    Don't worry mate, 340 laps were only on the 0 rolls attempts. I think I've run over 10.000 laps on Anulpha in total.
    But indeed lines are just as important as barrel rolls. The longer you play, the better they get.

    Now my time is at 30.89. That was with three barrel rolls. And it happened on lap 97 of the latest time trial. I had a 31.03 on lap 82.

    I don't think I can get four BRs in the same lap again. I'll just try to tighten up my lines and sideshift a little more. I freaked out when I beat my 30.92 ghost and the computer voice said "new lap record."

    This trophy is making me angry. But even though it is a miserable one to earn, I personally think Elite Campaign Legend and Arcade Perfect were far worse. ECL requires you to be good at a ton of tracks and a ton of events. AP requires you to win on tracks you may not be good at in general (ummm...Chenghou Project reverse, Ubermall reverse, anything with Sol 2, etc.). At least with this track, each lap can be finished in under 35 seconds, so you can easily retry.

    Hmmm, this was pretty easy for me; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEj1JIbsY2U
    Don't really see what the problem is, the double roll is maybe the hardest part, but that technique works flawless for me most of the times (second technique)

    @zzonk: don't overplay it. you'll learn from every game mode and speedclass. and the real learning process is when you sleep. i.e. if you run 400 laps a day with 50 good laps and the rest bad. your brain spent to much on processing the bad laps.

    read nofew's post in the videos section. page 280 post #2797 (sorry can't link directly) it's a long post on mental learning.

    @ mietepiet: with pirahna you'll always loose time in the first corner due to the worse handling stats compared to icaras. the trick with this particular event is to maintain speed as much as possible. if that means you have to take a not so obvious line, then do so! you must hit all 17 speedpads too! dont use the airbrakes, just use sideshifts instead.

    I did it. I finally did it. Finally.

    On my latest session this afternoon, I got a 30.88. That was frustrating. But I noticed that my racing line on the overpass was ragged. It wasn't a straight line at all. So I figured that I could shave a little more time off if I could keep up with that ghost and drive as straight as possible there.

    On lap 75, it finally happened. I kept up with that ghost and edged ahead of it at the overpass by keeping my ship straight.

    Final result: 30.79 seconds with 3 BRs. That's it, that's all, I'm not doing this anymore. No more speed laps, no more Piranha, and no more crazy barrel rolls. Back to zone mode I go!

    And I am now a member of the Transcendence club!

    congrats zzonk, welcjome to the trans-club. we're oposite: I loved beating Zico and got frustrated on the zone zeus. one time I missed it by 0.01sec. it took me another week to get it. did it op syncopia though, still want to reach it on anulpha.

    as for the 0br attempts: no improvement on time yet, since i was working on the 2 lefts. got the 1st corner good now, no more airbrake on entering. and you're right maintaining speed is the key. need to work on consistancy now and get rid of the little corrections. gonna use pirhana to get sub 31, and from there may be change to icaras.

    Great news, Zzonkmiles.
    On the other hand, still we don't know if KronicReaper (the topic creator) has made it too.

    Congrats Zzonkmiles!!! Im 2 trophies away from Transcendence now. Still need to get Zone Zeus (Zone mode hurted mah eyes >.< so fast, such intense, much speed, very colour, wow) and obviously Beat Zico. Having an utter nightmare with Beat Zico. In need of better lines more than anything, I've got all the necessary BRs down pretty good. Im determined to have it before my bday.
