Just about every 'better on the Spectrum' game seems to be a racer - Chase HQ, Hard Drivin' and this really come to mind. The Spectrumv ersion compromised the visual effects and focused on the gameplay - this was over-ambitious and looked great until it started moving - although 'it started jerking around almost at random, making it impossible to judge corners' would be more accurate.

This was one of my favourite games in the arcade, so I was quite excited to play it at home on my ST, unfortunately I think the game was perhaps a bit too much for it. As mentioned below the frame rate is very poor and the game jerks along, making it very hard to see where the track goes. I remember they managed to get all the insulting hand gestures in the ST version though! All in all, pretty good fun, but don't expect too much!

I spent many a happy day playing this at the arcades but never got to play the ST version. I hope to remedy that shortly....

This game was a barrel of laughs once you learned the layout of the tracks (often essential given the slideshow-prone framerate). I once had the dubious honour of thrashing the highscore listed in CVG for ST Power Drift, but sadly missed my moment of fame as they never published my score...
