Something is happening with the game. To find out, use the easy find
code and type in WTF.

You see the catagories? I split them up, just so you can get an idea of
what the topics in that category discuss.


The Beginning FAQ and game info gives a brief overview of the game and
the FAQ.


The Basic Stats and Info section gives information about items, cars,
etc. that are in the game.


The Tips and Other Info About the Game section gives little tips and
stuff on how to master the game.


The People's Section section has info that was mainly sent in, and
posted for the people only.


The Ending Info section just gives E-mail information, version history,
directions for making a FAQ on Gamefaqs, etc.

                                                       4.) Overview

This is just about the game and how I got it and how I wrote this FAQ.

Now, I love cars. Any type, any model, any color. I wanted something
that looked good and was fast. Need for Speed Underground 2 didn't
quench my thirst for speed, since many of those cars can barely make
it past 200MPH. Gran Turismo 4 didn't quench my thirst either, because
all of the cars looked like my grandma bought them. Now, I am a
full contributor on Gamefaqs. I have four FAQs and use the message
boards frequently. At the time, I had one FAQ. I was going to check up
on it, when I saw this ad for Midnight Club 3. I looked at the ad
because I thought it looked cool. But, then, the ad said, "Customize
over 50 cars,". I looked at the list, and I saw Lamborghini. That
really caught my attention. Now, my birthday was coming up. I was 
grilling my mom to get the game. I finally got it, it came as a
present. I tried it out. I instantly loved it. I was stuck on a part,
though. So, I went to Gamefaqs for some advice. All I saw were FAQs
with pictures, none using real text and giving advice. I was purely
shocked. I thought then, I'm gonna make a FAQ for this. I had a little
wimpy FAQ, which of course got rejected. After a weeks worth of
refining, I finally made a good FAQ, which got accepted. Then, the flow
of E-mails started instantly. This I expected because I had the only
FAQ if that game, and it was a new game. I was happy. But then,
disaster fell. I was playing, and it suddenly kicked off. I spent a
week trying to fix it, but nothing worked. I finally had an intense
cleaning session, and I finally fixed it. The story you have just read
is the success story of this FAQ.

                                                       5.) Real World
                                                         Help (DAHK)

Now, car games have to make the cars in their games like they are in
real life (or the car company will kick the game maker's ass). This
section discusses that.


Now, let's start off with weight. Of course, luxary sedans, trucks, and
SUVs will have terrible handling because of their heavy weight. Tuners
and exotics are increadibly light, so they probably will spin out even
if you hit a mailbox (this is especially true with exotics). Sport
Bikes and Choppers have good handling, because you can lean into turns
and take them better, since you only have two wheels to worry about.
The problem with two wheeled vehicles, though, is that they're
EXTREMELY light, making it easier to fall off, resulting in huge time
loss. Muscle cars are OK, nothing bad to say about them. The only thing
you can say is that they aren't the masters in really anything, since
their engine and stuff is from a non-advanced era of car making.


Let's talk about price now. Exotics will be EXTREMELY expensive,
because they are so powerful and so rare. Tuners, Muscle cars, Trucks,
and SUVs will be cheaper because you're not really paying for much.
Choppers for some reason are kind of expensive. Sport Bikes, though,
are EXTREMELY cheap and you can buy them for less than 20,000$.


Let's now talk about performance and tuning. Of course, we all know the
lower the car, the less air resistance you get? That's why it is good
to put on bumpers that ride low and lower your car's ride height to as
low as it can go. This helps with handling, mostly, but it can affect
speed. Putting air pockets, getting a hood that lets air pass through,
and getting a spoiler are all important for aerodynamics.


Let's talk about wheels. The more rubber on the ground, the better.
What you need to do is widen your tires to as wide as they can go. This
seriously helps with traction. For motorcycles, make sure the tires
you get for your motorcycle has lots of grooves, so it can drive better
off-road. Now, make your tires as thin as possible. This helps with
handling also, as all of the tire is being used, instead of a little.
Use this diagram for help. To make them thin, go to tire profile in
the body shop (under wheels), and make sure the tire is set to 1.

An overly inflated tire looks like this...

 /   \
|     |
|     |
|     |

As you can see, the sides of the tire can still touch the road, but,
well, they arent.

This is a rightly inflated tire...

|     |
|     |
|     |
|     |

As you can see, all of the tire that can be used is on the ground,
making for better traction.


Let's talk about jumps. In the air, there is nothing your tires can
touch. This means acceleration and braking do nothing in the air. The
only way you can steer your car is using in air control, discussed 
later in this FAQ. Now, there is a way to propel your car. If you use
nitro in the air, the gas coming out of the exhaust should speed you


Let's talk about impact. By this, I mean crashes. Now, it's obvious you
don't want to crash. You may crash sometimes, and this part discusses
that. I don't want to be too long, so i'll make a chart. 10 is the
most damage, 1 is the least.

