what i did was i got the alfa brera, and i cheaply tuned it up to go against wolf, and i got his car. i did no performance upgrades except i added a spoiler. i played on, and sadly got non of the other rivals cars, but i went on w/ the aston martin, and unlocked the 350z and bought it. then i selled the brera to get a good cash increase. all i added was nitrous, suspention, and tires. and that helped me beat darious. and i had over 1,000,000 cash. but the tip is to keep buying cars at a minimum, sell the least needed/used car, and DO ALL THE RACES.

well if you start with the brera there is a specific race that you unlock it w/out having to take over a territory.

holy smokes you must be einstein of NFS or something. Good work. =)

just one question tho, is there a difference between defense races pop up that you race immediately by pressing ENTER or race later by pressing ESC?

the ESC will give a purple star on the map but im wondering does that still counts as defenseive race?

I doubt it counts if you press Esc and let the rival crew take over your territory. When you go and race it from the map, it now belongs to them, so you're the attacker, not the defender.

yup, same here, I already conquered the 3 territories, going for Silverton now, all made with the 240SX, I already done the free roam challenges and all the defensive races. What I have to do now, is to gain 1mil $ and @ the end of the career to finish all the pursuit related tasks. What I'm confused is, that, the 2nd time I started the career, after I defeated 1 boss, I didn't get asked for the markers, is it only me, or you guys noticed the same thing? The only question I'm asking is: how should I buy another car, but don't spend too many cash on it. what car would be suitable? I would like to buy an tuner, and I want to go with the 350z or the Skyline.

oh, and about the "defensive races" I think I found how the system works. If you go for a race(let's say an Circuit), before you enter it, check the "Record" for it, then try to beat the record, and when you finished it, returning to "free roam" the "defensive screen" pops up. So, beat records for the current race, and you'll get automatically asked for a defensive race.

Yeh you don't get to choose markers the second time around since you already beat the bosses in this alias.

IMO go for the Skyline. They're both cheap anyway.

Interesting theory with the defensive races, but wouldn't that mean a defensive race after every territory race on the first time through, since you'd be setting all new records on all tracks?

oh well, I've observed this thing, after considering that I drove very well, and suddenly after finishing the event, the "defensive race" pop up.

i went with the 350z, it works well for what it is and handles well so essentially all i need to do is take shortcuts and beat the opponent on the corners

but yea after i got into silverton i had ALOT of defensive races pop up, like it was literally every other race if not every race so i got that out of the way

now i just gotta do pursuit cards, some more free roam(easy), and fill garage after i finish career

hope to get it all done tonight

The defence races is the races that pops up automatically and there you have to defend your territory.



In my last career i was going for to play the game slow and melodic to unlock everything, got 20 defence races and won them yippee!

Well NOT it was still locked after i had won the 20 races, EA thanks for this screwed up and buggy game :evil:

Most of those 'milestones' you actually have to win the next one to get the award. In this case, you'll get the recognition when you win the 21st defence race.
