    I witnessed this game at Funspot. We also verified that in MAME "150 seconds" play time equals 100 "time units" in the game. Each game time unit is more than 1 actual second. You can see in the video that track 1 is selected, the oil slicks are on and extended play is active.

    Holy Cow, John !!! You're incredible at this game.

    I remember playing it in the arcade and loving it. Loved the full-color version as well.

    I've never seen anyone play this game at your skill level.

    Amazing performance!

    ACCEPTED.

    if only you had one less crash, you would have smashed the record!

    Great performance John!

    Great score John. I'm voting yes.

    Here's a link to a discussion where I congratulate the first person to get 524 on this game and question the former top two scores as being done on incorrect settings. Since you just played this game at Funspot I'd be interested to hear if you think that it's more likely that this game was on the incorrect settings when these score were done back in 2006 or do you think they just decided to walk away and not play the bonus time?

    In that thread I wished for a video of his game. Thanks for sharing yours. It makes it real easy to verify that you played on the correct settings.

    I see the scores in question were not set in 2006 but it won't let me edit. First score was done in 2001 and the other in 2007.

    We talked to Brian Kuh and he said on his score he went long enough to get the record and then quit the game. It was during one of his multiple records in one day attempts so he didn't want to waste time.

    I had a game where I didn't crash in the first 100 time units, but then sadly I crashed 3 or more times in the bonus time and came up a few points short. We've been playing doubles and I got a 540, without that one extra car to get in your way makes the game so much easier. We will get the doubles scores up soon.
