    If you do a lap and come off the end of the bridge with a BR then hit a turbo quickly, press the select button again to give yourself another turbo Before the start line,then quickly use that one,you will be traveling at max speed at the start of a zico attempt lap .
    You still get another turbo as you start a lap to use to do your multiple BR's down the straight.

    It's a sort of "Boost BR Boost" trick for dummies without having to nose up at the start.

    So judging by my 30.85 lap time, I'm doing it absolutely perfectly, and it now just comes down to luck. I swear, I just CANNOT do that third barrel roll in the beginning anymore. It used to be so easy! I'm getting sick of Piranha... I unlocked all of the skins just by trying to beat Zico...

    You should try with the Fury Piranha if you haven't. The additional stats could help. Also, if "that third barrel roll at the beginning" is the one on the bridge, it's the hardest. Keep trying until you nail it on one of your laps and you have Zico for sure by then. If not, work on the rest of your line.

    I thought that Zico himself used only two barrel rolls to get his time? Saw it somewhere in the Zico-is-popular thread, whatever the exact name of that thread is.

    Zico is tough no doubt! I still haven't been able to best my time of 31.02 and that was with a side shift onto the bridge not a barrel roll. I can never land the barrel roll on the bridge it's like a 1/20 shot for me to do so I managed to lower my time by side shifting onto the bridge instead of the roll, don't know if anyone else has tried this and had it work to any effect.

    you can beat zico with three barrelrolls. i know this for a fact because i never managed to the the BR onto the overpass. eventually after numerous laps i maneged a 30.65 with just the double on the straight and the one off the overpass. the rest is about sideshift, pitch, racing lines e.t.c.

    @Lance:
    two on the other hand? damn that i got to see to believe lol.

    You're really close, just work on your lines a little bit more! Take those turns just a smidgin' tighter! It can be done without sideshift - I got 30.68 or 69 with 14 speed pads, 4 barrel rolls, no sideshifts
