1) Stay close to inside edge on corners, this will give you the edge on tight corners this also can get closer to the front of the pack!
2) Try using your character type to your ability, speed types should always try to keep in a straight line, fly types should try and get perfect moves (score=x)this gives you extra gravity points, Power types have longer attack time when using the item that looks like a fist and a better chance of getting this (try using the short-cuts that looks like sonic running when in the fight position, this includes the springs and laser area's!)
3) Don't always go for the coolest gear such as "the chaos emerald." It always has a downside like no gravity (like mag) of runs on rings (The chaos emerald) this just dosn't help you in winning a race.
On Mobius Strip theres a giant monster you have to beat in 5:00 in order to win. Let first me say that "beat" in the game directions mean destroy not get ahead of him because it is impossible. In order to destroy the robot, whenever he activates gravity dive pull up/back on the L analog stick and keep flying into the glass (It gains you extra speed). Next try to fly into the last set of glass and be the first to hit him (the computers can't hit him right). Hit him at the bottom where that purple rock is and keep doing this to destroy him.
When you finally get to the Mobius strip course, your mission will be to defeat Abis in 5 minutes! In order to finish a lap, you have to damage Abis twice. In order to damage him, wait for the automatic gravity trigger. Use meteor bursts to keep up your gravity bar and make sure you get to him first. If you don't he won't take damage. On the second lap, he'll shoot bullets a you after you damage him and on the final lap, he'll shoot meteors. Beat him and watch the awesome ending.
The Angel/Devil board is an unlockable board you get for beating the Babylon story. It transforms in two different ways. Collect enough rings to shift gears. Look at the gear icon and it'll be spinning. Yellow is the angel gear and purple is the devil gear. Press A as soon as the icon spins to the one you want to transform into it. Now, I'm not sure what the angel gear affects, but the devil gear gives you a pretty good speed boost and looks awesome to boot.

You get "chaos emerald" as extreme gear [gear 46] (only useable with sonic). When you start a race you will keep walking until you have collected at least 1 ring. Super Sonic's speed is like any other racer (around 150)

- when you reach an amount of rings (I don't know exactly which count, it'll be like 50-60) you get a blue-shield-like thing in front of sonic, and he'll go a bit faster (180) you can knock players down in this mode but you can't take the bouncer passages.
