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 The Sixth Element 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.

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 8 days to complete the 8 stages, the event is 8 days x 24 hours. The first stage will start the time the player starts it, the last stage will end 8 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 8, in total there will be 8 x 24 hours = 192 hours to complete all stages.

The start time is short, only within 5 days, so must be started by Thursday 17th March.

For example:

Start Thu @ 7:30 PM the event will end 8 days x 24 hours later, Friday @ 7:30 PM,

You need to choose the best time for you to start The Sixth Element 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, 13-March, 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.

Unfortunately there is a short time to start this event! It must be started by Thursday 17th, as the next event is expected shortly after The Sixth Element ends. 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 countdown to start the event has already started, Thursday 17th.

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 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is available to win if the challenge is completed in 8 days, after 19-March the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento can be purchased.

Can I buy the car?

The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is available in the Tour Del Toro bonus series under Campionato Scuderia Ferrari, part of the Legend category. This vehicle was added in the Daytona 500 Update (v4.1.5) released in February 2016 and can be unlocked by earning 16 trophies in Tour Del Toro or by completing The Sixth Element.

This vehicle can be acquired for 850 Icon Gold or 680 Icon Gold with showcase discount. It will be unlocked 19th March.

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.

FYI Tour Del Toro location, if already unlocked it is visible, otherwise it will be unlocked once the car is won.

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 12 hours for the first stage and 24 hours for some stage 2 upgrades, 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)

RomGuyony has calculated the requirements to reach 100% of Tour Del Toro, PR83.0, the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento needs 366 Icon Gold upgrades, see Upgrades Strategy For 100% Completion for full details.

PR 76.2 - This event seemed to be rather easy, probably because it's the first time I employed proper bot management. Then I used the Sesto to do the Overtaking Challenge - One man team and I came in top 9000 earning me 500K. Used this to purchase and upgrade cars in other series.

Goal 1.3: Cup at Dubai Autodrome – Oval Circuit [3 laps] - Complete 3 laps within 85 seconds despite Ahmed's medding

RR3 Michael P wrote:
Car was pulling left and right, with some damage, still easy, I braked for a second before the line.

RR3 Master Racer wrote:
1.3 -Complete 3 laps within 85 seconds despite Ahmed's meddling: As goal describes, Ahmed tried to be a hero, turned out to be a zero. Car is slow, has damaged steering randomly pulling left or right. Don't be caught out by steering pulling right on a left turn and vice versa. Should be done with 5 seconds left.

Another tip: If you reach 1st place very early, fall back to last. Then PIT other cars and help the last placed bot to 1st. Can be funny as the 1st bot closes in very quickly and you have to hold them up !

Have fun!

Goal 4.1: Hunter at Autodromo Nazionale Monza (Morning) - Road Course - Win this event – recommended PR 73.2

RR3 Michael P wrote:
I had a target -200yd, I actually reached the Silvia on the second to last straight, so tapped the brake going down the final straight to win with -180 yds. I bought the Gold upgrades for Engine, Drivetrain, Body, Exhaust and by mistake Suspension, and started the 2 day upgrades for Engine, Drivetrain, Body and Exhaust. Upgrade should be -4 Engine, -1 Suspension & Brakes for PR83.0. for Tour Del Toro for 100%. The car is currently PR 79.5, so these goals are easy for this car, I have to win by small margins, otherwise the AI will increase considerably.

Goal 4.2: Cup at Autodromo Nazionale Monza - Road Course [2 laps] - Win with an average speed of 136 mph (218 kph) in the first lap or 126 mph (202 kph) on the 2nd lap – recommended PR 73.7

RR3 Michael P wrote:
The goal appears to be the wrong way around, I would have expected the low figure on the first lap, as it’s a standing start, I managed 136 mph on lap 1, I may regret that. I passed the bots into turn 1 down the right hand side, didn’t even need to cut the grass on the right into turn 1. I ran out of time to run 4.3, the car was still in good condition, serviced anyway, ready for after work.


