Post your best times on Bowser Castle 1 with the required kart parts here so I can attempt to beat them. Need all the training I can get.

Let's start out strong, then. I just got 1:19:070, beating my previous record of 1:19.093. Apparently, the game does not want me to get under 1:19...

As always, pics or it didn't happen. So, pic ^^

Edit: Decided to have one more go at it, and look what happened! Not much better, but it just feels like a world of difference xD

I expected to see a lot more people here discussing this. Anyway, my best time so far is 1:18.369.

1:17.xxx is definitely possible. My best times for each lap (in completed runs with good overall times) are 27.003, 25.203, and 25.643, which comes out to 1:17.849. I've even gotten a couple sub-27's on lap 1, and I should be able to match my lap 2 time on lap 3, since they're nearly identical. My 1:18.369 run may have actually been 1:17.xxx but I missed the final mini-turbo right after coming out of the glider :(

I think I'm doing pretty well for someone who barely played any MK7 and just started practicing a couple days ago :)

That's nice! But I've also been improving my time ^^

But if you want more people to talk to, more times to see, some videos to watch, the place to go is here:

Apparently this is where the World Record pursuers go to talk about stuff. It's a good place to go with questions. I'm on there as IvoryKeys. That's really the only thread I've seen anywhere talking about the qualifier seriously aside from this one, so it's definitely worth a look.

Nice times! I didn't get to practice yesterday, I'm looking forward to improving my time today. Which qualifier will you be attending?

I'll check out that site, thanks for the link.

I'll be attending Dallas. I'm hoping most of the really good people go to Chicago or LA xD

Just got under 1:18, so I thought I'd post an update. Granted, it's BARELY under—I got 1:17.969—but still. I'll post the video on the thread I linked you to so I can get some tips there.

Even a pic is not proof because of the emergence of hacks, and in some cases glitch shortcuts which in fact this course has (offline only). More like video or it didn't happen. Speaking of which...
