MOST DIFFICULT GOTCHA IN GAME! (Tip: Set up a 1v1 race v the computer with a few laps, drive over yellow active pads to gain your mines then reverse to hairpin and plant four mines in a line so the CPU has to swing wide of the corner and then reverse up to the Gotcha button and sit on it. Let the CPU drive past you and fire a missile so he start to lose control and with luck it should send him onto the pads - may take a few attempts.)
