more layers on it for example any body vinyle,then again come in customization(vinyles)

message:No layers over unique vinyls can be applied either remove or replace.you replace
it,it won't show you the unique vinylwhich you had applied before,it'll only show you the
latest applied vinyl.Don't worry about it and just purchase setup.when you do so you'll
see many layers that you've applied over unique vinyl.

if not just take your car to an open area and press the accelerator,turn,

Submitted by: NIRVAN PAREVA
so one common bias that people have in mind is dat nos dosent help !!!
(yea ppl do really tell me dis)..
well my ans to dis is dat it dosent UNTILL UNLESS USED IN A CORRECT WAY...
the best way is to gain as much extra nos as yo'll can for dat keep the
foll on mind :-
1)At the beginin of the race wen the screenz sayin 1.2..3 at dat pt jst press
ur nitrous key once ..ull c a slight increase in the nitrous level.
2)when the race starts keep ur car straight nd do nt move left or rite ...
u'll again gain a little NOS as burnout !!!
3)the foll is a diff. one nd its called THE J-TURN ..even i am npt able to
master it yet ...but its quite helpfull..(THIS CANNOT BE DONE DURING A
RACE ..U WONT WWANNA WASTE TIME)..nw 2 do dis go 2 an open space nw stop
ur car...start driving it in reverse nd after3-4 sec turn it left or rite
and then suddenly press the forward button (THE POINT IS TO FORM A INVERTED J)
...it will take some time !
4)This a also a good 1 ...i call it THE REVERSE EFFECT !! ....its quite simple
nd effective ..turn 2 ur rear-view mirror nd den drive back in a straight
line wait for a few sec u'll c ur nos gaining ....but DNT GET INTO AN ACCIDENT
OT UN BALANCE UR CAR ...its a gud 1

While you r in the game the opponent car car is seen as green in triangle
follow it and when you are near the opponent car hit it slowly at the rear.
Then a blink of car at the top-right of the game screen. Press F1 and then
Outrun race will start. Make sure that you
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
You can save your game whenever desired in the city. Go to the location where you
want your game to be saved, press [Esc], and select "Jump To Garage". Change something
(for example, an accessory on your car) and you will be prompted to save the game.
Select "Yes", and your game will be saved in that specific location.

Wining an 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
Easy style points:
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.
If getting last in drags? No problem if you follow this cheat:
1. Make sure it is straight no cars or anything that can make you totaled.
2. Draft with your opponents.
3. Turn left or right.
4. Use your NOS to overtake 'em.
5. Block them.
6. They will bump you to give you some boost.
7. They will go slower.
8. Use your NOS to lose them.
9. WE WON! yay! woohoo!
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.
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.
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.

If you are in stage 4 .try racing the same guy about three times if you win him 3
times he will give you a unique body part ,after you race through the city and you
get to a specific body shop you can choose 1 out of 3 wide body kits(make sure you
install it on a good car you'll only get this chance once)until stage 5.the best
part is you,ll be the only one with it.
(until stage 5, that is).
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.
Easy Drift Wins:
Submitted by: Marko
Go to car lot and buy car with best handling.Go to performance shop and bust everything
but speed. Now you are able to win every drift race in the game!!!
Easy drift points:
In Jackson Hill there are many places where the ledge is away from the road. In
Organic Drift Racing, drift your car between the dusty area between the road and the
ledge. If done correctly you can score more than 60,000 points in that single drift.
Go to the car lot and buy the car with best handling. Go to the performance shop and
increase everything but speed. You should be able to win every drift race.
Wining an outrun:
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.
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.
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.
Like to add hydraulics in Skyline:
Submitted by: Fahim
To do this, go to the car specialties shop, and add the level 2 hydraulics.
Now your Skyline cool. You can now more customize your car.
Easier turns in URL races:
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.
Sure outrun victory:
Submitted by: NIKHIL
HEY,this is a sure victory if done correctly. Make sure u hv enough speed,find an outrun
opponant, when he is in front of u, ram ur car wid high speed, just when the outrun sign
blinks in the top-left corner. This will make the opponant lose control of his car and
ram the car else where. U being at high speed,will cruise away easily. If done correctly
u will be a happy racer!!!
