Tips / Warnings

v4.8

v4.3

  • Test .022. has a bug where up to 2 Quality Checks collected on the track, and the Quality Check from completing the Main Goal, are not counted.
  • The minimum tune required to complete the event is [5545 5255]. This requires 2660600A8 credits small 2,660,600 + 6000A8 tokens full 6,000, 68 V6 Engines, 72 Advanced Techs and 44 Mid-Techs.
    • As the event gives out 16 engines, 52 more must be obtained through other means.
    • Players should note that the final Ultimate AI can be beaten with a lower configuration of [5545 5052]. However, this configuration is not enough for Tests .040. and .044. (the penultimate AI).
  • If the player decides to auto-test the final Ultimate AI, an alternative tune that can be used to complete the rest of the event is [5505 5254]. This requires 2124200A8 credits small 2,124,200 + 8350A8 tokens full 8,350 (inclusive of the cost needed to auto-test the final Ultimate AI), 64 V6 Engines, 63 Advanced Techs and 44 Mid-Techs. However, double/triple boosters are mandatory for most races from Test .030. onwards and the player needs to be very skilled.
  • As there are no free upgrades in this event, the Ferrari, Drive in Style and Chevrolet collections can be completed to upgrade the Ford GT 2017 should the player choose to complete the event without auto-testing the final Ultimate AI. A total of 15 Class A free upgrades can be obtained from the 3 collections for the Ford GT's 4 TOUs.
    • The Chevrolet collection is the cheapest collection to complete, as the collection does not require any cars that can only be purchased with A8 tokens full or have to be assembled with Blueprints.
      • The Chevrolet collection gives 4 free Class A upgrades for completing the collection, which requires 3086750A8 credits small 3,086,750 to max out all the four required cars.
  • As this event is identical to the R&D of the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, all the tips and warnings for that event also apply here.
