Overview (FDKF) This is just about the game and how I got it and how I wrote this FAQ. Now, I love cars. Any type, any model, any color. I wanted something that looked good and was fast. Need for Speed Underground 2 didn't quench my thirst for speed, since many of those cars can barely make it past 200MPH. Gran Turismo 4 didn't quench my thirst either, because all of the cars looked like my grandma bought them. Now, I am a full contributor on Gamefaqs. I have four FAQs and use the message boards frequently. At the time, I had one FAQ. I was going to check up on it, when I saw this ad for Midnight Club 3. I looked at the ad because I thought it looked cool. But, then, the ad said, "Customize over 50 cars,". I looked at the list, and I saw Lamborghini. That really caught my attention. Now, my birthday was coming up. I was grilling my mom to get the game. I finally got it, it came as a present. I tried it out. I instantly loved it. I was stuck on a part, though. So, I went to Gamefaqs for some advice. All I saw were FAQs with pictures, none using real text and giving advice. I was purely shocked. I thought then, I'm gonna make a FAQ for this. I had a little wimpy FAQ, which of course got rejected. After a weeks worth of refining, I finally made a good FAQ, which got accepted. Then, the flow of E-mails started instantly. This I expected because I had the only FAQ if that game, and it was a new game. I was happy. But then, disaster fell. I was playing, and it suddenly kicked off. I spent a week trying to fix it, but nothing worked. I finally had an intense cleaning session, and I finally fixed it. The story you have just read is the success story of this FAQ. ======================================================================= /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/ ======================================================================= 5.) Real World Help (DAHK) Now, car games have to make the cars in their games like they are in real life (or the car company will kick the game maker's ass). This section discusses that. --- Now, let's start off with weight. Of course, luxary sedans, trucks, and SUVs will have terrible handling because of their heavy weight. Tuners and exotics are increadibly light, so they probably will spin out even if you hit a mailbox (this is especially true with exotics). Sport Bikes and Choppers have good handling, because you can lean into turns and take them better, since you only have two wheels to worry about. The problem with two wheeled vehicles, though, is that they're EXTREMELY light, making it easier to fall off, resulting in huge time loss. Muscle cars are OK, nothing bad to say about them. The only thing you can say is that they aren't the masters in really anything, since their engine and stuff is from a non-advanced era of car making. --- Let's view price now. Exotics will be EXTREMELY expensive, because they are so powerful and so rare. Tuners, Muscle cars, Trucks, and SUVs will be cheaper because you're not really paying for much. Choppers for some reason are kind of expensive. Sport Bikes, though, are EXTREMELY cheap and you can buy them for less than 20,000$. --- Let's take a look at performance and tuning. Of course, we all know the lower the car, the less air resistance you get? That's why it is good to put on bumpers that ride low and lower your car's ride height to as low as it can go. This helps with handling, mostly, but it can affect speed. Putting air pockets, getting a hood that lets air pass through, and getting a spoiler are all important for aerodynamics. --- Let's talk about wheels. The more rubber on the ground, the better. What you need to do is widen your tires to as wide as they can go. This seriously helps with traction. For motorcycles, make sure the tires you get for your motorcycle has lots of grooves, so it can drive better off-road. Now, make your tires as thin as possible. This helps with handling also, as all of the tire is being used, instead of a little. Use this diagram for help. To make them thin, go to tire profile in the body shop (under wheels), and make sure the tire is set to 1. An overly inflated tire looks like this... ___ // /\ | \ \ | | / / | | \ \ | \___/ As you can see, the sides of the tire can still touch the road, but, well, they arent. This is a rightly inflated tire... The rectangle is the tire LOL _____ |/ / /| |\ \ \| |/ / /| |\ \ \| |_____| As you can see, all of the tire that can be used is on the ground, making for better traction. --- Let's view jumps. In the air, there is nothing your tires can touch. This means acceleration and braking do nothing in the air. The only way you can steer your car is using in air control, discussed later in this FAQ. Now, there is a way to propel your car. If you use nitro in the air, the gas coming out of the exhaust should speed you up. --- Let's talk about crashes. Now, it's obvious you don't want to crash. You may crash sometimes, and this part discussesthat. I don't want to be too long, so i'll make a chart. 10 is the most damage, 1 is the least. Tuner|Muscle|Luxary Sedan|Truck|SUV|Exotic|Sport Bike|Chopper Cop Car 8 | 8 | 7 | 6 | 6 | 10 | 10 | 10 Cop Bike 2 | 2 | 2 | 1 | 1 | 4 | 5 | 4 Tree S. 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 3 | 5 | 5 Tree B. 10| 10 | 10 | 10 | 10| 10 | 10 | 10 Side Stuff 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 2 Car 4 | 4 | 3 | 2 | 2 | 6 | 7 | 7 Pickup T. 4 | 4 | 3 | 2 | 2 | 7 | 8 | 8 Van 5 | 4 | 4 | 3 | 3 | 8 | 9 | 9 Dump T. 9 | 9 | 9 | 8 | 8 | 10 | 10 | 10 Snow T. 8 | 8 | 8 | 7 | 7 | 10 | 10 | 10 Bus 9 | 9 | 8 | 8 | 8 | 10 | 10 | 10 Semi 10| 10 | 10 | 10 | 10| 10 | 10 | 10 Side stuff means the stuff on the sidewalks, tree B. means those trees that you can't destroy, Dump T. Means those Green Onyx trucks you see, and Snow T. Are snow trucks with a plow in the front.. As you can see, Exotics, Sport Bikes, and Choppers take immense damage, while Trucks and SUVs take little damage. --- (Submitted by araikon69...) the more tire space on the ground (actual area on the ground) the better...When a tire is in motion any part of the tire that is being used either in accelerating or breaking is NOT used while steering IE if your putting the brakes on 40 percent of the way, you only have 60 percent of the actual tire that will be used for turning, Therefore by reducing your tire size you are actually reducing the brakes, acceleration, and cornering ability of any car. What he's trying to say is keep the tire width at 355mm. ======================================================================= /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/ ======================================================================= 6.)

