Win every race under Gran Turismo League for the ending credits on the Arcade disc. Finish in first on all 21 tracks in arcade mode under the professional difficulty setting.
Escudo: Turn more easily:
Set the LSD as INITIAL 6 - Front, Rear 6; ACCL 56 - Front, Rear 10; DEC 10 - Front, Rear 56. The Escudo is a 4x4, as is the Imprezza. If you have a front-drive car, you simply set the LSD for the Front. If you have rear-drive car you set the rear setting. For a 4x4 set it as above. How much you put on depends on how you feel the car handles. The point is to make the car turn as quickly as possible. If your car turns quickly, it can straighten up quicker; and allows you to leave the corner as quickly as possible; putting your foot down. The LSD allows you to "slip/spin" the car into a corner, almost as in an uncontrolled spin. But before you spin out completely the LSD lets you drive through the spin. The turn is faster if you get the setting right. If you get the set-up right, you can beat a more powerful/lighter car when driving a smaller/heavier inferior one. If your car lacks straight-line speed, it can make up for it by fast cornering. Using the LSD you can tweak the car to do that, up to a point.
Enter the Gran Turismo League race events until reaching the Pacific League races. Then enter the Midfield Raceway event and to be awarded with a R*Nissan 300ZX GTS FedEx race car.
Use any car within the horsepower limits and finish the Seattle Circuit 100 mile in less than 1 hour and 1 minute. You have to run the race four to six times before getting the car.
Race and finish first at the last MR Cup race. You should win the car along with 15,000 credits.
Lancia Super Car:Win the Laguna Seca Endurance our times to unlock the Lancia Super Car, which has 685 hp.
Race at the Apricot Hill endurance three times. On your first two wins, you will receive a Viper GTS-R. On your third win, you will receive the Lancia Stratos. The preferred car for the endurance is the Opel Tigra Ice Racer. Note: The Lancia Stratos is for expert drivers.

Nissan R390 GT1 '97:
This car is obtainable in the Gran Turismo All Stars League, Laguna Seca. At first this car is a shocker with 351 hp, barely reaching 250 km per hour (approximately 156 mph) and handling like it is driving on ice, but it is worth quite a bit. Use the following settings to get it to hit 400+ km per hour (approximately 250+ mph), awesome acceleration, and an outstanding grip. Turbo Kit Stage 4, Computer chip, Port Grinding, Engine Balancing, -Racing Slicks (Super Soft), Gearbox (fully customized service), Weight Reduction Stage 3, Traction Control, Active Stability Control.

Go to the Subaru used car dealership to get the Impreza 22B or to the Mitsubishi used car dealership to get the different colored Lancer. Both cars can be found near the end of the list.

Purchase a good used car and enter the expert race on the event synthesizer. Race it until day 10. You should have over $111,000 by then. Go to the Toyota used car dealership and buy the 2000GT.

Pop a wheelie:
This trick only works with Nissan 180SX drag car. Set rear downforce to the highest setting, front downforce to lowest, and rear height to lowest. Set the gearbox settings to wide, and tires to hard on front and rear. Go to Laguna Seca race and leave the track. Drive as fast as possible. If you have enough speed, your car should get on its rear wheels, accelerate very fast, and go over 635 km/h.
You can do a stroke/bore up on the Austin Mini as well as the Skylines.

Gold B: Spoon S2000 (J)
Gold A: Dodge Concept Car (red)

Gold S: Toyota GT-ONE Race Car ' 99
It is not possible to set record times on the simulation disc. The only way to set record times for a track is on the Arcade disc in time trial mode.
Drive 470 kph:
Get an S license, select arcade mode, and go to Motor Sport Land. Get your 180SX Drag (not the Skiline drag) -- it weighs under a ton. Go to the corner after the hill. Go flat tack so the reverse sign appears, and drive straight into the hill. You will go through it and just keep going (it will say off course). You will not be able to go fast if it is like your on the dirt. You will see mirages of the track and need the gearing right. This is why the map is so small. If you want to get back on the track, you must keep your green dot on the screen.
Better car performance:
On any car that has full racing gears, go to change parts menu and select "Gear". Make sure "Auto Setup" is set to "Wide" for more top end speed. Changing the setup to "Wide" will result in more top end speed. Move the setup to "Close" for more acceleration. The only reason to change the setting is from track to track. For example, for the Test Track, set it all the way to the right. For tracks such as the Special R5 track, set it all the way to the left.
Do not buy too many cars:
When entering the Special Events races, it is not necessary to have the same kind of car as the event specifies. (i.e. You do not need a muscle car to race in the Muscle Car Classic.) With the exception of the drivetrain specific events (FF, FR, MR, 4WD) and the Tuned/NA races, as long as your car meets the horsepower requirements, you do not need the kind of car that the title specifies. Basically, pick the car that you like the most, and race all of the races you can within the horsepower restrictions. Doing this means you do not have to buy a luxury sedan to compete in the Luxury Sedan Cup, etc.
More car indicator:
When you want to buy a car and you are browsing, make sure you look in the right hand corner of the screen. If an arrow points to the right, click on it to see more cars. This also works with some special models. (Example: Ford has four special models).
Rearrange cars in garage:
Press Start when browsing trough the list of cars to send the highlighted car to the top of the list.
Using soft or medium tires in Endurance Racing:
You can use soft and medium tires in combination in Endurance Racing without using only hard tires for durability. This depends on the type of car you use (MR, FF, FR, 4WD). You can use super-soft tires on the front wheels of FR and MR machines while using medium or hard tires on the rear wheels. But 4WD machines should generally use medium or hard tires. You do not need to use the most powerful car. Also, the competition during Endurance Mode are rather feeble; most suffer from spin outs. To make the Escudo turn more easily; set the LSD as - INITIAL - front 6, 6 on rear; ACCL 56 - front, 10 on rear; DEC 10 - front, 56 on rear.
When you are racing in an endurance event it does not matter what kind of racing slick tire you use because they all wear down at the same rate. You should use super soft tires for the best handling and performance.
When in a turn, hit the brakes until your hear your tires squeal. Then, turn with the D-pad.
