    • if anyone is interested, i found that the RMX Rainbow Road 2T , in the Hammer Bro Cup is the place to get the nonstop combo for expert challenges. if you play thru, collect your items but dont concentrate on offense, concentrate on defense, just run the course and hit every jump you can and do every turbo boost you can.... no need to use your items. just run right thru the course.
