Trivia

This game is referred to in a few places as "4D-Racing". Search Related Sites for the FAQ and more info why.

Stunts was developed by the same team (DSI) that made Test Drive and Test Drive 2 for Accolade. It was released around the same time Test Drive 3 (not made by DSI) was released.

Editor's note: Accolade chose not to renew their business relationship with DSI for Test Drive 3 because DSI had, under a "psuedonym" (USI), used the same technology they developed for TD1 and TD2 in Outrun. Accolade sued them, claiming that they owned all the technology created for the Test Drive projects. (If memory serves, they settled out of court with DSI paying a settlement to Accolade.)

One of the appealing features of Stunts is how buggy it is. It is not uncommon to hit a car, wall, or other obstacle and--instead of merely crashing--fly straight up into the air 500 feet high, then slowly fall back to earth. There are many replays available on Stunts fan pages that document this.
