I already had an A class tune of the Maserati GT shared, which I had developed for the moorhead wind farm rivals event, prior to the full class rivals being added. However, it had rally tyres, and I wanted to try making stock tyres work. I'd say the stock tyres build is definitely faster for this Trial, I managed to just scrape into the top 100 for the Meadows Sprint rivals. I've shared the stock tyres tune.

Now go back to garage, swap back stock engine, install supercharger and do one more run on Meadows :)

I got disconnected the first time on Elmsdon then whilst racing lag made me miss a checkpoint so I could only recover to 4th. I swear that race is cursed! xD

Maserati won the second race easily and then I finished 3rd trying not to wreck a very determined team mate in a Bentley who seemed hell bent on winning the race haha.

I can't believe how nice that thing drives in the rain. Me and the fastest drivatar blew the field away at a soggy Bamburgh.

I had a similar experience with the trial. First position dropped before the Elmsdon race, Bentleys all over the place and a lot of coasting and braking early to avoid them. The Maserati was a nice drive. I generally use a heavy tune for the trials and pgg. Also, I was expecting a lot more comments about the drift pr stunt.

Here are some drift tunes that were pretty easy to accomplish Back Lane.

Sorry, too much in RL going on to play Forza.
Did manage the trial, Alfa Romeo and modern sports car championship. Used Alfa Romeo 8C for trial and won all 3 races, only on last race other player in Maserati came close. Did try to get in with my friend, this time in Maserati, but disconnected every time.
Other two championships were done in same car - Alfa Romeo 4C.
Have also '53 Corvette ready for last championship.
Tunes are shared, if I find the time, I'll post more details.

Have fun everyone, bb

Hello, late again!

Perhaps still can be some help even now, so, 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: "Vamos a la Playa" | Road Racing | (A800) GT Cars
**Car used: 2010 Maserati Gtan Turismo S (Autoshow 156,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 Road Trial / 175 943 405

Had a play around with the Bentley, and Quartz, before (as other have said here) deciding the Maserati is one of the more solid choices. Had trouble in the Trial, required a few attempts before I managed one that stuck, also noted the 'pole position' issue with the Elmsdon track. Placed okay at Elmsdon, not podium, but scored, due to a few errors on my part, blitzed at Bamburgh, ran fourth from twelfth after missing a checkpoint (don't recall details, 'force' related) in the Meadows. Solid easy to drive tune, some grip, some power, tune runs rally tires, AWD with no aero.

**Seasonal Playground Games | Rail Yard | (B700) United Kingdom
**Car used: 1964 Austin FX4 Taxi (HTF)
**Tune: C600 RY Games / 150 167 324

Time to use the unused - British Black Cab. More than able for this seasons games, in my games only the OG 60's Mini was clearly faster, others may have had a speed advantage, but for the location I did not see it. Tune is AWD, with vintage tires, chopped top, and 3.2L inline six engine swap.

PR Stunts:
- Back Lane Drift Zone, 2013 BMW M6 Coupe FE - 'Winter Drifter' (829 404 137) by STEVEthePIRATE,
- The Grange Speed Trap, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544),
- Leap of Faith 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: "Flying Fifties | Street Scene | (C600) 1950s
**Car used: 1955 Chevrolet 150 Utility Sedan (Autoshow 35,000 Cr)
**Tune: C600 Road SC / 161 657 759

Slowly but surely bit by bit run the lead down. Car/tune takes time to get up to speed, but no trouble catching them all (expert). Easy to drive, no real unpredictable behavior beyond feels heavy and turns as you would expect a heavy car to do. Tune is RWD, sports tires, supercharged, no aero.

Running the same car/tune for the next two events -
**Car used: 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C (Autoshow 74,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 Road / 171 558 277

Tune in both cases is AWD, with rally tires, no aero, but runs the hazard lights on the roof - as it worked with the livery I was using (seemingly no longer listed in the hub), searching "SBK Safety Car" will find similar if desired.

