    ADVANCED CAR ABILITIES:

        Quick start
            When in time attack mode, hold R2 + L2 at the start to get a speed
            boost from the instant light turns green.

        Select car number
            Complete (you do not have to win) the 99 Endurance Race. The game
            will change your car number to 01 and unlocks a new feature that
            allows you to select your car number. 

    MISCELLANEOUS TRICKS:

        Control the Intro 
            Press L1 and R1 during the introduction sequence with the girl
            walking down the street during a race to cycle through three
            different effects for the portion that uses the in-game graphics.
            Press R1 for black and white graphics. Press R1 a second time and
            the graphics will have a yellow tint. Press R1 a third time to
            add blur effect, which will eliminate jagged graphics. Press L1
            to cycle back through the various effects.

        Some Fun Useless Information On the Screen
            When you are racing in the third person view, hold Select to show
            information onscreen that includes the amount of pressure you are
            using on the controller buttons.

        Alternate saved game icon
            When you start your game you'll notice that your Memory Card Icon
            is of a car. Once you've beaten and unlock everything the icon will
            evolve into Ai Fukami.

        Familiar Names To Beat
            Go to the Highscore screen and notice the names holding some of the
            top positons. You may recognize some names from some other Namco 
            Games such as Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere, Names like Rena, Fiona,
            Dision… Yeah, I know it's not really a cheat or a code, but it's 
            kind of neat. 

        Extra Music Tracks
            Exceed more than 765Km's and you will get new tracks from 
            MJIK VAN DJIK.
            
        Big Ban

            one to work please contact me.
