=============================================================================

+ These are the default keyboard controls for the PC. The controls are 
completely configurable to suit your preference. The PC version also supports 
game controllers.

* To drive in reverse (not driving backwards), come to a complete stop, then 
press "Brake" to begin moving in reverse. When driving in reverse, these 
buttons operate in the opposite manner; i.e., "Brake" accelerates you faster 
in reverse while "Gas" stops your reverse movement.

++ There are three default viewpoints:
   1) First-person perspective (or "bumper view")
   2) Third-person perspective from close behind the car
   3) Third-person perspective from far behind the car
Pressing the "Camera Presets" button cycles between these viewpoints.

** To jump, press "Crouch", then quickly press "Raise" (on a controller, this 
is a quick down, then up movement on the left control stick). You can get 
extra height off ramps by jumping right at the edge; just be sure to release 
"Raise" quickly, because, once you're in the air, "Raise" points your car 
toward the ground, sending you into a nosedive.



============================== OVERVIEW [GP02] ==============================

Cars is primarily a racing game, though a couple of the mini-games don't have 
a racing component. The racing in Cars is "arcade style"--i.e. there's no 
damage model (hitting something just slows you down) and the driving physics 
are not very realistic. There are three modes of play:


                            ########################
                                   STORY MODE
                            ########################

Story Mode puts you in the middle of Radiator Springs and lets you freely (or, 
almost freely) roam the game world. There are 33 different events spread 
through five chapters and two adjacent world areas (Ornament Valley and 
Tailfin Pass). Completing events unlocks other events and you work your way 
through the main story, which takes place *after* the events in the movie and 
involves competition for the Piston Cup.

Each event you finish awards you a certain number of trophies--there are 250 
trophies in all. You must earn a minimum number of trophies to compete in the 
five Piston Cup races that end each chapter of the story.

In addition to races, there are a number of mini-games to spice up gameplay. 
These include timed and un-timed collection games, a stealth mini-game and 
several mini-games that are variations on a standard race (such as a timed 
obstacle course). To enter events, you must drive around the world, find an 
event marker, drive into it and press the "Brake" button.
 
While exploring the world, you can find bonus point tokens. Each type awards 
a certain number of points to your total:

 -> Red icons with a yellow lightning bolt: 100 points--these are literally
    lying around everywhere and are easy to find.

 -> Red icons with a white lightning bolt: 500 points--less numerous than the
    100-point icons, these are still relatively easy to come by.

 -> Gold icons with a yellow lightning bolt: 2,000 points--you'll have to
    search carefully, and, in some cases, pull off a trick to collect these
    valuable bonuses.

You also earn points during races and mini-games by achieving certain 
milestones, such as: best time, best lap time, "Safe Driver", "Big Air", 
"Powerslide", etc. Use your earned points to unlock bonus content including 
characters, concept art and movies. (*Movies are not available in the 
Gamecube version of Cars.*)


                            ########################
                                  ARCADE MODE
                            ########################

Lets you pick any of your unlocked characters and use them in any unlocked 
race or mini-game. Races and mini-games are unlocked during Story Mode.


                            ########################
                                     VS MODE
                            ########################

Lets you and another player pick from any unlocked characters and compete 
against each other in any unlocked race. There is no online competition in VS 
Mode.



================================= TIPS [GP03] ===============================

 -> You can Powerslide from the beginning of the game. While not as realistic
    as Powersliding in other racing games, you need to learn to use this
    ability to make tough corners and curves. Some cars (Doc Hudson) Power-
    slide better than others (Sheriff).

 -> Use Tilt to make near-90 degree turns. Tilt does slow you down, more so
    as you hold the tilt; however, it doesn't slow you as much as hitting a
    wall. Tilt comes in handy for those hard turns that Powersliding can't
    handle.

 -> Use shortcuts as much as possible. Not only do you gain an advantage over
    the other racers, you also earn bonus points for using the shortcut.

 -> Each time you start a new chapter, new bonus point icons appear in the
    open world areas. Make sure you go exploring in each chapter to collect
    all the bonus points.

