    1.0 Introduction
    
    Hi, this is my very first FAQ, so be easy on me if there are a few  mistakes. 
    I am writing this FAQ so you can learn more about this great game, Test
    Drive 4.  This is the First Test Drive game I have played and it rules.  Test
    Drive 4 is one of the best racing games ever.

    2.0 Gameplay
    
    This all the different  styles and stuff in the game.
    ***
    2.1 Duel
    
    This is a two player option which has one player race at a time.  For
    instance,instanceplayer 1 will race one time then player two.  The only
    other thing is that the player with the best time will have his ghost racing
    around the track when another player is racing.  I have only done this
    once. 
    ***
    2.2 Link game
    
    This is when you connect two Playstations together using a special link
    plug.  I am not sure if you race at the same time since I have never tried it,
    If you E-mail me if you do race at the same time or not I will give you credit
    for telling me in my updated version.  Thanks 
    ***
    2.3 Single Race

    race most of the time.  If you finish the track with a good time you will be
    able to write your name down.

    ***
    2.9 Cars
    
    1998 Dodge Viper
    
    I donít care for this car to much, but my little Brother loves it.  The
    handling
    isnít that good in my opinion, but has a pretty nice top speed.  It has a
    hugh V-10 engine, that puts out 450 horsepower and 490 lb-ft. of torque. 
    This can send the Viper to 60MPH in 4.4 seconds and can travel a
    quarter- mile in 12.8 seconds.  It has an estimated top speed of 185.
    ----------------
    
    1998 Chevrolet Corvette
    
    This is a pretty nice car, but I donít use it much.  The all new engine in
    this
    produces 345 horsepower and 350 lb-ft. of torque to propel this car to
    60MPH in 4.7 seconds and can travel the quarter-mile in 13.3 seconds.
    -----------------
    
    1998 Jaguar XJ-220
    
    One word for this car, FAST.  My favorite car over all.  The XJ-220 is
    powered by a twin-turbo-charged V6 with four valves per cylinder.  This
    propels the Jag to 60MPH in under four seconds.  Top Speed is over
    210MPH.
    -----------------
    
    1998 TVR Cerbera
    
    I really wouldnít recommend this car.  It can reach 60MPH in 4.2 seconds
    and 100MPH in 9.9 seconds.  The 4.2 liter 75 degree V8 pumps out 360
    horses bad torque comes in at 320. 
    --------------------
    
    1995 Nissan 300ZX twin turbo special
    
    I donít like this to much either.  Itís engine is a twin-turbocharged V6 which
    produces 430 horsepower.  It can reach 60MPH in 4.5 seconds and can to
    a quarter-mile under 13 seconds.
    ---------------------
    
    1970 Chevrolet  Chevelle 454 SS LS-6 (Dealer Modified)
    
    My second favorite car in the game.  It can reach 60MPH in 4.4 seconds
    and do a quarter-mile in 12 flat.  The 454 sent 500 horsepower and 500
    lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels.
    ----------------------
    
    1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL-1 COPO 9560
    
    An average car all around if you ask me.  The engine is an Awesome
    aluminum big block with 427 cubic inches that produces 430 horsepower
    and 450 lb-ft of torque.  It can reach 60MPH in 4.2 seconds and could do a
    quarter mile in under 13 seconds at 120MPH.
    ----------------------
    
    1969 Chevrolet Corvette ZL-1
    
    O.K. car, nothing really outstanding about it exept its good acceleration. 
    The engine was an aluminum block 427 that has 430 horsepower and 460
    lb-ft of torque.  It can do a quarter-mile in around 11 seconds at at the time
    be near 130MPH.
    ------------------------
    
    1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda
    
    A pretty good car, but I never use it.  The engine is a 426 cubic inch
    hemispherical combustion chamber V8 - ďHemiĒ for short.  It has 425
    horsepower and almost 500 lb-ft of torque.  It can reach 60MPH in in just
    under 5 seconds,  It can go a quarter-mile in 13.5 seconds.
    --------------------------
    
    Shelby Cobra 427
    
    I HATE this car, if you ask me itís the worst car on the game because itís
    bad all-round.  It has a Ford 427 cubic inch engine that churns out 490
    horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.  It can reach 60 in 3.5 seconds and a
    quarter-mile speed of 120.  
    ---------------------------
    
    1998 Viper GTSR
    
    This is a pretty nice car, itís a secret car.  See 3.2 cheat codes to find out
    how to get it.  It has a horsepower of 700, can reach 60MPH in 3.2
    seconds.  Itís top speed is 225
    ----------------------------
    
    1969 Dodge Daytona
    
    It has nice handling and top speed, I would recommend this car.  It is a
    secret car, see 3.2 cheat codes for how to get it.  It has a horse power of
    425, and can reach 60MPH in 4.5 seconds.  Itís top speed is 201MPH.
    ----------------------------
    
    TVR 12/7
    
    This is an excellent car all around.  This car is a car that the company
    made up, so it is really nice. This is a secret car, see 3.2 cheat codes in
    how to get it. It has a horse power of 680, and can reach 60MPH in 3.0
    seconds.  Itís top speed is 220.
    -----------------------------
    
    Pitbull Special
    
    This is the other made up car in the game, it lacks a top speed, but has
    such good handling you will barely ever come in anything but first.  When
    ever I use it I come in first.  This is a secret car, see 3.2 Cheat Codes for
    how to get the car.  It has a horsepower of 800, and can reach 60MPH in
    1.5 seconds.  It has a top speed of 170PMH.

    2.10 Tracks
    
    Keswick England
    
    A pretty simple track with that has narrow roads with sometype of a fence
    all the time about a foot away from the road.  There are two different
    tunnels in that race.  Watch out for cops that will make you stop for about
    1 second before you can start going again.
    -------------------
    
    San Francisco, USA
    
    The best track in the game, if you race it, youíll know why.  You start off on
    a pretty big bridge.  You have mostly buildings for fences.  Has heavy
    traffic.  Has huge jumps in the middle of the race, with intersections
    between the jumps.  Around the end of the race it has a few jumps right
    next to sharp corners.  Watch out for cops who will pull you over for about
    1 second before you can go again.

    Berlin, Switzerland
    
    It has light traffic, and and at the beginning you race in a city going
    upwards till finally you reach the top of the mountains to a snowy top
    where traffic gets a little more heavier.  the roads are pretty narrow.  There
    are 5 tunnels and 1 bridge.  Watch out for cops who will pull you over for
    about 1 second before you can go again.
