Trial was good fun. I used a RWD Donkervoort but there’s a good range of options to choose from. Managed to lose race 2 as I clipped a breakable wall which, in the Donkervoort, is sufficient to cause it to spin around and stop but won the other two easily enough and got an overall 2-1 win.

Yeah good trial, had a good team first attempt, clean racing and 3-0 to the blue team. Bounced off a drivatar into a tree but managed to make up from 12th to 6th, 2nd and 3rd races came first. Cayman GT4. Good fun :)

2nd and 3rd attempts not so fun (testing cars), seems players still dont understand what Co-op means, turned into a train crash

I got it using the 2012 lotus exige with a downloaded s2 tune. It was a very hard goal for me,took me quite a few tries to get it done.

GT86 with 2jz worked for me on the first attempt, x class rating. The other non dlc cars required a lot of attempts to get it in the past. I think it was either a cayman or 370z available in the autoshow that I used before the GT86 was added. Dlc Griffith and 911 can be tuned to x class rating so I would expect the same success with them.

The 850 CSi is competitively useless. It's faster on stock tires and full weight reduction at Bamburgh Coast than with street tires and sport weight reduction, which means the former build is faster everywhere else, most probably.

It does have the McLaren F1 engine available, which bumps it straight to A800 on sport tires and RWD. But, at 1,500 kg, it's like giving Flare Blitz to Entei: it's an improvement, but doesn't address the real issue, which is weight (and stat distribution in Entei's case). Maybe it can work as a full power build with street tires and AWD?

This month doesn't look like it's gonna be any good to metagamers considering the Singer is also very bad in competitive and I wasn't too impressed with the AMG Hammer when I drove it in Rivals. I can't help but laugh when I see cars that couldn't be more different sucking equally in competitive.

Could you post the tune for that GT86? couldnt find any tunes that allowed me go past not even 210 mph. And there were no X tunes, tried myself, same result. Tried with a tuned lotus exige, two attempts at 230 mph max, didnt try further since it was a pain to get that car straight for more than 1 second and i dont play this game to suffer lol. I dont have any other choices, since the other cars available are from the car pass. Seriously these guys keep increasing the difficulty to complete events week after week.

It is shared :303 842 106, seasonal. I just tested it again using automatic shift this time and it passes in the low 240s.

GT86 and Griffith are virtually easy mode for the speed trap.

This is going to be tough for those who don't have the DLC cars and missed the 86.

New week and actually a very nice trial, team got this and my Aston was just trailing behind ... :)
So 3x 3rd, lost to Porsche and Viper, who got better top speed and team easily won all 3 races.
So road racing with track toys of S1 900, where Aston is the slowest, Viper is few seconds faster and 911 being the fastest.
Aston Martin Vantage GT12, tune - 179 667 067
or Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR, tune shared as Road
or Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0, tune shared as Road
or Ford Supervan 3, tune shared as Road

Moving to solo championships and first on my list was street racing with A 800 retro super cars and looking trough my choices, I saw Lambo that already had some sort of tune, but wasn't finished, so a bit of fine tuning and
Lambo Countach LP500, tune shared as Road and it uses rally tires
or Ferrari F355 Berlinetta, tune shared as Road

So first championship easily completed, moving to next and its a road racing with last race being cross country, with B 700 hot hatches. Didn't bother with rally tires as normal provide enough grip to do railroad loop.
Abarth 695 Biposto, tune - 171 615 752

and to last championship and some more road racing with C 600 classic muscle cars, no need to reinvent the wheel, just reuse already tuned hybrid car on vintage tires
Holden Torana, tune - 105 352 807
or Pontiac Firebird trans AM, tune shared as Road

PR stunts all done with well known Koenigsegg Agera RS, tune - 167 849 655, there is also tune shared with road setup and also McLaren Senna that can be used for speed zones.

