•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Hey, my name is Labmaster and this is a guide for one of the
greatest racing games to come to the handheld. While some may
argue, that V Rally has better graphics, or Mario Kart is more
fun, if you want a simple, no nonsense racing game, this is for
you. In this FAQ I will hopefully guide you through the game so
you can unlock ALL 97 cars, the 3 Extra Modes, and all the Tuning
Parts. Sometimes in the guide I may get my left and rights mixed
up, that’s what you get when you try to stay up until 4am
drinking coke to keep awake (it does kind of work, but it also
acts as a laxative [hah! Complicated word!]).

If you want a car guide, go get Emery0083’s or TheWhy’s there’s
not much point in me replicating one here. And if you don’t know
how to get a car, just press CTRL + F and search for it’s name.

4.) General Notes - How to beat the Game

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Firsts, you have to get Gold medals on ALL of the tracks in
Championship Mode in ALL Classes. This includes Licenses. You
will then unlock an Expert Mode, where you will have to do
exactly what you just did, in Expert Mode, i.e. the races are
harder, the Time Limits are smaller. THEN you will unlock the
three Extra Modes: Radio Con(trol), Kart and Wireframe. Now you
have to race all those tracks again, in Quick Race mode. Finally
you have to get the last 6 cars from Drift Combo mode. Then you
SHOULD have all the cars, tuning parts, extra modes and tracks!

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

5.) Driving Tips

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

This game is actually all about driving, if you haven’t realised
yet. Here’s a variety of tips to help you.

Drifting
========

Drifting, also called power sliding or fish tailing is a
technique which involves you ‘sliding’ the car around the
corners. Basically, if you can’t do this, you won’t be able to
beat the game. There are two reasons: One, if you can’t, you
probably won’t get all the licences and two, you need to be able
to drift for the Drift Combo part. Duh!

To drift, you start turning early, and brake into the corner,
then accelerate out. Sometimes, if you’re going fast enough and
it's not to tight a corner you don’t have to brake.

Racing Styles
=============

There’s two racing styles I use: The ‘proper’ style, and the
‘try-to-kill-yourself’ style. The latter only works on circuit
tracks, and only if you have a fast car. I used it in the Quick
Race mode to unlock the Fairlady Z Z32, and basically, you just
forget your brakes and go around like crazy. And it works.
The other style doesn’t really need any explanation.

Cornering
=========

Most of these have been ‘borrowed’ from Emery0083, because he
seems to have summed it up better than I could. There are three
kinds of normal turns, plus two uhh, ‘abnormal turns’. These are:

Blue   : These are ‘easy’ corners.
Orange : Mid’s
Red    : These are either hairpins, or ‘hards’.
S Bend : These are usually composed of a hairpin and a mid.
Chicane: These are easy, just go through them diagonally.

[Taking Corners (AT)]

Blue corners pose no real threat at all, just blow around them.

Yellow corners are not difficult either. Though when going around one
it would be smart to let off the gas for just a bit.

Orange corners can be difficult. These require a bit more finesse.
Hold the gas and drift your way around the corner, more then likely you will
need to hit the brake some in the middle of the turn to keep
better traction.

Red corners are the hardest. These are mostly hairpin turns.
What you need to do is brake about two car lengths before you get to
the red and white striped borders on the corner. The you need to
start drifting your car alternating between gas and brake.

[Taking Corners (MT)]

Blue corners pose no real threat when driving a MT car either.

Yellow corners are not difficult in MT either. Just follow the same
instructions for AT cars.

Orange corners need a bit more in MT. While still holding the gas
your car will begin to drift its way around the corner. Near the
middle of the corner you will need to hit the brakes some and shift
down one gear. Re-apply the gas and brake as needed to straighten
out and keep traction. When you feel comfortable and are out of the
drifting shift back up when needed.

Dark orange corners are the hardest. You will need to brake around
three car lengths before the corner and drop one gear. Now drift
around the corner holding the gas. In mid-corner again hit the brake
and drop a gear if needed. Straighten out your car and if you can
go up one gear. Continue through the corner and you got it.

Course Types
============

There are four course types, each with it’s own attributes.

Circuit: These are normal, racing circuit tracks, with no walls,
         just grass. Actually there are some walls, but not right
         up against the track.
Highway: These are composed of mainly ‘hard’ turns and are raced
         on surprise, surprise, Highways! In Championship Mode
         these races will always be at night.
City   : This is a bit like Highway, except there are narrower
         roads, etc...
Winding: These are REALLY slow. Mostly hairpins.

Weather
=======

There are three weather conditions in this game.

Fine: This doesn’t affect your car’s performance in anyway.
Cloudy: Apart from the sky (which might put you off a teeny bit)
        this shouldn’t affect you either.
Rain: Yay. Rain. Handling is severely reduced, more slippin’ and
      Slidin’.

Times of Day
============

Noon: The ‘time-of-no-shadows’ (okay, I used to watch Rugrats
      when I was little). Easy to drive.
Evening: The sky’s a bit red, but that’s all.
Night: This is REALLY annoying. I put it down to the lously
       programmers not being able to blend in the lights. So
       they have to make it flickery. Grrrr.

6.) Championship Mode

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

In this section, I will give you step by step guides on how to
beat ALL of the tracks in this guide. In fact, I’m so generous
I’m going to give them to you TWICE. Once for normal, once for
Professional. So strap yourself in for lots of racing action!

