Level skip in Koopa Beach 2

Sent in by Lucky Luigi In Koopa Beach 2 in Special Cup, do one full lap. Slow down before you cross the finish line. When you do cross the finish line, turn and align with it and drive straight for the water. Use L or R to get a good jump into the water. You will go under, but go straight. Right as Lakitu's shadow is forming over the water, turn left. Keep going until he catches you. When he does, he'll carry you over the finish line and it will count as a lap.

Water Hop

Sent in by Lucas Skywalker and Tommy Calrissian When on water (especially on Vanilla Lake 1 and 2), repeatedly press L and R. This will cause you to water hop (note that this can only happen a short time you'll fall in when time runs out).

Ghost Valley 3 tip

Sent in by Jeff On Ghost Valley 3, keep going and pick up either a Koopa Shell or a banana peel for this trick. Keep going until you turn a corner. When you turn it, you should see 3 coins, go through the middle one and drop the Koopa Shell (Down + A) or drop the banana peel. It has to be right where the middle coin was. (For a good guess, leave the other coins alone.) If your aim was right, the person behind you should ram into it and spin out, and for a funny after effect, if you watch the bottom of your screen in 1P mode, you should see them spin, and than start off, stop and drop down from above, in other words, they fell off the track after they ran into your item!

Ghost Valley jump

Sent in by Jarvis McCloud On the last Ghost Valley in the special cup, there is a secret jump, just get a feather from the question boxes and it's on the right side a second later. No kidding, right? Well, you don't actually need the feather. If your going fast, hug the left side of the track, and turn hard without skidding right before the hole on that side. Use the R or L button to jump it without a feather. Try to get as close to being perpendicular to the edge and you'll make it every time.

Mario Circuit 2 tip

Sent in by Dongwan In Mario Circuit 2, there is a big jump. Try to put a banana peel right on the jump. The next racer who runs over the jump (and banana peel) should fall right through into the race and virtually have to start the lap all over again.

Race against a ghost

Sent in by Brian Nerrie In time trial, at the kart select screen, press Y, X, B, and A at the same time to race against a ghost.

Race against a ghost manually

Sent in by Brian Nerrie To race against a ghost manually, finish a track in time trial without going off the track or hitting a wall.

Get rid of red shells

Sent in by Brian Nerrie In GP or battle mode an easy way to get rid of red shells trailing you is to lay a green shell or banana peel behind you right before the shell hits you.

Shell speed

Sent in by Brian Nerrie The shell speed depends on how fast you are going when you fire it.

Red shell tip

Sent in by Brian Nerrie Another way of getting out of the way of red shells (if it is going fast) is to ride up against the wall.

Lightning bolt tip

Sent in by Brian Nerrie If you were hit by a lightning bolt, run into a poison mushroom and you will grow bigger.

Super jump tip

Sent in by Brian Nerrie If you use a mushroom right before the super jump in Mario Trak 2, you'll go a lot farther off the jump.

Feather tip in battle mode

Sent in by Brian Nerrie If you have a feather and you use it to evade a weapon, don't jump over the railing because your opponent can get another weapon and fire it on you as soon as you land.

Battle stage 2 tip

Sent in by Brian Nerrie In battle stage 2, you can use a feather to get the question marks in the pools.

Erase your memory

Sent in by Kyle At the start of the game (when the music comes on at the introduction) press and hold Y, X, L, R, and press Start. A menu will come up asking if you would like to erase your memory of all the new races or trophies you may have won. You can now start the whole game over.

Batle mode tip

Sent in by Michael Bender When you know that your opponent has a red shell ready to fire at you and you have a banana peel, you can simple drop the banana peel when he fires the red shell and the red shell will hit your banana peel.

Battle Mode Course 2 trick

Sent in by Carl Best There is a useless, but interesting trick that you can do in Battle mode course 2. Have one player stop as close to the middle of the course as possible, then have the other player pick up a red shell. Next, the player with the red shell should get going as fast as possible on a path that will take them past the player that is stopped in the middle. just as you pass him, shoot the red shell. If you are going fast enough, the timing is just right and you are the correct distance to the side of the other player as you pass, the red shell will begin to circle the other player! We've gotten as many as 4 red shells going around this way.

Speed-up start

Sent in by Carl Best The best way to get a speed-up start is to wait for first beep of the timing lights to end at that instant hold the button down and keep it down. This seems to work with any racer you use. Play with the timing a little and you will eventually figure it out. I've been able to sometimes get a fast start in every race of a cup series this way.

Bowser tip

Sent in by Gavin Baker Don't be discouraged to get Bowser because of his slow start. He is unbeatable with my friend because after a little bit he starts going fast.

