    Jason - Connavar is right - taking the corners as tight as possible (without contacting, over steering, or airbraking) is KEY. I've had laps with all barrel rolls but bad lines - that gave me a slower time than a lap with GOOD lines and missed BRs.

    I was trying this over the weekend, I'm down to 30.86! it's a killer. I'm sure if I do another session I will get the time though. Tried about 30 laps last night and got around the 30.90 mark so I'm quietly confident.

    It's really all about my line now, it's never tight enough when I come off the pads at the start (when I hit them all that is). My line from the three speed pads all the way to the overpass jump is dire and the barrel roll on the overpass jump is 50/50 at this stage.

    Is it possible to complete zico without that BR roll onto the skybridge?

    not sure, it bags you quite a lot of time. you could try and get your lines perfect and turbo onto the bridge instead but i don't know if that'll be fast enough.

    I think it is possible to Beat Zico and not do the roll onto the bridge by sideshifting instead of turning and tight lines.

    I normally use the D-pad to control but found the barrel roll onto the bridge easier with the analogue, in fact, I found it a lot easier generally to BR with the stick.

    I found the best way to roll onto the overpass was really tight to the left hand side and then you seem naturally to go right. Go as far right as poss and turn 45 degrees left, I pull down and then hope like feck that it works.

    Have to say that Beating Zico was a proud moment especially after a 30.83 4 laps previously. I really thought after that lap I'd never do it but got a 30.69 in the end I think.

    That and Zone Zeus have been the hardest trophies (so far) to get. 50 online kills is hard for different reasons for me.

    really? the stick? i find it so much less consistent. each to his own though. i got desperate so i ended up using two fingers on the pad, one left, one right. i'm pretty sure it's doable without the bridge BR if you get 3 from the turbo as opposed to just 2. i'll have a go this weekend

    Yep, I did it that way. Doing the barrel roll onto the 'skill cut' was just bugging me off to bad

    Sweet. I might try that. So 2 BR on that jump into the dip, and one off the skybridge, so 3. Is that even possible... I guess you got it. Did you happen to knock it up in 3 or 4 BRs? Cause i can only seem to find 3 with your good strategy.

    i'm not sure if it's that much faster but you can chain 3 from the turbo jump. it's in an earlier post in the thread.
    http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=O877da...eature=related this shows the x3 chain but it might be faster to just do 2 and get the lines/float perfect. hope this helps.
