Crash's Crazed Kart Race: The Story
----------------------------------------------
Crash Bandicoot's "take it easy" island life is about to get cramped. 
Crash's newest nemesis, a crabby alien named Nitros Oxide, just flew 
into this part of the galaxy looking for trouble. This cranky space 
invader thinks he's the fastest racer in the entire universe and has 
challenged the best driver of Crash's world to a race for the planet. 
Worst of all, if Oxide wins, he promises to turn the entire world into 
a concrete parking lot!
 
It's obvious that Oxide isn't playing with a full crate of wumpa fruit. 
Even past villain Dr. Neo Cortex has taken Crash's side as an unlikely 
ally. Things must be really desperate.

All of Crash's friends, and even a few of his past foes, think that 
they are the fastest driver in the world, and should be the hero racer 
to face Oxide and save the planet. But Oxide is a world-class 
speedster. So who will be his toughest competition?

Looks like you'll have to wait and see!



Hub 1: N. Santinty Beach
----------------------------------------

1. Crash Cove

Difficulty: 4/20
My Relic Time: 0:46.37
Relic I got: Platinum

The first race! You will be surprised to know that thereís a shortcut! When you 
jump over the first ramp into the pool, head for the low cliff beside the bridge. 
When you almost got out of the pool, jump for the cliff. If youíre lucky, youíll 
get there! When you drop down and go on the big bridge, stay on the left side. 
About two Karts away from getting onto dirt, jump left. Thatís how youíll go 
fast. 

2. Rooís Tubes

Difficulty: 2/20
My Relic Time: 0:51.47
Relic I got: Platinum

This is the second, but easiest track in the whole game! And there is a shortcut 
as 
well! The ending blue tubes part is where you slow down most. I prefer sliding. 
But 
Wait! Hereís the short cut! When you get the last boost pad, jump onto flat 
ground 
and drive left onto dirt. Then head for the finish line!!! Going on dirt for too 
long will slow you down!!!

3. Mystery Caves

Difficulty: 7/20
My Relic Time: 1:39.78
Relic I got: Sapphire
H
I HATE THIS TRACK! Except with Aku Aku. The fireballs are soooooooooooo annoying. 
NO SHORTCUTS?!!? This is the hardest track in the gameÖfor now. JUST GET THE 
RAMPS 
AND DODGE THE FIREBALLS!!! 

4. Sewer Speedway

Difficulty: 7/20
My Relic Time: 0:48.69
Relic I got: Gold

Way easier than Mystery Caves, but I add a little difficulty cos it has lots of 
ways to choose from and confusing! There is a shortcut! When you get out of the 
three way pipes in the beginning, go right and you will see a hole in the wall. 
Get 
on the ramp and jump to the hole and get the booster, but wait! DONíT GO PAST THE 
BRIDGE!!! GO DOWN THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BRIDGE FOR THE REAL SHORTCUT!!! Go 
forwards 
and youíre back-further up the track. Go past the log and youíll see another 
hole. 
Donít go into it. Youíll go the wrong way!

Ripper Roo-BOSS

Difficulty: 6/20
Weapons: TNT
Weaknesses: Missile, Turbo Boosts 
So, now youíve seen some good racers, now youíre going to verse the best racer 
for 
now-a BOSS!
Itís Rooí Tubes and youíre racing Ripper Roo! Heís not that tough though, but 
watch 
out for his TNTís! But if you do get one, just keep on jumping and youíll get it 
off. Get two and BOOM!!!
Just donít use a missile when heís putting down a TNT, it will hit the TNT 
instead! 


Hub 2: Lost Ruins
---------------------------------------

1.	Coco Park

Difficulty: 4/20
My Relic Time: 1:07.16
Relic I got: Gold

Boring! This is about...neck and neck to Rooís Pipes! I think it is harder than 
Rooís Pipes because it was lots of turns(Did you know that Cocoís Park is an 
oval!)
and way Way WAY boring than Rooís Pipes! Er...boring...getting very sleepy...
(Snore,snore,snore)


2.	Tiger Temple

Difficulty: 9/20
My Relic Time: 0:48.52
Relic I got: Gold

The hardest track yet. Not that hard though. Avoid the flame breathing
Statues and only get the wumpa fruit boxes when you need to. There is an 
shortcut!!! When you get past the first Flame Statue corridor, youíll see a door 
with an idol on top of it. Use a weapon(Sheild, Aku Aku, Missile, etc)to attack 
the 
door and it will open. Get all the wumpa fruit inside and you should get full 
Wumpa! Jump down and if youíre no too further behind(No more than 3 racer in 
front 
of you)and youíll come first(The past 1st racer will be turning around the 
corner!).


