INTRODUCTION
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Hello, and welcome to my fourth FAQ, the F-Zero GX True Vehicle Guide.
I just had to find something to contribute to one of my all time favorite
games, so here is a detailed and useful FAQ for giving you better insight
on each vehicle's abilities.  I enjoyed writing it, so it was worthwhile.
The purpose of this FAQ is to really analyze and scruitinize the TRUE
abilities & stats of each vehicle, and prove the given stats wrong or right.
This FAQ will show the TRUE potential of each machine, and help you know
how the machines work and handle.  And note, this is NOT a guide to help
people who can't unlock vehicles.  YES, F-Zero GX is a difficult game, but
look elsewhere for guides on unlocking the more difficult vehicles.  

Enjoy F-Zero Fans!

THE TESTS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
In this section, I will describe the tests I used to find out just exactly
how good each F-Zero machine was under certain categories.  You can test
these yourself, and verify them if you don't believe the results.
Each vehicle has the potential to earn up to 6 points in each category:
top speed, acceleration, body strength, boost speed, boost length, grip,
and handling.  After each point total for each vehicle is found, I will
rank them.  The scoring and tests for each category are listed below.

|To test top speed, I first put the settings on top speed.  I picked the   |
| track Trident to test the vehicles on because it has long straightaways  |
| that make the testing easy.  To test top speed, I raced each car down    |
| the straightaway, until they reached a constant speed-top speed.        |
|                                                                          |

|To test body strength, I took every vehicle to Mute City Serial Gaps.     |
|There were some exceptions who went to Aeropolis Multiplex because that   |
|track has more bombs to hit.  I put the settings on top speed again, but  |
|the settings DO NOT affect body strength in any way.  Anyways, I took each|
|vehicle, and rammed them into bombs, noting how many bombs it took for    |
|them to blow up and finally die.                                          |

|To test acceleration, I took every vehicle to Trident once again,         |
|because of its wonderful straightaways.  I timed each vehicle with a      |
|stopwatch, and timed how long it took for them to get up to 1000KMPH.     |
|For the settings I used max acceleration of course.                       |

|intensity of the boost, or in otherwords, how fast it speeds them up.     |
|The length, and intensity scores were averaged together, and then ranked  |

|To test handling, I factored in things like cornering, stability, and     |
|handling. Easy cornering = better handling.  Stability when driving       |
|straight = better handling.  Good ice handling = better handling.         |
|Once tested, I took the average of all three handling attributes and      |
|rated them on my six point scale.                                         |

Dark Schnieder is a mixed bag. According to his listed stats, and because
you unlock him you'd think he'd be great. After testing him though, he turns
out to be quite average. His body is nothing compared to what's listed, and
he can't take nearly as much punishment as you'd think; he died from six
bombs in my test. Schnieder's acceleration is terrible, but makes up for that
with a pretty high top speed. Schnieder also handles better than expected.
He just has somewhat stiff turning, but is very stable otherwise.

Red Gazelle turns out to be much like it's listed. RG has one of the best
boosts in the game, and retains his A in boost. His body is terrible as
already listed, and he turns out to have quite poor acceleration. RG has
decent handling, but somewhat stiff cornering and may slide because of being
lightweight.

White Cat is not one of my favorites. She has a body that is much worse
than originally listed, and average accleration. She handles like a puck
on ice, and slides everywhere when going at high speeds. This makes for
great turning and cornering, but you can hardly drive in a straight line. 
Her fairly good boost and high speed are not enough to be saving graces
either.

The creators of F-Zero thought they were cool giving Golden Fox the stats
that spell out DAD. In fact, his stats turn out to be worse than DAD. His
body is terrible, as well as his top speed and acceleration. He boosts and
handles decent, but it means nothing with no accleration or good top speed.
This character is obsolete from the beginning.

As with most vehicles in F-Zero, Iron Tiger's body is quite a bit worse than
listed. He's got a bit of a better booster though, and his solid handling
and fairly high top speed make Iron Tiger a solid race choice.

Fire Stingray is one of my favorites. He has an acceptable body rating to
get you through most races alive, and handles really well in every aspect.
He has one of the worst accelerations in the game though which is thankfully
counteracted by a good top speed. His boost actually matches what's listed.

Pico is one of the worst racers. Ironically, he beats everyone for game
listed stats though. His body is an A, and he has the second strongest body
in the game. Top speed is good as well, but it all ends there. Terrible
acceleration, one of the worst boosters, and way too touchy handling that
has you oversteering constantly and impossible to drive in a straight line
make Pico one of the worst choices to race with in the game.

Captain Falcon is the game's mascot for a reason.  His machine rocks! Once
you get skilled enough, his weak body won't bring down the rest of his good
stats. He's got decent accel and top speed with great handling in all areas,
and a good booster, better than listed. If he had a higher top speed he
could've been the best racer in the game.

