    Welcome to the 9th Page!
    Benvenuti alla Pagina Nona!
    Oh good lord how long has it been? About half a year later I finally show up with an update it seems, and at last we move away from the 8th page (because people really cared at this point). This is also gonna be a major update to the thread itself as this Time Trial thread will become a universal timesheet for all Mario Kart games that I have times in, (any games that I don't have times on I won't add obviously). The exception to this, however, is Mario Kart: Double Dash!! since my disc is currently scratched beyond repair, and I'll need a new copy of the game before I can recover my times (unless there is also another way I'm not aware of).
    Because I'm making this more of a universal thread instead of making individual threads for each game, I have no idea if this is even in the appropriate section anymore, so to any mods, if there is a better section this thread will fit in, feel free to move it to there. Anyway, since this update will be huge, I'll divide up the sections into spoilers so that I don't murder anyone's computer like I did on the previous page. So, once again, here we go!


    Mario Kart 8
    【Normal】 1:55.801 → 1:55.732 → 1:55.275 → 1:54.997 → 1:54.047
    This massive improvement basically all came down to my decision to risk it and go for the NISC on Lap 3, and I'm so GLaD that I did. Made a massive .950 cut off of my previous PR and landed 9th Regionally somehow in the process. Unfortunately the song, although I do like it, now gives me bad vibes because of what followed the day after I uploaded this video.




    【Normal】 1:42.683 → 1:42.533 → 1:42.250 → 1:42.116 → 1:42.050
    When 1:41? Quite honestly I could get Top 10 here if I really wanted it. The only thing I really have to learn is the downhill hops, but even just that is probably the most crucial element to this entire track.



    【Normal】 1:22.080 → 1:21.625
    SUB'D IT! Very nice improvement and nice run overall :).




    【Normal】 1:40.817 → 1:40.490
    Apparently I couldn't pick up one extra coin until the end of Lap 2. Random improvement for the most part. Jamie wall smash strat works wonders, and it can also be extremely inconsistent.



    【Normal】 1:46.403 → 1:46.367 → 1:46.280 → 1:46.055 → 1:46.000
    All I wanted was a 1:45 lmao. Game trolled me clearly with this Omega'd run.



    【Normal】 1:45.169 → 1:45.158 → 1:45.116 → 1:45.047 → 1:45.037 → 1:44.967
    Very happy to get SUB here! Only Lap 1 was bad for me honestly.



    【Normal】 1:45.706 → 1:45.635 → 1:45.442
    Top 10 :). This run was actually on pace for 1:44 entering Lap 3, but I'm shit at Lap 3, so that clearly didn't happen lol.




    Regular Total: 57:17.414 → 57:14.572
    DLC Total: 26:28.226 → 26:27.030
    Combined Total: 83:45.640 → 83:41.602


    The Spanish Inquisition: 29/48 → 22/48
    Morton: 8/48 → 12/48 (SGF, rMMM, rCCB, rDDD, rWS, rMP, rTTC, dYC, dRR, dIIO, dBP, dBB)
    Mi MII: 8/48 → 11/48 (TR, MC, TM, Ed, MW, rDKJ, rPPS, rGV, dCL, dNBC, dRiR)
    Male Villager: 1/48 (rSL)
    Dry Bowser: 1/48 (MKS)
    Derek MII: 1/48 (CC)

    Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

    【200cc】 ?:??.??? → 1:11.155 → 1:10.986 → 1:10.364
    Standard PR, you'll see many of these. Former Top 10 when set.


    【200cc】 ?:??.??? → 1:23.391 → 1:23.332 → 1:23.275 → 1:23.136 → 1:23.117 → 1:23.048 → 1:22.858 → 1:22.812 → 1:22.756 → 1:22.706 → 1:22.617 → 1:22.467
    Very solid run for the most part. Lap 3 nerves hit bad, since this was the best pace I have ever been at on this track. Luckily I survived with a nice improvement.




    【200cc】 1:20.426 → 1:19.708
    Normal PR. Somehow this is still Top 10; then again, this Top 10 hasn't changed in a month.



    【200cc】 1:15.407 → 1:15.320 → 1:15.048 → 1:14.995 → 1:14.978 → 1:14.930 → 1:14.812 → 1:14.623 → 1:14.540 → 1:14.223 → 1:14.063 → 1:14.010 → 1:13.908
    Got the SUB and also reclaimed my World Record here. Lap 1 was pretty good, but Lap 2 and 3 were awful. Can mid 1:13.




