    TwinklingPlaysThere's a huge difference between getting 20.000 and 100.000. You need to get 100.000 in one go and the higher you get and the longer go for, the harder it is to keep the streak ongoing.

    I found a pretty easy race to get this achievement after initially struggling to get anywhere near the 100k mark. If you enter the Sports Utility Heroes Event and go to the West Hill Cross Country Circuit this achievement becomes a breeze. I managed to hit 100,000 in my first lap and then 120,000 in my second without really putting too much effort into it.

    The circuit itself is designed with wide corners perfect for drifting and has jumps that you can grab air dotted all over. If your multiplier is about to finish then remember to;

    - Draft opponents
    - Over-take opponents
    - Run over bushes (this comes in handy when you are on a long, flat straight).

    Hope this helps!

    danwood11I used the Porsche 4 x 4 fully upgraded with off-road kit (I forget it's name). Got 99,950 on my first go. If you are struggling, just keep doing this race and getting skill points so you unlock extra perks like an extra second on skill chain, and skill chain builds faster etc. I got 125,000 on my second go after upgrading my perks.

    Alright, for this one, you will have to score at least 100,000 skill points in one go and has to be done on Storm Island.

    A few words first...
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    Mitsubishi Galant VR-4
    Class : A800
    Upgrades : only installed the necessary storm island upgrade parts (transmission, tires, etc), and then let the game do a quick upgrade to A800 class.
    Assists : I had them all turned on
    Track : Tier 6 (Volcano Sprint), Championship #4 (90's Rally Championship), Race "North Valley Extreme Cross Country" (see video clip)


    (Please note : the clips were recorded by Xbox One's Game DVR. Therefore, any eventual unlocking achievements appeared on my screen were not registered by the Game DVR)

    Porsche Macan Turbo
    Class : A777
    Upgrades : only installed the necessary storm island upgrade parts (transmission, tires, etc), and did no further upgrades
    Assists : I had them all turned on
    Track : Tier 6 (Volcano Sprint), Championship #3 (Sports Utility Heroes Championship), Race "West Hill Cross Country Circuit) (see video clip)

    It took me many attempts to get it right and unlock this one.
    So don't panic if you can't get it right from the first attempt.

    Any suggestions to improve this guide are welcome!

    Thanks for voting thumbs up if this guide was useful.

    Good luck!

    I entered the Off Road Championship in Tier 5 using the 1986 Lamborghini LM 002. I went to the West Valley Extreme Cross Country.

    This has lots of jumps and corners which you can drift around. If your skill chain is about to finish, do little drifts, draft behind opponents and run over bushes and little objects.

    I hope you get the achievement from this guide :)
