so that's the maximum possible score! 

too bad, that's a fun game I'd never really gotten into.

glenncase, I think I heard you mention you are competing in the 2600 contest?  I wanted to mention just in case you didn't notice -- unlike the rest of the contests the 2600 one is for trophy-cracking only.   Meaning, new trophies won't count in the contest, only ones which you get for beating a current top score.  in the other contests, new trophies are counted.

my apologies if you already knew... rock on!

I have always liked thisgame. I suck at it. You maxed it out. I have to wonder if there is something that can be done to get this game to go futher in some aspect to bring compotission to this score?

@S.BAZ: I think there is at least one mode where a second player CAN control the other car. Plus there are definitely two player modes where players take turns.

me too!   I always just assumed from the look of it that the game had a 2p mode, it just seems made for 2-p head on action!

From the manual:

Game 1 - One player
Game 2 - Two players/computer controls one car/ (See A. -GAME PLAY)
Game 3 - Two players alternately control a point-scoring car and a crash car. (See B. - GAME PLAY)

Yeah Ilooked it up and that is correct. It also appears this game acording to the manual needs A/A B/B A/B B/A settings as it suports it.
