    Version 0.2:   Got pretty much everything in this document, except for how
                   to unlock Tim Schaffer, Jeff Shepard, and the late Kevin
                   Gobrecht, and tracks like Icy Eldora, Rattler Valley and
                   Canyon Run. I'll get to it on the next update.

    Version 0.1:   Birth of the document.
    
    ==============================================================================
                                     Controls
    ==============================================================================
    
    These controls are from the World of Outlaws: SprintCars Instruction Booklet
    
    
    -left/right directional buttons                  -steering
    -up/down directional buttons                     -wing adjustments
    -left analog stick                               -steering
    -right analog stick                              -accelerate/brake
    -X button                                        -accelerate
    -[] button                                       -brake
    -/\ button                                       -change view
    -L1 button                                       -glance back
    -R1 button                                       -tear-offs
    -L2 button                                       -glance left
    -R2 button                                       -glance right
    -START button                                    -pause menu
    
    
    If you asked what Tear-Offs means, it is a plastic strip that goes on your
    helmet. All Sprint Car drivers have this, or else they will have mud on their
    face and they would likely have a hard time seeing.
    
    My cousin drive for a Mini-Sprint class and I've been to couple races with him
    and he also have the tear-off on his helmet.
    
    How does this work?
    All Sprint Car tracks are covered with dirt and mud, you will most likely
    get dirt on your game screen. When you are behind a car, a whole mess of dirt
    will fill your screen and you have a set limited number of tear-offs on the
    right hand side of the screen. ONLY tear-off when you CAN'T see anything ahead
    of you. Try to avoid being behind a car and make a clean pass. Press R1 to
    tear-off.
    
    -Flags------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Of course there is going to be flag waving in the game and here is the list
    of flags and their color and desciptions. These are from the World of Outlaws:
    SprintCars instruction booklet.
    
    -Green Flag
        The green flag indicates that racing conditions are normal, and you may
        overtake other cars. It is shown at the start of the race and at a restart,
        to indicate the race is on.
    
    -White Flag
        At the start of your last lap, the white flag is shwon to indicate that
        you only have one lap remaining before the end of the race. The white flag
        is also shown when one of your opponents wins the race, indicating that you
        may only complete your current lap, even if it wouldn't have been your
        final one. This happens when you are one or more laps down from the leader.
    
    -Yellow Flag
        When a car has been damaged to the point where it cannot continue the race
        and is positioned so as to be hazardous to the cars still in the race, a
        yellow flag is called. The yellow flag will also be shwon if a car stalls
        and needs to be restarted.
      
        The screen will fade to black, and the race will restart again at the
        start finish line with the wreckage cleared away. For the restart, cars
        remain in the positions they were in when the yellow flag was called. For
        instance, if there was a lapped car between you and the car in the
        position in front of you when the yellow flag was called, it will still be
        there when you restart. You'll still have to overtake him, just like the
        car in front of you did.
    
    -Black Flag (Illegal Lap)
        If you stray off the racing surface for too long, trying to cut a corner,
        you can expect to be shown the black flag. A lap only counts as complete
        if you've followed the track all the way around. If you continue on under
        the black flag, your current lap will not count towards the total numbers
        of laps completed. If you do get shwon the black flag, the best thing to
        do is to head back to where you left the track as quickly as possible, and
        rejoin the race at or before that point.
    
        You will also be shown a black flag for an illegal lap if you head in the
        wrong direction around the track. If you turn around and follow the track
        correctly, the black flag will be removed when you return to the point at
        which you started traveling in the wrong direction.
    
    -Black Flag (Car Wrecked)
        You will be shown the black flag and your car will be disqualified when
        you are unable to continue due to having sustained too much damage from
        colliding with other cars or objects around the track.
    
    -Checkered Flag
        The checkered flag is shwon at the end of the final lap of the race, to
        signify that the race is over.
    
    
    
    ==============================================================================
                                      Modes
    ==============================================================================
    
    -Arcade Mode
    Here is a good place for you get to pick a difficulty setting and a driver
    of your choice. Get to familiarize yourself with all of the tracks while
    competing with other drivers, try to find a good line to get yourself to the
    front of the traffic.
    
    Also try to familiarize yourself with the Wing Adjustment (up/down directional
    buttons) and get the hang of it.
    
    You can unlock some of the drivers during this mode, but you have to win the
    race in order to unlock them. Look up in the Drivers section of the page to
    know what track to beat to get who.
    
    -Career Mode
    In here, you will only have $12,000 in your balance. You can't go racing
    without a car!
    
