|A powerup in||NBP|
The Wheel Spikes powerup makes small spinning spikes come out of the player's wheels, pointing outwards to the sides. These are meant to be used on opponents to the sides of the player, but they are hard to use, since they only damage wheels, creating small blue sparks and a scraping saw noise. After a short time, the opponent's wheels will be destroyed, crippling the vehicle. These spikes have no effect on pedestrians.
- If the game is paused, with the P key or by opening Action Replay, the spikes will continue spinning.
