Jump across space in time trial mode!
Hard- Baby Park (Harder than it looks jumping over the middle!)
All the characters in Mario Kart DS.
On DK Pass, there is a large field of snow to the left about a third of the way through the track. After that there is a large hill with an item box on top - grab that item. No matter what place you're in, it will always be a Super Star or a Triple Mushroom.
I made this trick up and I hope you guys like it!
What you need:
1. Mario Kart DS
2. ANY car (I recommend a car with high speed and good items ranking)
3. Item Boxes
4. A short, easy track (like the Mario Baby Park)
What to do:
1. Make sure you are 8th, or last. You should be quite far away from the 7th person.
2. Then slowly start driving and drive into an Item Box. When you are last, or near last position, you will usually get good items from the Item Boxes!
3. When you get good items (like the Golden Mushroom and Bullet Bill), you then continue driving as usual and keep up with the group. Try to be at least 4th.
4. Then use your special item, like Bullet Bill or the Golden Mushroom, which I HIGHLY recommend. Then you will hopefully be ahead of everyone else!
Please note that sometimes, this trick won't work, depending on the car chosen, the track and the items that come up in the item boxes.
But I did this a couple of times and I won many races!
When your playing in time trials it helps to stay straight if your racing against a big racer like bowser or wario each time you tap left or right to try to straighten out or whatever they move a little bit forward if you wiggle a lot theyll get ahead of you.
If you fall off the track or get stuck underwater for more than a couple moments, Lakitu comes to pull you out and place you on the track again. When he picks you up, wait until you're dropped onto the track again, then press the acceleration at that exact moment and you'll get a turbo boost if you timed it correctly.
If you drift on the inside rooms in the course Twilight house balloon battle, you may experience this. You can infinitely drift, until you well decide to stop. Since it's on balloon battle, you can run into item blocks while drifting and play normally. I discovered this myself, and it's NOT A CHEAT. Since the course includes a lot of turning, it's a perfect course. I find it easier to win since you can dodge and attack at the same time while moving. It may not work for you, because it may take time to learn a more advanced level of this game. Sometimes it's hard and sometimes it's easy, so try it out and improve your Mario Kart!
Here is my grand prix hint
If you have 7 cars unlocked go to any character with the r.o.b.-b.l.s. Car because it has great speed and handling.i used it and beat the rest of the game in a few hours including bathroom breaks etc.
Here is my battle hint
In case you haven't noticed, there are 4 yellow baloons at the upper right corner of the top screen.theese are your extra baloons. Hold down select while you are not moving and a baloon should start inflating. Hold select until the baloon is done inflating but you can't have more than three baloons. In case you run out, you can use a mushroom and run into someone and steal there baloons
P.s. Cheese is better than pancakes
Ok when you aren't moving on like a battle or something, mover the D-pad left and right with R.O.B and it will look like hes dancing
Get an r4i card or action replay.
For r4i download mkds and go on cheats go to always have weapon codes enable the bullet bill.
For action replay you have 2 type the code in.
Go on mario kart and single player.Go to time trials mode and choose a level.First you race on you're own.After the race go to choose another track.go to the track you were just on press a. Then it will come up with nintendos staff ghost and how long it took them for that track.In that race against the ghostkeep pressing are or x for the bullet bill. Eventually you should beat the ghost.
Bloopers always squirt ink at you and it can be very annoying so to get rid of the ink you must be on a racing track which has the rainbow boost or you can have a mushroom, go on to the rainbow boost or use your mushroom and the ink will wash away.
Just a few tips:
Always play on two balloons as the less balloons you have the better your item chance is. Don't play on one as it is too risky. But if you get hit and go down to one balloon collect and item box before you blow a new balloon as then the item will be good. And whatever you do, make the best use of shrooms as you can.

Ever wondered why your kart gets a sudden boost of speed? And your character has a blue sparks flying of their kart?
If these things have happened, you've just performed the Oncoming technique! A move which increases the user's top speed for a short period of time.
You can do this by positioning yourself directly behind another kart while racing, blue sparks will start to build up around your kart and eventually, if you have been following your opponent long enough, you will recieve a sudden boost of speed. Use this technique to overtake your enemies quickly. But beware, others may use this move against you, so always observe racers behind and shake them off when they are tailing you.
On DK pass when you get to the place where the first snowball comes rolling at
You there will be a small mound on your left instead of staying on the road go
On the mound and there will be a lonley item box hit it and you will get a
Star,1 red shell,mushroom,or three mushrooms.
Yes it is true I do it all of the time.
Using an Action Replay, set the item code to lightning. Use lightning on the Ghost. Once done the Ghost will screw around and run into walls/fall off tracks.
If you are annoyed by any corners then if you have a mushroom or star you can go over the corners without slowing down.
If you complete the game with gold on every gp and every class you get a different title screen it has small upright rectangles with the racers pictures rearranged listed from left to right in this order :donkey kong:yoshi:dry bones:browser:toad:luigi:peach:warluigi:daisy:r.o.b:wario:and at the bottom left side of the screen:mario: different eh?

In tick tock clock. Near the finishing line there are two cogs that move. If you go up the one moving towards the finish you get a speed boost. Watch the cogs as they change direction. P.S: The computer dosn't do it so it's easy to make a quick getaway for first at the last second.
