This is what I believe to be the most efficient way of getting resource points (playing on easiest difficulty):

1. Go to Practice 1 - Do 1 lap of Track Acclimatization, then Qualifying Pace.
If you perfect them you will get 50 RP each, plus some points for Misc objectives.

2. Now tab right and skip to Qualifying. (You could get 10 RP each for starting P2 & P3 but with loading times its not worth it)

3. Completing one-shot qualifying should give you 85 RP.
(Note, this will decrease slightly as your car gets better)

*Edit - 4. I suggest getting a Grid Drop Penalty by going to Laptop and tab right to Vehicle Management. Select the '+' sign by any of the power units (or Gearbox). You will now start the race in 6th place. Overtaking the other cars will give you an extra 50RP at the end of the race. (I wish I figured this out sooner. 50 extra RP per race is huge).

5. Now start the Race... Do 1 good lap, then pause & Simulate Session.
You will get 1st place giving 55 RP + 1st driver bonus of 25-40 RP.
(If you do all 5 laps you will get 100 RP but again, its not worth it).

Now for spending points (and not wasting them on failed upgrades). - each time you have 1000+ RP to spend, wait until after the race when you can press cn_X to start the Next Weekend.

Instead - Quit to Main Menu, press cn_Y and turn Auto-save OFF.

Go back into Career & purchase any upgrade you like and proceed to next weekend.

If the engineer tells you the upgrade failed just dashboard & quit the game. (If its good then don't forget to save your game soon after).

Now restart the game and make sure to turn Auto-save OFF again (it resets to ON). Repeat the above steps until the upgrade doesn't fail. I chose a different upgrade each time if it failed but I don't know if its necessary.

*Edit - for Major & Ultimate upgrades you can try this method at the very end of a Season, Advancing to next weekend will take 2-3 weeks.

I hope this helps getting faster RP and not wasting it on stupid RNG.

Here is my theory based on my own experience unlocking this achievement. I noticed that the 3 progress bars on vehicle performance status only include CHASSIS, AERODYNAMICS and POWERTRAIN upgrades. Now as you see in the screenshot below, I should have unlocked the achievement way before but it didn't unlock. It only unlocked when the 3 stats above averaged at 77%. Before I purchased the final component that granted the achievement, the percentage average was almost 75%.

In the below screenshot, CHASSIS, AERODYNAMICS and POWERTRAIN averages to 77,41%

So my theory is that this achievement only counts progress towards CHASSIS, AERODYNAMICS and POWERTRAIN. I would advice to start unlocking upgrades from this section first. Again, this is not a definite solution, but just an advice from my own experience.
