I have done the trial at the first try with my ford Capri but it is not well balanced, for the first and third race ford raptor is the car that you have to use, It has a big advantage on the other ford.

EDIT:
Confirmed, the ford raptor is miles ahead the other ford in this trial, I tried it and won easily all the races even with very strong teammates

I used a Roadster, finished miles ahead of the AI (and my team except for the final race when I slowed down to hold up the AI, because we lost the 2nd race in the final moments).

I was looking forward to the GT70. But now I am disappointed.
- The iconic livery has been removed. (Probably because of the BP license?)
- All Ford decals, including the roof, cannot be removed.
- The fog lights cannot be removed.

These are still acceptable. But why can you only install off-road tires?
Other classic rally cars like the Stratos and Abarth 131 are tarmac Tires can be installed. And the stock tire compound has less grip than the off-road tires.
I wanted to set up the GT70 for a tarmac, but the lack of tires for the tarmac forced me to set up this car for off-road.
I hope they will add the proper tarmac tires to this car in a future update.

Ok trial I would say though I expected it to be at least A class when I saw the name a couple of days ago.

Somehow managed to land on a drivatars roof and inevitably end up way behind, catch up and then clip the dirt during a jump, flipping my car and ending up 2nd to last all within the first 2 laps of Mudkickers, somehow finished 4th and won the following 2 races.

I used the Escort RS too, Raptor is probably good for Mudkickers but the water in Tarn Hows Scramble can be avoided enough that it isn't necessary to have a Raptor to avoid getting slowed down.

The car surely has weird traits. No tarmac tire upgrades. Stock tires seem like some sort of retro sports compound. Not like the Vintage Race tires but more than enough grip.
Fully adjustable stock suspension which is set extremely soft.
Rear and front aero decrease PI on B700. Front aero that decreases PI is very rare.
The aero values seem like a mix of standard aero and vintage race aero.
No idea why PG programmed it this way.

Again trial went well 3:0 and 3x 1st.
Reused already proven car, even tho some of teammates did know how to drive, my Focus came on top, so
B 700 Ford Focus RS '03, tune - 172 525 704
alternative is B 700 Ford De-Luxe Coup, tune - 177 425 525

Next to another offroad championship, this time in SUV, easy choice really
A 800 Jaguar F-Pace S, tune - 139 974 046

so keep it offroad, why not cross country championship
A 800 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited DD, tune - 824 909 208

now its maybe time to finally catch some tarmac championship, ok, so
S1 900 Lambo Huracan, tune - 488 011 727

Moving to PR stunts and again time for Agera RS to complete danger sign and speed trap and Hoonigan RS200 for dirt speed zone.

Forzathon car Lotus 3-eleven, its not an easy car to drive, but if I tried to upgrade it to S2, it was like driving on ice. So I left it at S1, tune - 112 324 550, went to easiest speed zone there is - Forrest Green, to collect easy 3 stars a pass,, then took it on highway and drove into the traffic, to score near misses and finally did easy race at Astmoor heritage circuit for slingshot skills.

To finish everything, I took a pic of Hoonigan RS200 at railyard :)


Take care and have fun everyone bb

Edit
Added alternative for trial.

Or if they actually happen to read the end screen when they win. It says you only need to come in second. Course, they have to make it that far first.

El Barto, I love the roof pic. I have a few myself including a Limo...that was a trick. lol

Can't decide which is the best car for the Trial.

I like the Ford Escort Cosworth 92 but it has its faults with the first race, all the other races it can be dominant.

The 32 Ford is pretty dominate across all races.

The Mustang 65 dominates race 1 but lacks it for 2 and 3 but is still quite competitive.

Going to race a few more Fords and see what else is good.

Looks like an even field of cars for this trial if the correct tunes are applied which is refreshing for once. :)

I used the '03 Focus. It could have used a bit more HP, but with the gearing I was able to make it work.

Haven't got around to that one yet but will give it a go. You got a sharecode for your tune on it?

Raced the Mustang '68 and it goes well, especially in race 2 and 3 but that 1st race seems to be the albatross around the neck to win all 3 with a comfortable margin.

The raptors do well in race 1 (when the driver isn't ramming people that is) and seem to win by a good margin but race 2 and 3 they haven't got the speed to keep up (race 3 maybe).

All in all i've had some good races with different cars so far and i quite enjoy this weeks trial.

I used a Transit Supersport Van,2011. Lots of HP, easy to throw around, great at blocking. Pretty amusing.
EnviousDragon10 tune.
793 445 022

ElBarto, thanks for the Huracan tune. My tune just wasn't meant for these. EZ win.

PGG everyone quit before the end but me. Infected was quick, Flag rush funny. Fast Kia, so actually scored 2.

I understand the complaints of competitive players but I really enjoyed driving this car in stock form... Starts at B694 so very close to my "ideal" Classic Rally PI.

I think Playground also did a good job porting the model into the game. Looks very nice indeed. Shame you can't remove the foglights. Similar to the Opel Manta. They even share a sound...

The Ford Roadster should comfortably beat almost all other options. It's pretty pointless, though, unless you enjoy doing 3 time trials on your own.

I wanted to take the same photo, but I fell from the roof and crashed my Gymkhana Focus. Very sad :(. But I took picture midway to the ground. So watchout guys, it is very dangerous ;)

@trial - I definitely don't recommend Capri FE. Just don't use it even if really really want.

@gt70 - what a ugly car :P
Stat wise to me it looks like A or S1 dirt car. Anyone did already some testing (in rivals/ranked/testtrack) ?

The Ford Roadster should definitely be the best option for the 2nd and 3rd Trial race. For the 1st I would set my money on the '11 Raptor.
Did 54s as lap time with it and 1:19s for 2nd track. 3rd I can't remember.

@ziperr:
Only used it for B700 as road car yet. Managed high 1:15s on Holyrood Circuit, mid 1:07s at Astmoor and 58s at Greendale. Very sluggish off the line and slow during acceleration. Cornering speeds are awesome for B700 though. Good & fun option for Unranked.

Sure:

126 847 478

I don't usually share tunes, unless I'm comfortable with a reasonable measure of success with them myself. This one may not be my best, but I guess it didn't suck enough to clear the bar. I welcome any constructive criticism, though.

Yeah, I doubt it’s that even a list. I used the Capri and won all three by a distance but I’m sure you’d have beaten me in a Roadster. What is good though is that there’s a very diverse range of cars with different characteristics, so is a good car choice generally. Not a fan of three circuit races though - i was ahead by the first corner in all three and, given I wasn’t running it as a time trial, was very bored by midway through the second race.
