"135R"???

Typo, or is Club 111 going to need to change names?

Maybe this way they can take the .com instead of the .net

Anyway, it has to be a typo, since the European model is 111R but who knows?

Okay, who else is sitting in a pile of shrinkwrap with a green plastic DVD case??

And who else, only minutes later, said "Hey, wait a sec, this isn't the Fed Spec Elise!" Yeah, me too.

Fry's Electronics in SoCal has it for $34.99 today, which is a nice deal for a new release.

So fire it up! "Club111" is rocking on XBox Live and taking new members!

Yeah looks like a normal Elise, how many diff 05 models are there??? 135hp my ass! I just logged in to see if anyone else noticed this or if there is a different Elise in the game. Sooooo dissapointed. But, maybe its just a bug, I'll see how it drives now k bye.

aw man the S2 Exige is in this game. Damn GT4. What's the news about this new XBOX I'm hearing?

I liked Forza, but I'd honestly much rather play GT4 with my 2005 190 hp Federal Elise than some 135 hp "mistaken" Federal Elise in Forza.

Seems to drive alright, handles turns as I would expect, and the tire noises sound good, so I feel like it drives better than gt4 in some ways. The backend is planted down and doesnt get squirrely so easily and I really like a couple of the smaller tracks with this car. The speed really isnt too far off on the 135r, feels like it accelerates almost as quick as a normal fed 111r would, its lighter by a couple hundred lbs so im not sure how accurate everything is supposed to be. But the 5 speed tranny is unforgiveable. Overall GT4 is the greater game, that logitech wheel with lifelike steering is absolutely wonderful, and the graphics are much better too (which i didnt expect). Somehow this post turned into a review, I dunno what happened. I shall play the forza more tho, Ive got to drive that Exige still.

Yeah. I'm still pissed off they didn't include our car.

Let's play online! Do you have Live? It's the most fun and the best thing about Forza. My gamertag is LightweightRod. Post yours guys!

Wow... I skipped right over the Elise and went with the Exige! I like it so far, but that's mainly because I like that you can sustain damage. (GT4 doesn't have damage modelling built-in.)
