Turbo Boost at Start of Race

  • 3DS

To get a turbo boost at the start of a race do not hold the acceleration button down before the countdown starts. Wait until just after the number 2 in the countdown stops spinning and then hold down the A or Y button. If done correctly you will receive a turbo boost as soon as the race starts.

Turbo Boost After Lakitu Retrieval

  • 3DS

If you fall off the track or get stuck somewhere for more than a couple moments Lakitu comes to pull you out and place you on the track again. 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.

Turbo Boost at Bouncing Music Notes Section in Music Park Track

  • 3DS
  • unlock

Near the end of the Music Park Track there is a segment where these Musical Notes bounce up and down every few seconds. When these Musical Notes bounce they make the ground around them tremble and if they manage to make you bounce it will cause you to lose speed. If you time it correctly and press the R Button right when you are bounced you will get a Turbo Boost for a short period of time.
