Different Types of drivetrains:
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
4WD: 	(Four-wheel drive) These cars usually have the engine mounted
	in the front, but May also have the engine mounted near the
	center or rear of the car. The drivetrain moves all four wheels,
	hence the designation. 4WD cars generally provide great traction
	and control (most rally cars are 4WD for this reason). The added
	equipment weight for driving another two wheels, however, makes
	these cars heavier than most. They are also prone to severe
	understeer without proper technique.


FR:	Front engine, rear-wheel drive cars are usually prone to
        oversteer, and can cause some frustration. These types
        of cars usually have the fastest acceleration and top speeds
        out of all the types of cars. Their handling (see above) and
	wheelspin does offset this in many a technical race course.


FF: 	Front engine, front-wheel drive cars are usually the lightest
	and slowest of the cars. Having the weight of the engine over
	the wheels moving the car provides great traction and turning
	in short, twisty courses. This setup also reduces weight.
	However, weight transfer in acceleration to the rear of the car
	negates much of the power of the engine. The FF setup is
	generally good for rallying (for its stability) or small cars.

MR: 	Mid engine, rear-wheel drive cars encompass most of the pure
	"race" cars of the game. Situating the engine in front of the
	rear wheels provides excellent weight distribution. Also, the
	ability to change the areodynamics of the front of these
	vehicles also makes them the most streamlined in the game.
	Like FR cars, they are prone to oversteer, since the front
	wheels are steering while the rear wheels are pushing the car
	forward. Due to their skittish nature, MR cars are best suited
	for more experienced drivers.

RR:	Although rarely seen in the game, rear engine, rear-wheel
	cars do exist. They have many of the characteristics of MR
	cars, but the configuration of the engine directly over the
	rear wheels decreases wheelspin. Their less-than-stellar
	weight distribution, though, makes oversteer frequent
	without extreme care.

The following was created and thought up by Minty Fresh from the GameFAQs
Message Boards (the Gran Turismo 3 message board, to be specific):

I have been testing this car for around 5 hours...changing setting here and 
there...and I think I found the best and final setup (listed below). Purchase, 
match the setup, and I promise, it will perform like you won't believe. Even 
better than the 300,00 Cr. Impreza Rally Car!!

RALLY settings

Spring rate [F]7.0 [R]6.5 (lower setting, a little more body roll but better 
                           for those rally courses)
Ride Height [F]140 [R]140 (self explanatory)
Shock Bound [F]6 [R]7 (This shock setup helps make the car tighter out of turns
Shock Rebound [F]7 [F]8
Camber angle [F]4.0 [R]3.0 (More camber more traction)
Toe angle [F}0.0 [R]-0.5
Stabilizers [F]4 [R]5 (again I sacrificed more body roll for being stable on 
                        the rally courses)

Brake balance [F]10 [R]9 (A tad more in the front gives a little understeer, 
                          safer than oversteer and spinning out)

Limited slip Initial [F]8 [R]8 (the handling is improved out of turns with a 
                                lower setting)
Limited slip Accel [F]16 [R]35 (Not much need to have a high setting on the

Tuning this car was like tuning the Skyline, the car was so well balanced from 
the start it was a little tough to make sure I was making an improvement on it, 
I spent about 3-4 hours on this setup. I’ve included at the top the reasons 
for my settings I figured you will be able to get an Idea of why I did what 
I did, instead of me just giving you the numbers. This way the tuning will 
make more sense.

Suzuki Escudo (Over 500 MPH):
---------------------------------

From wszeto88, on the Gran Turismo 3 Message Board on Gamefaqs.com -

Here are the Escudo Pikes Peak 500+ mph setting the top speed I got was 579.2
mph Follow this and you will be on your way to 500+ mph in no time.

Here's what I did:
1. equip the highest turbine kit or na possible
2. decrease the spring rate to the smallest possible value for both front and
   rear
3. a. decrease ride height to smallest possible value for front and rear
   b. DRIVETRAIN

Front REAR
Lim-Slip In Tor.- 5 - 5
Lim-Slip Accel. - 5 - 5
Lim-Slip Decel. - 5 - 5

c. Toe angle and Chamber angle should be 0

4. a. set the gear ratios auto settings to the highest possible level
   b. set the gear ratios final gear to about 3,000
   c. set all gears to lowest value

5. a. decrease the front downforce to the smallest possible level
   b. increase the rear downforce to the largest possible value

6. set ASM to 0

7. set TCS to 0

8. set VCD to 10%

There you have it, a 500+ mph car! Make sure you turn the opposite way when
doing the Max Speed test, once around the track won't be long enough for the
speed to reach 500+ mph.

Have Fun!!

---------------------
Or another way:
---------------------

1. Get a car with over 1,000 HP
2. Equip the highest level NA or Turbo.
3. Decrease the spring rate for the front and back to the lowest value.
4. Decrease the ride height for the front and back to the lowest value.
5. Set the gear ratios auto setting to the highest level possible
6. Decrease the front downforce to the lowest value, and increase the rear 
   downforce to the highest value.
7. Put the ASM to 0.
8. put the TCS to 0.

Now go to the test course (preferably machine test) and watch what happens when 
you hit about 230 mph. And someone tell me what they think. It's pretty funny 
and cool.

I use the preset gear ratios depending on the course, so I change it all the 
time....but Im working on a more responsive setup with devent top end.

I bought all the best parts and all parts available for the Supra total cost 
$285,850 resulting in a highly responsive 10.899 0-400m car. The car is tuned 
to give a little oversteer when braking, traction is improved considerably, 
and steering is responsive, just remember this is a torque monster so drive 
it with class instead of a mad man. Now the limit is reliant on your tires 
not the setup.

The setup is made for all these parts so not having light weight stage 3 or 
the barake balance controller etc will probably result in different handling.

This is an example of a custom gear ratio, I have short second gear just to
get me to third and longer third and fourth, since those are the gears I stay 
in the most, also shifting from third to fourth is smooth and doesent upset 
the car if you in a turn. Shorter fifth and a long sixth for those straights
only hits 220 but most of the straights stop just before the rev limiter.

*Note the Skyline was such a well balanced car to begin with It took me a 
while to make an imprvement, usually it's an ovbious choice of what to change 
but this one took some time. I like a dash of oversteer when braking and like 
to omit any body roll thats apparent. This set up works for me the best, it's 
based on my driving style, I give up a little top end speed for traction and 
like to set my cars with a tight turn in. I like to set it up in a way that 
if you get off the gas your line tightens instead of major oversteer. My point, 
Minty has his set up for his style, I have mine set up for me, Feak has his set 
up for himself and so on. We all make them so it's best for our driving style.

|Transmission Settings: Increasing the Max. Speed Even Further|
 ―――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
  I've gotten E-mail from people asking me how to increase the max speed even
further after getting fully tuning-up their car, and after putting the gear
settings to their lowest because some cars seem to only be able to go up to 220
MPH or so. What I'm about to tell you will make the car's max speed exceed the
amount you think is the max possible.

Well, go to the Machine Test and choose 'Max Speed' to test your car's max
speed. Go to the Settings, go  to the Gears Settings, and put all of the gears
to their lowest and start the test. See your car's max speed and if you want to
increase it even further, quit and go back to the Settings. Push [Start] while
highlighting one of the gears to return it to its default settings, and change
the gears to their lowest settings again. Take the test again and the max speed
should have either increased or decreased.

Now quit and go back to the Settings once again. You see the option
all the way at the bottom of the menu with the gears? Well, select it
and move it to the right a few, then push X or O to accept. Then push
[Start] and it'll return to its default number. Go to the gears and make them
the lowest possible. Take the test again and the max speed should have
increased.

Note: Don't do this for all cars since the higher your max speed, the
      less acceleration you have. You can also only do this for the
      final gear afterwards.

    - Free Car Upgrades -
―――――――――――――――――――――――――――――
From IGN.com:

Here's a little trick you can do to save money on upgrading your cars. First,
you must have 2 memory cards. Save your game onto both MEMORY CARD #1 and
MEMORY CARD #2. Buy the car that you want and upgrade it as much as you can
(if you have the money, buy every single upgrade you can think of, including
every tire type). Now save the game onto only MEMORY CARD #2.

After you've finished saving the game, load the saved game data from the other
card, MEMORY CARD #1 (this should be the original save before you purchased
anything). Go to your Home and then the Trade section to Load Garage Data from
MEMORY CARD #2. Now you can buy the car that you spent hundreds of thousands
upgrading for its original sticker price.

