Before you move on any further you will have an opportunity to watch a new cut-scene. Mia will grant you with a device that will enable you to hack into the police computer system. I must warn you that there's nothing interesting there. You can only take a look at your current statistics. You might as well leave this option alone.
Head on to the nearest car saloon in order to take a look at the new models. Two cars will be waiting for you there. I'd recommend buying one of them. Alternatively, you might want to ignore them and spend all of the current funds on the Golf's improvements. Personally I wouldn't recommend doing that, however the choice is yours.
Audi A4 (#1) is a typical limousine. You shouldn't be interested in buying this car. It might look great but it has some horrible parameters, especially when you take a closer look at the price of this car. Audi A4 has a very poor acceleration, even if you take care of some mechanical improvements. You'd have to invest a lot of cash into that car in order to make it useful. In my personal opinion it would just be a waste of your money, especially since the other cars are much more interesting.
Mitsubishi Eclipse (#2), on the other hand, is a wonderful car. I'd strongly recommend buying it and investing a lot of money into a complex tuning. Eclipse is much cheaper than the Audi A4. Furthermore, it offers a better handling, it's also a little bit faster. If you'll be choosing the right unique parts (after defeating drivers from the Black List) you might get to the 9-10th spot in that car, so it's also a good offer for those players who prefer staying with one car than buying a lot of different vehicles.
Next up, you should pay a visit to one of the surrounding shops in order to buy new parts. You might also consider selling previous cars - Volkswagen Golf and the Lexus IS 300 from Taz (that is... if you won it). Don't forget to sell their parts before you get rid off the vehicles.
Vic is next on your list. Here is the list of his requirements:
1) Races won: 4
2) Milestones completed: 3
3) Total number of points: 100000+.
1. Tollbooth - Hwy 99 & Highlands
You won't have any problems with this challenge. The computer will grant you with a huge amount of time. Nevertheless, you should be more careful in some places. There's a difficult right corner just before the first checkpoint (#1). Bear in mind that you will be going up the hill so the visibility is going to be heavily reduced. After reaching the junction I'd recommend choosing the left path. Change it once you reach the tunnel. At the end of this race you will be able to use the forest shortcut (#2). Thanks to that you'll earn a decent amount of seconds.
2. Tollbooth - Hwy 4 & Forest Green
Just as before, you shouldn't have any problems completing this challenge. You will reach a junction right after the start. Choose the right path. There are some mild corners nearby. You don't have to use your brakes too often. Furthermore, you will have an opportunity to use the right shortcut (#1). Be sure not to hit the nearby rocks. The final part of this race will require you to cut through at least two corners (#2). Use the grass in order to do that.
3. Speedtrap - Diamond & State
This is your first time with this kind of a competition. It would be best to explain its rules. There are some speed cameras located in different parts of the track. The objective is to score a highest possible speed at these points. The values will be accumulated, and the person who managed to achieve a highest score wins. Remember that you don't have to be first at the finish line in order to win this challenge. The first speed camera has been located near the start line. It would be best to use your nitro often, because it will help to get better scores. You will have an opportunity to use the left shortcut along the way (#2). Concentrate all of your efforts on scoring high speeds near the designated checkpoints.
4. Speedtrap - Forest & Ironwood
You'll probably have some troubles with getting a decent speed near the first checkpoint (#1). Be sure to keep a steady line. Additionally, use the nitro in order to accelerate faster. You will have an opportunity to use the right shortcut (#2). He will appear at about half way through. Choosing the right path will help you to keep a higher speed. It would also be wise to remember this place, because you will be racing here quite often.
1. Trade Paint (11000 points)
The objective is quite simple, really. You will have to destroy or immobilize at least four police vehicles. It would be best to use the huge constructions to help you. Just as before, they will be seen as red triangles on your map. Be sure not to leave all of the police cruisers behind, because this will end the whole pursuit too soon. You might want to keep the chase longer, so that more squad cars could appear.
2. Pursuit Evasion (11000 points)
You shouldn't have any problems with this challenge, especially since you have a fast car. You will need to lose the pursuit within four minutes. If you're good, you should do it within half of that time limit. Use the huge constructions, you might also want to hide in one of the designated spots.
3. Photo Ticket (5000 points)
Remember to pick this challenge from the garage screen. Start accelerating, you must also use the nitro. The speed camera has been located near the mild corner, so you have to be more careful. You will have to exceed 105 MPH in order to complete this challenge.
Just as before, you will have to take part in two Sprint races in order to beat Vic. The second race is a little harder than the first one. Nevertheless, you shouldn't have any major problems with them, especially since you've been racing on both of the presented tracks in the past.
1. Sprint - Union & Hollis
You will have to make a left turn after a very long straight (#1). You must use your brakes, otherwise your car would have end up on the wall. Vic should be driving in a similar style. You must not let him get too far away. More challenging corners await you. Watch out for the tight right corner (#2). After you've taken it use the nitro in order to get back to the usual speed.
Sooner or later Vic will probably make a mistake. You will have to use this opportunity in order to attain the lead. Furthermore, you will have to defend it right up to the finish. You should concentrate on something else at the moment, because you will have to pass through several tight corners (#1). Choose the correct driving lines, so you won't lose too much speed. You will have an opportunity to use the left shortcut near the end (#2). It should help you to extend your current lead.
2. Sprint - Heritage & Campus
You will have to make a tight left turn just after the start (#1). You might want to cut through it, although it's a little bit risky. Don't worry if Vic manages to overtake you. Sooner or later you will catch up to him. You should reach the urban district within a few seconds. Get ready to take several corners. Thankfully, you should be able to cut through most of them (#2).
You will have to use several known shortcuts along the way (#1). You won't gain too much, but it wouldn't hurt to do it, especially since there's a low risk of hitting something. You will have to take the upcoming corners without ANY problems. Use the second shortcut (#2). It's very important, because very challenging turns await you. This will decide whether you'll keep the lead or lose it to Vic.
Try to stay focused while going through the right turn (#1). You can't hit the surrounding barriers. Maintaining high speed is also very important. If you do that, you should be able to stay in the first place. There are more challenging corners nearby, although they aren't that hard. Just be sure to cut through most of them. Use the nitro often. There's a straight road leading to the finish line (#2). Be sure to block Vic's car in order to secure your lead.
Vic had one of the most precious cars of the game - a Toyota Supra. You should concentrate all of your efforts on winning that car from him. If you pick the wrong cards repeat both races, so you will be able to do it again.
