    Do you have it set on Motion Sensor Function? That could be the problem.

It must be a game malfunction because you cant change the controls in the game.

I need a new back wheel for a dynacraft hot wheels powerslide trike can you tell me where i can buy some from? thanks

You can contact dynacraft directly but you have to give them the serial number of the trike.

I have the razor scream machine which is made by the same manufacturer but dynacraft won't sell me the wheels unless I give them a serial number from their hotwheels powerslide model. Could you post the serial number on your trike? It would really help out myself and all the other scream machine owners who currently can't get replacement wheels.

How do you do a manual in this game? I dont have the handbook that came with it and could use some help! thanks


Here you have the controls extracted from on following thread:

Like every good video game, this one needs controls, and you need to know
them. Here they are.

TRIANGLE: Cancel. Grinds if used while moving parallel to a rail, plants if
moving perpendicular to a halfpipe edge or rail, and allows you to 'Wallride'
if moving near parallel to a wall, and a 'Foot Plant' if moving perpendicular
to a wall.

CIRCLE: Used in grab tricks, in some specials, and in some manual additions.
Hold it or just tap it for aerial tricks, do it in quick succession with
other buttons while in a manual.

X: Confirm. Traditional to Activision games, hold this down to ride at
cruising speed, and let go of it to bunny-hop. Press Up Up X to 'Bronco

SQUARE: Used in quick tricks, some specials, and some manual additions. In
quick tricks either tap or hold it, in manuals use it in quick succession
with the directional buttons.

D-PAD: Moves your rider, as well as balancing while in manuals, stalls and
grinds. Also used to do moves. Tap it to do moves. Hold down to brake, and
up to go faster.

R1: Used to rotate right quickly in the air, or to powerslide. To rotate,
hold it down. To powerslide, hold it down and hold down while on the ground.

L1: Same as R1, except you rotate left, or powerslide left.

R2: Used to 'Tweak' tricks. Hold it and tap the directional buttons during
any trick for a tweak.

L2: Primarily used in manuals. Hold it down while on the ground, and it will
cancel any jumps, so you can let go of X and not jump. It will allow you to
start a manual by pressing this and then up down, etc. You can switch manual
types while holding this, (ex: hold L2, press up down, go into manual, then
press down up and you'll switch to a nose manual without jumping).

Hope this helped.

Amplifier problem

You answered your own question. Running a 1 ohm load on a amp (not that great a amp to begin with) has probably resulted in shorted output transistors. Hence the always lit protection LEDs. Only a repair shop can remedy this.