Races (DHJN) Here are all of the types of races found in Arcade mode. Autocross- A circuit race where barriers are used instead of checkpoints. The competitor with the best lap time wins. Track- Same as autocross, but you race other people at the same time instead of trying to beat their times. Capture the Flag- Cars race to get a flag shown on the map, and then bring it back to base. Other cars can steal the flag by ramming the car who has it. Paint- Checkpoints are laid out all over the city. When a car crosses a checkpoint, it gets painted in the color the car was given. Other cars may paint over other people's paint. Cruise- Just roaming the city. Frenzy- A race where you race without brakes or special powers. What you have to do is dodge cars and get points. You get a boost of Nitro every fifteen seconds. You keep going until time runs out. Ordered- A race where you race through a series of checkpoints. Each checkpoint must be passed in the correct order to win. Most career races are ordered. Circuit- Same as ordered except there are many laps running through the same checkpoints until the race is over. Tag- The last car to reach a checkpoint is it. Cars score points on how close they are to the it car. Unordered- Same as ordered, except you can run through the checkpoints in any order you want. Here are the race catagories for career mode. City race- A single race where you get easy money. Symbolized on the map by a red dot. Club race- A race where you need a specific car to enter. Symbolized on the map by a yellow star. Tournament- A series of races where the person with the most points wins. Symbolized on the map by a golden trophy. Street racer- A race where a street racer leads you to a race and you begin racing. The racer is symbolized on the map by a blue arrow. ======================================================================= ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ======================================================================= 11.) Power Ups (CBVZ) Here are the power-ups (found in arcade mode). Disrupter- Blurres a car's vision. Go- Disables a car's brakes. Ice- Makes it seem like the car is driving on ice. Nitro- Adds a nitro boost to your reservoir. Pulse- Pushes opponents away from you. Quad Damage- Makes a car take four times the impact he would normally take, meaning he will eventually have to reset himself, resulting in huge gain of time. Reverse steering- Switches around steering controls for an opponent. Shield- Makes you immune to power ups. Also prevents you from losing the flag in capture the flag mode. Stealth- Makes you invisible and invincible for a couple seconds. Stop- Engages an opponents brake and handbrake instantly. ======================================================================= ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ======================================================================= 12.) Powers (FJNS) Each class of car has a special power. These powers will be discussed here. *Roar ==== Muscle cars and choppers have it. What it does is it sends out a sound wave that knocks all other cars out of the way. Useful for sending civilian cars into other racers, also for clearing any spots where traffic will obviously be a problem. Meter charges when you pull off drifts. Activated by pressing L3 when fully charged. *Agro ===== SUVs, trucks, and luxary sedans have it. What it does is make the car impervious to damage, and it also sends any car you hit miles away. Useful for sending civilian cars into other racers, also for sending other racers into walls and stuff. Meter charges when you hit traffic and anything on the sidewalks. Activated by pressing L3 when fully charged. *Zone ===== Tuners, Sportbikes and Exotics have it. What it does is slow down time, making it easier to maneuver through small spaces. Useful for weaving through traffic and small spaces. Meter charges when you drive without hitting anything. Activated by pressing L3 when fully charged. Slipstream Turbo ================ All vehicles have it. What it does is give you a quick burst of speed. Useful for speeding ahead of opponents. Meter charges when you drive closely behind an opponent car. Activated by pressing R2 when fully charged. Two Wheel Driving ================= All vehicles except motorcycles have this. What it does is transfer your weight to one side, allowing you to drive on two wheels. Also prevents other opponents getting a slipstream turbo off slipstreaming your car. Useful for getting through tight spaces, and preventing other cars from getting a slipstream turbo. This is available without charging. Activated by pressing L1 and pushing the left analog stick left or right. Weight Transfer =============== Motorcycles have this. What it does is lean you into a turn, making it easier to turn. Useful for getting through turns fast. This is available without charging. Activated by holding the L1 button while taking a turn. In-Air Control ============== All vehicles have this. What it does is tilt your vehicle in the air so it can have a better landing. Useful for gaining speed after a jump. This is available without charging. Activated by holding the L1 button and tilting the left analog stick. Drifting ======== All vehicles have this. What it does is slide your vehicle through a turn. Useful for taking turns faster. THis is available without charging. Activated by tilting the right analog stick in the direction you want to go and pressing the R1 button. *This can only be gained by winning a certain club race. ======================================================================= ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ======================================================================= 13.)

