http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/s1.jpg Airborne 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Get the car airborne for 1 second

There are various ways to get a car airborne for one second, get involved in a major crash that sends you flying through the air or hit a Demolition Derby track ramp at the right speed and angle.
The easiest way to do this is in a Pro Touge race. Go to Race Day (single race), select Pro Touge as the discipline, Mount Haruna as the location and Peak Run as the route. After exiting the first overpass, there will soon be a wooden fence to the left that runs along the track for a few corners. Drive through it to get some nice airtime. It is very likely that you will have to try it a few times to find the right spot, because the games registers a 'fatal crash' relatively fast after you go through the barrier. Also, always go for the Instant Replay and rewind after you have crashed, this can help unlock the achievement.
Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/s2.jpg Stick Shift 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win a race using manual transmission

Transmission type can be changed under 'Driver Assists' in the pre race menu. Shifting up is done with the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/a.png button and shifting down is done with the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/x.png button.
There are two easy ways to achieve this. The first is to start a Race Day event, select a short narrow track (for example San Francisco Short Circuit) and select a fast, but controllable car. Set the difficulty to 'Basic', 'Grid position' to 'Front' and the number of laps to one. This way you are ensured of a first place start. The narrow track will help you to block off opponents. Don't try this when you are new to GRID and the racing genre, get familiar with the game and the racing style and you will soon know when to change gears.
If you are familiar with racing games and want to get the achievement fast, start your career and do the first 'Driver offer' race in Europe, after this first race you will unlock a time trial for BMW on the Nurburgring. It's a three lap challenge and you have to set a time of 1:47:00 for the bonus. This is not necessary for the achievement, the only thing you have to do is finish. Mind you that this can only be done in the very beginning of the career mode. Later on you will have some opporunities to do another time trial in the Driver Offers, but these pop up quite random.
Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/s3.jpg You Again? 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Lap an opponent in a 12 car GRID World race

To lap an opponent he has to be driving one lap behind you and then you overtake him. For example your opponent is in lap 3 and you are in lap 4 and you are closing on his tail. After you passed him he will be one full lap behind you and you have lapped him.
This is easiest achieved in a Demolition Derby (in GRID World available in the ARL League). Opponents in this discipline will frequently roll onto their roofs or crash into walls immobilizing themselves in that way. The game will still count them as being on track and participating in the race. Lap on of these opponents to unlock the achievement. This can only be done with at least 12 cars on track.
Can be done in GRID World (career) and Race Day (single race).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/s4.jpg Sunday Drivers 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Finish a race at least one lap ahead of the rest of the field in GRID World

You have to finish the race with the rest of the field at least one lap behind. This is easiest done when attempting the 'Last Man Standing' achievement. After you have taken out all the competitors, finish the race and the achievement will unlock. Note that it will not unlock during the race, only after you finished.
Can be done in GRID World (career) or Race Day (single race).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/s5.jpg Hard Charger 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win a 12 car race starting from the back of the Grid

This achievement will be unlocked during the course of the career. If you want to get it faster, start a Race Day event and choose one of the disciplines that feature 12 cars. These disciplines are: Prototype, GT1, GT2, Demolition Derby, Pro Tuned and Open Wheel. There are other disciplines in which you have 12 cars on the track at certain circuits, but that is not at all circuits. Before you start make sure to put the 'Grid Position' to 'Back' so you start in last position.
Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/s6.jpg City Slicker 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Race in every city

In total there are seven cities in the game, complete a race in all of them. The seven cities are:
San Francisco – North America – ARL League
Washington – North America – ARL League
Detroit – North America – ARL League
Long Beach – North America – ARL League
Milan – Europe – Euro League
Yokohama – Japan – J-Speed League
Shibuya – Japan – J-Speed League
In the career all these cities, but Shibuya, are available in the first license category. Shibuya is available in the second J-Speed license events.
The race locations are accumulated over GRID World (career), Race Day, (single race) and multiplayer.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/s7.jpg Road Block 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Be involved in a 3 car pile-up

You have to be involved in a crash with at least two other cars. The easiest to achieve this is not to brake for the first corner and plow your car into the pack of cars going into the turn. Whether you deliberately go after this achievement or not, it is one you will unlock with relative ease.
Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/s8.jpg 1st and 2nd at Global 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Get a 2-1 at International Level

After accumulating 1.000.000 reputation points in GRID World (career), you will unlock the six events of the Global License. Enter an event that your team mate is specialised in and finish 1st and 2nd in the overall classification. Finishing in 1st and 2nd in just one race is not enough, you have to be in the top two positions at the end of the event. Also, winning the Le Mans 24 Hours race with your team mate being 2nd, does not count, even though these races are designated as global events.
Can only be done in GRID World (career).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/s9.jpg Combo King 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Get a x50 Drift Multiplier

Every time you score a 'Great Drift' in a drift race you get another multiplier. This means you have to score 49 'Great Drifts' to get the achievement. Make sure you do not lose your combo, by making small drifts on the straights of the circuit you are driving on. These may not add to your multiplier, but they ensure you keep your combo.
To get a x50 multiplayer in a Drift event you will need to be able to balance the gas and the steering in just the right way. If you spin out, you will lose your combo and the same thing will most likely happen if you quit a drift before the end of the corner, because you were not driving fast enough.
The tracks and cars on/with which to accomplish this are really dependent on your personal preferences. Two good tracks are the Okutama Drift Circuit, which is wide and does not have long straights, or the Yokohama Freestyle tracks. These let you decide your own route.
Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/s10.jpg Keep Drifting 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Drift your car for 5 seconds

