Definitely this one. Is it even possible to do it without straightening corners?

As for PGG --> did it with AMC Hornet (Bond car) with winter tires. Quite slow, but you can beat everyone at turning.
You can put winter tires also on 79 Camaro and Firebird. But they are much heavier.

Usually I do these hood-cam, this due to the dips and rolls on this one its hard to predict the corners, so I do 3rd person. AWD drift suspension/tires Konessisggsgessig, didn't beat it soundly but got the job done on attempt 3. Helps to watch YouTube masters attack these things sometimes.

What was the target for this? Presumably 100mph (sorry if you are in kmh)? I can do 101mph with relative ease in a standard non corner cutting run. I see you have done 109mph presumably with corner cutting but that’s a good bit more than is needed for the weekly target.

Cheers - so a reasonable amount of time in hand with a well tuned Hoonigan. Sounds like it’s a lot tougher in other options. I have parked up at the side whilst waiting for a Team Adventure and have seen one guy go up and down it repeatedly in a Subaru - hope he’s at least getting closer!

Hoonigan RS200 with DharmaBum Dave S2 998 tune vs winter speed zone
https://youtu.be/YrbO38wRDws

Edit
Just did trial again with Track-Tor and it easily won all 3 races against AI and rest of the players (all actually had tuned cars), even last race, where I got a bit of help and smacked the solid wall at the start.
Track-Tor needs to take corners a bit slower, but just powers trough the rest :)

When it comes to most of these PR Stunt challenges, tune doesn't really matter as long as you can drive. IMO the car choice is essential.

The usual list:

Hoonigan RS200 (clears all dirt Speed Zones, and most Danger Signs)
Hoonicorn (wild card for Drift Zones, including dirt ones, and some Speed Zones)
Mosler MT900S (clears tarmac Speed Zones)
VW I.D. R (clears slow tarmac Speed Zones)
Koenigsegg CCGT (extremely overpowered, clears tarmac Speed Zones and most Speed Traps)
Koenigsegg Agera RS (excellent for Speed Traps)
Rimac Concept Two (king of Speed Traps and tricky Danger Signs, requires skills)
Formula Drift Viper (clears Drift Zones)
Formula Drift Corvette (clears Drift Zones)
Numbered Ford RTR Mustang Drift (clears Drift Zones)

Another week, another round of tunes. I'm still trying to plot my best D-class Van/Ute, so I'm going to hold off on posting single-player championships until I have that all sorted out.

Weekly Challenge:
  • Own and drive any Extreme Offroad vehicle
  • Complete 5 Cross Country Series Events in your Extreme Offroad vehicle

Car Used: Local Motors Rally Fighter
Tune: Kumite - 113 675 257

This is a tune I made for an A-Class Extreme Offroad PPG series a while back, but it works well for this week's Trial, too. Unfortunately, I did need to run the trial more than once (more on that below), but that gave me more than the 5 Cross Country races I needed.

  • Get a 2 star score or better in any Speed Zone

Location: Lakeshore (SW side of Derwent Water, S of the ice drag strip)

I chose this Speed Zone at random, but the results were good. Didn't 3 start it because I smacked a stone wall near the end, but the Rally Fighter did manage to clear 2 stars quite well.

  • Get 10 Ultimate Wreckage Skills in your Extreme Offroad vehicle

Location: SW of Derwent Water

I had planned on doing this in the Rail Yard, which would work, too. All those light poles and fence sections waiting to be hit! But there was more than enough small trees and fences that it took no time at all to get 10 Ultimate Wreckages. I was already to a Great Wreckage when I got the Speed Zone because of that fence, so that made it go all the faster.


