MIDGET CAR MODE (Chibi-Mode)
Shoot all the Galaxians down using not more than 44 shots, or with the laser) to put the game into "Midget mode". When using the laser wait for each wave of ten to fly onto the screen and hit them with one shot.
LASERS IN GALAGA `88
Before Galaga starts up, hold Down, Select, R1 and L1 keys and use the triangle to fire a laser at the Galagans.
At the start of a race, turn around right away and run into the wall behind the starting area at full speed.
8 EXTRA CARS
Shoot down all of the Galaxians to get the eight extra cars just like in the original Ridge Racer. The "Secret Mode" that is displayed when not shooting any enemies appears to be a joke.
DRIFT CONTEST MODE
Select any one of the time-trial courses, hit start, then hold down the keys you have set up as gas and brakes. This puts the game temporarily in 'spinning mode'. Select corners around the track will trigger a little race car that drives across your screen leaving the words 'Spinning Point' in it's dust. Keep cruising and the first corner where you will have to power slide the words SLIDING POINT will come accross the screen. Slide it and you will get a score on how well it thinks you slid(with a picture of the car from rally x going across). Three factors will depend upon your score: 1. car speed 2. slide duration 3. where your end up.
CHANGE OUTSIDE CAR VIEW ZOOM
Start a race, pause, then hold L2 and use the triangle to zoom out or hold R2 and use the triangle to zoom back in. Hold down R1, L1, and the triangle to return to the default.
REAR VIEW MIRROR REMOVED
Pause game, then while in the in-car view, hold the R1, R2, L1, and L2 buttons and use the triangle to toggle the mirror on and off.
