You can enter the garage at the beginning of a game or at any interval in between races.
This is where you make essential repairs to your cars body, engine and tyres.
You can also purchase extra fuel here. To improve your on track performance and
increase your chances of winning, you can also buy a range of 'optional extras'
from the garage. These include:
Essential for decreasing your turning circle and allowing you faster corner taking.
Use this to increase your acceleration rate. This option is particularly useful when running into patches of mud which slow your car down.
High speed Kit
Increase your maximum speed-Invaluable on the straights.
Use this for faster braking.
You can only buy one of these per race. Fire it (push up on joystick)when an opponent is directly in front of you to ensure a total write-Off plus a hazardous obstruction for all other cars behind. (And you on your next lap)
Blow any tail-Ender out of the race-But like the front missile, you can only buy one per race. Pull back on joystick when enemy is directly behind you).
You will need this when your car is thrown into an uncontrollable skid caused by either oil or water. Spin assist will always point your car in the right direction.
Use this to send any other car into an uncontrollable spin simply by ramming it.
Place the pointer on the special feature or boxes marked tyres, fuel, engine, or
body that you want to buy. As the till rings up the sale the money is decreased
accordingly. You can only use the extras that you buy in the following race.
Anything not used will be cancelled out and you will have to buy it again for
any future race. To leave the garage simply place the pointer on the exit door
and press fire to begin the first stage, you select a track numbered from one to nine.
Place the pointer on the track number that you want to race in and press fire.
You will start the competition in a taraco neoroder turbo because you will not
be able to afford a smarter set of wheels until you win some prize money.
You can race the tracks in any order you want. You must however race all nine
tracks before you can advance to the next level.
At this point a password will
appear automatically on the screen. Press fire to proceed to the next level.
(Remember to take note of passwords for future use). You will have to come in
the first three competitors during any race to qualify for the next round.
Fourth or worse means that you've blown it.
Failure of either fuel, tyres. Bodywork or engine whilst racing will also result
Press (and hold down) the fire-Button to accelerate forward. Then move the joystick left or right to steer.
When screeching into a bend, try taking your finger off the fire-Button but still steering. This has the effect of a hand-Brake turn.
If you have to drive through an oil slick on one of the straights, make sure your car is going in a straight line to ensure a controllable slide.
Always use the missiles on a straight. If you hit and immobilise a car, it will cause a massive pile-up on the next lap.
