Pitstop II is one of those games that I believe accesses the floppy  
hardware directly, and as such, won't work from DriveWire.  There are  
a few other games out there that fall under the same category.   
Unfortunate, but those software authors (for whatever reason) chose  
not to .

I am pretty sure that Donkey Kong DOES work with DriveWire, but  
someone else can probably verify that.
