    I'd like to take some time to thank the people that have helped with this 
    guide. Firstly, I'd like to thank Sega for making the game, which brings back 
    fond childhood memories as I replay the game. The webmasters that host this FAQ 
    should get a bit of credit too I guess, as you wouldn't be reading this 
    otherwise. I'd also like to thank you, the reader, for choosing this guide, and 
    I hope I helped in some way. Like most of my FAQs, this one is read by roughly 
    two people per week. You can count yourself among the lucky few that have 
    stumbled across a true masterpiece! =D

    The Sega Master System had very few racing games, and this was one of them. 
    Even from a quick play through of the game, you will be able to tell quite 
    quickly why the game was a bargain price game, as there is not a lot to it, and 
    it is quite poor quality, even for its time. I'm sure you'd be able to have a 
    few hours fun with the game, even if it's making completely silly tracks in the 
    edit mode.

    The game is a one player game only (unfortunately).
    
    Left/right - steers the car in this direction.
    Down - change gears from Low to High.
    Up - change gears from High to Low.
    
    Button 1 - Brake.
    Button 2 - Accelerate.
    
    When editing a track in edit mode, button 1 will place the currently selected 
    piece, button 2 will remove the last placed piece.

    Although it is quite obvious, the following is a quick description of the 
    components of the game screen whilst driving.
    
    In the top left you'll see a bar which is made up of numerous small blocks. 
    This is your rev meter. When in low gear, I recommend changing gears to high if 
    this meter has any red blocks showing. I also recommend changing from high gear 
    to low if the car is accelerating slowly - generally when the blue bars are 
    around half way up the angled part.
    
    Below the rev meter is your current speed. This is fairly pointless, but if you 
    know the best speed to travel at to get around a corner, you may use this a 
    bit. I generally ignore it, but could probably get lap times a few seconds 
    quicker if I used it effectively.
    
    To the right of the speedometer is the time taken. You must keep the time 
    below, or equal to the time limit for each track to continue in the game.
    
    Just to the right of the time, you will see "Parts". For more information on 
    this, see section 7.2.
    
    To the right of the parts you will see two indicators: one marked with an "L" 
    above one marked with an "H". It doesn't take a genius to figure this out; 
    these show if you are in Low (L) or High (H) gear.
    
    To the far right is a map of the track. This is probably the feature you'll use 
    the most of the objects on screen, it lets you know in advance what direction 
    the next bend will be, and where you are exactly on the track. Remember: All 
    tracks are CLOCKWISE.
    
    Before starting each race, you will also see three lights. These have a 
    sequence of red, red, light blue. Once the light blue light fades, the time 
    begins. Obviously, hold down the accelerator when this happens.
    
    There's not really much else to add. You are the RED car, guess I should 
    mention that. Although there seems to only be three other computer controlled 
    cars ahead of you (blue), there are a lot more than that. Not sure where they 
    all come from to be honest, I guess they cheat and start before you show up.

       |   \_O__            6. General Hints and Strategies             __O_/  |
       |    o--o\                       (WGGHS)                        /o--o   |
       |                                                                       |
        =======================================================================
    
    
    There's not really a lot to help you with, but I'll try to find a few things. 
    I've never used the brake in this game; I find it is quite useless. To slow 
    down, simply release the accelerator, which you will end up doing for most 
    corners.
    
    Opposition cars will either be on the left hand side of the track, or the 
    right. They can also switch sides, and if they do, will only switch once. If 
    you are not going at full speed, you will have time to change sides if a car 
    suddenly switches sides in front of you. It's better to take an extra second or 
    two by going slightly below full speed, than to waste around ten seconds by 
    crashing.
    
    This sounds silly, but try to stay on the track. The edge of the track (ripple 
    strip) will slow you down a LOT, and there are also advertising signs at the 
    side of the track, which you should obviously avoid.

    On the main menu, you will see two options: "Start" and "Edit". This section 
    covers the main section of the game - Start. You will be able to race on any of 
    twelve tracks in various locations around the world, and must beat a set time 
    for one lap of your chosen track. Fail to do so, and you will lose any 
    accumulated points. Your best lap times will stay until you turn of the console 
    however.

    To choose a track, press up and down to cycle through them. I have included 
    here a map of each track, so you can memorise them easier, as well as times 
    needed to get various points. I have also made a guess as to where in the world 
    each track is. As it is not mentioned in either the game or the manual, these 
    guesses may be very wrong, and you may think something completely different. As 
    a quick reminder, remember that all tracks are raced in a clockwise direction. 
    The start/finish line on the tracks is shown by OOOO symbols on the following 
    maps.

