F-Zero MV Ships
There are ten machines in F-Zero MV. Each has their settings listed below including: Maximum Speed (non-boost), Maximum Speed (while boosting), Body strength, Turn Performance, Turn Balance, Length of boost, Bost Maintenance, when to hit the accellerator at the start, and jumping ability.
422 - Max Speed 579 - Max Boost 69 - Body B / C - Turn Perf/Bal 6 sec / Avg - Boost 3rd beep - Start Average - Jump
An average machine with average speed, turning, strength and boost.
440 - Max Speed 565 - Max Boost 82 - Body C / B - Turn Perf/Bal 6.5 sec / Avg - Boost 2nd beep - Start Good - Jump
Slightly peppy, strong body, slower accelaration.
418 - Max Speed 560 - Max Boost 63 - Body C / A - Turn Perf/Bal 9.5 sec / Poor - Boost 3rd beep - Start Poor - Jump
One of the best machines for beginners because of good cornering and jumping as well as amazing accelleration and long (although slow) boosting. However, one of the worst machine in the game for experts because of slow speed, weak body, and poor (but long) boost.
428 - Max Speed 585 - Max Boost 50 - Body A / D - Turn Perf/Bal 5.3 sec / Poor - Boost 3rd beep - Start Good - Jump
This machine was originally called the "Crazy Horse," but was renamed to the "Wind Walker" in the US version. A quirky but good car. Banana peel balancing, high acceleration and boost, average speed.
436 - Max Speed 591 - Max Boost 75 - Body C / A - Turn Perf/Bal 3 sec / Above Avg - Boost 3rd beep - Start Average - Jump
This machine was originally called the "Dirty Joker," but was renamed to the "Sly Joker" in the US version. Above average speed, good performance overall, but a really short boost takes the fun out of it.
460 - Max Speed 525 - Max Boost 85 - Body C / C - Turn Perf/Bal 12.0 sec / Poor - Boost 2nd beep - Start Great - Jump
Above average machine with an extremely long but slow boost. The Stingray also has the highest jump and a drifting balance, making this one of the funner machine.
464 - Max Speed 589 - Max Boost 90 - Body D / B - Turn Perf/Bal 3.7 sec / Average - Boost 1st beep - Start Poor - Jump
Heavy machine with good speed, ok turning, and low boost. Very similar to the Jet Vermillion, but not as good. Once you've unlocked the Jet Vermillion, this machine becomes redundant.
448 - Max Speed 573 - Max Boost 66 - Body C / B - Turn Perf/Bal 7.2 sec / Average - Boost 3rd beep - Start Good - Jump
One of the better machines all around. Good acceleration, turning, and boost, its only real weakness is its body strength.
412 - Max Speed 593 - Max Boost 56 - Body D / B - Turn Perf/Bal 9.0 sec / High - Boost 3rd beep - Start Good - Jump
One of the best machines in the game, largely because of its high boost maintenance and long boost. Don't let the Max Normal Speed fool you, this puppy can maintain its boost throughout a track giving you very high speeds. The low body strength can be a hinderance in Grand Prix mode.
456 - Max Speed 602 - Max Boost 100 - Body E / B - Turn Perf/Bal 4.2 sec / Highest - Boost 1st beep - Start Terrible - Jump
The mac daddy. Hard to get but worth it. High speed, highest boost, highest boost maintenance. Difficult machine to master, but will shave loads off your times. High body strength and balance gives this machine the ability to turn mines into boosts.
You get a machine for reaching each of these goals.
Beat Pawn, Knight, and Bishop on Standard difficulty
Beat Pawn, Knight, and Bishop on Expert difficulty
Beat Queen on Expert difficulty
Beat any class on Master difficulty
Beat all four classes on Master difficulty
You always get the machines in the following order:
Unlocking the Jet Vermillion
In order to unlock the Jet Vermillion, you have to do one of four things:

Finish the Championship Circuit 255 times.
Use Action Replay for the gameboy (see below).

What Action Replay Codes are Available?
These two codes can be used to unlock the Jet Vermillion ship (even though "All Vehicles" is there, it does *not* work). These codes are built into newer ARs - just remember to throw the front switch to left to save the codes to the card. The card is then unlocked and you no longer need AR. Actual cheat codes are available at codejunkies.com - but we don't recommend using them and they are banned from our ladder.
