Hey guys I need friends in forza 5 add me !

@TheSoulKiller89 I’ll add you later today.

Update: Here is a youtube video of a fellow gamer doing a great Showcase, 1/4 Mile, 1/2 Mile, and Topspeed Runs in the 2015 Mustang GT (bone stock): Forza 5 - 2015 Ford Mustang GT - ForzaVista, Top Speed Run, Drag Tests (Showcase) [HD] - YouTube | His 1320 time is nearly identical to mine and that gives a little validation to my test times but I’d like you guys to tell me what you ran in the cars so we can have a greater understanding of what the cars are truly capable of!

Don’t forget to give their Youtube Channel a look @ Barbate Brandon - YouTube for more great vids!
