The Turbo Slider or the Turboslider was a land vehicle with two back wheels and a ski replacing the front wheels. It also had a turret on top which was used by another player in multi-player mode or by Skrunch during the story. It was created solely for use by the Q-Force and was normally used for ground assaults at enemy bases. They were very fast and easily evaded enemy fire, and traveled over virtually any terrain.
Behind the scenes
The Florana Turbo Slider race circuit was an area of planet Florana used for Turbo Slider races. Although the turbo slider races were cancelled due to lack of time, the only one that was finished was kept in the Insomniac museum. As it is not finished, some elements, like trees, parts of the ground and the ocean are not solid; Ratchet can go through and under them. As for the sea, it is not completed and Ratchet can either walk on it or fall under it. The background is also the same as that in Burbank.
The race circuit on Florana was the only race circuit ever finished (or partly finished); however, was cut from game. When in the Insomniac museum, Ratchet could teleport to the race circuit and drive a turboslider around the track. The circuit did not seem to feature in the Nabla Forest, but in another forest and was set next to an ocean, and a few streams. Also, huts and primitive buildings made out nearby trees were seen as well. On the track were bumps and hills that Ratchet had to drive over and jump off.
