______________________________________________________________________________
Basic Single Button Functions
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

________
A Button - The A button is used as the confrimation button in the game menus,
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯   but more importantly, as the Acceleration button when racing.
________
B Button - The B Button us used in menus as the back, or cancel button.
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯   In races, it is used to slam on the brakes of your kart.
_____
D-Pad - You use the D-pad to navigate menus, and steer your kart when racing.
¯¯¯¯¯
_____________________
Right Shoulder Button - While racing, hit the Right shoulder button to jump.
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯   While in the air, turn left or right to being a
                        powerslide.
                        You'll need to master the powerslide if you want to be
                        the best racer you can be.
____________________
Left Shoulder Button - The left shoulder button is used to fire/use the
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯   item/weapon you have.
                       You can hold the Left Shoulder button when you have a
                       banana, single green or single red shell to hold it
                       behind your kart (which will act as a sheild) and while
                       holding an item you can pick up another.
_____
Start - Start acts like like the A button in game menus, and will pause the
¯¯¯¯¯   game when racing.
______
Select - Select honks the horn of your kart when racing. Each kart has a
¯¯¯¯¯¯   different sounding horn.

______________________________________________________________________________
Advanced Controls
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

_________
Spin Turn - This is pretty much for mucking around in multiplayer, or if you
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯   run into a problem while racing (literally).

            Hold A and B and either left or right on the D-pad. Your kart will
            spin around very fast on the spot. You can turn 360 degrees in
            about a second. If you hit a wall, and need to turn around 180
            degrees in a hurry, then by all means use the spin turn, but
            you'll loose a lot of time, just from making the mistake or not
            being an elite driver >:P

________________________
Special Weapon Functions - Just hitting the fire button will use/fire the
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯   weapon's normal mode of fire. But some weapons have
                           a second function, and here I list them:

         __________________
         Single Green Shell - If you hold down on the d-pad and fire a green
         ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯   shell, it will fire directly behind you, instead
                              of infront of you.

           ________________
           Single Red Shell - If you hold down on the d-pad and fire a red
           ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯   shell, it will stop exactly where you shot it,
                              and wait for the next kart to pass it, when this
                              happens, it will home in on them. Very sneaky.

                     ______
                     Banana - Hold up/forward on the d-pad when you have a
                     ¯¯¯¯¯¯   banana and you'll fire it infront of you,
                              instead of dropping it behind you.

          _________________
          Blue Spiked Shell - Hold down and fire the blue spiked shell/spiny
          ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯   shell and it will wait where you left it (like a
                              red shell) and when the leader of the race comes
                              past it next, it will chase after them.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
The idea of this section, is to baby you through the way that Mario Kart:
Super Circuit works.

______________________________________________________________________________
The "cc" Classes
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
____
50cc - Think of this as your training for the "real" game. The very first time
¯¯¯¯   I played my copy of Mario Kart: Super Circuit I went to the 50cc
       mushroom cup, and my places were three 1st's and one 2nd. This mode
       will help you to get to know the tracks a bit better, and give you a
       good feel for the game.

       If you manage to have problems with 50cc mode.... and you're old enough
       to read this then perhaps playing games isn't your ideal recreational
       activity.

_____
100cc - In 100cc, at first you can run into some problems, because at this
¯¯¯¯¯   stage, you still won't have mastered the controls of the game, or
        know the tracks off by heart. 100cc though, shouldn't give you too
        hard of a time.

        By 100cc, you'll be getting to know tracks better, and figuring out
        small strategies and so on that can only be discovered through
        practice.

_____
150cc - This is where it's at! Races will be fast, intense and have the edge
¯¯¯¯¯   of your seat right through. By 150cc, you will know the tracks well,
        and by the time you get a gold trophy on a cup, you'll know the tracks
        like the back of your hand.

        Expect very tough races on 150cc.

Powersliding
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Mastering the powerslide is an almost essential skill to have, if you want to
have any chance at getting gold trophies on all of the 150cc cups.

How to perform: When approaching a corner, move to the inside of it. As the
                corner starts to bend, tap the Right shoulder button, and the
                direction the corner turns (left for left, right for right).
                You will skid around the corner very nicely, and go from the
                inside of the corner, towards the outside, but hopefully
                you'll remain on the road.

                Sometimes (on the sharper turns) you can get a speed boost at
                the end of the turn, as long as you didn't let off the gas too
                much, or hit the brakes during the turn.

______________________________________________________________________________
Coins
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
You'll find coins, specially placed in small, or large groups around every
single track in the game.

Coins have two pusposes. The first, and least important, is the fact that if
you are run into with 0 coins, you WILL spin out. So picking up coins creates
a buffer against being rammed, and spun out that way.

The second, and more important purpose of collecting coins, is that the more
coins you collect, the faster you will race, which really pays off in the
scheme of things.

______________________________________________________________________________
Drifting
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
This is a great way to overtake karts that are reasonably close infront of
you.

All you have to do, when another racer is infront of you, is line your kart up
dirrctly behind theirs, and after 1 or 2 seconds, your kart will get a slight
boost of speed, which will enable you to pull out to one side and overtake the
racer who was ahead of you.

      Nintendo Description: "Princess Peach is one of the speediest drivers on
                             the Super Circuit, but she has to be careful to
                             avoid contact with other karts. Once small bump
                             and she can be knocked off the track."

                 Pyro says: Peach is my number one choice of racers, in terms
                            of who is "best" to race with for me.
                            Peach is light, and very fast and she has great
                            handling.
                            Peach can get pushed around a bit, but she isn't
                            as easily bullied as Toad.
                            For a beginner, and even an expert, Peach is a
                            great character to race with.

               Jarred says: When the Princess isn't being held captive by
                            Bowser she must practise her go kart driving.
                            This time around she is quite good driver having
                            some of the best acceleration and sharpest
                            handling in the game. But being the petit princess
                            she is, she gets pushed around quite a bit by
                            the other racers. Being light in weight has its
                            advantages though, like not loosing too much
                            speed going of the track.

      Nintendo Description: "Toad is a speed demon, but his small size makes
                             him vunerable to Bowser and DK's bullying ways.
                             Try not to bump into other drivers while
                             controlling the fun guy."

