    @ Mike458 i got my ZicoT. after 600 laps spreded throug 2 years of playing , it was not easy since i just started playing online (was 20ish rank or something ) my effort was enormous but nothing helped..... when i came back from holiday after almost 5 weeks absence ive beat crap out of this trophy ;;;

    Just play online , craft your skills and when you will see some progress try to beat it ,if that dont help take some break , relax your mind meaby that will help ,who knows ,worth to try. sometimes less is more

    Pitching to make your ship "bouncing", a good timing for the boost and a good line is the key. Try something like pitching up then down and then up again before boosting. And boost while the nose of your ship is reaching his "highest position". Also, don't br too quickly, stay pitching up a little more before barrel rolling. And slightly press the left airbreak while barrel rolling to corrected your line if needed.
    I hope it will help you, good luck

    I have broken three controllers, two TV screens (projector TV screens), a projector, a PS3, and a computer screen all in my futile efforts to try and get this trophy."

    Seriously?!! That's too much!
    You should do a break when u start getting too much frustrated.
    And like possessed13 said, practice online against good players first. Try again only when you'll feel enough comfortable on that track, it will make it easier.
    Don't get mad trying to beat Zico, just try yo enjoy the game

    WOW, that cost you quite a bit I imagine

    I got Zico trophy totally by accident when I was teaching a friend how its possible to BR in places where none are obvious.

    Didn't break anything, except Zico's time. lucky me.

    First Platinum attempt, it probably took me around 80+ laps after having beat the campaign. Second play-through, I got it on the 2nd try.

    The moral of the story is that if you are trying specifically to just Beat Zico, you will wind up being really good at Venom Anulpha Pass speedlaps. Barrel rolling in general requires practice, and the whole mechanics of it are worth taking time to understand. Once you get a good grip on barrel rolls, and turbo barrel rolls, you will be able to view the track in a different way. A barrel roll is worth about 1.5 seconds, but a well placed sideshift can be worth 0.5 seconds, and each speed pad hit is worth around 0.3-0.4 seconds. It is possible to beat Zico without landing the hard track split roll, but only first by being well rounded in all aspects of control. Lines matter too.

    Beating Zico can be done numerous ways, with numerous different rolls. If you are struggling with beating Zico, I would advise doing some other races, or other speed laps. There are few pilots that have beat Zico that haven't first put their time in to master mechanics. Fundamentals make all the difference.
