    /===================\
     | 3. Introduction |
    \===================/
    
    Welcome to my FAQ on Ford MUSTANG: The Legend Lives.  This is my first FAQ for
    a driving/racing game, my third for the Playstation 2, and my fifth FAQ in
    general.  I've been out of the FAQ writing game for quite some time AGAIN since
    I go to both school and work full time.  So I figured I'd get my feet wet again
    by writing an FAQ for this game.  So let's get started.
    
    
    /===============\
     | 4. Controls |

    Multiplayer (which holds the Quick Race and Catch UP Race Modes), and Options.
    Each Game Mode is broken down into more detail under it's respected section.
    To jump ahead, use CTRL-F and search for Career, Arcade, Challenge, and
    Multiplayer.
    
    
    /=========================\
     | 6. Driving With Style |
    \=========================/
    
    In Ford MUSTANG, performing different techniques gets you "Style Points".
    These Style Points are awarded for every successful technique you execute over
    the course of the game.  It is also an important factor in you obtaining locked
    Mustangs.  The more Style Points you earn through racing, the more Mustangs
    you obtain.
    
    "But how do I earn Style Points?" you might ask.  Braking, sliding your car,
    and the way you enter and exit turns all count towards how you obtain Style
    Points.  Below is a list of the types of techniques that help you get Style
    Points.  Be aware that if you are racking up points and hit something (a wall,
    a car, etc.), any points you were racking up will be lost.
    
    
    - Power Slide: Swing the back of the car out by tapping the gas while entering
      or in a turn.
    
    - E-Brake Drift: Swing the back of the car out using the emergency brake while
      entering a turn.
    
    - Braking Drift: Swing the back of the car out using the regular brake while
      entering a turn.
    
    - Jump Drift: Swing the back of the car out by using a curb to throw traction
      off some of the wheels.
    
    - Kansei Drift: Enter a corner at full speed and ease off the gas.
    
    - Feint: Turn the car one way and suddenly turn the other.  Breaks traction off
      some of the wheels.
    
    - Swaying: Long drifting motions that goes from one side and then the other.
    
    - Big Air: Get airborne by gaining speed and hitting a hill.
    
    - Two Wheels: Have the car on two wheels.
    
    - Drafting: Use the slipstream of another car to gain speed and pass them.
    
    - Near Miss: Zoom pass a car without hitting it.
    
    - Lap Leader: Be in first place at the end of a lap.
    
    - Place Gain: Pass one of your opponents and take his position.
    
    - Clean Lap: Complete a lap with no major crashes.
    
    
    The best way to rack up points is to combine multiple techniques and execute
    them for long periods of time.  The longer you execute certain techniques, the
    more Style Points you can earn (mainly seen with Power Slide and Braking Drift)
    .  Some techniques are "locked in", meaning that the points you earn are
    constant.  Drafting, Near Miss, Lap Leader, Place Gain, and Clean Lap are
    locked in Style Point Techniques and will never change.
    
    
    /=====================\
     | 7. The Game Modes |
    \=====================/
    
    As stated earlier, the Game Modes are found both Single Player (which consists
    of Career Mode, Arcade Mode, and Challenge Mode) and Multiplayer (which
    consists of Quick Race and Catch Up Race).  Each mode is broken down below.
    
    *-----------------*
    | 7A. Career Mode |
    *-----------------*
    
    Career Mode.  Ever racing game has one.  It is in this mode where you
    accumulate points to move on to bigger races.  It is one of two areas where you
    will be spending most of your time since some of the Mustangs can only be
    unlocked in Career Mode.  Race in seven different cities on different routes
    to become Number 1 on each track.
    
    *------------*
    | 7B. Arcade |
    *------------*
    
    Arcade Mode is where you go for immediate action.  Choose from Quick Race,
    Time Attack, or Eliminator.  Quick Race is where you go to race on tracks you
    unlocked in Career Mode.  Time Attack is where you are in a race against time
    to reach checkpoints and move on to other races.  Eliminator is where you are
    racing against 3 computer controlled cars and for each car that comes in last,
    it is eliminated from the race.
    
    *--------------------*
    | 7C. Challenge Mode |
    *--------------------*
    
    Challenge Mode is where you will spend most of your time.  It is one of the two
    areas where you will be spending your time since some of the Mustangs can only
    be unlocked in Challenge Mode.  It consists of 2 Events: Time Trial and Slalom.
    In Time Trial, you are placed in a pre-selected car and must complete three
    laps in a certain timeframe.  In Slalom, you are placed in a pre-selected car
    and must navigate a series of gates.  You must achieve a Gate Goal in order
    to move on to the next Slalom.  Pass through the gates to achieve the Gate Goal
    .  If you fail to collect the required number of gates in the allotted
    timeframe, you must start all over.
    
