  • Steering Wheel: Use the joystick to steer your car just as you would with any real car; in MAME, the equivalent for it is the left and right arrow keys.
  • Gas Pedal: Step on the gas pedal to accelerate your car; in MAME, the equivalent is the left Ctrl key, but you may wish to change it to the up arrow.
  • Break Pedal: Step on the break pedal to decelerate your car; in MAME, the equivalent is the left Alt but you may wish to change to the down arrow.
  • Clutch Pedal: Step on this pedal to let the clutch in (or out); in MAME, the equivalent is the space bar, but you may wish to change it to the left Ctrl.
  • View Change Button: Use this button to change the view from the default first-person one to a third-person one (with the camera behind your car).
  • Gear Shifter: Use the gear shifter to change the gear your car is driving in; in MAME, the equivalent is the "Stick Shift" option in the "Dip Switches".

CPU Cars[edit]

In addition to the eight player cars, there are also three CPU-controlled cars affiliated with Team Lucky & Wild (1992, light blue/dark blue), Team Cyber Cycles (1995, pink), and Team Dig Dug (1982, yellow); they behave in the same way a player car does when that player is not present, and is therefore also under the control of that CPU. Team Dig Dug's car also happens to be a different shade of yellow than both Team Steel Gunner's and Cyber Sled's.
