Raising Your Score at Vanilla Lake 1T

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

Rocket Start (Vanilla Lake 1T).jpg
Always start with a Rocket Start. If done correctly, you can get the highest bonus score possible. It will also help you take an early lead in the race.


Ramps (Vanilla Lake 1T).jpg
Since Vanilla Lake 1T is a T course, getting a high score is easy as there are enough ramps throughout the area. Go over ramps as much as possible to create a long combo.


Mini-Turbo (Vanilla Lake 1T).jpg
Make use of the Mini-Turbo Boost to increase your speed and take advantage of your opponents.


Coins (Vanilla Lake 1T).jpg
Collecting coins would be of great help when your combo is about to break. You can also use these coins to buy drivers, karts, and gliders in the Shop.

    • 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.
