    I. Introduction                                                               (INTR)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Well, first off I gotta say that I doubt I'll ever get this thing to encompass the
    enire game, so please don't expect it to. This one's still pretty new, hasn't even
    been out for a month yet, and I doubt that many people know everything yet. I'm
    just putting everything I know out there in the hope that it helps you guys. If you
    find something wrong in here, or you want to add something to it, just email me or
    try and catch me on Yahoo! Messenger, chances are that I'm online, so just IM me.
    If what you say helps, then I'll post it in my update and I'll add your name to
    the Thanks section. OK, enough crap, lets get this party started.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    II. Controls                                                                  (CTRL)

    NOTE!!!!
    ------------
    The controls will stay the same in a race, although the D-Pad will steer if you're
    in a Drag race, otherwise, it's unusable. Also, if you are doing a special event,
    you will be able to use the D-Pad as you would in Explore Mode.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    III. What's New?                                                              (NEW?)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Before you jump right into playing the game, there's ALOT that's changed from NFSU.
    For starters, there isn't a little race map anymore. You get free range over the
    entire city (kinda). Although you only start with a little bit of it, as the game
    progresses, you'll unlock new areas of the city to play in. Each new area will have
    it's own shops to unlock, bringing you new parts.
    
    There's also a few new race types to become falmiliar with, but for now, I'll just
    name them: the Outruns, Street X,Underground Racing League (or URL), and SUV races.
    Each one brings a new element to the arena and more opportunities to kick some
    serious ass.
    
    Lastly, there's the sponsors. As you make yourself known in Bayview, you'll get a
    chance to sign with various sponsors and start making some serious money. Each
    company has it's own signing bonus, purse for winning a sponsored race, and it's
    contract terms. The terms are generally the same between sponsors of the same
    level, and just states how many and which races you win, also it will give you a
    number of DVD covers that your car has to be featured on. The common things that
    the sponsors will have in common are the URL victory purse and that you will be
    allowed to get a new car of your choice, for free!!! I'll get into the specifics
    later on in the car section.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IV. Map Systems                                                               (MAPS)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    In order to fully experience Bayview, you'll have to become a master of the maps.
    There's two types to speak of, the World Map, and your Mini-Map. The Mini-Map is
    pretty self-explanitory and is always sitting there at the bottom left of your
    screen. It will center on your location, and allow you to see the near-by races &
    shops. It also is the only way to find Outrun races in the city. These will appear
    as an orange triangle on the map.
    
    The World Map, on the other hand, will show the entire city of Bayview. By hitting
    either L or R, you can have it zoom in on different areas of the city.  This map
    also has the ability to use a GPS system. To use this, you just select the type of
    event that you want to use, then the location you want by hitting Left or Right on
    the D-Pad, then hitting A once, and again to confirm it. Once GPS is activated, as
    long as you are on an actual road, a blue arrow will appear on screen and will show
    you the directions to take to get to your destination. While this may not be the
    shortest way, it is often the easiest for beginners. Here's a key for the map:
    
    --------
    KEY
    --------
    Green Triangle   = Your Car
    Orange Triangle  = Outrun Opponent's Car
    Purple Dot       = Rachel's Garage
    Blue Dot         = Performance Shop
    Green Dot        = Body Shop
    Yellow Dot       = Car Specialty Shop
    Red Dot          = Graphics Shop
    Yellow Star      = Special Event
    Green Circle     = Sprint Race
    Purple Circle    = Circuit Race
    Yellow Circle    = Drift Race
    Cyan Circle      = Street X Race
    Blue Circle      = Drag Race
    Gold Circle      = URL Race
    Orange Circle    = SUV Race
    
    -----------
    NOTE!!!
    -----------
    If you notice a colored "X" on the map, that is one of the sponsored races. It is
    required in order to fufill your contract. Don't worry though, you'll get more
    cash if you win for your troubles.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    V. NoS & Racebreaker                                                          (NOSR)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Another big change between the two Underground games is how NoS works. Instead of
    only getting one little gauge for NoS and having that last you the whole race, you
    have access to a new "Racebreaker" gauge on top of what you get, and the ability to
    refill it almost anytime you want. You end up losing the Style Point factor of
    races, and instead it goes straight to your NoS/Racebreaker gauge. Here I'll list
    the ways I know of to fill it up:
    
    -----------------
    Avoid Accident
    -----------------
    
    This one's pretty self explanitory. All you need to do is go very fast and be very
    close to an AI traffic car (not a racer!!), then blow right by them. This stunt
    yields a reward of 100 points to the gauge, and can be multiplied up to 5 times.
    
