Hint: Regaining control

  • All platforms
  • code
When approaching a corner at top speed, quickly assess whether or not you can get through it cleanly as fast as possible and without touching the inside or outside barriers. If you find yourself drifting (or worse, careening out of control) toward a barrier, turn on your Speedbreaker in order to regain control via increased handling and traction. During this period of slowed time, straighten out your car and put it back into an ideal racing line. Once you are straight and driving in the correct direction, quickly turn off Speedbreaker and hit the Nitrous hard to rip out of the remainder of the corner. Command Station.

Hint: Respawning

  • All platforms
  • code
If you crash your car do not force it to respawn. Instead, let the game reset your car. You will then be invulnerable and able to get away from the cops if you are in a very tight spot. StrykerGeno.

Hint: Avoiding SUVs

  • All platforms
  • code
Have a good car and a good Nitro booster. Whenever you see an SUV coming at you, hit your nitrous and ram him head on. He should fly backward and explode, giving you $10,000. Sqeth28.

Hint: Blacklist cars

  • All platforms
  • code
If you win the pinkslips to a Blacklist car, you may want to use the Blacklist car as your own and make the necessary upgrades to performance, as most of the upgrades will have been already made by the Blacklist owner. You do not need to spend too much money to increase the performance, handling, etc. Sometimes these cars will have upgrades that have not been unlocked yet, but most of these are usually visual. Only do this if the vehicle you have won has better attributes than the one you are currently driving in its standard mode. You can check this out in the car shop. Keep about three to five good quick cars in your safehouse. Miggs.

Hint: Accelerate faster

  • All platforms
  • code
Press A + C-stick Forward to accelerate even faster than normal. Mark Osborne.

Hint: Car test

  • All platforms
  • code
If you are unsure which car is the best to use when upgraded, you can upgrade all the cars that are unlocked for free in the main menu.-Go to "My Cars", choose a car that is available, and upgrade it with the parts that are available. By doing this, you will not waste all your money in career mode. Miggs.

Hint: Better car performance

  • All platforms
  • code
After getting your car upgraded with engines, suspension, brakes, etc., press Start and go to "Performance Tuning". For better handling for the Lamborghini, Porsche, Corvette, and Viper, set the "Height" of you car to "-1". If you need more gripping power either take the "Height" to "-2" or set the "Aerodynamics" to "+1". If you go overboard with the performance tuning options (anything past "+3" or "-3"), the car will actually handle worse. Command Station.

Hint: Lowering Heal levels

  • All platforms
  • code
To lower the Heat from your car, go to a Stop Shop and go in. Then, change the color of your car. Leave and do not move. Press Up to go back in and change the car back to its original color. Your Heat will be lower by 1. Do this multiple times to reach condition 1 again. Ivan Diaz.
