    I said it was pretty tough, I've only pulled it off once, but I am confident that it is a key to getting this trophy. Also, if you use the boost on the turn leading to the hop onto the narrow straight, you save a ton of time because of all the speed you lose making the turn.

    @Elhabib--Good call on the music, I never thought about that, but I bet it would help my concentration, it gets way distraction on the high speeds. Subsonic made my eyes go all googly.

    The Beat Zico trophy is one of the hardest if not the hardest, you need the right tactic and then execute it as perfectly as you can

    And no

    I'm not going to say who how where

    But the Zico time is beatable by half a second.... (least thats what we've seen so far)

    No way, what fun is it if you don't work it out? We know it's doable, so let's just go do it. The journey is the fun part, reaching the destination is just icing.

    Ok, that's enough waxing philosohpic from me.

    Anyone have tips for beating the Elite AI? I was doing fine, but seem to be stuck now on the harder tracks. Should I maybe drop down to skilled and practice some more, or are there any good tricks that seem to work well.

    For zone mode, I find it easier to race a perfect line when I'm concentrating on the the farther track sections. This really makes a difference for me.
    Propably because you're focussed on what's next and you now can prepare for it.

    Maybe that's what everyone's doing anyway, but I found myself not doing it everytime (so that I had to remind myself several times in a race to do it).

    I take it that 'no' from Colin is the answer to me being 99% sure that Zico used the line I described. Hm, interesting... must find new turbo point...

    Without testing here are three more ideas I just had:
    1. Do not use the turbo for an entire lap, then, just before you cross the finish line, use the turbo so you can take the speed for the next lap.
    2. There are three speed pads in an ^-position once (on the huge turn, before the track splits), you can take two of them with a nice shift.
    3. Try making a BR when you make the jump to the narrow track section by flying as much to the right side as possible to gain enough height.

    Can you do the BR without a turbo? This needs some experimentation me'thinks.

    Maybe this should be renamed the Beat Zico thread as that is all we're talking about.
