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:

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.

Start / End Strategy

The player has 5 days to complete the 5 stages, the event is 5 days x 24 hours. The first stage will start the time the player starts it, the last stage will end 5 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 5, in total there will be 5 x 24 hours = 120 hours to complete all stages.

For example:

Start Tue @ 7:30 PM the event will end 5 days x 24 hours later, Sunday @ 7:30 PM,

You need to choose the best time for you to start Speedrush TV Challenge - Season 3 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, Sun 3rd January 2016, 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 Tuesday, as long as it's before midnight, meaning stage 5 of the event can be completed over two days, the following Saturday and Sunday. It maybe only open for one week, as the car is avilable to purchase on 7th January and as the next release is expected Mid January. 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?

It maybe only open for one or two weeks, as the next release is expected Mid January

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.

Update 3-Jan: Adverts are showing to start within 4 days, putting the last day as Wednesday 6th or Thursday 7th ,January , depending on FM rounding. Once the challenge is started it can be run. It will then take 5 days to run the 5 stages, putting a latest end date of Monday 11th or Tuesday 12th, January. I wouldn't be surprised if the next release (v4.1) is around that date.

It's normal to have the car unlock at or around the same time as the challenge can be first completed, 7th January.

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 McLaren 12C Spider is available to win if the challenge is completed in 5 days, after 7th January the McLaren 12C Spider can be purchased.


Can I buy the car?

The McLaren 12C Spider is available in Spider Showdown located in legend career underneath Spirit Of Ferrari. This vehicle was added in the Hypercars Update (v4.0) released in November 2015

This vehicle can be acquired for 300 Icon Gold or 240 Icon Gold with showcase discount. It is sometimes available for ??? Icon Gold as a 'Get it Now' price.

Quote Natalia
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 2 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:
I play with two devices:

  • BlueStacks, PR57.4 11/28 (all R$ upgrades) + 10 Icon Gold Body + R$ Body. I paid 25 Icon Gold to skip the drag race 5.3, I started when the game first started on this device, as I wanted to capture the data and create my report.
  • Nvidia Shield K1, PR 59.3 14/28 (E1,D2,B3,S1,E4,B2,T&W1) cost 22 Icon Gold +R$, used the pause, resume, pause, go on green method. This device was four days behind (started late Tuesday), so I was able to upgrade the body and Exhaust a few days ago ready for 5.3.1, after I had read the tip.

Guys, I would just like to let you know that I managed to win the drag race in 5.3.1 with a car that had 20/28 upgrades...be aware though that 2 of them were upgrades 3 (GC) and 4 (R$) of Suspension, which I tacked on before the race, but both of them provided to be absolutely useless as they didnt improve my time at all.

So more like 18/28 upgrades, them being:

ENG4, DRT3, BOD3, SUS3 (like I said, unnecessary, SUS1 would be enough), EXH4, BRK 2, T&W 1

To sum it up, all tier 1 R$ upgrades + 2 GC Engine upgrades + 1 subsequent R$ Engine upgrade (that takes 1 day to finish) + 1 GC Exhaust upgrade + 2 subsequent R$ Exhaust upgrades (last one taking 12h to finish) + 1 GB Body upgrade and subsequent R$ Body upgrade (also 12h from what I remember)

Total 18/28 needed to get something like 9.5 against auralpod's 9.66 believe [5.3 Drag Race]

I was going to skip but saw this idea of press menu, resume. I was on 17 upgrades but still was not getting there. Then rather than skip I paid for D3 and T2 at a cost of 28 GC compared to 25 to skip and whether thru those extra few minutes of practice or what, managed to get thru. Si I'm now on E4,D3,B3,S1,Ex4,Br2 and T2 costing 91 GC in all. I'm fine with that. Thanks for the idea. It should come in handy in future if FM repeat this nonsense!

  • 2.3.1 1st 138.0 MPH v 137.5 morkRING (offline bot #23), standard Speed Snap, already trashed, used 0 bar of damage.
  • 2.3.2
  1. Unable to reach 175 with damaged car, 0 upgrades, serviced.
  2. red flag for skidding off track, retry.
  3. 1st 177 MPH v 175 HoodooVoodoo (offline bot #6), the start finish straight isn't the longest! So a U turn at the start doesn't help, the 3rd straight under the bridge, near the end of the lap it, braked once I passed 1st, used 8 bar.
  • 2.4 1st 4:34 v 4:35 merrygold (offline bot #16), standard cup, held up and PIT the bots, used 11 (all) bars of damage, 0 remaining. Serviced.

Reward 5 Icon Gold

Stage 2 was also straightforward, as long as the car is serviced, even with 0 upgrades. Edit: As I paid Icon Gold to skip the service time last night, after creating this report I cloud restored, this morning I re-ran the from 2.3.1 onwards, I also purchased the remaining 2 level 2 R$ upgrades for drivetrain and brakes, they will take 6 hours R&D.

3.2 - Drag Race - did the all the R$ upgrades and the Body upgrade for 10GC (PR56.9) and was able to win it. Better than skipping it for 15GC . Also the upgrade opens another R$ body upgrade and it stays with you for the future. Winning time was 10.810

Thought I'd share this video I took, didn't really expect to win it so quickly, to be honest. Guess there's a bit of luck with it too :) On my second go on my main device, tried and failed quite a bit on the other one (that's quite low-quality, making starts very difficult). Shout-out to Darknezz for the bye in the first round.

4.2.2 - Elimination - 3rd vs modesto lingerfelter - not sure about the time but the race went on for 2 laps. used the same strategy as 4.2.1 to be on first position at the first turn and then let the first two bots pass me when only 2 opponents were left. So finished 3rd with unserviced car.
