    There are only a few "short cut's" per se.

    1st on Chenghou reverse, you need a Turbo to do it.[Rapier & Phantom speed]

    You can BR while doing it for a extra boost once landed, you need to side shift left to pull it off successfully though, not easy at phantom speed.

    Ubermall Forward
    There are 2, the fist can only be done at Phantom speed with a turbo, the second at pretty much any speed with a turbo.[See video]

    Ubermall Reverse.
    You need a turbo and balls of steel to attempt this, not to mention perfect aiming of your crafts nose.
    Can be done from Flash speed [you really need to side shift to position yourself to do it at such slow a speed and turbo late], Rapier & Phantom speed all depends on the timing, Time Trials really get you perfecting it.

    PS: Don't worry about hitting the outside of the ramps wall.

    You actually don't need a turbo for it...Aim for that arm on the side of the track and side-shift right,it isn't as effective as the turbo one,but you can save the turbo for the last straight into the finish line,theres an almost-invisible bump there,boost and nose up,barrel roll at your own risk

    It works in any class,even on Zone's Sub-venom

    Why restrict yourself to sub-venom ? It really works for about any zone, you may just want to get off the track slightly earlier as you progress in speed. I'm still looking for a way to br without hitting the walls (and missing SP if possible) on the open section of Sol 2 rev without boost around the 40s-50s. I managed one, but I didn't manage to replicate it, getting the right pitch as you exit the track is really hard imo.

    the most rewarding one and also most difficult one is this one on Sol 2

    pira is insane for making it so many times in a row

    Oh and D it works pretty much the same way in every class the only thing thyat really changes is the timing and angle I only have an example in phantom but if you understand how it's done there you can do it in every class essentially.

    Exclamation

    That's a heck of a shortcut! Never would think of it...

    I know,I know,it works in any class,i used the example as Sub-Venom to tell you can be painfully slow,it will still work if you do it right

    Great thread, some of the greats are a tad secretive.
