    About Game:
       This is one of the best Mario game for Nintendo 64.
    Its isn't like the others but it's still great. As you
    can see this is a racing game. Once I first heard about
    the game I thought it was just another racing game like
    the regular ones, but I was completly wrong! This game
    is not like any other racing games you've play, it's
    completely diffrerent. Why? Because now instead of
    picking a car you get to pick a chracter. Another
    reason this game is different from the others is the
    items. That's right there is items in the game. You
    can use the items to help you win a race. Its isn't
    cheating and it's fun.
    
    
    About the Aurthor
       After playing this game for weeks and finnally
    beating it, I decided to write a full FAQ for it. In
    this FAQ I'll tell you almost everything you need to
    know about the game to beat it. I will have all course
    and strategy to beat them, even maps that I made for
    them! Enjoy the FAQ and hope it helps.

                              Characters
    
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
       There are 8 different kinds of characters in the
    game. Each one is split in to three different kinds
    of groups. Each group has it's own specialty. Try
    picking different characters everytime to see which
    ones your best with.
    
                          Lightweights
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    
    Peach
    One of the best characeters to use. She can go
    really fast and can make great sharp turn. The only
    down side is that not very good at slowing down.
    
    
    Toad
    Toad is just a normal charactyers like the others.
    His speed is average and his ability to turn in great!
    
    
    Yoshi
    Yoshi is a little of every characters. His speed is
    average and his turning is okay.
    
    
                           Middleweights
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    
    Mario
    He maybe a hero a hero on his other adeventure but
    can he be a hero on this one? Mario speed is fast
    and his turning is pretty good. Mario is a great
    choice for those beginners.
    
    
    Luigi
    Ah, the brother of Mario. Even though he's younger
    doesn't mean his not better than the rest. It seem
    that Luigi's speed is slightly faster than Mario's.
    
    
                           Heavyweights
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    
    Donkey Kong
    This giant ape will use his power to win. Not as
    fast as others but he can be very helpful in those
    races with lots of turns.
    
    
    Wario
    Not as fast as others but still great at turning
    curves.
    
    
    Browser
    That's right one of Mario worst enemy. This guy
    will use his power to get on top of others.
    
    
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    As you can see most of the lightweights and
    middleweights are really fast. Why would
    heavyweights be good? Well at the beginning of
    every race if you can get a boost they will hit
    other racer and cuase them to be dizzy  for a while.

    Player Modes
    Use the controls stick to move to how many
    characters you want. There will be 4 choices:
    1, 2, 3, 4, press A to confirm.
    
    
    Engine Size
    Once you select Mario GP there will be different
    engine size to choose from. 50 cc, 100cc, 150 cc
    as well as others. The higher the engine size the
    harder the race will be. Choose a small one if
    you're a beginner.
    
    
    Battle Mode
    By choosing 2-4 chaaracters yu can choose battle
    mode. Here players will fight each other in a free
    for all match. Check the "Battle Mode Arenas" for
    the maps of the battle arenas.
    
    
    Time Trails
    Here you can test how long it'll take for you to
    win a certain track.
    
    
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    
                               Items
    
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
       You can aquire items to help you beat the race
     more easilly. To get items you must get the "?" block
    then it will randomly select an items for you. Here's
    all the items you an get:
    
    
    Green Shell
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    This is just a regular shell. Once you shoot it will
    only got straight until it hits something. Once a
    player gets hit with the shell He or she will crash
    and will lose time and speed.
    
    
    Tips: Once during a race you don't have to use it.
    Instead hold down the Z button and you'll drag the
    shell behind you. Once a player gets behind you he
    or she will be hit.
    
    
    Triple Green Shell
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    This is just like the green shell but now you can
    use three. Once you use it 3 shells will sorround
    you until you press the Z button again. Once you
    press the Z Button it will have the same effect
    as a regular green shell.
    
    Tip: If you keep the shell sorrounding you you
    can dodge other items and hurt any characters
    that get near you.
    
    
    Red Shell
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    Much more helpful than the green shell. Once you shoot this shell
    it will follow and hit the player in front of you. That's right,
    it will only miss if there is a large curve. You don't have to be
    near the player to hit them. The farther away you use the shell
    the better.  Once someone gets hit with the shell He or she will
    crash and will lose time and speed.
    
    
    Triple Red Shell
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    Still the same effect as the red shell but now you can use 3.
    Once you use this there will be 3 shell sorronding you. The
    three sheel will block any other items ans well as hurt a
    character once there near you. Pressing the Z Button again
    will cause the same effect as the regular red shell.
    
