This will be my first FAQ so it won't be long, but there is no other TD4

                                CARS
 note-the rating is using stars, 1 star means terrible, 4 stars is
Excellent

 1.1-The Viper is definitely a car for beginners. I don't recommend this
for people who know how to brake and power slide through corners. But it
is heavy so it can go through a lot of punishment before flipping.
 Weight-3440 pounds
 Acceleration-** (0-60mph:4.6 seconds)
 Handling-***
 Max Speed-** (185 mph)

 1.2-The '98 corvette is also a car made pretty much for beginners also
but
it would be a step ahead from the Viper because it is a more difficult.
 Weight-3245 pounds
 Acceleration-** (0-60mph:4.7 seconds)
 Handling-**
 Max Speed-* (155 mph)

 1.3-The Jaguar has a excellent max speed and quickly overcome the
competition but beware, at top speeds the handling is below average.
This car is for players who can handle this intense ride and who plan to
win.
 Weight-3025 pounds
 Acceleration-***(0-60mph:3.8 seconds)
 Handling-***(at low speeds),*(at top speeds)
 Max Speed-**** (218 mph)

 1.4-The Cerbera is a all around good car for people with the basic
strategies and use powersliding to there advantage.
 Weight-2315
 Acceleration-*** (0-60mph:4.2 seconds)
 Handling-***
 Max Speed-** (185 mph)

 1.5-The Nissan 300ZX is a car for all tracks. Good acceleration, good
speed, and excellent handling for taking on those tough corners. A MUST
for beginners.
 Weight-2,500
 Acceleration-** (0-60mph:4.5 seconds)
 Handling-****
 Max Speed-**   (181 mph)

 1.6-The Shelby Cobra is definitely a car people above beginner but not
that great.
This car can smoke the competition at the beginning of the race with
great Acceleration but with it's lack of speed you might have trouble
winning on high speed tracks like D.C.
 Weight-2529 pounds
 Acceleration-**** (0-60mph:3.5 seconds)
 Handling-***
 Max Speed-** (187 mph)

 1.7-The Chevelle is not a car I recommend unless you are a master at
racing. It is possible to win (I have), but it takes time to get used
to. Give this car a shot after you have mastered the Jaguar. This car is
extremely heavy so have some fun and see how many cars you can flip
before you do!
 Weight-3885
 Acceleration-* (0-60mph:4.4 seconds)
 Handling-**
 Max Speed-*** (184 mph)

 1.8-The Cuda is a very difficult car to drive with terrible
Acceleration and low Max speed. You'll have a tough time winning with
this one, that's for sure.
 Weight-3400
 Acceleration-no star(s) (0-60mph:5.0 seconds)
 Handling-**
 Max Speed-* (175 mph)

 1.9-The Camaro is a moderately heavy car with great top speed. Wish I
could say the same for the handling, though. The acceleration is great
0-30, but after that it just plain sucks.
 Weight-3070 pounds
 Acceleration-* (0-60mph:4.2 seconds)
 Handling-*
 Max Speed-**** (205 mph)

 1.10-The '69 Corvette is a great cars for veterans who look forward to
joy riding on San Francisco.
 Weight-3150 pounds
 Acceleration-*** (0-60mph:4.3 seconds)
 Handling-*** (Great for jumps and bumps)
 Max Speed-*** (202 mph)

 1.11-Some of you might wonder how this car got in the FAQ. Most people
don't know this, there is a newer version of TD4-Version 1.2, and most
people have version 1.0. If you want this and better sound effects and
highscores, go to http://www.accolade.com/products/td4/updates.htm
There's no L at the end. Then just download the patch. This will give
you a version 1.2
 Weight-3480 pounds
 Acceleration-** (0-60mph:4.7 seconds)
 Handling-**
 Max Speed-**** (193 mph)

  1.12-This Viper GTS-R has blistering speed. The R means racer so it is
lighter than the original from the weight reduction stage from Dodge. If
you don't know what I'm even talking about, just ignore it. To get it,
see secrets.
 Weight-2670 pounds
 Acceleration-**** (0-60mph:3.2seconds)
 Handling-***
 Max Speed-****************************** (225+mph!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

  1.13-The Dodge Daytona is a good overall car. It's also the heaviest
car in the game at 4151 pounds! To get it, see secrets.
 Weight-4151
 Acceleration-** (0-60mph:4.5seconds)
 Handling-***
 Max Speed-**** (201 mph)

  1.14-The 12/7 is the best overall car in the game with good
everything. To get it,
see secrets.
 Weight-2315 pounds
 Acceleration-**** (0-60 mph:3.0 seconds)
 Handling-****
 Max Speed-**** (220mph!!!)

  1.5-This may lack speed but once you learn how to suck every
horsepower out of this 800HP beast, you'll win every race. This thing
has the best handling and acceleration in the game. Be careful, it will
easily flip. To get it, see secrets.
 Weight-1600 pounds
 Acceleration-**** (0-60mph:1.5seconds)
 Handling-****
 Max Speed-* (170mph)

                                          TRACKS

being for expert.
        When I list the best cars I don't include secret cars.
        I only list reguler tracks because I don't have enough
time.Sorry

level.You even get to drive through a mall!**
      Best cars- '98Corvette, 300ZX, Cobra, Chevelle, Cuda, '69Corvette,
GTO

  2.4-This is a moderately easy course. It seems there's a lot more cars
and police cars.**
      Best cars-'98Corvette, Jaguar, 300ZX, Chevelle, Cuda, Camaro,
'69Corvette

  2.5-This is probably the hardest track in the game, the best thing to
is try to stay in the middle atleast in the beggining of the race.***
      Best cars-Viper, 300ZX,Cobra, '69Corvette

  2.6-This is a track only for the PC version. It's a easy track but
some might find it difficult.**
      Best cars-I can win with any car but try to make your own "best
cars"
---------------------------------------------
                                          MODES
  3.1-Single race-need I say more?

  3.2-In Challenge Cup they tally up your entirer time on ALL (first 5)
the tracks and if your time is the lowest you win the Challenge Cup and
recieve the Dodge Daytona.

  3.3-In Championship Cup you earn points for each race (first 5), and
if you win the Championship Cup you recieve the TVR 12/7.

  3.4-In Pitbull Cup you must finish first on each track. Pick your car
wisely,I prefer you win the Championship Cup and use the 12/7. If you
win you recieve the Viper GTS-R.

  3.5-The Masters Cup is the same as Challenge cup but you must use
DIFFERENT CAR EACH TIME! If you win you recieve the Pitbull Special.

  3.6-You race a 1/4 mile dragstrip, you must use manual gear.

  3.1-Go to the options menu, select SAVE GAME and type one (or one
after the other) in slot 10. You will hear a horn if entered correctly.
