THESE MAPS will prove useful to you for all of the game's collection parts. Use them to find every paint job, every wheel set, and every monster truck part. It would be best for you to avoid collectibles until you are done with the story missions, that way you can use the map to systematically work your way through every collectible later on.

Cars: Mater-National, is yet another animated movie to quickly made game... game. And, it isn't one of the few good ones. Everything feels extremely repetitive, but that's probably because it is. There are some mini-games that you can do, but they all get old after the second level. As for races, I'm not sure if the AI is competitive when you aren't lapping them for the second time, (cheats are awesome) but I didn't give it a chance. I wanted my 1k and I wanted out of whatever sort of world has talking cars in it. Just like you do. So without further adieu...

Step 1: Starting Out
In the first level, Radiator Springs, start off by doing every race (white star) possible. When there are no more races, do all seven levels of Ramone's Rhythmic Rumble (DDR on the easiest difficulty, minus Japanese pop music.) Do parts of other challenges that are available at the time until you can't do them anymore (they will be unlocked later) then do some more races. Starting to see the pattern here?

Step 2: Ornament Valley
Eventually you will unlock Ornament Valley, so head there and repeat Radiator Spring's concept. You will have to do parts of mini-games, and some races. You will never finish a series of mini-games, but you will finish the Rust Bust series of races for an achievement.

Step 3: Tailfin Pass
Once the Ornament Valley races are finished up, you can enter Tailfin Pass. Head there, and complete all of the races/mini-games as usual. You should unlock Win all Road Races once you finish the 3 races here. Now go finish off the Stadium Races to be done with every story-related race.

Step 4: Collectibles Galore
You have to do it at one point or another. It just wouldn't be a kids game if it didn't have an unnecessarily large amount of collectibles with achievements attached to them, right? Use the maps linked in the introduction for an easier time with all of the collecting.

Step 5: Mini-Games Galore
Time to do the mini-games. I completed them in this order:
-Built Monster McQueen (use collection map)
-Ghost Mater
-Built Monster Mater (requires the metal detector)
-Tractor Tipping
-Filmore's Fuel Frenzy
-Monster Truck Waypoint Races
-Race and Chase
-Mike and Sully Checkpoint Race

I made sure I took the path of least resistance, so I have to assume that this is it. You can finish the mini-games in any order you want though.

If you haven't unlocked every achievement by the time you unlock Beat the Game! it means that you missed a collectible somewhere. Check what achievements you don't have, then use the collectible map to finish up the game.
