  • The game's difficulty level is determined by the type of car the player chooses to race with. The RED car (with bigger wheels) sets the difficulty level at 'easy', the BLUE car at 'normal', the ORANGE car at 'hard' and GRAY car at 'hardest'.
  • Press the START button while playing for a rear view. One thing to note is that Power Drift's gear change (from low to high, such as at the start of a race or after a crash) should be implemented much quicker than in other arcade racers.
  • Extra bonus stages :
Finishing in first place on all tracks of courses B and D will allow players will get to race a special track using the bike from Sega's classic 1985 racer, "Hang-On".
Finish first on all five tracks of any given group (A to E) and players will get to race a special track using the jet from "After Burner".
