    Chocobo Racing - Stats vs Success

    How are you guys doing on Chocobo Racing? Do you consistently beat the super birds in Free Race? Need an item?

    Did you beat Sakura with ease in the Swamptrot races?

    Do you kick ass in the circuit?

    I want to know...

    My bird is SS/S/C/C (capped stats) with Gallop And Canter.

    I always come in JUST behind the super birds. If I use a Speed Apple I can beat them. Especially StarOnion (the green one).

    My C3 and C4 races were super easy with a speed apple, but C2 I'm consistently coming in 2nd versus some birds with "interesting" stats.

    And I lost to Sakura like 10 times so far.

    How about you? Also any tips to improve my bird's stats?

    Well I have the pattern for Windy free races if you like:

    1st (no cheating bird)
    1st (no cheating bird)
    2nd (1 cheat)
    1st (no cheat)
    4th (3 cheats)
    2nd (1 cheat)
    2nd (1 cheat)
    2nd (1 cheat)
    (repeat)

    Cheat = StarOnion, InvincibleLeg, MeteorBrian
    So you'll know which races to use an item

    As for mission races, with max bird/skills, should be no probs at all

    Edit: C1-C4 = competition with other real players too, and with updates comes more ppl entering, can let it die down a bit if want

    I am sitting at SSS/SSS/B/F canter/gallop, I used stamina apple + final burst if I recall on my bird and went 1/1 on sakura.

    How do you do in C2/C1 races? I can't seem to tell a difference in the free races using Speed Apple/Stamina Apple with Final Spurt/Sprint commands. Outcome is always the same, or similar.

    Yesterday I got 1st in C2, today I got 3rd (same PC bird opponent). I'm curious if there's a way to improve my stats.

    Looking at your birds stats, it has almost capped top speed and stamina. Id play on your birds slight eva and go with a keep pace + shadow apple.

    Toss in the speed saddle to cap out your birds top speed and you should do ok.
