a neat little side project I decided to work on, I know it's not the fast and exciting all tracks that's the norm, but, I decided to challenge the idea of: "can this be done at all in a reasonable setting"?
These are the first two countries, done on Championship Mode (hardest difficulty)

What is X used for in this run

X is only pressed to either speed up to 1st from 20th, or a lost position, or getting a better angle on 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th to keep 1st place.

What About Nitros

  1. Nitros are used for emergencies only, in the case I need to rebound off of outside objects to stay afloat in 1st place.

Q&A

"Why is minimal nitro in the title if it is slightly inaccurate?" | Minimal doesn't mean "None" in the concept of usage. Nitros are only depleted if it's needed.
"Why are you holding X for long periods of time during the first race"? | It's something I wanted to gloss over, to get the viewer's expectation high, because not soon after lap 3 do I stop holding X ENTIRELY.
"Is this movie more of a challenge run or a playaround"? | Both! Since I playaround by changing gears occasionally and not pressing X for entire races, which forces me to find new alternate routes, even if it means to crash intentionally.
For now, this is only 29 minutes of Countries 1 & 2 (will consider continuing sometime down the line).

Welcome to the most ambitious project for Top Gear 2. This movie is an improvement over the currently published movie of 2:11:59.62 This movie beats the previous movie by 3 minutes and 50 seconds. This project took about 181 days to complete or a little over 5.95068 months, with some off-time, so more so 10 months+

What's New:

1. This run not only improves the previous movie but, increases RNG's chances to be better. I had to readjust to CPU car RNG for a multitude of factors, and it just so happened to be the car color choices. Each color car choice was particularly crafted. The color adjusts to faster starts, and better bumps from 2nd and 3rd. Not doing so, would be slower overall.
2. New wall glitch was discovered in India: Delhi. This was the hardest to find in regards to saving a multitude of minutes. The strategy is so precise that, it was almost impossible to do it at all. The speed variable has to be 198. From my current knowledge, it can't be one of the following speeds: 197, 196, 200, 201, 202, or 191, etc. It has to be 198 MPH. The inputs are also so very precise, the X press and release have to be frame perfect, and the delay from waiting is so I can utilize the left lane to set up the glitch.
3. Better current knowledge glitches are improved, saving multiple seconds.
4. Better Nitro management, better speed adjustments.

This version of Top Gear 2 was created by Vic Tokai & it was released one year later of the release of the original game.
This port has some limitations, for example: the race sound has different sound options to listen
The list here for the context
Genesis version limits
Race sound:
You can listen to the Sound Effects or Music only separated.
So you can't listen the Sound Effects & Music at the same time in the game
The soundtrack has 4 tracks
There are 13 sound effects in the game
This is a Tool-Assisted Speedrun of the Genesis version of Top Gear 2 (One track only (Auckland), so this ISN'T a TAS of the Entire game)

Game Info:

  • Top Gear 2 for the Super Nintendo is a 2.5D arcade-style racing game. Travel the world, and claim to be the world's best racer. Race through *46 gorgeous tracks*. Twist, Turn, 'Jump' my way to victory.

Game Elements:

  • Each track has its different elements such as Snow, Rain, Nighttime & Sunshine.

Collecting:

  • Throughout, I'll be able to collect money which allows me to buy certain upgrades, from Engines, Gearboxes, Wet & Dry Tires, Nitros, and Car Armor. The game offers different car color variants that I can choose from, however, only the Red Car color is used.

The Route: (leaving out tracks that don't have an upgrade)

  • Ayers Rock = $10K | Gearbox 2/$0
  • Loch Ness = $30K Nitro/$0
  • Niagra Falls = $54K Engine 3/Wet Tires/$0
  • Cairo = $50K Gearbox/$0
  • Munich = $80K Engine 4/$0

The run category:

  • Filed Under: 'All Tracks' Glitched New Game

Movie Goals

  • Aims for fastest completion
  • Improves over currently published movie
  • Uses Hardest Difficulty
  • Uses Heavy Glitch Abuse

Frame Info

  • Improved main menu by 2 frames - Instead of 3 down presses, input 2 down presses | after Options, input 2 up presses
  • Better Gear Optimizing - boost with 1st gear until 165 MPH then sit in 2nd gear until 200 MPH and then gear up to 4th gear, once in 4th gear wait until 223/228 to gear up to 6th.
  • Better Driving - I improve the driving segments of the run (the most vital part lol). Less outside stripe hits, stay on the track more until leaving for required maneuvering.

Trick Info

  • H.E.N.T:
There is a special type of boosting pattern, I recently discovered called a H.E.N.T (Hyper Extended Nitro Timer), which essentially allows you to carry 1 nitro into 2 downhill sections at a time. Normally, it was 1 per nitro, but, waiting for a little extra gives more speed throughout the tracks.
  • H.E.N.D:
There is also another mini trick called H.E.N.D (Hyper Extended Nitro Delay) which is essentially the same as the H E N T, but, delays the speed loss when going downhill from 1 nitro, if the destination is too prolonged from one end to the other.
  • Turn Throttling:
Turn Throttling as the name implies, allows for the car to throttle. What does this mean? It means that when the car travels on Snow or Rain element tracks, the car sets a timer where if the car travels too fast in one direction, it starts a slipping animation. In order to negate this timer, I use Turn Throttling, by pressing Left or Right every 3 frames, although some turns require up to 7 frame presses.
  • Side Turning:
Side Turning refers to releasing gas, to pass through car hitboxes at the start of races. It's mostly used for sharper-designed tracks.

Countries & Races:

  • Australasia - Auckland, Ayers Rock, Canterbury Plains, Sydney
  • Britain - Loch Ness, London, Sheffield, Stonehenge
