    Crazy Maneuvers are the moves that will get you combos that will add more
    cash. You can use them any time, but to get more cash you must use them
    when you're driving the customer. Same as the old Crazy Taxi.
    
    
    1-Crazy Dash: Release accelerates, push B and accelerate.
    This move will speed you up a little, use it to get more speed. 
    
    2-Crazy Drift: Release accelerate, push A, shift back into drive and 
    keep holding B while accelerating and turning sharply for 
    power slide turn.
    Use this to get a fast turn; this will get you some combos.
     
    3-Crazy Through: Drive through traffic without hitting any thing.
    This is hard if you're driving like crazy, but it will get you the most
    combos and that will get you more cash. Use it carefully because if you
    hit another car you will lose all combos and start from zero again.
      
    4-Crazy stop: Crazy dash, then hold reverse and brake. 
    Vary useful for fast stop; use it all the time when stopping. 
    
    5-Limit Cut: Crazy dash, crazy drift, and then crazy dash again.
    A must use all the time; this will get you to the top speed.
