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.
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 Left 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.
To fill your NOS gauge when you have hydraulics, flip any car or SUV and hold A
for about two seconds. Then, press any button to activate the hydraulics.
Immediately, the word "Hydro" will appear on the right hand side of the screen
with a number underneath. The number should continue to rise and not stop. To
stop doing this, release A and press Back to flip the car back over, starting with a
NOS gauge filled to the overflow gauge.
Taking a nice photo shoot
Once you are in the photo shoot area, press B, hold your handbrake, 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.
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.
Get drift points easy:
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.