Now to Forzathon and it requires to use a modern sports car, I picked TVR Griffith, put turbocharged V10 in it, with all other upgrades and easily hit that 3 star speed trap, switched to Alfa Romeo 4C, tuned to A 800 - 151 081 871 to do airborn passes on Mudkickers 4x4. Finished with my custom blueprint at Ambleside Village circuit - 655 072 061, where you can just turn right after first checkpoint and just follow that road, to loop back to finish line. Will also try some other non DLC cars and post back.

Finished with this pic


As always hope thise can be of any help, take care everyone and have fun, bb

Edit
A 160k autoshow modern sports car car can also easily hit 3 star Forzathon requirement - Morgan Aero Supersports, tune shared as Speed trap (turbocharged V10 has more then enough power :) )

Wow, so they stepped things up with the Forzathon challenge.

I had originally tuned up a 370Z. I could get it all the way to 237 mph but no matter what I did, could not squeak out those extra 3 mph. So frustrating. Right after the right-hand bend there is a lift in the road. If I hit it at 170, the front would lift, if I hit it at 180, the entire car took air. I just couldn't get it that little bit faster. Tried a Mercedes but there were less engine options (none) than I was hoping for. lol

Finally tuned up a Lotus Exige. Did it on its first run. Not the cleanest run so there is definitely more in it, I'll try later to see how high I can get it, but it is definitely capable. I'll post the tune tomorrow with the others. Want to try a Morgan Aero next.

Ran the Trial with a Bentley. Wow, had grip for days. Good acceleration in the low end, leaned off a little at the top end. Could not compete with a Cayman some guy was running, it took 1st in all three races. But I took second in two...the middle race was a disaster. This Bentley tune needs a little more speed, but it can hit almost every turn without letting off, so it easily gained and passed almost everyone. Gonna try to relax that a little and get some more speed out of it. Thinking about running a Lotus as well.

And did I see an A800 Super Saloons event? You know I did. Funny thing is, I was not the only Limo in the Games. lol. Each team had one...just ours was better. Hee hee. I guess it's cheating, but man it's good at blocking in the Flag game.

I'd heard that the speed trap target of 240 mph at Moorhead Wind Farm may be a bit tricky so I tried out a few cars.

For me the easiest was a 2019 Porsche 911 Carrera S with an X999 tune by STEVEtheP1R4TE called SPEED TRAP. Share Code 687 401 813. Started from the left where the road forks. There's a grassy hill you can go up which lines up with the road to the speed trap and may give a better start but it probably isn't necessary.

Achieved over 247 mph on my first attempt.

Of course recent playlists are simply a rehash of previous playlists. The weekly Forzathon in Series 29:Autumn is a reworking of Series 10:Spring from 27 June 2019.

If you use a pass car its not tricky, its perfectly doable. The problem is (and most of you seem to forget) that many of us dont have cars like the porsche 911 carrera S or the other pass cars. So, can someone post a tune from a car from the basic pack or that you dont need to actually buy?

I can tell you that using cars from the basic pack is almost impossible. And i say "almost" because sure, probably there is one or two cars that can do it after a thousand attempts. Im starting to lose my patience with this game. MS seems to keep "forcing" players to waste money on cars, even if they dont want to to just complete a lousy fortazhon event. Well, if they keep up with that practice, sadly i will give up on this game soon enough.

Its funny how many of you complete such hard events "on first run". Sorry, i dont believe it. I also tried the exige tunning, reaching about 230mph but it was just, impossible. The car will spin and go air too much. And some of you did it on first try? hahahaha, dont make me laugh.

I posted a screenshot and tune name of me doing it in Morgan Aero Supersport, which comes with standard game edition (maybe that's not enough of a proof, idk) and that was speed reached on first try with 2 rewinds, as I missed the road and went offroading ...

When I did it for actual first time with TVR, I failed big time, as I didn't use proper engine and realized my pick lacks power and so too speed, when used with V10, I was clocked at 397 kph, but that run needed a few rewinds also (one was hitting a car and another sliding out of first turn).
