Tips / Warnings

  • Unlike previous R&Ds, the first free upgrade is not limited to lower level upgrades and can be used on any level of any upgrade. Players are advised to use it on Top Speed level 4 and upgrade it to level 3 before test 3. The other 2 free upgrades should be used on Top Speed level 5 and Nitro level 5.
  • As the SLS has similar performance to the Zenvo ST1, which has mediocre overall performance, caution should be taken and acceleration upgrades should not be ignored.
  • The minimum tune reported so far required to complete the event is [5555 3151]. This requires 8 FI-V8 engines, the same number of engines given in the event.

Trivia

  • While this R&D event is based on the one of the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, there are some differences:
    • This R&D event is shorter by 5 days, and as a result, many tests require less Quality Checks.
    • Test .048. is not a Flawless race, instead being a standard Classic race.
    • The Ultimate AI Challenges are slightly different; The Mirage, which would have normally showed up at Test .033., appears in Test .050., while Azure Coast, which would normally be reserved for Test .050., instead appears in Test .033.
    • Some of the tests use the Munich Subway tracks.
  • Excluding Enduro Double Down, this R&D event, along with the ones for the Lamborghini Huracán and Egoista and the Championship events for the Porsche Carrera GT and SCG 003S, are the only events where at least two tests/races have a recommended rank set above the car's MAX+PRO rank; in the SLS' case, the last 12 tests, including the last Ultimate AI Challenge, have a recommended rank of 1734 (equal to the SLS' MAX+PRO rank with Tuning Kit activated).
    • Unlike other events, the 1734 recommended rank is always highlighted in red even if the player has the SLS at MAX+PRO and all 3 boosters active.
