It's not your normal linear racing game that features a series of races and also has the occasional drag race thrown in. Each race type will be listed in this section with a brief description describing what you will find in each type of race. Let's start off quickly going through the difficulties that you select when you start the game. You can change these at any time by going into the options and changing them manually. ________________________________________ Difficulty ________________________________________ CASUAL The Casual difficulty setting is basically just easy mode. The game will brake for you most of the time and show a line that you should follow. If you don't drive the line, it won't brake properly for you so you might have to let go of the accelerator or even brake around sharper turns. RACER The Racer difficulty setting is basically normal or medium difficulty. It helps you brake around more difficult corners such as hair pin turns and tight S turns. Other than that, you will have to brake yourself to make it around each turn successfully. KING The King difficulty setting is basically hard difficulty. The game won't do anything for you like brake so you will have to brake yourself and just simply be a good driver. This difficulty should only be played by experienced driving gamers. ________________________________________ Grip ________________________________________ GRIP RACE Grip races are just your normal races. Check out the Driving Strategies section to learn how to race as best as possible. You just have to do however many laps the track requires you to do and simply win the race. SECTOR SHOOTOUT The Sector Shootout is interesting, you have to have the quickest time in each sector of the track. Winning the race doesn't matter, you just need the highest score which means having the fastest times throughout each individual sector. I recommend saving nitrous for your slowest section for the last lap. TIME ATTACK Time Attack only requires you to have the fastest lap possible. You don't have to win the race, just have a really good lap time. Save all of your nitrous boosts for the same lap that you think will be your best, don't do it on your first. If you spin out on the first lap right before the finish line if there's more than two laps, drive backwards a bit to regain speed so you can give your second lap a better time so you won't have to focus so much on your final lap. ________________________________________ Drag ________________________________________ DRAGE RACE You start off warming your tires up by doing a burnout. You have to hit the gas so your RPMs is around the yellow area on the gauge on the bottom of the screen. Try to keep it in there for as long as possible. If there are lights at the start of the drag strip, look at it to get the perfect start. Shift when the RPM meter is in the green area for the perfect shift and save your nitrous for when the RPMs are low, usually on one of the higher gears. WHEELIE Your car has to have some good upgrades to start Wheelies. COMPETITION Most of them should be level 3 upgrades. You need a perfect start and shifting proplery. ________________________________________ Drift ________________________________________ DRIFT RACE The drift competition requires a rear wheel drive. You have to tap the E-Brake and start to turn to slide, then turn the other way to counter steer the turn. You get bonus points for drifting at a high speed, with the nitrous on, staying on the track, and drifting for a long time. ________________________________________ Speed ________________________________________ SPEED CHALLENGE Speed challenges are a race where you just need a really fast car. You can make most of the turns quickly but be careful because crashing at this speed will total your car. TOP SPEED RUN Top Speed Run is the same thing as speed challenge except at the checkpoints, your top speed will be recorded and they will add up for a total score. At the end of the race your score will be added up and whoever has the highest one will win. _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 3. - R A C I N G S T R A T E G I E S NFS03 _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ________________________________________ Racing The Line ________________________________________ Need For Speed: ProStreet took a different approach to racing compared to their previous installments of the series. ProStreet was their first attempt at making a simulation game in the hit arcade series. If you are expecting an arcade game, look elsewhere. Anyways, racing the line is racing the fastest and short part of any turn. There are many different paths for each turn. You may wonder what that means since you can only be on the road for most turns. However, there are many different lines you can take. The different paths you can take is enterring the turn at either the outside, middle, or inside of the track. The same goes for exitting. However, only one of the lines are faster than any other line you can take through a turn. Start off on the far outside side of the track enterring a turn, the outside would be the opposite of the turn. Start to turn a little early so in the middle of the turn, you will be on the inside of the track. If you go through the turn as fast as possible, you will end up back on the outside of the turn. This allows you to make the widest turn possible which allows you to drive as quickly as possible. ________________________________________ Corner Exit Speed ________________________________________ Corner exit speed could be just what helps you pass other racers on the straightaways. It's all about traction, you see when you coast around a turn, your tires are giving 100% of its traction for turning. This allows for the best turning possible. If you hit the brakes, it will split traction between turning and braking. It depends on your car and the track for each turn, but if you brake a little harder and enter a turn more slowly, you can start to accelerate quicker as you exit the turn. This will allow you to reach higher RPMs which will help you simply reach a higher top speed. It could just be the difference you need to pass other cars. ________________________________________ S Turns ________________________________________ S Turns are a little more complicated than the average turn. You have to enter the first part of the turn normally. Make the turn a little sharper so in the middle of the S turn, you should be around the middle of the track. Then you should go through the second turn by driving the line as usual. ________________________________________ Braking ________________________________________ If you are racing any difficulty higher than casual, you will have to brake for most turns. Try to brake before you enter the turn to have as much traction throughout the turn as possible. On sharper turns, you will see brake indicators on the side of the track, they look like signs with flashing lights on them. It depends on your car and brakes on where you should start braking but since you will most likely race the same car in career mode for a while, you will probably get used to it fairly quickly. ________________________________________ Drafting ________________________________________ Drafting can play a pretty major role in passing other cars. Drafting will reduce the drag on your car by closely following the car ahead of you. As you get closer to the other car, the wind will go over the car in front of you and straight over yours. When you go out of the draft line by turning to the side of the car, you will slingshot ahead of the car you were just drafting off of. ________________________________________ Shortcuts ________________________________________ There aren't any legitimate shortcuts in ProStreet like there were in previous installments in the Need for Speed series. However, in tight areas that has grass or dirt around it, you can cut through it. It isn't going to help you around sharp turns but it can help you a lot through S turns. Be careful when you do this though because when you go off the track, you will lose a lot of traction. ________________________________________ Drifting ________________________________________ Drifting is completely different from drafting. What it is, is sliding sideways through turns for style points. To start a drift, just tap the E-Brake button while you enter the turn and your car will spin sideways. You have to be able to turn more and counter steer before you turn too far. If you want to quickly change drifting in the opposite direction, just let go of the gas for a second and turn the wheel the other way. After a while you can start to kind of drift a little side to side down straights so you can keep your point count going up and keep it all in one drift for more points. _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 4. - C A R E E R M O D E NFS04 _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Your career as the ProStreet King starts off with you showing up for a qualifier race to enter the Battle Machine series. It's an incredibly simple race to win since it's the first race of the game. After you win, you will enter the world of ProStreet racing. The first series you can enter is the Battle Machine series. __________________________________________________ Battle Machine __________________________________________________ ______________________________ Challenge: Nevada ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Cheyenne Cars - Golf GTI Reward - 1,800 Tips - This race is really straight forward. Watch out for the chicane right after the start/finish line because you will fly into it if you're not careful. Also be careful at the S turn right before the finish line. There's a wall at the inside so you can't cut through the dirt for a short cut. Event #2 Race Type - Time Attack Track - Dakota Cars - Golf GTI Reward - 1,800 Tips - This race is the same track as the previous one except just in reverse. So the same cautions apply to be careful in certain areas. This game mode is a little different though where the cars start a bit further ahead of you. You don't have to pass them since it's all about best lap time but you will get a better lap time if you pass them obviously. Event #3 Race Type - 1/4 Mile Drag Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Cars - Cobalt SS, Civic Reward - 1,800 Tips - This is just a straight forward drag race. If you aren't very good at drag races, just try it on in regular single-player mode so it won't effect your career. It doesn't matter which cars you pick since they are all pretuned to be equal when you hit the drag strip versus the other cars. However if you really care, the Cobalt is a little bit faster. Event #4 Race Type - 1/4 Mile Drag Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Cars - Cobalt SS, Civic Reward - 1,800 Tips - This is the same exact thing as the previous event. It's just a drag race where all your competition will be equal. The Cobalt is a little faster than the Civic if you really care but your competition will be tuned to be equal to your car so it shouldn't matter. After you complete three of these four events you will officially win your first race day. You will get to choose a car as your prize for dominating the race day and pick either the Cobalt or the Civic. You should definately pick the Cobalt since it's simply a faster car. This tree on the map is going up until you reach the next challenge. ______________________________ Willow Springs ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - GP Circuit Reward - 1,000 Tips - The hairpin turns at this track are incredibly wide so you should not have to slow down too much. You should be able to make the first one at about 95mph and the last one you should brake a little while enterring for a better corner exit speed. The chicane is pretty wide in the middle of the track so don't try to go through the dirt as a short cut, it will only slow you down. Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - Short Circuit C Reward - 1,000 Tips - The hair pin turns in this track can be brutal. Make sure to brake hard for them and try to stay as close to the inside of the track while turning as you can. After the first sharp left turn, you will quickly approach a slight right turn, you can cut through the small patch of sand here. However, this little shortcut is only useful when you attempt to overtake the other cars on the track. If you're not going to pass somebody in this turn, just follow the line because the next turn will be difficult to enter if you cut through that sand. Event #3 Race Type - Time Attack Track - Short Circuit B Reward - 1,000 Tips - This is very similar to the previous event on Short Circuit C. The only difference is there's a little extra added to the track after the third hairpin turn. There is a quick chicane here but you should be able to fly through it. Cut through the sand here for a nice boost past your opposition. The rest should just follow the same tips. Event #4 Race Type - 1/4 Mile Drag Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 1,000 Tips - This is just a regular drag race, no special tips here. The opposition may be a bit faster though so don't be surprised if some people blow past you. ______________________________ Portland International Raceway ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - GP Circuit Reward - 1,500 Tips - The first series of turns is a bit difficult but the rest is pretty simple. You should be able to fly through the grass at the quick S turns before the last hair pin turn to save a few seconds. Event #2 Race Type - 1/4 Mile Drag Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 1,500 Tips - From here on out for Drag races I'm just going to say warm up your tires and shift properly. Event #3 Race Type - 1/2 Mile Drag Track - 1/2 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 1,500 Tips - Just warm up your tires and shift properly. Event #4 Race Type - Time Attack Track - Festival Circuit Reward - 1,500 Tips - Be careful on the backstretch on this one because there's a deadly chicane shortly after the start/finish line here. Go slowly through it and try to stay on the line as best as possible for the best corner exit speed. The next series of turns is kind of sharp but you should already have some experience in this track. Again, you can fly through the grass on the last S turn to save some time. ______________________________ Chicago Airfield II ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Time Attack Track - Airfield Long Reward - 1,800 Tips - There's really no gimmicks to this track. However, a lot of the turns are fairly tight including the hair pin turns. Be careful when passing during the turns because a lot of them are tight and are going to have another quick turn right away. Try to pass on the straightaways when possible. Event #2 Race Type - Sector Shootout Track - Center Field Loop Reward - 1,800 Tips - The S turns on the backstretch aren't that bad at all, you should be able to gas through the first one and let go of the gas through the second one. Try to save your nitrous for the last lap so you can improve the sectors you did poorly on. Event #3 Race Type - Grip Track - Center Field Club Reward - 1,800 Tips - The first left turn is pretty wide but you have to go pretty slow around it too. Depending on your car, you should try to be about 60-70mph while entering it. The next sharp left is also a toughy, don't hit the wall coming out of the turn. The last hairpin turn is a really tight turn so go really slow, somewhere around 30-40mph is key. Event #4 Race Type - Grip Track - Airfield GP Reward - 1,800 Tips - After the first hairpin turn the track is pretty tight for a while. Be careful when passing in this section because you don't want to run into the wall. The last sharp left turn is also pretty rough, take that turn easy, don't try to fly through it because you'll only fly right into the wall. Event #5 Race Type - 1/4 Mile Drag Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 1,800 Tips - Warm up your tires and shift properly. Event #6 Race Type - 1/2 Mile Drag Track - 1/2 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 1,800 Tips - Warm up your tires and shift properly. ______________________________ Challenge: Texas ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Club Circuit Cars - Golf GTi, 350Z (Z33) Reward - 2,500 Tips - The first series of turns is nothing but tight turns, you should be going pretty slowly through these. On the second lap you can cut through the sand on the right entering the first turn to save a few seconds. The last hairpin turn has a slight left enterring it, the map looks like it's sharp but it's not. Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - Short Circuit A Cars - Golf GTi, 350Z (Z33) Reward - 2,500 Tips - The first hairpin turn is really wide so you will only have to brake a little. The next couple of turns just keep getting sharper so slow down for them. You can cut through the sand on the S turn in the middle of the long left before the finish line to save some time and speed. Event #3 Race Type - Grip Track - GP Circuit B Cars - Golf GTi, 350Z (Z33) Reward - 2,500 Tips - The wide turns right before and after the start/finish line are really wide and the one before the finish line has banking so it's easy to make these at high speeds. The rest of the track has sharp turns but the track is pretty wide throughout so it shouldn't be too tough. Event #4 Race Type - Sector Shootout Track - Short Circuit B Cars - Golf GTi, 350Z (Z33) Reward - 2,500 Tips - The turns after the first hairpin turn are pretty tight. However through the second and third turn, you can cut through the sand as a quick shortcut. During the last wide turn, you can also cut through the sand during the S turn. Event #5 Race Type - Sector Shootout Track - Short Circuit A Cars - Golf GTi, 350Z (Z33) Reward - 2,500 Tips - The first hairpin turn is really wide so you will only have to brake a little. The next couple of turns just keep getting sharper so slow down for them. You can cut through the sand on the S turn in the middle of the long left before the finish line to save some time and speed. Event #6 Race Type - Time Attack Track - GP Circuit A Cars - Golf GTi, 350Z (Z33) Reward - 2,500 Tips - The series of turns after the first hairpin turn is pretty tight. Take it easy through those turns, especially while passing. When you reach the S turn on the last wide turn, just cut through the sand to save some time. This tree is going down on the map until you reach the Promotion race. ______________________________ Chicago Airfield ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Center Field Loop Reward - 1,200 Tips - The S turns on the backstretch aren't that bad at all, you should be able to gas through the first one and let go of the gas through the second one.

Again, you can fly through the grass on the last S turn to save some time. ______________________________ Willow Springs II ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - GP Circuit Reverse Reward - 1,500 Tips - The first hair pin turn is really wide so you should be able to fly through it, you might have to let go of the gas depending on how fast your car is. The first turn off the back straightaway is a bit harsh since you will likely jump a bit before you enter it so brake a little earlier than usual. The next few turns are really sharp and require braking. The last hair pin turn could be done pretty quickly, it might require tapping the brakes to stay in the line though. Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - Short Circuit B Reward - 1,500 Tips - This is very similar to the previous event on Short Circuit C. The only difference is there's a little extra added to the track after the third hairpin turn. There is a quick chicane here but you should be able to fly through it. Cut through the sand here for a nice boost past your opposition. The rest should just follow the same tips. Event #3 Race Type - Grip Track - Short Circuit A Reward - 1,500 Tips - All of these turns are incredibly sharp and lead to a pretty slow race. There are two quick S turns on the back straightaway after the sharp right with banking that you can cut through the sand for. After the left turn at the end of that straight, you can cut through the sand for the sharp right for a few extra tenths of a second.

Watch out for the chicane right after the start/finish line because you will fly into it if you're not careful. Also be careful at the S turn right before the finish line. There's a wall at the inside so you can't cut through the dirt for a short cut. Event #2 Race Type - Sector Shootout Track - Tornado Reward - 3,000 Tips - All of the turns in this track are pretty sharp and some are tight so be careful and brake for them, try to overtake the other cars during the straights when you can unless you have a good shot entering a turn. The first third or so of the track is off road and on gravel so you will slide a bit enterring and exitting turns. Event #3 Race Type - 1/2 Mile Drag Track - 1/2 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 3,000 Tips - Warm up your tires and shift properly. Event #4 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course B Reward - 3,000 Tips - Drifting can be a bit difficult. You get bonuses for staying on the track, drifting longer and faster, etc, anything that makes it look really good and hard. Just try to accumulate the most points to win this competition. Just so you know, if you get a high score of around 1,300 you should be fine. Also try to gas through the straight in between turns for a high speed bonus. Event #5 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course A Reward - 3,000 Tips - This track is actually pretty tough, just keep practicing until you can get a decent drift score. Event #6 Race Type - Grip Track - Dakota Reward - 3,000 Tips - This race is the same track as the previous one except just in reverse. So the same cautions apply to be careful in certain areas. This game mode is a little different though where the cars start a bit further ahead of you. You don't have to pass them since it's all about best lap time but you will get a better lap time if you pass them obviously. __________________________________________________ Super Promotion __________________________________________________ ______________________________ Showdown: Chicago ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Airfield Long Reward - 3,000 Tips - There's really no gimmicks to this track.

Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - Short Circuit Cars - GTO Reward - 3,000 Tips - There also isn't really any tricks to this track. It's similar to the GP Circuit here so just take the turns slowly before you fly off the track, especially the last hairpin turn before the finish line. Event #3 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course B Cars - GTO, G35 (V35) Reward - 3,000 Tips - This drift course may look bad at first with wide turns but it's actually pretty easy to rack up high points. Start to drift around the first hairpin turn and keep drifting until you reach the long left. Drift through all of that in one drift and you'll easily win the drift if you stay on track during the whole thing. For some extra quick points, just drift through the last turn and reach the finish line. Event #4 Race Type - Sector Shootout Track - GP Circuit Cars - GTO Reward - 3,000 Tips - There's really no tips involved in this track, just take a lot of the turns slowly because most of them are really sharp. Event #5 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course E Cars - GTO, G35 (V35) Reward - 3,000 Tips - This Drift Course is incredibly easy because of how many turns it has. You should be able to drift pretty much the whole time from the first turn to the last. You're better off to stop drifting on the quick straightaway in the middle of the track though. From here, the next few events will be going up on the map. ______________________________ Autobahnring ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - A-54 Express Reward - 2,400 Tips - The first turn is pretty quick for a hairpin turn. The rest of the turns are pretty quick to. Most of them are S turns which you could cruise through relatively quickly. Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - Autobahn GP Reward - 2,400 Tips - The first turn is pretty sharp but the rest isn't too bad. You should only need to let go of the gas and maybe tap the brakes lightly for most of the turns. The chicane on the backstretch doesn't look too bad but it is when you're flying at 140mph. Slow down a little for that turn before you total your car. Event #3 Race Type - Sector Shootout Track - A-54 Interloop Reward - 2,400 Tips - The first and last hair pin turns are pretty slow, so be careful around those. The rest of the turns aren't that bad and should only require letting go of the accelerator, maybe some light braking. Event #4 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course A Reward - 2,400 Tips - There's nothing special about this drift course, just go into the first drift as fast as possible for the high speed bonus. Event #5 Race Type - Speed Challenge Track - Autobahnring A Reward - 2,400 Tips - Since you haven't done a Speed Challenge yet, you may need a car suggestion. In which case, I highly suggest the Corvette. With only cheap upgrades you should be able to blow your competition away. With that said, most of these turns are wide turns so you can speed through them. Just be careful, you may have to hit the brakes through some of them. Don't slow down for the hairpin turn either, the banking allows you to make the turn at high speeds. Event #6 Race Type - Top Speed Run Track - Autobahnring B Reward - 2,400 Tips - This one has some sharper turns so be careful around them at the beginning. The hairpin turn is banked again so you can go around it at top speed. After the hairpin turn the track gets very tight so be careful. ______________________________ Autopolis II ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Time Attack Track - Short Circuit Reward - 2,000 Tips - There also isn't really any tricks to this track. It's similar to the GP Circuit here so just take the turns slowly before you fly off the track, especially the last hairpin turn before the finish line. Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - Lakeside Reward - 2,000 Tips - For the first chicane, you can cut through the grass to the right to enter it quicker, don't cut through it while exiting it though. All of the hairpin turns on this track are incredibly sharp so brake hard for them. I take them at around 25-30mph so take them incredibly slowly. Event #3 Race Type - 1/4 Mile Drag Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 2,000 Tips - Just warm up your tires and shift properly. Event #4 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course A Reward - 2,000 Tips - This track is very easy, but it's very short. Try to exit the turns on the inside of the track so you can quickly enter the next turn easily. ______________________________ Tokyo Dockyard II ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Kyobashi Attack Reward - 3,600 Tips - All of the turns are pretty sharp here. Be careful at the second and fourth sharp turns, you should brake early since there's an uphill climb and if your car is too fast, you will go airborne and most likely hit a wall. Also the third turn, there are barriers that block the right half of the road enterring the turn. Watch out for the sharp S turn at the end of each lap, those can kill you. Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - Route 4 Offramp Reward - 3,600 Tips - There are only 3 sets of turns here but they're all pretty sharp. After the first hair pin turn and at the slight S turn, there are water barrels on the right side of the track. You can smash through those to make the turn a little easier if you have to. Event #3 Race Type - Time Attack Track - Ginza Go Reward - 3,600 Tips - All of the turns are pretty sharp here. Be careful at the second and fourth sharp turns, you should brake early since there's an uphill climb and if your car is too fast, you will go airborne and most likely hit a wall. Also the third turn, there are barriers that block the right half of the road enterring the turn. Event #4 Race Type - 1/4 Mile Drag Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 3,600 Tips - Warm up your tires and shift properly. Event #5 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course B Reward - 3,600 Tips - Start drifting late into the first turn. After that, you will reach a sharp right turn. Be careful on this turn because it kind of has an illusion that the right turn is further away than it actually is. Event #6 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course A Reward - 3,600 Tips - This drift course may be a bit difficult at first. The first turn is easy to drift through but it makes the second turn tough to enter. Just practice the transfer from the first to the second turn and once you nail it, you should win this drift easily. ______________________________ Mondello Park II ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Short Circuit A Reward - 3,000 Tips - All of the turns in this track are kind of weird. Go through them all slowly around the first lap to get a feel for them. The reason they feel weird is because they get much sharper the further into the turn you go. Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - GP Circuit Reward - 3,000 Tips - All of the hairpin turns are really sharp so be careful through them. The S turn around 2/3 into the lap can easily be taken quickly by flying through the grass. You can also cut through the grass on the quick left after the second to last hair pin turn. Event #3 Race Type - Time Attack Track - Club Circuit Reward - 3,000 Tips - The first and last hairpin turns are the only tough ones. The rest should be pretty simple, just letting go of the gas or light braking should do. Event #4 Race Type - 1/4 Mile Drag Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 4,000 Tips - Just warm up your tires and shift properly. ______________________________ Autobahnring II ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - A-54 Express Reward - 4,200 Tips - The first turn is pretty quick for a hairpin turn. The rest of the turns are pretty quick to. Most of them are S turns which you could cruise through relatively quickly. Event #2 Race Type - 1/4 Mile Drag Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 4,200 Tips - Just warm up your tires and shift properly. Event #3 Race Type - Speed Challenge Track - Autobahnring C Reward - 4,200 Tips - A lot of these turns might force you to let go of the accelerator if you have a car that can hit 200mph pretty easily. The hairpins are banked as usual for high speeds. Be careful after the first hairpin because the track gets pretty tight. Also be careful at the end because the right half of the road is cut off about a quarter mile before the finish line. Event #4 Race Type - Top Speed Run Track - Auobahnring B Reward - 4,200 Tips - This one has some sharper turns so be careful around them at the beginning. The hairpin turn is banked again so you can go around it at top speed. After the hairpin turn the track gets very tight so be careful. Event #5 Race Type - Sector Shootou Track - Autobahn GP Reward - 4,200 Tips - The first turn is pretty sharp but the rest isn't too bad. You should only need to let go of the gas and maybe tap the brakes lightly for most of the turns. The chicane on the backstretch doesn't look too bad but it is when you're flying at 140mph. Slow down a little for that turn before you total your car. Event #6 Race Type - Top Speed Run Track - Autobahnring A Reward - 4,200 Tips - Most of these turns are wide turns so you can speed through them. Just be careful, you may have to hit the brakes through some of them. Don't slow down for the hairpin turn either, the banking allows you to make the turn at high speeds. From here on out, the rest of the events are below the Challenge: Autopolis bracket on the career map. ______________________________ Tokyo Dockyard ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Ginza Go Reward - 2,400 Tips - All of the turns are pretty sharp here. Be careful at the second and fourth sharp turns, you should brake early since there's an uphill climb and if your car is too fast, you will go airborne and most likely hit a wall.

