Super Sprint. Nearly forgot this but it was great with it's stupidly spinny wheels. 3-player games would often go on for hours, with players swapping from time to time whether their credit ran out or not. Score board was topped with ridiculously high joint effort scores.
its a very long time since i've seen a supersprint or even played it,i have a memory of it been a high enough steering wheel ..:think: or else i was just younger than i think i was :awe:

i see your supersprint and raise you segas "hot rod" ....its everything supersprint was kinda :shifty: and more.
4 player ,top down view, both game and cab .. spinny wheels , games could go on for what seemed like hrs as well, car mods tyres ,turbos ,fuel needed to be picked up..... various terrains

god id love one for at home ,too big though

id love to know what the Japanese cab looked like i reckon similar :think:

Never played or seen hotrod. :(

Super Sprint was one of those oldies that was kept in the arcade for years. Another arcade had a Defender that they never let go. When you started super sprint, there was always someone nearby to sub in if you wanted to pop out for fags, play a fruit machine or take a ****. Spinning the wheel round and round doing donuts and funny little shortcut glitches, fag in mouth, was the coolest thing ever.

I felt like I'd made it when I got in the Super Sprint gang. 8-)

You cads with your fancy carcade gangs. The G-LOC gang I was the only member of in was where it was at 8-)

It was kind of like the G-unit but with less ice and more sidewinders.

Wonder Boy Gang repped the local swimming baths in my our trunks. Sometimes we'd hang with the Pang Gang for some Ping Pong. They said there was another Wonderboy crew from down their way. The Pang Block Wonderboys.
