So I won this achievement together with Ransacked - Collect 5 Car Drops within a single game of The Eliminator, in a level 3 Volvo V60 Polestar, and I placed 1/49. The trick is that when you are preparing for the final race (you cannot challenge other players anymore), you may want to bet for a 'right' direction, aka the finish point. At this time it's fine to drive out of the zone a little bit. If you bet right, you will have a perfect head start for this final stretch(this strategy is also suitable for the HEADS UP achievement, which I didn't get yet). The finish point is usually located at the middle of the map.
This 2nd time I won I was in a Audi RS6 '03. As I said, try to guess for a direction and gun it when there's like 20 secs left. However, you may either win easily or come dead last...

edit: since a hot fix is out now, this approach may not work anymore. After the final zone has been settled, drive out of it can be very dangerous cause the bar will go up really fast. A new possible way is that guess the final destination(as usual) and wait at the very edge of the zone. When the final countdown ended, just gun it.
FightingMegaFooI don't know if I'm just horrible at guessing or incredibly unlucky, but 95% of the time I'm on the totally wrong side of the circle and start at 9-12th place. I've tried guessing closest to the center of the map to guessing the smallest portion of the map outside the circle and everything in between, but I'm always wrong.

Any tips for better predictions?

FightingMegaFooDoes it matter where the other players are? I'm wondering if it's because I try to be as far away from other players as possible. It's as if the game is seeing where most of the other drivers are and chooses the finish line closest to where most of the other players are bunched up.

el p1nkoIs the finish for the final race random or predetermined by the location of the final circle?

ALLSETFORMOVEAs far as I know the destination is completely random.

NickSalohcinThis is a zero skill game mode. Faster car driving in the correct direction wins almost 100% of the time unless they crash. All there is to it. I win basically every head to head in those parameters. So winning the game is the exact same but even worse.

el p1nkoSince the update you cannot drive out of the final circle for more than 5 seconds at most anymore.
You can still make your bets by being at the correct part of the edge of the circle when the countdown ends but don‘t leave the circle more than 5 seconds before the countdown ends, otherwise you are dead.
This also goes for the Heads Up achievement of course.

This tip worked first time for me. I got a bit lucky, crashed near the end to lose the lead but then the leader flipped at end. What a finish!

planchetflawSo glad I knocked this out today. Just luck. I was about 6th, but had the bowler from someone head 2 heading me. I guessed wrong but only by 90 degrees. I was in 2nd until probably last 100m when guy in first hit a tree.

Dobermann XSeems impossible to win that shit! Every time I try, I can’t get better than level 7 car, everyone cheat, they ends with a level 10 car and go off the zone before the end of the counter without being eliminated. This game is so stupid!

Dobermann XImpossible even with a level 10 car and going in the right direction ahead of every one. There is always someone that get a faster car even if he hit walls or tree... I’m sure they cheat. This game is pure garbage.

NicoRobinsGhostCan someone please explain how a hyper car leaves me for dead off road when I’m in a off-road truck? I dunno how this game works seriously, it’s like playing need for speed again.

AbsconderWon in a level 6 car by choosing the opposite side of the circle to where everyone else was gathered. The final location luckily came up on my side. Now I’ve to try and do it all again for the “Heads Up” achievement

ALLSETFORMOVEI haven't played Eliminator for maybe a year or two now... after I got all those achievements and cars.

Myths ArmadaI waited at the top of the circle and got a head start on everyone but got overtaken by someone in a level 10 car.

I managed to win in the Mini because they crashed right before the end. So lucky!

DJ StottyThis achievement is horrific, and that before winning in the mini alone
