Fast & Flurrious Race Tips

Updated 12/7/2021. Information on how to achieve the best ground speed for the Winter Wonderland event race.

Traits

Personal Ground Trait: Maquis Guile (10%)
Personal Ground Trait: Coalition Squad Tactics (3% per Tac on team)
Ground Rep Trait: Physical Conditioning (6.3%)
Ground Rep Trait: Close Quarters Combatant (3.8%)

Equipment

Pet Terran Fortune Tribble (5%)

Burnham’s CQC Armor (10%)

Hostile Environment Shield (20% when shields are full)

Any weapon with [Run] modifier (I’m using a mk12 green)

Frosted Boots

Alternatives:
Counter-Command Exo-Armor (25% for 3 seconds after rolling).
Delta 2-piece (gun + shield or armor) gives a 5% boost, but you have to give up Burnham armor or shield.

Buffs:

Fleet Research Lab: Combat Performance Boost buff

Specialization:

Primary Specialization: Command (for the tier 1 run speed bonus). Literally the only time I recommend the Command spec. Ever.

Endeavor Perks:

Endeavor Perks can grant an additional 20% Sprint Speed.

Conclusions & Other Tips:

When you are sliding around on the ice, you can jump or roll to stop your momentum – this makes sharp corners and staying on the track a lot easier!

You can have a team mate hit you with the Winter Tribble first and then use your Terran Tribble, and they will stack.

34.04 appears to be my top sustained speed solo (Alien Tac toon with Burnham’s and without anybody else on team).
35.99 is the top burst speed I achieved using Counter-Command, but don’t think this is the best way to run the race.

A Jem’Hadar toon should be able to top both of those, using Ketracel.

Here is an example run:
