    "Hi there!  Remember me?  I'm Rocket Racer...  You beat me in Lego 
    Racers.  I thought I was the best!  After that, I couldn't face racing 
    again.  But then, I heard about a planet called Xalax.  It's full of 
    aliens called Ramas who love to race.  My kind of guys!  I found the 
    portal to Xalax...which was quite a ride!  I arrived on the planet, and 
    the Ramas couldn't wait to race me!  So I took up the challenge...and 
    after a while, I was back to my old self...and driving better than ever!  
    I became the Galactic Racing Champion.  I built a new car too!  Think 
    you can beat me now?"
    
    Welcome to the world of Lego Racing!  In this FAQ, I will tell you how 
    to win races and beat the Galactic Racing Champion, Rocket Racer.  So 
    put you gear on and enter the exciting world of Lego Racing!

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Story Game
    
    The Story Game mode is where all the real action of Lego Racers 2 takes 
    place.  In this mode, you become a new racer, determined to become 
    Galactic Racing Champion.  Along the way, other racers challenge you as 
    your quest to become number 1 continues.  The more races you win, the 
    more Golden Blocks you receive and also the more parts for your car you 
    win.  Golden Blocks help you move throughout the different levels of 
    the game.  You start out with zero Golden Blocks and move up as you win 
    more races.  This is where your quest takes place, and begins.
    
    Single Player
    
    The Single Player mode is where you race by yourself against a number 
    of other characters.  This is a good place to get familiar with the 
    first couple of tracks in the game.
    
    Multi Player
    
    The Multi Player mode is where you do battle against your friends via 
    the Game Link.  A good place to go after you beat the game.
    
    Options
    
    The Options mode is where you set different options that affect the 
    game, like music and sound effects.  It is also where you can erase 
    your saved games in Story Game mode and erase the high scores for 
    tracks.

    + 7. Characters                 +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    You
    
    You are the star of the game.  You are the one who defeated Rocket 
    Racer and now, you want to become Galactic Racing Champion.  You are 
    the character the Lego Racing world revolves around.
    
    Rocket Racer
    
    Your biggest opposition.  You defeated him in the last Lego Racers 
    game.  Clearly out to embarrass you, he is the current Galactic Racing 
    Champion.
    
    Sparky
    
    Sparky is the owner of the go-kart track and your supporter throughout 
    the game.  He knows all there is about racing.
    
    More characters to come!
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 8. Weapons                    +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Here it is.  This is the weapons section of the FAQ.  Now please 
    notice.  These are not the official names.  These are the names I have 
    decided to give the weapons.  If anyone actually knows the names of the 
    weapons, please e-mail me.
    
    Disc
    
    The disc is an object that makes the tires of a car blow and spins the 
    car out.  In order to connect, the disc must be aligned just right.
    
    Rocket
    
    The best weapon in the game, there are two rockets.  A straight rocket 
    that fires straight ahead and a homing rocket that closes in on the 
    closest person.  Rockets cause people to spin out in races.
    
    Invisibility
    
    Not really a weapon, but an "aid" for racing.  Renders a racer 
    invisible for a set period of time.
    
    Blue Spring
    
    This is one of the worst weapons in the game.  It pops a racer into the 
    air.
    
    Spiked Ball
    
    The spiked ball is a good weapon.  When enabled, if a racer runs into 
    you, they will get hurt and if a weapon fires at you (disc or rocket), 
    you will not get hurt.

    + 9. Walkthrough                 +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Brickton
    
    Your quest to become number 1 starts here!  Upon entering the Story 
    Game mode, listen to the good advice Sparky gives and build a 
    character.  Once you build a character, give your character a good name 
    that will appear on your very own Lego Racer License!  Then, once your 
    character is fully complete, take a crack at Sparky's race course.
    
    Brickton - Track 1
    
    This is Sparky's race course.  It is the shape of an oval, so it's not 
    all that hard.  Get in first place as soon as you can and you should be 
    able to hold on to it for the remainder of the race.
    