To drift your car for five seconds you will need a delicate balance between angle and speed. If you go to slow or if the angle is too low, the drift will stop, if you go to fast or the angle is too high, chances are that you will spin out or go through the corner very fast. Play with the throttle and steering to get the ideal speed and angle, it might require a bit of practice.
Two good tracks to get this achievement on are the Okutama Drift Circuit, which has a lot of long and winding corners, and the Long Beach Classic Circuit, which features one long 360 degrees corner. On both tracks it is possible to get a drift of at least six seconds.
Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/11.jpg Keep Rolling 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Roll your car twenty times

This achievement is accumulative, every time you roll you car it is added to the total. After you have made 20 rolls, the achievement will unlock. If you roll your car and restart the race, the roll will still count. So don't hesitate to restart to save your race position. Using a Flashback will cause the roll not to count.
On the Washington circuits there are a lot of tire stacks that stick out onto the circuit, if you hit one of these it will likely send you flying (and rolling) through the air. If you do a one lap race on the short circuit, you can easily score about four rolls in one race.
Rolls are accumulated over GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/12.jpg Speed Demon 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Reach 200mph in any car in a GRID World race

You have to drive over 200mph during a race. The description says it has to be done during a GRID World (career) race, but it can also be done during a Race Day (single race) and multiplayer race.
The easiest way to do this is in a Race Day race. Select the ’24 Hours of Le Mans’ as discipline and choose one of the LMP1 cars (Audi R10 TDI, Courage LC70 or Creaton CA06/H-Judd), these are the fastest in the game. The only track available in this discipline is Le Mans.
Start the race and take it easy in the first few corners. After about 1.2 miles you will get onto the first long straight, put the pedal to the metal and you will be driving 200mph in no time.
Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single player) and multiplayer.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/13.jpg Spin & Win 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete a 360º spin and still win the race

During a race perform a full spin and win the race. You will at some point during a race spin out and make a full turn, the only thing left then is to get back to the front of the pack. If you want to do it an easy way, start a race from Race Day and put the difficulty to Basic, this way you will not have to many trouble catching up with the leader of the race. Make sure you set the lap count high enough to enable yourself to recover. A minimum of five laps to be safe is recommended.
Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/14.jpg Gentleman Driver 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win an entire GRID World Event without making contact with other cars

You have to win an event without touching any of the other cars. This is not just winning a race, but an entire event, that can consist of multiple races. Drift and Touge discplines do not count for this achievement and neither do the Head 2 Head and Le Mans races.
The easiest way to get this achievement is to choose the Pro Tuned Dunlop Spa Challenge in the Euro R License. This event consists of one three lap race on the circuit of Spa Francorchamps. This is a wide track and because it is a one race event the chances of bumping into another car are lower than with a full blown multi race event.
Set the difficulty to Basic and start the race. During the race, take it easy and overtake the competition one car at a time. The three laps will cost you about 6 - 6,5 minutes so there is plenty of time. Use a flashback if you happen to make contact with another car.
Can only be done in GRID World (career).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/15.jpg Back To Front 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Cross the finish line in first place in reverse

In a race, cross the finish line in reverse, finishing in first place. To pull this off you need to have a solid lead of at least five seconds. It is recommended to have a lead of at least ten seconds to be hundred percent safe. Just before the finish line press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/b.png to use the handbrake and flip the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/ls.png either left or right to make a turn of 180 degrees. After you have completed your turn use http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/lt.png to switch into reverse gear and drive across the finish line in reverse.
Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/16.jpg Corporate Power 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Fill all your sponsor slots

After you accumulate your first €60.000 (amounts in dollars and pounds are different) in your career you will be able to race with your own car. This will also open up the ability to acquire sponsors. You have a total of eight sponsor slots on your car. After you win an event you will acquire three new sponsors. To put the sponsor decal on your car and fill a sponsor slot in GRID World (career) go to ‘My Team’, ‘Sponsors’ and then select a sponsor for the slot. Fill all eight slots to acquire the achievement.

Buy your first car

After you acquire €60.000 (amounts in dollars and pounds are different) in your career, you will be able to enter races with your own team and car. This will not count as the first car you buy, since it was already in your garage and the €60.000 was used to restore it. After you win a few events you will have enough money to buy a new car. The cheapest car available is the Jupiter Eagleray MK5. This is a Demoliton Derby car and it costs €21.000 new and is available from €16.500 on eBay Motors. Enter the Michigan Demolition Derby on your ARL Rookie Badge to be able to purchase this car.
Can only be done in GRID World (career).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/18.jpg Gotta Drive 'Em All 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Drive every car

There are 43 cars available in the game in total. See this spreadsheet (http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=p1qS9wppGr9juwBMboG5-Xg)for a checklist of all cars. The only car that is not buyable in GRID World (career) is the Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, this car can be driven in the first few Le Mans races in GRID World (career) as a 'Driver Offer'. It is also available in Race Day (single race), in the Le Mans Series and 24 Hours Of Le Mans disciplines.
Cars driven are accumulated over GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/19.jpg Winning Streak 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win every race in an Event

In the career mode you will be able to enter events and each event features between one and five races. Win all of the races in one event. This achievement will be easily unlocked while going through the career mode.
Can only be done in GRID World (career).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/20.jpg Team Win 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Take your team to win its first Event

Unlike you would expect it is not about you winning an event for your team. Each event also has a team ranking, based on the points the team's drivers gather throughout the races of the event. Be on top of this leaderboard at the end of the event. It will be very easy once you unlock the ability to use a team mate (after unlocking the second license in any region) and hire a good team mate. To do this before you get a team mate, go to the Pro Touge Champion Touge Shield event in the J-Speed Rookie license. Win this event and your team will also be on top of the leaderboard, because there is only one team with two cars in this event and they don't perform well enough to top the team leaderboard.
Can only be done in GRID World (career).

