MCLA Goal Attack Guide and Tips

Hello everyone! Here is a guide on how to complete the Goal Attack Mode. Goal Attack is a challenge mode where one must win races within a specific time limit and must complete the race with less than 25% damage to their vehicle. Each race will also automatically set the race to Midnight time of day and Clear weather, with normal traffic and Special Abilities disabled, and the player races against 3 random Medium difficulty opponents.

To enter Goal Attack, do the said procedure below:
1. Press Start
2. Press RB (Xbox)/R1 (PS)
3. Scroll down to the second option, Goal Attack
4. Press A (Xbox)/X (PS)

There are a total of 74 races in the main game, and an additional 26 races with the South Central Expansion, and each Goal Attack has the same objectives that have to be fulfilled in order to successfully pass the challenge.

In order to master a Goal Attack, you must do all of the three objectives below in the same race.
-Finish in 1st place
-Finish the race under the specified time limit.
-Finish the race with less than 25% damage on your vehicle (A yellow bar indicates how much damage you can take before exceeding the limit)

Special abilities (Zone, Agro, Roar, EMP) are disabled for the Goal Attack races.

In circuit races, make sure to use all nitrous before the second lap as this will just refill the used up nitrous.

Each main game race must be unlocked through the main story missions, with the final race (Studio Hills) being unlocked after you defeat Andrew for the second time. The South Central races are already available at the game start, and have less stricter times to complete.

The best vehicles to use for the Goal Attacks are a fully upgraded Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster (either the normal or DUB Edition) or Audi R8.

A motorcycle, especially the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 or Ducati 1098R, if you can handle them properly can also help due to their lighter weight, which can make them accelerate faster, weave through traffic and handle responsively at the expense of being more prone to damage, making it easier and faster to reach or exceed the 25% damage limit, so be careful when using the motorcycles for Goal Attacks.
