i presume it's a combination of things but was just wondering if anyone knew? does replaying tracks to get better times increase it for example, even if you already have the platinum medal?
I can't say exactly how the score is calculated, since I don't know.

What I do know is that zero faulting gives you a higher score than just a faster time. I've read on the RedLynx forums that it's better to zero fault a course and have crappy time, rather than a faster time and a couple of faults.

Once you've gained platinum, then yes, faster times will push you up the leaderboards.
