Most Popular Hints and Tips
You can beat darius in canyon duel if you buy a corvette with full tunned the following parts should be tunned:
1:Make all the performance parts to race package and for NOS keep full velocity, horse power full and keep high RPM
2:Use body kit 4
3:Do 100% chop top(you need to hire colin for this.
4:Use the spoiler ripper.(after market)
With Darius being fast, you need to have good handling, I would go with a Toyota supra
It helped me beat him, cause I beat him with a no upgraded supra, except for nos
I beat him easily, just try with a supra it worked for me
Using these guidelines I banked over $1,000,000
-If you want to get the most money in your career use your car until it can't win races,then start by adding nitrous and so on.
-Start with the camaro that way you will get samson and he gives you 10 more money per win.
-Keep Neville in your crew, an extra $200 per race can really add up.
-Yumi gives you a 10 discount on performance parts, and Nikki gives you a 10 discount on cars.
When I played Need For Speed Carbon ages ago, I mainly went through career with two cars, Subaru Impreza WRX and the Ford GT.
I used the Subaru in canyons and used the Ford GT in normal races.
In the last part of the game, when you have to beat all the bosses in one race, it's pretty hard but I did win using the Ford GT.
So I recommend using the Ford GT to win that last race.
How I beat darius was I used my porsche carrera gt. I actually beat him the same way I beat the lamborgini murcialogo. I tried using my murcialogo but it didnt work. But when I used my porsche I beat him (1st try) in fifteen seconds.
You first need to unlock your favourite car in the game.then you get caught by the police till you loss your last car and get game over.then you start all the way again.when you do that you will also get the cars you unlocked before also.so collect some money and buy the car at the start of the game!!!!
Hope I helped you
You should complete the following task to unlock the creq memebers:
Sal Joins after four to six races.
Yumi Joins after defeating Kenji/Bushido.
Colin Joins after defeating Wolf/TFK.
Samson Joins after defeating Angie/21st Street.
Nikki Joins after defeating all three beginning Bosses.
Ok so the first thing before you start the carreer get a rx8 mazda then defeat take wver kenji's terrotory and him.This might not work but it is your own risk doing this you have to have his pink slip.(make sure that you save the game when you get the phone call from kenji). You need to save it because incase you have to reset it you can still directly race him this is where I got his pink slip but it is your own risk following this put your finger at the fully left slip then go 2 steps ahead.Then go and get angie then get her pink slip if you get wolf's car sell it!! Because it's pritty slow then unlock a(dont buy any car until you unlock the dodge viper) you need a dodge viper because you can pass darius really easily!!!keep some crews that discount some parts.Some people still ask do you get darius's car in carreer mode.NO YOU DONT!!! Sadly. Reply me if you have any question.
When on a drift event (with a car set to normal racing not drifting) before you enter a drift turn let up on the gas a bit then when you start the turn give it some gas. When on the turn and you need to go a little bit more to the inside wall give it more gas and if you need to get to the outside wall you need to give it some more e-brake.
When on a drift event (with a car modded to drifting) you can use the same technique but let up on the gas a little bit farther away from the turn and use the e-brake more often.
When you car passing a road block use speed breaker because your car will be more heavy.You also keep your ears open because you will get to know where the spikes are located at the left or right.
You can get police away from you if you go through the road blocks and when you go through them use speed breaker and crash a car in this case you will disable a car and get 90% evade chances from the cops following back of you.To get good pursuits you can use the following cars:
Cheatmaster of all
If you have the unlimited Nitrous cheat activated, here is a helpful tip:
If you notice that when you go to upgrade your car in the performance upgrade, you should notice that when you buy NOS of any package, there will be a few boxes that say velocity and duration above them. Again if you have unlimited NOS, you will do better to change the bar all the way to velocity because it gives you better speed, while duration gives you less of a boost but lasts longer (if you do not have unlimited NOS active)
I was getting chased by the cops on heat 4 when I found a hiding spot, the Cops tried to find me when a cop went right past me and didnt do anything.
