Lift tire off ground
To get a left rear tire off the ground, go to "Customize Car" and put hydraulics on the Pontiac GTO. Go to free ride mode and put the rear of the car off the ground with the hydraulics. Then, push the gas and hit the brakes. The left rear of the car will comes off the ground. Note: You must have the level 2 brakes.
Get any car with level 2 or 3 hydraulics. Lift any side and the front. Start doing donuts in the opposite direction. For example, if the left side tires are lifted, then do an donut to the right, and vice versa. You should see the left or right rear tire lift off the ground. It will be like that for the entire time that you are doing the donut.
Get car on either side of the wheels
This trick requires all of the level 2 upgrades, and hydraulics upgrade level 2. Get the hydraulics to either side of the car, and only that one side. Then, do a donut to the right if the left side of the car is lifted and vice versa. This only happens for a moment.
Install hydraulics level 2. Kiss the wall, then use your hydraulics (move the Analog-stick Up and Down quickly). Sooner or later, the car will jump, even making flips and 360s.

Easy drag race wins
Instead of using nitrous by holding it down and wasting it all at once, just keep tapping NOS as fast as you can. You will gain 1 to 3 mph with every tap, which is actually increases your speed faster than if you were to hold it down. Also, you will run out of it about one third as fast. Try this under the hardest difficulty setting.
In section 3 when you go to a drag race, take off the stability control. Note: You will be going so fast that you can get totaled.

In drift mode, set your car up using the following this basic structure. Tune the ECU to have as much torque as you can get in the early gears. Make all of the suspension settings as hard as possible to eliminate shock travel. This will help get the back end out. Turn the tire grip to weak. Also, make the cars acceleration as quick as possible. For the toe settings, lower it all the way. Make the aero settings as weak as possible. Set the brake bias towards rear. By doing this, you will greatly increase your score, especially on the downhill. On the straight-aways you can do Choku-Doris (go from side to side) to rack up big points. You can then link them to power over-steer drifts, which is when you will use the torque and acceleration to lose traction in the back tires, then use carefully timed throttle control to get around the corner as sideways as possible. This will help your drifts scores get as high as possible. Throttle control is very important -- do not get discouraged if you spin out a lot. Note: This has not been attempted on FF or AWD cars. FF and AWD cars will most likely have a softer suspension setting but everything else would probably remain the same. FF and AWD cars also need the hand brake to initiate drifts more than a FR car would.

Original Need For Speed Underground drift races
Win all Street X races to unlock the drift races from the original Need For Speed Underground.
Easy drift points
Some of the downhill drift races have houses with looping drive ways that you can drive in. Drifting in these driveways gets a lot more points than on the street because you are so far off the road and are not hitting a wall.
Go into Quick Race mode and select the Subaru Impreza with all Extreme or Level 3 performance parts. You may style the visual as desired, Then, choose Drift Track 6 and 10 laps with easy opponents. Drive through the middle of the track. When you are just before a corner, press the handbrake. Release it after you have slightly slid. Your car will soon almost spin and will drift through easily. Continue through the rest of the track by swerving on the straights and using the handbrake properly on the corners. You can get about 50,000 to 500,000 drift points at the end of the race.
Get any car and put level 3 hydraulics on it. Put on level 3 brakes. You can also use all level 3 engine parts to make it go higher. First, put the rear end up. Then, bounce the back. Next, go about 17 mph (or faster) and hit the brake. If done correctly, you could have the entire back end of the car straight up.
When racing for magazine covers, unique performance or visual parts, it helps if you have both NOS bottles filled. This can let you scab that tenth of a second that you have always missed. It also helps, especially in the more difficult and longer stages, with small time limits, to immediately activate the GPS as soon as you have accepted the challenge.
Tap NOS to go faster and conserve NOS. Always put your NOS at little more on power than duration when in dyno testing and tweaking your car. This will make it easier to win races.
Winning Street X
In order to win Street X, you must take the turns wide at first then sharpen up your turns. This will help you add to your lead, and most likely you will win.
To catwalk a car, you must have stage three hydraulics and have stage 3 performance parts. Try using a Mazda RX-8 or a Ford Mustang. To start your catwalk, bounce the front of your car then release the emergency brake but continue to hold Forward. Then hit the gas at the top of the bounce. You car should catwalk. Note: This will now work with AWD and FWD cars.
Easy Street X wins
When you are in Street X, change your car's transmission to manual and use a low gear through most of the race. It will help you cut your speed for better turns.