Set a lap record on any track

This achievement can only be unlocked when driving in GRID World (career). If you improve a lap record, you will see ‘WR’ behind the lap time. Unfortunately, you cannot see the lap record of a track in GRID World. If you want to know the lap record for a specific track, select it in Race Day (single race). There is not really a need to select a specific track you want to set a lap record on, since you will most likely break numerous lap records during your career.
Can only be done in GRID World (career).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/25.jpg Driver for Hire 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Race for a team from every region

When you start your career you will only be able to race for other teams. Every time you will have three races to choose from. The top one is the North American ARL League, the middle one is the European Euro League and the bottom one is the Japanese J-Speed League. Race for a team in each of these.
Can only be done in GRID World (career).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/26.jpg Le Mans Legend 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win a Le Mans 24 Hour race on Pro Mode

You have to win a Le Mans 24 Hour race on Pro Mode, meaning that you cannot use any Flashbacks or restarts during the race. Winning does not necessarily mean that you have to get first place in the race, as long as you win your class.
To make it easy for yourself put the difficulty to Basic before the race. Do not forget to select the Pro Mode as 'On' in the same screen. During the race be careful, brake on time, don't overshoot any corners or bash into walls. The hardest part are the ten hours (five minutes) in which it is dark, this makes it a lot harder to drive, especially in the very shallow corners on the long stretches. It is probably best to drive a few practice laps before you attempt this achievement, track knowledge will give you a big advantage. If you would be involved in such a heavy crash that you are not able to win the race anymore, quit to the Dashboard and restart the game, or wait untill the next season for another chance.
Can only be done in GRID World (career).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/27.jpg Hire & Fire 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Hire a new teammate with a higher rank than your current one

After unlocking a license in the second category (ARL Pro Badge, Euro B License or J-Speed Super Two) your garage will be expanded. This will give you the opportunity to hire a teammate. At first you will be given a choice of three drivers to hire. From then on you can hire other drivers. To hire a driver go to ‘My Team’ in the GRID World menu, then ‘Team Mate’ and press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/x.png to fire your current teammate and hire a new one. Look for a driver that has a higher rank than the current driver and hire him.
Can only be done in GRID World (career).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/28.jpg Le Mans Rookie 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete your first Le Mans 24 hour race

After each season (each season lasts four events) there will be the opportunity to race at the Le Mans 24 hour race. You will automatically see it pop up when you select ‘Race Events’ from the GRID World menu when the time is there. For this achievement you need to simply complete the race, no matter in what position, what the state of your car is at the end of the race or whether you are driving for your own or another team. The timer is set at 24 hours, but it is actually just 12 minutes of racing. You can also do this by firing up a 24 Hours Of Le Mans race in Race Day (single race).
Can be done in GRID World (career) and Race Day (single race).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/29.jpg When Will I Be Famous? 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Get onto a Hall of Fame Leaderboard

Every event in the career mode has a Hall of Fame, this leaderboard shows the five drivers with the most victories in that specific event. These drivers are fictional and their wins will not go up. In order to get onto the leaderboard you have to equal the amount of wins of the nr. 5 on the leaderboard.
The easiest leaderboard to get on is the Classic Muscle Bilstein Festival Milano event in the Euro League. This event is on the bottom left of the Euro R License events and is available without having to buy an extra car.
The nr. 5 on the leaderboard has two victories, so you will have to win the event twice to get onto the leaderboard. The event itself has two races.
Can only be done in GRID World (career).

Win 5 ranked Xbox Live races

Go online and win five ranked matches, simple as that. There is no real system to have an easy race, given the voting system in GRID. But you can get the achievement pretty easily by racing focused and trying to avoid the onslaught in the first corner.
Can only be done in ranked multiplayer.

Drive a total of 1000 miles

Drive 1000 miles. You will most likely attain this when you are almost through the career, if you don't do a lot of single races/multiplayer. If you want to get it quick, don’t skip the Le Mans races at the end of each season, these add about 20-30 miles to your total within one race.
Miles driven are accumulated over GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/34.jpg High Mileage 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Drive 750 miles in a single car

This achievement is similar to 'Short Haul' and 'Long Haul' but this time you have to drive the 750 miles with just one car. A good option is the Audi R10 TDI, purchase this as early on as possible and do your Le Mans races with it. This way you will build up a nice amount of miles while completing GRID World (career). Once you have completed the career, you can do Race Day (single race) races with the car, use it as much as possible online or redo career events. This way the achievement should come with little pain.

Top the Driver Leaderboard

The Driver Leaderboard is comprised of the 500 top drivers based on the total reputation they have gained. As a rookie you start at the bottom and you need to work your way up to nr. 1. The nr. 1 on the leaderboard has about 4,000,000 reputation points. If you finish the whole career on 'Normal' difficulty, with automatic gears, all assists on, 'Pro Mode' & 'Force Head Cam' off, you will easily have more than 5,000,000 reputation points at the end of your career.
Can only be done in GRID World (career).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/36.jpg Top of Team Leaderboard 35 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Top the Team Leaderboard

The Team Leaderboard is comprised of the top teams in GRID based on the season earnings. Every season all teams start at €0 and the team that earns the most money throughout the season will top the Team Leaderboard. The nr. 1 (Ravenwest) earns about €14,000,000 (amounts in dollars and pounds are different) per event. This may sound like a lot of money, but is easy achievable towards the end of your career. When you have unlocked the Global License, have good paying sponsors and a skilled team mate you can easily earn €18,000,000 per event. The achievement itself will unlock as soon as you hit the nr. 1 spot on the leaderboard, even if it is only one event into the season.
Can only be done in GRID World (career).

Earn enough to buy a brand new Lamborgini Murcielago GTR

A new Lamborgini Murcielago GTR costs €2,100,000 (amounts in dollars and pounds are different). You will need to have a balance in the career of €2,100,000 to unlock the achievement, so this has nothing to do with earnings, just with your current balance. When you start getting more sponsors and winning more races and events you will get this really quickly.