Goal 4.3: Speed Record at Autodromo Nazionale Monza - Road Course - Win this event – recommended PR 74.1

RR3 Michael P wrote:
No problem with PR79.5, I reached 1st on the second straight, after the start, then tapped the brake, so not to increase the AI


Goal 4.4: Cup at Autodromo Nazionale Monza - Road Course [2 laps] - Do not skid on the first lap, then skid 5 times on the final lap (and win) – recommended PR 74.5

RR3DougB wrote:
Stage 4 complete, R$ upgrades only. Did 4-4 with only 2 red bars on a unserviced car. Did not need to buy an engineer today. Did all the goals without servicing the car. Good Luck!!!!

RR3 Michael P wrote:
I had breakes set high on lap 1, I still reached 1st in turn 1 and had a big lead by lap 2, I turned brakes and TC off, skidded 5 times, then started to hold up the bots, I won by a small margin. Serviced ready for tomorrow.

Goal 5.1: Speed Snap at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps — Win this Speed Snap event without going off track - Recommended PR74.9

RR3 Michael P wrote:
Standard speed snap, the top of Spa. Tapped the brake to win by small margin. Tilt B also helps.


Goal 5.2: Cup at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps [2 laps] - Do a donut and then win the race - Recommended PR75.4

RR3DougB wrote:
5-2 requires doing one donut and win in 2 laps, donuts are easier to do with Tilt B and brake assists off, go to 1st turn where there is more open space to do the donut. After donut is complete you can pause and change your settings back to your driving preference.

RR3 Michael P wrote:
I messed up the donut, at the start, so went to turn one and then tried, no problem, even with buttons for controls, then took my time chasing down the two other cars.


Goal 5.3: Head To Head at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps [3 laps] - Win this event by overtaking the 'boss' without going off track (Rolling Start) - Recommended PR75.8

RR3DougB wrote:
5-3 do not buy a engineer, all you have to do is stay on the track and pass the bot and it's over. I did it within 25 seconds, 3 laps is not needed!!!!

RR3 Michael P wrote:
I managed to pass the boss at turn 2, instant green flag.


Goal 5.4: Cup at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps [1 lap] - Win with a qualifying time of at least 2:20 and cross the finish line over 143 mph (230 kph) - Recommended PR76.3

RR3DougB wrote:
5-4 win within 2:20 and cross the finish line at 143 mph, 2:20 is no problem with R$ upgrades only, actually I did this with 10 seconds to spare driving very conservatively, oops to fast!!! 143 at the finish was no problem.

Good Luck!

RR3DougB wrote:
6-2: 1 lap - win race going in the opposite direction with diabled steering and brake assists - I use tilt B for these backwards events and TC off - this car does not do dounuts well so at the start I braked and turned hard left, then gassed it and turned hard right, took me 2 trys to complete. Just like driving a new track, I used the gas pedal and brakes to control speed, used HUD map as guide and did not have to force the issue, just maintained a good speed and won.

RR3 Michael P wrote:
I messed up my first attempt, I took the National course and ended up the wrong side of a barrier at the hairpin, then had a head on collision!

The upgrades have completed on the Sesto Elemento PR82.0, even so I messed up the first attempt, skidding wide at the final turn, missing the target by 1MPH.

Continue to follow methods to slow bots down


Goal 7.1: Cup at Daytona International Speedway - Road Course - win this event with 10 overtakes and no skidding- Recommended 78.7

RR3 Michael P wrote:
Passed 9 bots with ease, my car is PR82.0, let one pass and then re-passed to make it 10 overtakes. Won by a small margin.

RR3DougB wrote:
Stage 7 complete, R$ upgrades only.

7-1: Win this event with 10 overtakes and no skidding - usually in no skidding events I use TC to make it easier, but my R$ only car was to slow with TC on. So with TC off I had to race fast and clean, but not overdriving the corners. Passed all bots just before the turn 5, let one bot pass and repassed the bot in turn 7.


RR3 Michael P wrote (in reply to a post for help for 7.1):
If you pass 1st, try to PIT the bot, then let the slower, 2nd place bot pass, hopefully you can re-take the lead vs 2nd bot.

