Here are the stages for the action races.

--------------------------------------------------------
Level 1, Stage 1: Downtown Race
Location: City on a winter day
Music Track: City Escape Remix

This is a stage where 2 fighters race down the streets
of the city with their snowboards. There are some ramps,

the gates, and you'll be fine. The goal ring is at the
bottom where the streetcar is.

--------------------------------------------------------
Level 1, Stage 2: Grind Race
Location: Pyramid
Music Track: Pyramid Cave Remix

This is a stage where 2 fighters grind their rail to the
finish line. To speed up, just hold down B button. Be
careful! When there are some turns, just twist the

you follow these tricks. There are 2 checkpoints if you
fall, and the goal ring is at the bitter bottom near the
door.

--------------------------------------------------------
Level 2, Stage 1: City Escape
Location: City
Music Track: Escape From The City

A lot has changed since the 1P Stage. Firstly, there are

ring is at the area near the iron crates. Overall, there
are 4 checkpoints.

--------------------------------------------------------
Level 2, Stage 2: Metal Harbour

A lot has changed here too. Firstly, you don't have the
line of rings at the beginning. Secondly, there are
some springs, and/or jump pads. These are for
non-Light Dashers. At the end, there is no rocket, but
some springs. And, at the big rocket, the goal ring is
there. Overall, there are 3 checkpoints.

-------------------------------------------------------
Level 2, Stage 3: White Jungle
Location: Prison Island (Forest Region)
Music Track: Rhythm & Balance

Not much has changed. The only exception is that the
goal ring is at the area where the line of rings used
to be. Overall, there are 3 or 4 checkpoints.

-------------------------------------------------------
Level 3, Stage 1: Green Forest

points. The goal ring is near the 2nd line of crates
to break at the bottom.

------------------------------------------------------
Level 4, Stage 2: Final Chase
Location: Space Colony ARK
Music Track: The Supernatural

Again, some items have changed. You start after where
the first checkpoint was before. Also, some of the

is located at the top of the 2nd gravity drum after
the set of holes to fall into.

The little Chaos are here to play!

---------------------------------------------------
                    Chao Race
---------------------------------------------------

You can only use Party Race. Just pick your hand-
raised Chao (up to 4, 1 per controller or Game Boy
Advance), and these are the courses you can pick.

---------------------------------------------------
i. Beginner Race Courses
---------------------------------------------------

Here are the beginner race courses.

---------------------------------------------------
a. Crab Pool                             (Swimming)
---------------------------------------------------

This is a swimming course. See Chao swim and swim.

hill.

---------------------------------------------------

This is a climbing course. See Chao climb up a
wall.

---------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------

This is a course that consists of 2 pools. The key
to victory is swimming fast.

---------------------------------------------------
ii. Topaz                                  (Flight)
---------------------------------------------------

This is a course that starts and ends with a hill
to fly across. The key to victory here is reaching

This is a course where there are 2 walls. The first
one is at the point if you missed your flight
across. The other is near the finish line. Also,
after the first hill, your Chao will have to shake
a tree to get a fruit out, and it will eat it. Huge
strength is the key to victory.

---------------------------------------------------
v. Onyx                              (Intelligence)
---------------------------------------------------

This is a course where intelligence of a Chao is
the key to victory. There is a Jack-in-the-box to
begin with. Your Chao will open it up. If nothing,
it can go. If a scary head pops out, it will faint.
Then, your Chao will see a picture, then it will
pick up the object which matches the picture. If it
does match, your Chao can go on. If not, Omochao
will bonk your Chao on the head, making it faint.

---------------------------------------------------
vi. Diamond                            (Everything)
---------------------------------------------------

This is a course where everything is there to put
your Chao to the test. Your Chao has to be good at
EVERYTHING to win.
