    These are all my shortcuts and short paths that have gotten me great times on
    time trials. I have recently added Second Shaver which is the use of your
    mushrooms that you get to get you the best lap possible. Some of these
    shortcuts I have not been able to do, but are listed as the way the world
    record times have been accomplished with.
    
    Powerslide parts have been newly added to this and I will explain them. There
    are many turns that I have been able to do a powerslide which is to hold "R"
    and change the E's and V's to go from white to yellow to ornage which gives you
    a short speed boost. I will point out where to use them. I have also decided to
    post a guide to follow to get you great times (but not close to WR times) on
    most laps.

    Luigi Raceway:
     Distance: 717m
    
    Shortcuts/Shorter Routes/Glitches:
    1) If you have a star or mushroom you can cut across the sand to shorten you
    overall time.
    
    2) After going around the first loop, you need to be going crazy fast and right
    before you enter the tunnel, you can jump over the wall.
    
    3) At the first turn, use a mushroom and powerslide around the edge of the wall
    on the sand and time your mushrooms perfectly to execute.
    
    Steps to get great times:
     1st Lap:
    Powerstart (Gas after 2nd light dissapears) At the first turn you should get at
    least four PS in and then PS the entrance of the tunnel and PS out of the end,
    at this next turn you can get 3-4 PS in so get as many as you can.
     2nd Lap:
    At the first turn you should get at least four PS in and then PS the entrance
    of the tunnel and PS out of the end, when you come out use your three mushrooms
    when the other is about to run out while PS around the the brick wall of the
    last turn.
     3rd Lap:
    At the first turn you should get at least four PS in and then PS the entrance
    of the tunnel and PS out of the end, at this next turn you can get 3-4 PS in so
    get as many as you can.

    Moo Moo Farm:
     Distance: 527m
    
    Shortcuts/Shorter Routes/Glitches:
    1) If you time yourself right, you can drive straight through the moles at the
    two parts of the level where they appear to shorten your overall time.
    
    Steps to get great times:
     1st Lap:
    Powerstart (Gas after 2nd light dissapears) at this first turn get two PS in
    and keep driving on the low part of the road, you'll do a quick turn to the
    left but just ignore the PS unless you know how, if you don't you will just
    waste time trying to get one in. Do 2-3 PS after you go under that ledge and
    then drive up to the moles and use your mushroom, if you correct you will drive
    right through them when they are down and use your next mushroom on the next
    set, get off and stay to the right where you use your last mushroom to finish
    the 1st lap.
     2nd Lap:
    At this first turn get two PS in and keep driving on the low part of the road,
    you'll do a quick turn to the left but just ignore the PS unless you know how,
    if you don't you will just waste time trying to get one in. Do 2-3 PS after you
    go under that ledge then stay as close as your can to the right side of the
    track and finish the lap.
     3rd Lap:
    At this first turn get two PS in and keep driving on the low part of the road,
    you'll do a quick turn to the left but just ignore the PS unless you know how,
    if you don't you will just waste time trying to get one in. Do 2-3 PS after you
    go under that ledge then stay as close as your can to the right side of the
    track and finish the lap.

    Koopa Troopa Beach:
     Distance: 691m
    
    Shortcuts/Shorter Routes/Glitches:
    1) On 50cc if you have a mushroom you can jump the jump into the cave after the
    three ramps in a row to cut almost half-way through the level. On 100cc you can
    now use a star to jump the gap, and finally if you are using 150cc you don't
    need anything to make the jump but it requires skill.
    
    2) After the underpass take a sharp right and you will see an opening that cuts
    across the bay.
    
    Steps to get great times:
     1st Lap:
    (Gas after 2nd light dissapears), PS the first left turn and the PS the next
    left turn when you go right at the fork. PS twice and hold the second one to
    slide between the rocks and the jump. Drive to the left side of the three jumps
    and if you can manage a PS in this last area then use that to jump the ramp, or
    you can simply use a mushroom. Keep moving once you enter the tunnel and before
    the end start a PS and slide it out, between the trees and around the first
    rock. Then use another PS and then one at the last few jumps on the right side.
     2nd Lap:
    PS the first left turn and the PS the next left turn when you go right at the
    fork. PS twice and hold the second one to slide between the rocks and the jump.
    Drive to the left side of the three jumps and if you can manage a PS in this
    last area then use that to jump the ramp, or you can simply use a mushroom.
    Keep moving once you enter the tunnel and before the end start a PS and slide
    it out, between the trees and around the first rock. Then use another PS and
    then one at the last few jumps on the right side.

    last area then use that to jump the ramp, or you can simply use a mushroom.
    Keep moving once you enter the tunnel and before the end start a PS and slide

    Kalimari Desert:
     Distance: 687m (about)
    
    Shortcuts/Shorter Routes/Glitches:
    1) If you have a star, enter the train tunnel on your 1st or 2nd lap
    and use the star before entering the cave, if done right you will skip ahead to
    the next lap.
    
    2) If you see the train is going to cut you off, you can drive off the track
    and cut across the track to avoid coming to a stop.
    
    3) After you pass the second train crossing, powerslide sharply to the left and
    use all your mushrooms after each other to cut across the valley.
    
    4) You can actually drive right between the train cars but it is very difficult
    to do.
    
    Steps to get great times:
     1st Lap:
    (Gas after 2nd light dissapears), keep moving and stay to the inside of the
    track while doing three PS around the first turn, fade to the right after you
    get past the first crossing and PS the right turn before the second crossing.

    about 3 or so. PS twice more when you get off and then PS at the final
    rightturn and one at the left turn.
     2nd Lap:
    Keep moving and stay to the inside of the track while doing three PS around the

    Yoshi Valley:
     Distance: 772m
    
    Shortcuts/Shorter Routes/Glitches:
    1) Near the end a bit before the egg you will do a little loop, you can
    jump across this to shave some seconds of your time.
    
    2)The shortest route is to go right at the fork, left, right across the
    bridge, and then loop to the left and continue.
    
    3)If you have a star or mushroom use it once you get past the last bridge to
    cut across the grass.
    
    Steps to get great times:
    1st Lap:
    (Gas after 2nd light dissapears) Turn to the left and use a mushroom
    all while PS and then let go of the PS when you enter the main area. Turn right
    then left and then right again as you cross the bridge. Follow the path to the
    left as it curves back around and hit the jump while going to the left. This
    next part is trick but it can be mastered after 50+ attempts. Stay to the right
    and then kinda PS but just use white and try to curve your self the other way
    then press "R" and you can jump across the track and continue. PS along the
    track and go passed the egg, PS when you get out and when you come to the right
    turn use the mushroom and finish the lap.

    Continue and PS the left turn. Turn right then left and then right again as you

    mastered after 50+ attempts. Stay to the right and then kinda PS but just use
    white and try to curve your self the other way then press "R" and you can jump
    across the track and continue. PS along the track and go passed the egg, PS
    when you get out and when you come to the right turn use a PS and then another
    before the finish line.
     3rd Lap:
    Continue and PS the left turn. Turn right then left and then right again as you
    cross the bridge. Follow the path to the left as it curves back around and hit
    the jump while going to the left. This next part is trick but it can be
    mastered after 50+ attempts. Stay to the right and then kinda PS but just use
