I got a Tune up for the 65 Mini. Won all 6 races (had to run the trial twice until someone else could pull a top 3) Got off easy this week. Just search my username, Nutbarz.

Starting this series I have a strange glitch for two of the six new cars (Nissan Pulsar and the red Toyota).
Both cars don't have the name over the photo (in series reward section and in Horizon promo list) as in this example [img]https://postimg.cc/jDYT8qQb[/img]
Has someone the same glitch?

This is probably a bug that is occurring in some language settings other than English.
I'm playing FH4 with Japanese language settings, and I'm experiencing a similar bug.

The championships were quite fun this week. I will admit two of my builds look silly and the third looks ludicrous. But they all work, and that's what matters.

  • Championship: "Classic Rally Rumble" | Dirt Racing | (D500) Classic Rally

Car Used: 1964 Mini Cooper
Tune: Bean(us) - 152 476 492

This was not my initial attempt. That was with a RWD Escort RS1800. It did good on the first race, but it had NO grip on the second race and could barely muster an 8th. Realizing that the car wasn't going to work in D-class, I looked to see what the AI was kicking my rear with. It was a Fulvia. So I went with second place, which was a Mini. Surprisingly, it's rather stable with a rally lights, a wide-body kit and max width rear tires. It doesn't seem to affect the steering of it too much, either.

  • Championship: "Out for the Count" | Cross Country | (A800) Blueprint Theme: Heavy Hitters

Truck Used: 2017 Ford F150 Raptor
Tune: Eagles! - 325 475 762
(Bonus!) Paint Job: 'Murica! - 873 360 397

I was tempted to do this with one of my Bentleys, but I can never make a good off-roader with them. I had done the paint job long ago and never shared it, so I decided to make a tune to match. Truck's got 10 gears, but it only uses six before it won't go any more. Corners great, good off the line, and good mid-range acceleration.

  • Championship: "What's the Word on the Street?" | Street Scene | (B700) Country: Japan

Car Used: 1993 Nissan 240SX SE
Tune: Overnight - 821346 404

While I had my choice of good JDM cars, something pulled me to the 240. Again I threw on a body kit and thicc rears. Drives very good through the turns and definitely has the speed to keep up.

On the bonus side for myself, this week marked me having enough tunes to make Level 5 for the Star Card. Now I just need to focus on Blueprints, Paint Jobs, and Photos.

I am somewhat amused at all these posts claiming the Mini or Arbath as "leaving the Barchetta's" for dust.

Have done quite a few Trials and with the odd loss of the first race (only a couple) i have won first place in the Barchetta quite easily, leaving the Arbath and Mini for peanuts.

On long straights and tight corners along with uphill climbs the Arbath and Mini lack considerable power. The Barchetta easily does it without losing speed.

The Lotus is nice for this Trial but lacks top speed against the Barchetta, it too should easily beat the Mini and Arbath.

Maybe the Mini is an easy go to car along with the Arbath but they are not the "best" car for the trial by a long shot.

I have noticed that you can get a nice speed out of the Mini and Arbath but you have to forgive stability/handling to do it and that makes the cars undrivable on tracks with variable corners (especially for those not that adept at driving).

Going to stick with the Barchetta being the most able and capable car in this Trial.

Gator, I was determined to race my Bentley 8-Liter just cuz. Had to fool around with the weight settings because I kept making it too light and it wouldn't let me select it for the run.

I found that it had to be over 4500 lbs running weight. So I finished with a 4502-lb 865hp 737 ft-lb champion. Finished just over 2 mins on the sprints but did world's better on the railyard circuit than my Hummer. Don't run it so much as an off-roader but run it like a rally car. Omg, so much fun.

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.

Give it a shot, it's fun. Or just ask and I'll tell you how I modified it and you can tune it up yourself. Speaking of, so how many tunes does it take to get to Rank 5? I keep tuning my stuff but I don't save most of them unless they really stand out.

I had the opposite experience. I found the top speed of the abarth insurmountable. I was able to win race 2 easily because of the handling but got 2nd or 3rd in the other two because the abarth blasted by on the straights.

Must admit i did have that happen but i usually made the time back through the corners. Found that if i got at least a car length on them exiting the corner then i could hold off till the next corner.

The Arbath does have some serious acceleration i admit but usually coming with a cost in handling.

