Forza Horizon 4

Forza Horizon 5 tips – so do your cars

Original text too short.

Fora Horizon 5 of Playground Games is pretty much fun, whether participating in street races, build new festival sites or find barn finds. While you can customize it that it is so arcade-like as you want, its simulation aspects are still unbelievably robust. This extends the opportunity to upgrade and coordinate pretty much every aspect of your car. While you might think that the automatic upgrade of a vehicle is the A and O to improve performance, manual tuning is a very important key at all that.

Not every race in Fora Horizon 5 is the same. A drag race on straight road emphasizes speed and acceleration, but grip and handling are more important for an off-road race (without sacrificing too much of their speed there). Being able to vote your vehicle based on the conditions and requirements of a race can be a challenge, but also offer a significant advantage.

How to Tune in Forza Horizon 5 | Basics of Tuning Guide
To manually tune your car, go to the garage and choose upgrades and tuning. Look for the Custom Upgrade option to customize every aspect of a car. You can also tune a car from a race, but it is recommended to familiarize yourself with every aspect of tuning and familiarize yourself with what’s best in which scenario works best.
