Hello! It's good to see someone playing this game again. You've got the right idea when it comes to playing the game a few times and practicing the movement. The movement in this game is pretty straightforward but getting good at it can save you a lot of time over the whole run. As for Individual Level speedruns, I'm not against them, but there's not really any competition for it. When this game was active a few years ago, we added categories for Disc 1 and Disc 2, which is basically like splitting the game in half (because the gamecube version comes on 2 discs, with roughly half the game on each disc). For the xbox and playstation 2 versions, you don't have to worry about switching discs or anything, it's just about playing the levels listed under the rules tab in order. I know it's not the same thing as individual levels, but those 2 categories kind of served the need of having shorter categories, and there were few enough of them that they were competitive for a little while.

Thanks for the advice. Im still on it today, cant wait to get my capture card and setting it up to set my own baseline and work from there also, is there any advantages playing the game on the Gamecube ??? Loading times maybe?? Since every runner was playing on the Gamecube

No. The gameplay is pretty much the same across all versions except the Xbox version has faster loading times. The reason everybody so far has played on GameCube is because that's the version they happened to own. I don't remember the loading times being that different, but it does add up over the course of the whole game. I'd guess Xbox is about a minute faster than GameCube, but I don't have any numbers to back it up. That's only an estimate.
