    To contact me, you can ring me up at 0925711860 (you might need extension 
    numbers, since I live in Taiwan, but because that is a cell phone no, I guess 
    it might just work without one). The easiest way though is to email me at:
    kn_the_glove@hotmail.com, and if you have msn or live messenger, you can 
    always add me so we chat about your problems real time. Bear in mind that I 
    live way over in a small island/country called Taiwan (just east of China), so
    there might be significant time difference. However, if you manage to appoint
    a time with me via email, I might be able to get on at the time suitable for 
    you. Send all your comments, further problems, and anything related to the 
    game or guide to me, and I'll reply as soon as I can. Thanks guys.

    This is all updates and versions of the guide with full detail and all dates
    included. Updates will come soon so don't stray far!
    
     0.1 (October 27th, 2009)- Created guide layout.

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      Direct Section Finder System
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    I have a system, like many other guides, that allows you to find the section
    you want to read without the need of scrolling all the way down to find it. 
    It's a really simple system, though. All my sections have been seperated into
    chapters and segments, chapters numbered and segments lettered. You can then
    simply find any section, by pressing ctrl+f and typing in the segment or chap-
    ter title, number and/or letter. For example, if I was looking for the game
    controls for the game, I would search "2.b)" and since that is the only "2.b)"
    in the guide, it will bring you there. That simple.

    This section will contain various parts that introduce you to the guide, the 
    author (me), and Forza Motorsport 3. 
    
    *******************************************************************************
      1.1... Introduction
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Four years ago I was racing like crazy with Forza Motorsport on the Xbox. If I 
    wasn't racing competitively online, I was taking part in events from the Career
    Mode and earning credits. And when I was off the track I would either be tuning
    and upgrading my cars or buying and selling them. The hundred-or-so hours used
    doing all that was time well spent. It was the most realistic and entertaining 
    racing experience I had ever got. Even when I got the Xbox 360, I stuck with
    Forza 1 and didn't buy the sequel when it was released back in '07. 
    
    My racing experience soon came to an end, however. There were simply too many
    good games for me to concentrate on sole racing, so finaly, Forza was shelved. 
    Two years later Forza Motorsport III was announced, and I felt the game-racer
    within me coming alive. Was it finally time to get back into a simulated cock
    pit and race laps around the Maple Valley Raceway? After checking a few E3 
    previews and interviews for Forza III I decided that it was finaly time. Forza
    III was purchased in the nearest store, and for hours it was the only game in 
    my 360 hard drive. 
    
    Forza Motorsport 3 is hands down the best racer ever- no matter the type of 
    racing game. This game beats out all of the best arcade racers, party racers,
    and simulations. Before I get lost into telling you how good Forza 3 is I must
    get back to the point of this introduction. This guide will cover almost every
    aspect of this game, and improve your racing skills whether you're a pro or a
    beginner to simulated racing. If you're a beginner just starting off, you shall
    feel right at home with Forza 3's many generous assists turned on. Read 
    chapters two, three, and four to immediately gain tips on how to race well. 
    
    For more hardcore racers you can skip right down to chapter seven, where all 
    the best racing tips and strategies are talked about. This chapter will also 
    cover all the race types from the season mode and include all the driving tips 
    for you to beat those specific types of races- be it the long endurance races 
    or the short but exciting drag races. 
    
    Finally, both hardcore and beginners should check chapters five and six out for 
    tips on using the customizing tool and upgrade/tuning system to make your car 
    the perfect ride. Either of these systems are one of the most in-depth out
    there in the game racing world, so be sure to check out those chapters or you 
    could be missing out on ways to truly flesh-out the potential of those tools.
    By using them well you can make your design your ride to look as unique as it 
    can possibly be. The only limit is your imagination. 
    
    Please understand that Forza Motorsport III is at it's core a racing game, and
    a simulation at that, so there will not be any walkthroughs for the season
    (career) mode or anything like that. You will need to read through all the tips
    and strategies I provide for racing in general, and also for the particular 
    race types for different events in order to gain a boost in your success as a 
    game racer with Forza 3. Many players will have specific problems and questions
    however, and in those cases feel free to ask me anything about Forza via email.
    I will reply to you as soon as possible. 
    
