Tips and FAQ History

This is the fourth iteration of a tips and FAQ page:

Each time the tips have improved. Unfortunately due to the way forum posts and blogs work, only the originator RR3 Michael P or Guillejarque can edit the first entry. With Tips and FAQ for Jaguar Legacy: XJ220 anyone can edit this page, hopefully this will lead to many more editors adding useful content for everyone’s benefit.

General Tips

Strategy

Real Racing 3 is a massive game designed by FireMonkeys (FM) to make you want to spend real money on R$ and Icon Gold. Many in this Wikia community have posted comments what they have managed to reach the end of the game without spending any real money. The bottle neck currency is Icon Gold. Read this article on strategy for more information:

Methods to slow bots down

Track Recommended method to slow bots Damage Taken
Autocross Each time you run an Autocross event, set a slow time of of 4th or less, either retry or continue and re-enter. If you retry ignore the bots' names, that splash up before the race, they will be changed at the end of the race, you will notice, after each time of running, the target time is increased. If continuing doesn't increase the bots' time try repeating and vice a versa.

Do not set a low time at the line, tilt B will give better control to coast before the line, if you are too quick or brake and wait at the line, smashing the time will increase the AI.
Minimal
Cup
& NASCAR
As soon as the race starts, pause, retire, confirm, either retry or continue and re-enter, if you retry ignore the bots' names, that splash up before the race, they will be changed at the end of the race. Also ignore the bots times on the final screen too, they are based on an average lap time, as you quit their times are based on a standing start, as an average. Instead use the times as a guide, with each retry or continue the bots times should increase. If continuing doesn't lower the bots' time try repeating and vice a versa.

OR If you have a broken car run the race a few times, each time you lose you will still get R$ and Fame, place 4th or less, repeating or continuing and re-entering will lower the bots.

Once ready to go, get to 1st place as quickly as possible and try to slow the bots down, either spin them out or park in sharp bends / chicanes and stop them passing. By setting a low time, but still coming first, it's still possible to still lower the AI of bots, think about a Time Trial time, if you set a set a slow time it lowers the AI.

Minimal /None.
Drag Race Start the race, press go and leave the car is first gear, do not click repeat, as this will repeat the current race, against the same bot, instead choose continue, then either retry or continue and re-enter. You will see the opponents will change to lower ones.

Once ready to go, don't undo the lowing work by setting a fast time, instead use the gears to slow the car, once passed the bot go up through the gears, but watch the bot doesn't speed up / close the gap, or if close to the line go down a gear to brake.
Minimal
Elimination Elimination events are one of the best opportunities to lower the bots AI, deliberately lose a few times, do not move at the start (Tilt B), wait for the 20 second timer to run out, then repeat or continue and re-enter. You will see the opponent will change to lower ones. If you retry ignore the bots' names, that splash up before the race, they will be changed at the end of the race.

Once ready to go, get to first place and slow the bots as per the cup event.
None
Endurance Endurance events are one of the best opportunities to lower the bots AI deliberately lose a few times, change the controls to Tilt B, when the lights go green do not move, wait for the timer to count down the 60 seconds. Either retry or continue and re-enter. If you retry ignore the bots' names, that splash up before the race, they will be changed at the end of the race. Note the distance is reducing each time. If continuing doesn't lower the bots' distance try repeating and vice a versa. It's possible to get all 7 bots distance to 1.0mi.

Another point, the online and offline bots can wildly vary on Endurance races, especially with fiends distance'. It's normally much better to race Endurance races offline, before going to the Endurance event go offline (aeroplane mode), if you've already started an Endurance race online, exit back to the main menu, if your logged into FB / G+ / Weibo, goto settings and logout, then force close, go offline and relaunch RR3, bots should now be offline ones.

Once ready to go, don't undo the lowing work by setting a good distance, instead once passed the 1st marker, park up (tilt B) and wait for the timer to count down.
None
Head To Head As soon as the race starts, pause, retire, confirm, either retry or continue and re-enter. Repeat multiple times, ignore the bots' time on the final screen, it is based on an average lap time, you can use it as a guide that the bots' time is reducing.

Once ready to go, don't undo the lowing work by setting a good time, instead once in 1st place, use the same technique as cup events, slow the bot down. Quite often a single bot will not push you once stopped, so you can easily hold it up for 20 seconds, then go for it. Wait at the line to reduced the time set, but still win.
1 lap of damage /None
Hunter As soon as the race starts, pause, retire, confirm, either retry or continue and re-enter, repeat multiple times, each time you repeat the distance to the 1st place will increase.

