There's an auction right now for a Sprint 2:

eBay Auction -- Item Number: 3902533151811?ff3=2&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&item=390253315181&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]

 

And what a sexy cabinet! I love the color scheme, the artwork and the metallic control panel. A perfect design IMHO

 

I love the game and cabinet too. Looks like the auction game doesn't work. Check out the screen in the two pics!

Exactly and that's the question I sent to the seller in that the pics he has posted that the playfield isn't being displayed. His response was that it was working. I think it's located in CT anyway which I won't drive that for a cabinet...

This game looks like Sprintmaster for the 2600.

 

And the knuckleheadz decided to use a joystick instead of the driving controller for Sprintmaster...

 

Over 500 games released for the 2600 and only 1 game uses the driving controller.

I wonder why Atari gave up on the driving controller. :?:

 

Cuz they're terards...

Speaking of Atari controllers, they should of used the CX-40 for the 5200 and 7800.

Just add another button on it for the games that need 2 buttons.

You should try the track I'm using, the 7th.

I think it a lot easier ... only one oil spill.

 

I never go faster than 3rd gear.

I always get above 200 points.

Try to get in second position at the first turn, this way you will be able to make several laps before you have to lap the slowest car.

LOL - that was my logic...I started playing the one that had only one oil spill...I'll stay in 2nd gear until I enter the turn in the upper right of the screen and stay in 3rd until I enter the first turn off of the straightaway...

 

I don't like how the other cars are invincible
