I have to go out of town this weekend. Any advice on how to approach this one to get it done very quickly Friday morning? Or just hit the auction house when I get back?

I think jumps or speed traps are probably the easiest but then again I suck real bad at drift zones and speed zones.

Danger Signs and Speed Traps are your best bet; the first Danger Sign you are exposed to in the game (overlooking Byron Bay) has a really low target and any S1 or better car will destroy it.

As for Speed Traps, the Highways in a fast car.

Any PR Stunt can be 3 Starred multiple times, so once you find your groove, rinse and repeat.

Go to the Jump PR stunt in the rain forest. It was the first one that was available to you. Relatively short distance that you should be able to 3 star without even changing cars.

Lucky escapes are a bit tricky....

I have been getting a few playing "chicken" on the runway inducing a drift just before crossing but it's literally a bit "hit or miss"...

Speed trap at the goldmine is an easy 3 star one... only needs 135 MPH+ if you need 3 different ones to trigger it then the airstrip speed trap is nearby and is 250 MPH+ and West Outback is 200 MPH+ All a doddle in a speed tuned D type.... I had forgotten how badly they corner though haven't driven one for months!! ....

427 and Daytona Coupe yes, King Cobra no. It is not a Cobra, just a Mustang with Cobra in the name.

I'm going to assume anything named 'Cobra' will work.

Try downloading a drift tune for a Nissan and play in manual shift and just stick to 2nd or 3rd gear and weave between traffic on the highway.

There's also the '93 SVT Cobra, the '95 Cobra R and '00 Cobra R that could work as well.

Maybe you can just do that jump PR stunt 3 times to unlock. Wouldn't surprise me. The challenge does not say 3 >different< PR stunts. Just a thought :)
Then again it is Forzathon so maybe it doesn't work because of some hidden requirements not released to the public. I will try tomorrow though...

The one from Project CARS is the fun one, it's the racing version of it that won it's class in 1971 at the 24h of Spa back in the days. :)

And go with the flow of traffic.

In practice before I came to work, I was just drifting back and forth on the highway and as I came up on traffic cars, just tried to stay sideways as close to them as possible while passing them.

Got several lucky escapes that way.

think this bit needs to be highlighted as it seems a lot of people still ignore this every week and would rather complain about not getting their rewards

So what are lucky escape skills?

So ANY car with "Cobra" in the title should work for "Battling With Snakes". Be it the Shelby Cobra, Mustang II King Cobra or SVT Cobra R. Well, that's how I would do it at least. You never know what cars work and don't work when the challenges are vague like that. "100 Daredevil skills in a truck" comes to mind.

I hope SVT Cobra is allowed because I don't have the Shelby yet, and don't have the money to buy one just for this forzathon.

Speed trap counts as an event so get the 20K Cr for that Merc in the bag already...

Head-to-head Didn't count this time so did the 1 lap blueprint at Coober Peddy in the Shelby Cobra 427 S/C

Just the Lucky escapes left to do... although that is saying "Done! Unlocking...." and I haven't done any yet and it seems to be frozen in that state

Update - next "Lucky escape" reset it to 20% complete....

'95 Cobra R works.

Edit: And so does doing the same PR stunt 3 times.
