1. Is Jeep Trailcat OP for this trial? There was one guy in A790 car that was very quick.
EDIT: to clarify, not cheat-quick, just quick. He had no prestige stars, so was suprised how quick he is.
Tried Trialcat myself. Felt quicker than F-150. But sometimes something that feels faster is not faster timewise, so can't tell if it is OP, because I wasn't looking at laptimes.

2. I don't recommend using rental LM002 for PGG. It was terrible.

3. Two week conclusion on PGG change - participation only. There is still many people that have no idea about that change :(
I think I did 12+ seasonal PGGs since the change and at this point I haven't seen people with "participation attitude", so I am happy. Hopefuly next weeks will stay the same.

Last Saturday, I played the PGG in the Autumn Series 24 with both teams filled. It was great as the battle continued with NO ONE dropping out early. It was fabulous and everyone played with energy and strategy. Everyone brought a car with maximum PI and appeared to well tuned.

Made me proud that this PGG could be so much fun without the worry of winning the prize. This is now an event that can be played over-and-over each week.

Winter cross country trial ... well it went as badly as it could, missed checkpoint when trying not to hit somebody who was all over the place on first, came in 8th at the end, then actually did a bit better and only lost to Bowler and finally came in 3rd lost again to Bowler and Warthog. Maybe Jeep is not the best thing to use out there, but anyway we won 3:0.
A 800 Jeep Wrangler DD, tune - 824 909 208
alternative could be Track-Tor, tune - 443 184 069
or maybe Ford Rockstar truck, tune - 680 389 050
or Bowler, tune - 120 303 908

Since trial wasn't really my thing, I went to Chevrolet championship, where one race is mostly on snow, so time for vintage tires
B 700 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, tune - 678 498 206

Moving to next championship, its Lambo themed one and since its in winter, I already have one car that already runs rally/snow tires as standard :)
S1 900 Lambo Huracan, tune - 488 011 727

So one last solo championship and its UK cars themed one and it's on roads with no snow on them, so race tires work well, just watch out for those nasty snow plows ...
S1 900 McLaren 570S Coupe, tune - 163 844 588

Time for PR stunts now and as always it was Agera RS to shine as danger sign and speed trap star and Lego Senna for speed zone.

Forzathon car this week is a lil rattlebox Audi S1,I tuned it to A 800, tune - 142 259 448, did two street scene events, took it on highway to hit that magic 250 kph and finally took it to my old custom dirt blueprint, where you just dive a bit on a straight line and finish at Derwen **** er trial, code - 764 612 023

To finish this weeks tasks I took this pic :)


Hope this can be of any help to someone.
Take care everyone and have fun, bb

CC is getting to be on the nose, where are the Road Circuit races?

Not going to bother helping this week due to usual selfish 2 years olds that seriously screw you up in CC Trial races (raced several Trials and shunted in several Trials, winning maybe 50%).

I certainly have the power to get out in front but when i get pushed out of checkpoints, acceleration and speed matter for nought.

Extrreme Offroad A class are not known for their pick up, rather more so for their rolling speed.

Trial teams full of anencephalic trolls. and AI nasty. 3 runs, finally complete. Compared to last week, utter chore.
Used ElBarto's Bowler tune, fun, can run down the pinheads that punt you off.
Also used ElBarto's Huracan tune, ran and hid.
R4nson B700 69 Camaro tune also ez slam dunk.
Stock 11 Raptor for PGG. No earthly reason to tune it. Everyone quit but me. Opposing team killed me but most were cool about it. Just make it 2-3 events if everyone gets a prize.
Vantage GT12 for British races. Forget whose tune but fun. No snows needed.
HTH
Thanks EB.

I used the Trailcat for the Trial. We lost two races, but the game gave us the win anyway. Not complaining.

I was doing pretty good until I got shoved by the AI and missed a checkpoint in the last race. That pretty much finished me. There was no catching up. We could have won legit, if I could have held on to those points.

My A class tune is serviceable, but still needs work. It's not ready for sharing.