        Tuner|Muscle|Luxary Sedan|Truck|SUV|Exotic|Sport Bike|Chopper 
Cop Car    8 |  8   |     7      |  6  | 6 |   10 |   10     |   10

Side stuff means the stuff on the sidewalks, tree B. means those trees
that you can't destroy, Dump T. Means those Green Onyx trucks you see,
and Snow T. Are those trucks with the shovel thingy in the front.

As you can see, Exotics, Sport Bikes, and Choppers take immense damage,
while Trucks and SUVs take little damage.

Paint Job

                                                      10.) Races (DHJN)

Here are all of the types of races found in Arcade mode.

Autocross- A circuit race where barriers are used instead of 
checkpoints. The competitor with the best lap time wins.

Track- Same as autocross, but you race other people at the same time
instead of trying to beat their times.

Capture the Flag- Cars race to get a flag shown on the map, and then 
bring it back to base. Other cars can steal the flag by ramming the car
who has it.

Paint- Checkpoints are laid out all over the city. When a car crosses
a checkpoint, it gets painted in the color the car was given. Other 
cars may paint over other people's paint.

Cruise- Just roaming the city.

Frenzy- A race where you race without brakes or special powers. What 
you have to do is dodge cars and get points. You get a boost of Nitro
every fifteen seconds. You keep going until time runs out.

Ordered- A race where you race through a series of checkpoints. Each
checkpoint must be passed in the correct order to win. Most career 
races are ordered.

Circuit- Same as ordered except there are many laps running through the
same checkpoints until the race is over.

Tag- The last car to reach a checkpoint is it. Cars score points on how
close they are to the it car.

Unordered- Same as ordered, except you can run through the checkpoints
in any order you want.

Here are the race catagories for career mode.

City race- A single race where you get easy money. Symbolized on the 
map by a red dot.

Club race- A race where you need a specific car to enter. Symbolized on
the map by a yellow star.

Tournament- A series of races where the person with the most points 
wins. Symbolized on the map by a golden trophy.

Street racer- A race where a street racer leads you to a race and you
begin racing. The racer is symbolized on the map by a blue arrow.
                                                     11.) Power Ups

Here are the power-ups (found in arcade mode).

Disrupter- Blurres a car's vision.

Go- Disables a car's brakes.

Ice- Makes it seem like the car is driving on ice.

Nitro- Adds a nitro boost to your reservoir.

Pulse- Pushes opponents away from you.

Quad Damage- Makes a car take four times the impact he would normally
take, meaning he will eventually have to reset himself, resulting in
huge gain of time.

Reverse steering- Switches around steering controls for an opponent.

Shield- Makes you immune to power ups. Also prevents you from losing
the flag in capture the flag mode.

Stealth- Makes you invisible and invincible for a couple seconds.

Stop- Engages an opponents brake and handbrake instantly.

                                                       12.) Powers 

Each class of car has a special power. These powers will be discussed


Muscle cars and choppers have it.

What it does is it sends out a sound wave that knocks all other cars
out of the way.

Useful for sending civilian cars into other racers, also for clearing
any spots where traffic will obviously be a problem.

Meter charges when you pull off drifts.

Activated by pressing L3 when fully charged.


SUVs, trucks, and luxary sedans have it.

What it does is make the car impervious to damage, and it also sends
any car you hit miles away.

Useful for sending civilian cars into other racers, also for sending
other racers into walls and stuff.

Meter charges when you hit traffic and anything on the sidewalks.

Activated by pressing L3 when fully charged.


Tuners, Sportbikes and Exotics have it.

What it does is slow down time, making it easier to maneuver through
small spaces.

Useful for weaving through traffic and small spaces.

Meter charges when you drive without hitting anything.

Activated by pressing L3 when fully charged.

Slipstream Turbo

All vehicles have it.

What it does is give you a quick burst of speed.

Useful for speeding ahead of opponents.

Meter charges when you drive closely behind an opponent car.

Activated by pressing R2 when fully charged.

Two Wheel Driving

All vehicles except motorcycles have this.

What it does is transfer your weight to one side, allowing you to
drive on two wheels. Also prevents other opponents getting a 
slipstream turbo off slipstreaming your car.

Useful for getting through tight spaces, and preventing other cars
from getting a slipstream turbo.

This is available without charging.

Activated by pressing L1 and pushing the left analog stick left or 

Weight Transfer

Motorcycles have this.

What it does is lean you into a turn, making it easier to turn.

Useful for getting through turns fast.

This is available without charging.

Activated by holding the L1 button while taking a turn.

In-Air Control

All vehicles have this.

What it does is tilt your vehicle in the air so it can have a better

Useful for gaining speed after a jump.

This is available without charging.

