Drive by guiding Lightning with the joystick. Long, sweeping motions work best. When Lightning turns around, he will make U-turns. To make Lightning drift while driving, change directions quickly. There are some other awesome ways to have fun driving with Lightning...

  • Reverse: To drive Lightning in reverse, hold the top button, showing Lightning with an arrow going backward, while using the joystick to drive in the direction you want to go.

  • Doughnuts: To have Lightning do doughnuts, hold the middle button, showing Lightning sliding, while pushing the joystick to the edge of the puck.

  • Boost: Give Lightning a boost by holding the bottom button with the arrow while driving with the joystick.


The Ultimate Lightning McQueen application also allows for RC-style controls. For details on how to switch to RC controls, follow the link.
