This one hasn't been played in a decade here. Daniels version eliminates the steering wheel and lets you use a controller. Either way, best of luck and have a safe and happy 4th!

I believe Daniel's version also eliminates a glitch that was in the original.  In the original, there was a strange glitch where sometimes a car would pass you and it goes from 0 cars passed to 99 cars passed (thus making it easy to rack up a high score).  If memory serves me correctly, that doesn't happen in Daniel's version.

Wow, Skill 2 is a lot harder than Skill 1....I keep getting run over before I can get going again.

I just noticed something in Daniel's version:  no matter how many cars you pass, the cars passed never goes higher than 41.  I must've passed close to 80 or 90 cars before the first timer expired, and it wouldn't go past 41.

Turbo [Skill 2]:  9,178 pts.  Felt like I was doing very well, then you crash just once, and you're immediately killed and lose your final life when they run you over from behind (I barely even got to move on my next life).

Participation points

need to find out how to steer and how to go faster.

I never passed any cars, but the "cars passed" countr kept jumping around to numbers between 0 and 100.

Change gears with the joystick...up/down shifts gears.

Turbo (Skill 2) - 35,048

The two parts of the road I really hate are the icy one and this one (below - picture from instruction manual)...go too fast you run into cars ahead of you...too slow you get creamed from behind.

Wow! Excellent score...meanwhile, I can't seem to get over 15,000 since I put up my 35,048 score. The icy section of the road just kills me.

I hate the icy section and the green building section, too.  In those sections, try to focus on just hitting and letting go of the gas repeatedly instead of passing cars.  In those sections, just getting through the area is all that matters.  Once you get back to the good roads, then just fly at your heart's content.

Yeah, that's precisely what I do, but I still have troubles. I can usually get through them the first time with no problem, but when they come up again the cars seem to be going faster and it's a lot harder.
