Wining an outrun
Once you have found an opponent to outrun with, get in front of the opponent and get in the lead. Get as far as possible until the distance meter has reached its limit. If the distance meter starts to drop, it indicates that the opponent is catching up. When this happens, do a handbrake skid and turn the car around. Go back the way that you came from. The opponent will follow you as you are the one in lead, but he will take time to catch up, giving you an advantage to win the outrun.

If you are in front of an opponent but cannot seem to lose him, head toward the center of the city ( the area that has the five fountains ). Once there, weave through the fountains. Your opponent will most likely crash into one of the fountains, giving you an easy win. Note: Practice going through the fountains first before you attempt an outrun so you do not lose your money. It is easier to do this in an SUV because it will not reach a high speed before you reach the fountains.

Find an outrun opponent then get right behind him. Draft him or her so that you can get a full tank of NOS, if desired. Then, start to spin out your opponent. You can do this by getting directly next to the car and turning into its back corner. While it is sideways or backwards, you can hit press [Up] to start the outrun. You will have a large head start because your opponent needs to turn around. You can win in under 15 seconds by doing this.

This trick requires that most of the city is unlocked. Get your car and get on the highway that leads around in a oval-like way. Challenge people on the highway for a much better chance of winning, since top speeds are better and there are less turns than the normal roads (so you do not slow down as much).

This trick requires a fast accelerating car. Drive to the airport where you first start the game, Next, find an opponent to race. While racing the opponent, make sure you get into the lead then go onto a little ramp the leads to a road just alongside the airport. After going down that road, you should be at an intersection where you can go left or straight. Take a left turn, then go straight down that road, which should be a parking lot. Once your opponent tries to catch up to you and gets close to the intersection, he will go straight instead of turning. This will give you a large lead and an easy win.

Start race with a full bar of nitrous. Come up from behind your opponent and draft until the nitrous is full, then do a tailspin maneuver. Do this by clipping the back bumper of your opponent, which sends them into the wall or in reverse. They will end up facing the wrong direction, giving you the advantage.

Find an opponent and draft behind them until you have full NOS (for backup, if you have at least a dryshot installed). When it is full, pull up next to them. Wait until you can challenge them, then start it. Then, ram your opponent at the rear tire. Keep pushing and to cause them to wipe out and stop, or crash into a wall. Then just drive off on a long straight road and use your saved up NOS. If you do not win it, you will at least have a very nice lead.

Drive up behind a car that is better than yours and hit it from the back . Then, challenge it and start to drive away. If the car is better than yours, it has better handling and will not take as long to get turned around and chase after you. This will encourage you to go at higher speeds and use more of your nitrous. Do not panic if you are going fast and are not very skilled. Just trust yourself and the car.

Use the following trick if you need to win the outrun modes for the unique parts. There is an easier way than doing it in the streets of the city. Get onto the highway of the main city (in whichever direction desired). Fill up your NOS gauge by doing near misses and avoiding accidents. When it is full and the backup is full (dark blue and light blue), find an opponent on the highway. Do not challenge any opponents if they are behind the concrete barrier that divides the road; only the ones on the side of the highway that you are driving on. Pull up behind them and position yourself for the tailspin maneuver by leaning your front against the opponent's side and back bumper area. Make sure you do not have a lot of your front and side on his back bumper, as you cannot spin him out if your too much on him. Look behind you from the outside view to make sure you are not too much on him (just a little). Then, accept the challenge and immediately spin him out, if you are successful, then hit the NOS. If you are not, pound the NOS anyway. You are still likely to win in about 5 to 15 seconds unless you crash. Do not go off of the highway. Repeat this process until you collect enough money and get the star for the unique item you need.

Original Need For Speed Underground drift races
Win all Street X races to unlock the drift races from the original Need For Speed Underground.

Easy wins
When racing for magazine covers, unique performance or visual parts, it helps if you have both NOS bottles filled. This can let you scab that tenth of a second that you have always missed. It also helps, especially in the more difficult and longer stages, with small time limits, to immediately activate the GPS as soon as you have accepted the challenge.

Tap [NOS] to go faster and conserve NOS. Always put your NOS at little more on power than duration when in dyno testing and tweaking your car. This will make it easier to win races.