Activated by holding the L1 button and tilting the left analog stick.


All vehicles have this.

What it does is slide your vehicle through a turn.

Useful for taking turns faster.

THis is available without charging.

Activated by tilting the right analog stick in the direction you want
to go and pressing the R1 button.

*This can only be gained by winning a certain club race.

                                                     13.) Tips (DSLK)

Here are some tips to get you through the game.

*If you mess up bad during a race, keep going. With decent distance,
you can still catch him. In those situations, use your special powers,
use nitro (if you have it), and get a slipstream turbo.

*Watch for red lights. They mean danger.

*For some reason, even if you have the same car as the other person,
you can still go faster.

*Making your car cool isn't as important as performance. It's better
to have a car that looks like it came from your grandma's garage that
goes 200MPH than one of those cars rappers roll in that is slow as
a snail.

*Police are the worst. They set up road blocks (meaning they block a 
road, although you can get around that), ram you into walls, and cut
you off. if your speedometer is flashing red and blue, you have a cop
on your tail.Try ramming the cops into the walls. Also, some of the 
cops are in motorcycles, so you can knock them off easily.

*Hold R1 and X at the start line. Then, let go as the race starts.
Why? Your car will start out at 60 MPH instead of 0 that way!

*Some tuning parts are only available to certain car classes.

*You can't slipstream motorcycles.

From Kurtcobain856...

*I'd recommend to anyone buying the Lancer Evolution vIII when it is 
availible. it handles very good and is the cheapest of the class C 

From big_upps...

*For a really good boost of speed be sure to get a nice slipstream, 
and then when that runs out, hit nitro. If you're on a bike, then do a 
wheelie. That's like ultra mega speed boost.

*when you are in the second city, get all the club races and then take, 
say, the 300C and go back to the first city. Since your familar with 
that city, it's gonna be alot easier in the club races.

From rio_fire...

*If you go to garages and select manage vehicle, you can duplicate it 
as many times as you want. After that, you just rename it and it will 
show-up in arcade under the name that you gave it. So, you can make 6 
differently decked out Evo's and race them against each other. Also, 
make sure you wait to duplicate until you have everything that you want
for that vehicle. If you don't wait then you will have too either not 
do anything to the car or buy the parts for each version separately. 
Remember, just because the vehicle can be customized or upgraded 
further in an area doesn't mean that it needs to be, Example: '68 GTO 
has the speed it needs w/o the 2nd upgrade for it's class but it does 
need more handling, so if it has too much speed for its handling then 
leave the speed alone but upgrade handling and acceleration.

From reaper933...

*When on a motorcycle or in a muscle car if you do a catwalk while 
still doing your burnout, you'll slow down when your front tire hits 
the ground.

*When using roar on a chopper or muscle car if an opponent is near to 
your car it will sweep them to the side of the road like it would 
traffic (this is effective to make them miss jumps or to crash into a 
building). Roar also makes cars swerve to the side of the road, but not 
always away from you, so if your on the side of the road cars will 
swerve towards you. Roar also makes your car not turn for a second when
it hits and then usually ends us in you doing a powerslide and since 
the computer likes to use special moves for you before or during sharp 
corners it can be useful to hit L3 right before corners like this(this 
is also the case for argo).

*While in zone your car actually handles better but if you turn in too 
sharply when you come out of zone, your car won't be moving as fast as 
it noramlly would.

*It is usful to save nitro fo crucial times in the race when you hit 
other vehicles or walls so you can get back up to speed very quickly.

*The class of car you get affects how many nitros you can receive.

*I find that a slipstream turbo allows you to stay at a high top speed 
longer than nitros which brings you back down to speed quicker but with
a slipstream turbo corners and hitting objects slow you down more than 

*The best tuners, muscle cars, choppers, and SUV/trucks end in class B.
There are only sport bikes and exotics in class A.

From drag0nrick...

*For optional races, the only thing I noticed is that you get a higher 
amount of money for winning them, and if you get there in time but you 
lose the race, you can still race it later.

*Your nitro's get refilled every lap in a circuit race, so you've got 
a lot more nitros to use.

*If you're doing optional reaces in career, you'd use the fastest 
vehicle that you have because then the amount of money you'll when you 
win is higher.

From eellyy...

*Also I have noticed something with the game...I 
played at a friend's house and got up to around 30% 
then I bought the game when I went home.  I had to 
beat everything all over again.  I recomend beating as many
of the category races as you can (unbeatable street
racers, etc.) before upgrading to newer cars etc.  I
made the mistake of getting a gto before I won any of
the muscle car races, and now they are all really a
lot harder.  

*I unlocked pearlescent paint in San Diego.  I think if you hold
off on beating Vanessa the 2nd set of races, until you
have won as many club races as you can (and I won a
lot of them, more than half of each) you can stay in
San Diego a lot longer and things stay easier.

