** You can get busted if you're out of your car and you get knocked over by Chief Wiggum's Police Car in the few missions where he's present as an obstacle to avoid, race or follow, though you don't pay the 50 coins in that case.



* DummiedOut: An [[JokeCharacter Ice Cream Truck]] exists in the game. The only way to drive it without hacking the game, however, is to achieve 100% completion and then use a special cheat code to call up otherwise-unobtainable vehicles from phone booths. It's uncertain whether the Ice Cream Truck was going to serve a purpose in the game (most likely in the tutorial level, where retrieving ice-cream is one of the required goals, or traffic vehicle), or if it's just an EasterEgg. It's worth noting that the truck has a Marge-shaped ice cream cone atop it, a reference to the episode "Homer Alone". There also exists a LEGO-like brick car, Audi TT quattro Sport, three other cell-phone cars, a vandalized cyan and grey truck, and two traffic vehicles that where never used.

** 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 Ferrari (called Ferrini in-game presumably to avoid copyright) 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 [[FragileSpeedster 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.

But since you require HundredPercentCompletion to actually use the cheat, there's not much use for it other than novelty. You can also drive backwards on the multiplayer courses.

* CompetitiveBalance: Naturally, no one car is the answer to everything; balanced between Speed, Acceleration, Toughness, and Handling means that some cars are very fast but can't take a hit, are very fast but handle poorly, are fast and tough but slow to accelerate, etc. Mr. Burns' limo (driven by Waylon Smithers in the third and final missions of Level 1) and the Hearse (the replacement of the usual police cars during hit-and-runs in Level 7) both come the closest to being universally viable, but neither are available until the last level of the game.

** 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.

Commonly regarded as one of the best ''Simpsons'' tie in games, it's still enjoyed by the fandom to this day, making it [[SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames a licensed game that does not suck!]] The PC version also has a somewhat active modding community, with numerous mods adding in new content and other interesting stuff.