Once ready to go, don't undo the lowing work by setting a good distance, instead once passed the 1st place marker, slow down and maintain a small distance advantage ahead, when near the line slow to reduce the distance, but still win. It's also possible to spin out the NISSAN SILVIA (S15) to reach 1st, but be careful not to set a top distance. Final point, the NISSAN SILVIA (S15) can be on a different section as track from you, e.g. If 1st place marker is 1,000 yds behind. The NISSAN SILVIA (S15) could be going flat out down a straight while you’re in a hairpin or chicane, so the 1st place marker is going 1,000 yds behind the NISSAN SILVIA (S15), but travels at the same speed so doesn't slow for the chicane! The worst tracks have chicanes before the finish line, like Spa or Le Mans, learn from any losses, track knowledge will help in future events, sometimes waiting by the line is better, but be aware your stopped and 1st place marker could be going 120 MPH.
1 lap of damage /None
Time Trial Set a slow time; in a Series this event does not count towards continuing your race career (i.e. it does not unlock the next Series). However it does count towards completing 100% of the Series.

Running a time trial with a broken car will therefore take no damage and lower the AI of bots.

Note: If you play against friends do not be tempted to upgrade your car and set faster times, as this will increase the AI of bots, you could always do this once you've bought all cars :)
1 lap of damage /None
Speed Record As soon as the race starts, pause, retire, confirm, either retry or continue and re-enter. Note the bots' time is reducing. If continuing doesn't lower the bots' speed try repeating and vice a versa.

Once ready to go, don't undo the lowing work by setting a high top speed, brake as soon as you hit the speed for 1st place.

If your still struggling to reach first place, the start finish straight is normally the longest straight, you can do a U turn and drive the wrong way around the track, so once around the last turn, do another U turn, and blast down the straight, with all assists off, it doesn't matter if you fly off track at turn one. If the start/finish straight isn't the longest you can still use the no assists method to hit the top speed, again it doesn't matter if you fly off track. However once you reach 1st place brake, so you don't increase the AI of bots. In special events challenges there is quite often a no off track clause to stop this technique, forcing you to upgrade to hit the required speed.
Minimal /None
Speed Snap Speed Snaps are the same "parts of tracks" as Autocross, except you must hit a top speed at the line so set a top speed of 4th or less, the lower the better, then either retry or continue and re-enter. Note the top speeds are reducing each time. If continuing doesn't lower the bots' speed try repeating and vice a versa.

Once ready to go, do not set a high top speed at the line, tilt B will give better control to feather the throttle once at the 1st place' speed, this takes a bit of practice, smashing the top speed will increase the AI.
Minimal

Start / End Strategy

The player has # days to complete the 4 stages, the event is 4 days x 24 hours. The first stage will start the time the player starts it, the last stage will end 4 x 24 hours later. As stage 01 is normally straight forward and can be completed without an upgrade or service, it can be started late in the day, it doesn't matter if stage 01 isn't completed the first day, it can continue the following day. The next stage 02, will unlock at midnight providing stage 01 is completed, stage 03 will unlock at midnight the following day, and so on up to stage 4, in total there will be 4 x 24 hours = 96 hours to complete all stages.

You need to choose the best time for you to start Jaguar Legacy: XJ220 event, or more importantly when is the best time for you to end the event!


RR3 Michael P wrote (pre-race tip):
I wouldn't recommend starting the event on the first day, Saturday August 21st, as many racers, who start as soon as the event opens, complain about bugs, which FM then fix! Instead leave the start a day or two and let other people do the bug testing. Also the tips and details can be filled in by the early adopters, so starting a day or two later gives a better heads up.

Ideally, for racers who are busy Monday to Friday and have the weekend free, the best day and time to start is as late as possible Wed, as long as it's before midnight, meaning stage 4 of the event can be completed over two days, the following Saturday and Sunday. Unfortunately there maybe a short time to start this event! It maybe only open for 1 week, as the next event is expected Saturday August 27th. Keep an eye out for adverts to start the event and watch for a countdown to start. Once started the event can be run, even if it's closed to new racers.

