Do 5 Ultra Mini-Turbo Boosts using a driver wearing earrings

Perform a total of 5 Ultra Mini-Turbo boosts using a driver wearing earrings to complete this challenge.

Turn on the Manual Drift in the settings menu or use the Drift Button to perform Ultra Mini-Turbo boosts in a race. After setting up your preferred controls, select a driver wearing earrings and a course with a long race track to do more Ultra Mini-Turbos in a single race. You can also reduce the race's speed to 50cc to make your opponents less aggressive and make the race much easier.

Cause opponents to crash in Frenzy mode

Cause opponents to crash in Frenzy mode.jpg
Hit your opponents while in Frenzy mode to complete this challenge.

Take one of your driver to its favorite course to get 3 item slots and a chance to get into Frenzy mode. Intentionally get to lower place in a race as it will increase your chance of getting into Fenzy and it will be easier for you to hit your opponents if they are ahead of you.

Cause opponents to crash 3 times while gliding

Hit your opponents 3 times while you're gliding to complete this challenge.

Use homing items such as Red Shells and Yoshi's Egg, or Lightning while gliding to hit your opponents easily. Putting a Banana in the gliding panel will also count if it hits as well, but make sure you're already gliding before an opponent crashes!

Earn a total score of 25,000 or higher in the Dry Bowser Cup

Score a total of 25,0000 or more in the Dry Bowser Cup to clear this challenge.

Familiarize the courses on the Dry Bowser Cup (Penguin Tour) to get more score in the race. You should also use drivers that favors them to get a chance to go into Frenzy mode. And lastly, upgrade the drivers, karts, and gliders you're going to use to earn a higher score!

Break 5 snow blocks

Snow Block (Time Trial Walkthrough.jpg
Finish the challenge by breaking a total of 5 snow blocks in races.

Look for cube-shaped snow on the course and break them. You can use your kart and mow over the snow blocks, or you can use items like Green Shells, Super Horn, and Bob-ombs to destroy them.
