I mean I haven’t tried slicks but I’m going to guess that winter tyres will massively improve your prospects of doing this event.

Try the Ariel Atom with ForbiddenBeef21’s X class tune. It is capable of going 8-10 mph faster than the requirement without the need to bounce off the bridge etc.

I guess no one should complain about all the obnoxious players who take the first turn at full speed and completely ruin the race for half the field, because clearly this proves that is the way this game was meant to be played.


You can complete the speed zone without bouncing off the bridge in the Ariel Atom V8 with an X class tune as suggested earlier the thread. The grip and downforce is insane with that car and even I got 144mph and I lost a bit of speed around the last corner by drifting a bit.


Perhaps. I don’t know and I don’t need to know. It didn’t take me that long. Second attempt at just slamming full speed into the bridge and I cleared 150mph. So it’s that or use one or two other cars in the entire game I suppose.

I stand by it. Garbage design. Slamming full speed into a bridge should never be better than good driving. Ever.

It would be very nice of ManteoMax if he could place emphasis on "previously available" when listing Forzathon "Exclusives" in his future posts.

I managed both the speed zone and the camera with a Ferrari 599XX Evo. It has race springs, stock wheels and sits level.

I ran mid 140mph in the zone with a bit more to get out of it. I was slowed down more on this run from hitting the bridge too hard. Other attempts I had a slight drift tap on the bridge but didn't get the rest of it right.

I hit the speed camera at 207mph from the south after a couple of attempts.

The tune is shared as "Winter"

Also, if anyone needs I shared a 2015 Dodge Challenger Winter road race tune for the Tour de Force championship. It has the flares and low spoiler rather than the Forza aero. Won on unbeatable.

Speed zone tip:

I used El Barto tune for Hoonigan RS200 -> super easy - 240 km/h+ !!!

Ok, so I have been away for a bit. Trying to transition work-modes has been crazy so I'm still not 100% back yet.

But if you think I was going to miss an opportunity to run Dirt Track Date on a Trial, you are fooling yourself.

As soon as I saw it was for any American-made car...hey, Cadillac is an American car. What's the rating? A800? Hmm, I have a limo that is A800. Oh yeah.

It runs great, holds a nice controlled slide when lining up for the jumps without the tendency to go wide like a few of my other builds. Only ran it once so far but placed 2nd-2nd-1st. Only placed second to a very aggressive teammate" who was rather combative. I received a "We're on the same team" text AS he was trying to push me wide of a gate. Nice. So whatever, I'll hang in 2nd for the win, I'm ok with that. On Windmill (one of my favorites) I passed him in mid-air and then just took off. It is so much easier without the haybales to deal with.

I've done the rest but nothing to post about. Speed trap was tricky, speed zone was a tough challenge for sure. I remember a few PR stunts that didn't bide well in Winter, this for sure is one of them. I did it by accident in the RS200. I botched the East-to-West approach which ended up clearing some obstacles when trying it on the return. I'll do what I've done before and see what other vehicles I can get to do it. But it feels really limited for sure. Might break out the VW ID R as that thing normally can hold all manners of turns. Aston Martin Vulcan comes to mind as well. Haven't tried the Atom yet, but will.

I don't normally go in for blueprint abuse strats. But in this case, I decided to make an exception.

Hmm, I have been in a couple of session on the Trial where people were running an Inifiniti Q50. I wouldn't think that would qualify, the country of origin must have been misfiled.

The Plymouth Atomic Punk is definitely overpowered in this event. Hard to lose with that car.

Absolutely.

Once it's in front it's gone, see you later, nice racing with you, don't bother trying to catch up.

I really enjoyed the truck race on the Goliath. Decided to do the full Goliath because, well, why not? Could have gone for something with top speed stats but went for a Unimog on a grip tune....the Iron Knights caught up with me exiting Edinburgh and, for the rest of the lap, it was a running battle trying to block the road to stop them passing....had the widest Unimog ever!!! Every now and again, one would brake too much and they would all fall back then quickly close back up only to repeat it..finally got away from them on the downhill run past the Windmill

Thanks for reminding me, that Bone Shaker and Atomic punk are also an option ... very OP :)

When I did it I cut across some of that corner by accident, and didn't get failed.


This is what I referred to previously about going off-piste. The only way I found to maintain some speed after the bridge was to cut the left corner immediately after and take a wider line entering the final right. Event does seem to disproportionately scrub speed there in my experience.

Having recorded 140+ I can't be bothered to revisit and try do it 'clean' with some of the OP suggestions. Have had more fun running the boneshaker in trial. Yes its OP, and then some, but I'll take that as payback for the speedzone. Not tried the AP yet but may give that a go at some point.

And on the discussion about rewind, just my tuppence but its not a metric recorded by the game so doesn't bother me in the slightest. Happy to state that I used it many times for this event. Didn't always help mind, re traffic!

I got it without the bounce when I came into the zone at a higher speed because for once there was no traffic making me move and messing up my line. Traffic can be extremely distracting.

Signed in just to say you can avoid all traffic by starting a job or story mission then exiting. Traffic stays gone until you fast travel or order a different car. I learned that here in this thread a few pages back.

I did that and used the FXX E for the speed trap, but still can't get that speed zone. Last time I used a tune from this thread and all the tips, still 2 mph under. Can you get 80% without that?

Shelby Daytona is really good too, if you get a tune with snow tires.

Yes me too, as soon as you enter in the speed zone the game crashes, new bug?
This happens only on PC, on xbox no problem


Still no fix on this. Cannot do any speed zone or drift zone on PC, just keep crashing.
It didn't crash for 2hrs of play tonight, also played some game online, so don't think its my PC or connection problem.

It is something related to the account, as I wrote in another thread, in my case on same computer the game crashes in speed zone and drift zone only on my primary account, with my secondary account the game works as intended

From 1 perspective it is kind of hard to argue against the stunt choice this week, I don't think I've ever seen this many posts in a weekly events thread.

I hope I don't come across as elitist here but it is quite refreshing to see something with some degree of difficulty for once, even with the correct car you still need to drive well to complete it.
