All of the Shortcuts
Ok, Let me just wrap up the missed shortcuts...
1.Before the chain chomp, go to turn right and take another path (the chomp can still get you)
2.when you see tunnels when you are going straight, turn right for another shortcut that is identical to the first one.
3.On the turns, there are speed boosters. 4. Above the speed boosters, there is another track, though it's useless.
1.As you are going into the beach area, go left and you will find a shortcut (ONLY USE ON LAP 3 UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR CART TO BE FULL OF WATER).
2.When you are going up the hill near the end with the rolling item boxes, turn left instead of going straight for a double item box.
3.Near the beiggening, turn LEFT on the first turn to go into a tunnel and get a double item box.
1. Always stay on the inside of the track on the turns, just don't get stuck.
Dry Dry Desert:
1.MUSHROOM & STAR SHORTCUTS
A. Where there are towers that are on the ground, they can be used as ramps. b. After the zigzag-like part of the track at the beginning, cut through the dirt to your right with a speed item.
C. Go through the quicksand (star only).
D. Near the end, around the last sharp turn, to your right there will be a billboard. Cut under it.
There's more, but those are the major ones. I'm sure you can find the others.
1. When you go down the first flight of stairs, turn sharply right and go around the pool.
2. The hole in the hallway isn't out of bounds. You can go down there for a double item box.
1.near the end, in the part with the freezies, there is a tower to your left that you can jump behind.
You'll end up back on the normal track. Mario circuit:
1.You can cut through the grass near the first u-turn to the left, with a speed item.
2. Hit a goomba for a mushroom.
1.before the first speed hill, take a mushroom and go to the left of the hill, then use it.
2. You can go above the fake plants during the obsticle course.
1. Hit a bombcar to explode.
2. Hit a shroomcar for a mushroom to pop out.
3. You can go on the arch of the bridge.
4.after the first tunnel, don't turn, (SPEED ITEM REQUIRED) go straight, and use it so that you go over the dirt onto a hill.
5. Right after the start finish, turn right for a secret path and a double block.
1. Bombcar for explosion
2. Shroomcar for mushroom
3. Near the end, go straight instead of turning into traffic to go on a secret path to dodge traffic. It's muddy, so take something fast with you.
4.near the first 3-way, go straight then turn to the right, to go to a secret passage.
1. After the second turn, go straight w/speed item and use it to jump a large gap and slice off a couple of seconds from your timer.
2. After the nose tunnel, you can see a cliff pointing out, use a speed item on it to go into an underground tunnel.
1. While you are in mid-air from the cannon, press up or down to change the angle of your cart.
2. After the turn where there are boulders, HIT THE BRAKES!!! Then go SLOWLY straight, go up the grassy hill a little bit, then do a fast, small u-turn and jump an entire hill. You'll win.
1. Go straight where you normally would have to go left or right around the circle for a speed ramp.
Dino Dino Jungle:
1.after the first cave go to the right instead of straight up on a bridge. You will hit a speed bridge. Make sure you keep control, though.

1.The part where bowser is shooting fireballs, go straight to jump an entire u-turn.
