CSR2 Event Guides – Trinity Cup Event

We have always some events going on in CSR2, no matter if that’s Gold Events, Flash Events or bigger events. In this guide I will give you tips for the cars you can use there (including tuning and shift pattern) as well as additional tips for the event (like what Stage 6 parts you need) and more.

This guide here will get updated frequently with upcoming events.

Trinity Cup (January 19th, 2022)

First Trinity Cup after quite some time and a tough spot for many players deciding if it’s worth participating. But more on that below, first the lock-in cars:

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
Koenigsegg Agera RS 5 #1-2 Click here
Bugatti Divo 5 #1-2 Click here
Pagani Huayra BC 5 #1/2 Click here

So, you will need all three cars to complete it and there will be no prize car.

If you already have two of the cars and like the missing one, do the event. Most of you will either have the Huayra BC from the Europe Series (from the ShowDown Store), so here it’s where it gets tricky. The Bugatti Divo is a nice car to get but the Agera RS is an old car and not a car you have seen in any event, except the SupercarScience Event more than a year ago, so it’s basically pretty worthless in the future as well. Also mind that you need to spend about $6 million for upgrading to Stage 5 plus the fusion parts for each car! If you’re not a huge fan of the cars or want them, I’d rather wait for what the Update 3.7 is offering.

If you have none of the cars you really should skip the event. Investing 210 Gold Keys here and maxing the cars for no prize car is pretty insane (at least in my opinion). Save the keys and cash and wait what events the next update will bring in terms of events.

Fast & Furious Original Event Event (January 10th, 2022)

And here’s the second Fast & Furious Event from the current Update 3.6:

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
W-Motors Lykan Hypersport 5 #1 Click here
Nissan Silvia Spec S (S15) ‘Mona Lisa’ 5 #1 Click here
Chevrolet ASC Camaro Z28 4 #2 Click here
Nissan Veilside Fairlady Z (Z33) 4 #2 Click here
Mazda Veilside Fortune RX-7 4 #3-#5 Click here
Mitsubishi APR Lancer Evolution IX 4 #3-#5 Click here
Mazda Veilside ‘VSD1-GT’ RX-8 4 #3-#5 Click here
Final Event:
Nissan Top Secret Fairlady Z (Z33) 4 Final Click here

It’s a little more friendly to F2P and you can get the Lykan Hypersport for about 3,000 Gold. It’s a 4-Star car that you might already have pulled earlier from crates and investing the Gold makes sense if you have plenty of Gold or you plan on finishing the event. Buying it to only to the 7 lock-in races with it doesn’t make sense. For the 2nd lock-in you can use the ASC Camaro that ahs been a Prestige Cup car like 2 years+ ago.

Then it’s about exclusive F&F cars plus the RX-8 that you need to purchase to win the final prize car. It’s the same structure as the previous event so if you’re not a fan or have some of them already you should think twice about investing in it, especially as we don’t know much about upcoming events in the future that might have a way better reward structure. The final car is the Mustang Fastback which is a cool car but not worth upgrading and buying all the cars, in my opinion.

Ferrari Duality Cup (January 3rd, 2022)

Next Duality Cup is here and it’s about the Ferrari Enzo Ferrari and the new Ferrari 599XX Evo. The Enzo Ferrari was the prize car for the ShowDown in one of the major Events in the Europe Series so check if you already have the purple star version that you can also use in this event.

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
Ferrari Enzo 5 #1/2 Click here
Ferrari 599XX Evo 5 #1/2 Click here

The 599xx Evo is a new car and you need to pull it. Solid car and if you’re after the prize car and already have the Enzo it’s a decent event to participate in actually.

Please mind! The Enzo Ferrari and the prize car of this event, the Ferrari FXX Evoluzione share Stage 6 parts! Depending on how many you already have on the Enzo can make a huge difference here!

Fast & Furious Original Event Event (December 23rd, 2021)

After quite some time we have another Fast  Furious Event coming up:

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
Nissan Silvia (S15) Rocket Bunny 4 #1 Click here
Mitsubishi Eclipse 4 #1 Click here
Honda VARIS Civic Type R 3 #2 Click here
Volkswagen Jetta 4 #2 Click here
Mazda Veilside RX-7 4 #3-#5 Click here
Nissan Skyline GT-R (R33) 4 #3-#5
Nissan STILLEN Maxima (A32) 4 #3-#5 Click here
Final Event:
Nissan Endless Zeal 240SX (S14) 5 Final

If you’re F2P, I’d recommend using the Silvia and Varis for the first two lock-ins and go to Race #17 and call it a day, it’s some nice rewards to pick up for little effort and most players have the cars already. If you don’t have the Varis, you can get it for Elite Custom Credits.

