Successfully finish track 4 by killing the Giant Spider boss.
If you're having trouble beating track 4, try playing it on multiplayer, as you can never truly die. A good strategy I found was to go as slow as possible and stay on the leftmost side. Since you're going slow, you should be able to easily dodge all of the red mine-like things he drops. It is crucial to avoid these since they will take out about half of a hit point with max shield upgrades.
Successfully finish track 8 by killing the City Transformer.
If you're having trouble beating track 8, try playing it on multiplayer, as you can never truly die. A good strategy I found was to go as slow as possible and stay on the leftmost side. The boss will drop red mine-like things very slowly, and his followers (things who shoot echoes at you) will only shoot in the middle. Staying on the side guarantees avoiding getting hit by everything (except obstacles).
Race all 8 tracks in one sitting and complete the final track with full shields.
To get this, all eight tracks must be raced IN A ROW. This means that when you finish track 1, you have to press "A" to continue to track 2. If you press "B", you will have to start this over again.
It doesn't matter if you die in any of the tracks, as long as you retry after you died. An easy way to survive is to go as slow as possible, so that enemies can't swarm you.
On track 8, you have to finish with full shields - you don't need to have them full the whole time. To end the track with full shields, make sure you have the highest shield upgrade. When you kill enemies that leave shield powerups, leave them on the ground - they will stay there the entire race. Try to shoot obstacles on the leftmost side, as you'll be sticking to that side during the boss. At the boss, just stick to the leftmost side and shoot.
The boss's damage will appear by the smoke that comes out of him. Each line of smoke means he is hurt 1/4 of his life, with up to three lines of smoke. If you get damaged and he is almost dead, don't kill him - there is no rush. If there are no shield powerups, just continue without getting hit - your vehicle's shield regenerates over time.
Obtain all weapons at least once before exiting the game.
"Exiting the game" for this achievement means literally turning the game off. If you complete a track, you keep all weapons found; quitting in the middle will result in no weapons being obtained.
A common way of doing this achievement is to repeat track 2 over and over again, making sure to focus all attention on picking up weapons. There are five weapons to pick up (Gatling Laser, Shotgun Laser, Soulblade Launcher, Gauss Gun, Rocket Launcher) and an additional two that don't count as weapons (Shield Discharge and Sonic Blast).
Weapon storage is not required - the weapons must be picked up, but don't have to all be with you.
Complete all 8 courses in under 40 minutes. Only your best career times from each track are used.
This can be done quite effortlessly. It's best to get faster times on earlier courses, as they are easiest. On harder courses you can go slow and still get this achievement. If you need to go fast on the later tracks, Shield Discharge and Sonic Blast are a must.
Complete a course in 3 minutes or less.
Purchase the most expensive vehicle and go as fast as possible in track 1. If you're having trouble, purchase the best wheels.
Save up to 1 million coins.
Warning: This achievement requires grinding, meaning it will take a large amount of time to acquire.
Upgrade to the most expensive vehicle and get the strongest shields. Go to track 2 and get the Gatling Laser. Track 5 is the place that gives the most coins.
Make sure to go as slow as possible. The goal is to shoot as many obstacles as you can. Shooting obstacles generates coins. Road blocks will give around 200 - 300 coins each, and there are lots of them. Piggy banks give 350 coins when picked up, but 500 - 1,000 when shot. Fire hydrants will give lots of shield powerups, which give you about 150 coins each when you are at max shields, and 15 when not at max. Gold coins dropped by enemies give 200 coins, but are the lowest priority.
During your first lap, you'll want to shoot all the obstacles you can. Fire hydrants are the most important, while piggy banks are second. Some enemies that you kill will drop shield powerups and piggy banks. Shield Discharge or Sonic Blast are recommended for killing groups of enemies so that you can focus your shots on the obstacles.
On the second lap, you'll want to collect as many coins as possible. If you can, shoot obstacles while you collect the coins. For the third lap, try to collect as much as you can.
Each run will net around 10 - 24 thousand coins, depending on how well you know the course. Getting this achievement will take about 41 - 100 runs.
Collect 1,000 coins.
This achievement should be gained easily after doing track 1 or 2.

For multiplayer, you can die on a booster to go about 400 MPH.
