I have been looking everywhere for this game and couldn't remember the name of it.
Finally found it here and as soon as I saw the screenshots the memories started pouring in. I remember building tracks for hours at a time and then racing them. This was such a fun game. I wish I still had my retail big box copy, but that was discarded when I got married and moved out. Thank you for this site!

I've been playing SODA since its release. I load it every few years and try to break track records which never gets old. The people who didn't give it a chance missed a gem of a game. Intense addictive racing once you get it, frustrating as hell until you do.

This game has absolutely amazing physics for it's time, even playing it with a steering wheel now is great fun. A lot of the same people went on to make NR2003, which is popular to this day.