Event #4 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course C Reward - 2,400 Tips - This track is very tight, there aren't many tips to it so you just have to do it very well. Event #5 Race Type - Time Attack Track - Shimbashi Reward - 2,400 Tips - The second and fourth turn could make you go airborne so brake a little early. The third turn narrows as you enter it. The S turns at the beginning of the track aren't bad and could be made relatively quickly. ______________________________ Ebisu ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - South Circuit Reward - 3,000 Tips - All of the hairpin turns are very sharp so take them slowly, most of them actually get sharper as you go through them. The last S turn, you can cut off to the left side of the track a little to save some time and speed. Event #2 Race Type - Sector Shootout Track - West Course Reward - 3,000 Tips - All of the turns require braking, even the light turns on the backstretch. The reason those need braking is because you should be approaching them at high speeds. On the last S turn, you can go slightly off the track to the right just to the left of the wall to save some time and speed. Event #3 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course C Reward - 3,000 Tips - This track is very short and the last turn seems like it turns forever. This is another one of those drift tracks that just takes a few tries before you can win. Event #4 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course A Reward - 3,000 Tips - This one is pretty simple. Just gain as much speed as possible and drift through this turn and try to hold this drift into the second. Event #5 Race Type - Speed Challenge Track - Fukushima B Reward - 3,000 Tips - Be careful on this track because there are a lot of jumps and when you land at high speeds you risk spinning out and totalling your car. Also try your best to stay on the road, hitting the curb that fast can easily spin you out. Just try to stay in the center of the road because some spots also get pretty tight. Event #6 Race Type - Top Speed Run Track - Fukushima A Reward - 3,000 Tips - This track is also very tight but at least there aren't dangerous jumps. The main points to be careful is enterring the tunnels and exitting the first tunnel, the rest should be easy cruising. ______________________________ Mondello Park ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Club Circuit Reward - 3,000 Tips - The first and last hairpin turns are the only tough ones. The rest should be pretty simple, just letting go of the gas or light braking should do.

Event #3 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course A Reward - 3,000 Tips - Be careful not to go off the track on the first right turn, it gets pretty sharp. The last hairpin turn is also pretty sharp but if you do it all in one drift, you won't be going too fast when you reach it anyways. Event #4 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course B Reward - 3,000 Tips - For some reason they make the first car in the animation before you race go through the signs that tell you to turn right. Just follow the black path on the road and drift through this in one long drift for an easy win. Event #5 Race Type - Sector Shootout Track - Short Circuit B Reward - 3,000 Tips - This track is very short but all of the turns are sharp so be careful as you drive through them. Event #6 Race Type - Time Attack Track - Short Circuit A Reward - 3,000 Tips - All of the turns in this track are kind of weird. Go through them all slowly around the first lap to get a feel for them. The reason they feel weird is because they get much sharper the further into the turn you go. ______________________________ Mendello Park III ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - GP Circuit Reward - 3,500 Tips - All of the hairpin turns are really sharp so be careful through them. The S turn around 2/3 into the lap can easily be taken quickly by flying through the grass. You can also cut through the grass on the quick left after the second to last hair pin turn. Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - Short Circuit A Reward - 3,500 Tips - All of the turns in this track are kind of weird. Go through them all slowly around the first lap to get a feel for them.

Event #4 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course C Reward - 3,500 Tips - This one is pretty tough. The first few turns aren't much for turns in a drift course so try to just slide side to side as you approach the last hairpin turn and get a nice big drift out of it. Event #5 Race Type - Sector Shootou Track - Club Circuit Reward - 3,500 Tips - The first and last hairpin turns are the only tough ones. The rest should be pretty simple, just letting go of the gas or light braking should do.

Event #2 Race Type - Time Attack Track - Togue Course Cars - M3 E46 Reward - 5,500 Tips - A lot of the hairpin turns are very tight and sharp. I recommend hitting the E-Brake as you enter these turns so you can just whip around them. Event #3 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course D Cars - Supra Reward - 5,500 Tips - This whole course is really tight. Try not to drift to the right at the end of this first turn because when you think it's going to go straight again, it makes a sharp left. Just try to keep an eye on the track layout so you can always see where you're heading. Event #4 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course F Cars - Supra Reward - 5,500 Tips - This track is very short. I suggest skipping the first light S turn since the turns aren't very sharp. The only tricky part is the next S turn. Just drift when you feel comfortable and you should be able to beat it without a problem. Event #5 Race Type - Speed Challenge Track - Fukushima A Cars - M3 E46, Supra Reward - 5,500 Tips - This track is also very tight but at least there aren't dangerous jumps. The main points to be careful is enterring the tunnels and exitting the first tunnel, the rest should be easy cruising. Event #6 Race Type - Top Speed Run Track - Fukushima B Cars - M3 E46, Supra Reward - 5,500 Tips - Be careful on this track because there are a lot of jumps and when you land at high speeds you risk spinning out and totalling your car.

Event #7 Race Type - Speed Challenge Track - Fukushima C Cars - M3 E46, Supra Reward - 5,500 Tips - Be careful enterring and exitting the tunnels in the first half. There are a few narrow bridges you should be careful at as well. In the second half, be careful with the jumps and the sidewalks, if you aren't careful with those, you're just asking to spin out and total your car. __________________________________________________ Super Promotion __________________________________________________ ______________________________ Showdown: Autopolis ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Short Circuit Reward - 4,000 Tips - There also isn't really any tricks to this track.

Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - A-54 Interloop Cars - Skyline GT-R (R34) Reward - 4,800 Tips - The first and last hair pin turns are pretty slow, so be careful around those. The rest of the turns aren't that bad and should only require letting go of the accelerator, maybe some light braking. Event #3 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course B Cars - Viper SRT10 Reward - 4,800 Tips - Learn how to drift throughout this whole first wide turn without going off the track. When you can easily drift through that turn, you should be able to make it through the rest really easily. Event #4 Race Type - Speed Challenge Track - Autobahnring C Cars - Viper SRT10, Skyline GT-R (R34) Reward - 4,800 Tips - A lot of these turns might force you to let go of the accelerator if you have a car that can hit 200mph pretty easily. The hairpins are banked as usual for high speeds. Be careful after the first hairpin because the track gets pretty tight. Also be careful at the end because the right half of the road is cut off about a quarter mile before the finish line. Event #5 Race Type - Top Speed Run Track - Autobahnring A Cars - Viper SRT10, Skyline GT-R (R34) Reward - 4,800 Tips - Most of these turns are wide turns so you can speed through them.

