A popular Japanese racing game series based on pullback toys created by Takara Corp. since 1978. The toys the games were based on were [[SuperDeformed chibi cars with smal ledge between front and back tires]] with a coin slot the back. With a coin inserted in the slot, the car will be able to do wheelies and stunts, hence being sold in the Western hemisphere as "Penny Racers". The majority of them are caricatures of actual cars. Its popularity has led the company into making many spinoffs of the series. There were even [[ConvenienceStoreGiftShopping low-priced]] imitators of the toys -- {{Shoddy Knockoff Product}}s. The series did get imported overseas under the name of "Gadget Racers" and "Penny Racers" with help from other companies such as Conspiracy Entertainment, Midas Interactive Entertainment and Play It!.

In 1997, ''Choro Q2'' introduced the WideOpenSandbox system that allows you to take a run around a town, unlocking shops and courses. ''Choro Q3'' (1998) added events and special hidden items into its town. And starting from ''Choro Q Wondeful'' (1999), the series introduced a full term of racing adventure system, complete with its own story and let you take a run between town, dungeons, or even time to advance the plot and unlock more courses. This concept is fully returned in the ''High Grade'' series from ''Choro Q HG 2'' to ''Choro Q HG 4'', in which HG 2 and HG 4 are imported to Europe and North America, in the name of ''Road Trip Adventure'' and ''Choro Q'', following in the order. (HG 3 was also released in Europe under the name ''Gadget Racers''. Which was also the name used in the US release of HG 1, so that's rather confusing.) And it's said that ''Road Trip Adventure'' is the best ''Choro Q'' game that exists outside Japan.

It should be noted that the PS2 games has different developers. What was localized as Road Trip Adventure (US,EU) and Gadget Racers (EU) was, respectively Choro Q HG2 and Choro Q HG3 by E-game. And what was localized as Penny Racers (EU) and Choro-Q (US,EU, by Atlus and Zoo Digital) was, respectively, Choro Q HG and Choro Q HG4 by Barnhouse Effect (that also develops SeekAndDestroy2002)



* ArtificialStupidity: Along with the floaty air physics, this is one of the only two major criticism of the game.



* FlyingSaucer: Located in the northwest of the Sandpolis outskirts, a stamp is earned for visiting the alien (an appropriate body being a Audi TT) at night.

* [[spoiler:BittersweetEnding: The game ends with the player becoming the champion but Norahike leaves the town for good and the protagonists best childhood friend/rival passed away from illness.]]



* DarkerAndEdgier: While it's not apparent at first, the plot involving death, corruption, and implied murder (just look at the journal at Budbach Haunted House).



* EleventhHourSuperpower:[[spoiler:The sixth sense when Barat's spirit speaks to you at the last lap of the final race. AwesomeMusic plays, and the track becomes trippy and starry, in which you simply follow the big sparkling star on the track as the game proceeds in BulletTime but you're faster than the other cars including the once hopelessly fast Otto.]]



* SpiritAdvisor: [[spoiler: Barat]].
