When you are about to flip, hit the nitrous. It will stabilize your car and you will not flip. When being chased by the police, open the GPS map. Locate the nearest orange triangle with the pointer and activate the GPS. It will then show a blue arrow and lead you to the Pursuit Breaker. If the cops are directly behind you, they will stop because they "died". However if you are at heat level 4 or higher, the cops (Corvettes) will just dodge the debris. Once the cops have "died" it will then go into Cooldown mode. Then, just wait until you lose them. There is a faster way to do this. If you go into GPS mode (after you have gone into Cooldown mode), there will be a blue-white dotted circle. Activate the GPS for the circle. Drive toward it and make sure that you are exactly in the middle of the circle. Your Cooldown meter should be drop down faster. After the little screen appears, you should be back to normal.
This technique will work very well if you have a muscle car or something just as good. Use it when the cops are really pestering you (especially the blue cars or Corvettes) and start to corner you against the wall. Enter slow time then crank it to the middle of the road to get free. This technique also is very helpful if you have a flat tire. It might be not as good, but it still may work.
When the police are looking for you but have not found you yet (when the map blinks red), back up against a wall. The cops will go past, but will not catch or see you. They will then drive away.
Use the following trick to evade a pursuit with no tires. If you hit a spike strip during a pursuit but near a Pursuit Breaker, hit that Pursuit Breaker as soon as possible. It should take out all the cars in the pursuit because they will be very close or all bunched together. Then, hide somewhere nearby if possible.
Note: This was done in a Mazda RX-7 at Heat level 4. When in pursuit and a spike strip is deployed, you can hit it and still carry on. Your top speed is only about 100 mph and your brakes will fail but you can still keep going. Hit as many Pursuit Breakers as possible and you should lose them. Use the following customizations.

Aston Martin DB9 (Exotic): Defeat Wolf in Boss Battle mode.
Dodge Charger RT Classic (Muscle): Defeat the 21st Muscle Car Gang.
Jaguar XK 2007 (Exotic): Successfully complete all three Turf War races.
Mazda RX7 (Tuner): Defeat Kenji in Boss Battle mode.
Nissan 240SX (Tuner): Successfully complete all three Checkpoint challenges. Successfully complete the indicated task to unlock the corresponding crew member:
Sal: Joins after four to six races.
Yumi: Joins after defeating Kenji/Bushido.
Colin: Joins after defeating Wolf/TFK.
Samson: Joins after defeating Angie/21st Street.
Nikki: Joins after defeating all three beginning Bosses. Before you get to challenge Darius, you must race Wolf, Kenji, and Angie in their new rides: Wolf: Lamborghini Gallardo; Kenji: Mitsubishi Evolution; and Angie: Plymouth Hemi Cuda. You will have to defeat them in the canyon, then the city. Both races are sprints. After you defeat them, you will be able to challenge Darius in his Audi Le Mons Quattro. You will not be able to switch cars before each race. Start with the car that you want to use for all four races. The car needed to beat Darius is a Tier 2 Tuner, because they are the best at turns (Canyon Duel). Kenji's Mazda RX-7 is the best car if it is tuned out to the maximum. However, if you did not obtain the pink slip from Kenji, then your best Tier 2 Tuner should be fine, as long as its tuned fully. Defeating Darius will take many attempts, but eventually you will get used to the roads and will be one step ahead of him, making your chances of winning larger every time you race him. Also, if you cannot make it past the first, second, or third race, try enabling the "Unlimited nitrous" code then hold down the nitrous for the entire race, except for sharp turns. You should have a fairly easy win as long as you take all of the shortcuts. If you miss one shortcut, Darius will take it and you will be in last place.
Use the following trick to defeat Darius in Canyon Duel. When you defeat Darius on the streets, you will obviously go to the canyon. When going against him, try to get in front of him. After that, keep yourself in front of him for ten seconds and you will win. This also works with all other Canyon Duels. Pulling away and making him fall off also works.
