Thats interesting:

"After all, this is Forza, and each car in the game will still feel completely unique in the way our fans expect. This includes highly complex characteristics such as chassis flex, suspension architecture, wheel-base, and moment of inertia."

The FM7 physics engine is deep. Check the ffb thread on the official forums. One of the devs is interacting with users to try and improve ffb and he really knows his stuff. Some excellent explanations of how deep the physics engine is and how it's tied to the ffb system.

It's such a shame that T10 has to castrate the experience to make the game more accessibile and expand the car roster to its current size, because from what I'm given to understand Forza's engine would absolutely blow everything else out of the water if it had a chance to stretch its legs. And I still can't wait to try cars such as the Alfa 158 in game, especially if they've improved their simulation of chassis & driveline flex...

"DLC and Token purchases are no longer a part of Forza Rewards, and if you played any previous titles your reward scores for DLC and Tokens will now be maxed out."

Hopefully this is a sign they won't be including micro-transactions in FM7, or at least doing it like the past couple games and making it so you can just hide any mention of them.

I especially like this homoligation stuff. Hopefully makes the racing closer and somewhat more realistic. I hope we can at least set private lobbies up with our own restrictions in a similar way. If that's the case, it'll be a good time.

Does it say when this will take effect? Unlocking the paid tokens rewards for FM5 would almost push me into Tier 11 which I'd really like to be in before Friday as I really want that FM1 driver suit :P

On a different note, I kinda hope the older cars still flop around under heaving braking/turning/acceleration like they did in FH3. 👍

Pretty sure they set it up so that you actually get the paid token rewards regardless of whether or not you've "earned" them if you've played the respective game.
