Oh god...the Burning Rangers track
Whoever designed this track needs to be castrated. Just, jesus christ, what were they thinking? I've been trying for an hour and am unable to even get 3rd in the world tour race for it. It's just such a clusterbomb of a track there;s 0 margin of error but it doesn't matter for the AI because of their rubberbanding.

Is there ANY character that's good with this level?

I have trouble with this track too, what confuses me the most is the green arrows - their animation always makes me think I have to turn THE OPPOSITE WAY they're pointing.

I think the only advice I could give is: try using a character with good handling.

There are many characters. Just try to find one with descent handling and acceleration, I'd suggest 3 accel minimum, and depending on your level of comfort with handling 2 min. but I'd suggest 3.
Like you I hated this track at first, but now it's one of my fave's.

It's the best track in the game.
No joking.

I decided that those two videos were a bit too "clean". So here's another one, also using Accel mod (4/3/3/2) in which I take substantial hits and where the first lap is decidedly "dirty".

That should should you a few tricks for how to recover from these things.

Finally, I got the Gold for the World Tour race! Needless to say, I have newfound respect for Amigo. I'll be using him more :D

I noticed though in lap 2 on the part where it splits to two paths, the right one with the boost gate and ramp, Amigo sometimes gets stuck on it and can barely move. Anyone else experience this?

@Gigan II I havent' noticed that, but if you're refering to the part I think you are(1:30 of prime sonic's last vid...for ref), stick to the left path, it's faster.

Funny, I know that's the faster path, but I've had far more race-costing wipe outs in the left path than the right path. Kinda why I avoid it so much. I guess I better go and work on that.

EDIT: Finally got it right on the third try without smacking into the ramp on the transformation ring. And it's still possible to get in with a level 3 boost. Nifty. :)

Certainly not the best but you gotta love the originality of the design. I ended this race like 2nd in A class with Sonic and Boost mod. Here's a hint. Handling, boost, win. With enough handling, you avoid the walls easily. With enough boost, you can catch up with tricks. Acceleration is barely ever useful but that's me. I like med-speed, high handling and med/high boost for my races. I found I was best with those.

I usually try to play as AiAi or a character with solid turning and low overall top speed in this level.

I think it is fine and as a fan of Burning Rangers I think SUMO did a pretty good job with the unique nature of the game's level progression. I really like hearing Chris' dialog and seeing Tillis and Shou fly around the course too.

The Billy Hatcher level is the real crapper of the game. Beyond it just sucking, I have no idea why we got another Billy level but no Streets of Rage, Shenmue (would have loved the pier around Christmas) or Phantasy Star courses? Come on.
