Yeah, that was actually my first attempt on that track. That explains why the first lap wasn't as good as the second two (even though it was still on par with the ghost). I wasn't actually steaming over it, it's just that a 0.001 second loss is pretty funny.

Is there a quick reference guide for the best combos of karts+wheels+gliders?

I also have my bones with the Rainbow Road tracks. Easily had firsts on every other 50cc track except those. Still finished first in the cup but wanted three stars in all of those and have to replay.

There's a chart of the hidden stats here...

Above, I posted a snap shot of my race results against a ghost...

It also shows what I was using. This has been my setup for a while now. Bowser is heavy but one of the fastest characters. I've been liking that since I can knock people out of the way. The Pipe Frame kart is one of the fastest, but I've been switching between that and the Sport Bike. They have the same stats, so it's just a preference of how you wanna power slide. There might be better tires and sails to use, but that's all I have available right now (there might be better things to unlock still, but things unlock at random iirc). I chose to have a faster top speed and sacrifice a little acceleration. I think that really maters when racing 150cc.

Yeah, I vaguely remember another meat, too. It was like "meatbags" or something.

You're getting it all wrong.

He's Schwarzenegger, you're Danny DeVito.
He's Joe Dredd, you're Rico Dredd.
