    **DISCLAIMER - The game is not fully released and is subject to updates. So far these updates have made the game significantly more difficult and nullified some of my tips. Due to frequent game overhauls this guide may no longer be accurate. I will try my best to keep it updated in a timely manner. **

    This isn't a guide per se, but rather a collection of tips and knowledge that I hope will help in getting this achievement. Suggestions are welcome.


    1. Only spend gold on getting new cars. You'll want a good number of 3 star cars (at least 4) and will need the cars for The Collector achievement.
    2. You will need to replay events to dominate them. Both for the cash and the gold. I dominated 41 of the 72 story events. I also played a limited time event that guaranteed a 3 star car and gave lots of cash. Be sure to play these if they pop up and you have good enough cars.
    3. Save your repair kits when possible. You'll need several 3 stars for the last few events, and they're fairly difficult to come by until the final episode. I finished with 72 3 star repair kits. Repairs are no longer star-specific.
    4. Do not spend cash on any cars but the ones you use. While you may upgrade them later to reach level 20 for The Collector achievement, I had issues with having enough money for most of the game to upgrade just the cars I used. doing the free card every 4 hours can give you $500 which is pretty significant.
    6. It's up to you if you want to increase the difficulty to get better rewards. All you get this way is more challenge cards, not more cash. Challenge cards are only good for upgrade kits (which you'll be swimming in at the end of the game) and a small chance at 5 or 10 gold. In my opinion they are worth it for the chance at gold (only spend on cars!), but I wouldn't go for them if you fall behind your opponent's PR. (They now exclusively give tuning kits (Dec 13, 2018))
    7. The final event is a min of 18 races and the final car has a PR of 635. This will require a 3 star car or better. Below is a table of the highest PRs in each event.
    8. My best car was a 3 star and had a PR of 639 at Rank 3/4 Level 26/30. My other cars were about 10 points lower than the competition but I managed to win by doing perfect races (perfect starts, breaks + gas). You can miss one or two break/gas and still win most of the time. You can mess up a lot if you're significantly (>25 point) higher than your opponent. If it's a close race you're best off using your boost after every corner (on the straightaways) rather than letting it build up.

    The table below lists the shortest and easiest path.

    Stark MarineWhat are your tips to upgrade the cars? I really had trouble getting them past 540s
    Posted by Stark Marine on 01 Mar at 13:21
    Mike United 007play every game mode available on a day. Spotlight, upgrades on certain types as much as possible, and only the 2nd and 3rd standard upgrades. Aim to get as many ticket types as possible. you can unlock like 3000 classic tickets and you dont have to finish the event if you can beat the end car. just back out. just save all upgrades for red and blue classic, and boost another car (i had the green modern 4 Star). just gotta play everyday to finish quicker

    paddycfc22Got this achievement finally by only focusing on the classic Pontiac GTO 'The judge' level 623 and I had my 350z at 614. Saved up 200 gold credits and done the last level first try. Highly recommended the Pontiac

    In the end of the game I had six 4-star cars, but basically you only need to invest in one red and one blue classic car - all the rest is not "really" needed.

    To add to the other solution(s): Leveling PI Advice.

    I found that after a while I'd rather just auto-race, especially when looking to level up the PI of my cars. To do this I needed to maximize my challenge packs, IRL time, and avoid spending wrenches, which meant that I needed to be able to auto-race every race in a given event.

    Once I played through the first episode, I began doing the daily upgrade and special races as well. After getting a sports (yellow), street(green), and super (blue) car to 514 or so, you can start grinding easier. You'll need to be at least Level 15 to have 3 cars to race with.

    Episode 1, Street Event 6, gives you 7 races if your follow the lower path. By auto-racing and choosing the +300 match ups, I was able to get 4 challenge cards a run in about 4-5min IRL. You can do this twice at level 15, based on the amount of energy you have at full, before having to wait or get partially through the event for a third time before having to stop and wait.

    Doing this for about a week, I was able to level 12 cars to 514, and I picked my best ones to level higher. Why 12? Some of the special races and story races require a Modern Super, or a Classic Muscle, or a Retro Street, etc. 3 types of cars x 4 car "classes" = 12, if you want to be prepared. You'll need the three various types of cars to be leveled in each class to do the "class " specific races and get the upgrade parts you need, as you can only race for "class" upgrades using class cars (except for the wild event upgrades which are random).

    Once I got a muscle, super, and sport, to 540-550 PI, you can start auto-racing and getting 5 challenge cards a run.

    Episode 1, Muscle Event 4, gives you 9 races. By running auto-race at +300 that's 27000, enough for 5 challenge cards. As before, I went the lower path and it took maybe 4-5 minutes to do the entire event (if I was watching TV or doing something else). I could do it twice without issue before needing to wait for energy or only getting a portion of the way through the event for a third time. You will use a sport, muscle, and super (any type is fine), but if you want to auto-race them all the highest PI needed is 541.

    There were a few set backs, in that I would end up getting a better quality car that was a much lower PI than the one I spent time on leveling but I like to think it was probably better in the long term to level up that silver or gold card over a generic one. As other guides have suggested, always level 3*** cars that you need, ignore 1 and 2 stars. if you end up getting a four star car, level that too, even if it is common.

    Edit: Save your gold for cars. You'll want to get enough for 5 cards or 10 cards (price is the same rate).

    urkman5000Anyone got a hint for getting Credits fast? Like the Grind thing for Kits on 2-1-2?
    Got my A** up with tuning kits but always low on credits.
    Trying to prepare for E3 already got some 4*'s up just need to Upgrade

    TubbedSlim panatella and Sashamorning in the comments above mention Episode 1 Part 1 Event 2 as being the most efficient for farming tuning parts, this is false. It is the most efficient for farming challenge cards, however those challenge cards will only give you level 3 tuning kits every time. Each level 3 tuning kit is worth 400, so if you autorace you will receive 1200 tuning points for 7 energy. This is equates to 171 points per energy spent.
    If you instead farm Episode 1 Part 4 Event 4 you will obtain less challenge cards however those cards can give you level 4 and 5 kits which are worth 1200 and 3000 respectively. I did 10 runs and it worked out to be an average of 174 points per energy spent, slightly better than 1,1,2.

    1,4,4 does depend on rng so sometimes you will get lucky and get multiple level 4 or 5 kits, sometimes none. It does balance out and work out better in the long run though.

    You should always farm upgrade events first before story anyway. You can get similar challenge card numbers and all the other rewards refresh every day unlike story.


    I will continue to track my results and update accordingly.

    Herps McGirpsIn response to Urkman5000:

    Doing the Special Event races every week and doing the upgrade races everyday gave me a ton of credits just from following the path and picking up credits from the nodes. Also if you can do the higher level upgrade races you get a lot of car chips. Each car spin can get you 750 or 1000 credits when you get the car and you can get upwards of 10 spins a day if you can clear the whole special event run and all the upgrade races. Not to mention all the challenge packs you will get and the credits they contain.

    I didn't keep track of my credits earned in any real way, but one day that stands out in my mind I had managed to get 24000 credits from just spinning for cars and claiming challenge cards. As I remember being under 1000 then claimed all my goodies to end up just over 25k.
