Proper lag reduction at the start of the level will save about 3-4 lag frames, or two real-time frames. The inputs are C-Right, then Mariocam C-Down & C-Left.


Standard Shell Route

Note: this video shows the proper lag reduction for the ending. Make sure to stay in Mariocam C-Down, and keep the camera facing the out-of-bounds area.

Koopa Manipulation

This video explains the RNG that affects how fast Koopa the Quick finishes the race.

Doing a ledgegrab on the very edge of the platform here can manipulate Koopa into stopping earlier. You can also just stand near the corner without ledgegrabbing. Get up right as Koopa crosses the bridge.

Mountain Clip Route

This route guarantees that no balls will get in Koopa's way during the race, so it might give you faster times on average. This is explained in more detail in the above video.