TIP: You can use this at the beginning of the game to get an extra one or two
     upgrades for your very first car.

{                           How to Earn Fast Cash                              }
 ―――――――――――――――――――――――――\________________________/―――――――――――――――――――――――――――

At the Beginning:
-------------------
Just win the Sunday cup to get the Toyota Trueno (sell it if you already have
it), then race the first race of the Sunday Cup to earn cash over and over again,
then upgrade the Engine with a racing chip and engine modifications, get it
over 200 HP, then save up enough cash for a new transmission and a drivetrain
stuff (racing flywheel, Clutch/Triple Plate, Driveshaft/Carbon) and a
Lightweight/Stage 1 to boost acceleration, then adjust the transmission so that
you get slow acceleration but fast top speed (make the right-most bar on the
Gear Ratio screen, when you enter "settings" before a race, touch the top-right
corner of the box) and select "Level 35" on the Auto Setting in the Gear Ratio
screen, then enter the second race in the Turbo Challenge, and come in first place
(5,000 credits) or second place (2,500 credits) to win tons of cash. Repeat
until necessary. 

Or early on in the game, try to find a race that is only for your type of car, 
they usually pay 5,000 for a win, which is a small fortune in the amatuer 
league, and the other cars are just stock models, so minor tuning upgrades can 
give you a technical advantage... the Vitz championships earned me the money 
to buy a Lancer (HUGE huge huge upgrade)... the amatuer championship is a 10 
race series that pays 10K each for winning - but you need a pretty good car...

Th best thing to do...look for all of the Super Speedway tracks, but it's the 
first track in arcade mode. Those are the easiest to win, and the last one in 
the beginner mode, you win $10,000 and in the Amatuer, there is one that is 
$15,000 each time. Once you can win those, it's easy money :)


Even further along the line...
---------------------------------

Here's a tip from IGN.com:

The quickest way that we've found is to enter the Amateur League German Touring
Car Challenge. It's a five race series with only three laps per race, so it can
be completed in less than 20 minutes. You need to finish first in the first
four races, earning 10,000 credits per race, then save your game. Enter the
fifth and final race and simply quit out of it to end the series. If you
finished first in the first four races, you'll win the series, more prize money
(30,000 Cr.) and one of four random prize cars. If you get the Opel Astra
Touring Car, you can sell it for 245,000 credits, thus bringing your 20-minute
prize total to 315,000 credits. Doing this, you can net yourself about 900,000
credits per hour.


And more....
---------------

Another thing you can do to get quick cash is get a pretty fast car, then enter 
the GT World Championship, then race on the Super Speedway track, and win it 
for an easy $10,000 in under 3 minutes. You can make about $150,000 or more in 
an hour with this strategy.

Or get an I-B liscence and run the gran turismo dream car championships on the 
test track race, it's 25 g's a race. NO JOKE. Get a car that can go 220 or 230 
mph and you win that simple.


For those with patience...
-----------------------------

For those who can handle boredom, and have a fast car, and have an IA license,
do the Super Speedway Endurance, it takes an hour to finish, but you get
200,000 for it. Also, you can try another one (SSR11, Japan Endurance one)
and get 500,000 for that, I don't know how long it takes though....

If you have the nerve, you could always do an Endurance race. Most of them
offer rewards for first place in the range of 150,000 to 500,000 Cr. With a fast
car you can win easily (I did the Super Speedway 150 Miles with a Corvette Z06
which I upped to 800 HP, and the Seattle 100 Miles with a Panoz Esperante GTR-1
which I upped to 983 HP). This only works if you are about 10%+ in the game,
though. If you are just starting out, give your car some more horses and do the
World Cup in the Beginner League, which offer $10,000 Cr. a race.


And a super-cheap way to get cash...
--------------------------------------

Just go to the Super Speedway 150 in Beginner Mode, and get your fastest car,
and enter the race. Put a twisty-tie or a rubber band on both analog sticks
so the Left Stick is facing to the right, and the Right Stick is facing to the
left, and put a rubber band on the accelerate button (usually "X"), and just
let the car drive itself. Your car will ram into the walls and stuff, but
if you use a car that's very fast and has good acceleration, it shouldn't
matter, and since the other cars will pit in throughout the race and you won't,
you should win easily, getting the $200,000 and the sweet new car.

 02. - General Strategies -

€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€

• Power slide as much as you can on most turns in the game. To power slide,
  slow down a bit before the turn or chicane with the footbrake, then as
  you turn, hit the handbrake to make your car swing around the bend (make
  your car go into the proper direction first), then hit one of your brakes
  (handbrake is easier to use) while you are facing the direction you wish
  to be in (straight), and continue driving as normal.

• Whenever you are steering into a turn, and smoke begins to come from your
  tires, this is a sure-sign that your car is about to spin-out if a
  counter-steer isn't used soon. To counter this eventual spin-out, simply
  lay off the gas a bit, and counter-steer (steer into the opposite direction)
  to regain your grip on the road, and to avoid the spin-out easily.

• Sometimes (or a lot of the time), you can power-slide in Gran Turismo 3, 
  the racing engine is designed for it like in Gran Turismo 1 & 2. The cars 
  in Gran Turismo 3 can stick to the road sometimes, so power-sliding isn't 
  necessary some of the time.

• You don't have to power slide around each turn. Some turns are too tight
  to try to manuever around, so just brake very hard with the footbrake
  to come to an almost complete stop, then turn your car into the desired
  direction, and hit the gas to get moving again.

• Don't be too hard on the controls, since they are sort of touchy. The
  cars handle realisticly, so you will be spinning out after each turn
  if you really turn sharply or hit a wall at great speeds.

• Try not to hit the other car in a race, since you will bounce off of
  him/her, and slow yourself down, and possibly spin-out.

• Try to avoid all walls and barriers. Walls and barriers can slow your
  car down drastically, and they can also cause your car to have an un-
  necessary spin-out, which you don't want.

• To recover from a spin-out quickly, simply let off the gas while you are
  spinning or moving, then steer with the spin until you slow down. Once
  you have done this, simply countersteer (steer into the direction you
  are spinning), then you will have regained control of your vehicle.

• Try not to power-slide TOO much in the game. Why? Because the physics
  engine of Gran Turismo 3 is very realistic, and if you try to power-
  slide around a sharp turn at high speeds, your car will skid or spin-out.

• Don't take sharp turns at very high speeds (this is especially bad with
  very, VERY fast cars). Doing this may cause your car to stop or slide,
  and will slow you down big-time.

  Draft. Drafting is when you pull up behind another car and stay behind them
  for awhile. Doing this reduces the air resistance on your car, therefore
  making it go faster. After awhile, simply pull out from behind the car,
  and you'll get a significant boost in speed from the lack of air resistance
  and pass the driver in front of you by a large margin.

 ―――――――――――――――――――――――――――\__________________/――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

Start off by purchasing a Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT-Apex or a Mazda Miata.
Use this car to enter the Sunday Cup, and race the first race a few times to
round up some cash (use the extra cash you have if you buy a Trueno to upgrade
the Engine), and use the cash to upgrade the engine and drivetrain.

Be sure to purchase some Sports Brakes and a new Suspension, to make the Sunday
and Clubman Cups easier.

Go and get your B-class and A-Class Licenses. This doesn't take long, unless
you want to have all golds. Once you have your A and B Licenses, move onto the
next paragraph.

Now just win the Sunday cup to get the Toyota Trueno (sell it if you already have
it), then race the first race of the Sunday Cup to earn cash over and over again,
then upgrade the Engine with a racing chip and engine modifications, get it
over 200 HP, then save up enough cash for a new transmission and a drivetrain
stuff (racing flywheel, Clutch/Triple Plate, Driveshaft/Carbon) and a
Lightweight/Stage 1 to boost acceleration, then adjust the transmission so that
you get slow acceleration but fast top speed (make the right-most bar on the
Gear Ratio screen, when you enter "settings" before a race, touch the top-right
corner of the box) and select "Level 35" on the Auto Setting in the Gear Ratio
screen, then enter the second race in the Turbo Challenge, and come in first place
(5,000 credits) or second place (2,500 credits) to win tons of cash. Repeat
until necessary. Keep doing this until you get enough money to buy a Mitsubishi
Lancer Evolution (any type will do), a Nissan Skyline, or a Mitsubishi 3000GT,
then enter some more advanced races, win 'em, and use that cash to upgrade your
new car to the max.

