You've got the conditions for the Trial on the Showcase Remix.

There must be some other requirement on "Flight of the Valkyries", I can't take my S2 Lego Mini in.

Nice and easy trial with Corvette '60, tune shared 914 311 191
Used Aston Vanquish '17 with DJS tune for S1, Koenigsegg CCG as offroad S2, tune 164 224 893, VW Golf R32 '03 tune 294 848 674.
Speed zone done with Lego Senna, speed trap and jump done with offroad Agera RS

Also very glad there are no cops in the game, as I'm doing this while drinking and driving, but I just can't say no to a good red wine after nice dinner :)
Now I think I need a bit of a rest, my head is spinning ...

The Mini isn't a Danish or Swedish car, because they used UK as the country of origin, which is technically correct, despite LEGO being Danish.
Rules of troubleshooting:
1) Have you tried turning it off and on again?
2) Is your Internet working?

I like the BMW M Coupe! I had a bug with it, because I used a tune in Favourites which was S2, yet the tune didn't go on the car. I tried again, and it looked like it went on the car, but the car was still A class. So in the end I used a different tune not found in Favourites.

I think that Favourites is broken!

It's listed as Denmark, and the Senna, Chiron, and F40 all qualify, so no, it's not correct.

I'm thinking they whitelisted specific cars, those that start at S2, instead of using the country as the actual requirement.

Buy a Volvo V70 Polestar, fit it up with the 6.2 V8, Twin Turbos, Rally Suspension and the "Racing" Version of every Available Upgrade.

Flight of the Valkyries becomes a lot Easier with that Set up.

The 1M is a monster! That was my most successful car for a very long time. Lots of wins in A class online adventure with that thing! Its underrated for sure.

Hello, first time posting here, having an issue that is really detracting from my enjoyment of this amazing game right now.

I am currently not able to use all of the cars that I should be able to when running a seasonal event. Even cars that I own aren't showing up when I checked and they definitely meet the requirements for the given series. It also won't even let me buy that car from the buy car section when I'm setting up the series.

Right now, the seasonal event with Volkswagen, I should have 8 eligible cars and I only have 3 available when I start the event, and don't have the option to purchase any others. These aren't dlc cars, I'm talking regular cars.

This started about 2 days ago in the middle of a play session. Restarted the game, my Xbox one s console, and uninstalled and reinstalled the game and nothing has helped. It did this during the last season, winter, and th current spring season.

I've been playing since launch and this is the first time this has happened. Any help is much appreciated! Thank you!

I think at some point, PG needs to add these cars to the Autoshow, especially earlier Series reward cars. No reason to keep a lock on. Trueno is a good example.

lol, you inferring something there Jezza............

Actually before the OP Tracktor came into the game i used the Elan on pretty much all B class events. It couldn't be beaten most of the time.

The acceleration on it is insane.

Yeah, it’s totally dominant against the other cars in this category. I haven’t checked but I think we are probably still top 6 in the Rivals event we did in it! I won all three events In the trial by a long distance despite missing the start by a good 5 seconds as i was getting some food in the 2nd event!

Tbh, trials in general, especially non-S2 ones, aren't that hard if you upgrade your car. It's Playground Games that's the most annoying event in the Playlists.

How are you all building and tuning the Elan for the Trial? I tried the Porsche 914/6 first, with a drag tyres build, and did okay, but was lacking in speed for the first 2 races, even though I could easily win the 3rd. I tried the Elan, but went for a fairly extreme stock tyres build, giving it crazy acceleration and speed, but I had to brake really early and slow down a lot for every corner. I won the first 2 races, and it was still decent for race 3 but the problem is so many people who do the Trial use the technique of sliding at 90 degrees into the wall on every corner, so if you have to brake early and slow down a lot, they just smack into you, and you never get the chance to do the lap times you can do on a clear track. I also tried that Elan build for the Meadows Sprint rivals, driving against Abell's Daytona ghost, and I didn't seem to have any acceleration or speed advantage, but he pulled away with better handling on the corners.

I've usually got so much distance from the others at the start that them slamming into me is a non issue.

I think Angel did a tune that was good or it might have been Forbidden Beef.

Will give the Meadows Sprint a run and see how i fare with my tune. I haven't shared as i keep tweeking it all the time but when i get it right i will.

Looking at the Meadows times, I clearly need a good Plymouth Cuda tune. Just used the Elan to go into 9th - 1 second ahead of Abell. Could probably hunt down the two above me fairly easily which would leave only 5 Cudas and Barcode in his 166MM ahead of me (the top 5 would be out of reach).

I’m using Rayne’s tune Bree.

Edit - found another second or so with a few more runs to move up to 7th.

Is there a particular reason that the Koenigsegg CCX is ineligible for the Flight of the Valkyries event? Other Koenigseggs are viable and the car comes in under the class limit, even well equipped. Also, of the Volvos in the game, only the V60 Polestar seems to be available. Can I take it that there are issues?

Sincerely,

I'm having a similar issue. I went to tune my Lego 911 (had to bring it down from X Class to S2), and it wouldn't accept it. The only Lego cars it showed as acceptable on my screen were also the Senna, Chiron, and F40. Kind of odd.

Also speaking of odd, I had a horribly failed attempt using the Volvo 850 R (don't ask, I was trying it for the laughs), and noticed an odd thing with the driver lineup:
I scoff, but I was getting beat by some of them.

How did half the Drivatars get S1 cars into the race? Especially those Iron Knights which were barely in S1? This happened in a race last week as well, but I didn't get a chance to screencap it.

I believe it has something to do with having your PI set at or very near the minimum in S2 or whatever class. Seen this quite often, it's like the game has a range the AI sets itself on depending what your PI is.

I'll be honest, the Playground Games event was kicking my butt. A guy on one of the opponent teams was kind enough to give me some tips and advice. He recommended the Mini Countryman.

After using it, I have to recommend it too as counterintuitive as it may seem. It's small, quick, and nimble making you a pain for people to tag. It's amazing at handling the bumps and jumps that kept tossing me around when I used other cars. Also, the water won't slow you down as much as you think.

The same guy helped me get my win but I decided to do another round just to see how good the Countryman is and boy did I do much better in the games than I did with other cars I tried.

Used the Lotus Elan for the Trial and the Volvo V60 for the Valkyrie championship. Both cars made their respective events super easy.