 -> Get all three boost tanks by beating "Boostin' with Filmore", "Rustbucket
    Race-O-Rama" and "Delinquent Road Hazards".

================================== CHAPTER 1 ================================

            ######################################################
             EVENT:    Radiator Springs Grand Prix [WT01]
             TYPE:     Race (3 laps)
             LOCATION: Cozy Cone Motel
             REQ:      None
             REWARD:   5 trophies for 1st place
                       3 trophies for 2nd place
                       2 trophies for 3rd place
                       2 events for finishing the race
             UNLOCKS:  Radiator Cap Circuit
                       Lizzie's Postcard Hunt
            ######################################################

This opening race is very easy and is intended to get you used to the 
controls of the game. Finishing the race (which is a "dream" by McQueen) 
starts the main story proper and opens your first two events.



            ######################################################
             EVENT:    Radiator Cap Circuit [WT02]
             TYPE:     Race (3 laps)
             LOCATION: Flo's V8 Cafe
             REQ:      Finish Radiator Springs GP
             REWARD:   5 trophies for 1st place
                       3 trophies for 2nd place
                       2 trophies for 3rd place
                       2 events for finishing 3rd or higher
             UNLOCKS:  Sally's Sunshine Circuit
                       Tractor Tipping
            ######################################################

Another pretty easy race. You'll want to master Powersliding to make this one 
easier; but, you shouldn't have too much trouble. There's one little shortcut 
near the beginning--after passing the firehouse, and curving left, the road 
makes a hard curve to the right. There's a dirt path to the right that cuts 
off a little of the curve and gives you a chance to catch some air at the end.



            ######################################################
             EVENT:    Lizzie's Postcard Hunt [WT03]
             TYPE:     Mini-game
             LOCATION: Lizzie's store
             REQ:      Finish Radiator Springs GP
             REWARD:   20 trophies for finding all 20 postcards
             UNLOCKS:  Nothing
            ######################################################

Lizzie's Postcard Hunt is a collection game that spans most of Story mode. 
When you activate this event, 20 postcards are scattered around the game 
world. Only eight are immediately retrievable. You won't be able to finish 
this hunt until early in Chapter 4, so you might want to just wait until then 
to get into the thick of it.

Chapter 1 Postcards:
====================
These postcards are in the Radiator Springs area and can be reached 
immediately, though a couple are easier to reach if you have a boost tank.

 -> Directly across the street from Lizzie's, almost in front of Mack.

 -> On top of Ramone's House of Body Art; there's a ramp around back to
    get up on the roof.

 -> On top of some crates behind Luigi's Casa Della Tires; go behind Lizzie's
    shop and get a running start up the ramp and jump to reach the postcard
    (this one's a bit easier if you have at least one boost tank).

 -> In one of the rooms of the Glenn Rio Motel, east of the Cozy Cone Motel
    on Route 66.

 -> In the wash running behind Sarge's compound, underneath the bridge.

 -> Behind Sarge's compound, between the fence and the wash; drive to the
    opposite side of the wash and drive along the edge until you pass the
    "back gate" of Sarge's compound and you'll see the postcard in a clear
    area just beyond. Find the area on your side of the wash that's about
    the same height as the area across the wash. Get a good, long running
    start to make the jump (this one's easier if you have at least one boost
    tank).

 -> Go out the right-hand back gate of the old drive-in (the back exit that
    leads to a dirt road) and follow the road around to the right and behind
    the fence you'll find a postcard.

 -> From Route 66, head to the firehouse and take a left. When the road makes
    a hard right turn (marked with yellow directional signs), jump up on the
    little ledge to the left and drive closely behind the fence along the lip
    of the wash to find the postcard.

Chapter 2 Postcards:
====================
These postcards are in Radiator Springs; but, you need at least one boost 
tank (complete "Boostin' with Filmore") in order to make the jumps.