  • The Trial Co-Op Championship: "Ice Gauge" | Cross Country | (A800) Extreme Offroad]

Car Used: Local Motors Rally Fighter
Tune: Kumite - 113 675 257

This took me four tries. Partially due to my fault (missed a checkpoint every time on the first race, and managed to roll in an open field on the fourth try), partially due to having pinballs for teammates. That's just something you can't escape when almost nobody on your friends list has the game. It was a nice touch to see the Drivatars act kind of human, with acts such as running into buildings and missing checkpoints... but for the first time ever, I had a Drivatar dive-bomb me out of a checkpoint. Haven't had that yet. While I kept beansing it up on the first race, this car was very capable in the other two, quite often finishing second to either a Drivatar or a teammate. For something meant for a PGG, it works well as real race build.

  • Seasonal Playground Games: Mortimer Gardens | (C600) Classic Muscle

Car Used: 1979 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28
Tune: Milkman - 118 610 802

While I could have put snow tires on, I instead went with AWD and vintage race tires. A mild sacrifice in grip for a bit of a power gain, but this thing still handles well. Naturally it slides on the ice, but it still has enough grip in the snow. Did well except for on some snow-drifty hills, but that's to be expected with its clearance.

Side note: I had something I consider odd happen in my PGG session. We started 6-5 for King, then down to 6-4 for the start of Infected, then by the end of it, it was 6-1 in my team's favor. As soon as Flag loaded up, it was somehow 6-2 again, with a completely new person having popped in at a very bad time. Has this happened to anyone else? I would have taken pics, but I wasn't expecting it.

Add a few of us as friends Gator. Ziperr and Turtle invited me to join them for a trial last night and it was great fun. Other than that I drove straight into a barrier in the first race - the foggy conditions seemed to really disorientate me - we have a nice friendly race at the front with the drivatars quite a long way back.

Idk why but this weeks trial really got me going now and sent me testing different cars ... seriously spent way too much time doing that.
So Track-Tor is by far the fastest, even at only A 752, big problem is the cornering and it tends to bounce around.
After Bowler, Trailcat, Rockstar, Regalia, Toyota, ... I finally found one that I can drive near Track-Tor's times - Jeep Wrangler DD - smooth ride, power and grip.
If anyone wants to try that one too, feel free: 824 909 208

Just finished out this season's challenges. I think I'm getting the hang of this now. lol

The Trial - tweaked a Jeep Trailcat up to A800 228 168 177 It was already near that when I got it, but lowered it some and tightened it up a little. It used to be too springy to be useful, just fun. Now it settles down and flies right. I'm not typically a 1 or 2 finisher in these, but def near the front of the pack. Took 3 tries though, the first was a Battle Royale among the human racers. I had to learn to lay off a little til everyone sorts their stuff out then gain from there. The choke points will kill ya.

Winter Games - ran a Holden Torana but was def not set up right, won anyway. But had the same thing happen that someone mentioned earlier. 6-6 or 6-5 at King, 6-4 at Zombie, went to 6-1 for Flag, but then someone had somehow joined in to make it 6-2. Not sure if it was a new person, or someone that had dropped out from earlier. Either way, prepped up the '73 Firebird traction-style and will try it again to see how it performs.

Iceberg - ran a stock Ford GT40 Mk1. Thought I'd have to swap out the tires, but those meats are plenty thick in the back, so it held well. Took each race easily.

Cold Street - started with a prepped Lotus Exige. Won the first stage by luck, it just did not have enough top end to catch up, but a truck helped in the end. Better lucky than good. Switched over to a 370Z. Put tires, dropped some weight, and put in a race cam for the big difference. Wasn't quick off the line, but it handled well and just chased down and pulled away from everyone.

Cold Storage - prepped a Ford Supersportvan. 128 276 088 I loved this one back in MS6. Have it painted like a Lambo. lol. Easy, smooth, placed first each race.

Danger Sign - This one and Mudkickers gave me the most problems. So I hit it with a Rimac with snow tires just to get it done. Then I wanted to try with trusty old monster Gremlin X. 903 936 311 Took a couple of tries and a few innovative routes but got it. So excited forgot to cap it, lol. So I'll be doing it again tomorrow.