    -Trailer
       Laptop:         -Purchase, sell or upgrade cars in the race shop.
       Tackboard:      -Repair any damage that your car has taken.
       WOO Flag:       -Enter the next selected event in your currently selected
                        car.
    
    -Office
       Trophy case:    -View the trophies you've won during your career.
       Globe:          -View or enter a practice session on any of the tracks you
                       can travel to.
       Notebook:       -Select the events you wish to enter, or view the points
                       tables.
       Computer:       -View current sponsor, or select available sponsorship
                       offers.
    
    -Race Mode--------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There are several different race modes you can enter before going to the final
    race. Here are the descriptions of each modes and they are from the World of
    Outlaws: SprintCars instruction booklet.
    
    -Practice
        The first stage of the race format is a free practice. Here you can feel
        your way around the track and see how well your car setup is suited to
        the current racing conditions.
    
    -Qualifying
        In the qualifying session, each car gets a warm-up lap to get up to race
        speed and two timed laps to set a fast time. Your qualifying position
        determines the heat into which you'll be placed and your position on the
        heat race grid. There's a cash prize for the fastest qualifying time of
        the evening.
    
    -Heats (1 and 2)
        There are two heat races of twelve cars each. Finish in the top six in
        your heat and you've qualified for the evening's A Main. If you finish
        seventh or below, you then have to battle it out in the B Main for an
        opportunity to get back into the A Main.
    
    -Trophy Dashes
        The top six cars from each heat qualify automatically for the A Main, but
        first go to the trophy dash. The trophy dash is a short, twelve-car race,
        in which you attempt to improve your starting position for the A Main. The
        trophy dash offers no prize money, but is an excellent opportunity to aid
        you with a chance to win the feature race.
    
    -The B Main
        The B Main is a twelve-car race for those who didn't qualify for the A
        Main race. Cars are placed on the grid based on their qualifying times,
        rather than their finishing positions in the heats. There is prize money
        to be won in the B Main for those who finish fifth or below, but that's
        the end of their night. The top four finishers get no prize money, but
        line up on the A Main grid, where they get another shot at racing for the
        real money.
    
    -The A Main
        The big event of the night is set up with the twelve cars from the trophy
        dash and the four best finishers from the B Main. The first six starting
        positions are the top six positions in the trophy dash. The remaining six
        cars from the dash and the top four from the B Main fill out the rest of
        the A Main grid, based on qualifying times. This is what it all boils
        down to, so you'd better race hard from flag-stand to flag-stand - there's
        no second chance.

    -Car Tuning-------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    When you go practice, your car may be unstable or you don't feel too
    comfortable with how your car act and feel. After the practice run or whatever
    race mode you've just completed, you can tune your car. Here is the list
    of tunes and their descriptions, they are from the World of Outlaws: SprintCars
    instruction booklet.
    
    -Stagger
        You'll notice that the right rear wheel of a sprint car is larger than
        the left rear wheel, to give it a tendency to turn to the left. Stagger
        is the difference in circumference between the two rear tires of the
        sprint car.
    
        The amount of stagger used varies, depending on track size and conditions.
        On the shorter track, stagger can be as much as 19-21'', down to about
        11'' on the longest tracks. If you are loose, try to decrease the stagger,
        but in so doing you are going to lose grip.
    
    -RR Spacing
        RR spacing is the amount that the right rear wheel is spaced out from the
        chassis of the sprint car.
    
        The most commonly used amount of spacing is 9_'' (from the frame rail to
        the inside side-wall of the tire), but can be varied in _'' amounts in
        either direction. RR spacing is generally based on track conditions - a
        tackier track  early in the race event requires a larger amount of spacing
        than a drier one.
    
    -Ride Height
        Ride height is adjusted for the front and rear axles individually. The
        front end is usually a bit higher than the rear.
    
        On a slick track, you should set your ride height a bit higher to get the
        car to transfer weight to the right rear. Tacky or rough tracks require a
        lower ride height to keep the car from bouncing or upsetting its balance.
    
    -Shock Type
        You can choose the type of shocks that are used on each wheel of your
        sprint car. Sprint cars used compressed gas shocks, without bypass valves.
        Each individual shock has its own adjustable compression and rebound
        rates.
    
        The basic types of shock used are:
        0: easy-up (hard compression, soft balanced)
        1: standard (compression and rebound are even)
        2: tie-down (soft compressiom, hard rebound)
    
        The left rear wheel is almost invariably set up with tie-down shocks, so
        that the car squats down into the corner but springs back up far more
        gradually. Both front wheels are sometimes set up with tie-down shocks,
        depending on the rest of the car setup. The right rear wheel normally has
        a standard shock setup.
    