                 Pyro says: Toad is also very fast, and handles very well. The
                            problem however, is that being so damn small, he
                            is pushed around very easily (see: knocked off the
                            track when just about anyone touches him).
                            I don't recommend toad, especially in the later
                            difficulty classes, as there is a lot of ramming
                            and the last thing you want is to be pushed around
                            like a feather on wheels.

               Jarred says: Toad is my favourite lightweight. His top-notch
                            acceleration gives you a nice start off the
                            starting line and a quick boost back into the race
                            just incase you sink or a fall off the edge of the
                            course. The little guy also has great handling to
                            take care of those tight turns. So you say, "This
                            guy sounds great! What more could you want?" Just
                            a bit more fat I'm afraid. This guy gets knocked
                            around the track quite easily. So watchout for the
                            likes of Bowser and the other heavies if you
                            decide to use him.

  '-----------------'

      Nintendo Description: "Yoshi is a bit heavier than Toad and Peach, but
                             slightly slower as well. If you're willing to
                             sacrifice a little speed for increased stability,
                             give the dino a go."

                 Pyro says: I was really hoping Yoshi would be the way peach
                            is (but not knocked around quite so easily).
                            Unfortunately, yoshi handles worse than peach and
                            toad, and is slower as well.
                            Yoshi always seems to be my character of choice in
                            Mario games, and usually seems to be the best for
                            me as well. This time though, good old Yoshi
                            doesn't quite cut it.

               Jarred says: Everybody's favourite green dinosaur is back. He
                            is a bit slower than the other lightweights and
                            his handling is a bit looser due to him being a
                            bit heavier. Still, if you don't want to bumped
                            around like Peach and Toad do against the heavier
                            racers but still want to have that lightweights
                            touch to it, then give Yoshi a whirl.

      Nintendo Description: "Mario is a well-balanced driver with equal Speed
                             and Weight attributes. He's a great choice for
                             beginning drivers looking to get a feel for the
                             road."

                 Pyro says: Mario will probably the first character a lot of
                            people who play MK:SC choose.
                            Mario is well rounded. He is not as fast as any of
                            the lightweihts, nor does he handle as well.
                            Personally, I can't see too much point in using
                            Mario, unless you don't want to be pushed around
                            as much as the lightweights, but want better
                            handling, and acceleration than the heavyweights.

               Jarred says: He's rescued Princess's, partyed, smashed a few
                            fellow Nintendo characters, and even plays both
                            golf and tennis. But most importantly (in this
                            game anyway), he can drive a go kart. Quite well
                            too. His speed and handling are balanced and
                            average. People who are new to Mario Kart might
                            want to choose Mario because he isn't slow in
                            acceleration like the heavyweights and he isn't
                            knocked around the track like a lightweight.

      Nintendo Description: "Like his brother, Luigi is a well-rounded driver.
                             He has average speed and weight, which makes his
                             kart very easy to keep under control."

                 Pyro says: Luigi is slimmer than his brother, and this is
                            reflected in the way he drives. Luigi handles a
                            bit better than Mario, and he has a bit more
                            speed, but he is also pushed around a bit easier
                            than Mario.

               Jarred says: He's rescued Princess's, partyed, smashed a few
                            fellow Nintendo characters, done some ghost
                            busting and even plays both golf and tennis. But
                            most importantly (in this game anyway), he can
                            drive a go kart. WAIT A MINUTE! That looked a bit
                            familiar. As you can tell, Luigi is like his
                            brother, Mario, and just like Mario, his stats
                            are fairly even. His turning seems to be better
                            than Mario's but gets bumped around more.

      Nintendo Description: "Adventurer, rapper and master driver. Is there
                             anything that Donkey Kong can't do? DK is heavy
                             enough to avoid being pushed around, but he still
                             has decent speed."

                 Pyro says: Ah, Donkey Kong. Everybody loves Donkey Kong.
                            Right?
                            Just by looking at DK it is very obvious that he's
                            one big and heavy ape. Nobody pushes DK around.
                            DK handles fairly slippery, and I certainly don't
                            recommend him for the beginner. While his top
                            speed is nice, he takes a fair while to get going,
                            and it takes a skilled player to be able to keep
                            him on the road.
                            If you're sick of being pushed around, and are
                            getting to be quite good at MK:SC then DK might
                            just be your ape. Not for beginners!

               Jarred says: Donkey Kong, king of the swing, is back for more
                            racing with Mario and the gang. Like the previous
                            times, Donkey Kong handling isn't very sharp but
                            he has the best for a heaveyweight.
                            Also it takes him abit longer to get started, but
                            once he gets going he can certainly drive fast!
                            DK is a fairly heavy guy (most gorillas are you
                            know) so he can't knocked around much.

                 Pyro says: The FAT, evil relative of Mario and Luigi. Wario
                            handles fairly similar to DK (low acceleration,
                            relatively poor handling, and a decent top speed).
                            Again, I don't recommend Wario, at least not for

                            If however you have a craving to race as an evil
                            character, it's a choice between Wario and Bowser.

               Jarred says: The imfamous Wario is described as "True heavy
                            power", and he sure is. His handling isn't as
                            good as Donkey Kong's and he has a poor
acceleration,
                            but has a very nice top speed. Try not to steer
                            this guy off the track much, he looses alot of
speed.

      Nintendo Description: "With road rage pumping through his veins, Bowser
                             is the biggest brute on the track. It's
                             impossible to push him around, but his weighty
                             shell makes his acceleration suffer.

                 Pyro says: It would take a damn earthquake to move the
                            long-time nemesis of Mario, Bowser.
                            Bowser, is fat, heavy and sloooooooooooow.
                            Every track seems like you're karting on ice when
                            you're driving with bowser. Sticking to the track
                            can be a painful task.
                            Of course he's not all bad (no pun intended).
                            In Time Trail mode, as long as you are a great
                            driver, Bowser can be a good idea to use, as his
                            top speed (if you can ever get to it) is pretty
                            high.

               Jarred says: Bowser is the biggest, baddest racer on the
                            circuit. There is nobody faster than him. The sad
                            thing is that it can be a bit tricky reaching this
                            top speed. His acceleration and handling is quite
                            poor.
                            Too make things worse for the big fella is his
                            weight. Sure, know body can knock him around but
                            once those tires are off the track, they will want
                            to sink straight into the grass and sand.

