This page needs images of controls for the Arcade from the controller buttons category to make learning the controls easier. If a set of controller button images is available for this system, please . If a set of controller images isn't available, it might need to be brought up on the forums.
Controls in all versions of the game have the basic form of: Left, Right, Accelerate (forward), Brake (backward) and Boost. Pick up the Boost targets as you go through the game to enable the boost. Use the boost version of super start to get a 4 second boost right at the beginning of the race.