=================================================================

Hornet

Unlocks    : Toyota Corolla Levin AE86 (TUNED)
Record     : 1'38"71
Description: The course kicks off with an easy enough left. You
             can then stretch out on a long straight before
             negotiating  middle left. Another straight leads
             into a hairpin which you will want to start turning
             for quite early but leave the brakes out until you
             reach the corner. After a mid right you'll be faced
             with another hairpin which is the toughest corner of
             the course.
             1st lap: 5th
             2nd lap: 3rd
             Finish : 1st! Easy!

=================================================================

Local Dog

Unlocks    : Filter (Special), Daihatsu MAX GQSZ
Record     : 1'53"36
Description: Forward after the line and you'll hit an easy left.
             After a short stretch cruise into an easy mid right
             and another mid-left. Another mid-right and you'll
             be faced with a hairpin that you can just slide
             around. After an easy left then a tiny right (you
             don't have to turn for it) you'll be faced with
             another hairpin that you should brake quite early
             for. Mid-right then a succession of mid-lefts will
             get you to the finish.
             1st lap: 6th
             2nd lap: 3rd
             Finish : Another easy win!

=================================================================

Big Core

Unlocks    : Toyota MR-S ZZW30
Record     : 1'49"11
Description: This course only has 2 parts that may pose you
             trouble. An easy left leads into a long straight
             then another two easy-lefts with a straight in
             between. Start turning by the time the you reach
             the red borders and you'll be fine. At the end
             of the straight you'll reach a left hairpin.
             You'll need to start braking 2-3 car lengths
             before the turn then accelerate out. Don't be
             afraid to run into that tree. After a mid-right
             you'll see an exclamation mark come up but
             don't be too afraid. The course will narrow a
             bit and you'll have to do a mid-right. The
             course will then return to its former width.
             Now the other hard part: If you're not careful
             with the upcoming hairpin and you go onto the
             grass you risk the chance of spinning out. It's
             quite easy to do this. Remember: Brake in,
             turn, accelerate out.

             1st lap: 6th, possibly 5th.
             2nd lap: 2nd or 3rd
             Finish : Another, rather simple win. Just be
                      careful on the last couple of corners.

=================================================================

Plastic Bomb

Unlocks    : CPU (Special), Mazda MX-5 Milan MPS
Record     : 2'11"70
Description: Go forward and you'll face an easy right,
             followed by a straight and another easy right.
             You'll then face a hard-right then an easy right
             which actually isn't that easy because the road
             narrows. After an easy left (try not to over-
             run) there's a left chicane. There will then
             be a hard right followed by a nice long straight.
             Start turning for the next hard quite early
             and you won't have a problem.
             1st lap: 5th
             2nd lap: 2nd, or even 1st.
             Finish : Easy win!

=================================================================

Night Kids

Unlocks    : Nissan Silva S14
Record     : 2'15"70
Description: The race starts off with a succession of easy
             lefts, which shouldn't pose a problem to you. The
             road will then appear to fork, but the right road
             is blocked so swing your car to the left. At the
             end of the narrow straight is a hairpin which you
             will want to brake for. Another long straight
             then a right HP followed closely by a left. After
             another straight you'll hit an easy right then a
             mid-left.
             1st lap: 5th
             2nd lap: 4th, possible 3rd.
             Finish : As long as you're cornering is up to
                      scratch you'll cross the line first.

=================================================================

Hello World

Unlocks    : Muffler (Steel), Subaru IMPREZA WRX STi version
             VI GC8
Record     : 2'12"16
Description: This track is quite a bit harder than the previous
             ones and it took me a while to finish it. I used
             the Mitsubishi LANCER GSR Evolution III, you might
             have another preference.
             Go forward and then you'll be faced with an 'S'
             bend. Some are a mid-left/right followed by a
             hairpin right/left and others are reversed. You'll
             have to keep an eye on your map while racing.
             Anyway, take the 'S', braking on the hairpin part.
             Accelerate out and there'll be 2 mid rights in a
             row. After a straight take the easy right followed
             by the easy-left and another straight, where you'll
             find a right hairpin. Go forward and the next S
             bend will be a left HP followed by a right HP.
             Go down the nice long straight then turn early for
             the mid-right and cruise over the finish.
             1st lap: 5th
             2nd lap: 3rd
             Finish : 1st, as long as you don't cut too many
                      corners :) and corner intelligently.

=================================================================

Doco Moco

Unlocks    : Suzuki MR wagon SUZUKI SPORT MF21S
Record     : 2'50"53
Description: Another night race on the streets, this track is
             made up of right angled turns only (except the
             last corner which is a hairpin). The key to this
             is your car selection, a nice fast car would be
             good (i.e. not a wagon, truck etc...).
             You'll start on a nice long straight but don't be
             fooled by the width of the highway, it gets
             narrower. At the end of this, take a right. Then
             there's another long straight followed by a right,
             then yet another straight followed by a right.
             After this there's... another straight followed by
             a right, although this straight is shorter. After
             a short straight there'll be ANOTHER right then
             two quick lefts. After another slightly longer
             straight you'll take a left then hit the hairpin,
             which is just two rights stuck together. FINISH!
             1st lap: 5th
             2nd lap: 4th, hopefully 3rd
             Finish : Win!

=================================================================

Peak Peak

Unlocks    : Suspension (Spring), Daihatsu Copen
Record     : 2'37"66
Description: The race starts off with a mid right. After an easy
             right and an easy left you'll hit to mid rights in
             a row. Then there's an easy-left and a straight.
             You'll now get a '!'. Brake early and take the
             corner with brakes all the way. The ! was there
             because the track narrows down substantially.
             Now you'll face a series of HP's. Left, right, left
             right. Then you'll hit the finish.
             1st lap: 5th
             2nd lap: 3rd
             Finish : Another win, not too easy but manageable.