    -----------------
    Clean Section
    -----------------
    
    This is a failry difficult feat to accomplish and still smoke your opponents at the
    same time. A Clean Section bonus is attained by making it through a section of the
    race without slamming into a wall, car, or anything else. This lil trick scores
    150 points, and has the same multiplier.
    
    -----------------
    Clean Lap
    -----------------
    
    This has got to be the second hardest thing to do in the game. As the name states,
    you have to go an entire lap without any collisions to land this bad boy. As I've
    yet to do this, I don't know the points for it (wink wink ;) ), but will add it
    when I find that out, and if there's a multiplier.
    
    -----------------
    Hydros
    -----------------
    
    As the name states, this trick involves your hydraulics. By holding down the
    handbrake and moving your Control Stick in a rhythmic motion (example: Left, then
    Right, Left, Right, etc...) repeatedly. The point total for this depends on how
    long you keep the show going. It's fairly easy to score a few hundred points, and
    perfect if you wanna get ready before doing a special event.
    
    -----------------
    360 (Donuts for you simple folk)
    -----------------
    
    This is trick to do if you need NoS in Explore Mode, and in a hurry. All you need
    is to get a (fairly) perfect circle burned out on the road, and you'll score 400
    points. Unfortunately, this doesn't have a multiplier on it.
    
    -----------------
    Lead Lap
    -----------------
    
    Another simple explanation. Just be in first place at the end of the lap to net
    150 points. Luckily, this bad boy has a multiplier.
    
    -----------------
    Spray Show
    -----------------
    
    By pressing the NoS button when you're not accelerating, you can purge some from
    your system in a little show for the crowd. It only scores you 100 points, so
    be sure to just tap the button and nothing more.
    
    -----------------
    Drafting
    -----------------
    
    Another stunt to rely on how long you're doing it. Drafting is accomplished by
    driving your car into the small vacuum area left in the wake of a fast car. This
    not only will increase your NoS gauge, but while you're there, you can slingshot
    around the car you were drafting, then use what you just got to blaze out of
    there, leaving your opponent in the dust.
    
    -----------------
    Reverse
    -----------------
    
    Yes, as sad as it is to say, you can actually get points from driving backwards.
    The exact total, however, depends on how far you end up going without hitting
    anything. Remember that if you do, you'll get nothing, so be sure to take it
    easy.
    
    -----------------
    Head Start
    -----------------
    
    A head start is just that, a head start. You'll know you've got it when you go
    off the line without having to burnout or anything. I haven't figured out an
    idiot-proof way of getting them all the time yet, but I'm close. Anyway, this
    nets you 200 big ones.
    
    -----------------
    Burnout
    -----------------
    
    If you are flooring it right before and as the race starts, holding the
    accelerator down will increase your chances and how many points you get.
    It's also possible to do this in Explore Mode, but I've only gotten it a few
    times with something like the Supra, or a similarly handling vehicle.
    
    -----------------
    Power Slide
    -----------------
    
    Ahh, the trick anyone can do. Power sliding is a form of drifting, and will
    reward you according to the distance you slide for. It's possible to keep
    this running for a while, but the longest slide I've managed is about 565.
    
    -----------------
    J-Turn
    -----------------
    
    A very difficult trick to master, the J-Turn yields 500 points. You can do
    it by driving in reverse, then whipping yourself around 180 degrees, and
    going forward again. A rumor I've heard states that you can't do this if
    the counter for Reverse has started, but I've yet to confirm it.
    
    -----------------
    Shortcut
    -----------------
    
    Not something to happen in the game often, the Shortcuts are worth 200
    points. They're rare, the only one I've found yet is in the northern
    area of Beacon Hill.
    
    -----------------
    Hang Time
    -----------------
    
    Obviously, this trick will reward you points for jumping a distance. How
    many depends on how far you end up going.
    
