HOT AIR SKYWAY shortcuts - easy beat oxide's time hint for Crash Team Racing


HOT AIR SKYWAY shortcuts - easy beat oxide's time

This track is very long, and it's lanes cross in many points. I'll introduce you into various shortcuts on this track. I CAN TELL YOU THESE WORK BECAUSE I HAVE DONE THEM AT LEAST ONCE.

First shortcut: on the straight part of the track before going through the spiral curves (and next is the high jump) run into a nitro or get hit by a bomb, missile, or anything that makes you bounce when hit. You must be hit while running to the RIGHT side of the track. If done correctly, you'll land on a posterior part of the curve, right before the Turbo Pad.

Second shortcut: this one is easier. On the big jump, after the long curves, go to the RIGHT side of the pad on the right. Press the R1 or L1 button at the same time as you take off the ramp. Go to the right track. It gives you some advantage.

Third shortcut: Now this is difficult to get. I suggest you use the same trick as in the first shortcut, and use a nitro, missile, etc. Try to jump LEFT, before the curve to the part where the two lanes go next to the other one, and go towards the boxes on the jump. If you use your trap correctly, you'll land down, and save some time.

Fourth shortcut: This is the one I use the most, but you need the Super Turbo Pads cheat (at the Main Menu, hold down L1 and R1, and without rel;easing them, press triangle, right, right, circle, left - ARROL), and if the cheat's active, go to the RIGHT side of the pads, the furthest right point as possible, and jump towards the upper track, right where the tunnel leading the finish starts (well it's not a tunnel, but I think you can understand what I mean) Press the R1 or L1 button as furthest as possible after you take off. When you get to the track, as soon as you land, quickly turn LEFT, either by power sliding, or by breaking to make a quick turn. This one trick will save you 7 - 10 seconds! Just using this cheat you'll be able to beat Oxide's time, which is really hard for many of us in other tracks as well.

Extra shortcut: NOTE: THIS WASN'T TESTED, BUT I HEARD OF IT. On the track where the two lanes go next to the other one, use your trap (nitro, missile...) to bounce over the red fence, and you'll land on the other lane. I suggest you do it where the fence ends, because when I use a bomb, it can't get through the fence, until the end of it.

Hope this helps!

Hit by nitro???
We beat oxide's ghost at time trial mode. We can't use power ups at time trial. So how to get nitro..?

Sorry. I can't speak english well.
