Wuhu Mountain Loop (Maka Wuhu)

There is a massive glitch just after the section line on Section 2. You might want to save a mushroom for it. There is a fence here - U-turn around it and drive into the lake. (If you have a Shroom, use it.) Lakitu drops you off near the line for Section 3 - that's about 30 seconds knocked off the course. Great for Time Trials and Grand Prix.

Shortcuts on kalamiri desert

There are two shortcuts on kalamiri desert. The first on is up a ramp on your left just near the starting line and the next one is on ur right after the first one. This is a good way of dodging the trian because you have to wait for the train to go past.

Easy win on Maka Wuhu

If you're in a race on Maka Wuhu, make sure you're low in the standings and try to get a mushroom. Keep racing as usual without losing or using the mushroom until you reach section 2. Make sure you're in front of the cave. There should be a lake to your right (left in mirror mode). Use your mushroom to drive yourself into it. Lakitu will drop you behind the castle, cutting off a major amount of time, but he'll take away up to 3 coins and any other mushrooms in case you had 3. You now drive as usually woud to finish the race, usually giving you first or second (if a faster opponent does the same thing).

When he picks you up, wait until you're dropped then press the acceleration at the exact moment you're dropped onto the track and press on the Y or A button. Time it right and you'll get a Turbo Boost for a short period of time.