From Khabibuln...

* If you hit another car or wreck and your car comes to a complete 
stop, burnout (R1 + X) for a second or two rather than just pressing X
to accelerate. This will cause you start off anywhere up to 60mph, 
seriously cutting back on the acceleration time and the time it takes 
to get up to top speed.  

*I found that it's better not to spend money on new cars until you 
unlock class B (unless there is a car you are just dying to own).  You 
will win one of each class of car (luxury sedan, chopper, muscle car, 
etc.) in the tournament races in San Diego and Atlanta and should have 
no problem getting to Detroit with these cars.

*Going along with tip #1,  If you have nitro boosts left it doesn't 
hurt to use one after you burnout.  this should be enough to catch up 
with the cars in the rear of the pack.  Then it's just a matter of 
using slipstream turbo to catch up with the leader.

*At the starting line when you hold R1 and X to burnout, try letting 
go of R1 for just an instant then press and hold it again really fast. 
If you do it correctly you should hear you tires squeal at a higher 
pitch and you car will leave the starting line and instantly accelerate
up to 40mph more than just holding x
  E.g. I am in San Diego with a 300c with all level 2 upgrades.  With a 
  normal burnout (just pressing x) I start off with a pause in 
  acceleration around 60mph.  When I do the quick release and press on
  R1 I leave the starting line and instantly accelerate to 95mph.

From Enilnomi29...

*Everybody talks about selling cars, but you never have to. I beat the 
game without selling a single car because you win so many. And no, I 
didn't use any of the city races. I used all career to get my money. 
The only cars I had to buy were SRT4, 69 Camaro, 98 Supra, and the 
McLaren F1 LM. All the rest were won. 

*A little tip if you guys didn't know, never quit a race just 'cause 
you aren't winning. Get to know the course. You still get money up to 
third place, though.

From Gx Viper...


From CoolGangsta...

*There is a race in Atlanta called Back and There, you can do that race
over and over again for about 10 times and it is always on the same
location. Common price-money is 1,800$.

                                                      14.) A Good Way 
                                                      to Start (NCSX)

Here is a good way to start the game.

Okay, now, lets start off by buying a car. I think we should buy the
Dodge SRT-4. We need something that can accelerate, after all. Then,
buy as many parts as you can with the money left over, just make sure
they're performance parts. Then, you get rocketed into a race. This
shouldn't be too hard, since you have the car with the best 
acceleration there. After that, challenge Bishop (find him on the map)
to a race. Beat his crew, then win the tournament. You get a Chrysler
300C, DUB edition. This is important, because it performs nicely, and
looks SWEET! Now, this isn't tuned, so take the money from the 
tournament and tune the Chrysler. You shouldn't need parts to make it
look good, so that's some money saved. Then, do the same with Carlos.
He has a muscle car, so better watch out. Once he's done, take on the
tournament. Take the '57 Belair you get and tune the crap out of it.
After that, do the club races. Then, hop back into your SRT-4, and
race Vanessa. Once that's done, take on the tournament, then take out
the club races you can enter. After that, you should be OK!

Alternative from Dancingbooger10:

I found that it really helps to buy a tuner and beat Vanessa in the 
beginning.  Then win the tournament to get the Lexus.  Sell the old car
for about 20,000 and upgrade the crap out of it.  This should give you 
an excellent car to start with and allows you to easily beat other 

Alternative from big_upps:

I think you should take the IS300 you win and race about 15 open (red 
smoke) races, save up money, tune up the IS300 as much as the game 
will let you, then keep using that car for all the tuner races and to 
gain money in the open races (I used it to the last tuner races in the 
second city ). And then when you need money, just go back to the first 
city with the IS300 and race the open races.

Alternative from Hart Attack0389...

personally, the hardest part of the game was beating the muscle cars 
portion, because i put that off until the end of the game....I would 
suggest starting out with a muscle car, and beating that portion first.

                                                      15.) Music (DFHS)

                                                           It! (DUHS)

I was bored one day. I decided to cause some destruction. Found out
some tips from that little series of shenanigans, and now here's a
section about it. You can do this is you're bored, or if you can't win
a race.

Remember to watch out! There are numerous situations where you could
end up being the victim instead of the villian.

The simplest one is just to ram them as hard as you can. Since these
people are afraid, they might run away (they won't dodge it if you're
coming at 500MPH at their side). This is only when you two are driving
side by side. It's funny seeing them hit walls (or go off freeway
bridges, that's funny as hell).

Another is to use agro. How? Duh. Kick it up, and hit 'em dammit! A fun
way to do this is to try to send them into other objects!

Another way is to use roar. Don't use it on straights, it does about
nothing. Use it on, say, a jump. They will miss the jump, have to go
way back, accelerate, and make the jump. Too bad you're not going to be
around for the hilarity!

