Raising Your Score at RMX Rainbow Road 1R

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 (RMX Rainbow Road 1R).jpg
Always start with a Rocket Start. You can get the highest bonus score possible if done correctly. It will also help you take an early lead in the race.

Drifting

Mini-Turbo Boosts (RMX Rainbow Road 1R).jpg
RMX Rainbow Road 1R has a wide racing track. Take that opportunity to perform Mini or Super Mini-Turbo Boost to speed up and maximize your score.

Waving road

Star Thwomps (RMX Rainbow Road 1R).jpg
The waving road caused by the Star Thwomps will let you perform a jump boost. So make sure to go either on the left or right side of the road when the Star Thwomps hit the rainbow tiles. Also, be careful not to bump into them or you will instantly crash, and might get into a bad position in a race.

1st Gliding Area

1st Gliding Area (RMX Rainbow Road 1R.jpg
You can use the 1st gliding area near the starting line. It is a good way to earn some points early in the race, so keep the combo going after gliding!

2nd & 3rd Gliding Area

2nd and 3rd Gliding Area (RMX Rainbow Road 1R).jpg
You can find the 2nd and 3rd gliding area in the middle of the course. These two gliding areas are relatively close to each other, take advantage of it and make a long combo!

Shortcut

    • team peach has too much drivers on her side. but I think it means there will be a lot of favorite drivers on mario's side.