=================================================================

  Medium Class
=================================================================

Licence Corner 1

Test Car   : Sprinter Trueno
Course     : Corner
Time Limit : 00'14"90
Notes      : This is a 90-degree turn. Refer to the notes on

             corners.

=================================================================

Licence Corner 3

Test Car   : CIVIC TypeR
Course     : Complex

Notes      : Made up of an easy left then a mid-left. Takes
             a bit of practice. Refer to notes on Licences
             for tips.

=================================================================

Micro Coat

Unlocks    : Honda S2000 AP1
Record     : 2'00"16
Description: I'm a little embarrassed to say this but it
             took me a while to get this gold. I eventually
             found out that I hadn't tuned the car to the
             max and after I changed to the Impreza my
             top speed had risen 30mph! Always tune!
             The track kicks off with a right HP. After an
             easy left and a couple of easy rights you'll
             face another right hairpin then a left HP. A
             couple of mid-rights then an easy left finishes
             off the race.
             1st lap: 5th, maybe even 4th
             2nd lap: 2nd
             Finish : Easy first!

=================================================================

Gateway

Unlocks    : LSD (Special), Toyota Celica ZZT231
Record     : 2'14"13
Description: This track is corners, corners, corners. If you
             can corner, you can win.
             Straight off the line and you'll hit a mid-right.
             It's rather drawn out and doesn't require brakes.
             Then an easy left followed by a succession of
             mid-rights which form the 'bulb' part of the
             track. Then there's a left HP, which doesn't
             require brakes either followed by another easy
             left and a right HP. Go down the straight and a
             mid-right leads into another straight and the
             finish line.
             1st lap: 5th
             2nd lap: 3rd, 2nd if you're really good
             Finish : Another easy win.

=================================================================

Runner Way

Unlocks    : Toyota Supra JZA70
Record     : 4'07"98
Description: Once again, the Impreza excels on this track.
             It is basically just 90 deg. turns, but some
             are listed as hairpins. These are just two
             mid's in a row, and you won't get to straighten
             up in between.
             Start off with a left hairpin. Don't turn to hard
             for the second half. Then, two hard rights in a
             row, but with a gap in between. After that
             there'll be two hard lefts, followed by a straight
             and another left. After an easy right HP then a
             left HP you'll be able to let that car rip on a
             nice long straight. Then a left HP and a right
             HP that you'll want to brake early for. A hard
             left takes you to the chequered flag.
             1st lap: 4th if you're good
             2nd lap: 3rd
             Finish : 1st!

Sprint Maze

Unlocks    : Engine (Light Tune) Honda CIVIC TypeR EP3
Record     : 2'00"68
Description: Another street race, the key to this is to
             not bump into the walls, which is quite easy.
             It starts off with a easy right (actually, I
             think it might be two rights). You'll then get
             a warning, because the track is about to split.
             Position yourself in the second lane from the
             left and get ready for the fork. Once it forks
             you'll get two mid-rights followed by an easy-
             right then an easy left. Next up is a left HP
             which you'll want to brake for. After a
             straight you'll get two mid-rights followed by
             another straight, a right chicane, and yet
             another mid-right to the finish.
             1st lap: 5th
             2nd lap: 3rd
             Finish : 1st, though it may take a couple of
                      attempts and it'll be pretty tight.

Beat Sweet

Unlocks    : Mazda RX-8
Record     : 02'23"88
Description: This track is all about braking at the right
             time. It starts off with a mid-right into an
             easy left. After a short straight you'll want
             to start braking for the left HP which leads
             into a weird kind of corner. Just cut it.
             After that you'll get two mid-rights in a row
             which require average braking. Now for a nice
             long straight. Drift around the left HP at
             the end and brake a tiny bit into the easy
             left. Brake again into the mid-right and get
             set for another straight. At the end of this
             you'll face another mid-right, and if it's
             not your final lap, drift through to the
             mid-right once you've passed the finish.
             1st lap: 5th
             2nd lap: 3rd

Super Pass

Unlocks    : Weight (Special) , Nissan SILVA S15
Record     : 3'33"13
Description: This is another track that focuses on braking, with
             an added twist: rain. Actually, it’s not as hard as
             it looks: I managed to get to first by the end of
             the second lap. It starts off with a straight then a
             mid-left. After a short straight you'll get and S
             bend (mid left to right HP) then a couple of mid-
             lefts. After along straight rush madly around the
             two mid-lefts and ignore that warning sign. Yes,
             I'm being serious. Now for a series of hairpins.
             They go right, left, right, left. The basic strategy
             for these is to slide around them, braking quite
             early and judging your turn and acceleration times
             well. To some it comes naturally, to most it
             requires a fair amount of practice.
             1st lap: 5th
             2nd lap: 3rd, 2nd, even 1st
             Finish : Judge the corners well and get an
                      easy win.