If you want to go through the full event and want to win the iconic Toyota Supra Aearotop, you will have to buy the #3-#5 lock-in cars for cold hard cash and also max out the prize car for the main event, the Endless Zeal 240SX which is a super mediocre T5 car with 7.7s final time…  I personally won’t do it but I also skip pretty much all F&F events because I find the prize/cost ratio there is absurd and I can only assume that the Fast & Furious franchise takes that much money. I mean it’s up to you but I personally believe that buying 3 T4 cars with real cash and max them to win a mediocre T5 car that I also have to max to get a prize car that we already had 1.5 years ago (plus the fact it’s all purple star cars so more cash is required to get Stage 6 Upgrades that you need) is just not enough for me. But I can understand those saying the love the F&F franchise and the Supra Aerotop is the amazing car they can’t miss go for this event. I just want to give my honest opinion here 🙂

LB-Works X-Mas Event (December 21st, 2021)

This year we also get a Christmas Event, unfortunately without a final prize car but with many LB-Works cars to get or max out:

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
BMW LB M3 GTS 3 #1 Click here
Maserati LB GranTurismo MC Stradale 4 #1 Click here
Nissan LB GT-R (R35) Premium 4 #1 Click here
BMW LB i8 4 #2 Click here
Honda LB NSX 4 #2 Click here
Mercedes-Benz LB C63 AMG Coupe Black Series 4 #2 Click here
McLaren LB 650S 5 #3 Click here
Lamborghini LB Silhouette Huracan Coupe 5 #3 Click here
Lamborghini LB Aventador Coupe (any version) 5 #4 Click here

I personally think the cars are fine and for each lock-in tier there will be cars available for Gold in the dealership so you can do this event F2P if you stockpiled enough Gold, Bronze Keys and Cash. I pretty sure that you already have several of these cars (also upgraded) so this is a great chance to get some more fusion parts and Stage 6 parts for those cars.

I recommend checking very carefully which cars to lock-in. The Christmas Event has been quite easy so far so you only need 2-3 Stage 6 parts for a car to finish so you might not lock in the maxed cars if you can also get some parts that you’re missing. Of course this depends how much time you want to invest into grinding cash or how much you saved/want to save for the upcoming events early in 2022. After all, I really hoped for a prize car, but it’s a nice event with nice rewards for every player after all and that’s what Christmas is all about so I’m happy and looking forward to it and comple

Italian SupercarScience Event (December 14th, 2021)

Huge event upcoming with actually a nice prize car that will run below 6.8 seconds:

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
*any Italian car* 3-5 #1 Click here
Maserati MC12 Stradale 5 #2-#5 Click here
Ferrari F8 Tributo 5 #2-#5 Click here
Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 5 #2-#5 Click here
ATS Automobili GT 5 #2-#5 Click here
Pagani Huayra R 5 #6 Click here

If you have any of the cars already upgraded it can be a decent event for you, especially with the new Countach as one of the paid lock-in cars. If you’re F2P you can use the 1st lock-in to get some more fusions.

SSC Duality Evo Cup (December 7th, 2021)

A super interesting Evo Cup with 2 great cars that both can run below 7 seconds and are obtainable with Gold Keys in the Gold Star version. I highly recommend pulling here, even if you don’t plan to finish the event for the prize car, the SSC Tuatara ‘World Record Editin’.

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
SSC Tuatara ‘Concept* 5 #1/2 Click here
Hennessey Venom F5 ‘Concept’ 5 #1/2 Click here

Again, you will get nice cars with some Stage 6 parts for both cars that I can recommend having. If you want to go for the prize car you very likely need to almost max out the cars. But even if not, you will pick up some Stage 6 parts and as a Gold car you can also invest some more Bronze Keys for extra parts which is a great thing.

Hoonigan VS The World 2 Event (November 29th, 2021)

Cool car? Check. Nice event? Check. The only downside of this event is that you need to pay about $20 for the car. No Gold Keys, cold hard cash. And also one event crate will be $3.99.

Here’s tunes and shift pattern for the Hoonicorn V2, Stage 5 and Stage 6 including the Stage 6 effects.

I really love the car, it’s absolutely easy to drive, performs well, makes up on top of the list below 6.8 seconds. If you really want it you can also get it and see how far you can get in the event and I think you still have a nice car compared what other cars you normally get charged that amount of money for. Also Ford fusions aren’t that hard to get…

Actually a decent event, even if you need to pay. We’ve seen a lot worse from NM.

Next up will be the SSC Tuatara Event so stockpile some cash and Gold Keys, it will be worth it!

Earning Earnhardt & Road To Nascar Events (November 22nd, 2021)

This event consists of 2 parts, the first one Earning Earnhardt is a 4-lockin event with a final prize car that will unlock the Road To Nascar event once finished which is basically a Duality Cup.

