Unlock the alternate paint jobs for 19 trucks to unlock the Monster Truck.
Get an "S" rank on all races in Mirror mode to unlock "The Crazy Super Truck". It is the same as the Super Truck, but has power permanently through the entire race. Therefore, you will not overheat and can always race with the turbo.
When hitting any type of hill or ramp, tap Turbo(2), D-pad in any direction to get the "Extra Turbo Boost". This is helpful for reaching the rings when jumping and to help recover the top spot during the race. It can be used repeatedly, and is helpful when you are about to overheat. You can cover extremely large gaps in the race even when there is not a cliff below you.
When you start a race, use turbo to smash the truck next to you. This may require a few attempts.
When using turbo and your engine starts to overheat, drive in water or a puddle to cool it down.
