San Francisco RUSH Extreme Racing (N64) - Key FAQ
=================================================
This FAQ will detail where all the hidden keys are located and how to obtain
them.  Finding half of the keys on a certain track will enable the special
TAXI (Ooooh!).  Finding all of the keys on a certain track will enable the 
special HOT-ROD (Yeah!).


Track #1 - Golden Gate Bridge - 6 Keys
--------------------------------------
Key #1 - Directly behind you at the start of the race.  Turn around at the
         start and drive back to the dead end.
Key #2 - Suspended in air on your left before you reach the Golden Gate
         bridge.  Drive well past the key, turn around and accelerate to hit
         the bump on the right side of the road against the railing and 
         launch you into the air.
Key #3 - Suspended high in the air on your left just past the Golden Gate
         bridge.  Do not use the jump ramp next to the toll booths but rather 
         the grass hill behind it.  Accelerate to a high rate of speed as you
         near the end of the bridge. 
Key #4 - Just past the Presidio tunnel there is a break-away section in the
         fence to your left with a dirt path behind it.  Crash through the
         fence and proceed up the grass hill to your left.  The key is at the
         top of the hill.
Key #5 - Just past the finish line on the far left is a tunnel into the hill.
         Proceed through the tunnel and the key will be on your left just as
         you exit it.
Key #6 - Also just past the finish line on the left is a narrow embankment.
         Get on the grass and drive on the embankment alongside the wall 
         until you run into the key.

Track #2 - Embarcadero - 7 Keys
-------------------------------
Key #1 - Drive through the cones and proceed to the point where the overpass
         is broken.  Go slowly and fall off at an angle to the level below.
         Follow this all the way back until the dead-end where the key is
         located.
Key #2 - Drive through the cones and jump across to the other side of the
         broken overpass.  The overpass will take you to a huge half-pipe
         with loops at both ends.  At the top of the far loop a key is
         suspended in the air.
Key #3 - In the far side wall of the half-pipe directly between the two loops
         is a small room.  Drive up the side of the half-pipe and into the
         room where you will find the key.
Key #4 - Drive under the semi-trailer and jump on top of the roofs.  Proceed
         to the jump ramp and fall off the far left side at a very slow speed.
         The key is at the bottom in the alley.
Key #5 - Just past the semi-trailer turn there is a small underground entrance
         in the building on the left.  The key is at the bottom of the tunnel.
Key #6 - Just past the semi-trailer turn there is a fountain in the plaza in
         front of the building on the left.  Use the fountain as a jump ramp
         and jump into the center of the building.  There is a tunnel through
         the building hidden by the glass panels.  The tunnel is lined with
         "DANGER!" signs and the key sits in the middle of the tunnel.
Key #7 - Go to the second fountain on the opposite side of the building and
         drive into it.  There is a key at the bottom.

Track #3 - Market - 8 Keys
--------------------------
Key #1 - At the first left hand turn there is a staircase to your left.  Drive
         up the staircase to a small platform where the key is located.
Key #2 - There is a key suspended in air underneath one of the CHECKPOINT 
         signs.  Drive past the checkpoint and around the corner towards the
         Coit tower.  Turn around and proceed back up the sharp up-hill turn
         at a high rate of speed to jump into the key.
Key #3 - To the left of the Coit tower are small white buildings.  Drive 
         between the buildings and enter a dirt half-pipe.  The key is
         suspended in air on the right even with the first rock obstruction.
         Simply drive up the side of the half-pipe to reach it.
Key #4 - In the center of the huge tunnel before the long down-hill jump a key 
         is suspended in air.  Simply drive to the bottom of the hill, turn 
         around and drive at a high rate of speed to jump into it.
Key #5 - After passing through Chinatown proceed up the road through several
         up hill turns.  At the last right hand turn there is a gap in the
         wooden fence behind the building.  Go through the gap to find a
         tunnel entrance to a room that is entirely sky textured.  The key
         is in a corner of the room.
Key #6 - Drive through the cones at the Chinatown turn and up to the top of
         the hill.  Instead of jumping to the top of Lombard street slow down
         and turn right onto the side street at the last jump.  A key is on
         the next corner.
Key #7 - As you head downhill towards the starting straight-away there is a
         small platform on your left near the tunnel exit.  Simply drive close
         to the building and onto the platform to reach the key.
Key #8 - Just past the finish line is a trolley on your left.  The key is on
         the far side of the trolley.

Track #4 - Downtown - 8 Keys
----------------------------
Key #1 - Immediately to your left just past the start is a fenced in bus stop
         with a key in the middle.  Go past it and jump from the grass to land
         on the key.
Key #2 - Floating above the grassy hill on your left just past the plaza which
         contains a statue and a fountain.  Hit the sharply sloped side of the
         grassy hill to jump into the key.
Key #3 - There is an opening in the buildings to the right just before the
         first checkpoint.  Follow the road through the buildings and across
         the road to hit a grass ramp which will launch to up to one of three
         entrances into the side of the building.  The highest entrance will
         take you to a key directly in the middle of the building.
Key #4 - The 2nd highest entrance will take you on a connector through several
         buildings.  At the last building hit the brakes to land on the roof
         and back up to get the key.
Key #5 - There is a red parking garage on your left as you approach the drop
         off in the road.  Simply follow the ramp slowly into the garage where
         a key is waiting.
Key #6 - Just past the waterfall on your right are two jump ramps into the 
         side of a building.  Jump the ramp on the far right and aim your car
         towards the right.  You should fly straight towards a key on the 
         right side of the next jump ramp.
Key #7 - Drive past the grass jump ramp you used to obtain Keys #3 & #4.  Turn
         left and there will be a small alley in between 2 buildings on your
         right.  The key is at the end of the alley.
Key #8 - Just before the two roads re-join at the start/finish line there is
         another alley between 2 buildings on the left path.  The key is at
         the end of the alley.

