Interesting game for his time but is not that.
I understand that it's hard to imagine for who has not played the game, but I repeat:
"During the competition you have NO CONTROL over the vehicle!"
That's why seems so particular, it was like programing a race and than just sit and watch. It's something like what happens in "Robot Wars Extreme" but without external control.
I can say a lot of details about the game but I think does not help;
what is special about is :
you must attach some components to a vehicle so that you had to win competition (WITHOUT control during the competition).
Example of what I remember:
the speed race was pretty simple: you need only about two radars, two triggers, a steering wheel and an engine; you place a radar to the left front, one to the right, if the radar signal left border, pulled steering wheel to the right and vice versa, etc ...
