Use the Ford GT or the Mercedes SLR McLaren. Or the Porsche Carrera GT if you unlocked it.You can put in a cheat for infinite nitrous and beat him in the first race. But in the canyon it's hard so stay tight on the corners and you'll beat him.

You can use the Mercedes SLR McLaren, Customised the Engine, Transmission, Nitros and Supercharge to top performance and remember to change the tyre size to 21" at Wheel(any design). Good luck!

The Nissan Skyline GT-R is the only way to fly

My car choices would be this:

Exotic: Lamborghini Mercielago, SLR McLaren, or Ford GT

Muscle: Corvette Z06, Viper SRT-10, or Dodge Challenger

Tuner: Lancer evo, Skyline GT-R, or Toyota Supra

By the way, have all of these cars with racing package for everything.

Any 4 Wheel Drive car. The Lancer and the Skyline is best.

if your looking to beat kengi or other jerks you have came to the right page well first you have to have gameover and the secret if you got the evo you will be in luck because when you get the money to buy the car you slingshot and beat kengi,angie,and wolf for darius youd know okay!now go out there and beatem till you sweat (and go insane!jerks)

I have had a couple of runs through the game one for each car class. I fully understand now that the best career class to start with is "Exotic", when you get to the final city (Silverton) Buy either a Ford GT, A Lamborghini Murcielago or a McLaren Mercedes SLR. Personally I bought the Ford GT and I totally thrashed him. I overtook Darius on the second corner and that was that.

BMW M3 GTR, if you can unlock it that is... Otherwise I would recommend a Corvette Z06.

Used Ford Gt,Lamborghini gallardo/murclielago and Mitsubishi Evo9 and won first race with Darius.But the canyon race is too difficult and I lost.

Just stay focused, all the way down. It took me ten times to beat Darius in the canyon duel, but that's probably cause I used the Lancer Evolution.(wow, I'm stupid!)

Use any Tier 3 car, I suggest using Muscle or Exotic.
Use my special tuning to beat him easily:
Engine: Torque
Transmission: Acceleration
Suspension: Understeer
Nitrous: Velocity (if activated infinite NOS cheat. Tune to Duration if cheat isn't activated)
Tires: Grip
Brakes: Front Bias
Turbo/Supercharger: High RPM

I beat him with my self-made Cross Corvette Z06.

Muscle would not be good on the canyon races

I have beat the game 7 times (and about to do it again)...

For muscle, use the vette or the viper. I used the viper with ALL racing parts (I find the vette's horrible handling to be just too horrible to operate with). I set everything for acceleration/torque, and brakes for rear bias. In the city, it's fairly easy, just remember to take all 3 shortcuts, and on the first shortcut, DO NOT use the left side when you go through the billboard....theres a fence there, and if you hit it, you will give Darius the lead. Keep to the right of it. When you lose the lead, it is hard to get it back. Keep an eye on that rear-view. The way I beat him is by points, not by passing him.

For tuner (hardest one), I would use the EVO or Nissan Skyline...again, you will probably want upgraded parts. Set everything for acceleration, and rear bias on the brakes. In the city, just drive normally, keep your finger on the nitrous button, and watch the rear-view about as much as the road. Take EVERY shortcut, because if darius passes you, you will not get it back. In the canyon, either try to pass him (how I usually do it) at about the 59% or so point. Youll be going through a hairpin, and Darius will tap his brakes...but you wont have to because of the fact that you are driving a tuner (great handling). But if you can't pass him, the best thing to do is just drive. Relax, and keep of the walls and youll eventually get him (how I did it last night). I beat him with 1,000 points left though, so either way, it wont be easy.

For exotics, I think the Carrera GT has the best handling. Stay away from that lambo...the handling is too horrid on it. I havent tried it on the ford GT yet, however I am about to play it again, and I think I will give it a shot this time. Again, just keep your parts torwards acceleration. Top speed is USELESS in the canyon....which is the hardest race.

But as for rating the easiest and hardest classes to beat him on, I am going to say Muscle is the easiest, Tuner is the hardest, and exotics are somewhere in the middle.

TIP: don't get to anxious while driving....relax, and stay off the walls, and youll do fine.

Hope it helps!

YEAH! Finally I beat him. I used Corvette Z06 and I had 130.000 points after the 1st run and 4000 points after second run. The city race was too hard, so I used unlimited nitrous and speedbreaker codes. Then I pressed R3 and used speedbraker all race. It took time, but was worth it and I finished 20 seconds before him.

I used a dodge challenger concept and do you believe I beat angie kenjie and wolf (they use lamborghini gallardo, dodge challenger concept and lancer evolution ix respectively) so easily that I couldn't dream of it!!!!!!!! During the race I neither saw the points table nor the mini map I just concentrated on the race.... I looked on the map when I was 200 cms. Away from the finishing line.... They were not to be seen anywhere in the map!!!!!! Will you believe??? !!!!!!!! And of course I won. I defeated darius in the same way. But when I headed on to the canyon my mom came and I had to exit the game.......... Grrrrrrr...... My progress finish!!!!!!I did the 2nd time just the way I told you now.... I got the same victory even in darius's canyon duel!!!! Believe me this account is not false......

Beating Darius is actually quite easy when you have a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX MR. Just max out the engine and transmission to give it a higher top speed, mainly because top speed is a tuners weakness. And then the top speed should be around 233mph and the handling and acceleration is already amazing so as long as you DON'T E-brake on the canyon, you'll be fine. I only had to do the canyon once because I passed Darius near the end where there's a long left curve that you can pass him on. Hope it helps!

I used the Dodge viper and won both races with the help of nitrous and all pro performance parts. But yeah the Dodge viper would be the best choice to use, and also stay focused and cool headed.

The Corvette or the Viper. In the city race, rely on your enormous acceleration and shortcuts, and in the canyon, just overtake him on the first turn and drive sharply into the second one (If you go wide, he'll regain the lead). The timer counts to 0, Darius is DED. Not big surprise.