    
    Star
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    This is one of the best items in the entire game. Using the star
    will make you invincible for a little while. That's right, you
    will be able to dodge other items and hurt another characters
    once you touch them.
    
    
    Lightning
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    Another powerfull item. Once you use this all characters will
    shrink (except if they have a star of a ghost still in effect)
    and will lose a great ammount of speed.
    
    Tip: You can drive on them to make them flat as a paper for a
    while. But once there heal they'll be back to there regular
    size.
    
    
    Ghost
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    This is almost like the Star. The only thing different is that
    you won't be able to harm ther players and they won't be able to
    see you. Any items use one you will not hit so you got nothing
    to be worry about.
    
    
    Mushroom
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    This mushroom will boost your speed for a while.
    
    
    Triple Mushroom
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    Just like the regular mushroom except you can use it 3 times.
    
    
    Turbo Boost
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    This is the best mushroom is the best one of all! It will let you
    boost your speed as much as you want. After about 2 minutes it
    will run out.
    
    Tip: Once you have this item  keep pressing Z and you'll never
    have to slow down until the mushroom ran out.
    
    
    Spike Shell
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    Here it is, one of the best shell in the entire game! Using this
    killer will follow and hit almost all players in front of you.
    
    
    Fake ? Block
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    This is a trap to trick other players. It look just like any regular
    ? Block but it's a bomb instead. Once some one hit this trap it'll
    blow up and make them lose speed.
    
    
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    
                             Course

    Difficulty: 1
    Strategy: This is the easiest track in the game. There isn't any

    Track 2
    Moo Moo Farm
    Distance: 527m
    Diufficulty: 2
    Strategy: This is a little difficult. Why? Because once you're
    driving out of no where a Mole will come and hit you. Once you're
    hit you'll lose a lot of speed, so you better watchout. Luckily
    there is a way to tell where moles will come out. Once you see a
    little hole on the ground stay away from it or elese you're going
    to get hurt.

    Track 3
    Koopa Troopa Beach
    Distance: 691m
    Difficulty: 2
    Strategy: This track can either be easy or it can be hard. Why is
    it easy? There are 2 shortcut in this track that will put you a
    head of the others. Shortcut #1 once the race has begin you'll see
    your first ? Block. Don't get it and turn to th left to use the
    shortcut. Shortcut #2 is the one that will beat almost everybody.
    To use this shortcut you need at least 1 mushrrom to make you go
    faster. Once you get to where all the ramp is, find the ramp that
    has a hole in it. Go on the ramp and use the mushrrom right away to
    use the shortcut.

    Track 4
    Kalimari Desert
    Distance: 527m
    Difficulty: 3
    Strategy: This has got to be one of the hardest track yet! It's
    really long and there is some things that can slow you down. Once
    you begin racing try not to get in the desert because that'll make
    you lose a lot of speed. Also the most dangerous thing about this
    track is the train. That's right there are train in this track!
    Once you here one coming stay out of the track or else you'll get
    hit and lose an incredible ammount of speed! Just stop once you
    see the lights go on.

    Track 1
    Toad's Turnpike
    Distance: 1036m
    Difficulty: 3
    Strategy: In flower cup almost all tracks will be harder. The
    first track is quite simple you drive and try to get first place
    and watchout for cards. Sound simple? It's not. There will be a
    whole bunch  of cars, trucks, and buses to stand in your way.
    Hitting one of them will cause you to crash and lose speed.
    Another hard thing about this track is the ? Block. There not
    easy to get as the other tracks.

    Track 2
    Frappe Snowland
    Distance: 734m
    Difficulty: 2
    Strategy: This is a fairly simple track. There isn't a lot of
    curves and turns but there is only 1 thing you have to watchout
    for. Snowmens. That's right, hitting these will cause you to
    crash and lose speed.

    Track 3
    Choco Mountain
    Distance: 687m
    Difficulty: 2-3
    Strategy: If your racing with a low engine then this will be
    a piece of cake. But you're racing with a high one, then good
    luck. There will be falling rocks in the track to squash you
    and make you into the piece of pare. Sound tough? Well that's
    not the most dangerouse thing about this track. There will be
    a huge curve that you have to turn, but if you don't make it
    you can kiss 1st place good bye.

