There are certain car mods that I haven't unlocked and they require you to win a number of races. I haven't raced that much because I mostly do missions/survival to make money. But some of my cars are just too slow and I want to be able to upgrade the engines and transmissions. Is it possible to race solo and unlock car mods?

yes, but certain mods will require another player, as you gotta perform slipstreams against other players and such

You can't unlock mods that require you to win a race, if you race alone, even though you are classed as the race winner.

nope solo races wont unlock mods... but if you race supercars it unlocks mods for all car types, not just the one your racing...

Sounds like I just need to get in an invite only lobby with one or two of my friends and do some races. Should hopefully win enough of those to unlock those mods.

I feel your pain, Joey.

No matter how fair I try to play it just doesn't cut it. Ramming and such is out of control.

Let's not even mention the sh*tty track these people always pick- JJJ, Jump and die and LS Forum.

I can race with you if you want. PSN TeammateAssist

 

I'd still put up a fight though. The NFS/Burnout side of me is the most dominant, so basically I always race to win.

 

You can easily beat me if you pick a "Supers" race though. I'm not good at any super, and my Vacca is literally just for the back shield thing.

Uh huh... got old fast. I like making races, and trying out other SC peeps races. Always entertaining. Even the crap tracks make me laugh soooooooo. Grab a few friends tho as matchmaking seems wonky and can take some time to get a decent amount of peeps.

I like how people with slow cars that know their cars are slow whine about losing races... Get a faster car.

 

I know the descriptions read that you have to win x number of races in a car to unlock mods but just keep in mind you can win in any car and it'll unlock mods for all cars, not just that type. IE: I can win in a super car and unlock a sedans mods as long as I won.

 

Ultimately, mods won't win you any races but skill will. Practice to gain more skill.

firstly im not whoring... this is optional, if you want it do it if not then ignore it... but it might help the OP and others looking for unlocks...

 

obviously unlocks are based on wins... this playlist is literally a set of drag races.. they are designed to be a GTA race using only boosts (and the occasional repair)... takes about 25 seconds each... as a playlist youll be done in about 5-7 mins,,, rinse and repeat and you should have your unlocks after about 45 mins.. remember to run it on supers and as a gta race (just try not to be tempted to sticky each other)....

 

the boosts unlock (i.e weapons enabled) at about checkpoint 4... theres alot of boosts at the start as its designed as a 12 person race so theres 1 pickup each before they are enabled.

 

a tip is to run these with 1 other person, determine your winner before hand and run all 5 races,,, then re-launch the playlist so the other person can play "winner".. .when your the "winner" bet on yourself to earn some extra peas as the RP and Money for these is really low.. i designed them for a bit of fun and "Fast & Furious" style races where you have a type of NOS boost to use and timing not vehicle is the determining factor in wins...

 

 

I like how people with slow cars that know their cars are slow whine about losing races... Get a faster car.

 

I know the descriptions read that you have to win x number of races in a car to unlock mods but just keep in mind you can win in any car and it'll unlock mods for all cars, not just that type. IE: I can win in a super car and unlock a sedans mods as long as I won.

 

Ultimately, mods won't win you any races but skill will. Practice to gain more skill.

 

 

this only works if you use super cars... if you race sedans it WONT unlock mods for compacts ... supers unlocks for all types...

 

also motorbikes used to unlock mods for all types but as its been a while im not sure if it still does or if its been patched.
