A loaded dice? A biased dice? A dice-gun? :)

A dice which can be used for cheating. ;D

Nope, it's just a track with... erm... you will see. :D

Quite a simple track, isn't it? ;)

It's quite nice. Perhaps a bit much water taking the creativity out of the shortcuts, but some nice bits and pieces in there.

a bit much water

If you can't cut that parts, try to fly over them! ;)

I didn't say there were too few shortcuts, just that you had to be back on the road too soon, before you land, preferably. :)
Title: Tips for ZCT 95

If you're in trouble to see how to drive a reasonable time in Z95, first of all have a look at the following demo:

Then you'll need to look for dual-way switching paths on the track. One reasonable initial suggestion is given by the pink arrows on the map below:

There are other (better) ways of pulling it off, though... if you wish further inspiration, the Competition Archives are always a great place to start - pick some of the replays from Z10, Z11, Z12, Z23, Z29, Z34, Z39, Z41, Z61, Z68 or Z79 for dual-way tracks at varying levels of complexity.

Like keeping speed at the lake/hill border with IMSA and jumping on the icy corner? Yeah, it sounds a lot better.

Great post, but you forget ZCT23 and ZCT34, those are the most important ones.

I had forgotten them at first by copying your newspost verbatim, but edited them in later on  :) (as well as Z39, which had, among other things, some dual-way action)

Or another way... a lot easier than Duplode's leading lap, ideal for newbies. Use Ranger!

ZCT79 was also a way-switching track  :D

Of course! ;D And there's Z78 too! A criminally under-raced track Z78 was, BTW - but on second thought it is not a good example of DWS due to the special rule we had there.

another victory by Duplode - managing to climb 8 places on the ZakStunts medal table in 2 months.
The next step will be a bit harder - 5 gold medals needed. I say this is not impossible during the current season... we'll see!

Yeah... congrats to the top Corks - they won't have any opponents in the remaining races.
