        Well, this FAQ is hardly complete, but as I have just
        let it sit there for near a month, I decided to get it
        decent enough to post on other sites. If you have any
        info, or can fill in the "???", please e-mail me at
        kmfdm@technonet.com.

                 The ratings I give the animals are very
                 general, and are just to give an idea of
                 what can stand up to what in a race.

             "Price" is it's cost in the store.
             "Found" is where it can be found, store or course.
             "Value" is my rating of the item. In other words how good
             it is.
             "Desc." is the item's description.

             ___EGGS___
             Price: N/A
             Found: Course Only
             Value: Varies. W/ Louies Very Good. W/ Tirras Decent.
             Desc.: With Louies eggs give you a speed boost. With
                    Tirras eggs make you temporarily invincable.

             ___ROCKET BOMB___
             Price: ???
             Found: Course and Shop
             Value: Great. Definitly a keeper.
             Desc.: This item is a heat seeking missle. The higher you
                    charge it, the faster it will go.

             ___REMOTE CONTROL BOMB___
             Price: ???
             Found: Course and Shop
             Value: Decent, but not very practical.
             Desc.: When you lay this bomb you can set it off whenever
                    you want. You can see it's location on the map for
                    reference. It's is more or less useless in this game
                    as there is no way to know that the enemy is close
                    enough to the bomb when you set it off to do any
                    damage. It's more luck then anything else.

             ___POWER BOMB___
             Price: ???
             Found: Course and Shop
             Value: Eh. It's better than nothing.
             Desc.: Because of the nature of the item

           I have maps of some of the courses available for use. It may or
           may not be up on gamefaqs.com, but you should always be able to
           find it on my homepage at:
           http://www.technonet.com/~kmfdm/

           NOTE: At this time I only have the map of Bomber Circut complete.

           The maps and strategies should apply to the Mirrored courses too,
           but I will have to make the ticket price + victory money list for
           them seperate.

            1st: 100
            2nd:  70
            3rd:  50

            100 Coin Bonus: 300

            This is the easiest course in the game. There is little variation
            to it, and no traps. Just make sure you keep ahead of the rest of
            the racers, and use the catapult on the wall near the end of the
            course.                   

            When playing the Bonus stage, go for time, not the Coin Bonus. You
            can make 800+ easy, but the coins only give you a measly 300.

            100 Coin Bonus: 500

            Welcome to Bomber Coaster Lake! This is the first course to have
            jumps and various "traps".

            Like in Bomber Circut go for Time, not Coins, in the bonus round
            again.

              Water  - Certain stretches of this track are boarded by a cliff
                       that drops off into water. Be careful when taking
                       corners not to do something like jump off, or lose
                       control and just ride off. :)
              Jumps  - There are 2 jumps on this course you have to make. Both
                       are identical and are the easiest jumps you can think
                       of. Simply start running at full speed and jump just
                       before you hit them. If you fall you land in water and
                       get pulled out on the other side of the jump.

             ------------
            [ Short Cuts ]
             ------------
              There is one shortcut in this level. Make sure to get the
              catapult, then while zooming forward jump over the fountains and
              the railing onto the small strip of land, and run along it till
              you can jump off on to the main road.

            Waca Island can be a pain for some people, but incredibly easy
            for others. I dunno why. It's easy as hell for me, but both my
            brother and friend hate the level with a passion. My suggestion
            is use Tirras here so you have a little bit more control. Unless
            of course you wanna make one of the shortcuts(which isn't
            neccesary at all), then use a Louie.

            In this course, whether to go for time or coins in the bonus
            stage is a pure judgement call. Either way you get about the
            same.

              Water  - What is that poem? Water, water everywhere... uh,
                       well thats really all of the poem that applies here.
                       Being this is an island, there is lots of water, but
                       the course is pretty easy so unless you mess up on
                       taking a shortcut it shouldn't be a problem.

             ------------
            [ Short Cuts ]
             ------------
              This level has 2 shortcuts. Shortcut one is a cave behind some
              water roughly 1/3 of the way through the course. Shortcut number
              two involves Tri-Jumping between the pillars sticking out of the
              water just before the pirate ship.

            I really suck at this level for some reason, so am not really
            sure what to say about it. I suggest use Louies though, so that
            you don't risk falling from the jumps, as they set you back
            substantially.

              Ice   - The ice makes you slide around near uncontrollably.
                      Try to stay on the snow whenever possible, and make
                      sure you don't slide off into the water.
              Water - Like many other courses there are some parts of this
                      course that borders water, and combined with the ice
                      this can be a pain. 
              Jumps - Unlike the earlier jumps in Bomber Coast, these don't
                      drop you in water, but in a stretch of course below.
                      See the maps for more details.

              Well, I see the shortcut but I have no clue how to get to it.

            100 Coin Bonus: 2000

            This level is really fun! Tons of traps, but they are all cool.

            Go for coins in this level's bonus stage. The 2000 gold far outweighs
            anything you can get from time bonuses.

              Lightning - There are electrical currents flowing between some
                          coils on the wall on one stretch. Simple enough to
                          get by. Simply jump over the low ones, and run 
                          under the high ones.
              The Alien - Well, in one open corridor there is an alien obssessed
                          with blasting you for no apparent reason. If you see
                          he is going to be in your way, run along the left
                          side as he almost never shoots anything that will hit
                          you there. Just remember not to run into the wall at
                          the end of the left side. :) It happens all the
                          time... 

             ------------
            [ Short Cuts ]
             ------------
              There is one shortcut in this level, at a point where a large loop
              starts, in the form of a small tunnel off to the side. Take the
              course slow once to find it, then use it from then on.

            100 Coin Bonus: 3000

            This is my level of choice to earn cash. Easy to win with any of
            the later animals, and an easy 4500 each race. Just take both
            the shortcuts and learn not to fall off the sides and you will
            find this level to have a huge cash flow.

            Definitly go for the Coins in the Bonus Stage in this level. 

             -------
            [ Traps ]
             -------
              Mines       - The course's first sharp turn is loaded with mines.
                            Either run through the clear path, or go around the
                            side.
              Pit         - Alongside the bridge after the Mine Turn there are
                            pits on either side. Also, there is a pit inside the
                            cavern/temple place immediatly after.
              Waterfall   - Later in the course there is a waterfall, and if you
                            aren't careful the current will drag you off. Simply
                            dash through it, or stay on the 2 stone platforms in
                            the center.
              Wind Bridge - After the stage's catapult there is a bridge, with
                            wind blowing trying to knock you off. There really
                            is little threat to being blown off for players
                            with any experience. The bigger problem is when the
                            wind pushes you over just enough you run into the
                            wall and flatten yourself.

             ------------
            [ Short Cuts ]
             ------------
              Two shortcuts here. The first is when you enter the cavern near the
              beginning, run along the thin strip rather than going around. My
              suggestion is charge at full speed straight down it, and when it
              goes crooked just jump over the gap instead of trying to turn and
              risking falling. The other shortcut may not be considered one by
              some. At one point you have the choice of dropping into water, or
              jumping over it on to more ground. The player's natural inclination
              is to try to make the jump. My suggestion is fall down to the water,
              not jump over it, then use your Stamnia to run forward so you don't
              lose speed in the water. This can put you in first a lot of times!

                 an insane 150,000!!

             Easy Money
               - Save your game in a second file, then go to Vs. and
                 load that file as the 2p file. You can then keep getting
                 money by betting the max, then beating the 2p "fake" file
                 to get the wager for your "real" file. This actually can
                 take longer than racing if you don't have high enough
                 money already to make substantial bets.