 -> From the Doc's Lesson/Challenge event marker, go due north until you run
    into a cliff face. Turn right (east) and drive along the cliff until you
    find a narrow dirt path blocked by an orange and white barricade. Jump
    the barricade and follow the path. When you reach a T-intersection, go
    right to pick up a 2,000 point bonus icon, then head back the other way.
    You'll have to make a big jump onto a plateau, then another, shorter
    jump to a second plateau. Drive down off the western edge of this second
    plateau and keep going west to find the postcard.

 -> Exit the old drive-in by the dirt road in back. Follow this road straight
    into the series of criss-crossing washes behind Willy's Butte. You'll go
    around a fenced-in pit. After rounding the pit, look for a grass-covered
    slope to your right, this is a slope you do not have to jump up to. Drive
    up the slope and you'll find two dirt paths. Take the path that goes
    straight up from the slope (heading west) and follow it upwards. You'll
    have to make a short jump followed by a big jump to reach a large rock.
    From this large rock, find the big ramp on the east side and boost-jump
    it to a sloping rock. Drive up the sloping rock and go left on a path
    that winds around the inside of a butte. At the end is the postcard.

 -> From the previous postcard, find the opening to the west and make a
    couple of short jumps to another postcard.

 -> From the previous postcard, jump down from the north edge (there's a
    little down-ramp) to another rock, then down again right onto the dirt
    path you started on. Make the two jumps again to a large rock. This time,
    boost jump off the small ramp on the south side to reach another post-
    card.

Chapter 3 Postcards:
====================
These postcards are located in Ornament Valley, which is opened at the 
beginning of Chapter 3.

 -> From the Rustbucket arena, go west (toward Radiator Springs). Just past
    the Radiator Springs billboard, turn right onto a dirt road. Take the
    left path when the road forks. When you reach the concrete bridge, drive
    down into the gully and pick up a postcard from beneath the bridge.

 -> From the above postcard, drive out of the gully, which places you near
    an orchard. Drive into the orchard and work your way from field to
    field, following a path of bonus point tokens. When you find a broken
    cart, use it to jump the fence and continue following the tokens up
    on to a bluff, where you'll find a postcard.

Chapter 4 Postcards:
====================
These postcards are in Tailfin Pass, though most are only accessible after 
you've completed "Delinquent Road Hazards".

 -> Inside the Wheel Well.

 -> Going downhill from the Wheel Well, just before you cross a wood trestle
    bridge, a dirt road leads north. Follow it, making two large jumps (two
    boost tanks make these jumps easier) to reach the postcard.

*The following areas are not accessible until you have completed "Delinquent 
Road Hazards".*

 -> In the mine, near the bottom end, is a shortcut to the right that leads
    to some wood catwalks. Near the beginning of this shortcut, to the left,
    break through the wood barrier to find the postcard.

 -> At the top end of the mine, on the wood catwalk. You can reach the
    catwalk using a small ramp further down the mine.

 -> Take the side road next to the large waterfall and look for bonus point
    tokens up on the ridge to your left. Jump up on to the ridge and follow
    the dirt road up, taking the right-hand path when the road forks. You'll
    reach a ledge with the postcard next to the waterfall.

 -> From the above postcard, find the dirt path that continues behind the
    waterfall and follow it, making a jump. Stay on the dirt road as it
    hairpins down the mountain to reach the postcard.

When you've retrieved all 20 postcards, you can return to Lizzie's shop, but 
there's no additional reward other than the 20 trophies you get for the 
postcards.

This is a simple oval course around Radiator Springs. You're playing Sally in 
this race; but, she drives pretty much like McQueen. You shouldn't have any 
problems with this race. If you do this race before "Tractor Tipping", you'll 
unlock "Doc's Lesson: Powerslide".

"Tractor Tipping" is an exercise in stealth and pattern memorization. You 
control Mater around a field, driving up to tractors and blowing your horn to 
tip them over. You must avoid being caught in Frank's headlights, and you 
also must avoid searchlights, maneuver around obstacles and tip all the 
tractors in the level before time runs out. If you finish the first level of 
"Tractor Tipping" before "Sally's Sunshine Circuit", you'll unlock "Doc's 
Lesson: Powerslide".

