Car Setup TipsPay attention to the Machine Setting graph before racing. Each F-Zero racer can be customized by moving the slider to the left or the right.
Acceleration / Left-Balanced:
Move the line to the left to balance the car for quick turning. This setting is appropriate for technical courses with many sharp turns and few long straights. The car will boost off the start much faster and perform better while drifting. When using a car balanced for acceleration, use the drift turn technique (press L and R while turning) to prevent speed loss in corners.
Top Speed / Right Balanced:
Move the line towards the right to balance the car for faster top speeds. This setting is best for courses with long straights (or pipes) and few sharp turns. The car doesn't drift as well and has lower acceleration after impacts or from the start line. Use the slide turn technique to navigate around corners (press R while turning right, L while turning left) and follow the apex of the curve for best results.

GarageWhen you are in the garage, don't pay attention to the part rating. What you want to pay attention to is the chart at the bottom right. The larger the section graphed, the better the vehicle. I have found that what you want to go for is max speed and grip. With these settings, you will be ahead of the crowd.

Lateral ShiftingThis tip is best achieved on the "lateral shift" level. While driving, aim at the inside of any of the blind corners, just to the outside of the posts. You would normally fall off, but if you push back towards the middle of the track at the last second, you will fly across the gap and receive a large boost when you land on the road. When you first try this, instead of turning back towards the middle of the track, use the L and R buttons to drift in the right directions. This is easier than actually turning the ship, but the boost will be slightly smaller. This trick can be done on any course with any vehicle, but the custom "scud spider z" seems to be very fast and not too difficult, whilst some are nearly impossible. This trick can knock about 5-7 seconds off the first lap alone on this particular course, hence the trick's name.
