what you need to do in the first part is to go for the first balloon on the right. the trainer might get the first one or two balloons if they are on the left, but you will get the rest on the first stretch. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

as for the birds that come out of nowhere and hit you b4 you even see them, i found them easy to avoid if you just move diagonally for most of the time rather than straight. it will barely affect your time. you should do so towards the end of the 2nd stretch, and at the end of the race.

personally i didn't see the big deal about the chocobo race, i did it in a half hour. the main thing is to keep a positive attitude, and it's alot less frustrating the less birds hit you, that's more important than getting balloons.

good luck- it can't be worse than the butterfly game, i can only find >6< blue butterflies!!

I got 0.00 on my fourth or fifth try today, with 13 balloons and 0 birds. If you get way ahead of the trainer, the birds just stop coming for you. Either that or i just got real lucky cause very few birds came for me. Basically, in the first, straightaway part of the race, you need to get 3 or 4 of those balloons-just let the chocobo go straight and he's a touch faster than the other person. In the winding part of the course, don't go for the balloons, just make a beeline for the finish. Just make sure you go on a line that makes you run into a bunch of balloons. Eventually you'll get lucky and win with 0.00

Get more than 15 ballons and you are done, basicly, i got it on my third try, 16 balloons, 3 birds, and a time less than 40 secs, 39.8 i think. you just have to be lucky enough to get the balloons on your side at the start, she goes for them but gets stuck behind you, and then just avoid the occaisional bird and concentrate on the balloons, there are two rows of bal;loons after the first stretch, and you can get the one on each side if you steer quick, meaning you end up with many more ballons than needed, but you end up going in a

pattern, straight after the race you'll see a guy to the left saying you did well to beat her, he used to guard a path in the top west that gives the unpowered caladbolg, so go there now, it isn't a seperate area, so there is no green dot on the map, and you have to get off your chocobo.

You don't need under 0.0.0 to get that - I have that, and I haven't managed under 0.0.0 (though I have improved my time to 0.6.4, giving me renewed hope I might manage it).

To get the weapon all you need is to beat her in the race when shes at the entrance to the calm lands.
