How to Unlock Drivetrain Swap Guide for Forza Motorsport 8
Becomes available at Car Level 50 (max level).
The drivetrain swap upgrade in Forza Motorsport 8 (2023) is unlocked once you car reaches level 50 which is essentially the maximum for all vehicles in the game. It will obviously take you a while to max out a single car in the game due to the massive amounts of car XP you need to grind.
Because of this, try to focus on leveling up only a small number of your favorite cars instead of constantly buying new ones in the beginning of Career mode.
Benefits of Drivetrain Swap
Allows you to drastically change the behavior of your car.
The main reason for switching your car’s default drivetrain into a different one is to be able to change it to the general performance configuration that you prefer, whether it is all-wheel drive (AWD), front-wheel drive (FWD), or rear-wheel drive (RWD). Factors such as top speed, cornering, steering, and weight distribution all change after a car has undergone a drivetrain swap.
Being able to modify a car’s drivetrain is especially useful for making a vehicle more suited for performing certain maneuvers such as drifting or making them viable in specific racing events.
Opens up opportunities for more intricate tuning.
After a drivetrain swap, you may need tune your car to cover any new drawbacks that came with the conversion. This may be appealing to players who find excitement in constantly customizing their vehicle to achieve the performance and handling that they are most comfortable with.
Other Drivetrain Swap Mechanics
Drivetrain swap is unlocked individually for each car.
All level-based car upgrades, including drivetrain swap, are only accessible to the specific cars that unlock them at their required levels. You will need to grind XP for other cars if you want to apply the upgrade to them as well.
