NOT awesome at all, PG always mess up with the specs of most cars

stupid short and wrong gear ratios, car change 6th gear under 300km/h and reach redline around 345km/h LOL!!!

on status screen, 0-100km/h in 3.9s and top speed 388km/h, really?

the previous CCR, LESS POWERFUL can do 395km/h

the REAL CCX do 0-100km/h in 3.2s, top speed 395+++ km/h

it's too difficult obtain the real data, PG never disappoint me!

At least the Vovlo behaves reasonably well in winter. I'm more irritated with that its left side mirror reflects the wrong half of the road.

But you're right though. It's as if they're mashing things together randomly rather than considering what things go well with each other. I'm a bit surprised they didn't make it an S1 muscle car cross country community championship at nighttime in heavy show.

Do you really need snow tires with b700 AWD? I didn't, took 1st all 3 races. And I never used the mirrors

Tips for Weekly Challenge.

- Crash Landings are easily attained north side of Bamburgh castle where there are small dunes and fences.
- Barrel Roll is easiest to get in air strip jump ramp near the Speed Trap
- '19 Raptor has perk for Cross Country races, it's unfortunately not that great car in it's class for it's PI at least in stock form IMO. I found City Outskirts trail and Mountain Foot Cross Country to be winnable with this on higher difficulty levels if you race it stock.

Rally Fighter Champ can be won with stock vehicle at least up to Pro.

Did Ford Championship with Focus RS which I actually build for playground games. Made championship really easy. Took MG Metro for AWD Champ which I had again, built for Playground Games, won 2 out 3 to win the champ. Bit funny, the way it's not meat to be played.

Didn't realised Trial had B700 limit. Built S1 Polestar, ended racing with rental stock Polestar. Ended in game where everyone was racing stock Volvo. Team win 3 out of 3, personal won 2 out of 3. Definitely had lot of in team racing going on in this trial but good team no matter.

Won Playground games event in first try, other team had one player left after first round or so.

PR stunts:

Bugatti Veyron SS X tuned to Speed Trap.
Tuned Ford RS200 S1 (non Hoonigan) for Speed Zone
Hoonigan RS200 for Danger Sign

No you dont need them but it certainly helps if you can keep it within the PI limits.

For B class ranked dirt in the snow, I have a specific car that has a decent amount of speed. Its terribly slow on the road but in the dirt, I can keep my foot down and it keeps grip. Very easy to pass people while they're sliding into walls on corners

I don't believe the Volvo can even use the snow tires and stay in B class. It's already B652 stock, snow tires place it just a hair into A.

Yeah, I know. My point was it doesn't need them in B class given its already AWD. Would they be nice? Sure. But I've won the trial, 3 different times, 1st place every time, stock tires. I've seen bone stock Volvo come in second. It's not a difficult trial.

For anyone that wants to "double dip" - the Raptor is shockingly good at A/800 for the Ford cup. Tons and tons of torque an a 10-speed transmission will do that.

    I might have been in the same session. Both teams had 6 players but after round 1, 5 of the blue team players gone. But I'm still baffled why the remaining player stayed in the session and made us go until round 3. I'm not against playing but with 6-1 it was not interesting at all.

    Hats-off to that player anyway for scoring 3 flags against all of us. (We scored 16 that's another story)

    This week trial was a piece of cake. I tried the trial 15 mins after season change, strangely I had only 1 team mate. Usually at this time teams are always full. Nevertheless we finished all 3 races in the 1st and 2nd giving 0 points to AI team! Too bad I got beaten by the other player though...

    For the Weekly Forzathon with the Raptor Ranger, the Barrel Roll stunt is easiest achieved if you have the Lego Speed Champions Expansion. Simply put only your left or only your right set of tires on a speed ramp.

    Yep. Love when I can figure out combos like this. And one of the races is a circuit event, so you can get halfway to Wednesday's daily challenge too, if you haven't already.

    I'd thought of that, but was able to pull it off on the ramp at Bamburgh Castle with a work in progress tune near the top of A class. It's funny, because I was in the air, upside down, and pretty sure I wasn't going to stick the landing, when I got the notification that it was completed. I mean, I wouldn't have counted it, but the game did, so I'll take it.
