The Stress Test Beta was announced after the Open Beta was finished. The purpose of this beta was to see if the server could handle stress. It went only for 2 days, started on July 13th 2010 and ended on July 14th 2010.
A community event was also running during this test. The objective was to make fastest time on mentioned events & be on Top 5.
- TIER 1: Spade Street
- TIER 2: Lincoln Boulevard
- TIER 3: Hwy 99 & State
The prize for this event was the Starter Pack from EA, which included
- 8000 Speedboost,
- Joining Headstart
- VIP Status
- Bundle of Power-Ups
- Exclusive Speedhunters Toyota Corolla AE86.
A confusion occurred when the winners were announced. The winners provided in the first announcement were not the ones that were the real winners. They were still given starter pack prize & an apology came from EA regarding this matter. Later on the Headstart on July 20th, 2010, the prizes were given to the real winners.
