Hints, Secrets, Glitches & Easter Eggs

 

Super Speedway Secret Short Cut

On the track "Sewer Speedway", after you pass the 1st log, go to the left side of the sewer while looking on the right; if you see a hole in the high wall, head to the left side and jump as soon as you hit the ledge.

Papus Pyramid Secret Area

After you go up the sharp turning staircase and past the first 2 piranha plants, there is a gap between the arrows. If one powerslides at the right angle or has a Aku Aku/Uka Uka mask, they can reach a secret platform that leads back onto the main race course. It may seem risky, but it puts you ahead a good distance.

Nitro Court Hint

In Nitro Court, try to get all the crystals in the inner places before trying to get the crystals on the outer places. Also hit the question mark boxes to get bombs and stuff to help you break some of the nitro boxes so you don't get blown up and waste 5-6 secs.

Relic Race Hint

In a relic race, try to break all the time boxes. If you do, you get 10 secs. of your finish time.

Slide Colisseum Hint

In the track SLIDE COLISSEUM, you can jump over some tyres and barriers. This saves you up to 20 secs. or more in the overall race. Also, in a relic race, nearly all the 3 sec. time freeze boxes are over tyres.

How To Get A TNT Crate Off Your Head

If you hit a TNT crate it will land on your head, after it lands on your head press R1 or L1 about ten times or so and it will fall off your head.

Dragon Mines Shortcut

If you have a mask, save it. About a quarter of the way through the race is a railroad track with coal cars on it that go to the right. Use your mask then follow the coal cars.

Blizzard Bluff Shortcut

If you have a uka uka or a turbo boost, save it until you get to a icepond then turn left and there will be a ramp, once you get to the top of the ramp press L1 or R1 than you will make it over a lake. It takes practice though.

Open N. Oxide's Space Ship

You must collect 4 boss keys and 16 trophies to open N. Oxide's space ship.

A Easier Way To Beat N. Tropy On Time Trial

First unlock super turbo pads, then do time trial and then select a track and finish the track to race N. Tropy, and when you go on a tubo pad you will go super fast and N. Tropy cant.

Cup Points

When you race in a cup race or a gem cup race you get points.

1st Place:           9 Points.
2nd Place:           6 Points.
3rd Place:           3 Points.
4th Place:           1 Points.
5th Place:           0 Points.
6th Place:           0 Points.
7th Place:           0 Points.
8th Place:           0 Points.

Unlock Difficulty Settings Normal And Hard

Succesfuly complete all four cup races to unlock more dificulty settings such as normal and hard difficulty settings.

Crystal Levels

After you defeat a boss in a level you can go back to the level and do a crystal level to compete for a purple CTR token.

Skull Rock
Rampage Ruins
Rocky Road
Nitro Court

Blizzard Bluff Shortcut 2

After the start/finsh line, on the left of the track, there will be two mountians, there will be a space between them, then go inbetween them and then make your way back on the road.

Avoiding The Warp Orb

If your in first place and a warp orb is after you, let someone get past you before it can hit you.

Juiced Up

Get ten fruit to be juiced up.

Hopping Hint

In "sewer speedway" (or on any ramp for that matter)you can hop off the ramps to avoid falling. It works with me.

Hot Air Skyway Shortcut

At the middle of the race, after the big jump, you will come to the narrow track where you can see another piece of race track to your right. After you pass it turn around so you are facing the wrong way. Speed up and try to jump over the thin barrier. It is so helpful that it moved me from 8th to 1st.

CTR Tokens In Crash Cove

If you're trying to get the CTR tokens in Crash Cove you have to try to ride up the wallafter you go off that first jump where the C token is by pressing R1. It takes a while, but eventually you'll get it.

Getting The

After passing through the first narrow strip of flaming statues, go a little further forwards and you should see a piece of the wall that is a darker blue. Hit it with a bomb or have an Aku/Aku and it will let you through to get the "R"

Speed Boost

Whenever you meet a ramp, jump and when you reach the ground, you will go faster for a while. During the start of any race, hold accelarate at the correct time (some time between 1sec and the green light), you will boost for a while. When you fall from a ramp, you will get restored to the track by Oca-oca/Aco-aco. 1 sec before you reach the ground, hold accelarator and you will boost. All have to be done at the exact time.

Go Racer, Go

On Cortex Castle, if you have a uka uka or a turbo boost, save it. In the middle of the level, there will be a blue room. Right when you get into the blue room, use you'r uka uka or turbo boost and jump left. You will land on a platform wich will lead you to another shortcut. Note: You you must have the right equipment to be able to accomplish this move.

Jumping To First

On POLAR PASS if you have a turbo boost or an uka uka use it in the tunnel where the two seals are. Wait a little bit. There will be a wall there. Jump and you will make it over the wall.

Bomb Direction

If you have a bomb, press Square, direction you want the bomb to go, and Circle.

Shortcut

On Papu Papu's Pyrimid, get a turbo of any kind then close to the end of the level you'll make a left turn onto a ramp then a u-turn to the finish. At the bottom of the ramp you have to use your turbo then jump to the right at the top of the ramp. It's not much but it might get you in the lead.

A Shortcut

On TIGER TEMPLE if you get a rocket or a potion then throw it forward to a big face like shape. If your weapon hit the face, then it will open to a shortcut.
