Tips for Raising Your Score

Rocket Start

Rocket Start (Kalimari Desert 2).jpg
Always start with a Rocket Start! Rocket Start will not just give you a short boost but also helps you take a good position in the race.


Mini-Turbo Boosts (Kalimari Desert 2).jpg
There are long curves in this course. Take advantage of it and perform Mini-Turbo Boosts.

Train and Ramps

Train (Kalimari Desert 2).jpg
Just like going over ramps, bumping the train will not slow you down but will let you perform a jump boost.

1st Lap
