Zero to Hero is PISSING ME OFF!!!!

I don't understand. I've followed a couple youtube videos, but either something seems to happen on the last lap, or the AI posts ridiculously fast target times... WTF!!

Make sure you're playing on the easiest don't even need to win the race so just drive slowly for the first couple of laps (make sure that you don't dominate any sectors yet) and on the last one go as fast as you can, use your boost and it shouldn't be that hard to dominate on all sectors.

If you still can't do it, you can do it in a split screen game

Just did this last night on my second try. I stayed in second the whole race until the last lap and just gunned it the rest of the way using boost on the straights. Wasn't to hard, just keep trying!

I found it easiest to do on the first domination event you come across. Drop the difficulty to casual, use a fully upgraded car(I used the Zenden Cup), time your run so you don't encounter the other cars(that way you don't bump into them or them into you, slowing you down), and use boost whenever possible.

I got this one pretty easily on casual difficulty. If you set your game to a higher difficulty level, you may have a hard time dominating every sector as they tend to post some nice times during the last lap.

What will be difficult though is to not dominate the sectors right away. It may sound ridiculous, but on casual, they are really bad and a terrible run in your head may be enough to dominate. Be really slow! On the last lap, floor it, and you should be ok.

I did this one on the first Dominating event you encounter in the Showdown Tour.

You can boost this on multiplayer private match, get a friend to drive round slowly you follow behind keeping an eye on the time you have to beat and be sure you don't beat it then on the last lap just drive normally and if your friend went slow all the way it will be easy to dominate the whole track just make sure you friend doesn't re-take them.

This can also be easily done on split screen using two controllers:

- Set up a split screen Domination match with 2 laps.
- Have your second player to two laps at a medium speed.
- Then with your main player do one slow lap and then one fast.

Not sure if you need to do two laps but this is how i did it. Hope this helps.
