The listed reward cars are wrong. The Ioniq is the 80 point series reward. The Lynk is the 20 point reward for this week and the #20 MG the 40 points one.

Ford 1932 De Luxe Five-Window Coupe (Chiefs Kingdom): 155 730 065

Lexus 2010 LFA (LFA Injen): 167 543 834
Lexus 2015 RC F (RC F Injen): 115 518 004
Lexus 2020 RC F Track Edition (Sponsored By): 647 935 697

Lexus 1997 SC300 (SC300 Injen): 595 163 843
Lexus 2021 LC500 (lC500 Injen): 176 078 212

Worked on a lot of logos this week, and I think the “sponsored by” car may finally have enough logos to pass @PlageBLN 's inspection ( :wink: ). It was my first attempt at a “NASCAR style” fully sponsored out car. I included some of the stock manufacturers to fill in some space when I ran out of ones I made this week. It also has the Pegboard Nerds heart logo for Valentine’s day.

The Chiefs livery is actually what I’ve been running since whenever I made that (a few months ago), but I figured it might be relevant with the Chiefs in the super bowl.

Vinyl Groups:

Megan Racing: 975 899 022
Michelin: 115 832 608
NOS: 160 167 424
Lexus Wordmark: 631 701 752
Injen: 625 970 123
HKS: 647 379 565
KC Chiefs Arrowhead: 678 487 319

Injen was the featured “sponsor” this week, clearly. Beginners looking for an easy project should look no further than the NOS and HKS logos. Injen was my favorite, but it has a bit more in the way of curves to it. Megan Racing was a pain due to the angles and the custom lettering being pretty funky.

It’s a tough decision between the '21 LC 500 and the '15 RC F but I think I’m going with the RC F for the Trial.

For the trial, I’m going to start with the 97 SC300. My first swing at a build put up a 2:32 at Granjas de Tapalpa, which was good for about #700 on the rivals leaderboard. I’m going to use this one … and depending how the trial goes, i may work on finding the ideal build for this 97 SC300. But this one isnt bad , will be staying in my garage. AWD, rally tires, spoiler, 18" wheels for appearances, Vertex bumpers and skirts, rollcage because turning is a thing.

135 963 087 … if anyone wants to try it.


I will give it a try in a few…one of my favs but didn’t have time to do a third tune this week. This race is brutal on the unbeatable…so I suspect tomorrow is going to be pure carnage!!

I will be doing the RA Championship again this week and by chance I have an ideal tune shared for it for the 850R, was good enough to win me a Rivals week on Devil’s Pass when we did B Retro Saloons on there, it could win the seasonal championship with that restriction on the mainland too but I wouldn’t recommend it for that, doesn’t have enough in a straight line.

SC is 547 120 541.

I’m liking that they’re giving out certain items as rewards this series as well, I’ll have every top after I do the EventLab that awards the Epitaph Red shirt this week and all 3 Rally DLC team scarves after this + next week’s seasonal championships there.

Edit: Scrap the suggestion, I forgot Palm Forest is a Grit Reapers route ie mixed surface races, the 2nd race in that championship is Tierras Verdes a full dirt route, my tune still won easily but you don’t really want something on slicks for it.


Simplest Trial I’ve had for some time, been dilly dallying the past couple of days between the SC300 and LC500 but I decided instead no messing around I’ll just use Tony’s RC F, strong Rivals time and strong race times here from it.

Tricky was clearly a decent driver but aside from that honestly I know as little about my team as I did at the start lol, I was away from them all instantly on launch both times so never saw anything of them.

AI was swerving all over the place at the start of both races again, luckily didn’t collide with any of them.


The third race is Cruce De Valle and it was scary.



Do sideswipe skills in a Jaguar, chest is here:


A very easy Trial. I’m convinced that the Trial unbeatable AI isn’t the same as the single player unbeatable AI.

A very nice livery by @BravoSteelviper

Edit: Forgot to mention there wasn’t any AI traffic in the Trial.


it’s not, it’s based on the prestige and pi of the players in the race. literally every trial event is different based on who is participating


DJS eventlab is great, but should have been B700 max, another bad restriction choice


best example I can give of how trial AI works is right in this thread… @TheGillesMuller had #1 drivatar that was 4 seconds quicker than @x_ShadowsBane_x #1 drivatar


I’m just glad it didn’t have any AI.

autodromo cecilia eventlab is fantastic, and I’m not even much of a “race track” guy

After reading the other thread I didn’t quite know what to expect but trials aren’t what they used to be. Did a couple - the first using a tune with drag tires that felt good in testing against the AI but not so good for this, it beat the AI but I didn’t like the feel. The second using the RC F 20(@Tredawn tune)was a different matter. Past the drivatars almost instantly and a really easy drive.
