Been working on a follow-up to Touring Masters... I usually try to get one done as the other starts, and it seems that NASA's American Iron class lends itself quite nicely to FM4. The only trick is the balance between easy to drive enough for good competition and challenging enough to keep interest.

But as the title implies, the carlist is very American.

Sorry Mikey, I haven't been able to get to this yet, with work, the blizzard, and a severe sinus infection. Will try to start testing in the next couple of days. If you have any builds set up send them over and I will try them out.

I wish I would have seen that post before I was on FM4 for the day, but may well go on a bit before work tomorrow.

The build rules and car list are set, so no further balancing is in order, better than Touring Masters in balancing and grip. Jst awaiting that series to wrap up before going public with American Iron.

I sent a slew of my best tunes for American Iron over to Mako and Coot. Hope it helps y'all decide on a car. If it helps you guys make A Lobby, even better.

I saw TomCat asking about TCC. If you're interested, I have tunes and builds for tons of those cars, some of which are actually pretty sporty even w/me driving them. Let me know and I will send a few to ya.

American Iron: Mustangs and Camaros seem to be the favorites, but really try out the Lexus and Infinity tunes I sent... they are very nice to drive and surprisingly quick.

I found out about the TCR TCC from "xKingCobra28" (Venom} yesterday and built some of the cars.
The Series will be on Fridays at 5 PM Eastern.

My best time on Atlanta is in the Mazda Familia at 1:34.020
I can only come close in the 1:34's with a few cars.

King Cobra is listed using the 2010 Chevy Cobalt, but I'm slower with it, even after trying Solar Flars3's SF Tune.

Yes Mickey, I would like to try your Mazda tune.
My tune is mostly the Forza 4 Tuning calculator.

The fact it's on Friday is my problem, not the time.  I am still at work at 5:00 PM anyway.

Since we cannot use ABS Brakes, I may drop out.
After practicing for 2 hours with ABS off, my best lap time is 1:35.3 compared to 1:34.020 with ABS.

I'll have to see if I can get on to work with you Tom. ABS shouldn't affect your lap times so much.

Tom, remember what AXE was saying about using ABS. You are probably better off breaking a bit sooner and not using ABS.

Tom, get yourself a 'Mr Clean Magic Eraser' - trim it to fit behind your brake pedal.  I used this when I had my MS 360 wheel, and it helped a lot with consistent brake pressure. ABS will slow you down, as you tend not to time your brake points properly - slow in, fast out, and like Jackie Stewart was so fond of saying when your exiting a turn, "don't put your foot down on the gas pedal until you are sure you don't have to take it off".

Thanks for the encouragement boys.
I do have a piece of foam under the brake pedal and turned the pressure down to 65%.

I'm about 1/2 sec. slower now and hope to get about the same times.
We'll see today on RD. Atlanta

The fast guys are running 2-3 seconds faster.
Driven

Tom, sorry I didn't get the chance to shoot you a tune, double work shifts all week, then I saw you're using a wheel, so I am unsure mine would work for you as I only use a wheel on ovals.

That's OK Mickey. Even though the Mazda is a little faster, I switched to the Honda Integra for better consistency.

My best lap in the race was a 1:34.5
