Possibly the most bizarre trial I've ever had, booted out of the 1st race and had to wait, drove like someone who was drunk in the 2nd then won by miles in the 3rd.

AI was all over the place and easy to beat, I used the Monaro tuned to A800 and it was very good in both races I got to be in, just a shame about the person driving it in 1 of them.

The issue with the Series 23 release has been resolved and we are moving through our test process for that build. Tomorrow, Autumn will continue to use backup content.

We are hoping to release the build next week. After the season change over on Thursday 18th, you will see the correct Series 23 content for the rest of the Series


Officially announced in the Forza Discord server: the new cars that would have been released in Summer and Autumn will now be released in the Winter and Spring seasons.

Another reused season and another chance to try a bit different tunes.
So first the trial, that went great, as 3 out of 6 players quit mid first race (made me very happy, as they were trailing last 3 spots), because of that we won easily 3:0,
I came in 2x 1st and 2nd, as I had a race with second player that also brought tuned car and was actually doing something.
So Modern muscle A 800 Cadillac ATS-V, tune - 149 855 937

Next to Super saloons championship, with two dry fast roads and one wet twisty circuit. Since I'm an Alfa Romeo driver IRL ,choice was easy
Super saloons A 800 Alfa Romeo Giulia QV, tune - 691 009 802
or BMW M2 C, tune - 174 927 742

Vintage championship was also easy choice
Vintage racer B 700 Bentley 4 1/2 liter, tune - 343 157 769
or Bugatti Type 35 C, tune - 179 495 724

and finally cars from the 60's
C 600 Mini Cooper S, tune - 226 885 593
or Lancia Fulvia 1.6 HF, tune - 150 713 653

PR stunts again offroad Agera RS used for danger sign and speed trap and S2 Lego Senna for speed zone.

Forzathon Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 '13, had a tune, that wasn't saved, so here it is now, A 800 - 177 593 842
Also custom easy blueprint for Lakehurst Forrest Sprint (just drive straight) - 691 610 875

Hope this can be of any help.
Take care everyone and have fun :)

I don’t recall a different 13 Mustang in the game, since the first challenge said to use the Shelby it would make sense to keep using it.

Exactly what I came here to say. There is no other 2013 Mustang in the game.
Rules of troubleshooting:
1) Have you tried turning it off and on again?
2) Is your Internet working?

Agree on choices.
Super saloons a dead stock Panamera or Stinger works ok. Stock Panamera grippy thing. Silly first race, but rest is great.
Fulvia HF and Bentley are always fun.

I had a similar thought when I saw 2013 Shelby, and then Ford Mustang, but the Shelby is the only possible car this could be.

Do you have to buy a new one from the autoshow? I got in my GT500, but it failed to trigger the weekly challenge. I even dialled it back to stock without it making any difference.

(A bit later.) To answer my own question, probably not. The message announcing that the weekly challenge has been started appears to be glitched. I then did the drag races and got the usual notice that they'd been completed. The skills challenge and the final race behaved as expected.

Just to make matters even more annoying, I got the same car from a wheel spin this morning, but immediately sold it.

According to ManteoMax and Kudosprime/Milouse the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 has the model name Ford Mustang '13.

I seem to remember that last year there were some challenges which required scoring a large number of skill points and I thought it might be a struggle.

Pleasantly surprised - a skill song was playing - my car's multiplier jumped up to 10 and my upgraded S1 Shelby did it in a couple of minutes.

Another Throwback week, another chance to make my own tunes this time around. I'll start with the weekly challenge, Trial, and PlayGround Games today, and give the Stunts and the Championships tomorrow.


Weekly Challenge:
[Must be done in sequence to count]
  • Own and drive the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 (menu nickname: Ford Mustang '13)
  • Win 3 Drag Strip events in the Ford Mustang '13

Tune Used: The Jake - 149 846 542

The tune is an A-class, since it is a byproduct of attempting (and failing miserably) to make a tune for both the Weekly and the Trial. Started by trying an AWD tune, but that immediately got me to 800 PI. Tried a rear-wheel tune next. Had plenty of power, but wheel spin for days. Abandoned the dual-use tune and went back to AWD with some tweaks. This made it manageable to win drag races. Did one at the Festival, one at the airstrip, and one on the beach.

  • Earn a total of 1 million Skill Score in the Ford Mustang '13


This one is easy, but tedious. All I did was drive around like an idiot banking what I could. Was lucky to get a skill song during the attempt, so it went a little faster.