Event #6 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course D Cars - Viper SRT10 Reward - 4,800 Tips - This drift course is very difficult. Try to drift through the first turn but not too hard or you will slam into the wall. The other tough part is the little straightaway in the middle of the track, don't drift to the left to try to straighten out or else you will have to slam into the wall or slam the brakes. *Please Note - The rest of the events below are above this challenge in the career map unless stated otherwise. ______________________________ Infineon ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - GP Circuit Reward - 3,000 Tips - The first few S turns are a bit tough because you just slide even with upgraded tires so be careful. The back stretch with several S turns should be taken a little slower than you think since they are kind of sharp and walls blocking the short path through the dirt. Event #2 Race Type - Sector Shootout Track - Long Circuit Reward - 3,000 Tips - The S turns near the beginning are kind of slow so be careful. The rest of the track is pretty simple, but be very careful at the tight chicane because it's very sharp.

Event #4 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course A Reward - 3,000 Tips - This one isn't tough, don't try to drift through hard through this first S turn.

Event #3 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course C Reward - 3,600 Tips - This one is pretty simple, just be careful because it's a pretty tight track. The first few turns aren't sharp but you will rack up your points at the end. Event #4 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course A Reward - 3,600 Tips - This drift course is pretty hard. The last S turn is sharp and tight so be careful there. It's hard but you have to be able to drift the whole class to win. Event #5 Race Type - Grip Track - Center Field Loop Reward - 3,600 Tips - The S turns on the backstretch aren't that bad at all, you should be able to gas through the first one and let go of the gas through the second one. Try to save your nitrous for the last lap so you can improve the sectors you did poorly on. Event #6 Race Type - Sector Shootout Track - Airfield Long Reward - 3,600 Tips - There's really no gimmicks to this track. However, a lot of the turns are fairly tight including the hair pin turns. Be careful when passing during the turns because a lot of them are tight and are going to have another quick turn right away. Try to pass on the straightaways when possible. ______________________________ Ebisu ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - West Course Reward - 4,000 Tips - All of the turns require braking, even the light turns on the backstretch.

Event #4 Race Type - Top Speed Run Track - Fukushima C Reward - 4,500 Tips - Be careful enterring and exitting the tunnels in the first half. There are a few narrow bridges you should be careful at as well. In the second half, be careful with the jumps and the sidewalks, if you aren't careful with those, you're just asking to spin out and total your car. Event #5 Race Type - Top Speed Run Track - Fukushima B Reward - 4,500 Tips - Be careful on this track because there are a lot of jumps and when you land at high speeds you risk spinning out and totalling your car. Also try your best to stay on the road, hitting the curb that fast can easily spin you out.

Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - Short Circuit Reward - 4,500 Tips - The first three turns are tight but the rest are pretty quick. The hairpin turn towards the end is pretty long and wide so you could go through it relatively quickly. Event #3 Race Type - Grip Track - GP Circuit Reward - 4,500 Tips - The first few uphill S turns can be pretty hard if you don't brake early. The rest is pretty simple, the second hard right is really sharp though. It is almost a hairpin turn so take it slowly.

The hairpin turn towards the end is pretty long and wide so you could go through it relatively quickly. ______________________________ Nevada Highway ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Tornado Reward - 5,400 Tips - All of the turns in this track are pretty sharp and some are tight so be careful and brake for them, try to overtake the other cars during the straights when you can unless you have a good shot entering a turn. The first third or so of the track is off road and on gravel so you will slide a bit enterring and exitting turns. Event #2 Race Type - 1/2 Mile Drag Track - 1/2 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 5,400 Tips - You might want to skip this one, I always have problems where the game makes me start to turn right away and then I get totalled because it won't even let me steer away from the wall. Event #3 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course C Reward - 5,400 Tips - This drift course is kind of difficult since it's short. Try to drift through the first turn and into the second. Start to use your nitrous boost through the second turn. Event #4 Race Type - Speed Challenge Track - Nevada Highway B Reward - 5,400 Tips - The first uphill climb is really tall. Don't go too fast over it or you will go flying and most likely into the telephone pole. Event #5 Race Type - Top Speed Run Track - Nevada Highway A Reward - 5,400 Tips - Be careful a little before the fourth checkpoint. After two tall hills is a quick and narrow S turn to the left. The first part of the long S turn is downhill so pay attention before you fly off the track. Event #6 Race Type - Sector Shootout Track - Dakota Reward - 5,400 Tips - This race is the same track as the previous one except just in reverse. So the same cautions apply to be careful in certain areas. This game mode is a little different though where the cars start a bit further ahead of you. You don't have to pass them since it's all about best lap time but you will get a better lap time if you pass them obviously. Event #7 Race Type - Top Speed Run Track - Nevada Highway C Reward - 5,400 Tips - This track is a mixture of the other speed runs in this series. Just try to stay in the middle of the track and slow down at the tops of hills. ______________________________ Texas World Speedway ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - GP Circuit A Reward - 5,000 Tips - The series of turns after the first hairpin turn is pretty tight. Take it easy through those turns, especially while passing. When you reach the S turn on the last wide turn, just cut through the sand to save some time. Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - Oval Circuit Reward - 5,000 Tips - This one is basically a speedway, nothing special or difficult. Event #3 Race Type - Sector Shootout Track - GP Circuit B Reward - 5,000 Tips - The wide turns right before and after the start/finish line are really wide and the one before the finish line has banking so it's easy to make these at high speeds. The rest of the track has sharp turns but the track is pretty wide throughout so it shouldn't be too tough. Event #4 Race Type - Time Attack Track - Short Circuit B Reward - 5,000 Tips - The turns after the first hairpin turn are pretty tight. However through the second and third turn, you can cut through the sand as a quick shortcut. During the last wide turn, you can also cut through the sand during the S turn. Event #5 Race Type - 1/4 Mile Drag Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 5,000 Tips - This drag strip is also pretty buggy, they often put your car close to the wall and don't really let you turn away from it. Event #6 Race Type - Wheelie Competition Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 5,000 Tips - I suggest getting a Chevelle and getting stage 3 upgrades in pretty much every category. You don't have to win, you just need the longest wheelie. Take your time to get the perfect start, you don't have to go right when it turns green. Keep getting perfect shifts and just as you start to go down around the third or fourth gear, use your nitrous boost to keep your wheelie up. Event #7 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course D Reward - 5,000 Tips - Use your nitrous boost going into the first turn to really gain some speed. You need to drift through this whole long turn. At the end is a quick straight, try to swerve side to side for points. The last turn is pretty sharp so don't fly through it unless you want to slam into a wall. *From here on out, the events are below the original Super Promotion event until stated otherwise. ______________________________ Willow Springs ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Horse Thief Mile Reward - 3,000 Tips - All of the hairpin turns are very sharp here. Go slowly through them and be careful after the last hairpin turn. The turns on that straightaway are just tight so slow down for them. Event #2 Race Type - Time Attack Track - GP Circuit Reward - 3,000 Tips - The first turn is pretty sharp. However the second turn, the hair pin turn, is wide and can be taken at high speeds. The rest of the turns will require braking. As you enter the long hairpin turn at the end, you can enter it quickly but towards the end of the turn, it gets very sharp.

