All courses now have time trial leaderboards. Throw down some rad times!

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".
27 Mar 3:26 2019
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.
18 Dec 16:59 2020
Could you let me know what ROM version you're using?
18 Dec 17:01 2020
That I'm not sure of. It's labelled Rad Racer 1 (USA)
18 Dec 17:05 2020
I sent a ticket for the first course achievement.
13 Jan 4:21 2021
What has happened to the course times? I want to call shenanigans.
13 Jan 4:30 2021
Yeah, things look strange since 2021... I'll investigate.
13 Jan 5:08 2021
Alright, I sorted out the bug and removed the errored scores.

Wow, thank you! One of my childhood favorite games!
