I've got a bit bored with timing out my teammates in the Trial, so tried a new concept - handicap tunes. I've shared 2 tunes of the '16 MX-5:

"Trial Handicap 1" is 680 PI
"Trial Handicap 2" is 660 PI

With the 680 PI tune, only one teammate brought a 700 PI car, and I easily won all 3 races.

With the 660 PI tune, every other teammate brought a 700 PI car, and I got 2 x 1st and 1 x 2nd. I definitely got some more competitive racing in places than I would have done with a 700 PI tune.

With the 660 PI tune I tried the rivals for race 3, and was still able to do a top 3% time with it, so it's not THAT much of a handicap.

I completely understand the reason for the delay but they might have made the substitute prizes a bit more attractive. 1 wheelspin for season 50% and a pitiful amount of credits for the events. Sorry guys, but 90k is not an incentive to put up with the Playground games

For me good enough of a handicap are just random teammates
I had 3 that were keeping last 3 places firmly secured (in tuned cars), luckily one quit, but 2 that remained, were determined to keep us secured till the end ...

Had an interesting 9 vs 3 in the trial last night, won all three races with my team mates coming mid-pack and dead last leading to some close calls on the final scores, but ended up 2-1. I can only assume not as many people are playing, just holding out to see how the season gets fixed.

They could at least have put better items like premium, Ford Capri FE example and exclusive items, always the same things


Ford Capris FE is a reward for completing star card

this community is always gimme gimme gimme or i want compo
when did we get so entitled


Because 25% of the car list has an asterisk next to it.

I certainly bled my hands doing the seasonals. Too advanced for my skills.
May the forced induction be with you.

No-one else has mentioned the Online level reward showing incomplete when completed so am assuming it is just me. Oh well.

Found this week's events somewhat tricky at times, although completable. The Trial I chose the wrong tune for the car but we still won thanks to someone with a quick tune and the half the team dropping out during event 3. The cross country was interesting, in the Porsche 550A (or whatever the open-top thing is).

Playground games won first time out...we won the first 2 events, surprisingly, given we were 5 against ...then 5 of the 6 quite before or during event 3. I had looked at the eligible cars before the event, saw 4 to choose from so got an appropriate tune for one of them (the Subaru 22B)...entered the event and found there were, like, 12 cars I could choose from, including my Peugeot 205 M16 (or whatever model it is) with a PGG tune for Mudkickers from a few weeks back, so used that as the dunes is fairly similar.

Only one comment on the easiest trial of the FH4 story.
The average level of FH4 player is not low, it is underground :) :)
Three trial done, nine victories with abyssal advantage but other players firmly in the last places, for a two year old videogame it is not acceptable

Baffling how a level 176 + 2 prestige can only score 200pts over all 3 events + 0 in 2 of them when 4 of the AI were in lower PI cars than them.

I'm not expecting Lewis Hamilton but you'd think somebody who's played that much would be at least competent enough to beat a stock MX-5 '16 40+pts lower than their car.

Should have guessed when I seen the gold suit, king's crown and silly dance on their avatar before the 1st race though really.

New Forzathon Shop ending at 7:30am Pacific. The Mini convertible was swapped to the VW IDR for 100FP. No change to the Festival Playlist events or rewards.

The '16 MX-5's stock tyres are actually pretty good for this Trial. It has excellent grip on tarmac, and they work pretty well on dirt, too. Like I said above, even with a 660 PI tune of it I was able to do a top 3% rivals time, and you'd only expect to encounter a top 3% teammate in around 1 in 6 Trials that you do, so it's not all that surprising that you can still beat a lot of people with that sort of PI disadvantage.

Maybe they are putting the cars in to the Forzathon shop this week on a 24 hour cycle that should have been rewards for the season challenges?

With the playlist of this month ,IMHO, we can have a preview of the future playlists when the regular lifetime of the game will end. there will be playlists like these without cars as prize (that can be in future all acquired in the shop) and only wheelspins and credits as reward

Please put the Lexus LFA and Toyota trueno in the forzathon shop. It’s the only 2 cars I don’t have and is almost impossible to even find one on the auction house

I did the Fortune Island trial last night, as it was S2 Hypercars on some quite technical tracks. The second circuit race was 5 laps rather than the normal 3 and the last race was the long Kraken course. Very enjoyable and more challenging than the usual trials - albeit there was an unfeasibly fast Lego Chiron which I could not catch at all on the circuit race despite it having 50 PI less than me (allegedly) - just kept pulling away from me at about 0.5 seconds per lap. Only had a team of three but everyone got some points to get the win.

True but you're a very good driver and not an AI, someone with that experience should be able to make something out of a 40 odd points advantage vs an AI opponent.

Perhaps that super wheelspin for 80% or the 200k credits reward is more desirable than you'd think for some people, otherwise I don't see why anyone who can't handle Unbeatable AI would bother with this trial.

I wish it was still possible to buy multiple, but they nerfed that to increase rarity and inflate prices. Would've been useful to buy multiple AE86s.

For the first 24 hours, when you did whatever was needed to become ranked to complete the Online part of the playlist, it was showing as completed on the Playlist (and giving the appropriate % score) but the page that shows what rewards you will win for the series was showing as being unranked and showing zero prizes won.
