I started participating in online adventure just to get ranked after festival playlist. But after 2 weeks (I started only in Series 7 Winter) I'm kind of interested to get involve bit more. So I want to prepare cars so that I can compete decently without looking so bad in an unsuitable car.

So help me out with my basic guide to help prepare the suitable cars. Online adventure thread is 54 pages long so not easy to find some basic info needed.

Modes available (Ranked/Unranked)

1. Team Games (Haven't played a lot so still unranked, not really interested in this mode)
2. Team Racing
3. Free for all adventure (This is the mode I'm playing often)

Races available (Free for all / Team racing)

1. Road racing - Available car class S2, S1 and A?
2. Street racing - Available car class S2, S1 and A?
3. Dirt racing - Available car class S1, A and B?
4. Cross country - Available car class S1 and A?

Questions

1. I remember seeing road racing and street racing. Is that correct? Or am I just confused and they are both same?
2. Is there any other race modes than the 4 mentioned?
3. Are they same for team racing and free for all adventure?
4. What are the suggested cars for each race mode in each class?
5. Can I say we need 2 cars, 1 for winter and 1 for all other seasons?

Also please point me to any basic guideline / post if exist...

1: Road racing and street racing are both tarmac only but different tracks.
2: in Dirt & Cross-Country you'll encounter "Freeroam Rush" between the normal races. A Point-to-Point race without checkpoints.
3: Team Races and FFA use the same playlists.
4: List follows shortly
5: Dirt & Cross-Country can use the same cars in winter. For Road & Street Racing specialised winter cars are recommended.

Car list (the fastest ones and my favourites):
B-Class Dirt: Lancia Fulvia (centrifugal supercharger, rear-aero, AWD), Lancia Delta S4 (Group B mod, AWD)

A-Class Dirt: Bone Shaker (Rally tires, AWD), Holden Torana (Rally Tires, AWD)
A-Class Cross-Country: Chevrolet Colorado, Quartz Regalia Off-Road (Racing V8 swap), Ford Raptor '11 (V10 swap, centrifugal supercharger)
A-Class Road/Street: Bone Shaker (AWD), Shelby Daytona (V8 swap, centrifugal supercharger, AWD), Ford GT40 MkI (AWD)
A-Class tarmac winter: Bone Shaker (Rally tires, AWD)

S-Class Dirt: Porsche Cayman GTS (V10 swap, AWD, bodykit), Hoonigan RS200 (Rally engine swap), Ford Custom '32 (Rally tires)
S-Class Cross-Country: Toyota Baja (Racing V8 swap, AWD), Ram Rebel TRX (Racing V8 swap), Jaguar F-Pace (V8 swap, Rally-kit)
S-Class Road/Street: Bugatti EB110 SS, Porsche 911 (992) (AWD), Pagani Zonda C (AWD), Lamborghini Aventador SV
S-Class tarmac winter: Bugatti EB110 SS (Rally tires), Viper SRT '08 (Rally tires, AWD)

S2 Road/Street: Ferrari F50 GT (AWD), Ferrari FXX (Racing V12 swap, AWD), Pagani Zonda R (Racing V12 swap)
S2 tarmac winter: Lotus Elise GT1 (Rally tires, V10 swap, AWD), TVR Cerbera Speed 12 (Rally tires, AWD)

I would mention Freeroam Rush, which is featured in Dirt/Cross Country series. All players have one starting line and one goal, with zero checkpoints in between, so all paths between them are valid, as long as they're the fastest one.

Team games is its own thing, it works like the Seasonal Playground events if you played those. FFA is like Team Racing but without teams, you lose or win by yourself.

The cars that beat yours and everyone else's. Keep in mind new cars get added to the game over the weeks, so the best car of yesterday may not be the best tomorrow.

Thanks for the quick reply. I don't have the Bone Shaker but rest I have. Will prepare some tunes as per the advise.

Based on your reply can I say for cross country we need only S1 and A, not S2?

Yes, Cross-Country is S1 & A only.

You lacking the Bone Shaker makes preparing A-class a lot tougher. It is the "Jack-of-all-Trades"-car for A-class.

I could help you by uploading all my tunes/builds for the mentionend cars when I'm home from work. I would consider myself a decent builder & tuner backed up by a decent amount of racing skill to evaluate which car works and which doesn't.

I'll look into cars to replace the Bone Shaker (this may take until tomorrow).

Do you have all the DLC-cars (car pass)? Just as an info from which pool of cars I can pick.

