@ null   bro u are not imagining things ! Last night  I was in second place I got hit with S strike after I respawned I had been passed & fell to third place . I WAS s strikes again in third place, respawned I had been passed & was in 5th place & got hit with a third s strike  & fell to last place ! On the last s strike I took there were 3 or 4 cars ahead of me nothing happened to em its like they weren't there ! So the server targeted me as the first place car ! 
5th place & got s striked  ? Hey but then Glitchloft,s bogus lame server sent me to cb . So F this sorry lame poor excuse 4 a race mode ! I had been trying to give it a chance & be open-minded  ! But now I don't want nothing to do with this garbage 👍

Lo. Neilson...Tdy I was doing the single player ****** Down Mode TLE and guess what. First race I was struck by the lightning from heaven twice in first place, dropped to second, struck again by the lightning, dropped to fourth, struck again by the lightning, then just before crossing the finish line in 3rd, struck yet again by the lightning and ended up last...in every race, I was struck at least 3 times by the lightning and how is it even possible for so many lightning strikes to happen within a 1 lap race...and best thing is I don't even get a single hyperboost or shield. Did 8 races just to finally get 1st place and not once did I get hyperboost or shield. And I only got lightning once...

The new Showdown single player TLE is jam-packed with cheaters.   The whole top 100 is under 1:50 and I have no problem saying almost every single one of them is running the no-wreck cheat that keeps them from being struck by anything.

The top 100 in IOS now is 1:45 to 1:48 which is impossible unless you get clean runs.

I dont seem to understand the showdown mode. well i have tried to play it but the thing is i cant use the power-ups. Can someone tell me which keys keys are used to activate weapons, fire, engage them whatever. There is no tutorial for it or maybe i just cant navigate to it.

It’s ‘V’ for the left power-up and ‘B’’ for the right power-up...at least on my keyboard 😉

That's awfully fast even if you don't have all the AI cars attacking you with surge strikes and comets.  I got a time in the low 1:50's by managing to only get struck one time but the other times I tried, I had the AI cars striking me with surge strikes and comets about 4 times on average per race.

The whole top 100 on Windows are below 1:48.   I'm convinced they're almost all using cheats with maybe a few extremely lucky players who managed to avoid every strike by an AI car.

Go into  your game settings (the gear icon in the upper right) and then to controls and click the customize button.    It took me a while before I went and looked and saw that I was already using the default showdown keys for something else so mine weren't working at all.  The game just set them to use keys I was already using.

Finally i had a little time for a game and tried again this mode (single one ofcourse), even i'm so tired. I raped myself and used the whole fuel bar. I was once again covinced that this is the most pathetic thing ever!  Equalised means somebody used this thing disruptor yes? Which is "dead from above" for the first. Or whatever, a laser from above. Total BS. It doesn't matter in wich place is the player, the game decide to FYU and that;s the reason why this mode is created. I should have use my free time for the FC.
When everything goes wrong, CC is your last hope !

@Null
I did 01:47:xxx (could be 01:46:xxx but I was drifting with the shield at the end, for the festival quest!) after a few tries of course.
What it takes is pure luck, and get a couple of shields on the way.
I also go to the 1st place asap and if I don't find a shield in the first 2 power ups, I restart so I don't lose fuel.
HTH
