You need at least one other person for the achievement, it is quite easy to find your friends/boosting partners in ranked matches since as of June 6th, 2009 I declare the online devoid of life.

To get this you need to keep a stunt chain active until it passes the 200 mark, doing stunts like getting air, near misses and drifts will raise your stunt chain, you need to continue to do stunts consecutively to keep the chain growing. Some levels work better for this than others, I found Overdrive 2 and Aftershock 2 worked well, but experiment with the different levels to find one you like the best.

If driving around the track is too tough for you, you can find a large group of objects to get near misses on and keep driving back and forth passed them while using your nitro to keep your speed and chain up. Once your chain rises above 200 you can finish the event or let the time run out, even if you fail at the end of the match the achievement should unlock

I personally used the first turn on Overdrive 2 to get my achievement, on the second lap the route changes and becomes a long stretch with objects filling. Once I got to the end of the alley I would do a tight handbrake turn/drift and then slam on my nitro to get back in the alley before my chain expired. Sports cars tend to work better since they accelerate faster and turn sharper.

You will also likely unlock the achievement "Nitro Head" at the same time since you get a new nitro bonus with ever 20 counts on your chain.

As Zach Cooper FBI said - this game is dead for it's online and doing a ranked match with a buddy is VERY easy.

This would not have been found without the help of Peter Slocombe

Now here is how you get this achievement with ease:
Start the game and go into "Multiclash" - this is the name they gave the Multiplayer mode.
Select the mode of connection (XBox live is probably what you would be using) and have one person create a Backlot battle match and the other people join that match.

Now, for the track - select "Overdrive 1"

When the race starts, turn around and go the opposite direction until the track turns. Still facing the opposite direction of the track, you should see two ally ways - one with the wood/barrels/cones/etc and one that looks like a real ally way.

What you want to do is drive down one ally way and then drift into the one next to it. There are plenty of items in both ally ways to keep your string alive, and enough room to ensure you can safely drift into them. It is best if this is done one at a time to avoid accidental crashing/string stealing.

Also you can use your Nitro boost while going down the ally ways to earn

You will gain another nitro boost for every 20 string increment (20/40/60/etc.).

Another note - after you get your 200+ string done, your buddy can ram into you, steal your string and gain

Also, you DO NOT have to finish the race. After obtaining the 200x string, you can just let the time run out and you will earn the achievement. All of the multiplayer achievements in this game will pop after the end of the race.
