Some of you may be wondering, "Just what the heck are the Slider and Jumper?"
Well, that's what this section of the FAQ is for!

"Slider"
This is the setting where you use Slide Turns basically the whole time.
The Slider is where you set the acceleration all the way to be beginning of
the graph and then use the Slide Turn. The Slide Turn is where, if you are
turning left, you would push left on the stick and push the R button. And if
you are turning right, then you would push the L button. This setting is better
for more experienced players.

"Jumper"
The Jumper is the setting that Beginner and intermediate players should use,
until they get more comfortable with the Slider. This is basically where you
just concentrate on getting a top speed and trying not to lose too much around
the corners. It is much easier to get used to then the Slider, and should be
used by all but the people who want to get the very best of times.

3. What this FAQ is for
//\
// \
//
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Basically, this is a FAQ to help you with your fast times, it is all the
suggested Engine Settings and the suggested Pod to get the maximum time out of
your Machine. All of the settings for both the "Slider" and the "Jumper" have
been used to beat the staff ghosts with.

I know that I would find this very helpful for getting better times and I
hope that you do as well.

All of the Engine Settings and Suggested Pods are from Jimmy Thai who is the
Top F-Zero X player in the world, so I think you would agree that he knows
what he is talking about.

I hope that this FAQ will be very helpful to whoever reads it, and that it will
help everyone.

===============================================================================

Note: If you want to go for the fastest time possible, Blood Hawk is the #1
choice. For beginners and intermediate players you might want to go with the
"Jumper" technique till you get more used to using the "Slider". For advanced
players, the "Slider" is the last and only choice.

Also, all of the Staff Ghost times are NTSC. For PAL times check out
