View Full Version : Mandashree 2 Time Trial

16th July 2002, 08:59 PM
Is anyone having as much trouble with this as i am.. the record is 40 seconds, and i cant get even close.. like 41:56 was my best.. the only way i got my best time 36:96 was by triggering the first bridge up, then turboing off of the top and into the mountain to the left.. miraclously i ended up in the tunnel and was fairly far ahead... but shouldnt you be able to beat the record without "cheating" ? and i was using pirhana at 100%, and their record is with feisar!!

are you referring to the second challenge @ madrashee? the gold time is sub-37s - i have done it maybe 20 - 30 times since Saturday and after the initial learn the track phase i just can't get to 37s. every time it's between 37.4ish and 38.0ish even on "pefect laps" and going for as many speed pads as possible - what's the trick?

no im talking about the time trial for mandrasheee 2, i dont know what you mean when you say the challenges for mandashree.. arent the challenges for each team, not track?

what ship are you using?
And do you have damage simulation on or off?

im using pirhana at 100% with damage simulation off... and they used feisar at 100% and their record is at least 1.5 seconds faster than mine unless i "cheat"... im just wondering if they had to "cheat" to get their time also.. cause that just doesnt sound right.. or is there a secret path i dont know about?

are you using your airbrakes and getting all the speedup pads you possibly can?

Your problem might be that you're using a 100% Pirhana. Try a 96% Prihana, or something. Drop all your airbrake upgrades. Brakes slow you down, you know? 8 )
If you find that you need more powerful airbrakes for some turns, slowly upgrade them till you've got just barely enough.
That and some more practice might take off a couple seconds.

I just pulled a 39.56 on this track. 100% piranha, no shortcuts...I'll tell you what I did.
it was my second lap of the session, so I used my boost just before the start of the second lap. that way I pretty much used 2 boosts on my winning lap. when you come to the bridge, LEAVE IT DOWN. I found that moving it up adds maybe .5 seconds to your time. Use the second boost at any long straight you find.

I don't know about that. My best lap is 35:18, and I DID use the ramp shortcut. I couldn't get close to that time if I didn't.

I did it in 35.94 using the ramp. In race mode I can do it in 34.78 oddly enough.

because in race mode you can get more turbos. And leave the bridge down. It helps a lot.