The pursuit was over. Than I got chased with my Ford GT to heat 5. Got into a hiding spot but the cop was looking straight at me and didn't do anything. To do this go to paint go to gloss white mettalic white but it has to have greenish in it but it works on heat 4-5 I think.
When you are in a pursuit you shall make a car whci has more acceleration and top speed you need more acceleration.it doesnot matter if you have bad handling beacuse your accelerate is good.So I will prefer to buy viper for pursuits!!!
The cheat to get the BMW M3 GTR is completly bogus, I tried the cheat and it didn,t work along with a few other cheats I tried. The best way to get the BMW M3 GTR is to complete certain reward card challenges.
These challenges are: (the first two challenges you must evade the cops to gain the reward cards)
Raise your cars heat level to heat level 5 in career freeroam
Accumulate a cost to state of $200,000 in career freeroam
Unlock 33 cars
Conqouer all tracks in career freeroam
If you have done all that then you have unlocked the BMW M3 GTR.
When facing with Kenji and Wolf in Canyon Duel, have the Dodge Charger R/T at the ready. In the first 15 seconds you can overtake them and win the Canyon Duel and at the race.
When coming to Roadblocks, Make sure to use your speedbreaker rarely. It makes your car more weight and have the more chance of taking out the cop cars then hitting them.
When coming into straight lines, build up your speed and make sure your nitrous is full. Your car must also be full loaded so you can build a new top speed when racing. This works for races but mostly half chances might helped you.
These are my opinions on what cars should not be used for drifting and canyon duels. (wheather I have used these cars or not)(note: these are only exotics and muslce cars)
The cars are:
MERCEDES-BENZ SLR McLAREN (drift)
ASTON MARTIN DB9 (drift)
MERCEDES-BENZ SL65 AMG (drift)
FORD GT (canyon duel)
LAMBORGHINI MURCIELAGO LP640 (drift)
DODGE VIPER SRT/10 (drift and canyon duel)
CHEVROLET CORVETTE C6 ZO6 (drift)
DODGE CHARGER R/T (canyon duel)
SHELBY GT500 (67) (canyon duel)
(note: all these cars have thier highest level of performance upgrades)
When you're an xotic and you need more speed on the track, use a drafter. They will help you bring the speed in your car that your little heart desires.
Her are some useful advantages when not knoeing which car to pick at the beginning.
Camaro SS------------>Highest Acceleration
Alfa Romeo Brera--->Highest Top Speed
Mazda RX-8----------->Highest Handling
I chose Muscle(Camaro SS) because I like tuners and I really like it when my car handles good. Hope I helped.
If you want to escape from a long pursuit like 19 to 25 minutes, you can use some hints below:
1.you shall take lots and lots of turns so that the police becomes slow, you will need speed breaker for turning.
2.you can break dynamic pursuits which means that you can hit some truck carring cars or logs and make them fall!!!!
3.it is very important to disable police cars you can do that by using speed breaker and crashing into them when they are beside you.some times police traps you on the corner you can use speed breaker and get from the trap.
4.If your tires are pooped you please donnot stop because if you stop it is very difficult to move the car forward!!!!good luck, with this tips you will surely do better!!!!!
Use the Viper for canyon, Use the Ford GT for Races and drift. And while using ford GT for races with more turns use unlimited speed breaker.You can get the cheats on this website!!!And remember use carrea GT for wining with darius!!!
Cheatmaster of all
If you find yourself withC PUs right on your tail during a race, you can use a pursuit breaker during a race and the CPUs will likely crash into it and you will be able to get ahead.
I prefer to take ford gt or any car of lamboginni.Mclaren is not too good.and for Ford gt you could use the body kit 1 because thats the shape you need for a fast car.this is only for ford gt not for anyother car.so I think the last car you will buy will be one of theis cars.You can use viper for canyon because you can over take your opponent and win in canyon!!!but you will need some practice because it is abit difficult to handle it.Good luck!!!
I played and finished the game many times I felt that the carrea GT is the best car to beat darius. This car is about 240000, but if you take nikki in you crew it will become 216000. You also take yumi and sal in your group so that you get 10% discount in the performance parts!!!good luck