Speed Trap and Zone - again with the old reliable Gremlin 903 936 311 Both were just a few mph under on the first pass, so def wanted to keep the same car. Trap was done on the second try. The Zone was tougher and took a couple of passes, but with a decent run up and just clipping the corners turned in a 108mph

Tuning is still a trick to me. I don't have the patience to truly work out a perfect tune. But I can get in the "good enough" ranges to suit my driving style and go from there. I want to try to eek a little more performance out of the Gremlin so if anyone wants to give it a shot and let me have a little feedback, I'd be appreciative. Thank you

My two go-to cars for the PR stunts (nearly all of them) are the slightly modified Gremlin (I think it's an S2 938) and a Lambo Huracan rally setup. They have handled almost all of them and are just fun to drive. For a few specific ones, I needed to handle on a case-by-case basis. I tend to like it as a bit of a challenge, not to the level of frustration, but just enough to keep it engaging and fun.

* The Rimac for the Roman Mile and Rannoch Shelf. (though I could do the latter with the Gremlin)

* The Aston Martin Vulcan (thanks to <insert name here> for the suggestion) for The Bridge House speed zone

* I purpose tweaked the Mosler for the M68 speed trap but could almost get it with the TVR Cerbera and the Ultima but just not quite.

* A hopped up Meyers Manx to do Mudkicker's Danger Sign. I needed something narrow cuz I kept hitting the stupid pipes (usually the third one, argh!) Might try it with the Polaris.

I have all the Traps and the Danger Signs done. I have 5 Zones that still need a third star. So I have an RS200 so I might take your suggestion on that.

So, a question: my posts need moderator approval, is that just for being new here [Mod Edit - correct, just temporarily - MM]

Took me a minute, but I finally settled on a van for the Cold Storage championship. So now, here's the championships and PR Stunts.

  • PR Stunt: Rannoch Shelf Vista Danger Sign | 574.1 feet

Car Used: Shelby Monaco Cobra
Tune: Stunt Snake - 659 809 395

This build is a bit on the crazy side. It can bite you if you're not careful. But it has insane speed and WILL spin the end around if you're not careful. I have it as a rally/winter build because it's nomially used for dirt Speed Zones and some Danger Signs. The key to this one is back up the mountain a bit, then charge towards the sign. Try to hit it on the right side, otherwise you're going to slam into a house and fail the jump.

  • PR Stunt: Copse Speed Trap | 182.0 mph

Car Used: Koenigsegg CCGT
Tune: Zoner -160 891 674

Not much to say about this tune that I didn't say last week. Just get a run-up, point, and floor it.

  • PR Stunt: Carden Creag Speed Zone | 95.0 mph

Car Used: Jeep Trailcat
Tune: Flatout - 130 018 811

I did try this one with the Shelby, but it was being too cantankerous. So I broke the Trailcat out, approached it from the north end, and was able to get it after a couple tries.

  • Championship: "Tip of the Iceberg" | Road Racing | (A800) Classic Racers

Car Used: Lotus Eleven
Tune: Rocket(W) - 406 204 142

I remember the last time I featured this tune. It was like butter then, and it's still like butter now. Case in point, let me direct you to the screencaps of the times I ran. Not much more to say than I need to make a summer version if possible.

  • Championship: "Getting Cold Street" | Street Scene | (A800) Modern Sports Cars

Car Used: Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG
Tune: HeissStrasse - 151 397 107

Not as much of a masterpiece as my Eleven tune, but this Benz gets the job done on the streets. The fact I could get snow tires on it was a nice touch. May sound odd for a street build, but it means you at least have grip if you're run off the shoulder. Also helps with the slicker parts of the road.

