~ 1. Version History ~
Version 1.31 (May 30, 2005) - Long time no update.  I haven't made any huge
changes, but I did add a couple of new items in the Pre-Reading Info that
might help.  Please note that I probably will not be updating this again.  

Version 1.30 (January 31, 2005) - I made some obvious changes like the date,
which was showing 2004 instead of 2005, and thanks to a nice contributor,
I have added two more cars.  He is credited.

Version 1.26 (January 11, 2005) - Added a FAQ section, and added detailed
descriptions of the Locales and obstacles that you might face.

Version 1.06 (January 08, 2005) - added 2005 to the copyright. Possible
changes will come soon, and I will add a strategy section.

Version 1.05 (December 29, 2004) - no major changes, i just made some grammar
changes here and there, and I added one extra line of info.

Version 1.00 (December 27, 2004) - This is the first version, so there is
probably many mistakes, but thats why if you find some, you'll tell me right?
Hope you enjoy the FAQ, I'll periodically add new info as i play the game
more and more, but until I do, let me know of any mistakes or major grammar
errors so i can fix them soon.

~ 7. Locales ~

  There are several Locales to choose to drive in throughout the game.
  These are my descriptions of each location.

- Miami -
  By far the easiest location to drive in.  There is only one really sharp
turn near the end of the loop.  Most of the track has wide roads and give you
lots of room to speed.
Expect to win easily in Miami.

Track Outline: 

  Miami, being one of the easiest tracks, can really only put up a little bit
of info.  First two turns are left and easy to make.  Keep going and 
continue and you'll reach a blueish bridge.  On this bridge there are no
real turns, but there are some cars to watch out for.  Right off the bridge
is a sharpish left turn, at the right end of the turn should be some break
bonus opportunities.  That is followed by another left turn.  Then another
blueish bridge.  This bridge has more cars to deal with than the first one,
but like the first one, it has no big turns.  Right off the bridge is a left
followed by a right.  On your right, try to hit some beach chairs and the
hotdog stand for some break bonus.  Your final turn is a really sharp turn
that can really kill you in a race, be ready to break before you turn.

- Bogota Airport -
  Bogota is a tropical location with several long sharp turns and dirt roads.
However there are lots of long straight streches of road that should keep you
in the lead.  

Track Outline: 

  When you start out in Bogota, you'll start at the Airport.  There should be
some airplanes parked to the right.  You can't crash into them, so don't
worry about trying to get N20 fill-ups.  You'll exit the airport, hit at
least one of the red barrier arms to get some N20 fill up.  You'll enter a
tunnel.  Be aware, in the tunnel there is a sharp turn the left.
Once you leave the tunnel, there are opportunities to fill up
your N20 if you need it.  On the right, there are arrow-turn markers that you
can knock over, and there are trash bins that you can let fly.  The next area
is the Airport terminal, just be aware of trucks that can get in your way.
After the terminal, you enter another tunnel, this time with a sharp right
turn rather than a left.  After you leave the tunnel, the road weaves left
and right and there are a few trash bins to break for N20 bonus.  Right
before the end of the track is a final sharp left, and some break bonus

- New York -
  One of the shortest tracks is New York.  There are many small nuisance 
turns in the City because, well, its a city.  But this too is an easy track 
to drive in.

Track Outline:

  In New York there are so many opportunities for N20 Break Bonus that I just
wont list them here.  Trash cans, Hot Dog Stands, Benches, etc, are all over
the place.  You'll turn a simple right and follow with a long but light left
turn for a very long time right after you start.  Be careful, after that,
is a very sharp left followed by a sharp right, so you'll want to slow down.
After a bit of straight road, come another sharp left, followed by a sharp
right, keep your speed respectable to make it through these easily.  Another
left and right come after the previous one, followed by some straight road.
Then comes the big left turn; which can slow you down really badly if you
haven't slowed down enough already.  The rest is straight road, but just be
careful of other cars in the road.  The key is to stay slow enough to turn
easily without crashing or scraping, while still maintaining a respectable
speed to win.

- Chernobyl Ukraine -
  A long loop with lots of windy turns and not a lot of straight track.  This
one can be difficult especially since roads are tiny and trucks block your
line of sight and at least half of the road.

