Hint: Easier Speedtrap races:
Activate your Blocker/Brawler before the race. While racing and you are coming up to a speed trap, stop your Blocker/Brawler. This will crash the other car(s), and drastically slow down their time. Remember that the peak Blocker/Brawler moment is just before the speed trap.

Hint: Easy wins:
In races where crew members are used, used a scout (Yumi if possible). If you do not win the race, your scout will.

When in Career mode, choose the Exotic class. When you get to the Stacked Deck level, get a Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Once this happens, Neville, Colin, and Nikki will still have exotic cars. Choose one of them and do any race where you can use your wingman. You should have easy win.

Enable the "Unlimited nitrous" and "Unlimited SpeedBreaker" codes. During the race, keep using SpeedBreaker until the end. Also use nitrous through the entire race. This will make it an unfair slow motion race, that is painfully long but a sure win. To boost the effects, enable the "Unlimited crew charge" code as well and have a drafter as active. Then use your drafter during the entire race. It is faster, but still painfully long. Note: This cannot be used in Quick Race, Challenge Series or Canyon Duels.

When you get to the Stacked Deck level and go to do the canyon race for a Lamborghini Murcielago, use a Corvette Z06 stock/custom to overtake him.

Hint: Defeating Darius:
Before you get to challenge Darius, you must race Wolf, Kenji, and Angie in their new rides: Wolf: Lamborghini Gallardo; Kenji: Mitsubishi Evolution; and Angie: Plymouth Hemi Cuda. You will have to defeat them in the canyon, then the city. Both races are sprints. After you defeat them, you will be able to challenge Darius in his Audi Le Mons Quattro. You will not be able to switch cars before each race. Start with the car that you want to use for all four races. The car needed to beat Darius is a Tier 2 Tuner, because they are the best at turns (Canyon Duel). Kenji's Mazda RX-7 is the best car if it is tuned out to the maximum. However, if you did not obtain the pink slip from Kenji, then your best Tier 2 Tuner should be fine, as long as its tuned fully. Defeating Darius will take many attempts, but eventually you will get used to the roads and will be one step ahead of him, making your chances of winning larger every time you race him. Also, if you cannot make it past the first, second, or third race, try enabling the "Unlimited nitrous" code then hold down the nitrous for the entire race, except for sharp turns. You should have a fairly easy win as long as you take all of the shortcuts. If you miss one shortcut, Darius will take it and you will be in last place.

To defeat Darius you must beat Kenji, Wolf, and Angie. To do this easily enable the "Unlimited SpeedBreaker" and "Unlimited nitrous" codes. The best car to use is a fully upgraded Chevrolet Corvette Z06. When you go to race them, hold [Nitrous] then press [SpeedBreaker] and use it the entire time. Although it takes a long time it is worth it. When face Darius in the canyon, accelerate as fast as possible and get him to cushion you. When you go to the inside of him, then just try to stay in front and you should win.

Hint: Easy money:
Once you have completed career mode, set Samson as your wingman with Neville also in your crew. You can repeat any races you have already completed in which a wingman is used and recieve $750 for each race completed instead of the $500 without. This can also be used on first time races for maximum cash output.

The easiest way to break 1 million in Career mode is to start a Muscle career. Race two races in order to unlock the car lot. Then, go to your challenge series and unlock the Nissan 240 (last set of checkpoint challenges). Buy the car in your career. It is possible to complete the entire game with this car. It is important to start as a muscle career so that you unlock Sampson first. Race the entire game with Sampson set as active and Neville in your crew. You can break 1 million with about ten races left over.

Go to the Billings District, Downtown (tuner area). Go to the Mason Fountain race (speed trap race). Do not join it. Drive south of the race. While driving south, there will be a entrance to your right. Take it and you will go off a ramp. Once you go thought the entire shortcut, turn around. Look at your map and there should be a orange arrow. Race the car to any location. When you win, you'll get $1,000. Drive back to the jump and do the same thing again. The orange arrow should appear again. Race the car again for another $1,000. Repeat this as many times as desired. Note: This may take some time.

Hint: Avoiding police:
When being chased by the police, open the GPS map. Locate the nearest orange triangle with the pointer and activate the GPS. It will then show a blue arrow and lead you to the Pursuit Breaker. If the cops are directly behind you, they will stop because they "died". However if you are at heat level 4 or higher, the cops (Corvettes) will just dodge the debris. Once the cops have "died" it will then go into Cooldown mode. Then, just wait until you lose them. There is a faster way to do this. If you go into GPS mode (after you have gone into Cooldown mode), there will be a blue-white dotted circle. Activate the GPS for the circle. Drive toward it and make sure that you are exactly in the middle of the circle. Your Cooldown meter should be drop down faster. After the little screen appears, you should be back to normal.
The Drunken Monkey.

