Strengths:

Patience
Understanding of concepts
I can do oval racing because it doesn't involve tight turns lol, though I can't tune a car for it..


Weaknesses:

I can paint ok, just nothing spectacular. I always have so many ideas, but can never put those ideas down on the car 'cause I don't have an eye for how the shapes are to fit together.

I can't tune worth anything. As I said above give me a concept and I'll understand it, but applying that concept is another thing all together.

I can race, but without either of the race wheels there's just no point because the controller is crap.

Tuning: I normally steer clear of tuning set-ups but would really like to be able to do some set-ups of my own with some helpful advice.
Circuit: Majority of my playing time is in this section. Not really much I can improve on except being consistent.
P2P: Once I get warmed up, this section doesn't worry me at all.
Oval: With some proper tuning knowledge, I should improve on this immensely.
Drifting: Other than for achievements, I don't really drift that much. However, I do want to improve my technique.
Hot lapping: Like my Circuit racing, consistency is key here.
Painting: I have no real interest in but I do like to judge other people's work for comps and such

Strenghts:

Circuit racing and some tuning, manage to get in top 1%.

Weekness:

Drifting and Sedona full, it's those decreasing radius turns that get me in the sandtrap.

Strengths:

Tuning: I use Feurdog's Forza Motorsport 3 Car Setup Tool to tune and the BEST advice I can give to a beginner tuner or someone that plays constantly but just can't figure out the method that goes into tuning, is to give this flash program a try. When you learn to use all the tools within the program it's very possible to get an absolutely perfect tune. I would still have no clue how to tune if it weren't for this program. If enough people would like I can write a tutorial...and share some of my tuning with the "Setup Tool" methods.

Circuit and Time Trial
Perfect Race Replica Painting
Photoshop
Defensive/ Clean driving
No Assists

Weaknesses:

Drag (haven't worked on it much at all)
Drift (haven't touched it)
Fantasy/ Photo-realistic Painting
P2P Driving (I'm so so. Win some....lose by a lot sometimes.)

Strenghts:
-Tuning. I have references.
-Circuit racing.
-Making rivalries within classes, developing competative and close series races.
-Patience.

Weaknesses:
-Hotlapping, I'd rather chase a faster driver than a ghost.
-Painting, I don't have the passion for it I did in FM2.
-Stubborn, I race what I want and that means I could probably win more in better cars.
-Track choice, I tend to race where I'm confident but I don't practice enough where I stink.

Strengths

Hotlapping: ever since I started using manual clutch Ive been very quick at hotlapping in underated cars such as the infiniti G37

Road Racing circuits and P2P:I can hit times below 100 at times with the right car/tune and love racing on them especially nurburgring and rally di positano

Driving Clean : I always try to avoid contact when possible and If I accidently hit someone I would give the person their position in the race back

Weaknesses:

Drifting: I drift worse than anyone

Painting: I cant even paint a circle

Nervousness: Im always nervous during a online race which makes it hard when Im overtaking as I worry about causing a crash

Speech problem: Ive had this since I was like 4 which makes it hard for ppl to understand what Im saying when Im talking on the Mic

Strengths:
Prototypes - I seem to be much more confident with these than any other class of car
Tuning - It can be quite satisfying trying to turn a pig into a race winner, then winning a race with it!
Endurance races - they're just fun

Weaknesses:
Painting - I just don't have the patience to sit down and spend multiple hours on a paintjob... After about 10 mins I just want to go driving again (and even if I did spend all that time it'd look rubbish anyway)
Drifting - I only ever bothered with it to get that stupid 100k achievement, and I've hated it in forza ever since.
Being too nice - I've lost races because I've either been too careful not to take somebody else off or because I've actually taken somebody else off, slowed down to let them back through but lost 2 or 3 places in the process!!

Couldn't agree more on those two!

As for clutch, swap it with the handbrake so it's mapped to button A. Then all you need to do is press 2 buttons at once to shift gear (X+A or B+A). Try it, you save up to a coupla seconds a lap!
(If you've already tried this then sorry to insult your intelligence lol!)
