Tips / Warnings

  • The minimum tune required to complete the event is 0500 0050. This requires only A8 credits small 489,375 and 8 Hybrid Engines, but the player must be extremely skilled, as the car has a moderately wide drifting radius, more so than the Sbarro Sparta. (Gameplay by Alex Letizia finishing the R&D with this tune here)
    • 5505 0020 is also a viable option for players who have less skills. This requires more Credits with A8 credits small 1,012,725 (A8 credits small 523,350 more) with a trade-off of a lower engine card requirement of only 2 Hybrid Engines
    • Both of above mentioned tunes are not valid for re-run of the event during July 2019. AI times were reduced significantly and several other races were made tougher.
