    |                                                                             |
    |  Extra Cars:            Shoot all Galaxians during load-up and you can      |
    |                         choose eight extra cars.                            |
    |                                                                             |
    |  Extra Tracks:          Position first on all tracks and you can choose     |
    |                         four extra tracks. The Tracks will be the same as   |
    |                         the regular but you will race them backwards.       |
    |                                                                             |
    |  Mirror Tracks:         Drive through the wall behind you at the start of   |
    |                         a race with a speed of atleast 100 mph. Now the     |
    |                         track will be mirrored.                             |
    |                                                                             |
    |  Black Car:             Finish the first four tracks in first place. Then   |
    |                         race the Time Trial or the Time Trial extra. Now    |
    |                         the black car will also be in the race and if you   |
    |                         win it will be yours to drive. (Don't worry if he   |
    |                         pass you on lap 1. He will wait for you on lap 2.   |
    |                         You must drive almost perfect on lap 2 and 3 or     |
    |                         the black car will pass you and you will lose.)     |
    |                                                                             |
    |  Modify Flag:           At the Title Screen: Hold L1+R1 or L2+R2 and use    |
    |                         the pad to modify the flag.                         |

    |                                                                             |
    |  Spinning Cars/Tracks:  When selecting a car or track you can rotate them   |
    |                         by holding L1 or R1.                                |
    |                                                                             |
    |  Favourite Music:       When the game has loaded completely you can swap    |
    |                         the Ridge Racer CD with a regular music CD. Now     |
    |                         you can listen to your favourite music while        |
    |                         playing the game. Tunes 1-6 are played during the   |
    |                         race. Number 7 is played during the Demo and tune   |
    |                         number 8 is played at the Menus before your race    |
    |                         and during the replays.                             |
    |                                                                             |
    |  Fish Tailing:          Fish Tailing is where your rear wheels slide to     |
    |                         the outside of a turn and the front slide to the    |
    |                         inside. You can do it to get around sharp turns     |
    |                         with ease. When coming to a turn, release the       |
    |                         accelerator, hit the brake and turn in the          |
    |                         appropriate direction. When you have driven         |
    |                         through the turn, release the D-Pad shortly and     |
    |                         then start accelerate. (If you start accelerate     |
    |                         while you are turning you will continue sliding.)   |
    |                         Don't hold the break too long or you will lose a    |
    |                         lot of speed. If you do it perfectly you will       |
    |                         actually gain speed after the Fish Tail.            |
    |                                                                             |
    |  Starting Tips:         To get a good start, rev the engine as close to     |
    |                         8000 rpm as possible right before the announcer     |
    |                         says "GO!". Although don't exceed 8000 rpm or       |
    |                         your tires will peel out a lot.                     |
    |                                                                             |