To control Mater, simply move your left joystick (console versions) or arrow 
keys (PC version). Press the "Gas" button to blow your horn when you're right 
next to a tractor. You cannot control the camera (one of the difficulties of 
this mini-game), jump Mater or anything other than simple movement and 
blowing your horn.

You may need two or three tries at each level to memorize the locations of 
the tractors and the most efficient route to each. In some levels, you must 
tip the tractors in a specific order, as moving on blocks some of the 
tractors. In the higher levels, you can push carts into ditches to form 
bridges--just drive into the cart. Be careful you don't block a tractor!

Watch the "Frank meter" on the left of your screen. If it goes completely red, 
you're caught and you have to start the level over. Getting caught in Frank's 
headlights is an instant loss. Staying too long in a searchlight (or getting 
caught in too many searchlights) will also bring down the wrath of Frank.

Some general tips:
* Go into any trenches in the level and tip those tractors first
* Don't push any carts until you're sure you've cleared the trenches
* Drive through a level first and note the positions of the tractors
* Save tractors up on plateaus for last

 -> Level 1: 7 tractors, 3:00, 1 trophy

 -> Level 2: 8 tractors, 3:40, 1 trophy

 -> Level 3: 7 tractors, 3:00, 2 trophies
    Go ahead and push the cart in front of you immediately, tip the
    first tractor, then push the next cart.

 -> Level 4: 7 tractors, 3:20, 2 trophies
    Clear the trenches before pushing any carts.

 -> Level 5: 6 tractors, 4:00, 3 trophies
    Save the tractor on the center plateau for last, the other five
    are around the edges of the area.

 -> Level 6: 13 tractors, 4:05, 3 trophies
    You may have to do this one several times to get the most
    efficient order.

 -> Level 7: 8 tractors, 2:05, 4 trophies
    This is a race not only against the clock, but against Frank; he's
    coming right at you as the level begins, so quickly drive the other way
    and keep following the path, trying to stay ahead of Frank and tipping
    tractors on the way. Don't worry too much about the searchlights, waiting
    on them will only let Frank catch you.

 -> Level 8: 10 tractors, 3:40, 4 trophies

                       Luigi to the Rescue
            ######################################################

Welcome to your first Piston Cup race! These races are quite different from 
the others in the game. First, you're racing on a NASCAR-style track 
(basically a large oval). Second, there are a lot of other cars. Third, you 
have to complete 12 laps. Fourth, in the middle of the race, you have to make 
a pit stop and play a mini-game with Guido.

Keys to winning Piston Cup races:

-> Keep your speedometer north of 180 mph. You can't use boosts in Piston Cup
   races, so you can't afford to lose too much speed. Stay out from behind
   slower cars and keep yourself off the walls.

-> You can't Powerslide in Piston Cup races. Stay low in the turns. Try to
   take turns inside another car; when you start to slide outside, you'll
   hit the other car and bounce back inside. What you don't want to do is
   drive into the wall on the outsides of turns, you'll lose too much speed
   trying to get off the wall.

-> Get your pit stops under 20 seconds. Each pit stop is a set of four
   "button mashing" exercises. E.g. "Press B repeatedly", "Press B, X,
   A, B", "Rotate the control stick clockwise", etc. If you master these
   little mini-games, you'll receive a time bonus when you restart.



================================== CHAPTER 2 ================================

No new areas open as you begin Chapter 2; you're still confined to Radiator 
Springs. However, once you complete "Boostin' with Filmore", you'll have a 
boost tank and can reach some previously unreachable parts of Radiator 
Springs. (As well as have a lot more fun in the races.)

If you finish "Boostin' with Filmore" before "Luigi to the Rescue", you will 
unlock "North Desert Dash" and "Sarge's Boot Camp". This is a pretty standard 
race, you should be used to them by now. You'll be doing a lot of 
Powersliding and Tilting, so the new boost tank will come in handy. You get 
to keep the boost tank after finishing the race, so do this event as soon as 
Chapter 2 starts.

There are a couple of good shortcuts near the beginning of the race as you go 
through the gullies behind the Cozy Cone. The first is to your right as you 
enter the first wash; Tilt to turn hard right into it. The second is to your 
left after the big jump coming out of the gullies. Again, Tilt hard left to 
turn into it, then boost to make a couple of jumps into the old drive-in.

If you complete the first level of "Luigi to the Rescue" before finishing 
"Boostin' with Filmore", you will unlock "North Desert Dash" and "Sarge's 
Boot Camp".

"Luigi to the Rescue" is a timed collection game. Tires are scattered around 
Radiator Springs, and you must rescue them *and* return to Casa Della Tires 
before time runs out. Tires will show on your mini-map, and can be seen from 
a distance by the vibrating arrow floating over them. (The arrow moves up-
and-down.) Run over a tire stack to pick it up.

Later levels will generally require two or three (or more) tries to memorize 
the optimal retrieval order. Remember, you need time to get back to Casa 
Della Tires after you've picked up all the tires. (Note: Luigi can't boost.)

In general, pick up tires that are farther out of town, trying to move in a 
circular pattern. The tires are typically on or beside roads, so you can kind 
of follow a "race course", picking up tires as you go. There are a few tires, 
especially in level 8, that are positioned on ledges or in shortcuts and take 
a bit more work to get.

 -> Level 1:  6 tires, 1 trophy,   2:30 time limit
 -> Level 2:  7 tires, 1 trophy,   2:30 time limit
 -> Level 3:  8 tires, 2 trophies, 3:00 time limit

The Boot Camp is a series of timed obstacle courses. There are three courses, 
and you must complete three laps within a time limit on each course in order 
to move on to the next course. Complete the first course to open "Sarge's 
Off-Road Challenge". Each course follows the same track, only the obstacles 
change. Be sure to earn your first boost tank before attempting this 
challenge.

 -> Level 1: 4:00 time limit. Jump a couple of boards to start, then it's
    through a tunnel with a sharp left turn. Try to stay off the wall and
    catch some air coming out of the tunnel. When you reach the walls of
    tires, slow down to weave your way through, then boost out of the next
    turn.

 -> Level 2: 4:00 time limit. The walls of tires are worse here; don't try to
    speed through, you'll lose more time crashing into the walls than just
    picking your way around. After the walls and the ensuing jump, there's a
    180-degree turn. There's now wire over the turn lane; stay inside to
    avoid getting caught in the wire. After that turn, there's a narrow
    bridge over a dip in the course--take the bridge, even if you have to
    drive slowly. The pit underneath is filled with obstacles.

 -> Level 3: 4:15 time limit. The tire walls are gone on this course,
    replaced with a series of platforms you have to jump up. After that are
    some swinging tires, which actually aren't that hard to avoid. At the
    180-degree turn, you now want to jump up on the ledge to the left and
    try to stay up on it to avoid the barrels in the lower turn. The bridge
    is wider, but has a lot of holes. Either jump them or slow down and
    weave through them.

them, thus leaving yourself momentarily out-of-control. Go for them only if

you'll be doing a lot of Powersliding and Tilting around the turns.

            ######################################################

This race takes place on a flattened oval--the ends of the oval have short 
straightaways so you have four 90-degree turns instead of two 180-degree 
turns. The turns are only slightly banked, but since you're only turning 90 
degrees, this isn't much of a problem. Still, it's easy to slide into the 
outside walls, so take the turns hard inside and use a bit of tilt if you get 
too far outside. Try to take the turn inside of other cars so you'll bounce 
off them rather than the wall.



================================== CHAPTER 3 ================================

"Motor Speedway of the South" takes place at night, and it's still night when

            ######################################################

In each level of Hot Pursuit, you must run down three cars. To run down a car, 
track them down (they show on your mini-map) and get behind them. Your siren 
will start running and a red "chase meter" shows next to the car's icon on 
the left side of the screen. Deplete the chase meter by staying close behind 
the car; the closer you stay to the perp, the faster the chase meter runs 
down.

As the levels increase, the speed and dexterity of the cars increases as well. 
You should be able to easily finish the first level when you unlock the game; 
but, you may want to have extra boost tanks to finish the higher levels.