Easy drag race wins
Instead of using nitrous by holding it down and wasting it all at once, just keep tapping [NOS] as fast as you can. You will gain 1 to 3 mph with every tap, which is actually increases your speed faster than if you were to hold it down. Also, you will run out of it about one third as fast. Try this under the hardest difficulty setting.

In section 3 when you go to a drag race, take off the stability control. Note: You will be going so fast that you can get totaled.

Easy Street X wins
When you are in Street X, change your car's transmission to manual and use a low gear through most of the race. It will help you cut your speed for better turns.

In order to win Street X, you must take the turns wide at first then sharpen up your turns. This will help you add to your lead, and most likely you will win.

Easier turns in URL races
Notice that before the sharp turns during the URL races, there are a set of numbers that countdown to 1. Follow those numbers to perfect your sharp turn into a groove to speed through faster. Keep accelerating until you reach "1", then slam on the brakes and turn. Once perfected, this can help you get through the turns with more speed.

In URL races, the CPU will try to spin you a lot. Whenever your car slides to an 30 to 60 degree angle, use your NOS and turn.

Some turns in URL races do not require brakes. Notice that the angles of some of the turns are kind of rounded. If you have the speed, you could go right into the wall and make the turn. As long as you are going about 130 mph and hit these certain corners, you will only go down to 100 mph or so. You have to experiment with the turns. Sometimes you will go too fast and flip, and other times you will fly through the turns going 100 mph while the CPU cars slow down, giving you some cushion time. Remember, you must get up against the wall for this trick to work.

In the first few laps, you will most likely be behind someone. When you are going on a turn, they will probably slow down. This is where you can turn the tables on the entire race. Do not slow down. Instead, keep going and use him as a wall to get the inside of the turn without applying the brake. As a bonus you may also get him to stop in an attempt to shake you, but this will only result in getting you a good lead. Note: You must make sure he does not ram you into the wall.

In the Underground Racing League, when you get to a corner, do not go in at full speed. If the turn is at 45 degrees or under, you have a chance of going in and just clipping the outside wall. However when you start the race, stay in the back and do not try to get to first place immediately. Make sure you stay fairly close to the cars in front. When you reach the corner, floor the accelerator and put in full throttle. If done quick enough, you should see the cars about to turn the corner. At this point you should just be close enough to clip the rear left or right bumper. Because the CPU cars slow down on the corner, you do not necessarily need to. When you go into it, the car in front will act as a guide around the corner. Go round the apex of the corner and slowly release the Analog-stick, and keep on the accelerator out of the corner to get into third, second, or first place.

If your using a very fast car with manual transmission, you do not need to brake when you get to a 90 degree corner. For example, if you are in fourth gear and are doing about 200 kph, just shift down to second gear. This will lower the speed to about 100 kph, then turn. Note: Tune your suspension so that your car does not slide easily, which will lower your speed even more unnecessarily.

On the airport courses for the URL races, after the long straightaways or any turn, do not use the brake. Drive along the wall and let the outside boundary do the turning for you.

Going off jumps in URL races
Start driving slow to get in fourth place. Then, drive up in front of the third, second and first place cars to get extra points for nitro. You can use it when you are getting close to the four lights hanging on the bar. You will go off the jump and see a short intermission sequence of your car going off the jump.

URL parts
The best way to tell how many parts there is to a URL is the number of laps. Three laps indicates three parts of one URL. Four laps are only two parts, and five or six laps is only one run, but the CPU is moderately harder to race.

Finding hidden shops
Look at road signs around the city. They often have colored shapes (yellow triangles, etc.) to guide the way to the shops. Also, look for street-lights casting a colored glow. This indicates that there is a shop very close.

Finding more races
If you cannot find any more races on your map, then you need to find all the hidden shops in the city. After you find all the shops, you will be asked to be on another DVD cover. Follow the star to get to the next level. Note: Use the shops map featured below.

If you cannot find any more races on the map, make your visual rating on your car at least six stars or more. After you are done with the rating , Rachel will tell you about a photograph to take. Then after the picture you must do the URL. More races will appear. You will also unlock level 3 parts if you find the shops.

