Has anyone worked out what cars can be used for the Trial? Clearly it's C600, but it says micro mayhem and fun-sized, and neither is an in-game car type. Show eligible cars doesn't work, as it only shows a single eligible car for me, despite me owning every non-DLC car in the game.

Thanks breeminator for asking. Had me confused as well!

Did they change the Weekly Challenge car? I have been trying to check ahead of time so I don't get stuck. A few weeks ago when they had the $10mil vintage racer, it was tough for me to even get into the event.

So by checking ahead, it looked like this week was a Bugatti Veryon and next week was a Mustang GT500.

Yesterday, when I checked it now said Rally Monsters for this week and a Mini X Raid. So was I doing it wrong or does the whole thing reset because of the end of the Season?

Thanks for the list, but why when I click "view eligible cars" it shows only Ferrari?

And I am pretty sad at this moment, becuase I got disconnected 5 times from trial/PGG on 8 attempts.

Also I would like to say that if anyone is looking for car for PGG - look for my tune for 2013 Clio. It is called "beach party". Should be even good for automatic gearbox. Only be careful on steering and try not to steer left-right-left, because it is tail happy ;)

Looks good to me, I missed the Pista, Hummer, Clio and Spec 5 as I wasn't playing the game then. I don't think any car is worth 5 million in the AH, let alone the 10-20 million they get put up for daily.

Fingers crossed for the rest of the season!

So first the trial. I went in with Lotus Elan with street tires upgrade ... got 3x 2nd place to Ferrari 166, so ...
C 600 Lotus Elan handling tune - 415 993 059
and alternative, as Elan on stock tires handles like driving on ice to me ... Ferrari on stock tires handles almost like Elan on upgraded tires and its faster, so here is the tune for C 600 Ferrari 166MM - 103 399 439
Heavy hitters A 800, pervious trial car Jeep Wrangler DD, tune - 824 909 208, alternative Top Gear Tcarck-Tor, tune - 443 184 069
Japan B 700, , Subaru Impreza 22B, tune - 221 272 558 (M+C transmission recommended, but can easily win even on auto), or maybe Honda CRX Mugen, tune - 460 682 659
Classic rally D 500, Mini Cooper S, tune - 121 061 400

As usual now, danger sign done with offroad tuned Agera RS and speed zone and speed trap done with S2 Hoonigan RS200.

Edit
Forzathon car ... well any rally monster can do it, easiest speed zone is still Forest Green and if anyone needs an easy dirt track - Derwen **** er trail (just drive straight), share code - 764 612 023

I've shared a tune of the Porsche 550 for the Trial. I doubt it's the fastest car, but I put it in 16th on the Bamburgh Coast Circuit rivals leaderboard. I did the Trial 4 or 5 times, I think, trying some different builds and tune settings, and won by a mile, even when other humans brought C600 cars. The Mini 65 also looks like a very good option, based on the rivals leaderboard.

Usually when it goes between Series (between Spring and Summer), it's not the right info downloaded yet. I do the same thing and saw that it claimed to be the Veyron. But I also remembered seeing in the series announcement video that it was something different.

The Mercedes W154 is a 10 million CR autoshow car that I happen to know I don't already have. Even though I could just go and buy it anytime I want, I now have the incentive to 80% the playlist. So it's going to be a busy month, I think.

I bet the main reason why this week's Trial was such a breeze is that the cars aren't fast enough for randoms to crash and ram each other off.

I think they mistakenly sell the 1973 A110.
Perhaps they intended to sell the 2017 A110, but accidentally sold the 1973 A110.
This car is a Dirt Racing reward and is probably not the car they had planned to make available from the Forzathon Shop.

My first race in The Trial was with a stock 1948 Ferrari 166MM Barchetta. It was the only eligible car presented to me from my garage. So I went to the races and saw a few other eligible cars. Even one fellow with 1962 Peel P50(??).

The stock Barchetta performed very well and my team won all three events; thanks to three 1965 MINI Cooper that stormed through the crowd to the front.

So I manually tuned my Barchetta and added a little paint & markings. Back to the race and was well pleased that this car would zoom to front of race too.

Having raced the Trial several times against all type of teammate's cars, I'd say this can be a winning car for anyone to use.

Hello,

Cars/tunes/suggestions for this weeks seasonal online and PR syunts for those that find such useful. All tunes are my own, 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: "Fun-Sized" | Road Racing | (C600) Micro-Mayhem
**Car used: 1971 Lotus Elan Sprint (Autoshow 57,000 Cr)
**Tune: C600 Street AWD / 180 421 988

Dust off the Elan for another trial (not the same of course!). A.I. behavior this week: Solo, testing/practice, A.I. used variety of cars, vs Elan A.I. was competitive, no strange things beyond in the sprint towards the end they get a noticeable boost, this behavior is somewhat common, I can not say in this case if it is due to the player lead and if they would catch you if you did not have a sufficient lead. In the trial A.I. is performing at a lower level vs solo Unbeatable, only saw the A.I. use the Ferrari.
Tune can/will beat unbeatable A.I. both on and offline, car/tune was able to beat cars I faced by players, including tuned cars - the stock Ferrari is not a match at all (based on those I encountered) , tune is plenty fast for the trial, I did note that the Porsche could be faster depending on driver and tune. Tune is optimized towards grip, high/er speed cornering, AWD, street tires, rear Forza air (tuned down).

**Seasonal Playground Games | Bamburgh Castle | (B700) Hot Hatch
**Car used: 2009 Vauxhall Corsa VXR (HTF)
**Tune: B700 Games Sand / 122 058 572

Great car in the sand, good balance, has grip, quick acceleration. I am aware this is a hard to find car, don't know when it was last gifted, however I really like this one at this location in this class. Tune, FWD, rally tires, rear Forza air (P.I. cheat).

PR stunts:
- Croft Speed Zone, 1978 Hoonigan Ford Escort RS1800 - 'S900 Rally Trial' (680 307 281) - start on the 'up-hill' end, there is a small rise behind the start point in the forest, trees on the run in are not an issue, start at the top of the rise straight into the start, my start was around 200kph, if you can hold the corners, and clear the last jump pointing towards the finish this is a relatively easy zone,
- Wesloch Speed Trap, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544) ~ simple was in the air through the trap,
- The Great Ridge Danger Sign, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544) ~ rewind, repeat, you will be in the air passing the flags, it is only a matter of hitting the right line (moderately difficult, but possible with practice) and not hitting a tree on landing, spinning in the air will still give you the distance as long as it lands okay.

Enjoy.

Excellent experience in the Trial. Found a good team first time out, everyone raced clean, and we won easily. I got bumped around once by a teammate late into the 3rd race. I passed him cleanly, and I guess he decided he wanted the position back, even though we were both ahead of the AI. Knocked me into a wall, and hit my bumper a few times before passing. I reminded him that I was on the blue team, and he fired off an 'oops' in quick chat, so maybe it was accidental. But it was the 3rd race, and we were already up 2, and we didn't loose any points over it. So no big deal.
