    How do you get a speed boost when the countdown timer hits zero when you're about to set off?

    Right when the 2 starts to shrink (after growing)

    The very best time is when the 2 is at its biggest. The other two work as well, but the boost extra speed depends on the time you start slamming the gas. (it's not really that big of a difference)
