The Finish Line Box is a Pro Kit Box in Asphalt 8: Airborne. Introduced with the Fast Lane Update, it is rewarded for finishing highlighted races and has extraordinarily high frequencies of legendary cards and engines.

During the Showdown Update, it did not grant i3 and V12 MPI Engine cards as well as Mid-Tech and Advanced Tech, and was made available only for VIP players. Since September 2019 (during the Sixth Anniversary Mini Update), the box grants i3 Engines, V12 MPI Engines, Mid-Tech and Advanced Tech again.

The Finish Line Box is also known for nearly always displaying wrong official drop rates.

Availability

Finish Line Box Race Mode 1
Race modes that reward Finish Line Boxes are marked with a small icon. So far the Finish Line Box has only been granted for finishing multiplayer races. Upon its introduction, the amount of boxes a player could get was 3 per day. After the end of the Spring Fling 3 Multiplayer Season, players only got 1 or 2 boxes instead of 3[1] which turned out to be dependent on a player's VIP level.[2] The Showdown Update made the box VIP-only:[3]
  • Non-VIP: 0 boxes (formerly 1)
  • VIP: 2 boxes

The loading screens of races granting Finish line boxes show an additional banner at the top. If a player has got all boxes of a day, a timer is shown. Contrary to the A8Box Daily Kit Box Daily Kit Box, the timer counts down to 0:00 player's local time, so players can get 2 boxes per day no matter if they log in early or late.

Hidden rules

  • The Finish Line Box has the highest relative frequency of engines (46.19 %) besides engine-only boxes.
  • The box does not grant Hot Wheels Engines.
  • Since the Showdown Update, it does not seem to grant Mid-Tech and Advanced Tech any more.

Analysis

Statistics

Deviation history

Cards by rarity in Finish Line Boxes
  • Showdown Update: Again, after first converging to the changed drop rates of this update, the real statistical outcomes do not tend to stabilize close to the official values, but keep deviating. The drop rates of rare and common cards are wrong.
Cards by rarity in Finish Line Boxes (4.2.0)
  • 2019 Spring Update: Official drop rates have been changed. Around May 17, 2019 (sample size 243), when the graphs had finally approached the official drop rates after an erratic course, they started to diverge again. This can indicate that either the box content has been changed several times or that it changes somewhat periodically. In any case, the official drop rates were wrong almost all the time. The frequencies did not even tend to approach them.
Cards by rarity in Finish Line Boxes (pre 4.2.0)
  • Fast Lane Update: The relative frequencies converged to the official drop rates until March 22, 2019 (sample size 250). After this date, common and legendary values started to diverge again, which is a hint that the internal composition has probably been changed without recalculating the drop rates.

The Finish Line Box has by far the highest relative frequency of engines of all common boxes in the game.

Even though the box has a lower drop rate of common cards than other boxes, its frequency of V8 Engines is considerable.

Tech

Former versions of the box used to grant good amounts of Advanced Tech. This has been changed with the Showdown Update. It does not seem to grant neither Mid-Tech nor Advanced Tech now.

Following an official 2019 Spring Update announcement,[4] it does not contain bike tech any more.

Parts

The 2019 Spring Update has also changed the box's high drop rate of bike parts to zero (previously 25 to 30 %).
