Forza Horizon 5: How to complete the Watersplash Speed Zone and Launch Control Danger Sign challenges

This week’s Festival Playlist in Forza Horizon 5 starts off the second week of the Japanese Automotive playlist, with a 1995 Toyota MR2 as the exclusive season reward.

Want to snag the ‘95 Toyota MR2 to add to your Japanese Automotive collection? Here’s how to complete the Watersplash Speed Zone and Launch Control Danger Sign challenges for the Series 17, Week 2 Festival Playlist.

How to complete the Watersplash Speed Zone

I know I’m starting to sound like a broken record at this point but it bears repeating – the Mosler MT900S is an absolute beast, especially for Speed Zone and Speed Trap challenges which go offroad and have an S2 998 requirement. I used the Mosler MT900S (with an offroad tune by Sineap that I’ve used many times in the past, Share Code: 144 622 874) to complete the Watersplash Speed Zone weekly challenge at 95 MPH.

Approach the Watersplash Speed Zone from about 0.6 miles from the north. Build up full speed on the paved portion of the road and then hit the brakes fairly hard for the first turn. Feather the brakes for the next turn and then accelerate again until you hit the end of the speed zone.

If you’re having trouble figuring out how to complete the Watersplash Speed Zone at 95 MPH for the weekly Festival Playlist challenge, refer to our video below.

If you still don’t have the 2010 Mosler MT900S because you haven’t been lucky enough to procure one through Wheelspins or through the Auction House or you’re a contrarian and you want to go against my solid advice, the Watersplash Speed Zone can also be completed with the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR with a dirt tune by KapienPL (Share Code: 175 280 407).

How to complete the Launch Control Danger Sign

To complete the Launch Control Danger Sign for the Series 17, Week 2 Festival Playlist (1600 feet) I decided to bust out one of the fastest cars in Forza Horizon 5, the Koenigsegg One:`1, with a speed tune by B3ast4947 (Share Code: 164 322 614). The tune gives the Koenigsegg One:1 a top speed of 270 MPH, a 0-60 of 1.63 seconds, 1341 horsepower and 1,010 ft-lb of torque.

Start off about 2 miles from the west, close to the Emerald Circuit road race, which should allow you plenty of time to approach the One:1’s top speed by the time you hit the Horizon Festival Mexico outpost’s drag strip. Avoid crashing into the guard rails at the beginning of the drag strip and then try to launch from the left side of the jump ramp.

If you’re having trouble landing the Launch Control jump, refer to our video below.

If you don’t have the Koenigsegg One:1, try using some of the faster S2 998 Road Racing cars in your garage, such as the Bugatti Chiron, the Rimac Concept 2 or the Lotus Evija or the Hennessey Venom F5.

Enjoy your Super Wheelspins.

How to complete the Super Scramble Trial

To complete this week’s Super Scramble Trial, which requires players to use a C 600 car from Japan on a pair of dirt tracks, I used the Honda Civic RS ‘74, with a killer tune by Saeenu (Share Code: 787 108 101).

Saeenu’s tune makes the Civic RS ‘74 a speed demon on the dirt trails, with beastly grip and excellent handling that belies its 5.7 handling rating. Give it a try if you’re struggling with the Super Scramble Trial this week.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
