Whitewater Falls CC event with the Defender Series III

You can't enter this event in a Defender Series III, or am I missing something? You just can't choose that car as it's locked to Extreme Offroad.

I know you can bypass it by running like a 2/3-checkpont fake custom blueprint but is this what the game expects from the player?

Is your Defender modified at all from stock?

Same here. Also, in the tab to see upcoming Weeklies, the Porsche 959 is on there twice.

It seems the game doesn't count the distance if the car is moving too short a distance between each update in the physics engine, and the solution is to make the game run at a lower frame rate and the car go ridiculously fast.

If you're on the Xbox One X and the game is running in Performance mode, try switching it to Quality. If you're on the PC, cap the frame rate to 30fps. Also tune the Land Rover to make it as fast as possible.

I have to change my video settings usually. Set FPS to 30, turn on v-sync, and sometimes have to turn off HDR. All that used to work, but now I'm finding that I have to do all of that AND reset my machine for it to start working. It's a bug that's been around for a LONG time and is in dire need of a fix.

Even modified, it doesn't change the classification of the car. The event requires "Extreme Offroad", the Land Rover is just "Offroad". Stock, or heavily tuned, it's still just "Offroad" and thus ineligible for the default event.

For the Trial, you might think you need a car with snow tyres, but it's actually fine with race tyres, at least it was with the extreme handling Elise GT1 I tried it with. The Elise GT1 with race tyres is an excellent choice for the Ambleside Village Circuit race (it holds the top spots on the rivals leaderboard), and can still beat all the drivatars in the other two races.

You need to make a blueprint and just change the vehicle division to Offroad. I didn't alter the set course. I tried with a stock Defender but the other vehicles were faster off the start so I quit the event and upgraded my vehicle to A800. Won it fairly easily.

Because I alternate between 2 consoles, my frame rate is always 30 fps and I had no problem with the mileage. Drove on the motorway South, North and South and the achievement popped up straight away. Average speed between 130 mph and 140 mph.

Nothing else didn't work for me so i just slapped all upgrade parts and drove over 200 mph and it started to count miles, PG should really fix this stupid bug.

I can confirm that at least on XBox One the Land Rover 15 miles challenge works if you upgrade the car for speed. I just throw on all the power available and drove up and down the motorway a few times. That did the trick. Keeping it in D-class (which I did for the other chanllenges) does not work. I wonder why they keep using this distance challenge. They must be aware that it is bugged.

As far as the Whitewater Falls Cross Country challenge goes, I just made a blueprint for Land Rovers only in Summer. That made it a lot easier.

If anyone knows how to get anywhere near the one or two Can-Ams that just disappear into the horizon for the Buggy challenge I'd be most appreciative.

Tried all my buggies (so all of them). Tried my own tunes and downloaded ones. The Can-Am's just flip off into the distance no matter how well I do and usually win by a couple of checkpoints. Stupid. (it's been this way in all Buggy championships, no other one suffers and I've won everything else easily).

Yes, that's really hard to catch those Can-Ams, i still managed to win 2 races with #1107 Desert Dingo (tune shared).

Had no chance to catch it in second race, took too long for me to pass other drivatars but second place was enough for overall win.

PSA: if you struggle with the "Reaching Your Peaks" Championship with Winter buggies, because even at Highly Skilled and with a fully upgraded car, the Drivatars are outpacing you, try the Can-Am Maverick.

I just redid the Championship on Unbeatable and in a bone stock Can-Am Maverick, and surprise surprise, I was able to beat them, and by beat them I mean I had a comfortable lead of over 6 seconds in a car with only 1 gear.

that 1 gear buggy wins the race easily.

As for Whitewater Falls CC event with the Defender Series III you have to use a blueprint. I think that must be a mistake!

Thanks. I'll check the tune out. I'm on PC so limiting FPS is too much for me to cope with. I might though.

I have a shared Blueprint for the Land Rover event if anyone wants to save time.

On the Quarry 60's championship I missed a checkpoint by a mile, and the game didn't notice. keep an eye out it might be a bug. I played a replay of the race, and missed it by a lot. I don't use rewinds so missing a checkpoint is usually race over.
