I was inspired to write this FAQ by 'zoopsoul', who wrote a great walkthrough for Ratchet and Clank, on Playstation 2, so, thanks bud. This game is easy to pick up, and quite easy to get through, once you learn the secret to taking corners well. I hope to someday make this 'The brilliantly definitive guide to Lego Stunt Rally', but that is a hell of a long way off. Cheers, Chattyb =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= CONTACT ME =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Please feel free to email me about anything to do with this game or guide.

If I get something wrong, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org also please note: Cars will round corners by themselves- do not try and steer. Up arrow- accelerate Down arrow- brake Left arrow- drive in the left lane Right arrow- drive in the right lane Enter/Return- Car horn/ activate power up There are the controls for player one. If you want more controls, have a read of your manual. I just want to have a little rant. I don't see why people never read the game manual that comes with the game!!!!! Okay, I got that out of my system. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= The Characters =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= THE VILLAINS Baron Flambo- The most evil, scheming little devil on the planet. Although he is not the final boss, he is mean competition and will beat any challenger who comes into his desert lair. Glacia- Glacia is the Ice champion and you will face her in your quest for success later on. She is far from a fair player and will do anything to win. She enjoys Skiing, Tobogganing, Ice skating, and tucking in to a nice cold bowl of vanilla Ice cream. Snake- Once a soldier, this jungle brute is known for causing trouble, after being kicked out of the army. He now lives deep in the steamy jungle with lizards and frogs. He meets them then eats them! Excuse the pun, I needed to put that in. Radium- The king of the city world. He was once a part of the LEGO Rock raiders team, but was expelled for doing incorrect pollution experiments. Now he says he must wear a helmet on to contain his own radioactivity, or so he says. People think that it is just to make his voice sound deeper. THE HEROES You can play as any one of these four characters. Chip- Chip is a laid back, easy going speedster who finds it hard to concentrate. Barney- Barney is the smart-arse kid on the block. He left school at the age of five to find something "more challenging". Lucky- The only chick in the group, but she is a strong competitor in her ways of fair play. Wrench- Personally, he looks like a bit of a street beggar in bright clothes. He can tower over you but he is really a big softie. THE OTHER ONES These are the racers you have to beat to get to the bosses. Sid Vacant- A boy racer with nothing on his mind but speed, nitrous oxide and dodging cops when necessary. Brad Speedo- An arrogant American speedster and a hometown hero. He is a stunt man by trade, but has trouble finding the brake pedal. Sandy Surf- A hippy beach chick that spends more time at a beach than the sand itself. She is an easygoing, always happy girl, who laughs way too much while racing. AARGH!!!!! Mate, she IS annoying. Megahurtz- A munted up robot who wants to one day be human. He races to win money for new body parts. So there you have it. Every racer in the Lego stunt rally world. Email me if you have any ideas on describing the characters. (See the contact me chapter) =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= CARS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= You can unlock all these cars in Adventure Mode. VROOOOM!!!!!! ROCKET KART Chip's little buggy that is quite fast but slides around way too much. My Rating: 4/10 DRAGSTER This is the car of choice for Barney. It is by far the fastest car you can get but it is VERY hard to control, even on straights. My Rating: 5/10 MUD MONSTER Lucky's favourite car. It is a hard-out four-wheel drive that is slow but brilliant around corners. My rating: 8/10 BOOST BUGGY The car of wrench, it is not very fast, but is quite easy to handle. My Rating: 6/10 V8 ELIMINATOR Sid Vacant's car, it is great for burning rubber and going 100 000 kph. It has crap handling, though. My Rating: 5.5/10 F1 SPEEDSTER A stunt car of Brad Speedo. It is both fast and good at handling. My Rating: 6.5/10 MOON BUGGY Crap. A car that suits Megahurtz: Mediocre. Awful speed and handling. My Rating: 2/10 BEACH BUGGY Sandy Surf drives wild in this car. Good handling and speed. My rating: 6/10 RAD TRUCK Radium's fast vehicle, it is first off the line and had great cornering. However, I take off a mark for the name- Rad Truck? Come on, guys. My Rating: 7/10 JEEP Snake's jungle buggy is great for slippery surfaces and it can accelerate well too. My Rating: 7/10 ICE MONSTER Glacia's Monster Truck is faster than the Mud Monster while keeping its cornering intact. This is the BEST car!!!!! My Rating: 10/10 HOT ROD The car of Baron Flambo, the car is hard out on speed, but weak with corners. My rating: 7.5/10 X CAR Mr X drives this. The manual says this is the best car, but the Ice monster could beat it by a whisker. My Rating: 9/10 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= =Championship walkthrough= =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= This is the format I will use for the walkthrough: Race: The race number in the championship. Environment: This will be City, Ice, Jungle or Desert. Recommended Car: The car that I recommend for this race. This may be disputed so please email me if you have a better idea. Opponents: The racers you will race against. These can't be changed. Racing: Shows the places in the track to watch out for. Prize(s): As well as unlocking the next track, you will probably get a car or a construction piece- like the loop-the-loop. !NOTE! When I say brake, I usually mean brake slightly to gain control or take a turn better. Right folks, Let's get a-racing! Race: 1 Environment: City Recommended car: Boost Buggy Opponent: Megahurtz Racing: 1. Brake at the third corner. 2. Brake at Hairpin, just after above turn. 3. Once you take the boost-jump near the end of the short lap, brake slightly once you land so you do not miss the corner. Prize(s): Moon Buggy (Megahurtz's ride) Race: 2 Environment: City Recommended car: Mud Monster Opponents: Sandy Surf & Megahurtz Racing: 1. Brake before the speed ramp- it is after a corner so keep control. Brake at the hairpin turn straight after the boost ramp. Prize: Loop-the-loop stunt piece & the Beach Buggy (Sandy Surf's ride) =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= VICTORY DANCES =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Not yet started. This section will be full of the dance moves that each character does after winning a race. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= GENERAL HINTS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= These hints will make racing a lot easier. Email me if you have any hints. BRAKING When rounding tight corners or hair pins, lightly brake and you won't go spinning off the track too much. CHANGING LANES Only Change lanes when the track makes you or if you are overtaking another racer. However, sometimes you need to to get power-ups. POWER UPS Use power ups ASAP- if you die you will have them no longer. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= RATE MY GUIDE =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= This REALLY helps me with my guide writing.
