    For this achievement you must earn the Platinum medal in the Bobsleigh challenge, which is the DC Challenge in the 3rd season during the Winter X-Games.

    Tips:
    -Make sure to break before you turn, not as you turn.
    -After the first hairpin, try keeping the accelerator down all the way to the bottom of the hill.
    -Only use your E-Brake once, during the very tight hairpin mid-way through the track.
    -Try following the racing line in the video

    Tune your car to your preference. The following is my fastest set-up for 56.264 time:
    Gear Ratio: [X] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ]
    Downforce: [ ] [X] [ ] [ ] [ ]
    Suspension: [ ] [ ] [X] [ ] [ ]
    Ride Height: [ ] [X] [ ] [ ] [ ]
    Differential: [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [X]
    Brake Bias: [ ] [ ] [ ] [X] [ ]

    Here is a video on how to complete it with a fast time and includes tips and tricks.

    Follow oX S y k e s Xo video which has been posted above, just a few tips to add, reduce the ride height and stiffen up your suspension. You don't need the anti bump assistance if you follow the video, also increase the gear ratio and downforce so you get quicker acceleration. These changes helped me knock of half a second to my time neeting me my achievement.

    . For this achievement all of the above counts but also do not let the rev meter get to stuttering point. The traction control is off so you will lose time while the car is wheel spinning. The best thing to do is take your finger off the rt button and then easy into it. The car will stop wheel spinning and grip immediately. This also works at the starting line as well. It's not much but if you a missing it by hundreths of a sec like me this will shave it off.

    Do this method when coming out of the handbrake left turn to get it off the mark quicker.

    Further the last right hand corner as you come out from under the bridge is disigned to make your wheel spin after you go through it. If it happens use the method as stated. If it does wheel spin don't panic rewind to the bridge again. I have calculated that this bit of wheel spin added nearly a second to my time. I was constantly gettin 57.4 or . 8 till I stopped the Wheel spinning. It's not much but believe me it helps! Good luck!!

    If you watch the videos you will notice that the only place they are wheel spinning/ rev meter maxing is at the left hand handbrake turn because they are going easy at the start of acceleration.
