I played a game with a friend who said my skin hadn't initially loaded but then appeared on the car later on, so maybe just takes a while for it to update.|
Some people seem to do really well with Axel, his main special pulls in his wheels and rides over the top of cars for quite a bit of damage. However as I understand it the more people you run over with one special the more powerful it gets, so good for crowds. Alternate is a shockwave, like his classic TM2 special.
Don't point that beard at me, it might go off!
