Introduction:

Welcome to the Absolute Drift: Zen Edition Trophy Guide! Become a drift king with this amazing game! Do drifts, donuts, spins and stunts and reach the top of the world to become the real drift master.
This game is developed by Funselektor Labs Inc., and FlippFly.

Roadmap:

Step 1: Free-Roam missions

During this step, your main focus will be to complete all the missions in each world of the Free-Roam Mode. Skip all the events and focus on completing the world missions which can be found all over the map. They are easy and this mode gives you the chance to practice for your next step. Furthermore, by completing all the 5 worlds of the game, you will unlock all the cars so you can try them all and find which one suits you the best.
If you want a visual explaination of what you need to do, check the video put in the Gold Master Drifter trophy description.
Also remember to go for miscellaneous trophies in order to avoid a later clean-up. These trophies are:

Bronze Maverick – buzz the control tower in world 1;
Bronze Double Rainbow – paint your car 20 times;
Bronze Sake Bombs
– fall into the water 5 times;
Silver Hoon Airlines 
– spemd 2 minutes airborne.

At the end of this step you should have earned these trophies:

Bronze Maverick
Bronze Double Rainbow
Bronze Sake Bombs
Silver Hoon Airlines
Gold Master Drifter

Step 2: Events and event challenges 

Now things are getting serious: exit Free-roam mode and begin with the event challenges. Remember that each challenge can be completed SEPARATELY: that means you can focus on a single challenge then finish the level and do another one without having the trouble to complete all 5 in a single run. Furthermore, if you are struggling with some challenges, set the game on hard and put manual gearing. This way you will drift easier and you can use the manual gearing like a speed limiter (you will need it at the most for midnight event challenges). 

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:

Bronze Bring the Cubic Ruckus
Bronze Spin Doctor
Bronze Jelly Donuts
Silver Drift Line Apprentice
Silver Multiplier Master
Silver Bacon Donuts
Silver Washing Machine
Gold Drift Line Master
Gold Midnight Drifter
Gold Midnight Master

Sake Bombs
Fall into the water 5 times.

You can attempt this trophy from “World 2”. Take a ramp to jump over the water without enpugh speed to fail the jump and fall into the water. Repeat this method 5 times and you will unlock this trophy. Later worlds too have no barriers so it’s easier to do it.
Here a video which explains the method overmentioned (Credits to LouD for the video):

Double Rainbow
Paint your car 20 times in Free-Roam.

In Free-Roam, each world has a Paint Shop where you can change the color of your car. To do it, drive through it and it will paint your car. Repeat that method for 20 times and the trophy will unlock.
The first one is located in “World 1” to the far right of the map.

Bring the Cubic Ruckus

Execute a perfect drift line.

Check the Gold Drift Line Master trophy description for further details on how to unlock this trophy.

Multiplier Masterupscale-245262160018212
Reach a 15x multiplier.

To increase the multiplier, you just need do drift and do every stunt during an event. The best way to achieve it is to chain your drifts and use clipping points, donuts or anything else to keep your multiplier. If you don’t keep drifting, the multiplier will reset after few seconds. You need to practice a bit, but you are forced to unlock this trophy while going for every challenge of every event. 
This video shows a good way to easily achieve it in Driftkhana Sendai event (Credits: Human Error 101):

Hoon Airlines upscale-245262160018212
Spend 2 minutes airborne in Free-Roam.

This trophy should come naturally while doind all the Free-Roam missions. However, if you haven’t got this by the time you have completed the game, keep on taking ramps and jump until the trophy pop. The fastest way to accumulate airborne time is to keep doing the “world 1” ramp which flies you over the aeroplane as it’s one of the biggest jumps.

Bacon Donutsupscale-245262160018212
Complete 25 donuts in Driftkhana.

Driftkhana is a track type where you have to do stunts and drifts to complete it. During these type of events, complete 25 donuts to achieve this trophy.
To do a donut, you have to find a red circular structure and start drifting around it. You will see that while you drift, it gradually fills up of red. When it’s full you have completed a donut. Pay attention that if you bump against the structure, it will reset and you will need to restart. However, to complete a donut, you don’t have to do it in one go.

Here an image that shows how a donut looks like:

Complete 25 spin-zones in Driftkhana.

Driftkhana is a track type where you have to do stunts and drifts to complete it. During these type of events, complete 25 spin-zones to achieve this trophy.
To do a spin-zone you have to find a red square on the floor and start spinning around it. You will see that while you spin, it gradually fills up of red. When it’s full you have completed a spin-zone. As for donuts, you don’t need to complete it in one go so take your time.
The best way to easily complete a spin-zone is to stop in the middle of the red square and go reverse gear while you spin the wheel.

Here an image which show how a spin-zone looks like:

Drift Line MasterGold
Execute 10 perfect drift lines.

Perfect drift lines are the trickiest stunts to perform as you need to follow an exact trajectory while drifting so you will need a lot of patience and practice to master them. It’s adviced to use manual gear and set the game on hard to ease a little this trophy. 
When you can do a perfect drift line, you will see red dots on the floor, so stick the second gear to limit your speed and try to drift while following the line. Complete 10 of them to unlock the trophy. 
NOTE: you can also repeat the drift line that suits you the most 10 times and the trophy will pop.

Midnight DrifterGold
Unlock a Midnight Event.

Check the Gold Midnight Master trophy description for further details.

Midnight Master Gold
Complete all 5 event challenges on any midnight event.

Midnight Events are the hardest ones to complete and their challenges can be a pain to accomplish because they are set by night and the challenges requirements are higher than the normal ones. Furthermore, latest Midnight Events don’t have barriers so you you fall down from the track, the event will end. To unlock a Midnight Event, simply complete all the challenges of the other normal events.
Each Midnight event has 5 challenges. Remeber that each challenge can be completed SEPARATELY: that means you can focus on a single challenge then finish the level and do another one without having the trouble to complete all 5 in a single run. 

When you have accomplished all 5 challenges on a Midnight Event, the trophy will pop.

The CompletionistGold
Complete all event challenges (including tutorial events).

This is the hardest trophy of the game: to unlock it, you will need to do all the challenges in every single event in the game including the tutorial ones and the midnight events ones (which are the hardest ones too). Each event has 5 challenges which can consist in do a certain number of stunts (drifts clipping points etc), a certain score or increase your multiplier.
Here some tips and strategies to ease this trophy:

  • Each challenge can be completed SEPARATELY: that means you can focus on a single challenge then finish the level and do another one without having the trouble to complete all 5 in a single run.
  • It seems a nonsense but set the game to Hard and put the manual gearing as these two settings ease the game a lot, especially for the hardest challenges; 
  • You can also try messing with the “Steering Sensitivity” and “Steer Assist” to see if that makes it easier for you;
  • Use the car that suits you the most; 
  • If you are using the manual gearing (as you should do), don’t worry a lot about shifting up and down. Remember to stick the second gear in order to have like a speed limiter and drift without issues;
  • Learn to chain your drifts in order to not lose your multiplier and do a tons of points for the xN° multiplier and score challenges;
  • Keep practicing and keep calm as some challenges can be really frustrating. 
Insane SkillsGold
Score over 2,000,000 points in any event.

This score can be easily obtained by raising your multiplier over and over while doing drifts etc. Remember to set the game on hard put manual gearing to ease the drifting and choose the Driftkhana Sendai event. 
Now it’s time to keep drifting around the helicopter without hitting the walls or the helicopter and rise your multiplier.