ME7 wrote:
I do the same thing Michael just mentioned when the bots are too fast. Get in 1st place. Let 2nd START to overtake you then pit him (spin him out). Repeat until you have enough overtakes.

Just like at the finish line, you just have to be a bumper in front of someone to take their position. That's why you don't have to let the bot clear you, you just have to let him next to you. If you haven't pitted lots; the closer they are to clearing you, the easier it is to spin them.


Goal 7.2: Autocross at Daytona International Speedway (Evening) - Road Course - Win this Autocross event - Recommended PR 79.3

RR3 Michael P wrote:
Standard Autocross, I tapped the brake on the final stretch to win by a small margin.

RR3DougB wrote:
7-2: Win this Autocross event - took two attempts, 1st try I did not push it and came up a 1/2 second short. 2nd try I pushed it, no bot management allowed today with R$ only car.


Goal 7.3: Cup at Daytona International Speedway (Evening) - Road Course (Rolling start) [2 laps]- Win this event leading by 110 yd (100 m) on the first lap or 580 yd (530 m) on the 2nd - Recommended PR 79.7

RR3 Michael P wrote:
I had over 200 yds by the final chicane, so tapped the brakes to lower the gap slightly going towards the line, green flag for 180 yards on lap 1.

RR3DougB wrote:
7-3: Win this event by leading by 110 yd (100 m) on the first lap or 580 yd (530 m) on the 2nd - no holding back pitted the 1st place bot just pass the "Bus Stop" and went on to win at about 120 yards on the 1st lap.


Goal 7.4: Drag Race at Daytona International Speedway (Night) - Speedway - Win this Drag Race event - Recommended PR 80.0

RR3 Michael P wrote:
Standard Drag Race vs the top three offline bots, the car still had 7 good bars of condition. I was able to catch them in 2nd gear and let the third gear red line, until the bot matched the distance ~10yds, then did a final shift to win by 0.2s

RR3DougB wrote:
7-4: Win this Drag Race event - had 2 perfect and 1 almost perfect light and won, used the counting method.


RR3 Michael P wrote:
If the bots are tight it is possible to wait for the three red lights, pause, one thumb on resume another on pause, quickly resume > pause, quickly resume > pause, continue until the green lights display, the game should be on pause, reposition your thumbs press resume > go. The launch should be near to perfect, try to make perfect shifts. If you have a big lead let the car red line, in 2nd or 3rd gear, so you win by a small margin. (tip originally from STVC-S03 Stage 5 Wiki contributor [185.18.60.4] )


RR3DougB wrote:
Counting Method: When the light bar shows up the red lights turn one at a time, so that is the count rate 1st red is "one", 2nd red is "two", third red is "three". When the lights turn green is the "key" count

So for the first race the "key" count is "four" If you win the first race the second race "key" count is "five" If you win the second race the third race "key" count is "six"

If you lose the key counts change and I have not tried to figure them out. I force close if I lose and start over. It takes a little practice. Today I hit the start button on my count twice so perfectly I could hardly believe my eyes!!!!! :)

Good Luck!!!!


Goal 7.5: Cup at Daytona International Speedway (Night) - Road Course [3 laps] - Win this event without taking damage - Recommended PR80.4

RR3 Michael P wrote:
The car had 5 red bars now, I was still able to pass the bots, the bottom 30 parked in bends, so I could cut the grass or pass outside, I had 1st in sights on the final lap and cought the barrier into turn 1. Instant red flag. The car was then trashed. I tried several more times, each time either hitting a barrier or ramming into the back of a slow bot. After about 5 attempt I had a good run, bots AI had slowed. I was in first by the final lap, even with a trashed car, so maintained a small lead.

RR3DougB wrote:
7-5: Win this event without taking damage 3 laps - On the 1st lap I started with high brake assists, after reaching the "Bus Stop" I switched the brake assist to low, was in 9th place after 1st lap, 4th place after 2nd lap, passed the last bot on turn 6. This is the only race today that I won by a small margin on purpose. All the others were won by small margins because that is all my R$ only car could do.

Good Luck!!!!!