I do have a tune for the Reventon FE that I'm quite pleased with. (683 213 939). Won 2 of the 3 races of the Lambo championship quite easily. I did Ambleside Circuit first, because it sucks in S class, and predictably I came in 5th. But I won the other two quite easily.

I suspect the people of this forum already have and will experience some absolutely shocking teams in the trial.

Wasted about 10-15 minutes getting into one because I got disconnected then won all my races but the team finished nowhere near winning, some person was 1 star + level 140's + used an A800 vehicle but was useless the entire trial, never scored 100pts and didn't even quit.

I'm sure the majority of the player base just mash RT or LT all the way down or not at all with no in-between.

Didn’t we have A class Extreme Offroad fairly recently? Anyway, I used the Regalia. It doesn’t have great top end but the handling is extremely good and it obviously has no issue with obstacles. I suspect the Trailcat is probably the best option though give the courses don’t have too many obstacles to slow it down.

I haven’t done it yet but the 10 Downing Street event looks a good combination of cars/events. Shame that wasn’t the trial.

A hard season, but I won Ambleside Village Circuit in the Lamborghini which is the first time I have won it on Highly Skilled, especially in the snow. I usually come 2nd.

You did a lot better than I did. I found it the hardest race in the championships. Troublesome AI and for me too many tight corners for a S1 car. My 1997 Diablo SV didn't handle well and I came fourth.

I wasn't particularly bothered and didn't use rewind or restart. I won the other 2 races so in the end I completed the championship but I probably need to improve the way I drive round this circuit.

Thank you, Sfumato, I had to look up anencephalic...then I couldn't stop laughing for a couple minutes. I think we must have shared racing companions.

The Trial - Wow, indeed. This has been a challenge. Ran a Trailcat and a T100. Both are capable of winning each race...but you have to get past all the aggression. First off, sorry Jezza, but I hate any time I see a Regalia in the lineup. For teammate OR AI. I've not seen one yet that isn't all over the place and trying to get around that thing is such a pain. So the Trailcat runs it well enough, not quite as fast as the T100 but more stable, more forgiving. The T100 can get in trouble because it catches air nearly anywhere and can overshoot a checkpoint if you are not lined up right.
1993 Toyota T100 Tune: 393 150 402
2016 Jeep Trailcat Tune: 228 168 177

PGG - The word is not fully out there as I still had people dropping out. Ran the CJ5 as it seemed to be a good platform. And it was. Quick, very maneuverable, and could still chase down others to get crowns/tag survivors, etc.
1976 CJ5 Renegade Tune: 178 619 224

Downing Street - I was either going to run a Lotus or a Mclaren. Found the Exige, tuned it up, and that was all she wrote. Grippy and quick, it got to the front easily and stayed there. The first two races finished 10 seconds ahead of nearly everything else. The last race, I managed two turns badly but still ended up placing first.
2012 Lotus Exige S Tune: 167 813 708

Lambo - Was originally thinking of the Muira but ran a Gallardo I already had ready. Ran well, kept a pace, and took the win. However...Ambleside is another story. Managed to squeak 4th out of it but no more.
2011 Lambo Gallardo Superleghero

Chevy- Tune up a '53 Vette. At first, it didn't seem like anything special, but it just kept moving forward, easily outpacing the AI. Easy to drive and forgiving.
1953 Chevrolet Corvette Tune: 250 310 624

PR Trap & Danger Sign - 2012 Ferrari 599XX Evo Tune: 181 343 933

PR Zone - 1986 Hoonigan Ford RS200 Tune: 167 032 028

Hi all,

Cars/tunes/suggestions for this weeks seasonal for those that find such useful. All tunes are my own, unless otherwise noted, all shared by myself (or others). ~ 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: "Snowed Out" | Cross Country | (A800) Extreme Offroad
**Car used: 1993 Toyota #1 T100 Baja Truck (Autoshow 500,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 CC Offroad / 637 166 137

Did not check the A.I. offline this week for these events, as same tracks we have had before, with extreme offroad, and in a trial, although maybe not as extreme offroad, don't recall. A.I. online were less competitive than I would have expected for a cross country event, at least for my experience this go around. Using the same tune as for previous extreme offroad events in recent weeks, originally was planning to run a Warthog, yet decided to give the Toyota a shot first, things went well, so did not make anything for the Warthog this time. Tune/car is more than capable, easily faster than the A.I. I experienced, while some times unforgiving of mistakes (swings wide in corners, something to keep in mind) as per IngoingCake8592 in general assessment of the Toyota T100. Tune is AWD, engine swapped for the 6.2L V8.

