Note that #Forzathon Shop prices have changed....

And they'll keep changing until we get a few seasons with actual things to spend FP on... Sitting here with over 5000 FP and everything owned already... By next week I'll be sitting on about 6000 and the prices will change again because of this...

I realise the prices don't change just because of how much I personally have but there is quite a majority of players in a similar situation which DOES affect prices...

Sweet. An event that requires the worst sounding car in the game. Spectacular. Guess an engine swap is in order. :/

Each time I do a "Community Championship" : the AI struggles to do complete the race without missing a checkpoint or hit a tree... which is hilarous to see when it happens.

Well, I would have bought a second Hotwheels Mustang, but since the prices got jacked, and everything's a premium now, I'll probably just hang on to my FP... At least until the devs decide I have too much banked and jack the prices again.

The Jeep? It's the first time it's been in the Forzathon shop.
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.

Part of the game is to become rich if you ask me, I mean buying castles would suggest that, but PG think they have to alter that situation even though they started it.

Quick tips:
- The Audi S1 can hit 155mph downhill in stock form, despite the tuning screen saying the max speed is 154.8mph, so you don't need to waste time tuning it or upgrading it.
- I made a short easy win blueprint at Moorhead Rally Trail if anyone wants to use that to quickly win 2 dirt races for the Audi S1 forzathon.
- My S1 '08 Viper tune is very good for the Viper championship, I was in the lead about 11 seconds into each race. It has rally/snow tyres, as when I created the tune I found those were actually faster for road racing anyway, as the car has so much grip that the PI is better spent on more power / less weight.
- For the Trial I used Jadigafer7's tune of the VW Bug, and I specifically advise not to try it with the Rip Rod, like I did the first time, totally underestimating just how bad it was possible for a car to be.
- For the modern rally championship I used a totally stock 2005 Impreza, and that won easily enough, though not as crazily easily as the Viper wins its event.
- Seasonal speed and jump PR stunts not too hard with a X Mosler with rally tyres, I have a tune shared for that if anyone wants to use that, too.

At least the drop to 80% will give PG useful info on which bits people like least. I got to 80% today without doing the community championship or the playground games, as those are by far the worst parts of it all IMO.

I wish people would stop making easy win blueprints. I would call that yet another bug in the game.

Same here. I just don't get it. If they are not going to make it available again in the Forzathon shop then at least make it available to win in the next Series Playlist. Hey even make it the 80% car for the entire series if you want to make it hard on people. It's ridiculous that we were only able to obtain this car the first week the game came out. Many missed out on it either because we hadn't qualified for the Horizon Festival yet or did not have the game. And before anyone responds with.....you can get one in the Auction House....sorry that's not that easy. I try almost every night. Also if you ask around here to buy one people want 20m for one. Sorry......I don't have that kind of loot because I do not cheat.

Also, I don't understand the point in raising the FP costs if there is nothing worth buying. Put some new cars in there so people want to spend their money, or at least put something exclusive or expensive from the Autoshow in there to buy.

LOL, I DID improve. I freed up my time with that easy win blueprint, allowing me to spend more time becoming a better driver in GT Sport, rather than trundling along completing a set of chores in FH4.

If they want people to become better drivers, they should make a game around that not around doing chores.

Like Uncle Scrooge always said; work smarter, not harder.

But seriously, I'm not a huge fan of using blueprint abuse on these challenges. Only as an absolute last recourse.
