Lower Fell Speed Trap is tricky so far... from either direction. Always traffic in the wrong place. edit - did it.

Whew! Yeah that speed trap took a few rewinds because of traffic. The Trial was easy though!

I got Supervan 3 immediately. But I'm a little confused.
Race tire with higher grip than stock tire. However, "Horizon" race tires have exactly the same grip as stock tires.
Is this the design they intended? Or a bug?

… Well, this car has vintage race tires. Goodyear's letter is cooler than "Horizon". And better grip than race tires.

A quick timesaver tip for you all:
Start with the weekly forzathon, get the 5 wrecking ball skills and after that it says you need to win three cross country races with your Warthog. You can use it for the Piste of Cake seasonal event. It will be a piece of cake with it. Do the race at the quarry last. So after you finish it, just get the three stars at the quarry speed trap and you finished your weekly forzathon and a seasonal event in one.

Got the AMR and Supervan two minutes or three before a power outage occurred. The danger sign was much trickier than the speed trap.

I haven’t needed to complete the Trial for quite a while but managed this one first time thanks to my ‘teammates’ 👍🏾

We lost the 1st race dismally (usual scenario as described by FN above) and my ‘team’ all quit before the end of the 2nd race....


Race 3 result…


Blue Team wins - me, myself & I 😉

If you need help with the wrecking ball skills for the warthog (m12s) weekly challenge then I made a blueprint which if you follow the checkpoints you should get a wrecking ball skill at the end of the race.

The share code is 302 049 437

I also did a quick win race as well the code for that one is 131 099 458.

I have a good playground games tune as well for the lotus 2 eleven. The code is 153 702 785.

I hope these help

The Aston Martin has a similar issue with the tyres being bugged, in that both the stock and race tyres have exactly the same stats. I assume though that in this case the race tyres are actually mean to be the 'Horizon' race tyres.

Also does anyone have any tips for the speed trap this week? What cars are good to use? I've tried my usual ones but they either go wide in the snow on the run up or are unable to gain enough speed if I brake hard enough to make the corners before the speed trap. Obviously there's a knack to it, just can't seem to find it.

Update: Thanks all for the tips, but in the end I managed to brute force it with the TVR Cerbera. Not the best way but it worked.

I used the Chiron with I believe Don Joewon Song’s tune, multiple rewinds required though!

Trial went ... well for me with 3 wins, not so much for the rest of the team :/

3 quit mid first race (lost), 1 quit just before the end of second race and I thank the person for doing that (win), last race you see the pic
Team was all the time keeping the back door safe, except on last race :)
Trial car as seen on pic - Hoonigan Escort with DJS tune, used my trusty El Camino with my tune to get new supervan, some random Lotus with totally wrong tune (all handling, no speed lol) and max tuned Warthog for cross country (if needed, I also made custom race just south of festival, for Forzathon)
Used offroad Agera RS for speed trap and jump - both done on 3rd try and Hoonigan RS200 for offroad speed trap
Alfa Romeo - made in Italy, perfected in my garage

Trial in the Hoonigan Escort (not ideal but did the job). Speed trap in the Mosler, speed zone in the Hoonigan RS200 and danger sign in the Ultima. Took about 30 minutes to get the AM. Still need to get the Supervan.

You're right, I did tune (545 011 302) Hoonigan RS200 and its much quicker then Hoonigan Escort and has more grip, even tho stats don't show it.

Path to Vulcan:

1) Do a lap of Monthly Rivals
2) Get a Warthog and complete the first two Forzathon challenges (Wrecking Ball = 3 Wreckage in rapid sucession).
3) Build your Warthog to S1801 and complete the S1900 Cross Country tournament in it (will complete 3rd Forzathon challenge as well)
4) Max your Warthog out (use 7.2L Racing V8 swap) and complete the final Forzathon challenge
5) Win "It's a Bird? A Plane?" with an AWD-converted, snow tires A800 Vans and Utility (Holden/Ford Ute and Chevy El Camino will do fine)
6) Win "Magnum Lotus" in any Lotus (Exige S is most balanced IMO)
7) Do the Mudkickers' Danger Sign in a Hoonigan RS200
8) Do the Speed Zone in a Hoonigan RS200

Don't bother with the Speed Trap. Waste of time. You need an X999 hypercar/track toy with extreme power, AWD conversion and snow tires, maybe also rally suspension. I used the CCGT. To add to the frustration, when approaching from east, traffic usually spawns on the left hander's apex right before the speed trap, and the radar itself is positioned slightly downhill, so you'll lose speed before hitting it. Yet another wasteful challenge to help Playground milk those precious playtime from the people who still bother going for the rare cars in this stupid game.

My comments on the cars...

AM Vulcan AMR: A grippier, slower version of the original. Barely breaks 320 kph at S2998. Understeers due to front engine. There are better cars in the game.
Ford Supervan: Useless in S1900. With powerful engine swaps, it accelerates extremely fast, could be good in S2998. Comes with Goodyear racing tires seen in the Monte Carlo.

Meta player should skip the Vulcan. Person who plays the game as intended (for fun, not stupid minmaxing) might appreciate the Aston since it's grippy and looks much better than the original.
