Hey guys,

I have been picking up Outrun 2 lately and was wondering about something. I have the feeling, that if you hit a car while drifting in a certain angle with your rear end, you get "teleported" forward. Is this truly saving some time or is it just looking janky?

I have not yet been consistent enough to find out myself. (chipping away at Route B with a 4:50)

It certainly does feel like it boosts you at least a couple frames ahead. But as you said, its more of a random occurrence- Though it can be used for safe but deadly strats (such as 'the noob cut' in palm beach (outrun mode))

The cooler parts of using cars as bumpers is that we can use them to stay on the road with AT (given that AT has much worse handling)
