After beating the standard Championships, a new "Bonus" mode will open up. Beat this tough challenge (including Wicked Woods) to get the fastest car in the game, the Police Beetle.

Handicap Mode
In Coventry Cove, go over the small wooden drawbridge towards the beginning of the course. Just after the drawbridge and before the crane is a white stone fence on the left. Follow the fence until you see a hole in it. Go through the hole in Championship mode to find a flower crate. This crate unlocks "Handicap - Two Player" on the cheat menu, allowing you to adjust the handicap to Off, Slow, Normal, Fast, or Insane.

Ladybug Color Change
In Inferno Isle, if you go to the first shortcut on the right you will go into a cave. When you get to the open part of the cave where the bridge is, go off the bridge and land on the house, smashing it. Immediately slam on your brakes and stop. Look aroung on the platform and you will see a flower box that will open up a new cheat that will change the pace at which the ladybugs change color in beetle battle.

Major Shortcut in Sunset Sands
For a HUGE shortcut in the sunset sands track, follow the instructions below. In the sunset sands track, drive untill you can see the first sets of vertical pillars, (they are not the natural rock ones in the canyon, they appear when out on the open desert) SLOW DOWN, there will be a path off to the left. Drive down this path and follow it making sure you make it across all the jumps. You will now be in a greenish room, go through the set of round stone "gates" and this will open up a HUGE jump in the room with "glassy" floors.

Follow the road you are on untill you reach this room, then hit a nitro box and hit the jump STRAIGHT on. You will jump onto a platform and there will be another jump in front of you, hit this then when you land, HIT THE BRAKES!! Continue on slowly and when you are on top of a red circle stop, and honk your horn. This will act as an elevator and wil breing you down to an underground track and it will bring you way out in front.

Make Cars Pull Over
Beetle Adventure Racing's computer drivers may take shortcuts and crash into you, but they're still law-abiding drivers. Once you have unlocked the Police Beetle, hold down the left C Button to sound your siren. If you get close, the other drivers will pull over to the side and stop their cars.

Mount Mayhem Cheats
On Mount Mayhem when you get to the part of the chours where theirs no snow you make a right and run through the closest tree.

No Map in Battle Mode
On the Conventry Cove stage, the area where you there are arrows pointing right. Hang a quick left and you will jump and grab a box worth five points. Your car will then land on an island with stone fixtures. Up ahead you can see a ramp with a box worth two points. Behind the fixture on the left,(if you're going too fast you will miss it)you will find a flower box. Crash through the flower box and make your way to the end of the stage to unlock the code to turn off the map in battle mode.

Open Up Battle Stages
Most of the game's Beetle Battle stages are hidden and have to be unlocked before you can square off against your friends.

In order to get them, you need to enter the Championship mode and try to smash all the bonus boxes on the respective tracks. You have to collect all 100 points to unlock a new battle stage. All the battle stages are directly based on their track counterparts. Note that it is not necessary that you come in first in the races, but your points are not counted if you are disqualified.
Tip: Use the Police Beetle to get the tracks. It's fast -- and you can force cars to pull over and take your time to collect the boxes.
