Sandy Beaches Shortcut

If you want to get a good place on the sandy beaches level listen up. If you go through the waterfall that is one shortcut. But if you veer left and accelerate to a fast enough speed, you can launch yourself over the gaurdrail and into a lake. Sometimes you may pop up as close to the finish line as the last nitro but sometimes as far away as just around the corner.

NOTE: Make sure not to jump backwards because you may get sent back to the tunnel that is through the waterfall.

Cheat Codes

To enter the cheats go to the main menu screen. There are four options (Championship, Versus, Setup, Credits).

Imagine these options are numbered 0 to 3. Input the following sequence (by pressing the Z trigger) while positioning the menu cursor (via Control Stick) at the appropriate menu items. If you mess up you can enter a menu item and return to the main menu to reset.

Extra Money and Power-ups in Championship Mode
In championship mode, the amount of money you have and the number of upgrades your car has is saved into the game's memory but each time you start the game you get to chose your car. This means that there's a simple way to get more money and power ups on a championship game.

Every time you buy a new car, race one race with it then sell it and buy the worst car available. Now buy full upgrades for that car and start another race. As soon as this race begins press Start and chose EXIT to return to the main menu.

Start the championship game again and chose the best car available (it should be the one you have bought and sold). You now have full upgrades for this car and loads of spare cash -- probably enough to buy the next car.

This cheat works even better in multiplayer as only one player has to buy a car for all of the players to be able to select it.
