Oh I see what you mean now. Well I mentioned it for anyone who wants to make it easier on themselves. I don't see it as cheating as most / all of the top times are likely to have done it. Rivals is hard enough without random traffic.

No worries Pinkie. I’ve gone a few seconds faster now. The 570S is an excellent car choice though. I can’t remember if you tune yourself but, if not, try Rocknrolla’s tune which I think is the best for that car. Believe it or not, I chose this course because it is probably one of the best for traffic - usually if you get a bit of luck in the double chicane it’s ok. Glenfinnan and Mortimers on the other hand have traffic popping up on all sorts of blind corners 😂.

Seen your new time already no way to beat...
Traffic suxx bit every 5th try or so you have "blocks of 3" and they block everything or they start turning in checkpoints
Think there was 1 run without traffic only in the last 90deg left turn with turnsignal on so enough to restart :D

Never used rewind so yeah thats not an option for me.
My 600LT (with automatic) can beat/do Jezza's 2:25 Audi time but no clean run after 5 extra trys
Touching a car doesnt slow u down but invalidates time, crashing through walls is total fine
The Volvo's 850R/Polestar can beat easly but hard to drive with available tunes


I'm not sure you understood what I was saying? It has nothing to do with using rewind.


*Cough*cough*cough* Pssssssssshhhhhhh!!!! *cough*cough* ...Ixnay, Ixnay, Ixnay!! cough*cough*

FN!? The newer kids should have to endure the same amount of repetitve agony by way of ridiculous oncoming traffic that we had to for so long! Like dealing with a fleet of Grandma Moses cars that put-put-put along in one direction juuuuuuuuust until you get right on top of them and then they decide to make a sudden illlegal U-Turn in your direction that sends you right back to the starting line. They haven't seen enough of them just yet!

Also, they might miss out on a whole barrel of monkey's-worth of fun with the mysterious Celestial Prophecy Traffic Patterns, where alllllll the stars in the heavens are perfectly aligned to fulfill some ancient prophecy that conjures up 17 some-odd vehicles out of thin air to descend upon you and the very same intersection or otherwise narrowly designed thoroughfare that you just happen to be approaching and turn it into a Vehicular Purity Guantlet of Doom & Destruction, where only allow those with the purest of souls and cleanest of driving records have a chance to pass through. We wouldn't want to rob anyone of such rich and fulfilling gaming experiences, would we?

I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want that on my conscience, no sir! Why, they're entitled to enjoy everything this game has to offer! If it was good enough for us to suffer through battle through enjoy thoroughlly for so long with no end in sight, it's good enough for them as well!

😄 ...No, in all seriousness though, I'm sorta still waiting for the companion trick that retroactively refunds back to us allllllll the time and aggravation spent/lost before that little expansion manuever was revealed (and wouldn't you know it, I still have yet to even try it). 😐😑

Uh, there better not be!

Street is not as popular, for the reasons mentioned above. 🚗🚓🚕🚙🛻🚌🚚

Good course this. Improved to 2.20.4 in the CCX. Nfx6621 tune. Requires careful handling or TCS.

I see I'd already set a decent time here, I've improved by a few tenths though. It's a tricky course, a bogey one for me in fact so I used to skip it when it came up in ranked online.


Oh my god, I never knew this. I never bothered much with Street Rivals because just getting lucky with the traffic was a 1/10 kind of event, let alone putting a good run together. I figured everyone was just way more patient than me, thanks!

Wait, you gave Aleriooon a trick? W-why?? Some of us deserve a Church-Sunday-at-12-noon setting and others an Abandoned-highway-at-3AM setting. lol

The 155 is quite strong here, it has enough grip for the higher speed corners and strong acceleration out of the sharp ones as well. It's not particularly forgiving over the numerous bumps/small jumps in the road, so those will take some practice, and it's very easy to lose grip on the small dirt section if you're overly aggressive with steering and throttle input.

Traffic glitch (or whatever you want to call it) is an absolute game changer. I was 3-4 seconds slower with the NSX for a couple runs before switching to the 155 and getting rid of traffic. Drag tire tunes aren't the ticket for this course, for me anyway. I probably should have tried a couple more cars before going straight to the OP thing though lol.

Curious to see if anyone can wrestle the Monaco KC through this track. I'm going to give it a whirl but it's most likely beyond my skill level.
