Just to ask, who here is using stunt mode in their times?
I didn't when I got my time on Black Water Falls. I feel the usage of extra turbos should warrant a "red" time.
Mine ARE using Stunt Mode. It's a non-cheat option in the game, fully accessible by the options menu with no game alteration needed to use it...so i don't see why they should be red. If anything Stunt Mode brings more of a challenge to the racer by seeing how fast you can go without biffing into a tree or something, and adding insult to injury by seeing how good, and how fast you can pull off split second tricks to maintain that blinding speed.
Stunt Mode just really "widens" the horizon on records. For example, when i got 1:30.6 on Suicide Swamp, that was after mabye 30some tries of practice and precise placement..I literally mapped out exactly where to land and everything, would be impossible, and much LESS challenging to get that time without Stunt Mode enabled (and i don't think it's even possible).
There are also some courses where i have Stunt Mode enabled but never use more then the 4 stock turbos given to you, such as Hammerhead and Cliffdiver. If i ever find ways to get more turbos...you bet I'm going to try and break my record.
My point is guys...turn on Stunt Mode and give yourself a better (and more difficult) challenge! It's a fully stock and legit option in the game (as you all know), it should be utilized to it's fullest (as it was placed in the game to be used!) See how fast and how witty you are, you'll soon see it's much more challenging to be going so fast so often, and that Stunt Mode really opens up a new doorway on Fastest Times. It shouldn't be looked down on, just as more of a challenge to the racer to improve your skill and reaction times. The developers placed it in the game for a good reason, and that's so it can be turned ON and used,so let's all utilize it!
My scores were obtained through many many top-notch tries of mapping courses out, placing turbos and trick spots precisely, and basically nerding the hell out of it. So take this "book" i wrote into account and think about what I've said above. I just don't want my hard-earned records to be looked down upon because of Stunt Mode, try it out, it makes things even more challenging, and should be utilized to it's fullest! ;D

Absolutely can't top Suicide Swamp and Blackwater Falls...i tried and tried and tried again....was traveling at turbo speed alsmot 100% of Suicide Swamp and the best i can get is 1:28.2 and 2:22.4.....how in the hell did you get 1:26 and 2:20!?
Ice Crusher seems reasonable....and i can most likely match your time...just need more time to do so....Cypress Run...ehh idk about that though...
I'm not sure exactly mac haha. I guess a lot of it's just obtaining turbos wherever you get the chance...and not falling off the bike, which I tend to do a lot before I finally get my record breaking run. BTW Ermac I actually did try to break Joyride but I can't even get under 3 minutes. I don't know how alexandre did that. One day I'll figure it out though.

I really want to start recording my runs to post here, but I don't know what software to use. I've tried a couple of programs but have run into error messages that look like gibberish because my PC is a bit like the Millenium Falcon, but without the speed part. I have no idea what the eff I'm doing most of the time. If anyone could recommend a simple program that records video game play it would be much appreciated.
