-----+++++==========+++++----------+++++==========+++++-----

Hiya, and welcome to the world of NFSU 2. There are many new 
features, some exclusive to the DS version, so lets get 
started! Oh, and to find a section, hold Control (Ctrl) or 
Command (Apple) and press F. Type in the three letters to the
Right of the section you wish to find (for example, type in
RTS for Race Types)

-----+++++==========+++++----------+++++==========+++++-----
RACE TYPES		 [RTS]
-----+++++==========+++++----------+++++==========+++++-----

--------------------
Circuit

This is just your normal street race. Be first across the 
line on that last lap to win. 
--------------------
Drag

Flat out speed in a straight line. Shift at the right point
(when the top part of the left bar is green) and youll be 
shakin in no time!
--------------------
Own The Zone

Dont screw up (like me)! You have got to get the fastest time
in most of the zones to win! To check that you do own a 
zone, look at the map. If that section is green, its yours!
But it wont be if somebody else gets a better time than you.
--------------------
Lap Knockout

There is no last place. Cause if you are coming last, and 
the rest cross the line, you are history. And DONT think this
only matters on the last lap, cause it matters on EVERY lap. 
--------------------
Time Trial

No opponents. No traffic (unless you choose to have traffic).
The only rival that means something to you is that irritating
ticking tocking spinning contraption of klap-trap we call
time. Beat the clock to win the race!
--------------------
Free Run

Ahh, nothins much better than a Sunday Drive (unless its 
Saturday). Just sit (or stand) back and relax (or concentrate
So hard your face goes red) so you can drive peacefully (or
recklessly).
