Do not allow the trip meter (located under the odometer)
go much beyond 100 to 150. If your car goes beyond that point,
you will notice a lack of acceleration and top speed. To get this
meter to go back down to 0, pause game play, and select "Return
To Garage". Once in the garage, select "Start Race"
and trip meter will be back down to 0.
If your mileage is low and you need to gain but do
not want to drive in circles, challenge a rival. After the race
is over it will stay in auto-pilot with the trip meter and odometer
still ticking (eventually leading the way to the level 8 muffler
and level 7 engine).
Speed King's car: Recommended gear
Defeating Speed King

Also, use the Inner Kanjyo or Outer Kanjyo track because that
car cannot move fast in the narrow street.

Spring Rate: +10 front and rear
Damper: -12 front and rear

On the course, an easy way to earn more money in races
is to make it longer. For example, tailgating and bumper-gating.
The best place on the map to do this is on the long straight.
Make sure you have a car that gets up and goes though. When you
challenge someone, stay behind them, then get in front of them.
The downside is that most of your battle SP will be gone, however
you will get more money faster.
You can race the people that you have already defeated and they
still give you money for winning again.
Glitch: Race through the air
After defeating a rival, let the game go into autopilot
mode. When in this mode, open the CD tray and watch the screen.
Eventually everything will disappear except the cars, traffic,
and background image. It will appear that the car is racing through