Tips (DSLK) Here are some tips to get you through the game. *If you mess up bad during a race, keep going. With decent distance, you can still catch him. In those situations, use your special powers, use nitro (if you have it), and get a slipstream turbo. *Watch for red lights. They mean danger. *For some reason, even if you have the same car as the other person, you can still go faster. *Making your car cool isn't as important as performance. It's better to have a car that looks like it came from your grandma's garage that goes 200MPH than one of those cars rappers roll in that is slow as a snail. *Police are the worst. They set up road blocks (meaning they block a road, although you can get around that), ram you into walls, and cut you off. if your speedometer is flashing red and blue, you have a cop on your tail.Try ramming the cops into the walls. Also, some of the cops are in motorcycles, so you can knock them off easily. *Hold R1 and X at the start line. Then, let go as the race starts. Why? Your car will start out at 60 MPH instead of 0 that way! *Some tuning parts are only available to certain car classes. *You can't slipstream motorcycles. From Kurtcobain856... *I'd recommend to anyone buying the Lancer Evolution vIII when it is availible. it handles very good and is the cheapest of the class C Tuners. From big_upps... *For a really good boost of speed be sure to get a nice slipstream, and then when that runs out, hit nitro. If you're on a bike, then do a wheelie. That's like ultra mega speed boost. *when you are in the second city, get all the club races and then take, say, the 300C and go back to the first city. Since your familar with that city, it's gonna be alot easier in the club races. From rio_fire... *If you go to garages and select manage vehicle, you can duplicate it as many times as you want. After that, you just rename it and it will show-up in arcade under the name that you gave it. So, you can make 6 differently decked out Evo's and race them against each other. Also, make sure you wait to duplicate until you have everything that you want for that vehicle. If you don't wait then you will have too either not do anything to the car or buy the parts for each version separately. Remember, just because the vehicle can be customized or upgraded further in an area doesn't mean that it needs to be, Example: '68 GTO has the speed it needs w/o the 2nd upgrade for it's class but it does need more handling, so if it has too much speed for its handling then leave the speed alone but upgrade handling and acceleration. From reaper933... *When on a motorcycle or in a muscle car if you do a catwalk while still doing your burnout, you'll slow down when your front tire hits the ground. *When using roar on a chopper or muscle car if an opponent is near to your car it will sweep them to the side of the road like it would traffic (this is effective to make them miss jumps or to crash into a building). Roar also makes cars swerve to the side of the road, but not always away from you, so if your on the side of the road cars will swerve towards you. Roar also makes your car not turn for a second when it hits and then usually ends us in you doing a powerslide and since the computer likes to use special moves for you before or during sharp corners it can be useful to hit L3 right before corners like this(this is also the case for argo). *While in zone your car actually handles better but if you turn in too sharply when you come out of zone, your car won't be moving as fast as it noramlly would. *It is usful to save nitro fo crucial times in the race when you hit other vehicles or walls so you can get back up to speed very quickly. *The class of car you get affects how many nitros you can receive. *I find that a slipstream turbo allows you to stay at a high top speed longer than nitros which brings you back down to speed quicker but with a slipstream turbo corners and hitting objects slow you down more than nitros. *The best tuners, muscle cars, choppers, and SUV/trucks end in class B. There are only sport bikes and exotics in class A. From drag0nrick... *For optional races, the only thing I noticed is that you get a higher amount of money for winning them, and if you get there in time but you lose the race, you can still race it later. *Your nitro's get refilled every lap in a circuit race, so you've got a lot more nitros to use. *If you're doing optional reaces in career, you'd use the fastest vehicle that you have because then the amount of money you'll when you win is higher. From eellyy... *Also I have noticed something with the game...I played at a friend's house and got up to around 30% then I bought the game when I went home. I had to beat everything all over again. I recomend beating as many of the category races as you can (unbeatable street racers, etc.) before upgrading to newer cars etc. I made the mistake of getting a gto before I won any of the muscle car races, and now they are all really a lot harder. *I unlocked pearlescent paint in San Diego. I think if you hold off on beating Vanessa the 2nd set of races, until you have won as many club races as you can (and I won a lot of them, more than half of each) you can stay in San Diego a lot longer and things stay easier. From Khabibuln... * If you hit another car or wreck and your car comes to a complete stop, burnout (R1 + X) for a second or two rather than just pressing X to accelerate. This will cause you start off anywhere up to 60mph, seriously cutting back on the acceleration time and the time it takes to get up to top speed. *I found that it's better not to spend money on new cars until you unlock class B (unless there is a car you are just dying to own). You will win one of each class of car (luxury sedan, chopper, muscle car, etc.) in the tournament races in San Diego and Atlanta and should have no problem getting to Detroit with these cars. *Going along with tip #1, If you have nitro boosts left it doesn't hurt to use one after you burnout. this should be enough to catch up with the cars in the rear of the pack. Then it's just a matter of using slipstream turbo to catch up with the leader. *At the starting line when you hold R1 and X to burnout, try letting go of R1 for just an instant then press and hold it again really fast. If you do it correctly you should hear you tires squeal at a higher pitch and you car will leave the starting line and instantly accelerate up to 40mph more than just holding x E.g. I am in San Diego with a 300c with all level 2 upgrades. With a normal burnout (just pressing x) I start off with a pause in acceleration around 60mph. When I do the quick release and press on R1 I leave the starting line and instantly accelerate to 95mph. From Enilnomi29... *Everybody talks about selling cars, but you never have to. I beat the game without selling a single car because you win so many. And no, I didn't use any of the city races. I used all career to get my money. The only cars I had to buy were SRT4, 69 Camaro, 98 Supra, and the McLaren F1 LM. All the rest were won. *A little tip if you guys didn't know, never quit a race just 'cause you aren't winning. Get to know the course. You