Cars Glitches

  • Off Track Glitch

    Entry location: Road races
    In most road races it is fairly easy to run yourself off the track. When this happens, a warning and three second timer will appear- when the timer is up, you are placed back on the track. Try intentionally throwing your car off the course, then, when the timer appears, press the track reset button. You'll find that you've been placed back on the course about a second ahead of where you were! You'll be going slower, but if you have the boost, you can just use it to speed up and continue racing or to send yourself off the track again. You can do this as many times as you need to win the race, take a four second lead to a 20 second lead if you want.
