Timer difficulty is set to '1', which is easiest. Traffic difficulty may be set to ANY VALUE from '1' (easiest) to '8' (hardest) at the discretion of the player. Twin Galaxies does not distinguish between difficulties...it is up to the player to choose the one that best meets their play-style. Starting time is set to the highest possible value in terms of seconds. Players are NOT allowed to decrease the braking time or increase the acceleration time. ILLEGAL TACTICS include: useage of the 'Crazy Warp' at three (3) key points in the game, useage of the 'Wall Trick' in which a player continually coasts in place on an angle against a wall, racking up illegally obtained points in the process, and useage of the 'Crazy Back-drift' technique while within a drop-off area beyond the time limit of the drop-off. Useage of any of these three tactics will invalidate the entire score performance at the discretion of the Twin Galaxies referee.
