This same type of thing happened before, then it changed, now its back. Now even the way it is i can still grind Trash Talk and generate more cash and RP than i could solo racing. Now the idea of a race is an amount of distance taken by a person, plane, etc. in the shortest amount of time, one would also conclude that the person who had a short time would b rewarded more than a person who finished the same race in twice the time. Not so in my very recent experiment racing solo. i raced 2 races i created and 1 R* created race, just 2 b sure. R* race Learning Curve, aced it in 1:53:43 $1250 + 860 rp, same race in over 3minutes, $2940 + 2250 rp, same race over 5minutes, $5048 + 3000 rp. Length of race may matter, my 12 mile race Captain's Revenge results 6:40 time $6268 + 3000 rp, same race in over 8mins and 10mins $8408 + 3000 rp. 3000 appears to b the maximum rp amount given. Results with more racers may vary.

hi, just got a small question(I'm new as may be obvious)...

 

Is the amount of rp you receive based on your level? Because I'm roughly at about lvl 19 and I don't receive anywhere near the amount of rp you guys mention for solo races. The most I've ever received for a solo race was 1010RP and that was after letting the timer get to 10mins before I finished it.

 

The most cash I ever get is $7523 or something also

 

Cheers,

Baron

Maybe cause im rank 322 might b a factor. Do you know how to play golf in the game? Way back when i was rank 19 i was getting 2500 rp for a 7 under par game played solo, no cash and the game is 20 minutes long solo, mite b worth a shot.

Ok, so the new wrench in the engine is no mission grinding from the START menu / ONLINE menu. However Races are still active. Just remember what we learned from the racing research I did. The longer your race time, the more RP and cash u get.

 

 

The Amazing Race is approx 4 minutes long

You're bang on...I do race playlists a lot and the RP and payout go down the quicker I am. I think they changed it when people were somehow able to use the content creator to make incredibly quick races with huge RP & $$$'s...now it seems the longer it takes you to complete a race - the bigger the reward. It's odd, but it is what it is.
