"Grand Theft Auto IV: Episodes from Liberty City" contains two side stories that are separate from the events of the main game. In one of these stories, titled "The Ballad of Gay Tony," you are challenged to a boat and car race. If you win the race, your opponent and enemy, Mori, promises to leave you alone forever. When you start racing on the street, you can win the race by activating nitro. This gives your car a useful speed boost, allowing you to overtake other drivers.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Start the mission titled "This Ain't Checkers." Race through the water in your boat until you reach the shore.

  2. 2

    Get out of the boat and climb into any of the cars on the road. A nitro meter appears on the screen that lets you know how much nitro is remaining.

  3. 3

    Start driving the car. Hold down the "Circle" button on the PlayStation 3 or "B" on the Xbox 360 to activate the nitro. Release the button to stop using nitro.

Tips and warnings

  • If you use all the nitro in your tank, it will eventually refill.
