Easy(er) Thunder Licenses

Great Tip for all you freaks that like to get everything in the game. While in Veteran and Legend License mode, go full throttle (No Brakes!)into the turns, skid into the wall and try to skim along the wall on the passanger side. Once you come off the wall turn down enough to keep from hitting the wall again (if possible) and continue full throttle towards the next corner (or Finish Line). This should be enough to get that levels license (I received Legend on eveything but Daytona, Talladega, Watkins Glen, and Sonoma) with this strategy. Remember don't spin out or "Stick" your car's nose into the wall, or your screwed.

Keep From Spinning Out In Career Mode

With "Full" assist being denied in Career mode, use this in car setups to keep from spinning out. Always set up your car with more front downforce and less rear downforce. Use practice/happy hour to perfect this setup.
