Crashing is one of the things that can turn a great race, into a disaster.
Walls, barriers, barricades, borders... Whatever you call them, they always get in the way.
-Well, when turning corners at high speed in a vehicle with low grip, it\'s best to brake and turn the corner. More times than not, you will scrape against the wall, so, it will be noisy, but it works.
-When trying to turn a corner at high speed in a car with good grip, the brakes won\'t help much here. What is best is to lay off the \"A\" button while turning. Hitting the brakes can help a little here, but it will more than likely make you spin out and loose some control...
-Beware of oncoming traffic. It will make you crash into an oncoming car it can make you loose up to 2000 dollars. The only absolute 100% way to prevent this is to reach the red level of NOS and you\'ll just fly strait through them.
One of the key elements to winning races with a lot of money and efficiency, is boosting.
-When the count down starts at the beginning of a race, press the boost button (R) when it hits one to get a good blue colored boost. Press R again, and you'll go even faster with a yellow boost, and then again with a red boost to go your car's fastest speed.
-It's a good idea not to use boost around corners because you will loose your car's grip no matter how high it is. So, I recommend that you hit the brakes slightly while turning, and when you come around the corner, boost up to red.
-To make the most of each boost level, it's best to hit the boost once and wait for a few seconds, and then repeat two more times. Doing so will prolong your boost for maximum speed and distance.
-When you usually go on a ramp or a hill that makes your car jump, you get 10 dollars. To get more money, boost the second you take off from the ramp and you'll get more than 10 dollars.
-The last tip for boosting is to always save it for long strait-a-ways, and for regaining speed out of corners.
if you find your lagging behind in a race and you're out of boost and there's no nos tanks around then all you have to do is get a "nice drift" IT'S THAT EASY! it gets back a little bit of boost but if you do it enough it can really help!!!
-In this game, you get money for creating havoc while you drive. One of the best ways is to make your opponents crash when the race starts. First, get a boost when the countdown hits one, and crash as much racers as possible that are lined up in front of you. You can score around 500 dollars per racer you take out.
-Occasionally, 5-0 will be on your tail trying to make you crash. Well, one of the best ways to shake them and get them of your tail is to do the same to them. When a cop patrol car or bike pulls up next to you, nudge to the nearest wall/corner to take him out for a 1000 dollars. Be careful though, if a cop is able to make you crash you will lose 2000 dollars. Thar's 1000 for getting buster, and 1000 for crashing.
(If a helicopter is able to cut off your engine, you'll only lose 1000 dollars for getting busted)
-If you see something on the road rocks, garbage cans, or signs, knock them over to get around a 100 dollars per item you hit. But be careful though in some maps, as these items are very near walls and barricades that you will loose 1000 dollars by crashing into them.