Yeah, I came across this when I tried to get ranked in Series 7...

Sorry, I was supposed to ask if the modes are same for team racing and free for all adventure. Apparently yes!

All tunes should be uploaded.
For A-class winter I used the Nova FE.

No STM, TCS is recommended. Also I would highly advise to use manual transmission and shifting after the redline.

Reported changes to online adventures in series 8 were as follows:

Online Adventure Championships have been updated:
S2 Class has been removed from Dirt Racing Championships.
B Class has been added to Dirt Racing Championships.
Freeroam Rush events have been removed from all Asphalt and Street Race Championships.
Collisions are disabled for the first 30 seconds of each race. This change also applies to Horizon Life PvP races.

Thank you.

If theyre going to keep removing all aspects of off-roading, why are we even here? They already put out an all-asphalt game; its tedious and boring as h***.

Road races are tracks with flags for checkpoints and walls on most turns for the wallriders. While street races have the flares and no walls. The street races are always at night and usually wet so have much less grip.

I feel like street scene adventure have changed from night only to sometimes evening(or maybe dawn I can't tell) after the update, the visibility is better now.

Since I already posted a list in here I think I just stick with it by adding new builds/tunes that work well in theirs respective classes/racing types.

- Changed the '11 Raptor to centrifugal V8-engine which increases its top speed by ~20 km/h due to a better gear line-up with the stock gearbox. Now it's up there with the fastest A-class off-roaders while still having aero parts installed.
- Added the Plymouth Atomic Punk to A-class tarmac as AWD with the centrifugal V8-engine swap. On pace with the Bone Shaker and Shelby Daytona.
- Added a very easy & stable R8 (new version) tarmac build for S-class. One of the fastest cars on handling tracks. Made a clip on my Xbox profile which shows its fantastic cornering precision.
- Added a high-end Ferrari 599 GTO AWD build for S-class tarmac. Somewhat challenging but it pulls like hell (currently #2 on my test track only beaten by the broken Bugatti EB).

It's just so much fun to think about new suitable cars and ways to make them work.

Thanks so much for all the replies, especially you Rayne SE. I'm building up my cars based on your suggestions and trying few tunes from you as well. Let's see how I par with real people which sadly I didn't try much until now...

I know that this question was asked many times before. But is there any chance devs can explain how the algorithm behind ranked points work.

Yesterday, on 4 possible races, I finished 3 on first place and one on second. In the end got first position. Got score +65.
Today I was more or less second on every 5 races. Ended up on second. Got score +65.

I have tried the ranked drift adventure and have no idea how ranking works.
Can someone explain?
I have had podium finishes and beaten a few ranked players but nothing changed on my rank so I'm confused as to what I am supposed to do..
Do i need to actually outright win the whole thing in order to gain rank? (that aint going to happen)

Cheers

Are you still unranked, have you completed 10 ranked adventures to receive a rank?

I suggest you not to start ranked adventures if you are looking for competitve adventure. You will get more frustrated the further you go on with it.

My max rank is lvl 8, was very close to 7 at some point but I hit the wall. I tell you what happens there. As soon as you start reaching rank 9-7 you will slowly start to notice a lot of players teamming up in 'random' team/convoying in 'solo' ranked adventures with their low level collaugues (new accounts, etc). These low level guys teammed up with the convoy leader (hardly you can notice they are in team especially in solo ranked adventure unless you play a lot and see same ppl doing the same stuff), these low level guys are ramming and preventing you as a racer to finish first letting their leader (often weaker than you) to win. I have reported like 10 or more guys doing this, seeing them all the time in ranked. I'll quit ranked for this reason, FH7 is more competitive with their new race regulations. MS, Turn 10 does not do anything to make online better in Fh4.

One more thing. Guess what.... rank 9-7 and better means you are already in top 500. Now, everyone else sits above rank 9 (i.e. 10-20). Can you imagine this? 99% of gamers cant reach rank 9 and better? They simply gave up progressing in ranks not because they are worst, they are just victims of rank 9 - grand master exploits. They are mainly exploiters or damm patient nolifers :)

Hi, I'm having a problem.

I have so many class A cars, that when the car select menu comes up, I have trouble finding a good car for the race type. There are no options to filter or sort the cars, and even if I had previously bought a suitable car, and put a good tune on it, I can't find it in time, and the game gives me the Jeep Trailcat for an A class street race, so naturally I finish second last, falling in rankings.

Does anyone have a solution to this?