Event #4 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course D Reward - 3,000 Tips - Drift through the first few turns and be careful enterring the hairpin turn at the end of this course. Event #5 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course E Reward - 3,000 Tips - Drift through the first left and try to swerve side to side down the straight. Fly through the long turn while drifting and use a nitrous boost there. Event #6 Race Type - Wheelie Competition Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 3,000 Tips - In case this is your first wheelie competition, I recommend getting the Chevelle. Get Stage 3 upgrades for pretty much everything. You don't have to be fast, just have the longest wheelie. To do this, just shift perfectly and get the perfect start, use the nitrous boost in the third or fourth gear when the front end starts to drop. ______________________________ Tokyo Dockyard ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Iikura Canyon Reward - 3,600 Tips - After the first hairpin turn be careful. The offramp is down hill and you will slam into the wall if you are going too fast. The rest of turns are slow but they are easy. Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - Ginza Go Reward - 3,600 Tips - All of the turns are pretty sharp here. Be careful at the second and fourth sharp turns, you should brake early since there's an uphill climb and if your car is too fast, you will go airborne and most likely hit a wall. Also the third turn, there are barriers that block the right half of the road enterring the turn. Event #3 Race Type - 1/4 Mile Drag Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 3,600 Tips - Just warm up your tires and shift properly. Event #4 Race Type - Wheelie Competition Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 3,600 Tips - In case this is your first wheelie competition, I recommend getting the Chevelle.

Event #5 Race Type - Sector Shootout Track - Route 4 Offramp Reward - 3,600 Tips - There are only 3 sets of turns here but they're all pretty sharp. After the first hair pin turn and at the slight S turn, there are water barrels on the right side of the track. You can smash through those to make the turn a little easier if you have to. ______________________________ Portland International Raceway ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Festival Circuit Reward - 4,500 Tips - Be careful on the backstretch on this one because there's a deadly chicane shortly after the start/finish line here. Go slowly through it and try to stay on the line as best as possible for the best corner exit speed. The next series of turns is kind of sharp but you should already have some experience in this track. Again, you can fly through the grass on the last S turn to save some time. Event #2 Race Type - Sector Shootou Track - GP Circuit Reward - 4,500 Tips - The first series of turns is a bit difficult but the rest is pretty simple. You should be able to fly through the grass at the quick S turns before the last hair pin turn to save a few seconds. Event #3 Race Type - 1/4 Mile Drag Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 4,500 Tips - Just warm your tires and shift properly. Event #4 Race Type - Wheelie Competition Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 4,500 Tips - Just warm your tires and shift properly.

Event #6 Race Type - 1/2 Mile Drag Track - 1/2 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 4,500 Tips - Just warm your tires and shift properly. ______________________________ Autobahnring II ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Time Attack Track - A-54 Interloop Reward - 5,400 Tips - The first turn is pretty quick for a hairpin turn. The rest of the turns are pretty quick to. Most of them are S turns which you could cruise through relatively quickly. Event #2 Race Type - 1/4 Mile Drag Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 5,400 Tips - Just warm your tires up and shift properly. Event #3 Race Type - Wheelie Competition Track - 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 5,400 Tips - Just warm your tires up and shift properly. Event #4 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course C Reward - 5,400 Tips - Nitrous boost into the first turn and drift through the first few turns. At the second left, use another nitrous if you have it and just drift all the way through this turn. Event #5 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course D Reward - 5,400 Tips - This drift course is very difficult. Try to drift through the first turn but not too hard or you will slam into the wall. The other tough part is the little straightaway in the middle of the track, don't drift to the left to try to straighten out or else you will have to slam into the wall or slam the brakes. Event #6 Race Type - Speed Challenge Track - Autobahnring B Reward - 5,400 Tips - This one has some sharper turns so be careful around them at the beginning. The hairpin turn is banked again so you can go around it at top speed. After the hairpin turn the track gets very tight so be careful. Event #7 Race Type - Top Speed Run Track - Autobahnring C Reward - 5,400 Tips - A lot of these turns might force you to let go of the accelerator if you have a car that can hit 200mph pretty easily. The hairpins are banked as usual for high speeds. Be careful after the first hairpin because the track gets pretty tight. Also be careful at the end because the right half of the road is cut off about a quarter mile before the finish line. ______________________________ Nevada Highway II ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Dakota Reward - 6,000 Tips - This race is the same track as the previous one except just in reverse. So the same cautions apply to be careful in certain areas. This game mode is a little different though where the cars start a bit further ahead of you. You don't have to pass them since it's all about best lap time but you will get a better lap time if you pass them obviously. Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - Canyon Reward - 6,000 Tips - About a quarter of this track is on dirt so take those turns a little slower than you normally would. The chicane when you get back on pavement isn't too bad but still does require braking. The rest of the turns are simple turns. Event #3 Race Type - Time Attack Track - Tornado Reward - 6,000 Tips - All of the turns in this track are pretty sharp and some are tight so be careful and brake for them, try to overtake the other cars during the straights when you can unless you have a good shot entering a turn. The first third or so of the track is off road and on gravel so you will slide a bit enterring and exitting turns. Event #4 Race Type - Speed Challenge Track - Nevada Highway A Reward - 6,000 Tips - Be careful a little before the fourth checkpoint. After two tall hills is a quick and narrow S turn to the left. The first part of the long S turn is downhill so pay attention before you fly off the track. Event #5 Race Type - Speed Challenge Track - Nevada Highway C Reward - 6,000 Tips - Just try to stay in the middle of the track and slow down at the tops of hills. Event #6 Race Type - Top Speed Run Track - Nevada Highway C Reward - 6,000 Tips - Just try to stay in the middle of the track and slow down at the tops of hills. Event #7 Race Type - Top Speed Run Track - Nevada Highway B Reward - 6,000 Tips - The first uphill climb is really tall. Don't go too fast over it or you will go flying and most likely into the telephone pole. ______________________________ Showdown: Autobahnring ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Grip Track - Autobahn GP Reward - 5,400 Tips - The first turn is pretty sharp but the rest isn't too bad. You should only need to let go of the gas and maybe tap the brakes lightly for most of the turns. The chicane on the backstretch doesn't look too bad but it is when you're flying at 140mph. Slow down a little for that turn before you total your car. Event #2 Race Type - 1/2 Mile Drag Track - 1/2 Mile Drag Strip Reward - 5,400 Tips - Just warm up your tires and shift properly. Event #3 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course A Reward - 5,400 Tips - There's nothing special about this drift course, just go into the first drift as fast as possible for the high speed bonus. Event #4 Race Type - Speed Challenge Track - Autobahnring A Reward - 5,400 Tips - Since you haven't done a Speed Challenge yet, you may need a car suggestion. In which case, I highly suggest the Corvette. With only cheap upgrades you should be able to blow your competition away. With that said, most of these turns are wide turns so you can speed through them. Just be careful, you may have to hit the brakes through some of them. Don't slow down for the hairpin turn either, the banking allows you to make the turn at high speeds. Event #5 Race Type - Top Speed Run Track - Autobahnring C Reward - 5,400 Tips - A lot of these turns might force you to let go of the accelerator if you have a car that can hit 200mph pretty easily. The hairpins are banked as usual for high speeds. Be careful after the first hairpin because the track gets pretty tight. Also be careful at the end because the right half of the road is cut off about a quarter mile before the finish line. Event #6 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course B Reward - 5,400 Tips - Learn how to drift throughout this whole first wide turn without going off the track. When you can easily drift through that turn, you should be able to make it through the rest really easily. *Please Note that from here you HAVE TO dominate a race to advance in a tier. __________________________________________________ Nitrocide __________________________________________________ Before starting any of these series, if your fastest car isn't a Speed Challenge car, make it.

