=====================================
I. Introduction
=====================================

Namco has really developed a good racing game in Ridge Racer Type 4. 
Unfortunately for Namco, there is another racing game about to be 
released, Gran Turismo 2.  R4 has an awesome selection of playable 
vehicles.  R4 has the best graphics of any Ridge Racer to date.

There are four teams.  

Micro Mouse Mappy (M.M.M.)- Easy- France
Dig Racing Team (D.R.T.)- Expert- USA
Pac Racing Team (P.R.C)- Normal- Japan
Racing Team Solvalou (R.T.S)- Hard- Italy

There are also four car manufacturers.

Assoluto- Drift- Italy
Lizard- Drift- USA
Terrazi- Grip- Japan
Age Solo- Grip- France

When choosing a car manufacturer, keep in mind that drift cars are 
more difficult to control.

=======================================
II. The Complete List of Vehicles (321)

Like I said earlier, R4 has an awesome selection of vehicles.

======================================
V. Driving Tips
======================================

There aren't many tips that I can give you.  Really the only tips 
deal with cornering.

The Grip cars have excellent traction and a stiff suspension.

1. Turn
2. While full throttle, tap the brakes
3. Feather the brakes until you're through the turn.

The Drift cars are more difficult to control.  Some corners don't 
require sliding, but you should feather the brakes.

1. Turn
2. Release the gas
3. After losing traction, hit the throttle.
4. Turn the steering wheel, so you stay on the track.
