Dakars are a faster alternative to Buggies for sand terrains. They are only available from mid-level onwards in Egypt and Easter Island, as well as Hong Kong 7, a predominantly concrete track with a small stretch of sand.
1997 Manual Description Edit
These four-wheel drive, resilient racers offer terrain-gripping handling. Boasting faster top speeds and higher chassis than buggies, they require experienced drivers to maintain control and prevent rolling.
Dakars appear in total eight levels, which is one less than sports cars. Their top speed range is between 120 to 140 mph. Dakars replace buggies in the third level of Easter Island, whereas in Egypt they first appear on the fourth.
Dakars are more flexible and versatile than dune buggies, but somewhat less forgiving. Like buggies and rallies, the in-game Dakars are divided into clear pairs, being similar in overall physical appearance and driving experience.
Xu and Roberts resemble the Peugeot 405 Turbo 16. They are slightly heavy, with fair top speed and slow acceleration. Xu's vehicle feels more flexible than Roberts, but it is more susceptible to attacks.
