Tips and FAQ History

This is the forth 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 Road To Le Mans 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 my 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:

Time Shifted Multiplayer (TSM)

Read the following about how the time shifted multiplayer affects the AI of the bots, why it's important to win by small margins and how to slow bots down:

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 bot's 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 bot's 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 bot's 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 bot's 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 bot's.

Once ready to go, get to 1st place as quickly as possible and try to slow the bot's 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 bot's 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 bot's 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 bot's 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 bot's time on the final screen, it is based on an average lap time, you can use it as a guide that the bot's 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's cup 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 bot's time is reducing. If continuing doesn't lower the bot's 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 1st place's speed.

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 speed's are reducing each time. If continuing doesn't lower the bot's 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 7 days to complete the 7 stages, the event is 7 days x 24 hours. The first stage will start the time the player starts it, the last stage will end 7 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 07, in total there will be 7 x 24 hours = 168 hours to complete all stages.

You need to choose the best time for you to start Ride The Storm 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, 10-Dec, 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 Sunday, as long as it's before midnight, meaning stage 07 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 two weeks, as the next event Reign Supreme is expected to start 24th December. 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

Car Service

How can I service the car when I already finished the day?
If you missed servicing your car after the final event on the day, the soonest you can service the car is at midnight.

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 loosing 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 showdown (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 exact date is unknown, however Reign Supreme is starting 24th December, if this event isn't started before that date it will not be possible to start. Historically there is a couple of days gap between events ending and new ones starting.


Will this event be added to the Series?

FM went though a spell of adding special events ot the series, the last time a special event was added was NASCAR Academy, previous to that was a year ago v3.0 with MotorFiesta 1, it is therefore unlikely this event will be added to the career.

Will the car be available to win in the future?

The Lamborghini HURACÁN LP 610-4 is available to win if the challenge is completed in 7 days, after 22nd December the Lamborghini HURACÁN LP 610-4 can be purchased.


Can I buy the car?

The Lamborghini HURACÁN LP 610-4 has been added to the International Power-Match series, located in the Elite racing career. It costs 450 Icon Gold or 360 Icon Gold with showcase discount, after 22nd December.

If you start to play the event, 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:
My recommendation is to start the upgrades as soon as the challenge start as they take ## minutes/hours, there is no need to wait for them to complete before doing continuing the events. As soon as level 1 upgrades are complete start level 2 upgrades. Normally only R$ upgrades are required, as long as you slow the bots, see Time Shifted Multiplayer and Methods to slow bots down)

RR3 Michael P wrote:
Many posted they completed the challenge with R$ upgrades only.

Tips about Ride The Storm Stage 01:

Guillejarque wrote:

First stage focuses on the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4. It doesn't have too much grip. You should take advantage from its top speed. Try to take all the corners nice and easy, it skids easily. Braking is pretty OK but acceleration isn't good.

Event 1.1: Cup at Autodromo Nazionale Monza - Road course - Win this event

RR3 Michael P wrote (pre-race tip):
Normally the first day is straight forward, and can be completed without upgrades, I recommend stage 1 upgrades. In these races the player will drive the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. The into mentions Monza.

Guillejarque wrote:

Pretty much a ride rather than a race; if you can't get lead by cutting the first chicane, try it in the next one, surely there you will find the first place.


Event 1.2: Cup at Autodromo Nazionale Monza - Juniour course - Finish any lap with an average speed of 100 mph (160 kph)

RR3 Michael P wrote (pre-race tip):
There is nothing about winning, so just cross the line with an average 100 mph (160 kph) speed, if the average is high slow down on the finish straight.

Guillejarque wrote:

You can try to stick behind some bot with your pace at Parabolica and then full throttle in the straight. Corners 1, 2& 3 are kinda difficult, the perfect racing line is inside-outside-inside.


Event 1.3: Cup at Autodromo Nazionale Monza - Road course - Win this event

RR3 Michael P wrote (pre-race tip):
Into mentions racing against a Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe, an inferior car, remember to win by a small margin.

Started on the left of the grid and made a sharp right at the first turn to cut of the leader. No trouble after that for me.

Win by the smallest margin. Once you have overtaken them all, slow the cars by blocking them on corners 7 and 8, the two hairpins.

Event 3.2: Cup at Circuit de Catalunya - Club Circuit [3 Laps] - Win this event OR skid for 6 seconds and come at least 6th

Skidding for 6 seconds is better for slowing the bots. Probably still using the Gallardo.

Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 : 3 Laps - Circuit De Catalunya
Turned off TC and was able to skid 6 seconds by the 2nd turn. Purposely came 6th to slow both downs instead of winning.Gallardo needed servicing after this race.

