Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
So, you want to learn how to beat Cosmic Mario really easily in a race? Well, the only way to do that is to cheat! ...Or, get a head start...which is what I'm gonna tell you how to do.
When the timer starts counting down before the race, you should be on your toes. When the timer starts, hold forward; right as the timer hits 2, hold Z; then when the race starts, press A. You'll change to a yellowish color for a bit, and during that time, you'll be WAAAAAAY ahead of Cosmic Mario.
