worst trial... Try #3, hasn't taken me more than one try in months. Up to #6. 3 people in untuned cars who can't beat anything every single time.

I read some bad things about it but I didn't think it would be that bad. After two different cars and three different attempts, it's that bad and worse!

The AI on the Alumi Crafts is ridiculous - they clip through flags, spin out and still come in top 6, have ungodly acceleration and speed, etc.

Other drivers often show up without tunes and many drop out if the blue team isn't leading after the first race. It's a grind but I want the silly bunny suit!

Anyone with a car/tune recommendation to consistently keep up with the AI?

The VW Baja bug is one of the best for B class. The tune? I would pick anything that priorities acceleration/speed.

Does anyone have a tune to "Earn 3 stars at the Princes Street Speed Trap with your Super GT car"?

My Ferrari Superfast is not registering the trap to tell me that I am under the required Seasonal Level too. and I thought it was a Super GT car.

I had tried a few super gt cars before and tested them the other day. I had success with these tunes. Of these four the Vantage and F12 were the easiest and can both be done in 5th gear. This leaves 6th to use elsewhere for high pushing 270mph.

13 AM Vantage - princes 3 star - 178 022 473
F12 - princes 3 star - 144 540 126
Amg gtr - princes 3 star - 695 124 730
Mb Sls amg - princes 3 star - 172 213 020

Edit: I also set up a Super 7 for each titled Super GT Princes 3 Star if anyone wants to try the tunes or needs practice without traffic. The 812 superfast and the two PO cars work also but I haven't saved the tunes.

A bricked out window isn't as broken as this week's trial AI.

PG seemingly stepping in for Codemasters after their just as broken sprint car AI in Dirt 5 was patched yesterday.

Edit: Done it on the 4th go after 4 of the team quit and I won the last 2 races so didn't matter where the other guy finished, all the same though the AI is just nuts, some crazy JCW Buggy drivatar must have rammed or rubbed me at least 7 times in the first race in my previous attempt and their landings off the big jump are absolute nonsense for them driving Can-Am's or the aforementioned JCW Buggy.

2nd edit: Another vote for the Bug as the go-to vehicle, getting to the front drivatars ASAP is crucial in this trial to stop them ignoring every object + rocketing away unable to be caught and the Bug is excellent off the line for it + also probably the steadiest for landing off the big jump (well if you're human that is, it looks like the AI could use a milk float and still land fine + be able to get instantly on the power again this week).

I have been beating the AI with the Class 5 VW....

Edit: kept making changes and I noticed several copies were shared even though I thought I unshared them. I did enjoy el Barto's.

Now for real.
April fools, incoming Easter, ... spending whole day working on my car, so don't really feel like doing trial over and over and ... nope, mid second try I started to think this might be the season where I actually don't complete it, but then a miracle, from 4 people being there just for the ride, to :)

So the trial and B 700 cross country racing in offroad buggies , first outing, 2 easy wins , but 0:2 for team, that actually brought tuned cars, but ... so I quit at the start of 3rd race.
Second try and bunch of stock Cholas (must be a sale somewhere :P), as mentioned I wasn't in the mood to do this for eternity, but mid second race I knew it can be done (I so wish, we could run trial solo, or somehow trick the game and run trials solo, so much easier and actually relaxing drive). So 5 wins in total.
VW Class 5 Baja Bug, tune - 914 172 892 (this tune runs same parts, but has different settings then 137 489 135)

Feeling much better, so to solo championships and starting with S2 998 street scene racing with Koenigseggs. Not exactly relaxing, but still. :)
Koenigsegg CCGT, tune - 139 406 798
or Koenigsegg Agera, tune - 543 885 130

One down, two to go, next to A 800 dirt racing with Renault Megans and I remember using one Megane that was already proven as a good choice
Renault Megane R.S. 250, tune - 610 753 292

Only one to go and its D 500 road racing with woodies, ... second week of crazy Mini Traveller
Just found that lil gem of a Ford Woody, fun to drive thing.
Morris Mini-Traveller, tune - 113 152 826
or Ford Super Deluxe Station Wagon, tune - 102 911 666 (this just might be my new toy, its fun to drive :) )

