This should be fun. For those that have done this before, you know what to expect. If you haven't, it goes down a bit like this, well when I'm the bounty at least. I set a time and all you have to do is stay ahead of it. I will improve my time over the course of the month. New this time is I will lock myself out and give everyone the last few days to get past me.

Hope everyone enjoys it. Mechberg wouldn't let me pick the car and track as he thought I'd be at an advantage. (Boo!)

Good luck to everyone. Share your tips and tunes in this thread!

[[ Final Time to beat! - 1:38.230 ]]

My final time is locked. Good Luck!

If you can't get past that time, remember 100 random cars will be given out at the end of the event.

And if you participated in guessing close to my final time, the players that guessed within the 5 closest times without being faster are:

SnakyKnight5309
Parky66
Kaji AF16
TheRisingTide
True gan
nuvolari
x2STV2x
nettrom

What I am running:
Controller: XBox One Elite (no Paddles)
Current Tune: LMR Harmonic
-Braking: ABS Off
-Steering: Normal
-TCS/STM: Off
-Shifting: Manual w/Clutch


*************Guessing My Final Time Is Now Closed!! No more guesses or changing your guess. I've recorded everyone's guess.************
*** Adding to the gifting ***
From now until midnight (pacific time) Feb 12th, post what you think my final time will be in this thread. The 5 closest that don't guess faster then my final time will also have the car gifted to them. You can only have one guess, if you post more than one time, you're first post will count. If you edit that specific post after the cutoff then your time won't count.

Very happy that Community Bounty Hunter is back. Will the Forza Shame Suit (aka Bo Duke costume) return as well?

I think RBW Triton needs to make an appearance on the Forza Tuesday broadcast so we can meet our intended target.

Good luck, Elliot.

I may or may not make an appearance. I don't want to dash anyone's dreams too soon.

Triton,

Will it come with the custom livery, too, ala the JPM Bounty Hunter and others from FM4 days?

It is nice to see Turn 10 back to doing events for unicorn cars. The 1977 Aston Martin V8 Vantage looks like one sweet vintage ride and I'm confident in my ability to stay ahead of his best lap time in that I'm currently 3.3 seconds ahead of him and that his lap times on other tracks look to be beatable to get the keys to one. :) Good luck to everyone participating in this Rivals event!

Thanks for the answer.. I get the weekly rewards but can't do any multiplayer stuff, including what was required to get the ferrari last month. I can do the normal rivals modes though, so that's why i'm confused. Thanks for the help!

In the end it's just a glorified time trial, nothing more. Which also means everyone with a handicap or disability that isn't all that fast but just wants to have some fun driving/racing with this game is left out in the cold. Especially with a difficult car like this and on a narrow track like this. This is what I mean: 1:52:xx after 5-6 laps and I couldn't even get a proper lap in, dirty from the first to the last... sigh.

I'm not one to complain on these forums often but I have to say I'm extremely disappointed with events like this in particular. At least with the Ferrari 312 PB I ended up last place almost every time but at least I could play for lots of hours and eventually still end up in the top 50%. That's called disabled but motivated. But not for this one, I don't ever see me put down even a mediocre time.

Breyzipp,

I hadn't thought about this but you do bring up a good point. You have earned my respect for earning the Ferrari. Good work.

Don't poke the bear on the first day. (I don't race B but you can find some times to chase in R Class).

So just for fun I knocked a few seconds off.. (This is a first lap time, standing start)

Maybe I should have kept going on the 2nd lap. :)

Hah, I assumed I had to run it stock. I beat your time on my third lap, just, then couldn't improve it. Then I looked at the leaderboard and realised everyone was running tunes. Beat my own time on my out lap after that :)

Sounds like you should be right if you can do the rivals then
Always thought you needed gold for that too
