If you only want 50% you can skip it.

I did it with my usual X class rally/snow tyre Mosler, but it did take me a few tries. It didn’t help that it was night time. The key with that speed zone is to cut across the inside of corners off the track as far as it will let you, to straighten the whole thing out as much as possible.


Speed Zone: Carden Creag ( you are allowed to cut the road really fast ) → 165Km/h or 170Km/h
Code Tune KTM X-BOW GT4 2018:… 856 315 166

Definitely this one. Is it even possible to do it without straightening corners?

As for PGG → did it with AMC Hornet (Bond car) with winter tires. Quite slow, but you can beat everyone at turning.
You can put winter tires also on 79 Camaro and Firebird. But they are much heavier.

What was the target for this? Presumably 100mph (sorry if you are in kmh)? I can do 101mph with relative ease in a standard non corner cutting run. I see you have done 109mph presumably with corner cutting but that’s a good bit more than is needed for the weekly target.

Do you own a Hoonigan Ford RS200? I use a tune by R e Z o a k and had no problem with the speed zone. That’s S2 but there are also X class tunes which presumably would make it easier.

Yes, tried this car as well. No Wintertires though.
I’m missing out by 2 - 10 km/h…
I’ll give it another go with different tunig…

YES! I did it!
Thx

See if it helps you do the challenges

I successfully did the speed zone pr with an upgraded rs200 hoon. No tuning. Driving was very sloppy.

Usually I do these hood-cam, this due to the dips and rolls on this one its hard to predict the corners, so I do 3rd person. AWD drift suspension/tires Konessisggsgessig, didn’t beat it soundly but got the job done on attempt 3. Helps to watch YouTube masters attack these things sometimes.

95 mph

Cheers - so a reasonable amount of time in hand with a well tuned Hoonigan. Sounds like it’s a lot tougher in other options. I have parked up at the side whilst waiting for a Team Adventure and have seen one guy go up and down it repeatedly in a Subaru - hope he’s at least getting closer!

Hoonigan RS200 with DharmaBum Dave S2 998 tune vs winter speed zone

Edit
Just did trial again with Track-Tor and it easily won all 3 races against AI and rest of the players (all actually had tuned cars), even last race, where I got a bit of help and smacked the solid wall at the start.
Track-Tor needs to take corners a bit slower, but just powers trough the rest :slight_smile:

My “I ain’t changing cars for no seasonal PR stunt” display of stubbornness :wink:

I use the Rimac for everything.

I do this too. (“You’re my favorite car, buddy, you gotta work with me here. One more try, you can do it.”)

I have weird habit to use Bugatti Veyron and Divo (winter) for PR stunts despite knowing there are better options. Took some time to get this seasonal Speed Zone right with Divo, but I just knew it, car can do it :stuck_out_tongue:

When it comes to most of these PR Stunt challenges, tune doesn’t really matter as long as you can drive. IMO the car choice is essential.

The usual list:

Hoonigan RS200 (clears all dirt Speed Zones, and most Danger Signs)
Hoonicorn (wild card for Drift Zones, including dirt ones, and some Speed Zones)
Mosler MT900S (clears tarmac Speed Zones)
VW I.D. R (clears slow tarmac Speed Zones)
Koenigsegg CCGT (extremely overpowered, clears tarmac Speed Zones and most Speed Traps)
Koenigsegg Agera RS (excellent for Speed Traps)
Rimac Concept Two (king of Speed Traps and tricky Danger Signs, requires skills)
Formula Drift Viper (clears Drift Zones)
Formula Drift Corvette (clears Drift Zones)
Numbered Ford RTR Mustang Drift (clears Drift Zones)

Another week, another round of tunes. I’m still trying to plot my best D-class Van/Ute, so I’m going to hold off on posting single-player championships until I have that all sorted out.

Weekly Challenge:

  • Own and drive any Extreme Offroad vehicle
  • Complete 5 Cross Country Series Events in your Extreme Offroad vehicle
    Car Used: Local Motors Rally Fighter
    Tune: Kumite - 113 675 257

This is a tune I made for an A-Class Extreme Offroad PPG series a while back, but it works well for this week’s Trial, too. Unfortunately, I did need to run the trial more than once (more on that below), but that gave me more than the 5 Cross Country races I needed.

  • Get a 2 star score or better in any Speed Zone
    Location: Lakeshore (SW side of Derwent Water, S of the ice drag strip)

I chose this Speed Zone at random, but the results were good. Didn’t 3 start it because I smacked a stone wall near the end, but the Rally Fighter did manage to clear 2 stars quite well.

  • Get 10 Ultimate Wreckage Skills in your Extreme Offroad vehicle
    Location: SW of Derwent Water

I had planned on doing this in the Rail Yard, which would work, too. All those light poles and fence sections waiting to be hit! But there was more than enough small trees and fences that it took no time at all to get 10 Ultimate Wreckages. I was already to a Great Wreckage when I got the Speed Zone because of that fence, so that made it go all the faster.

  • The Trial Co-Op Championship: “Ice Gauge” | Cross Country | (A800) Extreme Offroad]
    Car Used: Local Motors Rally Fighter
    Tune: Kumite - 113 675 257

This took me four tries. Partially due to my fault (missed a checkpoint every time on the first race, and managed to roll in an open field on the fourth try), partially due to having pinballs for teammates. That’s just something you can’t escape when almost nobody on your friends list has the game. It was a nice touch to see the Drivatars act kind of human, with acts such as running into buildings and missing checkpoints… but for the first time ever, I had a Drivatar dive-bomb me out of a checkpoint. Haven’t had that yet. While I kept beansing it up on the first race, this car was very capable in the other two, quite often finishing second to either a Drivatar or a teammate. For something meant for a PGG, it works well as real race build.

  • Seasonal Playground Games: Mortimer Gardens | (C600) Classic Muscle
    Car Used: 1979 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28
    Tune: Milkman - 118 610 802

While I could have put snow tires on, I instead went with AWD and vintage race tires. A mild sacrifice in grip for a bit of a power gain, but this thing still handles well. Naturally it slides on the ice, but it still has enough grip in the snow. Did well except for on some snow-drifty hills, but that’s to be expected with its clearance.

Side note: I had something I consider odd happen in my PGG session. We started 6-5 for King, then down to 6-4 for the start of Infected, then by the end of it, it was 6-1 in my team’s favor. As soon as Flag loaded up, it was somehow 6-2 again, with a completely new person having popped in at a very bad time. Has this happened to anyone else? I would have taken pics, but I wasn’t expecting it.

Add a few of us as friends Gator. Ziperr and Turtle invited me to join them for a trial last night and it was great fun. Other than that I drove straight into a barrier in the first race - the foggy conditions seemed to really disorientate me - we have a nice friendly race at the front with the drivatars quite a long way back.