RR3 Michael P wrote:
My car is PR82.0 [Android] [NOX], I managed to take the lead on lap 1, and PIT the leader, then maintained a small lead, I had to tap the brake on the final straight to keep the distance to 2nd below 110 yd.

My Stage 8 recap

My car - All R$ upgrades only, 11/28, PR 76.2.

My driving mode - Tilt A, TC On, Steering Low, Brakes Low unless otherwise specified

I am on Android and I do utilize the techniques I've learned here to perform a moderate amount of bot management, just to ensure that I'm able to win these Special Event cars with a minimal amount of GC spent.

I did actually complete this last night, but I was unable to to type up this recap on my phone, so I waited until I was on my laptop this morning. So, this is all from memory with screenshots I took to guide me.

Stage 8.1 - I had to race this one twice because on my first attempt, I got too greedy and tried to finish too close to 28yds (25m) and the 2nd place car was quick and caught up which failed me. On my 2nd attempt, I won it fairly easily and didn't make the same mistake.


Goal 8.2: Speed Snap at Silverstone - The National Circuit - Win this Speed Snap without skidding - Recommended 81.5

RR3 Michael P wrote:
The speed snap is round turn 2 onto the back straight, I tapped the brake to win by a small margin.

Stage 8.2 - I beat this event with a speed of 158.01mph (254.3kph) compared to a goal of 157.86mph (254kph). I don't recall this race much, I just have my screenshot showing the results


Goal 8.3: Cup at Silverstone - The National Circuit [3 laps] - Tailgate by 55 yd (50 m) in the first lap and then win in the final lap. Recommended 81.9

NOTE: The instructions on the game are ambiguous. In order to pass the test, you MUST BE in second place behind M and be LESS THAN 55yd (50m) behind him when you complete Lap 1.
Then you MUST WIN the race in Lap 3.

what exactly are they asking us to do? Stay 55 yards behind the first place car? Stay 55 yards behind the last place car? I've tried both and racing normally and every method fails when I cross the finish line on lap 1. --- Same here..

MadMax6396 wrote:
Same for me. On the first attempt I tried staying more than 167 yards behind the leader so that I could see how close (far) I was. "Fail". On the last 4 attempts I tried staying more than 167 yards behind the last racer, even more than 400 yards on the last attempt, and I still "Failed". What gives??

RR3G'hamO. wrote:
To tailgate an opponent drive as close as you can to them, ie drive inside their exhaust / boot / trunk / bumper-to-bumper for the 1st lap. Then finish 1st at the end of the race.

MadMax6396 wrote:
It says "stay no closer than 55 yd (50m) in the first lap", which implies any distance greater than/equal to 55 yards. If it is =55 yards, how do you know if the distance-to-the-next-racer only displays when you are at least 167 yards? Which racer am I supposed to tailgate? Any opponent? Leader? Last racer?

Jeebus wrote:
Took 2 hours to figure it out. They probably word it wrong so people would use gold to skip. You need to be in 2nd place during first lap and car behind you needs to be more than 55yd away.

RR3 Michael P wrote:
Thanks to the tips already left I managed this first attempt, I reached Magnus (M) on the back straight and sat on his bumper, I thought he got away from me to cross the line, but I must have been within 55 yd. there is no distance to M only the car behind. I passed M and PIT him, then maintained a small lead.

Montoym wrote:
Stage 8.3 - This one caused me frustration due to the ambiguous goal description. I had to make several attempts before I was able to make it into the 2nd lap without failing. Eventually, I just made it up to 2nd place and was on M's *ss to make sure I was within 55yds (50m) and that worked. Once into the 2nd lap, I raced a normal race. I had no trouble keeping up and passing, so I took advantage and spun out M and tried to hold up the others. I ended up finishing with a time of 2:22.375 compared to 2nd at 2:22.703, not bad! For the record, M finished in 5th place in this event at 2:29.312 due to my PIT maneuver.


Goal 8.4: Speed Record at Silverstone - The National Circuit - Win this Speed Record event within 1 minute and without skidding - Recommended 82.4

RR3 Michael P wrote:
No U turn on this as there is a 1 minute counter, with PR82 I managed with brakes set low, on the back straight. I still had 6 red bars of condition.