Track #5 - The Heights - 8 Keys
-------------------------------
Key #1 - Turn right at the marina and drive past all the buildings and down
         onto the beach.  Turn around and proceed to hit the ramp to launch
         your car on top of the first building and hit the brakes.  Now jump
         to the nieghboring building that extends all the way out into the
         ocean.  There is a key at the far end of the building.
Key #2 - Follow the same procedure as Key #1 but try to double-jump onto
         the first building and then onto the third.  Drive across the 
         connector to the fourth building where a key is on the roof.
Key #3 - In the wall across from the marina there is a small gap directly in
         the middle of the long stretch of arrow signs.  Drive through it at
         high speed to hit the jump ramp in the next row of houses, then
         double-jump off the roof you land on to launch you at a key on the
         roof of the building next to the row of trees.
Key #4 - Instead of jumping off the ramp used for Key #3 turn left just past
         it and turn right at the next corner.  There is a small gap between
         the corner building and it's neighbor that contains a key.
Key #5 - At the fork in the track hit the small dirt ramp on the left side
         of the road to launch you over the short building.  There is a key
         floating directly above it.
Key #6 - Turn into the small platform at the "smiley Shell" gas station on 
         the corner.  There is a key in the back corner.
Key #7 - Drive up the entrance to the building which doubles as a jump ramp.
         It is located on the right side of the road on the last up-hill
         stretch of the track.  Jump through the building and land on a small
         landing ramp.  Instead of proceeding to the spike filled pit, turn
         around and proceed back.  There is a key at the dead-end.
Key #8 - There is a small parking area in between buildings on the right side
         of the final down hill stretch of track.  Simply drive through the
         wall into the parking garage where the key is sitting.

Track #6 - Sunset - 8 Keys
--------------------------
Key #1 - In the retaining wall to your left just past the first checkpoint is
         a fenced off hole.  Drive through the fence to a small room which
         contains a key.
Key #2 - After making the hairpin turn at the end of the water go past the
         bridge and drive on the grass alongside the water.  The key is 
         sitting next to a tree.
Key #3 - Floating above a small island in the ocean a short distance away
         from the shore.  Jump from the road to fly and land on the key.
Key #4 - Drive on the shoreline behind the buildings near the islands.  There
         is a small recess in the back of the first building that hides a key.
Key #5 - At the back corner of the parking lot on your left just before
         checkpoint #4 a key sits around the corner of the building.
Key #6 - Drive off the main road to the right just before checkpoint #4.
         Follow alongside the short wall until it ends and proceed down
         towards the water.  There is a tunnel in the side of the hill that
         leads to a cave which contains a loop with a key floating in the
         middle of it along with several jumping platforms.
Key #7 - The cave has a suspended ceiling.  Drive up one of the side walls at
         a high rate of speed going away from the entrance to get on top of
         the suspended ceiling.  Climb the short wall to the middle where you
         will find another key.
Key #8 - Just past checkpoint #4 is a columned building.  Drive into the 
         building to get the key.

Track #7 - The ROCK - 8 Keys
----------------------------
Key #1 - Just before the suspended circular ramp turn right onto the grass
         and head towards the water directly between the support towers.
         There is a ledge with a key on it on the steep drop down into the
         water.
Key #2 - Just past checkpoint #2 is a tunnel into the hill on your left.
         Enter and proceed until the tunnel turns to the left.  At the apex
         of this turn is a key.
Key #3 - Instead of jumping into the penitentiary proceed up the hill onto
         the concrete to the left besides the tower.  Drive slowly into the
         middle of the wall behind the tower and you can pass right through it
         onto a balcony with a key.
Key #4 - Jump on top of the penitentiary and proceed back towards the water
         tower.  Fall off to the left into a courtyard.  The key is in the
         corner closest to the building.  Simply drive through the wall next
         to it to get back on the track.
Key #5 - Instead of jumping into the middle of the penitentiary, drive around
         it to the left and make your way to the water tower.  At the far
         corner of the nearest building another key sits in the grass.
Key #6 - After passing through the tunnel exiting the penitentiary keep going
         until you reach a sandy area on your right.  Turn onto it and make
         a right turn and proceed back alongside the water.  There is a key
         a short distance away.
Key #7 - Keep driving along the water from where you found key #4 and you will
         soon find another key.
Key #8 - Keep driving along the water from where you found key #5 and you will
         soon find another key.  This one is on the outside of the tunnel.
