Crash and N. Cortex (Intermediate)
These racers aren’t such a good way to start playing but if you get the hang of it, 
these are perfect.  They are balanced and easy to use.

Pura, Polar, and Penta Penguin (Beginner)
If you just buy the game, these guys are perfect.  They have great turning, though 
not so fast.  These are great for beginners.

Tiny and Dingodile (Advance)
These are for very advanced people.  They have great speed, but have very poor 
handling.  Don’t use these until you’ve beaten Oxide.

These racers all use cheats, but they are the best.  They’re great at everything!