Been a couple of drivers now that have some pretty good skills handling those 2 car types on corners, don't know how they manage to hold it together but they do. Thumbs up to them :)

I have only run the Trial twice so far. I've been having too much fun tuning up Behemoths for the Heavy Hitters challenge...lol.

But both times were against near-complete fields of Barchettas. As I do not own one yet, I did not tune one. I think there was a lot of confusion as to what cars you can run (thank you again ManteoMax for the list) so that led to so many Barchettas being run...and if rented, very little tuning/modding. So yeah, ran away from the "Rush of Barchettas". So far, only one Barchetta was able to keep pace at the front, someone obviously tuned it to compete.

The problem with the Mini is you can either boost the engine or the tires but not both...or at least I could not find a way. So I bumped up the engine, then put on the widest tires, kicked out the wheels, and made whatever compensations I could make. Then I lightened up the brake response so it would be less efficient. This allows me to feather the brake going into the turns so as not to skid everything out of control. It's quick, it's got good top end, but you have to slide through all but the hard turns. It's fun, it's effective, but by no means is a novice car to drive.

Speaking of, I tuned up an Isetta as well. This one is particularly tricky. I am still tweaking it but have run it solo against Highly Skilled and Expert but not up to Pro or Unbeatable yet. I am determined, though. However, not so much to try to run a Reliant...lol.

So you are most likely correct, there are def more stable and better platforms to run, but the Mini is fun and challenging for sure.

Also went with wanting to do a Bentley 8 litre once I saw it in the list, mostly to see if it could even work as a cross country car. I was a little slow on getting back to it, but have a tune now.

My first attempt I had the same issue as 'IngoingCake8592' in that I forgot that "Heavy Hitters" goes by final tuned weight, not starting weight, opposite to I think it is "Reasonably Priced" where only starting price matters, not the end result. So first build was too light (I wonder if this means there is some cars not on the list that could be tuned into "Heavy Hitters" by making them heavier?).

I really wish you could make the this Bentley stay as 8 litres and get it to the top of A class, but alas not possible, the best you can do to get close to 8L is the V12 with max displacement at 7L, this is not what I used however. My original 'turns out it was too light' build used the inline 6 (like the sound), however in making it heavier the 6 missed the full A800 mark, in the end I used the 6.2L V8.

Was not happy with how it handled, yes it could win the seasonal Heavy Hitter event (Pro difficulty (I am not great at Unbeatable, making it hard to judge if problems are me or tune), Steering: Simulation, ABS: on, Traction/Stability; Off, Gearbox: Auto) and was amazing good at the railyard track (the track I felt it would struggle with) - car/tune is weight biased towards the front as might be expected, yet driving it was too tail friendly on corners - skinny tires plus grass, even if rally tires is my guess as to the main reason why (did not have the same issue at the railyard). Back to adjustments, decided to experiment with making a AWD - FWD style tune which I feel works great, far easier to control, will still swing into corners yet can be pulled back into line quickly. Ran all event tracks on Pro, no issue winning, again really good at the railyard (grass and skinny tires still make the car problematic for cross country). Acts a lot like a FWD, very much tends to go where the front wheels are pointed.

Unbeatable at the railyard should be possible, I can not manage it however (at 3 laps) run out of time catching the 2 front runners, more practice may get me there, currently my skill is a little below what is needed.

This car has a trick, really great at J-turns.

Tune: 6.2L V8, AWD, rally ties/suspension, no aero. A800 CC Rally (540 392 799).

Enjoy.

I made 3 tuning options for Abarth 595 (SPEED, ACCELERATION and DEFAULT) and use the brakes in advance for curves

The Trial Co-Op: Fun-Sized
Code Tune ABARTH 595 ESSEESE 1968:...... 615 040 276 (SPEED) or 110 376 026 (ACCELERATION) or 862 972 869 (DEFAULT)

Share Codes: Pause Menu, Event Activations, or Creative Hub. You can use this code to get to a specific Event Blueprint quickly, and easily.
Share Code: Garage -> Designs & Paints -> Find New Designs -> Search
Share Code: Garage -> Upgrades & Tunes -> Find -> Search

Ps.: The other tunings are on page 2

Bikemaniac,

If you go into Horizon Life, one of the lower left tabs says "Stats". Click on that and it brings you to a series of tabs with all your performance stats. Forget which tab it is, but the Total Miles Driven stat is near the top so you should see it just by clicking across.

You can also check your Star Card progress, one of the first two lists your mileage as well, since one of the goals is 5000 miles.