Sell a car for more than you paid for it

To sell a car for more than you paid for, you have to put it up on eBay Motors, selling it directly will always give you a lower price than the price you bought it for.
It is wise to have this achievement in the back of your mind when first purchasing a car. Get one of eBay Motors that has a lot of victories and little terminal damages, after winning a few races put it up on eBay Motors for sale. Set the starting price at about 33% of the price for a new car, put the buy now price about 20%-25% higher than the price for a new car and let the auction last four events.
After each event you will get a bid update. Usually after the first event the bid price will be about 66% of the new price, after three events you will likely reach the new price and after the fourth event the bid will be somewhere between the new price and buy now price. This means you have sold it for more than you bought it for.

Beat the developer or anyone who has beaten the developer online

This is a viral achievement, that means it is not very hard to get. Beat someone that already has the achievement, you do not have to win the race for it to unlock, just finish higher than someone that has the achievement.

Win your first Head 2 Head race

After you complete all events from a license in your career you will be challenged by your big rival, the Ravenwest team. You will race a head to head race against one of their drivers and you need to win to get the achievement. The amount of money you get doesn't change by changing the difficulty and there is no reputation to be earned, so if you have trouble don't hesitate to put the difficulty to 'Basic'.

Be the last survivor of a single player Destruction Derby

Set up a Demolition Derby race in Race Day (single race) and put it on somewhere between 30 and 50 laps. The long track will take about 35 seconds to complete one lap, so even with 50 laps you can complete the race within half an hour. For the first 20 laps just race. During these laps more and more competitors will roll onto their roof or crash into a wall. After about 20 to 30 laps, only three other competitors will still be racing, they will not crash, unless you take them out. Start driving close to them and once they are about to jump of one of the ramps, hit their car in the side. This will cause them to spin and roll of the ramp, immobilizing them. Take out all three of the remaining cars to be the last survivor.

Win a Touge Event on a 5 star difficulty level

Touge is head to head racing on narrow mountain roads. There are two variants, the Pro Touge, which consists of two races, one downhill, one uphill, and there is Midnight Touge, which is just one race. To unlock the achievement, you have to win a Pro Touge or Midnight Touge on 5 star (Extreme) difficulty.
This may seem hard, but there is one track on which this can be accomplished relatively easy. In Race Day (single race), select Pro Touge as Discipline, the Nissan Skyline as the Car, Mount Haruna as the Location and Foothills as the Route. Set the Grid position to Front and start the race.
If you are familiar with the track you can easily build up a four second margin during the first heat and you only have to follow your opponent in the second heat. So make sure you have either practised the track a few times or you may already know it from the career where it is the premier Touge route.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/44.jpg Flashback & Win 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Use the Flashback feature and win the race

The Flashback feature lets you ‘go back in time’, not too much, but just enough to undo a nasty crash. From a race (when you have not just experienced a fatal crash), there are two ways to initiate ‘Instant Replay’ (the first step to using a Flashback). The first way is by hitting the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/back.png button, the second way is to press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/start.png to enter the pause menu and then select ‘Instant Replay’. A fatal crash will automatically initiate ‘Instant Replay’.
After you have initiated ‘Instant Replay’ use http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/lt.png and http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rt.png to rewind and fast forward to the point where you want to resume the race. When you have found this point press the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/x.png button to use a Flashback.
After using the Flashback cross the finish line in first place to unlock the achievement. You do not have to get involved in a major crash or spin of the track to be able to use a Flashback, you can do it at any moment of the race, even just before crossing the finish line.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/521/45=.jpg Full Rep 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn the full Reputation available in a race

To earn the full reputation available in a race, you have to have the following settings:
Difficulty - Extreme (even if you have unlocked Ninja difficulty, Extreme is high enough)
Pro Mode - On
Locked to Head Camera - On
Traction Control - Off
Transmission - Manual
Braking Assist - Off
Stability Control - Off
Also, you have to win the race to get the maximum reputation available.

The easiest is to start the first drift event in the J-Speed League. Make sure your teammate is not that good, so he will not give you a lot of trouble. The opponents will score between 200.000 and 500.000 per race and you have to battle three in total. Drive your lap and if you do not have enough points after the last corner, turn around, drive backwards over the track, cross the finish line, turn around again. This way you can start getting points again. Repeat this process untill you gained enough points that you are sure you beat your opponent.

Reach the Rank of Legend in Xbox Live races

For every race you complete you will receive a certain number of reputation points. Finishing the race will give you at least one XP point and you get one extra XP point for every person you beat. So if you finish in 4th and you have four people behind you, you receive 5XP. The number of points also depends on the rank of your opponents (you only get points for opponents you beat that equal your rank or have a higher rank than you) and you do not get any points for an opponent that doesn't finish the race on time.
If you quit early or wreck your car you will get no points, but neither will there be a deduction of points for quitting or wrecking.
To get to the rank of Legend you will need a total of 2,000 points, before getting to the Legend rank, you will first get the Elite rank at 1,200 points. An overview of all ranks in multiplayer can be found here (http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=p1qS9wppGr9j7kl_D5v9aNw).

Complete a lap of Okatama Grand Circuit in under 90 seconds

The Okatama Grand Circuit is a tricky circuit to master. There are many winding, high-speed turns, height differences and blind corners. To race on this track without any opponents go to GRID World (career), select 'View Cars' and get the Audi R10 TDI. The Audi R10 TDI is the car with which a time under 1:30 is easiest achieved. If you do not have it your garage yet, buy it before a Le Mans or Prototype race, it costs $15,000,000 when buying it new.
Take enough time to master the track, one section at the time, in the end it should be possible to drive under 1:30.

Set the grid position to back and difficulty to basic. Put the lap count at somewhere between three and five to give yourself enough time to overtake the competition without crashing into them.