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
Earning Earnhardt

Cadillac CTS-V 4 #2 Click here

Ford Mustang Cobra Jet 5 #3-4 Click here
Road To Nascar
ForeverLawn Zero Camaro SS NASCAR Xfinity 5 #1 soon
Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE NASCAR or ForeverLawn version (Price #10 reward) 5 #12 soon

My take on this event… well, mixed. I haven’t been a huge fan of the whole Nascar, GT3, F1 and whatever crossover cars we’ve seen recently in CSR2 so I’m not going for the final here. Still, you can have a nice event with some nice cars and I don’t expect much more events (away from the SSC Event) before we get a Christmas Event that will be F2P friendly. So, you can use the time stock your cash up a little bit to see what the 3.6 update will bring or you can invest here if you like the Nascar cars. I personally won’t invest anything here besides the cars that I already own with a couple of upgrades, but that’s just my personal opinion.

If you have the cash, the mood and the carsor Gold Keys, the two options with the Cobra Jet and the Exorcist are both sweet cars that both run below 7 seconds. Don’t forget that you can pick up the Cadillac CTS-V in the shop for 3,000 Gold if you haven’t gotten it, it’s kind of a nice deal if you have the Gold…

Aston Martin Duality Cup (November 16th, 2021)

First post-Europe Series event has started and it’s a Duality Cup and those players within milestone crews will have a nice event:

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
Arrinera Hussarya 5 #1/2 Click here
Aston Martin DBS Superleggera 5 #1/2 Click here

If you don’t have the cars I recommend waiting for the upcoming SSC Event where you can pull the SSC Tuatara for Gold Keys, a really fast car.

Elite Tuners: Global Tuners (July 2021)

For Series 4 of Elite Tuners, there’s also an 80 ladder races event planned, called Elite Tuners: Global Tuners. The lock-ins are divided by tuning companies as you can see in the table below:

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
BMW ACS2 Sport 3 #1 Click here
BMW ACS4 3 #1 Click here
BMW ACS8 4 #1 Click here
BMW ACS8 (Prismatic) 4 #1 Click here
VARIS BMW M4 GTS 4 #2 Click here
VARIS Honda Civic Type R 3 #2 Click here
VARIS Subaru WRX STI 4 #2
Honda AIMGAIN GT NSX 4 #3 Click here
Porsche 911 RWB 5 #4 Click here
Porsche 993 RWB Rotana 5 #4 Click here
Vorsteiner Audi R8 VRS 5 #5 Click here
Vorsteiner McLaren 720S 5 #5
Vorsteiner McLaren 570-VX 5 #5 Click here

The overall structure is alright, it’s pretty realistic that you picked up a ACSx from pulling Silver Crates and the VARIS M4 GTS was the Prestige Cup car not that long ago.

I think the AIMGAIN can be tough but will very likely be available for Gold. Only a few people have the RWB or a Vorsteiner unless having been lucky with pulls so more Gold will be needed.

My recommendation if you should take part in the event depends how many lock-in cars you already have and how upgraded they are.

CSR2 America Series – Pacifica Duality Cup (June 21st, 2021)

Next event incoming and here’s the end of the F2P.

CSR2 America Series – 24 Hours in Santa Palma (June 10th, 2021)

Next event incoming and here’s the end of the F2P.

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
Lamborghini Huracan Coupe 5 #1 Click here
BMW M8 Competition Pride Convertible 5 #1 Click here

ATS Automobili RR Turbo 5 #4
Koenigsegg Jesko Aboslut 5 #4 Click here
Koenigsegg Jesko 5 #4 Click here
Ford 2015 GT LM 5 #5

The 1st Lock-In will be one of the same cars we had in the previous event (plus the M8 Pride Convertible that we all got for free), but building any of these cars without getting further in the event isn’t a smart idea as you will need to lock in the 2nd car after a few ladder races.

For Lock-In 2 and 3 you need both, the Donkervoort that you can get for Gold and the Ultima RS that you can pull for Gold Keys. From here you need either the prize car of the Ultralight Dreams event or buy the Jesko with real money. This event is only for those who are willing to go for the final events of the America Series and not for F2P.

CSR2 America Series – Ultralight Dreams (June 3rd, 2021)

Another Duality Cup in the America Series and it will be all about the Ultima RS and the ATS Automobili GT. In short, this is not an event for any F2P as both manufacturers have really rare fusion parts and if you don’t already have one of them I don’t recommend you to do this event.

The prize car will be the ATS Automobili RR Turbo, the GT3 version of the ATS Automobili GT and, frankly, with a time around 7.4xx seconds nothing than a mediocre car in T5. The bad news is that you will need this car in “24 Hours in Santa Palma” which runs in 2 weeks if you DON’t have the Koenigsegg Jesko! If you have the Jesko and want to take part in the later events you don’t have to do this Duality Cup!

