    this one took me a long time to accomplish because most of the cars wont spin the full 360. pick the Jansen P12 if you have it, and then head over to the airfield with the gigantic jumps. do a few laps around the circuit there to get a feel for how you should position yourself for the massive jump that is shaped like a bell and when you eventually go for it hit the handbrake and left or right on the thumbpad just as you go off the edge. hold the direction down and you will spin around 500 degrees if you do it right. make sure that you pick the right car tho.

    P E Z B Y 7 2 7you can do it in the very first car they give you in the game - i know because i deleted my save file then wanted this achievement so started a new game, went to the cliff-top jump and got it first try... that jump gives a lot of air-time.

    This can be achieved with the first car given to you but will be easier with the faster and more agile cars

    There are many jumps all over the Paradise world but there are two locations in the game that this is easiest as it has the largest jumps. The two areas are the Quarry and the near by South Mountain Drive jump.

    To initiate a flat spin you need to spin off of a jump so that the car spins sideways in the air. The best way to do this is to hold the handbrake (Press cn_X) whilst turning just as you are about to launch off of a ramp.

    The 360 has to be in the air so any spinning done on the ground wont count

    Here's a video demonstrating the South Mountain Drive jump, however the Quarry can be seen at 1:02 on the left.

    Not made by me but still a great method.

    NABSQUADit seems like a good enough method if you can time it perfectly so that you hit the wall, but there are much easier methods that don't involve hitting other objects mid-air.
