Boosting Affinity Levels

Money in the game is no longer a problem. Think im on c. 24m credits or something daft like that.

I want to try and max out the affinity for a few cars that I dont use too much. Rather than the short preset races Im thinking just do longer races in free play.

Is there a way of calculating how much XP I get from each track or is it a case of doing one lap races and noting down the XP then doing 10, 20, 30 lap races on the tracks that give better rewards.

AFAIK its XP per lap rather than class or distance etc

If you play free play you can add %xp mods while in the pre race menu. If you add it it tells you the xp payout for that mod. So if you have a +60% xp mod and it says = 60.000 xp, the normal payout without mods is 100.000 xp. Only thing is you cant adjust the amount of laps in this menu, you have to quit and select it again in the previous menu.

I measured the XP per lap of each layout of each track, based on a ten lap race. The amount of XP does seem to scale, but not perfectly - I’m not sure why. It’s still a good rough guide, though. I’m going to try to paste my numbers on this post, but I don’t know how well it will come out…

Wow ! Looks like someone did their homework for sure !!!

I will maths it up and get the tracks that’s worth getting xp/affinity from

Rio Mountain-R 22.3032279726

I dont think theres a cap this time. On F4 I sure it was 100,000cr and 50,000XP so I just did 30 laps of Indy or 5 laps on the Nordschleife every now and then

I did Prague Short and I got only 1340xp per lap so I think it might be based on Class or lap time or total time?

Based on the data of 1340xp (my S class Formular E) I need to do 98.1 laps with 3* +60% Affinity boosts to go from L0 to L25.

Something definitely causes minor variations - as I said, my figures are based on 10-lap races, and I’ve been keeping an eye on the numbers while I’m working through buying all the cars & maxing the affinities. The XP/lap numbers above are definitely largely accurate, but sometimes the numbers do vary slightly, and I can’t work out why. Sometime, the amount of XP is not evenly divisible by the number of laps, so there’s some other weighting in there.

I did 22 (?) laps at brands hatch in my a class brz, got a decent figure from memory.

that was in rivals, could be more if it was free play/custom online? something else to test as a variable, the game mode?

It’s worth mentioning that there is a cap on both base Credits and base XP in place.
You will not get more than 300k Cr in “Earnings” and not more than 300k XP (these are the base values before any mods are applied).
So if you’re going for very long races, make sure you’re not overshooting these figures as every lap afterwards will be a waste of time.

Nurburgring (NoS only) 32 laps max out this 300.000 XP/race

Ignore any brand that has a car in any of the endurance races IMO as it it far too easy to cap it at 25 via endurance.

mannnnn do i wish i payed attention to this. 3 endurance left and 2 of them are maxed Affinity… the last one i did too lol Just figures

I’m looking to boost Ram’s affinity. I normally do the Daytona oval, but the truck seems to be too tippy there. Any good tracks and lap amount for Ram?

It is annoyingly tippy. I maxed out mine on Silverstone, and made use of 3 100% XP boost cards to make the race as short as possible!

I’m not sure if anyone has noticed this but if you race in rivals mode you get bonus xp for good/perfect turns and drifts. I tested this out extensively and I calculated you get 100xp for each good and 500 for each perfect. if you do it right you can level up quite easily. (works for both driver level and affinity)

Off Endurance races I maxed out affinity for Peugeot, Audi, Lamborghini, Holden, Honda, Chevrolet and Dodge. I also may have forgotten one there. If you have max affinity already use 100% driver level cards for the Endurance races. You can gain 20+ driver levels and at this point you wind up with 10 million+ off the spins after an endurance race doing that. A lot of credits to blow on mod packs that will get you mod cards for affinity to use in other races :slight_smile:

I have noticed that there may be some variation to the max xp cap. Running Nurburgring full circuit you cannot get 300,000 max base xp, you can only get 240,000 which is 20 laps. Add a 60% affinity card and you get 384,000 xp which gives you 12,000 more than needed to make level 25. The other 2 slots can be used to generate cash or driver level. It takes around 3 hours to complete the race for me, which is not too bad to max a manufacturer.