Get the Mitsubishi Lancer. Tune it fully for all race package transmission, engine, nitrous, and supercharger. Also, enable the "Unlimited nitrous" and "Unlimited SpeedBreaker codes" When you race Darius, drive a normal race but use nitrous the entire time. In the canyon, stay on the pedal the whole time and only use the brakes if you have to. There is one point in the race at about 63% where there is a wall instead of a guardrail. When you get there, floor it. There is a chance that you will pass Darius. If you do not, you will get about 10,000 points anyway and still have a good chance at winning. Activate your Blocker/Brawler before the race. While racing and coming up towards a speed trap, stop your Blocker/Brawler. Your Blocker/Brawler will stop, crash the other car(s), and drastically slow down their time. Remember that the peak Blocker/Brawler moment is just before the speed trap. Start a drift race in the city. Make sure it is not a canyon drift. You will see a red bar across the road that stops your drift points around corners, then there will be a green bar. As soon as your front tires hit the green bar start to drift. You will get an automatic x2 combo multiplier. On some races if the bonus zone (yellow lines on sides on road) is too far away, it will give you no multiplier. Once you have completed Career mode, set Samson as your wingman with Neville also in your crew. You can repeat any races you have already completed in which a wingman is used and recieve $750 for each race completed instead of the $500 without. This can also be used on first time races for maximum cash output.
The easiest way to break 1 million in Career mode is to start a Muscle career. Race two races in order to unlock the car lot. Then, go to your challenge series and unlock the Nissan 240 (last set of checkpoint challenges). Buy the car in your career. It is possible to complete the entire game with this car. It is important to start as a muscle career so that you unlock Sampson first. Race the entire game with Sampson set as active and Neville in your crew. You can break 1 million with about ten races left over.
Go to the Billings District, Downtown (tuner area). Go to the Mason Fountain race (speed trap race). Do not join it. Drive south of the race. While driving south, there will be a entrance to your right. Take it and you will go off a ramp. Once you go thought the entire shortcut, turn around. Look at your map and there should be a orange arrow. Race the car to any location. When you win, you'll get $1,000. Drive back to the jump and do the same thing again. The orange arrow should appear again. Race the car again for another $1,000. Repeat this as many times as desired. Note: This may take some time. In races where crew members are used, use a scout (Yumi if possible). If you do not win the race, your scout usually will.
In Career mode, choose the Exotic class. When you get to the Stacked Deck level, get a Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Neville, Colin, and Nikki should still have exotic cars. Choose one of them and do any race where you can use your wingman. You should get an easy win.
For easier Speedtrap races, activate your Blocker/Brawler before the race. While racing and you are coming up to a speed trap, stop your Blocker/Brawler. This will crash the other car(s), and drastically slow down their time. Remember that the peak Blocker/Brawler moment is just before the speed trap.
When in a Speedtrap race, use a drafter (Niki if possible). When you get close to a speedtrap, activate your crew member and draft.
When in Career mode, choose the Exotic class. When you get to the Stacked Deck level, get a Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Once this happens, Neville, Colin, and Nikki will still have exotic cars. Choose one of them and do any race where you can use your wingman. You should have easy win.
When you get to the Stacked Deck level and go to do the canyon race for a Lamborghini Murcielago, use a Corvette Z06 stock/custom to overtake him.
The easiest way to win Circuit Races, Sprints, Rival Crew Challenges,Checkpoints, Speedtrap or any other race where nitrous and SpeedBreaker are allowed is by enabling the "Unlimited nitrous" and "Unlimited SpeedBreaker" codes. Use them at the same time throughout the entire race. This will let you make sharp turns and drive fast with control to get ahead of your opponents or maintain speed in the Speed Trap races.
While in the Canyon race you will see that there are areas marked with white lines with stripes on the side of the roads near the big turns. If you follow those lines you will have the shortest turn and thus be able to win the race easily.
Enable the "Unlimited nitrous" and "Unlimited crew charge" codes. Activate your drafter (if in the crew). Keep the drafter activated from the start of the race. Follow him or her and you or your drafter will certainly win the race.
Enable the "Unlimited nitrous" and "Unlimited SpeedBreaker" codes. During the race, keep using SpeedBreaker until the end. Also use nitrous through the entire race. This will make it an unfair slow motion race, that is painfully long but a sure win. To boost the effects, enable the "Unlimited crew charge" code as well and have a drafter as active. Then use your drafter during the entire race. It is faster, but still painfully long. Note: This cannot be used in Quick Race, Challenge Series or Canyon Duels.
