Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "cars.ini" file in the "cars" sub-folder in the game directory. Change the values after the "price=" and "nfsprice=" lines to "10". You can now buy all cars for $10 each.
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "cars.ini" file in the "cars" sub-folder in the game directory. Change the "mass=" value to "100" for a faster car.
Open the folder of a powerful car, such as the F1, F50, etc. Copy the "car.ini" file from here and paste it over the original "car.ini" file of a slower car in its own folder (for example, the Elise). This instantly gives that car the speed and handling characteristics of the better vehicle. Note: Back up the original "car.ini" file of the slower car in the event that you want to revert it back to its standard settings.

If you see a police car ahead, ram it to get him to chase you. Lose the police car and you will get extra points for a hit-and-run. Look for the dirt road shortcuts to lose the police and get ahead of other drivers. Also, choose to be the police in Hot Pursuit mode. You will get 25,000 points each time you complete one mini-mission.
Start You're The Cop mode in single player under the beginner difficulty setting. Select either the Crown Victoria or the BMW M5 (the opponents are easier to catch). Then, go to National Forest and catch the fourth and third cars. On the last two, hit the third one to make him lose control, then arrest the first place car. Immediately catch the second player that you forced to lose control to minimize the time to around 138, if done quickly enough. The procedure is quick but easy, giving you over 25,000 points if you throw in a couple of jumps. Then, restart and do it again.
If you have the Rear Mirror option on, you should see a meter (radar detection meter) at the bottom of it. If you do not see this meter, it indicates that there are no police in the current race. If you happen to see that meter at the bottom of your rear view mirror, be aware as there are law enforcers on that course.
When you are driving, be aware of the shadowed bar below the rearview mirror. It will start to climb with green and then red as you close in on a cop. If a cop is already chasing you and has issued a roadblock, watch the bar. If the strip started with yellow, it indicates that a road block is approaching.
Turn the "Speech" option on high in the "Audio" screen when the police are on your tail, especially when police may be present on the race course. Be aware that the police may say something about roadblocks and where they are, as well as what they may try to do to end your speeding frenzy.
On the upper-right corner of the screen are four star shadows. Each time you break a law or do something bad, you will get a yellow star. For example, a hit-and-run is two stars. If you get four yellow stars, you should beware of roadblocks, including the choppers.
There will be two objectives you will have to do to unlock two kinds of cars. These two involve clean racing. For a clean race, avoid hitting any object that inflicts damage on your car, such as hitting another car, a wall, etc. Hitting road signs, going offroad, or landing very hard on big jumps are excluded since those do not do any damage.
All of your opponents can be scared. If your opponents are directly besides you, suddenly steer towards them, as if you were trying to ram their car off the road. They will panic and veer away from your sudden move. If you are lucky, they may veer away too much, thus causing them to crash into an object, slowing them down. You can also do this to police that are on your tail.
You must complete all events in Ultimate Racer and World Championship modes. Complete Bonus Event 31 for both to unlock Super Bonus Event 32. Either Event 32 in Ultimate Racer or World Championship modes will unlock the same car. Complete Event 32 successfully and the Ferrari 360 Challenge is yours.