still get money up to third place, though. From Gx Viper... *EASY WIN IN DETROIT TOURNAMENT(CADILLAC CIEN): (UPON ENTERING I SUGGEST YOU USE THE KAWASAKI NINJA ZX-12R,THE BIKE YOU WIN IN THE SPORTBIKE RACES) WHEN YOU FIRST START AT ANY STRAIGHTAWAY PULL A WHEELIE, THAT WAY YOU GO SUPER FAST! IN OTHER TERMS FROM 0-175MPH IN 5 SECONDS! BUT BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU ENTER A TURN, LAND BEFORE YOU GO THROUGH IT.THAT SHOULD GIVE YOU EASY WINS IN THE RACES FOR THE TOURNAMENT.BELIEVE ME...YOU WILL GET A FAST ASS CAR @ THE END!! From CoolGangsta... *There is a race in Atlanta called Back and There, you can do that race over and over again for about 10 times and it is always on the same location. Common price-money is 1,800$. ======================================================================= <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< ======================================================================= 14.) A Good Way to Start (NCSX) Here is a good way to start the game. Okay, now, lets start off by buying a car. I think we should buy the Dodge SRT-4. We need something that can accelerate, after all. Then, buy as many parts as you can with the money left over, just make sure they're performance parts. Then, you get rocketed into a race. This shouldn't be too hard, since you have the car with the best acceleration there. After that, challenge Bishop (find him on the map) to a race. Beat his crew, then win the tournament. You get a Chrysler 300C, DUB edition. This is important, because it performs nicely, and looks SWEET! Now, this isn't tuned, so take the money from the tournament and tune the Chrysler. You shouldn't need parts to make it look good, so that's some money saved. Then, do the same with Carlos. He has a muscle car, so better watch out. Once he's done, take on the tournament. Take the '57 Belair you get and tune the crap out of it. After that, do the club races. Then, hop back into your SRT-4, and race Vanessa. Once that's done, take on the tournament, then take out the club races you can enter. After that, you should be OK! Alternative from Dancingbooger10: I found that it really helps to buy a tuner and beat Vanessa in the beginning. Then win the tournament to get the Lexus. Sell the old car for about 20,000 and upgrade the crap out of it. This should give you an excellent car to start with and allows you to easily beat other people. Alternative from big_upps: I think you should take the IS300 you win and race about 15 open (red smoke) races, save up money, tune up the IS300 as much as the game will let you, then keep using that car for all the tuner races and to gain money in the open races (I used it to the last tuner races in the second city ). And then when you need money, just go back to the first city with the IS300 and race the open races. Alternative from Hart Attack0389... personally, the hardest part of the game was beating the muscle cars portion, because i put that off until the end of the game....I would suggest starting out with a muscle car, and beating that portion first. Alternative from Wolpert_007... The easiest way to win races is to start out with the SRT4 and then win the muscle Bel Air...Tune the crap out of it and you should be on a good start. ======================================================================= <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< ======================================================================= 15.) Music (DFHS) Here are the types of music you'll be listening to. I have included the words to the first verse of a song in that group. --- Hip-hop- A rap where there's a beat you want to dance to. Ex.

A major artist in this group is T.I.. --- Rock- A more hardcore kind of music using guitars, drums, ect. Ex. Nine Inch Nails "The Hand that Feeds" You're keepin' it still, in the night, got your chin held high and you feel just fine cause you do, what you do, but inside your heart and it's black and it's hollow and it's cold! Just how deep do you believe, when you bite the hand that feeds... There is no real major, I'm just gonna put Nine Inch Nails because it's my favorite. --- Techno- A type of music where the beat is computer-generated with some lyrics to go along with it. Ex. Tek Brothers "Funktion" I didn't find lyrics for this one. A major artist in this group is The Martian. --- Drum and Bass- A type of music that has a little rhythem and a booming bass note to go along with it. No lyrics, mostly. Ex. Calyx "Follow the Leader" It goes follow the leader, hit me sync the whole song, really. A major artist in this group is Calyx. Hmmm... --- Dance Hall- A type of music that has a beat that you will want to dance to. Ex. M.I.A "Fire Fire" I really didn't understand it, but I know it started like worry not worry not, you ain't gettin changed, something like that. A major artist in this group is Bennie Man. --- There is also music you can only hear in the garage and when loading. I say WTF to this. A major artist in this group is The Ratt Pakk. --- There is also elevator music...... No, just kidding. --- My Playlist These are the songs I like. Baby A.K.A. Birdman feat. Lil' Wayne - Shyne On Fabolous - Gangsta Lil' Wayne - Go D.J. Petey Pablo - Freek-A-Leek Pitbull feat.

I Didn't Do It! (DUHS) I was bored one day. I decided to cause some destruction. Found out some tips from that little series of shenanigans, and now here's a section about it. You can do this is you're bored, or if you can't win a race. Remember to watch out! There are numerous situations where you could end up being the victim instead of the villian. The simplest one is just to ram them as hard as you can. Since these people are afraid, they might run away (they won't dodge it if you're coming at 500MPH at their side). This is only when you two are driving side by side. It's funny seeing them hit walls (or go off freeway bridges, that's funny as hell). Another is to use agro. How? Duh. Kick it up, and hit 'em dammit! A fun way to do this is to try to send them into other objects! Another way is to use roar. Don't use it on straights, it does about nothing. Use it on, say, a jump. They will miss the jump, have to go way back, accelerate, and make the jump. Too bad you're not going to be around for the hilarity! Another funny thing is to make them miss a turn. How, you ask? Well, rear end them as hard as you can before a turn. They will be going so fast, they couldn't possibly make the turn. This would also slow you down for the turn, so it's a good deal. Another good way is to get the cops on their ass. This takes a while to perfect, and doesn't always work, but it's funny to have AI cars taken down by the NYPD. Just ram them into a police car, that should do. Dende5416 found this... Try using Roar when or right before going over a free-way on the over-passes or along side it. Since there is often a break-able fence there, you can sometimes force AI opponents down into the highway. MWAHAHA ======================================================================= <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< ======================================================================= 17.)

