2.THE Best way to start GT3
Go to the License Tests.  It my be hard...but you have to complete them anyway. 
That's right...Do all of the License tests.  The best way is to get GOLD on all the 
tests. I know...Easier said than done but it IS worth it. If you have a 
gameshark...Use the Low License Time code. (Found below) Once you beat EVERY 
Test...sell all the crap they gave you EXCEPT the Viper GTSR Concept, "Like it is 
actually crap?".  Now save the game on 2 memory cards.  Buy all the best 
upgrades, "Don't buy any Suspension parts" and buy super-slick tires.  Now save the 
game on the 2nd memory card and load the game from the 1st card.  Sell the Viper on 
card 1 and go to Trade.  Buy the Viper that you just upgraded for FREE "you cheater" 
and save again.  Go to settings and change the settings, "Listed below." Go to 
Professional, Like the Wind, and race.  You really don't need to go into the pits to 
fix your wheels.  You WON, "Of coarse you did!" Now you have another car.  You might 
want to save just in case.  Now go to Endurance, go to Super Speedway 150 miles.  
Dig around for your tape.  Put tape over the X button and go watch a movie or 
something while you are winning.  After a while the race will be over and you will 
have won. Now you have another car and Lots O' Cash.  Sell the car you win and you 
will have even more cash, "You can get any of the cars in another race except the 
Clio Sport Race Car witch isn't worth the hassle because you have a Viper." Now get 
real...you don't need me anymore...go on...find your own way...but what I would do 
is...do every race you can with the Viper GTSR Concept...and don't forget to change 
the Oil!

3. The part you have been waiting for: CAR SETTINGS.
Notice: These cars have good acceleration but are set to go over 220 mph.  Some of 
them should only be driven on the Test Track do to bad handling, Etc...But I will 
let YOU decide.  "I'm no good with handling...Just gear ratios"!
If you have a car that is better than mine or one that I don't have on here, "Top 
end cars"...feel free to E-mail me at [email protected]  Put the name 
of the game and car in the subject box.
