FM3 S-rank

So I fished off (S-Rank) Forza 3 this week --  What a fantastic racer, I really enjoyed my 150+ hours.    
 
I would offer up just a few recomendations to the the team at Turn 10: 
  - First and foremost, DLC tracks not integrating into the event list is unacceptable -- I love the Nurburgring Grand Prix track -- but other than a few races the day it was released I never saw the track again as I worked through all 220 event.  Please leave hooks in the event races to allow DLC to be included (swaping out another track for example).
  - I would love the option when selecting a new event to 'purchase a car that qualifies for the event' ,  similar to the 'choose a car from my garage' that already exists.    
  - No more drift challenges (although I am very thankful the 100,000 lap didn't disqualify rewind).  
 
Great game -- I'm looking forward to what T10 can do for the next go around..

Congrats dude, good job.
 
I'm currently sitting on 995 G with the drift lap left to go... I'll never get it since i can't drift to save myself.

I'm on about 70%  of the career completed and I've just hit a brick wall, I've only got the events I don't like left to do. However, that trophy really makes me want to complete it!

@Matfei90:  For help with the drift lap check out this link over at Xbox360Achievements.   It was actually pretty helpful for me.. but it took me more than a couple of hours to finally pull it off. 
 
I too cannot drift to save my life (the drifting challenges killed my enjoyment of Grid last year).

Heh I learned to drift in Forza 2, so I got the 100k achievement straight away. Once you get it then you don't forget how to.

I haven't put many hours into it since the first few weeks it was out, but I'm definitely planning on getting the S rank myself.  Congrats on getting it!

Thanks for that dude... I just got it first try! Ended up with 134,738 points... With plenty of sloppiness at the end after I exceeded the goal.
 
S-Rank, GET!

Congrats, It took me about the same amount of time to get an S-Rank. I wish they would add more achievements when they release DLC.

I was wondering if you could help me finish off my entrepreneur achievement. I just need you to by my tuning setup that I put online. My gamertag is SonicBlackzero the name of the file is no, and it is for a Porsche #45 GT3-RSR. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Congrats tc.  Well earned.  I'm still working on all the various races, but I get caught up w/building, tuning, and setting lap times.  Never gonna finish doing that,lol.  Forza 3 is so massive and made to last forever if you like cars.  
Here's a good Q for you tc: What's next?   
There's several very interesting racing sim games coming later this year.

@Burns098356GX:   Sorry, just got back in from vacation.   I (unfortunately) had to buy the trophy, it is not an award from the game.  I figured I owed myself the $2 prop for the time investment.
 
Would have been a nice reward though..