Thats awesome that you got the game early but just as a heads up i got my RSV2 achievement guide locked when i posted it like that. Even though i just wanted to construct the structure and what not, It got locked down because i didn't have descriptions on how to obtain each achievement posted yet. Just a heads up.

regarding the online achievements elite and legend ranks... its worked out on points, by the looks of it you can only gain points, although losing normally gets you zero points,2 player race if your the same rank you get 2 or 3 points a race, for every 10 points you get a star, after 3 stars (what would be the 4th star or 40 points) you go up to the next rank, starts at jr rookie(0), then goes to rookie(40), then advanced rookie(80) and no-one is any higher on the leaderboards so i cant tell u how many points u need for elite and legend (hopefully will have a better idea after a day of playing)

also you can get the win your first race, 360 and win, and 200mph achievements + the miles driven as well online, the old school le-man track is the best (virgin mobile invitiational i think) i got 259mph down the long straight about half way through the lap, and you should get over 200mph just driving from the start of the race before u have to corner

edit again... also if your boosting this make sure to alternate wins, if your both around the same skill level you will make more points in the long run, bad news is i reckon the most points you'll get in an hour is around 25-30

05-28-2008, 07:37 AM

also for the stick shift achievement, do it on the driver offers, its in the middle once you have done 2 or 3 the bmw 320 round nurburg-ring your the only car on the road and you dont need to beat the target time to get the achievement (i missed it by 0.5 of a second) you only need to finish the race... and good job on the rest of the guide, i was getting worried about not being able to unlock team-mates i'm still trying to figure out this sell a car for more than you bought it for, i bought a few standard won 2 events no crashes and they only sold on *ebay* for the same price i bought them for, wonder if its easier with a certain car?

Thanks for the tip on stick shift, could be a very good one. Already did that of course, but I'm currently playing on our 'office' profile, so I'll be able to check it once my own copy comes in.

The power seller one definitely sucks, my cars don't really seem to rise in value :(

i just sold all the cars i had, buy the plymouth thing for 50k, do the bottom left event in america, win both races, and ebay it on 4 weeks, i set starting at 35 and buy it on 57.5, and it sold for 57.5(it said it was worth 29k or something when i was trying to sell it) so i really should have set it higher i would have got more cash, dunno how much that car u start with cost but i sold that for 55k as well.. tbh though i dont need the money, i've only done 4 events and i'm pulling in 16k+ a race in sponsorship, just gonna finish another 2 in america to get the head to head (and big sponsors as that nice woman keeps telling me)

also... with hard charger (win from 12th place) you do it in career mode, middle event on the right in america, in some crap lesseta or something, u start in last in both races, so just win either of them

MadcatNL
05-28-2008, 05:30 PM
Hard Charger is an achievement you can get really easy from the career, it will happen quite a few times that you start from the back :). I'm just trying to compile a list of disciplines that give you 12 cars on the grid in Race Day, so people can get it without having to look for the specific career race.

Be the last survivor of a single player Destruction Derby

Choose Raceday and start a 40 Lap Race on one of the two Destruction Derby Tracks. Just drive, most of the AI will take themselves out. In my case, only three were left after twenty or thirty laps. Just take care of them (drive reverse direction and hit them) and you`re done

I did this in the first drift event. In my opinion, the Nissan Silvia is the best car to drift, if you`re decent you should get this achievement with the Silvia in no time.

Win an entire GRID World Event without making contact with other cars

Easy to do on the European stage where you race Skylines on Spa. Put AI to easy, drive the first lap carefully, and then just finish in first place. This is the best way to do it, since you have to win a whole event withoutmaking contact. the Spa event consists only of this one race.

Just set up a Raceday race on the short Detroit Crash Challenge Track. Most of the opponents will take out themselves, the rest can easily be overlapped if you put AI to easy. One lap is about 25-30 seconds, so this should take about 25 minutes to do

Take your team to win its first Event

Race any event in a class, where your teammate is good at (go to the teammate selection to see what is his speciality). Set AI to easy and just race. Normally your teammate comes in second, if not you can just fall back and block the other drivers, so that your teammate can gain positions.
After the event, your team must lead the team-leaderboard.
It´s pretty easy, you could actually do it on your own in some events.

Once you are familiar with the track, just switch ProMode on. That means you can`t use flashbacks and can`t restart the race. If you fail, just try again after the next season. i recommend easy difficulty, for it to be less stressful.
The racetime can be 12 minutes, it does NOT have to be full 24 hours (thank god), it is just that ProMode has to be turned on.

Thanks again everyone for all the hints. I am trying out a lot of it at the moment and getting some more description up tonight hopefully. I've got some router problems, so no Xbox Live yet, but it should come soon.

I found out that Flashbacking actually does undo your rolls, since I was at 2 rolls and than had a spectacular crash with about 4 rolls at once. I used Flashback, but my total is still at 2. So Flashbacking does undo your rolls, restarting doesn't.

edit: confirmed and added the Airborne method given by shatulance. I will make an overview of contributors somewhere later this weekend :)

Are you sure you paid 14K? The lowest I have seen it available for on eBay Motors was $16.500. I also sold the Demo Derby car, started it at $8.250, put the buy now on $25.500 and let it run for 4 events. I got $ 23.500 for it in the end, bought it new for $21.000, so $2.500 bonus.

i cant be bothered filming and upping a video, EDIT* if you cant get it i'll take a quick video on my phone but it will be crap....* got to race day, freestyle drift and choose track d, go in the ae86 as its the slowest and easiest to control if you look at the map theres a bit in the top left with a few small squares beside each other head up there(turn on all assists and leave it on automatic), have a look around them first and see which 1 u think is easiest i chose to drift clockwise from (inbetween the 2 buildings no flags, but there is a little concrete or whatever block / box in the top left corner which smashes your car if you hit it... round to the right drifting past 2 flags then right back to the start )... i was going for the 50x drift so kept stopping and restarting my drift and still got 16.5 seconds.. i actually did it on the drift events in career mode though

ps if you hardcore you'll get over 5 seconds without taking your foot off the right trigger, just aim slightly right on the analog stick, and if you start to think your gonna turn too far right start tapping the right trigger instead of holding it

Earn enough to buy a brand new Lamborgini Murcielago GTR

A new Lamborgini Murcielago GTR costs $2,100,000. You will need to have a balance in the career of $2,100,000 to unlock the achievement, so this has nothing to do with earnings, just with your current balance. When you start getting more sponsors and just winning all races and events you will get this really quickly.