  • Win a Road Racing Series event in the Ford Mustang '13 at the Lakehurst Forest Sprint

Course Used: Never Trust A Snake - 101 835 472

It's a simple 2.0 mile (according to the meandering driving line I set) straight shot. Ignore the AI (actually, try to get right before you leave the starting area. You'll thank me.), and just follow the road straight ahead. Easy as watching cars pile up.

SEASONAL EVENTS
  • The Trial Co-Op Championship: "Power Move" | Cross Country | (A800) Modern Muscle

Car Used: 2005 Vauxhall Monaro VXR
Tune: The Prince - 325 795 506

This was an... interesting Trial, to say the least. The Drivatars didn't put up much resistance in the first and third races, but a bit more on the second. This car handled quite well, taking a second, a fourth (best I've done on anything at The Ridge in a while, honestly) and a third (mainly because I clipped a house in a turn), and my team swept.

  • Seasonal Playground Games | Express North Rail Yard | (A800) Vans and Utility

Car Used: 1965 Morris Mini-Traveller
Tune: Time for Tea - 967 649 563

I was going to reuse the El Camino I used in last week's Championship, then I remembered the 'steering via Continental Drift' issue it had. So I built up this nimble little thing. Got some speed to it, as well as some amazing cornering potential. Makes for some fun trying to dodge in Survival or Flag.

I can see the confusion some players would have, but the Shelby GT500 is just a trim for the Ford Mustang lol

Only the Morris Mini Traveller or VW Double Cab Pick-Up are worth using in the seasonal games. If the other team has these cars and none of your team does, they will be able to hide in spots other cars cannot reach. Since the first and third events are infected/king, this is kinda crucial for a chance of winning.

It's no good suggesting tunes for other cars when these small ones have an environmental advantage.

The Trial: I tuned up both a Mustang and a Monaro for this. I kinda wanted to keep Mustang-themed considering the main challenge. The Monaro was decent, got 2nd place in the first two and totally messed up the last race. Those crazy buildings leaping out in front of me like that. Fortunately, we all bombed it so at least I didn't kill the team. Ran the Mustang and wow, it just owned the course. It is quick, holds a line, and handles most turns. Can be a little slidey in the sharper ones. I have an idea of the times it ran, but going to do it again to make sure. First place each race.
2018 Ford Mustang GT
Tune: 766 648 831


Playground Games: I figured I wanted to do the Morris. It's small and agile, seemed like a good fit. It got run down by El Caminos and fast vans, but they could not out-maneuver it. Didn't know about the hiding thing...wouldn't do that anyway, just play, man, just play. First team dropped out. Solo'd a flag run and a King challenge. Denied 7 flags and scored twice...one against five. And held King for 2:34...longer than anyone else. That's a win. lol. Had a good team after that so pulled it through.
1965 Morris Mini-Traveler
Tune: 119 804 603

Danger Sign, Speed Trap, Speed Zone: Koenigsegg Regera
Couldn't quite get the Gremlin to the mark, 984 feet was just out of reach. Might try again later.

Horizon Decades -60s Ran the Austin Healey for the 50s challenge, so wanted to do it again fro the 60s. Not overall fast but held turns well. Just steadily climbed through the pack to take the win. But now I have a Karman Ghia so gonna totally try that out. If it's good, I'll post it.
1965 Austin-Healey MKIII

Vintage Pastime Have had this Bugatti tune ever since I got it. It continues to surprise me. Runs well, good through turns though a little drifty. Just run it rally style and it will serve you well. Could put better tires on it perhaps, but I will always run it with Vintage rubber. lol During the Waterhead Sprint, though, the three Auto Unions were fast...two caught up and passed me during the Southward leg, but I got around them in the turns.
1926 Bugatti Type 35 C
Tune: 109 499 083

Family Car Frenzy I was going to run the Mercedes GT 4-Door Coupe...might still, but guess what counts as a Super Saloon? That's right, a Limousine!! Hey, it's a family car...just depends on the family. Tuned up that bad boy, put on good tires and made it AWD. It ran surprisingly smooth. Slow but steady pickup. Good top end. But yeah, running the Ambleside Village Circuit? Good luck. Third was the best I got.

It would be really sweet if they would bring back a couple Toyotas as the daily car. I'd love a second AE86 without having to find one on the auction house.