    -----------------
    Accident Clear
    -----------------
    
    I'm not sure as to the real name of this, as this trick was done by my
    friend Red. This has got to be the rarest and most difficult trick to do
    in the entire game. It involves you jumping over AI traffic. For each one
    you manage to clear, you are supposed to land a whopping 1000 points, not
    to mention that yet again, you have the infamous multiplier!!
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VI. Race Types                           (Never get tired of that ;)  )----> (RTYPE)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    In this game, there's a total of 10 different types of racing, which I'll proceed
    with going into. The amount of Reputation points you earn will depend on the space
    you put between yourself and second place.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    VI1. Circuit Races                (CRCT)
    ----------------------------------------
    
    This is the most basic type of racing there is. You'll have a track that will take
    up a portion of the city, and you'll drive it a few times. Throughout the race,
    there's going to be "walls" blocking roadways. Pay attention to the way they point
    and drive accordingly.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    VI2. Drag Races                   (DRAG)
    ----------------------------------------
    
    One of the more fun types of races, Drag races will pit you on a (fairly) straight
    road, with speed and acceleration the determining factors early on. Later in the
    game however, cars with smaller engines and poor handling would be bad choices, as
    traffic increases and the races get longer, leaving you a high probability of
    either totaling your car or blowing out the engine. Your best bet is to get what is
    called a "Perfect Shift". This means that you shifted at the point where it will
    take your engine the least amount of time to rev back up. This can be found in the
    coloring of your needle on the tach. Here's the color coding to the shifting
    
    White/Light Blue   =  Short Shift: VERY BAD, takes forever to get back up.
    Dark Blue          =  Good Shift:  OK, it still takes a little time though.
    Green              =  Perfect Shift: Alright, this takes no time to get up again.
    Red                =  Over Rev: Bad, you took to long and you lost power for it.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    VI3. Sprint Races                  (SPRN)
    ----------------------------------------
    
    A Sprint race is a simple "A to B" race. You start at one spot, and your goal is
    to get to the other spot as soon as you can. And yes, as sad as it is, some people
    needed that to be explained to them.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    VI4. Drift Races                  (DRIF)
    ----------------------------------------
    
    Drifting has got to be the most fun of all the races. Your objective is to
    drift along the track, racking up as many drifting points as you can. As you get
    higher in the drifts, they'll give various names to them, the hightst (I think)
    is "Drift King". This will be shown if you manage to score a 100,000 point drift.
    While these names mean nothing, it is nice to see how you do.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    VI5. Street X Races               (STRX)
    ----------------------------------------
    
    One of the most annoying races to do. The track is set up like a drift track, but
    you race them instead. The small area and tight turns will make things much more
    difficult, so your best bet is to get in front early. The AI will play extremely
    dirty here, so be on your guard if one's close.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    VI6. Outrun Races                 (OTRN)
    ----------------------------------------
    
    The easiest race to get into. All you need to do is find another racer in Explore
    Mode, then get close enough to him, and hit the challenge button. You'll have to
    get ahead of him, then open the gap to 1,000 feet. While this doesn't seem too
    hard, the line between you is a straight one, so turns mean nothing. A good idea
    is to be on the highway or a long straight road, then get up on their side near
    the back of the car, then challenge them and spin them out right away and floor
    it outta there. Be warned, these races can easily run into the 10 minute+ bracket,
    and while their cash reward isn't too good, it'll pay off. Every now and then,
    after you beat someone in an Outrun, you'll get the chance for a unique upgrade.
    It may be performance related, a new set of rims, or even just vinyls, but you
    won't be likely to find these anywhere else, so if you get one, do it right away.
    
    -----------
    NOTE!
    -----------
    
    The unique performance upgrades that you get for the car will not show up in the
    parts area of your garage. The only way you'll notice the difference is in driving
    your car.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    VI7. URL Races                    (URLS)
    ----------------------------------------
    
    The "pinnacle of street racing", the URL race is the type you have to earn to race
    in. You won't have many of these through the game,  and you won't be able to access
    any until you've gotten yourself a sponsor. These babies will net you tons of cash,
    and you'll unlock a car after winning one. Be careful not to do all of these right
    away, as you're likely to lose some of the events you can enter if you do.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    VI7. SUV Races                    (SUVS)
    ----------------------------------------
    
    As the name suggests, you'll be racing SUV's in this type. It can vary between
    the other types (ie. Circuit or Sprint), and fairly easy to win. It's a common
    thing to win a race by 30 seconds+. Just remember that the SUV's are more likely
    to roll (supposedly), and that their handling will always be horrible.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    VI7. Special Events               (SPEC)
    ----------------------------------------
    
    While it doesn't really count as a race, these things are important. They'll vary
    between DVD covers, magazines, or unique upgrades. You'll end up having to go to
    one spot for the info, then you'll be given so much time to get to another place/
    shop, or else you can just retry it. These things have been known to disappear
    after a little while, so make sure to get them quick. They'll always be that
    yellow star on your map.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    VI7. Hidden Races                 (HIDE)
    ----------------------------------------
    