Green Shell
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
            Description: Green shells are your classic projectile weapon.
                         The direction you shoot them is the direction they
                         go.
                         If a shell misses someone, it will continue bouncing
                         around the place until it does hit someone.

                         You can hold shells behind your kart to make a shield
                         against attack from behind.
                         If you hold down on the d-pad when you shoot a single
                         green shell it will fire directly behind you, instead
                         of going forward.

___________________
Triple Green Shells
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
            Description: When you hit fire after picking up the triple green
                         shells they will begin rotating around your vehicle,
                         creating a rotating shield which, 9 times out of 10
                         will protect from from attacks from all directions.

                         Triple green shells are fired one at a time, and
                         cannot be fired backwards.

_________
Red Shell
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
            Description: Red shels are Mario Kart's equivalent of a homing
                         missile.
                         When fired in the general direction of another racer,
                         the red shell will trace their vehicle and always hit
                         them from behind.

                         You can hold single red shells behind you, to act
                         like a shield, just like green shells.
                         If you hold down on the d-pad and fire a red shell it
                         will remain exactly where you fired it, and will home
                         in on the next racer to approach it.

Triple Red Shells
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
            Description: When you hit fire after picking up the triple red
                         shells, just like the triple green shells, they will
                         begin rotating around your vehicle, creating a
                         rotating shield which, 9 times out of 10 will protect
                         from from attacks from all directions.

                         Triple red shells are fired one at a time, and
                         cannot be fired while holding down to make them
                         remain where you shot them until a racer comes past.
                         They act just like single red shells, and chase after
                         whoever you aimed them at.

Blue Spiked Shell
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
            Description: Most of the time, you'll only ever find this sucker
                         when you are in, or very close to last place, and
                         even then it is a rarity.
                         Of course, there is a reason it is so rare, see, when
                         you fire the spiked blue shell (also known as Spiny
                         Shell), it homes in on the racer who is in 1st
                         position, but not only does it attack them, but it
                         crashes into every kart along its way.

                         Of course, you can hold fire, and the blue spiked
                         shell will remain behind your kart, just like a red
                         or green shell, or a banana would, and anyone who
                         crashes into it will spin out, and the good thing
                         is that as well as providing a shield, and a weapon,
                         it will remain behind you, no matter how many times
                         karts, or weapons hit it.

                         If you hold down and fire the blue spiked shell, it
                         will remain where you left it behind your kart, and
                         when the player in first place comes past it next,
                         just like the red shell's secondary mode, it will
                         chase after them. Personally, I think using the
                         normal method is more favourable, because it hits
                         everyone ahead of you, rather than just the person in
                         1st place.

____
Star
¯¯¯¯
            Description: Probably one of the more useful items to get.
                         The star gives you temporary invincibility, it also
                         increases your speed, and if anyone else touches you
                         while you're using a star, they will spin out just as
                         if you shot a shell at them.
                         The further back in the pack you are, the more likely
                         you are to get a star.

______
Banana
¯¯¯¯¯¯
            Description: What weapon based racing game would be complete with
                         the good old equivalent of an oil slick?

                         Just hitting the fire button when you've got a banana
                         will cause it to drop on the ground behind you, and
                         the next racer to ride over it will skid, and spin
                         out.

                         The secondary mode of fire for the banana, has almost
                         two functions.
                         If you hold forward when you shoot a banana, it will
                         shoot out and up and land a little distance infront
                         of you. The use for this? One you can throw it in the
                         path of oncomming racers, and two, you can throw it
                         at racers. If you hit them, they'll spin out too.

                         One interesting thing you might notice, is that
                         getting a banana while in last place is nigh
                         impossible.

___
Boo
¯¯¯
            Description: Besides the blue shell, Boos are probably the rarest
                         item in the game.

                         Usually, you'll pick up a Boo when in the middle, to
                         the back of the pack. However, that's not to say that
                         you can't get them while in first place, they are
                         just more common when you're coming worse in the
                         race.

                         Use a boo, and you will steal an item from another
                         racer. Also, you'll become invisible, and while
                         invisible, you'll also be immune from attacks
                         from other races.

                         On top of that, using a Boo will attack the racer in
                         1st position, by both slowing them down for a while,
                         and taking coins from them.

________
Mushroom
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
            Description: Mushrooms just give you a one second speed boost.

                         You have to be careful using mushrooms, especially
                         near corners, or you could end up with disasterous
                         results.

_________
Lightning
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
            Description: Lightning is most commonly found when you're in the
                         back half of the pack.

                         Fire ligning, and the background of the level you're
                         in will flash, just as if lightning has stuck, and
                         all of the racers who aren't invincible, or using a
                         Boo will be zapped, they will then by shrunk, which
                         causes them to move much slower, and if you run into
                         someone who is small they will be spun out.

_____
Coins
¯¯¯¯¯
            Description: These, you'll find scattered about every track you
                         race in. For each coin you collect, you'll gain a
                         tiny amount of top speed.
                         Coins also act as a buffer against being spun out
                         when another racer runs into you.
                         Instead of spinning out, you'll just drop a coin.

                         Coins collected are cumulative for each cup, and the
                         game keeps track of how many coins you collected in
                         total at the end of each cup.

________
Item Box
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
            Description: These are what you get items from. The sides of the
                         box rotate quickly in colour, going from red, yellow,
                         orange, blue and green.

                         Drive through an item box to pick up an item duh :P
                         Then you'll be given an almost random weapon.

Peach Circuit
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
The first track in the entire game. This is where 99% of people's first memory
of the game will be.

This course is geared towards the beginner, and rightfully so.  Nice soft, and
easy turns. It will help you come to grips with the way the game works, and
help you get used to handling your kart.
______________________________________________________________________________
Shy Guy Beach
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
I'd hate to be the mechanic who have to clean the sand out of every last nook
and cranny of the karts after a race along Shy Guy Beach.
This is your first introduction to a "non-course", where instead of racing on
a track, you race on another surface.

You'll drive around a series of islands, linked by shallow water.
Stray too far off course and into the deep water and you'll sink as fast as
if you were in a heavy go-kart or something...

The course is pretty easy, providing you can stick to the sand, and not end
up on the bottom of the sea bed.

