Don't panic but you'll be starting at a heat level of six for this one so plan accordingly.

Your choice of car is really down to personal preference; I used the Huayra (number two on the list) but the Veyron, and Corvette ZR1 are also good options. Whatever you choose. tweaking it with the following mods (pro if possible) will make the race much easier:

- Reinflate tyres*
- Burn nitrous
- Lightweight chassis
- Aero body
- Short transmission**

*Probably not necessary if you can react to spike strips at 200+ mph and to be honest there weren't all that many dropped. Track tyres (pro or not) would be a good alternative.

**I prefer the short gears for getting out of trouble with cops and for maintaining a higher average speed through slower corners.

The course itself is pretty long at a little over 13km but most of it consists of the interstate sections and some of the beltway tunnels. The only serious roadblocks (i.e. SWAT vans) you'll see are simply just to redirect you and keep you on the correct path.

The Agera R is pretty quick in a straight line but the Huayra has the edge in the corners, particularly the way I had it set up. Taking it down really isn't too difficult because of the speed involved - a simple tap sideways did the trick for me.

Feel free to let me know if you can come up with a better car/mod combo and I'll be happy to update and share the credit.
