Sebulba's Pod Racer
To get Sebulba's Pod to race with, all you have to do is win the last race, and he will be able to be selected! Also, it mentions it in the manual, but double tap R to flash his vents. Enjoy!
Dis the competition with Racer's taunt feature. At Tournament mode's Main Menu, hold the Z Button while pressing A to start a race. You'll see a brief sequence in which your racer and a rival trash-talk each other in a hanger.

To race as Cy Yungan go into an empty file(If there is none, go to the file you wish to erase and press C-Up.). When it asks you to put in your initials, hold down the Z button and us the L key instaed of the A button to type in RRCYYUN (you know your doing it right when you see the letters appear in the bottom left hand corner of the screen.). When finished, while still holding Z, use L to select end. OK will appear at the bottom left hand side of the screen. Now, "Bullsye" Navior will become Cy Yungan. There is no other way to get Cy Yungan in the game. Also, "Bullsye" Navior has to be unlocked for this cheat to work.

Autopilot with out using ordinary codes
You can do this with any podracer on any course with a zero-gravity tunnel. As you reach the end of the tunnel pull back on the control stick until you exit the tunnel, keep holding the control stick back until you see that you are following the course.
Fly Above Other Players
I really hope other people get this code. This code will enable you to fly higher than usual. (Note: you must be coming out of a tunnle that centers you in the middle of it) When you come out of 1 of these many tunnles you must hit BREAK and pull back on the JOYSTICK just as you exit the tunnle. Presto you should be hovering.
If, for some reason, you like to hear Anakin (or whomever you happen to be playing as) scream as your Podracer explodes, Hit self-destruct by tapping Right on the Control Pad.
For monochrome sttings without textures, press and hold Left on the Control Pad and the Z button at the same time. By pressing and holding the Control Pad in the north-west position along with the Z Button, you can Fast-Forward though Monochrome Mode.
To make your Podracer as clear as a wookiee is hairy, press Left on the Control Pad. As long as you hold Left, your vehicle will cruise in its invisible stealth mode.
To quickly backtrack through a racetrack, press Down on the Control Pad. The timer will still move forward, but your Podracer will shift into reverse to drive against the flow of traffic.
Want to yell insults at other players and you can't? Don't be sad. Double tap R in the middle of the race to shout insults. The only ones heard in English are Anikin's. They are lame, but fun.
Fly around the track
You must be on a level with anti-gravity tunnels to do this! When you are about to exit an anti-grav tunnel, hold down on the control stick, making your pod go up. As long as you hold down, your pod will keep flying above its hovering altitude without lowering. After awhile, though, you may want to let go so that you do not crash. This will work on every tunnel to my knowledge.
Earn Easy Money
Put in the invincibility cheat. Go to the junk yard and buy parts that are the same or better than the parts you have (ignore what the bar tells you). The dealer will give you a wad of cash, or make better parts cheap. These parts are beaten up, so they sell for less. Place in an unfinished race, and go back to look at your parts. If you had the invincibility on, they will be like brand new! If you bought a part that was worse than the original, you can now buy back the original, but for less than you sold it to the dealer for!
6 Pit Droids
Go to an empty game slot in tournament mode. Holding Z and entering the letters with L, type in RRPITDROID. Then select End and put in initials as usual at Watto's shop, press Up, Down, Left, Right, Right, and Up. Now you will be able to have 6 pit droids!