______________________________________________________________________________
Riverside Park
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Not to sound repetitive...but this is your first taste of slippery track.
You race on dirt, which at times will seem a bit much for the novice driver.
Until you've come to grips a bit more with turning, you will find it hard to
stick to the track, and stay off the grass.

You can royally **** up and end up in water, if you really go off course, but
once you've played it through a couple of times, Riverside Park will seem
like a piece of cake...(well, it IS a piece of cake).

______________________________________________________________________________
Bowser Castle 1
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
This course couldn't be easier...well, not much easier. At first you may have
some problems with the right angle turns, but once you've got them down pat
the first Bowser Castle track will be a breeze.

Oh, and try to avoid the thwomps that are waiting to make go-kart pancakes.

Mario Circuit
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Mario Circuit will introduce you to some slightly more difficult turns, but
isn't going to give to too much trouble.

Being a specifically designed go-kart circuit, you'd have to say Mario
Circuit has been designed for the amature racer.

Keep an eye out for the boost pad, that is found on a piece of track that
branches off to the left of the track, towards the very end of the race.

______________________________________________________________________________
Boo Lake
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Set at night, along an eerie dark wooden track, raised high above a dark
valley, Boo Lake will fill your pants with poo.

Ok, maybe not.

This track is fairly basic, but until you know it's layout, may give you
some minor trouble.

If you think this is bad, you are in for one hell of a shock.

______________________________________________________________________________
Cheese Land
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Cheese Land is set in a galaxy far far away... The entire planet is made out
of mountainous piles of cheese, with plenty of huge craters, and the
occasional flat plain.

I presume you've all raced on cheese before, so I don't need to tell you how
slippery it is, right?
As well as the slippery track, you have to watch out for blue mice, who walk
back and fourth across the track, and will cause you to spin out if you hit
one of them.

Cheese land is of average difficulty, but will give the beginner some trouble.
______________________________________________________________________________
Bowser Castle 2
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Bowser Castle 2 is more like it. There's planty of lava hopping, as well as
turns that can be difficult at first. As well as those, there are a couple of
thwomps to flatten you if you are in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Still nothing too hard, but I'm sure this track will be up there with one of
the harder track you'll have encountered to this point.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Did you know rain makes roads slippery? Well did you also know that it makes
even more slippery puddles?

Oh, good then. That means you know how Luigi Circuit will be. At first I had a
bit of trouble with Luigi Circuit, but once I knew the layout of the track,
and how to powersilde properly I was fine.

______________________________________________________________________________
Sky Garden
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
On this track you race along a track made of clouds, floating high above the
earth. It goes without saying that you don't want to fall off the track. Sky
garden is slightly slippery, but overall a very easy track. Catchy music too :)

______________________________________________________________________________
Cheep-Cheep Island
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Named after the giant fish that swims in the waters of this peaceful island,
Cheep-Cheep is quite a nice track.

It's quite easy to end up in the deep water that surrounds most of the island
if you're not careful, as the slippery track, along with the sometimes sharp
turns are designed to put you in the drink, if not navigated preperly.

Overall however, Cheep-Cheep Island is easy.
______________________________________________________________________________
Sunset Wilds
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Sunset wilds is set through three stages of sunset (the sunset progressed each
lap you complete), the track looks great. Sunset Wilds is in the wild west,
out in desert area. You can see beautiful rock formations in the distance, and
so on.

The track is slippery, as you are racing on dirt. There is one section with a
huge line of boost pads, which will give you an insane kick of speed, but
you'll have to watch out for the Shy Guy teepees, which, if driven into will
end up loosing you quite a few coins, and a bit of time as well.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Snow Land is probably the most slippery track in the game. You race on a
track of ice, with thick snow lining the outside of the track.
Come off the track and into the snow and you'll slow down quite a lot.

There are also huge puddles along parts of the track, which are so deep your
entire kart can become submerged in them.

Snow Land is fairly difficult, and until you know the track well, I'm sure you
will have some difficulty with it.

______________________________________________________________________________
Ribbon Road
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
The track is lined with giftwrapped boxes, and the actual track itself is made
of red ribbon.

What's so special about this ribbon is the fact that it is super grippy.
This means you'll be able to take sharp turns with ease.

Ribbon road quite an easy track...escpecially with the sticky track, not the
mention the insane shortcut.

______________________________________________________________________________
Yoshi Desert
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Set in the Yoshi version of Egypt, Yoshi Desert is how one would expect it to
be. There are huge pyramids in the distance, as well as a Yoshi sphinx :P

You race on sand, and as you can figure out, it is more slippery than most
tracks. If you happen to come off the track, you'll need to watch out for the
quicksand whirlpools...

Yoshi Desert isn't all that hard, as by this stage in the game you should
probably have gotten the hang of powersliding on slippery surfaces anyway.

______________________________________________________________________________
Bowser Castle 3
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Bowser Castle 3 has quite a number of thwomps, as well as it's fair share of
90 degree turns.

Again, nothing all that hard once you know the track...

Lakeside Park
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Slippery track + lots of turns, big, small, tight and sharp. Lakeside park
will take a bit of practice before you are winning races consistantly
(especially on 150cc), and so it should. The final normal cup in the game
shouldn't be easy at all.

______________________________________________________________________________
Broken Pier
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
There are plenty of places to fall of the track that is broken pier. Though as
is the case with most track, once you've driven through it a few times, and
got to know the layout of the track, you shouldn't have too hard of a time
winning races consistantly.

There are a lot of boos that linger around the place, and every so often one
of them might hover above you, and slow you down.

______________________________________________________________________________
Bowser Castle 4
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
The final Bowser Caslte in the normal track cups, Bowser Castle 4 is no
pushover.

There are tight, thin turns, lots of areas where you can, at any moment end up
in the toasty warm lava, as well as obstacles. But as always, with practice
this track will seem easier, and easier.

______________________________________________________________________________
Rainbow Road
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
I was expecting a Rainbow Road track, and thankfully I got what I wanted.
Complete with transperent track, and victory-ish music, Rainbow Road is the
final race, in the final cup in the normal track races.

The track is reasonably easy, providing you don't choke too much going around
some of the tighter corners.

Rainbow Road also leaves you open to quite a few, large shortcuts if you use
your head (or this FAQ :P).

Enjoy your last normal track race... and make the best of it.