Also, win the Clubman Cup and get the Mazda Miata, then sell it for a quick
$4,500. Be sure to sell all of the crappy cars you win in the future.

==================
B LICENSE
==================

There are 8 parts to this license test. Most tests are done twice with a 
different car each time. Please note that going into the grass for over 2 
seconds or hitting a wall will result in immediate failure in any test. 
Getting at least a bronze on each test will allow you to receive the license.


---------
B-1 Start, Acceleration and Braking I

Accelerate from a standing start and stop as quickly as possible in the goal 
area beyond the finish line at 1000 meters. It is best to switch from full 
acceleration to full braking. HINT: Use the distance markers every 100 meters
to judge when to start braking.

Car used: Volkswagon New Beetle 2.0
Times to beat:
Gold   : 35.1s
Silver : 35.4s
Bronze : 35.8s

A simple test. As soon as the Go is given, step on the accelerator and don't 
let up. You'll see signs as you pass every 100 meters. Once past the 900 meter 
mark, you'll see a small white line to the right of you marking 950 meters. 
Slam on the brakes at this point or right before to clear the test.

---------

B-2 Start, Acceleration and Braking II
This test is similar to B-1, but with a higher powered test car that 
accelerates quicker but is heavier, so you need to start breaking sooner. 
HINT: Use the distance markers every 100 meters to judge when to start braking.

Car used: Viper GTS
Times to beat:
Gold   : 25.6s
Silver : 25.8s
Bronze : 26.3s

Again, another simple test. Again, accelerate as soon as GO is displayed, but 
this time, full brake at or before the 900 meter mark to stop safely in the 
goal area.

---------

B-3 Basics of Cornering: Front-wheel Drive
Negotiate a left turn after a long straightaway. Brake early and slow down 
before turning. Come in too fast and the car will not turn, but will fly off 
the outside of the corner. Take it easy going into the corner but hit the gas 
early coming out. Out of the corner, take full advantage of the track outside 
edge.

Car used: Coupe Turbo Plus
Gold   : 31.1s
Silver : 31.4s
Bronze : 32.5s

This test is fairly easy to complete, as the game puts a blue dashed line on 
the track to help you locate the best path to take through the turn. Follow 
the line and use the brake when you hit the red dash part of the line, then 
let off both gas and brake in the gray area. Once past that hit the gas to 
power through and head for the finish line.

---------

B-4 Basics of Cornering: Rear-wheel Drive
This test is the same as B-3, but this time you are driving a high-powered 
rear-wheel drive car, so hitting the gas to early in the corner risks the 
rear wheels losing their grip for a spin. In a corner, adjust the accelerator 
a little at a time and feel for when to go full out. HINT: Check out the Demo.

Car used: S2000
Gold   : 29.1s
Silver : 29.4s
Bronze : 31.0s

Again, follow the blue line and brake when the red area is reached. Turn and 
give the car a little gas. When you find that the car will not go off course, 
accelerate to full speed and head for the finish.

---------

B-5 Applied Cornering: Front-wheel Drive
From a standing start, take three consecutive corners: left, right and left. 
Rather than going full-out on the first two corners, figure how to get out of 
the third corner smoothly by hitting the gas for a fast time. Take the line 
that puts you in the best shape for getting out of the last corner. Gaining 
speed on the following long straightaway is more important than anything else.

Car used: Civic Type R(EK,J)
Gold   : 34.0s
Silver : 34.8s
Bronze : 36.2s

Follow the blue line and in the first turn don't bother braking. In the second 
turn, let off the gas to turn easier, then accelerate to the third turn. Here 
you wil brake for a sec, let off both gas and brake, and turn as close as you 
can to the inside of the corner. As soon as you start past the corner, full-out 
accelerate to the finish.

---------

B-6 Applied Cornering: Rear-wheel Drive
This course is the same as in B-5, but with a rear-wheel drive, hitting and 
releasing the gas cuases even larger changes in attitude. Be careful not to 
disturb the car's behavior. This car demands more delicate accelerator control 
and more careful steering than a front-wheel drive.

Car used: Mazda MX-5 Miata LS
Gold   : 33.0s
Silver : 33.3s
Bronze : 34.7s

You will basically follow the same as the last test, except in the second 
corner, tap the gas pedal through the turn. You'll also need to brake a little 
sooner to clear the third corner in the same way as before.

---------

B-7 Basics of Complex Corners
Here you run through a blind high-speed winding section. The left-to-right 
corner just before the tunnel is a very difficult corner. First get experience 
in a somewhat underpowered car with less risk. The key is to hit the brakes 
with the car going as straight as possible.

Car used: MR-S S Edition(J)
Gold   : 33.3s
Silver : 33.8s
Bronze : 35.4s

On each turn, start to the outside, and turn so that you cut as close to the 
corner as possible. There are two tight corners in the test. Let off the gas, 
start the turn, and accelerate through to continue on. Make sure not to contact 
the walls in the tunnel.

---------

B License Final Exam
This course has many blind corners. The rocky stretch in the first part 
requires bold driving with no fear of the rocky cliffs Use the technique of 
releasing the gas to turn the car. The speed out of the last left turn has 
a big effect on the time. The fastest line barely grazes the cliff when coming 
into the corner and lets out in the depths of the tunnel.

Car used: Skyline GT-R Vspec II(R32,J)
Gold   : 43.0s
Silver : 43.4s
Bronze : 46.0s

Start by going through the turn to the left full on the accelerator. Once you 
reach the second turn, brake and let off the gas to make the turn. On each of 
the following turns, try to cut as close to the walls as possible while tapping 
the accelerator. In the final turn to the left, make sure to floor the gas as 
soon as you are through the turn. Doing so ensures you will complete the test 
in time.


Once you have completed that test, you will receive your B License. 
Congratulations!


=====================
A License Exams
=====================

A-1 Practical Cornering I

Climb a hill with a gentle left and then negotiate a sharp right turn. Trying 
to approach the right corner from too far to the outside will cause instability 
under braking, so there is no need to come from excessively far outside. Try 
to brake in a straight line aiming for the inside curb. Then you just need to 
find the point to go to full throttle.

Car used: NSX Type S Zero(J)
Times to beat:
Gold  : 32.9s
Silver: 33.4s
Bronze: 34.7s

Accelerate from the starting point through the left turn. When you reach the 
sharp right, you'll want to let off the gas and brake WHILE STILL GOING 
STRAIGHT. If you brake while turning, you will go flying out into the grass. 
Once you have gone past the turn, floor the gas and head for the finish line.

---------

A-2 Practical Cornering II

The secret to a fast time is getting to the inside curb quickly after the end 
of braking, and using fine accelerator control to trace a long line right next 
to the curb. Once you see where to come out of the corner and go on the 
throttle, try to control the tail slide (when the rear tires succumb to too 
much power and slide to the outside) while riding up just barely on the outside 
curb.

Car used: Skyline GT-R V-spec II(R34,J)
Times to beat:
Gold  : 26.0s
Silver: 26.3s
Bronze: 27.6s

The only difference between this test and the last is in this one, you will 
brake while starting the turn, the let off the gas to cut as close to the curb, 
then full throttle out of the turn and try to maintain control of the car when 
coming out of the turn.

---------

A-3 Practical Cornering III

Here you negotiate the fasters number 1 corner on the Mid-Field Raceway. In 
contrast to the corners so far that required heavy braking, try downshifting 
to 3rd gear with light braking and just grazing the inside. Stay in 3rd and 
keep your speed upwhile aiming at the curb on the outside to draw a large 
circular path with a constant radius. There is no need to trace the inside 
curb all the time.

Car used: S2000
Times to beat:
Gold  : 29.9s
Silver: 30.2s
Bronze: 31.6s

As you enter the turn, lightly use the brake and then accelerate through the 
rest of the turn. This is a fairly easy test which should give no real 
problems.

---------

A-4 Circle Track: 60R, Dry Road

Three laps around a circular track with a 60-m radius. Try using fine steering
and accelerator control to keep to a line right next to the inside curb from 
start to finish. Just before the finish line, gain time by using the full width 
of the track so that you cross the finsih line all the way to the outside. 
Watch for tail slides from hitting the gas too hard.

Car used: Mazda RX-7 Type RZ(J)
Times to beat:
Gold  : 43.9s
Silver: 44.3s
Bronze: 46.2s

You'll want to keep the car's speed between 60-65mph on this test. Tap the 
brakes every once in a while to allow yourself to stay as close to the inside 
curb as possible. On the last lap, head for the outside once you see the 
finish line.

---------

A-5 Circle Track: 100R, Dry Road

Three laps around a circular track with a 100-m radius. Try using fine 
steering and accelerator control to keep to a line right next to the inside 
curb from start to finish. Just before the finish line, gain time by using 
the full width of the track so that you cross the finsih line all the way 
to the outside. Watch for oversteer from hitting the gas too hard.

Car used: Mazda RX-7 Type RZ(J)
Times to beat:
Gold  : 55.8s
Silver: 56.3s
Bronze: 59.0s

Same as the last test. You'll want to keep the car's speed between 75-85 mph 
on this test. Tap the brakes every once in a while to allow yourself to stay 
as close to the inside curb as possible. On the last lap, head for the outside 
once you see the finish line.

---------

A-6 Long Corners

This is a left/right complex corner. Avoid getting close to the inside too 
early on the first right corner and aim for the inside curb at the tunnel 
entrance. The next corner is a left, so avoid going all the way to the outside 
but rather point the car to the right side of the track anf get ready for the
next left corner. In the long left corner, avoid goosing the accelerator and 
keep to the inside without haste.

Car used: XKR Coupe
Times to beat:
Gold  : 27.0s
Silver: 27.5s
Bronze: 29.5s

This test gives you a rolling start, so be ready to take command when Start is 
displayed. In the right turn, brake and left off the gas to cut into the corner 
as deeply as possible. Make sure to get near the right side of the track once 
through the turn as you will then need to do the same, except on a left turn. 
Floor the gas as you come out and speed to the finish.

---------

A-7 Blind Corner

You must negotiate a right turn at the top of a hill in Seattle. The corner is 
completely blind, so getting ready to brake in advance is necessary. After 
landing the last jump, brake immediately and turn to the right, aiming for the 
inside curb. Hit the gas once you are cleanly on the curb and use the outside 
wall as far as possible.

Car used: Camaro Z28
Times to beat:
Gold  : 14.2s
Silver: 14.7s
Bronze: 15.4s

Again, you are given a rolling start. Accelerate, but after the third jump, be 
ready and brake a little to make the right turn, then accelerate to the finish 
line.

---------

A License Final Exam

This is the most difficult stretch of Mid-Field. In the small S-corner, ignore 
the first left and focus on the next right. Make a deep cut into the right curb 
and come out as close as possible to the next hairpin. Brake while disturbing 
the car's attitude to turn toward the inside. The key lies in turning the car 
sharply in the first half of the corner so that you can hit the gas when coming 
out.

Car used: Lancer Evolution IV GSR(J)
Times to beat:
Gold  : 15.53s
Silver: 16.0s
Bronze: 17.8s

On the first left, go to the outside and then be prepared for the right. Cut 
as close to the inside of the turn as possible, then get ready for the last 
turn, a left. Brake while turning to the inside, and then accelerate through 
the turn and head for the finish.


Congratulations! You now have your A license!


==================================
International B License Exams
==================================

With the exception of IB-1 and IB-2, all tests give you a rolling
start.

-----------------------------

IB-1 Circle Track: 60R, Wet Road

Three laps around a circular track with a 60-m radius. This is
basically the same test as A-4, but this time the road is wet as if
after a rain. The test car has the traction control and other driver
assist features turned off, so even more delicate accelerator control
is required. See how the car reacts depending on how you step on the gas.

Car used: Corvette Z06
Times to beat:
Gold  : 49.6s
Silver: 50.2s
Bronze: 52.8s

To pass this test, you want to stay as close to the inside curb as
close as possible. Keep your speed between 50-60mph and don't brake,
just let off the accelerator. Continue to tap the accelerator to
keep the speed in that range. You will need to make sure you don't
accelerate too fast, else you will begin to spin out.

---------

IB-2 Circle Track: 100R, Wet Road

Three laps around a circular track with a 100-m radius. This is
basically the same test as A-5, but this time the road is wet as if
after a rain. The test car has the traction control and other driver
assist features turned off, so even more delicate accelerator control
is required. See how the car reacts depending on how you step on the gas.

Car used: Corvette Z06
Times to beat:
Gold  : 1m 1.6s
Silver: 1m 2.4s
Bronze: 1m 5.5s

To pass this test, you want to stay as close to the inside curb as
close as possible. Keep your speed between 70-75mph and don't brake,
just let off the accelerator. Continue to tap the accelerator to
keep the speed in that range. You will need to make sure you don't
accelerate too fast, else you will begin to spin out.

---------

IB-3 Braking and Cornering I

Here you negotiate a 90-degree right turn at the end of the Seattle
back straightaway, and crank two consecutive sharp turns. Without a
solid feel for the point to start braking, not only will you overshoot
the first right corner but the car's attitude will be bad for entering
the subsequent turns, resulting in a big time loss.

Car used: S2000 Type V(J)
Gold  : 22.45s
Silver: 23.0s
Bronze: 24.5s

Accelerate until the first right turn. Slow down to between 60-70mph
or whatever feel comfortable to you, and as you come out of the turn,
speed up and you should be able to pass right by the inside corner of
the left turn. Once past this, let off the gas to right yourself
coming out of the turn, then accelerate and for the following S
curve, go right through the middle passing the rails first on the left,
then the right side to the goal line.

---------

IB-4 Braking and Cornering II

This est has you negotiate Seattle's number 1 corner. This is a squared
off U shaped corner combining two 90-degree turns. After braking fully
to the right speed, try to run a smooth circular line that clips the
corners of both turns. Even if oyu are not right at the inside of the
first turn, be sure to clip the second corner, taking a line that
emphasizes the corner exit.

Car used: Corvette Z06
Gold  : 19.7s
Silver: 20.0s
Bronze: 21.2s

Accelerate and head to the outside of the first turn. Nearing it, brake
down to 40mph and cut as close to the turn as possible. Once past the
turn, accelerate and turn right for the second turn and when you come
out of it, you should miss hitting the left wall. Head to the finish.

---------

IB-5 Turning Accelerating and Weight Shift

This is the final stretch of Grand Valley. After accelerating while
turning through the tunnel, negotiate two consecutive hairpin turns.
While accelerating through the tunnel, avoid swinging too far out. In
the double hairpin, change the orientation of the car with rythmical
accelerator on/off action. Trying too hard in the first right will make
you suffer in the second, more important corner.

Car used: RUF 3400S
Gold  : 28.8s
Silver: 29.3s
Bronze: 30.5s

Accelerate into the tunnel, staying between 75 and 80mph. Once to the
first turn, slow down to 40mph and then after the turn, give a bit of
acceleration, but take the next turn at 40mph as well. After that, give
it the gas to the finish.

---------

IB-6 Fast Slalom I: Assist On

Cars are susceptible to spin on this slalom track. The test car has the
driver assist features turned on. Here you can safely learn how to turn
with the accelerator off and stabilize the car with the accelerator on-
an important lesson in accelerator control for driving a car. The
rhythm is something like "turn the car and then hit the gas while
passing the cones". Try to take actions far, far in advance.

Car used: RUF RGT
Gold  : 23.9s
Silver: 24.2s
Bronze: 26.2s

Accelerate through the first two turns, without braking. Use the red
and white curbs to your advantage. Release the gas for the third turn
to make the turn and the accelerate again for the next turn. Follow
this pattern to make it to the end. Your speed should stay between 90-
105mph.

---------

IB-7 Fast Slalom II: Assist Off

Now the test car's stability control system (which surpresses car spin)
is turned off. It is now necessary to turn with the accelerator off and
stabilize the car with the accelerator on much more carefully. By
comparing against the previous test, you should see just how much cars
now depend on technology. The key is to take actions far, far in
advance to prevent car movements from becoming too large.

Car used: RUF RGT
Gold  : 24.0s
Silver: 24.3s
Bronze: 26.3s

Accelerate through the first two turns, without braking. Use the red
and white curbs to your advantage. Release the gas for the third turn
to make the turn and the accelerate again for the next turn. Follow
this pattern to make it to the end. Your speed should stay between 85-
95mph.

---------

International B License Final Exam
This is the most difficult stretch of Apricot Hill. You just graze the
inside of the first high-speed left and control the car from its
unstable attitude while intermittently applying brakes to enter the
second left. Make sure you are able to keep solidly to the inside of
the left corner. In the subsequent S turn section, watch for excess
speed while rhythmically tracing the curbs.

Car used: NSX Type S Zero(J)
Gold  : 31.7s
Silver: 32.0s
Bronze: 33.7s

Accelerate untilt he first turn, where you'll want to brake to 90-
100mph which should allow you to slide around the corner. Tap the brake
for the following turn, and then accelerate, only using the brake when
necessary. Stay as close to the curbs on eash turn as possible, and
there should be no real trouble.

---------

Congrats on making it this far! You now have your I-B License!


=============================
International A License Exams
=============================

All tests give you a rolling start.

-----------------------------

IA-1 Fast Complex Corners I

This is a technical section in the middle of Tokyo Route 246. Take
the first left by lightly letting up on the gas. Take the right corner
at the top of the hill by braking just before starting to climb the
hill. It is a blind corner, so be sure to remember the point when to
start turning. If you think of this as one large corner, you will be
able to drive through it quickly.

Car used: LANCER Evolution VI Rally Car
Times to beat:
Gold  : 40.0s
Silver: 40.7s
Bronze: 42.5s

After the first left (which you can slide through easily by letting off
the gas and turning) will be a small S curve. You can get through this
without even slowing down. Prepare after that to brake and turn right,
then accelerate and take the next right. From here, it's a small curve
to the finish.

---------

IA-2 Fast Complex Corners II

This is the last fast chicane on Trial Mountain. Basically you should
be able to take it at full throttle. The rhythm going from the first
left to cutting right is important. After riding up onto the left curb,
you must turn right immediately or risk crashing into the wall on exit.
Riding up too far on the high curb on the right side will make the car
jump, so try to graze it just barely.

Car used: Spoon S2000(J)
Times to beat:
Gold  : 15.7s
Silver: 15.9s
Bronze: 16.4s

This is an easy test. The only thing is that when you get to the left
turn before the straightaway, you cannot go too high up onto the right
side else the car will jump. The game will fail you if you make the car
jump.

---------

IA-3 Fast COmplex Corners III

This is the same track as in B-7. YOur car has more power this time,
requiring more accurate steering and rhythmical accelerator control. In
the corner that turns broadly to the right after leaving the first
tunnel, inadvertantly hitting the gas too early will cause the car to
fly off to the outside, so you must wait patiently for the point to go
to full throttle.

Car used: IMPREZA Rally Car Prototype
Gold  : 23.4s
Silver: 23.8s
Bronze: 25.0s

Take the first right without even slowing down. Enter the next leftby
letting off the gas and positioning yourself for the following right.
This is the most important turn, as you'll need to accelerate when you
come out of the turn without going right into the tunnel wall and
failing.

---------

IA-4 Braking and Cornering III

This section is from the latter half of Tokyo Route 246. In the braking
into corner number 1, it is important to find the optimal braking start
point that lets you turn into the corner the instant that braking ends.
Excessive speed must be avoided at all costs. The S-curve surrounded by
fences after the tree lined boulevard also require care in braking
solidly before entering and accelerating while leaving.

Car used: Castrol MUGEN NSX JGTC(J)
Gold  : 32.2s
Silver: 32.4s
Bronze: 34.4s

Accelerate and head for the first turn. Before the tunr, there is a
yellow sign on the right side of you. Use that to gauge when to start
braking. Take the turn at the speed you feel you can still control the
car (40-50mph is recommended) and then power slide through the coming S
curve.

---------

IA-5  Corkscrew

This is the famous corkscrew curve at Laguna Seca. The downhill stretch
before the corner makes the brakes less effective, so early braking is
required. Finding the best line is difficult, so check out the demo.
The left corner after the corkscrew lies after a steep downhill and has
a shallow bank, so watch for unusual car movement.

Car used: Viper GTS
Gold  : 23.0s
Silver: 23.3s
Bronze: 25.0s

Accelerate up the hill but be ready to brake BEFORE the downhill. Once
into the turn, be careful as there is a high chance of spinning out if
you're going too fast. Ue the curbs to your advantage, but don't go out
into the grass. For the last turn, you should be able to take it  by
letting off the gas or just sliding through the turn.

---------

IA-6 Fast COmplex Corners IV

This section is in the latte half of the Rome Circuit. These blind S-
curves go left-right-left. The back straightaway awaiting afterward is
quite long, so think about a line that gives the highest priority to
exit speed. The last right corner can definantly be taken at full
throttle. It is very important to avoid trying too hard at the exit of
the first left corner.

Car used: Zonda C12
Gold  : 20.1s
Silver: 20.4s
Bronze: 21.3s

Acclerate to the first left turn, and depending on your speed, tap the
brakes or let off the gas. For the right turn, stay as close to the
right rail as possible and you can go through the turn without using
brakes. The last turn is gentle so floor it to the finish.

---------

IA-7 Undalating Corners

Negotiate the consecutive high-sped S curves while going over hills in
the final section of the Complex String track. The track is designed so
that turning alternates between the hilltops and valleys, so look out
for major changes in steering response depending on weight shifts.
Coming out well from the last hairpin turn is most important for
shortening your time.

Car used: SKYLINE GT-R V-Spec II(R34,J)
Gold  : 46.0s
Silver: 46.6s
Bronze: 49.5s

Accelerate through the gentle right, then when you reach the first
hill, let off the gas. Not doing this will probably cause the car to go
straight into the grass on the other side. Once through, just keep a
constant speed (105-110) and amke sure you have complete control over
the car. For the hairpin, brake early, and watch out for hitting the
gas too early as the car may spin out.

---------

International A license Final Exam

This is a reverse direction run over the constant-radius circular
slalom track at COmplex String. The radii of the circles get
progressively smaller, so focus on controlling your speed to match the
turn radius while avoiding understeer. If you lose your rhythm and
swing too far outside, this results in a big time loss. This test is
very difficult.

Car used: Mine's Skyline GT-R - N1 V-Spec(R34,J)
Gold  : 1m 8.85s
Silver: 1m 10s
Bronze: 1m 12.5s

This really is a tough challenge. The best advice is accelerate and
keep yourself close to the inside of the turns, but don't be afraid to
tap the brakes. Watch for spinouts too. The last two turns are really
ugly because if you enter too fast, you have no chance and will fail
the test. This one took me(OroJin) about 20 tries, most of which I
lost in the last turns or took too long.

---------

Alright! Two more licenses to go!


=============================
Rally License Exams
=============================

All tests give a rolling start.
-----------------------------

R-1 Rally Driving Basics I

This test uses corner number 1 of the Tahiti Circuit. The main
straightaway is paved but watch out as it changes to dirt in corner
number 1. After going into the dirt while braking, you will find much
more sliding but stay calm and get used to the motion of the car. The
steering reaction times become slower so be sure to turn the wheel
earlier.

Car used: 206 Rally Car
Times to beat:
Gold  : 15.6s
Silver: 16.0s
Bronze: 17.3s

Pretty easy test here. Just brake slightly before the turn, and make
sure to control your steering. YOu'll need to get used to how the rally
cars go.
---------

R-2 Rally Driving Basics II

This test uses the last section of Smokey Mountain. After the gradual
uphill left corner, the section with the right-left-right turns one
after another can be driven with steering turns made far, far in
advance an exited in a straight line. If it goes well, they can be
negotiated without ever letting up on the accelerator.

Car used: CAROLLA Rally Car
Times to beat:
Gold  : 29.2s
Silver: 29.6s
Bronze: 31.8s

This test is a good one to learn how to steer the rally cars. Before
each turn, start turning so that you'll be ready to go straight in each
turn. On the final left turn, you should be able to slide through it
without hitting the far wall if you start to turn early enough.

---------

R-3 Rally Driving Basics III

This is a S-Curve in the middle section of the Swiss Alps track. Try
steering to the left while braking and once you graze the fence on the
inside of the grassy area, turn to the right at full throttle. Take the
gradual right corner just before reaching the back straightaway in
"out-in-out" style by turning the wheel as little as possible. The key
to driving here is to cut boldly across the grass areas.

Car used: Escort Rally Car
Gold  : 22.3s
Silver: 22.7s
Bronze: 24.0s

The only thing that you really have to do on this test is brake and cut
as close to the left fence as possible on the first left turn. Once
past this, you should have no real trouble.