Great Reef

Unlocks    : Honda INTEGRA TypeR DC5
Record     : 2'23"93
Description: Not another Highway race. This is another track
             that relies on good braking, but don't they all?
             All corners are either hard's or hairpins.
             Forward off the line and it's left. Now you'll get
             a warning. Here you'll have to pull off a hairpin
             turn, in driving school they'd call it a 'U-turn'
             because you're just doubling back on the same road.
             Start turning early and brake heavily. Don't hit
             the traffic island. After a straight and a right
             there'll be another nice long straight then a right
             into another straight. Be careful with that right,
             make sure you turn into the right (left) side of the
             road. The next hard right you'll have a bit of lee-
             way on the pavement but try to stay off. Then
             another right that requires substantial braking
             (don't get jammed up next to the yellow border).
             After yet another straight it's a hard left into the
             finish.
             1st lap: 6th, 5th if you're good
             2nd lap: 3rd
             Finish : Comfortable first.

Record     : 3'21"60
Description: This is quite an annoying track to finish off
             medium class, purely because it's night. Those
             lights can really put you off... Also, the road is
             quite narrow.
             The race starts off with an easy left into a mid-
             right. Then there's an easy right, followed by a
             mid right, then a left HP. Brake for all of these.
             Out of the hairpin into an easy left, then two
             mid rights in a row. After that there's another
             left HP followed by an easy right. Time your hard
             right nicely then it's easy right, easy left. Then
             there's an S bend followed by a short straight,
             hard right, and another S bend in to the finish.
             1st lap: 5th
             2nd lap: 3rd
             Finish : Win! You've completed Medium Class!

             the first hairpin, and turn early, almost cutting
             the corner, no brakes. You should stay on the track
             and not lose too much speed. You've got your

Mountain Dop

Unlocks     : Subaru LEGACY B4 BE5
Record      : 3'16"48
Description : I love cornering on this track, they're so smooth
              and flow together nicely. Anyway, before you get
              started, the 'hairpins' on this track are very
              wide and loose, so don't oversteer.
              Go straight off the line and get set for a mid
              left, followed by an easy left and an easy right.
              Now for the first hairpin. You'll want to brake,
              accelerate, brake, accelerate while turning to
              keep a smooth path. Once out it's straight into
              an easy left then an easy right, followed by a
              mid right. After the straight, it's another mid
              right and a straight, followed by the second
              hairpin, this time to the right. Use the technique
              described above. Then it's straight into another
              left hairpin, a tiny easy right then two mid lefts.
              After another straight take the mid left into the
              final stretch.
              1st lap: 5th

              this one a bit sharper. Four easy rights lead
              into yet another S bend (lr) which requires heavy
              braking. After a straight there's a right HP,
              followed by a straight, easy right then a difficult
              (BRAKE!) left HP to finish off.
              1st lap: 6th
              2nd lap: 4th

Unlocks     : Toyota MARK II Tourer V JZX90

Description : This is one of those courses you'll have to redo a
              couple of times to get the cornering right.
              After the straight the road will narrow a lane just
              before you go into a right HP. Then there's a mid
              left just before you go into another right HP.
              An easy left leads into a left HP, which requires A
              LOT of braking then a straight. After a mid-right
              the road will revert back to it's original width
              before a left HP. There will then be a nice long
              straight with a tiny right chicane somewhere in the
              middle before a mid right. Another long straight
              with a slight bend to the right then an easy right
              leads to the finish.
              1st lap: 6th
              2nd lap: 3rd, possibly 2nd
              Finish : Win!

              into hard left into straight, caution weird
              corner <End>. Once you get up to the end of the
              straight, your GBA will proclaim a hard left. DON'T
              turn a hard left, turn a mid-easy left, and go
              diagonally through that left-right-left. Now for a
              long straight terminating with a left HP that you
              should brake most of the way around. You've reached
              an annoying part now: hard left, right, left, right.
              If you don't brake enough you'll go crashing in the
              sides. Then there's a hard right and a straight
              before you get to a left HP. This is actually a
              misnomer as if you treat it like the HP before
              you won't get round the corner. Instead you have
              to stop turning for a second or two, then continue
              around the second half. Then it's just a short
              straight to the line.
              1st lap: 6th, possibly 5th
              2nd lap: 4th
              Finish : 1st, though it might take a while, and be

              The race kicks of with an S bend (lr). Then
              there's a mid-right followed by a caution, as the

              can just cruise straight through. After that
              there’s a difficult hard right left right. You’ll
              have to brake for most of this. Then it’s a hard

               you have to catch up to. Anyway, go forward to the
               easy left, then there’s a mid-right, followed by

               there’s two easy lefts a mid right, another easy
               left and a mid right. All of these corners will
               require heavy braking. Then it’s two mid rights
               and a short straight into a left hairpin, that
               you’ll have to brake like crazy for. Into the
               next mid right, then another and an easy left.
               you’ll have to brake for another left HP, then

             of going through the chicane nicely, I went hard-ish

              The first part of the S bend you won’t have to
              brake for but it’s the second part that determines
              whether you’ll do well. You have to time your
              braking and accelerating perfectly so you don’t
              lose any speed. Then it’s right chicane and a hard
              left to the finish. You shouldn’t have to brake
              for the left, and you can cut the corner by a very
              small distance without failing.

Description : This is a very SLOW track. Lots of hairpins and
              tight turns equals lots of braking.
              The track starts off with a straight, the only
              straight on the course. Then there’s a right HP,
              followed by a short straight, a left HP then
              another right HP. After two mid lefts there’s
              a right HP. An easy right leads into a right HP
              followed by a mid left then a left HP. Straight
              after this there’s an S bend (lr) then an easy
              left. After this there’s a right HP followed by
              an easy right. You have to turn a bit harder for
              this corner. After an easy right and a mid left
              there’s an easy left leading into a right HP.
              There’s then an easy right followed by a left HP.
              After an easy right there’s a tricky right HP.
              You’ll have to brake hard for this, turning as
              you go. Then it’s just a straight into the
              finish.
              1st lap: 6th
              2nd lap: 4th
              Finish : 1st. It might be a bit tight but you
                       Should get there.

