When it comes to being a gear stick, we want to drive the most exotic cars in the world. And not very slowly, at least not all the time. As a result, games like the Forza Horizon 5 allow you to gain experience with such cars – supercars, vintage, iconic or even slow and old. The Forza Horizon 5 is one of the best games for gearheads because it has different terrains: sand dunes, mountain ridges, coastlines, long highways for speed runs, tunnels, snowy peaks, narrow city roads, even a volcano. It has cars that have been carefully designed and programmed to look realistic and proportionate to, as well as sound and drive, their real-life avatars.
Since going fast is something we all love, we often find ourselves driving the fastest cars in Forza Horizon 5, there is an experience that is less talked about. What if you just wanted to do crazy things between your pursuit of better lap times and faster top speeds?
Well, if you want to have fun and laugh while playing Forza Horizon 5, here are some of our recommendations to get you started.
The 1973 AMC Gremlin X is a Wheelie Monster
Let’s start by talking about the desire to do what we’ve seen Dominic Toretto from the Fast and Furious film series do: a wheelie! A good tap on the accelerator and pointing the front wheel towards the sky is a feeling that never gets old. And while you can tune almost any car in Forza Horizon 5 to do this, we recommend doing it first in the 1973 AMC Gremlin X. It’s not terribly expensive, as it costs 35,000 CR at the Auto Show. You can also get these through a Wheelspin or as a Super Wheelspin prize. While it’s a fairly modest car with a 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine that puts out 150 horsepower and a 3-speed transmission, with the right upgrades you can turn it into a wheelie monster.
We recommend using the tune “Insane Wheeling” from “SoFT EaZzy” (you can search for tuning setups). It matches the car with a sweet 7.0 liter V8, the weight drops to 2600 lbs. The tuning setup boosts power to over 1,500 horsepower with over 1,100 pound-feet of torque, all sent to the rear wheels. It also makes the rear suspension incredibly hard and the front suspension extremely soft. The result is a car that makes a wheelie from the get-go and the wheels go up with every gear too!
The 1972 Reliant Supervan III is just stupid
The Reliant Supervan III is another car that costs 35,000 CR or can be found as a prize in Wheelspin or Super Wheelspin. As standard, the Supervan III has a 0.7-liter naturally aspirated in-line 4-cylinder engine that delivers a modest 32 horsepower and 38 pound-feet of torque. It’s a slow car, but it’s a slow three-wheeled car, and you can see where we’re going.
We recommend trying out the song “Drag Queen” from “ProbablyAnAsdf”. This will equip your car with training wheels to prevent it from rolling over (it doesn’t look funny). It puts a 2.0-liter engine tuned to push 667 horsepower and 683 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels and gives the Reliant a top speed of over 200 miles per hour! Remember, it now weighs just 1087 lb and with so much power it’ll have you leaning over and rolling in all directions.
The Peel P50 from 1962 is madness
There’s nothing quite like the Peel P50 in Forza Horizon 5. While this is a hard-to-find car, we recommend going to the auction house, where it’s much easier to find. Once you have it, you will see that it is a recipe for madness. It comes standard with a 0.048 liter single-cylinder engine that makes 4 horsepower and weighs a measly 310 lbs.
We recommend putting on “DuckKing3722″‘s “Drag Peel” tune, which boosts power to 292 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque…to three wheels! That’s crazy power for a car with a 50 inch wheelbase. The result is insane burnouts, 360s and a car that is challenging to drive even in the tightest corners. But it’s a riot all the time and therefore extremely fun. Try, very slowly, to get to another car and drive away, leaving you and everyone else around you in crevices.
Feel free to try this one, and you’ll find a new way to experience the Forza Horizon 5. It may not be the fastest, but it will definitely be a lot of fun.
