Just completed the Trial with a Lotus Elan & AudibleJam509 Tune, I won all three races with Barchetta's all following me, well daylight followed me then the Barchetta's. A very easy car to drive.

What parts? It looks complete to me, albeit with a VERY shiny back plate on the muffler.


I thought the muffler was missing parts because its back plate inside looked like the autoshow floor.

Celica muffler

The outside is all there, so I was definitely wrong on the missing parts. Now that I checked again, it really looks like a texture issue related to shine.

The Porsche 718 RS starts in A800 (with 718-ish PI), so ineligible, right? Curious that they included it with this list; everything else starts in D500. The Mini Cooper, Abarth 595 '68, and Lotus Elan all do well, though judging from all the weak AI Ferarri Barchettas and human players too lazy or too new to do anything other than rent a stock Barchetta, I'd wager almost any of these cars will perform well against stupid, lazy, and new if a sensible tune is applied to one of them. This should be a piece of cake AND a walk in the park for most players...

Just for information.
Starting from this series, there are additional rewards to the season 50% and 80% completion, not only the car but also a wheelspin (50%) and a superwheelspin (80%).
Max, please update the first page.

On any other week I would agree with you on that part. But not this week. There is no "car type" called "micro-mayhem" and when you click on "view eligible cars" there is only Ferrari. Which possibly not everyone have and don't want to buy it.
On the rest I agree - this week trial is easy. If you know what you are doing and you use manual with clutch, even that stock Ferrari should be good. I was beating other players and AI in C600 cars.
Suprisingly it was accelerating faster than C600 Ferrari.

Like Max said in his post with the list, micro mayhem is an event theme; you can view it when creating a blueprint. As far as the car selection goes, if you are already in a one of the cars on that list with a C600 tune (except the A800 Porsche as it's overclass), your equipped car will appear on the car selection screen along with the ferarri. That's exactly what I did the 3 times I've run it using the Mini, the Lotus, and the Abarth (and I swear one of those times, I think with the Lotus, another car appeared selectable with the ferarri as well...a weird thing, regardless!). And sure, that ferarri may be pricy to buy and easy to rent, but who doesn't already have at least the Mini? Slapping any sensible C600 tune on it shouldn't be cost/credit prohibitive for most players; just have it equipped when the timer expires and they'll be good to go.

Most players just aren't going to know all this, though? I've played the game quite a lot and had to ask on here, I had no idea what was going on with car eligibility.

I did have one other player in this one who brought a 600 tuned car, but sadly it was still very slow.

But "micro-mayhem" works only when you create blueprint, right? It is not car type, so you can't search for it in "my cars".
Most of my cars are tuned for B700 or higher. I only have something tuned for lower classes if there is a need for it. Now I have 4 cars tuned for this trial and they pop up in selection screen no problem.
For me it is bad design - it should just show all cars eligible. And it is not first time that "show eligible cars" is not showing all cars, but it is first time that it was that bad.

Been playing some more around wit trial cars, along with already tuned Ferrari and Lotus, did also try, Austin Sprite and Mini, both work well too.
Special challenge is Peel, where P50 is totally useless, so Trident is what you want. Bit hard to drive if you bump something, but otherwise ... fast.
So Trident tune if anyone wants to try it - 270 978 439

Oh, I totally understand and I wasn't trying to sass anyone. The 'lazy' reference was more about some of my decently-prestiged teammates slumming it in the back, not making any effort, not even to block. And I don't really 'know' for certain either, trial car selection often seems a bit nebulous to me as it is (why do we have to figure this out ourselves, you shouldn't have needed to ask to begin with, right?) and honestly I half expected to be told I'm mistaken; I just posted going off what I experienced first-hand to maybe save someone else the trouble. There was only one other player in those three races that didnt rent the ferarri; it was a Mini and he was a little faster on the circuits, a little slower on the sprint...though on the sprint a rental player surged and caught right up at the end, to ziperPL's point.

And like someone else commented, I also noticed a considerable reduction of inter-team ramming (though on the first circuit during the first trial, this one clown up ahead of me going into lap 3 apparently noticed he was going to get lapped, and went clear off course toward the center of the circuit and waited for me to approach that first hard turn and come to a near stop...and darted right for me trying to ram but the poor fool ghosted and missed...pathetic).

Yup, yup ...you are correct. It is indeed a bad design. We shouldn't even be discussing any of this, how to have a race-eligible car display for selection; breen shouldn't have needed to inquire. It's one thing to release half-cooked features with poor execution, but leaving it to players to figure out what they can even use to participate in the first place is a whole nother kettle of fish.

