* EasterEgg:
** In ''San Francisco Rush'' Track 2, if you can jump across the gap in the Bay Bridge, you'll find a hidden half-pipe stunt area with advertisements for ''Mace: The Dark Age'', one of Midway's other games.
** In the console ports of ''San Francisco Rush'' and ''Rush: The Rock'', Track 6 (7 in ''The Rock'') has a hidden cavern where the Sutro Baths would be containing a two-story stunt arena.

* NoFairCheating: Trying to get keys in the console ports? Sorry, you can't pick them up in practice mode! Subverted, in that you can just enter the "no time limit" cheat and play the basic race mode, then get the keys with no issue.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The Rocket in ''Rush 2'', Has explosive acceleration and handling, and, unsurprisingly for a rocket on wheels, handles like an elephant on ice.

** ''2049''[='=]s Track 3 has a bridge ramp you can jump, and the game will measure your jump height. It is possible to get a jump height of over 100 by driving up one of the bridge rails, at which point the height counter will flash, but [[CosmeticAward you get no gameplay advantage for it]] and you'll likely slow yourself down more than if you just jumped normally.

* EveryCarIsAPinto: Your car will instantly explode if flipped upside down, no exceptions. Or if you crash at a certain speed.
** ''Rush 2'' adds a "Suicide" mode, found in the cheat menu, where [[MadeOfExplodium even TOUCHING another car causes both cars to explode]], with especially hilarious results at the beginning of an 8-car race when the CPU-controlled opponents inevitably bump into each other. However, turning the Suicide setting to "Humans" will cause only human-controlled cars to exhibit this behavior.

A series of arcade-style racing games, originally developed by [[{{Atari}} Atari Games]] and released by MidwayGames. The games focus on [[JumpPhysics jump physics]] and wildly insane stunts instead of realistic gameplay, though it's possible to turn up the realism for more advanced players. True to the title, the races are held in the streets and environs of San Francisco (a simplified version, really), where the hilly terrain provides numerous opportunities to perform jumps and stunts.
