    Intro
    =====
    I wrote this guide out of boredom.  If you don't know by now, it's for Need For
    Speed: Underground for the PS2.  I am, by no means, claiming to be an expert on
    this game.  Point in fact, I'm not even that great at it.  I'm doing this
    because I want to put something back out there after using this site for all my
    needs over the years.  Plus, if I can beat this game without breaking anything,
    so can everyone else in the world.

    ===============
    iii. Quick Race Mode
    ===============
    a. Circuit
    ----------
    "Multi-lap racing against three opponents"
    A circuit race is pretty much you driving in a circle (only it's not actually a
    circle).  One line serves as the start and finish line, and in this game you
    have to go around anywhere from 2-10 times depending on what you set.
    
    *General Strategy*
    If you're confident enough in your ability to stay in first the whole race, go
    ahead and use your Nitrous right at the beginning.  I, personally, wait until
    the last lap, near the finish.
    
    b. Sprint
    ---------
    "Race from point A to point B"
    The game description pretty much covers it.  There's three opponents, as usual,
    and you have to get from one part of the city to another before them.  
    Time-trials fall under this category of racing modes, only there's no opponents
    and you have a set amount of time to get from place to place.
    
    *General Strategy*
    Again, if you're confident, use your NOS right at the start.  At least this
    time you don't have to worry about staying in first for as long as in Circuit
    mode.
    
    c. Drag
    -------
    "Straight line, flat out racing"
    Time to see exactly how much muscle your car has.  Works like a Sprint race
    with a few changes.  It's a straight line, so you don't have to worry about
    steering, unless of course you need to get out of the way of a car, and then
    you just need to tap left or right.
    
    *General Strategy*
    I find it easier to get a perfect shift right off the bat if you use the right
    analog stick for the gas instead of the X button.  Then once the race starts,
    jam the stick forward.  For shifting throughout, watch the middle of the screen
    for traffic, and you should be able to see out of the corner of your eye the
    needle turn green.  With NOS, you can either use it to help you get to your
    next gear faster, or you can save it until after you hit your last gear.
    Either way works.
    
    d. Drift
    --------
    "Slide with style to score big points"
    If you like to power slide, this is your event.  You pretty much power slide
    around a course and the faster you go and the more angled you are, the more
    points you get.
    
    *General Strategy*
    It's kind of hard to give an actual strategy for drifting.  Try to chain your
    drifts together.  By that I mean when you're drifting one way, turn your car
    to drift the other way.  Try to get in the bonus zone, which is the stripes on
    the side of the road.  Don't hit the wall.  I'd rather come to a dead stop than
    hit the wall and lose a good amount of drift points.  Drifting was hard for me
    until I realized, "Hey, it's just driving as crappy as I can without hitting
    the wall."  Pretty much it.
    
    e. Lap Knockout
    ---------------
    "Last-place car on each lap is eliminated"
    Yeah.  I hate these.  It's the same thing as a circuit race, except for as
    above, "Last-place car on each lap is eliminated."  Three opponents. Four laps.
    You don't know how many times I've messed up ever so slightly on the last lap
    only to have the other guy pass me and cross the finish line and eliminate me
    causing me to have to do the entire race over again.
    
    *General Strategy*
    Same as circuits, only you can never be in last place long enough to let the
    other cars to cross the start/finish line.  Do what you have to do to stay in
    first, and it won't cause TOO much frustration.
    
    f. Free Run
    -----------
    "Learn the tracks and practice setting hot laps"
    Nothing much here, just a place where you can practice on the circuit courses
    that you've already unlocked.  Goes on as long as you want.  No opponents.
    
    *General Strategy*
    No strategy necessary.
    
    
    ====================
    iv. Underground Mode
    ====================
    Quick thing before you start getting into the walkthrough.  This is by no means
    a simple guide through the game.  It's more of a comprehensive walkthrough.
    That means I'll be listing exactly what I did while playing through.  This is
    specifically referring to visual upgrades.  If you pick anything different, it
    won't affect your game at all, except for maybe style point rewards and
    your reputation meter.  Now onto the guide...
    