Knock Down

Unlocks     : Engine (Full Tuned), Mazda RX-7 FD3S
Record      : 3’07”15
Description : Yay! A highway track. Not too many corners :).
              Off the line there’s a long straight then a hard
              right. After a very long straight there’s a hard
              right that’ll need a bit of braking then another
              straight followed by a hard right, then another
              two hard rights. Now there’s two slow mid lefts
              followed by a straight, then a left HP. Now
              there’s a hard right followed by two easy rights
              and a hard right to the end.
              1st lap: 5th
              2nd lap: 3rd
              Finish : An easy win!

Terrible Mountain

Unlocks     : Mitsubishi GTO Z16A
Record      : 5’12”55
Description : There’s no mountain, but it’s definitely terrible.
              This is just like Assault: A SLOW track. Maybe even
              slower.
              For this track I’m not going to do the usual
              commentary/description thing. Just a list of
              corners, with comments where necessary.
              Easy left, unmentioned easy right. Mid left,
              mid left, mid right, right HP, left HP: heavy
              braking. Easy left, easy left, easy right, left HP.
              mid right, easy left, left HP. Mid right, easy
              left, right HP. Mid right, easy left, easy right,
              left HP. Easy right, easy left, right HP (big
              slide). Mid right, easy right, left HP. Straight!
              S bend (lr), left HP, easy right, Finish!
              1st lap: 4th
              2nd lap: 3rd
              Finish : 1st, easily, because you should have
                       plenty of time.

Skyscraper

Unlocks     : Nissan SKYLINE GT-R BNR34
Record      : 2’26”32
Description : This is a very odd track, because it’s a highway
              with easies and mid’s and curved hairpins. It’s all
              about taking corners at very high speeds.
              The course starts off with a straight followed by
              a series of easies: right, right, left then a right
              HP. Then there’s a left HP followed by two mid
              rights. If you are good, you’ll be able to slide
              nicely around the next hard right. It takes a bit
              of practice but isn’t to hard. Then there’s a
              tight left HP, a right HP, then a short sprint to
              the finish.
              1st lap: 6th, almost 5th
              2nd lap: 3rd
              Finish : 1st. If you find you’re just not fast
                       enough, make sure you’re using the GTO
                       or the Impreza, fully tuned. Also try
                       not to bump into those sides, they
                       really slow you down.

Slippery

Unlocks     : Toyota ARISTO JZS161
Record      : 3’43”20
Description : A very complex track with quite a few tricky
              corners.
              After the short straight there’s a hard right then
              an easy left. After two mid lefts there’s a straight
              followed by an easy left then an S bend (lr). You’ll
              probably have to start braking once you get to the
              easy left then drift around. Once out there’s a left
              HP which needs a lot of brakes then a right HP, which
              is even harder. Following that there’s a hard right
              then an easy right then a long straight which ends in
              a (caution) easy left followed by a hairpin. You have
              to be very careful on this corner and brake very hard.
              Try to drift around the whole thing on brakes. It’s
              then just a straight to the finish.
              1st lap: 5th
              2nd lap: 2nd
              Finish : Easy win!

Record       : 5’28”55
Description  : This is another course with lots of corners. The
               average speed is about 80mph so it doesn’t really
               matter what car you choose, as long as its
               acceleration isn’t bad. Once again, I will be just
               listing the corners with a couple of notes.
               Mid left, right HP, left HP, right HP: Don’t
               oversteer. Left HP, right HP, easy left, hard

               Finish : 1st! Shouldn’t be too hard.

Unlocks    : Daihatsu midget II K100P (TUNED)
Record     : 1'38"71
Description: The course kicks off with an easy enough left. You
             can then stretch out on a long straight before
             negotiating  middle left. Another straight leads
             into a hairpin which you will want to start turning
             for quite early braking as well. After a mid right
             you'll be faced with another hairpin. A LOT of
             braking is required for this. Then it’s just a short
             distance to the straight.
             1st lap: 8th, don’t be too worried
             2nd lap: 4th

             and another mid-left. An easy-right and you'll
             be faced with a hairpin that you can just slide
             around. After an easy left then a tiny right (you
             don't have to turn for it) you'll be faced with
             another hairpin that you should brake quite early
             for. Mid-right then a succession of mid-lefts will
             get you to the finish.
             1st lap: 8th

Big Core

Unlocks    : Nissan MARCH AK11 (Tuned)
Record     : 1'49"11
Description: An easy left leads into a long straight
             then another two easy lefts with a straight in
             between. Start turning by the time the you reach
             the red borders and you'll be fine. At the end
             of the straight you'll reach a left hairpin.
             You'll need to start braking 2-3 car lengths
             before the turn then accelerate out. After a mid
             right you'll see an exclamation mark come up but
             don't be too afraid. The course will narrow a
             bit and you'll have to do a mid right. The
             course will then return to its former width.
             Now it’s just a hairpin to the finish. Don’t
             be too worried if you go onto the grass, at
             the speed you’re going at it shouldn’t matter.
             1st lap: 8th

             You'll then face a hard right then an easy right
             which actually isn't that easy because the road
             narrows. After an easy left (try not to over-
             run) there's a left chicane. There will then
             be a hard right followed by a nice long straight.
             Start turning for the next hard quite early
             and you won't have a problem.

