playthrough - in progress.
 
The other day I was happy to do some racing in FUEL.
Suddenly my game froze and my savedata disappeared.
I was already at 480 gamerscore and quite disappointed.
Lesson learned. Every time I unlock a new area or do
something worthwhile I'll make a backup on my USB-stick.

This gave me the opportunity to restart the game and document my progression.
I will be using this thread to do so.

=========================== RACE TRICK ===========================

I use this trick a lot if I want to go somewhere far away from a helicopter point.
start ==>> RB to Race Editor ==>> Create Race.
create the race near the location you want to go.
ie. near a doppler truck or vista point.
Then try the race and either finish it or cancel it.
Now the game will leave you at the race-location which
should be quite close to your desired location.

=========================== VEHICLE TRICK ========================

This trick enables you to use any vehicle you own instead of the default vehicle.
This works for challenges and races.

Start a challenge or race. Wait for the countdown.
When "GO" appears onscreen quickly press the back button on your controller.
Now you are at the main menu and you can select another vehicle from your garage.
You can only do this once per race. If you chose wrongly then you have to quit the race and do the race again.
Simply using the restart option from the game disables this trick.
