My quest here is for a full unboosted week. Based on your experience, I guess Iceland should be ok. I can't try right now, I have ET on, will try later.

Yeah, you'll probably be fine. I just **** at the Iceland track and I didn't have any max/pro cars for it. Boosted, I beat the best time by 1.5 sec.

Tested: all five available cars can easily pass the sprint unboosted, if maxpro.
My reference when having to do Iceland reverse without taking the tunnel is a big rock, as shown in the pics below. I try to pass as close as possible to the left of this rock and then we reach the main road with a sharp left turn.

Unboosted 4404/5050 W motors Fenyr Supersport...nil.

Didn't realize that the boosted version is +37. This is a car that is seriously underpowered considering how much it costs for upgrades.

**** it. Raced again DB and got two trophys. Secured the engine boxes. No way I can achieve the tokens.

Just got the last 3 trophies using the X2 db. Probably, could do it unboosted, but I wanted to make sure and finish in one shot. I'll probably go back and try unboosted later. Will probably run with the Nemesis also. Not as fast as the X2, but the acceleration is glorious. 👍

Anyway, 21 trophies means 75 tokens tomorrow.

Good luck everyone.

I already tried unboosted, could not make it.
Got a better time with Centenario (half second slower, still) than with X2, but I missed the yellow nitro bottle for the X2.
Then another mistake with the Apollo.
I will keep trying...

I tried again unboosted with the X2. I’m half a second short of the best time. Still think it is possible, but I still haven’t done a perfect run yet. Also, the ghost is distracting. Wish there was a way to disable it.

Damn it. Tried three more times with X2.
In 2nd attempt, I was gifted with a half roll in that last flat ramp.
3rd attempt, I did a good run, and got time 35:012.
I may give up, after this last attempt, and go DB.
Too frustrating to miss the target by just one frame!

Three more tries with the X2 unboosted. 35.129 was my best time. Crashed on the first two runs. Didn't even beat 40 on the second run. 😛

I rescind my earlier confidence about competing it it unboosted. With a perfect run, maybe it is possible, but I'm just an average driver; so, I may not make it. I'll try a few more times; as, my fuel replenishes. At least, it is not a time unattainable if using boosts. That would have been quite frustrating. This is just a fun challenge whose reward is the satisfaction of competing it and nothing else.

If I could make it just one frame above the target, I am sure the PROs can do it rather easily.
Tried three more times but I am having a silly problem... I miss that yellow nitro bottle too often.
