Default Times To Unlock All Expert Staff Ghosts & Videos

This topic contains unlock times for every Expert Staff Ghost on all 32 tracks in the game, along with their replay videos.

What are Expert Staff Ghosts?
Expert Staff Ghosts are extremely good times set by the developers within the Time Trial mode. To unlock them, you must beat the Normal Staff Ghosts (no need to unlock) on Time Trial by several seconds, ranging from 3 seconds to as much as 10 seconds. They add an extra layer of challenge to the game, show some advanced strategies for stages (such as using the N64 Mario Raceway pipe as a trick ramp) and unlock additional karts and characters.

What are the unlockables?

There are two types of unlockables - one is simply setting a time, and the other is by unlocking an Expert Staff Ghost. There are no unlockables for beating an Expert Staff Ghost. Note that you may need to restart the game once you have done the requirements for them to unlock (I did all of them in one session and the next time I booted up the game the unlock screens displayed).

Magikruiser (Small Bike) - Set times on 8 different courses
Birdo - Set times on 16 different courses
Toadette - Set times on 32 different courses

Funky Kong - Unlocked 4 Expert Staff Ghosts
Baby Luigi - Unlocked 8 Expert Staff Ghosts
Torpedo (Large Bike)- Unlocked 12 Expert Staff Ghosts
B Dasher Mk 2 (Medium Kart) - Unlocked 24 Expert Staff Ghosts
Mii Outfit B - Unlocked all 32 Expert Staff Ghosts

What character and kart did you use to unlock them?
Whatever suits you best. I thought it would be interesting to do them all with the same karts - I used Mario and Standard Kart M for 30 tracks, and then Wild Wing for DS Yoshi Falls and Turbo Blooper for GBA Shy Guy Beach (which I found a little tricky).

Times and Videos
Below is every track, with three times and a video link. The Normal Staff Ghosts are the standard already unlocked ghost times that give you a guide as how to get a decent time. The Unlock Time is the _approximate_ time to unlock the Expert Staff Ghost. These are the times I achieved that unlocked each Expert Staff Ghost, but could be higher by a few milliseconds to a second or two, as we do not know the exact unlock time. Either way, if you beat the time I got, you'll get it. The Expert Staff Ghost time is the time they set in the replay, which is what the videos are of - showing what it takes to beat them and displays their tactics in case you are wondering how to whittle your time down.

What you can do
Compare your unlocked times with mine - if they are slower, then post it. That way we can get closer and closer to the proper unlock times, and update the topic at an appropriate point.

Good job on the thread.
I was just about to add the times to the FAQ so this saved me a lot of trouble.
