+ - Best way to crack .rar archives?

Submitted by Snowraver1

The first "layer" of raring is not password protected, but the .rar file that gets extracted from the first archive is password protected. What I'm left with is a password protected .rar file and anger. My question to everyone here is: What is the best way to crack a password protected .rar file? I have seen some crappy shareware brute force type programs, but I was thinking something more like RainbowCrack. Is there a way to extract the password hash value from the .rar archive and use RainbowCrack to crack it?"