---------

R-4 Practical Rally Driving I

Here are three connected corners in the last stretch of the Tahiti
Circuit. Always brake and steer well in advance to turn the car and
trace the shortest path while drifting. The key lies in grasping the
relationship between speed and sliding. Excess speed that pushes you
too far on the outside will make entering the next corner difficult and
lead to time losses.

Car used: CELICA Rally Car
Gold  : 22.4s
Silver: 22.8s
Bronze: 24.3s

Take the first turn going full speed, then prepare to brake and steer
for each turn after this. Try to stay as close to the inside corner and
make sure not to slide too far out.

---------

R-5 Practical Rally Driving II

This is a difficult section in the final stretch of the Swiss Alps,
requiring turn braking in hairpin turns. With full brakes on, just
barely graze the fence on the right and when your speed drops low
enough, cut back to the left. Taking this corner with a small, compact
turn is most important. Drifting too broadly in the final corner will
not let you build up speed so try to come out straight.

Car used: LANCER Evolution VI Rally Car
Gold  : 26.85s
Silver: 27.3s
Bronze: 29.6s

Start off on full accleration. Start to turn before the right turn
while braking. Once you speed hits 40-50mph, you should have good
control over the car. Cut back to the left and don't slide too far to
the outside. The following right is the same, again make sure to not
slide out.

---------

R-6 Drifting Techniques I

These are four consecutive hairpin turns in the last stretch of the
Tahiti Maze. The key to drifting in a tight turn is to use braking and
steering to create an opportunity and instantly cause a tail slide by
hitting the gas. Thereafter, maintain the car's attitude with steering
and accelerator control. If you keep on the countersteer even further,
you will get dumped to the outside when exiting.

Car used: Delta HF Integrale Rall Car
Gold  : 29.4s
Silver: 30.0s
Bronze: 31.8s

On each turn brake while turning to throw yourself into a slide, and
then just steer yourself straight while accelerating. This test may
take a few tries, but once you get that basic action listed above down,
you'll find this test quite easy.

---------

R-7 Drifting Techniques II

These are three consecutive downhill hairpin turns on the last half of
Tahiti Maze II. The basics are the same as in Test R-6, but the
downhill makes the car more susceptible to sliding, so try to avoid
excessive drift angles. Try to find the point where to hit the brakes
so that you just barely graze the inside.

Car used: IMPREZA Rally Car prototype
Gold  : 22.4s
Silver: 22.8s
Bronze: 24.6s

On each turn brake while turning to throw yourself into a slide, and
then just steer yourself straight while accelerating. This test is
about the same as the previous test, but you have to handle the braking
and steering with a tighter grip.

---------

Rally License Final Exam

One lap around the Tahiti Maze in the latest rally car prototype
version of the Lancer Evolution. In the section with consecutive
hairpin turns, try tracing the shortest line with a drifting technique
that clips corners right in front of your nose. In the section with
consecutive small corners in the middle stretch, it is easy to spin
out, so avoid drifting too daringly. Drive the paved road at the end as
carefully as the circuit.

Car used: LANCER Evolution VII Rally Car Prototype
Gold  : 1m 58.7s
Silver: 2m 0s
Bronze: 2m 8s

This test requires you to put together everything you just learned. The
past two tests are in this course, and this is where you'll lose a
majority of your time if you aren't careful. This test may take a few
tries, but just concentrate on not spinning out.

This mini-section are descriptions that were taken from the GT 2 Reference
Manual.
_____________________________________________________________________

=======================
1.) Muffler
=======================

-------
Sports
-------

Combines a less-restrictive replacement sports-model air cleaner with
a low back-pressure sports muffler to improve intake and exhaust flow.
Ideal as a first-time turbo upgrade. Improves high-rpm torque in non
supercharged engines.

--------------
Semi-Racing
--------------

A competition-grade air cleaner with urethane sponge filter is combined with a
low-back pressure muffler designed to enhance engine performance at high rpm.
Ideal for large-displacement turbo engines. When using with a non-supercharged
engine, proper tuning beforehand is a must.

--------
Racing
--------

Delivering even better intake efficiency than the semi-racing model, this
racing air cleaner with a velocity stack is combined with a high-
efficiency straight muffler designed for racing cars that normally operate in
the high-rpm range. Suitable for tunings that maximize peak power. Reduces 
low-rpm torque and so requires proper consideration of engine characteristics, 
gear ratio, and other factors.



=======================
2.) Brakes
=======================

---------------
Sports Brakes
---------------
Contains carbon metallic brake pads for dependable stopping power, even during
long-distance driving. With far more initial stopping power and fade resistance
than ordinary brakes, these brakes are also suitable for endurance races. Brake
fluid (DOT 5) is also changed.

--------------------------
Brake Balance Controller
--------------------------
Controls the anti-lock braking system to maintain the desired balance in
braking power between the front and rear brakes. Strengthen the front to increase
understeer for extra stability, or strengthen the rear to increase oversteer
for better maneuverability. Remember that a too-strong rear brake balance 
increases the likelihood of spinout.


=======================
3.) Engine
=======================


------------------
Performance Chip
------------------

The most basic upgrade. Altering the Engine Management Program settings allows
you to boost power by adjusting engine ignition timing, the air/fuel ratio, and
other variables. For turbocharged vehicles, the air filter and muffler are 
also replaced, for a beginner's-level upgrade.

----------------------
Full-Engine Balancing
----------------------

An extensive upgrade that includes piston and connecting rod weight balancing,
and a precision-balanced crankshaft. Reduces vibration and bearing loads, and
allows higher engine speeds. The rev limiter is reset to take advantage of
this.

-----------------
Port and Polish
-----------------

Polishes the interior of the intake ports, reducing air-flow resistance boosts
engine power by what may seem a low degree, but is essential for normally
aspirated and supercharged engines alike.

------------
NA Tune-up
------------

* STAGE 1:
Boosts the power of non-supercharged engines by adjusting the ignition and
valve timing and by installing thinner head gaskets for a higher compression ratio.
The exhaust manifold is also replaced. Peak power is enhanced without affecting
low-rpm torque.

* STAGE 2:

Picks up where Stage 1 leaves off. Not only raises the compression ratio even
further with high-compression pistons and head polishing, but also boots high-
rpm output by replacing the cams, mounting reinforced valve springs, and Port
and Polish. Although low-speed torque is diminished somewhat, the emphasis 
here is on boosting high-rpm power. The Engine Management Computer is also 
reset according to your vehicle specs.

* STAGE 3:

Following up on Stage 2 enhancements, this upgrade completely overhauls the
engine to enhance high-rpm performance. Higher- compression pistons, special
high-lift racing cams with a large amount of valve overlap, heavy-duty
competition valve sprins and connection rods, and engine block strengthening
are all part of the package. The power band is shifted to the medium to high
range to boost maximum horsepower.

----------------------
Displacement Increase
----------------------

There's no replacement for displacement. This Acid Rain Sucks upgrade raises 
cylinder displacement by increasing engine bore and stroke. Greater displacement
generally boosts the engine's torque in all rpm ranges.


=======================
4.) Drivetrain
=======================

Transmissions
===============

* Sports Transmission

Replaces a normal transmission assembly with a transmission with closer gear
ratios in all five gears. Prevents revs from dropping below the powerband when
upshifting, and allows smoother downshifts. Ensures useful power in a variety
of turns. Recommended for non-supercharged engines.

* Semi-racing Transmission

These gear ratios are even closer than those of the Spors Close- Ratio
Transmission. This gearbox is ideal for highly-tuned cars with a narrow
powerband. Note that upshifting and downshifting will become more frequent.
Because of time loss during shifting, this transmission may be
counterproductive in cars with high-torque, wide-powerband engines.

* Full-racing Transmission

For races that permit the replacement of all gears, including the final drive
gear. This upgrade also makes it possible to fine-tune the gear ratios
according to vehicle specs and circuit features.

--------
Clutch
--------
* Heavy-Duty Single Plate Clutch

Changes the clutch feeling during upshifting, so that upshifting feels more
direct than with a normal clutch.

* Twin Plate Clutch

This racing clutch kit features dual clutch places, ideal for high-torque,
high- power vehicles. Reduces clutch slippage during upshifting, improving
acceleration.

* Triple Plate Clutch

Featuring three clutch places, this clutch kit boosts torque transmission and
enhances the directness of the power. Ideal for highly-tuned cars.

