    I usually take the red path (on both the N64 and Wii U), though if I'm not mistaken the yellow path is the quickest, granted you avoid hitting any of the porcupines.

    ^That. I don't play 64 or this track much, so other than being pretty sure I never go right at the first turn, I have absolutely no idea what I've ended up doing.

    I find red the best compromise between short & easy.

    And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

    Red, typically. I always figured it was the shortest route, but looking at this I'm thinking maybe I should just start using Yellow.

    I use yellow. It is the shortest and has the best angling.

    Blue, every time. Yellow is a little shorter, but the speed boost you can get from the hairpin at the end is 100% worth it.

    Used to take blue, but yellow is faster. Blue doesn't have those porcupines waiting to spin you out though.

    I end up taking cyan a lot

    Usually I think "This is the fastest one right? NO. Dammit. I'll remember next time."

    But I don't.

    None of these paths are squiggling erratically trying not to fall off, so none of them

    I always took yellow, felt it was the fastest. Feeling very vindicated right now.

    ^Except he didn't do Val'a Blue or yellow routes, which are easily the 2 fastest...

    ^Yeah, I was trying to figure which route was yellow in the video, watched it six times over, even------------thought my eyes was playin tricks on me. #4 was most similar, but it wasn't quite there.

    Yellow's my preferred route (figured it was the shortest route back when I first got MK64). Maybe blue is shorter. I should try it out some time.

    Results inconclusive. Further research required.
