At the beginning you will receive a small amount of Nitro. The more better cars you get, the higher this amount increases. Level one means the first three car in the class list, Level two is the next 3 and finally Level three also means the next three.
Level one cars get half a can.
Level two cars get 15/16 full can (one good drift would fill it up.
Level three cars get one full can and 1/3 of another.
Special cars get all three cans filled.
If you want to play Ridge Racer with other PSP players around you but you only have one copy of Ridge Racer, here's how you can do it:
1.Load up Ridge Racer on PSP number 1.
2.Create a game on Ad Hoc mode and wait in the lobby.
3.Take out the disk and put the game in another PSP, load the game and join the already created game.
4.Then start the game.
5.The PSP screens should now go into a black screen, after 2 or 3 seconds when the PSP stops reading the disk, take it out and put it back in the other PSP.
6.Now it should start to load up the game and after his loading is done and the track is loaded, take out the disk and put it into the other PSP and just wait till it's done loading.
Now you both will be able to play the game in multiplayer mode. This trick can work for more than two players and as the music in the game is read off the disk, only the player with the game inside their PSP will get the music playing in the background.
When beginning a race, if you floor the accelerator just as the number one first appears, you will begin at a faster speed, in second gear if you are using automatic transmission. You will also get voice confirmation of your success. There are three levels of speed boost when beginning a race. In many races, this is a much needed edge for winning.
1. Use your nitrous when exiting a high speed drift. You will almost immediatly go to your top speed and therefore pass the other cars.(hopefully)
2. Make your car as wide as possible. Try to stay in the middle of the track and maybe swerve about a bit. This means that if a car behind you lets of some nitrous, you'll probably be in the way and so he'll hit you and you'll get a speed burst.
3. Saving nitrous. Try and save up all three nos bottles for the final lap. This will help you get/stay in first place.
4. Dont use nos at the start. All the type z cars start will one bottle of nos at the start, and if you use it right when you set off, they will too. But if you dont, they wont either and you can then go on and use it more effectivly.
Good luck with the max tours.