**Championship: "Alfa Romeo and Juliet" | Street Scene | (A800) Alfa Romeos

Easy enough event, with my only issue been that the A.I. system decided that the lead A.I. car was going to be ultra quick and make a good break between itself and the pack - only to be slow and meek when passed, not even managing second place.

**Championship: "Sports Day" | Road Racing | (A800) Modern Sports Cars

Slightly harder, more competitive racing (expert) than the street scene event, maybe due to more options for the A.I. to emulate. Again however, was able to win all races without too much trouble.

That's all folks, enjoy.

I used the Mazda RX-8 for sports, Hudson Hornet for fifties & the Giulia for the Alfa chanpionship. All won without too much trouble against unbeatable drivatars. Stable, quick and really nice cars to drive.

Finished 2nd in the PGG in the Sunbeam. 2 defeats in a row after a run of good form, but 2 less people on my team made it tricky!

No, im not an hyper professional drifter,ive been only playing for two years and i play the game to have fun. Its not a job lol.

Have you got an RTR Mustang, Formula D 599 or Formula D Viper? There are "God like drifting" tunes where you use only 1st gear and the car drifts itself, you basically just control the throttle.

They have a weekly PR drift zone about once every 6 months. I don’t find them easy either but they are relatively rare. Just do the online - there’s no requirement to win or to do anything other than participate, so it’s literally 20 minutes at most to get the required achievement.

Have you tried the 1968 Abarth 595? It's very good for drifting because it's so short, so it easily fits on the road when sideways. I can't remember if I've shared my drift tunes for it or not, but you can probably find drift tunes for it from top tuners easily enough. The Formula Drift Viper is also very good (with a tune rather than stock). There are some other excellent drift cars, but it's so long since I've done much drifting that I can't remember what they are any more.

I've been drifting it a bit today and had some success with the 98 Supra with a RWD tune. I've shared it, 262 408 733, 80150cr, but I'm sure there's a lot out there. Having a decent tune is half the battle. I've been consistently getting over 60k with it. I just leave it in 4th most of the time, manual shifting, ABS, SCM and TC turned off.

An example on Twitter ... here

For me it's easier to get higher scores for the back lane zone starting on the west entrance, the side by the player home. It has a better run up and then most of the zone is downhill.

I could finally do the trial with my friend and my Alfa took first two victories, on last one I was second, in draft of my friends Maserati, with my tune.

This drift zone is giving many people trouble (including my friend), I did it in my offroad tuned Agera RS.
Did my new PB before this run, but didn't record it, this run is 14k short of it.

and here are my atempts:
https://youtu.be/Xm5TjW4p_Dc - hudson hornet with random AWD tune, 1st run
https://youtu.be/jMf2MxP2hgg - stock SLS, 2nd run, next run was better by around 10k
https://youtu.be/Dgsb7qXFAPk - SL65 Black Series with random AWD tune, 1st run, even with that mistakes it was good to clear it
https://youtu.be/3nxU2wnLWWQ - stock falcon, 3rd run
https://youtu.be/NeeLal8Fmy8 - AWD falcon with 2min build (just parts added on), not enough power, 1st run

IMO I would use AWD. Rather something longer than 595 or Mini - in my hands they are too twitchy.
And as mentioned before - no assists + manual

If you're decent at drifting, yes, you can do it with many cars and without a good tune, but if someone is struggling, they should use something as good as they can get. I tuned the Abarth 595 a long time ago, but hadn't shared it before today. Before I shared it today, I experimented with some settings changes, and everything I changed made it worse, so I was happy it was well optimised, and shared it. There is a lot of personal preference in drift tunes, though, and the RTR Mustang is certainly very different in feel to the 595.

I'm using the #25 RTR as well. I think it's pretty much identical to the the other one, but has cool green lights instead of a pizza for a steering wheel xD

As a seriously rubbish drifter, I found it easier to start from the other end as it makes the first corner easier.

Used Drift 599 with the kenblocksohn bloke tune, and managed 52k for my first ever 3 star drift zone, in auto. Normally get 1 star.

Also, stop after 15-20 minutes, do something else and come back relaxed for another go, rather than getting frustrated. Worked for me.

