How do you get a rocket boost at the start of the race?

  1. I used to be able to do them without fail, but lately I have gotten back to playing on occaision and cannot remember the timing for getting boosts at the start of a race. When exactly should I hit A?

  1. You will see Lakitu bobbing up and down as the lights do from 3..2..1..GO!! When he bobs up between 1 and GO, press and hold A and you will go shooting off.

  1. Press and hold "A" halfway between the last light and the signal for "GO!" That will get you a power boost.
