Cheats in championship mode
When you unlock any of the cheats, they normally cannot
be used to win championship mode. However, there is a way around
this. Simply use the cheat to come in first until the last race.
Then, go to the main menu and disable the cheat. You will have
all the medals, and all you have to do is win the last race.
At the countdown, when the view is at the back of your
car, hold [X]. Then, tap [Square] while holding [X]
and smoke should start coming out of your tires. Keep holding
[X]. A split second before "GO!" appears, release
[X] and immediately press it again. This should give you
Immediately before the countdown ends at beginning of a race,
quickly press the brake, then the gas. You should take off with
a sudden burst off energy as soon as the race begins, and be ahead
of everybody else.
Hold [Brake], then press [Gas] to cause your tires to
peel out. When "One" appears at the top of the screen,
release [Gas] and immediately press it again when "Go!"
appears. If done correctly, you will get a boost that will almost
always put you in front of the other vehicles.
At the beginning of any race, pursuit or crash session, before
it race starts, at the countdown, hold [Gas] ([X]),
then hold [Brake] ([Square])briefly for about half second.
Half a second before the counter reaches zero, release [Gas]
and quickly press it again. You will start with a boost.
During the countdown, hold [X] then press [Square] and
smoke will start to appear. Just before it says "Go!",
release [Square] and [X], then quickly press [X].
You will boost ahead and get an advantage.
Spin your tires until the countdown is halfway through "1"
and release the gas. Immediately after you release the gas, press
[X] again. This gives you a boost start.
If you are not at the pole position, try to drive into
the rear end of an opponent. He will lose control for a moment
and you can pass.
Never follow the opponents in front of you. Almost always, there
is a faster route even if it is takes sharper bends.
Powerful boosts in Crash Zones
This trick works in one player and two player modes.
When you are doing the Crash Zones, at the start immediately hold
[R1] for a boost. After a few seconds, press it again. This
should give you more boost, which results in a faster speed and
better crashes. Repeat this as many times as desired.
When you are doing Crash Zone 7 "Whip Up A Storm Of Metal
And Glass", go to the right onto the dirt. You can have a
wider angle to turn left at the intersection, and therefore have
more speed for a greater crash.
You can get a boost easier by doing drifts. However
press [Square], drift, then keep tapping [Square] for
a better chance of not crashing.
Drive on the wrong side of the road to receive a boost faster.
If your opponent is in the wrong lane, follow him, but not to
closely. This allows him to pass the traffic for you. Also, if
he hits someone you can get out of he way if you are not too close.
This is unlikely however, as the CPU follows the cars through
a safer route. As long as you do not disturb him he will not hit
anything. This will give you a faster and safer boost.
When you get a full boost meter, you can gain and use boost a
lot faster by tapping [X] ("Boost") button instead of
holding it down and draining your boost all the way.
When doing the tire burn, once you go around the turn
and have a boost, press [R1]. You will speed up and take
the turn very fast. Also, if you get a perfect lap you will automatically
get a boost.
If you are on a course that has a lot of bumps, do
not drive the trucks, 1970's car, stock car, hotrod, or gangster.
The best car for this are the Japanese muscle or the student driver
Drive on the wrong side of the road until your turbo
(NOS) tank or bar is full.
Easy pursuit wins
Try to get as close to the vehicle as you can when
you have turbo. Then, use it and get in front of the car. Stay
in front of it. It will try to get past you. When this happens,
keep hitting it as it tries to pass.
In the pursuit modes, you can win the race immediately if you
force the other car into a head-on collision with traffic -- this
will stop them quite nicely.
Easy money in crash mode
When you are about to hit the car you think will make
the biggest crash, use the turbo and drive towards that car. Hit
your brakes and do a power slide into the car. This should put
you into the air. Note: This will not work on trucks.
For easy money in Crash Course 6, select a car that catches air
easily (such as the SUV). Start with a boost and burn out of the
tunnel. Go all the way to the left and hit that car.
Easy gold medals in crash mode
Learn which car to crash into first, then restart,
do a boost start, then burn into it.
Avoid loss of perfect record
When trying to achieve all gold medals in championship
mode, if you fail to win one of the races, reset the PlayStation2
before it auto-saves. You can then choose to continue the championship
and restart at the race you failed to win, without having to replay
(and win) all the previous races.
When competing in multi-race championships, it is often frustrating
when you get a gold in the first race but fail the next. To avoid
this, choose to return to the main menu after a successful race.
Go to the options, select "Save/Load", and save to a
backup profile slot. Reload your original profile. Attempt the
race, and if you succeed, again save to a backup profile and load
your original profile again. If you fail, load the backup profile.
