Boost

At the end of every lap the player is given one boost. This boost may be used at any time during a game (by pressing L button+R button or Up dpad, depending on the selected control layout). A boost will dramatically increase a player's speed, but will decrease their ability to turn. A boost used before a jump will make the player jump farther, allowing the player to use a shortcut.

Turning

There are different ways to turn your vehicle without hitting the wall: L button or R button slide the vehicle in each direction and tapping the acceleration button (A button or B button depending on the selected control layout) rapidly makes turning considerably easier. This is important because the courses in the game contain many sharp turns, sometimes 180 degrees.
