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.
Depending on the order that you choose the URL races within a stage the following results may vary slightly.

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.
Enter the following at the start screen:
|L1, R1, L1, R1, Left, Left, Right, Up||Unlock Performance Level 1|
|R1, R1, L1, R1, Left, Right, Up, Down||Unlock Performance Level 2|

|L1, R1, Up, Down, L1, Up, Up, Down||Unlock Visual Level 2|
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.
The best car is the Toyota Celica. When you unlock everything. put all the parts on it.

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.
Take a Nissan Skyline, Ford Mustang or anything else with the same body shape. Put on any desired body parts, apart from "CF" items. Then, set everything that can have its color changed to a light gold. Leave it like that with no vinyls or decals and cruise the city.
Get Nitrous quick
To quikly fill up you Nitrous meter before a race, simply turn while holding down the handbreak and accellerate and you will do a 360, which give you 400 points. You can do this up to three times
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.
Hit an SUV so that it goes on the hood of your car. Reverse, and the SUV should be floating on the front.
Taking a nice photo shoot
Once you are in the photo shoot area, press Circle, 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.
Easy NOS recovery
To get lots of NOS easily, when you are standing still hold hand brake (R1). Next, hold the gas then hold Left or Right. You should spin around and create smoke. This should give you 300 points instantly to recover turbo boost.
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.
Press Up(3), Left, R1(3), Down when "Press Start" appears at the title screen. A sound will confirm correct code entry. You can start career mode with an extra $200. Note: This code has no effect if you have already started a career.
Going off jumps in URL races
Start driving slow to get in fourth place. Then, drive up in front of the third, second and first place cars to get extra points for nitro. You can use it when you are getting close to the four lights hanging on the bar. You will go off the jump and see a short intermission sequence of your car going off the jump.
Get to top speed faster
To get to your top speed faster, go into your garage then go to "Tune up/Dyno". After that, go to "Circuit" and select the ECU. Make levels 3, 4, and 5 as low as possible; with 3 the lowest. Do a dyno run and look at your speed. Compare this to the first time you did it. It should increase a lot, helping in all your races.
Cool Hydraulics Move
Going at medium speed, start trying to drive in a cirlce. Every half turn, press r1.. keep doing this about 6 or so spins, the driver will automatically go and do some sick hydro moves. The camera will also change positions.
Note: This may only work in online and customization modes. First, do a dyno run on your car. Remember the hp and torque that your car currently has. Then, select the setting you wish to do this to and go to your ECU chip. Set the last tree bars (located all the way to the right) all the way up. Then, try to set the first two bars (located all the way to the left) equally in the middle. Next, go over to your Turbo settings and set the last four bars (located all the way to the right) all the way up. Then, for the rest of the bars that were not previously changed, set them down one time each. Do a dyno run and your hp and torque should rise significantly. You can still increase your hp even more by doing the following. Go to turbo and put all bars down one time in order from greatest to least, except the last four bars to the right. Go to dyno and your hp should have risen every time this has been done correctly.
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.

Car drives itself
Come to a complete stop. Then, press X + R1 + R3, then press Right Analog-stick Up very fast. This may require a few attempts. If done correctly, the car will accelerate by itself. To stop this, press X again.
Press Left(2), Right, Square(2), Right, L1, R1 when "Press Start" appears at the title screen. A sound will confirm correct code entry. You can start career mode with an extra $1,000 and get the Mazda RX-8 and Nissan Skyline in quick race mode. Note: This code has no effect if you have already started a career.
Drive through wall
In career mode, make a car with level 3 NOS and turbo. On the road that the Burger king is on, go about 310 km an hour into a wall. You should drive straight through it. Your car will respawn back on the road.
Easier turns in URL races
Notice that before the sharp turns during the URL races, there are a set of numbers that countdown to 1. Follow those numbers to perfect your sharp turn into a groove to speed through faster. Keep accelerating until you reach "1", then slam on the brakes and turn. Once perfected, this can help you get through the turns with more speed.
Finding hidden shops
Look at road signs around the city. They often have colored shapes (yellow triangles, etc.) to guide the way to the shops. Also, look for street-lights casting a colored glow. This indicates that there is a shop very close.
Look at car in dyno/tuning
When you are tuning your car in the dyno room, start dynoing the vehicle. When your car is reving, use the Right Analog-stick to look at your car. Press L2 to zoom in and L1 to zoom out.
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.
Finding more races
If you cannot find any more races on your map, then you need to find all the hidden shops in the city. After you find all the shops, you will be asked to be on another DVD cover. Follow the star to get to the next level. Note: Use the shops map featured below.
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.
More horsepower and torque
To add more horsepower and torque, go to "Customize", then tune a car up to level 3 parts. Then, go to "Performance Tune/Dyno". Choose for example, "Drag", then go to "Tune Settings". Go to "ECU" and set it so that from 5 rpm to 9 rpm or whatever is the most the maximum amount of torque you can add. Do the same for "Turbo". Then. go to "Nitrous" and set the duration to 4 seconds. This will add both torque and horsepower to your ride.
Rain follows you
On some occasions when it starts raining, the rain will be raining directly towards you. When you turn around, notice that the rain is still falling directly towards you.
