I can't be the only one who drove the Zenvo for the first time and thought the spoiler was glitching out.

The spoiler of the Zenvo acts very weird around corners and I struggled at first finding the stage. As Manteomax has posted it's opposite the Horizon Festival Site garage entrance and there's usually some smoke nearby. The Photo Challenge is worth 3%.

Please can you show me exactly what and how much of it needs to be in shot, as I've tried a couple of times and neither one registered as being in the correct location?

Search Twitter for the hashtag #TheHeadlineAct for examples from the community. The full stage doesn't need to be in the shot but you may need to have a clear view of it.

If I have understood well, PGG has changed the requisite to win the prize in Playground games, it is not more needed to win the event but simply to participate (2nd place).
Can Someone confirm please?

Is the Zenvo any good? My first try with a tuned version (by a good tuner) and I went straight into a wall as it didn’t turn. Hopefully, that’s just me needing to get used to it!

So here we go into another series, hope everything goes well with this one. My start did exactly go as planned, when I brought road tuned Alfa TZ2 to cross country FFA ...
Trial went much better tho. I was looking trough my 60's cars and started thinking about Mustangs, but then saw already prepared Lancia. Altho its a rally tune, I won all 3 events and team got 3:0.
Lancia might loose to power build car, with good driver, but as it was, it didn't :) Its again grip build, with vintage tires, so you can take plenty of corners flat out.
C 600 Lancia Fulvia 1.6 HF, tune - 150 713 653

Moving to offroad modern muscle championship, where again I was presented with choice of going Dodge or Chevrolet. I just took my fav ...
S1 900 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, tune - 404 333 702

Swiftly moving on to road Italian car championship, again easy choice
A 800 Alfa Romeo 4C, tune - 151 081 871

To the last cross country championship, with extreme offroad ... cars/trucks/whatever :), again no brainer here for me, where Bowler or Trailcat would probably work much better, but :)
A 800 Ford F-150 Prerunner DD, tune - 171 071 708

Forzathon car for this week is Dodge Viper GTS ACR and since challenge is to score ultimate speed, well just slap everything on and go for it. Getting easy wins on road circuit, where one option is to reuse my custom Astmoor Heritage circuit from a while back, where you can just cut back to finish line after first checkpoint (share code - 731 149 405), or just drive normal one, its a nice circuit. Finishing touch was to do some drifting at Festival loop.

Again it was Agera RS's honor to do danger sign and speed trap, had to use Lego Senna for speed zone, for some proper grip.

Finally it was time to unlock this weeks new car. This pic did it:


So this is what worked for me and hope it can be of any use to somebody else too.
Take care everyone, have fun and bb.

I had fun with the Trial in a Triumph Spitfire. Stock tyres awd and turbo. I'm no great tuner but this thing flies. 2nd (holding traffic back for team mate) and 2 firsts in a 3 0.

Handling on my tune could do with some improvement, possibly trade power for tyres (Brit!) but I reckon the car definitely has potential in this class. I would be interested in others thoughts on the Spitfire. Thanks!

Great set of races, great cars for this month, first being the Zenvo TSR-S of which of which was super easy to get and i love it, grips very nicely, looks fantastic how ever only problem i have is its sound. they've given it an "American style" V8 sound, closet sound to how it actually sounds is the 488 or 458 as it's a 180 degree V8, not an "American" 90 Degree V8.

Don't believe me? watch the vid:

Definitely changed to just participation. No reason to quit a game now. I just lost and got the car.

Since the rumble trigger function on my Elite 1 Controller broke yesterday I couldn't test it with the accuracy I would love to because now I get zero feedback while braking or accelerating. Thus, my test runs on my track aren't as reliable as normally.

AWD build without front-aero: 5:17.871
AWD build with front-aero: 5:15.288

This would rank it in the upper quarter of "Hypercars" but it can't rival the cornering speeds of the S2 kings.
The car is simply too heavy. Maybe a choice on some tracks for rainy conditions because it has strong aero-grip.

This can be seen by the better time with PI spent for front-aero. Normally cars are slower with it on my track. Without it can't make the high-grip corners.
Drove my non front-aero build in Unranked against players from "RIZE" and Nalak28 who ran the aero-variant. I got them on the acceleration but couldn't negate the disadvantages through the turns.
In comparison to the Zenvo ST1 it's a big improvement though.

Hopefully not my tune? I was going to ask you to be my Stig and try my tune of it for Edinburgh West End. It slaughters your CCX ghost up the 25 secs or so point, but after that I can't match you through the slower part. I'm rather rusty at playing, so I wasn't sure if it was the car or my driving.

As for build, I tried 3 different builds:
1. High power, no front aero, and 1 level wider front tyres
2. Lower power, front aero
3. Lower power, no front aero, full width front tyres

I couldn't tell all that much difference between them, except that obviously #1 gained more at the start. I shared #3 in the end. I was able to get within a couple of secs or so of your CCX ghost, but I think the car can do better than that.

For the launch, the rpm peaks twice when you shouldn't shift. Wait for it to go into the red zone for the 3rd time, then shift.

For the first set of right hand bends, go to the right of the driving line where it is red, and you can go flat out all the way with that line.

No it wasn’t yours Bree. That wasn’t coming up in my list but I’ve now found it. I’ll give it a try at West End. Edit - think I’m too tired tonight as my first couple of attempts didn’t go well! Will give it a proper try tomorrow night when I’m feeling more with it!

1962 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso (C600) is my champion for Season 24 Trial.
Love the tune which outran the entire group of eleven other drivers in all three races. I'm just the driver but the tuner (BIOSYNC49) has done an excellent job:

Tune: 465 379 257
Design: 273 395 405
Vinyl: 183 057 068

Regarding stage, you must be close enough for it to trigger.

I did all of the offline events. Modern Muscle in the dirt sucks, but it's manageable with a stock car on rally tires. Only the mud in the Forest Trail will give you problems. Sadly it's at the beginning of the track so there's plenty of time for Drivatars to pull a lead... If you're not good enough just DL an AWD tune and power through it. Extreme Offroad was generic, easy win with the proper vehicle. For Italian A800 you'll want the Alfa 33 Stradale, but I suggest to at least try to have fun and use something like the Countach or the 575M.

The featured Showcase is pretty bad, because the Ariel Nomad is faster than the original car used for this event (Rahal Letterman Fiesta), so there's a high chance of bikes hitting your buggy and pushing you off the track. Still better than the Sprite, though.

For Forzathon 10 Ultimate Speed just add all power upgrades to Viper, easy enough.

Speaking of the new photo feature, I think it can be very useful to let people complete the Horizon Promo in a better way than "let's spam Blueprints of varied car categories", but it just comes way too late in the game's life cycle for it to matter, which is pretty sad. Wish these things were in it from the start instead of the clothes and dances.

May the forced induction be with you.
