 =>3-D Mode: Press SELECT while playing to switch to 3-D mode. However, if you
don't have a pair of standard blue/red 3-D glasses, this won't do much.
=>Stage Select: Start the game and select a car. Now, on the demo screen
press B one time less than the course you want (so, for course 5, press
Bx4), or press Bx60 if you want to see the ending of the game. Now, hold
U+R and press START.
=>Continue Code: After losing a race, hold A and press START to try again.
=>Radio: Press D while playing to change your radio station, and thus the
background music.
