Hmm... Agree with everything everyone's saying...but it is a nice car though...
I don't know, I've got the time, the tech, the free upgrades - and I'm sitting on 17k tokens ffs, what else am i going to do with them?! - and, I'm bored. Too many events just passing me by. Guess I should have got the beast x - but I didn't... ::)

I dunno. Should I toss a coin? :D

In that case, just go for it and autopass all the stages until you have no tokens left. Then upgrade and pro the car to win it...lol

this a car is nice, but surely is a trap about future event: you'd spend all your tech cards....

The answer is simple. It's a trap. After the player invests time and credits or real money, he will start to feel sorry for the initial investment, and will be forced to push on and pay through the trap in order to get the time and money's worth. If you paid 4000 tokens to upgrade, you wouldn't be happy yo get nothing in the end. So you will be willing to pay any ridiculous price that the game throws at you to be done with it. 

It's not about your convenience. It's about millions of players who are forced to pay compared to 1 of you.

Gaming companies are trying to squeeze as much money as possible from the people before they get regulated by the governments of the world. If you are monitoring EA's Suprise Mechanics, you'd know what I am talking about.

That is obviously their model and it may be effective... but the problem is that it only works once or twice. For instance, once you figure out that opening the 2nd lab in R&D early is pointless, you’ll never do it again. Once you get to the later races for 60 QCs Flawless w/ traffic, time trial, and drifting, you never pay for an event again. GL could keep that model and make it work even better if they reduced their prices from Whale-only amounts to actual micro transactions.

I mostly made this purchase because I want GL to know that this is a reasonable price.

Lab1 AI:
1st try (no upgrade +DB ), 3.5 s behind
2nd try (0101 0000 + DB), 0.9 s behind
3rd try (0201 0000 + DB), 1 s ahead

Even 600LT's first AI is doable without any upgrade, probably we will not pass LAB 3 without pro upgrades.


My tune is MAX 1-1-0-1 PRO 0-0-0-0 DB

And I passed AI by, 03s or 05s.

The first one I won't even attempt to win. Beat the first AI but if he's like this in the first Lab I wouldn't stand a chance during the final AI

I also took that offer, but I passed on a subsequent 80% off deal.