-----------------------------------------------
Limited-Slip Differential (For Professionals)
-----------------------------------------------
* 2-Way Limited-Slip

A limited-slip differential that delivers the limited slip effect during both
acceleration adn deceleration. Stabilizes the vehicle attitude during braking,
thereby permitting even harder braking. Delivers powerful traction during
acceleration, but clearly makes turning more difficult and so is suited to
drivers who are skilled at turning.

* 1.5-Way Limited-Slip

Reduces the limited-slip effect during deceleration while maintaining the full
limited-slip effect during acceleration. This ensures powerful traction, and
during braking, prevents excessive reduction in the force of the car attempting
to turn. Free of quirkiness, this is a good all-around limited-slip unit.

* 1-Way Limited-Slip

This limited-slip activates the limited-slip effect only during acceleration,
and so is suitable for front wheel drive vehicles, which are difficult to turn
under any conditions. The absence of the limited-slip effect during braking
makes it possible to maximize turning power. However, the tendency of the
vehicle to lose stability during braking should be noted. The shortcoming of
this type of limited-slip is that vehicle characteristics during acceleration
change greatly when the accelerator is released to decelerate.

* Full Customization

This special rcing modification allows independent adjustment of the limited-
slip effect during acceleration and deceleration. Although capable of greatly
changing a car's performance, this modification requires careful adjustment as
improper adjustment can destroy the car's balance.

------------
Flywheel
------------
* Sports

A lightweight flywheel made with chrome molybdenum steel. Let's the engine rev
mroe quickly. Improves acceleration slightly, but with narrow-powerband
engines, revs may drop below the powerband unless a close-ratio transmission is 
also used.

* Semi-Racing

Even lighter than the sports type, this flywheel is especially designed for
racing. Makes for a quick-revving engine. Improves acceleration slightly, but
with narrow-powerband engines, revs may drop below the powerband even more
easily unless a close-ratio transmission is also used.

* Racing

A super-lightweight flywheel exclusively for racing. Makes for a quick-revving
engine that also drops revs quickly. Improves acceleration and deceleration,
but with narrow-powerband engines, revs may drop below the powerband unless a
close- ratio transmission is also used and the driver can master the proper 
shifting technique.

-----------
Driveshaft
-----------
* Carbon Driveshaft

A lightweight driveshaft made with a carbon composite. Situated between the
engine and the differential gear in front-engined, rear wheel drive or all
wheel drive cars, the driveshaft is just as important as the flywheel for
acceleration performance.


=======================
5.) Turbo
=======================

Turbo Kits
-----------

* STAGE 1:

A turbo kit that uses a compact turbocharger to generate high-rpm torque without
sacrificing torque in the low to medium rance. Minimal turbo lag and high
response combine to create an excellent balance suitable for all types of
circuits. Metal gaskets, oil cooler, are inforced oil pump, and other high-
durability parts are also installed.

* STAGE 2:

A turbo kit that stresses high-rpm peak power and low to mid-range balance.
Torque in the low range is somewhat low compared to Turbo Kit 1, but mid to
high range power is boosted considerably. In addition to metal gaskets, oil 
cooler, a reinforced oil pump, and other high- durability parts, a fuel pump, 
injector computer, and other turbo components are also installed.

* STAGE 3:

A turbo kit that focuses on quarter-mile acceleration. The powerband shifts
further into the high-rpm range than with Turbo it 2. For greater
effectiveness, this turbo kit should be combined with a close-ratio 
transmission and other parts. The cam is also replaced with one designed for 
turbo characteristics. In addition to metal gaskets, oil cooler, a reinforced 
oil pump, and other high- durability parts, a fuel pump, injector, computer, 
and other turbo components are also installed.

* STAGE 4:

An oversized, high-rpm, high-output turbo kit designed purely with maximum 
horsepower in mind. Suitable for maximum-speed contests, for instance. The cam 
is also replaced with one designed for turbo characteristics. In addition to 
metal gaskets, oil cooler, a reinforced oil pump, and other high-durability 
parts, a special fuel pump, injector, computer, and other turbo components are 
also installed.

=======================
6.) Intercooler
=======================

--------
Sports
--------

This air-cooled intercooler cools the hot intake air after it is
pressurized by the turbocharger. By lowering the intake air temperature, air
density is increased, allowing for more fuel to be used and boosting power. An
essential part for a high-performance turbo engine.

---------
Racing
---------

Boosts the power of a supercharged engine by lowering the intake air
temperature. The larger capacity increases the temperature-reducing
capabilities but slightly lowers engine response. This high-capacity
intercooler is a suitable upgrade for engines with a high maximum
supercharging pressure.



=======================
7.) Suspension
=======================

----------------
Suspension Kits
----------------
* Sports

An all-purpose, beginner-friendly suspension kit that covers all types of
driving, from street to circuit. Both front and rear shock absorbers are
adjustable to one of 10 damping force levels. Camber angle is also adjustable.
Clearnace is lowered approximately 1 inch in the front and back. Two-way low-
pressure gas shock absorbers (adjustable to 10 levels).

* Semi-Racing

A ride height-altering suspension kit for intermediate drivers. Spring rate and
the shock absorber damping force are harder than with normal sports suspension.
Front and rear ride height is adjustable in 1-millimeter increments. Damping
force is adjustable to one of 10 levels, and camber angle is also adjustable.
Single high-pressure gas shock absorbers.

* Full Customization (For Professionals)

Enables tuning of all suspension parts. Adjusts shock absorbers, replaces
springs with ones with different spring rates, and replaces the stabilizar
(anti-roll bar), which controls the vehicle's lateral roll stiffness. Wheel
camber can be changed, and toe-in is also adjustable. Shock absorber
compression (bound) and extension (rebound) are independently adjustable to one 
of 10 levels.



=======================
8.)Tires
=======================

--------------
Sports Tires
--------------
Sports tires are for paved-road driving and have a greater grip than normal
tires. Mounting high-performance tires enhances a car's cornering,
acceleration, and braking performance and is the most effective upgrade. 
Purchasing tiresentitles you to subsequent tire services for as long as you own 
those tires. Front and rear tires must be purchased together.

--------------------
Racing Slick Tires
--------------------
* Racing Hard

A set of front and rear slick tires for racing on paved surfaces. These tires
have low grip but are made with a durable compund that ensures consisten grip
over the long term. Because these tires warm up slowly, use proper caution
during the first 2 laps on a racing course.

* Racing Medium

A set of front and rear slick tires for racing on paved surfaces and made of a
special compund that provides a proper balance between grip and durability.
Tires heat to the appropriate temperature after 1 lap to ensure high grip. Thee
tires are not as durable as hard tires but last longer.

* Racing Soft

A set of front and rear slick tires for racing on paved surfaces and made of a
special compund that provides excellent grip, although at the expense of some 
durability. Ideal for time trials, for instance. After only one-half lap, these 
tires heat sufficiently to provide excellent grip. Limited durability requires 
more-frequent tire replacement.

* Racing Super Soft

A set of front and rear slick tires for racing on paved surfaces. These tires,
which cast durability to the win to provide maximum grip, requre only several
turns to warm up to the point of maximum grip. Caution is required as loss of
grip due to wear can occur suddenly.

-------------------
Dirt Racing Tires
-------------------
Dirt racing tires, which must be mounted on all 4 wheels for racing on dirt
courses. These tires are designed to ensure vehicle controllability on slippery
gravel and other unpaved surfaces. Dirt racing tires are available only for
certain vehicle types.

--------------------------------------
Simulation Tires (For Professionals)
--------------------------------------
A tire that even more closely approximates the characteristic of
actual, real-life tires. These tires make driving with the game
controller extremely difficult and so provide a virtual experience of
real-life driving (as opposed to video-game driving), requiring early
braking, careful steering, and delicate accelerator manipulation. This
is a set of front and rear tires for paved surfaces.


=======================
9.) Others
=======================

------------------
Weight Reduction
------------------
* STAGE 1:

Lightens the vehicle by removing unnecessary parts and relacing others with
parts made of lightweight-material. The numerous advantages of a lighter car
include enchanced acceleration performance, improved cornering and braking, and
better tire durability.

* STAGE 2:

Lightens the vehicle more by removing more parts and/or replacing more with
lighter materials.

* STAGE 3:

Takes Stage 2 lightening a step further.


-------------------
For Professionals
-------------------

* Yaw Control System:

This component changes the setting of the Yaw Control System, which generates
rotational moment in the vehicle by controlling the distribution of torque
between the left and ride drive wheels. Raising the setting creates rotational
moment during cornering, making turning easier. Note that too high a setting 
increases the likelihood of tire spinning.

