Aiite, how would you work this map? I am having trouble with the whole platforms deal. I keep getting stuck at the top or getting hit by the top platform while going down.

I never get hit. You either slow down a bit to get down or use N2O to get to the top platform. People usually go to the top for the shortcut

When I go to the top, though, I can't skid. I just crash into the wall. Am I using N2O too late or something?

Do you use it before you fly into the top platform?

Is there another way to get to the top platform?

Yeah, I do. I use it right before the jump.

JUst drift before the jump and after you use your N2O and then you won't crash into the wall. Works for me.

How do you turn in the air? Or are they turning before they jump? It's hard to tell.

They're drifting before they jump, just before.

Basically, you come around the hairpin, boost, start drifting slightly right as soon as you hit the red/yellow warning at the end of the jump, and align yourself with the opening at the far right as you land.

The only thing is, if you fail the boost after drifting off the jump, like I do a lot, you miss the opening and go crashing into the wall on the left

This track is a challenge for me...but by far the coolest

Eh, just have to drift at the right angle...

1. Go as far left on the ramp as possible.

2. Try to setup your drift angle on the ramp, so that you continue the drift but at an angle when you land. Hard to explain, but basicly, if you drift too much, your kart is going to be sideways when you land, and youl just keep sliding to the side and into the wall.

The trick is to drift so your kart catches grip on the landing and sort of slides forward and sideways instead of just sideways.

You can also use the "shot" boost after you land... I mean the short boost you normally get from pressing up after a drift....


Id guess the best angles to drift at from the ramp are like 45-65... Anything over 65 and you wont be sideways enough and you will go straight into a wall, anything below 40 and you end up sideways and smash the wall.

Nos then drift it before leaving the platform. I got better at it after watching people do it over and over again.

After I land from the ramp, i always seem to overdrift. By that, I mean, I can't seem to make my kart stop drifitng, then i crash into the wall sideways. I drift right before jumping off the ramp, and i let go of shift right away, after starting the drift.

Doesn't happen all the time, but pretty often. Suggestions?

Stop your drift before you leave the ramp, you don't need to slide in the air anyway so try to get rotating back toward the right direction just as you hit the lip of the jump. It is a matter of practice, quite a bit... hard to hit the small entrance at full speed at first.
