Easy Gold Trophy in National License B-5 Test

Drive to the right immediately after you start the National License B-5 test and crash into the white barrier. Then if you hit the fourth or fifth white block from the entrance to the other side of the track you will get the Gold trophy. An alternate and easier way to do this is to just hold Right and no gas during the countdown and you will eventually hit the correct area in the barrier.

Easy A-Spec NASCAR Extreme Series victories.

In the Extreme Series there is a NASCAR event. These beasts of metal can be very hard to get used to. Follow these tips & you'll find yourself winning this championship first time around.

First off; you have to buy a NASCAR vehicle. The Toyota, Ford and Chevy dealers all have them. They're all for sale for 500,000 credits. Go through them all, and find a paint scheme you enjoy.

Then go to GT Auto and place the oil. This is a must-do trick to give a small permanent BHP boost to all cars, regardless if you buy them new or not.

Then go the Tuning Shop and buy Racing Soft tyres for your NASCAR.

Now enter the series & enter the Championship. Now follow these simple tips & you should come out on top.

Formula Gran Turismo championship - A-Spec Extreme Series race m

This is an incredibly difficult championship to win. I've found that using the following set up will help making driving the very tempermental Formula GT car easier.

Requirements; Level 24, 6 million credits. 2.5 to 3 hours of continual game time. There are no saves in the championship!!

First off, to enter this race you need to be the Formula Gran Turismo race car. This car costs 4.9million credits. It can be found occasionally in the Used Car Dealership, or if you have installed Update version 1.05, in the online used dealership.

What you'll need to do once you've bought the Formula GT is to go to GT Auto - replace the oil. Then go across to the Engine Rebuild. This costs 500,000 cred..

How to get an insanely expensive car for free

PS: You do not get a expensive car evrytime but mostly.

PS: 1967 is the best year because almost all of the most expensive cars is made in that year.

B-5 license test 3 second gold medal

This cheat involves getting a gold medal on the B-5 license test. I've heard that it is nearly impossible to get a gold on this test, so i found this online. First, you must turn the traction control off. Then, as soon as you start driving, keep your steering hard to the right and keep on the throttle. There is a lane of asphalt that leads to the sidewall on the right of track. Hit the wall as hard as you can in this area. I think that this only works if you have enough speed to make the rear of the car jump. Anyway, my record for this license test is 3.078 seconds, 19 seconds being the gold time Smile. There's a video on youtube titled "Gran Turismo 5 GT5 Funny Fail License Test" which shows this cheat in action in..
