There are different kinds of powerups strewn all around the tracks. There are basically two kinds: Inventory Powerups and Immediate Powerups. Inventory powerups are weapons and other items which you can collect and use whenever you like. The Immediate Powerups are ones which activate immediately when you get them and remain active for a specified duration.
To activate an Inventory Powerup press the Throw Forward or Throw Backward key. You can only hold one kind of Inventory Powerup at a time. The current Powerup and the quantity that you have appears at the top of the screen:
These bones are packed with high explosives. Throw them at your opponents to knock them off course. Drop these in front of your opponent's path. If they run over it they will lose traction and spin out. IMMEDIATE POWERUPS
Activate these when you need an extra speed boost. You will have 5 seconds of super speed.

Immediate Powerups are activated the instant you get them, and they only last for a specified amount of time. Their icon and the time remaining appears on the left of the screen:
Gives you super sticky traction. It's almost impossible to skid with this active!
Very useful for cars with poor suspension. This reduces the amount of ricochetting off of bumps and walls.
In multi-player battle modes this will make you invisible. You will not even appear on the other players' overhead map.
