Access to Hot Wheels events requires the Hot Wheels Expansion DLC; users without the DLC will still be able to gold the season and unlock the “Min, Meet Max” Achievement without these event points.

Didn’t we figure out the Hummer SC was A800? The hell is going on?

I already posted the hummer is in a800…


I’m just going to assume the 3 Ford Shelby’s are eligible for the Torque the Talk championship.

Yeah, that’s why I’m baffled that the post says D500. Dunno what’s going on over there right now. I guess they’re still deciding the restrictions for the playlist.

I will reconfirm in the morning.
Update - the event is A800 as shown in the Festival Playlist images from the Forza Monthly livestream.


I wouldn’t count on it. It might be for the in-game Shelby manufacturer rather than any Shelby branded car. Might be like that [Redacted] thing. The Ford Shelbys are “Ford [Redacted] '16” and “Ford [Redacted] '13” etc, while the actual Shelbys have Shelby in the shortened version of the name.

Maybe but there are only 2 Shelby cars listed under the manufacturer. I suppose those 2 would be better balanced against each other compared to the much better handling Ford Shelby’s but on the other hand the 2 Shelby’s are kind of op.

Allegedly one of the dirt courses in mangrove scramble…and I wouldn’t recommend the trucks on it lol. Unless you go for some of the smaller body vehicles. The new silverado is to big unless you want to bounce off the wall. Just ran it in rivals…too much slow down to make the corners without whacking the wall. Looks like a lot of people were using the ford f150 on it.

For the Trial.

Nissan Titan Warrior Concept 2016

SC: Design 420 438 477 - Tune 599 531 245 (C 600)

You can find some more cars and tunes here.

For the Shelby championship.

Shelby Cobra Daytone Coupe 1965

SC: Design 144 361 545 - Tune 102 381 750 (S1 900)


The first course in The Trial is reported to be Mangrove Scramble but I’m not sure what the weather conditions will be. I did 3 practice laps Solo with 11 AI in the following vehicles:

2020 Ford Super Duty F-450 DRW Platinum (C0MoonStars)
2020 Ford Super Duty F-450 DRW Platinum (waznewz)
2020 Chevrolet Silverado LT Trail Boss (geistwriter)
1997 Land Rover Defender 90 (waznewz)
1970 International Scout 800A (Saeenu)
1970 GMC Jimmy (El Barto inc)
1976 Jeep CJ5 Renegade (onlylegend80)
2011 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor (Dont Giva Deuce)
2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class (Dont Giva Deuce)
2006 HUMMER H1 Alpha (PlageBLN)
2016 Nissan Titan Warrior Concept (PlageBLN)

It’s not scientific but from the tunes that were available to me the 2 Platinum Fords were fastest followed by the Chev Silverado (+ 5 secs). The Chev Silverado with the tune by geistwriter was however nicer to drive.

There are several items in the Playlist which don’t tally with previous information but thanks to ManteoMax and others we now have most details. Minor matters and it may be nitpicking on my part for which I apologize include: the 40pts reward car is the 1968 Pontiac Firebird, the Hummer class/PI, Rally Adventure Speed Zone 70 or 80 mph, Hot Wheels Drift Zone target 15,000 pts seems a bit low previous info was 150,000 pts).

improved to #122 Mangrove C600 with this tune pretty easily, it won’t catch top tier Scout or F450 but it’s excellent, I like it more than RAM


Thanks as always Plage. :+1:

I decided after all the tuning…all the trucks…to go with the jeep rubicon lol. Too many choices. I refuse to use the f450…too many tight corners and I don’t want to end up on a youtube video looking like bigfoot again at a demolition derby haha. I used the extreme a while back and ended up on a video just mauling folks on the gauntlet . It was funny…but I tend not to like to smash into people. I try to maintain grandmadriving form …Second run I will use the silverado though…no scout. To me it’s becoming the new boneshaker.

Need better proofreading for the community messages.

American Automotive Festival Playlist W2

Bald eagles screech as these two icons of the muscle car era arrives at the Horizon Festival during the Spring season!

More rewards are coming your way with the second week of the Festival Playlist available until November 16.

It had the '68 Nova and '66 Firebird, which are coming with the new week, but it’s Autumn, not Spring. And the second week runs until Nov 23, unless that’s supposed to say “available starting November 16”. Also should be “arrive”, not “arrives”. “These two icons … arrive”.

Posting a little early this week for those that like to spend some time with the tunes before the season starts…

Whew! That’s a lot more than I realized I was going to share.

The Scout is a replica based on this:

The Daytona is a replica of this:

The Cobra 427 is a replica of this:

(So it’s a replica of a replica… don’t let the inception loop get you!)

The red white and blue pick ups are pretty thematic and are takes on the real life “Liberty” livery that’s available for purchase.

I made like @x_ShadowsBane_x and prepared something for the Fords (make like a Coastie and “Semper Paratus”), in this case White out with Prismacolor white stripes and Shelby logos.

The Bronco Raptor has my classic Gulf pattern based on that one Porsche.

The MB X-class has a Man City Livery.

And the Jeep has a custom vinyl group of Missouri Military Academy, a military school in Missouri.
