643) Shelby Dodge Omni GLHS out for the Nurburgring Track Day Event in Forza Motorsport 4 for the Xbox 360. I'm using the original Microsoft Wireless Racing Wheel w/ Force Feedback and footpedals (using paddle shifters and the "A" button as my clutch). The Force Feedback with this wheel is actually quite impressive, I was white-knuckled most of this race. I am racing on full EXPERT mode (all assists off, 100%CR Bonus). It has all parts on EXCEPT for the engine swap. Currently running a 2.5L 4cyl with 399hp and 349lb-ft of torque. Car weighs in at a cool 2,262lbs. I literally just added the parts on, have not tuned a single thing, not even tire pressure. Car is a beast in 2nd (if you can keep traction) as well as 3rd and 4th. This was so much fun, it presented a challenge not only because the car itself is so hard to drive (no traction in low gears, VERY squirrely at high speeds) but also because it was lacking the power of most S-Class cars that I run through this event. The "ghost" car in front of me was a Maserati that probably had close to double the hp of my little "S" car. Having right at 400hp made passing in some areas of the track very tricky as I had to time my attack perfectly. Also, those traffic cars sure like to brake check and cut you off! I had so many close calls, this race was a blast to run! If you enjoy this video, let me know which other S-Class cars you'd like to see me run through this event! I've already done videos of the Ferrari F40 and F50, though the F40 wasn't a clean lap so I suppose I should do that one again.
