This achievement is pretty simple. You must win 5 races with a custom vehicle, this can be done a number of different ways but the way I did it is I went out and stole a car, which happened to be a "Compact" car. You can tell what kind of car it is because it will say it at the end of it's name. Then you need to take this car to Los Santos Customs or any car shop and put an engine upgrade on it and a tracker, I think you have the engine upgrade at Level 1. There may be cheaper mods that will classify your vehicle as custom, but I was playing safe. You also may not need the tracker, I'm not sure.

Now you must find a race that will allow you to use your class of car. There's a race at the prison near Sandy Shores that will allow you to use any class and take about 30 - 45 seconds a lap. Go to the job spot of this race and enter the circle (or go to the Job section of the online menu), it will take you to a menu, choose to host your own game. Set the rules to 1 lap and make sure custom vehicles are on and the class is set to the class of your vehicle. Then invite your friend, and be sure to pick your custom car (it should say "Custom _____") Then simply win 5 races, at the end of each race you can just hit "Replay" at the bottom of the next mission select and replay the same race.
killerder1So it can be the same vehicle or 5 unique ones?

Fallen GFX@killerder1 it can be the same vehicle all 5 times

@Persus Argol yes, me and my friend just did the same race 10 times for both of us to get it.

Calex dEUSJust a note it doesn't work if you simply choose to start the race by yourself, looks like you need to have a friend to boost it with you.

DocttyI tried to do this by myself, the only other person I know playing GTA traded it in after moaning for 2 days about not being able to play online. - You need one other person, I have "won" 10 races in a custom car with no one else and no unlock

EarthboundXI've done this solo with both a custom car and motorcycle, and this still hasn't unlocked.

I got the platinum for winning a race with a custom vehicle in the single motorcycle race I did with a friend, that would have unlocked long ago if it was possible solo.

So I don't think this can be done solo after all. I think I might have misread a comment or two saying it was possible solo before though.