    Strategy for Brickton - Track 1
    
    Just stay the middle.  When you are about to turn, take the outside and 
    go in during the turn.  Then, come out of the turn going back to the 
    outside.  You should be able to win with no difficulty at all.
    
    Sparky will then congratulate you and tell you that you should head 
    over to the Town Hall.  Go to Town Hall (the brown building by the 
    statue in the middle of town) and watch the short cinema.  You will 
    engage in conversation with some of the town's best racers.  The 
    construction worker will then challenge you.  And he'll even give you a 
    Golden Brick if you beat him.  So head for the construction zone (the 
    area with all of the brown dirt).
    
    Brickton - Track 2
    
    Sparky will then appear and tell you to watch out for specific objects.  
    One object, called a Vortex (it's purple), allows you to play a mini 
    game so that you can win parts for your car.  Drive into the Vortex and 
    after the race, you will play a mini game.  He'll tell you to collect 
    pick-ups (the swirly objects that are red).  Activate these with the L 
    Button.  They are your weapons and can help determine the outcome of 
    various races.  And finally, he'll tell you about green bricks (they're 
    green).  If you get damaged in a race, the green bricks will give you 
    back your health.  The track is not all that difficult, just a few hard 
    turns.  But nothing you can't handle though.
    
    Strategy for Brickton - Track 2
    
    Just us the out-in-out maneuver for the entire race.  You might want to 
    ease off the gas on some of the turns, but nothing major.  The 
    construction worker is in a digger truck, so you should be able to lap 
    him.  No big competition here.
    
    You'll then win a Golden Brick and Sparky will tell you about the 
    Vortex (if you collected it).  You might also want to go to the mini-
    game to get an upgrade.  The postman will then challenge you.  So you 
    have two choices: get an upgrade, or go to another race.  Your best bet 
    would be to get the upgrade first.
    
    Brickton Mini Game - The Money Bag Mini-Game
    
    This is the very first mini game.  An armored truck's back door broke 
    and all the money bags fell out.  A robber has been following the truck 
    trying to get the money bags.  Your job will be to stop the robber from 
    getting all of them money bags.  If you are successful, you will 
    receive a part for your car.
    
    Strategy for Brickton Mini Game
    
    Just run into the robber's car.  The robber will try to give you the 
    slip, but nothing all too difficult.
    
    Sparky will show up and tell you that you can upgrade your wheels, 
    engine, or car strength.  Make your decision by moving the Control Pad 
    up or down to choose the part, right to upgrade, and a to confirm your 
    choice.
    
    Special Note - You can go to the same Mini Game 3 times to get upgrades 
    for your car.  Afterwards, you will not be able to play the same Mini-
    Game again.
    
    Now that you have upgraded your car, it is time for you to race against 
    the postman.  Go to the post office (the building to the left of the 
    Town Hall)
    
    Brickton - Track 3
    
    This track is a little more intense than the last one.  More hard turns 
    and fewer straightaways.  The postman is faster than the construction 
    worker was.
    
    Strategy for Brickton - Track 3
    
    More out-in-out maneuvers.  Stick with this the whole race.  You may 
    have to brake on the last 2 or 3 turns, but that won't hurt you all too 
    much.  Again, no big competition.
    
    You will no receive Golden Brick #2!  After a few moments of whining, 
    you will then be challenged by the fire fighter.  Head for the 
    firehouse (the building to the right of the statue).
    
    Brickton - Track 4
    
    Track 4 is quite tough because there is a U-turn in the first turn 
    after the starting line.  But it's nothing you can handle...
    
    Strategy for Brickton - Track 4
    
    Should I even say it?  Yes, for those who haven't quite caught on yet.  
    Just continue to use the out-in-out maneuver.  This, with a little 
    braking, will help you master this course, and win a Golden Brick.
    
    You just received Golden Brick #3.  The fire fighter will then get 
    angry and tell you that he wanted to enter the Galactic Racing 
    Championship, but that it will come down to you and the policeman.  
    After some trash talk by the policeman, head for the police station 
    (right by the Mini Game Spot).
    
