Target is a gamemode that was cut from BallisticNG in version 1.0. It was introduced in version 0.8.
Target is a time trial derivative where you can shave off time from the clock by piloting as perfectly as possible. Boosting decreases the time at which time ticks and scraping or entering the pitlane increases it. When you finish a lap, how much time you have shaved through boosting will be displayed.
