The best way to get this is by selecting an oval track slowing down to last place, then speeding up and ramming the cars by using both the hammer and focus. the more cars you hit in a row the better, as this gives you both combos for extra points, and extra time on the clock. The clock starts with 90 seconds. Once you get to the car in front, just slow down and do it all over again. As soon as 9000 points is earned the achievement will unlock.

Focus Slows your screen down so you can avoid contact with other cars or walls. It also stops your car from receiving damage while in use. Once the meter on the left shows green, press X to use Focus. Refill it by rubbing other cars, spinning out, or wrecking into walls and other cars. Achievement will unlock as soon as it is used 100 times.

This is just a quick little guide if anyone had any questions about the game and its achievements.

Overall the achievements are pretty self explanatory, but just in case, ya know?

Enjoy the easy 200GS.

Good job nappster I didnt know how to make a guide and didnt really want to but nice little guide. I sent you a Friends Request on xbox.

Thanks, I just did it really quick, in case people had any questions. A guide probably isnt really needed, but either way it's there if anyone needs it.

For the hammer and focus achievement and Challenge. You can easily get them done in the first race. Even if you just press either A or X for just 0,00001 seconds it counts as one. You don't have to use it for a specific amount of time. Just spam the A and X button and you will have it by the end of the first race.

Even two green focus dots is enough to spam close to 40 times.

I got the last 50 focus uses for the challenge less then 30 seconds after I was told about my last count mid race.

Just to let you know just completed the amateur cup and had a season standing of 6th and it says your season standing needs to be 3rd or better to advance but the good news you can pick an individual race you did bad on and improve your finish to raise your season standing so least you dot need to do all 6 over.
