I'm not sure if better with locking or not specifically w/ bugs that might exist in the game, but you have a 165Hz display that supports G-Sync paired with your 1080Ti (normally my answer would be no in that respect)

With your monitor, it's not worth locking the frame rate.

 

I only do it because I get 55-65fps with it unlocked and the tearing is incredibly distracting.

I just finished the longest "normal" length race in the career. 250 miles of Le Mans prototype racing on a Thrustmaster TX wheel with no assists except ABS. Force feedback on 100% and now my fingers hurt from rubbing the Alcantara on my Ferrari steering wheel.

Total time was 1 Hour 48 minutes and 50 seconds.



Only paid out 180K credits before difficulty bonus, but it gives you the car worth 1.25M. Include the 6 level ups I earned that race, I got about 2M worth of credits and cars.




I learned some things about the game now too.

There's dynamic fuel usage that goes up or down based on driving. Across a 18 gallon tank, you could vary about 7% fuel economy depending on how aggressive you drive.

Tire wear is also dynamic. The left side and rear tires were the first to wear out because of the rotation of the track and the fact I didn't use traction control. Once they wore out to yellow status and needed replacement, my lap times had dropped by 7 seconds.

The fuel tank size on the Porsche 919 is exactly large enough to do 7 laps of Le Mans with less than 1 gallon of fuel remaining. The tires also last exactly 7 laps before becoming too worn to finish another lap.

So you lose around 1 second per lap of wear on the tires. Real Le Mans prototype cars lose between .8 and 1 second per lap from tire wear. Seems Turn 10 did an excellent job of balancing out the fuel and tire consumption.

You need to get the Forza driver's cup trophy. Once you earn 50k points, it will unlock extra races.

Another thing you will want to do is make sure you come in first place every race so you get the series completed, and not just passed. You can see if you get the check mark, it means you scored all the points possible. I have a feeling there's hidden unlocks when you finish them all in each section. I'm going to try to finish all the ones in the driver cup and see what happens.

I had to crop out some of the screenshot because of OCN's upload size limit. But it's a 4k screenshot, so you should be able to zoom in and be able to read all the races you unlock. The race covered in the last section by the trophy is bowling with a souped up VW.

Okay, thanks.

 

I just unlocked the Masters cup races, I've been playing the game using long races, so 15-30 minutes per race, 6 races per event, 4 events per cup. It adds up quickly.

That sounds like a good idea to play the longer races. It would more than double the length of the career instead of running through it so quick. I'll probably do long races on the race cars now. The 90's F1 race series went by way too quick.

I wish they did it like Forza 3-4 where you did 2-3 laps in lower end cars. Then once you progress to race cars, you were into the 15+ lap races. I remember doing 20+ lap races in the prototypes and having fun on that game. It felt like a decent accomplishment finishing them knowing there was no short or quick way to do it.

If you complete all the races in one section, you get the car at the bottom shown under that section. Though it appears that those rewards either change or they add new ones when you finish the Forza Cup and unlock the extra races. For example, I think the evolution cup you get an E36 M3 FE for the reward, but yours shows you'll get an F-Type. Wonder if there's any reward after completing EVERYTHING...
