Getting 3 stars on all Forza Horizon 3 Speed Traps is easier than getting 3 stars on Drift Zones and Danger Signs PR Stunts; however, some of the Speed Traps Stunts in the game may require multiple retries.
In order to help you achieve this task we have created the following Forza Horizon 3 guide which reveals useful tips and a video showing how we got 3 Stars on these specific Forza Horizon 3 Stunts.
On the map, a Speed Trap location is marked by an icon showing a road safety camera, as you can see in the image above.
To perform this type of stunt you have to drive as fast as you can through the road safety camera.
Similar to the Speed Zones, each Speed Trap in Forza Horizon 3 has 3 difficulty levels for which you will be awarded one, two or three stars.
Obviously, for the first two levels the requirements are lower, but for the last one you will have to drive very fast.
Here are some of the factors that will affect your speed while driving through a FH 3 Speed Trap.
First and the most important is the car you use. For your convenience, in our video guide we also reveal the models and the upgrades used by us when working on these PR Stunts.
The terrain is the second most important factor you have to consider when attempting a Speed Trap in FH 3.
Based on the first two factors we recommend buying the Ferrari F12TDF for the Speed Traps placed on asphalt and the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 for the traps placed on dirt and sand.
The upgrades you buy for the cars you play with, are very important as well. Look for upgrades that maximize your car’s speed, acceleration and launch, instead of braking.
Your starting point and the route you follow are also crucial for these stunts. Try starting from an area placed in a straight line with the Speed Trap in order to avoid unnecessary brakes, and pay close attention to the environment.
Avoid the traffic as much as you can or you will fail getting 3 stars. When you have to choose between hitting an opponent or hitting the brakes, always choose the latter.
Therefore, before running through a Forza Horizon 3 Speed Trap make sure you:
- Check the leaderboards and see what cars have been used by other players to beat the required scores.
- Watch our video guide below and pay attention to our starting points and the routes we have followed.
- Upgrade your cars based on the terrain.
- Use the rewind button every time you hit an opponent or object.
- Practice and be patient. These stunts are accessible even to new drivers.
