To an extra $10,000 in career mode have a Need For Speed Underground career game
saved on your hard drive. After the prologue you will get $10,000.
Pay close attention to your tachometer when launching from the start line. Grab
a perfect launch to gain a few precious seconds. When the needle turns blue drop
the clutch and hold on.
Nitrous and grip:
Hitting nitrous torques the chassis back, giving the rear tires immensely more
weight under the new acceleration. The end effect is that you will go straight.
If you find your tail sliding out or are about to spin out of control, hit your
nitrous. You will be surprised at how fast you will get straight again. This is
a great trick in combination with Speedbreaker. With the correct timing, there
is no corner you cannot take at any speed.

If you are low on cash, just defeat one of the opponents on the black-list. You
will get two marks to use on several different things. Do not use them on the
Uniques early in the game. Instead, use them on the middle or the left "Random"
choices. They should always come out to either be a big cash bonus or the
opponent's pink slip.
The best start car is the Cobalt SS. Use that car until you get the Eclipse.
When you win blacklist races, try for the three "?" markers. You can get cash or
the pink slip car. If you get their car, go to the safe house and sell it. You
can get good money by doing this, and get unique upgrades after you start
getting into the visuals (after you switch from the Cobalt).
