    When I play online i see that lots of players don't use the quick recovery after the getting hit by the POW block. Its you can execute it by pressing up on the D-pad(Game Cube controller).

    I hope this will make online play more exciting.

    Reasons why this helps.
    - After being hit you will remain your original speed
    - If you are first place, drivers behind you will lose there weapons.
    - You can over take a player who doesn't use this.
    - You will win more matches.

    I... don't understand [​IMG] Are you saying this is a way of avoiding spinning out from the POW block?

    Its a quick recovery saves like 5 sec. You will spin once instead of 5 times and will remain your speed afterwards.

    up on the d-pad is the mapping for stunts , so i guess that shaking the remote/wheel like doing a stunt will do..

    thanks for the tip!

    On gamecube controller Up is also wheelie. Just press up when your about to get hit by POW-blocks. Or shake it on wii-mote.

    Thanks, I'll definitely try this. It should give a nice advantage as all other players will be affected by it

    Some says jumping threee times with a good synchro will completely prevent the pow block making you spin.

    Don't know if it works or not.
