    Just an addition to the other awesome guides here.
    Found a faster method which requires very less effort.
    Works on the latest patch where are Drag races were added.

    What you want to do is, race with a dummy account, whcich has your tuning setup and design on the car. In free play.
    Instead of using Circuit races select Drag (by pressing 'right' at the Game Oprtions -- Game Type)

    Game Type: Drag
    Max AI: 1
    Drivatar Diff: your choice
    Car: Any
    Drive Type: Any
    Assists: you want to select Automatic shift

    What I did:
    I taped down the RT and watched some movies on my other TV and just selected Restart.
    Takes about 1:00 minute to complete 1 race including all loading screens.

    EDIT::: You have to do at least 80-100 races in one DAY ( I think the Forza Server counts from 7pm PST- to 7pm PST next day) to get credits for the races.

    I made 330 races in ca 7-8hrs and earned 70k for tuning and 25k for desings.
    My 2nd run I made 100 races and got 11k in design and 17k in tuningawards, but this time I drove in Multiplayer. Same setup with one change, I change from 3 passes into 10 passes. Takes about 12 minutes for the 10 races.

    ZummitHere is the response from

    Forza Support Team
    Thank you for taking the time to report this issue.

    I wish I had better news for you, but unfortunately, we no longer actively support Legacy Forza titles. Limited support is still available for matchmaking and leaderboard services.

    While I appreciate you taking the time out today to write in to Forza Support, we sadly are unable to take care of this request.

    Thank you,
    Forza Support Team

    SLY B00GIE93Been trying these today 24/03/21 (as well as doing 150 heats yesterday with a tune and design with my boosting partner) even with 380 over 24 hours, freelance status is all that is earned and no credits whatsoever, this achievement along with the other tune and design ones appear broken for anyone who has yet to earn any cr initially from them

    After trying the Drag solution, i tried to make it so what easier to get this achievement, and then i found this:

    1. Sign in under a different gamertag.

    2. Buy a car and download a paint (and a tune) created under your own gamertag.

    3. Go into Rivals mode.

    4. Start a race, using the car loaded with your paint/tune.

    5. After the race has started, quit out of the race. (Tip: Dont restart from within the race, as this wont count towards a use).

    6. When you are back in the menu, (but still in rivals mode), restart the race. This will take you to another menu where you can select "Start Race").

    You dont need to actually complete a race. Just select finish as soon as the race has started.

    Everytime you do steps 4 to 6 will be counted as a single use for your paint/tune.

    Credits are paid on a daily basis, and are based on a minimum number of uses for that particular day. A day starts at 4pm Pacific Standard Time (the same time the in game messages are sent out informing you about any uses of your paints or tunes).

    To earn credits, the minimum number of daily uses is something like 100 uses for a paint and 50 for a tune. To be safe, aim for 150 uses. This should take about an hour.

    (Credits go to: Captain Bluey from

    alot faster then doing the 10 heats with the drag races
    hope it helps.

    Celes KilmerAnother data point, I used this method for ~110 races, earned 20k for my tune, and 8.9k for my design.

    Zaki HUNI did this yesterday, and I only received 4406CR for designs after 150 races. I'm on 67%, so i guess i have to do this 2 times more and i will be almost done. This is my last achievement.

    VictimOfDesireTried this method out yesterday. After 203 cycles, I got 20,890 for designs and 18,900 for tuning. Hopefully another 150 tonight should put me over the top! +1

    Hey here's what I did hope it helps and provides clarity

    Having already done 50 races 2 days in a row and receiving nothing, I created a third profile,

    I then used my design for 55 races also liking it on the third profile, my design included paint and vinyl/decals

    I then went to my second profile and did 50 races with the same design and liked it, I then changed car and design did 30 races, liked the design

    This got me 19k cr and the first two achievements

    Forza Motorsport 5Museum QualityThe Museum Quality achievement in Forza Motorsport 5 worth 109 pointsEarn 15,000 credits from the community using your designs.

    The next day I used a new design 50 uses and a like on both profiles, then a third design 20 races and a like

    I received another 19k and the final achievement

    SopositoryHold on I read on another sight that you didn't have to do a min. of 100 races in a day. is this true or not? I am confused as to why they would make an achievement that requires a min of 100 uses in 1 day. If they did do that the game makers are stupid and this will the the first and last time I buy a forza game.

    OK I think there is something wrong with his these 3 achievements work, I did 50 with the tunes but only got paid for tunes second day 50 got paid for tunes again nothing for designs a couple of days later I came back to this had a free lance msg and no payout created new designs and did what's stated above, so unless its patched 100 is the minimum which is stupid because the payout is then bigger than 1000cr and makes it redundant but its a launch game in a new generation and with all the bad press because of the 'micro transactions' turn10 have been busy fixing that, its only a few hours and you can get these achievements done, or if your lucky and have friends help each other, that wasn't an option for me this is for people on there own

    badad117you will be gifted a Hyundai velociter if you are VIP as soon as you finish your first career race so that's 2 cars free. make tunes for both then alternate between cars. Don't know if that will make anything go faster but worth a try
