Happy New Year! :)

I've been quite busy and also in the middle of building a new rig - graphics card should arrive tomorrow. I had bought play anywhere, so I'm excited to move over to PC. Loading times are brutal on original Xbox One. More than double the FPS should be helpful as well.

Anyway - I can't drive Wrangler or Scout, both need clutch to shift quickly from what I sampled. I can accelerate fine with clutch, but not any faster overall due to braking habits. I may commit to learning it properly in a new game (FH5)? For now I think I'll just stay in my groove.

If I'm up and running this weekend I'll give a few more cars I'm curious about a go before the weekend is out. I know I can drop another second in the BRZ, and I'd like to try and break 3:00 in the Fiesta.

@RB033 - I've been enjoying your Fiesta; had some very successful online runs with it. 👍🏼
Every train needs a caboose, right?

Glad to hear - V2 or V3? I've had one online session using V3 against 2 ok Daytona drivers. It was gassing out in 5th gear, so I think I got second a couple times, but won the whole. Nice performance from a tin-can!

I think it was the V3. I seem to recall something about 4th or 5th gear as well, though minor; didn't keep me from crushing it, which I don't normally do. 😄

Still TDU’s tune and no shortcuts. Just cut out most of the sliding around and got MK pretty clean.

For this week, I’m proposing a return to Fortune Island to do the Island Lowland Super Sprint “rivals challenge”, which is S1 in winter.

Bree is already very high up the LB so he might struggle to improve but it’s tough to find slightly different events without having someone already on the board at this point.

I’m not going to ban any cars, although suggest people try other options before the Bugatti and Ford GT!

Just found this thread and figured I'd join in. I haven't grinded too many of the Rivals events, so I thought it would be a good challenge. I started out with the Mustang DD and after 4 or 5 attempts posted a 1:47.2xx. I switched to the '92 NSX-R to try and gain some time accelerating out of the sharp turns and managed to get down to 1:46.139. I find the Mustang DD more stable on Fortune Island's ridiculously slippery roads (it would be my choice in matchmaking, if that were possible) but the NSX-R is faster if kept under control. I consistently lose time on the downhill right turn at 25%, so I can probably gain another 0.1-0.2 if I can figure out how to tidy that up, but there's not a lot left.

The Mustang DD is strong here, I can't beat it with an NSX or Ford GT. Could probably do a top 10 time in the right hands.

I'm using TDU's tune 'Top5 S1 Dirt Car' which is just what I had on there already.

Understatement of 2021 thus far. I'm sad about all the time I've wasted on loading screens and choppy mishaps. Being more consistent in Rivals is already easier. I was able to best my Moorhead times by significant chunks in fewer tries... and restarts are quick now.

Looking forward to the new challenge, thanks Jezza :)

Nice RB - will be curious to see how much quicker you are on PC. I see Ang3l made some big improvements on both A and B as well - I’ll post final leaderboards for last week tonight 👍.

Tidied up the right hander at 25% and the right hander onto the speedy stretch. Punching way above my weight class on this one so far.

Quick question: will rally/winter tires be better on this track of race even if there is no real snow on the tarmac?

Dirt tyres are usually better in wet conditions - which is effectively what this course is.

1.44.8 in the ATS is using Scaans’ tune.

Just bought an ATS to try it. I looked in the auction house and there was just one there, at 94k credits. Out of curiosity I tried relisting it for sale and the max price you can set is only 94k. No wonder there aren't many for sale... Forza's dumb auction pricing system.

(I can't keep up with my Mustang ghost in the ATS using either of scaans' tunes - looks like you used the more powerful version but neither work for me. I've never got good performances out of this car for some reason.)

Going to try ATS. Countach can do at least 1.45.3 (dirty run, fixing mistakes of a clean 1.45.5). Haven't posted tune yet, want to tweak some more. It is understeery and unforgiving.