    -Torsion Bar
        Torsion bars provide tension for each wheel of the sprint car. The number
        displayed refers to the size of the torsion bar used: the smaller the
        number, the small the torsion bar.
    
        Smaller torsion bars react quickly, but don't provide much resistance,
        whereas large torsion bars are stiffer and offer more resistance, but are
        slower to react. You'll have to experiment to find the combination of
        torsion bars that best suits your driving style.
    
    -Wing Position
        The starting position of the wing may be set anywhere. It is generally set
        about a third of the way back from the front of its range of travel.
    
        The most likely scenario is that the wing will need to be moved back
        during the race (to provide more down force, as the track dries out, and
        as fuel is consumed), but most drivers still like to leave some room to
        move the wing forward if it is needed (in the case that the car is setup
        a little too "tight").
    
    -Wing Pitch
        Wing pitch is measured when the car is stationary and is the angle that
        the lower left hand edge of the wing makes with a horizontal plane. The
        steeper the wing pitch, the more down force is provided to the rear wheels
        of the sprint car.
    
        While racing, you can move the position of the wing forward or back, which
        also changes the wing pitch within a range of about 6 degrees. For example,
        if you are using the typical setup of positioning the wing a third of
        the way back, at 18 degrees, the wing can be moved between 14 and 22
        degrees.
    
    -Quick Change
        The "quick change" is housed on the differential and contains two gears
        that determine the drive ratio of the vehicle. The drive ratio depends on
        the ratio between the numbers of teeth the gears have. This can be changed
        very quickly and may be adjusted between the different stages of a race
        event. Drive ratio is adjusted between 4.97 and 6.04. The shorter the
        track being raced on, the higher the valve of the ratio should be set.
    
    -Weight Jacking
        Weight may be balanced between both the front and back, as well as the
        left and right of the car. Weight is jacked into the car by pre-loading
        the torsion bars on each corner of the car.
    
        On a slick track you generally want to move more weight to the left side
        and front of the car, so it rolls over towards the right rear when
        cornering. Conversely, on a tacky track you want to keep the weight over
        the right rear so that the car stays tilted as it rolls through the
        corner.

    Bloomington
    -Where?                                -What kind of track is it?
       Bloomington, Indiana                       semi-banked, 1/4 mile
    
    -Your opinion?
       Long straightaways and the corners are as long too. To get a decent time, 
       slide to the inside line into turn 1 and 3 and release the gas a bit, once
       you hit turn 2 and 4, punch the gas and go on the high line on the
       straightaways to get more room to go into the corners.
    ---------------------------------------
    Bristol
    -Where?                                -What kind of track is it?
       Bristol, Tennessee                         high-banked, 1/2 mile
      
    -Your opinion?
       I've been to Bristol for the Sprint Car race one time, back in June of
       2000 I believe. At first, I did not get a good lap on my first practice
       on this track. If you try to go to the low side in the corners, you might
       not likely get a good lap, unless you managed to somehow. On the
       straightaways, cut inside to the corner quickly and let the car slide up the
       the track, but don't hit the wall though, and once you are on turn 2 or 4,
       press the gas.

    Canyon Run
    -Win the championship under Easy difficulty in Arcade mode to unlock this
     track.
    
    -This state-of-the-art, 1-mile track is a double-loop with a crossover, and
     features both dirt and asphalt sections. It's a true test of your skills,
     and offers a spectacle for the fans, with its extensive stadium seating
     and picturesque surroundings.
    
    -Your opinion?
       Great track to run on, all turns are left, but watch out when you cross
       the asphalt/dirt barrier, your car may jerk to the right, in this case
       stay on the center or left line of the asphalt part of the track.
    
    ---------------------------------------
    Eldora
    -Where?                                -What kind of track is it?
       Rossburg, Ohio                             high-banked, 1/2 mile
       
    -Your opinion?
       I did not qualify real well on this track, the corners are long and the
       straightaways are short, cut inside turn 1 or 3 and let the car slide up
       to the middle line and press the gas at the beginning of turn 2 and 4 to
       get a decent lap.
    ---------------------------------------
    Huset's
    -Where?                                -What kind of track is it?
       Brandon, South Dakota                      high-banked, 3/8 mile
    
    -Your opinion?
       The bankings in the corner is high, giving you a good, decent lap when
       entering turn 1 and 3, while letting the car sldie up a bit into turn 2
       and 4, use the gas after exiting turn 2 and 4.
    ---------------------------------------
    I-55
    -Where?                                -What kind of track is it?
       Pevely, Missouri                           high-banked, 1/3 mile
    
    -Your opinion?
       I did pretty good on this track, personally, this is one of the tracks that
       I'm good at. To get a decent lap, cut in on turn 1 and 3 in the middle line,
       and try not to get to the inside line. At the halfway point in the corner,
       let the car slide up a little and punch the gas on turn 2 and 4.

