CSR2 Event Guides – Pagani Supercar Science 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.

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:

Pagani Huayra BC #2 7.582 5 Click here

Pagani Huayra Roadster BC ‘Drago Red’ #3-5 7.465 5 Nitro: 395/5.6
FD: 2.00
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:

Car Lock-In Best Time Tier Tune & Shift (Stage 5 + 6)

McLaren 765LT *NEW* #2-5 7.287 5 Click here

McLaren Senna Carbon Theme by MSO #2-5 7.198 5 Nitro: 278/5.0
FD: 2.31
Tires: 0/100

*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:

Cars Lock-In Tier Tune & Shift (Stage 5 + 6)
Nissan Silvia (S15) Rocket Bunny #1 4 Click here
Mercedes C 63 AMG Coupe Edition 507 #1 3 Click here
Honda VARIS Civic Type R #1 3 Click here

Porsche 911 R #3 5 Click here
Toyota GR Supra (Elite Tuner) #3 5 Click here
Ferrari 488 Pista Spider #3 5 Click here
Chevrolet 2020 Corvette Stingray #3 4 Click here

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:

Car Lock-In Best Time Tier Tune & Shift (Stage 5 + 6)
DAMD ver. Lancer Evolution VII #1 9.990 4 Click here
Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34 NISMO S-tune) #2 7.804 5 Click here
Mustang Fastback *NEW* #3 7.603 5 Click here
Dodge Ice Charger #4 7.370 5 Click here
Fast & Furious Flip Car #5 7.084 5 Click here

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? ????
