All courses now have time trial leaderboards. Throw down some rad times!
Keltron3030 27 Mar 2019 03:25
It should be mentioned that the game offers a level select code which is acceptable to use for any of the achievements; however, it will not allow you to unlock "A Truly Rad Racer".
Keltron3030 27 Mar 2019 03:26
Level select feature: Once you select your vehicle, press the B button X-1 times (X = Track Number). Then, hold Up and Right and press Start.

I got an inaccurate time on Sunset Coast. There's no way I beat it in 2:35.
Keltron3030 18 Dec 2020 16:59
Could you let me know what ROM version you're using?
Benwah 18 Dec 2020 17:01
That I'm not sure of. It's labelled Rad Racer 1 (USA)
Benwah 18 Dec 2020 17:05
I sent a ticket for the first course achievement.
InsidiouSin 13 Jan 2021 04:21
What has happened to the course times? I want to call shenanigans.
Keltron3030 13 Jan 2021 04:30
Yeah, things look strange since 2021... I'll investigate.
Keltron3030 13 Jan 2021 05:08
Alright, I sorted out the bug and removed the errored scores.
InsidiouSin 13 Jan 2021 05:21
Wow, thank you! One of my childhood favorite games!

I need help with the High Speed Collisiion achievement. How do you get this? Even running at 255 MPH and hitting the back of the slow cars (the ones that come at you faster) I can't crash. Any tips on it? Any stages I should be more aware of the possibility?
SpaceKatdet 1 Jun 2022 16:14
It has to be really slow cars, especially start showing up in stage 5 where you'll see them and then you pass them in all of about a second. They're going so much slower that if you slam into the back of them, it acts as hitting something and flipping your car.

Hope this helps?
