Double Boxing strategy for that extra bit of power
The following advice will only make this achievement a bit easier. It is not a fool proof way of getting this achievement. Sorry, there is no easy way to get this achievement.

I was so close to winning the Eliminator many times, just to see a level 8-10 car pass me on the last stretch, while I was scooting along in a level 3. So I decided to double box this achievement.
Of course, you can also have friends help you with this. The more people help you, the higher your chances of winning this awful achievement. It is not a sure win, but it will give you that extra edge.

Here is what I did (and this worked on the second try):
1. Join a convoy with your dummy.
2. Search for Eliminator at the same time. There are never any full lobbies, so you will definitely end up in the same game.
3. Spawn in close to each other. (Sometimes you can't see each other from the beginning of the round. However, trust me, you are in the same Eliminator game. I think it has to do with the game not showing you every single opponent from the start)
4. Hide your main account. And hope that it will stay safe for a while. Usually, opponents are so scarce early on that no one will find you.
5. Go car drop hunting with your secondary account. Get something nice, like a level 6-7. Car drops become more frequent as the round progresses. If you can't find a drop immediately, keep searching. They also contain better cars later on in the round.
6. When you've acquired a nice car with your dummy, challenge your main account and lose on purpose. Voila, you have a level 6 and above car without much hassle.

If you do this with a level 6 car and above you also unlock:

7. From this point on it depends again on luck and your driving skill. But mostly luck. >> You will have to survive until the end, guess the correct direction and win against the others. Hopefully they'll hug a few trees on the way and YOU ARE THE ELIMINATOR!

Good luck! You will need it...
Guys guys... I never said this would be easy. If you don't get it the first try, please try again. Lol
xCENAxMODHopefully this works for me man lol, btw for everyone you need to get to Autumn to be able to play Eliminator

TJ EliminatorHow do you do this? Do you need 2 consoles?
Posted by TJ Eliminator on 27 Oct 20 at 20:21
Dr Marty@TJ Eliminator: Yes, you either need 2 consoles or friends who help you. The more people are helping you, the better your chances of winning this horribly luck-based achievement.

Even if you do all the above steps correctly, many things can still go wrong:
1. Your main account could be challenged, while you're using your dummy account to find car drops. Even if a friend is helping you and you're focused solely on your main account, people could still find you/catch up with you and challenge you.
2. Even after you have successfully received a high tier car by challenging your dummy or a friend who is helping you, AND you successfully reached the finale, you STILL need to hope that you get to the finish line first. Everything after reaching the finale is completely luck-based. There will be other high tier cars competing with you. There is a very good chance that you will not get there first. Which means you need to start over again.

Good luck!

TJ EliminatorThanks for the quick reply. Yes this achievement is far from ideal - I can get to the final showdown but the other cars are high level and get there first. I will try with some friends if not do you think it’s possible to boost this with a a big session of gamers from TrueAchievements?

Dr MartyLike I said, the more people help, the better your chances that the final race is filled with your buddies. However, this might be a frustrating boosting session, because nothing is guaranteed. Which means that one person may have to attempt this dozens of times and to get everyone the achievement may take quite some time.

TJ EliminatorSo I just won a H2H and got a level 6 car was facing the right way for final showdown and was ahead and somehow they win so fast. I wish the Forza team would do an event so everyone has same car to make it more obtainable.

jasonlc3221This achievement sucks really bad. There always seems to be someone in the match that already has a level 10 car before the ring is even on its 2nd shrink.

None-the-less, I got this on my 15th try in a level 3 car. I was horribly beat by a level 10 car, and slightly beat by a level 7 truck. I had a level 3 Lancer. But even though they beat me, they both took a wrong turn in the city, thinking the finish was on top of a bridge. I followed the GPS and the drive-line, which took me UNDER the bridge, where the actual finish was and I won. EXTREMELY luck based.

I did use my dummy in the very beginning, searched for a car drop for a couple minutes, could only find a level 2 car, challenged my main. My main won, got level 2 car, then i was lucky enough to find a level 1 car with my main, challenged them, got a level 3 upgrade for winning, but never could find a fair challenge again after. All i found was a player in a level 10 car, but they wanted no part of me cuz they didn't want to risk losing before the final showdown. Everyone else seemed to always be busy racing each other, so i couldn't get a challenge with them. Soon after, the player count was below 10 and I was like, screw it, I'll just try to do it in a level 3. It can be done, but it's purely luck at that point. The whole damn thing is luck, really. Good luck to all of you.

Dr MartyLike I said, car drops become more frequent and have better cars in them a bit later into the round. I found good level 5 and 6 cars with my dummy. The round that I actually got the achievement in, I found a level 7 car with my dummy.

But you're completely right: This thing is still luck based, even after you get a good car.
