- Safe: 3/10
- Optimal: 4/10
- You generally want to avoid using any of the overhead tracks as they're are slower unless you're doing the optimal route below which only saves time in certain spots.
- If you feel you need to, grab the DK barrel right after the halfway.
- If the beetle at 26s kills you do a jump before him to avoid this.
- After your first roll of the level, jump, then buffer a roll out of that jump, into the cart. This is faster because buffered rolls have more downwards momentum than normal rolls.
- You want to skip the DK Barrel after the halfway so you remain solo Dixie up until Low-G Labyrinth.
- Jumping up slopes will save you time.
- This route uses some of the overhead tracks to help you gain speed.
