Speed Kills

Destroy a Lancer while in a Racer  

Racers are the vehicle you drive around from the original game. They are the weakest of the three vehicles you can choose from. Lancers are the APCs that the Crimson Lance drive around. They essentially look like a tank with wheels. The racers become available for you to drive after you talk with Moxxi for the first time.

Once you are able to drive a racer, head on up to "The Ridgeway." If you haven't already, grab a racer and head down the ramp. At the bottom there should be a Lancer. The easiest way to kill it is to stay as far away as you can and shoot rockets at it. If you are being shot at, simply swerve back and forth. The weapon on the Lancer is direct fire, so if you move around they can't hit you. Once the Lancer is destroyed, the achievement will pop.

Not that hard to get. Just lock onto a Lancer and keep firing, so long as you keep dodging, you shouldn't have any problems getting this.

Or just park outside T-Bone Junction with the Lancer then grab a Racer and shoot the hell out of it. Kind of cheating but easier.

If you spawn a lancer then spawn a racer and blow the Lancer up you will get it to pop... kinda wierd but thats how i did it...

A lancer is the most powerful vehicle, with an Eridian like projectile. The easiest way to kill it is at comment #3. But if you haven't done the mission for it then what you should do is keep yourself long range from the lancer, as it will quickly wipe out the racer if able to shoot it.

I actually got this on my way to rescue Athena. There are three patrolling the highway on the way there. I parked on the side near that first "Y" in the road and watched them patrol. I noticed one was by itself, so when turned and was driving away from me I moved up and started shooting it in the butt as fast as possible with rockets. Took it out pretty quick. There isn't a lot of room to maneuver for you or them, so just remember to try to keep moving so they don't get a good shot on you.

At DezSnaker, the Lancer is not the most powerful vehicle. The Monster is so get ur facts straight.

Incredibly easy. Use the monster and bring the Lancer down to low health then quickly spawn a racer to finish it off. A very quick 25 GS.

I got this achievement by accident. I accidentally selected a Racer instead of a Monster and before I realized I was in a Racer, I was attacked by a Lancer. I managed to win the fight and then the achievement popped. I wondered how the hell that happened, and finally noticed that I was in a Racer.

How are you people spawning two vehicles at once? When I spawn a new car, the old one disappears.

Nevermind, I'm an idiot and I figured it out.
