The Hot Rod is a powerup that drastically increases the car's acceleration to a dangerous amount; it also tweaks the suspension, making the car's front lift up while driving. The increased speed and difficult turning mean this powerup can only be safely used in a straight line, and even then, if a hard obstacle appears ahead it could spell damage.

For fun, players usually add this cheat along with Gravity From Jupiter to cancel the suspension effect.
