WARNING - USING THIS METHOD MAY DECREASE YOUR ALREADY ACCRUED PROGRESS (according to Reqqu). Due to this possibility, I recommend getting these out of the way before proceeding with any other MP achievements so that they don't tamper with your miles lead tally. The majority of people however, have had the same success I had with this method.

I've been boosting other people's designs and tunes by doing a 1/4 mile drag race in private multiplayer lobbies and rubberbanding my controller and after 20 or so heats this achievement, along with all of it's predecessors popped.

Set up a private multiplayer lobby with at least 1 drivatar. Make sure the settings are:

- Game type: Drag
- Environment: Any
- Track: 2-car 1/4 mile drag
- Max players: doesn't matter
- Max drivatars: AT LEAST 1
- Drivatar difficulty: whatever you are comfortable with
- Force off TCS: up to you
- Easiest shifting allowed: automatic (as you can rubberband the trigger and press A when prompted at the end of the heats)
- Number of heats: 10 (10 is the max. Around heat 20-25 you should unlock all of these achievements)
- Car class: set this option to whatever class you are using
- Drive type: again, set this to whatever you are using.

Start the race. Most of the time you will show that you are in 1/1* place so you won't get any medals, but for some reason, the mile tracker counts and it progresses fast! I got this after around 25 1/4 mile heats which took me maybe half an hour or a little longer. ENJOY!!

Please comment to let me know if this isn't working for you and I will test it out on another account. Also, if you vote negative, please let me know why and I will try my best to accommodate whatever the issue is, thanks!!

*EDIT*According to Arch Lord, when he set his races up, it showed him being in 1/2 place and it still worked.

**EDIT 12/26/2013** CHERRY CHEERIOS says: "also just throwing it out there that this works the same way in public multiplayer and you can get medals in those rooms. That's how I've been getting my online medals out of the way."

***EDIT 01/03/2015*** The issue with decreasing miles on the achievement may be related to having metric units when drag racing. According to HolyHa1fDead, "I was drag racing for medals with another person when I rapidly started getting these achievements for leading. I let the other person lead but they weren't making any noticeable progress. Thats when we worked out that I had changed my units from Metric to English...As soon as the other person changed to 'English' they got the achievement in 20 or so heats."

So it looks like a bug is only in the 'Imperial' drag mile to achievement progress conversion code." -- What this means is try changing settings from KM to miles for the drag heats
