No, there is never any prize for completing monthly rivals. You will need to wait until Winter when the Raesr is the 50% completion prize.

Best trial ever imo. Never forget the first run through nearly everyone quit the 2nd race because it was looking like it was gonna be our 2nd lost. Ended up winning with 2 other players. Then those other 2 quit half way through Goliath leaving me to hold on to the lead. One of the more exciting things to happen in this game for me. Lol

Check the 2 latest ones, it really is easier than trying to explain it.

Was looking like a great trial too, 1st time I've bumped into a fellow forum regular in the game, team 2-0 up and I was comfortably in the lead before.....'that'......happened.

The AI stopping with me is even stranger.

Update: Just happened again in the very same place so I think it's as usual a problem with my XB1 which I would put forward for the 'most unreliable and erratic Xbox One that still actually functions' award and expect to win if such an award existed.

Meanwhile earlier in the week I got out a near 20 year old PS2 that's been in a cupboard for months and was on GT3 straight away with zero issues.

That happened last time this Trial was on, lots of people got disconnected at the same location on Goliath, near the lighthouse. Do you have port 3074 forwarded on your router to whatever device you're playing on? That's the main network requirement to reduce connection problems in the game.

I used the Lotus Eleven for the Trial, not realising it was the prize car. Everyone else had left by part way through race 2, so I cruised to an easy win against the AI. Maybe they thought I was trolling them by doing it with the prize car?

I'm impressed by the stock tune of the Tachyon, handles quite nicely, with decent ability to turn while braking.

So new season and a good start for me - nice qualifying run, nice trial, feeling good, so yeah :)
Trial then, A 800 Lotus road racing ... picked the Elan updated a tune a bit, but if I'll be doing it again, I'll go with Exige.
1st, then 3rd as I missed the checkpoint (too much grip lol) - still finished ahead of any drivatar and 1st again - only 3 cars didn't DNF :)
Still 3:0 for team, that had few people being there just for the ride.
Lotus Elan, tune - 132 382 986
or Lotus Exige, tune - 740 641 791

Feeling relaxed, swiftly moving to solo championships and starting with S1 900 street scene racing with Italian modern supercars.
Simply reused my Ferrari 488 GTB from a while back
Ferrari 488 GTB, tune - 163 570 108
or Lambo Huracan LP 610-4, tune - 488 011 727

Then it was time to do some cross country racing with S1 900 rally monsters, again just reused already proven cars. Might also try Lego Mini :)
Hoonigan Ford RS200, tune - 545 011 302
or Hoonigan Ford Escort RS1800, tune - 151 786 541

Last solo championship and its B 700 road racing with vintage racers. Time to combine weekly forzathon and this, so start weekly forzathon and complete it until last challenge, then finish with this championship. Again using already proven cars.
Bentley 4 1/2 liter, tune - 880 758 322
or Bugatti Type 35 C, tune - 461 825 307

Time for some PR> stunts and as usually used Koenigsegg Agera RS, tune - 167 849 655 for speed trap and danger sign, used Hoonigan Ford RS200, tune - 428 155 751 for dirt speed zone.
All done on first try with some mistakes, so I guess many other cars can easily smash them too.

Weekly forzathon and its any vintage racer, I used Bentley 4 1/2 liter, tune - 880 758 322 , best to combine it with solo championship.
Starting with showoff skills, I went to Mudkickers 4x4 and got them in first few turns, then time for some speed traps and since Astmoor speed trap has lowest requirement to 3 star it, I simply took my Bentley, thrown V8 with 1k HP in for few runs up and down, finished with doing solo B 700 championship.

Time for finishing pic:


And Super 7 weekly reward is Mercedes Benz AMG Hammer

So hope this is of any help, take care everyone and have fun, bb

I used the Capri FE, but it was hard anyway. It might be my own shared tune, not sure.

@Berniev666 - What was the tune you used? Love a Focus.

I used the Hoonigan focus non welcome pack stock. Increased the diff locks and more gear as it was topped out. It won all three on highly skilled without too much trouble. I'm not a huge fan of cross country or rally monsters especially at S1 so the rest was a bit more enjoyable.

You know, it occurred to me that the weekly Forzathon and the "Old Habits Die Hard" championship both require cars from the Vintage Racers category. All of those cars are either 10 million CR at the autoshow, or exclusives that need to be won or made available somehow. And none of them are up as prizes or in the Forzathon shop this week, or available from Backstage pass. We also have an influx of new users on Steam who probably don't have the CR to afford one yet, or unlock the one Barn Find that qualifies, which requires you to buy a 15 million CR castle.

Which means new players from Steam are basically shut out from a huge portion of the playlist this week, unless they can grind enough CR, or find one cheap on the Auction house.

I used a Lotus Esprit for the Trial. First race I got back to third after being blasted off the road and stopped perpendicular to the track. Otherwise it went well.

Games were fun with the tank of a Bentley. Fast and reasonably controllable.

Ferrari 488 GTB handled the redline rockets. It's a fun car that doesn't need the Forza wing. It was run on unbeatable.

I used the Napier Railton for the next championship. It isn't an autoshow car but seems well populated in the auctions still. I noticed it is a weekly Forzathon car and one of the requirements is 3 podiums. I worked through the first tasks and used this championship for the fourth, consistently finishing 10 to 20 seconds ahead of the unbeatable drivatars. This tune works well for racing and games when a vintage racer is required.

I mentioned above that I used a Focus for the last championship. Stock with minimal tuning to the diffs and final drive ratio. This was just on highly skilled to get through it. The rest was on unbeatable.

I used the same B700 Railton for the weekly car. Starting with a blueprinted race at Glen Rannoch Trail. It has lots of switchbacks allowing fairly easy drifting with or without using the ebrake. It also 3 stars the Astmoor speed camera and then double duty with the championship.

