Start off by visiting one of the nearby car dealers. You will have an opportunity to choose between two new cars, however only one of them seems like a fair deal.
Mercedes CLK 500 (#1) is one the cars you definitely shouldn't be interested in. It looks great if you take a closer look at the performance bars, however during the game itself CLK 500 handles horribly. The other thing that I should be mentioning is its price. Mercedes CLK 500 is much more expensive than most of the other cars, and its certainly not any better. As a result, you can skip this vehicle without any doubt.
Lotus Elise (#2), on the other hand, seems like an interesting deal. This car will satisfy those of you who prefer great handling to decent acceleration. Elise is not that fast as you might have expected. You'd have to invest a lot of money into performance upgrades in order to make it more interesting. As a result, Elise is not that powerful to replace older cars - Subaru Impreza or even Mitsubishi Lancer. Having this car is a challenge, really. It's your choice. I'd recommend staying with the Impreza.
Don't forget to pay a visit to one of the local part shops in order to purchase new performance upgrades!
Kaze will require you to complete following challenges:
1) Races won: 7
2) Milestones completed: 4
3) Total number of points: 1680000+.
1. Sprint - Interchange & Bond
You should know that some of the police forces may appear during this race. You shouldn't worry about them, though. The track has a lot of straight lines. Utilize them in order to achieve higher speeds. This will enable you to extend your lead. You will be encountering some sharper corners from time to time (#1). It would be best to cut through most of them. The final part is more difficult. You will have to break harder in order to pass through several tight corners (#2). Don't let other drivers take the lead. You wouldn't have enough time to overtake them again.
2. Tollbooth - Route 55 & Projects
This challenge is a rather difficult one. You should be very careful, because you might lose a lot of time during this race. Remember to activate nitro frequently. You will have an opportunity to use one the shortcuts located near the start line. This is not necessary. Remember to maintain a high speed. You will be encountering a lot of corners along the way (#1). Thankfully, they're not that hard. Be sure to destroy some of the surrounding objects. Thanks to that, you should be able to cut through most of the corners. Once you reach the industrial zone use the left shortcut (#2). You have to be careful, though. You might lose some grip for a second or two.
You shouldn't have any serious problems with the following corners, especially when you're driving a car that has some decent handling abilities. Be sure to use your brakes just before entering the tight right corner (#2). Otherwise, you would have hit the nearest building.
3. Tollbooth - Hwy 201 & Hwy 99
You will be encountering a lot of different junctions along the way. In most of the cases you will be able to choose both directions, because the sections are very similar to each other. Instead, concentrate all of your efforts on maintaining a high speed. You will also have to avoid quite heavy traffic. Don't forget about some obvious shortcuts (#1). At about half way through you will come across a rather challenging right corner (#2). Thankfully, you should be able to cut through it.
4. Circuit - Century Square
This is a quite challenging race, although you shouldn't be too furious about it, because the track is very short. Thanks to that, you will be able to repeat this challenge without any problems. A lot of straight lines await you after the start. You should be able to take the lead and maintain it. More challenging corners will begin to appear near the finish (#1). I'd recommend choosing the correct paths, so you won't lose too much time. Once you're on a final stretch use the nitro in order to leave your opponents behind (#2). This should secure your victory.
5. Sprint - Union Row & Ocean
You will have to go through a tight turn. It's been located near the start line. Don't worry if you lose the lead at this point. You should be able to take it back very soon. Once you reach the urban district use the shortcut located on your right. You will have to break through a city mall (#1). Don't worry, hitting nearby objects won't slow you down in any way. You should reach several challenging corners in a few seconds. One of them (#2) is connected to a long stretch. Don't forget to use nitro frequently, especially when driving through a nearby tunnel.
6. Tollbooth - Beach & Skyview
The first part of this challenge is a very easy one. You won't be encountering any major traffic. There are also a lot of straight lines nearby. Use the brakes once you reach a tight left corner (#1). Otherwise, you would have probably hit one of the surrounding barriers. Go through a long tunnel. Once you reach the industrial district you will have to deal with some sharper turns. You don't have to worry about them too much. Watch out for the police forces. You will probably reach a small junction very soon. Pick the path located on your right (#2). After that, you will have to deal with a lot of straight lines and a couple of civilian cars.
7. Drag - Ocean & Harbour
This is a very tricky challenge, although you should be able to complete it after a couple of training runs. Remember that the other cars will appear in the same spots, no matter how long you were trying to repeat this race (#1). You will have to memorize their locations. Warning! If you have some problems with the vehicle located near the end of the bridge try pressing down (and holding!) the right cursor. Thanks to that. your car should be able to pass through safely.
1. Bounty (70000 points)
This time you will have to collect at least 75000 points. It will probably require you to be involved in a 10-12 minute chase. The easiest way to achieve this goal is to take part in a lot of crashes with police vehicles. You may also try breaking through roadblocks several times.
2. Cost to State Challenge (70000 points)
You shouldn't have ANY problems with this challenge, especially since you're trying to achieve other goals.
3. Pursuit Evasion (70000 points)
You should know by now what has to be done. I'd only like to remind you that you should try taking down huge constructions along the way. Furthermore, don't forget about nearest hideouts.
4. Photo Ticket (40000 points)
I'd recommend taking down this challenge, rather than trying to avoid some of the roadblocks. One of the speed cameras will require you to score a speed of at least 111 MPH (180 KM/H). If you're lucky, you should be a lot faster.
This time you will have to complete two Sprint races. Both of them are VERY EASY and less complicated than the challenges you had to deal with before. It looks like Kaze isn't trying at all. I was able to win both races without losing the lead or using the repeat option...
1. Sprint - Diamond Valley
Start off by cutting through the right corner. Remember to use your nitro frequently. If you're in the lead, it will be regenerating much faster than usual. Don't forget to use the next shortcut (#1). You should remember it from previous races. Thanks to that, you'll be able to extend your lead even more. A series of sharper corners awaits you (#2). Concentrate your effort on maintaining the correct line. Use the nitro once you reach the next stretch.
You should reach a small junction within a few seconds. Pick the path located on the right. You will find yourself in the central part of the urban district. You have to be careful, because you will come across a very challenging turn in a few seconds (#1). There are other corners waiting for you at the other side of this stretch. Once you reach the final part of the race you will have to deal with several new corners (#2). Thankfully, your opponent should be at least 4-5 seconds behind.
2. Sprint - Stadium & Chase
After a very simple start you will have to use the brakes in order to cut through a left corner safely (#1). Be sure to take it at a maximum possible speed. You shouldn't have any major problems with the nearby corners, because you should know them very well. Use the right shortcut, located in the industrial district area (#2).
You probably noticed that some paths have been blocked. This will force you on using some very tight shortcuts. One of them has been located beneath the lighthouse (#1). Be sure to make necessary adjustments, so you won't hit any of the surrounding barriers. You will also have to deal with several challenging corners. They have been located near the finish line (#2). Be sure to use your nitro often. Thanks to that, you shouldn't have any problems with this race.
Kaze wasn't driving a very good car. You were able to see it for yourself during last two races. Nevertheless, you might want to take it back from her. You should be able to earn some extra cash by selling that car.
