Season 3 Detonator

#1 Posted by Hammerjelly (221 posts) -

Ok, so I've done the detonator in season 3 at least 10-15 times and I can only get within 2-3 seconds of first place. I've tried drifting, not drifting, and combinations of both. Did anyone else have problems with this one? Or is there a shortcut that I haven't seen?

Is this the one with the truck? The same thing keeps happening to me too (on a couple of the detonators actually). 
 
I think the problem is that they expect of a level of skill above that of players like me.

yeah its the one with the Truck. Its ridiculous. I have no real problems with the races or  other modes, I can place first in those ok. But these Detonator events are stupidly hard.

Try backing up a bit more behind the finish line at the very start of the race. The timer doesn't start until you cross the starting/finish line so you can back up and gain more speed in your beginning.

Wow! I'm definitely going to have to try this. It could definitely shave several seconds off my time.

Yeah the detonator was the hardest for me to get first too. With a little practice (and no collisions) you can get fist eventually.
