There are several different ways to help succeed in Rumble Racing. Your biggest focus should be to go through as many booster rings as you can. You also need to avoid as many tornadoes as possible. Courses also contain hidden shortcuts that you can only find going through booster rings. When you see "Locked On" or "Danger" at the bottom of your screen, this is the indicator to press to defend yourself from attacks.
In each of the four courses, there are shields you may pick up to protect you from other racers as well as tornadoes. These come in handy, so be on the look out for them.
It should be noted that while playing as Terra or Ventus if successfully attack another racer, you will gain a temporary speed boost. Aqua does not have this ability, but she has a longer ranged attack to make up for the lacking boost.