For easy wins at the canyon, use the following cars. Tuner: Nissan 350z or Skyline R34; Exotic: Porsche Carrera GT or Lamborghini Muricielago; or Muscle: Dodge Viper SRT10 or Dodge Challenger R/T. To create the car from Gone In 60 Seconds, Eleanor, start a Muscle Car Career mode. After you complete the first three territories (Kempton, Downtown, and Fortuna), a new territory will be unlocked. In this territory, win two races in the area to the far left (Silverton) to unlock the "67' Shelby GT 500". After you get the car for $108,000, return to your safe house and select "Customization". Then, choose "Aftermarket" and use the following customizations:
Body Kits: Body Kit # 2
Wheels: American Racing Shelby Razor
Paint: Candy Red section top row, last box to the right (silver)
Vinyls: Stock; edit color to black
Wheel Paint: Chrome, in the red section, seventh row down last color to the right
Window tint: Light black At the title screen, press Down, Up, Left, Down, Right, Up, 1, B to get an extra $10,000 in Career mode. If you entered the code correctly, a message will appear. Note: This code can only be used once. Go into "My Crew" then choose a crew member. Select the "View Car" option, then customize it. You can paint it whatever color desired, and because your crew members cars are not tuned you can buy them performance parts for free. Activate Speed Breaker. While in Speed Breaker, press Hand Brake to do a wicked turn-around. Use NOS while accelerating out of the turn-around to gain quick distance between you and the cops. At the title screen, press Down, Up(2), Right, Left(2), Right, 1. If you entered the code correctly, a message will appear. At the title screen, press Left, Up, Left, Down, Left, Down, Right, 1. If you entered the code correctly, a message will appear. At the title screen, press Down, Right(2), Left, Right, Up, Down, 1. If you entered the code correctly, a message will appear. At the title screen, press Right, Up, Down, Up, Down, Left, Right, 1 to unlock the Need For Speed Carbon Logo Vinyls. If you entered the code correctly, a message will appear. During some Super Promotion races the announcer will say "The little blue car with the license plate "NFS CARBN" needs to move his car or someone will move it for you". At the title screen, press Up(2), Down(4), Up, 1 to unlock the Need For Speed Carbon Special Logo Vinyls. If you entered the code correctly, a message will appear. Enable the "Infinite nitrous" code then go into Free Roam mode. Get caught in the spikes and use nitrous to escape the cops. Crash into anything you can knock down. Try to crash into a regular car. Instead of crashing into it, you will go through it. Buy a Dodge Viper, then build it for top speed. When this is done your Viper will top out at about 240 mph, and with nitrous at 250 mph.
There are three classes of cars. Each car has its own characteristic, ranging from easy cornering to well-balanced road performance. You must master each car class in order to perform well.
Tuner cars: Their strongest point is handling, with decent acceleration but slower top speed. They consist of Japanese cars and mainstream European models.
Exotic cars: Their strongest point is their top speed, but they also have decent acceleration and handling. Most of the cars in this class are from European companies.
Muscle cars: Their strongest point is acceleration and a decent top speed. However their handling is poor and such cars are prone to sliding. Most cars are from United States companies.
When a Canyon Duel starts chose a muscle car (for example, the Corvetee ZO6). You will gain speed but be careful on turns.
In Drift races, choose a tuner car for better drifts. Select the performance tires then set the meter to "Drift".
The Pagani Zonda is the best and most expensive car. You can make the car reach a speed of 270 mph. It is best in speed, grip, and drag (apart from the Wheelie challenges). As an alternative for drift and drag, try a highly tuned RX-7 (if rear wheel drive). To turn sharp corners fast, tap B while turning. This also works when using nitrous. When the Vauxhall Monaro VXR's handling is maxed out, the game states that the handling stat is as high as possible. However, it still slides when it turns but it is more controllable than, for example a Dodge Charger RT. The turning radius is a bit wide. It will hit the walls quite a bit unless you find a way to narrow the radius.