    【200cc】 ?:??.??? → 1:29.832 → 1:29.160 → 1:28.992 → 1:28.976 → 1:28.837 → 1:28.670 → 1:28.536 → 1:28.259
    Very solid run for the most part. Lap 3 I hit a boost panel unexpectedly, which actually saved the run.




    【200cc】 ?:??.??? → 1:30.593 → 1:30.260 → 1:30.091 → 1:29.864
    Was a former World Record by a single millisecond lmao. Lap 1 was really good. The rest isn't anything special.




    【200cc】 1:25.144 → 1:25.098 → 1:25.014 → 1:24.995 → 1:24.963 → 1:24.952 → 1:24.910
    This track is still annoying as fuck. Former World Record.




    【200cc】 ?:??.??? → 1:26.202 → 1:26.075 → 1:25.720 → 1:25.594 → 1:25.468 → 1:25.178 → 1:24.991
    Another extremely close World Record. I managed to win only because I had a more direct line to the finish after the shortcut on Lap 3.



    【200cc】 1:20.666 → ?:??.??? → 1:18.800 → 1:18.150
    Another normal PR. Nothing too special. I believe this is still in Top 10.



    【200cc】 1:33.515 → 1:32.842 → 1:32.536 → 1:32.185 → 1:31.928 → 1:31.647 → 1:31.640 → 1:31.401
    Former World Record when set. This track is still just as annoyingly bouncy as it was on the Wii U.


    【200cc】 1:36.618
    Just a PR set very shortly after release date.



    【200cc】 ?:??.??? → 1:02.928 → 1:02.840 → 1:02.667 → 1:01.967 → 1:01.822 → 1:01.773 → 1:01.697 → 1:01.622 → 1:01.501 → 1:01.474 → ?:??.??? → 1:00.148
    Former World Record when set. Got this time out of nowhere and was happy to reclaim this track; though I lost it a few days later.



    【200cc】 ?:??.??? → 1:04.196 → 1:04.154 → 1:03.904 → 1:03.558 → 1:03.449 → 1:03.273 → 1:02.771 → 1:02.605
    2nd Worldwide currently. Just an average PR for me. Can probably take it a lot lower if I felt like it.



    【200cc】 1:25.768
    Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope



    【200cc】 ?:??.??? → 1:00.740
    Another Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope



    【200cc】 1:27.390 → 1:26.597 → 1:26.414 → 1:26.366 → 1:26.350 → 1:26.324 → 1:26.292 → 1:26.173
    Former World Record when set. Discovered cutting through the grass at the turn you brake drift is faster, but it was annoyingly inconsistent, so I didn't bother. Apparently that itself was the secret to 1:24. Can 1:25, but I haven't had the will to do this track lol.



    【200cc】 1:35.297 → 1:34.054 → 1:32.962 → 1:32.895 → 1:32.731 → 1:32.415 → 1:32.185 → 1:31.418 → 1:30.966 → 1:30.961 → 1:30.892 → 1:30.686
    Former World Record when set. This track is still just as hellish as it was on the Wii U.



    【200cc】 1:21.658 → 1:21.203 → 1:21.108 → 1:20.776 → 1:20.431 → 1:20.000 → 1:19.887 → 1:19.460 → 1:19.454 → 1:19.450 → 1:19.393 → 1:19.302 → 1:19.006 → 1:18.875
    Currently World Record right now. I got the SUB actually very recently, and I'm very happy to get that. Getting a consistent run here can pose quite a challenge, but I managed to pull it off. Lap 2 and 3 were really good, but Lap 1 wasn't the best for me. Can go about .250 lower here still.



    【200cc】 1:26.934
    Set live on stream. Somehow this was and still is Top 10.



    【200cc】 1:28.557 → ?:??.??? → 1:26.688 → 1:26.629 → 1:26.595 → 1:26.554 → 1:26.437 → 1:26.335 → 1:26.211 → 1:26.193 → 1:26.146 → 1:25.991 → 1:25.956 → 1:25.887 → 1:25.833 → 1:25.749
    Very nice run :). Lap 3 was a little weak, but Lap 1 and 2 were really good for me.



    【200cc】 1:19.299 → 1:18.479 → 1:17.930 → 1:17.679 → 1:16.425 → ?:??.??? → 1:15.984 → 1:15.886 → 1:15.729 → 1:15.506
    Former World Record when set. Constant back and forth between @Fintendo and I on this track. He currently still holds World Record here, but I haven't looked away quite yet ;).



    【200cc】 1:33.015
    LOL NOPE



    【200cc】 ?:??.??? → 1:28.422 → 1:27.772
    Somehow this track went from being moderately annoying to bouncy nightmare. This was somehow Top 10 at one point.