Another funny thing is to make them miss a turn. How, you ask? Well,
rear end them as hard as you can before a turn. They will be going so
fast, they couldn't possibly make the turn. This would also slow you
down for the turn, so it's a good deal.

Another good way is to get the cops on their ass. This takes a while
to perfect, and doesn't always work, but it's funny to have AI cars
taken down by the NYPD. Just ram them into a police car, that should 

Dende5416 found this...

Try using Roar when or right before going over a free-way on the
over-passes or along side it. Since there is often a break-able fence 
there, you can sometimes force AI opponents down into the highway. 

                                                       17.) Awards

This is a really stupid setion, but it's just here for the fun of it.
We will declare what cars are the best, and here there are no long
speeches (unless the exhaust note talks). This will be in total points,
so keep that in mind.

Alright, this is the interactive section. What does that mean? It means
you can show off the most cars you have, the most powerful car you have,
the most money you had, ect. You will get all credit, but if someone 
sends in a better record than yours, then yours will be replaced with 
the better record. To destroy his record, just comply with the 
guidelines and beat your opponent. (F.E. You put 100,000$. Someone 
E-mails me that he has 200,000$ . You have to get more money than him, 
or you lose the spot. You may E-mail me to ask if the record is better 
or not)
My E-mail address is [email protected] And, title the E-mail 
Midnight Club Record, so I know what it is. Oh, and don't say you did 
something when you really didn't. That's just weak and cheap.
If you have the same record as somebody else, they got there first and,
not to be rude, I won't post yours. Sorry!

Also, I am an active partaker in this, so I might be the one to beat
your records.

                                                      20.) FAQs (DSGH)

1.) Q.I would like to know if you know a way I can race my cars against
my brothers cars in Midnight Club 3. (Fist_82D)

A. I don't think so. Try customizing it again on the other memory card.

2.) Q. I'm  83% done with the game and I still have not gotten the body 
upgrades for the 96 Impala. Can you tell me at what point of the game I
earn those upgrades for that specific car? (Dat_one_robby)

A. YOu can't earn them by percentages. You need to enter certain races
to get the parts. I think the race is in San Diego.

3.) Q. When do you get spinners? (Sxyitalianguyxxx)

A. After the tenth or eleventh tuner or luxary sedan club race in 
Atlanta. Lean more towards the luxary sedan club race.

Encaenmi says...

Beat Dre three times.

4.) Q. There are no more races left and I can't get the class A cars.
What should I do? (Joplew)

A. You need to beat to beat all four or five first racers in Detroit
(I don't really remember how much racers you had to beat). This answer
was supplied by Supra_Gtr_9.

5.) Q. When do I unlock the performance parts for the Viper GTS-R?  
I've been trying every race that I can but they won't unlock!

A. I'm not sure what class the Viper is, but I'm guessing a Class B 
Tuner. Now, you have a tuner car. Go around San Diego, Atlanta, and 
Detroit and make sure that you didn't miss one. What the common problem
is is that people miss the club races, since, if ou don't have the 
car, the star is hidden in gray. Also, check for street racers. The 
performance parts are supposed to only be won in races.

6.) Q. Hey, I can't seem to beat the first unordered race against 
Lamont.  How can I beat them when they know exactly where to go?

A. Simple. Just make sure YOU also know where to go. What you need to
do is follow the lead car until you know EXACTLY where to go to finish.
Then, get a slipstream turbo and pass him.

7.) Q. When do I get the 300C DUB Edition? (Inferno_Warrior)

A. Beat Bishop in San Diego. Then, enter the tournament right after.
After winning the tournament, you should have the 300C DUB Edition.

8.) Q. how do I get the typable codes for the cheat menu in options?

A. Dude, I don't know. Go to Cheat Codes and Secrets under Midnight 
Club 3 DUB edition (this is on gamefaqs, not the game). You should find
the link next to FAQs and guides. They have a whole crapload of cheats.
Don't rely on them too much, though, I tried a lot of those codes and 
they didn't work for me. You really shouldn't need cheats, though.

9.) Q. I have now completed 30% of the game and are currently in 
Atlanta. I am stumped on my first SUV races, (The ones with the stars).
My Cadillac Escalade has all level one parts and no matter how good or 
flawless I race I can't keep or catch up with the other racers. They 
seem to be faster than me even when I use nitrous or when I get the 
chance to slipstream. Can you help and maybe give me some advice?

A. Yes, I can. Now, every time you upgrade your horsepower a certain 
amount, the skill level of the AI drivers changes. F.E. If you take a 
Hummer H1 against a Pontiac GTO, then the GTO will have little skill, 
although, if you take a McLaren up against a GTO, the GTO will seem 
like Mario Andretti's driving it. You're probably on the border. Just 
keep trying, and you should win. If you have problems, sell the 
Escalade and get a better performing SUV. If you still have problems, 
then just forget about the SUV races for a while and catch your breath.
I had a problem, too, so your not alone.

Alternatve from big_upps...

Sell the esclade and buy the Benz. It's better to get skilled with the 
SUVS because they handle odd. Drive around the city at high speeds and 
just use it in all the open races as you can. You know, practice makes 

10.)  Q. Do you have a new walkthrough for Midnight Club 3?

A. No, I don't. Sorry. What I do have is an assisting guide to start 
the game. I don't believe I have enough information to write a whole 
game walkthrough. I could help you out using tips, though.

11.) Q. I would like to know if the game is worth buying. 

A. Actually, yes, it is. Although, in NFSU2, you have to customize 
cheap cars. In Midnight Club 3 DUB edition, you can do the same thing 
to a Mclaren as you can to a Miata in NFSU2. It's definetly worth the 

12.) Q. How do I give you car stats? (sadpanda103)

A. Go to the garage. Then, go into the performance shop. At the 
bottom-left hand corner, there should be a bar graph, with numbers 
under it. Give me those numbers.

13.) Q. Can you unlock the police Motorcycle? (Pipechapa)

A. You get the san diego bike after winning all San Diego, Atlanta, and
Detroit tournaments. You also get one after completely beating the game

14.) Q. I beat both Bishop and Vanessa in the three race series, but I
didn't get the cars like you I doing the right thing or 
what? (rtaylormercer)

A. Did you enter the tournaments that popped up after you beat the 
racers? Do that, win, and get the cars.

15.) Q. I just recieved the LexusIS300, and have put about 8,000 into 
it.. but with the SRT-4 I have put a lot more. I'm doing the tournament
now which will unlock the 300C...whats ur opinion on what I should do? 
Sell Dodge SRT4, and IS300 and dump all the money into 300c?

A. No. You have two tuners, sell one of those. Keep the 300C and either
the Lexus or the Dodge. The reason is if you sell one of those, you 
will have to buy another tuner for the tuner club race.

16. Q. I was wondering when the pearlescent paint is unlocked.

A. After a race in Atlanta. Not sure which one, but I think it's either
the Tuners or the Luxary Sdan club races.

From Khabibuln..

You win it in the second set of Vanessa races.

17. Q. I just got my motercycle on Midnight Club 3 and I can't tune it 
up, but thats not the only thing. I can't tune up my El Camino or my 
Lancer. Can you help? (lilpat1988)

A. Yep. You haven't won the parts yet. The race to win 'em is in San 
Diego, I think.

18. Dude, the first 3 days playing the game I got 50% done, and then it
got erased. Then, I didn't play it that much so i got back up to 29%. 
Then, my friend erased it so right now i have 9%. What's going on?

A. Two things could have happened.

1.) Someone went into browser and erased the game save

2.) You forgot to save.

19.)  Is there anything I need to know about this game that would 
really help me in the beginning? (bigdiesel97)

A. I don't want to give spoilers out, but a little piece of advise from
me is that your first car should be the Dodge SRT-4, since it is the 

20.) Q. Ok, I am in Atlanta currently and when i pull out a luxury, 
sport bike, tuner, anything there will be about 3 or 5 stars for each 
on the map. So, I go to one of the stars and i'll beat it to race 10 of
14, and then all 5 stars will go away on the map for that certain type 
of car. Will this affect the percentage of the game for me or will I be
able to race them all in Detroit? (Bgunther3)

A. Ahh, dude, that's supposed to happen. Each star represents a race. 
For example, there are three stars on the board. You go to a star and 
race three races. The stars are gone because you already raced the race
the star was representing.

21.) Q. Is there any way to lower your skill rating? (Brt2512)

A. Losing races, I believe.

22.) Q. I Was Wondering When Should I Trade Mt 1st Car In. I Started 
With The SRT-4. Should I Wait Until The End Of The City?? Because I 
Want Something A Little Faster (russel.lester.newl)

A. After you can buy a better tuner, which may be before the end of the

KamikazeslayerX says...

I used it up until the 11th tuner racer and it beat ALL of Atlanta and
San Diego for me! Just get good with that. Use it, don't sell it, until
you can buy a Class B tuner. I got the Elise and that just handled the 
rest. Also, since I am a Tuner/bike racer, those are all I really use. 
I don't know if this helps, but tell people not to win the Skyline it's
not worth driving, maxed parts and stuff. Yes, it is good for class C, 
but that is it my Elise can burn it. SO I don't know if this counts as
a record or anything but taking a beggining car and geting all the way
up to detriot and beating the first racer but yes I think that as a tip
is to keep the SRT4 until you can't win anymore. Like I said, it got me 
totally through the first two cities, and after that you have saved 
major money by not buying new cars, then you can buy the Viper and tune
that up.