    Race 000/111
    ------------
    -Race Type-<Circuit (2 Laps)>
    -Text-<None>
    -Tips-For your first race you're put in a car for a 2 lap circuit against
          three other people.  It's a pretty easy race.  Try and save your NOS
          until the last lap, and if you get in a bad collision, remember, you can
          press Select to reset your car position.
    -Rewards-You start with $10,000 and get to pick your first car.  Depending on
             what you pick, you may end up with some extra cash.  I'd suggest going
             with the Miata MX-5.  It's a good overall car, and I actually kept it
             as my car through the whole thing until I unlocked the Skyline, and
             did just fine with it.
    
    At this point I chose the Mazda Miata MX-5 as my car, leaving me with $500.  I
    went ahead and put the Snyper front bumper on, leaving me with no money.  I
    also painted my car black, which doesnt cost anything.  To the next race we go
    then.
    
    Race 001/111 - Jose's Got Your Back
    -----------------------------------
    -Race Type-<Circuit (2 Laps)>
    -Course-<Olympic Square>
    -Text-<Your first step towards earning some respect.  Beat Jose and two others
           in two laps at Olympic Square.>
    -Tips-Your first race in your new car.  Don't worry, it's not hard at all.  You
          could even do it on hard to net some extra cash.  Just do like you did in
          the last race, except this time you don't have any nitrous.
    -Cash-Easy: $375, Medium: $500, Hard: $625
    
    I did it on Medium, which gave me $500, so I went ahead and got the Snyper rear
    bumper.  Onto the next race.
    
    Race 002/111 - Last One There Is A Rotten Egg
    ---------------------------------------------
    -Race Type-<Sprint>
    -Course-<Liberty Gardens>
    -Text-<Race through the downtown core.  First one past the airport construction
           zone takes home the Bank.>
    -Tips-Ooooo!!  The first Sprint of the game!!  I like these.  Not any harder
          than what you've done so far, there's just no second lap in case you
          screw up.  Just concentrate on getting and staying in first and there
          won't be any problem.  Just be careful in that tunnel near the end.
    -Cash-Easy: $375, Medium: $500, Hard: $625
    
    Again, I did it on Medium getting me 500 cash.  Actually, until further notice,
    just go ahead and assume I do it all on Medium.  At this point, go ahead and
    buy one of the side skirts and a window tint, you should have enough.
    
    Race 003/111 - It's All About Style And Finesse
    -----------------------------------------------
    -Race Type-<Drift (4 Laps)>
    -Course-<Drift Track 1>
    -Text-<Wow the crowd with speed and style.  Put up big points to get mad props
           and big Bank.>
    -Tips-First drift event.  The tracks just a retangle so concentrate on getting
          your drifts at the turns and if you can, chain them together in between.
    -Cash-Easy: $375, Medium: $500, Hard: $625
    -Rewards-You should've unlocked Dirt Track 1 and gotten onto the Option Auto
             magazine cover.
    
    Go ahead and install one of the spoilers, and a neon.  Next...
    
    Race 004/111 - The Perfect Shift
    --------------------------------
    -Race Type-<Drag>
    -Course-<14th and Vine (R)>
    -Text-<Four cars, four lanes.  This is how drag races go down, Underground
           style.  Show Klutch you got skills!>
    -Tips-A new event, drag.  Easy, and straight-forward.  Literally.  Just try and
          get perfect shifts as much as you can.  Use the right analog stick if
          you're having trouble with it at the starting line.  There's no traffic
          yet either, so you don't have to worry about changing lanes.
    -Cash-Easy: $375, Medium: $500, Hard: $625
    -Rewards-You should've unlocked the Mitsubishi Lancer and the track you just
             raced on.
    
    Install a new hood and move on to the next race.
    
    Race 005/111 - Last Place Is A Bad Place To Be
    ----------------------------------------------
    -Race Type-<Lap Knockout (3 Laps)>
    -Course-<Olympic Square (R)>
    -Text-<The pressure's on!  Last man standing wins this Lap Knockout around
           Olumpic Square.>
    -Tips-Ugh.  I hate these.  Just like a circuit race, only you never want to be
          in last place.  Just try and get in first place and stay there for all
          three laps.  Your first real encounter with traffic comes here also.
          It's minimal so, not much to worry about, just keep an eye out for cars.
    -Cash-Easy: $375, Medium: $500, Hard: $625
    -Rewards-You should've unlocked the track you just raced on
    
    Buy a new set of rims, paint them if you like, and move on.
    