    One last thing before we move on. Developers Turn 10 have really set the bench-
    mark for racing games now with this third release. And so here's us hoping that 
    Gran Turismo 5 and other future racers will follow their actions into producing
    quality, realistic racers. And man, Forza 4, what will that be like? Only time
    will tell.  
    
    Until then, enjoy the most realistic yet most accessible racer of all time.
    
    
                                                                Your Pal, Kranti

      1.2... Forza Motorsport III
    *******************************************************************************
    
    For those of you that are wondering what's good about this game or even what 
    exactly is this game about, this short part is for you. 
    
    Forza Motorsport III is the most realistic and entertaining racing experience
    out there in the gaming market. The game is also one of the largest racing 
    games ever- with over 400 superbly modeled and detailed cars, over a hundred
    real and invented tracks, and a huge career mode and online component. 
    
    Basically if you happen to have the least bit of interest in cars, or in fact,
    do not despise cars in particular, you will want to check this game out. Forza
    3 does an incredible job of including options to turn on in-game driving 
    assists that help enhance the experience of those that aren't good at these 
    games. So whether you're a good race driver or not, you will feel that you're
    able to hold the wheel through any race- provided you give some effort. 
    
    The game also has the largest, craziest car designing tools ever. You can adds
    hundreds and hundreds of different shapes, creatures, symbols, letters, decals,
    and more to your car. You can change the size of any of these things easily, 
    and position them in any way you see fit. You can color your car with hundreds
    of different paint jobs, and also focus on painting your car in specific places
    (if that's your thing). 
    
    None of this is required though, it's simply there if you want it. Speaking of
    which there's also a robust upgrading and tuning system in Forza 3, which I 
    will go through in detail in section 6, and you can truly improve the performa-
    nce of your car in many different ways with these upgrades. There are also fast
    'Quick Upgrade' packs that you can purchase if you can't be bothered with 
    upgrading individual parts. 
    
    All in all this is a superb racer that can be friendly and welcoming for those
    that are new to this type of thing, or a challenging and extremely realistic 
    experience for the hardcore racers. Get this game and you won't go wrong.

      1.3... About the Author
    *******************************************************************************
    
    This short part will be on a little info about me, but if you're not interested 
    feel free to move on to the next part of this chapter.
    
    I have over ten years of gaming experience by playing over two hundred titles
    and beating at least sixty of them. Completely, from start to end, rooting out
    all the secrets and side stuff. How did all this begin though?
    
    At the age of just seven my dad brought back a NES (Nintendo Entertainment 
    System) so that he could play Super Mario and introduce me to it. I loved it,
    and soon I was playing all sorts of games with him (and alone) as well. Gaming 
    was for pure fun back then however, and I thought little about the story, 
    presentation, sound, and whatnot. A year later I got the Gameboy Color, and 
    played Pokemon Blue and Yellow to the max. And other games, of course. 
    
    Then my beloved aunt decided- this was two years later- to give me a SNES. A 
    Super Nintendo. I was very excited when I got the system, and I couldn't wait
    to play better versions of the games I played on the NES. And I did- games like
    Mario got their sequel and I love them. But again gaming was only for pure fun.
    Then of course I got a Game Boy Advance, and found myself not only replaying
    Pokemon (and getting the story more this time), I also bought many other games.
    
    After seven to eight months I think, my aunt gave me another game system. This
    time only because my uncle got a PS2, but it was still a great gift. I recieved
    a playstation, and a bunch of games. It must have been around twenty games as 
    well, I still remember not knowing which one to start with. I ended up playing
    everything for pure entertainment, and soon found myself settled and into 
    "beating" some of them. Yes gaming became more serious when I reached the age
    of ten, and I found myself beating a few games. I bought and owned over a 
    hundred games for that console. 
    
