A bit challenging trial, but we got to 2:1 and my Bug won all 3 events (bested even AI Can-am and Polaris)
So trial car B 700 VW Class 5 Baja Bug - tune 137 489 135
D 500 car was Morris Mini-Traveller, tune is from a while back for offroad, but works well here too - tune 113 152 826
S 2 Koenigsegg , I used CCGT with DJS tune
As A 800 Renault Megane I took RS 250, tune 610 753 292

Stunts ... speed zone done with S2 DJS tuned Hoonigan RS200, danger sign and speed trap done with offroad tuned Agera RS.

Edit
Vintage racer ... only one choice here for me ... Naopier-Railton and a custom route at Lake district (just drive straight) - 546 401 510
For Showoff I went to Mudkickers 4x4, set AI to new racer and in just few turns I got it.

Txh

Why do they put Buggy trials in the Playlist? Do they not understand why these are flawed?

Got it won first time as my whole team dropped out by midway through race 2 and I won both races 2 & 3 (didn’t win the first one as I flipped near the start and lost contact with the two leaders who are then uncatchable at Mountain Foot as they phase through all the obstacles without losing speed). Standard team has no chance here so either enter with a good team or hope a few teammates drop out.

My Penhall The Cholla tune does fine against the AI, shame the rest of the team is always terrible..

share code 206 463 625

It took a few attempts as all my team mates were always behind the drivatars. Eventually they all quit after the first race loss (even though I was 1st), so I could win events 2 & 3 on my own!

I used an RZR 1000, came 1st in the first race quite easily, had a team of mixed ability. Also came first in race 2 but much closer. Not saying the RZR is the best, I just bought it randomly as it was cheap. We won without anyone dropping out.

I also used the RZR - a one gear version. Generally find it’s best for any buggy races like this because it’s launch off the start can get you close enough to the leaders to stop them phasing through walls.

Yeah mine was one gear, the top speed was a little low in the 2nd race but it was just enough to keep the AI at bay.

Got it...
Came in 1st in the first race (win).
Last in 2nd race (loss).
Midfield in 3rd, my team was good (win).
Alumni Craft AWD, btw.

Who else has had this happen to them?

In the playground games event, if you beat the other team easily, the game makes you wait a looooong time before the results screen. Often during this time, some players will understandably think the game has crashed, and will force quit the game (or reset their console). But if you wait long enough, it eventually works. This bug has been in the game for many months. (2:57 is where the match finally ends.) And then even though the game knows the entire opposing team has gone, it still makes you load the next race rather than just awarding the win there and then.

So I’ve been trying to unlock Matt Fields corvette for a couple hours now. I don’t have Xbox live so I did every event except for the playground games and the trial and still only have 42%. My friend said at this point he unlocked the car. Why don’t I have 50%?

Had to retry Trial few times but got my tune right. This is for VW Baja Bug Code: 103 562 035

For Renault Rally championship, stock '10 Renault Megane R.S. 250, vs Unbeatable, it's B-class one, did it just fine. Noticed something really curious at Lakehurst Woodland Scramble, Drivatars can't do mud! I was wondering what was wrong with them and it looked like they had severe wheelspinning issue on mud segments. I was racing 7 seconds faster laps than them thanks to that. I didn't check if it works also in normal game event, but might be worth to check out. Easy way to milk all those bonus credits from playing vs. Unbeatable.

Took stock '41 Ford Wagon on Road Racing event, easy wins on Unbeatable. Good choice if you don't mind races taking a while.

Did S2 Street with some tuned Koenig, well, it did the job.

For Weekly #Forzathon, Mercedes! Stock isn't for everyone, but for those who have a thing for old racers, stock is really great experience on summer Colossus and Lakehurst Forest Sprint. Easy Show Off skills at Lake District Sprint.

What IDIOT at PGG decided on B700 Offroad Buggies for the Trial.

Great way to annoy the hell out of people over the Easter Break.

The B700 Offroad Buggies has ALWAYS had problems in that the AI cheat (nothing slows them down) and are OVERPOWERED.

Give yourself a slap on the back PGG (NOT).

BTW - Do not even think you will get near the leading AI in auto, put simply this is a manual event with pure luck at times to win.

Really, really, really disappointed with PGG about this.

Edit: Had Baja Bug in another class (A class). Tuned it out for B and then won. Only Car i think that can do it without too much hassle. I did run it as manual too.

My recommendation for the Trial is the Alumi Craft C10, having tried quite a few others first. I've shared a tune for it. All the cars I tried can do similar times, though I did go a little quicker with the C10. but the thing that set it apart from the others for me was its stability and lack of tendency to get out of control on jump landings. With a wheel, it's really hard to recover if the car gets into a slide, and the C10 was the only car where I made it through 6 races without ever having the car get into a slide and grind to a halt.

The AI does seem like a bit of a lottery, though. I've had races where I did the same lap time around the Ridge, but in one the AI were driving away from me, and in the other I won.