In case you want to do it, here are the setups that should help you:

CSR2 America Series – From Europe With Love (May 22nd, 2021)

The next event of the America Series is coming:

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
Lamborghini Huracan Coupe 5 #1 Click here
Mercedes Benz C 63 AMG Coupe Edition 507 3 #1 Click here
Audi RS 5 Coupe 3 #1 Click here
BMW M235i Coupe 2 #1 Click here

Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport 5 #3 Click here
Ferrari FXX K Evo 5 #3 Click here
Ford 2021 GT ‘Heritage Edition’ 5 #4 Click here
Ford 2019 GT ‘Heritage Edition’ 5 #4 Click here
Apollo Intensa Emozione 5 #4 Click here
Audi R8 LMS 5 #5 Click here

For the 1st Lock-In you can use one of the above cars but none that you have used in a previous event. Still, you should have one of them already upgraded well – otherwise, use the lowest tier one to save some cash.

Lock-In #2 will be the BAC Mono that is available in the dealership for 3,950 Gold if you haven’t already have it. It’s a decent car so if you’re willing to go through this event you can invest the Gold but only if you have one of the cars for Lock-In #4!

For Lock-In #4 you can use any of the cars in Hyperworld or pull them from the Gold Crates. They are all decent-ish T4 cars and if you want to have one of them it’s absolutely no mistake to invest the Gold Keys. As F2P I wouldn’t do it (especially with all the cash you need).

Lock-In #4 is the prize car from the first event, not any car you want to invest in as it’s quite slow but if you want to go through this event it’s mandatory.

The last Lock-In is the R8 LMS that you will need top buy some tickets for, you will not have earned enough if you got the Huracan GT3 EVO in the Sound of the Wind Event. A nice car but be aware that you have to invest real money crates to get the parts needed to finish this event.

CSR2 America Series – Hyperworld (May 17th, 2021)

The next event of the CSR2 America Series is coming:

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
Zenvo TS1-GT 5 #1-3 Click here
Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport 5 #1-3 Click here
Ferrari FXXK Evo 5 #1-3 Click here

You will need all 3 cars to finish the event and there’s no prize car in Hyperworld, so it’s for the sake of the America Series an optional event that you don’t need to participate in if you want to go for the final prize car of the event series.

All 3 cars will be available with Gold Crates, so if you don’t have some of these cars already you will have to invest up to 210 Golden Keys and all 3 cars are decent, yes, but no cars that perform really well.

My take here is that, if you really want one of these cars or already have some go for it. You need only 2 Stage 6 upgrades on them to finish the Hyperworld Event so that’s not that difficult. Still, upgrading 3 T5 cars is a ton of cash so as a F2P I’d stay away from this and prepare for one of the upcoming events in terms of cash and keys instead of getting optional older cars.

CSR2 America Series – Sound of the Wind (May 6th, 2021)

The next event of the CSR2 America Series is coming and it also has some interesting parts:

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
Lamborghini Huracan Coupe 5 #1 Click here
Mercedes Benz C 63 AMG Coupe Edition 507 3 #1 Click here
Audi RS 5 Coupe 3 #1 Click here
BMW M235i Coupe 2 #1 Click here

Mercedes-Benz GT Black Series 5 #3 Click here
Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport 5 #4 Click here
Glickenhaus 003S 5 #4 Click here
Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO 5 #5 Click here

The 1st Lock-In is super broad and I’m sure that you have at least one car pretty well upgraded. Take the one that you have upgraded most or – if you need to get one – take the lowest tier car to save money upgrading it.

For the 2nd Lock-In you need to invest Gold Keys to get the VUHL 05RR if you don’t have it already. It’s no popular car but you will need it.

3rd Lock-In only makes sense when you also took part in The Ring and have the GT Black Series well-upgraded. The Ring also provides with the 911 RS Clubsport that will make the Lock-in #4.

For the final Lock-In you need the Huracan GT3 EVO that you can get for 4,000 Event Tickets. If you have collected all Event Tickets so far you have them, maybe you need to invest a few dollars to get the missing ones.

CSR2 America Series – Pro Leagues Avenue (April 29th, 2021)

The first event of the upcoming CSR2 America Series events and it’s actually a pretty F2P friendly event. First of all, here are the lock-ins:

Car Tier Lock-In Setup
Ford Mustang RTR Spec 3 5 #1 Click here
Dodge Viper ACR Extreme Aero 5 #2-#5 Click here
BMW VARIS M4 GTS 4 #2-#5 Click here
Dodge Viper ACR 4 #2-#5 Click here

MINI John Cooper Works GP 2 #2-#5 Click here
Ford Mustang Boss 302 1 #2-#5 Click here
Hyundai Veloster Turbo R Spec 1 #2-#5 Click here

The first car is a new one that you will get for free when the event starts. The Spec 3 Mustang is a slow T5 car so don’t put more into it than you have to for the event. The other cars, well, give you plenty of options and you should already own some of them

I recommend locking in those that you have already upgraded so you have a much easier path through the event. Remember, there are more events coming and once you locked in on of the cars above, you won’t be able to lock them in within an upcoming event.

