[edit] Shoot off tires

Aiming at tires and shooting where the bolts are, in the middle. This works best with the Tommy gun.

[edit] Vehicle kill zones

When taking out a vehicle, the following are the easiest and quickest ways to do so. Direct hits to the radiator in most cars will blow them up with two or three shots with the sawed-off shotgun, which is the weapon of choice. Some other good spots to hit are the front right, front left, and rear (central rear panel where gas tank would be located).

[edit] Easy money

Bet a negative number at the casino to gain money every time you lose. Kill the men in the all black suits with the black hat (gangsters) to earn $500 each. Go into the country and speed in a fast car.

[edit] Win the race

Drive up to the first checkpoint and slow down. Behind the boulders is a short patch of sand where you can drive onto the closed road. This of course is the "wrong way" and if you plan to go through it, you will be faster but not complete the lap. You will not win unless you do the following. Drive up to the end of the road, just past the "Dunniel" (or something similar) sign, where you get your checkpoint information and select "Replace Car" (default is [Keypad 0]). The goal is now just a few inches away. You must to do this five times. By doing so, you can finish the race in a little less than six minutes. Note: Make sure you do not crash on the closed road as the "Replace Car" might not work there, or will place you back to the first checkpoint.
