    Here are the average scores that Ryo will post when you challenge him, so all you need to do is build or purchase a machine that will destroy these scores.

    Ryo's scores (on average).
    Drag 1/2 mile: 19secs
    Wheelie: 600 meters +
    Speed trap: 150 - 160 km/h
    Drift: 3500pts +

    The other races you simply have to beat him to the checkpoints or the finish line.

    My cars:
    Drag 1/4 mile + 1/2 mile: Zonda 6.7s and 10.6s respectively
    Drag wheelie: Zonda 1300 meters. Hit turbo at 3rd gear. Easy!
    Speed: Supra with a Ford GT for speed trap challenges.
    Drift: Rx8 avg 5000pts without much effort.
    Grip: 911 (NOT the GT2!)

    Just purchased the best power + traction parts for my cars and for the Supra and 911 lowered the ride height to the lowest, and a wide body kit with maximum downforce. Other than that, no need to tune.

    The only problem I had was with the damn "catch-up" feature. On the speed challenges I was constantly slowed down to 140 or 150 km's, when I hit nitro I'd get slowed down to 160. My Supra is more than capable of hitting 180kmh's +.

    I played the entire game on casual. By lowering the assists, you also increase the difficulty. No point in making this game harder for yourself! :)

    Boots OrionI was using the Shelby to do the drifting but could barely get 2000 on the 1st drifting challenge. I struggled on it for well over an hour too.

    As soon as I switched to the RX-8 (quick upgraded to 3 power and 2 control [didn't have enough cash for control 3]), it was easy. I think it took me two attempts and the first was really close.

    It's amazing how much difference a car can make.

    Nice solution!

    Wheelie can't be 600m. 1/4 mile is only 402m. I have got 396m and Ryo was about 195m...

    this is not has hard as it looks. What you have to do is go against Ryo the showdown king. there are 10 events which you have to get through.
    First 5 are Speed and Drag
    second 5 are Drift and Grip i think
    the cars i used were - Mazda rx7 for drift
    evo 10 for shootouts and races
    supra for wheelie
    Dodge charger for drag
    and porsche 911 gt2 for the speed challages. which these cars i won. The only difficult one for me was the first drift as ryo kept getting around 3500 points each time other than that it was easy.