    The real big hit came next, however. A year later the Xbox was released, and I
    found it a much cooler system than anything I've ever seen. Sure it was big and
    perhaps a little ugly, but at the same time it was cool- both in color and in 
    design. It looked... like a kick-ass game system, rather than a delicate one. 
    I wanted it so bad, especially after playing Halo at my friends'. So I asked 
    for it a few months after release, and my parents promised to buy it for me. I
    can't stress how happy I was to hear that piece of news. 
    
    Unfortunately it took another few months for me to finally get the system, and
    I started out with just one game: Dead or Alive 3. Now that game was far from
    perfect, but as probably quite a few of you know, it's pretty good. It's also
    the first time I actually owned a next-gen game, so I was glad to play it. I
    think I beat the game with every character after I got my third game for the 
    system. The second game was Terminator, the third was 007: Nightfire. I loved
    the latter, playing what must have been a few hundred multiplayer matches with
    my sister, friends, and bots. 
    
    The real gaming started with the Xbox I must say. The next couple of years were
    spent on reading game mags and figuring out which games to buy, and which to 
    avoid. I felt I understood how important a game's story could be sometimes, and
    I started to listen to them. I read reviews and compared them. I also picked 
    games I liked the most and finished them off completely- I must have finished
    half of my first twenty games by the time I bought the twenty-first. 
    
    I still remember the thirteeths being Conker: Live & Reloaded. One of the best
    game I've played to date, not only because it was funny and great fun, but also
    because it had the best graphics I've ever seen, had superb sound, and just 
    presented to me one of the best characters I've ever known. Not to mention the
    great multiplayer. Oh and this game was the reason I got Xbox Live as well, and
    I spent ages on live with it. This was late 2005 by the way, and half a year 
    ago I also got Halo 2 and played a lot of live with it.
    
    And then the guide and review writing began, starting with Conker and then with
    a couple of other games like Fable. I also recieved the PSP around the time I 
    got Conker, and I spent a hell load of time on that too. Half a year later I 
    was deep into writing reviews and guide for both the Xbox games and PSP games. 
    I didn't post all of it onto sites, no, a lot were for practice and fun, but 
    I eventually started posting and joined gamefaqs.com. 
    
    Around summer 2007, which by then I had over fifty games on the Xbox and thirty
    game on the PSP (and completed half of them), my mum bought an Xbox 360. Yes, 
    just one random day she decided to get it for me. The joy! It was not a gaming
    leap like it was back when I got my Xbox, but it got me a little deeper into 
    guide writing I suppose. The next two years I spent on buying all the great 
    games that came out, and all with my money as well. Nearly every single one of
    them was bought with my hard-earned (yeah right) pocket money. But it felt good
    to do so. Because in a way it meant my parents couldn't take them away from me
    by saying "we paid for them anyway, so take your punishment and give them to 
    us". 
    
    Games like Mass Effect, Oblivion, Gears of War, GTA IV, and Halo 3 were great
    experiences. In just under two years I bought more than thirty games, and as of
    now I've beaten what must be eighty percent of them. The games listed above 
    plus Bioshock, GRAW 2, Perfect Dark, COD 4, Ninja Gaiden, Dead Space, Fallout 3
    and Fable 2 are just some of the games I absolutely loved. A little more than a
    month back I also got Batman: Arkham Asylum, and being a big fan of the dark 
    knight I loved the game like hell. Finally after beating Batman: AA I bought 
    Forza Motorsport 3 and have been racing ever since. 
    
    Yep and that's it. My gamer life may not be all that long and twisted, but it
    felt like a damn long journey to me. Mostly because I can't believe how I 
    survived with a playstation now that I'm for Microsoft. But yeah I can't really
    complain that much- Sony does deliver quite a few good games here and there. 
    They do have Gran Turismo games, don't they? But we still have the better host
    of simulated racing games. We got Forza. Sorry sony, you lose again.

    Track Layout (Mini-Map)
    .......................
    
