Extreme drive: Formula Off-Roader
Nothing else on Earth comes close. Like dragracing up a cliff. Massive power, minimal comfort

The tyres, by the way, are scooped rather than treaded, and have wonderfully descriptive names. The set-up I'm using today consists of ‘BiggerDiggers' on the front, with ‘SuperScoopers' out back. Tread shuffle not an option. To even move such ridiculous rubberwear from the wheel, the hydraulic pumps from a pair of forklift trucks take the place of power steering, and the rest is pretty basic; a fuel-cell - runs rarely last more than a few minutes - engine shut-off and basic dialset that monitors incipient motor detonation. There are other switches, but apparently I don't need to know what they are.
