NFS versions of cars
When you are at the car selection screen in multi-player mode, scroll all they way over until you reach the Lotus Elise again. However this one will not be unlocked. Look at the names of the cars scrolling on the top and you will notice the letters NFS before their proper names. This indicates that they are the Need For Speed editions of the regular cars. The NFS cars are more powerful than the regular cars with lower 0-60 times, higher top speed, and enhanced suspension. The downside is that they cost twice to unlock than their regular versions.
Catch person easily
Note: This works well when using the Pursuit Elino. If you want to catch a person in a car, use this three step process. First, do not turn on the siren. Second, catch up and get to the side of the car that you want to give a ticket to. Finally, smash into them and turn on the siren. This should put them into the wall and stop them by putting your car like the top of a "T" to the other car. Note: If you have the siren on earlier than the third step, then the opponent will drive faster and it is more difficult.
More distance between the police
After the police are on your tail, flip a U-turn by pressing [Space] (E-Brake) so you are heading right for them. Once you pass them, they will also turn around. Flip another U-turn and quickly accelerate. Flipping the U-turn takes the police more time, and will give you a couple more seconds to get ahead of them.
Country Woods shortcut
There is a shortcut in the Country Woods track that can save 18 seconds on your time. It is located where the fence ends near a lot of trees.
When you are at the split roads, stay to the right. A wooden passage will be visiable at the second split. Use the hand brake and turn into it. Then drive straight. You then have to go left and then straight. After that, turn right.
