Not used anything else but the Pulsar is almost certainly the best choice for the trial, trial itself seems easy enough though I wouldn’t know about the 3rd race since I got DC’ed midway through Mortimer Gardens.

Just classic FH4 though I guess.

You can do 3 of the 5 races from the Forzathon in the C class offroad championship, Better PG that is better.

Yay its winter time and I have a bit time to play :slight_smile:
Nice and very easy trial, if you don’t forget its winter and you need to put your wither tires on the car :slight_smile:
Maybe my pick doesn’t look as a winner at the start, as its kinda slow, but when it gets to bends … it takes them full throttle and says bye to slidy cars.
So dirt racing in Japanese cars of B 700 and easy choice, 3x 1st for me and somehow 3:0 for team (someone quit on second to give us the win and we lost last one big time, but somehow got the win …)
Subaru Impreza 22B, tune - 181 227 568

Trial quick and swiftly out of the way, lets move to solo championships and lets start with some cross country racing in A 800 super saloons … erm … well ok
Remember a trial and cars already used there, so easy pick
Alfa Romeo Giulia QV, tune - 129 973 624
or BMW 1 series M coupe, tune - 103 264 539

Next on the list is again cross country racing in C 600 offroaders and simply reuse last trials car that brought me all 3 wins there
Lambo LM 002, tune - 658 261 258

Last on the list is dirt racing in C 600 retro rally cars and it seems I can get away with running on stock tires and still have decent grip
Ford Racing Puma, tune - … (tune shared, but can’t get the code)

PR stunts as always Koenigsegg Agera RS, tune - 167 849 655 for speed trap and danger sign, used Hoonigan RS200, tune 428 155 751 for offroad speed zone.

Forzathon car … well truck is Ford Ranger Raptor, tuned it to A 800 - (tune shared, but can’t get the code), took it to the beach to collect those crash landings, use aerodrome ramps to get a barrel roll and just reused my short custom road race blueprint at Lakehurst forest sprint - 691 610 875

Finished with taking a pic of my GT-R

As always hope this can be of any use to someone, take care everyone and have fun, bb

PS
For some reason I can’t get share codes for new tunes (both Fords), will update this post if I finally get them.

For now you have to find tuning the old way, by Gamertag, Search, …

Retro Rally, C600, Dirt: Almost fell asleep, slow cars, too grippy, no fun.

Offroad, C600, CC: Choice between power or snow tires, not very fun with power build, no lateral grip whatsoever.

Super Saloons, A800, CC: Surprisingly good, if you pick a suitable car, I used the Volvo wagon, very good suspension.

Forzathon with Ranger Raptor, I don’t need an excuse to drive this truck, it’s great in pretty much every way, and it’s not exclusive either, which is a bonus.

PR Stunts are a job for the champ Hoonigan RS200, it can clear all three, easily.

Photo Contest in my home, Bamburgh Castle, very easy. I took a pretty nice photo of my rally-built Z432.

Also did the Trial since they were offering an MR2. What a joke, too easy, those Drivatars are New Racer level, not Unbeatable. I ran an Evo IX with snow tires and not much else. Won 2 of 3 races by a large distance.

The car of the week is the GMC Typhoon. It’s like the Syclone, but with some differences. The Syclone has wider rear tire options, but the Typhoon is heavier and can be built for more power while staying A800. Overall a good port, with some nice paint choices, including dual-color. The Syclone is more handling, the Typhoon is more straight line speed.

Did I hear “Super Saloons?” Is it time for me to break out the CC Limo again? I believe it is. lol

I saw that this week’s Forzathon was a Raptor…and I thought I was good. But I had a 150 Raptor, not a Ranger Raptor. So if anyone is running around in their ‘Raptor’ and it’s not registering, make sure you have the right one. I’ve seen them listed between $100-200k on the auction.

The Ranger Raptor is an Autoshow car so don’t buy for 100-200k!

No kidding! Got bored yesterday so I kept buying Ranger Raptors from the autoshow for 58k and selling in the auction house for 110k buyout. After 4 or 5 I raised the price to 200k and they were still selling, so I raised the price to 300k and still they bought. Did some more before eventually getting bored, so I kept one to do some crash landings, find a spot to do a barrel roll then some races.

You can do that for any given single forzathon car. I made 2m Cr on Viper GTSs a few months ago. I’m not sure about double cars, like the M3/RS6 from last week. It was really fun when the Supra dropped. I might do the raptor tomorrow and make a few extra million.

Same here. So I had actually bought one through the Auction House before finding out (thank you, Jezza) that they are in the autoshow. So I checked the auction house and they were still listing high there. So I listed the one I bought, sold it for a profit then got one from the autoshow. So far have sold 12 Raptors through the auction house. When it doesn’t sell, I’ll do the challenge with it. lol

Fair play to you for taking advantage of it for some easy money.

It really is a poor reflection on the general FH4 player base though when they can’t/won’t think of something as simple as checking the autoshow.

Oh, oops. lol Sorry for the bad advice.

That’s happened before where I have seen stock autoshow cars being sold in the auction for way over price. Never understand that.

Hello,

Cars/tunes/suggestions for some of this weeks seasonal for those that find such useful. All tunes are my own, unless otherwise noted, all shared by myself (or others). ~ tune name / share code. If you use anything offered here, and you like it/it was useful to you, please don’t forget to leave a like.

