A Booster Rivals event will open after the Wednesday Showdown.

I don’t see why this would matter so much for the general non-pro user. Unless there’s something I’m missing.
My point would be that if someone on PC is using a controller just like they would on Xbox (As wheel use generally means slower lap times) then surely it’s just the same as using the Xbox, albeit with more FPS if you have a decent PC.
I personally have both a PC & Xbox but I tend to play on PC specifically.

these types of cars are my kryptonite, no matter how I tackle each turn I cant keep it stable enough to prevent losing speed. the best I have managed is 1:42.6 and I know I need to knock of at least another second to make the weekend races. this will probably be the first week I don’t qualify.
I haven´t managed to qualify for the weekend races at all but am still in, just for the fun of it and having fun, unless you are fast enough to reach the finals and do your best against the TOP drivers I would continue for the fun of it if I were you
I’m not quick enough to place in finals, but can reach top 24 in weekend races if the cars suit me or if I practice.
Fun for me is seeing where I end up overall with what time I do have to play and max effort. I missed one week so that ends that experiment.
To be fair, I’ll probably still try some of these rivals if I remember or if I really dig the car selected but grinding lap times won’t happen. That’s what I mean about bowing out. No longer will I be chasing top 24 qualifying spots or every point possible.
Lately fun for me has been Horizon 2 and chasing achievements.
Was there a deadline in order to register for competing & having a leaderboard score? Also, if you’re registered but missed a sign up deadline &/or have an account on ForzaRC/ Gfinity do you still at least earn in game rewards for participating in the ForzaRC Rivals events?
I’d love a MONTE Carlo FE have yet to get one been unlucky when it comes to this one was gifted out a while back but never received one cause wasn’t aware it was for taking part in forzarc event I missed out on