Interactive (FDJD) Alright, this is the interactive section. What does that mean? It means you can show off the most cars you have, the most powerful car you have, the most money you had, ect. You will get all credit, but if someone sends in a better record than yours, then yours will be replaced with the better record. To destroy his record, just comply with the guidelines and beat your opponent. (F.E. You put 100,000$. Someone E-mails me that he has 200,000$ . You have to get more money than him, or you lose the spot. You may E-mail me to ask if the record is better or not) My E-mail address is TheeMikester@aol.com. And, title the E-mail Midnight Club Record, so I know what it is. Oh, and don't say you did something when you really didn't. That's just weak and cheap. If you have the same record as somebody else, they got there first and, not to be rude, I won't post yours. Sorry! Also, I am an active partaker in this, so I might be the one to beat your records. Sadpanda108 has notified me of a grave overlook I have made. The most powerful car record is capped now. I have made records for each car type. I could use some more records, but here are some to start with...

FAQs (DSGH) 1.) Q.I would like to know if you know a way I can race my cars against my brothers cars in Midnight Club 3. (Fist_82D) A. I don't think so. Try customizing it again on the other memory card. 2.) Q. I'm 83% done with the game and I still have not gotten the body upgrades for the 96 Impala. Can you tell me at what point of the game I earn those upgrades for that specific car? (Dat_one_robby) A. YOu can't earn them by percentages. You need to enter certain races to get the parts. I think the race is in San Diego. 3.) Q. When do you get spinners? (Sxyitalianguyxxx) A. After the tenth or eleventh tuner or luxary sedan club race in Atlanta. Lean more towards the luxary sedan club race. Encaenmi says... Beat Dre three times. 4.) Q. There are no more races left and I can't get the class A cars. What should I do? (Joplew) A. You need to beat to beat all four or five first racers in Detroit (I don't really remember how much racers you had to beat). This answer was supplied by Supra_Gtr_9. 5.) Q. When do I unlock the performance parts for the Viper GTS-R? I've been trying every race that I can but they won't unlock! (KingJames21) A. I'm not sure what class the Viper is, but I'm guessing a Class B Tuner. Now, you have a tuner car. Go around San Diego, Atlanta, and Detroit and make sure that you didn't miss one. What the common problem is is that people miss the club races, since, if ou don't have the car, the star is hidden in gray. Also, check for street racers. The performance parts are supposed to only be won in races. 6.) Q. Hey, I can't seem to beat the first unordered race against Lamont. How can I beat them when they know exactly where to go? (KingJames21) A. Simple. Just make sure YOU also know where to go. What you need to do is follow the lead car until you know EXACTLY where to go to finish. Then, get a slipstream turbo and pass him. 7.) Q. When do I get the 300C DUB Edition? (Inferno_Warrior) A. Beat Bishop in San Diego. Then, enter the tournament right after. After winning the tournament, you should have the 300C DUB Edition. 8.) Q. how do I get the typable codes for the cheat menu in options? (NonnieRoze1) A. Dude, I don't know. Go to Cheat Codes and Secrets under Midnight Club 3 DUB edition (this is on gamefaqs, not the game). You should find the link next to FAQs and guides. They have a whole crapload of cheats. Don't rely on them too much, though, I tried a lot of those codes and they didn't work for me. You really shouldn't need cheats, though. 9.) Q. I have now completed 30% of the game and are currently in Atlanta. I am stumped on my first SUV races, (The ones with the stars). My Cadillac Escalade has all level one parts and no matter how good or flawless I race I can't keep or catch up with the other racers. They seem to be faster than me even when I use nitrous or when I get the chance to slipstream. Can you help and maybe give me some advice? (Zues33) A. Yes, I can. Now, every time you upgrade your horsepower a certain amount, the skill level of the AI drivers changes. F.E. If you take a Hummer H1 against a Pontiac GTO, then the GTO will have little skill, although, if you take a McLaren up against a GTO, the GTO will seem like Mario Andretti's driving it. You're probably on the border. Just keep trying, and you should win. If you have problems, sell the Escalade and get a better performing SUV. If you still have problems, then just forget about the SUV races for a while and catch your breath. I had a problem, too, so your not alone. Alternatve from big_upps... Sell the esclade and buy the Benz. It's better to get skilled with the SUVS because they handle odd. Drive around the city at high speeds and just use it in all the open races as you can. You know, practice makes perfect! 10.) Q. Do you have a new walkthrough for Midnight Club 3? (russel.lester.newl) A. No, I don't. Sorry. What I do have is an assisting guide to start the game. I don't believe I have enough information to write a whole game walkthrough. I could help you out using tips, though. 11.) Q. I would like to know if the game is worth buying. (Big_diesel97) A. Actually, yes, it is. Although, in NFSU2, you have to customize cheap cars. In Midnight Club 3 DUB edition, you can do the same thing to a Mclaren as you can to a Miata in NFSU2. It's definetly worth the buy. 12.) Q. How do I give you car stats? (sadpanda103) A. Go to the garage. Then, go into the performance shop. At the bottom-left hand corner, there should be a bar graph, with numbers under it. Give me those numbers. 13.) Q. Can you unlock the police Motorcycle? (Pipechapa) A. You get the san diego bike after winning all San Diego, Atlanta, and Detroit tournaments. You also get one after completely beating the game (100%). 14.) Q. I beat both Bishop and Vanessa in the three race series, but I didn't get the cars like you said....am I doing the right thing or what? (rtaylormercer) A. Did you enter the tournaments that popped up after you beat the racers? Do that, win, and get the cars. 15.) Q. I just recieved the LexusIS300, and have put about 8,000 into it.. but with the SRT-4 I have put a lot more. I'm doing the tournament now which will unlock the 300C...whats ur opinion on what I should do? Sell Dodge SRT4, and IS300 and dump all the money into 300c? (Inferno_Warrior) A. No. You have two tuners, sell one of those. Keep the 300C and either the Lexus or the Dodge. The reason is if you sell one of those, you will have to buy another tuner for the tuner club race. 16. Q. I was wondering when the pearlescent paint is unlocked. (Dancingbooger10) A. After a race in Atlanta. Not sure which one, but I think it's either the Tuners or the Luxary Sdan club races. From Khabibuln.. You win it in the second set of Vanessa races. 