At the beginning of each race in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, gamers have the ability to trigger a Start Boost. As its name implies, the Start Boost gives you a quick boost that’ll help push you ahead of other racers, especially those unfamiliar with the Start Boost. To trigger the Start Boost, you’ll need to pay close attention to the series of countdown lights at the beginning of each race.

There are four lights in total, with three red lights and a final green light. Not only do these lights tell you when the race officially begins, they also help you time your Start Boost. Specifically, you’ll need to wait to press the accelerator button until the moment right after the third red light illuminates. With this cue, press A on Xbox One, X on PlayStation 4, or B on Nintendo Switch to begin accelerating.

As you hold to accelerate, your Boost Bar will partially fill as indicated by the orange meter. Seeing your Boost Bar fill is a good indication that you’ve timed your Start Boost correctly. Keep holding the accelerate button as the light turns green, and you should trigger your Start Boost, helping you leap ahead of the competition right at the beginning of the race.
