  4. Sega Rally was awesome. On the face of it, it should have been shit; 3 cars, 3 tracks iirc. Me and a mate used to waste whole weekends on it, trying to lower our best times. Good times.

    Did you ever play it on the sega saturn? Im sure it had more cars and stages but i can remember me and a couple if mates would hammer it on time trials trying to shave hundredths of a second off our times.....absolutely brilliant!!

  8. Had it on my ST and could never do it as a kid. Went back to it a few years later and it was loads easier. Did the levels start repeating after a while?

    Yep, the Saturn version started you out with 2 cars and three tracks, but you could unlock a fourth track and third car if you were half decent at it.

    This might make me a proper nerd mind but i have always wanted my own arcade cabinet - proper full size one not these bar top shite ones.

    would make a class project - build it from scratch and then put together a MAME system with all my old favourites - although my absolute favourite is street fighter 2 - i used to go to quasar at south shields pier amusements back in the day and they had 6 of them all in a row - must have spent a fortune on it!!
