To unlock most car parts you need to find newer parts shops.
The best starting car by way is the Purgeot (sorry about spelling) 106
The downsid is that it sucks at Drag!
PS What is the best car in the Game??
If you are in somewhere in the middle of the game and you want a cooler car, I would recommend you to before you choose the car, go to the main menu and go to customize and tune up the car you wanted there to see if the parts you are going to istall it look cool.
The best car for Street-X races is the Mazda Miata
Most of the dudes here say that nissan skyline is the fastest car in the game, well no- skyline sucks at drift the only thing that is good at this car is that it's accelaration is at the top, but my friend can't beat me with his stupid skyline, he fix everything he can in the dyno are but he still can't beat me. Every car has ability to beat others, it's just that some cars are truely fast but not that fast!!!
I wont' tell you my favorite car but I have my top five and skyline is not one of them, I only use my top 3 car to beat my friends skyline and guess what it's rx-7.
So don't be saying that skyline is the fastest because it's not!
The Nissan Skyline is the fastest car on the game, but also the worst at handling.
It's good at drag, circuit and sprint but it's rubbish at street x and can't drift to save it's life (because of IBS (Intelligent Braking System)).
Also, to do well at drift (in any car) get level 3 suspension and tyres and set the suspension to soft and make the rear sway bar soft and the front stiff.
Also, set the gears to high accelaration and set the tyres to high - grip. (this is so you don't crash on bends and lose all your drift points.
Is particularly useful on down hill drift.)
Ok. To all you people who say make a car look cool, you don't have to. Just stick with what you have. If you have awsome performance, it makes up for looks.
Now for the money.
My way of making money is to get on the highway. I start cruising at around 20 below my max, which is 157mph. I then keep going around the highway without getting off until I find a tuner. I use NOS to boost and I hit the tuner in the bumper HARD! Then at the last second when I can challenge, I take it. Then I zoom off. When you win, you can continue and get money and upgrades.
My quickest outrun race was 3.2 seconds. For some odd reason the tuner did doughnuts and my car went 200 mph(!?!?!?).
When doing my way of money, sometimes when you zoom off the tuner takes the lead somehow and he goes the other way. Some wierd things happen in outruns.
When you start out, get the Pudegout(spelling). It is very good in top speed.
Get up close to stairs or somthing lower thn the front of your car when hidralucs Then preform hidrous and you will bounce the better the hidrous the higher you go.
Before you do an outrun race, do a California Stop(when you run into the back right side of the car)and press up.Use as much nitro as you can until you win.Doing the California Stop will cause you opponent to spin out making it harder for them to win.
Putting suspension on your car can give you the edge in Street X races.
All the N4SU2 players stuck in level 4, if you want to get level 5, you have to spend some money in latest visual udgrades, paint, body, special stuff,
be sure, that everything that you purchas, be the best.
Hasnt anybody noticed this cheat already?!?!?
Its quite simple actually and you can do it on either carrear or th cusumize carz on main screen.
But basilcly you need to choose a vynal you want under neath your uniqe(i recomend a full body vinyl) and place in 1st slot then Purchace setup then deleate the vinyl you just bought and change the vinyl to your uniqe then go out of that menu (dont exit the garage or purchace setup) and go to paints.scroll round in there for a sec and then click /\.
Tada uniqe vinyl over a body vynal (also you get more Visual Rating).also it works on Xbox aswell
If you want to have cars with 10 stars and as fast as it can then only get 4 car as you go through the game, I recomend that you get an SUV too
It's kinda an obvious one, but seriously just do loads of Outruns during a stage and before the final race of that stage and you can get Uniques of just about anything.
Try getting the view in the best position viewing the trunk.
Start driving around. Your bound to run in to a person in a pimped out ride. When you do(if you do) go infront of him just & stop drive control. Maybe use nos during it
After that find the best view of front end, then take the photo
This is better with a normal car
Another way: open up your hood, Doors & your trunk. Then get out of showoff & go into drive control. Quickly use nitrous purge & get out of it. You can haveany view you like. After that just take the photo
This is better with an SUV
Have you ever seen people do wheelies in this game? And all the tutorials are on computer? Well, I put alot of work into and learned to do it on console. This requires:
Level 3 Hydraulics
Cars to use:
Ford Mustang GT
Mazda Miata MX-5
Only these cars can do wheelies.
Here's the trick now, make sure you are at 0 MP/H. Tap the left analog stick up simultaneously along with tapping R1 the same way, after about 5 seconds, stop. Your cars front should be bouncing automatically, hold the Handbrake to prevent moving forward, and when your car is about to go up, punch the gas and nitrous, your car will pull up, and if done right your car can go atleast 4 seconds in a wheelie. 7 with manual transmission. This takes a little practice to get good at it.
You will be unstoppable if you tune you car with all unique parts.
Ok, to get the fastest car get that stupid mazda miata that you would call it...
And tune it, it's stats for acceleration top speed and handling all most at the end of the line! and when u tune it at body shop it looks really rad!!!!!!!
When in an outrun race go up to the person you want to race then get close to the back of their car, turn sharply towards their bumper in an attempt to spin them.
Press up to race them they will be spinning out of control and you'll win the race and collect uniques and $100.
On Drift Modes take as long as you like drifting because when all the racers are at the finish line and not you it gives you a chance to rack up points.
When you do this, make sure to be on the big interstate. (Highway) First, you get behind your rival and start the outrun. You know when you're driving down the highway, there are those safety blocks seperating the lanes going in the opposite direction. Wait until the safety blocks end, and then quickly switch lanes right before they start again so your opponent will be confused and stop and turn around, and within that time you will win. Make sure your rival is less than 250 feet away when you switch lanes.
The best drift car is the Volkswagen Golf. The world record single drift for this car is 3.3 Million points. For tuning information I would check the web for the perfect tunings that can be set at the Dyno Track.
Basically any car can win a race like that if you have killer suspension.
If you wanna win an easy outrun,drive to someone on the highway on the right and push the back left side of the car until itspins out and press the up button to join the outrun and use ALL your nos.This works because while your opponents car spins,you will gain speed because highways gain the most speed because you'll go real fast!
For the steering ratio, it's actually better if you set it to soft as your steering will respond more quickly. For the sway bar and shocks, you need to have them around half way and springs: always have them to hard.
If you want the best car to start with i would pick the corsa it has awsome handling and has some destructive acceleration its better towards the end when you have kitted it up then you will know what im talking about.
To load cars for player 2, press square, this allows player 2 to also pick the created cars.