    *-----------------*
    | 7D. Multiplayer |
    *-----------------*
    
    Multiplayer is the mode where you can race against a friend.  The two modes
    here are Quick Race and Catch Up Race.  The Quick Race in Multiplayer is the
    same as the Quick Race in Single Player.  Catch Up Race is a race where you
    must try and outdistance your opponent by 100 meters for 10 seconds.  One
    player is given a head start and for each time one player cannot close the
    gap on their opponent and 10 seconds expires, the driver in the lead gets a
    point and switches positions with the opponent who lost.  The losing player
    then gets a head start and the challenge continues.  The first to 10 points
    wins.
    
    
    /=================================\
     | 8. Challenge Mode Walkthrough |
    \=================================/
    
    Here is the area in which I will break down what you have to do to successfully
    complete Challenge Mode.  This guide assumes you have just started a new
    profile and are following this guide in order.  If you are not, please use
    CTRL-F to move on to a section listed below.
    
    *------------*
    | 8A. Slalom |
    *------------*
    
    There are 6 Slalom sections each consisting of 3 parts: Easy, Medium, and Hard.
    The higher the difficulty, the higher the Gate Goal needed to continue.
    Remember that time is against you in the Slalom Challenges and you will see
    that time can quickly disappear as you attempt to pass through more and more
    gates so pay attention.  Also, if you miss too many gates or fail to cross the
    finish line after reaching the Gate Goal, the game will automatically end the
    Slalom and you will have to start over.  Note: your HUD should be on at all
    times from here on out...you'll need it.
    
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++
    | Slalom 1. Long Beach |
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Mustang => '70 Boss 302
    Track Route => Standard
    Length => 1.50 Miles
    Easy Difficulty => 50/66 Gates
    Medium Difficulty => 55/66 Gates
    Hard Difficulty => 60/66 Gates
    Record => 00:37:37
    Overall Slalom Difficulty => 2/5
    
    Track Overiew:
    "Welcome to Long Beach California.  This custom built circuit was designed to
    push the Mustang to it's limits...and beyond.  Get ready for the race of your
    life."
    
    Long Beach is a pretty simple track consisting of few turns.  You can literally
    push the Mustang to high speeds and clear the gates with little or no
    difficulty.  As the difficulty increases, you might want to slow up a little
    bit coming out of turns, since some of the gates that are crucial for you to
    pass the Gate Goals appear at the entrance and exit of the turns.  Furthermore,
    your room for error drops dramatically once you reach the Hard difficulty.
    
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++
    | Slalom 2. Chicago |
    +++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Mustang => '02 SVT 10th Anniv. Cobra
    Track Route => Standard
    Length => 1.50 Miles
    Easy Difficulty => 66/87 Gates
    Medium Difficulty => 73/87 Gates
    Hard Difficulty => 80/87 Gates
    Record => 00:55:39
    Overall Slalom Difficulty => 3/5
    
    Track Overview:
    "Welcome to Chicago, racing in the heart of the Windy City.  With it's long
    straights and tight corners, this is a big challenge in a big city."
    
    Chicago is your first real challenge in the Slalom challenges.  With the
    Mustang getting up to very high speeds, it is hard to navigate the corners and
    clear the gates.  However, the higher the difficulty gets, the more on point
    with your driving you are going to have to be.  Your best bet in Chicago is to
    pratcically go through every gate on the first 2 laps of each difficulty and
    take it easy on the last one.  Room for error drops big time on Hard, so pay
    attention.
    
    
    +++++++++++++++++++
    | Slalom 3. Miami |
    +++++++++++++++++++
    
    Mustang => '87 LX Coupe 5.0L
    Track Route => Standard
    Length => 1.50 Miles
    Easy Difficulty => 85/114 Gates
    Medium Difficulty => 95/114 Gates
    Hard Difficulty => 100/114 Gates
    Record => 01:08:01
    Overall Slalom Difficulty => 4/5
    
    Track Overview:
    "So welcome to Miami Beach and high speed racing in the Florida sun. 
    You'll be racing around short hairpins and long, sweeping straights. 
    THIS is life in the fastlane."
    
    Miami presents a great challenge for you.  You are racing to clear gates in a
    pretty bad Mustang.  The speed isn't the greatest nor is the handling.  The
    circuit itself is a beast because you can get the Mustang up quickly and miss
    gates in bunches.  Although the room for error is a little more lenient than
    your previous 2 tracks (14 gates, more than the room for error of Chicago and
    Long Beach COMBINED on the Hard Difficulty which is 13), your key concern in
    Miami will be the time.  My advice to you on the Hard Difficulty is to reach
    the Gate Goal as quickly as possible and ignore the remaining gates.  Doing
    this will put more emphasis on you cutting corners and beating the clock than
    it is solidifying the gates.
    