The stunts all handled with a 98 Supra rally tune. A couple of attempts for the speed challenges and then a single pass through the castle and jump. It's titled Winter Rally but I use it all the time for stunts, Forzathon Live and general messing around.

Here are the tunes I used with share codes. I usually find it easier to search by name though:
Trial: 2002 Lotus Esprit, Road Race, 180 353 749
Games: 17 Bentley, Railyard Games, 497 670 493
15 Ferrari 488 GTB, Road Race, 348 739 111
Napier Railton, Games and Race, 118 344 904
98 Supra, Winter Rally, 609 842 300

After getting booted out of the Live sessions 3 times, (one of the two times I was in Games in a Jag and had even completed the 3:1 win before getting booted!!!) out of the blue I ran into IngoingCake8592 on my 4th attempt before he was booted from the session during the second game. We ended up winning the round 3:0 and (finally) collecting the prize, but not the way I want to win over fellow racers.

What is up with the servers?

Took me three tries to get Games done because of disconnects. Trial went without a hitch. Well, connection-wise anyway. lol

So you saw me in my Bentley...the only non-white car on my team. Sorry I couldn't stay in the game...I like when I meet up with other forum members "organically." lol

I did otherwise i wouldn't have the new car. The annoying part is that the Ferrari Formula Drift one was already completed and i wanted a second one for a different tune.

I don't think this is a huge problem. The seasonal championship has the Regera as the prize car, which you can get from the AH for around 300k credits if you buy one out. So people aren't missing out on much there. I never personally do the weekly forzathon, but that's probably more of a problem for new players who are more likely to have things they don't own on offer in the forzathon shop. What will really be annoying for them is the high price of things in forzathon points, due to the way prices have been increased as the player base has accumulated more and more points, so there will probably be many new players grinding forzathon live events.

Hello All,

----Firstly, I seem to have some sort of bug related to tuner/painter influence, as I am getting downloads, yet the influence does not shift at all - been at least two weeks of this - certainly is a problem on tuner and painter, maybe photographer too, not sure for others - not a problem is seems on the race type influence, as they are giving out wheelspins (all maxed out on races) regularly. I could find no useful information, so putting it here if anyone knows more - it does seem this is an existing problem - but again no useful info, whether for cause or possible fix.

And now, cars/tunes/suggestions for some of this weeks seasonal events 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: "Team Lotus" | Road Racing | (A800) Lotus
**Car used: 1971 Lotus Elan Sprint (Autoshow 57,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 Road / 299 110 936

Might be just my luck, don't see anyone else mentioning it - today, far two many of the 'teammate, what teammate crowd' were in the Trial. My first though was new players via Steam, but on a second look all the rammers I encountered were prestige one or great, in other words people who should know better! No doubt on the ramming been on purpose, had a few on straight runs, no issue passing only to have my teammate turn and push me off the track. Lotus Elan, easy to drive, quick of the line, with good speed through corners, however slightly low on the top-end (race results in successful Trial - 11th due to teammate, (12th was that teammate in question, who I passed even after needing to do a u-turn to grab a check point), 1st, 1st for first 3rd of race, 2nd until last quarter, 4th overall (A.I. in 2nd/3rd). On the first two events beating the A.I. is easy, (provided your friendly teammate does not run you off the road), in the Goliath top-end causes problems, add in typical A.I. "I can keep up with you, yet not have the speed to pass, but if passing opportunity presents itself, suddenly I am multiple Km/h faster than you" and you get the idea. Top speed is 238km/h (and what ever in miles), which if you are looking at tunes/cars, it would be worth considering this as the minimum top speed needed to do okay in the Trial. Tune is AWD, Forza aero, with race tires.

**Seasonal Playground Games | Railyard | (A800) GT Cars
**Car used: 2017 Bentley Continental Super Sport (Autoshow 200,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 Games RY / 118 737 510

Driving the tank. Really good acceleration and speed, corners well, but not quickly, aim wide when changing direction. Tune has no aero, AWD as standard, with rally suspension running standard/stock tires.

PR Stunts:
- Derwent Water Speed Zone, 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor - 'A800 CC Offroad' (138 009 364), took a few tires, mostly about working out the best tactic for the two bends, running from the north, over the hill straight into the start point (best way to aviod bend on the road leading in),
- Moorhead Wind Farm Speed Trap, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544), traffic, first non traffic run got it, starting on the uphill,
- Bamburgh Castle Danger Sign, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544), remove objects in the way, start at castle wall with straight run to ramp, hope for no random uncalled for sideways motion due to terrain, done.

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

**Championship: "Forest Monsters" | Cross Country | (S1 900) Rally Monsters
**Car used: 1980 Renault 5 Turbo FE (Forza Edition)
**Tune: S1 Games / 127 161 098

Race for the new car, and also to get this annoying one out of the way. Again like the recent rally cars in cross country event, we have unsuited cars running cross country - the devs creating these really need to actually be made to sit down and prove they can do these events, if everything is supposedly aimed at the 'average' player, these events are off the mark. Anyway, on with the show, first the circuit race is a breeze, the sprint races less so, too many breakables to deal with if you are in the lead - giving the A.I. ghosting thought the same things a huge advantage (note the easier circuit race has next to no breakables to deal with). Car/tune is twitchy, needs find control into and out of corners if 'offroad', is okay in the few dirt/tarmac areas, quite quick once out of the first few gears (wheelspin). Can beat A.I. on expert (my difficulty), can not make promises on higher difficulty settings, races were 'competitive'. Tune is AWD, Forza aero, mudflaps, hood/bonnet with two lights, rally tires. Yes, tune says 'games', no need to worry, it suits cross country as I give greater ground clearance in game tunes vs. typical rally tunes.

Enjoy