17. Q. I just got my motercycle on Midnight Club 3 and I can't tune it up, but thats not the only thing. I can't tune up my El Camino or my Lancer. Can you help? (lilpat1988) A. Yep. You haven't won the parts yet. The race to win 'em is in San Diego, I think. 18. Dude, the first 3 days playing the game I got 50% done, and then it got erased. Then, I didn't play it that much so i got back up to 29%. Then, my friend erased it so right now i have 9%. What's going on? (M4Yln) A. Two things could have happened. 1.) Someone went into browser and erased the game save 2.) You forgot to save. 19.) Is there anything I need to know about this game that would really help me in the beginning? (bigdiesel97) A. I don't want to give spoilers out, but a little piece of advise from me is that your first car should be the Dodge SRT-4, since it is the fastest. 20.) Q. Ok, I am in Atlanta currently and when i pull out a luxury, sport bike, tuner, anything there will be about 3 or 5 stars for each on the map. So, I go to one of the stars and i'll beat it to race 10 of 14, and then all 5 stars will go away on the map for that certain type of car. Will this affect the percentage of the game for me or will I be able to race them all in Detroit? (Bgunther3) A. Ahh, dude, that's supposed to happen. Each star represents a race. For example, there are three stars on the board. You go to a star and race three races. The stars are gone because you already raced the race the star was representing. 21.) Q. Is there any way to lower your skill rating? (Brt2512) A. Losing races, I believe. 22.) Q. I Was Wondering When Should I Trade Mt 1st Car In. I Started With The SRT-4. Should I Wait Until The End Of The City?? Because I Want Something A Little Faster (russel.lester.newl) A. After you can buy a better tuner, which may be before the end of the city. KamikazeslayerX says... I used it up until the 11th tuner racer and it beat ALL of Atlanta and San Diego for me! Just get good with that. Use it, don't sell it, until you can buy a Class B tuner. I got the Elise and that just handled the rest. Also, since I am a Tuner/bike racer, those are all I really use. I don't know if this helps, but tell people not to win the Skyline it's not worth driving, maxed parts and stuff. Yes, it is good for class C, but that is it my Elise can burn it. SO I don't know if this counts as a record or anything but taking a beggining car and geting all the way up to detriot and beating the first racer but yes I think that as a tip is to keep the SRT4 until you can't win anymore. Like I said, it got me totally through the first two cities, and after that you have saved major money by not buying new cars, then you can buy the Viper and tune that up. 23.) Q. Do The Opponents Get Harder When You Upgrade? (russel.lester.newl) A. Yes. 24.) Q. Can You Keep Racing In The Same City Or Can You Only Race With The Opponents Once? (russel.lester.newl) A. You can keep racing in the same city, and you can beat opponents again after you've already beaten them, although I'm not sure of this. 25.) Do You Know How Much The 69 Camaro Costs? (russel.lester.newl) A. 49,990$. 26.) Q. Can I get the Skyline by just repeatedly racing the tuner car races in San Diego or do I have to get it by racing on the 3 cities? (encaenmi) A. You need to beat the complete tuner series to get the Skyline.\ 27.) Q. How can I unlock the level 2 tuning parts for the 300C? (encaenmi) A. Enter a certain race in San Diego, not sure which one. 28.) Q. How can I unlock the class C cars? (encaenmi) A. Enter a certain race in San Diego, not sure which one. 29.) Q. what is the purpouse of the wheelie bars? (encaenmi) A. The wheelie bars are just for looks, but with hydraulics they become a balancer. 30.) Q. I have a problem with my chevy bel air, I have already tuned it with all the first level parts and it doesn't seem to stand up to my SR-4 or my 300C, so what can I do to make it faster? (encaenmi) A. Get level 2 tuning parts. That's all you can do. 31.) Q. I'm in San Diego and I need to get a bike. How can I do this? (wolf_online) A. Race in San Diego (not the city races), until you see you can race Phil. Once you can race him, do so. After you beat him, a tournament should come up. Win that, and you got yourself a chopper, boy! 32.) Q. I was starting in San Diego, and entered I believe CIty Tournament where there are 14 races in one and 15 in another. Each one I entered, it say Race 1 out of 14, for ex. When you win menu goes to "continue next race and other options." I get to and win Race 5 and then I go back to Cruise mode in City. Is there something wrong with my game? Why does it say Race 1, 2, 3,4 5 out of 14 in one and same thing out of 15 in another and I only get 5 races and it stops? Does it continue later on in game or different city? Do you have to come in 1st on 1st try to do all 14 or 15 races? (GKESTEL) A. That's supposed to happen. Tournaments and club races are split up between the three cities, so you're not bored to death racing fifteen races in a row. 33.) Q. what should I do with $184,712 (I donít have class A)? A. Buy the Dodge Viper and tune the performance to the max. 34.) Q. Hey, i was just wondering when I could get performance upgrades for my Ducati SS 1000. (aznpottymouth777) A. No idea. 35.) Q. I also wanted to know when I could unlock more sport bikes. (aznpottymouth777) A. Beat Angel in Detroit. 