Conserve Memory Card Slots

Play the game in arcade mode, exit, then enter simulation mode and save the game. By doing this, the arcade and simulation mode information is saved together, cutting the amount of memory card slots used by half.

Memory Card Battle With Only One Card

Enter memory card battle mode. A message will appear stating that player one is loading and that no memory card was found for player two. Wait until the information has loaded for player one, then remove the memory card and insert it into the second memory card slot. The game will load data from that location and allow both players to participate in the memory card battle.

Duplicate Parts

Purchase two identical cars. They may be given different color schemes if desired. Buy as many parts as desired for the first car. View the list of fitted parts of the first car from the garage. Then switch to the second car, get inside, and view its fitted parts list, which should be empty. While remaining in the second car, enter a spot race. At the qualify options, select "Machine Setting", then "Change Parts". All the parts from the first car should be available. Exit the race and return to the garage. View the list of fitted parts for both cars to see that all desired parts have been duplicated. Note: Only items available on the "Change Parts" menu may be duplicated. This trick will not work on cars that have been awarded.
