Question - will the Monthly Rivals be fixed this time or will it continue ?
It was bugged in Summer, Bugged in Autumn, so will it be sorted out before the end of the series?
Defaults back to the original rival after multiple completions.

Was briefly sorted at the end of Summer then just went back to bugged again today.
Just need to know that you’re on it.

The B700 Street Korea seasonal championship is disappointing considering we only have 4 choices.

If it had been A800, we could have also used the 3 recent EV’s as well as the Elantra N.

It will likely be absolute garbage but the Kia can just about get pulled down to B class.

Got it down to B700 with drags, rear aero, heaviest rims, full roll cage and sport arb’s.

Doesn’t give much to tune beyond tires, gearing and diff and it comes in over 5000lbs.

Need to do some testing now but I don’t have high hopes.

99% of people will use the Veloster anyway, every other car is a seasonal prize oddly enough

I won’t be doing the championship but we both had the same thought.

For what it is that’s a very respectable time and it’s surprisingly good to drive too, so I was well wide of the mark with my guess of what it would be like.

It definitely drives better than I expected. The massive weight is a bit of a detriment but I was expecting an undrivable piece of garbage but it isn’t that.

Complete a Horizon tour in the dailies again - for 1 point. :angry: (and yes I know you don’t have to do it).

Edit : Maybe I could leave it until the following Spring week when the Tour is on that playlist, that could complete both I think.


Just when I started messing with the Korean street race builds…xbox live says we are having issues with the server so I can’t log in. Oh well it’s 108 today…so out to the garage for a quick workout and hopefully they fix it!!

If there’s a bug use FH5 Report New Issues where we’re monitoring for reports and voting. If there’s a resolution on bugs it will be posted on those topics.

Already there Max; thanks.

Good idea, just a shame the achievement has to be so unenjoyable that you have to resort to such means to complete it.

Sounds like the Veloster is going to get quite a bit of use, so I can offer this latest updated design for anyone interested. Thanks & enjoy!

I would care a lot more about monthly rivals if there was an archive of the leaderboards. as it is, I almost never put in a serious effort

I also don’t really care about the Monthlys usually - once their done, their done but I sometimes go back to boost the ranking up so it doesn’t happen during an online event to avoid an unwanted wheelspin that I can’t reject.
The problem this month is that it keeps resetting back to the first pre run completion rival and times instead of the last beaten one. As long as they keep the current ones rather than the previously beaten ones then it doesn’t matter.

For anyone wanting to try another McClaren if they haven’t tuned them all yet…the 720 is a beast. I put rallies on it, front aero (slammed the aero all the way in the front and back), and ran better times in it than the 12c. Still not as fast as the 2014…but very very close. Just throwing that out there…hoping people don’t all show up in the same car this week.