The prize car will be the 2021 Ford GT ‘Heritage Edition’, a purple 5-Star T5 car that you will need in one of the following events as lock-in car. In my opinion a really nice starting event for everyone.

SupercarScience Finale (April 22nd, 2021)

We had a couple of SupercarScience Events and re-runs in the past months and here’s the final event for a great car but it also requires that you have gotten plenty of paid cars so far. You can only lock in one car of each manufacturer per slot. You can lock them in in any order, but you need to use one of each manufacturer once. This means you can use either the Chiron Super Sport 300 or the Bolide, but once used one you can’t use any Bugatti for any other lock-in anymore.

The prize car can run solid below 7 seconds and is really decent to drive – but I only recommend you to run this event if you either have the lock-in cars from the SupercarScience Events already or you’re missing like 1-2 cars. Lock in the faster cars as you will get the crates that will help you get Stage 6 parts like for the Bugatti Bolide, Valkyrie, etc. (they have been paid crates during their SupercarSCience Events).

Rocket Bunny Easter Event (March 29th, 2021)

Just in time for the Easter Holiday we have the Rocket Bunny Event as we already got 2020 and 2019. This time the prize car is the new Rocket Bunny NSX-R, a great performing Tier 4 car with a lot of style (see here times and tunes)

The good news is, you won’t need to spend any real money, if you already have some Rocket Bunny cars or a nice bunch of Gold stockpiled up as you can get all cars with Gold.

Here are the cars you can use and lock-in, I highly recommend that you use those that are missing some Stage 6 parts to get the missing ones from the crates:

Supercar Science – Aston Martin Event (March 17th, 2021)

Another Supercar Science Event is coming up and this one is actually a one where it is worth using saved up Gold Keys with not only a nice full reward car but also nice options in between.

The first lock-in will be almost any Aston Marton with loads of Milestone cars so you very likely have one already. I’m sure that they will give out the Vanquish for free and your best choice will be the Aston Martin DBX which was the Prestige Car a couple weeks ago.

After that you can also pull the Aston Martin Valhalla Concept for Gold Keys and this car is a car you should pull for. Not only can it run the 7.0xx seconds, it also is really fast without any Stage 6 parts, running around 8 seconds – so this car will give you the option to win the Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro from the ShowDown Event which will be your 3rd or 4th lock-in car as well.

It’s not 100% confirmed, but if you have the Vulcan and the Vulcan AMR Pro already, you can’t use both for the event. It would be really odd if this would be possible as it would allow players to finish the event without buying any car for real money (and that never happened before).

You will need to buy the Aston Martin V12 Speedster ‘DBR1’. It looks cool and also runs around 7.1xx seconds.

The final lock-in car will be the prize car, the Valkyrie ‘Track Pack’ and this car approaches the top list really hard, I’ve seen it run 6.8xx seconds on the developer build so expect this to be a car worth going for!

Here are the lock-in cars with the recommended tunes (I will update them in the next 1-2 days completely):

Car Lock-In Best Time Tune & Shift

Aston Martin Valhalla Concept #2-#5 7.010 Click here
Aston Martin One-77 #2-#5 8.074 Click here
Aston Martin Valkyrie ‘Track Pack’ #6 6.850 Click here

My thoughts… if you have several Aston Martin cars already this event will be a no-brainer. Also as F2P with Gold Keys saved up the Valhalla Concept is a nice car going after.

Also, getting the Vantage Roadster and getting Stage 6 for that car from crates will help a lot as this will be the Season car in Season 125 (in April).

Overall, this is by far the best Supercar Science Event we had so far and absolutely worth going for!

Supercar Science – Pagani Event (February 25th, 2021)

Another Supercar Science Event is coming up. Well, the developers said they will do them more frequently after they got such “great feedback” (their words, not mine) after the first one featuring Koenigsegg. Well, but the feedback was better because it wasn’t with 5 lock-ins where we need to purchase 3 from with real money and there’s only 1 single new car in the whole event which isn’t even the prize car but needs to be purchased with money, the Pagani Imola. All other cars are either from the Pagani Event or the Made in Italy Event from 2019.

The first lock-in will be the Pagani Huayra and if you have been playing in Summer of 2019 when the Pagani Event was on you already got it for free there so check before you spend Gold for it.