This track is so easy it hurts...but I suppose, it's just the "intro track"
to the snes tracks, so that can be justified I guess :P

Apart from a sever lack of anything past very basic turns, and no obsticles
to get in your way, and the fact that the track itself is rather wide, this
very short track is extremely easy and shouldn't be any trouble for you at
all.

______________________________________________________________________________
Donut Plains 1
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Good, fun riverside racing.

There are some nice turns on this track. You will notice that the track itself
is actually dirt, which will take away a good chunk of your grip. You'll need
to know how to take big, slippery turns if you want to be sucessful on Donut
Plains 1.

It's a pity that the only bridge in the level has wall on it's sides, so you
can't fall into the water, but this is still an early track in the scheme of
things.

______________________________________________________________________________
Ghost Valley 1
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Another faily straigh forward track, that is pretty easy.

All turns are 90 degrees, and have walls to stop you falling off the edge of
the wooden pier you are on, and into the cold water below.

There is a tiny jump over a gap in the track at one point, but with a jump
before it, you should have no trouble. Easy stuff.

______________________________________________________________________________
Bowser Castle 1
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Again, this is an easy, easy track.

All turns are 90 degrees, and the entire track has walls that stop you from
going off course and falling into the toasty warm :P lava.

Of course there is the risk of falling into the lava if you manage to jump
over on of the jumps before a gap in the track (with lava below). But in all
honsety, that isn't very likely to happen.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Mario Circuit 2 is thankfully a bit more difficult than the first Mario
Circuit.

There are some snaking twists and turns in the track, and a crossed over
section of track that you'll get to jump over. If you can stick to the track
through the turns, and not end up on the sand too much then you'll be fine.

______________________________________________________________________________
Choco Island 1
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
I'm not too fond of the Choco Island tracks..though the first Choco Island
track isn't too bad.

The track is made up slippery dirt (well, chocolate actually), and if you
happen to skid off the road you'll be greeted by some very slow, boggy dark
chocolate. This track isn't all that hard, but it can be easy to stuff up and
skid off the track if you're not careful.

______________________________________________________________________________
Ghost Valley 2
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
This is the second ghost valley track, and is still reasonably easy. Most of
the corners have walls, and the few that don't aren't likely to cause you too
much frustration.

There are one or two holes that come in from the side of the track which
you'll have to aviod falling into, but besides that, this track is pretty
simple.

______________________________________________________________________________
Donut Plains 2
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
As expected, Donut Plains 2 progresses in difficulty over the first Donut
Plains track.

Sticking to the slippery track can be a pain at times, if you're not careful,
because you'll have to take each turn with skill.

I wouldn't say this track is quite hard, but it's certainly not an easy one.

Bowser Castle 2

This isn't exactly easy, or hard.

There are a quite a few small jumps over lava, and some tight turns, but
winning on this track isn't difficult. As long as you can navigate the turns
(with the assistance of powerslide turns) you'll have everything under control.

______________________________________________________________________________
Mario Circuit 3
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
I'd have to say this track is of about average difficulty.

There are heaps of twists, turns and bends in Mario Circuit 3, and straights
are a rarity.

As long as you have your powersliding down pat, then you should be fine. As is
the case with all of the Mario Circuits, there is sand on the outside of the
track, so if you come off the road, expect to pay the consequences.

______________________________________________________________________________
Koopa Beach 1
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
This course is made up mostly of a series of relatively thin islands, and one
wide island with water lillys dividing the path into two. With shallow waters
inbetween the gaps in islands, and deep water if you stray a little off course
to the left or right.

The course itself is both short, and easy. I doubt you'll run into any
problems on Koopa Beach 1.
______________________________________________________________________________
Choco Island 2
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
This track will give a lot of people some degree of trouble.

With Choco Island 2 returns the slippery track, and the dark chocolate that
lies around the outside of the track, which will slow you done a hell of a lot
of you slip out onto it.

The thing that makes Choco Island 2 as difficult as it is, is the slippery
track, and the stuff around the outside which will slow you right down if you
drive on it. There is one area in the track with a tight turn that leads into
a very thin area of the track. It is VERY easy to slid off the road here, and
as a result slow down a lot.

With a bit of practice Chocho Island 2 will seem a lot easier, but will still
be a pain in the arse.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Despite the fact that you're racing on ice, Vanilla Lake 1 is fairly simple.
Vanilla Lake 1 is a faily short, and basic track. It's pretty much a circular
square...*cough*

Yes the track is slippery because it's ice, and yes, if you run into the snow
on the outside of the track (and in some cases on small parts of the track)
you will slow down, but staying on the track actually isn't all that hard.
There are little square blocks of ice in patches on the track as well, and if
you run into the they stop you, but break, so next time they won't be there.
Of course you can navigate through them without touching a single one.
Vanilla Lake 1 is a nice, easy into to the Star Cup.

______________________________________________________________________________
Bowser Castle 3
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
You shouldn't have too much difficulty with Bowser Caslte 3 once you know
where all of the 'difficult at first' turns are, and how to navigate them.
There are plenty of 90 degree turns, and lots of lava jumping, but overall the
track shouldn't prove to be anything more than average in difficulty.

______________________________________________________________________________
Mario Circuit 4
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
This is more like it. Not too hard, but a very good challenge.
There are loads of big, but sharp turns, as well as some thin spots in the
track.

You'll probably have to run through Mario Circuit a few times before you know
how to navigate all of the turns flawlessly, and avoid coming off into the
sand.

This is my kind of track, difficulty wise at least.

______________________________________________________________________________
Donut Plains 3
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
There are a nice lot of big turns to be had on the slippery dirt track, some
of which lead out onto bridges which have no walls to stop you falling into
the water (yay!). The two turn that lead out onto the bridges are the hardest
on the track, as it's very easy to end up in the drink.

As always, with practice, the difficulty of this track will be considerably
reduced, but that won't stop you from screwing up occasionaly ;)

Once you know your way around Koopa Bach 2, you'll find it to be pretty
straight forward.

For the most part, you race around an island, with water out to your right,
and water lillys to your left.

At one stage you race out across an area of shallow water, with pools of deep
water dotting the area. If you know what you're doing, avioding these deep
areas of water will be easy however.

______________________________________________________________________________
Ghost Valley 3
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
There are lots of turns in the track, most of which don't have rails to stop
you from sliding off the edge of the peir you race on.

