    A Show Off skill is a Drift into a Pass. You MUST be drifting before you pass the other car so that the Drift skill procs before the Pass skill in order for this to count.
    And since you can only get Pass skills in races you can only get Show Off skills in races as well.

    I found the easiest method was to go to the Figure Eight Desert Course just south of the Airport. This race starts with a decent straight that goes into a sharp left turn. Get a car with good acceleration for this to make it easier. I personally used the HE Viper for the credit boost when I got my last skill and finished the race. When the race starts, hang near the back of the pack till you get past the bridge, then floor it and try to aim an E-Drift into the middle of the cars in the turn which should give you at least one Pass skill. This may take a few tries to get your timing and aim right. Then rewind and do it 4 more times. If it won't let you rewind all the way back to the top of the bridge you'll have to restart the race given the way the game handles skills after rewinds.
    You don't have to bank the skill nor does it even need to appear on screen in order to count. I recommend turning the tracker on for this challenge so you know if your efforts are counting and you know you are doing it right.


    Good Luck!
