Sled + Course Combination Guide(N64+PS)

By GhillieGuideGhillieGuide. Last updated

This guide will quickly overview what I believe the best sled is on each course, some possible other fastest etc.

Caseywho has picked the 800 XC for all but a handful of runs, I think the margin for error is too low on that sled and often it means dropping down to 40s just for landing wrong.

I am currently switching between 3 sleds depending on course

Regardless of sled they perform better with maxed stats, so until exceptions pop up I am using maxed stats, use the save/load code Ckp041980 to give all sleds 100 wrenches for customization

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lobster

This sled is only able to be unlocked in the save/load menu using the code Kvv121766

Completely Maxed Stats make Lobster the first choice to try out and maybe optimally best on every course somehow

Pros:

Fast Recovery from Slowdown

Highest Top Speed

Less Slowdown from Most Things

Has Access to Unique Routing from Above

Cons:

Often launched in the air if accelerator is held, releasing it too often slows you down/reduces jump length

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sno-Razor

This sled is unlocked by completing the Special Event(s) or using the save/load code Bdk041473

When you need to go super fast but also not launch in the air as much Sno-Razor is your answer

Pros:

Very high top speed+accel with reasonable handling and stability

Faster than Pro Sleds when you have small jumps but still lots of straight aways

Doesn't jump up as easily as Lobster so saves airtime at cost of jump distance

Cons:

Easy to lose large amounts time on mistakes, similar to 800 XC but less punishing

Low Handling/Stability can limit ability to hug curves well

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

500 XC SP

Unlocked by completing the Semi-Pro Tournament(s) or the code Gvb081376

This thing doesn't look impressive compared to the previous 2 at first glance but I am finding it extremely useful on levels with lots of jumps, bumps and other obstacles most notably on the harder snocross levels

It saves you from most large time losses with it's handling and stability, it's a great beginner pro sled so I highly recommend it

Pros:

Easier to avoid collisions with better handling and lower speed/accel

Can lean back often and far to avoid dipping nose, much harder to pull back too far and slow down

Doesn't get as much air as either of the other options, and with a smoother landing it often has different routing options available that coincide with the course design(ramps, kickers, moguls)

Cons:

Gets demolished on straight-aways by the other 2 options, as your routing gets better this sled should naturally get worse

Can't jump quite as far or as often as lobster

Routing could change some of this, I don't expect 500 XC SP/Sno-Razor to hold off against Lobster forever but with current routing this appears to be as close to accurate as I can manage
