My best time is about 1:40 after running two fairly solid laps. It seems to me that in order to shave off that much time to get down to 1:15 there must be some sort of shortcut or trick (or else they're expecting two *flawless* laps)

I've seen a couple spots where you can use the speed rocket + ramps to do jumps, I'm guessing there's some sort of way to shortcut an area of the track perhaps.

Anyone get this yet? If so how? I don't think it's just running the standard race because I've had runs where I got a bunch of unlucky weapon pickups instead of speed boosts. You would need a very good string of speed boosts and springs to do the whole thing straight up.

I got 1:26 as my best, but I never get those dam boost things. But if you haven't done this already change your car from light to sport and it will go much faster. Orginally, I thought the achievement was 1:30 or less and then after realizing it wasn't.........

if you use a boost on the first jump and aim it right, you can fly past the fan and shave a few seconds off your time

Once Again i am here to help after 3 Hrs i figured out that you had to do this achievement In arcade!!! Then you have to make the settings on hard and change the car type to sport then when i did it the first time i got 1:25 kept at it and as long as you gave a little luck and pratice you should be able to do it my final time was 1:13:22 here are some tips

Tip #1- If you dont get boosts at the start Restart
Tip #2- know where to use your boost so you dont flip your car

First at the loop de loop is the first boost
second is right after the loop around the turn
third boost is on the second ramp up not the first
4th boost is on the way to the table on the ramp
then again on the table

6th only on the last lap unless your feeling lucky on the final straightaway because you will end up at the finish to shave a couple seconds

if you need any more help let me kno

I got freaking ZERO speed boosts on the second lap and still got 1:19... how dumb to have such a totally random luck element involved.

Also, if you angle your car right during the first sequence of bonus boxes, you can pick up 2 of them, very useful when farming for speed boosts.

I finally got this a couple of days ago too and here are my tips:

1. get three rockets immeaditly at the beginning and boost(if not then restart)
2. boost at loop de loop
3. do not boost at long straightaway on the floor - go inbetween the table legs on the left side to get to the other side(saves rocket)
4. Boost on the second longer ramp going up(this is a must)
5. Boost again after 4 to jump the gap quicker if you have a rocket
6. Do not boost at the jump(more often then not you will flip)
7. Boost as soon as you land from the big jump
8 and finally boost around the corner to slingshot you to the finish line.

I think my best time was 1:13 using this method

Basically the same method I used to get it and I also was in the 1:13 area.

I didn't. Not needed and it can be very easy to miss your jump.

Yeah got it yesterday. 1:14.97

Did it on the same way but I jumped the first time. The jump was perfect. I used a boost at the chairs and drove good bitween it.


Again a 200/200

This is ridiculous, I can't get under 1:20. Did anyone do that jump where you cut the corner ?

Still giving me fits... Hadn't seen the "boost list" written here before, will give that one a try. Tried the jump method from the video in the other thread, and that one is too random to be relied upon.

Thanks for the help!

Finally! 1:14.38 FTW! That was a tough one. Did it without the jump shortcut, too.

If you're working this one, best advice I can give is boost, boost, boost. If you don't get a boost for that first powerup, go ahead and restart, you're not going to get there.

Good luck, all!
