The game hardware is a pre-cpu discreet logic design, and used the Durastress process. The cabinet was patented Oct. 20, 1975: (U.S. Patent # D243,626, ).


This is a game where you dodge cars on both sides of a narrow two lane road. For every car you pass you gain one point. If you hit a car on the road you lose all your momentum and do not gain the point. The player will sit in a cockpit and steer with a steering wheel. The game ends when time runs out.