             road will then appear to fork, but the right road
             is blocked so swing your car to the left. At the
             end of the narrow straight is a hairpin which you
             will want to brake for. Another long straight
             then a right HP followed closely by a left. After
             another straight you'll hit an easy right then a

             followed by the easy-left and another straight, where
             you'll find a right hairpin. Go forward and the next
             S bend will be a lr. Go down the nice long straight

Unlocks    : Toyota Supra JZA70
Record     : 2'50"53
Description: Another night race on the streets, this track is
             made up of right angled turns only (except the
             last corner which is a hairpin).
             You'll start on a nice long straight but don't be
             fooled by the width of the highway, it gets
             narrower. At the end of this, take a right. Then
             there's another long straight followed by a right,
             then yet another straight followed by a right.
             After this there's... another straight followed by
             a right, although this straight is shorter. After
             a short straight there'll be ANOTHER right then
             two quick lefts. After another slightly longer
             straight you'll take a left then hit the hairpin,
             which is just two rights stuck together. You can
             drift all the way around this.
             1st lap: 6th

Description: The race starts off with a mid-right. After an easy
             right and an easy left you'll hit to mid rights in
             a row. Then there's an easy-left and a straight.
             You'll now get a '!'. Brake early and take the
             corner with brakes all the way. The ! was there
             because the track narrows down substantially.
             Now you'll face a series of HP's. Left, right, left
             right. Then you'll hit the finish.
             1st lap: 6th or 5th
             2nd lap: 3rd

             require brakes either followed by another easy
             left and a right HP. Go down the straight and a

Runner Way

Unlocks    : Nissan SILEIGHTY RPS13 (Tuned)
Record     : 4'07"98
Description: It is basically just 90 deg. turns, but some
             are listed as hairpins.
             Start off with a left hairpin. Don't turn to hard
             for the second half. Then, two hard rights in a
             row, but with a gap in between. After that
             there'll be two hard lefts, followed by a straight
             and another left. After an easy right HP then a
             left HP you'll be able to let that car rip on a
             nice long straight. Then a left HP and a right
             HP that you'll want to brake early for. A hard
             left takes you to the chequered flag.
             1st lap: 5th (yes, you’ll probably be lapped right
                      at the start)

Record     : 2'00"68
Description: Another street race, the key to this is to
             not bump into the walls, which is quite easy.
             It starts off with a easy right (actually, I
             think it might be two rights). You'll then get
             a warning, because the track is about to split.
             Position yourself in the second lane from the
             left and get ready for the fork. Once it forks
             you'll get two mid-rights followed by an easy-
             right then an easy left. Next up is a left HP
             which you'll want to brake for. After a
             straight you'll get two mid-rights followed by
             another straight, a right chicane, and yet
             another mid-right to the finish.
             1st lap: 6th

Beat Sweet

Unlocks    : Subaru LEGACY Touring Wagon BH5
Record     : 02'23"88
Description: This track is all about braking at the right
             time. It starts off with a mid-right into an
             easy left. After a short straight you'll want
             to start braking for the left HP which leads
             into a weird kind of corner. Just cut it.
             After that you'll get two mid-rights in a row
             which require average braking. Now for a nice
             long straight. Drift around the left HP at
             the end and brake a tiny bit into the easy
             left. Brake again into the mid-right and get
             set for another straight. At the end of this
             you'll face another mid-right, and if it's
             not your final lap, drift through to the
             mid-right once you've passed the finish.
             1st lap: 6th or 5th

Super Pass

Unlocks    : Toyota SPRINTER TRUENO AE86 (Tuned)
Record     : 3'33"13
Description: This is another track that focuses on braking, with
             an added twist: rain. Actually, it’s not as hard as
             it looks: I managed to get to first by the end of
             the second lap. It starts off with a straight then a
             mid-left. After a short straight you'll get and S
             bend (mid left to right HP) then a couple of mid-
             lefts. After along straight rush madly around the
             two mid-lefts and ignore that warning sign. Yes,
             I'm being serious. Now for a series of hairpins.
             They go right, left, right, left. The basic strategy
             for these is to slide around them, braking quite
             early and judging your turn and acceleration times
             well.
             1st lap: 5th
             2nd lap: 3rd
             Finish : Easy win.

Great Reef

Unlocks    : Toyota MR-S ZZW30
Record     : 2'23"93
Description: Forward off the line and it's left. Now you'll get
             a warning. Here you'll have to pull off a hairpin
             turn, in driving school they'd call it a 'U-turn'
             because you're just doubling back on the same road.
             Start turning early and brake heavily. Don't hit
             the traffic island. After a straight and a right
             there'll be another nice long straight then a right
             into another straight. Be careful with that right,
             make sure you turn into the right (left) side of the
             road. The next hard right you'll have a bit of lee-
             way on the pavement but try to stay off. Then
             another right that requires substantial braking
             (don't get jammed up next to the yellow border).
             After yet another straight it's a hard left into the
             finish.
             1st lap: 6th
             2nd lap: 5th or 4th
             Finish : First, but not as easy as last time.

Description: The race starts off with an easy left into a mid-
             right. Then there's an easy right, followed by a
             mid right, then a left HP. Brake for all of these.
             Out of the hairpin into an easy left, then two
             mid rights in a row. After that there's another
             left HP followed by an easy right. Time your hard
             right nicely then it's easy right, easy left. Then
             there's an S bend followed by a short straight,
             hard right, and another S bend in to the finish.
             1st lap: 6th
             2nd lap: 3rd

Licence Corner 1

Test Car   : FTO
Course     : S Curve

Notes      : Extremely simple. Basically a mid right followed
             by a mid left. GOLD it easily.

