I think this weekend marked my semi-retirement on forzathons. I'll get all the coming horns, cars and wheelspins of course but other than that l find myself not really caring anymore.

I think this is the first instance where we can get all forzathon achievements at once.

Sure...if Factory-Backed works for online races and not just single-player races.

It won't. It differentiates between the two for a reason. "Online race" is self-explanatory, but as people learned with the Ferrari Forzathon, "Race" means single-player.
Rules of troubleshooting:
1) Have you tried turning it off and on again?
2) Is your Internet working?
3) https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live-status < Check here for service issues.
4) If all else fails open a service ticket and/or forum post.

I hate to rub this in but it only took me 2 tries... Kind of cheap how I did it in a V12 TT AWD Camaro, but I got the cheevo... Also about this next one day forzathon, I don't get how a race doesn't count online races. "Online race" is more specific, while "Race" should mean ANY type of race, including online races and maybe also head to heads.

No offence dude but you can't be very good if you really had to do It 53 times. Even I managed it on my 3rd attempt.

What are these v12 swaps mentioned. I ran a V8 GTO Judge at 97mph through an 85mph speed zone lol

53 times ? which speed zone do you try to do ? and what car ??
i did it in less then 3 times, with some rewind here and there.
i'm using a v12 twin turbo dodge dart, and using the poinciana speed zone on byron bay.
start from the south part diagonally so we can enter the speedzone in high speed and finish at the bridge also diagonally so we don't lose much speed on the exit.

I did it in 2 or 3 times out at rocky roadway with the pontiac gto judge

So everyone ready

How many "i didnt get my rewards when ive done everything right" are we gonna get this week lol


Can confirm all 3 challenges can be done by completing 1 race online in a subaru

And all rewards sent immediately as the challenges popped on the screen

Ferrari Forazthon? Ha. This has been an issue in Forzathons well before that. 15 races in a rally monster, anyone?

I just completed the entire Forzathon by doing one online drag race (quickest Forzathon ever) so an online race still counts as a race. You don't have to be in single player mode. An online race still counted as a race for me.

Maybe they changed it then, because online races didn't work for the last "complete a race" challenge.

I completely skipped it since the reward was only 20k credits anyway. By the time it takes to even get to your garage and think about a tune you could already have that 20k from a simple race.

Forzathon is fun, when it's like a challenge. For instance the last one with the speedzone. I remember taking a Dart down Great Ocean Highway flatout and basically wallriding at 180 mph.

That was fun.

The new Subaru one. Hopped into an online session with a Subaru and one race, done.

Two races. tried to get onto an online lobby in a Subaru but it stuck me in a Lambo instead. As with an earlier Forzathon, I probably spent more time building a new livery for the car than racing to win it.

I don't have a problem with the single day Forzathons being easy ones... if this had been a weekend long one, then i'd join the 'Too Easy' crowd though.

It's nice to be able to hop on and get it done in under an hour on a Tuesday, I definitely like the longer ones for the weekend though.

Be in the car in single player that you want to use online then search for the class that car is in.

We are now in March and I have completed 87/87 Challenges. More to come in March, maybe around another 20. Will need to wait for the Official Announcement and Max's post for more details.

February's results are:
1 Horn
2 HE Cars
9 Cars (total)
15 Wheelspins
80,000 XP
230,000 Credits
Plus whatever XP and Credits generated in getting those rewards. I have saved my Wheelspins since before I hit 500, so I might have about 50 to do on Saturday morning. If I do them. ;)

Did people really find the muscle speed zone challenge that difficult? I managed to do it completely by accident about 2 minutes after I put the game on first attempt!?
