I dug it, obviously. I spent loads of time searching for "junk" so I could have it appraised for car parts. I soon was getting all kinds of chassis, weapons, bodies, engines etc to make new cars. Making cars was fun. I also really liked as you gave raw materials to Joe's Mom, she would trick out the garage.
Yeah, that's pretty fun. But aren't there only 4 different types of cars? After you've built all those (which you can do in the first 4 hours of play), other than raising their stats and changing weapons I'm sort of at a loss of what to do. There are body, engine, and chassis types with different letters, but they don't seem to do all that much.
Right now I'm tricking out one of the big mammoths, which brings me lots of satisfaction. Building up the town is also kind of fun. Probably I'll also get a kick out fighting in the tourneys when I finally get to.
Actually I'm sort of stuck. Maybe you could help me out. I just heard all the bad rumors about my dad and then beat my rival in our first duel. I'm not sure what to do now to advance the story. According to an internet walkthrough, I should talk to the parts dealer (Takah) in my home town and he'll tell me to enter the tournament. However, he doesn't tell me that, and I can't enter the tourney. Do you remember anything that might help me? I've got the S rank license and everything.
