"Samson the slacker" glitch
during a circuit race, if you have Samson as your wingman & the infinite crew charge cheat is on, when you have Samson trying to block someone, somehow he stops working. this happens in ALL circuit races in ALL locations.
I was once saving up money until i noticed that the car price was not (money £ $) 186,000 cash it was then 208,000 cash. ITS OUT OF ORDER!!!
Beat Kenji Easy
If you start your career with Tuner do a few races with the RX-8, don't tune it up till you get the Mazda 3, that car smacks the RX-8 with the acceleration and you beat Kenji easily.
I tried that Tip a lot of times.
Crew members
Neville: Available at start
Sal: Available after 4-6 races
Yumi: Available after beating Kenji
Samson: Available after beating Angie
Colin: Available after beating Wolf
Nikki: Available after beating 3 bosses
Do more damage to police cars
When you are being chased by the police, wait to they are side on to you, activate speed breaker and crash into them.
When you are drifting, lift off the power and you will get more grip.

*Better for canyon drifts.
Early Cash
Ok first make sure you have a save game from NFS Most Wanted on the memory card. Next when choosing class pick Exotic then as soon as you can go to the car lot pick any car you want except the Alfa Brera or Merc i picked the RX8 then once you have aquired your ride go to the safe house sell the Brera you got from the start as the RX8 is cheaper you should make a profit from it another reason for doing this that is i reckon that Wolf is the easiest boss despite haveing the best car so when you beat him try to get the pink slip and sell the RX8 coz the DB9 is the best Tier 2 car in the game.
easy drifting
requirement: ford mustang for best drifting.

in drifting when going around a corner dont hold the X button down......
keep tapping it and you should drift around the corner.
when i did this when i was playing i got a scoe of 236,897 points!
Easy Start
When you begin career mode, choose exotics and capture all of Fortuna. Do not upgrade your original car but buy the lotus as soon as possible. Sell your original car and beat wolf. Easy Boss and save on money.
Extra power from unlimited mitrous
First, enable the unlimited nitrous cheat. Second, go to the performance part upgrade section of the car you want to drive. Choose your current nitrous package. When the screen with the nine boxes comes up, set all the boxes to the velocity side on the left. Select finish or press X. You're ready to race. Since you already have unlimited nitrous, this won't take away from the duration and will give you more power from your nitrous.
Game Over
When you got game over.
It make you start all over but notice that you already unlock all of the car, so you can buy tier 3 early...
Get past spike strips
when the cops start using spike strips there is an easy way to avoid them..

to the right of the spike strip there r like 2 cops. to the right of them is a space just big enouth to get through.


hope this helps

How to beat Darius
Ok, first off, your gonna need to beat Kenji, Wolf, and Angie all together with their new cars. Not as tough as it sounds, but watch out for Wolf, as he seems to stay on your tail a lot. If they try to get past you, just swerve in front of them, and if you get the chance, hit a nearby persuit breaker to slow them down. That should lead you to a win with them.

Then comes Darius, he's much more challenging and very hard to beat. With him, whatever you do, DO NOT let him pass! If he passes you in the street race, it's practically over, I know this because I tried to catch up with him, it didn't work... at all. So if he tries to pass you, do whatever you can to stay in front of him.

Once that's over, then comes the hard part... the canyon duel. For a quick win there (this might take a few shots) you will have to pass him on the first turn, as that's the best time to get in front of him. If you have a muscle, this will be extra difficult. When you come up to the turn, hit the brakes a little in front of the turn, and then use him for the turn, in other words, ram him in about the front or middle of his car (while turning). Remember, this isn't very easy to do.

Once you get in front of him, don't let him pass, because then the whole thing needs to be started over. The next turn will be difficult to stay in front of him because his car can take the turns really fast. Once your in front of him for ten seconds... boom! Instant win! Hope this helps!!!
Losing the Heat
Cops on your tail? An easy way to lose them is to go to any body shop and start working on your car. Just change the color and your heat is lost!
Mastering drifting
Hit the shift down button just before entering a corner to boost the transmission's rev so your ride drifts in an arching motion. Hit the NOS if it's about to run out of momentum. This trick can be repeated as many times as desired so make full use of it. Hitting the E-brake simultaneously when shifting down will help angle your ride better. Please note that by using this method, you must be able to maintain your ride's speed preferably within the blue bar.
New car quick!
If you don't like your current supercar, I know a way to get a new one easy! First buy the cheapest car you can get, then sell the supercar. Then choose the car of your choice. Then sell the cheap car. You buy the cheap car because you can't sell your only car, so you need atleast 2 cars to sell cars.
Pursuit Breaker glitch
When you go through a pursuit breaker in a police chase, if you go straight from a pursuit breaker to a roadblock, you will drive through the cops like they werent there
Restarting Career Mode
Normally when you create a new alias, you lose all the cars and rewards cards that you have already unlocked. In order to start a new career yet keep all the cars and reward cards you have unlocked, just sell all your cars until you have 1 left. Then, get busted 3 times and pay your fines after each time. You should then have all 3 impound strikes filled. Get busted one more time and select "Go to Main Menu". There, you can start a new career using your same alias. All the cars that you previously unlocked will still be available to purchase. You will also have all the reward cards that you have already unlocked.

Note: Before selling all your cars, do any reward cards that you might not have done yet that include selling or buying cars to fill your garage, etc.
Save Your Money to 1,000,000
One of your challenges is too get 1,000,000
how are you gonna do that ?

Don't buy paint job for they are useless.
When you get Boss car, use them to win all the race till you beat every race and have 1,000,000
then spend your money like crazy.
So you have a roadblock infront and you want to take out more than 1 car? Look no further, simply activate Speedbreaker before you hit and notice that you get more weight on your car and takes down more.
Stacked Deck Help
When you first start on Stacked Deck, use Nikki as your wingman. She will dominate the race without you having to win the race.
Starting tip
During the countdown "3, 2, 1", hold down X and L1 (Nitrous). When it is time to go, make sure you are still holding down X and L1. Your car will shoot off in front of all of the other drivers, because the nitrous will have made your car get through it's gears quicker. It will allow you have have a little head start in the race.
The Fast and Furious (part 1)
Okay, having trouble? Get a Dodge Charger SRT8 and verse Wolf. Beat him in the street and try (in the canyon. Make sure the car's upgraded as much as possible.) When you're chasing him (first part) try and pass him. A 10 second countdown will start. Stay in front for the ten seconds and boom! You win the canyon race AND you get his Aston Martin DB9, and then get to choose two cards! So cool!
Ways to Beat Police
At the Highways go as speed as you can, once you reached over 100MPH stop and turn around and run until you find another passage.

Go over 70MPH and stop then the police will drift in front of you, then use your nitrous and crash them so hardy then leg it


1. go on a hideout, big shortcuts or enter the safe house or car lot

2. crash them all the time

3. when you find them RED ARROWS pointing down the same as the poles are, CRASH THEM and the police will crash

What does evade, busted, cooldown mean and what happens when your busted!

EVADE: the police had lost you and you had reached the cooldown bar

BUSTED: The police got you, you lost

COOLDOWN: After you finished EVADING the police lost you BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO MAKE A RUN FOR IT