    Not officially a type of race, a hidden race is one that isn't shown on your maps.
    These things are always worth more than a regular race is (sometimes more than a
    sponsored race). The easiest way to track these things is by listening to your
    SMS. They'll come across saying that there's action in area "X", and that they
    haven't got the exact spot. That's your cue to hightail it over there and start
    looking around for races on your screen that arent on the map. These things have
    a tendency to repeat their locations in certain places, so try to remember them
    for later too. An example for the Beacon Hill/Jackson Heights area is, at the
    intersection right before going up to Jackson Heights, the northwest corner will
    almost always have a circuit race there.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VII. Shops                  						      (SHOP)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    What would a racing game be without shops to upgrade your car? In Underground 2, you
    have 4 different types of shops for you to tweak your car at: the Body Shop, the
    Performance Shop, the Graphics Shop, and the Car Specialties Shop. You also have
    access to a garage and various Car Lots throughout the city.  I'll also list the
    costs for the upgrades and their visual benefits if any.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    VII1. Garage                      (GRAG)
    ----------------------------------------
    
    While each area has their own shops, the Garage has only one in the whole game. In
    here you can switch which one of your cars you want to drive, you can also switch
    the various parts you own on or off of your vehicle, or you can run a dyno and
    tweak the little things in your car like your sway bars, or how your NoS system is
    set up. The World Map option here allows you to go over races you may have missed
    (trust me, you missed some). While these races supposedly offer you no reward, if
    you restart the race right away, then go and win, you'll get the Reputation points
    and the cash instead of the big stiffy.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    VII2. Car Lot                     (CLOT)
    ----------------------------------------
    
    Ahh, the Car Lot. Here you can pick up new cars as you get sponsors, or you could
    trade in one you already have. Be warned in doing this, the parts you already have
    will NOT be transfered to the new car and you can't take parts from one car and
    put them on another one. If you're early in the game and wondering why you don't
    have any new cars to pick, the answer is the URL's. After each one you win, you'll
    get a message on your SMS letting you know that they have a new ride there. Don't
    be too antsy to trade off your car though. Your starter car, if kept upgraded,
    can still kick some ass even late in the game. I've been able to use my Civic in
    Stage 4 races (except drags) without any problems, still smoking them by fifteen
    seconds or more.

    VII3. Body Shop                   (BODY)
    ----------------------------------------
    
    The Body Shop is your place for upgrading the overall look of your car. Here's
    the place for spoilers, bumpers, mirrors and the like. While there's carbon
    fiber parts here as well, keep in mind that you can't paint them, so your car
    may not look as good with them. It is possible to get a 10-star car (you need
    one to challenge Caleb at the end of the game)without any carb parts, but how
    escapes me yet.

    ----------------------------------------
    
    The Car Specialty Shop is where you'll score some neons, tints, and alot of other
    crazy shit. In order to get the Engine Neon, you'll need the Extreme upgrades for
    Engine, ECU, and Turbo, while you need to have Nitrous before you can get a purge
    system. Also, to get Trunk Neons, you'll have to have the Custom Layout (Group 3)
    first.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    What would a racing game be without some sweet cars? A serious improvement on the
    last NFSU, this one allows you to own 5 cars instead of just one.  Here I'll list
    both the stock and Level 3 specs on each ride in the game.
    
    Key
    ------
    DT     =   Drive Train
    FW     =   Front Wheel Drive
    RW     =   Rear Wheel Drive
    AW     =   All Wheel Drive
    HP     =   Horsepower
    TQ     =   Torque  (in ft-lbs.)
    0-60   =   Time from 0 mph to 60 mph (in seconds)
    0-100  =   Time from 0 mph to 100 mph (in seconds)
    TS     =   Top speed (in mph)
    H      =   Handling %
    
    NOTE: The "H" stat is not one I'm entirely sure on. I had a friend work that out
          for me and I honestly don't know how accurate it is, so if you can verify
          or correct this, then e-mail me with it and let me know. Do that and you
          got a spot in the credits.

    Well, this is the part where I go on and on about who can use this, who can't and
    every other piece of crap like that. I'll make this simple, the ONLY website able to
    use this document right now is GameFAQs. That'll probably change soon, as I'm sure
    that Neoseeker will want it too, so I'll go ahead now and tell them sure, just e-mail
    me before this gets posted on the site. Now that that BS is done, lets carry on.
