This is the toughest achievement in the game and requires you to have a Speed Rating of 105 on every track in the game. Speed Ratings are earned by lap times on each track, the faster the lap time, the higher the Speed Rating. 105 is the highest and will reward you with an "Elite" rank.

These laps MUST be done in "Race" mode for them to count towards this achievement.

Before you start make sure that you have Physics set to "Simulation" in the advanced settings menu. This will make your car faster (no auto-brake) and allow you to tweak your car setup. (Change the physics to "Normal" for Sonoma & Watkins Glen)

Set the Race Mode to "Race Only" in the Session Settings menu then in the Race Settings menu select the AI Difficulty to Custom Level 105 (hardest) and Race Length to 2%. Once in the race you will start at the back of the pack. Let the fast AI pull away leaving you a nice clear track for your laps.

There is a lot of talk amongst players that setting your Right Rear Spring to 600 lbs/in and 4th gear to 0.95 in the car setup is a "beat-any-track miracle", it isn't . . . . but it is very helpful on SOME tracks.

I personally left the gear ratios at their default and often the Right Rear Spring too but if you are struggling try stiffening the Right Rear Spring (credit to the TA racing community for this great tip) which will allow you to corner faster in the turns and maintain your speed. But don't set it to 600 (max) straight away as it can make your car very unstable on certain tracks.

Some tracks will require you to draft the AI cars in order to obtain the lap time required for Elite. I have marked the tracks on which I used drafting. If you do need to draft it is a case of trial-and-error how far you let the AI get away and when you catch them up.

Don't be afraid to use the walls on some of the smaller / tighter ovals. It's cheap but riding the walls makes some tricky tracks very easy. Again, riding the walls and maintaining your speed is a case of trial-and-error.

There are a total of 23 tracks, the list below shows my times on each one as a guide. These times are not the minimum times required for the Elite Speed Rating just the times I obtained when I hit 105. This will give you an idea of the times to shoot for.

Please Note: It has been noted that the times required for some tracks have been altered (made harder) since I set these times. I can only assume this has been tweaked via the several updates the game has received since I unlocked this achievement. As I no longer have the game I am unable to check the current required times so please comment below (with your time) if you find a time that needs updating and I will amend the list.
