You went through 85 challenges without a sweat. Now it's time to test your mad skillz. The best comparison I can think of for this level is that it's as close as you get to an end level boss in a racing game. Lots of people had problems beating that RX-7/Impreza to the finish line. Not that the traffic have been helpful. If you're totally frustrated by this stage, here's a tip. Downgrade your Engine/Exhaust, Drivetrain, and E.C.U. Packages to Stock. Then try that race again. Odds are you'll get a 1st place finish after an attempt or two. Best explanation I can offer is that your opponents are handicapped if your ride ain't the fastest. This trick should work too if you opt to change the car model instead of doing downgrades, for example a Skyline to a Civic.

Frequently Asked Questions ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q. How many challenges are there in Underground Mode? A. 112, although the indicator will always show 111 in total. - Q. What are the different Style Points available? A. Plus: Powerslide, Hang Time, Clean Lap, Clean Section (+50 x 2), Drafting, Near Miss, Shortcut, Head Start, Lead Lap, Victory Minus: Hit Traffic - Q. Does selection of difficulty level for each challenge affects the rewards given on completion? A. To my knowledge, no. - Q. Is there any difference in performance when choosing brand packages for upgrades? A. No. Brand makes no difference. All the brand packages perform equally well. - Q. I have unlocked new cars earned in Underground Mode, but when I Trade In the stats stay the same. I don't understand the point of having a different car but stuck with the same stats. Does the car model really matter? A. Stats are not the same, they are just not shown there. Here's how to view stats for the car you'd like to change to. Select a a car to "Trade In" and press Enter. A performance screen will show up. This is the current performance stats of your current car. Press Enter again and that'll be the stats of the car you're purchasing. Stats change as upgrades are acquired over the course of the game. - Q. What's the best car in the game? A. You have two choices here. The Skyline has speed and control. On the other hand, the RX-7's handling is slightly better and pretty useful to use in Drift races. - Q. Can I import my own music (MP3's) into Need for Speed Underground? A. No, the game does not support imported music files. - Q. Will there be any downloadable content (Paint Jobs, Cars, etc.) for Need for Speed Underground? A. Due to the compatibility between the PS2 console and the PC, there will be no downloadable content available for the game. The reason for this being that both platforms must remain exactly the same in order to be compatible. Any change to one must be made to the other. (source: official site) - Q. During one of the loading screens, it says "Learn how to drift by watching the tutorial videos." How can I access the videos? A. Select Quick Race from the Main Menu, highlight Drag or Drift and press "T". - Q. I have collected Eddie's Nissan Skyline Style Reward. Is there any more? A. Nope. That's the last of the 114 Style Rewards you can unlock in NFS:U. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- X.
