    Maybe a little late, but if anybody's looking for a good car for the Trial, the Zonda Cinque works great. It's S2-908, I think, but if you convert to AWD and put in a roll cage, it drops it to S1-899. It's brutal off the line with the AWD and handles really nicely with very little of the normal AWD understeer while also being plenty fast enough in a straight line, I had no problems walking all over the CPU.

    Yesterday I couldn't go online anymore in the game. At all.
    My Teredo wasn't qualified, even showed as disabled. I fixed (after a day of not being able to play, aside from Offline) with these instructions:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/killerinsti...e_your_teredo/

    I have to try that Zonda!
    Also, the new Peugeot 205 R is a Dirt B700 beast. It is good in A800 and S1 900 too, but in those classes it is beaten by Rally Monsters and similar cars.
    But damn, it flies in B700!

    I managed an interesting experiment: it is Winter in the game and the B700 Playground Game of this season has cars struggling, as B700 prepared for Dirt or Cross Country races usually do not benefit from Rally tyres.
    That is true, but... I tried a Ford Escort with Snow tyres: the car has a measly 6.6 Acceleration score; yet, with Snow tyres I totally obliterated the whole grid, even my own teammates.
    So, I reckon that Rally tyres do not *normally* make a difference for low classes' cars, but they do, as Snow tyres, when there's a lot of snow, winter gravel and ice.
    I even noticed something similar weeks ago in an online unranked series: S1 900 road races in Winter, I picked as a mistake a supercar with rally tyres (so it automatically changed them to Snow tyres). Two tracks out of three were quite covered with snow and ice: I manage to dominate and in one race I lapped a quarter of the grid, so much I was ahead of all the other vehicles in the race.

    The trial this week is full of idiots who take stock '98 Supras and crash them a lot. That said, there appears to be a bug that always awards the human team the first win no matter how they do, and I put up a tune for the '92 Supra that let me win all three races.

    Yeah, totally stupid!
    I mean, we have a guy in our crew that has not much time to play with us so he missed to obtain the '92 Supra before and he was miffed to pay 16mil in the auction house to buy for the '92 model (and I understand that when you have not much money in the game), so we helped him out - but the game is stupid itself: they setup a Trial where you either have a '92 Supra or you use a '98 Supra which sucks in B700 and yet is stuck behind the very same B700 '98 Supras used by the drivatars.
    Anyhow, yes, me and the other mate wiped the floor with the '92 Supra.

    But it is the usual: people jumping in the trial without no thought whatsover about the required car and PI.
    They should put a "no stock car" rule in the Trial, fuck it.

    Put together a '73 Escort RS1600 for the trial, it's stupidly fast compared to the AI (and so far, the other humans). Actually handles really well, the only tip I'd have for it is on the first race, when you get to the third of the big jumps, let off the gas a bit so you land before the lip of the following drop, otherwise it can go nose down and ruin your day.

    On the positive side, it's fast enough that my controller ran out of batteries, I put new ones in, and I *still won*.

    Apparently they changed the Playground games to now give you the prize even if you lose (it did tell me I got the prize because I came in at least 2nd, which is tough to not do when there are only two teams). I haven't done the playground games since they first showed up. I joined, my entire team quit after the first event, and I ran through four more events trying to just not be a sore loser, I guess. This move is apparently to try to stop people from just quitting when things go south in the first round - there's some incentive to stick it out even if your team isn't that great.

    It did work. Our team lost the first round, but nobody quit. We won the next two, at which point half the other team quit, but half remained through the next round and we got it 3-1. It's the first time I've ever won that, so now I actually have a shot at the achievement for getting 100% in a season. Just gotta do the next four days of the simple forzathon tasks, none of which are getting an airborne pass, so I think I'm in good shape.

    I didn't realize the achievement was for 100% in a *series*, not season. Fuck that noise.

    Garage space will be augmented to 1000 car slots in next update! Weeee!
    But yet not upgrade on livery and setup amount. Lame.

    Saw that the series rewards are cars I already have and, after getting the 100% series achievement, it was actually a really nice change of pace to just do the one race to win the new Bentley and then turn the game off for the rest of the week.

    It's annoying that it's feeling like work, but when one of the things is doing like 11 races in an Eclipse and getting five of the "pass while drifting" skills, that's 100% just work. Normally the Trial is my favorite part of the week and I can't even bring myself to bother.
