Trivia

Tips & Tricks

  • If power-ups are placed on narrow parts of a track (the tunnel in Tokyo for example), it is possible to pick up two of them at the same time by drifting at a wide angle.
  • AI drivers can collect coins and will glow purple if they do so. If the player knocks them down, they will get all the coins they had collected. This doesn't apply to knockdown targets in Knockdown events, where they can still collect coins but do not glow purple.
  • Tracks with little to no path variation and short length are recommended to get as many Coins in a single race and complete quests as quickly as possible.
  • It is possible to collect Festival Coins in Mastery. Players are advised to keep a convenient Mastery track unplayed and deliberately fail when playing it so they can repeat collecting coins every day.
  • It is best to use vehicles which have Season 9 races that take place on short tracks (e.g. Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning in Dubai, McLaren M14A in The London Eye and Koenigsegg One:1 or Porsche Cayman GT4 in San Diego Harbor) to the Career-related quests if the player wants to grind Credits, Festival Coins and achieve those milestones at the same time.
    • If the player has the McLaren MP4-31, its 6th race in the McLaren Legends Season can be used for the same purpose.
    • The 2018 McLaren X2's Dubai race in the McLaren Legends Season, while being the fastest to complete, is not as profitable as the MP4-31's 6th race.
      • The Ducati Monster 1200 and BMW S 1000 RR have races in Barcelona that are useful for doing backflips and wheelies.
        • However, Moto Blitz races have an extremely low payout, thus playing Moto Blitz races after completing quests related to it are not recommended.
  • After completing a tokens quest, the player can complete any remaining quests but should only claim the trophies when the next tokens quest starts.
