When doing the race, 180 miles per hour in heavy traffic, the best car to use is the Saleen. This is because the Saleen can reach 180 mph in about 12 seconds. In 14 seconds, you can earn 70,000 dollars.
When tyring to reach Champion status it is important to realize the amount of achievements that need to be completed. You need to reach a total of 450 gamerpoints in order to reach Champion status. My advice to you is to do that 15,000 dollar race for about 2 hours until you get about 4 million dollars and then buy all of the cars you need for the achievements and all the houses.
1st off let me just say that this will only work if you have 1 police badge blinking. I'm not sure if it works when you have 1 solid badge and 1 blinking badge. But it makes it easier to get the cops off you instead of having to drive like a normal citizen as we all no that sux lol.
When about twenty percent done with game there should be a race called the million Race,dont try it with a car,the best way to beat this race easy is to get a Kawaskia ninja bike and go to the parts store for this bike and make it as fast As possible.it should go two hundred and one MPH.this makes it so easy because when you wreck it's easy to get back to speed.this an hour long race and I finished in fourty five minutes With wreckin alot.i tryed it with an enzo ferriari and the other cars with me the whole race.when I got to the end the went ahead and won.when I used the bike I stayed a coulpe miles ahead of them the whole race.now you have a million Dollars to spend.
If you are at champion level you should hav a race called 'alfa romeo day' and this race pays out 75,000 each time you race. It only takes 1min 15secs to complete with a tuned level 3 alfa and you pretty much cannot lose. I hav done this race over and over and am currently buying all the supercars I can! So happy money making!
A lot of peopel ask how to get to ford island when they unlock it. Ford island is the island that has a ocean liner docked at a small island. Vid. Http://youtube.com/watch?v=r-wnTWF4T8k&mode=related&search=
First off, get a decent car, (ive got a fully maxxed TVR Sagaris but it's up to you) and go to the race, 140mph Through Country Winding Roads, or something I can't exactly remember and just quickly get up to 140mph and you get 10,000!! Btw it is somewhere in the south east.
If you want some quick cash go to the car rental that lets you rent the nice cars and get a saleen s7 twin turbo. Then go to the race called Saleen Day is a 49s-1min race and you get $15,000 so you make $900,000/hr
When you first get the game, to get used to the island, get the map out in front of you (if you got a copy with the game) and find some hitchhiker and vehicle transport missions to get a good load of cash and learn you way around. Remember that to make the vehicle transport or hitchhiker missions appear on the map you have to of drove past them, so drive round for a bit to find one.
This is also good if you are short of cash The vehicle transport missions are one-shot (if you succeed you cant play again, theres 30 of them) but you get anything from $80,000 up and a 50% bonus if you get it there without a scratch!
