I hope SVT Cobra is allowed because I don't have the Shelby yet, and don't have the money to buy one just for this forzathon.


2000 Mustang Cobra SVT did not work for me

You have to be one.


This has to be the most unbalanced rule in the game.
Firstly if you buy a car for an inflated price due to the paint you should be able to sell it for the same if it still carries the paint !
Secondly if the car is supposed to be worth more due to paint it should carry a paint that has X amount of downloads / popularity / likes and NOT just a 2 min coat of flat black by a 5 star painter - that is not worth anything extra.

Finally if this was ammended then this question would not be asked so often - it only gets asked because the way it is makes no sense.

So for my first challenge i chose the Cobra race to see if the King Cobra would work, on completion 2 achievments popped for the same race ??
I know the race was an event but to obtain complete an event as well as complete a race in a cobra for the same race is a bit stupid - dont they test this stuff before releasing the forzathon?

Just lucky the next challenge wasnt to complete the other 2 races, other wise all 3 would have been over in the same race.

So, I was wondering, what if you're a completionist, and you 3-stared every pr stunt, doesn't that bar you from that "get a 3-star on a pr stunt" reward or do you just have to set a new pb?

You can do the same stunt three times as long as you meet the three star requirement. I just did the jungle danger sign (the first one you encounter in the game) three times in a row and the challenge popped.

2000 Ford SVT Cobra R DID work for me.

Thanks for the tips on driving on the highway for the Lucky Escapes.

A lot of my future Challenges are already 100% but still locked. I know these events are timed and will only unlock during the stated period but curious any way.

I just want one!

Anyone having issues with the unlock. I did the cobra one and unlocked two of them, had the ingame notification popup (so I assume I got the rewards), went and did the other two. I have the achievements unlocked (Windows notification) but haven't had them popup in the game yet. Interestingly enough when I go to the Forzathon screen all of them are still in white rather than being greyed out for the two that I have completed.

Was hoping to burn around in a new Merc today, oh well.

Yeah I did three new PR stunts and the achievement shows completed, but there was no pop and most important no car. Does anyone know what the deal is?

Ok I just did and old one over again and it popped. May just be a little wonky.

Make sure you are beating the 3star speed. If you 3 starred it before it will show 3 stars now even if you go through at 1mph.

So make sure you are beating the 3 star requirement.

I didn't try a bunch of cars to test this out, but I was using a Skills HE car at the airport and wasn't getting Lucky Escapes, then switched to a non-HE car on the highway and got them right away.

I chose an HE car with drift bonus, figuring since I totally lack drift control it would take some time and i might as well take advantage of that. The Lucky Escapes seemed to pop where warranted.

I'm pretty sure they test them... and the intent was for ANYONE playing the game to get at least one Challenge...

Its not the developer's fault if you don't understand their motivations... also, this isn't the FIRST time this has happened so... deal with it.

You seem to think the challenges should be tailored to your personal experience... I'm pretty sure they have 3+ million players to worry about

Sorry PC, even shut down the PC went to bed, came back the next morning and still the same. Just got back from shopping to try it and they all appeared. I swear I had the first two appear last night, its strange to see them come up again. Guess I was just impatient!

I did a 1 lap race in the Shelby Cobra Daytona and it didn't pop up the achievement. That would have been the first time a Forzathon won't work for me. So I jumped into the Ford Mustang Cobra and did another 1 lap race, during that race the achievement popped up, probably from the Shelby but a good 5 minutes later.

This also cracks me up, from the WIR:

Yep, we’re making you work for this one a bit. Achieving 3 Stars on three separate PR Stunts isn’t exactly the Forza Horizon 3 equivalent to digging ditches, but it’s not a throwaway either. You’ve got to plan ahead and make sure you’ve got the right vehicle for the right events. I expect different drivers will be have very different approaches for how to make this work between speed cameras, drift zones, danger sign jumps, and so on… So, what’s your plan?


Lol seriously? It's as simple as this: get into whatever S2 class car and go to a straight road camera, for me that was my S2 Centenario in Blizzard Mountain. Speed through it, teleport back to where you started and rinse and repeat for a total of 3 times. Over and done with in less that 5 minutes. My speed camera required required 221 km/h for 3 stars IIRC, I got around 300 km/h without a sweat.
