Raising Your Score at Kalimari Desert R/T

Position Points and Gimmicks are the Most Important

In order to obtain the most points possible, you should aim for a high position and use items to knock your opponents out of the lead.

Tips for Raising Your Score

Rocket Start

Starting with a Rocket Start will give you the advantage to take an early lead in the race. You can also get the highest bonus score possible if you release your finger at the right timing.


Ultra Mini-Turbo (Kalimari Desert RT).jpg
Drifting will be easy to perform as this course has a lot of curved areas. Do Mini-Turbos to gain speed and take advantage of your opponents. Performing Ultra Mini-Turbo boost will be better as this gives higher points than Mini-Turbos. You can actually perform at least 2 Ultra Mini-Turbos in this course. Before reaching the 2nd set of platforms and before the finish line.

Ramps, Road Humps, and Platforms

Ramps (Kalimari Desert RT).jpg
Make use of the ramps and road humps in this course. Going over them will let you perform a jump boost. Doing this will trigger a combo streak which will help you raise your score.

Using of Items

Items (Kalimari Desert RT).jpg
Do not forget to throw your items forward or backward! Hitting your opponents with an item will gain you certain points. This will also give you the chance to get ahead of them. Just remember to save at least 1 item (like Bananas or Green Shells) to block the opponent's attack from behind. Take the lead and aim for the 1st place for a higher score!

>>8 I'm doing the same thing. But sometimes I have to let go of my finger to release the mini-turbo and extend my combo

My favorite part in this track is on the last part, when you have to drift while doing jump boosts.

      Oh, It's a lucky 7 pipe. When I saw it, I thought it was 4 random drivers. I might pull, Hopefully I get Nabbit, Chef Mario or Luigi (Classic)
