    This FAQ is for anybody who needs help with Parking Mode on the 
    Dreamcast version of the game. This does not apply to the parking modes 
    that comes during the arcade. This made for the seperate mode "Parking" 
    on the Dreamcast version. I will not answer any emails that is not about 
    parking mode for this game.

    II. About Parking Mode
    --------------------
    
    This is one of my favorite modes. In this, there are six levels (two are 
    unlocked later) where you have to do certain objectives, and park at 
    certain spots within the time limit. I will try to explain how to get 
    through them here.
    
    
    --------------------
    III. Obstacles
    --------------------
    
    There are a few things you have to avoid to be able to make it. Here are 
    the things to avoid and the penalties they give
    
    Crates: -4 seconds
    
    Lightposts: -4 seconds
    
    18 wheelers: -6 seconds
    
    The wall: -6 seconds
    
    There is also one thing that will give you time.
    
    Green circles: +1 second

    Difficulty: 2/10
    
    When it says "GO!" Head up the hill, take the right and then turn left

    Part Three
    
    Time to complete: 43"00
    
    Difficulty: 3/10
    
    Depite what it looks like, you don't need to reverse. Go around the 
    building, and try to avoid the crates. Turn left, and turn right as you 
    go up the hill. Line yourself up to go between the rocks, and make 
    another left. At the very top, head to the left and pull into the green 
    box
    
    ---------------------------------
    
    Part Four
    
    Time to complete: 24"00
    
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    In this one, it is crucial you go in reverse and pull in therr right, or 
    you will fail. If you go forward into there, you will have to reverse, 
    and run out of time. So you will have to pull into the area backwards. 
    When it says "GO!", turn to the left, and make it so you will pull in 
    there safely.

    Part Five
    
    Time to complete: 36"00?
    
    Difficulty: 5/10
    
    You will have to go back to the beginning now, this is why it was 
    crucial to back up, so you will be facing the right way. Just go back 
    the way you came, and try not to get hit with -6 sec penalties.
