* NoDamageRun: The final mission requires you to deliver a barrel of waste to [[spoiler:the alien ship's tractor beam]]. Since it's strapped to your bumper, you have to make the delivery without a single major impact to the car. While this might sound easy, you're on a time limit and two of the three throw a black sedan into the mix which you have to outrun on the first pass.
* NotQuiteDead: After a car blows up, you can still drive it. Even though all that's left is the charred, twisted framework and the bent up rims. If you find a Golden Wrench nearby, though, you can restore it to new for free. Otherwise you have to fork over 10 coins to restore any of the vehicles available from the phone booth.

* RacingMiniGame: There are four in each level, three standard and one wager race. The first three are run by Milhouse, Nelson, and Ralph.[[note]]Except for Level 7, where they are run by zombies.[[/note]] They often don't do a standard countdown. [[TheDitz Ralph]] has to be the funniest. The fourth one is run by Louie, and is repeatable.

Added DiffLines:

* UnwinnableByMistake: Level 3's "Clueless" can be rendered uncompletable. Normally, you have to talk to Milhouse at the Springfield Sign to complete the mission. If he gets knocked into the nearby water, he won't respawn, forcing the player to restart.

** Simply put, the computer can drive any car faster than you can, ''better'' than you can, and is magically much heavier than the same car is under your control. CPU Bart's Ferrini in the Level 5 bonus races is THE SECOND-FASTEST car in the game, bar none (excluding the secret car in Level 1). However, this often is an inverse (or sometimes heavily played with) for higher-tiered cars that appear in the later levels; Snake's Lil' Bandit in the Level 2 mission Bart 'n' Frink is much slower compared to the original version, but is arguably the tankiest car in the game. Needless to say, the actual stats of certain cars in control of the player and CPU are very inconsistent in terms of who has the upper hand.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: If you hack the game or use an action replay or some such device to play as characters on levels where you're not supposed to, you'll find that some playable characters have lines that can't be heard in normal gameplay. For example, all five playable characters have lines for destroying power conduits, even though you can only destroy power conduits in one mission in the entire game (Blind Big Brother), and said mission can only be played as Homer.

* LightningBruiser: Mr. Burns' limo, which is second to none in all-around stats at 4.5 Speed / 3 Acceleration / 4.5 Toughness / 3.5 Handling. Its primary shortcoming is its mediocre acceleration and handling, but it is the definitely the fastest "tough" car. Also, it only becomes available in Level 7, the final level.
