    Do the first race on Rookie, easy as pie.

    To change your transmission type, go to Options>Profiles>Transmission and just change it to MT.

    halohoggStart your racing career off right, and drive in manual ALL THE TIME. You will quickly get the hang of it, and won't even have to think about gearing up and down - it will become automatic. It WILL however be an enormous help for racing fast in all the later difficulties and getting faster times. A skill that will be infinitely transferable to all your later racing games,

    You can also adjust the controls in the options to a more standard layout:
    X - gear down
    B - gear up
    A - handbrake

    For this just load up options>Profile Settings>Transmission flick this across to MT (Manual Transmission) then go to Tier One the first event and win it. Now just go ahead and win the race with the gears in manual then after go switch it back in the options.Winning in manual is obviously harder than AT ( Automatic transmission) so try listen for when the engine sounds like its ready to go into a higher or lower gear!

    This can also be done in multiplayer to make it more easy. First go to Options > Profile Settings > Transmission and make sure its on MT instead of AT.

    Then go to Multiplayer, create a player match and invite your boosting buddy. win the race with no damage and you knock out 3 / 4 achievements in one go.
