More Horsepower and Torque
> To add more horsepower & torque, go to “Customize”, then tune a car up to level 3 parts. Then, go to “Performance Tune/Dyno”. Choose for example, “Drag” then go to “Tune Settings”. Go to ECU and set it so that from 5 rpm to 9 rpm or whatever is the most the maximum amount of torque you can add. Do the same for “Turbo”. Then go to “Nitrous” and set the duration to 4 second. This will add both torque and horsepower to your ride.

Get to Top Speed Faster
> To get to your top speed faster, go into your garage then go to “Tune up/Dyno” after that, go to “Circuit” and select the ECU. Make level 3, 4, 5 as low as possible; with 3 the lowest. Do a dyno run and look at your speed. Compare this to the first time you did it. It should increase a lot, helping in all your races.
Glitch : Turbo
> Have level 3 Turbo and go to dyno. Go to either circuit, drag, etc. Go to “Tune Settings” and go to “Turbo”. Default your turbo. There are many ways to do this. You can set your last three bars all the way up, or the last four bars all the way up, for the ones you did not move, set them down once in order from greatest to least.
For example, if you set the last three bars up, then set bar 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 down once in that order. If you did the four bars all the way up then set bar 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 down once in that order. If you did the four bars all the way up then set bar 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 down once in that order then, dyno run it.
You should see an increase in horsepower and torque, then, go back to “Turbo” and set the bars 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 or 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, down once again in that order. Dyno run it. Keep doing this process until you no longer see an increase in horsepower and torque. If you think the horsepower and torque have stopped going up when you dyno it, continue doing the process four or five more times to make sure you finished the glitch. The may require up to two hours for some cars to finish.

Look At Car In Dyno/Tuning
> When you are tuning your car in the dyno room, start dynoing the vehicle. When your car is reving, use the Right-Analog Stick to look at your car. Press L2 to zoom in and L1 to zoom out.
> When racing for magazine covers, unique performance or visual parts, it helps if you have both NOS bottles filled. This can let you scab that tenth of a second that you have
always missed. It also helps, especially in the more difficult and longer stages, with small time limit, to immediately activate the GPS as soon as you have accepted the challenge.
Easy Drag Race Wins
> Instead of using nitrous by holding it down and wasting it all at once, just keep tapping NOS as fast as you can. You will gain 1 to 3 mph with every tap, which is actually increases your speed faster than if you where to hold it down. Also, you will run out of it about ond third as fast. Try this under the hardest difficulty setting.
Winning an Outrun
> Once you have found an opponent to outrun with, get in front of the opponent and get in the lead.
Get as far as possible until the distance meter has reached it’s limit.
If the distance meter starts to drop, it indicates that the opponent is catching up. When this happens, do a handbrake skid and turn the car around. Go back the way that you came from. The opponent will follow you as you are the one in lead, but he will take time to catch up, giving you an advantage to win the outrun.
If you are in front of an opponent but cannot seem to lose him, head to ward the center of the city (the area that has the five fountains). Once there, we have through the fountains. Your opponent will most likely crash into one of the fountains, giving you an easywin.
Practice going through the fountains 1st before you attempt an outrun so you do not lost your money, it’s easyer to do this in a SUV, because it will not reach a high speed before you reach the fountains.
Find an outrun opponent then get right behind him, draft him, so that you can get a full tank of NOS. If desired. Now, start to spin out your opponent. You can do this by getting directly next to the car and turning into its back corner. While its sideways or back wards, you can hit press Up to start the outrun.
You will have a large head start because your opponent needs to turn around. You can win in under 15 second by doing this.
> Get on a highway of some kind at about 110mph. When traffic is clear, hold R1+Left until your car is spun at a 90 degree angle. Then release the buttons (make sure your car is still spinning) then hold Square. You will be driving in reverse. When you are driving, do a J-Turn (turn back around the front when is reverse). Then, accelerate to finish the move.
> After you buy level 1, 2, or 3 hydraulics, come to a complete stop and hold R1. Use the Left-Analog Stick to move up, down, left, or right. The longer you move back and forth, the move points you will get.
Taking a Nice Photoshoot
> Once you are in the photoshoot area, press Circle, hold your Handbrake (R1), then rev the engine and press either Left or Right. The car should do donuts.
While it is doing this, take the photo. This will give a smoky look on your wheels in the picture.

Easy NOS Recovery
> To get lots of NOS easily, when you are standing still hold
Handbrake (R1). Next, hold the gas then hold Left or Right. You should spin around and create smoke. This should give you 300 points instantly to recover turbo boost.
Get on a road and keep doing 360 degree turns using the handbrake. This will give you 400 points and will add to your NOS. You can repeat this another two timer.
You can recover NOS by doing one of the following things.
Spray Show : Purge your nitrous
Traffic Hit : Penalty from hitting traffic
Lead Lap : Lead a lap in the race
Clean Section : Make it through an entire race without hitting anything
Clean Lap : Make it through an entire lap without hitting anything

360 : perform a 360 or a doughnut while driving
Best Lap : score a best lap during a race
Head Start : get off the starting line the quickest
J-Turn : drive in reverse and swing the car around to drive away forwards
Bournout : spin the tires
Leap Frog : jump your car over a traffic accident
Hydro Bounce : bounce your car using level 3 hydraulics.
Finding More Races
> If you cannot find anymore races on your map, then you need to find all hidden shop in the city. After you find all the shops, you will be asked to be on another DVD cover.
Follow the star to get to the next level. (note: use the shops map featured below).
If you cannot find anymore races on the map, make your visual rating on your car at least six stars or more. After you are done with the rating, Rachel will tell you about a photograph to take. Then after the picture you must do the URL. More races will appear. You will also unlock level 3 parts if you find the shops.
Finding Hidden Shops
> Look at the road signs around the city. They often have colored shapes (yellow triangles.etc) to guide the way to the shops. Also, look for street-lights casting a colored glow. This indicates that there is a shop very close.
Finding Hidden Races
> Enter career mode and go down to the Burger King and Best Buy area. Drive around and look for a stone wall and alley by the town shops. Go into the alley and turn sharply to the right. There will be a parking lot where an opponent will be sitting.
He will not be appear on your navigation map, nor will you. You can challenge this opponet to an easy outrun. He will always drive to wards the stadium. After you beat him, return to the parking lot where two red info messages will appear. Get them for $25 each.
After you collect them, go into a garage, shop, etc, and save the game. Then go back to the parking lot. Five green money bags will be there. Collect them, jump to the garage (on the main menu screen) and return for five more. This will get you money much easier than racing.
> In drift mode, set your car up using the following this basic structure. Tune the ECU to have as much Torque as you can get in the early gears. Make all of the Suspension settings as hard as possible to eliminate shock travel. This will help get the back end out. Turn the Tire grip to weak. Also, make the cars Acceleration as quick as possible.
For the Toe settings, lower it all the way. Make the Aero settings as weak as possible. Set the Brake Bias towards rear. By doing this, you will greatly increase your score, especially on the downhill. On the straight-aways you can do Choku-Doris (go from side to side) to rack up big points.
You can then link them to powerover-street drifts, which is when you will use the Torque & Acceleration to lose fraction in the back tires, then use carefully time throttle control to get around the corner as sideways as possible.
This will help your drifts scores get as high as possible. Throttle control is very important.
** do not get discouraged if you spin out a lot.
Note: This has not been attemped on FF or AWD cars. FF and AWD cars will most likely have a softer Suspension setting but everything else would probably remain the same. FF and AWD cars also need the Handbrake to initiate drifts more than a FR car would.
