Finish the fourth year (all six seasons, including Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, Expert and Professional), and you will receive the Beachball Car. It's basically one big beach ball with four smaller ones rolling on the ground. Enjoy that beach shortcut...
Car Color Changes
You can easily change the color of your car without having to go into the Paint Shop mode. On the car selection screen, push the D-Pad while holding one or all three of the C button(s). C-Left corresponds to red color intensity, C-Up changes the green and C-Right changes the blue value. Up on the D-pad increases the intensity of the color(s). Down on the D-pad decrease the intensity of the color(s)
Finish the fifth year (all six seasons, including Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, Expert and Professional), and a new "easter egg" will allow you to change your car textures to "mirror." Simply click the lower C-Button when on the car selection screen, and you can race as a chromed car. Looks best in replays.
Secret Date and Time
Want to see when the programmers at Boss Game Studios finished work on Top Gear Rally? Start the game and hold down all four C-Buttons, and the date and time will appear on the title screen.
Itís a little awkward writing a strategy guide for a racing game because everybody has their own driving style. There are some "features", however, in Top Gear Rally that can be exploited to increase performance and help complete the game and access all the cars. Hereís the winning formula:
This is a rally game. That means much sliding around and crashing into things when you first start playing. However, power sliding is easily mastered with little practice. Lift off the accelerator on the approach to a corner, just before you start turning. Start turning and slide the car around to point at the apex of the corner and then press accelerate. The car will exit the corner at max speed. The faster the car, the more you have to utilize the "throttle off, turn-and-point, throttle on" technique -- corners that can be taken flat out in the earlier cars become super slide-fests when youíre driving a speedier mobile. Donít go flying over jumps at top speed (unless itís one of the few "big air" jumps that are designed for max speed). As you crest a hill, let off the accelerator -- the carís nose will drop over the brow, keeping the wheels in contact with the road, allowing for earlier acceleration. If you fly over a jumps at top speed, the car is out of control for longer because itís bouncing, and itís more difficult to set yourself up correctly for the next corner.
Beach Break: Soon after the second tunnel, the guard rail on the right ends, enabling racers to cut across the beach. Stay in the middle and head toward the opening on the other side. This is an excellent short cut, and even though you slow in the sand, you beat out opponents handily.
Over the Fields and through the...: Just after the beach break shortcut, watch for an opening on the left side. Once found, youíll drive across a wide grassy pasture. Keep near the left fence to reach the opening on the other side.
Field of Green: After an S-shaped curve, take a short cut across the fields. The embankments are on each side lower down, which resemble ramps. Stay close the jungle, but donít try to go through the jungle (as far as we know there isnít any short-cut through it). There is a similar, shorter-cut right after it but a giant rock makes this second route trickier at high speeds. Mud, Fire, and Ice When you hit the mud slogs in any season except snow, stay on the roads. When youíre in Snow, the mud freezes to ice and can be fruitful in knocking off significant seconds.
Fork: Near the trackís end, the road forks in twain. Go left, or rather, stay on the main road -- itís safer and faster than taking the right road, which is narrower, riskier and not any faster.
In the Championship Mode, gamers are rewarded with new seasons and variations of tracks. There are five courses, four seasons, day/night, and mirror tracks. The Tracks are Coastline, Desert, Jungle, Mountain, and Stripmine. Jungle, Mountain, and Stripmine open up after you beat certain courses. The Mirror courses open up after achieving the proper point total in Championship, and beating all of the seasons.
Stripmine To get to the Strip Mine, achieve first place on all of the races in the last season (Season 6). You can also get a mirror version of the Stripmine, too!
A version of the credits is accessible any time in the options menu. But there are different credits, with the Strip Mine shown in the background, that are a little more interesting: Go to Options, click on the Credits icon, then press left (on the D-pad), down C, right (on the D-pad), down (on the D-pad), and Z.
Finish the third year (all six seasons, including Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, Expert and Professional), and you will receive the Cupra Car. Essentially, this is an ice cube floating on top of four wheels. It doesn't have any special odomoter or features, but it handles nicely and drives as fast as only an ice cube could.
If you beat the Expert Mode on the second season you will get the helmet car and the mirror of the Strip Mine.
New cars are awarded each time you beat a season. There are as many as eight bonus cars.
You start of with:
After beating the first season, you are rewarded with the ultimate in off-road racers...The Milk Truck.
God Bless you Boss Games Studios. Dairy Lovers salute you the world over.
