Here Are Some Last Minute Tips and Tricks

If you want to maximize your high score in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, then you are going to need to learn a few tricks. Here are some useful tips to help you lap all of your friends on the track.

  • Choose your character class with care. Each character class handles a little differently within this game. The class you choose should always work well within the track you are playing. For instance, a track with several winding turns demands a Turn class character. This class of characters allows you to take turns more easily.
  • There is a trick to the “?” boxes. When you smash through a “?” box, a spinning wheel of randomized power ups will appear. Rather than simply wait for the wheel to decide your fate, press the fire button to force the slot machine to quickly select a weapon.
  • Always keep your Wumpa fruit collection at 10. When you have collected 10 Wumba fruit, you will receive a heightened top speed. Beyond that, all of your weapons and power ups will become more powerful. Consequently, it is important to always keep a hefty supply of Wumpa fruit.
  • You can give yourself a boost at the starting line. When you are waiting for the race to begin, start revving your engine. If black smoke is billowing out of your exhaust when the race begins, you will receive a significant speed boost.
