I finally did it in a Centenario with a Rally suspension for 500+ feet, however, I'm going to try again with a new tune and car to see if I can extend my personal best.

I had to do this in a private session with no avatars because even with rewind I couldn't seem to get a clean run. One trick I found was if you look south and a little west of the jump there is a triangle in the road. The line on the left side of the triangle lines up with the ramp. If you start on the left side of that road and follow the white line closest to the curb it will set you on the right path to hit the jump cleanly.

Update: Maxed out a Porsche Cayenne Turbo with an offroad tune. Started a little farther back than the bicycle lane I mentioned that aims right at the ramp. On the 2nd try I jumped 525 feet and the car was very stable and it was easy to do.


Many thanks.

Just when it seemed that recently the challenges have become too easy, something sinister was lurking in the Forza Horizon.

First we had to make a sluggish sports utility vehicle fly through the air near the airport, then do great drift great air and great drift simultaneously with no other screen messages, waiting for a japanese word to appear.

Now we have a challenge with very little reward which, together with the timber mill, is recognized as one of the most difficult danger signs in FH3 to get 3 stars on.

I've had several unsuccessful attempts at the Surfers Park danger sign, using 10 or so of my best vehicles upgraded to the max, and using rewind. Logically I should give up since there are much easier ways of getting 150,000 CR but emotionally I'll try some of the vehicles and ways other players have suggested.

According to the Surfers Park Leaderboard, numerous vehicles have been successful in getting 3 stars and cars in videos include:

Bugatti Veyron
Lamborghini Murcielago 2010
BMW X6M 2015
Ultima Evolution Coupe 1020 2015
W Motors Lykan HyperSport
Local Motors Rally Fighter
Ariel Nomad
Ferrari 488 GTB
Ford GT Horizon Edition
Lamborghini Centenario
Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Unfortunately not many players reveal exactly what upgrades or tunes were used.

I deserve compensation for not being able to get the horizon cars in the July 14 - 17th forzathon. Nothing was unlocking for me.

Compensation for what exactly? Why do you feel you deserve compensation for it not unlocking?

Are you sure you did it right?
Did the achievements unlock?

I know this, I already checked. I was curious as to what his response was to that question.

Thanks for the answer!

I tried a few different ones too


Same for me, didn't count. It's first thing I tried.


Strange, it worked for me. That or I completely forgot about a race. Apologies for possible misinformation then.

Head to head counted, but bounty head to heads did not.

My achievement unlocked after a normal head to head.

Surfers Paradise Danger sign Arial Nomad Max up grade set suspension to about 1/5th and dampers to minum spring hight max dif set to 100% front and rear power split 50%, downforce to minimum front and 50% on rear. If you start at the jump and drive in a strait line through the park you will notice you have a strait run at this jump starting from the road about 600 meters or so on your way to the road you will knock over some trees and fence .Once near the bike rack face the jump and go .like the clappers. you need to hit the right hand side of ramp for max jump you should land on the road. Do in private free roam to adviod fail by hitting traffic on landing.

Weird...typical forzathon
I tried normal, bounty and the ones to put as your crew and none registered for me
Maybe it was certain Jags that didn't register head to heads as well
Not to worry..i just did regular races and registered no issues with the same Jag
Unlike some others i change things around if 1 way doesn't register

Compensation for what exactly? Why do you feel you deserve compensation for it not unlocking?

Are you sure you did it right?
Did the achievements unlock?


Yes I did everything right, I did everything once and then power cycled, restarted the router, played a different game, then repeated the process another 2 times.

Many thanks for the advice. At present some of my standard cars seem to be better at this jump than my tuned/upgraded cars but I think I need to be patient and persevere.

If it didn't register it, you didn't unlock it.

539.45 ft for me in a 918 xclass (tuned by me), rally suspension (ride height raised to the max) & tires, and I only play in solo mode. My car for this jump I kept the same tune as I was using for circuit / races, only fiddled with suspension and used rally tires @ 29 psi. Approach, don't go too far to the right or else you'll hit the "invisible wall"

I tried 3 head to heads for the Jag achievement. Didn't unlock it, so I tried regular exhos instead, and it unlocked. Hard to say there was a problem when you need to tell us more.

Thanks for the advice and over the new few days I'll be trying out a few different cars and set ups. I have 2 standard 918s and I'll upgrade one of them to X class.

I did this jump early in my career with an Ariel Nomad as I had few cars then. When I remember correctly, I just got the required distance and used rewind quite often, because I always crash-landed. But I like these challenges like the airport jump before, as a certain amount of fine tuning your car is required.

Okay Slightly off topic but I has to be said. WHERE IS THE #44 Porsche Flying Lizard? Whenever there is a new update for the game I check the achievements for the game for upcoming #Forzathons. I know I'm not dreaming because I swear it was suppose to come out mid July around the 12. But now when I check to see it the Achievement is not there. So why Playground and Turn 10, why take such a wonderful car out of the game?

Well technically, they didn't take it out, they just never put it in.

As to why, we'll probably never know.....