                      7.2. Spending Points                     (WGSPP)
                     _________________________________________________
    
    
    Once you have accumulated at least 100 points by beating the time limits on 
    various tracks, you may spend these on upgrades to power up your car. Each part 
    you buy will last for one race only. You may buy and use multiple parts for any 
    race, if you have enough points.
    
    Available parts, and the points they cost to buy are as follows:
    
    "ACCELERATOR": 100 Points.
    "HANDLING": 150 Points.
    "ENGIN": 200 Points.
    
    If you have these parts equipped, the following will appear under the word 
    "PARTS" on the game screen:
    
    With the "ACCELERATOR" equipped, you will see "ACCELE".
    With the "HANDLING" equipped, you will see "HANDLE".
    With the "ENGIN" equipped, you will see "SPEED".
    
    Getting enough points to purchase these parts is probably the hardest part. 
    Find a track where you can beat the time limit easily (many people use track 
    1), then race it repeatedly. Once you have enough points for the desired 
    part/s, you may go ahead and buy them.
    
    From experience, I have found that the accelerator part is by far the best 
    value. This makes accelerating (and decelerating) much faster, and will get you 
    to top speed around three times as fast as normal. Handling is pretty much 
    useless, and there is no way it is worth spending 150 points on. It makes the 
    car slide less in corners, and may save you around one second per lap. Engin 
    (it should have a second E - learn to spell, people at Sega!), increases your 
    top speed by a significant amount. Whether it is worth 200 points is up to you, 
    I don't buy it very often. I recommend purchasing this along with the 
    accelerator package to get better value.
    
    How you spend points is up to you. As the maximum amount of points you can get 
    from any race is 200, if you buy more than one part at once, you WILL lose 
    points overall. If you are going for the best possible time though, buying 
    multiple parts is worth it. Be warned though that getting the points back again 
    may take quite a few races.

        =======================================================================
    
    
    Edit mode enables you to create your own tracks! You must include the straight 
    that is already given to you on screen, and apart from that, you may use up to 
    127 parts to complete the track. The track must start at the right hand end of 
    the straight, and end at the left hand end. You will not be able to race on the 
    track until you meet these criteria.
    
    Why only 127 pieces? Seems like a weird number doesn't it? Well it's all 
    because... (CUT! I could ramble on and on for pages here about some mythical 
    reason why they chose 127 as the limit, which would be complete lies. I won't 
    bore you, but the real reason is to do with memory restrictions.)
    
    Once you have made a complete track, you will be given an option to race on it. 
    Press button 1 to race, or button 2 to change your track. After completing a 
    lap of your track, press button 1 to race on it again (good for challenging a 
    friend or two), or button 2 to quit. There is no way to save your track, unless 
    you are using an emulator.
    
    I'll let you explore how to use this feature completely. It's very simple to 
    use, and can be quite fun seeing some of your weird ideas for a track come to 
    life. You can add as many loops as you want, even crossing other parts of the 
    track (although it won't cross when you are racing, it just looks like it on 
    the map). As long as the two ends join, and you use 127 or less pieces, 
    anything goes.

    As this is the initial release, obviously, I haven't been asked any questions 
    yet. If you need more help, send me an email, and I'll happily respond!
    
    Q: What is your favourite track?
    A: Of the main twelve, probably track 5. Not sure why though. Of self made 
    tracks, I like any with long straight sections, rather than windy tracks.
    
    Q: Can't you just get 450 points, then make a save state, allowing you to buy 
    all three upgrades whenever you want if using an emulator?
    A: Yes. I do this to try to beat my best times for various tracks. I didn't 
    include it in the main part of the FAQ as a lot of people using the guide may 
    still be playing the original game on the original system. It's a good idea if 
    you are playing on a ROM though.
    
    Q: Where did you get your copy of the ROM? Can you send me a copy?
    A: Don't remember, and no. Using a ROM is illegal without purchasing the game, 
    and I have no proof you have the original game. I do have it as well =D
    
    Q: Any way to drive a different coloured car?
    A: Not that I know of. Maybe you can do it with a game genie or similar device 
    (not sure if they even made these for the SMS). Anyway, red cars go the 
    fastest!
    
    Q: Is it possible to do more than one lap of a track, to race counter clockwise 
    or to go in reverse?
    A: No to all three.

    If I were you, I'd avoid this game, especially if you are considering paying 
    money for it. It's not worth it. If the game had any form of competitive 
    multiplayer, it'd be MUCH better. As far as I know, this is one of the earliest 
    games with a track editor though, so you may like to consider trying it just 
    for that feature. You can still get a few hours game play out of the game, but 
    overall, I'd get any of the other racing games for the system ahead of this 
    one.

    myself.
