I had zero luck with any of these solutions and I had a multitude of failures. Having just popped this achievement 30 seconds ago, I feel this is the best way to do it.

Firstly, at the original "choice" selection screen (says "main menu" at the top, first choice career, second choice my cars, etc), type in the following cheat:

Inifinte NOS
Left, Up, Left, Down, Left, Down, Right, X

Don't worry, it wont hurt any achievements or card unlocks.

Now go to My Cars. Add a new car and find the Dodge Viper SRT-10 (assuming you have it unlocked). Buy it. Now hit "A" to customize it. Click on performance. Press X to optimize performance and then press the start button and verify your shopping cart purchase.

From there go back into the performance screen and you're going to be hitting the "A" button to do tuning on these items:

Transmission: Change all to top speed (hit A to add to cart)
Engine: Change all to horsepower (hit A to add to cart)
Nitrous: Change all to velocity (hit A to add to cart)

Leave the rest alone.

Verify these purchases in your shopping cart.

Now back out to the main menu again. Go and click on "quick race". Hit the right trigger until you see "speedtrap". The first one, 1/10, is automatically selected. Press "A". Now put in the settings:

Game mode: Solo
Tracking Mode: unranked
Shadow Option: Off
Difficulty: Easy
Crew Member: Off
Traffic Level: None
AI Opponents: 0
Catch up: On

Hit A to accept.Choose your car in the next screen (Viper SRT 10). You may have to toggle to "my cars" by pressing up and down on your left stick. Choose automatic transmission unless you're used to the other.

Wait for the loading screen. What you're going to do is hold down your left trigger and back all the way up until the "white" on the mini map is basically gone and the yellow begins (a little short of that). If you go too far the race will reset you.

Once positioned, step on the gas and hold your B button for the NOS and stay on the right side, including where the road "splits". Try not to run into any signs, hit the wall, or correct too much on your stick, as it should be a relatively straight run. You should hit the first speedtrap at enough of a speed (I hit it at 245).

After that, finish the race and the achievement will pop.

I tried using other cars but kept being short, as well as the "drifting" method. Hope this helps!
