Default Electronica Racing Game Soundtracks?

Hey guys I was wondering if anybody could recommend some good racing soundtracks that are mostly electronica or jazzy in nature. Ones I own and like are: Sega Rally 2006, Forza 3, Ridge Racer series, Wangan Midnight series, Racing Lagoon, Enthusia, Racing Battle C1, etc...

Based off my tastes could anybody recommend some other titles I'd probably enjoy? Thanks for your help

F-Zero GX/AX would be a good, modern start.

It never got a soundtrack release (so it's bloody hard to find), but Re-Volt had a neat electronic soundtrack. I think Gran Turismo has some cool stuff in those genres as well.

Driving Emotion Type-S
And if you become desperate, there's a cute little MIDI soundtrack myself and others composed for a fictional racing game... Let me know if you're interested.

jazzy? well gee, that narrows it down :P fusion style music is all over racing games, for some reason. you mentioned ridge racer games as well as racing lagoon, which are definitely picks for me... you may also like driving emotion type-S, gran turismo series as mentioned, choro Q2, choro Q3, outrun 2, daytona USA...and if high fidelity audio isn't a huge concern there's also some good SNES ones with a funk/fusion flavour -- exhaust heat, suzuka 8 hours, aguri suzuki F-1 super drive, GP-1, battle grand prix, the king of rally, final stretch.... even older are things like konami's F-1 Spirit (GB/MSX) and of course outrun...

i'm sure i know more than this but nothing else comes to mind right now.

Gran Turismo, as mentioned, but the OST (which has the jazzy tracks) doesn't include great electronica tunes like this.
