Got to be honest this looks like the dullest week I've seen so far in the game's life.

Not bad by any means, just very mundane.

Hello Rayne SE, that was one speedy Caddy you had there :)
Nice trial, except for the start of first race, where my truck was force field pushed into a bridge guard rail and had to reverse, to get back on track, but Rayne took care of it all.
So 3rd and 2x 2nd, 3:0 for team
Heavy hitters (over 2.000 kg weight) A 800 Ford F-150 Raptor '17, tune - 194 358 364
or good old Top Gear Track-Tor, tune - 108 868 608

Is winter time, so time to play in the snow with Land Rovers, lets take them cross country
A 800 Land Rover Range Rover '73, tune - 294 651 733
or modern one Land Rover Range Rover Sport '15, tune - 489 133 922

since that was fun, lets continue with playing in the snow cross country style, this time for modern rally cars, where there was just one easy choice of the car that can run on rally tires, can struggle on straights, but can at least take corners
B 700 Ford Focus RS '03, tune - 172 525 704
alternative Mitsubishi Lancer IX, tune - 128 878 784

enough snow? Ok lets try some dirt racing with offroad buggies, so time for the wobbly bug
B 700 VW Class 5 Baja bug, tune - 914 172 892

PR stunts as always .. Agera RS, tune - 167 849 655 used for danger sign and speed trap and McLaren Senna, tune - 176 256 116 used for speed zone.

Forzathon car this week is Ford Capri RS 3100 and since there is a challenge with skill chains, I put it on rally tires for some fun at the beach.
Tune is A 800 - 147 575 091, went for a bit of a drive on the highway, then went to easiest speed zone - Forest Green and as already mentioned, went to have fun at the beach getting skill chains.

Photo challenge ... well hmmm ... it says with drivatar or player, why not go a bit overboard :P


As always, I hope this can be of any help to somebody, take care everyone and have fun, bb

Hey El Barto, always a pleasant surprise to meet a fellow forum member at the Trial :)
Sorry again for that big jump at Coastal Rush. The suspension fully compressed into the ramp leading to my Caddy flying sideways into oblivion :D
Fun car with its ~970 bhp but the suspension has severe problems with jumps & bumps.

Speaking of fun cars the new Velar feels quite good at A800. It took the top spot for A800 road SUVs on my test track and it streghtened this impression during the few Unranked lobbies. Obviously not competitive against the stronger A800 cars but with 56s at Bamburgh and 1:06s at Lakehurst Copse it gave the other players a good fight.

No worries, I just thought that since I was close behind, I must have lagged or something to bump your car (didn't show on my screen, but this is Forza), so I rather waited, since I messed up your finish.

Anyway,great run and yes I also like new Range Rover.

The Velar is excellent. It comes with the bumper guards and roof lights. Sadly, no bodykit.

I really wish this was the SVAutobiography, but what we got instead, the First Edition, is still special. You can swap in the V8, of course, but it's not the same, much like a Ghibli S with a Ferrari V8 is not the same as a Ghibli Trofeo. Nevertheless, the First Edition has the distinction of being, well, the "first edition", with features that separate it from the other V6 models.

With Race weight reduction you can drop the weight to passenger car levels. I'd say it drives pretty well.

A couple of serviceable tunes for the Land Rover championship, if anyone would like to try them out:

369 708 460 for the Range Rover Sport.
178 699 340 for the '74 Land Rover Series III

Neither of these are recent. They were what I found in my garage when I logged in, so they were tuned weeks ago for previous events, and aren't fresh in my mind at all.

I tried it for B700 and A800 dirt at Tarn Hows Scramble and wasn't able to do competitive times in either class. I'd lump it in with most cars as being quite bad to drive on dirt with a wheel. Pretty much impossible to not make it slide, and then it takes an eternity to regain traction, even when you feel like you're pointing the front wheels exactly in the direction of movement. Didn't seem to have any strong points to offset that, so I just steadily lost ground to the B700 Roadster, which both had more grip around corners and started the lap moving at a slightly higher speed.

It happens sometimes, try to buy new one from autoshow and see if that fixes it.

I also run the trial again with my newbie friend (their second ever trial, first being a week ago), both using my Raptor tune and we got 1st and 5th, 1st and 4th and for last race 1st and 2nd :)
Since I already got new Range Rover from solo run, we also took it to do Land Rover championship co-op, very nice car indeed.

