    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.

    Here's what I did:

    I saved a tune that I did nothing to for one of the starting cars, I then signed out and on a second profile downloaded the tune and did this:

    Free play
    Top gear west
    Circuit race 1 lap
    1 AI

    I did 49 races, hitting restart at the end. 24 hours later I received 19cr on my profile unlocking the first two achievements.
    So I repeated the process but only did 45 races and this morning received 14cr and unlocking the achievement.

    So secondary account bang out 100 races using your tune should be just over 2 hours and in the morning you'll unlock all 3 tuning achievements.

    Hope it helps, I found this to be the quickest way

    TheSaucyGibbon adds some great tips/alternative solution. Thanks and credit goes to him for the following:

    (This assumes that you have created your design and tune and have previously applied them to your boost account vehicle)

    1. Switch off your Kinect sensor, it will try to recognise you and log you in on your normal profile.

    2. Be sure that your normal profile is logged out.

    3. Log in as your boosting profile.

    4. Grab a pen and paper.

    5. Start Forza, go to Free Play.

    6. Select track : Top Gear / West Circuit

    7. In Game Options, change max drivatars to 1, laps to 1. All else leave alone.

    8. In Load Tuning Setup, search for then 'download and install' your tune again (just in case).

    9. Start Race, track will load. Watch that loading thingy go round and around in circles for some time.

    10. At Pre-race, start and FULLY RACE your first race. Sorry about the shouting there.

    11. At Post-race, scroll across and select 'Restart'.

    12. At Pre-race, select 'Start race'. While the race is loading, grab your pen and draw a short vertical line on your piece of paper. This is your record of having done one race.

    13. As soon as you see 'GO', press your 'start button' to pause the game. Scroll all the way across and select 'Quit Race'.*

    14. If you have 120 pen marks on your piece of paper, go to Step 15. If you have less than 120 pen marks, go to Step 12.

    15. Congratulations, you can stop now until your next session tomorrow

    Since there is no storefront to offer tunes, there is a bit of confusion about how to earn money from them, and ultimately win the tuning achievements. For me, it was part luck, a small part skill (quite small, really), and a larger part how it's presented. Here's a few tips:

    1) Make tunes, but don't mass produce. Ok, obvious, but more tunes means more ability for others to find them. Find a car that has access to multiple classes, and tune them to the top of those classes. Don't just save multiple random tunes and hope for the best, because bad tunes will not receive likes, and you as a tuner will be rated lower overall and show up less often in others' design recommendations.

    2) Don't ever sacrifice quality. Mass production has a tendency to try to save as much time as possible in favor of pumping out lots of numbers. Don't fall into this trap, but instead try to tune your components to run optimally for a specific condition. For example, shorten the gearing and turn up the downforce on short tracks with lots of corners. You don't need high top end speed for a track that doesn't have a long straightaway. Likewise, do the opposite for longer tracks. Then, label your tunes in the descriptions and the keywords so that users know what they're getting.

    3) Description is key. People are more likely to download and ultimately like a tune that meets a description, and also more likely not to like a tune that doesn't perform a function well, or doesn't do what the description states. The beauty of Forza is that a function specific setup will vastly outpace a car that is intended to perform well as an all 'rounder. An all-around tune is likely to perform poorly for all conditions by comparison, despite the intent to make it do well for everything. The most important words belong in the front of the description. Be clear about what the tune accomplishes in the first sentence because most people's attention span will only last a few words. You have a very short amount of time to get your message across. Protip: Set up SmartGlass
    for Xbox One and use your PC to type out descriptions through the remote function.

    An accumulation of likes will get your rating higher, which will help to get you noticed. The payments you receive, however, are based on usage in the past 24 hours. The more others use your tunes, the more you'll be paid. An accumulation of more than 30k credits will pop the achievement.

    As far as my own tunes, they are on cars like the Ferrari 458 Italia -- It's a car that is relatively affordable early in the game, but can max out A, S, and R classes. That's three of the most popular racing classes, on a popular car where people are likely to seek better setups. Find those cars, spend time on their setup, benchmark them, test them, and then share the heck out of them!

    Leave feedback for me in comments to help improve this solution if you think there's something that needs to be changed.

    I am pretty sure that you have to have at least 200+ uses in one day. I did this with 2 boost accounts, and used the BMW 1 Series M Coupe you get this car for free if you pick it at the start of the Career. I did about 150 on one of my dummy accounts, and then 50-60 give or take with my other dummy account. I did all of this after I received the messages from Forza about more uses can earn you money. I stayed up until 7am I got about 200+ uses for my tune and design but I didn't want all that work to go to waste so I asked a few friends to use my design and tune when they had the time,1 guy used them 21 time the other 20+.I did this because I receive my messages from turn 10 at 8pm and I started boosting my uses a little before 12am and I did not know if that would have an effect on my achievements because I started before 12am I didn't know if X amount of kills before or after would be added for my day grand total, so I put the original 200 up to 250+.All this put me at a grand total of 255+ tune and design uses, and 4-5 downloads total. The next day when it was message time I did not receive anything but the same old messages about more uses will gain you more money.I was very mad and didn't want to boost it anymore so that day I didn't do anything with my tunes or designs and no one else used them. The next day came (12/02/2013) a friend told me to check my turn 10 messages and I received the following:
    Professional status: In the last 24 hours, you earned 51,289 CR for your shared tuning.
    And
    Professional status: In the last 24 hours, you earned 35,545 CR for your shared
    designs.

    Now I did have a Audi that had 200+ uses for tune and designs also but that was done a long time before this.
    So I'll I can say is I think you need 200-250 uses in one day maybe 100 uses but I tried 250 and it worked for me.

    So If you want to do this by yourself here is what you do:

    Make 1 or 2 extra accounts they become gold once you get them on your Xbox one, if you already have a gold account on you system.

    buy a car on you main account that you can get for free on you dummy accounts at the start of career.
    Keep it simple use the BMW 1 series M coupe.After you buy this car make a design, and tune just change the tyre pressure keep it all free :) because your dummy accounts will not have any money. Make sure to give your design and tune a simple description to make it easy to find.

    Now start the game with 1 of you dummy accounts and do the race in the P1 after this is done choose the BMW 1 series M coupe as your free car or whatever car you happened to pick. Now after you get your free car you can pick you paint job hit the back button to search for you design, once you have it continue. The game will put you in a new race, once it starts pause the game and quit out to the main menu.

    Go to tune/upgrade and hit X now hit back for setup manager, select load setup, hit back again for search, find you tune and save and install it. Back out to the main menu and select Free play, select your car with your design and tune on it. set the game up like this:

    Tack: Top Gear, West Circuit

    Game options:
    Circuit race
    AI: 7 or whatever you like
    Laps: 1
    Collision Mode: Always off

    Now start game do your one lap, make sure you select restart after you finish each race this will save you lots of time trust me lol.

    Now I hope this helps you guys and gals out, If anyone wants to try to do only 100 uses in one day and let me know what happens that would be great.
