Running the game with fewer detail actually increased your chances of winning, as there were less trees off-road to block your way.

While the first two Test Drives were developed by Distinctive Software Inc, this one has been done in-house by Accolade (DSI did Stunts in about the same time). This resulted in many differences and enhancements over the first two games: some good and others really bad.