I was hoping that was the case because I've been trying to get the 2017 Alpine, but it's not worth 5 million+ to me. Seeing as it hasn't been changed, I'm guessing it was intentional for the 1973 A110 to be there (it shouldn't though).

On a side note, I got a wheelspin for 50% completion and a super wheelspin for 80% on the season. Is this something new? I don't remember ever getting either of those season completion percentage.

Edit: I see in the first post now that wheelspins are a new extra reward.

These lists are what needs to show up in the game when you go to the even to see what the eligible cars are. If it shows no eligible cars, you might be left with randomly picking cars you think might be eligible, removing their tune and seeing if they are eligible, and you can't even find out if the car you picked is eligible until the count down timer finishes for the event start. Not a fast process....

I'm normally not this fast on the draw with the Trial, but I had a bit of insomnia. But with all that, I've got the Trial, PGG, Weekly, and the Stunts. Enjoy!

Weekly Challenge:
  • Own and drive any Rally Monster car
  • Earn 20 Ultimate Drift or E-Drift Skills in your Rally Monster

Car Used: `17 M-Sport Fiesta
Tune: Snowplow - 911 879 587

I only picked this car as it was the first Rally Monster that had a tune on it. Feel free to pick any Rally Monster. For the Drifts, I decided to take my car to the airstrip and just hoon it on the grass and the drag strip until I got my 20.

  • Earn a total of 15 stars from Speed Zones in your Rally Monster

One downside to this tune is it's an S1 and only has a top speed of 170 or so. What I did was went to the Croft Speed Zone (same one as the weekly) entering from the south, then going west and south down to the Bridlewood Speed Zone (just west of Croft). Just did that loop until I got enough starts.

  • Win 3 Dirt Racing Series events in your Rally Monster

Courses Used:
Lighthouse Rush - 123 381 778
Broadway Dirt Drags - 132 053 628
Festival Flingings - 429 309 919

The first track on this list is at the Goliath starting point is the same as one I previously made, just set for Anything Goes. Just follow the road and go for the lighthouse. Second one is at the usual Broadway dirt spot. Again it's a simple follow-the-road and ignore the AI's path. The third one is at the Cotswolds Road Rally spot, but goes through the Festival. This one's a little trickier, as after the AI zigs right, they might come back and T-Bone you at the next intersection.

SEASONAL EVENTS
  • The Trial Co-Op Championship: "Fun-Sized" | Road Racing | (C600) Blueprint Theme: Micro-Mayhem

Car Used: Lotus Elan
Tune: Simplify - 103 781 786

I had intended on trying to build an Isetta for the lulz, but I could not get it to tune to C-class with either the base engine or replacement engines (it seemed to skip from D to B or A.) Instead, I went with the Elan. Once I started this Trial and saw the Drivatars' Rush of Barchettas (yes, that should be the proper term for a group of Barchettas), I was worried I picked the wrong car. It was a bit difficult on Wind Farm Circuit, as it didn't have quite the oomph going up the steeper hills. Got sixth on that first one, but I got solid seconds on the other courses and my team swept.

  • Seasonal Playground Games: Bamburgh Castle | (B700) Hot Hatch

Car Used: 2003 Volkswagen Golf R32
Tune: Kreigswagen - 156 365 224

I went with the R32 because it's a Hot Hatch I'd not used yet and it started with AWD. Was able to throw on the dirt/rally goods, tune it up a bit, and it seemed to carve through the dunes at Bamburgh Castle beach just fine.

  • PR Stunt: The Great Ridge Danger Sign | 915.4 feet

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

I usually have issues getting the jump lined up just so on this one, but I was able to get it perfect on the first go this time.

  • PR Stunt: Wesloch Speed Trap | 140.0 mph

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

I was tempted to throw my King Cobra at this one, but decided to do the CCGT first. Came in from the Northeast and just floored it. Definitely crushed the required 140.

  • PR Stunt: Croft Speed Zone | 110.0 mph

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

After taking one look at Croft, I knew my King Cobra was going to be too squirrley to do this. So I grabbed my Trailcat again and got a running start from south, a little past the farm at the intersection. took a couple tries, but once I got the rhythm of the corners right, it just clicked.

Now, back to the mines to do the Championships. And after the Monthly Rivals, I can't wait until next week to see what I can do with the Puma.

Nitro Glitter has a page at Forza Support listing Car Types and Themes:

https://support.forzamotorsport....633-Car-Types-and-Themes

The Themes part is written By ManteoMax e.g.

