Faster than the Speed of Sound:
When pulling the wheelie code using the Escudo Pikes Peak version the car can go over 800 Mph as stated before, but I have reached a speed of " 1541.6 !! " Mph.(basically mach 2!). In order to do this trick use the settings in the 1.Equip highest turbo. 2.Set spring rate to smallest for front and rear. 3.Set ride height to smallest for front and rear. 4.Set gear ratio's auto setting to highest possible level. 5.Set gear ratio's final gear to 3.000 6.Set front downforce to lowest and rear downforce to highest 7.Set ASM and TCS to level 0 as you might have already known. Then when going to the test track go the reverse way around and stop just over half way through the first turn. Floor it and try to make it out of the turn at at least 240 Mph. If done correctly, by the end of the straight away congratulations, you have just doubled the speed of sound!!
Get the car you want in a series race:
First you have to go to a series race and get all first place until the last race. When it says Race #9 or whatever the last race is results save your game then go into the race and quit it. It will ask you "Quit Race?" go yes then go next. You will get your prize money and then you can get your car. If it's not the one you want then go back to the main menu and re-load your game. Keep doing this until you get the car you want.