The worst character statwise listed in the game. EAD because the creators

actually quite accurate. He's quick to accel, and has good boost, but ends
up being one of the worst racers in every other category.

Wolf isn't terrible statwise, but has incredibly terrible handling with his
saucer shaped ship much like Pico. You'll have a hard time on the easiest
tracks handling him, which destroys his otherwise decent stats.

Having one of the highest top speeds and best boosters in the game, Death
Anchor can be a force to be reckoned with. His low acceleration, body, and
tough handling make him reserved only for experienced racers, but if you can
master Death Anchor, he's one of the best around.

Other than having a really high top speed, Big Fang is really shoddy. His

I love Sonic Phantom! Great handling, boost, and top speed all in one!
If you can get past the really weak body, this is definitely one of the 
best machines around. Being able to drive 1100 KMPH normally, and with a
great booster this is one machine hard to catch up to once you get going.

One of the few racers with stats that match the listed ones. Green Panther
is one of the best overall statwise, but I still don't care for this guy.
Sloppy slidy handling and too low of a top speed for me. Still, he's really
strong, fast to start, and sloppy handling means good drifting for corners.

My favorite racer! Definitely the coolest racer IMO, and proficient in all
my favorite stat categories. One of the fastest top speeds, great handling,
(albeit somewhat rough turning) and one of the better boosters to top it
all off. He has a weaker body, but if you're experienced enough this won't
bring him down. If his acceleration wasn't so terrible, there would just be
no contest for Hyper Speeder.

accleration aren't enough to justify such otherwise terrible stats.

Wild Boar is an all around average vehicle that trades poor acceleration for
great top speed. The handling may take a bit getting used to, but his heavy
weightedness helps counterbalance somewhat slidy handling. Maybe not the
best vehicle, but definitely one of the better looking.

So much for being a clone of Captain Falcon, this car sucks! Blood Falcon
combines terrible top speed, handling, and body, and combines it with a
package of decent accleration and boost which is just not enough to make
this car worth using. Ever. Lol.

Wow, the designers think they are clever again with those "DAD" stats. Wasp
is a pretty well balanced vehicle that is pretty easy to handle, and has
great turning and drifting abilities. Wasp isn't great in any area, but 
being so well balanced makes him a good choice for beginning players.

The game makes Draq seem overrated. His body is not that strong, nor his
boost that powerful. Draq isn't great statwise, but he has one of my 
favorite handling styles in the game, and rides real smooth.

Mighty Hurricane is slightly better than his counterpart statwise. He's got
better top speed and acceleration, but for some reason I still would choose
Typhoon over Hurricane just for his handling style. Still a good choice.

Pretty accurate listed stats; Crazy Bear is a monster. He's got terrible
top speed, and really slidy handling, but impressive accleration and a great
booster make him a top contender in F-Zero. His slidy handling brings him
down at high speeds, but allows him to drift easily around tight turns. 
Plus this guy's made out of steel.

Black Bull's body isn't as good as I would have expected, but Black Bull
is still one of the most formidable racers. He has the highest top speed in
the game, and the best snaking ability out there. If it wasn't for Bull's
outrageous speed and snaking abilities, he would be just another average
racer.

By far the best racer! Just look at that point total! Fat shark only lacks
just a bit in handling, but if you can master that you've got the best
money can buy here. Fat Shark is the strongest vehicle, has great top
speed, and only loses to Black Bull there. Acceleration is phenomenal for
such a large and heavy car, and Fat shark has the strongest booster in the
game! No contest, Fat Shark is the best F-Zero racer!

Best handling in the game! Pink Spider's two protruding blades make it
stable in almost every condition at all speeds. Its got a decent top speed,
but nothing else is standout on this car other than the handling.

If only Seagull was as good as it looks. Seagull's wings stick out fairly
akwardly, and tend to scrape into walls, and decimate Seagull's body. A
good booster unfortunately can't make Seagull recover from such low top
speed.

Bunny Flash has great handling, and under no circumstances ever seems to be

top speed she'd be one of the best racers, but unfortunately she does not.

I guess looks will have to make up for Groovy Taxi's low performance. 
Groovy is slow in all areas, and an average boost and good handling just
don't do enough to make PJ a standout racer.

Rainbow Phoenix doesn't have any really particular strong points, but
being good in every category we have another Deep Claw type racer,
but I prefer Phoenix. His car looks sick, and can rival that of Captain
Falcon's. Phoenix let me down jut a little bit statwise, but he's always
a solid race choice.

Well there you have it, folks. Finally a true vehicle guide that outlines
the stats of each F-Zero machine accurately. Why the creators of the game
gave vehicles bogus stats is beyond me, but I still enjoyed taking each
car through each test to find out who was the overall best machine.
I hope you enjoyed reading this FAQ as much as I did creating it.
Thanks F-Zero fans!