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++
    | Slalom 4. New Orleans |
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Mustang => '05 GT Coupe
    Track Route => Standard
    Length => 1.50 Miles
    Easy Difficulty => 110/144 Gates
    Medium Difficulty => 120/144 Gates
    Hard Difficulty => 130/144 Gates
    Record => 00:56:09
    Overall Slalom Difficulty => 3/5
    
    Track Overview:
    "Time to visit New Orleans for some serious racing.  And you can expect high
    speed action all the way in the Mardi Gras city.  It's a warm, humid night, so
    get ready for some hot racing action."
    
    While New Orleans does not present a huge challenge as Miami, the problem is
    the location of most of the gates.  New Orleans is bright and flashy and turns
    come suddenly.  Luckily, the room for error is a bit lenient (14 gates on the
    hardest difficulty).  Watch the turns and use ease off of the gas, and you
    should be fine.
    
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    | Slalom 5. New York City |
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Mustang => '68 428 Cobra Jet
    Track Route => Standard
    Length => 1.50 Miles
    Easy Difficulty => 80/105
    Medium Difficulty => 85/105
    Hard Difficulty => 98/105
    Record => 00:55:17
    Overall Slalom Difficulty => 2/5
    
    Track Overview:
    "Welcome to New York, racing past Central Park and along Broadway.  The circuit
    is fast with tight 90 degree turns and fast straights.  This is one fast paced
    city."
    
    New York isn't really a challenge in Slalom Mode.  However, the only area of
    concern comes around the middle to end of the circuit, where the gates narrow
    and are in odd locations.  The turns come quickly and the gates are out there
    if you exit a turn wrong.  You'll be sure to rack up some Style Points in NYC
    due to the turns and don't really worry about the gates.  Your room for error
    has gotten a bit bigger on the Hard Difficulty (17 gates).
    
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    | Slalom 6. San Francisco |
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Mustang => GT-R Concept
    Track Route => Standard
    Length => 1.50 Miles
    Easy Difficulty => 120/158
    Medium Difficulty => 135/158
    Hard Difficulty => 150/158
    Record => 00:57:39
    Overall Slalom Difficulty => 5/5
    
    Track Overview:
    "Welcome to San Francisco, racing in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge.
    Watch for fast straights, downhill racing, and tight corners."
    
    San Francisco is a racer's dream circuit...but of course, you are participating
    in a slalom.  And to make matters worse, you are in the most powerful Mustang
    in the game, the GT-R Concept.  This is a blessing and a curse.  A blessing
    because your car can move any way you want it to in a moment's notice.  A curse
    because the speed of the car may cost you gates if you don't exit turns
    properly.  The hills of San Francisco will present a challenge because gates
    rest on the hill, so passing through all of them may pose a challenge.  You may
    even knock over all the gates in a given area due to the speed of the Mustang.
    Watch you speed on the straights because the straights quickly become corners
    in San Francisco and gatea re in weird locations.  Room for error gets tight
    again on the Hard Difficulty (8 gates), so near-flawless driving is vital to
    success and clearing Slalom Mode.
    
    Congratulations.  You have just cleared the Slalom Challenges.  On to the Time
    Trials.
    
    
    *----------------*
    | 8B. Time Trial |
    *----------------*
    
    There are 6 circuits to race on in Time Trial.  In order to clear a circuit,
    you must beat the time indicated at the beginning of the Time Trial.  Your cars
    have been pre-determined and can play a huge factor in you either crushing the
    Time to Beat or barely getting by.  Make sure your HUD is on...
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    | Time 1. San Francisco (Alternate) |
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Mustang => '68 Mustang GT/CS
    Route => Alternate
    Time to Beat => 3:10
    Length => 2.03 Miles
    Record => ?   Note: I forgot to make a note on the record time for this circuit
    Overall Time Trial Difficulty => 2/5
    
    Although the track overview is the same, some cities have alternate route to
    race on.  San Francisco is one of them.  The main difference here is that there
    is a turn taken out that leads right into the monster hill.  Use your speed
    and Power Slide Technique to rack up huge points and cut some time.
    
    
    +++++++++++++++++++
    | Time 2. Chicago |
    +++++++++++++++++++
    
    Mustang => '04 Mustang GT 40th Anniv.
    Route => Standard
    Time to Beat => 3:05
    Length => 2.29 Miles
    Record => 00:55:39
    Overall Time Trial Difficulty => 3/5
    
    You've raced enough in Chicago during the Slaloms to know what to look out for.
    Watch the turns and try to find some areas where you can take some time off of
    your run (maybe those sidewalks will come in handy...).
    
