                       Cheat Codes For Nascar Series

                                            NASCAR

Look in your nascar\tracks\taladega directory for a text file called TALADEGA.TXT.
Approximately 3 lines into the file, there is a line called SPDWY. Change the first 1 to a 0. Now you can do up to 255 through the straights in good weather.

                                           NASCAR RACING 2

Hex Cheat
---------
Go to the Nascar 2 directory ( you might have to go thru Sierra first.) and go to the folder TRACKS, then go to the folder called Taladega, after that go to the file that looks like a read me file but says Taladega, go in it and go to speedway, there will be a number 1 and two other numbers, change the number one to the number 0 and exit. While racing you can reach speeds of 230 mph.

Game Tips
---------
Cheats for NASCAR 2 are easy. Under the quick Race menu, just set the opponents strength down to the lowest it will go, which is 80% and then set the damage to no car damage, no yellow flags, no player breakdowns, etc. Have fun, as this applies to both the quick races AND the season races. Hope this solves the problem.

All Out Competition
-------------------
If you're getting sick of all of those lapped cars getting in your way during the race than this is the code for you. Choose a list from the driver info menu and do as follows:

Choose a driver at the bottom of the list and select INFO.

Select the SKILL menu from under the bio.

Alter the skill settings to match the following:

Endurance--477 [] 563
Car Drag---100 [] 147
Car Power--480 [] 565
Car Trac.--485 [] 569

Repeat this for all drivers. Now get ready for a race full of close and exciting competition.


                                                        NASCAR Heat
Hints:
------
In Heat's arcade-oriented Normal mode, there is no substitute for raw speed. On the ovals, don't even worry about slowing down for corners if there's a car ahead of you, because he'll make a convenient brake. In fact, finding yourself absolutely surrounded by cars in a turn is actually a good thing, as they'll essentially carry you through the turn. And finally, get down low on
the apron for passing, as your car won't bounce about over the track angle transition point nearly as much as it will in Expert mode.

If you've overshot a turn in Expert mode, don't feel you must keep the brake pedal crushed until you've slowed to a stop. Instead, apply the brakes as you would in a real car, then let up on them and slowly accelerate through the final stages of the corner. Not many games allow you to drive your way out of trouble, but this one does and it's just a great feeling.

Take care to avoid instances of quarter-panel contact. If you're tapped there in this game, there's a strong likelihood you'll spin or temporarily lose control.

Use the whole track. Unlike much of its competition, NASCAR Heat opens up several passing lanes on each of its oval circuits, allowing you to pass up high and in other spots with which you may not be accustomed.
Remember, your AI opponents will slow considerably when they have to deal with back markers. You, on the other hand, can smoothly sail on by.

Vortex Damage (Edit File):
--------------------------
Just go to your files folders and open options. txt and find the line that says vortex damage then change from no to yes and it should work.NOTE: May take longer to load tracks with vortex on.


                                                    NASCAR Legends
-----
Hints
-----
The bias-ply tires on these historical cars burn at a much faster rate than modern radials do, and you must adapt to the times or risk losing every race you enter. For starters, practice your pit-stop routine until you're able to enter and leave with absolute precision. Second, try adjusting the tire pressures during pre race practice sessions to determine which pressure gives the longest life. And finally, modify your driving style to eliminate tire squeal in the turns. Remember,
nothing slows you down like extra pit stops.
You won't be able to brake nearly as deep or hold your line through a turn as you would with a modern-day NASCAR car, no matter how hard you try. So take it easy out there.

Legends' Easy setup is preferable to the Ace setup on several of the game's shorter courses. On the Easy setting, you won't achieve the same sort of speeds as you would on the Ace setting,
but you can keep the car calmer and less jittery and hold your line through turns. And when you're in the thick of traffic in these antique cars, stability is absolutely essential.

Using the F10 overhead view from a standing start is a pretty good idea, but you won't want to do it once you're at speed and in the throes of all those complex Papyrus physics. The overhead view gives you a better idea of just how close your rivals are as you try to pick up a few positions before that first turn.

                                                    NASCAR Racing 3
Game Tips:
---------
Things have changed since NASCAR Racing 1999 Edition. Now, drafting past and out braking a competitor into a turn is no longer a guarantee that he won't stay with you or attempt
to regain his position in the midst of that turn. Be certain beforehand that your setup can handle all aspects of a given track's corners, and adjust your approach to ensure that a fast entry doesn't result in a slow exit.

As always, a fast frame rate is absolutely essential to properly monitor your car's position and attitude. If the frame rate isn't totally smooth, especially in the midst of traffic, go to the graphics options area and prepare to sacrifice pretty pictures for fast frame transitions.

NASCAR 3 is one of the very few racing titles in which a force-feedback wheel is actually a driving aid, not just a frivolous perk. If you have the bucks, take the plunge-just check the reviews of the wheel first and make sure you're getting a good one.

If you're tinkering with your car, make sure your new setup can survive the grind of the race distance you choose. There were many times when I'd settled on a given setup that flew for the first few dozen laps, only to die later as rubber burned off the right front tire. Don't make the
same mistake.

