    Permabans come with a device ban, IIRC.

    Fascinated by the view as I was scrolling, and then I realised why... that's my house! :D

    Quite a bit of creative license taken with the beach, but the grass opposite isn't too far from Horizon reality.

    They've done a great job with the Napier Railton (only nitpick would be the lights they've added). The rough, weathered and once polished finish on the bodywork is amazing, the engine sounds great... but you better be alert to what's going on around you, because it doesn't stop (as it should with only rear brakes)

    I don't know if the Railton's engine sounds are accurate or not but I could listen to them all day. It handles like crap too(as expected), I am going to have a lot of fun with it.

    1933 Napier-Railton. I got 157 mph on the beach and it was still pulling but I ran out of sand, and 180 mph on the motorway.

    And yes, the engine is visible in Forzavista.

    Yeah it's an insane car to handle. On top of that, it was raining when I first drove it.

    Turbocharge the 2CV and you'll hear one of the most over the top BOV sounds I've heard in Forza. Add the sport carb and exhaust with it for good measure.

    Only 80hp but just over 100 lb ft of torque. Kept it on stock suspension and tyres for maximum Tin Snail cornering.

    They weren't lying about the brakes on that thing. They're next to useless.

    I maxed out a 2CV and kept it front wheel drive, it’s a wheelspin monster does a burnout up until 6th gear.

    I have to wonder about the licensing of a car like the Napier-Railton. Who even owns the rights to a car like that??? I am just so impressed that we have this car.

    It is a racing vehicle, so presumably the current owner would be the one the holds the rights to it. I would imagine licensing is a bit less sticky when one off machines are involved, especially ones as old as that one.

    My short experience with the Napier-Railton so far:

    1. Give it Vintage Racing Tyres, and slightly increase the tire width on the rear wheels, because 1500+ ft/lbs. aircraft engine.
    2. Take it out of the Main Horizon Hub on the downhill straight to hit the speed trap
    3. Hit 140+ on speedtrap
    4. Get to the Junction at the bottom of the hill, doing about 170, apply brakes and starts to turn in
    5. Spin wildly onto someone's farmland
    6. Go back to the autoshow, notice that the car physically has no front brakes. Also notice that the cars default brake bias is set 100% to the rear
    7. SurprisedPikachu.gif
    I didn't get a chance to check this, but I'm curious if the brake upgrades "add" front brakes. In any case, this car is both surprisingly agile and absolutely undriveable, all at the same time.

    Edit: Actually, funnily enough, the Napier-Railton is bugged. It actually has a 100% "front" brake bias in the tune settings, but that actually locks up the rear brakes. I really hope this is a bug specific to the N-R, because if not, I have a very large number of tunes that are very wrong.

    I absolutely adore the Railton. That engine sound is the epitome of pleasure. Playground absolutely blew it out of the water this time. :drool::tup:

    Can someone sell me an AE86?

    I’m late to the party.

    Funny. The same thing to me when I obtained the Napier-Railton too. :eek:

    I have to say, this car is like a demon on wheels. If you're not careful, it will try to kill you. :lol: I love this thing but fear it at the same time haha. But the sound and mastering it is what keeps me going. A pure vintage racer with an airplane engine of all things = BEAST! :D

    Also I didn't know it just had rear brakes. Oh my gosh imagine driving this thing stock on the Nurburgring in FM8?

    Yeah, takes forever to slow the car down lol. Getting a clean lap on the Nurburgring will definitely be a challenge.

    I drove my completely stock Napier-Railton in the Goliath last night. It was a handful around Ambleside to say the least. I managed to win, but I was pursued by two Alfa P3s that dogged me the entire way with their better handling and brakes. It was incredibly fun.

    I'll have to try that, sounds like a good challenge. What difficulty and settings did you have it on?

    Not liking the D class only for the Championship. I made an awesome C tune for the VW Notchback and had to downgrade it!

    I decided to take some pictures of how beautifully detailed PG has done with the Napier-Railton. This amount of love can not go unnoticed. All pics are all from in game, in full 4K glory! :D

    It's the only car T10 have ever put out with realistic lighting on the bodywork. Hopefully a preview of what they do with XSX.

    The Lego cars had detail like that too, minor scratches, imperfections and stuff that you could only see from certain angles... I think? Can't check right now.

    I know right? It's insanely good! Now imagine this thing on the XB Series X with raytracing? *Heavy breathing* :D

    So, how does the unban stuff work? I'm meant to be unbanned today, but I logged on and I'm still banned. The ingame message clearly stated 3/22/2020 was the unban date. Does that mean today is the last day for the ban and I have to wait until tomorrow?