**Seasonal Playground Games | Mortimer Gardens | (C600) Offroad
**Car used: 1972 Land Rover Series iii (Autoshow 20,000 Cr)
**Tune: C600 Offroad SC / 156 856 170

Quick, sprightly and grippy offering for the games events. From what I could see, it lacks the topend of other choices, however they will not be able to make the quick surprise turns of the Land Rover. Seems most of the players this I faced this week do not know of the current win/lose win situation of the games, other team began quitting as soon as they lost the first event, with only two (opposing) staying till the end. Tune is upgraded original engine with supercharger, no aero, body modifications - mudflaps, tire on hood/bonnet, front bar.

PR Stunts:
- Ambleside Approach Speed Zone, 2018 McLaren Senna - using a tune no longer offered ('So Much Grip') by Don Joewon Song, I do not know how the newer tune for the Senna by DJS compares - listing here for reference and due credit,
- The Roman Mile Speed Trap, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544),
- Broadway Windmill Danger Sign, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544).


Solo championships - Raced against Expert, Steering: Simulation, ABS: on, Traction/Stability; Off, Gearbox: Auto.

**Championship: "If You Wanna Be My Lambo" | Road Racing | (S1 900) Lamborghini models
**Car used: 1988 Lamborghini Countach LP5000 QV (Autoshow 220,000 Cr)
**Tune: S900 RWD Road / 241 087 162
**Car used: 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante (HTF)
**Tune: no tune

The RWD Countach was used for two of the three events, with the Huracan Performante used at Ambleside.
The Countach performances well on the sprint event, and less well on the circuit, I could not get any sort of decent placing at Ambleside (as others have said, it is not a S1 track) after many attempts, hence the switch. For the Countach, do not be put off by it been RWD, it is very balanced and stable, easy (considering it is S1) to manage, with a good amount of grip - the only major con. is, if you lose the tail it is very difficult to bring it back, plus a small amount of fishtailing (if kicked off) will quickly throw you off the track. Tune is RWD, twin turbo, with Forza air.

**Championship: "10 Downing Street Scene” | Street Scene | (S1 900) Country: UK models
**Car used: 1964 Austin FX4 Taxi (HTF)
**Tune: S900 Road / 976 734 188

Taking the oddball of the mix for the UK based event, the Taxi. This car/tune has great acceleration, is quick off the line, and very fast (for what it is) - although not as fast as some of the other choices in the event, so getting in front quickly before the A.I. has a chance to run away is key to winning. As usual, apart from traffic in general, the "Monument Wynds" track is the difficult one of the three, my tune has grip, and acceleration, however it is ungainly, refuses to slow (best brakes, huge tires, won't stop?), and throws wide in corners - otherwise, I think it is a fun tune, fun drive (once you adjust), sounds great (to me). Tune is race tires, widebody, which also means chopped roof (due to options), AWD, supercharged, swapped for 6.2L V8, full rollcage, full Forza air.

**Championship: "Chevy to the Levee" | Road Racing | (B700) Chevrolet models
**Car used: 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SuperSport 454 (Autoshow 80,000 Cr)
**Tune: B700 Road Racing / 171 602 478 by "Waznewz"

Could not get any inspiration for what to use for this event, so decided to use a tune by Waznewz, 'B700 Road Racing' for the '70 Chevelle. More than capable, very nice balance, very easy to handle, great drive - although a bit slow on launch (feels slow, yet will catch quickly) - very much recommend. I do know the tune is street tires, AWD with rear Forza air, it also has the supercharger hood/bonnet option, although the tune is not supercharged itself.

Enjoy.
