Wellp, looks like the Huayarhuayaara finally had its EA exclusivity period expire. Quite glad to see that happen. Now I'll get to see if it actually handles reasonably in a game that isn't utter horseshit like Shift 2.

As for the Omni...well, it's about time. Still waiting on a Dodge Shelby Charger, though.

...and the Pinto will see use from me. Oh yes it will.

Good news! Dacia have announced that the Sandero will go on sale in the Dacia Mega-pack for Forza 4 later this year!

All I know is I'm getting the Fiat coupe and making Jeremy Clarkson's cop car as best as humanly possible.

In jail no one can hear you scream.

The Omni can be boosted up to R3 789 with AWD and a GTO/Stealth engine and still handle reasonably well. It's a monster, and given it wasn't originally meant to be FWD from what I've heard, the ability to change the drivetrain actually makes sense for once!

I've yet to try the Pinto, but I only have the highest of expectations for its performance.

I can confirm the Pinto's competence. It makes sense, given the car's long history of motorsports in both drag racing and dirt oval racing!

I've only driven it stock, around the Nurburgring, thing sounds like a monster for such a small car, until you get to 5th gear and it just won't go haha. Only had time real quick for that 10 minute journey. Will be tuning tonight/tomorrow.
