The car restore ticket works real well to get rid of those miles. Hint, Hint.

Yeah but then I have to either send the car twice or lose a ticket forever.  Nuts to that.  Easier to lurk the OCD.

Othere thricks to us is to save your game play for that day (On a Memory stick of Flash drive) used the restore coupon and send the car to you secend account. Then Reload your game save and then the next day send the car back to your self. Or you can also do with a friend to get the car back that same day.

That is what I meant by 'send the car twice'. Smiley Happy

Or you could send once to a friend and have that friend send it back.

I'd do it, but am not volunteering. I'm sure yuou have some friend who could benefit from free 0-miles cars? Note you can also use those DLC paints safely at the same time, if you have any you would like to use more than once...

But then White R34 just said the same thing. sorry for repeating...

Thanks guys, but if they were important cars I'd have acquired them somehow already.  One more NA Miata trim package, a RWD Skyline, and an R129 SL500 are just not that unique or useful.

I wonder if these events are more difficult now that the PP formula has been revised?

For Indy, I tried the strategy of adding as much weight as possible, so that I could have maximum HP.  I also fiddled with the gears (especially the top 2) since you don't really need much below 60 mph.  No spoiler (too much drag).  And I think I used medium blower rather than high blower.  It took several tries, but I finally won.

Still having problem with London.  Since there are a lot of corners and speed changes, I am trying the opposite strategy: light car with less HP.  However, I am experimenting with one car that has 50/50 weight distribution.  Again, no spoiler.   But still only able to get to about 10 secs behind leader.

p.s. My RL car is a '90 Miata, so this challenge is kind of fun.