    At the bottom left corner of the screen you will find the layout of your track
    along with you and your opponent's positions. This track layout will help you
    into determining which sorts of corners, bends, and straigthaways are waiting
    for you. You can also use it to locate every single opponent on the race track
    at all times. Your own car will be represented with a green arrow, where as 
    your opponent's cars will be represented with a circular gray icon. 
    
    ................
    Current Position
    ................
    
    On the top left hand corner you will find your current position in the race. 
    It will be represented in the form "X/8", where X is your position out of the 
    8 drivers in this race. For example, "3/8" would indicate you are currently 
    placed third out of the eight racers. Keep an eye out for your position, as the
    higher you place the more credits and XP you earn. And who would want to place 
    last, anyway?
    
    .........................
    Car Behind/In Front Times
    .........................
    
    In the space of the top center of the screen is the location where the game 
    will occasionally display how many seconds the car in front of you is leading,
    and how many seconds the car behind you is trailing. To be more specific, these
    indicators appear generally when you pass a split section of the track, where
    your current lap time is compared to the previous. This happens because the 
    game also calculates the time when the car in front and behind passes those 
    points, so the differences between you and them can be calculated. This is a
    very important indicator especially if you're trying to lose an opponent that 
    is behind you, or catch up to one that is in front of you. You can check these
    times and see if they are decreasing or increasing to know how well you are 
    faring. 
    
    .........
    Lap Times
    .........
    
    On the top right hand corner on the screen there are a few different lap times.
    Your best lap, last lap, and current lap will be shown here. Best lap indicates
    the best time you have made on this track since the start of the race, last lap
    indicates the lap time you achieved on the previous lap in this race, and curr-
    ent lap indicates the current time you've spent on this lap of the race. These
    times are useful as an indication as to if you're improving lap times or not. 
    If not, you are probably not doing as well as you can in this race.  
    
    ....................
    Condition Indicators
    ....................
    
    Right below your lap times is where you will find the indicators for the condi-
    tion of your car. These will usually only a appear when you take severe damage,
    but you can turn these indicators on by pressing the right button on the d-pad.
    These indicators are extremely important as to showing the condition of your 
    car- but only when you have your settings to damage set to "limited" or "simul-
    ation". A car icon will appear when your car gets damaged, and the area of the
    car that is damaged will be represented as a tint on this icon with either 
    yellow, orange, or red. Yellow indicates minor damage, orange indicates serious
    damage, and red indicates extreme amounts of damage. 
    
    ...........
    Speedometer
    ...........
    
    Ah of course, how can your HUD feel complete without your speedometer? Your 
    speedometer is located on the bottom right of the screen. It indicates your 
    current speed, gear, and the assist(s) that are being turned on at the moment. 
    Your speed is important for determining how you are going to brake in the next
    corner, where as your current gear is important for players that have selected
    manual transmission. 
    
    
    *******************************************************************************
      2.3... New Features
    *******************************************************************************
    
    A lot of you are probably wondering what exactly have Turn 10 done to make 
    Forza 2 into Forza 3. At the surface it may look like Forza 2 with an expansion
    pack and better graphics and sound, but in fact it's much more than that. Read
    on to find out all the additions and changes the guys at Turn 10 have made. 
    
    ...............
    Rewind Function
    ...............
    
    This new function allows you to rewind your race at any time. Aside from not 
    being able to rank your lap times in the leaderboards with those that did not 
    use this feature in their times, there is absolutley no penalty for using this
    function. This is extremely good news for the newbies and less experienced 
    racers out there- every time you make a mistake, rewind and try again. Yes, and
    it's not cheating, since you need to do all the racing yourself no matter how 
    much you use this rewind feature.
    
    Note: I have noticed many of the more experienced players have been saying that
          they feel this feature is cheap. Simply don't use it guys! I stopped usi-
          ng this feature around the fifth hour of play, and I have no problem 
          avoid using it. Just remember if you do happen to be really unlucky and 
          make an incredibly silly mistake in a long race, it's still there for you
          to use. 
    
    ..........
    Car Levels
    ..........
    
