Press Y on the leaderboard for any track and then scroll down to pick a time to beat. I would obviously suggest picking the slowest one there. I wasn't given a massive selection of times, so with more and more people playing this may eventually get harder but I'm not sure.
PINGOWSKIBetter to do this as soon as possible, since you can only download one of 30 best ghosts.

RossCowanAs above, i'd do this one ASAP.

Some of the Mirror versions in particular still have some very slow times, but once enough people have played this it'll be very very difficult.

planting42Exactly as above. I've got the achievement and am now setting slow times in mirrored races. Get this while you can. It only lists the top 30 times!

StevannoIf struggling, try the mirrored tracks

REB3LJust beat your ghost on the last mirrored track - thanks planting42!

damekinokooh, ultimately this achievement requires you to be in the top 30 of the leaderboardssmile

MysticalDoomPlanting42 you legend. I tried to only beat it by a fraction so hopefully we can keep it low!!

MastaGusIf they do not reset the leadboards this is gonna cause some raucus...

Ar0nP1aYz05This achievement sucks

planting42Remember to use mirrored when going for this as the regular ones will be destroyed thanks to another achievement -
Hotshot RacingMarking TerritoryThe Marking Territory achievement in Hotshot Racing worth 142 pointsSet a personal best time on every track. (No mirrored track required.)

JACKKAVAlso a quick tip as I've just found out unlocking it.
Some of the times at the bottom of the lists are one run times.

The best times are achieved on 2nd and further runs as the speed you cross the finish/start line is almost certainly faster then the initial running start the game gives you whether your boosting or not

CurtiesonI found that the Desert had some of the slowest times when compared to the Staff Ghost. The Mountain is all 3-4 seconds faster than the Staff time already...

This achievement is going to be a bear...

Nuclear Blast78I found Casino Run to be one of the easiest. I beat the ghost by around 5 seconds.

AthleticMist759I tried Castle Funfair mirrored and was finding the times to be too optimized. Went to Heated Highway mirrored and got it there by beating a 33 second ghost. Now I can safely use its achievements for the Microsoft Rewards App. I'm not the greatest at arcade racers but yeah a lot of the mirrored tracks aren't heavily optimized yet so if you can, go for it while the unoptimized times are still there. I hate it when games have achievements like this, it can turn you into a tryhard which can eventually lead to raging which thankfully didn't happen to me.

NegativeCreep08This one is already looking impossible, all the mirrored tracks are now several seconds ahead of the dev time.
Posted by NegativeCreep08 on 28 Sep 20 at 08:51
FaultyshadowThis achievement will now provoke me to rate this game at 0.5, I’m sure if we make enough outcry the devs can clear leaderboards once every month making it easier to earn this achievement.
Posted by Faultyshadow on 30 Sep 20 at 06:13
ДжэйI see track times are going to be only harder. Did it on suggested track, used same car all ghosts use, but manual, maybe it is not needed as entire track you need to go 6th gear, zero drifts, learn the track, now the hard part: remember to use boost slightly before starting next lap and right before the start line too, they give full boost you after start line, use boosts on muddy road after corners, keep optimum line, will take some time, but still very possible.

TahooperJust did it today on Desert -> Area 51 (Mirrored).

