F-Zero is a Racing game of the future, with machines that reach more than 470 km/h top-speed

This movie shows a World Record timeattack of Mute City 1. It costed me extremely much time and nerves to test many different driving lines and find the fastest one.

The lap times are:

  1. 25"41 (starting from 0 km/h without booster)
  2. 23"19 (to reach this time I had to sacrifice some speed)
  3. 23"21 (the result of the speed-disadvantage but got a very good speed for the 4th lap)
  4. 23"17 (this time was only possible because of the very good speed-advantage of 3rd lap, caused speed-disadvantage for 5th lap though)
  5. 23"19 (the most optimized lap even with speed-disadvantage)

Total Time: 1'58"17

World Record Times of Mute City 1 (skill based):

Total: 1'58"41 (0"24 sec slower than this time)

Fastest Starting Lap: 25"42 (0"01 sec slower)

1-Boost Lap: 23"22 (0"05 sec slower)

Did a nice hard-turn at the end without changing the final time

For those who want to continue the World-Record breaking are welcome to use this movie further so hopefully we can once get a full movie with World Records for all courses.
