    It is a hard trophy and i spent hours trying to achieve it... but after a Wipeout vet gave me some tips it took 5 mins to achieve. but all those hours i spent weren't wasted. they just helped me master the game.

    Sadly, not even his tutorial has brought me closer to beat Zico in the end, despite my valiant efforts. I should thank him for that, though. xP

    I think there's a video where it shows how to beat zico without using any BR's...

    klocki lego's way, no br's at all (whaaat?) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJVV06RUom0

    Yeldars way (no br onto the bridge) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QKoiR-W-DU

    It probably took me about 700 laps of serious practice before I finally squeaked by with 30.79. One thing that I will emphasize is the importance of using sideshifts. If you turn your ship by using the direction buttons, you will lose speed. So try to minimize your turns and use more sideshifts. I think 3 BRs are all you need if your lines are tight enough.

    Tried it with sideshifts, still ended up with 30.89.

    You might want to try tightening your racing line, so cut to the apex's as close as possible with sideshifts to straighten your line. it should conserve your speed and just shave off that little bit of time.

    plus remember, if you get airborne, try to spend as little time in the air as possible as wind resistance will slow you down. So manage your pitch well.

    The best advice I could give is to try the different methods out there until you find the method that works best for you.

    All you can do is practice, practice and practice more, do this and the more your skill will develop. I found once I got this trophy after those 429 laps, I was hammering the elite AI by 6+ seconds.

    Don't give up, just keep trying, you have nothing to lose

    Hahaha, man, I laughed with your story haha, it was funny. But, talking seriously, you have to practice, and when I say practice, I'm talking about 200, 300, or even more than 400 laps. I don't remember how many I did (it was the last year) but I'm sure there were more than 400. I know you saw tutorials in youtube, but you really "saw them"? I mean, the way they make their way, the way they make their BRs, etc. But the most important thing in this trophy is the number of BRs you make during the lap. Many people can make a lot of BRs in one lap, but you have to make the maximum number, and you want to know which is the most important and hard BR? That one in the last curve, before jumping to the bridge.

    Now go and watch those tutorials, and if you really want this fu**ing record, you have to learn, and practice ^^