Cloud Save / Restore

See the Firemonkeys website for full details on cloud save:

Firemonkeys.com.au Cloud Save FAQ

Firemonkey wrote:
Real Racing 3 automatically uploads your save data to the Cloud Servers once every 12 Hours. This means that if you have lost your save data, you can easily restore your previous game progress (including your purchases) and also transfer this save data between devices using the Cloud Save feature.

During events you can use the Cloud Save and Restore feature to your advantage. Before you start every event, manually do a Cloud Save, if you lose do a cloud restore, this will save a long service after the longer, endurance, cup and NASCAR events.

Once you win do another cloud save before you continue the next event, see the FAQ on Firemonkey's website:

It is very important to wait for the screen to display last updated seconds (or minutes) ago. If you have a message stating backup failed, wait another minute, a wheel will turn in the bottom right corner, the message will show last updated seconds (or minutes) ago and Backup to Cloud button will be greyed out too.

If backup still failed, return to the login screen, log off, wait 10 seconds and log on once more, click continue, wait 30 seconds for the login to complete, then try to backup once more.

If you still have problems: log off, then turn aeroplane mode on, wait 10 seconds, turn aeroplane mode off, wait 30 seconds for the wifi to reconnect, login, click continue, wait 30 seconds for the login to complete, then try to backup once more.

The final thing to try, force close the RR3 app, then with the Wifi on, relaunch RR3, then try to backup once more. If this still doesn't work, the FM server is probably having problems, again.

You can also use this technique to save on spending with gold, for example if you want to spend 1 gold on the mechanic, if you win, the mechanic will be used and the car condition will be maintained, but if you don't come first the gold is lost and the car condition will be reduced, if you cloud restore the car will be returned to it previous state and the gold spend (or even free mechanic) returned.

Note: Before you cloud restore, it is important to login into the same Social Profiles you had previously connected to Real Racing, when cloud saving. Especially if multiple Social Profiles are used!


FAQ

How can I service the car when I already finished the day?

If the final car service is missed, after the final event on the day, the soonest it can service is at midnight (local time), when the next stage opens.

The Target is too High, How do I Reduce it?

When the speed or time or distance is too high or fast or long, there are several things that can be done to reduce the target

Make sure you cloud save before you start and after a handful of failed attempts try a cloud restore and retry the next method. Sometimes the AI is still reduced after the restore.

  • Try offline - if you've been online, you must do a force close too.
  • Try online - sometimes the AI target is different.
  • Try repeat, repeat , repeat, again lose by a big margin, don't come higher than 4th.
  • Try losing by a big margin, but don't retry, instead complete and then re-enter the race - this takes more time but works.

Sorry this takes so much time, but the AI will reduce. With a cloud restore it's quicker than a long service!

For example, I tried 11 times to reach 1st place:

The Game / Le Mans Keeps crashing

RR3 Michael P wrote:
If you are having problems loading Le-Mans: Le Mans is the biggest data track to load, close the game, go off line (aeroplane mode), try a complete shutdown (hold the power for 10 seconds, I think), then start back up, launch the game and turn the Heads-up Display (HUD) off. This helps on my Hudl.

I read a post suggesting using the RR3 Graphics app (AKA RR3 GFX) available from the Google Play Store, (then automatically updating it from their website). The poster advised Le Mans used to crash, but when the graphics is set low, using this app, it loads and plays fine:

When is the last time I can start this Event?

The event started August 20th, with a 5 day entry time, meaning ~August 25th. However the next special event, Samsung Championship Limited Time Series (LTS) to win a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3, is expected to start ~August 27th. If this event is started on August 25th, the last two stages, held over 27th and 28th will overlap that LTS.

The way FM display the date isn't very clear, they use a rounding factor. The days and hours remaining, to start, is changing at mid day or on the half hour. The closing date and time displayed is a cautious closing date and time. Keep an eye out for adverts to start the event and watch for a countdown to start. Once started the event can be run, even if it's closed to new racers.

Will this event be added to the race career?

FM went though a spell of adding special events to the racing career, the last time a special event was added was September 2015 v3.6, NASCAR Academy was added directly to the NASCAR career, without previously being released as a Time Limited Event (TLE). Previous to that was April 2015 v3.3, with Redline: Origins and MotorFiesta 1. It is therefore unlikely this event will be added to the racing career.

Will the car be available to win in the future?

The Jaguar XJ220 is available to win if the challenge is completed in 5 days, after August 25th the Jaguar XJ220 can be purchased.

