Your right, i think... until you come to doing the checkpoint on Mount Haruna... you need the standard one, I tried a few cars, and that was by far the best for me, you need the grip to stay on the concrete.

I guess that one depends on the player and their play style. I usually like the normal car over Shannon's car for curvy tracks, but I was unable to do it with the normal one because of its lower top speed. I only beat it by less than .5 seconds.

Wait wait wait wait wait...in earlier Hard Checkpoint events, I swear it gives me bonus time for going through a checkpoint. Doesn't it? Yet in the second Hollywood Hills Checkpoint, it doesn't give me any What gives? I swear, this track is impossible without the checkpoints giving you additional time, since it only starts you off with 17 seconds on the clock in the first place!

Hmm, or maybe Hard checkpoints give you no bonus at all, and I just hadn't noticed up until hitting this wall with the no-nitro tracks?

What's up with the Leaderboards for these checkpoints, that list a number of the top people as having a best lap of 00'00"00...?

I used the guide for the Hollywood checkpoint... I know it seams silly but use the Land rover that Tyger suggests, its slow but it works... if you aim for the stopwatch on the right ( 3 bunched close together at the start) you can sometimes grab the one in the middle as well, 2 for the price of one ... made my life easier... That land rover is wide and grippy so makes grabbing stopwatches easier.

Its a good game, achievements or no achievements... but I do like the games for the achievements (im a bit sad like that)

if you played the beta version, or a demo (if there is one) and you liked it, get it...
I got mine from HMV a few weeks back for 30, and I got 800 free points, I dont know if the offer is still that good.

I was referring to the second Hollywood checkpoint, the one referred to in the guide as possibly the hardest of all the checkpoints. But both Hollywood checkpoint leaderboards contain people with a best lap of 00'00"00, as do many (most?) of the other checkpoints. Very odd.

Probably a glitch or mod because the top 20 or so people on the leaderboards for legend mode have legend 10 with no time played.

All checkpoint leaderboards have best laptime as 00'00"00.

It's not a glitch and it's not anybody cheating.

I think it's because it's not a race, I may be wrong but I do know it's definitely not glitch or cheating.

Not all of the checkpoint leaderboards have that as the best time. I just saw a few with 59 or 58 seconds. And if it isn't a mod or glitch or whatever, then what is it? How is 0 seconds better than 1 minute in a game mode where the higher time wins?

Event 5: SanFran Russian Hill (Destruction)

Point Goal: 300
Suggested Cars: Toyota Supra, Ryhmer's Chevrolet Camaro SS, BMW M3 E92

Description: This is the last Destruction Event and they make you work for it! Toyota Supra is a good car to use. You will be getting almost all long shots here, so don’t try to play catch up. Look at the beams of light above the cars and aim your car in that direction while shooting. This may take several attempts if you aren’t very good at this type of event.
Started playing Hard yesterday, all checkpoints are super easy to me and no problems so far until I tried this one. Is there any other hints or is this all about luck only? I'll get 150-250 depending how lucky I am. It's really hard to get those combos when you're not able to fully control them. Suddenly you can get +20 seconds but with my basic luck there's no such seconds!

At the very beginning I had difficulties with few Checkpoints, because I listened people about collecting nitros and using them at the corners. I decided to forget all nitros and collected only clocks, so I ended up winning every checkpoint event under the timelimit. This may be helpful for other players over here.

It's not a mod, but I'm pretty sure it's a leaderboard glitch. There's no way to use the glitch to make courses easier or anything, its just a glitch that displays it oddly afterwards...after I finished all the Checkpoint courses, I looked at my times and saw the 0 seconds popping up for mine as well.

Unfortunately, my friend's capture card is not working so I will not be able to post a video.

De Echte Topper's Gamercard
MIDAS TOUCH

Event 1: Hollywood Hills (Checkpoint)

Suggested Cars: Land Rover LRX, Audi TTS Coupe

Description: This checkpoint event has no Nitro power-ups. You cannot afford to miss any stopwatches, and your car must be going fast almost the entire event! This might be the quitting point for some people, as it tests your patience to the extreme. You may get lucky and make it on a few attempts. Otherwise, you will be learning this race through a lot of trial and error. You can try whatever car you want and most likely fail. There are few cars that can complete this. one I suggest is the Land Rover LRX which is what I used and beat the race well over the 20 seconds 4 times in a row.


I have done this the first time i tried it on hard and i missed a couple of stopwatches and my time was well above 20 seconds with the landrover.

Great guide really helpfull.

I'm finding the last few checkpoint events fairly difficult. I can't remember the names, I know one is a special Hackney one. Has anyone got any advise? It hasn't been difficult until I came to these events, but I have tried many times and I haven't even come close...

I tried almost every car to do the Mt Haruna checkpoint on hard and finally accomplished it with 24 seconds remaining. This video helped me accomplish that after a week of trying and finally stumbling on to this video.

Ugh I'm races away for accomplishing this on hard mode. Still missing the last destruction one in the hills map and needing a 300 score and I believe the other destruction needing 220 score. Those two will seriously be the death of me. =(

Am I the only one having a problem with this one? I have spent a good 3 hours trying this one and have only managed 4 lights and no where near the required fans. 95% of the time I fail before making it around the first turn and the other 5% of the time I make to the end of the 1st lap, but the cars seem to spawn up around that turn and take off on me. Any suggestions?

Just finished the game on Hard difficulty. Many thanks indeed for putting this guide up. It helped me pick cars on any number of races.

Must say that I am relieved that the game is over and done with though. Some of the races were frustrating in the extreme with AI seemingly only shooting at you and such. Crap like that can really break a game. Anyhow thanks for all the help.
