So far on the weekly challenge speed trap, the best I can do is 225mph in a Ferrari 812 Superfast maxed out.

What is everyone else using?


ETA

NM. I got it first try after lowering the aero on the car. Doh!

I remember this from the last time we had the super GT challenge...

Ferrari 812 (if you have it) or F12 Berlinetta

Mod the heck out of it. You have to hit the trap coming from the west, from the roundabout.

You have to exit the curve at 205mph or you won’t make it.

It’s a real pain in the butt.

Nice trial again, won all 3 events, team did well 2:1. Car needs some grip, but top end is also important.
Trial car A 800 Lotus Elan, tune - 106 663 648
Italian S1 900 - Lambo Hurican, tune - 488 011 727
Hot hatch B700 - Abarth 695, tune - 181 566 953
Vintage racer B 700 - Bentley 4 1/2 liter, tune - 343 157 769

Danger sign and speed zone as always done in offroad tuned Agera RS, speed zone done in trusty S2 tuned Hoonigan RS200

Weekly Forzathon car - Aston Martin DB11 PO tuned to S2 998, easily reaches desired speed, tune - 936 819 910
Used Astmoore Heritage circuit set to new racer, to get pass skills and then went drifting to the Festival.
Could use Ferrari 812 X tuned to get the speed, but I wanted a challenge and do it in S2. Ferrari was just shy of the speed, but Aston did it with ease (384 kph) :)

Though I won't be bothering with it it's good to see the Goliath being used in the trial, will make it's name actually have some meaning this odd time rather than the usual title of the trial AKA 3 short races you've already done countless times or for others the trial AKA search and quit until you get the opportunity to leech an easy reward car.

Oh, for the 10 pass skills...

Here’s an easy way:

Go to a drag strip. Wait a split second before you hit the gas, then after you pass most of the cars you’ll get a bunch of pass skills.

Hit pause.

Select “restart race”

Repeat as needed.

You’ll have 10 pass skills within a couple of minutes.

that speed zone was ridiculous. i ended up getting it with an x class ariel atom but i had to come at the start from a ridiculous angle and speed and do some rewinds all the way through. im sure theres an easier way but it took me a good 15 minutes of screwing around and trying to find a car that would work. theres gotta be a better way. that was one of the most brutal things ive had to do. last seasons danger zone was pretty lame too but at least i wasnt pulling my hair out over it

took an elan for the trial. won the first two with ease. then just played around for the goliath. i really dont know why they dont just end the trial if we win the first two. the third race is completely unnecessary and meaningless at that point.

and as usual in the playground games i got put up against a team of rage babies who quit if they dont win the first one. so it only took 5 minutes to get that nonsense over and done with

everything else was straightforward. ive got everything done and 98% the whole series. just need to make sure to log in every day to do the daily forzathon thing, and then ill get my last achievement and be 3250/3250. i missed it last month because i forgot to log in on a wednesday and do the last one of the first season, so i had to wait a few weeks for the new series and start over again lol pretty sure i'll get it this time though. then the only thing left for me is a bunch of blueprints or something for the last star card badge and then i'll have all of them. but i dont think i'm going to bother with that part. i'm pretty much finished with the game and done everything i want to do. after auctioning off as many duplicates as i could find ive amassed 600 and something cars now too which is the most ive got in any forza game. i think im pretty close to having them all. except maybe a few that i can only get from past seasons or the auction house if im fast enough to get one before a bot does. now im just play just to screw around and then catch up to where i left off on forza 7.

Or before the end of the first drag race? ;)

This was the first thing I did when the season changed over this afternoon.

Just rewound a little after passing the first bunch and completed the 10 by the time I reached the kink with the farmhouse (the one everyone takes too fast and leaves the road).

Why is that an issue?

I'll quit every time if my team hasn't won the first round! I see no point in flogging a dead horse? If you have been trounced in the first round, it normally stands to reason what's coming next! Life is tooooo short!

I wonder if the AI uses rivals times for reference pace? There's a cheat Lotus 340R at the top of the Cotswolds Super Sprint leaderboard.

I've shared a tune of the Lotus Eleven called "Lotus Trial" if anyone wants to try that. I've done the fastest legit Lotus time on the Cotswolds Super Sprint (Trial race 2) leaderboard with it, in 100th place. RWD builds of other cars dominate the top of the leaderboard, due to the long straight, but that Eleven tune is AWD and very easy to drive.

X Class Aston Martin DB11 PO killed it this Forzathon Weekly.

It's a decent drifter. I didn't do the Drift Zone part on the Mainland but it 3 stars the LEGO Valley Drift Zones pretty easily.

For the Speed Trap, start at the end of the City Suburbs Drift Zone. Got 233 mph on my second try.

