    That video didn't really help me, other than the fact that it showed me that I didn't need to hit all the boosts at maximum speed to finish within the time limit.

    So what I decided to do was to just hold A through most of the boosts (i.e. get purple flames). If I let go of A to get the extra boost speed (i.e. green flames) then I would overshoot the corners and lose all my speed turning around. I tried it a few times only letting go of A for the 2nd boost because that boost ends and you slow down before having to turn. But I kept messing other things up on the final lap such as bumping into a wall or missing a boost, and I never quite beat the dev time with only green flames on the 2nd boost. Eventually I felt in control enough to start also getting green flames on the 1st boost, but quickly pressing A again to cut it a little short. And with that I was able to do it.

    I think the key thing for me was to always only take the purple boost on the final boost of the lap. Otherwise I'd go too fast in the wrong direction and lose all my speed turning toward the finish line.