Easy NOS recovery
To get lots of NOS easily, when you are standing still hold hand brake ([R]). Next, hold the gas then hold [Left] or [Right]. You should spin around and create smoke. This should give you 300 points instantly to recover turbo boost

Get on the highway and drive in reverse. After a few seconds you should begin racking up points on the right side of your screen. These points will give you extra NOS. Note: Crashing into traffic at high speeds will reduce your NOS.

When you are on the ground, activate hydros and keep flicking the Analog-stick [Left] repeatedly to get lots of points for filling your NOS bar. You can also do about three donuts, then wait and do another three donuts.

Use the following trick to get extra NOS at the beginning of a race. When the girls are up front waving their hands, tap [NOS] to perform a "spray show". This should give you a little extra NOS.

If you run out of NOS in free roam mode, press [Start] and select "Jump To Garage". As soon as you can, exit garage mode and you should have full NOS. Note: This only fills up the first tank.

Go to any shop. Enter the shop, then leave it. You will have a full tank of NOS.

Get on a road and keep doing 360 degree turns using the handbrake. This will give you 400 points and will add to your NOS. You can repeat this another two times.

By driving your car backwards (without hitting any cars or walls) you can fully refuel both of your NOS tanks.

If you are going really fast or in slow motion, press [A] repeatedly and move the [Analog-stick Up] and [Down]. When you come out of slow motion you will have the maximum NOS, with two full bottles.

Enter the freeway and keep driving in reverse until the score reaches about 3000.

You can recover NOS by doing one of the following things.

Sprayshow: Purge your nitrous
Traffic Hit: Penalty from hitting traffic.
Lead Lap: Lead a lap in the race.
Clean Section: Make it through an entire race section without hitting anything.
Clean Lap: Make it through an entire lap without hitting anything.
Shortcut: Take a shortcut.
Avoid Accident: Almost get in a wreck with another car.
360: Perform a 360 or a doughnut while driving.
Best Lap: Score a best lap during a race.
Head Start: Get off the starting line the quickest.
J Turn: Drive in reverse and swing the car around to drive away forwards.
Burnout: Spin the tires.
Leap Frog: Jump your car over a traffic accident.
Hydro Bounce: Bounce your car using level 3 hydraulics.
NOS purge and hydraulic use while driving
Go to any shop. Drive under the entrance projector and bring up all sides of car or bounce any desired side. Then, purge your NOS and while still holding [NOS], press [Up] to enter the shop. When it shows your car entering the shop, you will be purging and bouncing while driving.

Easy money
Collecting the little information logos around the city gives you money. You will receive $25 for each one.

As soon as you start the game, ignore Rachel's request to go to the car lot. Instead, try to collect as many information icons as possible. This will give you that little extra money to start modding your car, and will save time as you do not have to look for them in your initially slow car. Also, enter the two races shown on your GPS (circuit and sprint races). Going in these two races will give you at least 500 points in the bank. You should receive a message to get to the car lot now. Do so, and continue playing the game.

Listen to the other racers that periodically talk to you. They will say a general location in the city where you can find hidden races not shown on the map that are worth $850 instead of the usual $300.

In the career mode menu, go to the world map. Select any race that has not been completed in any stage. Once the race has started, pause game play and restart. After you have won the race, a screen will appear showing you how many reputation points and how much bank you have won. You will then go to the menu that asks if you want to return to explore mode, restart, etc. When this appears choose "Return To Main Menu". You do not have to save the game. Then, just go back into the career menu and select the "World Map" option again. Choose another race that has not been completed and start it. If done correctly, all of the races in the world map will be against three Toyota Corollas or a mixture of Hummers, Escalades and Navigators. If you restart these races, you will always get money if you win.

When you start with Rachel's car, do not take it back immediately. Instead, do some outruns and races to get money. You will then have a boost of money when you get your own car.

In career mode, eventually you will get sponsored and there will be purple crosses on the map. If you go to them, they are usually a sponsored circuit race. If you win them, you will get $900.

Enter career mode and go down to the Burger King and Best Buy area. Drive around and look for a stone wall and alley by the town shops. Go into the alley and turn sharply to the right. There will be a parking lot where an opponent will be sitting. He will not be appear on your navigation map, nor will you. You can challenge this opponent to an easy outrun. He will always drive towards the stadium. After you beat him, return to the parking lot where two red info messages will appear. Get them for $25 each. After you collect them, go into a garage, shop, etc., and save the game. Then, go back to the parking lot. Five green money bags will be there. Collect them, jump to the garage (on the main menu screen) and return for five more. This will get you money much easier than racing.

