So far I can only hit 360-720... Anyone know a good jump for 1080 vehicle air spin? I really want black dodge car, red dodge is just so boring and common now...

I did it off of the top of Top-Notch Toolworks. If you hop onto the ground in the back it basically gives you a perfect ramp into the water. As long as you pull it off in the air it will count

Top-Notch Toolworks yes. Go up the stairs and there is a catwalk with no guardrail on one end. You MUST land on solid ground for the 1080 to count (the side of the mountain works).

Yeah landing in water doesn't work. I have done 2 1080's but didn't get credit for it because I landed in water. I'll try the Diablo one next.

off of the very top of mount tam... among several other places.. too bad the achievement stops at 1080.... i've had up to 11 full rotations soo far.. also sad we can't get a full flip going..

If you look for it, there's a small gate that you can drive through in the back of diablo, and if you hit the boost right, you'll hit a rock right when you take off, and that'll start your spin super fast (Though, not really needed from that high up)

Eh? Maybe it bugged and I got the achievement anyways. I definitely landed in water when I got it.

I did mine at Top Notch as well.. and I definitely landed in the water, but both my 720 and 1080 where water landings, and both counted.

Just tried it. Water landings don't Count. So I'll have to find a different location. :mad:

I just got the achievement and 100% landed in water. Perhaps the difference is that you have to land in water that is not an auto-kill (out of play) type of water? The first time I tried I'm sure I did 1080 but landed in some water that is kind of out of zone where the screen starts to get dark. 2nd time I landed in normal water that you can swim in without a problem and got the achievement.

I landed in water where I was not killed and could swim back to shore. Did not Count.

Weird, not sure what the deal is then or why it triggers for some and not others.

Go to the huge tower that is in San Francisco ( you can't miss it ) walk around the bottom pillars until you see it say press X to climb .. you can climb it 3 times .. get to the top spawn quad drive off and spin you can get them all first try..if anyone needs help i can take you to it.

I just did it at Top Notch, I jumped on the cliff section behind the actual building, then used the messed up texture bit as a jump and landed on the side of the island next to the island with the actual Top Notch building on it