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++
    | Time 3. Los Angeles |
    +++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Mustang => '71 Mustang Boss 351
    Route => Standard
    Time to Beat => 4:10
    Length => 2.97 Miles
    Record => 01:13:32
    Overall Time Trial Difficulty => 5/5
    
    Track Overview:
    "Welcome to Los Angeles.  You're racingf through Santa Monica and Downtown.  So
    get ready for high speed curves and long straights.  The Los Angeles track is
    the California dream made real."
    
    The California track is long and winding.  To make matters worse, you are in by
    far, one of the worst Mustangs in the game, the '71 Mustang Boss 351.  The
    handling is terrible and it's hard to get up in this Mustang.  Watch the
    corners and push it as hard as you can.  You will be cutting it very close in
    this Time Trial, usually clearing the finish line with barely a second left on
    the clock.
    
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    | Time 4. New York City (Alternate) |
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Mustang => '03 Mustang Mach 1
    Route => Alternate
    Time to Beat => 2:10
    Length => 1.65 Miles
    Record => 00:39:48
    Overall Time Trial Difficulty => 5/5
    
    New York City is another circuit that holds an alternate route.  This route is
    very fast paced.  Time is short and the room for error is practically none
    existent.  Near-flawless driving will be required.
    
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++
    | Time 5. New Orleans |
    +++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Mustang => Mustang 6.1L Cobra R Concept

    New Orleans is a beast of a track.  Fast straights quickly become hard turns
    and winding roads.  Another course where your room for error is marginal.
    Near-flawless execution will be required to move on.

    Miami is another fast-paced city.  Watch the turns and 90 degree turns and you
    should be fine.  Lap 3 will pose a threat if you haven't been driving
    effectively.  Room for error is a bit lenient, but not by much.
    
    Congratulations.  You have just cleared Time Trial.  On to Career Mode.
    
    
    /==============================\
     | 9. Career Mode Walkthrough |
    \==============================/
    
    Career Mode is where you will spend the rest of your time in Single Player Mode.
    At this point, you should have unlocked several MUSTANGS.  The rest can be
    found here in Career Mode.  Your Style Points will be accumalated big time in
    Career Mode.
    
    In order to advance, you need Position Points.  Position Points are earned by
    your final placement in each race.  1st Place nets your 500 points, 2nd Place
    nets you 250 points, 3rd Place nets you 100 points, and you get no points for
    coming in 4th Place.  Furthermore, if you finish a race in a position other
    than 1st, when you actually do come in 1st, you will receive the remainder of
    your points that equal out to 500.  So for example:
    
    You finish a race in 3rd Place, thus netting you 100 points.  You race the same
    race again and finish in 1st Place.  You will then receive 400 points, since
    you have already earned 100 points for coming in 3rd Place.
    
    In Career Mode, there really isn't a strategy.  If you have played other racing
    games (mainly Gran Turismo), you will know that the out-in-out strategy,
    drafting, and finding the right line (or best driving path for a circuit) are
    the only ways to win.
    
    The Out-In-Out Strategy consists of you entering a turn on the outside, going
    inside towards the apex of the turn, and exiting the turn on the outside.
    Professional race car drivers perform this action flawlessly.
    
    The Drafting Strategy consists of you following closely behind a car that is
    front of you.  Your speedometer will change color from white to yellow when you
    are successfully drafting a vehicle.  When you draft another car, you are
    driving behind the immediate space of the car in front of you.  This immediate
    space is better known as the "slipstream".  For all cars that are in the
    slipstream, wind resistance is lowered dramatically and gaining speed is
    guaranteed.  When you have enough momentum, break out of the slipstream and
    pass your opponent.
    
    Finding the Line consists of you finding the best path to drive on a given
    race course.  If you have played Gran Turismo 3, you know that there is a
    certain path you can follow on a course that will not only cut times on the
    course, but give you the best out-in-out points for turns.  Try to "see" the
    line as you drive on laps 1 and 2 of the circuits.
    
    With that said, here is the breakdown of the tracks in Amateur and Professional
    Mode.  The tracks change in Professional Mode in terms of direction but the
    track overviews remain the same throughout.  My personal choice to clear Career
    Mode: the Mustang GT Coupe Concept.  It's one of the few balanced cars in the
    game and probably the most powerful at the time you begin Career Mode.
    
    *-------------*
    | 9A. Amateur |
    *-------------*
    
    Amateur Career Mode is where you will be racing initially.  You must clear all
    of the circuits in Amateur Mode to continue to Professional Mode.

    You shouldn't see much of a challenge in Professional Mode.  Long Beach may
    have some difficulty, but not by much.  The only real difference is you will be
    racing in the other direction.

    At the end of Professional Career Mode, you should have 5500 Position Points
    and practically unlocked every Mustang in the game.  You may have to get more
    Style Points to get the entire collection, but more than likely, you have
    rounded out the Mustang Collection and completed the game.  Congratulations.
