PostSubject: Who is the LeadFoot?   Sat 19 Oct 2013, 10:50 am

Some say he was once bitten by a king cobra, and after 6 days of agonizing pain, the cobra died... and that he puts Roscoe so nervous that makes him crash misteriously into Hiredgun .. all we know is he is not the Stig, but it's the Stig's Costarican cousin! (aka LeadFoot506).

Well guys as I promised Oddball, I was going to let you know who the LeadFoot really is. As you might imagine I've been a car crazy person since very little and started go karting since the age of 7 but was pure sunday driving until I reach the age of 14 where the real races began. There were some years of inactivity but last year I won 3 Endurance races with a fellow driver from the 6 endurance races during the year.

On 2011, I made my debut into car racing, it was only one race of a spec series but I finished fourth. For right now, there are some plans for the future but everything is still pending to see what happens.

Going back to Forza, I remember I wasn't very good in Forza 2 haha, my first online race with Manuel and the rest of the guys was in a Mini Cooper Spec race where a colombian motherfucker (FMXCiroto) took me out in the first turn in Tsukuba and then I finished third or something like that. It was a lesson I learned for the rest of my Forza playing time: Colombian fuckers don't brake!

Then in Forza 3 I became a little better driver since I was getting used to the Microsoft Wireless Wheel of shit that broke after a heavy countersteer while doing some drifting so I went back to the controller life until I got Forza 4. I started the first months using the controller but then a hugee package arrived with a Playseat and the Fanatec CSR Elite and pedals with it. I have to admit that had helped me a little Rolling Eyes 

Since day 1 in Forza 4 I had won championships, first with a Ruf RGT-8 which created a huge controversy because it was the car with least HP and the lightest and was beating camaros, Ferraris and basically anything on the straights but it was within the specs of the championship. I have like a little museum of cars that had made a real difference in the championships I raced and almost included a Volvo S60R but in the last race I rolled over and lost any chances to win, but I consider that a sedan winning against a Panoz, an Alfa (sports cars mainly) deserves a place in the museum.

Another key factor to my sucess is my dad, he helps me out when I have a doubt on a setup. He is the team manager for the Toyota Racing team here in Costa Rica and he knows very well to setup cars. He actually did the setup Pablo, arcmotor and I were running on Suzuka last monday where I was running a time of 52.2 in private practice.

But well that's part of my story, hope you enjoy reading it cheers

It was a go kart with a 250cc engine but all of us were running pretty much the same for 3 hours. There were driver changes and it was very intense.
