'Altered Beast / Turbo Out Run'

I looked at the loader for Altered Beast and Turbo Out Run, and they are basically the same. The disk ID labels it as "SLOAD" (Sega-Load? Super-Load? Stolen-Load?)

The loader is a decent fast-loader that reads standard CBM DOS sectors, but how it's stored and loaded in is the interesting part. It's either licensed or lifted from V-Max 3. The only difference is that the DOS is stored on track 38 or 36 instead of 20 and the byte sequence it looks for to signal the start of data on this track is different.

For Altered Beast it is: 77 A9 E3 95 C5 A5 95 A5 95 A5 95 A5 95 A5 95 99 B3

For Turbo Out Run, it's $77 and then the byte sequence decodes to "SLOAD01T" before reading in the loader.