    Race 006/111 - Rookie Tournament
    --------------------------------
    -Race Type-<Circuit (3 Races, 2 Laps)>
    -Courses-<Olympic Square>
    -Text-<A bunch of cocky newbies say they can crush you in a three-race series
           downtown.  You gonna let 'em?>
    -Tips-It's just three circuit races, nothing new.  Only now you don't have to
          worry so much about getting first place.  Two firsts and a second will
          win it for you, and most of the time two seconds and a first will.  Just
          make sure you pay attention to the series points after each race.
    -Cash-Easy: $3750, Medium: $5000, Hard: $6250
    -Rewards-You should've unlocked the level 1 Engine/Exhaust, Drivetrain, and
             Tire performance upgrades.
    
    w00t!  Your first performance upgrades!  Go on and install them, you definitly
    should have enough money after that tournament.  After you install them, just
    move on to the next race.
    
    Race 007/111 - TJ's Time Trial
    ------------------------------
    -Race Type-<Time Trial (Sprint)>
    -Course-<To Liberty Gardens>
    -Text-<Get from the airport to the downtown core in 1:45.00 and see what TJ has
           in store for you!>
    -Tips-The base time is 1:45, so if you find yourself needing a significant
          extra amount of time, quit the race and pick Easy, you'll get ten extra
          Seconds.  Other than that, it's just a regular sprint race.  Nothing
          special.
    -Cash-Easy: $100, Medium: $125, Hard: $150
    -Rewards-You should've unlocked that track and a unique performance upgrade
             from TJ.
    
    I suggest picking the Engine/Exhaust package for your upgrade, it gives the
    biggest boost to a stat, and really, your car has more than enough handling for
    the speed you're putting out right now.  That's just my opinion though.  Onto
    the next race.
    
    Race 008/111 - Atlantica Challenge
    ----------------------------------
    -Race Type-<Circuit (3 Laps)>
    -Course-<Atlantica>
    -Text-<Show your stuff against three hot hatchbacks in a three-lap race through
           Atlantica.>
    -Tips-Regular circuit race, just with three laps, which means you have more
          time to correct a screw-up.  It also means you have more time TO screw
          up, so still, be careful.  Also, try and take the shortcut on the right
          in the construction zone.  It'll shave off a decent amount of time.
    -Cash-Easy: $525, Medium: $750, Hard: $900
    -Rewards-You should've unlocked the 2003 Ford Focus ZX3 and the track you just
             raced on.
    
    Nothing to do but move on to the next race.
    
    Race 009/111 - All Go, No Show!
    -------------------------------
    -Race Type-<Drag (3 Races)>
    -Courses-<14th and Vine (R)>
    -Text-<Winning once won't do.  Be the fastest in this tournament to bag the
           loot.>
    -Tips-Just put the tips together from drag and tournaments, and if you're
          feeling up to it, race on hard for an extra $1250.  Drag races,
          especially this early, are really easy.  Just remember to use the right
          analog stick for an easier perfect shift off the start.  This is your
          first encounter with traffic in Drag mode too.  Just tap left or right to
          get around them.
    -Cash-Easy: $3750, Medium: $5000, Hard: $6250
    -Rewards-You should've unlocked the level 1 E.C.U. & Fuel System, Turbo
             Packages, and Brake Kits performance upgrades, and the 14th & Vine
             Construction (R) Drag track.
    
    Your next batch of performance upgrades.  Go ahead and install them and go on
    to the next race.
    
    Race 010/111 - Olympic Knockout
    -------------------------------
    -Race Type-<Lap Knockout (3 Laps)>
    -Course-<Olympic Sqaure (R)>
    -Text-<Knock out your competition one at a time in this Lap Knockout at Olympic
           Square.>
    -Tips-A race you've done before, on a track you've raced on before.  Nothing
          new at all.  Just remember, last place is a bad place to be.  There's a
          bit more traffic than you've had to deal with so far, but there's not
          enough to be a big deal.  Keep an eye out is all.
    -Cash-Easy: $525, Medium: $750, Hard: $900
    
    Nothing else was unlocked so just go to the next race.
    
    Race 011/111 - Drop The Klutch!
    -------------------------------
    -Race Type-<Drag>
    -Course-<Highway 1>
    -Text-<Watch out for traffic in this drag down Highway 1.  Prove to Klutch
           you're no fluke!>
    -Tips-New course, nothing else.  Just do what you've been doing and there'll be
          no problem at all.  Just keep keeping an eye out for traffic.
    -Cash-Easy: $525, Medium: $750, Hard: $900
    -Rewards-You should've unlocked the track you just raced on.
    
