Transmission
   You have to shift up and down yourself if you choose a 6Speed.  This 
   requires you to pay attention to your speedometer and the track.  Once the 
   RPMs hit the red zone in the meter, you should shift up.  If you are slowing 
   down, you should also shift down when the meter hits the bottom.  You also 
   need to shift up before you start racing.  Below I will list at what speeds 
   you should generally shift up.
                                                                               
     1st Gear - 0MPH
     2nd Gear - 40MPH
     3rd Gear - 96MPH
     4th Gear - 136MPH
     5th Gear - 164MPH
     6th Gear - 200MPH
                                                                               
Turning
   Turning is fairly difficult in this game and requires a bit of practice.  
   For the most efficient turning, you should practice racing "the line."  What
   this is, is the fastest line around a turn. This requires you to start on
   the outside of a turn, for example start on the left hand side for a right
   turn.  While in the middle of the turn, you should be on the inside.  While
   exiting the turn, you should be on the outside again.  That line will allow
   you to take the turn at a faster speed which will also give you a greater
   corner exit speed.
                                                                               
Passing
   Be careful for those other cars on the tracks.  Don't do something stupid 
   such as hit them when they are easily avoidable.  If you hit them, you will
   slow down and feel shame for your mistake as everybody else speeds off.  I 
   suggest passing them on straightaways where you have time and don't have to
   worry about turning while passing other cars.
                                                                               
Learning the Tracks
   This isn't too difficult considering the fact that the map of the track is
   always on the screen.  They also give you a warning when you are approaching
   a turn.  However, learning the track is one key strategy to winning any 
   race.  This will help you prepare for each turn and learn the key passing
   points for each track.  Also pay attention to each of Michael Andretti's 
   tips before each track.

There isn't much to tuning in this game, but I will list all of it anyways.
                                                                               
Gears - Automatic will automatically shift for you. A 6Speed will make you 
         shift yourself. Check out the strategies section for more information
         about shifting.
                                                                               
Tires - There are three different types of tires. Hard doesn't give you as good
         traction but they will last longest. Soft will give you better 
         traction but won't last as long. Wet will give you better traction in
         rain.
                                                                               
Wings - You get a choice between three wings. The smallest angle (ten degrees)
         will make your car lighter and faster, however you won't be able to
         turn as well. Twenty degrees will be a split between speed and turning
         and thirty degrees will give you more turning ability than speed.