23.) Q. Do The Opponents Get Harder When You Upgrade? 

A. Yes.

24.) Q. Can You Keep Racing In The Same City Or Can You Only Race With 
The Opponents Once? (russel.lester.newl)

A. You can keep racing in the same city, and you can beat opponents 
again after you've already beaten them, although I'm not sure of this.

25.) Do You Know How Much The 69 Camaro Costs? (russel.lester.newl)

A. 49,990$.

26.) Q. Can I get the Skyline by just repeatedly racing the tuner car 
races in San Diego or do I have to get it by racing on the 3 cities?

A. You need to beat the complete tuner series to get the Skyline.\

27.) Q. How can I unlock the level 2 tuning parts for the 300C?

A. Enter a certain race in San Diego, not sure which one.

28.) Q. How can I unlock the class C cars? (encaenmi)

A. Enter a certain race in San Diego, not sure which one.

29.) Q. what is the purpouse of the wheelie bars? (encaenmi)

A. The wheelie bars are just for looks, but with hydraulics they become
a balancer.

30.) Q. I have a problem with my chevy bel air, I have already tuned it
with all the first level parts and it doesn't seem to stand up to my 
SR-4 or my 300C, so what can I do to make it faster? (encaenmi)

A. Get level 2 tuning parts. That's all you can do.

31.) Q. I'm in San Diego and I need to get a bike. How can I do this?

A. Race in San Diego (not the city races), until you see you can race
Phil. Once you can race him, do so. After you beat him, a tournament
should come up. Win that, and you got yourself a chopper, boy!

32.) Q. I was starting in San Diego, and entered I believe CIty Tournament 
where there are 14 races in one and 15 in another. Each one I entered, 
it say Race 1 out of 14, for ex. When you win menu goes to "continue 
next race and other options." I get to and win Race 5 and then I go 
back to Cruise mode in City. Is there something wrong with my game? 
Why does it say Race 1, 2, 3,4 5 out of 14 in one and same thing out of
15 in another and I only get 5 races and it stops? Does it continue 
later on in game or different city? Do you have to come in 1st on 1st 
try to do all 14 or 15 races? (GKESTEL)

A. That's supposed to happen. Tournaments and club races are split up 
between the three cities, so you're not bored to death racing fifteen 
races in a row.

33.) Q. what should I do with  $184,712 (I donít have class A)?

A. Buy the Dodge Viper and tune the performance to the max.

34.) Q. Hey, i was just wondering when I could get performance upgrades for my 
Ducati SS 1000. (aznpottymouth777)

A. No idea.

35.) Q. I also wanted to know when I could unlock more sport bikes.

A. Beat Angel in Detroit.

36.) Q. I was wonder what exactly do I have to do to be able to upgrade the 
body on my Class A cars and the last few cars that I unlock in the game. Like 
the 95 F1 LM (class A exotics) or Sixteen (class B luxury sedans). I got it 
100% unlocked and have all the Rockstar symbols, but I still cant upgrade the 
body or and I still get unavailable when trying upgrade the rims to 21" on the 
95 F1 LM...and unavailable for 26"/27" rims for Sixteen. Is there something I 
forgot to do? (bofum4me)

A. FOr the performance parts, the problem ihat they already have the upgrades.
I mean, the Mclaren F1 LM can't be upgraded more than 0.01 points, so there's
no point in upgrading. For your second question, the car's are either too low
or they have too big tires to get the rims that big.

37.) Q. I was wondering about the rockstar logos you are
supposed to look for in each city.  What happens when
you find them? are they worth the trouble of looking

A. I'm not sure what you get, but I advise beating the game before
worrying about those.

From Khabibuln...

After getting the twelve in San Diego, you get the rockstar flag vinyl.
After getting the twelve in Atlanta, you get the Rockstar license
plate. After getting the twelve in Detroit, you get the race starter
girls as motorcycle riders.

38.) Q. Any tips on how to do the tournement In Detroit? It's an 
autocross one to win 20,000. (mike0909)

A. Pick the car you have that has the best handling. A sport bike would
not be a bad idea.

39.) Q. How do you get a Chevy Bel Air? (ulashh)

A. Beat Carlos. THen, win the tournament that comes right after. That
should give you a Bel Air.

40.) Q. Which car is El Diablo Rigid? (ulashh)

A. A class B Chopper.

41.) Q. I am in the "Hotlanta Tournament" and have been doing fine
till now. The track in this tourny has many sharp, 90ļ turns and
unfortunatly this is my weakness. I was wondering if you had any
advice or tips, what buttons to hit, strats to improve on turns like

A. Use a sport bike, turn while holding the L1 button. If the turn
still bugs you, then, use handbrake (R1). There is also a brake button.