    Brickton - Track 5
    
    The toughest track in Brickton, there are many things to watch out for.  
    The first biggest thing is to watch out for the tight turns.  They show 
    up right after each other.  Trees and stuff will also be an obstacle.
    
    Strategy for Brickton - Track 5
    
    Watch your speed.  Going to fast will cause you to slam into a tree or 
    barrier.  And use out-in-out also.
    
    After placing first, you will be congratulated and win another Golden 
    Brick.  You will be the representative for Sandy Bay at the Galactic 
    Racing Championship.
    
    Sparky will then show up and tell you that you will need to race 
    against other people in other areas to be as good as Rocket Racer.  
    He'll tell you that winning numerous races will cause you to be 
    recognized by Rocket Racer, and that you can improve your car along the 
    way to the Galactic Racing Championship.  Sparky then tells you that 
    the Golden Bricks allow you to go to other places to race.  He'll tell 
    you about some of the jump points around Sandy Bay and that one area, 
    called Dino Island is a cheap place to go for some races.
    
    Now with 4 Golden Bricks in your possession, head for the green jump 
    point (at the bottom of Brickton).
    
    To get to Dino Island, go left, up, and up to get to the blimp.  Sparky 
    will tell you that you have enough Golden Bricks to go to Dino Island.  
    Tell him you want to leave for Dino Island wand watch the cinema.
    
    Dino Island
    
    Welcome to Dino Island!  Your first order of business is to win a 
    Golden Brick.  Head for the very first dot you see by pressing up, then 
    left, and press A.  You will then talk to a tribesman who says that a 
    race is about to begin.  Say yes, you would like to enter, and prepare 
    to race on Dino Island Track 1.
    
    Dino Island - Track 1
    
    This track has rain and rocks so you better be careful.  Also, there is 
    a Vortex here on the far outside of a straightaway.  The track has a 
    lot of turns, but you can manage.
    
    Strategy for Dino Island - Track 1
    
    Watch your speed.  Out-in-out works best with the brake here, since you 
    can get a little carried away on the straightaway with the excessive 
    speed.
    
    Upon completion of the track, you will win another Golden Brick.  Also, 
    you can go back to this same course, but the layout of the track will 
    be different.
    
    To get to the next race, go left, up, then left again and press A.  You 
    will talk to a man who asks you if you want to enter the next race.  
    Accept his offer and prepare for the next track.
    
    Dino Island - Track 2
    
    It's raining here too!  Tight turns all over the place as well.
    
    Strategy for Dino Island - Track 2
    
    A lot more braking.  And the usual out-in-out maneuver.
    
    New Golden Brick anyone?  Time for race 3!  Go back to where the first 
    race was and cross the bridge.  Enter the "temple" and accept the 
    invitation to race.  Get ready for race 3!
    
    Dino Island - Track 3
    
    More tight turns and forks in the road!  There's a nice twist for the 
    second level of the game...  But nothing really major.
    
    Strategy for Dino Island - Track 3
    
    The usual.  Out-in-out, braking, and watching your speed.  There are 
    more obstacles here, so be careful.  Most times, there is a green brick 
    waiting for you after a fork in the road.  Those bricks are usually on 
    the right hand side of the fork.  Pick-ups are usually on the left hand 
    side of the fork, so choose your path wisely.
    
    Another Golden Brick and another chance to upgrade your car.  Sam 
    Sanister will also challenge you.  But first, go to the blue dot for 
    the Dino Island Mini Game.
    
    Dino Island Mini Game - Egg Hunting
    
    A man will tell you that he was collecting dinosaur eggs when he ran 
    out of gas.  If you get the 10 eggs he lost in 4 minutes, he will give 
    you an upgrade for your car.
    
    Strategy for Dino Island Mini Game
    
    Just look for the eggs.  The hard part is finding the finish line.  
    Just look for the marks on the ground that look like stepping stones 
    and you should find your way back to the finish line.  You can only 
    collect 2 eggs at a time, so you must hurry if you are to get your 
    upgrade.
    
