    Elhabib.
    From the start line and before you side shifted across the 3 diagonal S/Pads,did you take the tightest line around the corner[which would means 1 or 2 less S/Pads hit] or did you hit all the S/pads by taking the corner wider?

    And if it was the tightest line,was there a specific way you took the first corner? :Side shifting.

    I'm starting to think the tighter line might be the option,as even though you hit more S/Pads you are actually having to travel further across the track to line up for the 3 diagonal S/Pads,which actually costs you time.

    Is that the case?

    Personnally, I tried to side shift in the first left corner, it help me to gain a few time. after I use the 4 br lap. The 3rd br before the bridge makes me going since I'm still not able to perform it each lap, but it's better than before.
    I reached 30.97 so I'll continue this way to beat it (soon

    Right,

    This trophy is beginning to give me the immense ****ing ****s. 3 BRs to get under 30.82 is BS, 4 BR is possible with a perfect racing line, but 5 BR is the way a certain trophy.

    Where about can you get the 5th BR on the course? And what are the best ways to get that nasty bitch of a BR onto the skybridge? If anybody has got a video of the way i love to see it.

    I feel it's somewhat of a cheat to use videos - but I'm sure that hasn't stopped 90% of players from looking. Just look up "zico" on Youtube.

    i haven't got a video (there's a truckload on the 'tube), but i'll do my best to explain.
    1. after you boost off the bump to catch some air.
    2. land as far to the right as possible and aim left when you take off to do the 2nd BR
    3. the bost should kick in on the crest of the hill which gives you more air for a 3rd.
    4. people have told me you can sideshift the left-hander (before the 3 pads in arrowhead formation) and get a BR here. i couldn't do it cos i'm rubbish but it's not crucial.
    5. the toughie: take as tighter line as possible and then get as high on the bank as possible so that your sort of diagonal when you take off. i used motion for pitch here to help but you don't actually need it but it greatly improved my consistency. get the LRL off as quickly as possible. if it helps, switch to d-pad (if you're a stick user). this makes it somewhat easier.
    6. standard procedure: drop and BR onto the pad
    7. crack open the champers.

    Alternatively, follow a ghost so you get the line right.

    KIGO: even without the hard BR (onto the bridge) you can get 30.55 with only 3
    BR, if your lines are perfect that is, trust me on that, I did many 30.45 with
    only 3 BR (with Icaras, add maximum 0.10 sec for Piranha).

    But yeah, I suggest you do that 4th BR, the 5th BR is completely useless, it
    doesn't give you any boost advantage.

    Well, all I know is that I made a valiant attempt yesterday. On lap 97, I did everything perfectly (or so I thought), nailing 4 BR, including the last while dropping onto the speed pad from the bridge, and I still didn't beat Zico's time. I believe I got 31.48 or something...I forget. I was bewildered and have no clue why I failed (maybe I thought I hit that last speed pad, but just missed it?). At least I got my 99 laps trophy...lol. I'll attempt the feat again some other time for sure though...

    I can see another controller coming to a early demise in Western Australia shortly.
