All courses now have time trial leaderboards. Throw down some rad times!

It should be mentioned that the game offers a level select code which is acceptable to use for any of the achievements; however, it will not allow you to unlock "A Truly Rad Racer".

Level select feature: Once you select your vehicle, press the B button X-1 times (X = Track Number). Then, hold Up and Right and press Start.
