Wow that's a lot of grinding. A bit disappointed, too; when the update stream said they were introducing Street Scene into the seasonal content, I was expecting a seasonal championship.

I can't play the seasonal Coop-Championships in my Convoy for some reason. It says: "This feature is not available in convoy." Is it supposted to be like this? Me and my crew enjoyed playing the championships together.

Maybe, I don't remember exactly what was said, and I don't feel like going through an hour of video to find out. It's possible I mis-heard.

Not especially excited for another weekly event with a Mitsubishi, and the events do not excite me in the least.

I will probably just do 4 Live Events instead, which usually take less than 10 minutes and are a lot more fun for me.

Does anyone know if the Championship for the Hot Wheels Mustang can that be done SOLO... or does it require multiplayer?

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons... sometimes, we just snuggle.

It's the Community Route Championship, should not need to be done in MP.
Rules of troubleshooting:
1) Have you tried turning it off and on again?
2) Is your Internet working?
3) https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live-status < Check here for service issues.
4) If all else fails open a service ticket and/or forum post.

This week's Trial was an absolute doddle compared to last week's. We hammered the drivatars in every race at the first attempt, but maybe we had a strong team.

I won all 3 races with my tune of the 2010 Maserati GT-S, shared as "A800 all round". I'm also joint 97th on the leaderboard for the Moorhead Wind Farm rivals with it (one of the tracks in this Trial).

The Mustang was an easy win, after a sideways first round win with almost no grip in the 2014 Golf, I upgraded to a wide body rally tune with optimised gearing and the remaining two races were straight foward beating the AI by nearly 10 secs in both races. No power upgrades required as that just makes the AI faster which isn't all that helpful on a wet twisty track.

The one with the constant hard turns in may need an odd rewind if you miss your braking point but you really open up a big gap once you get to the quarry.

Shared if you're looking for a Golf tune

A nice easy trial this week for a change!
Missed a checkpoint after the roundabout on the second race and only managed to get back up to 10th. :(

But won the other two with a lot of my team close behind.

It's the first time I've got it....first time, YAY!. :)

Also came first in in all three races in the seasonal to with the "Hotwheels Mustang".

Not particularly hard, but very easy using the "2013 Mercedes Benz A45 AMG".

I did use my own tune, which the car already had applied from a past event.

Anyhoo, it worked well for me with relative ease, so have renamed it "Spring Forzathon" if anyone wants to try it.

There may actually be better tunes, but this one worked for me and I had "Traction Control" & "Stability Control" switched "OFF".

Quick Note: For anyone thinking the second race is getting away from them, persevere and do not quit! The AI mess up along the way and you can get way ahead once you get near the quarry section.

I can't do the Street Scene Challenge
Any tips? I can't even get round the tracks at high speed. Perhaps my car is too fast?

The worst mistake you can make in street races is tuning your car up too far - the opponents will always match your PI, and the twisty tracks with lots of hairpins and 90 degree corners are much easier with a slower car. I have uploaded a C-class tune with the very original name "forzathon" if it helps anyone - it's not the best tune ever, but it gets the job done nicely and can even be used for the drag events.

Side question, what track are you guys using for farming the showoff skills? I can manage one occasionally, but I find them surprisingly difficult to do intentionally and in quick succession.

Thanks a lot. Your tune did the trick for me!
