Rivals Challenge - FH5 Edition

It amazes me Rexazr was able to get this thing to go that quick. I had trouble with it. I’ll try that one.

Edit: interesting that the ‘12 Aventador was easier to drive. Had grip issues with it. Similar to the Sian.

Took my Zenvo in Open just now and it did alright, 6 races, won 4 of them on Bahia, Lookout, Plaza + bizarrely Reservorio, hopeless on Dunas Blancas with it’s low top speed + was pushed out of a checkpoint by a tossbag on HMC but it did finish with the fastest lap.

Did 3 more races after but a LVL1000+ in a FXX (I mean…really? LVL1000+ and you still won’t leave your precious meta car?) wiped the floor with the entire lobby, the Zenvo still managed to be best of the rest though.

So pleased I’ve come across this car this week.

no; no i have nothing…

Well, got a 2:12.6 with the CC8S (own tune & shared) and I don’t know why but was curious to see if it worked for auto, annoyingly it did and I instantly took off another .5 with the first run. Switched back to manunal and now can’t beat it.
Not that there’s anything wrong with auto it’s just that it took me ages to get used to manual, persevering in the belief that manual was quicker, and to be fair, because you can stay in a particular gear longer or have the ability to drop a gear, manual imo is better.
However, better is not always quicker, if that makes any sense lol

Did anyone else try a svj with drag tires? Feel like it could have potential with good tuning and driving abilities.

I tuned a Pagani Huayra BC with drag tires, (gasp), and still has remarkably great handling. Still doing some tweaks, but it has unbelievable acceleration. Best performing S1 car I’ve seen paired with drag tires since the Brabham.

You’ve not tried the Viper AE then? :slight_smile:

Just to say I’m taking a break for a couple of weeks. Probably do the next event to start about the 15th.


You’re absolutely right. Funny you mentioned that, since that’s exactly what I thought about this morning after re-reading my post. I remembered when we had that Rivals challenge and the Viper AE with drags was amazing.

I start to notice a change in my skills I guess due to all the Rivals practice. Yesterday when doing the Trial I came in second and first, both as first finishing non drivatar with some distance to my teammates. Don’t think this ever really happened before.
But then some of you still make me look a noob.


I can empathize Gab, you’re not alone. I thought I was improving & doing fairly well too in placement among 2.5M players on the last challenge, but obviously not very competitive within the rivals group for whatever reason. I eventually just decided to move on & take a break from the game when frustration started to exceed enjoyment.

Wanted to make sure it wasn’t a mistake so did the Trial again. This time I won three races. A bit less distance to my teammates, there was a pretty fast 4* among them, but still. I basically notice I loose at lot less speed through corners.
Up and until now games can’t get me that frustrated :smiling_face:.


Yep similar story here, done the “monthly rivals & clean lap thingy”. went quite well, entered some open races (not something I do often) 3 races & 3 3rds, sounds ok untill I saw there were only 4 of us lmao…
Oh well, I blame the car lol


:raising_hand_man:That was me (*4) with you this morning in that trial running in 2nd behind you all 3 races.

After that 1st race loss to the AI I didn’t think we were going to pull that series out, but I recognized your GT from the forums here so I stuck it out and glad I did as it was only my 2nd attempt at the trial as from reading it wasn’t very enjoyable for some. Good racing with ya! :sunglasses:

Just a quickie… I notice in the first post @Jezza14 said “We had a rivals challenge thread going for quite some time over on FH4”
Personally & saddly I wasn’t into rivals back then and spent most of my time pointlessly racing up and down the motorway/highway in impromptu races with others sitting around the roundabout/tunnel (oh the memories) haha.
I’ve not played FH4 since FH5 release, so a year and a bit and was curious if this was still going or indeed do people still play FH4 ?

FH4 numbers dropped off a cliff when fh5 released,but it has got almost busy again in last couple of months,esp thursday/fridays.Rarely have a problem finding teams for Trials/PGgames,but last time i looked non-playlist online stuff was pretty barren
