Tips / Warnings

  • Unlike previous R&Ds, the Hyundai i30 N's R&D event has the added problem of the i30 N being an Elite Car, as this can slow down the process of winning the car. After 3-5 races (regardless of race type, or especially Elimination races), the player will need to tune up the i30 N to avoid having to race while in poor condition.
    • Tune-ups should be done within 1 hour of the 3rd Proto Key being used to prevent delays in completing the event and/or failing Tests from degraded vehicle condition.
    • There is a glitch where the car still performs normally despite the elite condition being depleted. Nonetheless, the player is advised to tune the elite condition after using up the elite bar as a precaution.
  • Due to the short time limit, the player should have at least A8Tokens 800​​ in order to restore QCs in failed tests, restock proto keys and skip tune-ups if they are uncertain about completing the event within the given time limit.

Trivia

  • This is the first R&D to use an Elite Car.
    • It is also the first R&D to have a 4-door vehicle.
  • Judging from the fact that some of the quotes from Lab .003. onwards reference either the wrong track or race mode (e.g. Test .043.'s quote referencing Infected despite the actual test being a Classic race), this R&D was originally planned to have 44 Tests divided into 4 Labs, in the same layout as the R&D events for the Lotus Evora Sport 410 and Mazda RX-8 Special Edition.
    • Test .044. is set in Alps Reverse, which is the location where the two aforementioned R&Ds end.
    • This is further reinforced by the fact that the quote of Test .044. is repeated for the next 6 tests, presumably due to no new quotes being written.
    • Some of the tests are even reused from these R&Ds, but modified to fit the Hyundai i30 N's much lower speed compared to the Lotus and Mazda. Some of these tests even feature different race modes, main goals, and subgoals.
  • Unlike most other R&Ds, this R&D does not feature Flawless tests.