If you can handle the pitfalls of short, low-banked circuits, chances are you can handle higher-banked and longer tracks where the driving isn't quite so frightening. I personally feel that Memphis, a three-quarter-mile facility with 11-degree banking, is a great baptism by fire.

You would do well to adopt the "Five P" approach: Preparation, patience, perseverance, pacing, and last but surely not least, practice.

No Restricter Plates At Talladega:
----------------------------------
Note: This involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Enter the game directory and find the "tracks/taladega/taladega.txt" file. Use a text editor to edit this file. Locate the line that starts with "SPDWY" and change the first number from "1" to "0". Speeds over 230 miles an hour may now be obtained.
-------------
Ultimate Win:
-------------
To win easy just turn off damage then put the laps way down and put the cars way down. then you can go backwards and take out the rest of the field then just finish the race and have no worries.
Competitive races without having to change OPPS (Opponent strength)

Are you tired of having to change the opposition strength in the race
menu every time you race at a different track?

Here's what to do:
First, set the opps within the game to 100% say were racing at Atlanta. Go to the Atlanta Track
directory(/nascar3/tracks/Atlanta) Create copies of ATLANTA.TXT (or whatever the track name is) and RECORDS.TXT in the same directory. open the Atlanta.TXT Scroll down the arcane Capital letter words like TNAME, SPEEDW, LENGT. There are only a couple lines you can change without inviting Armaggedon. LAPS: how many laps are in a full length race

QUAL:how many qualifying laps there are. DONT CHANGE THE FIRST NUMBER.
THERE SHOULD BE TWO. the first number is only a place-holder.

BLAP:The average qualifying time for the computer cars, x 1000(so if the times are 23.456 secoonds, they would show up as 23456)Find your average qual time and enter this in to be able to qualify near the middle of the pack.

RELS:Same as opposition strength(if you had both RELS and OPPS at 97%, the cars would travel at 97% of 97%, or 94% at that track)

Faster Taladega speeds:
-----------------------
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Enter the game directory and find the "tracks/taladega/taladega.txt" file.
Use a text editor to edit this file. Locate the line that starts with "SPDWY" and change the first number from "1" to "0". Speeds over 230 miles an hour may now be obtained.

Hints:
------
Tip: There are no "tricks" to becoming a good NASCAR driver. As in the real world, it takes perseverance and hour upon hour of seat time. And a good, long examination of the wonderful
manual/strategy guide is something you must do.

Tip: If you can perfect your line on a given track so that it rarely, if ever, varies, you've gone a long way toward mastering the smoothness and consistency this game requires. Furthermore, once you've begun your garage work, you need to know that extra half second was the result of better tinkering, not better driving.

Tip: When making modifications to your car, always make just one or two at a time--that way you'll know what helped and what didn't. Also, save each newly altered car under a new
filename or you'll be screwed faster than Bill Clinton.

Tip: When it comes to controlling high-end racing Sims, joysticks blow. Go out and get yourself a good wheel-and-pedal unit. Right now.

Tip: Of all the data the game supplies, perhaps the most critical is the tire temperatures. What you want your setup to do is keep them even across the width of each tire after a bunch of hot laps. Doing so means more rubber is contacting the ground, and your tires, in all likelihood, will last longer and be more effective. Of course, a lot of factors go into even tire temps, so don't be disappointed if it takes you some time, perhaps several hours or more, to get it right.

Tip: On the track, a fast frame rate is absolutely fundamental for detecting minor fluctuations early enough to correct them. Turn off nonessential graphics options or use the game as a good
excuse to upgrade your computer or video card.

Tip: Starting a race with no pace lap means you'll get a good chance at picking up lots of early positions.


                                          NASCAR Racing 2000
Hints:
------
You can't go banging and crashing with impunity, but a well-placed thump on a competitor's door will generally not send you into a spin and is encouraged as a way of forcefully pushing your way through turns.

If you have enough free disk space, go with a full install to eliminate CD access delays when racing.

For rookie and veteran drivers alike, the most important pre race screen is the one marked "AI Strength." Here you can fully tailor the realism and tune the level of assistance you require. Sliding controls govern several key areas, including drafting effect, horsepower, car balance, opponent strength, and speed-sensitive steering. In essence, you can make the game as easy or difficult,
authentic or "action oriented" as you want. You cannot effectively judge the capabilities of NASCAR 2000 without fully exploring these options.

EA Sports and Stormfront have really upgraded the game manual for the latest NASCAR. Use it wisely and pay particular attention to the "In the Garage" section it really does help you get faster.
 


                                                  NASCAR Revolution
Game Tips
--------
Tip 1
-----
If you think you're going to brush up against another car, simply pull your foot off the accelerator. Without the pedal depressed, your car won't fall into a spin as easily.

Tip 2
-----
EA Sports' NASCAR cars have far less braking ability than the Papyrus variety. Prepare even earlier for corners, and do what you can in the garage to enhance your stopping
ability.

Tip 3
-----
Don't ever, ever place a wheel on the grass. The quite possibly airborne consequences can be inordinately horrific.
