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
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
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
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.
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.