There are a few narrow bridges you should be careful at as well. In the second half, be careful with the jumps and the sidewalks, if you aren't careful with those, you're just asking to spin out and total your car. Event #2 Race Type - Speed Challenge Track - Fukushima B Reward - 13,000 Tips - Be careful on this track because there are a lot of jumps and when you land at high speeds you risk spinning out and totalling your car. Also try your best to stay on the road, hitting the curb that fast can easily spin you out. Just try to stay in the center of the road because some spots also get pretty tight. Event #3 Race Type - Speed Challenge Track - Fukushima A Reward - 13,000 Tips - This track is also very tight but at least there aren't dangerous jumps. The main points to be careful is enterring the tunnels and exitting the first tunnel, the rest should be easy cruising.

Just gain as much speed as possible and drift through this turn and try to hold this drift into the second. Event #2 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course C Reward - 6,500 Tips - This track is very short and the last turn seems like it turns forever. This is another one of those drift tracks that just takes a few tries before you can win. Event #3 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course B Reward - 6,500 Tips - The first turn is easy to drift through, but the transition from the first turn to the second is hard so be careful as you enter it. Event #4 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course D Reward - 6,500 Tips - This whole course is really tight. Try not to drift to the right at the end of this first turn because when you think it's going to go straight again, it makes a sharp left. Just try to keep an eye on the track layout so you can always see where you're heading. Event #5 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course E Reward - 6,500 Tips - The first turn is easy to drift through. It's kind of hard to drift from the first into the second turn.

Drift through all of these turns and just take really hard turns at the hairpins. Use your nitrous around hairpins whenever you can. ______________________________ Tokyo Dockyard ______________________________ Event #1 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course C Reward - 7,200 Tips - This track is very tight, there aren't many tips to it so you just have to do it very well. Event #2 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course B Reward - 7,200 Tips - Start drifting late into the first turn. After that, you will reach a sharp right turn. Be careful on this turn because it kind of has an illusion that the right turn is further away than it actually is.

Event #2 Race Type - Drift Track - Drift Course B Reward - 5,500 Tips - This drift course may look bad at first with wide turns but it's actually pretty easy to rack up high points. Start to drift around the first hairpin turn and keep drifting until you reach the long left.

The last hairpin turn has a slight left enterring it, the map looks like it's sharp but it's not. Event #2 Race Type - Grip Track - Oval Circuit Reward - 5,000 Tips - This one is basically a speedway, nothing special or difficult. Event #3 Race Type - Grip Track - Short Circuit B Reward - 5,000 Tips - The turns after the first hairpin turn are pretty tight.

Event #4 Race Type - Time Attack Track - Horse Thief Mile Reward - 5,500 Tips - All of the hairpin turns are very sharp here. Go slowly through them and be careful after the last hairpin turn.

We will start with the performance upgrades. There are five different stages of upgrades. They are Stock, which your car comes with, Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3, and Stage 4. You can buy Stage 1-3 for most low end cars whenever you want, but you can only buy Stage 3 for high end cars such as the Pagani Zonda. Stage 4 can only be won by winning and dominating race days. Each stage obviously does more of an upgrade than the previous. Below is each type of upgrade and what they specifically upgrade: Engine - Power Drivetrain - Power Force Induction - Power Suspension - Stability Brakes - Stability Tires - Stability Nitrous Oxide - Power** Body - Aero* Visuals - Only Appearance The prices alter between each stage and each vehicle. *Some of the Body upgrades allow you to autosculpt. This allows you to make the parts look how you want them to look. Some parts will alter the vehicle's performance such as the spoiler and front bumper. Your goal is to lower drag as best as possible. **Each stage of Nitrous Oxide will give you an extra boost. Stage 1 gives you one use, stage 2 gives you two uses, etc. _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 6. - P A S S W O R D S NFS06 _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The passwords are here to help you easily unlock everything in the game or easily get money without really doing anything.
