I'm now doing the Oxide trials for the very first time. As in, I've never even done them back on the PS1 version. And I played that A LOT.
Chose Sewer Speedway and Dragon Mines first because I've read they're some of the hardest to do and I knocked them out in a couple of tries! Rest should be a cinch.

Man I really really really like the new track. Only track I've felt compelled to get in the top 100 in the leaderboards (still far from it though)

Yay got Sewer Speedway done too that actually didn't take too long. Managed to hit the shortcut all three laps. So yay that's all the original tracks oxide times done. Now to learn and work on CNK stuff.

Agreed. Soundtrack is also kickass. I love how the music switches between the Egyptian and Arabian sections.


Edit: I just found out about how you can go into one of the buildings by going left off the jump before the stairs to the 2nd blue fire pad. Crazy; I have to wonder if the optimal route uses it at all.

Where can I report a glitch?

Just did the CTR token for Papu Papu's Pyramid, and upon winning was kicked to the main menu, i re-entered my adventure mode and it loaded me into the trophy screen for the CTR token but still didnt actually give it to me.

Got 9/10 on the weekly quests. I just need 3 more online victories but I don't think I'll get it in time. Oh well, I'm in the top 5% for now, so I'm happy.

Goddamn I still need practice with the hopping / e brakes on turbo track. My mind is wired to not use the d pad how I’m supposed to when I’m e braking and hopping. Those u turns are deadly.

That part is tough to get right, I can only make it through the firs hairpin with my blue fire.

lmaooooooooooooooo
They don't use the accelrate button, instead they rely on the drifting+turbo and turbo pads for speed

I learned about that Twilight Tour shortcut from Redhot as well but I've seen people use it online for sure.

I'm gunna be 'that guy' but I really wish there was a no items mode online.

I love the racing, but I haaaaate the random bullshit that's always out of my control.

The framerate on inferno Island is really bad. I have quite a bit of slowdown in general when many items are in use. Is that normal or is it my ps4 pro that could have a problem?

The rattlesnake kart pattern is gorgeous, even as someone who's sick of the Bandibuggy.

EDIT: Aaaaaaand the track just disappeared. Ever tried to beat Polar Pass when you can't see the track ahead of you?

I’m in the top 3.8% right now, but I’m away on vacation next week. Trying to gain as much ground as I can, lol.

Just got kicked offline on the Switch saying I need to download the newest patch. I go to manually update the game and it's saying I'm on the latest version. ;_;

edit: weird, able to go back online now

So, is there anyone else who forgot/ wasn’t aware that you can pull the race camera back? I forgot I did that day one. I could have been racing with a better view of my surroundings this whole time lol.

Yeah, after doing all the Relic Races, I can't go back to the normal setting. I wish there was an option to toggle which is your default, but I've gotten used to hitting L2 at the start of every race.

I played the original with the pull-back view, so used the same here. I actually have trouble watching videos of others that don't pull back the camera.

Wow really, a "Play 5 games of Steal the Bacon in Rocky Road" daily challenge? It's like they're out to make my time on this game miserable

Online is so bad in this game. The end results often don't match what I experience in a race. Like finishing 1st or 2nd and ending up 4th or 6th.

I don't think I've ever played a worse online multiplayer in a racing game.

This on PS4?
Since the day 2 patch the online has been smooth sailing for me. Lobbies are dropped when the host leaves, but other than that it's perfect.

Is there any stages that are particularly superior for farming WC during off-time? Trying to clear the event so I just would like to stockpile coins given how expensive certain things can be

Papu's Pyramid doing the glitch shortcut. It nets you 40 coins and races take less than 40 seconds. Factor in the race countdown timer and you roughly get a coin per second assuming you hit it consistently.

Xbox.The game has a lot of problems. For example I can't leave the menu after changing characters in adventure mode. The game gets stuck and it doesn't matter what button I press. Last weekend I only got nitro for finishing an online race if I got a DNF. Actually winning or finishing a race didn't get me any nitro payouts. I could go on...