PR stunts as always done with Koenigsegg Agera RS, tune - 167 849 655 for speed trap and danger sign, used Hooniogan Ford RS200, tune - 428 155 751 for offroad speed zone.
One rewind used on speed trap, when hitting a bump and flying into the rocks and one rewind on speed zone, as I overshot the first corner. On danger sign I actually landed backwards and rolled, but it still registered just fine :)

Weelky Forzathon and pick of Super GT cars and I picked Aston Martin DB11 PO, tune - 142 526 844, did some racing to earn those pass skills, then did some "drifting" at the Festival and finally went for the speed trap.
Since many people don't have it, and not all super GT's can hit 3 stars on Princes speed trap, her are some other choices from previous Forzathon:
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, tune - 299 426 679
Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, tune - 107 150 803
Mercedes AMG GT-R, tune - 471 221 926
Edit
Videos of those cars hitting the mark:

Weekly Super 7 reward is Rossion Q1

This brings us to finishing pic, been a while, since Del Boy last time took the stage, always on the run for good business :)


Hope this is of any help to somebody, take care everyone, don't get fooled too much :), have fun and bb.

PS
Might try few more options and will edit this post.

^^^^^^^^

If its the "Easter Buggy" Challenge where its all buggies, *sigh*, they do this every year this time, it's a controller-thrower exercise in frustration.

Baja Bug, tuned, can crush the first race....but then you'll be smoked by Cholla's in the 2nd and 3rd due to speed.. If you go with a Cholla and convert to 4WD, you'll lose due to low speed. If you go with a Cholla and tune in 2WD, you'll face the nightmare of buggies handling with tuned 2WD. This and S1 Hypercars in the Spring Rain are the most frustrating trials that I can recall.....

I seriously hate Buggy Trials. The AI have super powers that make them close to unbeatable even though they screw up. Couple that with team mates who cannot for the life of it drive a buggy and you will not, i repeat WILL NOT complete the trial. I was lucky (as i suspect others who have completed it were) that on attempt #3 all bar 1 team mate dropped out in the 2nd (we won the 1st), as i was leading we won that as well and the 3rd race was a 2nd place. If there was a full team we would not have won. I raced the Baja but the tune i have on it must of been from someone who had their tunes wiped for some reason or other as it is not in my tunes list but it is another persons tune (which is very good for these races so it's a shame i can't share the tunes name). For those who haven't raced yet i suggest the Baja with probably El Barto's tune as El Barto can (and does) create some very nice tunes.

I did the wood Friday championship, just because I happened to know that I had a fairly decent tune on the Morris Traveler, and it would be a breeze.

709 157 126 if anyone wants to try it.

I'd have a fairly decent tune for the Ford Wagon too, but they still haven't fixed the import feature, so I can't bring it over from Horizon 3.

The Princess St. speed trap is giving me some trouble. I know I've done this at least twice before, but don't remember what car I used. I'll see if I can come back to it on the weekend.

I've done some of the events already but got stuck on the Megane one as it just hits a perpetual loading screen. No buttons exit out, had to shut down the Xbox a few times. So maybe tomorrow.

But word of the day: El Barto's Class 5 Buggy.

I don't have the tune number offhand but it is one he created over a year ago. I think this now marks my 1 year anniversary on this forum because I needed his tune to get through this event last year. It is not the fastest, I had faster tunes, but it is the most driveable and easiest to handle through obstacles and aggressive AI. Finished 2-1-1. Didn't take the lead until halfway through the race or even later but it runs well, responds well, and just sets up well. Last year I used it to help a number of people through the Trial, I extend that offer again. Give me a holler here or online and we'll set it up.

I am happy to also say my driving has definitely improved. Last year was also a Koenigsegg event for the bunny ears. I did not earn them. Couldn't do it, not even on Highly Skilled This year, I got it on Unbeatable. Had a CCX ready to go from some other event. Had to restart the second race three times though. Would get crashed out of a turn by some AI behind me, or get tangled in a wreck caused by a lead AI. Still only finished 3rd in that race, but won overall on points, so good enough. Very frustrating especially in the wet and with so many places where you can lift.

Next challenge is to see what cars I can get through Prince St.

Good luck everyone.

Still using a wheel ( with slightly different settings ) and remembered your tune well, used it again in the Easter Buggy Trial and we won 2:1 in my first attempt, so I won't have to do it again :).
Definitely recommended for wheel drivers.