    【200cc】 0:59.154 → 0:59.114 → 0:59.069 → 0:58.966 → 0:58.850 → 0:58.849 → 0:58.769 → 0:58.711 → 0:58.588 → 0:58.550 → 0:58.506 → 0:58.455 → 0:58.405 → 0:58.215 → 0:58.028 → 0:57.943 → 0:57.872 → 0:57.856 → 0:57.818 → 0:57.790 → 0:57.783 → 0:57.755 → 0:57.528 → 0:57.511 → 0:57.473 → 0:57.461 → 0:57.383 → 0:57.348 → 0:57.334
    This time was set under the Invert Colors option in the Nintendo Switch system settings. Currently World Record; any improvement from here on out will probably be very minor.



    【200cc】 1:21.715 → 1:20.265 → 1:19.856
    Set when 1:18 was a cool time. Was 2nd Worldwide when set and was set very early on following the release date.



    【200cc】 ?:??.??? → 1:19.475 → 1:18.658 → 1:18.110 → 1:17.644 → 1:17.476 → 1:17.260 → 1:17.113
    Former World Record when set. Got this after suffering painful WR fails here. I can probably 1:16, but this track is and always will be annoying.



    【200cc】 ?:??.??? → 1:20.808
    Just a normal PR. Was Top 10 at one point.



    【200cc】 1:23.638 → 1:23.100 → 1:22.990 → 1:22.537 → 1:22.237
    Former World Record when set. I have no idea how people are pulling off .4XX Lap 2/3 here. Gotta look into that.



    【200cc】 1:27.485 → 1:27.444 → 1:27.032 → 1:26.890 → 1:26.848
    Former World Record when set. Not too bad honestly, but can improve it further.



    【200cc】 ?:??.??? → 1:20.648 → 1:20.462 → 1:20.351
    Set in early May and was former World Record when set. This doesn't use the iceberg strat at all, so there's much room for improvement.



    【200cc】 ?:??.??? → 1:24.820 → 1:24.644 → 1:23.237 → 1:22.886 → 1:22.739 → 1:22.521 → 1:22.454
    Former 3-way World Record tie when set. Probably the greatest and most hilarious thing I've done in Time Trials in this game. Very GLaD that the tie happened :laugh:.



    【200cc】 ?:??:??? → 0:48.229 → 0:47.744 → 0:47.525
    Was Top 10 when set. Just a normal PR.



    【200cc】 1:25.574
    More NOPE



    【200cc】 ?:??.??? → 1:19.875
    A normal PR that was set quite awhile ago. Former Top 10 also.



    【200cc】 1:13.212 → 1:12.794 → 1:12.651 → 1:12.447 → 1:12.409 → 1:12.155
    Currently World Record at the moment. Lap 1 and 2 are good, but Lap 3 was horrendous for me. 1:11 is possible.



    【200cc】 1:34.705 → 1:26.319 → 1:23.760 → 1:23.658 → 1:22.991
    Was 2nd Worldwide when set, this track is also extremely annoying to be consistent on.



    【200cc】 1:17.134 → ?:??.??? → 1:15.906
    This was also set really early on. Was Top 10 when set. Nothing too special about this run.



    【200cc】 ?:??:??? → 1:04.650 → 1:04.433 → 1:03.933 → 1:03.800 → 1:03.766 → 1:03.450 → 1:03.400 → 1:03.366 → 1:03.350 → 1:03.316 → 1:03.200 → 1:03.150 → 1:03.083 → 1:02.916 → 1:02.833 → 1:02.733 → 1:02.716 → 1:02.616 → 1:02.483 → 1:02.450 → 1:02.416 → 1:02.283 → 1:02.250 → 1:02.183 → 1:02.133 → 1:02.083 → 1:02.033 → 1:02.016 → 1:01.916
    Probably the track I dedicated the most to. I managed to pull the World Record down by nearly 3 seconds and managed the first 1:03, 1:02, and 1:01 runs here and pushed the boundaries past what was possible each time. Though no longer World Record, it is probably still one of the better runs I've set in this game.



    For Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I exceeded the media per post limit, so I put the video links below each photo instead of embedding the video. Does the same thing either way. Also, other Mario Kart games will be added in a later update, as this post is becoming enormous and it sometimes causes the tab to freeze momentarily. I plan on adding at the minimum Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart DS, regardless of how trash my times are in those games and regardless of how many years ago I've set times in those games. Not sure if I want to add Mario Kart: Super Circuit, since I only have one time in that game, and I set that several years ago also. Anyway, I reorganized the main post to accommodate for the changes made, and with that we conclude the beginning to a still ongoing update. I'll be back with other games and improvements in these games later on ;).