I got this at 1.400.000, im unsure that the brittish and American versions are differant, but if they are thats a first.

But all in all, great guild.

MadcatNL
05-31-2008, 07:46 PM
I'm guessing the differences come from pounds vs. euros/dollars. The game probably bases it on the country you choose or recognizes it from the console. My own numbers are actually in Euro's, didn't really notice that before :p

If someone would be so kind to translate the dollar amounts from the guide to pounds, I will add those numbers to the guide.

For the drifting, practice, practice, practice. I sucked at it at first, but I can now pull of drifts that are over six seconds. I found a good track to be the Long Beach one you use in Drift GP. It has a very, very long corner, that is almost 360 degrees. If you want to keep a drift going it is very important not to start drifting too much to the inside and from the start on it is a matter of balancing gas and steering, so that you keep on drifting sideways fast enough to continue the drift, but not too fast, which would lead to a spin or you would go through the corner too fast.

It says there are 45 cars you need to drive for the achievement. Now i am pretty sure I have driven 47 cars including Play and Gamestation so why is it saying I have only driven 43? :(

EDIT:

Right here is the p roblem there are only 43 cars on the original list and 4 unlockable cars which makes 47 yet you need to drive 45 to get the achievement? I swear I have driven them all so unless you unlock an unknown car with another achievement or something I have no clue what is wrong.

You get 5 more bonus cars after completing all career events.However they are the same cars that are already in the game just with a different livery on it.

Mine is Arata Matsui. He is Pro and specialises in Pro Tuned events. Cost me £655,000. Worth it, though. Got me a lot of advertising revenue but he does take 30% winnings. Most of the time he ends up in second, with me in first.

Sometimes, he may end up a little down the line, though. Not got achievement yet as I need to do another task I think before it actually lets you do it.

Win an entire GRID World Event without making contact with other cars

Easy to do on the European stage where you race Skylines on Spa. Put AI to easy, drive the first lap carefully, and then just finish in first place. This is the best way to do it, since you have to win a whole event withoutmaking contact. the Spa event consists only of this one race.



God this is pissing me off, I get into first place without hitting no one then my team mate comes second at keeps trying to overtake me and end's up hitting me, I do the Flashback but he usually hits me more than 5 times. :confused:

And like WTF, I get away from the others in like 30 seconds then my team mate seems to arrive behind me with a rocket on his ass and beat's me on the straight..

Win an entire GRID World Event without making contact with other cars

You have to win an event without touching any of the other cars. This is not just winning a race, but an entire event, that can consist of multiple races. Drift and Touge discplines do not count for this achievement and neither do the Head 2 Head and Le Mans races.

The easiest way to get this achievement is to choose the Pro Tuned Dunlop Spa Challenge in the Euro R License. This event consists of one three lap race on the circuit of Spa Francorchamps. This is a wide track and because it is a one race event the chances of bumping into another car are lower than with a full blown three race event.
Set the difficulty to Basic and start the race. During the race, take it easy and overtake the competition one car at a time. The three laps will cost you about 6 - 6,5 minutes so there is plenty of time. Use a flashback if you happen to make contact with another car.
Can only be done in GRID World (career).


Would just like to say that I did get this achievement by doing a Le Mans race.
At the end of my 16th season I got in the Audio R10, won the race by leading from start to finish and (apparently) did so by not touching any other car.

Pretty easy way to get the achievement I think. :woop:

Moreover, they will have re-adjusted the "Airborne" achievement, too, to make it obtainable even if you stay in air for 1 sec, with the car flipped upside down. That makes it a bit easier.

Sure you didn't even slightly touch another car? I did it myself using a Flashback or two and got the achievement without trouble, also, you need to win the event, not just a race and make sure you do it in the career.

@HAK, sorry mate, but Panucci was still participating in the game, so no offside ;). A player can't place himself out of play.

Edit: guide is practically done, just working on the MP ranks and I'm trying Thorpe's method for Full Rep.

For Back to Front, I did one of the Driver Offers where it was just a time trial. The bonus was for hitting a certain time, but there were no other cars on the track. I just drove leisurely through my laps and on the final lap, turned the car around and reversed across the line. The Achieve unlocked as soon as I crossed the line.

I would just like to point out something about the online races. If you're in an event with damage turned on and you wreck, no XP is awarded it seems.

I don't know if anyone else is having this problem but for some reason, I can't unlock the 'Spin & Win' Achievement. I have done numerous 360 degree spins in a single race and still won with no achievement... I even did a double 360 spin once...

You set 'Pro' mode On/Off at the screen right after you pick your car, it's under the difficulty setting.

oh wait - you said race day... that might be your problem right there, AFAIK this has to be done in a GRID World Event not Race Day.

Much easier way for airborn achievement, if someone already posted this sorry for repeat. Go to quick race, pro muscle, dodge viper, san francisco, and grand prix circuit. But your starting position in back. At the beginning of the race turn around and go backwards. When you are going down the hill with the bumps you should get the achievement by your 3rd or 4th jump. If you wreck into oncoming traffic, just flashback until you get it.

