The minimum score required in Dragster by Activision to earn an Activision patch was: get below 6 seconds in the video quarter mile. The best advice in Dragster by Activision is to read the manual so that you know all of the nuances of the game. The manual gives some really good tips on this game. Make sure both difficulty switches are set to B. Dragster was designed by David Crane.
Begin with the clutch engaged. When the timer reaches 1, press on the button and release the clutch as the timer reaches zero. Shift immediately to second gear without letting off of the button. Shift to third gear pretty quickly, never releasing the button and then into fourth gear never releasing the button. Keep holding down the button and give about 4 quick crisp taps of the joystick to the left to pop a small short wheelie with each tap. Leave about a half second between each tap to give the Dragster time to settle down between wheelies, otherwise it is technically spinning wheels out of control. This will raise your tachometer to maximum. Be ready to release the button and engage the clutch just before the engine is blown near the end.
