A "temp" paint job for Ramone found in the data.

Unused Icons

CarsRaceORama-Icon MCQT a.png

An unused icon for Dragon McQueen found in the files. Due to Tokyo Mater lacking icons in two player mode, this goes unused.

CarsRaceORama-Icon SHE a.png CarsRaceORama-Icon SCE a.png

Unused icons depicting early designs for Doc and Chick's students, which were seen in a prerelease screenshot.

Unused Preview Image

CarsRaceORama-CS 01 event preview.png

An unused event preview for the first cutscene in the game. This appears to be based on a much earlier build, as if you look closely you can see Lightning has different/earlier kit parts, and the students in the background do not look like any students in the game, not even the earlier ones with the unused icon.

Early Loading Screen

CarsRaceORama-Load logo.png

Present in C/UI/Tex in the Nintendo Wii version, is an early loading screen. Its very similar to another loading screen of Lightning McQueen that's used and might be an earlier version of that, however it has quite a few noticeable differences compared to the used one. McQueen's using a different tire set, has a much more tense and exaggerated expression, and it presents the associated company's logos at the bottom of the screen.

Unused Models

mcq_bodymesh.xng in the Xbox 360 version is an early model for Lightning with different kit pieces. A GIF depicting this model of Lightning with those kit pieces can be seen above, along with a YouTube video with this model in a race ingame.