From here it will get more difficult with the second lock-in which is either the Huayra BC or Roadster which were also part of the Pagani Event in 2019. If you haven’t gotten them there (or luckily pulled them from crates in the meantime), you will probably have to spend some Gold Keys here  to get one of them.

3rd to 5th lock-in will then be the Pagani Imola (available for real money), the Huayra Roadster in the special edition (probably available in the corresponding ShowDown Event) or the HP Barchetta.

The prize car for this event is the Pagani Zonda Revolution, a solid car that can run 7.1xx seconds and was the main prize car back in the Made in Italy Event in 2019.

Here are the lock-in cars with the recommended tunes, also for Stage 5:

Tires: 0/100
Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta #3-5 7.198 5 Click here
Pagani Imola *NEW* #3-5 7.183 5 Click here

My thoughts… Well, if you’re F2P and you got the Huayra 4-Star for free in the last event, use it for some races. Don’t spend Gold on it it’s a super slow T5 car and there’s no way you will have success unlocking the 3rd lock-in car in the ShowDown event with it, even if you have all the S6 parts intstalled.

Even as player who spends money on CSR2, I wouldn’t do it unless you already have 3 of the cars and you really want the Pagani Imola, which is a decent car. I actually have mixed feeling about this event as even the prize car is in the game since 2019 so think carefully about if that’s worth it to you or if you rather would wait for a better event (I’m sure there are enough manufacturers left to make such events in the next weeks for…)

Supercar Science – McLaren Event

A new manufacturer Supercar Science event is coming and this time we have McLaren cars. The final prize car of this event will be the McLaren Speedtail, not a new car as we already had it like 1 year ago. Still, it’s a car capable of running below 7 seconds and needed to get the new McLaren Elva.

But first things first, there will be 80 races in the event and you need to lock-in a total of 5 cars. Thie first lock-in will be any McLaren car you have and the next 4 lock-ins are in the order you like and include McLaren cars we’ve seen in prior events.

For the first lock-in I have the McLaren 570S below as you can get it for cash in the dealership so everyone can use it. for the other McLaren cars please check out the full tunes chart where you can filter for McLaren cars 🙂

Here are the lock-in cars with the recommended tunes, also for Stage 5:

*Update* The McLaren P1 GTR ‘Pebble Beach’ is the prize car in the McLaren ShowDown event that you can unlock at 1200 trophies.

Elite Tuner – LBWK (Liberty Walk) Cup 2021

Upcoming is the Liberty Walk Event that fits into the latest Elite Tuner Update with all cars that use the LB body kit. There are 3 lock-in cars and you are pretty likely to already have the lock-in cars so you’re looking at an event that will give you nice rewards.

There are no sprint races in this event which makes it a lot easier picking the cars if you have the option. As the first lock-in, I’d recommend the M3 over the RS5 over the SRT Hellcat. Also for the reason how you can get fusion parts. For the second lock-in, the LB NSX is very likely the better option as many have it already well-upgraded from ShowDown.

For Lock-in #3 you can either use the LB Silhouette Huracan that was rewarded in the Holiday Cup and pretty easy to get or you can also use the regular version Huracan. I’m not sure if they will remove the regular Huracan for the lock-in #3, but if not, this is a great way to accumulate rewards.

As always, here’s the overview with the tunes to all the cars to help you squeeze the best out of this event:

Cars Lock-In Best Time Tier Tune & Shift (Stage 5 + 6)
Audi LB RS5 Coupe #1 8.284 3 Click here
BMW LB M3 GTS #1 8.352 3 Click here
Dodge LB SRT Hellcat #1 8.733 3 Click here
Honda LB NSX #2 9.882 4 Click here
Audi 2014 LB R8 V10 plus Coupe #2 10.727 4 Click here
Lamborghini LB Silhouette Huracan Coupe #3 7.470 (Elite) 5 Click here
Lamborghini LB Aventador Coupe* #3 5
Lamborghini Huracan* #3 7.8898 (Elite) 5
LB Lamborghini Huracan Coupe #3 8.227 5

* It also looks like you can’t use the purple star version of the LB Aventador Coupe that everyone of use got for free a while ago. Please be careful with the info below before the event starts, I have heard rumors that the developers could change some things before the event starts! I try to keep this updated as well as possible but I don’t want you to invest in a car that can possibly become obsolete 🙁

Also, please keep in mind that the times for the event races will adapt to your locked-in ride, so choosing the faster car won’t mean that you will have an easier time beating the event. Lock-in the car you want to get some fusions and Stage 6 parts for.

Elite Tuner – Donna’s Elite Holiday Cup 2020

We also get a Holiday Cup this year from Donna, this time with Elite Custom cars.

