Rocket Racing Tips and Tricks

There are some movement techniques you’ll need to master if you want to place in the top of your races. The first is Start Boost, which calls on you to press the gas right when the fourth dot lights up when the race begins. Perfect timing means you will jolt forward.

You’ll then want to master drifting. The longer you drift, the bigger your boost will be when you let go.

Jump boosts are another big mechanic to master. There are objects on the track to jump over. Once you’re in the air, pressing jump will give you a boost.

Learn when to use your three turbo boosts. You’ll want to use them at opportune times during the race so you don’t waste them. Always save one for the end so you can burst towards the finish line.
