in a race
If you are in a race with someone in a club, but you think the track is too long, just exit until you get to the menu which shows your rank in the club and challenge over again. This may make your track longer but can also make it shorter. You can do this all the time, there will always be a new track.
Developer Tip - Motorbike
On a motorbike, pushing the Left Stick forward allows you to increase top speed.
But take care to release the stick before using the brakes...
Developer Tip - Private Multiplayer
Wanting to play multiplayer race with friends only? Check the "Private session"
option when you host the game. Once in the race lobby, use the Xbox Live dashboard
to invite friends to a game. They'll join you in the lobby.
Developer Tip - Draft Force
Draft force is implemented in TDU. It is really useful to overtake an opponent.
Developer Tip - Manual Transmission
Using Manual Transmission allows you to perform better.
Developer Tip - Free-ride GPS
In the extra challenges (Top Models, Hitchickers, Transporter and Convoy),
and in free-ride as well, your GPS doesn't show you the quickest path to your
destination. It shows you the "legal" path according to the Highway Code. You
can forget the law and find a shorter path yourself ...

Developer Tip - Online Play
When you play offline, you'll see cops and AIs in freeride. If you play online, cops won't be there and AIs are replaced by real players. If you are online but want to freeride alone with AIs and cops, go to Options, select Online, and disable "Allow online interactions."
Developer Tip - Big Cars at Start
If you want to see big cars from the start, try the convoy missions or the car rentals.
