On the last part, the 250,000 skill score ... With yesterday's fix for the Great Skill Point Disappearance, I was gifted 12,000+ skill points to reapply to my cars. When I took a break from that tedious task last night, I went in freeroam for a bit and noticed that my skill scores were not making points; this didn't surprise me because I read that no points will be given until I go below the 999 cap. But even though I won't be getting points, any skill scores I get with my '60 Vette (the ONLY TRUE classic sports car IMHO) will still be counted toward the challenge, true?

Convertible came in last in ever race I was in, there were 2, both top pi.

Best car seemed to be 09 mini. I used 12 mini but there was always an 09 or 3 beating me.

4 race event, 2 of 4 races all players beat all ai. Never lost an event.

Me too. Wasn't planning on getting 100% anyway, but won't be getting that PR stunt for sure.

The other events should more than make up for it.

Honestly, this series hasn't been too bad so far. The 80% completion prizes are all cars that I already have, so no stress if I don't get them. Not that I've had any trouble with that, since the Car Files essentially counts as bonus points, so I had no trouble getting 80% last week, even though I wasn't trying, and skipped 2 championships. I could have theoretically skipped The Trial last week too, if I'd wanted to.

I officially take back anything bad I said about having the Car Files as part of the series playlist. It actually made the whole thing easier. Other "stories"... well... we'll cross that bridge if/when we come to it.

During a prior stream, the devs said "we know you have a lot of points, and we're always looking for ways to take those off your hands."

Is this really what you meant?

Same here. I was disappointed to see that drifting event there but a think it’s probably a middle finger to the community as there’s been a few people complaining about drifting events recently.

I don't take it personally. They don't come up that often. I think the last one was maybe 3 or 4 weeks ago. I don't see very many drifters in here complaining "oh, another seasonal Danger Sign."

True, I wouldn't expect every event to cater to everyone. They should really come up with a reward loop that reflects that.

Don't forget about the Golden Plaque that goes in your trophy case, can't settle for anything less than a wall full of GOLD!!!! 100% or Bust! And didn't you hear... you get the Jet from the Showcase Remix added to your garage once you reach 6 consecutive Golden Plaques, I can't wait to fly around the map shaking everyone's screens!!!!:

For Drift Challenges I would recommend to adjust the Difficulty Settings to: turn OFF Traction Control and Stability Control, and change Shifting to Manual (Stay In 3rd Gear).
Once I read this online, It made it much easier for me to dominate all Drift Challenges.
Hope this helps,
Thanks,

I went for the 1965 Mini for the trial, not realising that it's not an autoshow car. I have no idea how it came to be in my garage!

Did the trial twice to test the tune before sharing it. Won all 8 races.

Yes true. Like many others, I now have more than 999 points so until I go below the 999 points cap, any points I earn will appear briefly on screen and then disappear into the ether. I've completed the weekly Forzathon and confirm that any points earned in a classic sports car will count towards the Forzathon challenge.

I'm very poor at drifting but tried the seasonal drift challenge just as an exercise knowing that I wouldn't get anywhere near the target.

I nearly fell off my chair when I achieved it. Used the 2006 Formula Drift #43 Dodge Viper SRT10 with an upgrade/tune by KenBlocksSohn called GODLIKE DRIFTING. Keep in 1st (manual gear) and turn off traction, stability, and abs.

I won 2 races with convertible so it's ok car to use.

Other 2 races came 3:rd and 4:th, starting from last place on those races just couldn't get passes done quickly enough, but didn't matter anyway because our team won 4-0

It's a shame really, because the Ford GT MKII was the only remaining thing left profitable in the auction. So this doesn't help the auction at all.

I'm curious what you're not going to do to get 100%?? Just looked at leader board and you've got over 110k on that drift pr stunt. You some sort of sand bagger??
