    prize.  Get ready to play stunt track challenge."
    
    So states the opening movie of Hot Wheels Stunt track challenge for the Xbox.
    While the PC and PS2 also have versions of this game, this guide will focus on  
    the XBOX version only. Mileage may vary with the other versions.
    
    Hot Wheel Stunt Track Challenge is game in which you can races and perform 
    stunt challenges using vehicles from Mattel's Hot Wheels line of toy cars.
    
    The game features supple for multiplayer, either through a system link with 
    multiple networked Xboxes, or versus mode on the same Xbox.  Both of these are 
    beyond the scope of this guide.
    
    The game claims to have 30 different hotwheels cars.  However, only 22 of 
    these are named, 16 of which can be used in races, the other 6 in stunt 
    challenges. The remain 8 are unnamed and only appear in the game breaks.

    After taking to the air after a jump, either flip or roll.  Level off before 
    you land.  A good landing will earn a boost bonus.
    
    When going around sharp corners, press the B button to enter a power slide to 
    avoid hitting the rails or falling off the track.  This also slows you down so 
    only use it when necessary.
    
    When using boost tap A to use up one pickup, or hold A for a longer burn.    
    The boost will end if you hit something so be careful.
    
    The bicycle manuever can be used to turn corners more easily.

    The first curve turns to the left, if you use a bicycle maneuver here you'll 
    have a chance to get a boost at the end of the turn on the left side of the 
    center after a checkpoint. 
    
    This is a good point to boost from if you're able to.  Avoid the debris and go 
    down the left side of the road adjusting your course slightly to get through 
    and s-curve just before some flames on the right side and a checkpoint. 
    
    Power slide around the next turn to the left and get the flames on the center 
    line at the end of the turn.

    finish line.  
    
    Go around two more times to complete the race.

    Description: Race against the other contestants.  Ride the Zip strips on the 
    outside of the half pipes.
    
    Strategy: Go straight from the start into a tunnel.  Turn left towards a jump.
    This is a good place to boost on later laps and you take the jump.  Do a stunt 
    as you jump under the gigantic spider to earn some boost.
    
    The track goes into a twisting half pipe.  Watch out for the bombs in the 
    lower portion of the halfpipe and stay off the red rumble strips.  Ride the 
    zip strip on the left around a turn to the right.  Try not to fly off the top 
    of the zip strip. (If you wait a bit before getting on the zip strip you can 
    grab some flames).  
    
    Cross over to the right side zip strip, ideally getting the flames from either 
    the bottom or the flames on the zip strip itself.  Ride the zip strip around a 
    turn to left.
    
    Cross to the left side zip strip and ride it around the turn to the right. (If 
    you wait until you halfway around the turn you can get some flames from the 
    bottom and ride the strip the rest of the way.)
    
    Take to the bottom of the half pipe between the red rumble strips on either 
    side.  This is a good spot to boots as you go into another jump.  Do a stunt 
    as you jump under the gigantic spider again to earn some more boost.
    
    The track after the jump turns left at a checkpoint, then turns right, and 
    then left again.  After the turns is a good spot to boost as you get the 
    flames in the center and cross the finish line.
    
    Complete two more laps to finish the race.  If you find yourself with extra 
    boost consider boosting will on the zip strips.

    either fork and follow it.  For the left fork you'll need to powerslide right, 
    powerslide left, and turn right to the merge point. (The turns on the right 
    fork go in the opposite directions.)
    
    The merge point is a good spot to boost from on later laps as into goes into a 
    jump.  Do a stunt for more boost as you land on a vertical zip strip.  
    
    The zip strip is also a good spot to boost from.  After a straight stretch, 
    power slide left, get the flames in the center if you can, and powerslide 
    right throug a short corkscrew.  Avoid the first set of bombs by going right, 
    and the second set of bombs by keeping to the middle of the corkscrew.
    
    Power slide left and then powerslide right after the corkscrew.  Get the 
    trigger in the center, if one of your opponents hasn't already done so, to 
    take the shortcut to the left, going between the bombs and powersliding left 
    to the merge point. (If the shortcut is closed you'll need to take the right 
    path and powerslide left to the merge point.)
    
    This merge point is also a good spot to boost from as you go up a jump.  Do a 
    stunt to earn more boost as you land on a vertical zip strip.  This zip strip 
    is a good spot to boost from as you go through a loop into a tunnel.
    
    Try to get some flames on the right before you powerslide to the left.  Use 
    boost to in the turn to recover faster.  Try to get the flame to the left at 
    the end on the turn.  You can boost here as you turn right to the finish line.

    Number of Laps: 3
    
    Description:  Race against the other contestants.  Go for the shortcuts, but 
    watch those bumps.
    
    Strategy:  Make a slight left after the opening straightaway.  Take the zip 
    strip on the left wall around the turn to the left. (There's a trigger on the 
    bottom here that opens a short cut, one of the other cars will open it on the 
    first lap, and you'll miss out of the zip strip if you go for it on subsequent 
    laps)
    
    If the shortcut to the left is open, go between the bombs onto the zip strip 
    inside and turn left to where it merges with the other path.  (If you take the 
    other path, do a power slide to the left to get to the merge point.)
    
    Turn left, powerslide right avoiding the rumble strips, and then powerslide 
    left avoiding more rumble strips.
    
    This is a good spot to boost in later laps as you go into a jump (boosted 
    vehicles may hit a trigger.)
    
    Go straight and powerslide to the right through a checkpoint.  If you or an 
    opponent bossted throught the trigger on the previous jump go straing along a 
    zip strip avoid the bombs.  Otherwise turn right and take the next left to 
    merge with the short cut.
    
    After a slight left go straight (ignore the flames on the longer right path) 
    and avoid the bombs.  Powerslide left as you enter the tunnel.
    
    This is a good spot to boost as you jump of the ramp and do a stunt to earn 
    boost.  Avoid the bombs and get the flames on this bumpy straightaway.
    
    Powerslide left and then powerslide right. This is a good spot to boost as you 
    make a slight left on the way to the finish line.