This is directed towards Madcat or anyone else who can help me.

Achievement questions:

For the driver leaderboards Would i still get it if i did all the races in career on basic. I don't know why but i just find this game to be extreamly challenging, even on basic when i take all the corners perfectly while drifting and max my speed on the straight aways they seem to aways be right on my ass or less than 5 seconds behind me.

For the Team leaderboard does firing your old teammate affect your rank?

For the achievement to hire a driver with a higher skill level then yourself, is it overall or just the actual "skill" portion of the pie chart? I can't seem to get this achievement and would like really appreciate any help.

Can you explain how to earn full reputation in a race. Is it when you get the maximum amount of money from your sponsors?

P.S. Theres still no description for that achievement.

Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure the one about hire/fire just means to fire a Rookie teammate and hire a Pro one. That's when it unlocked for me. I don't think the individual category stats matter at all, just look for whether they are Rookie or Pro over by their name/region.

MadcatNL
06-15-2008, 11:22 AM
@ParkerTM you would probably get it on Basic, but you may have to redo a few events in the later tiers to really get to the 4,000,000 rep points.

Firing your team mate and hiring a new one doesn't affect your seasons earnings directly, of course a better team mate brings in more money.

For the hire and fire, wouldn't really now that, never had too much trouble doing this, if you want to be safe, just hire a really shitty one, fire him and hire a really good one, that has better skills in all the parts of the pie chart and a better rank.

Full reputation, still working on that one myself, I have just added a basic description, still trying out some methods.

Full reputation is when you do an event on Extreme, Pro Mode, Manual transmission, Lock to head cam, and all assists off. Basically make it as difficult as possible.

It's not as hard as it may seem, the AI in this game is extremely predictable, and extreme difficulty is nothing to be scared of. If you aren't good with manual transmissions (that's all I ever use) then you might want to practice in race day or something.

You can still do all the races on basic and get the driver leaderboards eventually, but I doubt you'll come in at 4,000,000 rep. You'll probably have to redo some events, which will give you less rep the second time around. I'd recommend doing it on regular at a minimum. If you're really struggling on basic I don't know what to tell you.

I think it depends how many people are racing I got 2 or 3 experience points when it was a two player race, and when it was 12 people racing I got around 8 experience points and the lower you finished the less points you get obviously.

No, unless it says so, so for example Le Mans on Pro Mode can only be done in career and on Pro Mode, so some require settings, but only if it is specified.

Complete a lap of Okatama Grand Circuit in under 90 seconds

The Okatama Grand Circuit is a tricky circuit to master. There are many winding, high-speed turns, height differences and blind corners. To race on this track without any opponents go to GRID World (career), select 'View Cars' and get the Audi R10 TDI. The Audi R10 TDI is the car with which a time under 1:30 is easiest achieved. If you do not have it your garage yet, buy it before a Le Mans or Prototype race, it costs $15,000,000 when buying it new.
Take enough time to master the track, one section at the time, in the end it should be possible to drive under 1:30.
Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) or multiplayer.



Did anyone get this in Race Day? I just beat the time in Race Day and it didn't give it to me.

You should be able to get both 1 and 2 achievements perfectly. Try them again as theres a good chance the game didn't register it.

For all the mile achievements, they can be done in GRID World, Race Day, or Online MP.

I'm not sure what the max number of experience you can get online but the most I got was ten.

Also, something about multiplayer if you beat someone higher rank you get more experience even if you get totaled. In one race I finished totaled ahead of two totaled elites (I was a superstar), and ended up getting two experience.

Actually, thank you Yemeth for the pointer, guide should be perfect, so no room for spelling mistakes.

@ShadowJade, thanks, but I saw the light :p. You get 1XP for finishing the race and then 1XP extra for every opponent you beat, so the max is 12.

UPDATE: THE GUIDE IS DONE! I will be reading through it once more later today and correcting any weird sentences and spelling/grammar mistakes.

Your acting like its a bad thing to point out spelling mistakes in a guide.

The OP requested himself that any errors be pointed out, and you wouldnt want spelling mistakes to ruin a great guide, especially when its published in the name of this website.

P.S. Full Rep is easy, just do the very first D1 GP match with everything set to the hardest setting, its easy to beat the AI because the minimum you should get is 2 million with mediocre drifting, while the AI will get a maximum of 6 figure points.

an easy way to get full rep using global head to head:

"i turned the difficulty upto max an all the assists off then went to the first chicane [where it would normally be] an used those barriers to block off the straight thinking he would be going a lot faster down there than he would at the last chicane and therefore a greater chance of wrecking his car...

as i was pushing the final one into place on his 2nd lap i got rammed sideways by the barrier he had just wrecked his car with, knackering my steering [so much so that i had to have full lock to go in a straight line on the straights!] good job there arent many left hand bends!

i nursed my damaged car round the track and got the achievement and the win :D"

You guys got any tip how to do this easily? I'm good at drifting but not in the cockpit view and with manual transmission. And in Togue they always overtake me because I'm driving more carefully as there are no flashbacks. Seems to be a hard one though.

In drift mode, use 3rd gear only, keep it there. You should easily beat them. Also, if you dont have 1 million, before crossing the finish line, turn around, go back and do the lap again and again until you rack up enough points. Do the first D1 GP in Japan (I think its at Okutama)

When you see the finish turn around and go all the way back to the start, go a little past the start line, then turn around and to the track again, once you pass the starting line it starts giving you points again.

Try what Gruntxskater said, and also, practice it in exterior view without pro mode, you cant just jump in. Aim at beating them without pro mode so you can restart and try again, once your confident in the car and track (i recommend the silvia or toyota ae86), it should be a piece of cake, literally. Third gear is the way to go.

Practice really does make perfect in this case. :)

Drift and Touge discplines do not count for this achievement and neither do the Head 2 Head and Le Mans races.