    Track 1
    Wario Stadium
    Distance: 1591m
    Difficulty: 4
    Strategy: This is the second longest track in the entire
    game! There isn't anything challenging in this track though.
    All you need to becareful about is a couple of turns and the
    dirt bumps. Not as challenging as other track but still hard.
    If you want to get in 1st place you have to start in 1st
    place. If you're to far behind then you will not make it!
    
    Map:
    
    This is one of the most pain fullest map ever! It's nearly
    impossible to make a map for this track but I did it.

    Track 2
    Sherbet Land
    Distance: 756m
    Difficulty: 4
    Strategy: COLD!!! <shiver,shiver,shiver>. Anyway this course
    is not very long but that's not the challnge. The most
    important thing to watchout for is penguin. That's right,
    big and little peguins. Why is these creature so tough? There
    every where! Once your driving along they'll start to slide
    and try to hit you. The other thing to watchout for is water.
    In the ice track there is a couple of holes that you can
    fall through if your going too fast. ONce you fall through
    one, your chracter will be frozen! It'll take about 2-3
    second for them to heal but that'll make you lose an
    incredible ammount of speed and time!

    Distance: 777m
    Difficulty: 4
    Strategy: This track isn't very long and it's isn't very easy
    either. As you can see this is Browser's place. Once the race
    begins it will seem as if as easiest can be, but until you
    start to go in the castle it will be very tough! There will
    be Twomp (Blue Block) that will crush you if you don't go
    fast enough. Once you come to a bridge try to slow down or
    else you'll fall in the hot lava!

    1 things. #1 the land. Once you drive of the course and in
    the jungle the natives will start trowing rocks at you! It
    will make you lose control of the kart and you'll be dizzy
    and lose a lot of time.

    Yoshi Valley
    Distance: 772m
    Difficulty: 3
    Strategy: What! I can't see the characters order! Is there
    something wrong with my game version? Don't worry there isn't
    anything wrong with your game. Yoshi Valley it won't let you
    see the players places so you won't know until the end.
    Another thing about the track is there is about 4 ways you
    can pick to go. If you pick the right way at the right time
    you will be ahead of the other. Once you get to the giant
    egg try not to get too close or else you'll be squash into a
    pancake.

    Banshee Boardwalk
    Distance: 747m
    Difficulty: 4
    Strategy: This is the second last track in the game, so you
    gotta win it. Inthis track there is very difficult turns,
    places to fall down, and even bats! Once the race begin try
    to slow down a little before you get to the turns. If you
    don't turn fast enough you'll fall down in the water and
    waste a lot of time. As for the bats. Once you're inside
    the house bats will start to fly out of the trunks. Go as
    fast as you can or else the bats will push you in the water!

    and not goinmg to far behind. Since this track is long
    it will take major luck for you to catchup if you fall
    behind! And as for Chomp he will appear randomly on the
    track to bite players. IF he bite you ou will crash and
    lose time and speed!
    
    Note: Did you notice the pictures of the characters formed
          by the stars?
    
    Map:
    
        Not Availible
    I'll add it on my next update..
    
    
    That's it for the track. If some of them don't have the maps,
    I will add it soon...

                         Battle Mode Arena
    
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    What is a battle mode? Here you can fight one on one with
    other players to see whose the best at the game. It's simple.
    Each players will start with 3 ballons, if a player get hurt he
    will lose 1 ballon. The player who can last player standing is
    the winner.
    
    Ledgend:
    Name of the Arena
    Fun Factor: 1-3
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Big Donut
    Fun Factor: 1
    Strategy: This is a very easy arena. As you can tell it's just a
    big circle with lava in the middle. Try to stay away from the
    lava as much as you can. For if you fall in you'll lose 1 balloon.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Block Fort
    Fun Factor: 3
    Strategy: This has got to be one of the most funniest arena
    ever! It's big and has a lot of place to hide.The arena is very
    simple. There are 4 Block (red, blue, green, and yellow), each
    one has 3 level to go up to. Each level got a bridge to go to
    another block. It may sound a little hard but trust me it's simple.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Double Deck
    Fun Factor: 1
    Strategy: This is the hardest arena of all! It's very big and it
    is easy to get lost. If you pick to play this block it'll take
    sometime before you can find the other players. This arena isn't
    like any others. There are 3 level (green, red, green). That's
    means there is 3 different place you can hide!
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Skyscraper
    Fun Factor: 2
    Strategy: For a skyscraper arena this isn't that bad. It's
    just a little skyscraper but it's not easy. There are about
    5 different place that you can fall. If you fall in one,
    say good bye to 1 ballon. If you choose to play this arena
    it will be over real fast.