    Icy Eldora
    -Win the championship under Outlaw difficulty in Arcade mode to unlock this
    track.
    
    -Take a drive around legendary Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio in the winter.
     The track isn't prepared for sprint cars at this time of year, but you might
     want to check out what's set up on the inside of the track when they're not
     expecting you.
    
    -Your opinion?
       It is not as slippery as I would have expected, you can go fast if you
       want, but you'll have to simulataneously press the gas a couple time on
       the corners, when on the straightaways, use the snow on the right line to
       get speed. (in the middle of the track is two sets of ramp like those
       one in the BMX or Dave Mirra style, and there is also a hockey rink.)
    
    ---------------------------------------
    Knoxville
    -Where?                                -What kind of track is it?
       Knoxville, Iowa                            semi-banked, 1/2 mile
    
    -Your opinion?
       This is a long track, and the corners are wide too. Once you are off the
       straightaways and entering turn 1 and 3, cut in to the inside line and
       you do not need to straighten your car out, just let the car slide across
       the track and punch the gas at turn 2 and 4.
    ---------------------------------------
    Las Vegas
    -Where?                                -What kind of track is it?
       Las Vegas, Nevada                          semi-banked, 1/2 mile
    
    -Your opinion?
       This is by far the hardest track for me to achieve on. To get a decent lap,
       stay high on the straightaways and cut in and STAY in the inside, don't use
       too much gas while going into turn 1 and 3, but use a lot of them coming off
       turn 2 and 4.
    ---------------------------------------
    Lernerville
    -Where?                                -What kind of track is it?
       Sarver, Pennsylvania                       semi-banked, 1/4 mile
    
    -Your opinion?
       Lernerville has smooth corners, I've had a difficult time getting a decent
       lap for this track, but while in in race, I tried mirroring the other
       driver's line and it helped. These drivers goes in the inside all corners
       and never drift up. Try not to use a lot of gas entering turn 1 and 3.
    ---------------------------------------
    Lowe's
    -Where?                                -What kind of track is it?
       Concord, North Carolina                    semi-banked, 4/10 mile
    
    -Your opinion?
       Lowe's corners are long and you have to simultaneously press and release
       the gas a couple time and try not to mess your turning on the corner, a
       nice, clean slide will bring you to the front.

    Rattler Valley
    -Win the championship under Medium difficulty in Arcade mode to unlock this
     track.
    
    -This 1 1/6 mile oval with two crossover loops is the longest, tightest and
     least forgiving track on which you'll race. Out in the middle of nowhere,
     with tunnels winding through the rock-face, this is definetly a track for
     the drivers rather than the spectators.
    
    -Your opinion?
       Wow! this track is really fun to race on, some of the turns are very
       sharp and you may lose your grip, try practicing a couple laps first
       until you get a good time.

    Silver Dollar
    -Where?                                -What kind of track is it?
       Chico, California                          high-banked, 1/4 mile
    
    -Your opinion?
       Very small track, tight corners. Try not to use too much gas while going
       in the corner and on the corner, straighten your car out to get to speed
       while exiting out of turn 2 and 4.
    ---------------------------------------
    Terre Haute
    -Where?                                -What kind of track is it?
       Terre Haute, Indiana                       semi-banked, 1/2 mile
      
    -Your opinion?
       This is a tough track to get a good lap on, the track is very flat and has
       no banking at all. I went in Arcade Mode and practiced on this track for a 
       while, figuring out a good line to get on. Get your car up to speed on the
       straightaways, release the gas and cut to the inside and about in the middle
       of turn 1 and turn 2, press the gas and go all the way close to the outside
       wall, try to avoid hitting the wall or it'll slow you down big time and do 
       the same for turn 3 and 4. If you go too fast or cut to the inside at the 
       wrong time, your back end of the car would probably hit the wall, unless
       you save the car.
    ---------------------------------------
    Williams Grove
    -Where?                                -What kind of track is it?
       Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania                semi-banked, 1/2 mile     
    
    -Your opinion?
       This is not one of my tracks to race on, I do not have a good line to
       exit out of the turn, and I keep hitting the straightaway outside wall.
       But, I managed to save my car on couple laps. Don't use too much gas going
       inside the corner, and as you exit out of the corner, don't speed up too
       much.
