Rigels track: Shortcut
There is a shortcut where the tunnel full of water is located. When you enter,
there is a waterfall to your left. Go through it and you will be close to first.
Note: If you are going through it for the first time you will find a Gold Brick.
The Berg's track: Shortcut
When you race The Berg, look out for the hidden shortcuts on the track. One is
hidden in the cave.
Rocket Racer track (Xalax, Grand Finale)
It is best to avoid the ramps as you can lose speed and control when you land.
It is better to weave in and out of all the ramps and barriers, keeping up a
On Dino Island, you will meet Sam Sinister. He will use all the power-ups, but
he can also be hurt by your power-ups. If you defeat him, he will give you a
much better engine that will increase your speed. The easiest way to defeat Sam
Sinister is to destroy his car. Do not do this when he is near a Pit-Lane. Also
try knocking him off the large spiral.
On Mars, you will race against Riegel, the head Martian. He drives a giant mech
with amazing shields. He cannot be hurt by power-ups, but he cannot pick them
up. This race is about pure speed. If you defeat him, Riegel will give you a
Martian shield generator to make your car tougher.
In the Arctic, you will be challenged by the Berg, a large ice monster who does
not even need a car. Like Riegel, he cannot pick up weapons, nor is he affected
by them. The Berg can create giant ice stalagmites behind him, though -- drive
carefully. If you defeat him, he will give you super-grip wheels.
Brick Boost power-up
Use the Brick Boost to gain speed at essential times in a race. The Brick Boost
can also be used to correct yourself if you are going into a spin. Also, if you
use a ramp or a jump, hold down [Brick Boost] as you land and to speed off
without bouncing along and losing speed. If it is a close race you may want to
save your Brick Boost for the last lap, where a sudden surge of speed could win
the race for you.
Vehicle add-ons are won by completing bonus games and beating Bosses. Power is
nothing without control, so do not get too many Power add-ons without getting
Create an 18 wheeler
Go to "Build" and place four black or gray pieces then a two or three piece in
the same colors. Add a big or small four square piece that is black. Note: You
should also create someone who looks like a truck driver.
Do not forget to use the Pit-Lanes to repair your vehicle when you are in a
race. This is very important when you are racing on Mars and Xalax where your
car can get damaged a lot.
If another racer is just in front of your car, it is possible to knock them into
a spin. Try bumping one of the corners of their car.
While you are in the air, do not move the steering -- when you land you will go
into a spin. It is best to tap the steering when you land to regain control.
When you take corners, tap the steering as you navigate the corner. If you hold
[Left] or [Right], the car may spin (especially on the Arctic tracks).
At the beginning of a race, you can avoid being pushed around by other racers
using a turbo start. It can give you an extra bit of distance between you and
the other racers. Press [Accelerate] at just the right time. Learn how to judge
when the lights will change to green at the beginning of the race - try counting
and with practice you will get it.
