Burnout 2 Terminology
Although this game has been out for quite awhile, some people don't know about this. When you start a race with the computers, you see them take off really fast at the beginnig, that is a quick start.
What you have to do is time the starting right while shifting the gear from nuetural into first gear. To do that, right when the countdown begins, press the brake, then the gas. Now right before the guy says GO, press the brake again then the gas and you should have a quick start. If not, keep practicing, the timing can be hard at first but is easy after you get the hang of it.
Everyone should know about this by now, but for the ones who dont, here it is.
While coming up to a turn, tap the emergancy brake while turning, and the car will start to drift.