As well as the tricky turns, there are loads of big holes in the track, which
are ALWAYS right in your path. Hell, there are even jumps that lead straight
into them.

This, at least for me is the track that makes Special Cup (150cc) so hard.
Even with loads of practice, I still have a hard time with this. And don't
even get me started on being bumped off the track, or into a hole by another
racer.

Vanilla Lake 2
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Vanilla Lake 2 is certianly more difficult than the first, but is by no means
hard.

You still race on slippery ice, there is still thick snow on the outside of
the tracks, there are still the blocks of ice clustered together around the
track, but one thing you'll notcie more is that you race around a giant icy
cold lake, which has many star shaped corners, which you can risk jumping over
for extra time, but if you fall in you'll have a cold time.

Overall Vanilla Lake 2 isn't terribly difficult.

______________________________________________________________________________
Rainbow Road
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
The final track in the game. Rainbow road can be intimidating at first, as the
entire track has no safety rails on the outside of it, so one false move and
you're floating out in space. But it really isn't all that hard.

All turns are 90 degrees, and reasonably wide. There is one split in the track
which has a hole in the middle of it, but other than that it's smooth sailing
(or should that be karting) all the way.
Very "interesting" music too...

                                 RANKINGS

______________________________________________________________________________
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

There is some degree of how exactly the rankings in Mario Kart: Super Circuit
work, and how exactly you can achieve each of them.
I'll try to help you understand how they work, and how easy/hard it it to
achieve each of them.

______________________________________________________________________________
How to get higher rankings
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Basically to get ranking you need to follow a few little things carefully.

* You will need to have consistantly good (low time) laps and overall race
times
for each of the 4 races in each cup.

* Don't use the brake button. It slows you down too much.

* Try and collect as many coins as you can. They increase your speed, giving
you some faster lap times. Don't go out of your way to get them though if it
might slow you down trying to get them.

* Don't use any items at all. The first item you get is what you stick with
until the race is over. So keep you finger off the L button if you want those
triple stars.

* You can use one or two 'try again's' if you need to, but doesn't use them all
up. I found that after I used up all three, I couldn't get the triple star
rank,
no matter how good I raced.

Descriptions
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
_
E - E is the worst rank you can possibly get. No matter if you were this close
¯   *makes tiny gap between two fingers on one of his hands* to getting a D
    or no bloody where near it. If you finish a cup, the worst you can
    possibly get is an E.
_
D - A D is pretty bad. It reminds me of most of the grades I get in school >:P
¯   D obviously is higher than an E, but you really shouldn't be proud of
    getting a D, and infact I'd be ashamed if I were you! :P
_
C - C is still a faily poor rank to get. With little real effort, and not too
¯   many terrible lap times, you should be able to get a C.
_
B - Still nothing to gloat about, a B does however require a little skill to
¯   be awarded. You can stil have faily average lap and race times and walk
    away with a B.
_
A - When you're still new to MK:SC, I suppose an A can be difficult to achieve.
¯   But as long as you have decent lap and race times, you'll probably be able
    to pick up an A ranking with relative ease.
_
* - Now we're talking. Of course, getting an star is not what I'd call hard.
But
¯   it certainly isn't easy either. You'll need good lap and race times, and
    by this stage, you'll probably want to be getting really good at the game
    if you're looking to get a star ranking.
__
** - This is where things start to get hard. To get a double star ranking,
¯¯   you'll  need great and consistant lap and race times. Double star might
     seem impossible at first, but let me tell you that eventually getting them
     won't be all too hard. It's not going to be easy, don't get me wrong, but
     with  skill, and a tiny bit of luck you shouldn't find it too difficult to
     get a double star ranking.
___
*** - The ultimate goal. The pinnacle of Mario Kart perfection. You will be
¯¯¯   spending months and months hard at work if you want triple star rankings
      on every level in the game.
      You'll need near perfect lap and race times, and a hell of a lot of
      skill.

Shy Guy Beach
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Method: From the start of the race, drive forward, and when you're coming to
        the end of the second island, turn left (just after the two coconut
        trees), and jump out onto the small, round island in the water here,
        then jump off at the end of it, and head forward.

        This shortcut works best if you use a mushroom, and avoid driving in
        the water as much as possible (use a mushroom just as you go out to
        the island, jump before you hit the water, then jump again as you come
        to the end of the small island.

______________________________________________________________________________
Riverside Park
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Shortcut #1 Method: From the start of the race, head around the first corner.
                    Keep heading forward until you come to the start of the
                    second turn (it turns off to the left). Now look forward
                    (towards the water), you should be able to see a narrow
                    wooden bridge pointing out into the water. With a closer
                    examination you'll see that there are 7 brown tiles
                    floating out in the water, and over the other side is
                    another part of a bridge.

                    Line yourself up with the bridge, and use a mushroom as
                    you are on the bridge. Hit jump and hopefully you'll jump
                    the tiles and land on the bridge on the other side.

                    Don't worry if you don't quite land on the bridge over the
                    other side, because you can still drive onto it and have
                    still saved some time.


Shortcut #2 Method: After going over the jump which takes you over water,
                    drive forward, as you come to the start of the turn (that
                    goes right) head forward, and to the right just a little.
                    Facing the water you should be able to see a line of
                    shallow water which will allow you to drive over it, and
                    skip the next turn.

                    This will save you a few seconds, and is VERY easy to do.

        a very thin bit of track spiltting off to your right. If you follow it
        you'll see a boost pad, which will give you a nice little speed boost.

Boo Lake
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Shortcut #1 Method: When you come to the area in the track where there is a
                    large, square hole in the track, and the track splits in
                    two are goes around either side of it, you can save a very
                    small amount of time by using a mushroom as you approach
                    the hole, hitting the jump at the start of the hole and
                    turning left a little as you go over the jump, as you will
                    land on the left turn, thus skipping the tiniest amount of
                    track.

Shortcut #2 Method: Also when you come to the split track just before there
                    first shortcut there is an invisible bridge that cuts the
                    corner. If you wait there for a few seconds it glows blue
                    so you can see it. Thanks to Rory for send us that one.

Shortcut #3 Method: As you come to the end of the straight section of track
                    with the four boos (holding candles), instead of heading
                    right around the hole in the track, head left, and go
                    across the thin wooden bridge. This will save you taking
                    the turn here.