The cars all stay on the road; though, they will use anything that remotely 
qualifies as "road", including dirt paths. They won't jump to reach shortcuts, 
and they won't just go cross country. They follow a set course, so if you 
know where they are going (by watching them before chasing them) you can 
better stay on their tail.

Don't try to "head them off at the pass", getting too far away--even if 
you're using a shortcut to gain ground--will qualify as losing the car. Do 
try to cut corners a little bit, you don't have to stay on a course, as you 
do in races. Fortunately for you, there's no other traffic in the world area 
during this event.

If you lose a car, you only have to start chasing that car again, you don't 
have to restart the level. Once you do run down a car, that car remains in 
the world area; you can avoid chasing the same car again by watching for the 
arrows floating over them. Previously caught cars don't have the arrow.

This is a short-track race with you playing as Mater. Mater can Tilt and 
Powerslide, just like McQueen and has as much boost as you've earned thus far. 
The course is a figure-eight pattern with lots of jumps and high, banked 
turns. Because it's a short track, there's lots of bumping going on; 
finishing first is not an easy task. You're going to want to surge to the 
lead as quickly as possible and try to hold it because gaining ground late in

A standard race around Ornament Valley. The main feature of the valley is a 
large, narrow canyon which heavily penalizes poor Powersliding skills.

            ######################################################

This might just be the most difficult Piston Cup race. One end of the track 
has two 90-degree turns, similar to Motor Speedway of the South, but the 
other end is a 180-degree turn and it's not banked. You have to use Tilt, or 
slow down and stay inside other cars to avoid getting hung up on the wall. 
Obviously, a great pit stop (under 20 seconds) will help, but you're going to 
have to avoid mistakes to have any chance at crossing the finish line in 
first place.

You'll get to explore (at high speed) Tailfin Pass in this race up the 
mountain. There are only a couple of shortcuts, and they're not worth the 
bother (they'll probably slow you down more than help). Your only opponent is 
Sally, so you have to finish first to unlock Tailfin Pass and three new 
events. When you finish, you'll be in front of the Wheel Well, so trundle 
back into the motel to pick up a postcard, then jump straight into Tailfin 
Pass Circuit at the event marker out front.

            ######################################################

A standard race against Doc and some of your other friends. The course takes 
you around Radiator Springs, concentrating on the area of criss-crossing 
washes behind Willy's Butte. There are several shortcuts, and lots of narrow, 
walled-in racing--not to mention some chances for big air. You'll need a lot 
of Powersliding and Tilting finesses to finish first (and an extra boost tank 
wouldn't hurt).

A very short circuit around the top of Tailfin Pass. There's one tiny 
shortcut after the first turn. Since the course is so short, you won't have 
much time to recover should you have a bad crash. Drive on the conservative 
side rather than flat out.

A race around Tailfin Pass against DJ, Wingo and friends. You'll travel 
through an abandoned mine, which can present a special set of problems, 
including narrow passages and uphill racing. Avoid the shortcut in the mine 
unless you're really good at jumping. This is a good race to do quickly in 
Chapter 4 as you get an extra boost tank (the third one available) for 
winning, and you'll unlock some roads you need for getting the final four 
postcards for Lizzie.

Another short-track race on the Rustbucket course. This time, the course is 
two adjacent ovals--you can race around either oval or switch back-and-forth. 
You're also piloting a monster truck version of McQueen. Because your vehicle 
is jacked up, turns are a bit more problematic. You can Powerslide, but not 
Tilt. Try to take whatever track the other trucks are not using and boost 
over the ramps.

             UNLOCKS:  Lightning Strikes Back
            ######################################################

This is a three-stage mini-game. In the first stage, you control DJ and have 
to catch Mack on a crowded freeway. You have to catch up to Mack within two 
minutes. Hitting other cars or going off the road slows you down tremendously. 
You do have whatever boost tanks you've earned in the game thus far (up to 
three).

The key is to drive mistake-free rather than fast. There are three lanes of 
traffic, and one lane will always be open as you weave through the other cars. 
If you can avoid hitting other cars or going off the road and maintain a 
speed in excess of 100mph, you will have no problem completing this stage.