    Upon completion of the Mini Game, Sparky will remind you of what you 
    can get an upgrade for.  And don't forget, you can go to the same Mini 
    Game 3 times to get upgrades before you can't play that game anymore.
    
    Once you're finished with the Mini Game, head back to the place where 
    you first raced, no, there will be a yellow spot close by.  Head for 
    the spot and listen to Sam Sanister's trash talk.  Get ready for race 
    4.
    
    Dino Island - Sam Sanister Challenge
    
    This track is rather difficult.  There are many tight turns and a large 
    fork in the road.  But persevere, and you will win.
    
    Strategy for the Sam Sanister Challenge
    
    Same strategy as for one for all the others.  But watch your braking.  
    Sam Sanister is rather tough to beat.
    
    After beating Sam Sanister, not only do you receive a Golden Brick, but 
    you get his twin turbo engine for an upgrade!  Now that is sweet!
    
    Your are now finished the Dino Island level!  Whereto now?  Go to the 
    big map and head for the helicopter that is on the dock.  Sparky will 
    tell you that you have enough Golden Bricks to go to the Arctic level.  
    That helicopter will take you there, where even more racers await your 
    arrival.  Enjoy the cinema as you prepare to go to the Arctic.
    
    The Arctic
    
    Your first order of business?  Get in a race.  Head left, then head 
    down to the first red spot.  You will then learn about the Ice Monster 
    that, allegedly, keeps car parts in his cave.  Accept the invitation to 
    join the race as you prepare for the first race at the Arctic.
    
    Arctic - Track 1
    
    The first track is really difficult.  There are no barriers like there 
    were in the first 2 levels.  You can fall straight into the deep water 
    (you can tell deep water by the darker blue) and run into many 
    obstacles.  There are also jump pads and few straightaways.  So be 
    careful.  There is also a Vortex in this level.  Pick it up if you can.
    
    Strategy for Arctic - Track 1
    
    Just apply everything you know to your racing for this track.  And use 
    the brake!
    
    After crossing the finish line, you will receive a Golden Brick for 
    your troubles.
    
    Head up for your next invitation to a race.
    
    Arctic - Track 2
    
    Very tight turns and there are even fewer straightaways on this track.
    
    Strategy for Arctic - Track 2
    
    Use the brake.  If you can, on the U-turns, cut through some of the 
    obstacles.  Just be careful not to bump into them, as you may just fall 
    into the deep end of the water.
    
    You will be congratulated and presented with a Golden Brick.  Now, head 
    up to your next race.  You will then be invited to join, and get ready 
    for track 3!
    Arctic - Track 3
    
    This track consists of nothing but tight turns.  Turns appear suddenly 
    and U-turns are constant throughout the track.  There is also a large 
    fork in the road here.
    
    Strategy for Arctic - Track 3
    
    Watch your speed and use the brake.  The out-in-out maneuver does not 
    work here, so use the signs that are given to you at the top of the 
    screen.  Also, try to avoid the jump pads here.  If you go too fast, 
    you will fly right into the deep part of the water.  Just hold your 
    speed, use the brake, and watch the sudden turns, and you should do 
    fine.
    
    Congratulations on winning another Golden Brick!  Now, head right and 
    you will be invited to join another race.  Accept the invitation and 
    prepare for track 4.
    
    Arctic - Track 4
    
    More tight turns and U-turns galore.  But there are more straightaways 
    here so you can catch up burn the opposition with your speed.
    
    Strategy for Arctic - Track 4
    
    Try to take the lead early in the race.  Use the brake when you are 
    going into the turns where the signs are orange and ease off the gas on 
    some of the turns where the sign is yellow.  Use the brake entirely on 
    the U-turns and watch out for the only jump in the game.  If you go too 
    fast, you will fall into the deep part of the water.
    
    Congratulations on obtaining another Golden Brick.  But look out, the 
    ice monster of the Arctic has shown up, and he is waiting by the 
    mountains ready to challenge you to a race.  But first, it may be time 
    for you to upgrade your car.  Head for the blue spot (it's to the right 
    of the green spot).
    
