    I predict the Opera S2000 will be the choice for this one.

    Nope. FR only.

    I ran the first race at 470pp with the Opera and won by 30+ seconds.

    PP bonus calculates to 5% for these events.

    Mazda Miata Touring Car [the DLC one] works great for this event, slowly detuning it, but I have it around 425pp right now and it beat the Series One by approx. 6 seconds. This has only been tested on the Cape Ring event so far.

    Most of the fast cars that can compete really well at less than 450pp are MRs. Most notibly the GSX, Elise, and NSX.

    Took out the Callaway C12 for the first time ever at Mt. Aso. I seem to vaguely recall the track but it was a lot of fun until I realized that the lead 2 cars run away while the rest of the field are moving chicanes. Managed to take the lead on lap 5 of 7 and won by 10 seconds. PP was at 475 with dirty oil.

    Yes but...

    The event is FR only. :lol:


    I tried the HSR event at 400PP in the Opera. I managed 2nd. Better than I expected for 100PP down at HSR. Bumped it up to 410 and won. I'm confident 400PP will be easy at more technical tracks.

    EDIT: I did the CR event at 400 and won by 13 seconds. Too easy. As usual the Opera is dominant.

    395PP 86GT at Cape Ring Inner, got first and won 950,000 with a 110% bonus. So 7 minutes for 1.7+ million credits, not bad at all.

    Just did R246 in a 460pp C63. Finished 3rd with roughly a 365000cr payout. Note to self: C63 is a tankslapper no matter what.


    And a quick checklist:
    Proper FR event: check
    Fun and reasonable PP setting (no 650pp roadcar BS): check
    Same boring rolling start: check
    Same :censored: start in the back of the pack: check

    Yeah, I'm getting tired of this BS. Every event is the same - find a car that drives well, hit "start race", blast to 4th/3rd within a lap or two, and then try to hone in on the leader on the very last lap at the very last second. It's always the same, but with different cars, tracks, and restrictions. I hate it. BUT, it's the only way to make an actual profit since the A-spec races practially rob you blind.

    No wonder I'm itching to get a new Xbox (fyi, current Xbox is broken) - that way I can finally get some variety with cars and races. This isn't the '90s PD, this is the 21st century - get with the program.

    You sure about those figures? I just did the same track, with the same car @ 390pp and I only got this:

    1,125,695

    And that was with a 200% login bonus. :confused:

    I earned roughly 950k with a 110% login bonus. So given the maths it should be about 1.72 million. Are you sure you won it? I did earn about 660k for second place at 390PP (With a 110% bonus.) I'm gonna go boost my login bonus and try again.

    Got 532k at 2nd place at Cape Ring in a 405pp 86GT with some very mediocre driving. I could see some of the seasoned guys getting this at like 375pp. Maybe even lower than that.

    Tried it myself with a 395pp 86GT. Got about 1.086 million with a 200% bonus. Maybe your math is wrong? I *think* the game goes by multiplying your 1st place prize money by your daily bonus and then adds your PDA bonus.

    I realized that afterwards, the login bonus doesn't work for the extra credits earned. It only affects the base amount.

    How disappointing. I was actually pretty excited for that 1.7.

    Ditto, I thought the login bonus also went through the PDA. Still, not a bad amount of credits.
    Try it with the M3 '04 at the front of the pack. It's roughly 10-15 seconds slower overall then the Series One.