Barn Finds
Reasonably Priced Cars - cars valued 25,000 CR or less
Forza Favorites - game box cover cars from the Forza game history
Collector's Series - rare and collectible models
World's Fastest Cars - historic and modern record holders
Evo vs Impreza Race Off
Heavy Hitters - cars weighing over 4,400 lbs
AMG vs M Sport Race Off
High Rollers - cars valued 1+ million credits
Tuner's Choice - European and JDM favorites among tuners
Ferrari vs Lamborghini Race Off
Ford vs Holden Race Off
Iconic Movie Cars - James Bond, Dukes of Hazard, etc
Homologation Heroes - race bred cars for the street

It must be difficult trying to come up with different challenges each week and of course from ManteoMax's Spreadsheet it's fairly easy for players to compile their own lists based upon certain criteria.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsh...DxY9c/edit#gid=286219065

Some of the themes may require a bit of extra research e.g. Iconic Movie cars - Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, John Wick, Fast & Furious, Gone in Sixty Seconds etc.

I enjoyed this week's challenges...and since I love making ungainly beasts into race vehicles, I was especially happy with seeing the "Out for the Count" challenge with Heavy Hitters.

Thank you ManteoMax for posting the list of cars...however, after gearing up and tricking out a Bentley 8-Liter, I was sad to see that the event would not let me run it.

Weekly Challenge: - 1985 Ford RS200 Evo. For the Ultimate Drift challenge, I took it to the fields outside of Fairlawn Manor and just racked them up in short time. Plenty of room for long sweeping drifts.

PR Stunt Speed Trap and Danger Sign - 1973 AMC Gremlin X Tune: 903 936 311
"Old Faithful" did it again. I first came at the trap from the South but didn't line it up right, turned it around and flew through it from the North. For the Danger Sign, this one is tricky. So many bumps to unsettle your car on approach. I cheat toward the left side of the trail going up, then just near the top square up and hit the jump.

PR Stunt Speed Zone - 1985 Ford RS200 Evo. For this one, I start from the North, with a little room to get to speed. Go through the bends first, then straighten it out and head towards the farm. Came in about 4mph over.

The Trial - "Fun-Sized" - 1965 Mini Cooper S. Tune: 641 831 045 Livery: 391 759 428
I chose the Mini partially just because I have a neat livery for it...lol. Tuned it up fast but a little slippery. Faced another "Rush of Barchettas" (thank you Gator). Easily stormed the front. My only competition was an Abarth 595 Esseesse that was slightly faster and a whole lot more slippery than me. I kept in second mostly to not get collected in an accident but would take the lead through a bad corner or three. Other than that, beat the Barchettas pretty easily. Might see if I can get it a little grippier at the expense of some speed. I also want to try to set up an Isetta just for fun.

Playground Games - 2003 Golf R32. Still had this tuned up from the other week, so why not. AWD, upgraded tires and not much else. Maneuvered well enough, could avoid pursuers but had a tough time reeling in opponents. I might try to squeeze in some rally shocks as it was rough keeping an even pace over the terrain.

Rally Rumble D500 - 1973 Ford RS1600. Tweaked it a little, Felt under-performing but it is D500 after all. The circuit race was the toughest for me, kept things close, and didn't get into the lead til halfway through the second lap. For the two sprints, it may not have picked up right away but it had good legs and was able to chase down and easily pass the leaders.

Word on the Street - 2016 Mazda MX-5 / 1969 Nissan Fairlady Z 432 Tune: 417 147 865 - Nissan
Ran the Mazda for the first race. It had better numbers but took til near the end to get in the lead. Ran the Nissan for the last two. Way more grip than needed, but it suited the courses just fine. Beat everyone on the turns, then pulled away. I might try to optimize it to get a little more speed by giving up some grip. We'll see.

Out for the Count - 2006 Hummer H1 Alpha. Tune: 160 805 923 Livery: 655 848 160
2016 Jeep Trailcat Tune: 228 168 177

This might get long-winded...so tune out now, lol. As with the Mini, I ran the Hummer because I love the livery (Queen of Hearts) but I also just wanted to see what this beast could do. Wasn't quick, but got under way, held its own, and got to the front of the pack pretty readily. Once it hit the fields, it was able to take the lead and hold it til the end. Need to take turns a little wide so you can keep the RPM up or you will slide out til next Wednesday. Ran it a few times, then I noticed that the Trailcat was also allowable. It wasn't even fair. The Trailcat devoured the course. Took the two sprints in under 2 minutes each. The railyard circuit took a few seconds longer but still took first easily. I have a prepped Bentley 8-Liter all set up and waiting, but sadly, it is apparently not allowed. Might run the course on its own just to see how it does. I also prepped up a Nissan Titan Warrior Concept. Haven't run it yet, but it has the best numbers of all of them. This is probably the one, aside from the Trailcat, that will do the best. And man alive, I want to try the Iron Knight...but it's so close to the limit already, there's little room for tweaking. But still, just to do it. Did I tell you I like running ungainly beasts? lol


