:sleeping: I. Might go for the Vette just because I think they look cool. I’d like the Belvedere but probably not for 40 nickels. I might get to the auction house. With all the forty point cars, last series they gave everyone that silly blackwing. And this series it’s the series prize cars.

Reminds me of the old saying about prior planning preventing [redacted] poor performance.

Let’s see how the flag crew handles that!

Snarky? @KnightOfRen8514

I had a feeling this one was going to be one of the new cars added in this series since it’s in FM.

I’ll go for both. I don’t want to do 40 points, but I quite like the cars this update, even the ctrl+c ctrl+v ones. The Z06 Vette is nice, should be a blast to drive. I think it would be fun on the new tracks. I quite like the Belvedere as well, and while I hate the 40pt diet, I’ll go for it this month. Nova and Firebird are cool.

I hate what they did with Winter though. Making the Lucid Air Sapphire (that sounds like a perfume) the 20pt car and locking the GTO Judge behind the bigger 40pt meal deal is annoying. I don’t want that EV crapbox. Getting removed from my garage at the first chance.

Continental is an awesome addition and I can’t wait to cruise in it. Won’t be great for winning many races I imagine but it will be a super nice car to cruise the map with. The return of the Rossion is super exciting for me, I love this car and I love cars like this. Lightweight with tons of power. It’s why I love the Nobles as well. I’m glad to see this car back.

I know there some Corvette enthusiasts who will tell me I’m crazy but these cars are all basically the same, I’ve been afraid at times that I removed an exclusive rather than a duplicate. same with a few other brands. audi has me scared as heck to hit the remove button.


Chevrolet 2017 Camaro Zl1 (Cashed Out): 150 990 775
Dodge 2018 Challnger SRT Demon (DropShadow Demon): 137 281 517
Ford 1969 Mustang Boss 302 (PrismaShelby): 539 641 091
Ford 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 (PrismaShelby): 783 792 015
Ford 2013 Mustang Shelby GT500 (PrismaShelby): 116 144 557
The Cashed out is a bit subtle with the Green on Spectraflame green, and there’s dollar signs adjacent to the license plate. Not to be confused with @CashlessPlains8 (who does her own liveries and sick tunes), but the name just fit too well.

The dropshadow demon is a variation on the Demon design I did before. Slightly retouched the hood a bit, but the biggest change is putting a black layer of the demon logo and wordmark slightly offset over the 2-tone layer mask reveal, creating a drop shadow that kinda changes with the light angles. I can’t tell if it’s spooky/cool or disturbing/distracting, but it’s a little different.

The Mustangs got the standard go faster stripes, but in Prismacolor black which isn’t quite as usual. I also modified the shelby cobra logo to show through some of that Prismacolor effect, so it’s pretty likely that nobody else will roll up with a similar setup.

Mid week I’ll likely do an alternative color drop. I’m thinking Prismacolor white on the mustangs for a whiteout look, or swap the over vinyl to black for a blackout look. Whichever looks better.

Late addition… couldn’t leave @AudioRebelUK without a Man City livery for the fastest trial option.
Chevrolet 2017 Camaro Zl1 (Manchester City): 603 803 500
This one is an original instead of a Gulf conversion, so it has some different line/stripe work.

Ford 2016 Mustang Shelby GT350R (PrismaShelby): 564 250 406
Made this one for @x_ShadowsBane_x , it’s got a bonus prismacolor cobra on the rear bumper. Not a Shelby cobra in particular, but it looks cool and fits the theme.

Chevrolet 2023 Corvette Z06 (Stars N Stripes): 593 287 222


If I happen by some mistake to end up with a loose ariy softball in my garage it will go in the auction house. It will probably have a max buyout of 20k or less from the developers so people won’t want to auction it off.

Subtle difference on the Cadillac. The gift was the ct5-v. This upcoming series reward is the ct4-v

one car worth mentioning this season is 2018 Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE - can do The Trial, 5 PR stunts, 2 seasonal championships, and photo challenge (at least) for 32 points

share code: 147 024 426


Thanks, I snagged those liveries. I didn’t see one for the car I’ve chosen to use for the Trial. The 2016 Mustang Shelby GT350R.
This thing is a handling beast with the body kit and rear aero. Not as fast as some of the other Mustangs but certainly handles better.


the shelbys handle surprisingly well


So the new one is worth one less! It’s the worthless one!

it is my choice. Didn’t have much time this week…been sick. Figured one car to rule them all lol. Tuned it pretty much with the same stats as your public tune…so figure I should do okay. Didn’t realize how well it handled. I thought the other 1l was better…but think this one is better for circuit and off the line speed.

The powerbuild widebody ZL1 1LE will wipe the floor with everything else in the Trial.
Didn’t test the normal ZL1 widebody yet but I doubt it’ll match it.
The Shelby 350R with the widebody and Viper V10 is probably the best Mustang contender.
