Raising Your Score at Donut Plains 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

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 done correctly.

Ramps, Road Humps, and Platforms

Ramps (Donut Plains 1T).jpg
There are enough ramps, road humps, and platforms on T courses. So creating a long combo will be easy. Just make sure to access all the road humps and ramps to maximize the combo you can make. Higher combo count means higher score!


Drifting (Donut Plains 1T).jpg
Do a Mini-Turbo boost while going over road humps. This will add to your combo count and raise your score as well. Mini-Turbos gives you an acceleration so you can get ahead of your opponents.

Curved Platform

Be careful when driving over the curved platform. You might fall on the edges which may cause not to access all the available ramps. This will also put you in a bad position in the race.

Using of Items

Hit! (Donut Plains 1R).jpg
Do not forget that you can throw your items forward or backward to your opponents. Hitting an opponent will also give you certain points and can also give you the chance to get ahead of them. Just remember to save at least one item at your back (like bananas or green shells) to block your opponents' attack from behind.

>>4 I also experienced falling on the RIGHT side of that platform bec I didn't manage to steer correctly. Maybe this is also what he/she meant.

>>1 No, just no. The curved platform is a LIE. The enemies always jump down and get further ahead. The curved platform slows you the f$#k down! F$&K THIS GUIDE

      i hate multiplayer 🤣😂🤣😂, i feel like they match up all wrong. and usually i dont stand a chance. i played tonight and won 1 race. and im expecting thats about the best i will do. i feel like there is some kind of big spacial discrepancy between the way they match the players half the time. im an E , but i get A's and S's and S+'s 🤣😂, then there is the horrible wait time as im watching the coins go by to wait for players to match up 😁, no thanks, thats not fun to me.
