    Thanks for the review @Levy3Poop! I'm glad you enjoyed it, but I'm sorry you weren't able to compete "Superman Stuff" or "Knuckle Buster". How far did you make it? Especially in the case of Superman Stuff I would say that there are two main tricks: (a) getting the vehicle lined up and the the tires situated in the right place and (b) using inertia to drag/shove the truck through rather than just getting it hung up (high centered usually).

    The same thing applies somewhat to Knuckle Buster, but the truck is much more fragile so you can't be as brutal - and the trick here is to keep a very close eye on the angle of the front wheels - they can easily be pulled around and broken when they snag.

    Finally - I've seen other people play and noticed a difference in my play-style vs some of theirs. I very actively control the orbit camera to keep an eye on "trouble areas" of the vehicle - the downhill side in many cases (suspension behavior, tire perch) or in other cases such as Knuckle Buster I'm often watching the side where a front tire is most likely to hang up.

    EDIT: I forgot to say that 19s is a very good time for Lateral Move, congratulations! I think my best time on that scenario is closer to 25s so you've discovered some secret sauce which I don't have yet. ;-)

    Haha yeah, at least Lateral Move made me feel better about myself! On Knuckle Buster, I got stuck at that first big rock. the closest I came to making it over was just getting stuck with my front wheels on top lol. On Superman Stuff, I got stuck at that second little buggar obstacle. Again, the farthest I got there was just getting stuck with the front wheels up lol.

    To help me out... for Superman Stuff are you getting stuck before or after the first checkpoint? (I'm not sure how your obstacle numbering goes. ;-) )

    For Knuckle Buster I'd say that just hammering on it until you establish a pattern that lets you get up over it works. FWIW I think I'm generally on the left side (where the truck naturally migrates to) and moving towards the right a little, then I try to get as much 'pop' as possible when I break over. I suppose that the idea is to transfer mass both forwards and up as the front wheels break over the obstacle so that the underbelly catches later and you can get the rear wheels forward.
