All Cheats and Tips - Latest First.

Easy Points Up

Choose 'Quick Race' and select 'Miyatomi Track', 'Drift' and '20 Laps'. Then pick the Mazda RX7 and only upgrade the brakes. If you drift on straights and corners you should score about 50,000 - 60,000 Driver Points in about 20 minutes of racing.

Performance Tuning

Check out the following video for tips and hints on performance tuning.

Easy Driver Points in Quick Race Mode

Select 'Drift mode', '0 Opponents', '15 laps', and '.22 Mile Oval Track' as a location. You will be able to get a 2x quickly and keep it the entire time because the track is so small.

Precision or Aggresion?

well that 1 question means alot but if you choose precision its harder to level up easy and if you choose aggresion then your gonna find it much easier to level up[size=12][/size]

easy money and points

first enter a drift event then go to the shortest track do all three events and then you will end up with 25000 to 35000 points

Easy Leveling

I found this while advancing through the career. Its not a cheat, but simply a quicker way of getting to the level you desire. This is what you need to do:
1. Unlock tier 3 and buy the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 and build up enough money to max out it's stats and buy works. Then tune the front end downforce (Aerodynamics) to 14 instead of 4.
2. Enter the Endurance events once you have unlocked them and select the "Race at Hazyview Eight" event.
3. Once you have entered, do whatever it takes to rack up as many points as you can. Try mostlyfor corner sliding, as that raises your score by 2,000 to 3,000 each time. Try to hit other racers aswell, because this also gives you about 2,500 points each time.
You will notice that the race is 30 laps long, but that isn't as bad as it sounds. The track itself is only 0.31 miles and you will most likely finish each lap in 16-20 seconds. I personally complete each in 16.3 seconds, and I've finished the race in 10 minutes, 20 seconds. And by the timeyou finish, you should have around 10,000 to 15,000 overall points. This amout can easily bump you up 1, 2, or even 3 levels at a time, but 3 is not guaranteed if you're a higher level.
I have been doing this for the past day and a half, not nonstop, and I've went from being level 23, to level 49. I can promise you will have the same result. But the points scored also depends on how good you are at the game and if you can do exactly what is required to rack up those points.
These are the main categories to put most of your effort into when trying to get points:
Clean Sector- Complete a sector of the race without making contact with opponents or going off the track
Clean Overtake- Pass an opponent without making contact
Dirty Overtake- Pass an opponent by forcing your way through
Corner Slide- Drifting around corners without leaving the track
Trade Paint- Simply hitting or ramming an opponent
Spin Opponent- Cause an opponent to spin out or go off the track after you have hit or rammed them.
Hope I helped; Happy Leveling!!
