This is a "True" or "False" flag which determines if a best time can be recorded with the respective car.

This is a "True" or "False" flag which determines if the car is available for the player to select or not.

This line uses the respective numbers of "0", "1", or "2" to tell the game what type of engine your car has, which determines the sound of your car.

0 = Electric Engine - This engine produces the least power and sounds like your average battery powered R/C car.

1 = Glow (or Gasoline) Engine - Produces more power than the Electric engine and sounds like a weed-whacker.

2 = Special Engine (used by UFO) - This engine is basically the same as the Glow engine.

This setting determines when the user may be able to use (unlock) the car. This setting requires the use of the numbers -1 to 4

-1 = Special requirement - This means the car cannot be unlocked unless you have typed the "carnival" cheat as your name.

0 = Starting car - This means that the car is available from the start of the game.

1 = Championship mode - The car will be unlocked by doing Championship mode in the game.

2 = Time Trials mode - The car will be unlocked by doing Time Trials mode.

3 = Practice mode - The car will be unlocked by collecting stars in Practice mode or Stunts mode.

4 = Single Race mode - The car is unlocked by doing Single Race mode (stock Re-Volt tracks)

This determines the class of your car. It uses the numbers 0 to 4.

0 = Rookie Class - The slowest class with a top speed of 32 mph (51.5 km/h).

1 = Amateur Class - Next class up from Rookie with a top speed of 35 mph (56.33 km/h)

2 = Advanced - Step up from Amateur with a top speed of 37 mph (59.55 km/h)

3 = Semi-Pro - One class up from Advanced with a top speed of 41 mph (65.98 km/h)

4 = Pro - The highest class with a top speed of 43 mph (69.2 km/h)

This is the display for the cars actual top speed in feet per minute. This is only for car selection display and will not affect your car.

The mathematical formula to convert mph into feet per minute is as follows:
mph *5280 / 60 = Feet per minute

The formula from km/h to feet per minute is as follows:
kmh * 3273.6 / 60 = Feet per minute

If you are not using Re-Volt 1.2, there is no need to adjust this setting. (Re-Volt 1.2 adds a command line which allows the use of this setting.

This is for the car selection display of the acceleration of the car. It is a reverse scale from 12 to 0. (Maybe representative of time?) 0 represents a very fast acceleration, and 12 represents a slow acceleration.

If you are not using Re-Volt 1.2, there is no need to adjust this setting. (Re-Volt 1.2 adds a command line which allows the use of this setting.)

This is the actual weight of the car in kilograms (kg), when calculating your weight for car selection display you should include the weight of your tires in this section. (Tires are most generally .15 kg in weight, but not always)

For those who are wondering how much 1 kg is in pounds (lbs), here it is: 1 kg = 2.21 lbs.

If you are not using Re-Volt 1.2, there is no need to adjust this setting. (Re-Volt 1.2 adds a command line which allows the use of this setting.

This setting uses number input from 0-100. All stock Re-Volt cars have been set to 50. As far as we know, this number does nothing. It's not for car selection display and does not affect your car.

This shows the type of transmission your car has (RWD, FWD, or 4WD) for car selection display. It does not affect your car. It uses a range from 0 to 2.

0 = Four (or All) wheel Drive

1 = Front Wheel Drive

2 = Rear Wheel Drive

This setting deals with the Tachometer in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. However, that we know of, it does nothing special.
