It can be tough to get, since you need to find a suitable spot, and a car that’s fast enough. If you wreck the car while landing, or land on anything other than the wheels, you won’t unlock the trophy. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to earn the Testing the Shocks achievement in Mafia 3.

Mafia 3 Testing The Shocks Trophy

First you’ll need an apropriate car. Any sportscar will do, basically, but the best models we’ve tried out were:
  • De’leon Stiletto
  • Samson Duke
  • Delizia 58
  • Smith Moray MX100 (preorder bonus)
Apart from the preorder one, you can get these by skulking around Fresco Fields, the most afluent neighborhood in the game. Sportscars spawn there regularly, so you won’t have to wait for long to find one. If you’re not in a hurry, waiting until you unlock a great car and upgrade it all the way would make the whole thing much easier.

Then you’ll need a good spot. The construction yard in Frisco Fields was good enough for us, but you could use any ramp you like. Go to the end of the road that leads to the ramp, in order to have enough time to accelerate. Keep to the left side of the street. You’ll have to start turning left slowly, before the intersection. Watch out for the traffic. Once you’re near the ramp, try to hit its left side – the right has a bump in front of it.

If you’re going fast enough (105 in our case), and you approach the jump properly, you should make it in no time. Don’t stress if you don’t make it the first time. Practice makes perfect.
