F-Zero AX is the arcade version of F-Zero. It has some unique cross-platform capabilities where you can unlock ships and tracks for use on your gamecube F-Zero GX. SkedarKiller shares all the ins and outs of F-Zero AX below. Enjoy!
What is Bahamut? Can you get it?
Are there any machines in
Rumors implies that F-ZERO AX is an unlockable mode that can be accessed in F-ZERO GX through cheat devices such as AR, and that the "ENTIRE" AX content exists in GX. Is that true?
Not quite, there's a misconcption regarding this whole discovery. It was discovered that leftovers from F-ZERO AX's racing mode could be unlocked in GX through cheat devices. However, due to misinformation being released online after the major discovery, the truth was left hidden. It is not true that the entire F-ZERO AX content can be found within F-ZERO GX. Only traces of AX content was left within GX's data. There's AX physics, ghost data, exclusive AX menus, proper functioning etc. that can only be accessed through AX's data. There's also a lot of beta GX/AX content included only within AX's data.
What are the different ghosts that can be raced against?
When selecting a course, you'll be given an option to race against a ghost of your liking. You'll be given five options:
*NOTE: The menu only displays the first four options. In order to make the Staff Ghost option to appear, one must hold the brake button. It will turn the "Champion Ghost" option into "Staff Ghost".

What is the exclusive F-ZERO AX technique called T-Drift (Turbo-Drift)?
Since F-ZERO AX has slightly different physics compared to F-ZERO GX, the technique known as Snaking in GX behaves differently in AX.
To perform the T-Drift technique, one has to use a machine with a certain grip condition and cornering ability. Usually, machines with strong grip can pull this off, as long as they also have strong drifting abilities.
Machine examples: Fire Stingray, Fat Shark - or custom built such as: Heat Dragon-EX, Aerial Whale-EX, Rush Eagle
Similar to Snaking, T-Drift will only work with the machine settings set to max acceleration and if the grip of the machine is broken (in a drift state). To achieve this, try to alternate between L+Left and R+Right while also tapping the air brakes. Once the grip is broken, one only needs to keep holding A+R if facing in the left direction, or A+L if facing in the right direction. With proper handling combined with another technique called MT, speeds of 4000 km/h can be reached true this powerful technique.

There also exist an F-ZERO AX leaderboard from 2003/2004 with top times from all of the courses, using the T-Drift technique.
