    As the achievement guide says, all you have to do is win an arcade mode race on the intermediate course (the first street circuit). You can crank down the difficulty - the achievement doesn't care. I had both Time and Difficulty down on Very Easy without issues - had the AI all passed before the race was half over.

    Start out by lowering the difficulty to Very Easy. You than just have to play the race normally and win 1st place. If time runs out, and you’re in first place, than the achievement will still pop up.

    Change the difficulty to very easy and the time to easy and the rest is a cake walk...just get in 1st place and stay there. Simple as that.

    If you absolutely suck at racing games like me and or cannot get this achievement do the following:
    Difficulty Very Easy
    Time limit: Very easy
    >>MIRROR MODE: ON<<
    Laps: Normal

    Doing this track and the Expert track normally i found impossible... However with Mirror Mode turned on you do the track in reverse making it a hell of alot easier :)
    Also i believe the E-brake is (LT)
    GOOD LUCK!

    The first time I played this track, I thought it was really hard, but with some help, it’s actually really easy!
    Make sure to put the difficulty and time on very easy or easy if you want the achievement really badly, you don’t have to play on the hard difficulties, now the next thing we are gonna be talking about is the drifting, on a curve where you have to turn sideways or around the whole way, if you hold LT and RT at the same time, you usually will just crash straight into the wall, if you let go of the RT while holding LT on the curves, it will be way better, as soon as I tried it, it made it so much easier, next we are talking about the rewind feature, you won’t get many but if you have a really bad crash/accident, you can rewind and avoid it by pressing start for the pause and press X for rewind, you get limited rewinds, so use them wisely, this video is what helped me. Credit goes to Cheevo Guides, I don’t own this.


    Hope this helps! Happy hunting!
