I dunno, I didn't think it was that bad at all with the appropriate settings? Thought the focus was the hardest seasonal yet.

and 1trip, I'll be adding you once my bspec is finished with his 24 hour race

However, check out the new Seasonal Events that just dropped a few minutes ago. If you have a Citroen C4 WRC car and some soft racing tires, its an easy 1.5mil and 120,000xp

yea that one got me every time, (and a shit load of other people on the internet)...until I realized I just happened to lap a guy.


And I just beat the C4 Seasonal event. It really is fucking EASY.

Try it now. Horsepower and tires have been changed to "Unrestricted"



So far I've won 3 of the SE3 events, the Prius one (only because I got one as a prize car), the Ford GT and the Citroen C4 WRC race. Trying the NASCAR one from SE2 now because they finally added the GameStop car.


Also, all the SE2 events are now unrestricted.

are you shitting me? wtf caused PD to decide to pussy out?
That's aggravating as hell...those wins took a lot of time and effort to pull out total! Changing to unrestricted just makes them like every other damn race out there.... So damn gay.

Yeah well, it kinda defeated the purpose to spend more money than you were going to make on the race just to tune the car to win it.

Plus, you can only do them once, so its not like they are going to be major cash cow events. Im glad I can finally win these damn things now.

you had to be able to pull off consistent 1:00.5x lap times to win it. if you can tune a car and drive it, it's not too hard. definitely liked the challenge. it's weak that they are making these less difficult.

Didn't you say you were looking for a German touring car? lol

I was able to pick up the TT at the online dealership for $500k, but I'm guessing it's not on there anymore. According to the possible cars allowed in the series, it's the fastest stock.

well I actually just came across an M3 GTR Race car online so I bought that and modded it. If it doesn't do well I'll take your TT and trade you for some stuff.

nonono, that's the thing, believe it or not it qualifies. Check the qualifying cars tab. It counts.

Are you sure it's the LFA? What I saw was the IS-F Racing Concept on that tab.

Ya I think PD realized they made some of the races far too hard. The mini race was another one that I could not get better than 4th on. I was happy to see the new S3 events are actually winable. Maybe a little too easy though. I didnt care much about the money as much as I did about the XP. I was almost at level 22 last night and after I did all the S3 events besides the C4 event I was at 24. Now I can concetrate on winning cash. I finished the dreamcar championship and two others last night.

I do not see what point there is in leveling up any more since there are no more races to do above 24. Maybe they will add those later.
