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.

Easy wins

Enable the "Infinite nitrous" and "Infinite SpeedBreaker" codes. Keep using SpeedBreaker and nitrous through the entire race. This will make it an unfair slow motion race, which is very long but a sure win. To boost the effects, enable the "Infinite 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.

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

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

Easier Speedtrap races

Activate your Blocker/Brawler before the race. While racing and coming up towards a speed trap, stop your Blocker/Brawler. Your Blocker/Brawler will stop, crash the other car(s), and drastically slow down their time. Remember that the peak Blocker/Brawler moment is just before the speed trap.

Avoid flipping

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

Avoiding police

When the police are looking for you but have not yet found you (when the map blinks red), back up against a wall. The cops will go past, but will not catch or see you. They will then drive away.

Getting away from police

Activate Speed Breaker. While in Speed Breaker, press 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.

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.

Eleanor (Gone In 60 Seconds) custom car

To create the car from Gone In 60 Seconds, Eleanor, start a Muscle Car Career mode. After you complete the first three territories (Kempton, Downtown, and Fortuna), a new territory will be unlocked. In this territory, win two races in the area to the far left (Silverton) to unlock the "67' Shelby GT 500". After you get the car for $108,000, return to your safe house and select "Customization". Then, choose "Aftermarket" and use the following customizations:


    Body Kits: Body Kit # 2
    Wheels: American Racing Shelby Razor


    Paint: Candy Red section top row, last box to the right (silver)
    Vinyls: Stock; edit color to black
    Wheel Paint: Chrome, in the red section, seventh row down last color to the right
    Window tint: Light black
