How do I beat Blacklist #9?

How do I beat Blacklist #9?

How do I beat Earl, I have been stuck on him forever. I can beat him easily on the speedtrap, but it's the long sprint that I get stuck on. He stays right behind me during the race and always gets me at the end of the race. So I need to know, what is the best car to beat him with? Give me some tips to please.

A better question would be... "How upgraded is your car?"

A better car doesn't help as much as the upgrades on the car. If you don't have good upgrades, then you will lose whether you have a great car or not.
One of the best ways to win is to simply practice on that sprint course outside of career mode. Do it until you get sick of the track and when you start falling asleep. And once you can easily beat everybody else, take Earl on.

Another thing that may be stopping you is the layout of the track. There may be hidden shortcuts you don't know about. The best way to find them: practice outside career mode.

Cayman is the best car to use and it will be lot more easy for you to win if you upgrade it.

I had same problem hes crap at speedtrap but class at sprint I could beat up until about 85% but then id be on his but from there on if your the same the key is stay with him when you have a full bar of nos then use 3 quaters of it just in case but if you can't stay up with him then I suggest you go back to baron and do some of his races to get money to do up your car

Listen man, DON'T USE THE CAYMAN!!!!! I could never beat him with that, and I am a PRO at NFS. What I suggest is use the TOYOTA SUPRA, (vic's) and MAX IT OUT. Performance settings are important too. Nitrous: all the way to the left. Turbo: to the right. And steering: to the right. Hope this helps, and occasionally, during that race, he crashes into shortcuts, giving you the upper hand. Well, Good Luck!!!

dragonblayd you are my hero! i tried it like 20 times with my supra and with your set up i won the first time additionally i had lowered the vehicle heigth and increased the handling a little

This method is terrible. The Supra is slower than the Cayman and spins out really easily...

You can beat him only by challenging him again and again until you know every and each corner of the road and how to cross them I beat him after playing far a whole day from 8'o clock in the morning till 3'o clock in the night.......don't worry after few hours of re match will lead you to sucess

I used my Porsche Cayman S (I got from Baron) and the sprint race is easy if you tune your performance tuning like this: Steering, Handling, Brakes up 2. Aerodynamics and Turbo down 1. And nitrous up 3. Hope this helps

Toyota supra is the only car that can defeat earl , I was stuck at the sprint race but once I used the Toyota supra ,I could defeat him,make sure your car is upgraded, don't hit anywhere,don't do over speeding.

There is nothing about a car. It's all about practice and smart work on the path.

If you want to beat Earl, a blacklist #9, you should use your (LANCER EVOLUTION VIII) too...
If you have a money to upgrade it all performances get it.

That is why I beat razor easily, no interruption..
