Tips / Warnings

  • Caution is advised while driving the 650S GT3 for all tests. The car has a tendency to do "glitch bumps" and skids. While drifting will stop the skidding, this requires fast reaction times to avoid wrecking and spin-outs.
  • The event can be completed with an upgrade setup of [3515 3333]. Only A8 tokens full 50 has to be spent on the Nitro Level 1 upgrade.
    • However, due to negative reception from the community about A8 tokens full-only upgrades, it was changed to allow a payment option of either A8 credits small or A8 tokens full for upgrades on the vehicles that were converted to have A8 tokens full-only upgrades until October 31, 2017.
  • Before attempting Test 3, install the aforementioned upgrade; once having passed it, use the resulting free upgrade on Nitro Level 2.
    • Use the remaining 3 free upgrades from Tests 8, 18, & 27 on Top Speed Levels 3 & 5 and Nitro Level 4.

Trivia

  • This is the first non-motorcycle R&D to have Time Attack tests.
  • This R&D event is the third R&D event without any Unplugged tests, after the Renault Alpine Celebration & Ducati SuperSport S. It is the fourth R&D event which does not use "Collect Quality Checks" as the main goal of any test after the Renault Alpine Celebration, Ducati SuperSport S & Suzuki Hayabusa.
