131 Fiat Abarth Storm Island Rally Edition

I’ve been playing with the Abarth since I got the game end of October beginning of November, can’t remember when. The car was under used but showed some very good potential and then when the Storm Island DLC came out the car covers were removed and out she rolled.

I’ve tuned her as best I can for all that Storm Island throws at you, I’ve raced the car in Championships and took it to the car meets, nothing fazes the car.

The paint is by Initia1 B and was one of the best paint’s I found on the sharefront, he really nailed the livery of the Abarth driven by Walter Rohrl and Christian Geistdorfer

The pics were taken and many thanks for doing so to pervasivefall8 from http://pendulumtuning.freeforums.org/index.php

The tunes available on my sharefront GT: HandheldBee9 and paint from GT: Initia1 B

A short video on me taking it for a spin at a car meet available at 131 Abarth "Storm Island Edition" Forza Horizon 2 - YouTube

The car does come in at C599 just incase anyone wonders once they have it

What class is it in?

C600 (its in the thread title).

Pretty nice paint and a have to grab when ON… :slight_smile:

Love this tune Bee!

Great tune-used it to win the finale this morning after playing off line yesterday and did not get credit for the win I used yous first to try it out

Thanks for trying it out guys, was a bit skeptical about putting something out there as the sharefront is…well it’s not like the storefront’s of previous Forza’s.

Will have too get this and start waiting for the next one.Just hope horizon 2 loads not working for me at the moment…

Awesome showdown vid handheldbee9!! I’ll need to pick this tune out and have go. I know I kind of liked the car stock and was sure to put this in my lower class playlist. Initia1 B’s replicas are top notch! Can’t wait to try out the tune.

I already have a paint from Alitalia to this 131, but i will grab your tune and make a few runs in C class to check how it handles :slight_smile:

Let’s choose an event from Rivals and check where we can place this machine in the LB :slight_smile:

Great Tune - just won the storm finale with it. Good job. :slight_smile:

I loved the tune… Lower class are really not y thing - but I loved how it handled - might have just a tad bit too much grip for super fast time. I know the good drivers like a looser car but it was terrific to me. I don’t know the storm tracks well enough to say what good times are but I was decidedly faster through the courses then unbeatable drivatards… In the classic championship. I took it to Vitesse (sisteron) to see how it was on a fast circuit and I was really happy with it got easy 114s for a top 100 and very very consistent with it. The tunnel to the start finish line was flat out and super easy to do. The faster cars require a bit of finesse through there, but your car was flat out from the 180 degree turn at bottom of hill- to the 1st turn. I had Weary mick beat my rival time so I have since moved to the Renault to get close to top 10 - so my Fiat time isn’t posted - but I think it would be super fun to race there in them and I can’t wait to try it out on the other circuits - where that grip is going to come in handy.You gave me a very reliable fast C class car and Initia1 B’s livery is fantastic. Well done to the both of you! Massive thumbs up!

Again thanks for the feedback, building cars in this and previous Forza’s I have always biased my builds towards grip. My aim is to hopefully provide enough traction that even novice drivers will feel in control of the vehicle, I could tune a track specific car but some of those require out and out speed machine’s which while driveable by many, may be a problem to those that are new to racing style games, so I try to aim for a car that could be used at any course and by driver’s with different ability level’s.

Thanks Bee9