@ManteoMax

Excellent job always posting the details as always but my nitpicky eye just wanted to mention:

Own and drive the 1973 Ford Capri RS3100
Take the Ford Capri MkI out for a 10-mile drive.
Earn a total of 9 stars from Speed Zones in your Caterham R500
Earn 8 Great Skill Chains in your Caterham R500


You left the Caterham in the description of the week challenges. No biggy for me, but it might confuse somebody.


And it is time for another Heavy Hitters event, yay! Was someone listening when I mentioned that recently or just coincidence? I'm going to say they were listening, it will help me feel special. lol Does anyone have that list of cars that qualify for Heavy Hitters, since it's not a normal group filter? Oh, and be careful when reducing weight because you can make your Heavy Hitter no longer qualify. I happen to have my Bentley at 4502 pounds...so keeping it right at the line. Good luck, everyone.

Hello there,

Cars/tunes/suggestions for the PR stunts, and online events this week, 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.

Online:
**Trial: "Saved By the Bell" | Cross Country | (A800) Heavy Hitters
**Car used: 1931 Bentley 8-Liter (Autoshow 1,500,000 Cr)
**Tune: A800 CC Winter / 131 467 653

A.I. behavior: The A.I. seems faster than last week, although not 'unbeatable' fast, they (if what i saw represents the Trail 'norm') are also quite manic this week, all over the place, with actual lost of control without interference (that I could see).
Going for unusual in the car type 'Heavy Hitter', just because, well, interesting. Originally I wanted to use the Bentley Turbo R, but it seems not quite fast enough (it can beat unbeatable offline/solo, but is a very hard, in the Trial it seems to run midfield, can not catch the leading players), so 1931 Bentley instead (which has a lower 'speed' stat than the tuned Turbo R, but is actually faster...). The '31 Bentley can win against unbeatable offline/solo, although is a very close win when it does (for the second of the two events in the Trial, the Gardens is easy, and it is very difficult (myself) to win at the airport circuit vs unbeatable). In the Trial, the '31 Bentley is a monster at the gardens circuit, almost catching the tail end racers before crossing the finish line, did in one try (while in first place) miss a check point (second to last) in the final lap, reset, and manage to still be in 1st due to lead. Airport circuit is not for this car/tune, can place well, but winning requires luck (bad A.I., less than average teammates). Coastal Rush Sprint, can be really fast in this race, easily lead, as to win, actually uncertain, as not once did I not manage to do so myself, instead doing myself in and a missing a check point every single time, and so placing midfield to last (depending on place at time of miss) - offline, car/tune is capable of beating 'Pro', which is roughly the performance of the Trial 'unbeatable'. Tune is AWD, Forza air, 6.2L V8, supercharged, with rally/snow tires.
If you want something more conventional, I have the following, have not ran it in this Trial, but was used successfully in a previous winter cross country heavy hitter trial (maybe even same tracks): 2017 F-150 Raptor / A800 CC Offroad / 138 009 364

**Seasonal Playground Games | Mortimer Gardens | (B800) Hot Hatch
**Car used: 2009 Vauxhall Corsa VXR (HTF)
**Tune: B700 Games / 122 058 572

Games. Well the car/tune has grip (something I could not same about most of my fellow players), which means you can accelerate and steer (to some extent) on the ice! Comparable speeds to other cars I saw been used in the event, anyway, does not matter much you win, you win, you lose, you still win! Tune is FWD, rear Forza air (as P.I. cheat), rally/snow tires.

PR Stunts:
- Crescent Speed Zone, 2018 McLaren Senna - 'New S2 Road Race' (111 960 179) by Don Joewon Song - starting from the end with the bend heading towards the long straight away,
- Bamburgh Dunes Speed Trap, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544),
- Rail Yard Ramp Danger Sign, 2019 Rimac Concept Two - 'PR Stunt Rally' (120 633 544) - starting from the fence, aim to come off the ramp to the left, hope to avoid the building on landing.

Enjoy.

I think the cut off is around 2100Kg (4600 ish lbs) - but if your 4502lbs qualifies, it must be a touch lower say 2050Kg. Certainly is above 2000kg, but not 2000kg (too low). Anything that fits the weight is eligible if in the right A class this week.

My mistake.

Although was mostly unsure because it doesn't say in game, and you can only jump up and down weight in the game in margins. I only know quite a few of the cars can be pushed out of Heavy Hitters, i.e the 1931 Bentley, yet you can't get it to 1996/2000kg, only above plus or below plus (maybe there is a secret combo, didn't find it myself).