3.	Dingo Canyon 

Difficulty: 10/20
My Relic Time: 0:58.25
Relic I got: Gold

Harder than Tiger Temple still! Naughty dog is putting the tracks in order (from 
easiest to hardest except Coco Park and Blizzard Bluff). Avoid the blue Drops of 
water that interfere with you. If you hit on of them, youíll go into a spin!!! It 
wonít be nice to hit one if youíre first! Sorry, no shortcuts!


4.	Papuís Pyramid

Difficulty: 12/20
My Relic Time: 1:32.69
Relic I got: Sapphire

The hardest track yet (I always say that). Way harder than Mystery cave because 
there are man-eating plants! In Relic Race, when you pass the first turbo boost 
and 
onto the bridge, jump left to get 4 extra boxes.
There are three shortcuts! The first one is after the first man-eating plants 
area. 
When you see the yellow and black fences go between the first and second one on 
the 
left ton go on a platform and jump off. The second one can only be done if you 
didnít do the first. After the turn (where the yellow and black fences are)go on 
the turbo boost and go the the left corner and jump the a ledge where there is 
wumpa fruit and jump onto a bridge(familiar isnít it! It is the bridge in the 
beginning!). The third one is almost impossible without Aku Aku. Go on the ramp 
after the third plant area and jump sharply right. You should land on the part 
where you will be after the turn.


Papu Papu-BOSS 

Difficulty: 14/20
Weapons: Red and Green Beakers
Weaknesses: Bowling Bomb, Missiles 

Itís Papu Papu! (He looks if heís going to squash his kart cos heís so fat!) You 
race him on Papuís Pyramid and heís using beakers! His main weakness is bowling 
bombs as he throws his beaker high and will not do any defense. Use the shortcuts.



Hub 3: Glacier Park
--------------------------------


1.	Blizzard Bluff

Difficulty: 8/20
My Relic Time: 1:07.34
Relic I got: Gold


Whoa! Slidey! This place is snowing! The only main interference is the giant rock 
that rolls around. There are two shortcuts! The first one is when you start. Go 
left and go into a tunnel. This should save 0.5 seconds. The second one is past 
the 
first ice area. Go left instead of right and jump over water to get to the other 
side.


2.	Dragon Mines

Difficulty: 13/20
My Relic Time: 1:26.36
Relic I got: Sapphire

The name ďDragon MinesĒ doesnít mean it has Dragons! The mine carts are very 
annoying as they can squash you! There is a shortcut, but a risk one. When you 
see 
the first train track, turn right into a tunnel where the carts are going. Keep 
going and youíll see the twisty turn. Donít go down here! Go forwards and go off 
the track. You should be squashed about two times. (Get an Aku Aku before going 
in 
the tunnel to stop being squashed.)


3.	Polar Pass

Difficulty: 14/20
My Relic Time: 2:26.50
Relic I got: Gold

Quite Hard! Especially with the stupid seals and sharp turns. Polar and Penta 
Penguin are the most efficient racers in this track. There is a shortcut!!! When 
you pass the straight way and go into a cave, there will be two seals. Avoid them 
both and go on the hill and jump over the wall(If you get hit by one of the 
seals, 
you will lose your speed and crash into the wall).


4.	Tiny Arena

Difficulty: 14.5/20
My Relic Time: 3:15.29
Relic I got: Gold

Mud, mud, mud! This place is muddy!!! Avoid the Mud Pools!!! Oh, sorry, I was 
being 
a bit too mad. Sadly no shortcuts but there are some minor ones. Just donít slide 
on the turns! Jump instead! My Friend said that he thought Tiny Arena was the 
property of Tiny! Just avoid mud!!!

Komodo Joe-BOSS

Difficulty:16/20
Weapons: Explode-on-Impact TNTs, Nitros  
Weaknesses: Missiles, Aku Aku

You race Komodo Joe in Dragon Mines. Itís bad to use the shortcut as you will get 
squished a lot and will be slower. Donít get too close to him or heíll use nitro! 
Just stay on the side. His weakness is Aku Aku because the track is a straight 
track; you can use the shortcut, destroy his weapons, and best of all, bash him 
up! 