  • Championship: "Cold Storage" | Dirt Racing | (D500) Vans and Utility

Van Used: GMC Vandura
Tune: D-Team - 208 024 158

I have other vans with slightly 'faster' tunes (like the Mini-Traveller from last week), but this was more about finding a balance of grip and power. This van does that. I sacrificed the snow tires for a bit more power, but the vintage race tires still give some good traction. I only had two real problems with this championship. First is even with the grip, this van struggles up the hill on the second race. But it does much better on all other parts of the track. The other one is it seems that Unbeatable Drivatars apparently thing that 'D-Class Vans and Utes' means demo derby. I restarted the second race once because all the Sandmans and Transits blocking the straightaway. It was chaos, and I wish I had taken a screencap...

Hello,

Cars/tunes/suggestions for this weeks seasonal and PR stunts for those that find such useful. All tunes are my own, all shared by myself. ~ tune name / share code. If you use anything offered here, and you like it/it was useful to you, please don't forget to leave a like.

...
I used the Baja for the weekly as well, doing the two star speed zone at this weeks PR speed zone, it will get two start there, I don't think you can get three but is not needed for the weekly challenge.

**Seasonal Playground Games | Mortimer Gardens | (C600) Classic Muscle
**Car used: 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (Autoshow 45,000 Cr)
**Tune: C600 Games Snow / 108 468 240

... Tune is running vintage tires, Forza air on rear (lowest setting, P.I. cheat) and AWD.


Solo championships - Raced against Expert, Steering: Simulation, ABS: on, Traction/Stability; Off, Gearbox: Auto.

**Tune: D500 Dirt CC AWD / 102 928 420

... GMC is very stable, can take most corners in this championship at fairly high (for D class) speeds, very easy to handle on the dirt sections. AWD, Forza rear air (set low, P.I. cheat), rally/snow tires, rally suspension.


**Championship: "Getting Cold Street" | Street Scene | (A800) Modern Sports Cars
**Car used: 2013 Subaru BRZ (Autoshow 32,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 Dirt / 161 754 118

Luck, you will need it if the event plays out (and keeps playing out) like mine, traffic cars always right where I need to be, always on the line I am using. This tune is running snow/rally tires which did help me a lot due to the number of times I had no choice but to drive on the shoulder to pass traffic and A.I. Easy enough while challenging win but for Monument Wynds where yet again the A.I. run the course as if they don't suffer any grip issues - towards the end there is a long sweeping bend to the left, the A.I. here were not only not slowing for the bend, they were accelerating into it (liberal use of rewind and crashing showed me they were accelerating), I don't feel there is a single car in the game with the grip to take this bend (in winter) at speed while accelerating into it. Tune runs snow/rally tires, is RWD, with Rocket Bunny wide-body kit.
I do have a race tires tune for the BRZ, still RWD, it is slower, (race will be somewhat harder I imagine) due to the extra 13! points of P.I. on the tires: A800 Road / 146 727 678 - I did not try the event with this tune, tune here for those that may want such.

**Championship: "Tip of the Iceberg" | Road Racing | (A800) Classic Racers
**Car used: 1951 Porsche #46 356 SL Gmund Coupe
**Tune: A800 Rally Road / 180 857 108

Car is excursive, maybe auction house if you want one and don't have it. Easy easy win, especially at Holywood Circuit. Not much to say - fun to drive, easy to handle, great grip, predictable behavior. Snow tires plus AWD mean hitting the shoulder isn't game over. Tune is AWD, supercharged, Forza air, with snow/rally tires.

I normally use the Mosler for the seasonal PR stunts but I was already in the Ranger T6 for the weekly forzathon so I just did it with that... tuned to A800. It took 3 or 4 tries but wasn't that difficult.

I was surprised to read here that people were having a hard time with it.

Seriously, some people are just absolutely **** at doing the Games.

If you can't do it then don't try.

Nothing more infuriating than seeing someone sitting there doing bugger all whilst i go around doing everything.

4 goes and every time i've been hooked up with useless so and so's.

Edit: Finally got someone who can play, thank you to that person, i appreciate it.