Guillejarque wrote:

There's a trick where supposedly you can slow down the bots as much as you want (till you get tired). Skid during turns 1, 2 and 3 of the 1st lap, doesn't matter if you go off-track. Then, when you've skid your 6 seconds, stop in front of 7th bot. Be patient.

This stage is much tougher than earlier stages. I had to quit & retry 4- 5 times. I would say this is the second most difficult race of Stage 07 after 7.4 because you can quit and retry the cup to slow the bots down which helps in winning the race. If you are not in the top 5 by the first straight in lap one, I would suggest restarting as top bots would pull away from you on the straights. The top bots do lap the other opponents in the last lap so they slow down giving you a chance to overtake them in the last lap.

Me 4.40.989 vs H Lavell 4.41.214 -Pitted Fyn Martyn ( he is a pain BOT), Car condition maintained since I had free engineer.

Endurance events and Elimination events are particularly good to slow the bot's down for future events, next best are Drag Race events, Autocross events and Speed Snap events, see methods to slow bots down.

HURACÁN [R$ Upgrades only (PR 56.3)] - Speed Snap (Road Course) / Autocross (Road Course) / Speed Snap (Junior Curse) - Fame - 400- R$- 2,250

I chose the Autocross. Easiest race of Stage 07.

Me 17.673 vs Target 18.845. Lost 1 bar of service.


Event 7.3: Cup at Autodromo Nazionale Monza - Road Course [3 Laps] - Win this race without running out of fuel

Choice of Gallardo/Gallardo GT3/ HURACÁN - 3 Laps - Monza - Fame - ? - R$- ?

Tilt B is mandatory for this race and I am beginning to hate FM forcing the control types on you now. Finish the race before you run out of fuel. I chose the Gallardo because it has better fuel economy (just kidding). I used the GT3 (PR 56.2) and had lot of fuel left when I finished the race but used up all bars of the GT3. Did not service, all the races after this in Stage 07 are with the HURACÁN. Second easiest race of Stage 07 though I found it tough as am no used to Tilt B.

Me 5.30.749 vs Fyn Martin 5.33.945


Event 7.4: Cup at Autodromo Nazionale Monza - Junior Course [1 Lap] - Win while achieving a Top Speed of 180 mph (290 kph)

I found this the most difficult race of Stage 07. Need a top speed of 180mph in one lap .I tried at least 10 times but always crossed the finish line at an agonizing 179mph . So I decided to slow the bots down as much as I can , pitted Magnus at the start of the race on first turn , then on the first straight turned of all assists and let the car hit 180mph and bounced sideways into the wall . The bounce of the wall threw me back near the track where I could make it back in time. Don’t ram the wall head on, ram it sideways.

Me 0.52.505 vs Magnus 0.52.708

Just a note of caution: for some of us (me at least using an Ipad2iOS 8.4.1), it is not possible to slow down times by quit/retry as it was in the past. It's strange because I know others can (I've seen them do it on youtube for Event 7.1. Throughout Day 7 events, it was impossible to slow down bot times (yes, I did give up after 40 quit/retries!). So I spent about 120 GC to upgrade, I just barely won this Event 7.4 with 15/28 Upgrades! Then since slowing bots did not work, I was forced to spend 3 x 35 GC just to finish the Event and earn the car. In the end, about 225 GCs for a rather crappy car! Hope you have better luck slowing down the bots!


Event 7.5: Cup at Autodromo Nazionale Monza - Junior Course [1 Lap] - Win this race while crossing the finish line at no more than 84 mph (136 kph)

HURACÁN [R$ Upgrades only (PR 56.3)] - 1 Lap - Monza - Fame - 400 - R$- 2,520

Pitted Magnus at the start and Slowed down at the end to cross at less than 84mph, I won by less than 50 yards. Lost 3 service bar. I think I had slowed down bots enough in 7.1 and 7.4 so had enough time to brake. Got it in the first try. Third hardest race of Stage 07 after 7.4 and 7.1

Me 0.52.241 vs Magnus 0.52.429


Event 7.6: Cup at Autodromo Nazionale Monza - Road Course [3 Laps] - Win with an average speed of 124 mph (198 kph)

HURACÁN [R$ Upgrades only (PR 56.3)] - 3 Laps - Monza - Fame - 2,600 - R16,965

I think the final race was relatively easy, I would say in order of difficulty 7.4 > 7.1 > 7.5 > 7.6 > 7.3 > 7.2

I drove normally, no pitting or retrying. First lap was at 124 mph, Second lap was at 125 ,Third Lap at 127mph . Lost 3 service bar.

Me 5.03.271 vs Magnus 5.11.227