You can earn big money in stage 5. Go to garage in any stage of career mode and go to the world map. You can participate in races from previous stages. If you race one, pause game play and restart the race. You will get a bigger bank than if you had waited until you were done with all the stages (up to $31,00 in stage 5).

Once you have completed the game and are taking a long time to get money, go to your garage and access the world map. Find events that you have not completed. The races that are not completed may have money waiting once you win the race.

Use the following trick to get more money for winning a race. Watch for races that are not marked on the map. They give you more money for winning than a regular race.

Taking a nice photo shoot
Once you are in the photo shoot area, press [X], hold your hand brake ([R]), then rev the engine and press either [Left] or [Right]. The car should do donuts. While it is doing this, take the photo. This will give a smoky look on your wheels in the picture.

Drift mode
In drift mode, set your car up using the following this basic structure. Tune the ECU to have as much torque as you can get in the early gears. Make all of the suspension settings as hard as possible to eliminate shock travel. This will help get the back end out. Turn the tire grip to weak. Also, make the cars acceleration as quick as possible. For the toe settings, lower it all the way. Make the aero settings as weak as possible. Set the brake bias towards rear. By doing this, you will greatly increase your score, especially on the downhill. On the straight-aways you can do Choku-Doris (go from side to side) to rack up big points. You can then link them to power over-steer drifts, which is when you will use the torque and acceleration to lose traction in the back tires, then use carefully timed throttle control to get around the corner as sideways as possible. This will help your drifts scores get as high as possible. Throttle control is very important -- do not get discouraged if you spin out a lot. Note: This has not been attempted on FF or AWD cars. FF and AWD cars will most likely have a softer suspension setting but everything else would probably remain the same. FF and AWD cars also need the hand brake to initiate drifts more than a FR car would.

Easy style points
Driving in reverse will give you style points. The longer you drive in reverse, the more points you will receive.

To do this, you will need at least level 1 hydraulics. Drive up against a wall and activate your hydraulics. Then, press the gas and stay up against the wall. You may need to turn sometimes to keep it straight. You should start to get points on the right side of your screen.

Get a set of hydraulics (level 2 recommended). Come to a complete stop then hold the hand brake. Keep on pressing Analog-stick [Left] and [Right] or [Up] and [Down] and your points should keep on increasing.

Easy drift points
Some of the downhill drift races have houses with looping drive ways that you can drive in. Drifting in these driveways gets a lot more points than on the street because you are so far off the road and are not hitting a wall.

Go into Quick Race mode and select the Subaru Impreza with all Extreme or Level 3 performance parts. You may style the visual as desired, Then, choose Drift Track 6 and 10 laps with easy opponents. Drive through the middle of the track. When you are just before a corner, press the handbrake. Release it after you have slightly slid. Your car will soon almost spin and will drift through easily. Continue through the rest of the track by swerving on the straights and using the handbrake properly on the corners. You can get about 50,000 to 500,000 drift points at the end of the race.

Final race
The final race is against Caleb (the man that tells Nikki to win, then she loses and joins your team) on a 4.5 mile track and 5 laps. However, he only gets up to about 130 mph.

Get bank for races
There are five stages, and as you complete each of them you can go back and repeat the races again. You may even find that there are some races you missed. These are the ones that you want to race. When you go to these, you are not supposed to get anything for them but you can change that. To access these races, go to your garage, then your world map, and select a race. When the race begins, pause game play and restart the race. Notice that there is an option to return to world map, however after you restart it will not be there. You can now race and get bank for it.

After you buy level 1, 2, or 3 hydraulics, come to a complete stop and hold [R]. Use the [Analog stick] to move up, down, left, or right. The longer you move back and forth, the more points you will get.

To activate your hydraulics, you hold the gas, the brake, and the hand brake. While holding those down, move the Analog-stick in the direction which you want the car to move.

Install hydraulics level 2. Kiss the wall, then use your hydraulics (move the [Analog-stick Up] and [Down] quickly). Sooner or later, the car will jump, even making flips and 360s.

