Yeah downgrading my cars and being forced to drive them slower than they're capable of every week is never fun but this forzathon is the worst one yet!!

I don't like to see anyone lose their jobs but for the sake of the game I think this person(s) needs to be reasigned at least!

This week took the longest ever!!! The thing about a drag race is that you can win with your eyes closed...seriously! So there's no point to them.

However, my feeling is that it is nonetheless slower than the Atomic Punk. It's definitely not terrible, though, if anyone wants to try it out, my tune is shared (search by my name to find it).

I spent a bit of time edging ahead of Jezza in the i Pace monthly rivals. I can't believe the real car drives like that, it just wouldn't be safe for a production car to go straight into a slide with 10% braking and 10 degrees of wheel rotation.


I have to agree with the I-Pace. It wasn't a plesant drive during the few laps for the monthly Rivals. Under acceleration it understeered on corner exits and under braking the tail starts rolling over resulting in slidy behaviour.
The diff setting seems awful and the rear feels too light under weight transfer. Not to mention the car already starts in A-class. Even weaker B700 cars demolish this thing.
Can't see a good performance-car here.

Saw your Bentley R and it felt great while driving but I missed the race brakes. That's why I would probably run the C63 V8 on an Offroad-build.
Eventually kept it as a B700 RWD stock engine, stock tires build and while not competitive it's a lot of fun. The tons of torgue cost unnecessary PI but otherwise the stock engine is quite decent.

And, we're back,

Some suggestions for this weeks seasonal events, for those that find such useful. All tunes are my own, unless otherwise noted, all shared by myself (or others). ~ 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: 2014 VW Golf R (Autoshow 50,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 Road / 128 621 331

A.I.: seem more competitive offline/solo vs. the trial, behavior offline and in the trial is okay, only the occasional oddball bad behavior. ... In the trial, as mentioned, none of the A.I. were particularly difficult, was my teammates that were a problem. ... Car is AWD as standard, running race tires, Rocket Bunny rear wing, and it has the hazard light for the roof.

**Seasonal Playground Games | Rail Yard | (C600) Rods and Customs
**Car used: 1932 Ford Deluxe 5 Window Coupe (Autoshow 35,000 Cr)
**Tune: C600 Games / 117 319 484

.. Tune is AWD, supercharged, rally tires, rally suspension, hot rod body (no fenders/guards), no hood/bonnet (flathead with side pipes), no bumpers, chopped.

PR Stunts:
- Strathbridge Speed Zone, 2018 McLaren Senna - 'New S2 Road Race' (111 960 179) by Don Joewon Song,
- Lower Fell Speed Trap, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544),
- Open-Cast Cliff Danger Sign, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544).

Solo championships - Raced against Expert, Steering: Simulation, ABS: on, Traction/Stability; Off, Gearbox: Auto.
**Championship: "The Sun Never Sets" | Street Scene | (A800) Retro Saloons
**Car used: 1990 MB 190E 2.5-16 Evolution ii (Autoshow 150,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 Road RWD / 158 332 868

Quick car, only had issues with the A.I.'s chosen lead, once caught however, race was over for the A.I. - this A.I. car was the only one for each race that was anywhere near me, don't know what happened to the other A.I. Tune is RWD (very stable), race tires, as stock appearance (induce stock aero).


Remaining Solo:

**Championship: "Lotus Eaters" | Road Racing | (A800) Lotus
**Car used: 1956 Lotus Eleven (Autoshow 140,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 Road RWD / 147 629 102

Not sure if it is the game 'playing fair' and matching, or just the Lotus cars in A class don't have remarkable top end speeds, but the low top-end speed of the Lotus Eleven proved to be a non-issue in the events. Events straight forward enough, car/tune handles well, provided (as with all RWD in game) you don't over do applying acceleration out of corners - this is especially so for this Eleven tune. The one circuit race was the only troublesome race, some of the corners require a gentle hand so as not to spin out, giving the A.I. an advantage. The Lotus Eleven seems to have a better lock to lock turn radius than the others, I was often able to cut in a pass (with no traction loss issues) on the corners where the A.I. traveled wide. Tune is RWD, has Forza air and is running race tires.

