It is possible to gain a boost of speed whilst driving. To do this, you must drive closely behind another kart for a certain amount of time. Once you have done so, two wings of air will appear at your sides and you will gain a boost of speed that lasts a few seconds. Ths is supposedly known as the 'butterfly'.
OK go to Royal Raceway on time trial and do it normally, when you get to that jump ramp, right before the second speed up track stuff, use a mushroom. When you land you will not bounce, you will land flat and keep going.
Hope this helps, Swellow386
Tired of starting behind someone and having to go around them. Well if you get a turbo, continue until you are just about to hit the player ahead of you. JUMP! You should have bumped over the player. Now you are way ahead of the others. NOTE: This move takes practice. Get your timings down perfectly.
If you go past the boulders on choco maountain keep jumpin on the walls you will find a spot where you can fall into the black and white relm of death
Go off the big ramp in Royal Raceway to the left, and land on the dirt as far to the left as you can. You will be towed near the finish line.
This is hard at first, but after a while you get used to it.
On the train level if you have a star you can go through the train tunnnel...!
On rainbow road when you first start off there is a hill that goes down.
Right as you go down you can turn and go into space.Now on 1 of the sides you can see another part of the track.This is it..
Do or Die , make the turn and aim it perfect and you can land on the other part of the track!!
You can get 15-20 seconds ahead of the other people! It takes a fair amount of practice but it's worth it.
Select a different tournament to make it harder or easier.
Unlock mirror mode:beat all cups on 50cc,100cc and 150cc.
Unlock new title screen:beat all cups on mirrior mode.
Koopa Troopa Beach shortcuts:
1.Use a mushroom boost up the ramp at jump at the top to land in a cave.
The best shortcut.
2.When you head under the arch go right instead of left and you will be able to drive along a sandbar.
Rainbow Road shortcut:
At the beginning jump over the edge just before you get to the ramp and you will land on a platform later on in the track.It is a great shortcut but hard to pull off.
Kalamari desert traintrack:
You can drive around the traintrack in Kalamari desert,even through the tunnels but they hold no secrets.
So don't waste your time with this unless you want to see what's around.
When you turn on a sharp turn click the button where your right index finger goes.
I think it's the R button, but I am not sure, hit the R button when you turn and it will say ZZZZZZZZ.
Keep doing it but theres a catch you have to move the analog stick side to side when you are doing it!
In Rainbow Road, when a Boo appears it means that a Chain Chomp(shark) is coming.
On the Yoshi Valley track, after all of the split roads come together, there is a semi-strait path, and then a hairpin turn to the left. If you look closely, the road after the turn comes very close to the road before the turn.
You can jump from the road before the turn, to land on the other piece of track. You don't even need a mushroom or star to do this.
Making the jump isn't very hard, but after you jump, make sure to push the break button so that you don't go flying off the other end. This shortcut will give you a significant lead in front of the other players.
If you want to get a boost at the begining of the race.To do so press the A button right before the light turns green.Note:(The timing must be perfect)
On Koopa Troopa beach, instead of going left at that circular rock where all the ramps are, go left and there will be an extra bit of road.
Drive along it, watching out for crabs and you should get into 1st position!
kill your driver
on every level on time trial do the level over 10 minutes.go on mario GP and run into a banana.your kart will explode.you will come last.if you dont like it do a level on time trial in under 10 minutes because if you dont the kill the driver thing will last as long as you keep your TT records.this should boost your skill though.....