Short cuts

Sent in by F-29 Retaliator Man On the Rainbow Road (last round in special cup) you can make a super leap from where the road splits in two, by hitting the jump. Where's the jump you ask? Well I'll tell you). Get a Mushroom, right before the split in the road use the mushroom, then turn hard to the right, the jump is in front of the hole in the middle of the road. If done right, you will launch yourself over the finish line and keep going with a high top speed (until you slow down).
Sent in by Dave Phillips In Ghost Valley 1, you can hop over the edge towards the finish line without a feather. All you need is a Mushroom from the item box. When you get close to the ledge use your mushroom and press L or R and you will fly over. NOTE: if your not accurate you will fall of the edge.
On the Mario Circuit 2 course (last course in the Mushroom Cup), get a mushroom. As you approach the jump, use the mushroom. This will give you some added speed as you hit the jump. Pull hard to the left as you go over the jump. If you timed it right, your racer will go flying off the screen and land right in front of the finish line.
Sent in by Steve On Ghost Valley 1, it is possible to make the secret leap without a feather or mushroom, but by simply pressing 'R' or 'L.' To do this, you must have at least 10 coins and be going at top speed, preferably with Bowser or DK Jr. Hit 'R' just before you fall off the cliff, and you'll barely make the jump to the secret path.
Sent in by Tom In Vanilla Lake 2 line up with the starting line facing the water Right before you go in press L or R and go in the water When Latiku is just coming down to get you, turn left and you will trick the game into thinking that you did a lap.
Sent in by F-29 Retaliator There are five steps on getting across the lake on "Donut Plains 2" (the third round in the flower cup). #1 Get a mushroom. #2. After the question blocks, there is a turn to the left, then a turn to the right, and finally an extremely hard turn to the left... you must turn hard to the left on the first turn (you'll be directly facing the lake). #3. Use the mushroom. #4. When you get to the lake, hop (L or R) right before you go into the water. #5. The force of the water will enable you to go straight across the lake.... If you did it wrong, then your car will be dunked in the middle of the lake.
Sent in by Gavin Baker In Ghost Valley 1, if you get the feather, use it to jump across towards the end. You should see a ramp not connected to the side you were previously on, and if you land right it can be used as a shortcut. If not used right, you will fall off.
Sent in by Mark Matt Donut Plains 3 The first race of the Special Cup. Winning this course is very difficult at 150cc. Something that makes it a little easier is this little trick. You need to get a mushroom from the item boxes. There is a break in the second wood bridge which you have to hop. The road then curves hard to the left. Just as the road is curving hard to left use your mushroom and turn 'slightly' to the left. If you do it properly, you will go over top the water and wall. You will come out right before the finish line. You will have skipped over half the track. It takes some practice, I learned it by accident. *You must turn slightly to the left before/as using the mushroom*
Sent in by Killerkid On Rainbow Road (on Special Cup), There is a shortcut near the end of the race, but you need a mushroom for it to work. Once you get a mushroom, go around until you come to the part where the track splits in two. Then about two Kart lengths away, use the mushroom, and just as you hit the bumper, turn sharply to the right. If it is done right, you should end up a little past the comp rocks, giving you an extra thirteen seconds off.
Sent in by Bryan Dann When you play Bowser's Castle 2 in the Flower Cup, there is a dead end road that says STOP! If you have a mushroom, or a feather. You can jump over the lava and the wall on the other side, but you can't touch any walls because you have to be going full speed. If you have to, you can slide around the corner, that way you can still be going full speed.
Sent in by Dan Zarrow In Chocolate Island 2, in the Star Cup, you can take a little shortcut. You need a mushroom or a star to get the most out of this trick. After crossing the Start/Finish line, use the mushroom or the star and continue going straight. DO NOT TURN! There is an opening in the wall where you should zoom through the rough chocolate and hopefully zoom into the lead!
Sent in by Kyle When you make it to the Special Cup at Vanilla Lake 2 jump in the water by pressing L or R. When Lakitu comes to pick you up, press and hold the left button. You now are on the next lap.
Sent in by Travis Rea On Ghost Valley 1 in the mushroom cup slow down after the second turn and point towards the jump with the mystery block behind it on the left. Go over the first bump and then use a mushroom if you have one. you will jump the gap between the two roads and land on the bump right before the shortcut. Aim your kart towards the shortcut and if you did it right you will land on the shortcut jumping entire track almost you can move from last to first immediately. Trust me it can be done okay! Keep trying it and practice on a verses match by yourself being able to get all the mystery blocks at your leisure.
Sent in by Surveyor To add to the tip above, all you have to do is use the mushroom while sliding (spinning left) and hit a plant (the big green circle on the ground) to skip over half the track.
