Welcome to Bandipedia!



Turbos (also known as Turbo Boosts) are items in Crash Team Racing, Crash Nitro Kart, and Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. They give the player a burst of speed. Juiced up turbos give the player a bigger burst of speed.

They can technically be used as a weapon in CTR and Nitro-Fueled, as using a Turbo directly behind an opposing racer will squash them, the only power-up with that capability. Despite this, it is impossible to start Battle Mode with just the Turbo power-up selected.
