Crazy Taxi Hints (PlayStation 3)

The Arcade course has a roughly circular shape. To aim for better ratings, you should try to complete as many "laps" as you can, that is, avoid taking fares that will take you back in the opposite direction. This not only costs you time by forcing you to constantly turn your cab around, but also leads to an uneven distribution of remaining fares across the city. If you pick an area clean of customers by going back and forth, and you end up in the same region again later in the game, you might have to drive a long distance without earning any money to find new customers.
In order to save time when dropping off passengers, put in the reverse gear while applying the brakes. You will come to a much quicker stop. If you have to depart in a different direction than you arrive, also use a Crazy Drift to turn your cab around. But wait until you have slowed down a good bit before you initiate the drift, otherwise your cab will spin out of control and you will lose a lot of time because it takes long for it to come to a complete halt.
On long straightaways, initiate a so-called Limiter Cut. To do this, first perform a Crazy Dash: let go of the gas, engage the forward gear (even if it's already in), and hit the gas again quickly. This will bring your cab up to top speed. Right after the Crazy Dash, let go of the gas again, put in the reverse gear and quickly put it back in forward again before stepping on the gas again. Do this very quickly! If performed right, you will hear the engine rev up loudly, and see the car taking a violent jolt forward. On some cabs this might even lift your front wheels up in the air. This move can save you a lot of time.