Edit: My Bentley was too light!! I had removed too much weight from it so it no longer qualified. After messing around, I found that it had to be over 4500 lbs running weight. I made a few adjustments, eased off one level of body weight reduction and changed the turbo for a supercharger...same HP but it weighed more. And I finished with a 4502-lb 865hp 737 ft-lb champion. Not quite as fast as the Trailcat, finished just over 2 mins on the sprints but did world's better on the railyard circuit than the Hummer. Don't run it so much as an off-roader but run it like a rally car. Omg, so much fun. So now I'm happy...off to the Iron Knight...lol

1931 Bentley 8-Liter A800 Tune: 124 263 366 Rally O'Bentley - it's geared really low, might ease it up a little to try to put in a faster run.

Oh, Gator...I did up an Isetta. It comes in at C597. You can do a tire upgrade OR an engine upgrade but not both, shoots it to B-level instantly. Even doing the tire upgrades first doesn't budge the rating from D100 til you start adding engine improvements. It's odd. It's AWD, supercharged (+8hp lol), with the thickest race tires you can put on. I'm still tooling around with the set-up but I could take first in Moorland at Expert level. Haven't run it higher than that yet...it's squirrely as all get-out. lol

Heh, thanks man! Yeah, that turned out well. I destroyed everyone in the trial with that tune. Only issue was the second race when a drivatar invisible force field sent me flying 500 ft off the track. Lol.
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

Hi all,,

Cars/tunes/suggestions for this weeks seasonal events for those that find such useful. All tunes are my own, shared. ~ 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.

**Car used: 1971 Lotus Elan Sprint (Autoshow 57,000 Cr)
**Tune: C600 Street AWD / 180 421 988

... Tune can/will beat unbeatable A.I. both on and offline, car/tune was able to beat cars I faced by players, including tuned cars - the stock Ferrari is not a match at all (based on those I encountered) , tune is plenty fast for the trial, I did note that the Porsche could be faster depending on driver and tune. Tune is optimized towards grip, high/er speed cornering, AWD, street tires, rear Forza air (tuned down).

**Seasonal Playground Games | Bamburgh Castle | (B700) Hot Hatch
**Car used: 2009 Vauxhall Corsa VXR (HTF)
**Tune: B700 Games Sand / 122 058 572

Great car in the sand, good balance, has grip, quick acceleration ... Tune, FWD, rally tires, rear Forza air (P.I. cheat).

PR stunts:
- Croft Speed Zone, 1978 Hoonigan Ford Escort RS1800 - 'S900 Rally Trial' (680 307 281) - ...,
- Wesloch Speed Trap, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544) ~ ...,
- The Great Ridge Danger Sign, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544) ~ ....


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

**Championship: "What's the Word on the Street?" | Street Scene | (B700) Country: Japan
**Car used: 1974 Honda Civic RS (Car Pass - Autoshow 25,000 Cr)
**Tune: B700 Road / 810 591 382

Easy enough win, lacks top end speed, so first race is hardest of the three, the other two are easy, get in front, out corner the A.I., win. Car can be twitchy in the rear if you swerve sharply, or turn the car in one direction to another too quickly, otherwise a very stable and easy to drive high speed cornering machine Tune is AWD, race tires, Forza rear air, wide-body.

**Championship: "Out for the Count" | Cross Country | (A800) Heavy Hitters
**Car used: 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor (Autoshow 63,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 CC Offroad / 138 009 364

Provided the A.I. don't do there cross country misbehaving thing (one million grip) car/tune will easily match and beat the A.I. Car/tune turns wide, keep this in mind. Tune is engine swapped for 5.8L V8 DSC with twin turbo, offroad tires.

**Championship: "Classic Rally Rumble" | Dirt Racing | (D500) Classic Rally
**Car used: 1973 Ford Escort RS1600 (Autoshow 73,000 Cr)
**Tune: D500 Road Rally / 948 043 878

Not many options to choose from to build a D class in this event, the Mini is too obvious a choice, so something different that I am aware drives very well, the 73 Escort. This is a very near stock build for those liking such, it is not 100% stock however, suspension just anti-roll, upgraded brakes, no engine upgrade beyond lightened flywheel, no aero, vintage tires, build is lighter than Forza stock, handles better, faster in speed, acceleration and launch. Fun drive.

Enjoy.
