    Sol 2


    Close seconds are Chengou Project Reverse shortcut and Sebenco Climb Forward skillcuts (either triple BR going down and into the tunnel, or turbo + BR on tunnel exit)

    I like the ones that work when I want them to.

    I don't like the ones that happen when I wasn't meaning to do one or the ones that don't work but still take shield energy.

    My favorite barrel roll is the one dropping off the overpass in Anulpha Pass, but only from zone 50 and up. It feels realy nice being able to do it (enough energy left) and it gives a massive boost.

    chenghou forward
    after the left inverted bend curve, befor the robot build robot
    i go on the wall and make a BR
    very effective in venom and flash.
    in rapier and phantom, it's better to take the pads...

    of course, the same on Sol2 is possible...

    but the one i like the most is on metropia reverse, before the magstrip
    it requieres control to not hit the outter wall, and i try to get the double, and triple found by our friend pirhapac...

    My favourite BRs are -

    The one on AP rev when you get a boost and use it just after the start finish line and you can pull off a BR.

    After the last corner on rev Vink, use a boost there (by 2 speed pads) and make that into a BR.

    Finding Brs on sol2 rev Zone was fun !!

    I like barrel rolling anywhere but i guess my favourites are :

    On metropia reverse, the hill just before the finish line. Barrel rolling of that and over someone to steal their position is so satisfing .

    Again on metropia reverse, on the straight after the finish line, turbo over the 3 speed pads and pitch and you can barrel roll and this leads into the br just before the mag strip. Its not easy to do but so fast when you pull it off, alot of fun.

    Sebenco rev, the jump straight after the first corner. Cant set a good time without it

    The pads are faster even on venom & flash, but the one you can pull on the little bump just after this little section (in the right turn http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MApEiE7g3Mk ) is efficient, but hard to control on phantom

    My favourite is boosting out of the tunnel on Vineta K forward, and barrel-rolling to the finish line.

    I'm too hyped to work - need to get home and sleep, wake up, go to work, go home and fury.

    One of my favourites is Ubermall reverse, you can pretty much cut over the second chicane on Phantom (no Turbo needed), fitting in a barrel roll as you go over it, then as you go over the hill, execute a second BR. Or the first downhil corner on Vineta K reverse. Trying to keep your line while executing a BR makes it a little more exciting. Or even the last bend on Chengou reverse after the hairpin, just getting a little air on top of the hill to get a BR from it.

    I think the most satisfying ones to be honest are the ones you can get on practically flat land, where you used to think it wasnt possible to do them. Propping your nose up at just the right place as you go over a little bump in the track, and getting barely enough air to execute one but landing it is far more satisfying!

    Here is what is possibly my 2nd favourite (18 seconds into the video):
    http://www.wegame.com/watch/WOHD_SRs_2nd_Fav_BR_Probs/

    I'll try to get a video of my favourite as it's a bit hard to explain and people will probably think I mean a different one if I try.
