View Full Version : The 360 Flatspin - I Cannay Do It Pet

02-02-2008, 01:32 PM
Hi guys, I've tried various cars & places to do this but I can only manage about a 300. Now I know the best place is the quary at the top & I tend to find the Hawker Solo car suits me. I hold the X button to start sliding as I jump over & hold the control stick either left or right throughout the jump until I land. Usualy I get between 250 - 300 doing that, but my car tends to stop spinning which is why I cannot get a 360? Does anyone know why? Thanks in advance for anyone who replies, I appreciate it. :drunk

Where is this rock quarry? Is it near the train station/tracks?

I used the P12 and used the ramps near the wind farm. As you hit the ramp, press the e brake and turn left or right... you'll get up to 400 degrees:)

It takes a couple of tries but if you're going fast enough it works

I managed 448 with the starter car on the quarry just get a bit of speed up and hit the e brake so you go up the ramp sideways on

Same here, use the e brake after using Nitro and make sure your car is sideways AS you go off the ramp. I got 512 I think.

Nice, thanks for the tips guys. I was trying to do it on flat ground. No wonder I wasn't coming close :(

02-03-2008, 02:12 PM
Thanks for the advice. I still cannot do it, one of you guys will have to pop round & do it for me, lol. The problem I have is that my car stops spinning half way down I'm holding the analogue stick left or right, so why doesn't it spin?

go to the quarry as soon as you enter..go left then do a u-turn ahead is a ramp/billboard...hit LS ad X as you go over it...achievement unlocked

I tried that ramp, but in the end I used the left side ramp, and the other guys are right, make sure your car is nearly sideways as you go off.

Personally I don't recommend the top ramp. I recommend the first ramp you encounter when you drive up and right out of the basin. You'll come to a split where the left keeps on going, and the right is a ramp that drops you into the basin (right beside the entrance ramp). I recommend that ramp, and ya, you wanna do at least 90 degrees of your spin before you go off the ramp. Usually I do 350-400 degrees, once (no clue how...) I managed over 500.

There is a jump that hits the damn...its on the right when you go up to the rock quarry enterance...I got 400+ on that jump. Hit it coming down and use boost....sweet jump.

Plain and simply, make sure you are hauling ass, have a good stunt car, and start the spin before you hit the ramp, continue to hold the left analog stick in the direction you are spinning. Everyone talks about the quarry but I have managed almost 600 degrees up by the lead road jump ( I believe thats what its called) onto the train tracks. Good luck and send me a friend request if you need any help. Hope to have 1000/1000 soon

One pointer to add to the description of Orange and Blue.

Hold X down (and left/right on the left stick) while in the air, that's the trick.
If you don't do that your car stops spinning in mid air.

oops, thanks xero......that will help

theres an invisible wall i found in the demo, and it works in-game. go to the beach and as you are exiting one of the ramps to get off the beach, go right into the wall, at an angle, and your car can get up to 440 degrees max.

02-05-2008, 08:46 PM
Quarry - yes. Top - no.

rather than jumping off, turn left and drive down into it and then right after you pass the wall - there are 2 jumps here, one will get you a billboard, the other is where I got my 360.

If you start at the bottom you can get a lot of speed up before the ramp, much more than the top ramp, and remember to use a stunt class car and use the handbrake just before you hit the ramp, I found it helps if you go off the ramp almost sideways.

I also can't get this, I'll go back and try with all your advice.
Must try harder.

My friend got 791 at the beach and Ive done 650+ off the top of the quarry and get regular 500+. I use the a mid level stunt car, boost all the way up the hill and hit the ramp at top speed, e-break sliding so I'm about side on to the jump before I hit it. I have also got great ones on the train tracks and at the air field.

all you have to do his hit the ramp sideways and if you find your car only doing a 290 then dont let go of the e-brake hold it all the way untill you hit the ground and it wont stop spinning in the air

Yeah I used the starter stunt car in the quarry using the e-brake technique off the top of the hill and got a 400+ flatspin so it really just takes practice:) good luck

02-10-2008, 10:18 AM
took me a some time looking for the rock quarry beacause its not shown on the map but once i found it i got my 360 flatspin and my barel roll thanks guys for the tip.

Short wheel base cars have a quicker turning circle
I used the stunt car that looks like an MR2 at the quarry top and got 681
Dont use a long or wide or heavy car !

Some one tapped me while going over a normal ramp and i ended up doing a 530 =/

02-11-2008, 09:07 AM
i got 400+ on the beach, its easy just get a decent stunt car, a fair bit of speed and make sure your car is sideways on the ramp when taking off, with plenty of speed and it will just keep going pretty rapid.

02-11-2008, 10:10 AM
yea i got bout 400 of the big ramp not sure what its called sorry but i think some users named it.

03-12-2008, 06:57 PM
i know there is this really easy spot to do it back in the mountains or whatever

Managed 1140 degrees off the jump near the quarry down to the dam. Rear end clipped the wall as I jumped and spun the car insanely. Anyone else pulled off a 1000 degree plus flatspin?

03-15-2008, 10:18 AM
I was messing around at mountains and saw quarry entrance.
I was like "hey, let's flat spin"
When I was turning my Ikusa GT Samurai (lol) to flat spin at entry big ramp, some guy sideswiped me and I got like 800 degree spin.

03-18-2008, 11:07 AM
there is also an easy place to do a flat spin at the super jump on near the railway track goes near the petrol station. This will easily allow you to build up enough nitro aided speed to easily do the flat spin of above 360.
