  • Easy "Escape Velocity" achievement

    To get the "Escape Velocity" achievement, use a very fast light-weight car. The Ariel Atom 500 V8 is recommended. Try to get all upgrades for it, and equip the Powershot Nitrous customization. There are a total of 156 billboards in the game, but there are very few you can use to do a 200 yard jump. Look for the two circular glass structures on Gunderson Avenue North (almost in the middle of the world map). Both of them have a billboard and can be used as a ramp. The billboards respawn, so you can keep trying even after destroying them. You also will not get the achievement if you crash after landing from the jump.

  • Easy "Kitchen Sink" achievement

    First, attract the attention of the cops by breaking the speed limit, causing some property damage, or driving into a police car to get them to chase you. Then, destroy a billboard, change your car at a Jack Spot, and escape the police to get the "Kitchen Sink" achievement. Note: The billboards will respawn after they have been destroyed.

  • Easy "Sidewinder" achievement

    Look for the two circular glass structures on Gunderson Avenue North (almost in the middle of the world map). Do a 250 yard drift using the two circular glass structures to get the "Sidewinder" achievement.
