|Koopa Troopa Beach||1:57.0|
This trick is very useful in battle mode, versus mode, and grand prix. While controlling your character, drive into an item box and immediately pause the game as soon as the items start to change in the box. The roulette action of the items will stop. Resume the game and immediately press Z or C-Down. The box will usually stop on the item after the item that was displayed on the pause screen.
Mario 64 castle
Follow the yellow road to the right of the big jump on the Royal Raceway course to reach the castle from Mario 64.
Press A to accelerate at the instant between the dimming of the second light and the flashing of the blue light at the start of the race. Performed correctly, your kart will rapidly accelerate ahead of the other racers. Note that accelerating too soon will result in a spin out.
After falling off a course, watch as Lukita places your kart back on the track. Press A when your kart is two or three tire widths from the track to immediately resume the race.
Turn off music
Press L during game play to make the music softer. Do it again to turn off the music completely. Do it once more and the music will be back on. A sound will confirm correct code entry.