Rear wheel drive wheelie
This trick requires a real wheel drive car with level 3 hydraulics. Start with your car in neutral. Double tap then hold the [R] to engage the hydraulics. Hold [Analog-stick Up] to begin bouncing the front end of the car. In mid-bounce, release [R], but keep holding the [Analog-stick Up]. The car will keep bouncing. Press the [C-stick] [Forward] to rev up the engine, then shift into first gear, while still holding [Forward] on both of the Analog-stick and [C-stick]. Your next hydraulic bounce will be delayed in the air while the car does a rolling burnout, causing your car to do a wheelie. This is great for showing off for the cover shoots of magazines.

This trick requires level 3 hydraulics. Tap [A]x2, then hold [A]. Press [Analog-stick Forward] while still holding [A]. Release [A] while holding [Analog-stick Forward]. Release the Analog-stick and the car should still be bouncing on its front wheels. If so, hold the [R] to accelerate and the car should pop a wheelie for about 10 to 15 feet.

Lift tire off ground
To get a left rear tire off the ground, go to "Customize Car" and put hydraulics on the Pontiac GTO. Go to free ride mode and put the rear of the car off the ground with the hydraulics. Then, push the gas and hit the brakes. The left rear of the car will comes off the ground. Note: You must have the level 2 brakes.

Get any car with level 2 or 3 hydraulics. Lift any side and the front. Start doing donuts in the opposite direction. For example, if the left side tires are lifted, then do an donut to the right, and vice versa. You should see the left or right rear tire lift off the ground. It will be like that for the entire time that you are doing the donut.

Get car on either side of the wheels
This trick requires all of the level 2 upgrades, and hydraulics upgrade level 2. Get the hydraulics to either side of the car, and only that one side. Then, do a donut to the right if the left side of the car is lifted and vice versa. This only happens for a moment.

To catwalk a car, you must have stage three hydraulics and have stage 3 performance parts. Try using a Mazda RX-8 or a Ford Mustang. To start your catwalk, bounce the front of your car then release the emergency brake but continue to hold [Forward]. Then hit the gas at the top of the bounce. You car should catwalk. Note: This will now work with AWD and FWD cars.

Get any car and put level 3 hydraulics on it. Put on level 3 brakes. You can also use all level 3 engine parts to make it go higher. First, put the rear end up. Then, bounce the back. Next, go about 17 mph (or faster) and hit the brake. If done correctly, you could have the entire back end of the car straight up.

Two wheel donut
Use an RX-7 with level 3 hydraulics. Put the right side up all the way, but keep the left side down. Get the left side bouncing. Then, steer left the entire time. At first you need to get the speed in the turn up to 20 mph for about three seconds. When on two wheels, keep it at 15 mph to stay in a nice donut on two wheels. It can also be done the other way-- just put the left up instead of the right.

Front end donut
Install level 3 hydraulics and bounce the back end of your car. Then, begin to do a donut. After you do about three donuts you will start to do them on your front two tires.

Mustang GT: Avoid spins
In career mode when you unlock The Mustang GT, be careful when you put in the top engine with the top ECU. When going fast, watch out for sharp turns. You might spin out in a race; try to work on your handling.

Driving move
Get on a highway of some kind at about 110 mph. When traffic is clear, hold [R] + [Left] until your car is spun at a 90 degree angle. Then, release the buttons (make sure your car is still spinning) then hold [B]. You will be driving in reverse. When you are driving, do a J-Turn (turn back around to the front when in reverse). Then, accelerate to finish the move.

Fast career car
Use the following trick to create an extremely fast and high starred car quickly. When you start career mode, choose a Peugeot 106. Try not to get any upgrades unless you need them. Keep winning races and playing through the game until you unlock the Toyota Celica This can be made into the fastest car in the game. Get it immediately when it is unlocked. This should be sometime in level 2. Play through the game, making sure to take the opportunity to do of any outruns. This will unlock unique upgrades. When you unlock the unique part, you will have to go to a star on the map first. The game will tell you to go to a certain shop, depending on what the unique is. The first one is a unique hood. You must win four outruns for it. Then in stage 3, you need will need three outrun wins for a unique engine, transmission, or tire set. Choose the engine. For unique rims , get six wins in stage 3. The spoilers require four wins on stage 4. The vinyls require six wins on stage 4. The ECU, turbo or brakes require nine wins on stage 4. Select the ECU. The NOS, weight or suspension uniques require six wins on stage 5. Select NOS for an extra long boost. Finally, the wide body kits uniques require eleven wins on stage 5. Put all of these on your Celica, and it will be the fastest car in the game. Note: Do not forget to install the performance upgrades up to level 3.

