I couldn't get it with the yellwo red comet car as well.
What i did is i used the same car voornes gang used in the level (Black Limousine i think)
It is mostly black and has red dots on top of the back wheels.
What was important for me was that i had to move from Turbo(A) to the Jump(B).
If i left my finger on Turbo added the jump button i would always fall down like a brick.
Hope this helps.