36.) Q. I was wonder what exactly do I have to do to be able to upgrade the body on my Class A cars and the last few cars that I unlock in the game. Like the 95 F1 LM (class A exotics) or Sixteen (class B luxury sedans). I got it 100% unlocked and have all the Rockstar symbols, but I still cant upgrade the body or and I still get unavailable when trying upgrade the rims to 21" on the 95 F1 LM...and unavailable for 26"/27" rims for Sixteen. Is there something I forgot to do? (bofum4me) A. FOr the performance parts, the problem ihat they already have the upgrades. I mean, the Mclaren F1 LM can't be upgraded more than 0.01 points, so there's no point in upgrading. For your second question, the car's are either too low or they have too big tires to get the rims that big. 37.) Q. I was wondering about the rockstar logos you are supposed to look for in each city. What happens when you find them? are they worth the trouble of looking for? A. I'm not sure what you get, but I advise beating the game before worrying about those. From Khabibuln... After getting the twelve in San Diego, you get the rockstar flag vinyl. After getting the twelve in Atlanta, you get the Rockstar license plate. After getting the twelve in Detroit, you get the race starter girls as motorcycle riders. 38.) Q. Any tips on how to do the tournement In Detroit? It's an autocross one to win 20,000. (mike0909) A. Pick the car you have that has the best handling. A sport bike would not be a bad idea. 39.) Q. How do you get a Chevy Bel Air? (ulashh) A. Beat Carlos. THen, win the tournament that comes right after. That should give you a Bel Air. 40.) Q. Which car is El Diablo Rigid? (ulashh) A. A class B Chopper. 41.) Q. I am in the "Hotlanta Tournament" and have been doing fine till now. The track in this tourny has many sharp, 90∫ turns and unfortunatly this is my weakness. I was wondering if you had any advice or tips, what buttons to hit, strats to improve on turns like these. A. Use a sport bike, turn while holding the L1 button. If the turn still bugs you, then, use handbrake (R1). There is also a brake button. 42.) Q. Do the Knock Off rims spin? A. N0, they don't. 43.) Which truck should I buy first (I only have up to class C)? I have the Escalade EXT. A. Either keep the Escalade and tune that, or sell the Escalade and get the G500. 44.) Q. My friend told me about a airplane engine he got. How do you unlock it? (baller_atl) A. Uhh... That's... interesting. I'm sure there's no airplane engine in this game. I don't even think airplane engines can fit in cars... 45.) Q. i am in a Luxary Sedan and i got zone instead of Agro! WTF? (jcurtis2894131) A. Calm down. The Lexus SC430 and the Mercedes CL500 get zone instead of Agro. 46.) Q. I was wondering, are there any upgrades you can make to your car music system (ex. speakers, cd players, dvd players, etc.)? (themonsta15) A. No. Send in more questions at TheeMikester@aol.com. ======================================================================= ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ1234567890~`!@#$%^&*()-_=+[{]]\|;:'"/?.>,<:-) ======================================================================= 20.) Fun Stuff To Do(DFSZ) My ideas are running out, this is just for enjoyment. 1.) Define Gravity (submitted from Hart Attack0389) If you find a huge jump on any level, go to that spot with either a sport bike, a tuner, or an exotic. If you have a sport bike-- use zone just as you reach the top of the jump. use the in-air controls, and you can do either a backflip, frontflip, or a spin (usually there is only enough time to do a 360) If you have a tuner or exotic-- do the same thing as w/ a sport bike. Spins usually work best. I've done a 1440 while in an exotic. The biggest ramp I've found so far is in San Diego. It is in the military base, by the big ship. There is a building that has a missile hanging from the ceiling. Use that ramp...and do the flips or spins... 2.) Sweet Sparks (submitted from Jon) Try driving on 2 wheels for the McLaren F1 LM, the sparks look sweeeeeet!!!! 3.) Circle=ramp (submitted from Hart Attack0389) Go to the bottom of the detroit map, and there will be a street that goes underground. There's an archway lookin thing that is a circle on one of the entrances. the "ramp" is actually the arch, but if you ride up it at an angle, it's kinda like a ramp... Ride it on a sport bike. Like I said, cheap fun. 4.) Normal Person (Submitted from me) Try to go around the city loke a normal person. Stay behind everyone else, stop at stoplights, the works. See how hard that is after you go at about 200MPH around the city. 5.) Matrix (Submitted from me) Ever seen matrix 2? Well, try to act like trinity on the sports bike. Get an Abrilia Mille Factory, get some cops on your ass, and speed around the highway, do the wrong way doing the same thing, then exit with a 155 degree turn on an exit. ======================================================================= |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| ======================================================================= 21.) Want to Make A FAQ? (BNDS) This section is purely for people who want to make more out of Gamefaqs by contributing. This may not be the same for all sites, mainly for Gamefaqs. First, go to notepad, under accessories in the start menu. This is given to Microsoft users, so if you don't have it, you can always download one. Once you have Notepad up and running, make your FAQ. I suggest some ASCII art (art with the text) to brighten up your FAQ. Once you've typed it, save it. If you're registered to Gamefaqs, all you need to do is login. To register yourself, at the upper left hand corner, there should be a login box. Click sign me up. Then, give them your info, and you should be in! Once registered, click contribute at the top of the page. A page titled Contributor Central should come up. Scroll down and click submit a file. Then, type in the game, and the system it's for. A list of games should come up. Click the one you want, and then another page should come up. Type in the title of the FAQ, the version, ect. Uploading the file is confusing, though. What you have to do is go into your files, Double click the title you saved your FAQ under, and click load. Give CJayC (the runner of this site) any additional side notes, then upload the file. It's in! Problems that might occur... 