Loved the paint jet and paint grenades. Based on the exterior mount, I'd say it was more like the Chassis and Crossbows expansion.

Ah, yes.

When I played Pole Position I always though the game would have been so much better if only I could shoot the cars ahead of me on the track.

Then, a few years later, I walked into an arcade and there was Roadblasters to make that dream come true. Smashing game, that one.

I'm a storm torrent across a slate-gray sea
I rush in billowed reflections a fast, fast dark sky over an Edinburgh's meadow's wet
I bolt white high through snowfall cold
I am lightning in the night
I sprint like fire across a match head
And leap across lakes of dream-stuff
Over ancient walls
Past armies fast as fast is
Faster than quicksilver can fall into the sun
I, bounding, prance unstoppable to you
My all
My everything dream
