To obtain the new vehicle, the Rip Rod, you have to place 1st in a PvP Drag Championship. 4 races, one at each of the drag strips (except the winter ice one). Only the player who places first in the championship will get the Rip Rod. I think this could be an extremely frustrating week...

Only if they have fixed the issue with the 60 weekly challenge bonus points not being received but they just didn't include it in the patch notes.

If by frustrating you mean great fun then I totally agree! This is sheer genius! I'm loving the challenge already and I've not placed better than 6th yet and NO I am NOT being sarcatic here, I genuinely am loving it!

Yeah, PVP drag races. That's.. fun. /facepalm

Even more fun.. Third place! Because that's literally all I'm getting with every car and tune I try. FML.

I completed all of mine before I came to work this morning. The Volvo challenge wasnt working for me on the last season. It was suggested to switch the video from performance to quality or vice versa and that should fix it. It did work for me it might work for you.

On another note, I cant remember which thread but someone pointed out the island seasonal looked to be repeats AGAIN this week, damn that was a great observation. Someone is paying more attention than I am
Forza junkie since FM2. Horizons are the break I need from the track. 🏁🏁

I was out on the road, paused, Cars, chose the Evo X for delivery, and the first challenge requirement popped as soon as I started accelerating.

Try doing that with a different car, then again with the Evo X. Also try rebooting to see if that cleans up a sync.


In previous events some players have noticed that the units setting needed to be in Imperial instead of Metric to work; I don't know if that's at all related but you could test that in this instance if it applies to you.

You sir/maam have just opened my eyes to something. I've never done co-op or PVP seasonal stuff because I always assumed the prizes were the same. Now i'll actually keep a closer eye on that now. Thank you

What a disappointment with the once again repeated championships on Fortune Island. What are they thinking?

This happened to me, too. And unfortunately it seems 2nd and 3rd place is the best i am able to achieve. This is frustrating.

this championship is a pain enough if it would work properly Ive been disconnected and missed out on a round a few times now or started a bit off the others -_- whoever decided this for the sake of those with poor internet and our sanity dont ever do this again


Edit: after hours of this and despite getting rammed off of the juggernaut and attempts from a guy in the second run I got it - tune I used is a 40 deluxe by agrafetoast7828 it has longer gear ratios and topend though struggles on the left side of the juggernaut

I have to say the rip rod win requirement is ridiculous, I have tried and what do you know a few players in same cars, same specs yet they finish miles ahead of anyone else, what else can I say other than the cheats are going to have a blast with this championship whilst so many of us don't get to own rip rod. Cheating has always been a major problem in drag events yet devs thought perfect idea to have us place 1st to get an exclusive car online in public match up. Maybe letting us do it in convoy so we can play with our friends and stand a chance at winning. Stupid event and I can see from this post I am not alone in my way of thinking. I really wanted this car as I am a big fan of hotwheels
