Continuing the theme of vehicular flight, here's a much less puzzly game that nevertheless involves cars sailing through the air. Instructions are readily available but the challenge lies in how, exactly, you chose to time the different phases... It's not as straightforward as it may seem.

i notice there are no members of any ethnic minorities in the crowd on the final track

kind of reminiscent of that fake crowd thing that arsenal put up when rebuilding their stadium

A monster-truck game??? Awesome. I'm actually looking forward to getting home just so I can play it.

Monster-trucks are cool. My neighbours have (a small) one.

I still haven't got a throw above 400 BTW. How do you do it?

You've got to play with the accelerator while the brake is on. Give it gas, ease off slightly, give it gas, ease off again, etc., increasing the rpm's gradually, then when the fire starts to come out of the exhaust pipes, time it right and let it rip. You'll probably need the "Hemi bonus" (which you get for one throw following a throw over 300 feet) in order to crack 400 feet.

I can't get better than about 270.

Got a hemi power score once, but I don't see how.

Release the power break when it reaches 5 (thousand?) RPM. Press brake as late as you can- your nose can be significantly past the stop sign before you foul.

I still haven't been able to either. Annoying!
