So, I basically followed CTM AudiRS6's guide, but I'm going to give it to you in a longer, more detailed, yet simpler format since some people seem to have some issues with this achievement.
1. Make sure you have the mod titled "MANUAL SHIFTING"
! This is a Purple Dare Mod, by the way. If you don't own it, keep buying the $50,000 "Superior Pack" Mod Pack until you get this mod. Once you own it, go ahead and equip it, or you can wait until you are at the race start menu to equip it then. It does not matter.
2. Go to Free Play
from the Go Race Menu
3. In GAME OPTIONS
, Make sure your options look like the following (I'm only going to put the ones that might make things easier for you in some way / Actually matter): a. MAX DRIVARARS: 23
b. DRIVATAR DIFFICULTY: NEW RACER
c. LIMIT DRIVATAR AGGRESSION: ON
d. LAPS: 3 ( 1 might be the logical answer, but with the car I used, I didn't get to 1st place until right when the 2nd lap started, and I'm always afraid of messing up. But, do 3 and you should be fine for sure )
e. COLLISION MODE: ALWAYS OFF
4. Pick any car that you own. A good car to use would be the Tesla Model S P85D
as it only has one gear, so you won't need to worry about having to shift. (Credit to Swooshiain for the tip and permission to use it in my solution)
5. Go to Select Track
, and scroll over to Indianapolis Motor Speedway
. Choose the 2nd one, titled "The Brickyard Speedway"
6. Go Over to Assists
and change things to how you like them. I would recommend having DAMAGE, FUEL, & TIRE WEAR
set to Cosmetic, as well as REWIND
turned to OFF. Not sure if that is a thing either, but it popped for me this way.
Now that you are all set up, Go to Start Race. If the Purple Dare Mod "MANUAL SHIFTING"
has not been equipped yet, do it now from the Mods menu.
Now, you can start the race. If you controller layout hasn't been altered in any way,
should be up shift, and
should be down shift.
Come in first, and the achievement should pop within a few moments.
IF YOU DISLIKED THE SOLUTION, PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHY SO I CAN INVESTIGATE AND TRY TO FIX THE SOLUTION!
