A writer discussed Mater's poor turning ability. You do not need 40 acres to turn him around, and face in another direction, just press JUMP (A), and turn the DIRECTION STICK while his tires are off the ground. (I turn my stick to the left, so he doesn't get confused and think that I want a Barrel Turn) If you barely tap it, he barely turns, instead of trick spinning.
