- VEHICLE ATTRIBUES -

The vehicle you pick to take part in Midtown Madness 3 races can be crucial to your success: in Blitz races, the time you’re given to complete each race changes depending on your vehicle; while in Checkpoint races, your opponents pick vehicles within the same class as yours. Each vehicle has 5 different attributes that you'll need to take into consideration. Each one is rated from 1 to 9; indicating crappy to excellent performance in that particular area respectively.

Top speed – how fast the vehicle goes when you put your foot down
Acceleration – how fast the vehicle reaches its’ top speed
Mass – how much room the vehicle takes up
Handling – how well the vehicle turns
Durability – how well the vehicle holds up against your poor driving

Below you’ll find a list of every car available (at the time this was posted).

- XBOX LIVE DRIVING TIPS –

In most game modes, being able to look at what’s going on behind and to the sides of your vehicle is invaluable. Use this in conjunction with your map so that you always know when you’re being pursued.

When you’re being chased, it’s important to try and remain as unpredictable as possible. For example: try fooling opponents into thinking you’re about to take a turn, then carrying on in a straight line. Swerving from side to side also helps in sticky situations.

When chasing opponents, remember to keep in mind what you’d be doing in their situation. Don’t just charge up to them and expect to tag them. Refrain from putting your foot down; go slow enough so that you’ll have time to swerve should they try to avoid you, but fast enough to stop them from speeding away altogether.

In Tag mode, once your vehicle is damaged out, you’re out of that match for good. While retreating through fences and over jumps makes for good escapes, doing so can damage your car heavily. Always stick to the roads and avoid all obstacles when you’re not being chased; keeping your car in good shape for when you need to evade an opponent.

Having your headlights switched on is a big no-no. When you have them switched off, you’re far less visible to opponents, especially during night-time based games.

Learning the stages – in the non-race modes, rather than Checkpoint – is good for keeping the odds stacked in your favour. Memorise the locations of every hiding place and possible sneaky getaway routes. Sharing secrets with other players on Live can also lead to finding out new ones.

Try to pick vehicles with a low mass, so that you’re a smaller target; plus smaller cars tend to handle a lot better than larger ones. However, one thing to take into consideration is that smaller cars also tend to be less resistant to damage caused by erratic driving.
