I know what you’re all thinking. I’m being picky, but to be honest, with me being the car guy that I am, and Forza being the simulator it states, I believe that the cars should sound like its real life counterparts. Without me writing a very long intro, lets get into some of my biggest rants…
Rev Limiters: If you tune the engine, they are fast, untuned they are slow. That seems about right, but where is the engine stress? I don’t hear any crackling and pops other than the frequent backfire shot out at the same RPM every time.
Engine Swaps: Engines that we can replace other engines with are the ones that should have the best sounds, because they are the most used. For instance, 2JZ from a Supra, The V12 Enzo, the VR36DTT from a GT-R, the 4.5 L V8 from a Ferrari 458… These engines are horrible sounding, in my opinion. They have good RPM sounds at some times, like in the lower ranges, but thats just about it.
Engine Pitches: Something I have found out is that they reuse engine sounds. For instance, the F&F Challenger and Charger both share qualities from the Corvette in this game, just a lower pitch. Or, if you get any other engine, and you rev it, you can find out that its either a higher pitch off of another engine in the game, or a lower pitch. Just listen to RPMs and some cars will start to sound like others
The speciale has a very accurate sound for the 458, and I don’t know why they didn’t just replace it
