    fun fact : i never liked that course until i learned it completely

    Going for the antigravity part

    Well well well,you have like a turn and a glider before reaching that. Let's see how does one gains time there.


    Glider :

    One does not simply mess around at this glider. The timing has to be very very special,to do not lose time and get the coins properly. First of all,you should do 2 slides before reaching the glider part,it can make you gain around .010 milliseconds.



    Then until you get the 2nd coin,keep putting your pad down,but try going a bit on the right too,otherwise the angle of the next turn will be screwed up.

    The first turn :


    Yeah there sure is something special. You start your drift through glider ( it should be really easy to do and to notice aswell) ,then you leave your pad neutral, and you keep switching between neutral position and softdrift while aiming for the tightest turn possible.


    Then release your SMT while staying tight,and while softdrifting aswell. Do 2 hops going on the right without touching your pad.



    The Purple Antigravity Part

    Now that we've reached the antigravity part,we can start saying that anything that you do must be frame perfect to gain a lot of time.

    The second turn :

    When you are starting your drift, it should be like a slide. Why ? It's just better for the rest. You should have this kind of angle when you start it


    Then go on the left until the specific spot where you will have to release your SMT.

    Start your hoptech by a left hop,then after 5 hops,start sliding twice and aim for the spinbooster

    Spin Booster :

    Most people say that the spin booster is pretty random,the way to gain time with it is luckbased,ect. Well,I'll prove you wrong.


    No I didn't get 'bumped'. That's because at the SMT release,I was aiming a lot on the left (So during the entire hop I moved my pad on the left) and then kept going.But still,taking it this way isn't going to make you gain a lot.


    Yeah,it's a hop. So what you have to do basically,to gain time by taking the spinbooster :

    Aim for the left after the SMT release,do 5 hops which starts by a left hop,take the spinbooster by the left without getting bumped while doing a slide going on the left,do a hop then a slide right after it, and do 2 hops then keep sliding until the next drift.


    I want to see the place where Shy Guys are singing

    Well then,i'll tell ya how to get there quicker.

    So for now,you can do any slidetech you want,but it has to end up on at least 1 slide going on the right,to gain time of course.

    The third turn :

    Whenever you start the third turn,start it by softdrifting,then go on the left,but don't touch your pad too much otherwise you'll end up losing time.



    For the first moment that you have to go on the right,just follow how the road goes,but keep going tight


    After that , still staying tight,gonna do a softdrift and then i go on the left with 3 hops then a slide on the stud to have these 2 coins




    Then release your SMT at the end of the 3rd huge stair,and hop on the 5th one,and then trick on the glider.



    The shortcut

    Eh,nobody likes that part I guess. Normal,because the exit is a pain in the ass.

    Aim for the right,take the coins that are mainly on the right,start your drift by going on the left then leave your pad neutral until you've gotten the 2nd coin and then go on the right again.



    Now,to take the shortcut at least properly :

    You are going to keep your pad on the right,until the moment when you will be in the air,you will move suddently a little your pad on the left to get a perfect angle similar to this one :


    Then shroom as tight as possible,but put again right after shrooming your pad on the right to do not hit the wall.




    Then do slides.


    Nothing differs on lap2 and 3,it's pretty much the same timing for everything at a faster pace, besides that the second turn can be taken by putting your pad completely on the right.

    @Nearo: By the way, I noticed that on gliders pads, with the right timing, you can trigger a standard jump + trick instead of the glider trick. You do this on the second glider segment of the first lap. Do you think this is faster than the glider trick?

    On the first glider,it saves about .005

    On the second glider,it saves about .025

    " Glitched " gliders are always faster,but of course,harder to get