Get on a highway of some kind at about 110 mph. When traffic is clear, hold R + Left until your car is spun at a 90 degree angle. Then, release the buttons (make sure your car is still spinning) then hold B. You will be driving in reverse. When you are driving, do a J-Turn (turn back around to the front when in reverse). Then, accelerate to finish the move.
Front end donut
Install level 3 hydraulics and bounce the back end of your car. Then, begin to do a donut. After you do about three donuts you will start to do them on your front two tires.
Taking a nice photo shoot
Once you are in the photo shoot area, press X, hold your handbrake, then rev the engine and press either Left or Right. The car should do donuts. While it is doing this, take the photo. This will give a smoky look on your wheels in the picture.
Rear wheel drive wheelie
This trick requires a real wheel drive car with level 3 hydraulics. Start with your car in neutral. Double tap then hold the R to engage the hydraulics. Hold Analog-stick Up to begin bouncing the front end of the car. In mid-bounce, release R, but keep holding the Analog-stick Up. The car will keep bouncing. Press the C-stick Forward to rev up the engine, then shift into first gear, while still holding Forward on both of the Analog-stick and C-stick. Your next hydraulic bounce will be delayed in the air while the car does a rolling burnout, causing your car to do a wheelie. This is great for showing off for the cover shoots of magazines.
This trick requires level 3 hydraulics. Tap A(2), then hold A. Press Analog-stick Forward while still holding A. Release A while holding Analog-stick Forward. Release the Analog-stick and the car should still be bouncing on its front wheels. If so, hold the R to accelerate and the car should pop a wheelie for about 10 to 15 feet.
Two wheel donut
Use an RX-7 with level 3 hydraulics. Put the right side up all the way, but keep the left side down. Get the left side bouncing. Then, steer left the entire time. At first you need to get the speed in the turn up to 20 mph for about three seconds. When on two wheels, keep it at 15 mph to stay in a nice donut on two wheels. It can also be done the other way-- just put the left up instead of the right.
Get bank for races
There are five stages, and as you complete each of them you can go back and repeat the races again. You may even find that there are some races you missed. These are the ones that you want to race. When you go to these, you are not supposed to get anything for them but you can change that. To access these races, go to your garage, then your world map, and select a race. When the race begins, pause game play and restart the race. Notice that there is an option to return to world map, however after you restart it will not be there. You can now race and get bank for it.
After you buy level 1, 2, or 3 hydraulics, come to a complete stop and hold R. Use the Analog stick to move up, down, left, or right. The longer you move back and forth, the more points you will get.
To activate your hydraulics, you hold the gas, the brake, and the hand brake. While holding those down, move the Analog-stick in the direction which you want the car to move.
Mustang GT: Avoid spins
In career mode when you unlock The Mustang GT, be careful when you put in the top engine with the top ECU. When going fast, watch out for sharp turns. You might spin out in a race; try to work on your handling.
Easy style points
Driving in reverse will give you style points. The longer you drive in reverse, the more points you will receive.
To do this, you will need at least level 1 hydraulics. Drive up against a wall and activate your hydraulics. Then, press the gas and stay up against the wall. You may need to turn sometimes to keep it straight. You should start to get points on the right side of your screen.
Get a set of hydraulics (level 2 recommended). Come to a complete stop then hold the hand brake. Keep on pressing Analog-stick Left and Right or Up and Down and your points should keep on increasing.
The final race is against Caleb (the man that tells Nikki to win, then she loses and joins your team) on a 4.5 mile track and 5 laps. However, he only gets up to about 130 mph.
Wining an outrun
Once you have found an opponent to outrun with, get in front of the opponent and get in the lead. Get as far as possible until the distance meter has reached its limit. If the distance meter starts to drop, it indicates that the opponent is catching up. When this happens, do a handbrake skid and turn the car around. Go back the way that you came from. The opponent will follow you as you are the one in lead, but he will take time to catch up, giving you an advantage to win the outrun.
