    in a nutshell :

    - tilt the wiimote to steer.
    - 2 for gas , 1 for brakes.
    - d-pad : up for throwing forward, down for throwing back.
    the right/left arrows were supposed to throw in these directions, but instead it just throws back/forward...
    - hold the B button to drift (when choosing manual drifting). a mini-turbo will charge , first to blue and then to a red flame, which means a slightly longer boost.
    to start a drift , first tilt the wiimote to steer left/right (dont leave it straight, it might drift in the opposite direction).
    - hold the A button to look back.
    - to do tricks , simply shake/wave the remote/wheel while going airborne.. that should do it. there are 3-4 tricks (i think its up/down/left/right, based on your first motion, but i'm not sure)

    have fun!

    lol k .. thanks very much [​IMG]

    drifting with the b-button is very weird .. i feel my fingers already near broken xD

    btw: what about quick starts at race beginning and bike boosts?

    Although I only played for 5 minutes until I went back to the Wii Menu and got an error, I know that when starting, holding gas at '2' gives you a nice boost.

    For start boosts you need to start holding down the throttle between 1 and 2 seconds. Say about 1.5 seconds to go. If you hold it down for longer than that, say from 2 seconds onwards you get a bad start.

    well i tried pumping the gas , trying to do a trick on the launch signal , but didnt get the formula...
    thank you guys for the starting tip...

    by the way , i forgot : do a weird motion (terrible motion sensing) to do a wheelie with the bikes.. i gave up on that , usually it just does the wheelie in a bad angles , and i run into a wall or fall out... :-(
