Excite Truck Hints for Wii
After you earn a certain amount of total stars, a new truck is unlocked. The total number of stars you currently have isnt listed anywhere in the game, so youll have to keep track of it yourself. The new trucks that are unlocked with Super Excite Mode are a little different: if you have earned past the number of stars required to unlock the Dynamo, then the first SE mode truck (Dynamo) is unlocked after earning 500 more stars, then every subsequent truck is unlocked after the difference between that truck and the next truck is earned. Example: the Mongoose is unlocked after you earn 1000 stars after unlocking the Dynamo, regardless of your over-all star count. The second and final exception for the rule is the Monster Truck and Crazy Monster Truck.

When doing an air spin try to keep your wii remote facing towards you so that you can get mroe spins in, and therefore, more stars.
To get alternate paint jobs, you need to race 10 races with the truck you want the paint job for or you can get 3 S Grades with that truck.
When doing an airspin, keep the controller tilted back, many people make the mistake of leaning forward, this just lessens your airtime, causing crashes.
