Diddy Kong Racing Cheats For Nintendo 64

  1. Play as T.T.

    To play as T.T., you must race each course in the Time Trial mode until T.T. comes out to challenge you, and he won't appear until the pre-programmed track record in a particular track is beaten by a large margin. When he challenges you, you must defeat him in a race on that course. Once you do beat him, a small T.T. symbol will appear on that particular track. You must beat him on all tracks to get him as a playable character.

  2. Find The Fifth Secret World

    First, collect all the amulets and trophies. Next, go to the front of the lighthouse and honk at it. It will then transform into a rocket, which can take you to the space world.

  3. Make more out of zippers

    Just before you run over a zipper let go of the A button. Instead of a small boost (the same as one blue ballon) you will get a huge boost (the same as 3 balloons).

  4. Developer's Times

    Defeat Wizpig for the second time. After the ending and credits, a series of times will be listed. These times are the best times recorded (in Time Trial mode) by Nintendo and Rare staff during the production of the game.

  5. Adventure 2

    Get the four original trophies, to unlock the secret world. In this world, get all the baloons, and the final trophy. (Giving you 47 baloons, and 5 trophies). Take on Wizpig (the one in the fifth world, future fun land).

    When you win, you'll unlock the ''Adventure Two'' option. In this mode, you collect silver colored baloons, and all the courses are mirrored. In addition, you can now choose to play a course in ''Adventure'' or ''Adventure 2'' mode, in the track mode.

  7. Go faster in the car

    There is a way to remove the speed limit of 60 MPH. Rapidly press the gas button, and you will build up speed to about 90 regardless of the character. Note: This only works with the car.
