I agreed it sucks. I eventually get through it, but it makes you remember your playing an sp game b/c it's the same thing everytime you do it.

I'm up to "Ronnie" BL #3 and so far the only reason you need speedbreaker is for tight turns. Drag is easy to do without speedbreaker. Just use your NOS when your in a tight spot too

If I can't get around the corner on those really sharp turns, I enter in super wide and start my turn early and bounce of the side of the track. Works great for me

Honestly none of the Blacklist racers are hard to beat...the normal races are pretty tough to beat during the last few and Milstone challenges are VERY hard...I rarely restarted a Blacklist race but found a myself doing it a few times in some normal races.

Bull and Razor are simple to beat if you have a loaded Carrera GT like I did and good driving skills to handle 200+ and everything around you being blurry

Yeah I hated the drag races too, so I avoided them whenever possible. Never used the speedbreaker on them... didn't think about, but I find the speed breaker is most handy in dodging Rhinos and spike strips. I think Ronnie was the hardest on the blacklist, but it was traffic that gave me the most trouble, not the tracks or the other drivers... But that's partly because I was using the Elise, which is so light it gets totally screwed if you hit something, but it's a rocket otherwise. I think Razor was probably the easiest lol Except for the drag race, I didn't need to start any of his races overwith, and I beat him by 400mph on the Speedtrap race! I knew about the speedbreaker from the demo, but I never used it until I got to heat level 4 and need help dodging spike strips and Rhinos. The game was a lot of fun, there were some things I'd like to see changed, but overall well worth it. Speaking of the challenges, did anyone else with the Black Edition find the special Black Edition bounty challenge in the Camaro stupidly easy?

Yeah the Speedtrap race was easy mine was around a 500mph difference 1800 to 1300 and some change on both

The Speedbreaker does come in handy when they lay down spike strips, cause if you're hauling at 170+ at a roadblock, just the quick slowness of the Speedbreaker allows me to find where they are at.

..and Yiffy it pretty much was easy, I think I got done in 3 minutes (I'll have to check) or so getting 500,000 bounty...with a heat level of 7 bounty flies at you pretty fast, you get 50,000 for taking out a Heavy SUV...I kept running under pursuit breakers to make them wreck

Same goes for the last pursuit with the all black Vettes, kept racking up bounty took out Cross for a good 300,000 bounty.


And dragging sucks my ass....NFS:U2 dragging was at least in a straight line.

When my net gets back up I want to race people...and we should drag then shoot our brains out for how much it sucks...lol

Yea i thought that was pretty asy. I was surprised at that. Should've been tougher, it woulda made me feel better beating it lol.

Anyway, i asked about the last 2 racers because i didnt have it on autosave and i got through like 1 blacklist racer and than some before my computer froze on me. I was sooooooo pissed, so i was just like f*** it. Then i just uninstalled the game. I was up to racer #4.
