Ciao a tutti! Hello to all! 

I may be new here on the Forums, but I've been an active player just about every day for the past four months.
And my main interest as of recently has been racing.

But, it took quite some time to even get at the decent degree of where I stand now.

And besides the booster-obsessive racing persona that majority have come to know me by, I can also offer advice and guidance to others who are interested.


Therefore, I've created this video for the sole purpose of providing assistance to starter racers and/or those who seek the shortcuts in each track.

(I do happen to know just about all of them, but for the sake of not having the most agile dragon, I stuck with the most simple of shortcuts that could be performed over time with practice.)

* I am aware that my racing is a bit spazzy during these clips, due to Bandicam interfering with my FPS. It was very difficult to steer with such a choppy frame rate. My apologies for the inconvenience in viewing quality. Please, enjoy! And I hope this video does some sort of help! *

thank u, just not that i was searching for

its good u show the shortcuts.

Can you mabie do an experiment for me? i noticed that even with thootless ( that is really good to turn ) i cant turn as well, i tried to see some videos and i come to an hypotesy, that the ones that plays with computers are more advantaged with turning in race ( since i play with ipad )

Can you mabie see if you can figure out if it is right? cuz i love racing but if that is true i will keep losing :(

There used to be an art gallery here, and i apologise for all the great artists who made drawings for me, but sadly the forum decided that it did not want the last part of my signature, and doomed all the drawings.

Long story short, the bottom half of my signature got deleted, and I can't find the drawings.

My apologies again, hopefully it will get fixed!

Try This..

Hey there, Electro!

Thank you for your input!
Hmm, I have never played the game on the mobile version, nor have I ever played it on an iPad. Sorry!
But I can point out a simple trick that helps with turning for both PC and iPad users.
Have you tried tapping on the break during sharp turns?
Such as the first big turn in Gronkle Run?
Next time you're racing on a track that has many turns, just give the break a quick tap, do not hold down.
Also, clothing/gear could make a significant difference as well.
As you can see, there are little dragon "icons" present on certain types.

These are just several examples of gear you could be on the lookout for:
(This is the male version/but the female version also has these items.)


Shoulder Pads: 





Hope that helps!
