Where is this adjustment in the menu? I toggle through the settings and don't see a way to increase the feature that saves the ball if you lose it right away. Mine seems set at like 5 seconds and really does no good to save a drained ball. I would like to up that to about 10 seconds at least but don't see any option that says Free Ride time. Is it called something else in the menu? Thanks!

I don't see any way to adjust it after a quick glance at the manual either...practice practice practice...Getaway is a pretty easy game IMO....its all about loops and more loops...I had a nice example at one time..great fast game

My machine gives me about 10 seconds. My uncle's machine only gives 5 seconds. I also would like to know how and why. HS2 fans please help.

I believe different roms have different times ive had l1 , l2 and l5 and l2 was 10sec free ride rest were 5sec

I have l5 rom and remember adjusting mine. I changed all the special awards to free balls. I think all those settings were in the same menu. I have to leave in a minute and will check later.

I was mistaken. I changed the kickback times to easy, not free time. Looking at the adjustment menu, I don't see a setting for free ride. Mine stays lit 10 seconds.