You can win:

  • Race #30: 2017 Nissan GT-R (R-35) (Check here)
  • Race #60: Lamborghini LB Silhouette Huracan Coupe (Check here)

In total, there are 3 car lock-in slots and the needed cars aren’t that uncommon so chances are high you already have them:

As with every Holiday Cup, the events aren’t that hard to beat and you can normally beat the races for locked-in car with 2-3 Stage 6 Upgrades. With the rewards on the way this is a great opportunity to get some more parts for one of the cars if you have multiple options.

Elite Tuner – Dress To Impress Event (December 9th, 2020)

The last update introduced the Elite Tuner feature with some new cars that combines the Elite Custom feature with additional customizations like body kits, exhaust color and body wraps.

The first event starts on December 9th with Dress To Impress and the T5 Toyota GR Supra (TNR) and a 35 races event.

By the way, the GR Supra can get below 7 seconds when fully maxed, so it’t also a really fast T5 car that’s worth working on 🙂

The event starts off pretty well with a free Toyota GR Supra and nice rewards but there are some difficulties later:

  • Race 15 requires you to get to Elite Custom Level 15 with the Supra, which is a lot more expenisve in elite token than you will get from the races so far
  • In total you need to get to Elite Level 25 to finish the event
  • Final time is 10.260s which is not that big of a problem

The second part requires you to get to Elite Level 30 to get past race 15 and Elite Level 35 to finish the event. You can find more details about tuning the GR Supra here.

No rushing! The events will remain active until June 9th, 2021 so half a year time 🙂

Fast & Furious Finale Event (November 24th, 2020)

The finale of the re-run of the Fast & Furious Event is on and you have the chance to win the iconic Supra Aerotop, probably the most famous and most wanted car for all CSR2 players. It used to be one of the fastest T5 cars when released initially and is still pretty fast although several new cars that have been released so far are slightly faster.

A cool car still has a price tag and this one will not be cheap. You need to have run the F&F1 and F&F2 events earlier to have gotten the Ice Charger and Flip Car and will need 3 more cars, one that is only available for money to be able to beat this event to get your hands on the Supra Aerotop

Here are the lock-in cars with the recommended tunes, also for Stage 5:

Fast & Furious Event 2 (November 5th, 2020)

Another Fast & Furious Event is just coming up with a total of 80 ladder races and 5 different car loc-ins. For the first car you can use the Lamborghini LB Aventador Coupe which everyone should have as it has been featured in various events as well as a car giveaway a couple months ago.

The other cars are either cars from previous events that you can also get again for money or gold. The new car here is the 2015 Dodge Challenger that you will need to pay real cash for. The final prize car is the Fast & Furious Flip Car.

Here are the lock-in cars with the recommended tunes, also for Stage 5:

Car Lock-In Best Time Tier Tune & Shift (Stage 5 + 6)
Lamborghini LB Aventador Coupe #1 7.683 5 Click here
Lamborghini Murcielago #2 8.522 5 Click here
Subaru Impreza WRX STi #3 7.987 5 Click here
Dodge 2015 Challenger R/T Shaker #4 9.893 4 Nitro: 186/4.2
FD: 3.34
Tires: 0/100
Porsche 911 RWB #5 7.656 5 Click here

You will spend a good amount of money here as well as in-game cash. I’d only recommend to do this if you already have at least 2 of the lock-in cars, otherwise it’s going to be really expensive.

Halloween Event (October 26th, 2020)

This year’s Halloween Event in CSR2 is starting and it’s actually a really nice one, also for F2P players to win the Koenigsegg Regera ‘CSR Edition’ Ghost Package. You need 10,000 Event Tickets, which you will get in the 59th of the 60 ladder races.

You need 4 lock ins and the first 3 of them are basically any T1/T2 (first lock in), T3 (second lock in) and T4 (third lock in). Also the races are not that hard so simply use the one you have the best feeling with and fairly upgraded. Check out my full time & tune list here to get the perfect tuning for your cars.

The last lock in is a little more complicated and you need either the C10 Tiffany from the Halloween Event two years ago (or you pulled it from crates) or the AMG GT R (either the pull version or the prize car from last year’s Halloween Event). Now there it will get more tricky.

You can check out the perfect tuning and shift pattern for them here:

Fast & Furious Event 1 (October 16th, 2020)

Another Fast & Furious Event is just coming up with a total of 80 ladder races and 5 different car loc-ins. For the first car you can use the Maserati LB GrandTurismo which we had as the Prestige Cup car in Season 103, so you very likely have it. The second car will be previous F&F event cars that you either have or need to buy for real money. The last 2 lock-ins will be new paid cars. The final prize car will be the Ice Charger.

