1. INTRODUCTION

!! Use CTRL + F to find your character, the list in out of order !!

This list of character balance changes was taken from GameCombos
(http://www.gamecombos.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=12444). I 
thought I'd
post it here to give it more exposure since this game is going to be released 
on Xbox soon.

"Special thanks to Tarothin for doing 99.8% of the work in translating (hey, 
I get .2% for asking him to do it!!!). The changes are from the official 
softbank #R guide. Anyway, be sure to thank Tarothin for his hard work... and 
of course, my *cough* hard work *cough* too."
