Default Maple Treeway

Hello

I've been playing Maple Treeway lately and I just can't beat the Expert Staff. I need to be about 2 seconds faster to beat it.

As you might know, the world record is even 17 second faster than the expert. That's really a lot.

I compared the WR side by side with the expert staff and I must say there is no specific point where the world record is faster, he's just faster everywhere.

I just can't understand this. When I pick the same bike and the same character and do a wheelie on a straight part of the track just like the WR I can't ever seem to reach the same speed.

Is there some kind of secret I'm missing? Is he really 17 seconds faster just by "playing better", just by pressing the buttons more accurately at the right moment?

Thanks!!

yes , he is just by playing better.
theres plenty of other things than just wheeling on the straight , learn how to do them correctly by watching the WR and your time will get lower

Well, it's not just wheelie. I try to do 2 drift turbos in a long curve, I do the stunts, and I try to take the same path as the WR but I'm 20 seconds behind.

Is there any way one can see *exactly* when he's using a drift turbo, and the other tricks? I mean there are speed ups on the ground everywhere it's hard to tell just by looking at the exhaust pipe.

Taking the WR-path as accurately as possible and doing drifts+wheelie+stunts when the WR does is all I can think of doing. Is that the recipe of being that much faster?

What's the most important thing to consider?

its pretty much all there is to it . if you're losing that much time theres obviously a lot of things you're doing wrong , or not right enough

You can take the shortcut. Maybe that'll lower your time.

But- make sure you have a kart/bike that has good offroad speed and handling. When I play on Maple Treeway, I always use the Magikruiser. It gets you through the rough terrain at the beginning of the shortcut fast. And the shortcut has two speed boosts in it, so it saves a lot of time. Trust me, when I take it, I go from about 10th to 1st. It's a garunteed time saver. Just incase you don't know where the shortcut is, here's a video on it.
