SHAGETH83 NOTES
Shageth83 gave me these car setups.  The thanks go to Shaggy whose original 
postings 
are located in the General Discussion forum in the NASCAR Thunder 2004 Message 
Boards.  The topic of discussion is titled: "Setups for Career".  You can also find 
the setups as one of the FAQs at cheatcodes.com.  These are the notes he wrote.

CALIFORNIA
Change the 4th gear to get max speed for your car only ONE increment at a time.  
This is close but not exactly what I had my rookie year.

INFINEON
This track is about consistency.  You need to tack every turn the same way.  I hate 
this track but usually spend 5 or 6 laps of practice just to get in the groove.  
Also I get single file as soon as possible, even if I'm on the pole.  I'll let the 
outside guy go if he's beside me.  Get single file then start picking them off.  
They break alot earlier than I do on both road courses which is why I'm so fast at 
them and how I won my rookie year on these tracks on veteran level.

LAS VEGAS
This setup nearly lapped the whole field on Legend.  Depending on your motor, 
adjust 
the gear accordingly.

MARTINSVILLE
Martinsville is MAINLY about getting into the corner and off.  When you nail that 
you'll leave the competition, and the setup won't matter as much as other tracks.
