Jump Over Cars

To jump over a slower moving car or one coming at you, pull a wheelie right before you hit it. If you do it right you should still be pulling a wheelie when you hit the car you are jumping over and will not crash.

Wheelie And Turbo Boost

To pop a wheelie and gain some acceleration, double-tap the gas while driving. NOTE : If you're playing in Manual mode, you can also do this by switching from fourth gear to neutral and back.

Ride On 2 Wheels

To race on 2 wheels, double-tap the gas while turning a corner.

Back Flip

When you are going up a hill, do a wheelie at the top.

Side Flip

Do a wheelie while turning, then press in the opposite direction of your turn to flip on your side.

Honk Your Horn

While racing, press Start to honk your horn. The Humvee will fire it's machine gun if you do this.

Short Cut In Hawaii

Before the tunnel you'll see construction cones. Go through them on the forest side and it'll take you up a 2-track and off a cliff.

Shortcut In China

When racing in China, you will find a breaks in the sides of the wall. Hit the gas and cut your wheel. It will take you through the break in the wall and across a country road before rejoining the game ahead of your compitition.

Shortcut In New York

The shortcut through the Big Apple is on the third exit through a construction zone!
