So me and the first place car are neck and neck. Finish lines comes up, oh crap i lost and i have to restart to get the badge. Results show, 1st place 1:37:83 Second place, 00:00:00. Thats what I call a close call.
If you get annoyed about the cannonballs hitting you and having your ship sunk, one trick I learned is when a cannon ball comes, shoot one more time right before the cannonball hits you. This will somehow glitch the game and you will not be sunk. Like it so people can see.
