In country woods, after a series of 90 degree turns, there's a 
patch of trees on the right.  If you slow down enough, you can 
pick your way between the trees and come out the other side.  
This eliminates a long hairpin turn and saves a huge amount of time.

Very special thanks goes out to for the in-game cheats


Redrock Ridge (forward, non-mirrored):
About half way into a lap, you'll have to make a difficult left hairpin turn. 
There is an alternative left turn immediately before that hairpin turn.
Atlantica (forward, non-mirrored):
After driving past that "Electronic Arts" landmark (at roughly half way 
into a lap), take the left path, then right. You'll immediately see a 
shortcut entrance in the right wall. Upon exiting the shortcut, 
you'll need to turn right.
Rocky Pass (forward, non-mirrored):
Where you see the falling-rock road sign, right past that sign, there 
is a small and short cave tunnel off-road to you right. Driving through 
it instead of making that sharp right turn on the road will save you 
some time.
Country Woods (backward, non-mirrored):
There is one difficult left hairpin turn AFTER all those 90 degrees sharp turns
(at about half way into a lap). Instead of making that hairpin turn, do this: A
few seconds before approaching that hairpin turn, you can make a sharp left
turn (with the help of your handbrake) and drop to the lower level. While still
in the mid-air, continuously press that L1 reset button. You'll immediately
recover from that crash landing and "skip" that hairpin turn. This saves you at
least 3 seconds. One other trick on this track: there is one big and high jump
at the beginning of this backward track (your car hitting the roof of the
tunnel). Once landed, keep straight and accelerate all the way till you hit
hard at the wall. When you crash, immediately press the L1 reset button to
continue. This way you don't have slow down to make that 90 degree turn
and can easily gain 2+ seconds.
Aquatica (forward, non-mirrored):
After the initially left, right, right, right turns, now during the next long 
and gradual left turn, there is a shortcut entrance in the right wall. Upon 
exiting the shortcut, turn right.
Empire City (forward, non-mirrored):
a) There are light poles on your LEFT side when you just pass the start/finish
line. Immediately before the 4th light pole, you'll find a shortcut entrance.
After exiting the shortcut, go STRAIGHT. There is a wall in front of you but
a little bit to your left is another shortcut entrance. Upon exiting this
shortcut, turn right.
b) Immediately after the second SET of concrete pillars (when near the end of
a lap), you will easily see a "fake wall" on your right side. Drive through it
and you'll drop to the lower level. This saves you 2 to 3 seconds.

Thanks to Yung-chuan Lee for these shortcuts.

first activate the summit race track.  when the announcer says go 
drive.  as soon as you pass the first guard rail on the left, drive 
up into the trees.  you should hit the track boundries.  follow it as
close to it as possible.  you will then get to a point where your car hits
an invisible wall.  as soon as this happens let go of the gas and don't
touch any buttons.  your car will slide downward the fall through the
ground.  the game will somewhat lockup but not qiute.  it will do this for
about 30 seconds but not in game time.  when this stops your car will pop
out right in town.  now drive for the finish line.  when you reach it that
is one complete lap.  repeat for rest of race.

when you are turning a corner and have a cop next to you about to ram
you just slow down a little bit not to long then when the cop is
moving over to ram you speed up and take the other side and if you did
it right the cop should slow down so much that you will out run him.
(works best with the jaguar or el nino)