Shortcut #1 Method: As you come to the first jump in the track (where you jump
                    over a section of the track) use a mushroom just before
                    you hit the turbo pads and jump  and turn right as you are
                    in the air. This will allow you to skip part of the turn
                    here.


Shortcut #2 Method: As you come to the second jump across track, again use a
                    mushroom just before you hit the boost strip and jump, and
                    as you are in the air, turn sharply to the left. This
                    will allow you to skip almost all, if not all of the turn
                    here.

Luigi Circuit
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Method: Make your way through the track, and as you are driving up the long
        straight before the second last turn (see your map if you need too ;)
        you will find that there is a small gap in the wall straight ahead of
        you (before you go right to take the turn). Just drive through
        carefully and you'll have skipped on small turn.

______________________________________________________________________________
Sky Garden
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Shortcut #1 Method: After jumping the gap in the track (towards the start of
                    the track), instead of taking the turn to your right,
                    head straight ahead, use a mushroom right as you hit the
                    edge of the cloud, jump and turn left a little. You will
                    be able to jump over and land on the next section of
                    track, skipping a fairly large turn.


Shortcut #2 Method: At one of the turns in the track, there is a little jump
                    on the inside parts of the turn. As you approach it, use
                    a mushroom, aim directly ahead and as you go over the jump
                    turn slightly to your left, and you should land on the
                    track ahead of you. This will save nice a chunk of time.



Shortcut #3 Method: As you come to the final turn of the track, on the inside
                    of the turn (to your left) you will see a cloud floating,
                    which is bridging the gap between the turn. Jump onces to
                    land on the cloud, and again to land back on the other
                    side of the track.

Cheep-Cheep Island
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Shorcut #1 Method: Cross the first two bridges, and on the thrid island to your
                   left, out across the water is a tiny gap in the wall. You'll
                   have to boost out towards the wall first time so you know
                   exactly where the gap in the wall is. Anyway, getting back
                   to where we were...
                   On the third island, once you know where the gap is, aim for
                   it, use a mushroom to boost out, and jump as you boost.
                   Hopefully you'll be able to both skim across the water,
                   AND find the gap in the wall. Once through the gap, follow
                   the thin area of sand to your left, on the outside of this
                   green island until you come to the area where the rainbow
                   wall end. Here, boost out past the end of the wall, onto the
                   water, and skim across and turn to your right, and back onto
                   land.

Shortcut #2 Method: Follow the normal track course, and once you get towards
the
                    bottom of the map, and have turned left and gone across a
                    small bridge, keep going FORWARD, not left, and you will
see
                    a small jump. Mushroom across to the wooden pier. Thanks to
                    Richard Sanderson for very nice that shortcut.

Sunset Wilds
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Method: When you come to the end of the area with the Shy Guy teepees, and
        boost pads, look to your right and you will see a jump that will
        allow you to fly over the rainbow wall, thus bypassing the turn. If you
        use a mushroom over the jump and turn a sharp left, you'll be even
        further ahead of the other racers. Thanks to Brandon Masters for the
        extra tip on that shortcut.

Snow Land
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Shortcut #1 Method:  You will come to a right turn, at which point, to your
                     left you'll see two frozen, dark blue puddles. Drive
                     inbetween them, and you will be able to drive along a
                     straight of ice (which won't slow you down at all).
                     This will save you a tiny bit of time.


Shortcut #2 Method:  After the first three turns (rght, left right) you'll be
                     at about the top of the on screen map. Instead of turning
                     right and going around the corner, go straight ahead.
                     Here, you'll se a gap in the rainbow wall. Go through the
                     gap, along the dark blue track, and turn right when you
                     have to. You'll see a line of about 5 or so boost pads,
                     right infront of each other.
                     You know what to do.

Ribbon Road
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Method: When you come to the first jump across track area, as you hit the
        boost pad, and the jump, turn right and land on the track here.

        This shortcut will save you a ****ing arseload of time, and is damn
        easy to pull off.

______________________________________________________________________________
Yoshi Desert
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Method: Near the end of the track there is an oasis, which Is presumably a
        mirage, but your car seems to think it's real. If you turn left,
        you'll see the edge of the oasis touching the rainbow wall.
        At this area the amount of water you have to jump over is smallest,
        and so when here, use a mushroom to boost and jump over the water next
        to the wall.

        And one last thing, watch out for the whirlpool of quicksand near the
        oasis.

Bowser Castle 3
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Method: At the section with about 5 jumps, and on the last jump, you can bounce
        over to the other side of the long hairpin. You have to hit it just
right
        and be doing 150cc or time trial to have suffucient speed. It's very
        difficult to pull off, so give it some time to work. Thanks to Richard
        Sanderson for sending in that shourtcut.

Lakeside Park
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Shortcut #1 Method:  From the start of the level, head around the first corner
                     (right), and the next wind in the road. Cross the bridge
                     and then look to your right.
                     You'll see water, and across it more track.
                     Use a mushroom boost and jump out across the water for
                     the track across the other side. If timed correctly this
                     shortcut is reasonably easy to do.

Shortcut #2 Method: When you come to the jump across the track, as you hit the
                    boost pad, and jump, turn left, and you'll save yourself
                    part of the turn, and thus a few milliseconds.

Shortcut #3 Method: This shortcut is a bit tricky to pull off. What you need to
                    do is just before the last hairpin before the bit where you
                    have a booster and you jump over a section of the track,
                    take that last hairpin WIDE. That way you’re lined up for
                    the single booster which is on the right side. Hit the
single
                    booster, followed by the booster before the jump and then
                    pull just a tad to the right. If you time it correctly you
                    can land on a bit of a wall, but if landed perfectly you’ll
                    see two jump pad lines there, land on those and you’ll jump
                    over to the track again, thus shaving off a huge corner.
                    Thanks to PalmBeer for that shortcut.

Broken Pier
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Shortcut #1 Method: A bit before half way around the track, you should see a
                    bunch of coins forming an arrow shape. The arrow is
                    pointing at a jump that leads off the edge. Off the edge,
                    there is a platform floating. The idea is to hit the jump
                    the arrows point at with a mushroom and land safely on the
                    platform off the track. Once one that platform, you'll get
                    a speed boost which will send you to the other side of the
                    track, cutting off a far bit of the track. This shortcut
                    can be tricky to pull off. Thanks to Lee Kirwan for the
                    infomation on that shortcut.

