Also, on any car, the steering using the joypad is extremely sensitive - any way of slowing it down a bit?
Are you using simulation steering in the difficulty settings? That will feel very sensitive on a controller. Essentially on simulation you have the whole steering range mapped 1:1 to the controller joystick. It's really intended for use with a wheel. Normal steering is generally the better choice as it essentially varies sensitivity and steering lock range depending on speed.

I use simulation steering on PS4 controller on PC , using ds4windows

Works fine
If anything at higher speeds it seems like it doesn't turn enough... !!!!

I've done a sticker as it would take a lot longer to do just the black parts.
Search for PHer Sticker.
A few other vinyls on my storefront "Thejackal GN" LB Works, Toyo tires, even lidl and Aldi lol
All the same stuff is on my Forza Motorsport 7 storefront too.

If anyone figures out the way to get 3 stars on the Prince Street speed trap with a super GT let me know. I've tuned up my AMG GT-R and CLK Black as high as they'll go and they're nowhere near quick enough even with all upgrades maxed out and running minimum weight.

I think this may be an error and maybe the challenge was meant to be to obtain 2 stars, or 3 stars over 2 or 3 runs, because as far as I can tell, none of the cars can be tuned to go fast enough to get 3 stars on that trap, they don't have enough grip to maintain speed through the corners on the run up and they don't have enough power to get up to their max speeds on Price street anyway. The reason I'm thinking it's a bug is because of the stupid typo in one of the other challenges that makes me think they have no QA process and didn't even bother to read back what they'd written. I don't think 230mph is achievable and it wouldn't surprise me if they never tested it to see it if it's doable.

So we get a 650S Spider with a fully working roof in Vista mode, but no option to have it down whilst driving? Eh?

I managed it in a tuned 812, albeit only by 0.5 mph...!

Yeah same here...also was anyone else’s text for the second challenge bugged, the parade lap one? Mine had words missing from the middle of it, so couldn’t work out whether it wanted me to complete 10 laps in the lead or what. Did a custom race with 15 laps just to be sure, and by the end I’d only done 6/10. Doing another 3 lap race got me the challenge though so assume it actually meant just racing to the front?

The parade lap challenge (second one) is for number of cars passed to get to the front, set a long lap race, overtake some to the front, stop, wait for more to pass then complete it (it took me a while to figure out as well!)

I need to have another crack at the speed thing, hadn't thought to try the 812, as bought a DB11 to do the rest!

Yup, my “drive to the front” was bugged also. I guessed a couple of races would do it.

For the Princes Street trap it is as much about ratios rather than just upgrades.
Just download the most powerful tune you can find (X hopefully). Some tunes will also be named Forzathon/Speed trap etc.
Forget trying to self tune your own favourite car, do it with one that works.

I've just uploaded a tune for the 812 Superfast. '232MPH Princes'.

Approached from the east after multiple western approaches at ~227, first time. Doh!

Don’t have an 812. Presume you need to get lucky on spins?

It was a Forzathon Shop item I believe, you can maybe find one in the auction house, but last time I checked they were seriously expensive.

If anyone's interested, this is pretty useful:



Easy way to get some FE cars and money. Protip though, don't buy the cars from auction house to upgrade, because 99% of the time they will already have the prizes claimed.

Its well worth making sure you do enough Forzathon challenges and events to have enough points to buy both cars in the Forzathon shop each week.
They usually have some fast and rare cars in there. Then all that happens is a week later everyone asks how did you get that car?
You are really missing out if you don't look at it once a week.
There's no guarantee that the cars will come up again anytime soon either, not even in spins.
People are still asking for the stupid Colorado ZR2 (usually americans) that was a Forzathon shop special.

What do you have to do to unlock to car / cash? I can’t figure it out.
