If you crash your car in a race and have a manual transmission, put it in neutral. Hit the gas all the way, then slam it into first gear to get a boost.
Easy win hint:
The key to victory in any course or mode is to void traffic, cut corners, and drive straight at every opportunity. Check where you will be racing next and set up a custom free-race to emulate the race course so you can check the feel of the course and find valuable shortcuts.
Only play drag races until you complete it and have at least an RX-8. The rest of the game should now be easier.