It's unfortunate that all the good cars for this challenge are rare. I remember the very first time this came out and I had neither a DB11 PO nor an 812 Superfast. I think I got it with the Aston Martin V12 Vantage but man was it a major pain.

Not sure but i just was in a Trial and a player somehow came in with an X class car.

The lead AI took off and by the 1/3 mark was so far in front that it would be impossible to catch.

There was no way the lead AI had that much power for an A class car.

It was like it based it's power on the X class car.

I was in 2nd and the car i used (the Lotus Elan) has won comfortably every race bar 1 so far in Trials i have competed in.

Very, very suspect.

A friend of mine has found himself in the Trial in an X class car sometimes, without him having done anything to intentionally cause it to happen. It sometimes puts you into it in the car you're already in, but I don't know what causes it to happen.

Hi all,

Cars/tunes/suggestions for this weeks online seasonal events plus PR stunts for those that find such useful. All tunes are my own, all shared. ~ tune name / share code. If you use anything offered here, and you like it/it was useful to you, please don't forget to leave a like.

Online:
**Trial: "Team Lotus" | Road Racing | (A800) Lotus cars
**Car used: 1971 Lotus Elan Sprint (Autoshow 57,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 Road / 299 110 936

A.I. behavior this week - solo, testing/trying for trial, blueprinted tracks (same conditions), unbeatable, the A.I. seem slower than online, but for Goliath where they seem the same apart from two things, in solo, no matter how fast they were when passed, as soon as passed they never left rear view distance the other issue is to do with in the trial. Online in trial, Goliath very quick, and pull away when you catch them, only braking/slowing on 'red' corners, never on yellow (colours are my POV, assume much the same for others)
On to the tune, it is not the fastest, however it can out corner everything else (except when the A.I. misbehave ~ see above), great grip even in the rain. Will beat unbeatable A.I., may not beat teammates in tuned cars. One issue in the trial for this car to watch out for is it is very light, as such the A.I. force-field thingie will push you clean off the track if/when it happens before you can react to it (my experience, I assume it is related to weight as teammates bumping me was also a problem even in light taps). Tune is AWD, with Forza air.

**Seasonal Playground Games | Mudkickers' | (B700) Retro Rally
**Car used: 1980 Renault 5 Turbo (Autoshow 120,000 Cr)
**Tune: B700 Rally Trial / 933 218 659

Renault 5 from recent trial, works great at mudkickers, has grip (unlike almost anything else I saw my follow gamers bringing), stable, no flipping over on big jumps (getting air on less than ideal angles and unmovable objects are another thing entirely). AWD, Forza rear air, mud-flaps.


PR Stunts:
-Nether End Speed Zone, 1978 Hoonigan Ford Escort RS1800 - 'S900 Rally Trial' (680 307 281) - this took some effort as if you come in with too much lead in speed (uphlll end of zone), you'll go over the first hill and land with no slowing distance for the corner,
-Slate Quarry Speed Trap, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544),
-Northbound Danger Sign, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544) - provided you can keep it on the ground for most of the run in to the jump this is easy, still I was only ever able to hit the jump at around 250kph at most.

Cheers.

The Trial this week was a blast for me. Decided to use my near top of the class Exige. First race our team lost, I came in 2nd. Second race we won, 3 people quit during the race. Third race, The Goliath, I got out front to 3rd while 2 team mates quit, leaving the other lone player in last place as they were the other two races. I was praying he would quit as well so I could maybe have a chance at winning it by myself(a personal goal). Once we got to the Gardens they quit, giving me the points needed to win by remaining in 3rd. I spent the rest of the race chasing 2nd and 1st place, eventually passing both and winning 650-0! Favorited the Lotus Eleven and maxes out the skill tree as I had definitely earned that one! [img=https://share.icloud.com/photos/03lCj0-6XxDOMYSn1CCIrNyjQ]Goliath Win[/img]

Here's your opportunity to break the game, for only 600FP. Yes, the car is that good.

Goliath A800 is nowhere near the monster it is at S2998. Take advantage of that.

I remember this. In fact, I still have the tune I downloaded on the Berlinetta. It's not easy. Last time, I kept making pass after pass for a whole week, and finally got it on the last day.

Last night, I made a dozen or so passes before setting it aside and going to do the other stuff. The most stable runs were 217-220. Getting there, but not quite yet.

I remember this from the earlier challenge. At that time I didn't have the Ferrari 812 Superfast and I gave up.

I've tried the latest challenge several times but my fastest time is 226 mph against the target of 230 mph. This is with a Ferrari 812 tuned/upgraded to X999 plus no aero. Have read some of the advice in this thread and watched a YouTube video so I tried the Aston Martin DB11 PO with an X999 tune/upgrade by waznewz. Achieved the target first time approaching the speed trap from the East (which is easier). Very easy and I could've gone faster. I should've tried the Aston Martin earlier.