Recommended cars
The best car is the Toyota Celica. When you unlock everything. put all the parts on it.

One of the best cars in the game is the Toyota Corolla. Once you obtain all level three performance upgrades, you can go online and sup it up . Add whatever desired, including all level three upgrades then go to tuning and set it to drag so that it can take off the line quicker. Then, lower the suspension to the lowest setting. You should now have a car that can beat Celicas and Skylines, and will take off the line faster.

After unlocking all level three performance parts, get a Nissan 240SX and put all of the performance parts on it. If you go online with this car (with performance parts on the car) and get mostly perfect shifts during a drag, you should be able to beat all other car (excluding other 240SX's). If you want to go even faster, you will have to edit the settings of your car on the dyno run.

To get a fast Nissan Skyline that goes up to 227 to -228 on the airport freeway drag race, install all performance parts except for the six speed transmission. If you install the six speed transmission, you will get better acceleration but less top speed.

The fastest car in the game is the Acura Rsx with level three upgrades. The top speed is 240 mph; with unique you can it up tp 247 mph. When you go to the dyno, it will not say that, but it will be that fast on the road.

At the beginning of your career, pick the Mazda Miata but do not get any upgrades. When you can get the Hyundai Tiburon, trade it in. It can be the fastest car in the game. Upgrade it. When you can get an SUV, get the Cadillac Escalade.

The fastest career car is the Hyundai Tiburon, if you put all level 3s and uniques and fine tune it.

The recommended car for an entire career is the Nissan 240SX. Unlock all level 3 performance add them to it. Then, go to the dyno and tune it as follows. First. go to the suspension and tune everything its highest. Then, go to the drive train and also put everything at the highest. Next, go to aerodynamics and do the same. Next, go to tires and brakes and also put everything to the highest. Go to ECU and do the first dot. Make it the highest, then with the next, also make that the highest. Then, do the same to the rest. However, you cannot do it twice. Go to turbo and do the same to turbo that you did to the ECU. Finally, go to nitrous and set it at its maximum. Your car will be unstoppable as long as you start with a perfect shift and do the same with the rest. Do the dyno test again. You should see much improvement.

The best choices for your career car lineup are the Mustang, Skyline, Celica, RX-7, and Supra.

For the Drag or Straight Sprint course, use the Pontiac GTO. For Drift, Street X, Tight Cornered circuit, Sprint, and the URL, use the Mazda Miata MX-5. Use tuning adjustments (level 3 upgrades) for circuit, sprint and drag. ECU: High as possible at 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 revs; Turbo: High as possible at 7, 8, 9 revs; Nitrous: 3-4 seconds; Suspension: Low as possible (ride height) and everything else high as possible; Tires: High grip on both, break balance at the middle; Transmission: Small tracks, tight corners: Full acceleration. Drag: All top speed.

The best car you can get is the Mazda Miata MX-5. With all level 3 performance parts, the cars stats are the best ones. The Honda Civic is also a good car with level 3 performance parts.

The best drift car is the Toyota Corolla (AE86 Trueno). If you want to make it look like the Initial D AE86, paint it white, then put on stock carbon fiber bodykits. To make it the best drifter in the game, use level 3 ECU, transmission, suspension, brakes, and turbo.

The best car to start with is the Honda Civic. Once it starts getting difficult to win races with that car, use the Hyundai Tiburon. You can use it for the rest of the game. It is the best way to win because your car will always be good enough to max out your reputation points on each race.

The best cars in this game are Nissan Skyine and Ford Mustang. If you use the correct visual and performance parts they will be the ultimate exotic cars. Make sure the car has the level 3 performance upgrades. For the Skyline, take the visual upgrades but do not install the last parts. Check to see if it is good for the car.

