Don't you just start accelerating when the countdown is on 2?


I didn't have a problem on the other mk games, but I've never been able to do it on 8. Not being able to do it has never been a problem until now when we are doing time trials.

I read about accelerating from 2, but its not working for me - so do you literally just hold accelerate when 2 appears or should be as it fades?

I do it when the 2 is fully visible and it seems to work fine


Cheers. Not quite sure if I'm timing it to get the maximum boost but I managed to at least get a bit of a boost.

So which cc and track are we doing first?

I still remember you and I having a back and forth exchange of times on a bowsers castle track, and I thought I had it, only got you to hold a time back and post it at the last minute.

Between this and the AYAMMM speedrun battles that are going on at the moment it feels like Mario is the place to be for speed right now! :toot:

Why the strawberry float do they allow you to switch between different speeds for Time Trial? Bizarre.

I flipped a coin and the outcome was 200cc so we'll go with that.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I'll start us off with a 1:16.4xx on my first decent run

I feel like 2nd and 3rd place folks deserve some kinda shout out too. But it might make keeping track a bit harder. I don't have the game anymore but this seems really fun. Might ask my cousin to let me borrow his copy >,>

Are Wii U times compatible?

Unfortunately not, the Wii U version doesn't have 200cc time trials. I'm almost tempted to buy the game again...

It's also somewhat rebalanced.

So is this first one 200cc only?

Yeah. If after this round the majority want to drop to 150 we can give that a go. I've barely played 200cc even in GP mode but it wasn't too bad, slightly more challenging as you have to adjust your lines to accommodate the extra speed

I too was worried, until I just checked the online ghosts and realised that would make Drummy the world champion by a wide margin.

I'm ok with losing to the best.

The in game ghost is like 1:10 and I can't get close to it.

Fear not, I created a spreadsheet that adds times and calculates points based on placing. I'll provide an update each week. :msgreen:
