Need for Speed Carbon Hints

  • Win Speedtrap Races

    Whenever you get a speedtrap race use Neville to block your opponents before the speedtrap because this will stop the cars, causing them to have a lower total than you. But it has to be done right!
    Submitted by Ash
  • Bonus Cars

    Complete career mode with any car class to unlock 5 bonus cars, including the Audi Quattro Le Mans Racing car
    Submitted by allan4giobana
  • Muscle Car Flip

    When you are driving an old muscle car, go as fast as you can in reverse, turn the steering wheel to one side full lock while giving the car full throttle in 1st gear. The car will flip over sideways and land on its tires perfectly. This is a cool trick to show off with. Kinda pointless though.

  • Stupid Cops

    Entry location: Walls in Free Roam
    When the map is blinking red, the cops are chasing you but haven't found you yet. So before they find you back up to a wall and just sit there - even if the cop is right there they wont catch you or see you. Eventually they will drive away.
    Submitted by Taylor Welch
  • Easy Money

    Entry location: In Career Mode
    When you get a crew member like Niki that give you 10% off each car you buy, go buy a car. Then go to your safe house and go look at the car that you bought and the value of the car will be more than you bought it for. So when you sell it you will get money from that. Keep doing that the more money you get.

  • Automatic Performance Maxing

    Go to the performance shop, press square and look in your shopping cart and every item will be as high as possible! (it works really well!)

  • Canyon Duels

    Entry location: Canyon Duels
    When you go against an opposition on a canyon duel, try to get ahead of him. If you can then try and not let them pass for 10 secs. If you succeed, you will not have to do the second part of the duel. But remember, if you collide with your opposition, the computer takes 5,000 points off your score.
    Submitted by FrogMan
  • Losing Heat Fast

    Entry location: In Carrer Mode
    To lose your heat quick use this hint. Make sure you have autosave on. Turn off your ps2 and then turn it back on. You should see you did not lose that race or your settings.

  • Beat Darius

    Although Darius may seem hard to beat, anyone can own him if they time it right. First, get a tuner car. Second, make sure it's performance is maxed out. Third, bear all the races before Darius's Canyon Duel. When you finally get there, hold out until you're about 60 - 70% into the race. After you pass the 2 hairpins, there will be a road that slightly crooks to the left. After this, there will be a wide left turn that doesn't have a breakable wall. Darius will brake and take the inside of this corner. You should take this opportunity to gain speed, drive on the corner's outside lane, and pass him up. Hold out for 10 more seconds and you'll win the race in the 1st leg!

    NOTE: This trick doesn't work every single time. I had to do it over for about 5 times before I actually passed him up. If you don't get it the first time, don't worry, just restart until you can get it.

  • Spikestrips Won't Stop You

    Entry location: Main Menu
    Before the cops start to put down spikestrips, put down this cheat at the main menu: Left, Up, Left, Down, Left, Down, Right, X for Unlimited Nitrous. Just hold the NOS button after you hit the spikestrip.
    Submitted by Gallardo
  • Escape from the Pigs

    When the cops are searching for you, hold down L1 and R1 at the same time. They will think you're one of the normal law-abiding cars and pass you.
    Submitted by sporn
  • Beating Darius

    This is a simple hint that enables you to easily beat Darius. (Works best with muscle cars.) As soon as the race starts floor it. When coming up on the first turn get on the inside of him and wait until he hits the brakes and then tap'em a couple of times. Don't be afraid to hit Darius. As soon as your halfway straight out of the turn, nail it and try to hold him off for 10 seconds.


    NOTE: Be sure to max out your car and have patients; cause it wont work every time.
    Submitted by P Gangsta
  • Canyon Crashes

    When you are in a canyon duel and are following Kenji, Wolf, Angie, or Darius just push them off the road and you will win automatically. You have to have patience though because they will try to stop.
    Submitted by Hockeyfreek
  • Fastest and Best Car

    First go to the car lot. If you have unlocked it, buy the Lamborghini Mercilago. It is the fastest car in the game, and is the best for everything except drifts. The best car for drifts that is really fast is the Lamborghini Gallarado. It has better handling than the Mercilago
    Submitted by the speed demon2
  • How To Beat Darius

    Buy a Chevrolet corvette Z06 and accelerate as soon as you start the canyon race. You'll pass him in about 5-15 secs. Maintain your lead for 10secs and you finished.
