Very surprised i'll have to do the trial more than once. We lost 2-1 even though we only had 3 drivers. I finish first in each of the races, the very last race my 2 teammates finish dead last. Why me??

Time to get the Porsche Macan out for the trial.

I've got 4 out of 4 in the trial, but my GOLD trial is about to run out, so at least I tried all the games out. I used the Lamborghini URUS in the trial, very easy to win, all of my teammates were on level 1, and I'm on level 5.

Check it updated. FH4 is the only game I have (on PC) that will start even when there is an update waiting to be downloaded and installed.

On a side note, what are people using for the trial? Tried it once with the Grand Cherokee but it doesn't have the acceleration to catch up with the AI, and my team were all using stock rentals, so predictably we lost.

Macan '19 all the way, super easy for fast turn, great landing after jump and high enough to go through water without losing control!

Yeah, I had someone shove me out of way of a checkpoint. Like it's Co-op guys. We're supposed to be working together. Take out the AI, not each other.

It was fun to watch the Rossion's price fall from 16 million down to 4 for a buyout. I managed to get one for 2.5 million last night. I like it 'cause nerfs the prices of the super rare cars for a bit.

It's supposed to be summer and all we get is a truck load of cross country. Even in online adventure there is a huge bias towards cross country and don't forget the eliminator which is a love child of cross country and freeroam rush.

Just wanted to say, nice update. My game loads now in less than 10 seconds and before I had to wait around a minute.

Speaking of the trial. I finally got it with the Urus. Tried 5 - 6 times with the BMW X5 M but it never worked.

I used the old Macan. With the tune I used the acceleration (and launch) are great.

Had to do the Trial twice though.
Second time we luckily had 2 people quit before the end of the first race, giving us that win.
The second race was quite easy (For the first time ever I finished 1st!)
Third race was a mess, with me and another player missing checkpoints :/
2-1 overall though!
Needed that Maserati.

The motocross race was easier than normal. I usually have to do it at least a couple of times because Blue edges me out at the end. But this time I had no trouble at all keeping up with the bikes. In fact, the only time I had to rewind was when I got too close to the bikes, and they ran into me and shoved me off the track. Blue did it to me twice near the end, and I had to actually slow down to beat him. If they weren't on rails, I think I could have even gotten ahead of them.

Thanks all, ended up doing it in the F-Pace, though the win was more down to a decent team then anything else. While it does seem that the Macan and Urus are dominant I always like to try something I haven't driven much before if I can.

Have tried to complete the Trial for 7 times at this moment without any succes by using the Uris’19 or Macan’15

Either the team-mates smashes into each other, maling them to Lose checkpoints or else 2 or 3 team-mates arequiting in the middle of the first event.

Will try to complete with either Maserati or Jaguar and hope for a decent team.

If any suggestions - perhaps a Tune Setup -, please let me know 0:)

For me the Macan '15 with a tune called "Trial" I think (second from the left when I was looking for tunes) did very well. I was best of my team 4/6 races and in all but one race I finished 3rd or higher (I missed a checkpoint twice(!!) in the last race).

The first race is actually quite telling I think. It is the make it or break it one. On my second attempt two people quit to give us the win.
The second race is pretty much an automatic win I found, with almost everyone finishing high.
The third race to me looked like an automatic loss unless you have a very good team. So easy to miss checkpoint or hit things with cars sliding in the rain.

So, if you win the first you should be fine.

Based on my limited experience though... YMMV.

The car was great though.
