 ° Selecting the best car °
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
For Beginner's Class, there are several good choices when it comes down to
what car you should use and stick with throughout the mode at the start of
your game (or even the entire game). Some are obvious choices, but some can be
suprising. Here are my top picks for default cars:

1.) Toyota MR2 (SW20)
2.) Subaru Impreza WRX STi Version VI (GC8)
3.) Nissan Silvia (S14)
4.) Nissan 180SX (RPS13)

I personally went with the Toyota MR2, but every car listed above is very
good, and it doesn't make too big of a difference on which vehicle you use.


___________________________
 ° Manual or Automatic? °
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
This question has haunted every racing fan's dreams ever since the racing
genre has existed. One answer would be Manual, and all "hardcore" gamers
use Manual, since "automatic sux". I disagree. I might use Manual in some
games like Gran Turismo 2, but in a tiny handheld game like this, one with
a digital pad and a small-ass track, I definitely suggest using the Automatic
transmission at all times. Driving around the courses flawlessly is difficult
enough, but adding the fact that you have to shift up and down at the same
time is just insane.

___________
 ° Tips °
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
• Take as straight of a path as possible. The courses are usually very narrow,
  and hitting the side of the course will cause you to either stop, slow down
  immensely, or to just spin out. Practice on the tracks beforehand to get
  a feel for them, so you can better navigate them during a real race.

• Don't bump into other cars. Just like Ridge Racer, bumping into other cars,
  especially from behind, will turn into bumper cars, causing you to slow down,
  and making the other car(s) shoot forward and away from you.

• Once you've tuned up a car and won some races with it, stick with that car.
  Don't waste your time on a car that you won't use past the Beginner Class,
  because after you've tuned it up a few times, it'll be shameful to just
  toss it away and get a new car. Focus on one car, and tune it to the max
  by winning races.
