    This is terrible, it has never taken this long, it's too many things for one week, D class races? Can we finish today?????? Than 3 meaningless street races in a truck. waste of time. What's wrong with 1 street race, what is the difference, Just going to to the same thing 3 times. Yea fun. I want my Thursdays back!!!!!!
    Make it so when you do the championships you can do all 3 races without having to load each one separately like co-op. Why do we have to suffer? You have the slowest loading game I have ever seen so make it so we do not have to load so much. Oh now 10 trading paints to waste more time, are you trying to make this take longer? cause it seems like it.

    Pain in the .... trial, people coming in with stock Bugattis and such, playing bumper cars, ...
    First race total mayhem, I try to quit first race and my game CTD, second race 3x 1st, but team with stock cars and not much experience 1:2 for drivatars.
    Third try 3x 1st, 2:1 for players one stock Ferrari with great ramming skill, but nothing else (luckily they quit).
    Car used S2 998 Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster, tune - 175 062 114

    Next was vans and utility championship, where I was thinking maybe worth using power tuned Traveler, but just went for Transit
    Might struggle a bit on straights, but can corner flat out.
    D 500 Ford Transit Supersportvan, grip tune - 924 508 848
    alternative Morris Mini Traveler, power tune - 113 152 826

    Then it was cult car championship, where again power or grip, being me I took grip, can have similar problems as in previous championship
    D 500 Morris Minor 1000, tune - 123 005 148

    Finally to Australian cars and since its offroad, why not using group A, its a beast :)
    A 800 HDT VK Commodore Group A, tune - 130 623 025

    Forzathon car ... ummm truck MB Tankpool 24, I used my B 700 tune - 133 409 255 for street races, but had to do engine swap for speed trap, used Astmoor speed trap.
    Finally went to highway and traded paint ... :)

    One last thing, a lil pic


    Edit
    Forgot to post about PR stunts.
    This week all done by Agera RS, finally using my own tune - 167 849 655
    For speed zone McLaren Senna, tune - 176 256 116 could also be used.

    Hope this is of any help to someone, take care and have fun, bb

    I nerfed the AI for the weekly Forzathon. Street races in a semi? Yeah. Not doing any more of that than I have to.

    Used the Astmoor speed trap. (Just southwest of Mudkickers) Low enough target, decent run-up. No problem.

    Trading paint skills; used the highway.

    For the Down Under championship, I used the Holden Torana. It was already tuned from a previous event. Easily won. I did the trail race first, and was able to get into 2nd place very early, but struggled to catch up with the first place car until I got onto the gravel. It was a struggle to overtake, but I did eventually pass. The circuit races were no problem at all. I don't know if I need to put the difficulty up a notch, or if the tune is just that good. (128 071 338 if anyone wants to try it out.)

    The truck forzathon was one of the worst experiences. Street races, so it's a free for all field, in a vehicle that massively understeers, is too heavy to accelerate, and in its stock configuration the gears aren't lined up right so it can't sustain its top end on its own. So slower to corner, can't accelerate out of them, and can't hold its top speed to make up for it in the straights. Yikes. And you want THREE wins in it? Followed by 3*ing a speed trap, which requires using what minimal upgrades the car has and finding the ONE place that's possible in. That's just not fun.

    I will admit though, I do like racing lower classes. Not a fan of the vans but I already had one specced that I like so I used that. The cult cars though? Gimme those all day. Free wins thanks to how broken the Peels are if you upgrade them properly while keeping them at D100. You can literally run circles around your opponents and win. Didn't bother with the trial or playground games this time out as my garage is almost full anyway and you won't let us auto-sell prize cars so they sit and rot in the AH because everyone else has 3-4 of them too.

    The Weekly MB #24 Forzathon challenge is recycled. I remember it from a few months back and people were **** ed off about it. While on topic, all of the weeklies from this month are copy pasted from one of the previous months. Also, what's up with the trials these last months? They are getting glitchier. Teleporting cars, AI cars going from 0 to 300 in half a second, force fields, teleporting... pair that with constant disconnects. I think that throughout the months the devs managed to update this game from an okay game to a bad game.

    Edit: glennfinan chase is the easiest street scene event to win with the MB truck. Just put it to the lowest possible difficulty and have a nice sunday drive to the finish. If you're having trouble with getting three stars on a speed trap, speed traps at the fortune island are much easier (if you have the full game)

    Group A Commodore isn't available yet, unless you time travel, which can draw a ban. Not much help to anyone that is wanting to do the championship with currently available cars.

    Rules of troubleshooting:
    1) Have you tried turning it off and on again?
    2) Is your Internet working?
    3) https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live-status < Check here for service issues.
    4) If all else fails open a service ticket and/or forum post.

    Besides its available in autoshow:


    Guess you were referring to HOLDEN Commodore Group A SV


    but I don't own HOLDEN Commodore yet
