The same track can now be bought at the shop and will appear under the AX Cup. Note: The track will not be immediately available in Gran Prix mode. Unlock all the F-Zero AX tracks to unlock the AX Cup in Gran Prix mode.
To get up to 2000 km/p, you must have booster equipped. Once you get to a booster thats on the track, use boost right when your racer speeds over the booster. This takes practice and a steady eye, so try to keep up. First, use your manual booster. Then release the accelaration until you hit the track booster. If you've done it correctly (in about 1-2 seconds) you should get up to 2000 km/p. To go even faster, use your booster repeatibly.
Every machine can slide, but you will slide way better with any E grip machines(Blood Hawk, Night Thunder etc.). Max acceleration settings. The basic of sliding is actually pretty simple: Turn to the left while holding R, and vice versa when turning right. When you both slide and hold down L/R you will gain speed instead of loosing it. The more you turn your machine the faster it will go (though, don't turn it too much or you will ram into the rail, or even go reverse). It's a lot easier to slide on the long wide curves, where you can angle your machine much more, thus gaining more speed. In the narrow curves you need to keep a steady slide, as you wouldn't want to bump into the rail. Try boosting while sliding.
To use the snake technique, select a heavy car with a high grip rating A like Black Shadow's Black Bull, then set it to max. acceleration. By alternating L and R and turning left and right at the same time, players then drive serpentines and essentially simulate turns on a straightway. But don't just press the buttons in a frenzy, but instead practice it a lot and try to be more calm when executing this technique. Turn left while holding L, then turn right while holding R after you've performed a visible turn. You'll do best on straight wide tracks. Snaking will probably be most welcome in Time Attacks, since any touch from a competing racer will end the technique and it's a perfect way to get revenge on the Staff Ghosts
First you need a very light machine, either use some of the default machines such as the Twin Noritta, or go make your own light costum machine(Paper Craft, Garnet Dragon etc.). Put your setting at max acceleration. If you can't get up in the air by crashing into the rail then Just fall off anywhere you can. Now hold left + L, or right + R, do NOT pull back on the stick like you would in an airplane, or your engine will stall. As you continue to hold left and L, or right and R, you'll trace a tight circle going higher and higher. To move around, fly a half circle left, then a half cirle right. It looks really weird for some reason, it's kind of like your machine is actually flying backwards. On many tracks you'll get retired if you fly around the wrong areas. I would recomend Port Town: Aero Dive for playing around with flying because it appears that you can fly anywhere without getting retired.
