    This one can be found without every entering a mission. It's in 
    the Test Arena! Once you enter the arena destroy one of the 
    drones and look up at the center of the ceiling. You will see a 
    panel there that can be blasted away. Boost to the upper level, 
    blast it, go up and get the part, come back down and destroy the 
    other drone. If you don't not have sufficient boost power then 
    you can use the "Boost Override" trick to get it.  Just press 
    L2+R2+R3 at the same time and you will have unlimited energy for 
    a limited amount of time.  Now go and get the part and complete 
    the arena.  That's it! One parts down, eleven more to go.

    In this mission you can just about skip destroying any of the 
    security drones, you will take some AP damage, but you won't lose 
    on the ammo cost. What's important is that you use a head that 
    has a high hacking rating. This way you can get into the doors to 
    get the part. You want to make your way over to the room with two 
    doors, one with a lock straight ahead of you, and a unlocked door 
    to your left. Go through the left door and into the room at the 
    end of the tunnel. You will see a bunch of crates on the floor,

    in the area of the radars. You can run through the inside of the base 
    without fighting and take minimal AP damage. In the last area you 
    can destroy a few radars and almost all of the enemies from within