* Active Stability Controller:

Prevents spinning due to oversteering by actively controlling the
braking power of all four wheels. A high setting stabilizes the car
but makes cornering more difficult. A low setting permits greater
freedom of movement in cornering but diminishes the spin-prevention
effectiveness of the device.

* TCS Controller:

For adjusting the setting of the TCS (Traction Control System), which prevents
wheelspin by automatically releasing the accelerator when a drive wheel is
detected to be spinning. Changing the traction control setting changes car's
handling. A high setting stabilizes the car by eliminating wheelspin, but may
dimish acceleration. With powerful rear wheel drive, a low setting can result
in oversteering when the accelerator is being pressed.

 ―――――――――――――――――――――――――――\__________________/――――――――――――――――――――――――――――


There are 5 to 6 tracks in a group. Getting 1st place on all 6 tracks in a 
group gives you something depending on difficulty. Example: Clearing all of 
Group A with 1st place wins on easy gives you Group B.

*TIP*: Beating a race on Hard opens up all of the prizes, even the prizes that
       are given just for a win on Easy Mode. We suggest doing this to avoid
       having to race more than you have to.

--------------------
STRATEGY FOR TRACKS:
--------------------
This will be a small guide to all of the tracks that I've had time to write
for, along with the length of each one.


TARMAC TRACKS
=============

Midfield Raceway
-----------------
A course that is semi-hard, or moderate. Some areas are tough to manuver, while
the rest is simple. Just watch out for all of those 180 degree turns right
after the start line, right before the second sector, and right before the third
sector.

LENGTH: 3550 Ft.



Super Speedway
---------------
Now this is the easiest track in the game, because of it's oval shape. You can
take this course at full speed if you want to, just be careful.

LENGTH: 2406 Ft.


Seattle Circuit
---------------
Another variation of a course, this time of Seattle Short Course, this one is a
hard track to race on. Some trouble spots are right after the finish line, the
series of turns after the first sector, and the turns right before and after
the third sector.

LENGTH: 3779 Ft.


Rome Circuit
-------------
A variation of the Rome Short Course, this one is pretty tough. Some spots to
watch yourself on are the turn after the first sector, and 180 degree turn
after the previous turn, the two 90 degree turns right before and after the 
second sector, and the two 90 degree turns after the third sector.

LENGTH: 4000 Ft.


Laguna Seca Raceway
---------------------
This is one of the best tracks in the game, but it's also one of the hardest to
manuver, because of the famous corkscrew and all of the sharp turns that are
surrounded by dirt. On the corkscrew, slow down to almost a stop, take the turn
from the inside, and veer towards the outside of the road. And as for the sharp
turns, just slow down REALLY early.

LENGTH: 3602 Ft.


Apricot Hill Speedway
-----------------------
I hate this course. I hate it because of all the tight turns and 90-180-degree
angle turns. Just go slow throughout all of the turns so you don't spin out,
and only speed up on the straightway near the finish line.

LENGTH: 3864 Ft.


Trail Mountain Circuit
-----------------------
This is an okay course, if if wasn't for all of the blind turns. Trial Mountain
Circuit attacks you with a ton of sharp-ass turns, and if you don't slow down,
you'll end up either spinning out, or smashing against the outer barrier of the
course.

LENGTH: 3979 Ft.


Grand Valley Speedway
-----------------------
Grand Valley Speedway is rather difficult course to race on. This is mostly
because of the 180-degree turn right after the finish line, another 180-degree
turn right after the first sector, and multiple 90-degree turns before the
second sector, and the last big turns right after the third sector.

LENGTH: 4960 Ft.


Special Stage Route 5
----------------------
A variation of Clubman Stage Route 5, the Special Stage Route 5 is just a tad
harder. Some of the trouble spots are the sharp turn right after the beginning
of the first sector, and the REALLY sharp 180-degree turn shortly after the
beginning of the second sector.

LENGTH: 3776 Ft.


Test Course
-------------
Remember what I said about Super Speedway being the easiest course to race on?
Well, forget it: The Test Course is the easiest in the game. It's so easy, in
fact, that you can take the entire course at full speed. Simple. :)

LENGTH: 5242 Ft.


Deep Forest Raceway
---------------------
Again, another course from the original GT. This is a relativly eay track, but
maybe that's because I've played the original GT way too much. ;) All you have
to do is slow down around the first three 180-degree turns, and you'll be fine.

LENGTH: 3580 Ft.


€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€

 05. FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€¨€

===============================================================================
1. Q: How many cars are there in GT3?
===============================================================================

There are over 100 cars, but check the "Car Information" section at the beginning
of the FAQ for the full list.


===============================================================================
2. Is there a way to turn down the background sound effects and turn up the
   volume of the background music or vice versa?
===============================================================================

In a short answer, no. All you can do is toggle those settings on and off, but
you cannot adjust the volume of them.


===============================================================================
3. Q: Are there more than 2 car views?
===============================================================================

No, there are only the 2 default views (First Person and behind the car). You
cannot adjust the view like in Gran Turismo 1 & 2. This does indeed bite.


===============================================================================
4. Q: Is there an option to add Racing Modifications to your car like in GT1 &
      GT2?
===============================================================================

Sorry, but I don't think there is a racing modification option in GT3, since 
there are less cars, and it took over 2 years for the developers to make each 
car life- like, and making them with racing mods would probably take at least 
another year to do, and I don't think Sony wanted that to happen. Sorry.


===============================================================================
5. Q: What's your recommendation for a first car?
===============================================================================

We suggest either going with the Toyota Sprinter Trueno or a Mazda Miata, since
they are both almost equal and cheap. However, with the Trueno, you'll have
more cash leftover, so you can use that to upgrade it more than you could with
the Miata. OrochiJin bought a Miata, and I (Nemesis) got a Trueno, if you 
wanted to know...


===============================================================================
6. Any suggestions for a way to get fast cash?
===============================================================================

Well, if you have a pretty fast Turbo-charged car, you can enter the Beginner
League, then the Turbo Challenge, then race on the Test Track (2 laps), and
if you win, you get 5,000 credits. However, this is VERY boring, and you need
a fast car, since you race against Skylines, 3000GTs, etc.

Here's a tip from IGN.com:

The quickest way that we've found is to enter the Amateur League German Touring
Car Challenge. It's a five race series with only three laps per race, so it can
be completed in less than 20 minutes. You need to finish first in the first
four races, earning 10,000 credits per race, then save your game. Enter the
fifth and final race and simply quit out of it to end the series. If you
finished first in the first four races, you'll win the series, more prize money
(30,000 Cr.) and one of four random prize cars. If you get the Opel Astra
Touring Car, you can sell it for 245,000 credits, thus bringing your 20-minute
prize total to 315,000 credits. Doing this, you can net yourself about 900,000
credits per hour.


===============================================================================
7. Q: Are there any codes?
===============================================================================

Here's how to open up Professional Mode in Arcade Mode:

Go into Arcade Mode, and select the Difficulty Level. Bring the cursor and over
the "Hard" option. Hold R1 and L1, then press "X", and Professional Mode will
open up!


===============================================================================
8. Q: Can you re-race certain races and win the same car all over again, then
      sell it for easy cash like in Gran Turismo 2?
===============================================================================
You  can win cars again from circuits, from say, the Japanese Championship, but
you  can't  win  cars  again  from  the Sunday Cup or any other race like that.
Basically, no, you can't win the same car for most races, since you have to re-
race the entire series of races to earn that car again. You don't get 1 car for
1 race in GT3. You get 1 car for a series of races (anywhere from 4 races to 10
races).  It  kinda  sucks,  and most of the time, you get a random car, so it's
tough to get the same car you can sell...

===============================================================================
9. Q: Should I turn the TCS and ASM controls on or off when playing?
===============================================================================

A response from Chamcham (GT3 Message Board):

My advice is to turn it completely off in general. This will give you a more 
realistic sense of how each car can handle, and how far you can push it's speed 
and traction envelope.

If you encounter a particularly unruly beast, this may be a good time to 
implement the TCS and ASM in small increments. Some MR cars tend to be a little 
screwy on corners, and some FR cars can be just downright naughty when they are 
heavily modified.

Another place where these features might be use full is when you are racing in 
a series that has tire wear. You want to drive as smooth as possible, so you 
can extend your tires life-time. You may want to increase your TCS or ASM to 
reign in your car on those corners where you need more traction.