    Nothing new, moving on...
    
    Race 012/111 - Cross-town Hustle
    --------------------------------
    -Race Type-<Sprint>
    -Course-<Broadway>
    -Text-<Get from Chinatown to the Atlantica condos in first place!>
    -Tips-A couple of sharp turns, that's all.  Make sure you slow down enough to
          get through the turn and slam on the acceleration half-way through the
          turn.
    -Cash-Easy: $525, Medium: $750, Hard: $900
    -Rewards-You should've just unlocked that track and the level 2 Decals visual
             upgrade.
    
    Go ahead and put some decals on your car if you want, they don't cost anything.
    They also don't increase your rep at all.  After you do what you do, go to the
    next race.
    
    Race 013/111 - Time To Get Dirt-y
    ---------------------------------
    -Race Type-<Drift (4 Laps)>
    -Course-<Drift Track 2>
    -Text-<Dirt doesn't like getting beat at drift racing.  Do you?>
    -Tips-New drift course, same drift concept.  Try and chain your drifts
          together, but if you can't, ignore the small turns and go for one big,
          long drift around the larger turns.  Also, try to keep your RPMs between
          6000 and 7000 in second gear.  I've found that to be the best speed for
          this track.
    -Cash-Easy: $525, Medium: $750, Hard: $900
    
    Nothing new was unlocked so just move on to the next race.
    
    Race 014/111 - Downtown Series
    ------------------------------
    -Race Type-<Circuit (4 Laps)>
    -Courses-<Inner City>
    -Text-<Pit your ride against three tuned-up front-drivers.  Win to add more
           Performance Upgrades to your shopping list!>
    -Tips-Three races, four laps apiece.  They're really starting to test your
          endurance now.  Just do what you've done, and be careful of the sharp
          turns after the long straightaways.   And practice caution around those
          pillars after the overpass.
    -Cash-Easy: $3750, Medium: $5000, Hard: $6250 (Here my game said 6205, but I
                                                   assume it was a typo and they
                                                   meant 6250)
    -Rewards-You should've unlocked the level 1 Weight Reduction Kits, Suspension
             Packages, and Nitrous Oxide performance upgrades, in addition to the
             Stadium circuit track and Atlantica (R) circuit track.
    
    More Performance Upgrades.  Install them, take them for a quick race or two to
    test them out, and move on to the next race.
    
    Race 015/111 - Jail Break
    -------------------------

    -Course-<Lock Up>
    -Text-<See if you can get to the city prison in 2:42.00.  It's just on the
           other end of the John Newton Tunnel.>
    -Tips-Just get there as fast as you can, the course isn't too difficult.  And
          there's a suprise waiting for you on the other side of the track.
    -Cash-Easy: $100, Medium: $125, Hard: $150
    -Rewards- You should've unlocked the magazine cover Autopress and a choice of
              three unique hoods from Samantha.
    
    Pick one of the hoods, look at the magazine cover, and go to the next race.
    
    Race 016/111 - Style Guide
    --------------------------
    -Race Type-<Circuit (2 Laps)>
    -Course-<Inner City (R)>
    -Text-<Jose just tuned his engine and really cranked it up a notch.  Good luck

    xii. Extra Tips
    ==============
    +Beating Underground mode will unlock all parts except for uniques.  But if you
     want to switch parts back and forth while you're playing Underground mode,
     doing every race on Medium difficulty will net you enough cash to do so.

    xiv. Frequently Asked Questions
    ================================
    Q: How can I get all the unique parts?
    
    A: You can't.  Seriously, not without using some sort of cheat device I
       suppose.
    
    Q: Do I get to keep T.J.'s performance upgrades after I finish Underground
       mode?
    
    A: Yes and no.  Yes, they stay on the car they stay on the car you beat it
       with, you can no longer customize that car, you can only use it for quick
       races.  And no, you can't put them on any other car.

    If you choose to e-mail me, be warned, I'll probably delete it, simply out of
    habit of not recognizing the address.  If you make the subject line something
    to do with the guide like: NFSU Guide Question, that'll decrease the chances of
    it getting deleted.  You can try and talk to me through AIM, but I'm hardly
    ever on it.  I'm usually on IRC though, on irc.criten.net in #tmd, so you can
    just private message me there.