    Arctic Mini Game - Meteor Hunting
    
    Someone lost all of the meteors when a polar bear attacked him.  It's 
    up to you to find the meteors within the time limit.  You'll get the 
    car part if you find the 10 meteors in 4 minutes.
    
    Strategy for the Arctic Mini Game
    
    It's just the same as the Dino Island Mini Game, but this time, you're 
    in snow and ice.  Plus, there is deep water all around, which can kill 
    valuable time if you fall in.  Just look for the eggs and remember 
    where the finish line is.  And remember, you can only collect 2 meteors 
    at a time.
    
    Upon completion of the Mini Game, Sparky will remind you of what you 
    can get an upgrade for.  And don't forget, you can go to the same Mini 
    Game 3 times to get upgrades before you can't play that game anymore.
    
    Once you complete the Mini Game, head on over to the mountain (the 
    yellow spot, right beside the blue spot) to face the Berg in a race.
    
    Arctic - Berg Challenge
    
    Berg is an iceberg that can race.  The track he races on is full of 
    tight turns and deep water is everywhere.  But if you endure to the 
    end, you will win the race.
    
    Strategy for the Berg Challenge
    
    Get a good lead early.  If you have upgraded your engine to at least 
    level three, you should be able to come out of the race on top.  Be 
    careful though, going to fast will cause you to fall in the deep part 
    of the water.  Also, watch out for the ice that sticks out in the 
    ground.  They make your car spin out and slide all over the course.
    
    You'll win a Golden Brick for beating Berg and also Berg gives you some 
    wheels for your car.  Yeah!  Now, back to the Sandy Bay area to see 
    where you can go next.  Head for the green spot.
    
    Now that you are back on the helicopter dock, go up, right, and right 
    again.  You will then be on the launch pad that will take you to Mars.  
    Sparky will tell you that you have enough Golden Bricks to head to 
    Mars.  Enjoy your cinema as you take off into Outer Space.
    
    Welcome to Mars!  You should start racing right away.  Go up and head 
    right to the very first red dot on the screen.  A Martian will tell you 
    about some of the other Martian racers and invite you to enter a race.  
    Accept the offer and prepare for Mars track 1!
    
    Mars - Track 1
    
    This is a difficult track due to the lava pits and also the jumps.  
    Tight turns are everywhere.  There is also a Vortex on this track.
    
    Strategy for Mars - Track 1
    
    Just slow down some more and use the brake.  These racers are on you 
    like white on rice, so one screw up, and you might as well restart the 
    race (I know I did ;P).
    
    Congratulations on completing your first race on Mars.  You will 
    receive a Golden Brick, bringing you ever closer to Xalax and Rocket 
    Racer.
    
    Now go right and get invited for a race, & prepare for race #2.
    
    Mars - Track 2
    
    This track is much easier than track 1.  There are more straightaways 
    and fewer jumps.
    
    Strategy for Mars - Track 2
    
    Take the lead early and apply the same strategy for track 1.
    
    Congratulations on completing track 2.  Receive your Golden Brick and 
    head for the Mini Game space that's right next to you.
    
    Mars Mini Game - The Tube
    
    This is another collection Mini Game.  However, you are in a tube and 
    you must pick up 25 gems before reaching the end to get the car 
    upgrades.  There are obstacles you must watch out for in the tube, so 
    brace yourself and prepare for the ride of your life!
    
    Strategy for the Mars Mini Game
    
    Just collect the gems by pressing right or left.  The tube is not all 
    that sensitive, so you may have to hold the right or left button to get 
    some of the gems.  But it shouldn't be a problem for you though.  And 
    watch out for the red obstacles that get in your way.  Get the 25 gems 
    to get the upgrade.
    
    Upon completion of the Mini Game, Sparky will remind you of what you 
    can get an upgrade for.  And don't forget, you can go to the same Mini 
    Game 3 times to get upgrades before you can't play that game anymore.
    