Online:
**Trial: “Plus Ultra” | Dirt Racing | (B700) Japan
**Car used: 1974 Toyota Corolla SR5 (HTF)
**Tune: B700 Dirt / 138 611 791

As mentioned elsewhere above, the Trial (online) A.I. is certainly easy this week. Using something I feel not many others may try, yes it is rare, I think only offered two or three times (certainly twice, not sure on 3), the 1974 Corolla - worked much better than expected too. Ran it against offline/solo A.I. on clones of the Trial races, but for Ambleside, can gain 1st against unbeatable A.I. - with more practice Ambleside would/should be doable too. Car/tune lacks top-end vs. other options for this Trial, making the one sprint event the harder event for it, on the two circuit events I managed 1st by between 8~10 seconds, much more vs. closest A.I. Tune is AWD, supercharged, no bumpers, no aero, rally/snow tires.

**Seasonal Playground Games | Bamburgh Castle | (D500) Classic Rally
**Car used: 1973 Ford Escort RS1600 (Autoshow 73,000 Cr)
**Tune: D500 Road Rally / 948 043 878

Used this tune because it was ready to go, and didn’t feel like making a Mini tune just for games - however turns out, just have most of your team arrive in stock untuned Minis, and you will win… What I noticed for all tuned cars in the event was they acted much the same, lack of power, no grip at times, bogged down in turns, trouble getting up some of the gradients, this includes for the one full tuned Mini I encountered, yes it was fast, but still suffering, hence untuned Mini is basically as good. Tune is RWD, no aero, lights, vintage tires.

PR Stunts:

  • Croft Speed Zone, 1978 Hoonigan Ford Escort RS1800 - ‘S900 Rally Trial’ (680 307 281),
  • Quarry Speed Trap, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - ‘PR Stunt Rally’ (120 633 544),
  • Arthur’s Seat Danger Sign, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - ‘PR Stunt Rally’ (120 633 544).

Enjoy.

Hi!

Cars/tunes/suggestions for the rest of this weeks seasonal for those that find such useful. All tunes are my own, unless otherwise noted, all shared by myself (or others). ~ tune name / share code. If you use anything offered here, and you like it/it was useful to you, please don’t forget to leave a like.

Solo championships - Raced against Expert, Steering: Simulation, ABS: on, Traction/Stability: Off, Gearbox: Auto.

**Championship: “Last Chance Saloon” | Cross Country | (A800) Super Saloons
**Car used: 2013 Cadillac XTS Limousine (HDF)
**Tune: A800 Rally / 100 104 748

This solo was raced against "unbeatable" and not “expert”, because I wanted to see how it worked, otherwise same settings as normal for solo championships.

Did someone say “Super Saloons”? Bring out the Caddy Limo time! As stupid as it may seem, this car/tune is a quite good and capable offroad machine, only requires adjust driving style to suit the length of Limo. Easy enough wins at all locations, car is especially good at the Gardens race. Tune is AWD, rally/snow tires, supercharged, no aero.
If you want more choices in your Limo, here are two further options (I did not use, but have no doubt they can win too) - no affiliations, beyond first is a fallow forum user, later is a youtuber (check their videos if you wish to see the Limo in use - and they were doubtful, so quite an honest reaction): “Dirt Track Date” (159 333 550) by IngoingCake8592 OR “The Trial” (169 235 039) by Waznewz (youtube).

**Championship: “Beginner’s Truck” | Cross Country | (C600) Offroad
**Car used: 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor (Autoshow 58,000 Cr)
**Tune: C600 Offroad / 171 937 392

Combined this one with the weekly - using the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor. Certainly not my first choice on this event - Ranger is a real underdog in C Class offroad. Even after giving it all the power I reasonably could, and going for as light as possible, this is a very under preforming truck (or my tune choices are just bad?) - very competitive/close wins. Tune is running stock tires with no aero.

**Championship: “Rally 'Round the Flag” | Dirt Racing | (C600) Retro Rally
**Car used: 1980 Renault 5 Turbo (Autoshow 120,000 Cr)
**Tune: C600 Dirt / 725 541 670

The opposite of the above Ranger - the non underdog in its class - Renault 5. First time trying it for C class, yet still it preforms great, very easy wins. Tune is running street tires, with rear Forza air, and AWD.

Have fun.

Thank you for clearing that for me, didn’t know if its just me or what.
Did read about messed up designs and such, but didn’t realize that everything is in disarray.

On side note, I did compare my times for trial tracks in my Subby (stock vs snow tires) - first race can get more or less the same time, second circuit on snow tires gives at least 2 sec a lap faster time, last circuit snow tires give around 6.5 sec a lap advantage.

I hope this helps you to do the challenges

Surprised no one has mentioned the Toyota MR2 95’ and the Toyota Supra 92’. Both cars do very well at the Trial with the Supra being my favourite. Am going to give the Supra 98 a shot and see how that goes. Won consistently in both cars with only one championship where i came in 2nd twice and 1st once up against a Mazda MX5. Was a bit annoyed with that driver as they kept corner bombing me if i got ahead which slowed me down a fair bit, apart from that the speed on it was very quick. In the races i was in the Subby’s didn’t perform that well at all, maybe it was the drivers and their tunes, just seems they always finished back of the pack.

It’s quite an interesting trial because the first course is so different to the last two. The Regalia D should destroy everything else on tracks 2 and 3 but has no top end. The MX5 and Pulsar are very strong on track 1. I used the Mx5 and won all three by 10-20 seconds but think there would be better options.

Never realized the Regalia was Japanese! Of course it was, lol.

Personally I would recommend building for the last two tracks. The AI won’t perform well in the snow, so if you have a car suited to the conditions you’ll win easily, even with subpar build/car choice.