    Forza games always had driver levels, but this time round you have that and 
    car levels. Car levels are the levels of each of your individual cars, and they
    determine how much experience that car has on the track and how much reputation
    that car has. Each time you gain a car level your reputation goes up and you 
    recieve discounts from different upgrade shops for this particular car's manuf-
    acturer. 
    
    Another change on leveling is the prizes you get for leveling up your driver
    level. Each time you level up your driver, you gain respect from a particular
    manufacturer, and they give you a car as a gift. There are 50 driver levels to
    achieve, and around 50 manufacturers in the game, so I figure you get one gift 
    car from each manufacturer.
    
    ................
    Paint and Design
    ................
    
    The variety of colors, decals, and vinyls have increased in Forza 3. This gives
    everyone a wider range of things to make their car design unique. Also for 
    those that always creat superb designs with the paint and design tools, you 
    have more tools to go crazy with now. 
    
    ..................
    Graphics and Sound
    ..................
    
    Although this is an obvious and inevitable 'change' from Forza 2 to Forza 3, 
    it is still worth mentioning because of the stunning results. The guys at Turn
    10 have remodelled every single car and they claim that each car has twice the
    number of polygons as those that were in Forza 2. The best part though is they
    actually modelled each car's interior to match the real version of the cars.
    So those that wanted the cockpit view back in Forza 1 or 2, it's here with a 
    lot of detail.  
    
    They also made all the tracks much more realistic and sharp, and also 
    (thankfully) improved the animations and looks of the audience. And the biggest 
    hit is that they managed to make thegame run at a constant 60 fps, meaning 
    there are no slow downs no matter what.
    
    The sound is also improved, as each individual car has been fitted with either
    the real engine sounds of their real-life counterpart, or something similar. 
    There is much more variety in engine sounds this time. The soundtrack is also 
    more fitting this time, both in races and when you're scrolling through the 
    menus. 
    
    ........................
    More Accessible- Assists
    ........................
    
    A rather large change and an incredible feat by the developers Turn 10, they 
    managed to make the game much more accessible. This welcomes all sorts of new
    audience to play, and not only those that usually don't play racing games but
    also those that usually don't play games at all. 
    
    They did this by improving the range of assists available in the game. You can
    now turn on and off four major assist systems of your car, and one of these 
    assists actually help those that don't brake well around corners to... brake. 
    It's done really well as now even my mum can play this game. The suggested line 
    can now be turned on, off, or even into 'braking only' mode, where the line 
    only appears when you need to break. They also made the easiest A.I. difficulty
    a easier than in the previous game, which again helps those that usually don't
    play this type of game. 
    
    ......................
    More Than 100 New Cars       
    ......................
    
    They took out a few cars from Forza 2, and added more than a hundred new unique
    cars into the game. Many of these added cars are really famous, like the 
    Lamborgini Reventon for example. And since Forza 2's collection of cars were
    thought of as one of the best set, you will no doubt find this game's list of 
    cars one of the best ever.
    
    ..................
    Tons of New Tracks
    ..................
    
    Loads and loads of new race tracks can be found in the game- they doubled the 
    number of tracks this year. There are all sorts of new tracks and the result is
    you get a racing game with every track you'd want to race on. 
    
    ...............
    New Career Mode
    ...............
    
    Career mode has been changed this time to being the entire Forza experience. 
    In the main menu you can choose between "Forza Motorsport 3" and "Free Race".
    Forza 3 option brings you into your career, where as free race has the arcade
    type quick races, hot laps, and split-screen. In your career page you can 
    choose "Go Race" which will bring you to a menu to choose between racing in a 
    season (Season Play) and choosing individual events to take part. 
    
    Season play has you competing in events you have chosen, while competing in 
    world championships every two weeks on Sunday. This makes you feel more like a 
    real racer, where you are actually racing as the days goes by. However by 
    selecting the Events List you can take part in any even you have unlocked- 
    provided you have cars in your garage that are eligble to enter the said event.
    
    There are more than twice the number of events from Forza 2 in Forza 3, and 
    more variety and styles of racing this time round as well. I believe the actual
    number of events come around about 220+. That's more than 1100 races guys.