    By now, your car should be completely upgraded, with everything to the 
    max (which is gray).  If not, go back and make sure that you have 
    beaten the Mini Games 3 times for the Brickton level, Dino Island 
    level, Arctic level, and the Mars level.
    
    Now, head to the next red spot (which is right above you).  You will 
    learn about the meteor storm that hasn't ended for days and be invited 
    to join a race.  Accept the invitation and prepare for race #3.
    
    Mars - Track 3
    
    This track is really hard.  Jumps are shorter than usual, so if you 
    miss, in the lava pool you go.  Hard turns are definitely present on 
    this track.  Be especially careful of the U-turns.
    
    Strategy for Mars - Track 3
    
    Get an early lead, since your car is fully upgraded (it should be), you 
    should have no problem blowing the competition out of thew water.  Just 
    watch out for the jumps and lava, or else, you will have to start over.  
    Hard braking is a must on this track, and in certain situations, the 
    out-in-out maneuver will come in handy.
    
    All of your hard work will pay off once you get this Golden Brick.  
    Now, it's on to the next race.  Head up, then left to get invited to 
    this race and prepare for track 4.
    
    Mars - Track 4
    
    Filled with sudden turns and jumps, this is probably the hardest track 
    you will encounter on Mars.
    
    Strategy for Mars - Track 4
    
    Just follow the same strategy for all of the other tracks: hard 
    braking, easy speed, and occasionally, the out-in-out maneuver.
    
    You will win a Golden Brick and be challenged by Riegel.  Awaiting you 
    at the base, he is the last opponent left on Mars.  So held to the base 
    by going right, up, and left to face Reigel.
    
    Mars - Riegel Challenge
    
    This is by far your toughest opponent.  The track gets really crazy as 
    you may turn down the wrong path and lose your place in the race.  
    Watch out for the multiple jumps and also for the sudden sharp turns.
    
    Strategy for the Riegel Challenge
    
    The guy's in a UFO for crying out loud!  How are you suppose to beat a 
    UFO?  Simple.  Take an early lead, brake hard, and watch your speed.  
    But be careful though, Riegel has a weapon that will manipulate your 
    car.  If you are hit by something and your car goes in the opposite 
    direction, then you know his weapon caught you.  This then leads to you 
    falling into a lava pit before you can react.  Just maintain your 
    speed, watch the jumps, and brake hard to come out the victor of this 
    challenge.
    
    Congratulations on winning yet another Golden Brick.  And you will also 
    receive the Shield Generator that Riegel "supposedly" knocked off his 
    UFO.  Sparky will ask you if you want to take it.  You eventually say 
    yes, and Sparky confirms what it is.  It's a Shield Generator.  Sparky 
    then tells you that it will make your car stronger and that you should 
    come back to Sandy Bay.  So head for the green spot and return to Sandy 
    Bay.
    
    You'll then watch a cinema of a group of people at this "portal".  You 
    then learn that the Rocket Racer has come to Sandy Bay and has declared 
    you the representative for Sandy Bay at the Galactic Cup.
    
    After getting back to Sandy Bay, head left, up, then right to get to 
    the portal.  Rocket Racer will then talk about how he is inviting 
    racers to come to Xalax and race in the Galactic Cup.  He then talks 
    about how he's heard about your amazing skills and invites you, the 
    Lego Worlds champion to go to Xalax to go against the Ramas in some 
    qualifying races.  Afterwards, Rocket Racer declares that he will 
    challenge you in the dome in a one-on-one race to determine the Grand 
    Champion.  So go with him and witness the "best driving the galaxy has 
    to offer".  Sparky will then tell you to hurry up and follow Rocket 
    Racer through the portal to Xalax.  Enjoy your trip to Xalax!
    
    Welcome to Xalax.  Upon arriving at the Dome, a news broadcaster will 
    start the first race for you.
    
    Xalax Dome - Track 1
    
    This track is fast paced and rather easy.  There are three jumps that 
    you must clear or else you will fall into some ooze.  There are red 
    marks on the ground that can slow down your car and green marks on the 
    ground that can speed it up.  There are barriers all throughout the 
    level, so it's not like the Arctic and Mars levels (I know you're 
    happy).
    
