Back Lane Drift Zone PR Stunt in Spring. Looks like a fairly easy one, on road, only 45,000 for 3 stars but it will be a little more probably for PR Stunt. Practice, you have a few weeks. I'm going to.

In the event, those of the opposing team are shamelessly taken off the road. It's a joke? Please fix the problem.

Seems this series is off to a bumpy start, some strange spin camera bug, online adventure block and loads of disconnects and probably personal problem, FH4 now takes ow so many tris to actually start - took me more then 30 min to actually get game running.
So with not really good prospect lets move to trial and S1 modern supercars road racing, where I was thinking I should actually tune a car with racing tires (Huracan has rally), but since my mood was deteriorating fast, I just picked something, turned out it was right decision, as I could easily cut some corners and kept it under control when pushed onto grass.
I got 1st, 2nd and 1st, team 2:1, thanks to a ... to a ... ugh special person in Nissan GT-R PO nobody could get 1st place drivatar (I caught it just before finish), to that person - "You sir are a prick"
S1 900 Lambo Huracan LP-610, tune - 488 011 727

Then it was time to do some offroad racing in A class offroad buggies (with plenty of on tarmac racing), since trial didn't help with my mood, I just left Ariel Nomad as is and picked Alumi Craft
A 800 Alumi Craft Class 10, tune - 170 755 831

Then it was to Nissan themed B class road racing and I picked a car that was sitting in my garage and wasn't tuned, so I did tune it
B 700 Nissan Fairlady Z 432, tune - 424 254 546

Last on the list of championships for me was offroad racing in A class rally monsters, since I already had lil Ford Fiesta tuned, I just went for it
A 800 Ford M Sport Fiesta, tune - 152 111 784

Forzathon car is one of Abarths. I took my 124 Spider for a spin, tuned it to A 800, tune - 427 083 540 , let it reach that magic :) 201 kph and started jumping off the danger sign west of the festival -Ambleside Edge, where you easily get 3 stars per jump, then just picked my preferred street race and that was it.

PR stunts as always .. Agera RS, tune - 167 849 655 used for danger sign and speed trap and McLaren Senna, tune - 176 256 116 used for speed zone.

Haven't took a pic, since my friend is still not online.
Edit, now I have :)


As always, I hope this can be of any help to somebody, take care everyone and have fun, bb

Edit
Forza finally started, so I could put in tune share codes.

Edit 2
Luckily laptop's FH4 still works, so here is alternative for trial in form of McLaren.
S1 900 McLaren 570S Coupe, tune - 159 984 717

Also alternative to grippy, but somewhat slow rally monster Ford Fiesta M-Sport, a bit less grip, but more speed
A 800 Opel Manta 400, tune - 111 881 094

I used the Nissan GTR PO for the Trial. I'm not sure it was all that good for it, but it was sat there in my garage at 900 PI and I couldn't resist using it.

There’s a lot of fairly similarly matched cars in Modern Supercars. It’s a good car type.

Hi, i don't know why but my forzathon is different. I dont have any 370z o Toyota gt86. The main rewards for my forzathon are an Honda Prelude, and a Ferrari 488 Pista. Someone knows how to fix this error?

Seems the double rewards issue continues for 3rd season. I got green Man addition to the Rimac as 50% reward. Unfortunately for you underlying season appears as the main season.

Hopefully a restart might fix your issue....

I'm getting the same problem, I think it might be related to the Windows Store not actually updating the game. I'll test on my Xbox since I know the Windows Store has been having issues on my PC.

I used the Huracan last night and found its slides a bit thus knocking time off, same with the Jaguar.

Jumped into the McLaren 12C Coupe and blitzed the field mainly due to decent speed but good grip.

Going to try a few more out today. I really enjoy these type of Trials due to the variety of cars which can be evenly matched and the fact it's road events :)

Rex - I was testing various McLarens this week (randomly - pre trial). Scaans’ tune for the 12C is very strong if you want to try that. GFR Codcaos also has a very good tune for the 570S. Ran top 10 rivals times using them on a couple of street courses.

The ATS, which is what I used, is also very strong (as is the Huracan - which shouldn’t slide much with the right tune).

Thanks Jezza, will do.

Was using Grandma Drivings tune for the 12C but i'll give that other one a go as well. Haven't run the 570S yet and i did find a more stable tune for the Huracan i had from ages ago but i reckon i can tweek it a bit more for stability :)

ATS was one i was going to try shortly :)

Am very much enjoying this weeks Trial, those sprints really let you open up the cars :)

Don't use the Nissan GTR PO for the trial. Its top speed is atrocious. I used it the first try and ended up on a majority Nissan PO team. The first and second place drivitars pulled away from us on the very first straight and the GTR's just couldn't keep up.

Switched to the Audi R8 which had a higher top speed and was able to keep pace with the top drivitars more easily.

I didn't have that problem with it, it beat the drivatars easily enough. I have found the Trial drivatars can be variable, and you occasionally get the insanely fast ones.

What tune You was using? Or maybe better question would be what tires compound?
I was using winter tires, so it unlocked some PI. Still it wasn't fastest car, but wouldn't call it slow.

For me worst car at this momemt was NSX with racing tires and racing weight reduction. Past 250km/h it was building speed very slowly.
Best was Huracan. Might be biased on this, because I really like this car ;)

TBH I don't know what to think about this week trial. Nice amount of cars and good tracks, but it always such a mess. Not only first corner. It almost looks like S1 is to fast for most of people.

PS. AI forcefield is strong in this one. Especially that one applied to me mid-air at Moorhead was great.

This Nissan is incredible. I think only the FD 325i is as easy to drift as the 370Z.
May the forced induction be with you.

I just gave the GTR PO 5 attempts at the Cotswolds Sprint rivals, with the default build and tune. My best time was 1:58.7, and it was reaching around 200mph at the end of the long flat out section. With the default build and tune, it's definitely not the fastest car for that track, but it's not a terrible time, and reaching 200mph at the end of that section is a decent speed for S1.

I did the trial yesterday in a Ferrari 458 but will see if I can be competitive in the GTR PO. I agree with Zip that the best car is probably the Huracan though.

Haven't done the Trial yet but S1 Modern Supercars are among the best balanced car category/class combinations out there.

Huracan, ATS, 12C, 570, 458 & the Ascari being the top tier and the NSX, CX-75, both 720S and the Ford GT being the bottom tier.
But even between them the difference isn't that significant.