42.) Q. Do the Knock Off rims spin?

A. N0, they don't.

43.) Which truck should I buy first (I only have up to class C)? I have
the Escalade EXT.

A. Either keep the Escalade and tune that, or sell the Escalade and get
the G500.

44.) Q. My friend told me about a airplane engine he got. How do you 
unlock it? (baller_atl)

A. Uhh... That's... interesting. I'm sure there's no airplane engine 
in this game. I don't even think airplane engines can fit in cars...

45.) Q. i am in a Luxary Sedan and i got zone instead of Agro! WTF?

A. Calm down. The Lexus SC430 and the Mercedes CL500 get zone instead
of Agro.

46.) Q. I was wondering, are there any upgrades you can make to your 
car music system (ex. speakers, cd players, dvd players, etc.)?

A. No.

Alright, I'm starting to get a little ticked off with the E-mails, so
here's a little section on reminders...


Alright, let's start off with the E-mail policy. First of all, some
people have such bad spelling and grammar that I can't read the damn


Another E-mail baddie is the fact people are trying to run my guide.
This rule has been set down recently, but follow it. I'm tired of
people asking for cheats and walkthroughs! I don't want that kind of
stuff in my guide! (especially cheats, I despise them)


This isn't a bad thing, but I need less questions and more information.
I'm on 5.00 and the guide's not complete! I have about half of the A
and B cars, but about 50 KB worth of questions! I still welcome
questions, send them in all you want, but try to include a little info,
too. If you can't, that's OK, you can still send me the question.


This is a good thing. Many people have brought to my attention that my
FAQ is excellent! This is good. But, could you rate my FAQ, by chance?
Some guy who hated my FAQ (and hates me, what a retard) Had a little,
uhh... Fun, with the rating of this FAQ. It's at 33.33333333333333333
333333 (you get the idea) percent. This makes people not want to read
my FAQ. To rate my FAQ, next to the title, look on the left. Click
"Rate". IF you liked it. click yes at the top of the page.


I have recently got a bombardment of questions about what happens at
the end of the game (do you get more money, ect.). How the hell am I
supposed to know? Besides, giving out those questions would be giving
out spoilers, which I try not to do.


Try not to send attachments. Just send the plain text letter.


I have gotten loads of contributions. The one problem is, I'm not sure
who the person wants to have the credit given to! In your E-mail, give
me the name you want to be credited with.


I only update this guide if there is something to update. I won't
update if there is only 1 byte of an update, not worth going through
the trouble.

goes underground. There's an archway lookin thing that is a circle on 
one of the entrances. the "ramp" is actually the arch, but if you ride 
up it at an angle, it's kinda like a ramp... Ride it on a sport bike.

                                                    24.) Rockstar Logos

This section is all about Rockstar Logos.

These are the maps for the cities.

San Diego:

Here are tips on finding them.

Atlanta: When you get out of the garage immediately turn to the right. 
You will see a glass. Crash through to find the logo.

Atlanta: Drive to the bottom of the map. Look for a building with a 
large globe. There is a logo that reads "Nitro Cola". A logo is located 
directly under it.

Atlanta: Drive to the graveyard in the south of the map (near the 
highway). There is a logo at the east part of the building.

Atlanta: Follow the highway until you reach a place with some 
construction work. Drive off the highway (to your right side if driving 
north), and look for a tank station. Follow the building around and you 
will see a ramp/road going up. Get some speed, fly over, and you will 
land on the roof of the building. The logo should be directly in front 
of you.

Atlanta: Follow the highway until you see a building with a yellow sign 
on top that reads "DJ Smalls". Across the road is a small parking area 
where you can see a sign on another building that reads "Spike". To the 
left of that building is a basketball court and a logo.

Atlanta: Follow the building where your garage is located. Drive through
the skeleton's mouth and you will find a logo.

San Diego: Find the aircraft carrier and locate the ramp to jump onto 
the flight deck. Here you'll find a logo.

San Diego: There is a logo behind the baseball stadium. Follow the 
highway to the back of the stadium. You will then see a small ramp. 
Drive up to find the logo.

San Diego: There is a logo at the top deck of the hangar ship.

San Diego: Drive to the beach at the top left of the map. Follow the 
beach until you see a small tunnel. There you'll find the logo.

San Diego: At the lower left of the map (near the hanger ship), follow 
the coastline. There is no road close by. Follow the large building, 
and you will find a small road that leads up to a roof. Turn left and 
you will see the logo.

San Diego: Almost at the lower right corner at the map, there is a 
large parking garage. When you are on the street, drive to the bottom 
left corner of the building. Drive up the ramp, turn left, and drive 
through the window to find another logo.

San Diego: To the far left of the map at the roller coaster, drive up 
the ramp that is located to the north. Ride to find the logo.
