How to clean up defensive races after career completion.

Postby GT3x24x7 » 19 Nov 2006, 06:37

Yep, I stupidly finished my career without getting some vital reward tasks done, like winning 20 defensive races. I also ended up with about 60k cash, which meant a helluva lot of racing was needed to clean up the 'make 1,000,000 cash in career mode' task. I figured there was no chance to get these done, but it turns it I was wrong!

Here's what you do. Sell all of your career cars except one. It doesn't really matter which one you keep. Now go get your car impounded. That's right, get busted four times and let the cops haul your car away. This will end your career. When you get asked on the Game Over screen whether you want to reload your last save or return to the menu, choose return to the menu.

All that's happened is that your career has been RESET. If you go into career mode now, it all starts from the beginning - you do the race with Cross, choose a car, crew name etc, and you're off again from scratch.

Now here's the good part. All the unlocks you previously had are STILL UNLOCKED. All your reward cards, challenge races, even all the unlocked cars and parts in career mode. All that's lost is your cash and career mode progress. Now you can go ahead and get those remaining defensive racers and other tasks outta the way while you progress through the career a second time.

Sweet, huh?

man, i wish id known this a couple days ago...

do you know, if your statistics stay too? like if you have 7 defensive races done and you restart, does it add on to the 7 or start over from 0?

@BAS

As far as I am aware, you unlock all the cars from the other classes when you beat the career.

I did as GT said, I was surprised when I saw all the parts are unlocked .. you can tune up the performance to the max, from the start .. well, if you can afford them :)

I also seen how the "free roam challenges" work. If you completed a race, stay in free roam, select another location to cruise, go towards it, but don't enter it, just, spin around, make some donuts spins, and a rival member will soon come to you. after you beat him, or get defeated, I never stood in place, to wait for another one, I just, jumped to another race or safe house, and after finishing my work, I get back to free roam, and repeating what I was explaining upper. The cool thing is that the rivals, come quite fast to you, so don't just jump from an event to another. I just finish one event, making 1 rival challenge, then another event .. and so on.

lol!, how did you do that?! BTW, are these things randomly, or you have to do something particular, for the other crews, to invade you territory?

im gonna go do this now

but one quick question, so ok i sell all my cars then get the last one impounded then i return to main menu, i go to career and im guessing i just start off automatically then start my career again and i start the race with cross yata yata yata

and ill still have all my stats? meaning the 6 free roam races i did after i beat career the first time will still be there and will be added onto the ones im doing after my career is reset basically?

Yes, that's right. The next free roam challenge you do will count as number 7. All of your stats remain and you continue to build on them with the next career.

freaking sweet

so do u think, since i beat career firs time with rx-8(tuner), this upcoming time with alfa romeo(exotic), and next time with camaro(muscle)

think that will qualify for anything else since EA was talking about beating the game with all 3 categories? or do u think i would be better off just beating it this time with the alfa romero, getting my 1million cash and defensive races and just leaving it at that? or do u think we need to beat it with all 3 to maybe unlock something else?

ive also gotta get my OXP up :roll:

i just got a idea,
maybe we can transfer the cars from career garage to 'My Cars' section with TSearch
and transfer them back to career garage after starting second career ?

im going to try it later today when i get back home

if it work, it will be great not having to recustomize every car, i spend so much time on this
but not as much as in NFSU2 where i mod my cars more than i race lol

I'm thinking it's more likely that if there's anything special to be unlocked like this, it's gonna be by beating career in all three modes. Don't bank on it tho.

Very nice find there. I've got like 4 different games going now because I thought you had to start up a new profile to re-do the career. Now I can get rid of them :)

Statistics > Gameplay > erm.. yeah, not listed anywhere. I guess you gotta keep doing them blindly until you hit the mark.