Can I buy the car?

The Jaguar XJ220 is available in the Supercar Classic Clash bonus series part of the Legend category. This vehicle was added in the Jaguar Update (v4.5.1) released in August 2016 and can be unlocked by earning ?? trophies in Supercar Classic Clash or by completing the Jaguar Legacy: XJ220 special event.

This vehicle can be acquired for 400 Icon Gold or 320 Icon Gold with showcase discount.

You have been lent a Jaguar XJ220.

All upgrades, customizations and VIP will remain on the car permanently, whether you acquire it from this event or buy it later.

What is the minimum PR / upgrades required

RR3 Michael P wrote (pre-race):
Since Generations, if the players car is far below the recommended PR level the bots run impossible times. Once the car is upgraded the bots return to normal times. Slowing the bots works, only when the PR requirements are close. Some goals have fixed top bots. Possible upgrade strategies:

No. Description Upgrade R$ Icon Gold

For Supercar Classic Clash the Jaguar XJ220 costs 320 Icon Gold for PR57.0 (3343333 -3 Engine & -1 Drivetrain & Suspension), @ 320 Icon Gold. The Ferrari F40 needs -1 Engine & Suspension @ 86 Icon Gold, for the same PR. The recommend car is therefore the F40, especially as it need -1 Engine for Classic Ferrari Showdown.

Reports

Bremm75 report:
Just a reminder: go SLOW in stage 1.1. In my experience sometimes you have to beat your prior race time. I turned all assists on and high, doing the lap at Silverstone in 56 seconds. Also, no upgrades.

Stage 1.2 you have to overtake a F40 five times and win.

Stage 1.3 has 2 laps in Silverstone International and you have to win below 2'12". It's doable with no upgrades (2'10"054 for me). Tilt B, TC off, steering and brakes low.

Jaguar Legacy 2.3 Speedsnap

I've managed to complete 2.3 with R$ upgrades. The key is to brake while going into the first corner, taking it wide, and then accelerate into the straight with minimal skidding.

  • Traction control: ON
  • Steering assist: None
  • Brake assist: None
  • Controls: Buttons Sensitivity: 10

Goal 2.4: Cup at Silverstone - The International Circuit [3 laps] - Win this race or place 2nd by a maximum distance of -200 yd (-182 m) - Recommended PR45.2


Reports

Bremm75 report:
Stage 2.1 maybe needs some bot management. Ivanov was +54 m then after some failing by aborting, Elias came with -39 m. 3 and 1/2 bars of damage.

Stage 2.2 consists in reaching 171 mph or 275 kph twice and winning a cup. It might NOT worth hiring the engineer, since you have two laps to go through. 10 bars of damage (left 3 and half green lit).

Stage 2.3 is a speed snap with no skidding rule. Bot management seems not working on this one. 231.68 kph is the highest speed by Tan. I drove gracefully and scored 232.11 kph. Took me only one damage bar. Left 2 greens lit and one green faded.

Stage 2.4 is a cup where you have to win against 20 Ferrari and 1 McLaren F1 or be 2nd within 200 yds or 182 m. Recommended PR is 45.2.

All done with PR 45.3, tilt B, low steering and brakes, TC off.

Reports

Chopyes report:
Stage 3.2 : I managed to do this by doing a U-turn and drive until the beginning of the straight line and then I had the whole straight line to do the job easily. (I hope my english is good enough to be understood...)

Bremm75 report:
Stage 3.1 is a two-lap cup at Indy Road Course. Be the 1st crossing the line at the the end of 1st lap, then get overtaken by the 2nd car, tailgate it for 20 seconds and then win in 1st. You may hire the Engineer to have no further servicing before the end in this stage.

Stage 3.2 is a Speed Record without going off track. Tip: right after starting, go back to the intersection where you get back to the oval section and then move towards to the finish line, avoiding to skid. You probably can go 300+ kph but bear in mind that you just need to be the 1st (you don't have to beat Chuck Yager's speed record).

Stage 3.3 is a rolling start Elimination against 7 McLaren F1 without collisions and average speed over 171 kph. A bit tricky with only R$ upgrades, but doable. Be at least the 2nd before getting back to the oval section and go flat out right after the last banking. Don't get nervous while in 1st since your opponent will be tailgating you until the end.

