  • Series awards

    Series awards (i.e. cars) are not purely random. Press X when a silhouetted car has the large black circle flashing under it to cause that car to be selected as the award for winning the series. Timing is crucial, since the large black circle only appears under a car for less than half a second. If you are too slow, the next car to get the large black circle will be selected.

  • Easy horse power boost

    When you get a car, change the oil. It will boost the horse power by at least 10 and only costs 250 credits.

  • Easy money with memory card

    Note: Two memory cards are required for this trick. After you have earned about 200,000 credits, purchase a car, such as the Mitsubishi 3000 GT. Upgrade it up to the max. This will leave you almost broke. Go home and save this car to memory card slot two, then return to the title screen and load your last game from memory card slot one. This will give you your money back, and you can now go home and trade from memory card slot two. The car that you just spent all those credits on will now only cost retail price.

  • Easy money
