Just a quick tip.
If anyone is having problems with '80s' and 'Derby' championships. I used Lancia Delta S4 for both and it was a real breeze with this car.

Big AH weekend for me too, the only new additions to my garage will be the new Aston and that '99 Lotus. I'm still holding on to my spare Levante too ... hoping to see a price increase now that it's off the table.

Pretty sure I've already got everything except the new Vanquish, so I expect to be back to playing Assassin's Creed by late evening.

I already have the Lotus Elise, but never used it yet apparently. I did use it in FM 7 a few weeks back for anther event, probably a Forzathon, and I rather liked it. It's been on my to-do list for a while to import the tune and take it for a spin.

Newbies should seriously consider getting the Hoonigan RS200 from the #Forzathon Shop if they don't have one.

The '83 Audi Sport Quattro is also very good.

I wonder how much the Lotus price will be cause I already have one. It is very nice that some of the wheelspin only cars can be sold at a high price. I keep landing on those 04 Civic Type Rs. I sell those for 5 million or more and of course whenever I land on the cop car or the taxi, those go for a high price

Another mistake this week. In the Porsche description it says it was going to be a B class dirt car, yet if you try to get a B class tune you can't get one. I thought that it was a clue, but it was actually a mistake.

B class in real life means something different than B class in Forza PI.

That 959 is a really bad car to drive. Tried a few different tunes along with some of my own in A Class. What a pig! The thing wants to oversteer so bad. If by chance you to get it to rotate the rear end will just want to keep going around. I would recommend street scene events that favor long flowing corners and not a lot of tight twisty stuff.

I sold mine for 20,000,000 a few days ago when the prices were not great.

The AH seems odd ATM. I sold the following today:
Shelby Cobra 427 S/C @ 20m
Chevrolet ZR2 @ 20m
Pontiac GTO @ 20m
Hoonicorn V2 @ 20m
Mustang RTR S5 @ 20m
Hoonigan 10 Focus @ 20m (x3)
Hoonigan 10 Fiesta @ 20m
HW Bone Shaker 20m
TVR Tuscan @ 20m
Austin Taxi @ 20m
Cadillac Limo @ 20mm (x2)
This is despite some of the cars above going for really low prices.

Knocking on the door of 999,999,999.

3 more cars and I'm there, but ran out of auctions for today! :(

Tips & Miscellany

The Trial Co-Op Championship: "Aston Martin Cup"

Did this with '17 Aston Martin DB 11 upgraded to max allowed. Got this at first effort. First trail turned out to be total ramming fest mess via human players part and after recovering from that I still managed to mess up one curve in latter part or route. However all but one other player quit and other two circuit races were really easy, won both circuits. Tune shared.

Completed these on Pro difficulty, no driving assists.

Championship: "Racing Through the Years - 80s”

Did this twice. First with Lambo Countach stock and second time with Porsche 959 stock. While Lambo was terrible in first Cross Country event, it was really enjoyable and easy in Road and Dirt(!) event, much more so than with 959 which is tad better in Cross Country and can win both other races, is far more tricky to drive.

It's however worth to note that there's Dirt Trail challenge related to Porsche 959 Weekly Challenge. If 959 is used in this champ then it's only two more Dirt trail races remaining.


Championship: "Lambing Season"

Tried this with Lambo Urus Concept stock which was really good at first event but I didn't managed to win the second CC event where I became second. Last one was actually Road Racing trail where it couldn't match upgraded Drivatar LM's on straights and '19 Urus in general. Changed to '19 Lambo Urus stock and won with ease. Recommend '19 Lamborghini Urus for this champ.


Championship: "The Dirty Derby"

This was great championship! Did this with stock Subaru 22B. Really fun races. I think route selection was really good for this one. For Trail race, watch out for boulders. Recommended Subaru 22B

Playground Games
Was bit difficult to find a match. First there wasn't enough players, then our team lost their sprit after first round loss and that's about it. Tried again, got disconnected before game began. Then really good team. Though I wonder if these events has lately become more uneven for some reason?

PR Stunts
Bugatti Veyron SS, except for Fortune Island Trailblazer which I did with Hoonigan RS200.

Showcase Remix
Liked previous remix more, night in Lambo. This was okay I guess.


Weekly Challenge:

Completed this with stock 959 and I recommend following routes:

Win 4 Dirt Trail Events:
Moorhead Rally Trail (very easy)
Glen Rannoch Trail (easy)
Holyrood Trail (easy, in 80's championship).

Win 2 Street Scene events
Edinburgh West End (very easy)
Broadway Crossfire (Moderate)

It's really weird car. It was fun fast cruiser in FH3 and I recall using it to many PR stunts in Blizzard Mountain expansion, but for a reason or another it's quite frustrating in FH4. It has terrible lateral grip, to the point I wonder if there's something wrong with it's braking line (like it has perks that actually belong Prodrive 959 and vice versa). It's AWD yet you need to corner it like older 911, brake before turn, feather in turn, flat out. It has top speed, but terrible turbo lag and engine which doesn't know if it's rev machine of turbo machine. It's similar in FM7 where some players felt car became more manageable after converting it to RWD, didn't try that myself though.

And unlike the Jag XJ220, the 959 actually _was_ designed for Group B rally (hence its success at Dakar) but Group B was cancelled before development was finished.

Appreciate it might not be available to everyone when you do the trial but Rayne’s tune of the AM Vanquish Zagato is fairly dominant.

Also, as usual the drivatars are far better at the first street event than they are at the two road events that follow. Don’t quit after the first one as both times I’ve done the trial my team has lost race 1 but won the next two.

Should I feel bad for selling a Hoonigan RS200 for 12 million yesterday?

What timing!
May the forced induction be with you.
