    Nice and also quite a unique looking cab Ramere... You'll enjoy the comps all the more now, nothing beats playing the comp games on a cab I reckon!

    Just got a PB for this game and finally a 1st place finish in the first bikes level, not quite up to Monojokers current high but getting closer... game on

      Best so far, got through to the 1200cc round.

      EDIT: Ran out of fuel on the final section of the 1200cc....again.

        Before long you will be tweaking/modifying it yourself.
        Yep, picked it up on e-Bay, the seller has a long history of selling mame machines & has 100% positive feedback from 340+ poeple. Was gonna get a Jama cab but can't get anything under $1100 (+ minimum $400 postage) & none of them have Mat Mania on their game lists which is a must for me.

        Here's the description.

        NAMCO EXCELEENA CABINET
        POWERED BY A PENTIUM 4 - 2.0 COMPUTER
        512 MEG RAM, 40 GIG HARD DRIVE,
        NVIDIA GE FORCE VIDEO CARD.
        21" FLAT SCREEN CRT MONITOR.
        QUALITY STEREO SUB WOOFER AND SPEAKERS.
        RUNNING A IPAC 2 KEYBOARD ENCODER, ALSO COMES WITH INSTRUCTIONS FOR KEY & BUTTON CODES ETC.
        PRESENTLY RUNNING THE MAME PROGRAM.
        ALL CONTROLLED BY THE CONTROL PANEL.
        ARCADE MACHINE IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION,
        NOTHING TO SPEND, ALL SET UP AND READY TO GO.
        HAS DOOR LOCKS AND KEYS FOR ALL THE DOORS.
        COMES WITH EXTERNAL POWER SWITCH AND CREDIT BUTTON FOR FREE PLAY, ON THE CONTROL PANEL OF THE CABINET.
        THE MACHINE IS MENU DRIVEN WHICH MAKES IT VERY EASY TO OPERATE AND USE.
        CAN ALSO BE USED AS A JUKEBOX.

        To be honest I don't have much of a clue about the above but I'll soon learn, as long as I can plug it in & play I am happy for now. Would like to get it up to a 25"+ screen but that's a fair way down the track.

            Have to admit I wasn't all that keen when I first loaded this up, but i'm getting into it now. Still not managed a win, second once, favourite part is the gravel roads.
            Upto 150k now, really should of got past the 1200cc last game, but came unstuck on the winding road section.
            Hoping to challenge for the win on this now, good Nom for the mgl mono, game on

              It's a creeper this game, once you get into the swing of things.

              Just checked Twin Galaxies and the high for the arcade version is a mere 3,602,775 Guess this means this is one of those looping games where you go back to square one after a certain amount of levels ?

              Cool control panel for this game on the original cab:

                      I detest games that require me to slow down! But once I realised that it was absolutely necessary I managed to make it to NY

                        To Infinity and Beyond

                        After a week of yelling and frustration from my freezing cold garage, I finally made it through the 1200cc level to find - the 1200cc level is repeated.

                        Guess this means this game is a Moon Patrol type thing ? IE It gives you the final level over and over over

                        Am done now well and truly with this game. I think during the week I may have spoiled my fond memory of it, trying to beat the 1200cc level. When I did, it was more sheer relief, than any jubilation Bring on next game.

                            Note,
                            I may not have internet access after 7pm tonight. I will let this game run until tomorrow midday (27th/7th) as I won't be able to do scores until then.
                            Thanks everyone .

                                Awesome score Jammasized, you've done me in A well earned win and you've answered the question about what comes after 1200cc...
