I case you are wondering what triggers a "Lucky Escape": Drift + Near Miss (in that order)

(Not my video but if you want or need one:
- from second 14 - 18)

Happy escaping everyone ;)

You will need to perform a Near Miss while Drifting along.

If you smack into the car, you lose your combo.
If you lightly touches the other car, you get a Trading Paint skill but no Lucky Escape.

Can be done with any car, although I suggest picking a Drift car with a good handling and eventually search into the storefronts for a good Drift tune set up.

Surfers Paradise
Can be done anywhere, but if you search for a good location, you might want to try the long avenue on Surfers Paradise.

Clip 1
I used the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 HE with a Drift setup called "RWD S1900 DRIFT" from Aerodynamiq.

(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)

Clip 2
OK... So the previous vid gave me like 2 negative votes on YouTube so far :(
Maybe it was too short, or maybe because I was showing only the last "Lucky Escape" and not the full run.
So, I decided to make a new vid with that exact same location.
Normally I really suck at drifting... Yes, I really do.

I used the Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series Horizon Edition (S2/966) which is normally a Speed Skill Boost car.
Tune setup : name "XP MADNESS" from... yup, him! The one and only Don Joewon Song! rock

I must say I had a wonderful run with this car and this tune setup (by my own standards - I know where the limits of my skills are)
So if you've not been lucky so far, maybe you want to give this combination a try?
(!) No challenge unlocking at the end of the vid, since I already got it earlier today with the other car (see previous vid).

"Lucky Escapes" appearing at : (1) 0:41 , (2) 0:53 , (3) 0:58 , (4) 1:09 and (5) 1:25

Alternative method:
Well, the interstate highway might do the trick with oncoming traffic.
Head towards an oncoming car and a little bit before a head-on collision, start drifting with hopefully a Near Miss as a result.
I pressed cn_LS either left or right and E-braking (cn_A) instantly.
Good timing is crucial here.

Clip 1
With my Dummy account, I used one of the recently gifted cars, the TAMO Racemo.
I must say this wasn't exactly the best car to use for this challenge, but it got the job done in the end.

Clip 2
Using the same car as I did on Surfers Paradise, to show it can also be done on the highway at a slower pace.
In the previous vid I used that TAMO car and it really sucked (I don't have many cars with my Dummy account).
It was also night time so maybe not easy to watch the vid.
So here's another one...

"Lucky Escapes" appearing at : (1) 0:20 , (2) 0:33 , (3) 0:37 , (4) 0:46, (5) 0:51 and (6) 1:03

So yeah... definitely go for this car with this setup!!

Thanks for voting thumbs up if the guide was useful.

Any suggestions to improve the guide are welcome.

Good luck!
