    The best car to use for the races is the FBI van. Because it is a van, you will be racing against other vans, but the FBI is a lot faster. You should have no problems beating all levels.
    The first time you try a race you might miss a turn, because it isn't always clear where you have to go, but you can always restart the race after a "practice run".

    EthigyGreat solution. Those were a joke with the FBI SUV. And thanks to PlayazAdvocate’s comment on how to quickly get one.

    metallicafan459For anyone like me who is returning to this game after a long time away.

    You can replay any activity level once it is completed.
    If you load up Hijack on lvl 8 to get this car as per the hints - you’ll want to go to a forgive and forget confessional first - then pressing down twice on the d-pad will cancel the activity. This will allow you to save it in your crib garage.

    Scenic Route 16FBI only makes a difference in early rounds. The other racers cheat more from then on and spin you out all the time but you’re not allowed to spin them out, they’re invincible and your FBI blows up in 3 hits. Just another thing in this piece of shit game that cheats to steal your time.

    Adding to the solution above which works perfectly if you haven't beaten the Demolition Derby activity.

    However, if you have already completed Demolition Derby activity, the Derby cars will be available in your garage and can be used in the race. Also similar to racing the FBI where you will race against other vans, the derby cars will be racing against standard muscle cars like the Vegas which are a lot slower then the Ruckus or Rampage. This makes winning the race that bit easier.

    The way i got the achievement was useing an FBI jeep because useing that would put all other racers in a jeep also but your's would be faster with it being for the force and so on.

    -3 activity's
    -8 races in each activity
    -24 races at total

    I wouldnt say this was hard to do as each race only takes maybe a minute apart from lvl's 7 & 8 thay take a bit longer but not by much.

    On my second playthrough (save game got corupted) i done them all in a modded Voxel (Looks like a subaru). Put Nitro in the car and at eavery straght road i clicked the Left-Stick for boost and that gave me some distance ahead if them so i didnt have to worry about crashing the car and getting over-takein by the opponents.

    The best tips i can give you are NOT to use a super fast Sports car because thay may be faster than any other car but are not easy to handle at a high speed.

    Sorry if i left anything out or made any spelling errors.
    I hope this helps :)
    Good luck
