Retro muscle in 4x4? Eww.... Classic muscle would have been more fun. Even rally suspension, the classic muscles are.... Eh. The monte carlo probably be best bet for an offroad build. Vettes and vipers even full height be awkward. Plus their width will give some issue on the 4x4. Tire sidewall profiles as well. Want some meat and narrow for good control over the few bumps that are there.

Just got lucky with a good team and won the Boneshaker event 5-0. When you're 3-0 up why doesn't the event end there rather than making us play a pointless 2 more rounds though, like in team adventure?

Well they raised the Forzthon prices a few weeks ago and then proceed to not give us anything worth even buying. Good job. I'll save my points again this week. Can we at least get the 812 Superfast again??

Anyway, pumped to finally have the 300zx. Hope that Championship isn't a PITA.

Asked on FB and was told the community was easier this week, no 180 degree turns in pouring rain again! So, hopefully that is true!!

Great to see the 300ZX Z32 back in the game, but one thing I noticed.. It's missing suspension options? There is only stock, rally and drift suspension.

How come?

Also unless I'm wrong, the car pass is over now? If so, when does the next DLC cars come?

Car pass is over, I would expect new cars with the next expansion.
Rules of troubleshooting:
1) Have you tried turning it off and on again?
2) Is your Internet working?
3) https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live-status < Check here for service issues.
4) If all else fails open a service ticket and/or forum post.

I enjoyed all of thus weeks content. Not the biggest fan of the playground games (and I formally apologize to anyone who had to group with me), but I still had a good time with it and got a rare, epic, awesome PvP car that I will never use lol

Seriously though, there so many complaints about the different events each week and the rewards... i just wanted to say thanks to all of the developers, staff and fellow players for making this game what it is. You all are awesome

It acted up for me too (Xbox One), although I was able to complete it. It seemed like it only registered when driving on certain types of road surfaces.

This week seasonal stuff, community tracks, there was few corners where was almost impossible to see next checkpoint but in overall that first one was really nice, maybe in b-class car would there better as in C600 cars lack of power.

Street scene was ok, but while i was doing that i was wondering are these seasonal low class events PG answer all of those who is want lower class online and as well tuners who want to get rivals mode so building lower class should have more meaning.

Playground games, i didint like those in earlier horizons and with team based i like those even less. And when score is 3-0 why dont event just end like in team adventure once again one more thing that could make better.

In cars, i like to see 300ZX back but i dont like how it lack race supsension option. Regelias, lots of power and aerodymics is like brick but i really like these cars, type-d espicialy looks really awesome, can i get one in real life also? :D

Glad they keep adding the "drive xx miles" challenge but can't be bothered to fix it. In the past driving up and down the coast road was the easiest road to find that actually counted. Just keep acting like super annoying bugs don't exist PG.

Also nice to see they didn't change the rally challenge for the XJ220. For the record, the XJ220 was NEVER going to be a Group B rally car. It was vaguely designed to be a Group B circuit car while in the initial design phase in the 80s. Group B circuit racing never really happened and by the time the XJ220 came out in the 90s Group B was long dead. Sadly since someone at Playground saw "Group B" in the wiki article for the XJ220 and didn't bother to do any critical thinking, we will now have a huge group of people thinking its supposed to be a rally car...

God, I love this game but PG's constantly wrong decisions and ignoring of bugs just kills me.

Same here, only did them to complete a Forzathon. Now with the Team Based does your Team have to WIN to get the car?

Try driving up and down the highway a few times. That worked for me and my game is in km.

"Hrm.... Analytics show not many are playing playground games... Ideas?"
"Promote in game?"
"Earn points?"
"Have a league?"
"Take the most complained car in online multiplay and have it as an award for winning after spending an hour playing playground games as a seasonal championship?"
"Oh! Last one is definitely the best!"
