While the speed of the player's chosen car, as well as the damage it does when it hits another car, is partly determined by its statistics as shown on the car selection screen, there is another mechanic that determines how fast and strong the car is. Throughout a race, the player has a Power bar that decreases constantly; a lower bar results in less speed and attacking strength, as well as reduced defence against collisions with or attacks by other cars. In order to recharge the Power bar, the player must [[DoABarrelRoll do stunts, such as barrel rolls or vertical loops, while airborne]]. Combined stunts, such as a forward vertical loop combined with a barrel roll while the vehicle spins in mid-air, recharge the Power bar more than doing each stunt separately. If a stunt recharges the Power bar such that it is full, the player's car will maintain full power for approximately three seconds.

* FragileSpeedster: Formula 7 is the embodiment of this trope. It is the fastest game car, as well as the weakest. Half the time, it will ''waste itself'' regardless of whether any other car is trying to waste it or not. Other examples include La Vita Crab, Drifter X and Mighty Eight.

* TheJuggernaut: With their incredibly high Strength rating and at full Power, [=EL KING=], M A S H E E N and DR Monstaa will deflect any attack on them like a bullet ricocheting off the armoured hulk of a tank. They won't even be knocked off course.

* BigBadassRig: EL KING. This car is based off a rig and is one of the strongest game cars in the series. In ''[=NFM1=]'', it ties with DR Monstaa for being the strongest game car, and although M A S H E E N takes over the title of strongest game car from ''[=NFM2=]'' onwards, EL KING is still a force to be reckoned with and is one of the few cars that can damage M A S H E E N while it is stationary.

* FragileSpeedster: Formula 7 is the embodiment of this trope. Half the time, it will ''waste itself'' regardless of your efforts. Its high speed does not help, as it can completely waste itself by driving into a wall at full speed. Other examples include La Vita Crab, Drifter X and Mighty Eight.
* GangUpOnTheHuman: The AI tends to attack the player en masse if the player is in first place and/or gets too near AI-driven cars.

The player also has a Damage bar that fills up whenever the player collides with something or gets hit by something. If this bar is filled completely, the player's car explodes, is disabled and considered to be wasted. To counter this, there is an electrified hoop that will fully repair any car that goes through it on most tracks.

WHAT? NO! OK. THE FOLLOWING GAME IS REALLY MAD BECAUSE UNLIKE OTHER GAMES IT DOES NOT TRY TO [[PhysicsGoof OBEY OR EMULATE ANY RULES OF PHYSICS CORRECTLY]]. IN FACT, IT WAS PROGRAMMED ON THE BASES OF "[[RuleOfCool IF IT LOOKS COOL AND FEELS COOL THEN ITS COOL]]".\\

* CoolCar: Radical One is arguably the coolest of the lot, with the highest Stunt rating of any car, sporting [[PimpedOutCar rear fins and featuring a streamlined body]], allowing it to reach very high speeds. [[LightningBruiser Said speeds can also be put to other uses too.]] Other cars that fall into this category include High Rider and Kool Kat.

* RammingAlwaysWorks: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig-zagging]]. Ramming another car at full Power will ''usually'' do a metric ton of damage to them while you usually get away with a scratch. However, attempting to ram another car with your Power bar below even three-quarters of full will almost always result in you bouncing off your target harmlessly ''and'' taking a lot of damage in return. [[YetAnotherStupidDeath You might even waste yourself this way]], and with weaker cars such as Nimi, even full Power is no insurance against head-on suicides with stronger cars.
