Do you remember the good old days, the days of cheat codes and demo discs? If you do, you probably remember the PS1 pretty fondly, which is good, because that’s the era we are talking about here. The original Crash Team Racing had a plethora of cheat codes that you could use for various effects. That’s right, these are the Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Cheat Codes, while not all of them are making a return from the original game, their inclusion at all is a really cool nod to the old-school days of gaming. 

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Cheat Codes
