CRASH MODE: EASY CASH METHODS
Method 1: When you get to the main menu, go to Single Event and Crash Mode. Select Junction 19, Tuk Down, and Muscle type 1 as your car. Boost start at the beginning. Drift and collect either the gold or silver (it is possible to collect both of them). Smash through the boxes avoiding the wall, into the boost and up evenly on the jump, avoiding the heart-breaker to your right. Collect the x2 multiplier and after touch, making sure you try to land evenly without hitting any boxes. Slide into the Crashbreaker, and get to the x4 multiplier past the buses in aftertouch. If you get knocked out of the way by the buses, wait until you stop and press Crashbreaker. Aim in the direction of the x4 multiplier. If you miss, you always have the x2 as a fail safe. It is possible to get $1,500,000 to $1,750,000. Repeat this, and do not select "Retry"; as all the money adds up to the total score.
Method 2: Go to junction titled "On-Rampage". The largest car you have will work best. Getting the boost start at the beginning is not required, but it does help. It is possible grab the silver or bronze pick-ups, then pick up the 4x multiplier and hit the car that is closest to the yellow strip on the road in the oncoming lanes. Use aftertouch to try to stay in the spot that you hit that car. Wait until there are two or three seconds remaining, then use your crashbreaker to explode. Try to take out the gas tankers with the explosion. It is possible to get $1.8 million to $2.5 million.

GENERAL HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS
How to get an easy takedown: As soon as any race begins, immediately get behind the nearest opponent and hold Boost. You will start getting Tailgating points and will receive a short boost. Use this boost to quickly slam your opponent. This will result in a takedown about 90% of the time and will immediately fill your entire boost bar.
How to move after you have stopped in crash mode: After you have performed your crash, save the Crashbreaker and look around to see if there are items or more cars you can hit. Use the Crashbreaker, and guide yourself with R and the D-pad to where ever you want to go. This can move you pretty far, and can get you over trailers and big trucks.
Help with unlocking cars (one): Choose your favourite track in world tour mode and race it repeatedly (do not retry). Continue, then repeat.
Help with unlocking cars (two): Find a stage or track in world tour mode that you can get a lot of money from. Keep playing that track until you have unlocked the next car in your line-up.
How to get a quick start: Hold the gas while tapping the brakes to get your tires smoking. When the countdown is between 1 and Go, release the gas, then press it again.
