IF: "Snap"

Something inside the car just snapped.

Had this lying around and thought it would be fitting
for this weeks IF. Semester has just begun and it´s already
a tight schedule (but sounds like fun this time!).

The story behind this is that I bought some cheapo
handheld game system while being on vacation in Texel,
Netherlands. It had all kinds of very barebone games on it
(I bought it just because I have a soft side for strange videogame
related things), and one of those games was called
"Fast Race". The imagination of this title instantly stunned
me, but I found out that is was more like "Slow Race (with
constant annoying humming sound and endlessly repeating
levels)".

So there!
FAST RACE! ENGINE START!
GET THE POWER UP AND WIN THE GAME.
FOR GREAT JUSTICE.

(If you don´t get these hints, be happy that
you can´t consider yourself a nerd.)