Stage 2 is similar; this time you're controlling Boost and you, again, have 
to catch Mack within 2:00. The twist is, when you catch Mack, you have to 
boost over a ramp at the same time that Mack, who is weaving back-and-forth, 
is in front of the ramp. You'll need to catch Mack with enough time to spare 
to time your jump, so drive a little fast when trying to run Mack down.

In stage 3, Wingo has two minutes to collect five boxes as they fall out of 
Mack's trailer. Catch up to Mack, which won't take long, then dodge anything 
that's not a yellow box. Hit the yellow boxes to add them to your total--when 
you have five, you win the mini-game.

Similar to "High Speed Heist", you're controlling McQueen and chasing down DJ, 
Boost, Wingo and Snot Rod. You have to bump each perp three times and collect 
a box of your stuff. Once you've hit all four cars three times within a time 
limit of 3:30, you win the game.

You can't boost, but that's OK, because speed isn't an issue. The other cars 
drive pretty slowly, so catching them is easy unless you hit a lot of traffic. 
You see, this time, you're going the wrong way on the freeway, so avoiding 
oncoming cars is the biggest challenge. As long as you can keep the number of 
traffic hits down to a handful, you'll win this game easily.

This is a short-track oval with high, banked turns. It is actually relatively 
easy, since you can go flat out all the time. This is good, because you have 
to win this time (not just place) to advance the story. Stay off the walls 
(pretty easy) and don't get caught behind a slow car (not quite as easy) and 
you'll win going away.

This is a sprint down Tailfin Pass. You start in front of the Wheel Well and 
go around the top of the Pass, then downhill. You'll go over what is, 
arguably, the biggest jump in the game--better make it or you're in trouble 
right from the start. Then downhill to the mine entrance, back uphill through 
the mine (ignore the shortcut) and downhill again next to the waterfall. The 
finish line is at the bottom, next to the waterfall, so be sure you're 
carrying a lead as you leave the mine.

Two trips around Ornament Valley, with a little side trip into part of

tracks, bear right instead of left. Boost through the banked turn and you'll

This is your last race, a relatively easy Piston Cup. There are three turns 
on the track. (Ever see a triangular race course? Didn't think so.) Each is 
well banked so you can go full speed all the time. There are nice, long 
straightaways to get yourself out of any trouble that develop during a turn. 
Stay inside, keep out of traffic, pull off a great Pit Stop and you'll win 
the race. You have to win to officially finish the story.

That's it! You're finished with Cars. If you don't have 250 trophies yet, you 
can go back and re-run races and play mini-games until you've earned all the 
trophies.

Not that you actually, like, get anything for doing so...

Compact is a shorter, easier version of the Story than Full-Size. There are 
two primary differences:

1) The races are much easier as your opponents drive more slowly, especially 
on the last lap. The Full Size races aren't the most challenging in the world, 
the Compact races are specifically designed for young or novice gamers. 
Ironically, the mini-games are no less challenging and are apt to prove the 
most frustrating.

2) There are fewer events arranged in three chapters rather than five. The 
chapter/event breakdown is:

 -> Chapter 1:
    * Radiator Springs Grand Prix
    * Radiator Cap Circuit
    * Lizzie's Postcard Hunt
    * Sally's Sunshine Circuit
    * Tractor Tipping
    * Doc's Challenge
    * Palm Mile Speedway

 -> Chapter 2:
    * Boostin' with Filmore
    * Luigi to the Rescue
    * Sarge's Off-Road Challenge
    * Mater's Backwards Lesson
    * Sheriff's Hot Pursuit
    * Rustbucket Race-O-Rama
    * Sun Valley International Speedway

 -> Chapter 3:
    * Sally's Wheel Well Sprint
    * Delinquent Road Hazards
    * Monster Truck Mayhem
    * Chick's Challenge
    * High Speed Heist
    * Lightning Strikes Back
    * Los Angeles International Speedway

Obviously, there are fewer trophies available (177 rather than 250).