Stage 3.4 is a four-lap cup at Indy Speedway and you have to overlap Michael or overtake him 17 times before starting the 2nd lap. Both are doable with only R$ upgrades.

All done with PR 45.3, tilt B, low steering and brakes, TC off.

LuxCal Rewport
3.1 is easy. The 20 seconds of tailgating does not have to be continuous. I was able to do it with only R$ upgrades (PR 45.3).

3.2 is also easy, but I had to back up a ways at the start to do it.

3.3 also a breeze, despite being about three points below the recommended PR.

3.4 took a couple of tries. The car was trashed by this point, and I was unable to lap Michael within four laps. I tried overtaking 17 times in one lap instead, but I couldn't quite get there. Serviced the car, and found I was still not quite able to lap him, but now I was able to do the 17 overtakes within a lap. That seems the easier way to go, for me at least. For a better driver, you can probably lap Michael; I did come close.


RR3'tyoloo Report:
Complete Stage 3 without major problems with only R$ upgrades.

3.1 Get to 1st by 2nd lap, tailgate for 20 sec and win

No problems getting to 1st position after the first few corners, dropped back to 2nd at the start of the 2nd lap. As usual, the bots are slow in the corners and with the continuous timer, 20 secs gained and finished in 1st place.

3.2 Speed Record

Target to beat : Santos 296 kph. Drove a normal lap and could only manage 290 kph. Did a 180 and drive in the opposite direction at the start till you reach the barrier to get the maximum distance in the straight. Reached 298 before the 1st corner.

3.3 Average 171 kph elimination

2 attempts on this goal. Failed to catch the 1st bot fast enough the 1st try. 2nd attempt, got to 1st place just before the end of first place and managed the race from there with minor collisions but not serious enough to fail the goal. Cutting corners might work better but i did not try it as the car has terrible handling and grip atm.

3.4 Lap Michael or overtake him 17 times

Decided to go with the overtaking as it seemed more fun to do and with only 7 upgrades, it may not be fast enough to lap the E-type. First few tries are to get familiar with Michael's driving style. Usually managed to get about 15 tries before reaching the finish line. Most of the overtakes are done on the straights, he may even try to pit you so try not to race side-by-side. Overall, a good Day 3.

Reports

---Conclusion---

Won the car using only R$ upgrades 7/27, skipped 4.3 earning 30 gold overall. Suggested experienced drivers skipping 4.3, new drivers skipping 4.3, 4.4, 4.1 and 4.5 (in difficulty descending order).

Suggested do NOT get gold upgrades. Tried doing upgrades to 3331111 costing 108 gold just to pass 4.3, cheaper just to skip using 20 gold, saving 88 gold.


Bremm75 report:
I hope you won't get disappointed as I got at stage 4. The whole day is a gold trap, to be honest. So, I skipped all goals. Taking in account the 50 gold I won, I "lost" only 50 gold.

Stage 4.1 can be done easily, but the catch lies in the details: I had no room enough to max out the engine without going off-track.

Stage 4.2 has the same issue as 4.1 and a "bonus" of no skidding. I finished in 4th place.

Stage 4.3 as stated above, can put your coins all of a sudden down the drain. I finished in 8th place.

Stage 4.4 might be doable with only R$ upgrades, but so far I just got angry and skipped before tearing up my tablet, since I have no hair to pull out of my head.

Stage 4.5 might be doable too, but I lost 4 times near the end, so I skipped it too. Too grumpy to keep trying. One may try driving like a mad man, cutting corners and overtaking every car like a getaway. That was the best approaching I've found so far. By the way, no TS040 at 4.5 -- it's XJ220.

I wish you guys luck. Don't let the monkeys put you down.

GreetingsfromBA report:
Just finished with 1131313

4.1 overtake bots before mulsane and hit the wall after first mulsane straight - possible without offtrack - with breaking after reaching the speed. 

4.2 just a clean race 

4.3 asked for the gold upgrades. Breaking point is halfway between yellow blue boarder and the shadow of the sign, then cut it tight with wide exit from the turn to reach 298 something 

4.4 success after first attempt,again you need to overtake the mclarens before first straight and then it's quite a drag to victory. I've only added traction control to porsche curves as it felt more stable (as always I'm using solely button control, mostly with SA high, BA low , haha). 

4.5 after few attempts I've tried the never-exceed-90-sec strategy and did it in the very first try 


Good luck from Slovakia!
