Go to the bottom of the map by the crater. There is a speed challenge there that awards $40,000. A C-Class car is required (TVR Sagaris recommended). You can do it in about 1:30 to 2 minutes and get $40,000, which results in about $1,200,000 after one hour.
Take the highway to a spot near but not too close to an intersection. Find a racer and get them to do an Instant Challenge with you. Set the finish line just behind the start line on the opposite side of the highway. When the race begins, immediately turn over the center of the highway and drive past the finish line. Do this five or ten times and then do a race that is worth about $20,000. You will get a lot of money for the win. Note: This does not always work.
C/D class Saleens
Take a Ford Mustang GT Coupe and/or Ford Mustang GT Convertible to the U.S. Muscle Car Tuner shop. They will ask whether you want them tuned as a Ford or Saleen. Press Down and select “Saleen”. The new car(s) will have a sign that says “Saleen” at the top of the windshield. They will also be upgraded to C/D class cars.
Recommended cars for each class
This following is a list of the best overall cars and bikes for each class. Note: This is assuming you have the best performance kit for each vehicle without bringing it out of its class (mostly level 3). The first vehicle to appear is the best of the class overall. Others, such as the CC8S in A-class might be a better choice for long, straightforward courses. For the MA-class, the MV Agusta is better in all stats than the Kawasaki, but some prefer it because it is much cheaper than the MV Agusta and also because of its first gear being longer.