I was able to do it on my 2nd lap (~27 seconds at the time of this comment) so I'd say this track is still doable for the achievement.
Posted by Tahooper on 09 Oct 20 at 12:21
nuttywrayThank you Tahooper! That worked for me
Posted by nuttywray on 09 Oct 20 at 19:32
LeiChatI made the mistake of trying against a Dev ghost first. Oops.
Posted by LeiChat on 16 Oct 20 at 11:12
SilentRich69Tahooper your an absolute lad.
Posted by SilentRich69 on 18 Oct 20 at 16:34
JeffchobTahooper's comment needs to get put into the OP's guide! Spent far too long messing around on other tracks... Nailed it on Desert Area 41 (mirrored) on my second lap (the lowest placed ghost was just over 28 seconds)!!
Posted by Jeffchob on 19 Oct 20 at 23:02
Throni360Temple ruins mirrored. 30th place is almost 1 second slower than the dev time. It's still doable.
Posted by Throni360 on 25 Oct 20 at 13:01
PatriotsMike111+1 for Throni360's suggestion of Temple Ruins mirrored. I'd note that use the first lap to get an idea of how to carry speed, a lot of the lap can be taken without braking. Then, after the last corner, use the boost to maximise the speed across the line, just before your boosts are restored
Posted by PatriotsMike111 on 31 Oct 20 at 22:11
SeitzzTemple ruins is still solid it's within 1 second of the dev time with plenty of room. I used Marcus and the Carbon. I did the same as PatriotsMike111, take your first lap as an out lap getting used to the track, you can hold down the gas for almost the entirety of the lap. As you round the final corner use a boost to give you a higher speed as the lap timer starts again when you cross the line. Just use your boosts on the straights and you'll have plenty of time. I managed 34 something, ~3 seconds under 30th place, and posted a #3 time, so there should be plenty of room to keep getting a ghost beaten as 30th is around 37 seconds.

Untold Legend22Also a really great chance to do this now with the title update. I was easily able to post a top 30 time last night on the new Marina track. Mirrored is still the easiest way to go as the new tracks had not had 30 times even recorded yet. Get it while it’s hot!

DaveOwlReally struggling with this. Wish I had seen this one sooner!
Posted by DaveOwl on 09 Mar at 23:23
suiteTry ocean world reversed track I did it first try and got a top 12 it’s super easy. Good luck DaveOwl.
Posted by suite on 27 Apr at 01:12
Clutch RinoThe times on all tracks seem impossible to get.

Edit: Just got this on Ocean World and beat it by 0.012 it was that close. The last quarter of the track is the hardest to do. Trick is to keep drifting the whole time you're boosting so when you stop you have a boost bar to spare. I just got my bar filled in time on the last corner as the ghost passed me and boosted instantly. Was damn close, didn't think I would make it.

VanGekogot it in tempel race reversed and i crashed in the wall before final.
Posted by VanGeko on 06 Jul at 01:01
KooshMooseGot it easily in the Jungle - Temple - Reversed race using the Mirage (Speed) version of the first car.
Posted by KooshMoose on 02 Sep at 14:29
ITS ALivExNot sure how fast these time are disappearing as I no longer see Koosh in top 30 on Jungle - Temple (Reverse). I had to use Marcus' Carbon to beat the 30th ghost.
Posted by ITS ALivEx on 03 Sep at 10:04
The WyzerdDesert - casino run mirrored - I just got #21 top 30 should be doable. Good luck ! Your second lap is always faster. Boost into the finish line for good start in next lap
Posted by The Wyzerd on 04 Sep at 15:33
GhostInZshJust got this on the mirrored version of Temple Ruins where I've come in 22nd. I've struggled to beat the staff ghost on most courses.

Use Marcus > Carbon and use proper racing lines (for left turns go as far right possible and turn in as close to the "apex" of the corner as possible). There is no requirement to drift for any of the corners if you attack them right. Be smart with boosts using them only on the straights as well as one just before you start the lap and you should make this with some comfort.
Posted by GhostInZsh on 05 Sep at 14:58
lankyjustini jsut did the same on temple ruins. 34.164 on first attempt. might want to get in sooner as the times drop as GhostInZsh has already dropped a few places in a day.
Posted by lankyjustin on 06 Sep at 10:35
ChryslerJust got in on Castle Funfair mirrored using Marcus - Carbon, my time 24:652, 30th place.

Took a few laps to get right and just sneaked it in by fractions of a second.
Posted by Chrysler on 07 Sep at 01:00
Vok 250Can confirm Temple Ruins reverse is still doable. Just got in myself.
Posted by Vok 250 on 10 Sep at 00:01
Wyyvern^ Just got 18th on Temple Ruins reverse. 30th time is currently 34.342.
Posted by Wyyvern on 14 Sep at 20:18
JahonCrossNormal Temple Ruins are also doable using Marcus - Carbon, just keep your speed above 230 and save at least one boost for the final turn to the finish line.
