    The boosting into a static object or in a circle no longer work since the bike patch. If you want, you can look up how to remove that patch and do the achievement offline, but that wasn't my thing.

    The easiest way I found to do this was to use the Nakamura SI-7 Hydros Custom and go to the stunt event just west of the stadium (SE corner of the map). When you start the stunt event it causes there to be less traffic on the road. Go west and then south to the I88 entrance and go into oncoming traffic. Being in oncoming traffic will keep your boost refilling.

    Then just boost away watching out for the occasional car and those annoying toll booths.I would recommend tapping the brake after each burnout to keep the speed reasonably low to ease the dodging.

    ***Edit : Per the comments, please note that since the patch the SI-7 doesn't work well. Try the Hydros Custom.

    Mental Knight 5Excellent technique. Without Stunt Run, I could only get 3x or 4x. During Stunt Run, I got 20x on the second try. (And it feels less cheap than the gas station method.)

    S P 4 C E YGreat advice. Worked absolutely perfectly.

    I did it on freeburn which really limited the number of cars

    CRAWFORD696Sweet Solution. Got it first try this way. One thing for other people that go for this achievement using this solution is make sure that you take the turns wide. Avoid hitting the walls straight on. +1 from me.

    lightsup55This method no longer works as it was patched since title update 1.9.

    If you are playing on an Xbox 360 console, you can delete the title update, load the game, decline the update, then play the game offline and earn the achievement using the method above.

    And if you wanted to try this online...

    Freeburn Online method no longer works due to online services that closed as of August 1, 2019, at 12:00 AM UTC.

    Online services are still running in Burnout Paradise Remastered on Xbox One where this achievement is obtainable in Freeburn Online (host sets up a custom race with no traffic).

    This achievement was quite easy to do. I just changed the daysettings to night (=less traffic and a better view imo because you see the front lights of the oncoming traffic), then I grabbed the Gt concept carbon. This car is a fast car but you should be able to handle it. After selecting the car, I drove to the I-88 and started to boost in the oncoming traffic. I didn't press RT the whole time and sometimes I had to press LT, to reduce the speed. The first two times I didn't reach the 20X boost but on my third try it worked and I got a 43X boost. After that I crashed into a toll gate.

    zeldafanjtlI ended up using LT a lot. Just be careful, because if you ride LT too much you might not get another burnout (or worse, come to a complete stop).

    Also, be careful LTing anywhere but a straightaway; I crashed several times because I went into a drift unintentionally and lost control.

    Amazing how much nerves play into this achievement. It took me four or five attempts to actually get up to x20, but then afterwards I stopped hitting LT at all and was able to get up to x34.
