Here are all of the F-Zero GP Legend story mode challenges with tips on how to beat each story and what you unlock when you do.
*This is mostly a translation of the Japanese Version, but there are some tips included as well*
In Story Mode, you'll be racing for space credits (indicated by a $), which seem to be the interplanetary unit of currency. At one point in the anime, some kind of lunch platter special is said to cost 480 space credits, so perhaps the creators set a space credit equal to one yen, which these days is between eight-tenths and nine-tenths of a US cent. This means that the 100 million space credits you get for winning a typical story race are worth about US$800,000. (And here we were thinking Alex Rodriguez was overpaid!).
You can unlock some ships by clearing story modes or "maxing out" the cash on each character (you max out by getting $2,550,000,000 by beating the objectives either really well, or multiple times)
