Took about 7 minutes if that. I racked up steady chains of 50000-100000 x5 really easy. It isn't as good at it as some other cars but it isn't that bad either.


Yes, easy! I was surprised how quick I did it.

What is wrong with daily challenges? I just did the same three times today. It's reseted after some actions like DLC travelling. I need only Playlist percentage and don't care about FP.

It's a known issue since the last update. Once you got it, you got it. You just get a chance to do it again for bonus FP. I don't think it affects playlist percentage, but I haven't checked.

Got second place in the first round of the trial and we won. The second round all but 1 of my team disconnected so even though I came first we lost due to the other guy not finishing them the third round a drivatar rammed me into a wall...

Ambleside is really not suited to A class racing and I can't get close to 1st place. By the time you've crashed your way through the pack (so tight it's impossible to do anything else) the lead cars are so far ahead they can't be caught.

I honestly think Forza has NERFed the seasonal championships. Either that or I just built the perfect car for every challenge this week. I'm a pretty good driver offline, but I'm def not godmode and probably just average +/- online. If I can do it, so can you. All won easily in Unbeatable Mode, Aids off, Normal Steering and Manual w/Clutch


If anyone is still struggling, try these tunes in my Sharefront:

The Trial Co-Op Championship: "Power on the Prairie" - 2014 HSV Gen-F GTS

Championship: "Racing Through the Years -60s” | Gardens Cross Country Circuit | C600 - 1966 Volkswagen DOUBLE CAB PICK-UP

Championship: "Out of Retirement" | Ambleside Sprint | B700 Vintage Racers - 1931 Bentley 4-1/2 LITER SUPERCHARGED

Championship: "Family Car Frenzy" | Horizon Festival Sprint | A800 Super Saloons : I think it was the '09 BMW M5, but could be one of the other years. Either way, just look for the recent M5 tune.


For the Playground Game, my Offroad/Dirt El Camino is a boss.

Finally, my A800 Mustang GT500 tune was a cheap and easy way to breeze through all the challenges. Tons of power for A class, but heavy; so use driving line if you're struggling with breaking pts for Lakehust Forest Sprint. Also, it has no Forza wang and the Racing Suspension so the car looks sweet.


Good luck!

Choose a car with more gear than 6-speed like Panamera. These cars can get better acceleration.
Upgrade the race suspension, race sway bar and race differential, and make settings that induce more oversteer.
(For example, a spring that is softer at the front than at the rear, a ride height that lifts the rear like a hot rod, and a rear toe angle that is set to negative toe)

Ambleside is a very narrow circuit with many sharp turns. And drivaters runs along the assist line and is less susceptible to the drop in grip caused by rain.
To beat them on this circuit, you need better acceleration and more oversteer settings.

*If you still can't beat them: try using a stock car. They upgrade based on the player's car PI, so you can reduce the difficulty of the event a little by choosing a slower car.

Use the Maserati Ghibli which was recommended earlier in the thread. It has insane grip in A class and you can win comfortably by about 3 or 4 seconds on expert. You can easily make up time as there are so many corners.

The Q60 concept is also OP for that event. I’m 2.5 seconds a lap quicker than the drivatars on unbeatable at Ambleside. Just tried the Ghibli and that’s very similar - best lap times were within a tenth of each other.

Have to agree with the poster who suggested that there may have been a bit of lowering of the drivatar standard overall. On the 1960s event I was 8 seconds a lap quicker on unbeatable at the Gardens circuit in the 67 Corvette. Had to check I hadn’t accidentally lowered the standard at some point!

Worst gaming weekend in months. I reach rank 3600 on Friday, tonight I'm down to 3400. Why? Cause these DUMB servers keep matching me with people who just started playing the game yesterday. They don't know the routes nor which cars to choose for events. How do I get 2 straight days of beginner players? Wow, 97% frustration, not hyperbole

Because there simply is no matchmaking? It's completely random and thus a useless game mode. I don't understand why you are still bothering with this grindy, aggressive & unfun waste of time.
I mean, it's barely a test of skill.

I’m stuck at 72% trying to get 80% for the crown vic’ But every time I try any team based games I end up on a team that’s short by a couple of players, this makes me hate Forza more and more, the number of crown vics on the auction house with its new ridiculous pricing structure is just the icing on the cake.

I think Forza is over.

Good god at tier 11 that’s a lot of Forza.

Never wanted to believe it while I was winning but I notice patterns and i'm the only ranked guy on a team of non-ranks, non-star people. We have no chance of winning if 3 players on our team pick cars for cross country. Its a loss before the 1st race even begins

I do not understand how these percentages are calculated. How can I complete all the events but two, and get less than 50%? How can I have done literally everything as of yesterday, and have less than 75%? These "percentages" are nowhere near accurate, and seem to be intentionally weighted on the back end to prevent people from getting the prizes. It's doesn't really pass the smell test.

What are you actually missing? 80% should be doable without either the Trial or PGG but would require you to have done a ranked event.

As long as you have done the Monthly Ranked requirements, which is just participation and not winning, along with the Monthly Rivals, you will reach 86% each week WITHOUT doing Trials and Playground games. You need to pull up the Playlist and just look at what is not turned Gold. That is what you are missing.

Why would the monthly count as part of a weekly, especially if you only have to do it once?

See, this is the problem. These do not make sense, at all. X% of the season's events should mean that season. Those are what I hadn't done, and that's frustrating what percentage they apparently hold behind them. x_x

If you are only 75% you could not have done "literally" everything
Look to the right side of your playlist and see what isnt gold

The monthly rivals and qualifying for ranked do only need to be done once per month but they are part of each weekly playlist..you can do those any time during the month and they will be included on all weeklies
It does make sense to most people

18% for online adventure, 6/7% for rivals(I'm thinking 6%).

If you do both, I believe you start each season with 24% already complete. It's set up this way so you can pick how you wish to get seasonal to 80% if you don't wish to go the full 100%.

Rivals is like a gimmie. You can do adventure and skip trial and PGG, or you can do PGG and trials and skip adventure. With adventure, once you rank, you only have to do one adventure each month for that 18%.

If the monthly didn't count as a percentage for each week what would they count towards? There's only one playlist. Your comment doesn't make much sense. Do the rivals and the ranked first and you have a large percentage (about 24%) of each week already done. It only takes a quick lap in rivals and one ranked adventure (unless you haven't completed unranked before) to complete it. The time it takes to vent about it here in the forums you could be getting it done.

The team Ranked Online games and races are absurdly difficult to get ahead in. People often, not always, drive more aggro in them as well. I commend you for trying, but don't give up on ranked altogether. Free For All is where it's at imo.
