ModelsIcon.png This game has unused models.
Carts.png This game has revisional differences.

This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
This page sucks.
If you could make it suck less, that would be awesome.
Specifically: Probably better for the Wii version to have its own page if it has unused content.

What happens when you take a beloved racing game series, give it to the team that made Pizza Dude, and let them recycle nearly everything from their other games? You get one of the worst racing games in existence, a game so terrible that for a time it was the #1 (Now in #4 as 2024) Worst-rated game on Steam.

To do:
  • Unused sounds.
  • Leftover Wii files and other stuff such as debug scripts.
  • Flatout Stuntman and Wii differences.

Unused Map

test.dcw, present in the Maps folder. This map is just a skybox and nothing else.

Wii Differences

  • Has split screen.
  • Main menu screen is different.
  • Only 4 game modes: Racing, Stunt, Battle Arena, and the Wii-exclusive Car Basher (which has you quickly smash your cars to gain more points).
  • Just 14 cars are present. Further, Niago, Aumedo GT, and Orbetti have different car designs.
  • Extra menu doesn't exist and can view "Credits" in this version.
  • Selecting your car is different: there are three tuning options (suspension, engine, and tires) instead of using tuning presets, and info is displayed for each car instead of stats.
  • The cars have no drivers except in Stunt mode.
