Forza 3 Three-Wheeler Fun

Yay!

Yay!

Ever since number one son found the Reliant Regal in Forza 3 I've wanted one of my own. And now I've got one. I managed to track down the barn and get the car safely installed in my garage. 

The car does float, but it was so under powered that it actually stopped in the middle of a the river

I promptly upgraded everything to do with the engine and I now have something which will kind of go like a rocket in a straight line but then falls over if you try to turn a corner. Which as I recall is pretty realistic.

However, the thing I find astonishing is the attention to detail in the model. You can visit your cars in the garage, open doors, try the seats for size and look at all the controls. You can even open the bonnet (hood) and take a look at the engine. In the case of the Reliant this has triggered lots of memories of my first ever car. It had a habit of lifting the inside wheel when I was cornering, which passengers found rather disquieting. 

I really, really, love Forza 3. It isn't a game you play, it's a place you visit. I'm running it on my PC and on my Xbox. The PC experience is very, very, good. It seems strange to be able to ALT-TAB from an triple A video game into Visual Studio and back, but you can do just that. Strongly recommended.
