-Pace yourself by pressing BACK to reduce your speed. There is no time limit. From time to time, return to get more points from flips.
-If you keep falling backwards after trying one of the vertical hills, try getting a good run up and holding LEFT to gain speed when going uphill. Then, hold RIGHT at about one truck's length before the corner. If done correctly, you will go forward and make it over the hill.
-When trying to go uphill, press UP + LEFT to get a boost.
-When in the air from a jump and are about to hit the ground, try landing on the start of a hill's downslope. You will get more speed. You will then have plenty of speed to go over another hill. You will sail across the screen and save time racing the track.
-When you are going downhill in the long downhill, press UP + LEFT. When you cross a bump, keep doing the same thing. This will make your truck do backflips. This way you will skip a lot of rough terrain, thus saving you time.
