First thing i do is go into the options and disable the 'outline' which immediately doubles the framerate, and doesnt change the looks of the game all that much... i get (what it looks like) between 30 and 60fps, opposed to the 12~15 fps when things get crazy.

I try and get ahead of everyone as soon as possible anyway. It's a gorgeuos looking game though! Playing it on an HDTV with my VGA adapter and HDMI upconverter is a dream! :D

I did it! Under 2 minutes! :D This was pretty much a perfect race but I think a better time is possible if you can collect more tokens for more boosts. Oh and thanks for the tip about turning off the outline segata! That really improves the game performance!

Thanks for the tip, this is a massive improvement. No new time from me yet as I'm enjoying the one player game too much!

hehe, cool! Last night i spent lots of time on all the tracks collecting stars. Some of them are really fun, almost mario kart/sonic all stars fun!

In older games and even now the cell shading outline is done by duplicating the character geometry, scaling it just a tad up and flipping the faces (then texturing them black)... so by removing the outline, we actually reduced the character polycount by half!!
