For me (I expect most players), this is a farming event for tokens and cards with the investment of a few credits - nothing more. Very casual play so it does not matter when start, when you probably have no intention of going all the way to end.

90+ High Tech Cards is just not realistic without cash purchases. 4 TOU make it even more ridiculous.

I wonder why Gameloft makes ridiculous events like this. Be honest you just want players to spend money. So simply offer the car for purchase with cash and eliminate the event - save everybody the effort and annoyance.
 

I AGREE. I'll start the event teh very last day

The speeds I've posted are MAXPRO+TK applied.

edit: Wait wut. I don't understand your question, you posted the Beast Alpha as comparison.

 

I did and I apologize. This thread about another insane event and the other one about the showdown festival (bribing me with tokens to play showdown races?) have left me very confused. 
I feel so conflicted.

I agree.   I think more people would just buy the cars outright if they offered them for sale at stock.  Nobody wants to waste all their resources on an event like this then still be forced to pay in the end.

I have 199 cars, over 1 million coins and around 4250 tokens earned through MP, TLE's and daily missions. I have to agree with you that my strategy now is as you say: save tokens for when the cars go on sale directly on those weekend sales. It's less insane than checking the game every 2 hours to make the R&;D race(s) with the proto keys. I'll be using the Ford event to earn tokens and boxes.

Actually the free2play handbook says the opposite. Straight giving players end game content leads to boredom and uninstall. Gambling and luring, habiting techniques as R&D proto keys, forcing the player to put in effort before he is required to pay, these all help to increase number of payments.