Yes, I agree. My post wasn't about to brag, but just to show that you don't need super tune to make it. This is one of easiest drift zones in the game.
Personally, I can't make any short wheel base car to work properly in drift. Can't say if that depends on diferent technique or something else, but it just doesn't work for me.

Maybe it would be best if George RGJ post a video of his attempt?

Ok, late but hey, it's here. lol

The Trial - I ran the trial quite a few times, it has been an experience. I was rarely ever able to get out front early so it became a battle of bad drivers. My first time running was in a 2017 Bentley, and right near the beginning going around the rotary, I got in a force battle between two AI...they shuddered my car back and forth like mad, it was funny to watch. I wish I recorded it. The second track was rough with the Bentleys. The turns were too tight and too close together to effectively transition. Could still place, but it was tough to make it to the front, especially against a Maserati. The third track was my most successful having more consistently placed first with each of the three cars I ran. I had success with a Bentley Continental in another race at S1 so I was committed to making a Bentley work. I ran the 2017. It was fast but could never get enough grip to handle the turns adequately. I ended up with a decent tune for a 2013 but it is not forgiving. If you get caught in traffic, bound up with crashers, or take a turn too hard, it is very difficult to make it back to the front. It is capable of leading and had a pretty decent feel to it. But this is not its best event. I did have a good bit of success with the Maserati. My first tune was very grip heavy and handled all the turns well but suffered in straights. So I took a little off and put it into power and got a good balance. But worst of all were my fellow drivers. Out of numerous runs, I had one...one where we treated each other like teammates. My second to last run tonight was more like a Battle Royale than a race. Two were 2017 Bentleys and you couldn't get through a turn without getting wiped out. Fortunately, in the third, there is that first full right-hander that allows me to squeak by while everyone else piles in. But it just gets frustrating.

2010 Maserati Gran Turismo S Tune: 501 945 815
2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed Tune: 110 403 041

PGG - I knew I wanted to run the Taxi...there may have been better options, but this was going to be mine no matter. It turns out, it's pretty good. Has decent speed, turns well, and it pretty stable.
1964 Austin FX4 Taxi Tune: 154 861 729

Sports Day - Already had the Abarth tuned up, and got to run it with the livery I'm entering in the contest, so double win. lol. Ran well, had good grip and decent speed. Easy to drive.
2017 Abarth 124 Spider Tune: 148 908 803

Romeo & Juliet - I knew I wanted to run the P3...but I also needed something a bit more reliable. The Stradale is fine. Good speed, good handling. The P3 however, is just plain fun. It's a bit slippery, but it has the power for sure. Just gotta rally-style the back end in turns and feather that accelerator and you're good. Not a novice set-up, lol.
1965 Alfa Romeo Stradale Tune: 881 654 207
1934 Alfa Romeo P3 Tune: 179 794 439

Flying Fifties - I wanted to run the Chevy 150 thinking it would be a balance between weight/power...but never got to it. Did up a Hornet and then the Porsche. Total opposite ends of the spectrum, lol. They each run well but wow, the Porsche had no grip whatsoever. Figured at C600, no need or room to upgrade the tires, but it really suffers for it.
1952 Hudson Hornet
1951 Porsche 356 SL Coupe

I made a surprise discovery while tuning up a VW Type 2....and accidentally made a pretty decent drift car with it. I took it over to the drift challenge and set my personal best in two consecutive passes. I am more of a powerslider...drifting does not come easily to me. And the cars that are 'set up' as drift cars are disastrous to me. I have a few that I have done up to suit my driving style, and managed to complete 28 out of the 30 drift tracks. S-Bends was the undoing of me. I just couldn't get it done. My first pass with the Type 2 almost beat my best try at that point. Ran it a few more times and finally nailed it. Then was the gravely one over by Ambleside. I just couldn't find where the scoring line was, seemed to have nothing to do with the guideline or the inside of the turns. But finally hit it with the VW. So yay, finally got that achievement. lol

VW Type 2 Tune: 128 873 622