=================================================================

Licence Corner 2

Test Car   : MR-S
Course     : S Curve 2
Time Limit : 00'20"11
Notes      : I found that the best approach is to forget your
             brakes and whiz round the corners with your foot on
             the gas. Time the corners correctly and you’ll get a
             GOLD.

=================================================================

Licence Corner 3

Test Car   : S2000
Course     : Hornet
Time Limit : 00'30"20
Notes      : Remember this? It's the first track in Beginners
             Class. The secret to getting GOLD is to go wide on
             the first hairpin, and turn early, almost cutting
             the corner, no brakes. You should stay on the track
             and not lose too much speed. You've got your
             Licence! It’ll probably take a while to get it, but
             persevere.

Mountain Dop

Unlocks     : Nissan SKYLINE GT-R BNR32
Record      : 3'16"48
Description : Go straight off the line and get set for a mid
              left, followed by an easy left and an easy right.
              Now for the first hairpin. You'll want to brake,
              accelerate, brake, accelerate while turning to
              keep a smooth path. Once out it's straight into
              an easy left then an easy right, followed by a
              mid right. After the straight, it's another mid
              right and a straight, followed by the second
              hairpin, this time to the right. Use the technique
              described above. Then it's straight into another
              left hairpin, a tiny easy right then two mid lefts.
              After another straight take the mid left into the
              final stretch.
              1st lap: 6th

Drag Marker

Unlocks     : Subaru IMPREZA WRX Sti GDB (Tuned)
Record      : 2'45"25
Description : There are two ways, you can do this track, the
              proper ‘stay-on-track’ way, or the ‘go-real-fast-
              and-try-to-kill-yourself’ way. Not surprisingly,
              I took the second option, and won easily, so it’s
              really up to you.
              First turn is a mid right then an S bend (rl)
              followed by a mid right and another S bend (rl),
              this one a bit sharper. Four easy rights lead
              into yet another S bend (lr) which requires heavy
              braking. After a straight there's a right HP,
              followed by a straight, easy right then a difficult
              (BRAKE!) left HP to finish off.
              1st lap: 5th
              2nd lap: 3rd, possibly 2nd
              Finish : 1st, might take a couple of tries though.

Out Run

Unlocks     : Toyota CHASER Tourer V JZX100
Record      : 3'04"81
Description : This is one of those courses you'll have to redo a
              couple of times to get the cornering right.
              After the straight the road will narrow a lane just
              before you go into a right HP. Then there's a mid
              left just before you go into another right HP.
              An easy left leads into a left HP, which requires A
              LOT of braking then a straight. After a mid-right
              the road will revert back to it's original width
              before a left HP. There will then be a nice long
              straight with a tiny right chicane somewhere in the
              middle before a mid right. Another long straight
              with a slight bend to the right then an easy right
              leads to the finish.
              1st lap: 6th
              2nd lap: 4th, possibly 3rd
              Finish : Win!

About Way

Unlocks     : Toyota Supra JZA80 (Tuned)
Record      : 3'42"35
Description : Rain. Rain. Rain. Another Highway track with rain.
              You have to be careful because lots of hards in a
              row equals trouble.
              <Rally car racer voice> Hard left, into hard right,
              into hard left into straight, caution weird
              corner <End>. Once you get up to the end of the
              straight, your GBA will proclaim a hard left. DON'T
              turn a hard left, turn a mid-easy left, and go
              diagonally through that left-right-left. Now for a
              long straight terminating with a left HP that you
              should brake most of the way around. You've reached
              an annoying part now: hard left, right, left, right.
              If you don't brake enough you'll go crashing in the
              sides. Then there's a hard right and a straight
              before you get to a left HP. This is actually a
              misnomer as if you treat it like the HP before
              you won't get round the corner. Instead you have
              to stop turning for a second or two, then continue
              around the second half. Then it's just a short
              straight to the line.
              1st lap: 6th, possibly 5th
              2nd lap: 4th
              Finish : 1st, though it might take a while, and be
                       a close finish.

Description : For the S bends, and some of the mids on
              this track, you will require a fair bit of
              braking, so be careful.
              The race kicks of with an S bend (lr). Then
              there's a mid-right followed by a caution, as the
              road narrows. There's then a mid-left, followed by
              a mid-right and a straight, followed by another S
              bend (lr). It's then just a mid-right to the
              finish.

              another mid right then an easy left followed by an
              easy right. If you go to the right most lane you
              can just cruise straight through. After that
              there’s a difficult hard right left right. You’ll
              have to brake for most of this. Then it’s a hard
              right followed by and easy right then a hairpin
              followed by two mid rights. There’s then an easy
              left into the finish.

