ok, this map doesn't like me so much, I cant get under 1:30.
In this video my time was 1:32:38 but there were several messups. If anyone has any tips on how to get under 1:30 I would be great full.

Pretty good, some of your drifts could prob be more optimized and sometimes you seem to drift off line a little too much (drift slightly too long).

Here's a vid, might help a little:

well jumping down to 60fps from 200+ makes it feel really choppy and is why I missed those two double drifts, but at whats parts are u thinking im drifting to long?

Also, if i try to the do the first part of the map like in that ADO video I always end up fcking up and hitting the wall in the tunnel. But I usually get a time around 1:35 or something so I was surprised to get 1:32 with the messups and I think this vid is my record on this map. =x

Cutting drifts at beggining seem a little slow.
around 20sec you kinda go off line a little,
25sec you seem to drift too far, prob. drifting earlier would help.
Maybe should boost on the straightaway at 31 sec
34 sec seem to start drifting too late
Turn at 44 seconds, maybe try to make it into one long turn instead of two.
Maybe start boost earlier around 115sec-116sec

Overall, however, when I compare your vid to the ADO one I think that optimizing just a little more will make a big difference. It's hard with the marathon pro tho, I'm not that great at it myself. Optimizing is the most basic skill of racing, but at the same time seems to take forever to truly master.

I'm obviously being picky, I think you did real good still.

you cant do the turn at :44 in one turn, not enuf speed, and doing it in 2 turns is part of the plan.

You cant be to picky about it since I didn't start the race intending to beat my record, I've been recording all my races since im working on another crash video, and I found this when going through them today.

nope, doesnt work to well. You end up on the far side of the road, I always do a cutting drift going into the fountain area, drift by the fountain then cut drift leaving the fountain area.

I've managed to get 1:31, now I just gotta chop off two more seconds to get to my goal. :crazy:

honestly my suggestion to you is to sit there on that map in time trial and practice multi drifting around the outside of that circle, its a great place to do so. really though do it for like 30 minutes a day and no lie it'll become like second nature to you in no time and you wont slip up. as for in that video your doing what i used to your starting your 2nd drift too soon and its not giving you both boosts. i found out i did it because i tried multi'ing based on the sound of my kart stopping the first drift when fact is the skid lines stay a little bit after that so your best bet is to play with no sound or it will keep messing you up.

o_O I can multi fine, playing with 150 less fps than normal while recording makes it a little hard tho, and I only tried doing a double drift there was because the guy hit me at the start and fck'd up my first cut drift so I was trying to make up for the lost n2o.

Edit: Also, practicing multi around that fountain can only help so much, because not every turn is the same width as that, some are tighter some are wider.

recorded with fraps probably, and edited it with sony vegas or adobe premiere. I'm almost positive it was done with vegas though, which is also what I use.

Make your drifts optimized. Un-optimized = wasting time.

Messing up your doubles and combos also wasted time (although I realize fraps is an excuse for that).

Lots of your turns can be closer to the wall as well.

the beginning parts are easy but the thing that wastes time alot of messing up at the end like that maze part and stuff because i didn't even get the last nos :(

I have your ghost, and I can barely keep up thru the first half of the track, it rapes me getting off the starting line tho. T.T

right now my record is 1:30:16, I always seem to mess up the very end.