1.) YOu may have a problem logging in. 2.) The way you typed it (format) may not be so good. To see if your FAQ got accepted, go to Contributor central, and click contribution status. If it's rejected, add some more info and try again. ======================================================================= |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| ======================================================================= 22.) Reminders (GRRR) Alright, I'm starting to get a little ticked off with the E-mails, so here's a little section on reminders... --- Alright, let's start off with the E-mail policy. First of all, some people have such bad spelling and grammar that I can't read the damn thing! --- Another E-mail baddie is the fact people are trying to run my guide. This rule has been set down recently, but follow it. I'm tired of people asking for cheats and walkthroughs! I don't want that kind of stuff in my guide! (especially cheats, I despise them) --- This isn't a bad thing, but I need less questions and more information. I'm on 5.00 and the guide's not complete! I have about half of the A and B cars, but about 50 KB worth of questions! I still welcome questions, send them in all you want, but try to include a little info, too. If you can't, that's OK, you can still send me the question. --- This is a good thing. Many people have brought to my attention that my FAQ is excellent! This is good. But, could you rate my FAQ, by chance? Some guy who hated my FAQ (and hates me, what a retard) Had a little, uhh... Fun, with the rating of this FAQ. It's at 33.33333333333333333 333333 (you get the idea) percent. This makes people not want to read my FAQ. To rate my FAQ, next to the title, look on the left. Click "Rate". IF you liked it. click yes at the top of the page. --- I have recently got a bombardment of questions about what happens at the end of the game (do you get more money, ect.). How the hell am I supposed to know? Besides, giving out those questions would be giving out spoilers, which I try not to do. --- Try not to send attachments. Just send the plain text letter. --- I have gotten loads of contributions. The one problem is, I'm not sure who the person wants to have the credit given to! In your E-mail, give me the name you want to be credited with. --- I only update this guide if there is something to update. I won't update if there is only 1 byte of an update, not worth going through the trouble. ======================================================================= |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| ======================================================================= 23.) Glitches (FDKL) Here are glitches. diedekik007 started this whole section. Diederik007 found these... - How to make pedestrians admire your car Drive your car and stop beside a pedestrian (DO NOT HIT THEM). After a few seconds they should start looking at your car. They may get on their knees to admire your rims, or walk around your whole car. Jon found these... -Nice Getaway Somehow, when you are doing a wheelie on a motorcycle, you get more acceleration than on 2 wheels. Dende5416 found these... Screwed PS2 *I actualy somehow killed a new PS2 with this game and San Diego no longer works for me. I tried cleaning it once and it worked for awhile, then and it started freezing again. Still haven't figured out why. Gx Viper found these... -Easy Gap Between Racers I SUGGEST YOU USE ZONE WHEN YOU GO THROUGH SHARP TURNS. THAT WAY YOU KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING, PLUS YOU MAKE BETTER TURNS THAN OTHER RACERS. Urban1legend found these... -Easy Optional Races You can adjust game difficulty on how many of the "Optional Races" ( red flares ) you do. The more you do, the harder tournaments will be. For example, me and my sis are on the same tournament, she has done almost none of the "Optional Races" and I've done quite a few. Her opponents are very slow cars, Golfs, Ecplipses and other slow POS's. And I'd be racing Lambo's, Saleens, Skylines and etc. ======================================================================= |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| ======================================================================= 24.) Rockstar Logos (DAZM) This section is all about Rockstar Logos. These are the maps for the cities. San Diego: http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/xbox/file/midnight_club_3_r_san_diego .gif Atlanta: http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/xbox/file/midnight_club_3_r_atlanta.gif Detroit: http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/xbox/file/midnight_club_3_r_detroit.gif Here are tips on finding them. Atlanta: When you get out of the garage immediately turn to the right. You will see a glass. Crash through to find the logo. Atlanta: Drive to the bottom of the map. Look for a building with a large globe. There is a logo that reads "Nitro Cola". A logo is located directly under it. Atlanta: Drive to the graveyard in the south of the map (near the highway). There is a logo at the east part of the building. Atlanta: Follow the highway until you reach a place with some construction work. Drive off the highway (to your right side if driving north), and look for a tank station. Follow the building around and you will see a ramp/road going up. Get some speed, fly over, and you will land on the roof of the building. The logo should be directly in front of you. Atlanta: Follow the highway until you see a building with a yellow sign on top that reads "DJ Smalls". Across the road is a small parking area where you can see a sign on another building that reads "Spike". To the left of that building is a basketball court and a logo. Atlanta: Follow the building where your garage is located. Drive through the skeleton's mouth and you will find a logo. San Diego: Find the aircraft carrier and locate the ramp to jump onto the flight deck. Here you'll find a logo. San Diego: There is a logo behind the baseball stadium. Follow the highway to the back of the stadium. You will then see a small ramp. Drive up to find the logo. San Diego: There is a logo at the top deck of the hangar ship. San Diego: Drive to the beach at the top left of the map. Follow the beach until you see a small tunnel. There you'll find the logo. San Diego: At the lower left of the map (near the hanger ship), follow the coastline. There is no road close by. Follow the large building, and you will find a small road that leads up to a roof. Turn left and you will see the logo. San Diego: Almost at the lower right corner at the map, there is a large parking garage. When you are on the street, drive to the bottom left corner of the building. Drive up the ramp, turn left, and drive through the window to find another logo. San Diego: To the far left of the map at the roller coaster, drive up the ramp that is located to the north. Ride to find the logo. ======================================================================= |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| |+-+| ======================================================================= 25.)
