Like with the first Beat The Team achievement, although this video shows you how to get the achievement with the ELITE GT12, I would suggest doing the same route with the COBRETTI 530 GTS. I found getting the achievement much easier with the COBRETTI.

With the COBRETTI, do not worry about hitting the walls and do not really try to avoid it. Just make sure that you are bouncing off of them, not sliding against them, and always hitting them with the side of the car and you should not crash. You also do not need to let up on the gas in the beginning to avoid drifting.

All credit for the video goes to the wonderful people at Achievement Hunter.
Mr J1mWorked really well with Cobretti RS. 1:17.76s. Hadn't unlocked the GT12 and not willing to pay for it and definitely found it easier with this car than a couple of others I tried.

SpilnerThe elite car is terrible and best i got with the Cobretti is 1:19, i just dont see how im slow. These detonators make me hate the game

SpilnerI was trying the RS... the 530 GTS was far easier. Thanks

hatchywatchy530 worked for me, not tried the G12 as I haven't unlocked it yet. Best advice I can give is - Do not drift! Slow down to turn and power out of the corners.

Kinesis916Fantastic advice to use the 530GTS. I was struggling big time before I got in that.

The Nollai just got this with the COBRETTI 530 GTS, i dont think i hit the breaks once. Just made sure i hit the sides and bounced off like advised in the solution. i tried for a while breaking round corners and avoiding drift but kept coming up a couple of seconds short. My advice slam in to the sides and when you need to

virtualmaddenI just couldn't do it without the Elite. It became tremendously easier when I started taking the turns slower. The video actually provides a great template to use for your own run. I found as long as I hit the middle of the two hairpin turns in 40sec, it was going to be a good run. After about 20 tries, I stopped watching the time and shaved a good 3sec off my time.

xxxDarkRuleRxxxI did it with the HANZO FX350.
- Drift around (most) of the corners.
- Hammer the throttle after drifting to keep your speed.
- Try drifting around the corners as tight as possible.
I got it @ 1:17:91

KrakilinXI got, 1:17:31. Like what others said on the top, COB 350 GTS is the way to go!!! Gas all the way, no breaks at all. The secret is, during the turns, you rather hit the rail than drifting too long. Hitting the rail you maintain FULL SPEED. The ONLY part where I let out the gas for a little bit is near the end, the long straightaway right before turning right, and then a immediate left. I let out of the gas to enter into the right, then full gas all the way and bump all the rails.

TheRealPHEasy achievement if you know what to do! Took me only 10 tries to get to 144th in the world with a 1:16.78. The key is just like everyone said: Cobretti 350 GTS and never brake. Just watch your angle when you bump into the corners as you can crash pretty easily.

Tasty PastryJust got it. The real important part of this solution is the advice for the Cobretti. I watched the video and it contained nothing really that I couldn't figure out on my own. Thanks for the advice, probably took me about an hour of practice. I started off as lame as 1 minute 22, but after about every 5 races I'd get a slightly better time...I got to 1:18.37 and knew I could do it (I got 1:18:18 afterwards, and then completed it). I think the real part to master is the very beginning - unlike the video I didn't let off the gas. Go to the right, through the new aisle, but make sure not to be too far to the right at the end of the alley or you'll hit those fence pieces. Instead make it so you go just to the left of them, then immediately swerve right so that you can make the left turn as hard as you can. If you can pass just by the far left corner of that turn, you've got the rest of the race easy.

F L Y B 0 Y 9 1I considered myself an above average-ish racer, but I am amazed how difficult this achievement was. Great solution, excellent video and very useful comments.

To reaffirm what others have said, use the Cobretti 350 GTS and you should be ok. It's worth all the agony when you finally see that 25G pop-up!! :D

PlanesWalker 97Thanks for the awesome tip, tried for almost 2 hours with barely any improvements, than I tried your car choice and 40 min later full achievements

MagnumZeroThis video is a little better and it uses the Cobretti. Not mine though. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MB8eBXjGZuI

MattyJWest+1 for the Cobretti, I found it much easier to use than the GT12

ShinwashaOnly advice I can add that others didn't is keep trying. There was a point after the towers, that I actually got lifted off the track, and it made it so I couldn't make it.

xPut Name HerexSo my battery pack is a bit unstable in the controller (there's cracks at the bottom of where it inserts), so when I thought I got this (down to the wire), I raised my hand very quickly and sent the battery pack flying out. So I heard the bleep-boop at the right time, but it was the notification for "please reconnect controller" and not an achievement. I was freaking out until I finally saw my time on the screen: 1:17.99 shock

Luku38millionth time, got 1:18:03. millionth one time, got 1:17:96 :D

koobz2142try 252, my cobretti got 1:18:44

The cobretti can probably get sub 1:17 but it's an extremely difficult car to use here.

If I wanted extreme difficulty, I'd use the Hanzo and get sub 1:09

I wanted the achievement. I used the Elite G12 and got 1:17:74 on the fifth try, with a major drift mistake at the falling pylons.

koobz2142I'm not kidding. It's 5pm and I've been playing all day. I really gave the cobretti a shot

Dan vasNormandyThumbs up from me! Did it without bouncing at all 1.17.63 (about ten tries)

FinalBossBrstupid time challenges. i hate this

RatpoizenOnly just got this game since it was free with GwG. You should always be drifting using the throttle and never using the brakes at all. Hammering the throttle after drifts keeps your speed up.

ROBBERT DHThttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhbyB6dmaiE this one really helped me. Wall attacking for those who suck at the other methods like me.
Posted by ROBBERT DHT on 28 Feb 18 at 20:15
EldritchSSWhat worked for me was wall attacking without braking, except at the end after the wrecking ball. Then I was calm and slowed down around the turns as shown in magnums video. Really helped shave off those last two seconds I needed.

A Dreadful ShotGreat solution, holding down the gas and bouncing off the walls is the way to go. Managed 1:17:03 with the Cobretti.