Here are the lock-in cars with the recommended tunes, also for Stage 5:

Car Lock-In Best Time Tier Tune & Shift (Stage 5 + 6)
Maserati LB GranTurismo #1 11.746 4 Click here
Chevrolet HS Customs ‘Under Pressure’ #2 7.630 5 Click here
Ford Escort Mk1 RS1600 #3 9.748 4 Click here
Ben Sopra Nissan GT-R #4 7.162 5 Click here
Letty’s Corvette C2 Stingray #5 11.211 4 Click here

You will spend a good amount of money here as well as in-game cash. I’d only recommend to do this if you already have at least 2 of the lock-in cars, otherwise it’s going to be really expensive.

If you don’t mind money, well, then go for it. If you’re a fan and really want the Ice Charger it’s worth it. Although, the Ice Charger is not a new car and has been in the game for about 2 years it “only” runs 7.3xx seconds which makes it scratching Top 50 in the T5 Final Time List.

Lamborghini Sian Roadster Event (October 1st, 2020)

Next up is the Lamborghini Sian Roadster Event, a 65 ladder race event that requires 4 car lock-ins. Beating this will reward you with the new Lamborghini Sian Roadster, a purple 5-Star car that will run 7.00x seconds on the half-mile track.

Here are the lock-in cars with the recommended tunes, also for Stage 5:

Car Lock-In Best Time Tier Tune & Shift (Stage 5 + 6)
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ #1 7.533 5 Click here
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster #1 7.536 5 Nitro: 380/4.0 | FD: 2.19 | Tires: 0/100
Lamborghini SC18 #2 7.444 5 Click here
Lamborghini Centenario #3 7.923 5 Nitro: 467/6.7 | FD: 2.22 | Tires: 0/100
Lamborghini Centenario Roadster Ad Personam #3 8.004 5 Nitro: 347/4.0 | FD: 2.35 | Tires: 0/100
Lamborghini Centenario Roadster #3 7.605 5 Nitro: 169/5.2 | FD: 2.14 | Tires: 0/100
Lamborghini Veneno #4 7.384 5 Click here
Lamborghini Veneno Roadster #4 5

The first lock-in with the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ will very likely be available with crates and was featured initially last year in a Legendary Golden Cup to win the Lamborghini SC18.

The Lamborghini SC18 is the car for the 2nd lock-in in this event, so if you have done that event back in 2019 you will have a nice start in this event, otherwise you can buy the SC18 for real money.

Lock-in #3 is any Lamborghini Centenario that was featured in Flash Events back in 2018 and 2017. You can also use the Roadster that you could get back in February 2020 in the Formula Italia Prologue. Otherwise it will be another paid car for this event.

The final lock in will be the Lamborghini Veneno that was featured last year in a Gold Cup, otherwise another paid car.

Overall this event will be really expensive unless you already have 2-3 cars for the lock-ins. Even if you buy all the cars you will see yourself really short on fusion parts 🙁

Fast & Furious 2 Event (June 11th, 2020)

Another round of the Fast & Furious Event started and it will have 80 ladder races and 5 car lock ins. The prize car will be the APR Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX

But even if you’re not investing money you can get some nice rewards with the first races.

Car Lock In Best Time Tier Tune & Shift
Chevrolet ASC Camaro Z28 #1 11.944 4 Click here
Honda LB NSX #2 10.472 4 Click here
Nissan Silvia Spec S (S15) ‘Mona Lisa’ #3 7.867 5 Click here
Subaru Veilside IMPREZA WRX STi #4 10.056 4 Click here
Mazda Veilseide Fortune RX-7 #5 7.621 5 Click here

The first two cars have been Prestige Cars and chances are high that you actually have them, so you can already so some races here.

Fast & Furious Events are no Free 2 Play events, we know that. You will need to invest money in the #3-#5 slot cars that will cost you around $30 plus 10 million cash to upgrade them. Be aware of that, there’s no use in only getting one of the paid cars here, either go all-in or just let it be.

The paid cars will actually perform quite well, with the Subaru probably getting into Top 5 of the Tier 4 cars and the Silvia and Veilside Fortune not be that good with some Top 50 ranking in Tier 5 (you can compare the times in the full car times table here).

The prize car, the APR Lancer Evolution IX will beat the Subaru by a little with dyno around 10.1xx and also become one of the fastest Tier 4 cars, so when you need some bang in your Tier 4 setup and don’t mind spending money it could be a nice chance for you.

For everyone else I recommend to either use the #1 and #2 locking cars and get some rewards for free or get those cars for Gold, you can also pick up the Stage 6 for these cars and finish their section with only Stage 5 parts, so it’s not that big of a deal.

Hi, I'm Tim and I play CSR2 since the release for every day straight and I absolutely love the fine-tuning aspect of the game and the feeling when hours of trying tunes get a little bit better times. It's all about details in life, right? ????
