The Turbo is a Pickup that upon activation grants its user a sudden burst of speed, launching them into the direction the crafts nose is pointing towards. The Turbo´s ability to launch vertically make it ideal for cutting track sections.
The Turbo pickup generally only appears in events in which Hyperthrust is unavailable. Speed Lap, Rush Hour and Races done in 2280 mode being primary examples.
As of Version 1.2.4 Turbo can be enabled as a pickup in Multiplayer lobbys.