**Championship: "Old School Chic" | Road Racing | (D500) Classic Sports Cars
**Car used: 1962 Triumph Spitfire (Barnfind)
**Tune: D500 Road / 152 552 125

Trying to make use of barn-find cars when I can, as I don't see a lot of people using them, so here we have the Spitfire. Generally not the fastest, yet maybe the best in corners. Good grip, stable at speed in corners. A.I. is competitive vs. this tune (expert), firstly the straight in the Bamburgh Coast Circuit means you need to make all your passes, and gain a lead in the windy section of the track, need not do it in one lap, I did not gain first till the second lap. Lastly the sprint, if you are not leading, with some gap, by the time you reach the castle turn, I feel this race can not be won - while you can match the speed of the lead, you have no/few opportunity to make any gains in the second half of the sprint (same for the A.I. if you are leading). I don't use manual, lack coordination for it, however driving in manual maybe offer some benefit for this tune. Tune is RWD, sport tires, no aero, car is 4-speed as standard.

Most of my tunes this week are RWD, low downloads this week for me, yay!
Enjoy!

Bentley tune is good Bree. I’ll add it to my list of cars to amuse myself with in Team Adventure. It isn’t quite top level as expected though. I did a lap pretty much on the same pace as you using the Bentley - 52.7. I just had a few laps in the Scout and did 51.4 with capacity to do a time in the 50s and I’d probably be a couple of tenths quicker in the Punk. Still, only a second or so off the meta isn’t bad for a car like that.

No idea why I had done one lap in the Punk by the way. Have no recollection of doing that 😄.

I found it enjoyable. It's soft, so it relies heavily on weight transfer management.

The engine (it's not an engine but you get the idea), on the other hand, is incredibly weak. I thought it would be faster due to being electric, but the acceleration is very bad. You were kind to this car, Rayne: I think this engine is C600 tier and its only saving grace is the modern chassis.

Some of this week's events are mildly annoying, but I didn't have any major issues doing them. Well, except for the Playground Games. I don't know what kind of glitches everyone else is experiencing, but I was having some serious issues with this one:

First, you gotta love starting a C600 Rods and Customs Playground Games...and finding a X999 Ferrari 599X Evolution on the opponent's team.

It's almost as great as having your C600 Hudson Hornet get stuck on part of the geometry and go intangible so your teammates can't even knock you loose so you can participate in the match...no less than 4 different times...on no less than 4 different pieces of geometry.

Oh, and that part of the Playground Games where you tag the opponent flag carriers and they don't lose their flags? That might be my favorite part.

Don't get me wrong, I normally enjoy the Playground Games. I'm not complaining about the choice of cars, the location, or the concept of the games in general. However, this week's PG was outright broken and the only redeeming quality is that all I had to do was stick it out to get the reward. For all I know, that's why they changed the requirement.

Ineffective tagging could be due to connection. The game's been acting up recently.

Illegal cars is an old issue, though. No fix other than report and hope for a ban.

The only legit access currently is through the monthly Rivals on Astmoor Circuit. We don't own it yet.

I've had the opposite happen several times. I'll be about to score and someone will get within a few feet and I'll lose my flag when there's no way in heck that they touched me.

Also, the weekly forzathon felt like punishment. Six street scene and five drag events? What is the point of that? I should really talk to a therapist about my need to 100% every playlist.

With a wheel+pedals, it's so hard to not over-brake that race brakes are pretty "meh". They're generally only worth it if the weight saving is good value for the PI. Otherwise, if anything the extra braking performance is a negative with a wheel, as it makes the wheels lock up on more of a knife edge for pedal movement. It's all very "fake difficulty" - real racing drivers do leg presses in the gym to train for the immense force you need to apply to the brake pedal.