Hub 4: Citadel City
-----------------------------


1. N. Gin Labs

Difficulty: 16/20
My Relic Time: 1:29.58
Relic I got: Gold

The Mad Mechanical Geniusís Lab! N. Gin is no the best racer to use on this track 
though. The only shortcut is to cut the corners of the U turn after the logs. The 
best way to win is to Cut some corners, get the boosts (including the ones the 
logs 
are rolling on but donít if itís too risky)and best of all, use your weapons!

   
2. Cortex Castle

Difficulty: 16.5/20
My Relic Time: 1:39.14
Relic I got: Gold

Cortex doesnít have a castle (laughs)! Oh well, Naughty Dog sure have a lot of 
imagination! Avoid the boxes under the spiders, only get emí when you really need 
it. There is a shortcut! When you go past the stairs, turn right to enter a blue 
room. When you enter, go on the ramp and jump left. If youíre lucky, youíll land 
on 
a bridge to the turbo jump.


3. Hot Air Skyway

Difficulty: 17.5
My Relic Time: 2: 15.13
Relic I got: Gold

Hard as! You can fall off anywhere! Donít get too close to the edge or youíll 
fall 
off! Itís a pain in the neck if you fall off when first! Now for the impossible 
shortcut! When you get past the straight way about 8 tenths along the way, youíll 
go on a turbo boost. Go on it and jump left and if youíre 100% lucky, youíll get 
there to the end! (Believe me, Iíve done it before)!



4. Oxide Station

Difficulty: 20/20
My Relic Time: 2:16.22
Relic I got: Platinum
The hardest track in the game! Itís so hard, you wonít be use to it in a thousand 
plays (It took me 2 tries to get used this horror). There is a shortcut but I 
CANíT 
TELL YOU COS ONLY A FEW OF THE DEVELOPERS AND I KNOW THIS TRICK. I CANíT SPREAD 
IT 
AROUND!!! Sorry to be so harsh, but thatís the nature of the beast these days. 
Hereís a helpful hint to cheer you up: Slide-Boost a lot and youíll go faster!


Pinstripe-BOSS

Difficulty: 19.5/20
Weapons: Back-Bowling Bombs
Weaknesses: Bowling Bombs, Shields 

Pinstripe in Hot Air Skyway!  Itís a very tough challenge but youíll beat him. 
Just 
avoid his Bomb and hit him with your own (Bowling Bombs go through other Bowling 
Bombs). DO NOT USE SHORTCUT!!! Youíll waste your time! And donít panic! 


Hub 5
--------------------------- 


1.	Slide Coliseum 

Difficulty: 16/20
My Relic Time: 1:30.08
Relic I got: Platinum 

The first track you have to slide a lot. Keep you eyes open, there are heaps of 
shortcuts! Jump over tyres and obstacles! Cut corners by going on grass! You only 
can do Relic Race on this one. Get all the boxes and lots of emí are gotten by 
going through shortcuts!


2.	Turbo Track

Difficulty: 17.5/20
My Relic Time: 1:02.71
Relic I got: Platinum

The slidey track would make everyone think it is hard! Actually, no! You can cut 
through grass; you canít jump over tyres in this level and slide around sharp U 
turns! Thatís the hardest part: U turns! It really hard and youíve slide a lot to 
get past these.

NITROS OXIDE
-----------------------------


Nitros Oxide-FINAL BOSS

Difficulty: 25/20
Weapons: Every weapon a boss can use
Weaknesses: Everything

At Last! The final Race, against Oxide! Heís Supa Tough and will not let anything 
get in his way. But if he does hit something, heíll spin, but heíll move forward 
at 
the same time. WHAT A CHEATER! HE EVEN STARTS THE RACE BEFORE YOU!!! I used the 
shortcut to win him. You need to beat him two times to win him. If you beat him, 
heíll leave earth and youíll see the credits and Scrapbook.

Asked Questions
---------------------------------
This is the section for asking me questions. You can Email me the Questions. I 
wonít answer questions asking for cheats or shortcuts as they are already listed 
in 
this FAQ

Crashbandicoot380@hotmail.com: Whereís the ďTĒ in Crash Cove?

Answer: The T in crash cove is on a bridge. When you go into the pool near the 
beginning, youíll see a low cliff beside a bridge. Before you get out of the 
water, 
jump for the low cliff. When you get there, turn right onto the bridge. Get the T 
thatís on the right side of the bridge and fall into deep water. Then Aku Aku 
will 
turn you around.