More horsepower and torque
To add more horsepower and torque, go to "Customize", then tune a car up to level 3 parts. Then, go to "Performance Tune/Dyno". Choose for example, "Drag", then go to "Tune Settings". Go to "ECU" and set it so that from 5 rpm to 9 rpm or whatever is the most the maximum amount of torque you can add. Do the same for "Turbo". Then. go to "Nitrous" and set the duration to 4 seconds. This will add both torque and horsepower to your ride.

Carbon fiber the entire car
Carbon your body kit, then put a wide body kit on it. The entire wide body will be carbon fiber. This will also give you a wider wheel base and should result in a lighter car.

Get to top speed faster
To get to your top speed faster, go into your garage then go to "Tune up/Dyno". After that, go to "Circuit" and select the ECU. Make levels 3, 4, and 5 as low as possible; with 3 the lowest. Do a dyno run and look at your speed. Compare this to the first time you did it. It should increase a lot, helping in all your races.

Jump off a car
To jump off a car's hood, you must first jump off an uphill road the other way that the car is traveling. Use your NOS, get some air, and when the car approaches, get on its hood, off its windshield, then into the air.

Take a Nissan Skyline, Ford Mustang or anything else with the same body shape. Put on any desired body parts, apart from "CF" items. Then, set everything that can have its color changed to a light gold. Leave it like that with no vinyls or decals and cruise the city.

Start a cruise
To start a cruise, find an Outrun opponent on the highway. Do not start the Outrun. Instead, just drive along with him or her and stay on the same road. After about two or three minutes, another car will join you. Eventually you will end up cruising with four cars. You must go the same way as the other drivers, as they will not follow you due to the CPU's AI.

Glitch: Car jump
Buy hydraulics, then go up to a wall. Note: This will not work on all walls. Stop and use the hydraulics. Keep doing it until your car flies into the air.

Get hydraulics on your car; the higher level the better. Drive straight into a building, then activate your hydraulics. Keep activating them at a high rate of speed. If done correctly, you will be shot up into the air.

Glitch: Drive through wall
On one of the races in Jackson Heights, where part of it is near the entrance, if you are near the finish line and the red walls are on your left, drive against the wall. If you hold the Analog-stick [Right] enough, you should be able to go through the wall and drive anywhere.

Glitch: Drive in magazine
Once you do very good in a race or get far in the game, you can take a picture for a magazine. When you are at the screen to take the picture, go to "Control Car". Once there, press [A] + [B] until the camera angle is at the back of your car. Then, press [B] and take the picture. It will show your car in the magazine. When you are there, you can drive around inside the magazine.

Glitch: Jump on parking lot
When you have hydraulics in story mode, go to the City Core Airport. Once there, go to the airport parking lot entrance. The entrance and exit are blocked off by a metal gate. Push against it as much as possible. Press [X] and move [Analog-stick Up] and [Down]. This will activate the hydraulics, which will cause your car to jump high enough to land on top of the first or second floor of parking lot. Note: Your story mode car must be light (for example, a Mazda Miata).

Glitch: Hydraulic points
Land on the roof of your car during an accident. When it enters slow motion, activate your hydraulics and watch the points rack up. It is possible to get 2,000 points by doing this.

Glitch: Unlimited NOS purge
When you purge the NOS, hold [X] and press [Start], then press [B]. This will make your NOS purge stay as long as desired.

Glitch: Map error
Drive in Beacon Hill at the area where it is a big out of the way loop, where there is a small circle that is connected to the road. This circle has a big monument in the middle. The map shows that the small circle is on one section of the offset area, but it is actually on the other end of the area.

Glitch: SUV race
When you are racing with an SUV, one SUV race is in the middle of the ocean and you cannot get to it.

Glitch: All spoilers
When starting a new game, begin with the Peugeot 106. When the "Spoiler" option is released for sale, buy any of the cheap ones, then go to your garage. Select the "Change Parts" option and choose "Body". Then select "Spoilers". If done correctly you should immediately have every spoiler in the game.

Glitch: All side mirrors
After unlocking the following cars, buy the stage one side mirrors: Audi TT, Cadillac Escalade, and Lincoln Navigator. Then, return to garage. Choose "Body" and select "Side Mirrors". If done correctly, you should have every side mirror in the game.
