------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi everyone! I looked on GameFaqs and noticed that there was no 
FAQ/Walkthrough for this game, so I decided to make one.  It will pretty
much be a bare-boned walkthrough that will just cover what you need to do
in order to get 100% complete in this game.  I will also list what cars
you can win/buy.  There is a LOT to do in this game and hopefully this
walkthrough will help sort through everything.  Anyways, if anyone has any 
suggestions or feedback, look in the contact section for how to contact me.

This game is, in my opinion, almost up to par with Gran Turismo 3. There are 
some factors that are worse then GT3 and some that are better.  I won't delve 
into it much, I will leave it up to you to form your own opinions of the game.

I would like to thank Namco for making such a fine racing game and GameFAQs 
for posting this walkthrough.  I hope this will help you!  

Now, on with the Walkthrough!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                            3.  Racing Life

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is the main story mode for this game.  If you are new to this game,
I recommend going into Arcade Mode or Time Trial Mode first, to get the
feel for the game.  When you are ready, I suggest doing the Racing Life Mode
first. When I wrote this walkthrough, the difficulty was always set to EASY,
so some stuff might be a little different in higher difficulties.  Also, any
cars that I recommend will be the ones that I used and won with.  If you like
any other cars better, feel free to use them.

                             Chapter ONE
                             -----------

    Some cutscenes will play in which the main character, Rena Hayami, is
driving an ambulance for a badly injured race car driver.  After showing
the manager of the race car driver's team some nice moves on the road, Rena 
be offered a job by the manager to take the place of the injured driver.  You 
will then be thrown into your first race:
