Does anyone of you own this game? For me it is the favorite racing game ever but unfortunately my 'oldies' CD is broken for ages.  :(

I don't want to be a party killer, but it won't work under XP / Windows 7 + DOSBox.

This was a great game. I bought a used Thrustmaster T1 steering wheel mainly for this game and for F1GP2. Stunts was less fun with the wheel :)

I love the interlaced!!! video intro and of course the Subaru beats all other cars, though the Proton could be a nice surprise. A friend of mine has the same model Subaru Impreza - amazing car.

Had also an add-on with Hungarian navigator sounds - it was fun :)

did some investigation. no wonder it was a good game. It was designed by Magnetic Fields, who are also responsible for Lotus III Turbo Challenge and Kikstart.
I loved Kikstart II. We had excellent battles with my brother.

Is it the same steering wheel we used at HSM? :D

I always seemed to find my best times with Escort rather than Impreza. Proton was great but having 5 shift gears messed with it's acceleration too much.
I remember sometimes using a really high and stiff suspension to gain speed rapidly in bumpy roads, so I guess that is a shared bug with Stunts.
