@Ziperr, Rocklxd's tune, he's got a few up but I think it's called Ranked CC V1.41.

I ran a dirty (1 rewind) identical time with the RAM Powerwagon on the Lego track the other night too, so that could be worth looking into. I think it was TDU1's tune but I don't remember for sure.

What X Class tune are you using, Jezza?

Flipped to Rocklxd's M/C test tune and broke into the 1:44s. Handles worse since it doesn't have offroad tires but the weight savings make for quicker acceleration, which I really notice on the finishing stretch through all the fences.

I hate cross country in general, it just seems so rng if you bounce or land right. feels like little control. I do not mind it in rally but with ramps ugh hate it.

Hi all,

It sure is great to see this thread still going. I’ve been following it for awhile. Don’t have a lot of time to play these days but every once and awhile I try a track you’re on.

I actually use Whitewater CC as a test track for off road vehicles and their rolling potential. I have an anything goes blueprint in summer I use all the time.

FYI, the Jaguar I-pace turned out to be a bit of a CC beast for me. Due to the fact most CC races don’t require a lot of top speed, it fit right in.

I did a careless one and done run on A whitewater CC with the i-pace and still ended up #202 with a 1:54.xxx. I’m certainly not as fast as i used to be but could probably cut more time off. I’m sure it would be faster in faster hands.

I have the tune up: 181 015 854. It’s not been fined tuned yet so a word of warning. A bit of a rush build TBH. Break pressure is set high, FYI.

I might join you guys one day. I’m always trying to find ways to not get bored with this game....but it’s getting harder. 😂☺️
I buy, upgrade and tune cars to the max. That's what I live for in Forza. I'm always in the need for more cars. Check out my custom routes in Horizon 4! https://forums.forzamoto...routes.aspx#post_1133141

I am somehow stuck at 1:48 in Whitewater Falls. I got no clue how I should shake of another 4 or even 5 seconds to the best times. If I would use manual shifting with a steeringwheel, maybe I could shake of one second, but 4 or 5? Never. Ever.

Hi Jam. Nice post and good to see you. Do drop in whenever you have time 👍. I’ll have a go with the I Pace tomorrow.

I think I’m probably done on Whitewater. Have done 43.1 in the X Class. It’s capable of dipping under 43 but the RNG pain to get there isn’t worth it for me - I don’t think it can catch the two leaders. Might have a few more tries in the Hummer but PlatMod’s tune doesn’t suit me - I find it way too easy to oversteer and lose lots of time.

I’ll head over to Lego and try some non X Class options there.

Oh, and definitely back to tarmac next week 😂!

I just shared a new Hummer tune (125 468 062) which my current ghost is using. It is based on TDU1PlatinumMod's setup so you may still find it too oversteery, but I attempted to tune it to this track specifically -- softer springs for the ramp into the quarry, and I tried to set the final drive to have the ideal top of 4th gear for the sweeping turn before the water section.

Oh for heavens sake. Well I greatly appreciate this round. We rarely dipped into xc, not complaining as I always need the practice on the tarmac, but it's nice to face something once in a while where I'm not necessarily default caboose. 😄 And I guess this will likely be the last xc, so, thx again.

Oh, well yes; add to the list I suppose. Of all the over-exposed metamobiles, this one I find less irritating...probably because it's so 'normal.' Would've made a touch more sense if it's powers were more lower class-focused.

Witty Joey’s tune for the Hummer is easier to drive for me than PlatMod’s - ran 1.43.0 where I hit the last tree (had to rewind -hate that last corner). Also improved a bit with it at Lego.

Managed to squeeze out a 1:45.3 with still some errors in Whitewater, I think I'll leave it there for now.
First time I hit the 1:45.X mark the run got "dirtied" while driving through the first narrow water passage. Still don't know why. Once had a 1:46.X run where I hit the tree after the wide uphill right corner after the second water passage (wow I hate this corner SO much) where you drive up to the house on the hill after that, I even heard the bump, but the run did not get "dirtied" - the game is strange sometimes.

Pretty remarkable. And some pretty significant errors to just pop out a number #9 like that. Seems almost magical.

Well, I did 10 hours on this track today. How many yesterday I dont know. The tuning jezza recommended helped me a lot.
I felt doing some little errors but I guess it still was fast and I did not loose lots of speed... Is there a way to view my run in a replay function or do I have to drive against my own ghost for this?
But I think I have seen enough of this track for some time.

#9 is of course my only Top10 Rank ever, but I do not know how much it is "worth" on this course because not so many ppl are driving it. But I am very proud of it now :)

Now I tried Lego a little bit with the Hummer and the Tune from WittyJoey, but that thing has almost no grip, and the hummer is so broad and big I cant see the road ahead lol

Oh, it's incredible for sure. Just one day ago you "struggled always to get Top 1% or Top 1000 no matter which car class," and now here you are already a #9, just like that. It really is amazing.

Unbelievable, even.

Well, the tracks I played until I started with this rivals here in the forums are the Horizon Festival Track (every car class) and Greendale Club Track, a lot more racers there so harder to get 1% or Top1000 it seems.

And I hope you do not imply here that I do some foul things.
