    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.