Track Outline:

  Start out and break some boxes and stuff at the end of the straight strech
for your Break Bonus.  Your first turns will be Left, Right, then Left.
These first three are relatively easy to pass through, I think the 4th is the
one you'll have trouble on the most because it comes really quickly.  Just
be ready for it.  Break some black boxes on your next right turn and after
that you've got a pretty much straight road for a long time.  You'll be
going so fast by the time you reach the next right turn that you'll most
likely hit the yellow arrows on the left.  To avoid this, use your break
while turning.  After that comes a sharp left, do the same here to avoid
hitting the wall.  By the way, driving in the snow has no affect on speed.
On your final turn, break some stuff to get that extra N20 bonus.

- Hong Kong -
  Hong Kong has a period of turning that is hard to get through without 
really slowing down, but there is one very long stretch of straight road that
is perfect to use your N20 on.

Track Outline:

  Since Hong Kong is mostly comprised of small cobbled roads, you'll be 
breaking on your turns a lot.  But there is one very long stretch of straight
road that your N20 will absolutely enjoy.  From the start you'll enjoy a
reasonably straight road, but once you reach the treed highway, a sharp right
turn is the first obstacle.  What follows is a sharp left.  Just try not to
hit the walls.  You'll reach a large two lane highway.  Don't worry about
the trees, you can just drive right through them :).  Before the end of the
highway stretch is a sharp right turn that can be easily driven through
because its a large road.  But, you'll end up back in the cobbled road again.
Several annoying mini turns litter this area, so try to slow down before you
make them.  Finally a sharp right turn, and you'll reach the long home
stretch.  There are some boxes on the left and right to knock over for Break
Bonus, but I would be using that N20 here, since you'll have no disturbances
except for other cars.  You might be able to get in three N20 boosts before
you make a final right turn to the finish line.

- Cuba -
  A long track with wide roads.  You'll be cruising so fast on this one that
when you reach a curve in the road, you wont be prepared to turn.

Track Outline:

  Cuba is relatively easy, but some unexpected turns can screw you over.  You
will start off cruising, but once you reach the VIVE Billboard, slow down
because a right, then a left turn awaits you.  Once you enter the village,
a semi-sharp right turn will greet your car.  Just make sure you have a good
mix of speed and break to make it through easily.  You'll have to make 
another sharp right in the village, followed by a easy left upon leaving the
village.  Pass another VIVE billboard and soon you'll see a tunnel.  After
you exit the tunnel, you'll have to make two demanding right turns in a row,
followed by a demanding left.  And you'll have a clear path to the finish.

- Paris France -
  A relatively easy track with only a couple major turns.  You can cruise
pretty fast on this one, just be aware of cars that have a knack of appearing

Track Outline:

  You'll start with a easy stretch of straight road and a small right turn
onto a blue bridge.  No problem.  After the bridge is a small right and you
are now on a road that goes under the bridges and flies next to the river.
This should be no problem, just dont hit any cars or trucks.  An unexpected
left turn awaits you.  You've been warned.  I didn't expect this the first
time and I hit the right side of the road.  So now you're on a road that 
appears to be headed for the capital.  If you're going over 150, be aware
that two long, but abrupt right turns can hinder your speed.  And a left
onto another bridge can also slow you down a bit.  You'll reach what appears
to be the Arc De Triumphe, and you'll have to make a very long right, but
its easy to get through.  It's basically free road for the rest of the track.

- Las Vegas - 
  Drive along the strip, and then some in Vegas.  Outside of the city the 
roads are small, and hard to maneuver, but in the city, wide lanes provide 
perfect conditions for speeding.

Track Outline:

  You'll start off in the desert.  A very long stretch of road is your first
sight.  No problem.  Then you'll see the Luxor, the NGN, and what looks like
the Paris Hotel.  This is where the road starts turning a bit.  A left at
Paris and a right at Treasure Island.  You'll pass by what looks like Circus
Circus on the left going under some over passes.  At the Bellagio, you'll
meet a sharp right turn.  Then another left once you see the Luxor on your
right again.  You should be back in the desert.  Your first turns are left
then right back in the desert.  The right turn is most difficult.  The rest
is mostly straight road until a final sharp right into the finish line.

- USA Speedway -
  The simplest course.  A simply egg shaped loop around a speedway style 
road. The only other cars on the road besides your opponents are other 
speeding cars, racing for glory.  The perfect speed track.

Track Outline:

  This track needs no real explanation.  It is just one very large loop.
A very continuous left turn and you'll end up back where you started.