              2nd lap: 4th or 3rd

Description : I’ll never get the name of this course, however...
               Just as you get off glance to your right and
               you'll see a car turning the corner: that’s where
               you have to catch up to. Anyway, go forward to the
               easy left, then there’s a mid-right, followed by
               an easy left, easy right and a mid right. Then
               there’s two easy lefts a mid right, another easy
               left and a mid right. All of these corners will
               require heavy braking. Then it’s two mid rights
               and a short straight into a left hairpin, that
               you’ll have to brake like crazy for. Into the
               next mid right, then another and an easy left.
               you’ll have to brake for another left HP, then
               you’ll have to go round the final loop: easy
               left, mid right, short straight, mid right,

             While, then suddenly, out of the blue, I somehow
             got 15”66. This is what I did: Straight until it
             starts to turn then hard, straight a bit until the
             road starts to bend then another right, then instead
             of going through the chicane nicely, I went hard-ish
             right then left. I’ve got the pictures to prove it if

              forward then take the mid left without any brakes.
              The first part of the S bend you won’t have to
              brake for but it’s the second part that determines
              whether you’ll do well. You have to time your
              braking and accelerating perfectly so you don’t
              lose any speed. Then it’s right chicane and a hard
              left to the finish. You shouldn’t have to brake
              for the left, and you can cut the corner by a very
              small distance without failing.

              mid rights. Then there’s an S bend (rl), and a mid
              left, followed by an easy left. To mid lefts lead
              up into a tight right hairpin. Braking is essential.
              Then it’s two mid lefts and a right chicane followed
              by another right HP, though it’s not as tight. A
              right chicane splits the next straight, terminating
              in a mid right followed closely by an S bend (rl).
              Next it’s a straight, easy right, another straight,
              and a left chicane. A mid right leads into the

Unlocks     : Mitsubishi GTO Z16A
Record      : 5’00”20
Description : This is a very SLOW track. Lots of hairpins and

              The track starts off with a straight, the only
              straight on the course. Then there’s a right HP,
              followed by a short straight, a left HP then
              another right HP. After two mid lefts there’s
              a right HP. An easy right leads into a right HP
              followed by a mid left then a left HP. Straight
              after this there’s an S bend (lr) then an easy
              left. After this there’s a right HP followed by
              an easy right. You have to turn a bit harder for
              this corner. After an easy right and a mid left
              there’s an easy left leading into a right HP.
              There’s then an easy right followed by a left HP.
              After an easy right there’s a tricky right HP.
              You’ll have to brake hard for this, turning as
              you go. Then it’s just a straight into the
              finish.
              1st lap: 6th

              two hard rights. Now there’s two slow mid lefts
              followed by a straight, then a left HP. Now
              there’s a hard right followed by two easy rights
              and a hard right to the end.
              1st lap: 5th
              2nd lap: 3rd
              Finish : An easy win!

Terrible Mountain

Unlocks     : Toyota ALTEZZA SXE10
Record      : 5’12”55
Description : There’s no mountain, but it’s definitely terrible.
              This is just like Assault: A SLOW track. Maybe even
              slower.
              For this track I’m not going to do the usual
              commentary/description thing. Just a list of
              corners, with comments where necessary.
              Easy left, unmentioned easy right. Mid left,
              mid left, mid right, right HP, left HP: heavy
              braking. Easy left, easy left, easy right, left HP.
              mid right, easy left, left HP. Mid right, easy
              left, right HP. Mid right, easy left, easy right,
              left HP. Easy right, easy left, right HP (big
              slide). Mid right, easy right, left HP. Straight!
              S bend (lr), left HP, easy right, Finish!
              1st lap: 5th
              2nd lap: 4th
              Finish : 1st, not too bad.

=================================================================

Skyscraper

Unlocks     : Toyota CHASER Tourer V JZX100
Record      : 2’26”32
Description : This is a very odd track, because it’s a highway
              with easies and mid’s and curved hairpins. It’s all
              about taking corners at very high speeds.
              The course starts off with a straight followed by
              a series of easies: right, right, left then a right
              HP. Then there’s a left HP followed by two mid
              rights. If you are good, you’ll be able to slide
              nicely around the next hard right. It takes a bit
              of practice but isn’t to hard. Then there’s a
              tight left HP, a right HP, then a short sprint to
              the finish.
              1st lap: 6th, almost 5th
              2nd lap: 3rd
              Finish : 1st. Try not to hit the sides too much.

=================================================================

Slippery

Unlocks     : Mazda RX-7 FD3S (Tuned)
Record      : 3’43”20
Description : A very complex track with quite a few tricky
              corners.
              After the short straight there’s a hard right then
              an easy left. After two mid lefts there’s a straight
              followed by an easy left then an S bend (lr). You’ll
              probably have to start braking once you get to the
              easy left then drift around. Once out there’s a left
              HP which needs a lot of brakes then a right HP, which
              is even harder. Following that there’s a hard right
              then an easy right then a long straight which ends in
              a (caution) easy left followed by a hairpin. You have
              to be very careful on this corner and brake very hard.
              Try to drift around the whole thing on brakes. It’s
              then just a straight to the finish.
              1st lap: 6th
              2nd lap: 4th maybe 3rd
              Finish : Not as easy as last time: you have to keep
                       CONTROL of your car.

Flash Speed

Unlocks      : Extra - Radio Con, Extra - WIRE FRAME, Nissan
               SKYLINE GT-R BNR34 (Tuned)
Record       : 5’28”55
Description  : This is another course with lots of corners. The
               average speed is about 80mph so it doesn’t really
               matter what car you choose, as long as its
               acceleration isn’t bad. Once again, I will be just
               listing the corners with a couple of notes.
               Mid left, right HP, left HP, right HP: Don’t
               oversteer. Left HP, right HP, easy left, hard
               left, hard left. Easy right, right HP, mid left,
               S bend (rl). Mid left, right HP, left HP, right
               HP. Easy right (un mentioned), left HP, easy left,
               right HP. Easy right, left HP, S bend (lr). Right
               HP, mid left, hard left, Finish!
               1st lap: 5th
               2nd lap: 3rd
               Finish : 1st! DONE! FINISHED!