Montoym wrote:
Stage 8.4 - This one caused me the most trouble of the day. I had actually surpassed the goal on my first attempt, but forgot about the no skidding restriction and I failed myself. After that, I had a hard time getting to the goal so I decided to go for the tried and true quit-retry method to bring down the goal. This did work, but was a slow process. Eventually, I was able to bring the goal down to 181.52mph (292.1kph), but it didn't seem to go any further from there. This took quite awhile since it only dropped about .3-.4mph each retry. Even at 181.52mph, it still took me a few attempts to pass it. I normally might disable TC in order to gain some acceleration for these events, but I was concerned about skidding so I left it on. It took me a few attempts, even at 181.52mph, but I did eventually beat it, if barely. I passed with a speed of 181.55mph!!

PopsRZ wrote:
PR78.0 - I started to reduce the speed, but it didn't seem like it was going down so left it at 185+. Could make the speed but not the turn without skidding. Finally decided to to hit the speed, brake hard but stay straight off the track. Ended up in the wall, but with no skidding. Got back on the track and finished within the 1 min. time requirement.

RR3DougB wrote:
8.4 - Win this Speed Record event within 1 minute and without skidding

How I Won this with R$ upgrades only PR 76.2 , I attained a 182.5 mph

Original speed to beat was 186.7 mph to high for my R$ upgrade only car. Used TSM to lower speed to be to 181.5 mph.

Assists: Steering Low, Brakes Low, TC off

Get a good run out the turn before longest straight, proceed down the straight and do not turn at the end of it. Instead watch your top speed, once you have reached your required speed hit the brakes but do not attempt to turn until car slows since you are now on the grass and the car will skid easily. Drive to the finish.

Note: Assist: Brakes off would also be a options

Good Luck!!!!


Goal 8.5: Cup at Silverstone - The Grand Prix Circuit [3 laps] - Win the Race with an average speed of 118mph (189kph) and no off track. Recommended 82.8

RR3 Michael P wrote:
I had 4 red bars of condition, still managed it after a couple of attempts, for off track, I managed to PIT M but was 122 mph average, the cars were faster than me in the straights, but slow in the corners.

Montoym wrote:
Stage 8.5 - Here's another event where I forgot what the restrictions were (it was about 2am when I was racing, forgive me lol). I raced the whole race forgetting that I had a speed average to keep up so I spent the whole time holding up and PITing opponents and was surprised when I saw the fail banner, Whoops! So, on my 2nd attempt, I instead made sure to just work to get my speed up and didn't worry about bot management. I stayed in 1st place easily and took my average speed up to about 129mph (208kph) and then waited at the finish line for the average to drop. I finished with the average right at 118mph (189kph) and 12.5sec ahead of M in 2nd place.


Goal 8.6: Head To Head at Silverstone - The Grand Prix Circuit (Rolling Start) [2 laps] - Win this event whilst overtaking 5 times with no damage or off track -Recommended 82.8

RR3 Michael P wrote:
This took a few attempts, with a trashed car, Magnus (M) was faster on the straights, and as no corner cutting or contact is allowed, it was all down to the brakes, after spotting the braking points with brakes low, I turned brakes and TC off and managed to pass in the turns, as soon as I passed I let Magnus overtake and then take him again in the next turn, slow hairpin turns were the best. Good luck all.

Stage 8.6 - Last event, so I just went all out and didn't worry about bot management. I spent the first half of the first lap taking care of my 5 overtakes. These are pretty easy, just pass, slow, pass, slow, pass, etc. I had no trouble catching Magnus in the corners and even on some of the straights when I got a good exit. After getting my 5 overtakes, I just raced my race. I finished with a time of 3:23.878 compared to Magnus at 3:36.367.

Car won, once again with no GC spent!! I can't say how thankful I am that I found this site. Since I did, I've won virtually every Special Event car with only R$ upgrades. The only exceptions were for events where there were drag races requiring mandatory GC upgrades (thankfully, these were for cheaper cars and the upgrades were reasonable).

Here are a few screenshots documenting my win, including one showing the car in my garage with just the R$ upgrades (11/28).