Shortcut #2 Method: Just after the first shorcut, you see a lonely boo floating
                    next to the edge. On the otherside you'll see the rest of
                    the track. If you wait awhile you'll see that there is an
                    invisible bridge that glows blue occasionally. It leads to
                    the other side of the track through a small gap in the wall
                    on the other side. Head straight at the bridge and you can
                    drive safely across it. Thanks to Lee Kirwan for the
                    infomation on that shortcut as well.


Shortcut #3 Method: Towards the end of the track is a hole in the track. To
                    the right is the "normal" path, and to the left of the
                    hole (pretty much straight ahead) is a thin wooden bridge.
                    If you take the wooden bridge you'll save an ittby bitty
                    bit of time.

For most of these shortcuts, you will need to use a mushroom boost to be able
to make it as far as you need to land on track.

All of the shortcuts have a very simple idea: use the jump pads that line most
of the track to jump out across onto another section of track which will end
up saving you quite a bit of time.

Of course, use your head, and you'll realise that there are more, but much
smaller shortcuts on the small twists and turns in the track using the same
method.

Method: Just after the jump in the track (the one where you can fall down the
        track) you will normally go around to the right, but there is a gap in
        the track, which has a bridge over it.
        You can jump just as you come to the gap, and land on the bridge, or
        use a mushroom at the jump in the track, line up with the bridge, and
        you should do an extra high jump, and be able to land on the bridge.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Method: When you first come to water, turn left (off the road), turn left, and
        follow the rainbow wall until you come to the water's edge, at which
        point you use a mushroom and skim across the water, and to the other
        side.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Method: On the straight part of track (bottom right of the screen) don't take
        the next turn in the trackm instead head out onto the dirt and through
        the gap in the rainbow wall, and onto the track ahead (bottom left of
        the map).

Koopa Beach 1
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
I'm not going to list the specific shortcuts in this level, because there are
almost infinite possibilities.
Whenever you see water to your right, you can probably use a mushroom and skim
over to the other side.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Method: From the start of the level, drive directly forward, and you'll go
        through a gap in the rainbow wall. How easy is that?

Mario Circuit 4
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Method: On the curved area that begins on the bottom left (on the map), when
        you come to the first curve (that goes to the left) continue driving
        straigh (onto the dirt) and through the gap in the rainbow wall.

Donut Plains 3
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Method: Once you get to the second bridge with the jump, use a mushroom and
        turn left sharply going over the jump. If done right, you'll fly over
        a rainbow wall, then just over another rainbow wall and be right near
        the finish line. This one can be a bit tricky to pull off. Thanks to
        Bradon Masters for that shortcut.

Avoid skidding out when you hit a banana
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This tip also works for other things, like the crabs you'll find on beaches
etc.

As soon as you hit a banana (or other object that will spin you out) tap the
B button, and a musical not should apear above your characters head.
If you see the note, you know you're safe, and have avopided spinning out.

______________________________________________________________________________
Boost Start
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Like to get off to a great start? Well, here's how.
At the start of the race, Lakitu has a set of lights, that turn on as a "beep"
noise is made. There are three lights, and on the third light the race starts.
To get a turbo start, hit the accelerater exactly halfway inbetween the 2nd
and 3rd light lighting up:

*Beep*......*Beep*...A...*Beep*

If you did it right, you'll certainly know about it.

______________________________________________________________________________
Boost Recovery
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
If you fall into water, off a track that is raised up above the ground, into
lava etc, Lakitu will float down on his cloud and pull you back up onto the
track. To get a speed boost, and get on the road to recovery a lot faster,
wait till Lakitu is putting you back on the track, and just as the wheels of
your kart touch the track, hit A. If you timed it perfeclty (which is rather
hard) you'll be given a speed boost.

______________________________________________________________________________
Delete all game data
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

If for some reason you want to erase your game data, don't bother sticking the
game cartridge in a barrel of acid...no just turn on the system while holding
L + R + B + Start. When you do this a screen will pop up asking it it's ok to
erase all saved data.

______________________________________________________________________________
Get "sunset" sky in title screen
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
To get the sunset sky in the title screen, you'll need to get gold trophies
on all of the GameBoy Advance specific cups, on 50, 100 and 150cc difficutly.

______________________________________________________________________________
Get "night time" sky in title screen
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
There aren't many people at all, who are going to end up getting the nightime
sky in the title screen. But if you think you're good enough, and up to the
challenge, then here's what you have to do:
GET THE TRIPLE STAR RATING ON EVERY SINGLE CUP OF THE SUPER CIRCUIT TRACKS!
Good 'efin luck :P

______________________________________________________________________________
Honk your horn
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Some people seem to forget that there is a select button tucked away under the
d-pad.

______________________________________________________________________________
Unlock Special Cups
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
To unlock the Special Cups on each of the three difficulties, on both normal
and bonus cups, you'll have to get gold trophies on each of the four cups
before it (Mushroom, flower, lightning and star) on the difficulty level you
want to unlock the special cup for.

______________________________________________________________________________
Unlock 20 bonus original Mario Kart tracks
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
After getting gold trophies on each of the 5 normal cups, re-race them all,
and by then end of each cup, you'll have to have collected 100 or more coins
all up, through the four races and come at least 3rd overall. (beat mushroom
cup normal, with 100 coins to get the respective original cup).
If you want the 50cc Snes tracks, you'll have to get 100 Coins on each of the
normal cups on 50cc, if you want the 100cc Snes tracks, you'll have to get 100
Coins on each of the normal cups on 100cc etc.

______________________________________________________________________________
Racer select fun
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
On the racer select screen:
Hit the Left Shoulder button and the rider you have selected will shoot a
green shell in the direction they are facing, hit the Right Shoulder button
and they will jump or hit the select button and they will honk their horn
(you can do both of these as much as you like).

If you have any fast times to submit, email Jarred (jarredmilde@hotmail.com)
your best Lap and Race times, the Track name(s) and what character you used
to get them, and try to keep them in the same format as the way they are
presented in this FAQ.

Now...I have no way of knowing if these times are real or not, so hopefully
people have been, and will be honest with their times.