This technique will work very well if you have a muscle car or something just as good. Use it when the cops are really pestering you (especially the blue cars or Corvettes) and start to corner you against the wall. Enter slow time then crank it to the middle of the road to get free. This technique also is very helpful if you have a flat tire. It might be not as good, but it still may work.
The Drunken Monkey.

Use the following trick to evade a pursuit with no tires. If you hit a spike strip during a pursuit but near a Pursuit Breaker, hit that Pursuit Breaker as soon as possible. It should take out all the cars in the pursuit because they will be very close or all bunched together. Then, hide somewhere nearby if possible.

Note: This was done in a Mazda RX-7 at Heat level 4. When in pursuit and a spike strip is deployed, you can hit it and still carry on. Your top speed is only about 100 mph and your brakes will fail but you can still keep going. Hit as many Pursuit Breakers as possible and you should lose them.

During the Challenge Series races, you cannot use your [Speedbreaker] to flip police. When doing these types of races, wait until a roadblock has been set up, then try to hit the extreme back corner of the police car. If done correctly, you should slide under their car, flip them, and still be on the road to continue driving.

Hint: Get away from police:
Press Square to activate Speed Breaker. While in Speed Breaker, press X for the hand brake to do a wicked turn-around. Use NOS while accelerating out of the turn-around to gain quick distance between you and the cops.

Hint: Easy drift combo multiplier:
Start a drift race in the city. Make sure it is not a canyon drift. You will see a red bar across the road that stops your drift points around corners, then there will be a green bar. As soon as your front tires hit the green bar start to drift. You will get an automatic x2 combo multiplier. On some races if the bonus zone (yellow lines on sides on road) is too far away, it will give you no multiplier.

Hint: Avoid flipping:
When you are about to flip, hit the nitrous. It will stabilize your car and you will not flip.

Hint: Using SpeedBreakers effectively:
When you reach a sharp turn that requires you to use a SpeedBreaker, make sure that before you use it that you have already started a slight turn. When you get into SpeedBreaker status, turn hard, but not so hard that you start to fishtail. It should be more like a half push on the Analog-stick. Leave it there for a split second. Once you have started to turn sharply, do not do anything else except keep pressure on the throttle. If you start to fishtail, turn until your wheels are going the direction you want to travel to come out of the SpeedBreaker with good speed. Make sure the camera is behind the car instead of looking at its side. Then, release the SpeedBreaker and use the nitrous (if available).

Hint: Free performance parts:
Go into "My Crew" then choose a crew member. Select the "View Car" option. Then, customize it. You can paint it whatever color desired, and because your crew members cars are not tuned you can buy them performance parts for free.

Hint: Unlocking the Lamborghini Murcielago:
Defeat Wolf in his Lamborghini Murcielago on the canyon duel race event on Darius's turf. The recommended car for is an Exotic (for example, a maxed out Lamborghini Gallardo) or a maxed out exotic of your own choice. This may require a few attempts, but once you keep doing it, your chances of winning will increase.
Wolf Colin.

Hint: Vauxhall Monaro VXR handling:
When the Vauxhall Monaro VXR's handling is maxed out, the game states that the handling stat is as high as possible. However, it still slides when it turns but it is more controllable than, for example a Dodge Charger RT. The turning radius is a bit wide. It will hit the walls quite a bit unless you find a way to narrow the radius.

Hint: Police codes:
During police chases, cops will use such term like "10-79" or "Code 6 Driver". Here are the meanings of these terms.

Code 3: In pursuit of high speed driver.
Code 6: High speed driver who refuses to pull over for police.
10-33: Is in a need for more backup units.
10-39: Police will attempt to spin your car.
10-59: Police are going to attempt to pin you against a wall.
10-73: This is a roadblock.
10-75: Police are going to pull in front of your car and slam on the breaks (very affective with Corvettes).
Setting up a quadrant: Police are going to set up in a certain direction to find you.
Taking out a P.C.: When you have "killed" a patrol car.

Glitch: Cannot pick marker from Darius:
After you defeat Darius, the game just goes to an intermission sequence then a message appears stating that you have won the game. You do not get to pick a marker from him.
