See my last post, the last AI is easy peasy :)

@pizzaburg: Season 9 gives the standard payout (~11900 with DC, VIP 3), but it's such an easy track this will definitely be my new favourite farmer.

Car won. The last AI was amazingly really easy, did it second try after crashing on the first, but with a very so-so lap. Bonus! :)

So here's my itemised spending spree. Bear in mind that:
1) I had a large token stash and didn't mind losing it.
2) I finished 48 hours early, so could have saved ~1000 quite easily.
3) I'm a very average driver, and if I sensed big trouble looming, I autopassed.

1 x upgrade (I only had 3 free A upgrades left): 2000
1 x V6 engine box (gave me 4, which was enough): 750
Opening labs 3 + 4 early: 2200
Buying keys (see above): 1847
Autopassing
(mainly lab 4 first AI, but also Venice and Iceland flawless - the rest were low-cost bits and pieces rather than buying keys): 3684
Saving QCs (20 x 45): 900

Grand total: 11381 tokens

So not cheap, but it's a nice car, and it was a zero stress Rnd :)

Congratulations Ash! I calculated I spent around 13k tokens. Too much IMO for the car, but I agree it's cool. I need 2 class A free upgrades, so I'll have to wait for the current MP tournament to finish, as well as the next one (if they continue granting free class A upgrades, obviously). As for the cars I don't have, I'm going to wait patiently for them to appear in my garage to buy. R&D's will be for farming tokens and boxes of the respective cars, and I will most probably only try championships due to them being less time consuming than the R&D's and EDD (which I haven't seen lately, BTW). This Ford R&D's has been too much for me in every sense.

I've spent ~2,000 tokens for keys and auto-tests so far.  I'm at test 47.

I had 2 free A class upgrades from MP.  Used them to tune to 4545/5355.  Beaten the first AI of lab 4, test 44, with it TB.  Wall Ascent is a very technical track.  Most of my tokens were drained here.  Many attempts were made.

I'll try to beat the final AI with this tune.  Hopefully I don't have to upgrade any further and to save 4,000 tokens for the 2 TOUs.

Nice lap 👍 That kind of driving is beyond my capabilities :D
You shouldn't have any bother with azure coast.

@vbf: Thanks. I'm done with Rnds too. At least, until my tokens are burning a hole and I get suckered in again... :lol:

@Jax... nice.. was playing it safe on that one.. if I had spent 500-1000 tokens on refills and didnt win.. I would have hated myself for spending even more on autopass.. so I only did only 3 attempts... Hopefully the last AI will be little easier.

Nice drive Smokejax, but you use only one speed up in air and there are atleast 4.

I had to use DT, first time since months, to pass the 1st AI in lab 3. 4515-0000. No way to put any pro cards with these requirements and prices. But i bought 1 BP McLaren 720 for 900 tokens and will assemble it in a few days, if GL not scam me somehow, because it'll be immediate uninstall. Not that i need it, but i'm tired to wait for revivals on specific cars like this, or AR8SE, or M2SE.
When everything goes wrong, CC is your last hope !
