How do we figure out which cars are eligible for each League… before it begins?
For the Exec Heavyweights I had a fair idea - heavy exotics, and E class Ghost was pretty easy to figure out, but for Classic Compact it’s a bit more vague. At the moment it shows that I have 0 eligible cars and there are 0 eligible rental cars. That makes for pretty slim pickin’s. I would like to start tuning a few cars for the league but I have no idea which cars will be eligible. Is there some way to find out what a “Classic Compact” is?
an easy way to find out what cars are eligible is to go into the career screen and look up that division of car, for example the exec heavy weight (which I think is under the 1st of the 5 chapters) and then go to buy car that is under that section. That is the easiest way I have found out.
That works I guess but it’s not exactly what I’d call “easy”. lol It also won’t work if you haven’t unlocked that section of the career mode yet. I don’t think I have ever finished the career mode in any Forza game.
For anyone else who reads this and wants to find out which cars you can use for the “Nov. 15th to Nov. 22nd Classic Compact League”, these are the cars listed as eligible in the Career section. You will have to boost them up to B Class.

I dislike it for the simple reason that about every classic compact car is E-class and has a stock PI between 200-300 PI. This league should be E-class (300PI limit) so the majority of the cars at least still feel somewhat like they supposed to be.
Now with B-class spec (max 600 PI) you have an extra 300-400 PI so you can start adding racing upgrades, engine swaps and whatever stupid upgrades that completely ruin the feeling of the classic car it is in the first place. You will have your highly tuned B-class road monster that drives outstanding but it won’t be related anymore to how it supposed to feel in relation to the stock classic car. Pick whatever classic compact car you like from an aesthetic point of view because with a PI of 600 the skin is about the only thing different from other cars. Whatever downsides the original car has can easily be tuned out. In the end you won’t be driving a BMW 2002, Toyota 2000GT or Lancia Fulvia anymore, you will just drive a 600 PI pimp that has the skin of a classic car.
Thank you for posting weekly PJ! I, as I’m sure many others do, appreciate it. It is a big help when looking to set up some rides for the upcoming week. It is a bit strange that no one from T10 post the info though. One would think that Mech could mention it in the WIR.
P.S. I downloaded your S2000 tune for B class a while back. Sweet ride bro!
An easy way to figure out which cars are eligible (assuming Turn 10 lists the car class/division restriction) is to start a private online race as host and under advanced settings or restrictions, choose the listed car class/division. Then from the main lobby screen - choose a car and select - buy a car. You should be able to scroll through all of the eligible cars.
It is possible some of the cars in class though have a PI over the PI restriction. if you want to exclude these cars from the list, you could set a max pi in the advanced settings too. Don’t select a minimum or choose the actual restricted class however because this will eliminate the cars that can be upgraded to the correct PI.
(this method doesn’t help though if there are hidden restrictions such as the current R class where 70’s F1 cars are not allowed.)
