Vehicle Boost is a manually operated boost that the player can use by pressing the gas button twice rapidly. This feature is available in all three Vigilante 8 titles, but its presentation varies with each game. In Vigilante 8 and Vigilante 8: 2nd Offense, the Boost simply gives your vehicle a quick thrust with the sound of screeching tires. In Vigilante 8: Arcade, the Boost shows the vehicle shoot fire out of their exhaust pipe while giving them a quick thrust of speed. A Vehicle Boost can be used approximately once every 1.5 seconds.
