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.

I got an inaccurate time on Sunset Coast. There's no way I beat it in 2:35.

That I'm not sure of. It's labelled Rad Racer 1 (USA)

What has happened to the course times? I want to call shenanigans.

Yeah, things look strange since 2021... I'll investigate.

I need help with the High Speed Collisiion achievement. How do you get this? Even running at 255 MPH and hitting the back of the slow cars (the ones that come at you faster) I can't crash. Any tips on it? Any stages I should be more aware of the possibility?
1 Jun 2022

It has to be really slow cars, especially start showing up in stage 5 where you'll see them and then you pass them in all of about a second. They're going so much slower that if you slam into the back of them, it acts as hitting something and flipping your car. Hope this helps?
