I still do. I wish people would stop thinking it's just another racing game. Watch and listen to this video to understand why Stunt Race FX is unique.
If any one of the cars from Stunt Race FX appeared in SSBB as playable characters, then I would believe they would punch and kick with their tires, use their "honk + jump" move as their UP + B move, and use their turbo boosters as their FORWARD + B move. Some other things in the game can be used as their other moves. Even though, cars aren't really suitable enough to fight, these are cartoony cars. SEGA made one for Fighter's Megamix, which is the Hornet stock car from the Daytona USA series.
I still love Stunt Race FX - it was one of the games I picked up for the SNES off ebay recently. I played it briefly when I was younger and then later I tried playing it through a dodgy emulator.
But the actual game is great. I remember the reviews of the game when it came out and really wanting it. The clay models of the cars were brilliant and I wish I had one ;D
But I simply love the characterisation in the game. The 3D was a step up from StarFox (but as usual the PAL conversion suffered from huge black bars obscuring most of the screen).
I seriously doubt the cars would show up in SSBB as fighters, but I would love to see a trophy or two commemorating this excellent little racing game. Too bad it's unlikely we'll ever see a sequel since Mario Kart moved into 3D as well.

I absolutely loved Stunt Race FX when it came out! There were so many cool modes, and the track design was brilliant. I played it all the time, despite its shortcomings.
I'm not usually one to complain about frame rate issues, but even at the time of the game's release, it seemed really choppy to me. And thus, the control, too, was sluggish. These were faults I was able to forgive at the time, but I hate to say the game hasn't aged well for me. I'll always have fond memories, but I can't enjoy the game now.
Of course, if Nintendo ever decided to make a new one, I'd be all for it!
Man.... all those animated commericals from the 90's make me wonder why there wasn't a TV show for every Nintendo game on the SNES. The Super Metroid and Zelda shows could've been live action.... and Mario and such could be animes...
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
