To get this achievement, you need to beat the AI players, 15 times, after selecting "Challenge Series" from the Main Menu, and then choosing one of the races which has two little people icons on it. After you select the race, it'll give you an option whether to do it online or not, choose online, and wait for a match! Be careful, sometimes it'll dump you in someone else's match if it hasn't verified you as the leader yet. I believe becoming leader of the lobby happens after the first five seconds.

Just beat the AI players(you do NOT have to beat the human players!) 15 times and there's your achievement! I found that the 3rd speedtrap race, the farthest down of the online challenge options, and the Gold Speedtrap challenge seemed the easiest. If you are the lobby leader, you start in the rear right. Use NOS and accelerate out and around the cars in front of you and you should win almost every match. Learn the track. ;-)

You will need access to XBox Live and a partner in order to get this achievement. Doing these races alone will not count towards the achievement. You can use a dummy account if you have 2 copies of this game and 2 XBox's as there is a glitch you can do to this achievement, which is explained below.

From the Main Menu go into Challenge Series and you will be presented with a whole load of races you can attend. They are placed in difficulty from Bronze - Easy, Silver - Medium, Gold - Hard. Should you manage to complete all of these Challenges you will get prizes you can use in the game. But that's beside the point.

You need to look for the races that have 2 light blue humans next to each other. These are the ones that can be done in co-op. Among all of them I recommend the Co-Op Speedtrap event that's right down near the bottom. It is the easiest, even on Hard Difficulty. The races also give you a selected vehicle so you don't have to worry about choosing one.

Now if you are new to this, you will only have the Bronze Track unlocked. To unlock the other two you will need to come in 1st Place and beat the A.I opponents. Once you have won that track in first place you can do the Silver Track. Then you will have the Gold Track once you have first place on the Silver Track. Once you have access to the Gold Track you can continue using this track as repeating the same track count towards this achievement.

Choose whichever one you want and you will be given an option of playing it alone, split-screen or online. Choose Online and choose Automatic Tranmission. The game will search for a match. Will take awhile. Your partner should do the same. Whoever gets a lobby first should then invite their partner through the XBox Guide or the partner can open the XBox Guide themselves and then press cn_X to join session in progress.

Once you are both in the race, the host needs to press the cn_start button to begin the race.

Now once the race has begun one of you needs to come in 1st place among the opponents. You will need to gain as much speed as possible and remain in first place whilst going through the 6 Cameras on the track. The camera will register your speed as you pass by and build up a tally and present your score on the top right side of the screen. Use your Nitrous to build speed if you need more miles done or if you crash and need to get back onto the track. If you don't cross the finish line first, you can still win with speed but every few moments flashes will blast on your screen and your total score will start reducing until you cross the finish line.

Once the race is completed you will have to wait for your partner to finish or let the time run out and let them get a DQ. This doesn't matter. Now both of you need to press cn_A to return to the lobby and then you both need to exit to the Main Menu since the game will change the Challenge Series to an Unranked Match which is not what you want. You'll have to rinse and repeat the above until you both are awarded this achievement for beating the A.I opponents in 15 of these challenge series races.


I can confirm that even though 2 of you are participating in the race, only one of you needs to beat the A.I opponents as the win will count for both players. I did this achievement with my dummy account and it was sitting still at the start point. Everytime I won a race against the A.I opponents it counted for it and when I got the achievements, it also got them at the same time.

Note that you must beat the A.I opponents in order for a win towards this achievement to count. Losing against them will not count towards the achievement.

I hope my information is useful, good luck.