    Strategy for Xalax Dome - Track 1
    
    Just apply everything that you have learned all throughout the game.  
    This track is like a mixture of all the other ones, so just remember 
    what you experienced and let loose.  Also, you may want to hit the 
    green marks that are on the ground too.
    
    The announcer will declare you the winner and start race 2.
    
    Xalax Dome - Track 2
    
    This track is even tougher than the last track.  There are even more U-
    turns here than you have encountered on any other track.  More ooze and 
    jumps too, along with those red and green marks on the ground.
    
    Strategy for Xalax Dome - Track 2
    
    Just get in first place and survive.
    
    The announcer will again declare you the winner and will start race 3.
    
    Xalax Dome - Track 3
    
    Same kind of track, but the space has gotten smaller.  You are on one 
    of the tightest tracks in the whole game.
    
    Strategy for Xalax Dome - Track 3
    
    Same as track 2.
    
    The announcer will again declare you the winner and start race 4.
    
    Xalax Dome - Track 4
    
    This track is more like a figure 8 track.  Go towards one end, circle a 
    certain area, cross the starting line, circle another area, and cross 
    the starting line again to begin a new lap.  Nothing all too difficult...
    
    Strategy for Xalax Dome - Track 4
    
    Just get in first and hold on to it.  What can I say?
    
    The announcer will once again declare you the winner and say you can 
    now challenge Rocket Racer for the Galactic Cup.
    
    Rocket Racer will then start talking smack and say you cannot beat him.  
    So prepare for the final race!
    
    Xalax Dome - Rocket Racer Challenge
    
    The track Rocket Racer faces you on is the toughest in the entire game.  
    There is nothing on this track but U-turns and straightaways.  There 
    are jumps too, so watch your speed.
    
    Strategy for the Rocket Racer Challenge
    
    Just get in front of him, use the out-in-out maneuver, use weapons, and 
    use the brake occasionally.  Hold on 'till the very end and you will 
    come out the victor.
    
    And that's it for the walkthrough of the Story Game Mode.

    + 10. Parts Information         +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Here is the information on the 3 parts in the game.
    
    Shield
    
    Provides protection against weapons.  This can be upgraded four times 
    and the Shield Generator is the best there is at protecting you from 
    other racer's weapons.
    
    Wheels
    
    What's needed to make contact with the ground so that you can move.  
    This can be upgraded four times and Berg's Wheels is the best there is 
    at getting good traction on the ground.
    
    Engine
    
    The powerhouse of your car.  With no engine, you can't start the car!  
    This can be upgraded four times and the Twin Engine is the best there 
    is at providing good speed and power for your car.

    + 11. Ending                    +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Congratulations!  You have defeated Rocket Racer (again) and have 
    become the new Galactic Racing Champion!  Rocket Racer will then 
    present you with the Galactic Racing Championship Trophy as the crowd 
    goes wild over you defeating Rocket Racer.  You'll tell Rocket Racer 
    that getting the trophy from him was a real honor and he answers by 
    saying he'll be back for the trophy some other time.  You then tell him 
    that you are looking forward to it, and that he should practice.  He 
    says that he will and that he always makes a comeback after a loss.  
    He'll then end the conversation by saying there are some people who 
    would like to meet the new Champion.  You'll then get more applause 
    from the crowd and talk with some of the challengers that you defeated 
    on the road to becoming number 1.  Sparky will then tell you that he 
    knew you would become Champion and tells you that you are the best 
    racer in the galaxy, but we already knew that right?  Then you'll hear 
    your character say that the trophy is yours and Sparky's.  The crowd 
    makes even more noise as your first 5 challengers from Brickton come to 
    talk to you.  Then, there is even more applause from the crowd as the 4 
    Mini Game leaders come up to talk to you.  After you talk with your 
    friends, the crowd goes crazy as you bring the trophy towards them.
    
    And that's the end of the game.
