Players can activate a vehicle's hydraulics by holding a particular button for each platform. The hydraulics can be controlled whilst activated and allow the car's body to pivot depending on the height from each individual hydraulic.
A vehicle's hydraulics can be upgraded to different levels as each upgrade will add new abilities. The vehicle will be given additional hydraulic movement as well as adding a bounce ability after reaching the highest possible upgrade.
There are three levels of hydraulics; levels 1, 2, and 3. Level 1 is basic hydraulics where only the vehicle's front and back can go up and down. Level 2 makes it so that the sides can go up and down as well. Level 3 makes it so that the car can do levels 1 and 2 as well as bounce in the front, back, and sides.
