    Mario Kart: Super Circuit is the latest game in the Mario Kart series.  It
    features 20 new tracks and the 20 tracks from the original Super Mario Kart. 
    Mario Kart: Super Circuit is one of the best games on the Game Boy Advance. 
    This guide covers the Rainbow Road in the SUPER CIRCUIT tracks NOT the Rainbow
    Road course in the extra circuit tracks.
    
    This guide uses a "code location" system.  This means that there are special key
    codes throughout this guide that can be used to navigate through the large
    amount of text quickly.  The key code numbers for a desired section of this
    guide are located in the Table of Contents.  To jump to an area of the guide
    quickly, simply use the find command (usually Ctrl + F) in Notepad or your web
    browser and enter mksc_#### (where #### is the location code).  I did not invent
    this idea; it has been used on many other text-based gaming guides before.

    so that you know what certain symbols mean.

    The new Rainbow Road is perhaps the coolest course in the game.  In instead of
    having no walls, the track is surrounded by jump plates.  There are tons of
    shortcuts in this level.  There are 50 coins that can be collected in this
    level.

    Strategy
    --------
    
    1) This is your first encounter with a storm cloud in this course.  If you get
    hit by its lightning, your driver will shrink, you'll lose speed and you could
    be squished by bigger opponents.
    
    2) This straightaway contains falling stars.  If a falling star comes in contact
    with your kart, you will spin out.
    
    3) This is a corner where you can use the jump plates to hop the corner of the
    turn.  Simply power-slide into the jump plate before the turn and you'll hop
    over the corner.  Also, the straightaway that is located before this turn
    contains falling stars.  If a star hits you you'll spin out.
    
    4) Go to the left (driver's perspective) to jump onto the straightaway.  It is
    packed with zippers.
    
    5) As you land on this stretch, hit the zipper to the right (driver's
    perspective) and then the one on the right to get more speed.
    
    6) Stick to the left of the course (driver's perspective).  Staying to the left
    makes turning into the row of zippers easier.

    1) Another mushroom boost location.  Power-slide to the right (driver's
    perspective) and boost into the jump plate so that you can land across the gap. 
    This is a big shortcut but it is not bigger then the one in shortcut #1.

    1) This is another area where you can get a shortcut.  To get this shortcut you
    must be in time trial mode and have at least 2 mushrooms available.  First you
    must perform the shortcut on shortcut #1.  Then you must drive backwards through
    the course and boost across the gap at shortcut #2.  This shortcut is good for
    setting lap records.

    1) When you come out of the straightaway packed with zippers, turn to the right
