Test you connection and see what your rating is. http://www.pingtest.net/

Check your server region, Steam > Settings > Downloads tab and under Download region and selecting the region that you are in or the one closest to you.

Turning off unnecessary background processes can help a little bit. Gamebooster is a free program that you can use that helps with the process. http://www.iobit.com/gamebooster.html

Do like I said and choose the closest one to your region. Also, if you use a wireless router you might want to reset it once a month-that may also help a little.

I chose austria as my download region, cuz it's the closet to my country. And no I do not have a wireless router.

What was your line quality grade? If it's anything below a B I would say you should upgrade your internet.

So we've eliminated the possibility of your internet and server region being the reasons for your high ping. You may want to give Gamebooster a shot.

Another question. Have you taken notice as to what other peoples ping is on the servers you play on?
Derpy Cake Feb 5, 2013 @ 10:01am 
Well I already had gamebooster and it help just a tiny bit. I like to play on like mario kart server and Saxton Hale server ect. on the normal mario kart server almost everbody has 30-50 ping. And on the ˝special˝ server everbody has 50-100 ping. Ohh btw I am redownloading the game to see if it would help 'cuz I had a lot of custom skins and stuff...and some of my animations didn't quite work as intended.

You all are lucky compared to me my ping almost is never below 700 and I've tried everything.

While some isps might be worse than others, you are limited by physics on how fast you can connect to an american server, that being said you should be able to get under 200 ping assuming things are half decent.