This is not true. I just received the Gentlemen Driver achievement after completing a Le Mans race using the Audi. Maybe a glitch? 16th season though so I don't know.

All you need to do is actually 'control' the car i.e. step on the gas or steer somewhere and it will register as you driving the car.

Easiest way is to buy every car, go to the View Cars section of the career mode and one by one choose 'test drive'. Can kick all of them out in minutes. (Porsche is via lemans race day).

I have miles on all cars, it says 43/45 on the menu's etc. and you can't just use the 8-ball cars to make up the last two cars. Unfortunately I only got the game a couple of weeks ago so I can either use no patch/update (which was glitched) or current one (which is glitched), grrgrhahgahghrhghahghrghahgahrgahgra!!!!

Sell a car for more than you paid for it

This is most easily done with the Ford Mustang you get given at the start of the game. Win the first couple of events with the car and then put it up for auction on Ebay Motors. You didn't even pay anything for the car, so whatever money you recieve will be more than you paid for it; and therefore the achievement will be you'res. A nice and easy 25 gamerpoints :)

How can you sell a car for "MORE" then you "PAID" for it if you didnt "PAY" for it.....So yeah this does not work:(

For the demolition dont even consider doing that many laps cause your gonna get screwed with 2-4 guys left at the end, so you end up wasting a half hour of your life. Set the laps to like 15-20 tops. Almost Immediately at the start a race theres a bunch of orange barrels. Just starting pushing them into the middle of that intersection. Once you get them just about all covering that crossing just sit back and watch the beautiful crashes lol. at about lap 8-12 they would have all be knocked out of the race and you can simply take your sceneic route to victory.

Wasnt my idea btw, I just added a bit.

In the career all these locations, but Shibuya and Le Mans, are available in the first license category. Shibuya is available in the second J-Speed license events, while Le Mans is the decor of the 24 Hour of Le Mans race at the end of each season (a season lasts four events).
Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer).

I don´t know if someone said it before, but yesterday I went for the ´Last Man Standing´ achievement using this guide and I also got the 'Sunday Drivers' achievement as well.

But I thought to myself it would be a great opportunity to go for the ´Spin & Win' achievement as well, cause I knocked my last opponent out at lap 30 and I needed to drive 20 laps all alone. I just searched for a big area, pressed the (B) button, that didn't cause me to do a 360, but pressing gas and put the LEFT STICK all the way to the left/right makes you do 360's for sure. After I did a few, I went back to racing.

And if you haven't got the hard charger achievement yet, you can select to start out in the back of the grid. In that case you also win the hard charger achievement if you win.

Then I thought of the 'Back To Front' achievement as well. Just like the 'Spin & Win' achievement, this requires you to have a great lead, cause you need to stunt and still win the race. Without any opponents left, you have all the time in the world, so just before the finish, I handbraked and drove the finish in reverse.

So take full advantage of that race if you haven't got all achievements. I already got the 'You Again' achievement, cause I did the career Demo Derby before attempting this one, but if you set up a 50-lap Demo Derby on Race Day really early when you got the game, you should be able to get all of these achievements (up to 110G) without much trouble in just 25 minutes:

Doing a 360 is too hard.

Doing a 360 is too hard.

To do a 360, build some speed first.

Steer slightly to the left/right and then immediately SNAP your left stick to the opposite direction while holding the handbrake. Once your car does 180 degrees and is mid-slide, turn your steering wheel the the opposite way (again) and let go of handbrake. Your car should swing back to its original direction.

This ideally should be done in one smooth motion, so practice.

Spin and Win achievement help

Complete a 360º spin and still win the race

To do the 360 degree turn, simply set a race to basic mode, and do the 360 degree turn before the first corner (Preferably), this gives you time to catch up to the other races witch are usually super slow on basic difficulty. If you have trouble doing this on basic.. you must be either crazy or really rubbish at the game.

you have to win the whole race without ever touching another car.

Yep, i know that, I was wondering if there was a minimum amount of cars in the race that you had to not touch, as in not touch a single car in a full 12 car field.. I have since found out that you can do it online with only 2 people. I got it just before when i was going for jack of all trades.

Beat the developer or anyone who has beaten the developer online

This is a viral achievement, that means it is not very hard to get. Beat someone that already has the achievement, you do not have to win the race for it to unlock, just finish higher than someone that has the achievement.
Can only be done in ranked multiplayer.

I kinda skimmed through the thread so I might have missed it if it's been pointed out already, but I'm guessing it hasn't because it hasn't been updated. You can get this achievement in a player match as well as ranked. It does NOT have to be ranked. I aquired it the other day when a friend of mine and I were playing in a player match.

I am trying myself on Grid at the Time and cleared out pretty much (~700/1000) while Playing the Storypart. I also managed to get some other Achievements thanks to this Guide (With Recordbraker im at 1:31.9x... :uzi:) but my Question is around the EbayMotors Achievement...

Where do I find the Option to sell a Car ? :confused:

I looked around but I only found the Option to Buy a Car. Maybe someone can help me ?

Hi, if you go into your GRID world and view your cars and select the car you want to sell, it then shows you your car at the bottom of that screen you can choose to sell you car. hope this helps

I see that the guide was never corrected. I've told the author there was a mistake years ago on another achievement site, but it was never edited in.

Win an entire GRID World Event without making contact with other cars

You have to win an event without touching any of the other cars. This is not just winning a race, but an entire event, that can consist of multiple races. Drift and Touge discplines do not count for this achievement and neither do the Head 2 Head and Le Mans races.

This is incorrect. End of season LeMans races do count for this achievement. I unlocked this achievement on my first end of season LeMans event in the fastest class. I was in the Audi and was placed on the pole and won it leading flag to flag to unlock it.
