    I was told once that the Murcielago can go 290 MPH, I would assume with junkman tuning. Now, I don't know if there is any truth to that, but I would recommend testing that car out.

    I'll try and test it out today, although I doubt it has the gearing for anything over 260.

    I just started playing it again yesterday on a friend's PS2. The controls were a lot more loose than I remembered, but I got used to it. It's just as fun now as it was back then IMO.

    After re-starting the game for the 1st time in 2 years thanks to you guys I'm on my way to get the 1st of Razor's boys, Roonie. It's been fun, already got my beloved blue Dodge Viper and I'm having a good time :)

    Don't really care about his Aston Martin, my real goal in terms of remaining pinkslips is Bull's SLR ;)

    You can honestly modify your garage to get the pinkslips by changing the tuning slot in your garage. You can have 15 pinkslips and 10 cars in your garage.

    It's hard, however. To mod the PS2 version, but can be done the same way.

    You may need an Xbox Emulator for that to work, otherwise. You risk your data for being corrupted. I won't go into detail about this emulator, but it "should" work the same way it's always been.

    So I got bored and did some topspeed testing with the Junkman parts (apart from the M3 & C6R):

    Murcielago: 246 MPH
    Viper: 241 MPH
    911 Turbo: 241 MPH
    Galladro: 240 MPH
    CLK 500: 240 MPH
    C6: 239 MPH
    M3 GTR: 235 MPH*
    C6R: 226 MPH*

    I'll update this post with more results soon.

    I have a few questions I've always wanted to know about the game?? For curiosity since I have more knowledge than 10 years ago when I've played it at my ps2. All are about the 1st race against Razor's mustang (where, you know, he and his a(beep)s cutted the oil lines of the M3 GTR and made the engine blew up) :banghead:.

    1: What's the name of the sprint race it was held??. On the low I know it's at rockport, and had 2 similar corners (the last one being where usually Mia calls you about warning you about the M3's oil spil at the start, and then tragedy a few seconds later)

    2: Is there any possibly way to avoid this to happen?? I mean, mods, hacking, or whatever?? Because since 9 years old I'm really curious to know what would happen if the player actually ended that race... apart of getting the mustang, and BL's #15. I mean, I remember you were like 25% yet to finish when the BMW died...:(

    Nope, not possible. It's a script that runs the last race, but in the code it was a fake win. Meaning, reverse engineering the script would break the race, no question.

    So basically, if someone change the code, destroys the game??

    It destroys the game and the final prologue event. The cops are also a script.

    I actually played a compressed version of NFSMW and when I raced Razor during the prologue event and guess what? The M3 didn't break down and it required me to complete the sprint race then it leads me to choosing the starter cars (IS300, Cobalt, etc.).

    It was a highly compressed version of MW which you can find anywhere in the internet if you type "nfs most wanted 2005 download" and you'll see a highly compressed one.

    Well, I tried with a highly compressed version (350mb). I even downloaded a trainer for infinite NOS for a 2nd try. Hell, it even had a "no engine blown" mode!

    On the prologue's prologue race, I got to finish it without any problems, the screen didn't fade and any problem happened :D (in both chances without and with trainer)

    Then the common 3 races before the 100% prologue race (again with and without). And, in the 2nd try, even with trainer full on, didn't work, the M3 still broke out... Yeah, it's a script really hard to bypass...

    Screw it, right now downloading the 100% game and a 100% savegame (because I just want to do builds) to be part of the group!

    One thing I have been meaning to share with you guys is it is possible to take advantage of the extra garage space simply by hex editing as Jake mentioned. For those that don't know, you can buy up to 10 cars and of course you can win all 15 blacklist cars making for at least 25 cars.

    Well if you know about hex editing, you know after the car code is the location right?

    02 = A car you bought in career
    42 = A car you won via pink slip

    Well all you really have to do change the 02 to 42 for whatever cars you have and the game will think you won it, allowing you to buy more. Say you have 10 cars and change 1, well you can buy one more car. Change it for 10 of them and you can buy 10. (I think you get the picture)

    Only things to worry about is:
    • 25 cars is still the limit and cannot be bypassed in any way. (I tried)
    • If you have a full garage and you win a pink slip, the game will freeze.
    Other than that, it works really well!

    Completed the game yesterday with a Dodge Viper equipped only with a Junkman supercharger and transmission and got exactly to that very same top speed.

    Also, I noticed that the Pontiac GTO's engine note changes after installing the Junkman engine modification. Anybody noticed that? :confused:

    I would like to see someone reenact this finish.

    How was that even possible?

    I've seen his NFS vids and they're all funny. Also he's trying to make a NFSMW meme "PRISON TIME" become a thing.

    If Kuru somehow makes more Youtube content rather than streaming then maybe we could be looking at a new NFS Youtuber rather than BP.

    If someone could replace those Blacklist cars with updated versions then here's my suggestion:

    My idea for this is:
    Sonny- VW Golf R
    Taz- Lexus ISF
    Vic- Toyota GT86
    Izzy- Mazda MX-5
    Big Lou- Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder
    Baron- Porsche Cayman GT4/S
    Earl- Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X
    Jewels- Ford Mustang RTR Spec
    Kaze- Mercedes Benz CLK63 Black Series
    Ming- Lamborghini Huracan
    Webster- Chevy Corvette C6.R
    JV- Dodge Viper GTS-R/SRT Viper GT3-R
    Ronnie- Aston Martin DBR9/DBRS9
    Bull- Mercedes SLR Mclaren 722 GT

    I wanted to make the top 5 drive race cars since Razor is the only BL member driving a race car.

    All I need now is a Import Tuner Career mod (no rice cars though because no speed.)

    What mods have you installed so far?
    I'm only using Askine's V0.9 Textures and his 2013 ENB. The game takes ages to load the new textures, but it looks great.
    2017.05.07-23.13.png
    It looks a bit too bright with the current settings, but that can be fixed. The problem is that I'd need to keep relaunching the game to test the settings, which could get a bit tedious seeing as it takes over a minute to launch with the new textures...
