For TXR:0 be sure to experiment with the steering sensitivity option, because as I recall I think maxing it out (+15?) makes the handling more bearable. The technique as I worked it out is to basically pivot-steer the car into a drift for every corner. It's a crude game, but a classic with Genki's unique gameplay and a memorable soundtrack.
Ah! Now I know why it sounded so familiar but the name didn't click. 👍Racing Evoluzione was called APEX in the US, and it was a pretty awesome game. I remember picking it up blind just after I got my Xbox and being so happy with my purchase.
