any tips for getting the PR stunt 28,000 points?

I turned TCS off and try to link drifts, but I tend to slow down too much while straight line drifting.

Hennessy Venom GT is fun to drive. No traction, ever.

I agree about AWD cars in this game. I've got an Aventador, GTR, and Veyron SS all modded to R1 900+ and they will walk the Hennessy and my R1 Viper TT. I mod all my cars to R1.. it's bad.

GTR is a monster all modded up... I don't have enough cash to get a Veyron just yet but just curious how that one is!

I just wish there was a way to test drive the cars before buying. I know I don't need a Veyron but I would love to see how fast it can go on the highway

Fully modded frs with stock tires. Just keep drifting around the main circle.

It's fun, plenty of playability. If you can pick it up for cheap, I say go for it!

Do a lot of near misses, wreckage, drifting, and speed. The combos will add up and they will automatically add some special skill points. Drift+wreckage= sideswipe, hard charging( full gas), Daredevil(3 near misses), theres a bunch that you can do!

I rented it for $10 for 7 days. Which was more than enough time to realize I didn't like the game. So I did not buy it. I may some day. But not anytime soon.

You have to use the car they give you.

Yea, I debate between aiming for signs vs the risk of hitting the guardrail.

This.

Would i have spent 60 on it? No. I haven't had the chance to check out most wanted but did play nfs the run and was turned off by its play. Loved the scenery though

I just kept it in 2/3rd and got in a few good drifts and close calls without crashing and finally barely got it.

On the freeway, I'm guessing?

Try it on Finley Dam, run up and approach from the outpost side of the dam, can't remember what direction without looking at the map.

I have been stuck there trying to hit 223mph to beat a rival, but I can only hit about 215mph in the aventador...traffic keeps ****ing me up.

Yeah that's a good spot. I hit it on the highway all the way to the left of the map.
