Finish line

There’s a new Race at the track, The Race To The Finish Race  and it works pretty much the same as last weeks only you need different drivers and a bit more Turbo. Basically to start a race tap on the Finish Line in the event area and you will see the Race Screen, now you’ll see you can choose between last week’s Redline Race and this week’s Race To The Finish Race.

Tap on the Race To The Finish Race and you will then see  who can compete in Races. But again before you can Race you’ll need to start collecting Nitro, here’s a reminder of how you can get them.

 Nitro (Common) –  Get from Nitro Pump, Premium Nitro Pump (Always)

Once you have Nitro, you’ll need 6 for each Race, you can choose which characters to send on your Race team. You need at least 1 from Jean Girard, Flag Girl Lois and Street Racer Bonnie. But be aware sending more than one will increase your odds of successful drops. Once you’ve selected your Racers just hit Let’s Go, and the Race will run like a task for 3 hours.

I’m going be honest the UI for racing is poor and doesn’t make clear what you can win, but I’ve simplified it below. Also remember you don’t claim your prize until you click Vroom, so if you win your race click this as soon as you can as if you’re game crashes and needs reload you could end up losing the race instead.

Cost to Race: 6 Nitro
Characters you can send Racing: Jean Girard, Flag Girl Lois and/or Street Racer Bonnie
How many Characters do I send: 1 is enough but 2 is better and 3 is even better. The combination you send increases the chance of winning although the results can be random.
Race Time: 3 hours

At the end of the 3 hour race you’ll see your rewards and these will be from the following.

If you win the race: 5 Prize Money & 3  Bank of Quahog Sponsorship & 3 Gloves

If you lose the race: 5 Prize Money

SPORTS CARS

These are the little baddies from last week and are still used this week. Just like last week before  you can clear them you’ll need to get some Road Spikes, you’ll get them here:

 Nails (Common) – Get from Dr Hartman Pop His Tyre, Jerome Repair A Door Mort Sell Some Hardware, Buy from Store

Once you have a Nail you will find Sport Cars driving on your sidewalks. Simply tap one of them to bring up the targeting screen. Then move the Nail until the green target circle is on a Sport Car, you’ll know it’s in target as it will turn purple, then simply hit the check mark to clear the Sport Car..

The event rewards for clearing Sports Cars this week are as follows:

Per Sport Car Cleared
3 Nitro Kit (Chance)
1 Steering Wheel (Chance)

  1. Game is still locked out for the 3rd week plus….
    Completing side quests the game boosts….
    This time its Stewie King Tut deal with the plutonium…
    He and Vinnie quest complete sign pops up and then game shuts down….

    Not my 1st rodeo with this issue in the last couple of months…

    Sadly I have to wait for the next update after the challenge 8s over….

    So I’m not going to be able to earn or use the clams I purchased to accomplish the bonuses…. Outfits, characters….

    Hopefully knowbody else is facing these problems…

    Taylor whom Inthink is a automated name generated for the email system says I just have to wait it out again like I did last month….

    I’ve spent ALOT of $$$ on this game, but thinking about dropping it all together because of the constant issues and little to no response from the technical teams….

  2. I thought we’re gonna do some tap-racing, like we had fights in Summer Camp event, but all those race track seems useless(

  3. i’ve already posted about this on another comment section but, as a freemium player, there is literally no incentive to complete or even play this week.

    theres only a single new costume to collect and appears to be quite hard to achieve given the limited time-frame.
    why waste the effort and get annoyed with the gameplay over it.

  4. Quagmire is gonna be very, very hard to get. Have not had one drop in a 2 hr period. It’s also almost impossible to win a race without Girardz & we need those gloves and signs. Oh well…. better luck on the next event…maybe?

  5. We’re on week 4? After the timer ran out for the bonus clams on pit crew Chris I stopped caring. I’m trying to get Lois now but honestly this event was boring from the get go. I’m just logging in getting nails and tacks to pop cars and losing races. *sigh* This whole dependence on winning races has really made me lose interest.

  6. I see there are some wise players who beat me to the punch about just one freemium character (timed!) in this event. I don’t play TSTO so I don’t know exactly how that gameplay is structured but I do play another similarly structured game that came out after FGTQFS because of how much I enjoyed playing FGTQFS (think ear hats!). Because I have played FGTQFS since the first week, the game has become all about new characters for me (not costumes) just to be challenged. There is not one decoration in my town and long ago I stopped trying to display every building (lack of land and trying to speed up the load times). I don’t want to be one of those people but i am wondering why I am continuing to play if my overall take for a four-week event is one character. That’s a lot of investment with very limited return.

  7. Those gloves are gonna be tough if they only drop 3 per and I have to rely only on lois racing, especially when i can only race once every 8 hours. Have to win 10 and have lost 2 already!

      • Yeah, these drops combined with holiday weekend means I likely won’t be getting the costume. Which is fine, because you know, costume! Also on my 4th try I finally won a race!

  8. *Another* week with the only freemium content being a single costume, and *another* Talladega Nights character stuck in a mystery box. This event has been colossally lame.

  9. I was hoping Jean Girard was going to be craftable but alas no such luck. So one craftable character (albeit a timed one) and four costumes for the event for the freemium players. A tad disappointing.

  10. I am not a big complainer, but I gotta say that in years of playing, this is the worst full size event I have seen. Only one freemium full character in 4 weeks! Although the race track building is kinda nice, the gameplay changed every little (if at all) from week to week. Also wonder what is the use of building the track without a car to run on it. One costume in a week?? No bosses to attack? Every time I wait 4.5 minutes for the game to load I wonder why am I bothering to just collect the same nails and run the same race – 4 times a day for 7 days for another darn costume. Really? Really? Seems they never finished designing this event before rolling it out. I gotta start complaining more, that felt good.

    • Yes it’s felt a little like I’ve been playing The Simpsons Tapped Out – log in ever 4hrs and reset a task and you’re done. It’s amazing how many wanted this game to be like Tapped Out but not me. I prefer but more of a challenge or variety, tapping in and tapping out a few times a day quickly becomes boring.

    • I play both TSTO and FG, and can appreciate the difference in game play. One is a grind every 4 hours, the latter is a challenge, and requires strategy to plan what you want to get. I agree that loading time of 4 min for FG just to grind has been too excessive. Believe they can’t offer new characters for free in this event because of rights issue and they need to recoup money paid to have these characters in the game.
