I tried to do it last night to get the 70 2J race car and it never came up after 15 try's. I kept getting old muscle cars or POS foreign dirt boxes.

Did they patch it so you cant be gifted a good car for birthdays maybe?

Why won't the game let you buy 2 of the same cars? I have an FGT but if I want to gift/trade it - I can't buy another one later when I have enough credits??

I'm pretty sure you can. Are you getting it from the collector/online UCD? If so you just need to wait till they refresh the list and stock up on another one.... whenever that is.

Besides, I have like 3 Ford GTs lol

Yes - from the collector bit - it's greyed out now - no stock or something I think it says.

Yep, just be patient and it'll come back eventually. So far I've only seen the online UCD restock like once. Anyone here know how often it does it?

it mimics a used car lot. it's not typical that a used car dealer has 2 or 3 of the same car (identical mileage, color, condition, etc.)

also, look at the ending date of the seasonal events. usually the day one round ends, another begins and the online lot is updated.

So if I wait till the 20th, I'll be able to buy another FGT?. I want the x2010 and the FGT is the trade car. That said, thats a lot of grinding Indy to get the funds back up.

That's the exact track I grind too. 5 laps in the American race thing for 117K is about as good as it gets. For me I try to mix it up a bit, like alternating between my Ford GT LM racer and my #99 Fusion. Roughly 30 minutes of driving gets you a million

I did, thank you much! I was actually thinking about buying one right when you sent it.

As that was a worthwhile car, any cars you want from me? As long as I can buy it again somewhere and it's not ridiculously expensive , you can have it

that's interesting yours said out of stock, must have JUST happened, late last night they were in stock.

if 1trip gets a FGT by the time I'm able to get rid of mine, you can be next in line if you'd like .

Anyone have a formula gran turismo or X2010 I can get? I don't have anything too great to trade, I'm just hoping someone can do me a solid...

To trade, I have most of the classic race cars P4, 2J, Ford Mark IV, 2D. I also have a murdered out LFA that's pretty B.A.

Can anyone help me out?

I cant think of anything. I just picked up a few cool cars in used dealer section. I got an 03 Vanquish, 00 CTR2, and an 03 M3 CSL. Send me whatever you think is cool. I dont have any audi's besides the TT. I have no other Chevy's below the vettes, and same goes for the dodges. I have a couple of Vipers. No mercedes either. I have the important Fords.

If anyone is interested in trading for a modded Nissan R89C Race Car (never used yet), I'd be interested in what you have.

Reading the description on these in GT kinda makes me appreciate them more.

Have a Toyota 7 I no longer need. I don't need the jag though as I've done the historic races. I need a Ford GT Le Mans 2 or something similar to win the b spec indy

EDIT - nvmnd - did it with the 2J

Thanks for the thought Paul, but I gave it one more try after fiddling with the transmission tuning, and my Bob was able to pull off the win. That Alfa is sexy!


However I updated my previous post, a completely stock (undriven) '66 Jag XJ13 is still available.

I think that is my next car to buy. I saw one in real life parked on the side of the road near my house. It is a short mountain road that is usually not traveled. I thought about stopping and asking for a ride, but I think he was having issues. I think he can afford AAA though.

It was black with red accent line along the door. It sounds weird I know but it was actually really nice looking. Thought it was Jay Leno at first but his is all black.
