One of the best drag racing cars in Forza Horizon 4 is Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. This muscle car can be unlocked by completing all ten chapters of the Stunt Driver challenge. Each chapter can be completed within three tiers, but in order to get Dodge Demon you need to get the highest tier on all ten races.

This guide will provide you with tips on how to get all three stars on each of the Stunt Driver races and get Dodge Demon in Forza Horizon 4 PC. Once you complete this massive challenge, the car will become available absolutely for free.

How to Get Dodge Demon in Forza Horizon 4 PC

In the game's main story menu you will find four options:

  • World’s Fastest Rentals
  • Drift Racer
  • La Racer
  • Stunt Driver

Choose the Stunt Driver option to start the first chapter of the races.

Stunt Driver: Chapter 1
  • Vehicle: Bugatti Chiron
  • 3-star goal: 300 ft (92 m)

In the first chapter, you will be given a task to drive through the village and jump over the windmill. In order to complete the challenge you need to last 300 feet in the air and land safely.

There are no special tricks here. Start accelerating your car no later than 5 seconds before hitting the windmill ramp. You should manage to get 250 miles per hour this way and make the top tier goal.

Stunt Driver: Chapter 2
  • Vehicle: Auto Union Type D
  • 3-star goal: 2 minutes 5 seconds

Here you will be given a vintage sports car to ride along the coastline. This is another simple task that shouldn't take you longer than 2 minutes to complete.

The only caveat is that you should drive relatively carefully and not hit anything on your way. Auto Union Type D loses a ton of acceleration, if you hit anything on your way.

Stunt Driver: Chapter 3
  • Vehicle: Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera
  • 3-star goal: 475 ft (145 m)

This challenge is very similar to the first one, but this time you need to jump over a river.

As before, start accelerating about 5 seconds before you hit the ramp and if you get to about 200 mph, you should cover about 480 feet to complete this task.

Stunt Driver: Chapter 4
  • Vehicle: Hoonigan Gymkhana 9 Ford Focus RS RX
  • 3-star goal: 80,000 points

This time you have a limited time of 2 minutes and 30 seconds to do all sorts of jumps, turns, drifts, as well as hitting as many props as you can, such as trash cans, lamp posts, etc.

Each of these will add up points to your final estimate. The only way to win this challenge is not to stop. With the car you are given this is very much possible, as it handles brakes and turns extremely well.

Stunt Driver: Chapter 5
  • Vehicle: Mercedes-Benz G 65 AMG
  • 3-star goal: 50 s

The next challenge gives you an offroad Mercedes-Benz SUV. The point is to go down from the top of the mountain to its base as quickly as possible.

Since G 65 is an extremely heavy vehicle, you need to start accelerating it as soon as possible. In this way you will have a strong start, which will add more speed to your downward velocity.

Stunt Driver: Chapter 6
  • Vehicle: Renault Alpine A110 1600s
  • 3-star goal: 1 min 40 s

This is another vintage car challenge, where you have to race around Edinburgh.

You will be given the route of your race, but you have to ignore it if you want to earn all three stars. Win this challenge by making a shortcut right after the bridge, which is not shown on the map, but you will definitely see it once on the road.

Stunt Driver: Chapter 7
  • Vehicle: Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
  • 3-star goal: 46 s

Here is a challenge that allows you to experience the speed of the Dodge Demon.

It's a simple race through a number of tunnels with ramps, but you must not use them or you will lose your high speed. You might be inclined to take onr or two, but you should just avoid each and every one of the ramps in order to win this race.

Stunt Driver: Chapter 8
  • Vehicle: MINI John Cooper Works
  • 3-star goal: 22 s

This challenge requires you to park the car on top of the shipping container. It's an easy challenge and requires almost no effort. All you need to do is drive up a series of containers and full stop on the very top one.

You may need a few tries before you get the right time for the three stars finish, so just keep replaying this chapter until you get it right.

Stunt Driver: Chapter 9
  • Vehicle: Peugeot 205 T16
  • 3-star goal: 65,000 points

On chapter 9 you will be required to combine a simple race with the point accumulation system from chapter 4.

The best way to earn points is to drift a lot, and the quickest way to finish the race is to shortcut through the frozen lake and the forest.

Stunt Driver: Chapter 10
  • Vehicle: Aston Martin DB11
  • 3-star goal: 1 min 15 s

The final race has penalties on leaving the highway, which means that you are not allowed to make shortcuts.

However, the penalty won't count if you spend less than 10 seconds away from the highway. Use the fields at the very start of the challenge as shortcuts. These can be easily crossed before you hit the 10 second penalty.

That's all you need to know on how to get Dodge Demon in Forza Horizon 4 PC. Be sure to come back soon for more Forza Horizon 4 tips and tricks articles.
